Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in Do you think the money involved in soccer is driving the real entertainment away?
Well i to stick to the topic, The beauty of football is that a much smaller team can beat a bigger team on a good day. No matter how much money you have in theory Man city can lose to a club like Leeds or newly promoted Fullham on any given day. It happens less and less these days but it still happens wherest in a sport like F1 If somebody has the best car in the field fat change they will be competing for victories on a regulair basis.
The thing is Football clubs and especially english clubs are becoming more and more a play thing for the extreme rich to dumb their money in. Offcourse there is nothing wrong with that aslong they are commited to the club they own but what if they start losing interest or things don't go the way they want and here lies the problem many owners want to see immidiate results and if that doesen't happen they back out and leave the club in debt.

Pretty much there own fault if you ask me and to be honest barca diden't deserve anything better. If you look at there piss poor transfer business from the last few years like For example coutinho his transfer from liverpool to barcelona is still the third most expensive transfer ever, Griezmann transfer to barca is the 5th highest, coutinho they dumped out of the door for next to nothing same thing will happen to Griezmann. Also while i'm taking a dumb at barcelona how can we forget Ousmane Dembélé 8th highest transfer fee paid, fat change he walks out for free if barca fails to agree on a new contract.

Yowzers, Every gamer owe it to themselves to experience the original mass effect trilogy atleast once. It's just the first game controls haven't really aged well by todays standard but they fixed some of it with the trilogy remaster atleast from what i can remember.
You think so? Don't really see anything wrong with skyrim it's gameplay well maybe the ps3/360 or switch version, may be dated but with the recent update for current gen consoles it looks and plays better then ever.
Justin11 reacted to kingpotato in Your opinion about beauty pageants
If you have to explain a joke then its no longer funny but here I go I guess... @Clasher
Its very obvius actually, in english the word Date stands for calendar day or Date as in Dating or going out with a person in a romantic as in relationships, like going to the movies, going out fot dinner, going to the beach etc.
The question that William Shatner was asking (the old fat dude in the picture) was, "Describe the perfect date" as in going out to dinner or movies etc , and what she would expect from her male companion, if he was a gentleman or if he was funny etc
But the girl misunderstood the question thinking he was asking about the weather of a calendar date...
Justin11 reacted to Kane99 in Top 10 Hated Video Game Companies Fans Used To Love
That's is true, there are still people who will gladly purchase their maddens or battlefield games. But they also own a ton of indie studios and games.
To be fair, they have gotten better when it comes to their indie titles. And for the most part, they seem to let there indie crews do their own thing.
But their AAA titles are lacking these days and needs a fixing as soon as possible. Recent battlefield was a failure and I think fans are starting to drop out of that franchise because of the neglect.
Justin11 reacted to Crazycrab in Is there a platform you hate?
Well neither of these controllers weigh even close to that much, maybe 200 - 300g. More to the point the I have to agree with @Yaramaki, the PS3 Sixaxis controller felt flimsy and cheap. The PS3 was originally going to launch with this monstrosity:
But this "Boomerang" design was unsurprisingly panned by journalists who got their hands on demo models. In response Sony, no doubt pressed for time, just took their 10 year old DualShock design, hap-hazardly added motion controls because Wii and made out of plastic so thin it was transparent!
Sony did eventually improve on the design with the DualShock 4 then later DualSense but even a PlayStation fan I have to admit the Xbox controllers were better... Unless your talking about the Duke 🤮:
Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in What's the most controversial Balloon D'or award in football?
I should start posting more into this section of the forum as there some interesting threads in here. Like i won't deny Messi and Ronaldo are arguably the best players of all time, well surely of their generarion. See this is a discussion that Is always up for debate but you can't compare football when pele or maradonna were around to current day football as like with any sport football has professionalised a lot during the course of 30 years.
What is controversial Fabio Cannavaro winning it in 2006 as the first defender? The fact Zidane only won it once, or even better Legends of the game like Jürgen Klinsmann, Raúl, Thierry Henry, Paolo Maldini and Gianluigi Buffon never won it once that is controversial imo.
For all i care imo if in 2022 Benzema doesen't win it, why not give it to Thibaut Courtois, sure i may be pro Belgium again but come on man imo he deserves it as much Benzema does.
Justin11 reacted to Techno in Xbox Studio Growth
So I've found something that puts into perspective on how drastic Xbox's first party studio growth has been.
The above image is the studio list in 2023 if the purchase of activision goes though. That would be 35-36 studios depending on if Blizzard acquires another studio called Proletariat.
The below image is the studio list in 2017. There's only 6 in that picture.
What are your thoughts on this?

Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in Good games with bad gameplay
So what are some games you enjoyed that are generally be seen as good by gamers but quite frankly have terrible or clunky gameplay. I'll start with the first two that came to my mind when i tought about creating a topic for it. Offcourse i should include Deadly premonition but i've already talked way too much about that game in previous topics i'll just mention it briefly.
Heavy Rain -> Great game, great story likeable characters but when i think back off it the controls are quite terrible and the gameplay is as boring as going to church on sunday. Bad example i know like who on earth still does that 😞
Mass Effect 1 -> the entire trilogy are classics imo but the first game hasn't aged very well, while everithing else about the game is still top notch the controls are just clunky and a pain to use by todays standards. Driving around the Moka is probably the biggest pain in the ass, well i'm sure you know what i mean if you played the original game. I think they finally fixed it with the trilogy.
Right surely i know more like alpha protocol and the first nier game just to name a few but i can't remember much about those games anymore so i'll leave some for the rest of you guys/gals as i'm kinda curious what you can come up with!
Justin11 reacted to Empire in VR may help some people with mobility challenges
Depending on the type of disability, this info may help somebody some day:
VoiceAttack is less than $10 on Steam, and can be setup to convert voice commands into key-presses or joystick button presses. I'm not sure about VR hand controller buttons (yet), but many VR games also accept keybinds for some commands. Flight sims, etc.
Message me if you need help with it. Disclaimer: I'm not an expert, but I know where they can be found!
Justin11 got a reaction from Family sedan in WRC 9
Most games aren't that popular via local stores. At times the store keepers feels that the game wouldn't push for sales and they might record loss, cos they'll hold it long time without much sales. They always rely upon the popular games, since those games got popularity, they can easily sell them off, and make profit. That's just a few points of mine.
You can search the game online, their are several options of online stores you can order from even in your locality and get it delivered to you within few days or even hours.
Justin11 got a reaction from The Blackangel in Most Expensive Consoles Ever
That's bullshit just as you mentioned it, I can't spend additional 500$ when the initial price is '$500. I don't plug money, I don't see that as a wise investment. Assumed they didn't put such condition it could've attracted many people coming to buy PS5 and Xbox series X from them. At this time, I just have to wait and see how it goes in the future, if the scarcity issue gonna end, so we don't face this kind of condition to get a brand new PS5 or Xbox series X.
Justin11 reacted to The Blackangel in Most Expensive Consoles Ever
There were a couple games that were beautiful graphically. But they are few and far between. The only game I was able to find that was actually fun to play with the motion control was Mario Kart. The wheel accessory that you could put your controller into made it easier, but it was so fun to steer with a wheel instead of using a D-pad to drive, or in the case of the N64, a joystick.
That may be true in most cases, but the old stuff still sells really well. There are a lot of us who prefer older games. I know I do. As for the price, the PS5 is definitely more expensive at the moment. Retail is $400 for the digital version, and $500 for the disc version. At least here it is. But you're going to be hard pressed to find one on the shelves. There's a place called Vintage Stock here that had both a PS5 and Xbox Series X on their shelves at the same time recently. But to buy one you had to buy both a brand new controller and 2 games. Which put the price close to $1,000. They wouldn't sell just the system. That's just bullshit if you ask me.
Justin11 reacted to Withywarlock in The first NFT game console has been announced
I won't quote the article ver batim (though I strongly recommend people read it fully rather than just what myself and others quote), but here's some interesting tidbits that stand out to me:
So what is Web 3? Because right now "Metaverse" and "Crypto" are buzzwords used by people who want to impress investors, not actually move the World Wide Web forward like what came with Web 2.0. You can't just say "who doesn't understand Web 3" and then proceed to not explain what it is, which right now the Wikipedia page only confirms my suspicions.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but does this therefore mean there's only going to be 10,000 of these things sold? If so this leads me to the next bit,
How are you going to cover the costs if only 10,000 people are paying for these passes? Games consoles are sold at a loss: the games and accessories themselves make up for the losses. What "games built on different blockchains" are going to make up the cost of hardware that can run games at 8K HDR, 120 FPS, ray tracing whilst being accessed by a fingerprint scanner?
Regarding the logo they say this much:
OK, I guess...? You couldn't just change the logo anyway, just to be sure? Your brand isn't going to hit store shelves or wherever for another two years, you've got plenty of time to change it.
Four guys and a 3D Printer, essentially. That's a romcom waiting to happen.
...you didn't speak to developers before you decided to make your console?
Jesus wept on an 30p NFT.
Justin11 reacted to StaceyPowers in Silly completionist things you did as a gaming newbie
When you were new to gaming (or a particular type of game), were there any silly, weird things you did as a completionist because you just didn’t know any better?
