    Justin11 reacted to Withywarlock in Would you take up video Gaming as a professional job?   
    I've been a professional as a games journalist, but it comes with a lot of risk of burnout (here's one of my earliest and best write-ups on this forum on the subject). To stream for a living, no, I couldn't do it. I lack the wit, charisma and energy to pull off the amount of hours of smiling and joking required to keep people's attention for money. To test games, I'd have to be paid considerably more than the going rate to put up with some of the horror stories QA tells about the developers they work with.
    I might well give them a go one day, but I'm a mundane person who prefers mundane work. Then again even spinning and crouching on every conceivable pixel is a bit too boring for me.

    Exactly, those first time buyers encounter issues if the game is faulty, that's why I'm always aside from purchasing video games during their first time releases.

    Do you need foot rest for you to call it a pleasing chair for gaming? I think you can buy one in the market even if it doesn't come with the foot rest. I just love the design of the chair nothing much.

    Justin11 reacted to Shagger in How much have you spent so far playing Fortnite?   
    @Justin11 and @kingpotato
    First off, chill.
    I don't play and have never played Fortnite, but all the research I have gathered has guided me to believe that Fortnite is NOT pay-to-win. There are skins just due to the colour palate bend into certain environments and backgrounds better than others, a few examples in this video here;
    There is also some belief among players that some skins have an effect on the players hitbox and thus can possibly pose an advantage depending on the skin. However, there is is no way to boost stats, buy better weapons, upgrade equipment, buy better spawns or buy into a match after it has started or anything that deliberately and fundamentally affects gameplay that can be bought. As far as I can tell, it's all cosmetic stuff such as skins for gliders, vehicles, weapons and the player's avatar itself as well as expressive cosmetics such as emotes. Every player on Fortnite has the same stats regardless of the amount of hours they have played. 
    Just because a game has encouraged a large amount of spending on in-game purchases, does not make it pay-to-win. Pay-to-win is when you can spend money to gain a tactical and/or practical advantage over a player with a similar level of experience who doesn't pay. Fortnite does not do that. A more experienced and better practiced player will naturally have an advantage over a rookie like anything else, but you can't pay for any form of gameplay advantage. I started typing this out before you actually made these two replies and what I was going to ask you to do @Justin11 is explain why you consider Fortnite a pay-to-win experience. Having seen these two replies, I'm honestly sill a little unsure as to why you believe this to be the case. So, other than the debateable skins that might serve as camouflage or may affect hit boxes, is there anything else that you believe can be bought that offers an advantage? Is so, what item or items offer an advantage and in what way do they offer an advantage?

    THOSE ARE COSMETICS!!!!! Skins, emotes, outfits and some Battle pass items, THOSE ARE ALL COSMETICS!!! You dont need cosmetics to do battlepass quests, hell you dont even need to buy the battle pasts to do the battlepass missions You dont need cosmetics to upgrade your weapons, YOU DONT NEED COSMETICS TO WIN!!!

    How in the world is paying for a skin pay to win ?? Do you even understand what pay to win is ??? Buying a cosmetic item is not going to make you win.

    Justin11 reacted to The Blackangel in Ever get bored with your controller?   
    That's bullshit. Especially to those of us who have no family other than their pets. If they're just an animal, then so are you. We're nothing more the bipedal primates. We're just mammals. We're all part of the genus "Homo". We're not Homo Erectus. We're not Homo Habilus. We're Homo Sapien.  You're nothing but an animal. I'm nothing but an animal. @DC is nothing but an animal. This entire forum is full of beings that are nothing but animals. The only difference is: not a god damn thing. You may think you're superior to other animals, but in truth you're not. Homo Sapien is one of the lowest life forms. We have greater technology, but due to our own corruption, we're not much better than whatever is on the bottom.
    So don't ever say that they're "just an animal". That makes you come of as calling them disposable.
    "Oh it's dead? I guess I'll just get another one, and toss this one in a dumpster on the way."
    That is how animal abusers think.

