With Switch sales recently hitting 55.7 million, I'd put this attempt to downplay how popular the Switch clearly was when it launched right up there for worst videogame take of the past five years. The WiiU sold 3.06m in 44 days in November/December 2012, while the Switch sold 2.74m in 29 days in March 2017. So the Switch didn't sell less than the WiiU in their first month because, to point out a true fact, 44 days is not a month.

Great call from Wombat, who is surely going to be headhunted by DC Films any day now. Joker would have been much better if they had a young guy like Cole Sprouse in the lead role.

I loved the part at 3:55 where Cheapy asked a question, Wombat answered it, and then Cheapy said “you don’t have to explain it to me”.

I like table tennis enough to play it at my local JCC and to have come 2nd in my office's tournament last summer, but Cheapy needs to chill out with the ping pong pimping a little bit.

When the Joker said “I’m only burning my half”, that was a joke.

I don't play games on my phone, either. I drive 10 minutes to work, and when I'm at home there's always something better to do than play a phone game.

That incisive critique of Devil May Cry 5 and Japanese games development brought to you by the same experts who predicted that the Switch would be a failure because that silly old Japanese company Nintendo couldn’t possibly know or understand what Western gamers wanted.

Tai’s probably too young to be interested in watching Terrace House on Netflix, but maybe in a few years it would be a good Japanese language show for him to get into.

Bungie said at E3 that Destiny 2 will be 30 fps on all consoles.


If you want 60 fps get it on PC.

I believe they meant they want something new in Mario Kart.  They weren't directly comparing Forza and Mario Kart I don't think, just saying if they added a free roam mode like Forza that would be welcome.

Cheapy directly compared them on twitter.

He just can't accept that reviewers like the content in MK8 more than he does, and more than the content in FH3.

I recommend killing all the regular enemies you can in your first playthru of Dishonored 2. It makes exploring the areas and finding runes & bonecharms much less frustrating, especially if you buy the ability that turns dead enemies to ash.

I had to pause ny jog to laugh when Cheapy claimed the Xbone S compared favorably on price with the PS4 Pro and Shipwreck said the Scorpio is is much more powerful than it. That is some crazy spin based on the actual facts.

A 1 TB Xbone S is $350, and 1.4 teraflops.

The 1 TB PS4 Pro will be $400, but is 4.2 teraflops.

The Scorpio is supposed to be 6 teraflops, which isn't nearly as big a jump in power as the jump from the Xbone S to the PS4 Pro. But somehow Cheapy thinks MS could charge a $100 or even $200 premium.

Wait, what in hell is Shipwreck doing criticizing Wombat's movie viewing habits? Any asshole who willingly spent money on Pixels officially forfeits the right to ever call out another person's movie tastes.


It was pretty funny hearing Shipwreck claim there was any worth in that flaming pile of shit.
