  1. I’m on the fence about this. It looks like a really amazing product, but my budget is tight. Did anyone purchase one? Would love to hear some opinions here before jumping on the discount.
  2. PureVPN is a solid service. I’ve used it in the past, but let my subscription lapse. I’d have missed this if you hadn’t shared it. So thanks! Time to re-up again.

    Female here, cool to see that the forums aren't dominated by males.
  4. I was referred here by DC.
  5. Hi everyone, I'm fantanoice (fanta-no-ice). I'm a game developer, streamer and collector. I'm a big fan of Nintendo but have been branching out to Sony and PC games lately as well. Hope to see you around the forums!
  6. Ask me questions about life and the universe.
  7. Stein's Gate had some moments that got me riled up. NSFW/trigger warning. Also spoiler warning because they're narrative related.
  8. So I pulled my Vita out of storage the other day and noticed a port on the top of it. I didn't know what it was for, so I did some Googling. Turns out it was an "Accessories" port what is not found on the later PS Vita 2000 models. It seems as though it was originally meant to be a TV-out port, which meant the console could have been a PS Vita TV all on its own. What are your thoughts on this? I think a TV-out feature would have been a valuable feature for streamers and normal users. They could have even won over people who wanted portable and home gaming, like what Nintendo has done with the Switch. Unfortunately that they dropped the idea in favour of the expensive PS Vita TV that nobody bought for obvious reasons and imo missed out on a large market share that Nintendo now have.
  9. Nobody has mentioned anything from The World Ends With You? Oh my goodness. I, your forum goddess Fanta will bless your ears with the heavenly sounds of TWEWY. The game is getting ported to Switch later this year so do yourself a favour and pick it up. Or grab the existing game on DS / iOS / Android.
  10. I sunk so many hours in Sims 2, you have no idea. Jumping from Sims 1 to 2 was a huge step up in quality and polish. You could have kids that inherited your genes! And they grew up! I plan to one day stream the 10 Generation Challenge just to see if I can get it done. I played Sims 3 and it was good, but missed the fun that 2 had. I liked being able to visit my neighbours finally but hated how they all grew up with you. Like, no, I am the word of God, I will say when these children become adults. Another high contender is Portal. When I first played it, the I found the portal/wormhole mechanic to be some kind of ascended mechanic; it was beyond anything I would have ever thought of at the time. Plus the writing was so witty and well timed. Nothing feels out of place. It's like a perfect box of game.
  11. The only one I've played is Black Ops 1 so I'll put my vote on that. When I played it, I was impressed at how it seamlessly switched from one mechanic to another. I thought it worked really with the 'thrill of war' theme, because you were always on your toes, trying something new. Afaik, this was the only game in the series that did that.
  12. My dream job is to open my own game studio so it that's the one I would pick. If I took over another company I'd have to deal with their IP, culture and whatever else comes with taking over a company. That or I'd take over Microsoft so I could get MS bucks and tell them to let Rare make good games again (albeit I haven't played Sea of Thieves so I can't comment on that).
  13. I've been pretty jaded with the game industry since Gamergate. After what happened to those Guild Wars 2 employees it sounds like not much has improved. I don't purchase many AAA games any more outside of Nintendo because I find so many of them are worse versions of games from 10-20yrs ago with some flashier tech. I try to look to the indie space now to see what cool mechanics are coming out from them. I also found that nowadays, a lot of videogames seem like work. There's so many little things to do in them. A bunch of action titles require your reflexes to be on point when you play them as well. Coming home from a long day of work, they sometimes feel like more work, so I'd rather chill with a dumb TV show.
  14. They already said they want a laptop. You may be able to get an Asus Ultrabook for around that. They do alright in my experience. However if you want something as beefy as a PC you're looking at $2000-3000. 😕