For instance, when I first started playing open world RPGs, I tried to loot everything. Every single item.
Justin11 reacted to Empire in What in the world happened to Boris Johnson in UK?
It's fairly extraordinary, but not exactly unprecedented. The odd thing here is how long he has hung in for in spite of the writing being on the wall for him for at least the last year.
British Prime Ministers are frequently forced from office before the end of their term. Thatcher, Cameron and May all left under similar circumstances. Blair essentially retired part way through his last term.
And that's just in the last 30 years or so. In fact, leaving office in a general election is the exception rather than the norm.
Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in What games are the hardest to learn/get into as a newbie?
Suprised nobody mentioned the traditional shooter or shmup yet games ala gradius, r-type, darius and salamander just to name a few. Easy enough to get into but damn tough as nails to master since for shmup purist t's usually the goal to beat the game on one credit. Then there is the bullet hell shooter games ala radiant silvergun, radirgy, deathsmiles, dodonpachi and it's numerous releases, sometimes when i play these games i don't have a clue what is going on sometimes lol.
I think for me personally it's going to be the real time and/or turn based strategy genre, i'm trying to get back into them but even games like civilization vi feel a little overwhelming for me, even when i finished the tutorial and started playing the game i already forgot half what i learned in said tutorial well maybe i shoulden't have taken a 2 week break from gaming. But i'm going to be stubborn and maybe go trough the tutorial again. Guess i'm more the management type of guy where i don't have to take battles in account and can just focus managing something.
If we are taking online play in account it has to be the one on one fighters, the problem here is when you jump into a certain fighting game of let's say mortal kombat 11 or even better a more niche game from arc system works. The community that is now left from that game are just people who play nothing besides fighters and are usually experts at it, so for somebody new it would be very hard to get into as you would get destroyed no matter what, well unless you put hours and hours into it to get good at the game.
on a final note since it's been mentioned in this thread, rockstar their games are designed that they can be beaten by anybody, if you fail a mission too many times you can just skip that part if you'd like and continue. It's just a lot of side activities like the sky diving in gta v that are a pain in the ass to complete. Also worth noting the frustrating controls at times like driving and shooting combined without crashing into something yeah not that easy. Shooting from a horse in rdr 2 is a lot easier then shooting from a car that goes over 100mph.

After been off video games for a couple of days, I finally got some time to play this weekend and it's even an holiday weekend over here.
I have got a hand full of games I would be playing for the next two days and I am looking forward to having a wonderful time here ,just me and my consoles all weekend.
Justin11 got a reaction from Reality vs Adventure in Without stating your age
I got you better, it is the fact you lived in a setting where it isn't possible to play rain ball. It wouldn't be possible to play on a flood surface, it is easy to play in an environment where water flows out, so it wouldn't be stagnated. To be frank, rain ball was fun during my childhood, we did funny stuffs with the ball.
Justin11 reacted to Shagger in What in the world happened to Boris Johnson in UK?
I second this @Justin11. It's OK that you don't have a full scope of the situation with regard to the resignation of the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It is even OK to not really care either, but if wish to contribute to conversation at hand, actually have something to say. For the second time in about 12 hours, I'm telling you if you have nothing to say, say nothing! If you insist on contributing to the conversation, do a little research to develop at at least some understanding of what's going so you can formulate an opinion and then, and I mean ONLY then, express it. If putting that bare minimum effort of is not worth it to you, then why would a post where you couldn't be bothered to make that bare minimum of effort be worth it to us?
And frankly @Reality vs Adventure, I could say the same thing to you. Especially as the author of the thread, I would expect a lot better than this. No article, not so much as a basic description of what happened nor even a detailed opinion. Sadly, I've come to expect such a half-arsed effort from @Justin11, but this is really disappointing coming from you. @Crazycrab has already done your job for you and went through the basics about what happened and his effort is only reason I'm keeping this thread open. I may have deleted the thread entirely if it wasn't for him.
I'll add here an article from what something I would consider a neutral news source to provide some more details. From Sky News
My two cents? It was time for him to go. There had been two many missteps with things like party-gate, controversial policies set forth by his administration and what I would describe at best as a slow response to the cost of living crisis. He was not the PM and his was not the government we needed anymore. I don't have anything against the guy, but I don't think history is going to regard him that fondly.
Justin11 got a reaction from Withywarlock in Favorite Studio
None, I stay with the ones making beautiful games. Even if Milestone SRL makes beautiful racing games for me, I'm not going to choose them ahead of others, because others are trying too to make good games. I play lots of racing games not just from 'mileston, but from 'Polyphony Digital, 'Codemasters studios etc.
