    Justin11 reacted to Withywarlock in What year would you consider as the worst in video game's history?   
    Hardware scarcity is certainly a big deal but not specific to a single year and it didn't originate with Covid-19 (for PC users I'd daresay it was cryptocurrency mining that caused shortages.) Gaming in the UK boomed as a direct result of Covid, or more specifically, lockdown efforts. I imagine this was the same in a lot of other countries in the world. Lots of studios and their developers faced difficulties, absolutely, but I still don't think that qualifies as a worse year than the industry dying.
    There is certainly discussion to be had about Covid-19's impact on gaming, and I'm sure there's many interesting comparisons between the struggles now versus ~40 years ago.

    I never really existed when the worst came around video game industry. The only season I witnessed is the ongoing covid 19 era, that has caused hardware scarcity especially with PS5.

    Justin11 reacted to Crazycrab in Sony announces more TV shows from PlayStation IP's. Including Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War.   
    They made two announcements with 2 separate titles, neither of which seemed to fit in with the timeline of Horizon (I posted the details earlier).  From what I understand it's not two separate shows but I could be wrong.

    That's good news, at least the speculation about it's released date is now settled. Let's now expect to see the game up and running by November, 9th. I know you @Heatman is ecstatic about the announcement of the game.

    Justin11 reacted to harleyqbx in Which mobile games drains your smartphone battery faster?   
    It depends on how you game on your phone. If you're right near a charger, no problem. If you commute to work on public transportation, or you're on a long drive as a passenger, you don't have a steady power supply and don't want your phone to die in an hour. It's a problem then.  
    The only time I've kind of had that problem, where my phone battery comes close to draining faster than it can charge, is when I use my phone as a webcam for video meeting for work. Epoccam is the only non-gaming app that's that intense, but it's also a great app, imo. So, I'll deal with it.

    @kingpotato is right.
    That's the kind of post you make on a thread as your first reply. How could you possibly not know you had posted on this thread before? You have, in fact, replied to this thread on no less than 20 other occasions. Nobody who posts like they care would forget that. This is ridiculous, @Justin11. And don't reply to this or @kingpotato's post please, I think you've harvested quite enough posts out of this thread as it is.

    Justin11 reacted to Shagger in Celebrating 150,000 Posts at VGR Forum   
    I just ran the same math for myself. I joined 950 days ago (November 28, 2019) and this here will be my 2,612th post. So that's average of 2.75 posts a day. I have had a little time off from the forum here and there and my moderating duties and updating the Game Services Threads do rob me of quite a bit of time I could spend making posts, but even so that is pretty alarming. To do 30 posts a day, I would have to try to hit that number, and I mean really try. That's not my style. I post if and when I feel I have something worthwhile to say. Whether it be something informative, in debate, advisory, funny or whatever, I could easily read about 30+ posts from others and not make a single post myself, that's just how I enjoy spending my time here. I get a lot out of this place, possibly more than I give back, and cannot imagine feeling that way whilst making 30 posts a day. Everything I say would be drowned out and bleed together and probably even forget most of it. I just couldn't do that, at least not a smaller forum like this.

    No problem, I've agreed, but at least you've acknowledged the little similarities in them. I spotted the difference, but it isn't noticeable unless you go closer to the both controllers.

    That's cool to hear from you about WRC 8, and your interest in WRC 9. I'll check them up via YouTube and see what their gameplay looks like. If it makes sense to me, already I'm a racing game addict, then I'll go for them.

    I love WRC 8 so much that now I'm considering getting WRC 9.  I know 10 is out, but I've heard that it's not a big enough step forward in quality and it may actually even be worse than 9.  I've also heard that WRC 9 has better handling and more historic rally cars than 8.  I'm all psyched up to get 9 and then I'll probably play them inter-changably.

    This reminds me of playing against of the best managers in Top Eleven Football Manager called Apolo Rock. He's so good that he owns a YouTube channel where he teaches others how to train their players and be as good in the game. He's a beast of a manager.

    Justin11 got a reaction from Crazycrab in Why does Africa have no AAA game studio?   
    What @Crazycrab have said around African continent is the fucking truth. Africa is kinda large continent, but they've failed to capture the eyes of the video game companies establishing branch in various countries in Africa. I believe it is matter of time and Africa will become an attractive option for video game environment.

    Justin11 reacted to Crazycrab in Why does Africa have no AAA game studio?   
    I think one thing that people oddly don't seem to take into account is that Africa is a big fucking place!  It's a massive continent that's got significant geographical, economic and political diversity.  Most of us ignorent European's and American's are aware of that there is a clear difference between France and Germany but seem to assume little to no difference between Uganda and Kenya despite that geographically they sit pretty similar.
    I'm a subject of this ignorance to but I am able to observe the attitude thay many people observe that the problems that affect "Africa" apply to the whole continent rather than individual countries and regions.  South Africa is a very well developed region that actually DOES have some game studios like Clockwork Acorn, and there are others that starve in poverty.
    If we want to address problems in "Africa", I think the first thing we need to do is address them as problems in Uganda, Rawanda, Angola, Zimbabwe, Somalia........

    Minecraft is a good option, but I've been kinda played out on it over the past few years. 
    Well I'm thinking more towards PC. I don't think Animal Crossing has a PC port. But I will keep Stardew Valley in mind. I don't think it has multiplayer options though. But the guy who made the game I guess is making a similar game with multiplayer. 
    Thanks for the suggestion. I have played rocket league with my nephew before, so I'll add it to the list of games we can now play together on PC.

    Justin11 reacted to The Blackangel in Who do you most like spending time with and why?   
    Love is more often shown from women than men. Men are afraid of being seen as "soft" or "weak" so they hide their emotions. Women on the other hand are more open with their feelings. We can say "I love you" to other women who are just friends and not a romantic interest. Men sure as hell don't do that unless tehy want to hear their friends calling them "fags" or something like that.
    As for who I like spending time with, for me it's the animals here. @Rain Dew is the only human I spend time with, but if we didn't have the dogs, rats, and my bird, I wouldn't be able to function.

    The American dollar gets less and less valuable over time. Ten years ago I could buy a soda from a vending machine for a quarter. Now they're all at least $2.50 for a simple soda. That's literally 10 times higher. 30 years ago I could buy sodas in glass longneck bottles for a dime. But in these last 20 years the internet has become king the world over. When I was a kid, the internet didn't even exist. Computers obviously existed, but "internet" wasn't a word in the English language.
