If that's what he meant then I do agree w/that, their tech is always outdated. Switch has tons of 3rd party support. It's getting SKYRAM man. I'm sure tens of people will buy that. TENS.


Latest news is if you really read the statements from Bethesda, they have made zero mention of it being the Special edition or having DLC or recent texture updates(which the PC had anyway from the beginning as an optional download), so there is speculation that is a port of PS3/360 Skyrim, rather than a toned down PS4/One port(which had the better textures). And the people at Bethesda aren't coming out to disagree or respond. So that's a fail.

So... How much card money does that 46 game for $1 bundle from Bundlestars get you?

$0.03 a card, say 5 cards a game, $0.15 a game... $6.90.

 

So if you made 45 farming accounts, you could turn $45 into $310 gabenbucks.

 

WAY better turnaround than $45 for G$50.

Nintendo has had shitty hardware for a while, since the Wii. They use outdated technology and people deal with it because they want their mario/zelda fix. I think that's what FissFiss was trying to say. Hopefully the Switch gets good third party support like Nintendo's handhelds get, otherwise I can't see the Switch going far.

In 2 years...

You'd have to spend an additional $225 before those farming accounts can actually farm.

I'll give you that, but, the gimmick on the N64 was 3D more than graphical advancements and Gamecube wasn't without the minidisc thing because Nintendo didn't want to be like everyone else and use regular CDs.  Plus, Gamecube started all the peripheral craze.  I remember buying Donkey Kong bongos and Samba De Amigo cha cha shaker things.  

 

The mini disc that the GameCube used was smaller in capacity than what the two other competitor's used...  While the third competitor's system, the Sega Dreamcast, was all but dead or even officially dead when the GameCube arrived on scene.  It wasn't even close with a size of 1.5 GB versus 4.7 GB.  PS2 and Xbox both used DVD  (Which meant for the second generation in a row that third party developers had a hell of a time developing for the system if they wanted to release multi platform games and 3rd party developers got use to not being on Nintendo systems, something that continues to this day.)

 

As for peripherals...  I would have to disagree and say the peripheral craze started with the NES.  Rob (the stupid robot thing), Power Pad, zapper (lightgun), and licensed peripherals like the Power Glove all established Nintendo's craze to me. :)

 

As for Nintendo in general...  Until they release proper Metroid games  (I would prefer 2D) than I cannot be bothered by them.  3D Zelda isn't really my thing.

What Master Spoder said.

I saw DF's Zelda video and well... it was unexpected to see that docked version ran worse than portable mode. It's clearly intended that Nintendo wanted customers to play mostly in portable mode. I'm afraid it will become a new trend for future games on Switch.

Putting aside the entry fee barrier that Detruire pointed out, farming on 45 (or more) alt accounts strikes me as a huge pain in the ass. Even if you don't have to contend with the 2 hour card drop delay on those accounts, and are able to utilize the card drop glitch to speed up the process, you're still looking at several hours of idling on each account. Not to mention the hassle of having to log in and out of all those accounts. Seriously, I don't know how card farmers do it.

I believe many use https://github.com/J.../ArchiSteamFarm (I don't tho)

 

one command to mass add keys, then auto-idle & auto send items after it's done.

I'm assuming most of the bros are just embarrassed, but last night we played Six Siege and got whooped all night, even with some "good" players.  FissFiss was distracted with things in his mouth and I think that's why we got beat so easily.  I didn't get to play until the last two rounds, and Syntax was banned completely again so he went to play BF1 with Weiler after Weiler rage quit.  Then Bah rage quite and we switched to BF1 where MysterD made another appearance we won most of the matches and remained surprisingly competitive in the others.

Sweet. I can just stick to my PC Skyrim: Legendary + Special Editions...

...Which is probably what I was going to do, anyways.

It was funny b/c I quit out of BF1 for a bit b/c I got tired, I fell asleep in front of the computer (not like that's anything new for me, TBH), and forgot to sign-out of Origin. Then I got a Direct Message on Origin that woke me up + got me back into the BF1 grind for a little bit! 

 

I probably should've got more coffee or something w/ caffeine, but I was tired - and after a few games of Conquest, I threw in the towel and went to bed.

 

I'm really digging that BF1 MP, to say the least.

Yeah, BF1 MP is one of my favorites ever just due to the fact I can feel like I do something even if my kill count is low or I just dick around. It can get a little frustrating sometimes, but not like COD MP.  The games are long though, but doesn't feel that way TBH.

I have been outright highest score player in BF4 matches while having literally a few kills(on team based modes like Conquest), why I've always preferred it over COD style games.

Agreed.

 

Even if you are losing, the out-right chaos of Conquest w/ so much happening on-screen is just pure bliss on the battlefield. All kinds of different sorts of action everywhere.

 

CoD feels more typical FPS stuff, as there really aren't vehicles or anything else running or flying all over the map. BF1 is the opposite in Conquest - w/ tanks, jeeps, and even Zeppelins here.

 

Probably also helps that in BF1, even in standard TDM, maps + player counts are just flat-out bigger + better than CoD.

I think they've gotten wise and keep the price tied to US pricing for their higher tier franchises.

Definitely. In bf4 I even had a match where I was top player without a single kill. I wasnt trying to do it on purpose at first, but once I realized that I was doing it it had to be done. Most of the rounds when Im top player I end up with a real shitty k/d but playing medic and reviving everyone counts for way more.

 

Its always hard to get across to people that kills and k/d dont matter in bf games, its all about team support and PTFO

DESYNC is the first game I've ever refunded due to just not caring very much for it. The other two were due to getting them bundled or cheaper within the next fourteen days. Disappointed as I'd been following the game for a long time