    Justin11 reacted to Shagger in What are some older games that still don’t feel dated to you?   
    This reply is directly at @Justin11, but I want anyone who sees this to read it and read it carefully.
    Here's the thing @Justin11. You don't bother to take the time to adequately read a post then without thinking it through you make a reply. The reply is clearly made with inadequate understanding of the post you are replying to and/or a lack of understanding of the facts and the subject matter of the thread itself. Then you say "my bad" and apologise. Then comes the part that genuinely pisses me off, you never learn form this when it happens and sooner or later you do exact same thing again. Why does this keep happening? Why is it despite making this mistake time after time, you keep doing it? Well, I'll tell you why, it's because you don't care. You don't care to put in the effort it takes to avoid making this mistake again, because reading and replying to posts with consistent accuracy on a forum does take effort. It takes reading a post carefully and making sure you understand it (Especially important if English isn't your first language.) then taking just as much care to crafting a reply that is worth making. But for you, getting this wrong is inevitable no matter how many times you "apologize" for it
    And cherry on top of this shit cake is that in this thread, you are STILL getting it wrong! There's not one point in this entire thread @The Blackangel even mentioned the SNES or The Switch. Look again at her first post;
    She even said in that post that that was only a potion of her NES games, another thing that needed repeated for your sake because you clearly didn't read it properly.
    We know you're not doing this maliciously, but there has to come a point where you're not doing it by accident either. People who post on this forum, moderator or not, at the very least deserve to have people who read thier posts actually read them and understand them, especially if the one reading the post intends to reply. I really should not have to explain this to anyone because it's basic forum etiquette as well as common sense. It is so frustrating dealing with someone not understanding and replying to your clearly written, easy to understand posts because they can't be bothered to take the time to read them properly. I'd even call it infuriating. It would actually be better to ignore other people's posts completely than keep doing this.
    Now, I really don't know where to go with you and the others who consistently do this sort of thing. Another thing I feel like I've said a million times, we understand that English is not the first language for a lot of our members, and if people do struggle with English we are here to help anyone needs help, but it's also true that it's each members responsibility to take the time they need to both read and write posts accurately. However, I tend to find that in most of these instances people tend to leave little time between posts, suggesting they are doing this in a rush.
    If you keep doing this, we will have to take more affirmative action. We don't want your apologies @Justin11, we want to to learn from these instances.

    It's not only Skins that are important in Fortnite. There are other tools or even weapons as some would call them. They are quite very important in the course of playing the game. Take for instance, the Leviathan Axe. It's one powerful tool.

    Justin11 reacted to Clasher in Persona 5 Royal   
    Persona 5 Royal is actually my favourite game in the persona series since the release of  Persona 5 in the series in 2016 , available on PS4 and PS3 consoles.
    Persona 5 Royal released in 2019 but made available worldwide around March of 2020 developed by Atlus and P studios it was actually nominated for The Game Award For The Best Role Playing Game.
    Various new contents were added in the Persona 5 Royal that weren't on Persona 5 with an added extra semester at the end of the game comes with it's own story segment and palace, this was a huge success and my particular favorite during the heat of the pandemic.
    what are your takes on this game if you have played it?

    Justin11 reacted to Reality vs Adventure in Do you think games are too expensive nowadays?   
    Installments I meant was buying a new game, then spending more money on DLC or another edition a year later. So what seems like installments is actually spending MORE money on the same game in two different purchases a year apart. So it seems cheaper when the amount of money you spend is split in two payments instead of all at once. There aren't any cheaper installments. I don't want to buy a $90 game. But $60 now and $30 later for DLC just feels cheaper. Best thing to do is let the game age a couple years and buy the gold edition for $25 or so. But when it's your favorite game, of course we will buy it new, and get caught up spending more on the game a year later.

    You actually can play any console game on-the-go. While they’re made by third party manufacturers, there are portable NES, SNES, and even N64 gaming systems. I’ve tried the SNES, as it’s more affordable than the others (not to mention easier to find) and they work quite well. But mine disappeared long ago, so I haven’t used it in more than 10 years.
