Is George Roper the most insufferable, self-satisfied bore on this site?

Hmmm..., yes, I would say he probably is

Rockstar explains GTA Online cash stimulus delay

TeflonDan

If you play GTA online trying to rank up as fast as you can and collecting all the best cars/weapons/upgrades then I can understand people being angry at losing their progress.

Playing it with friends just fannying about and not taking it seriously, I've found it my most fun online experience since Burnout Paradise.



P.S. to the PC Master Race - if you seriously think the character movement is 'clunky' because of sub-optimal frame rates, have you ever played a GTA game on your PC?

Haptic pads and touchscreens, I'd be very surprised if they can price this at less than 50-60, and for that reason, ah'm oot

Regarding the Scottish in-jokes, wasn't there a Bawsaq stock ticker in GTA4?

As a sweaty sock myself I've always enjoyed these,

Even in GTA 1 there was an area of the map called Ardler consisting of hi-rise buildings where you usually got mugged in the underpass -

Ardler was a notoriously rough area of Dundee in the 1980's (where DMA Design were based at the time) consisting of 5 multi-storey blocks of flats, Dundee City Council deciding that they should put all the 'undesirables' in one area to keep them away from the rest of the City.

@hurst21uk "Played it, found it as boring as Unchartered."

I've never played Unchartered - is it about an accountant who fails his ACCA exams? I'll admit that does sound boring

Radeon HD 7790 review

@ATARI I think anyone, of any age, who today played Pacman or Space Invaders for the very first time would think they were terrible games, and I would find it difficult explaining why these games were once so revered.

But someone who played Daytona or Sega Rally for the first time, say the HD remakes on XBL/PSN would be missing out on the arcade experience of the massive cabinets, huge bass speakers, force feedback steering etc.


PCs and consoles are improving all the time, games are improving all the time, the actual 'experience' may not be improving as quickly.

@manny :-) agreed, I love both console and PC gaming, anyone denigrating another persons choice of platform etc is silly

@DrStrangelove, again, agreed, nostalgia can massively influence comparing one era to another, but arcade games from the 80's like Williams Defender or the Star Wars one with their fancy bespoke joystick/yoke set-ups still cant be replicated well on modern systems

Attention PC Master Race!!!


Your current 'rig' is probably 10,000 times more powerful (on paper) then the SNES.

Can you name me one game that is 10,000 times better than Super Mario Kart?

How Sony Santa Monica mastered PlayStation 3

The idea of a fixed camera is slightly archaic
Every time I go back to a God of War game I always struggle initially with this,
but today I spent a couple of hours on GTA IV (played a it a lot on PS3 when it came out but haven't touched it for years, recently bought it cheap on Steam)


Visually it looked far better than I remember... BUT

crouch close to a wall, adjust camera angle -> elbows sticking out through wall

inside a building with narrow corridors, adjust camera angle -> face buried deep in the plasterboard


I'm guessing it's a design decision SSM made early on and I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing

Does anyone know if UK based people can buy stuff from the US store now that PayPal is available - previously I've had to buy US PSN cards from ebay, but this would be handier.

I'm guessing I'd have to use a proxy service to log on to the web-based store?

@gavindangerpaton Of course I don't know you - this is an anonymous internet forum.

I can only judge you on the comments you make - and I have judged.

P.S. exactly which 'Race' are you referring to?

"are Race is being "killed" not by morals but because the smart "good guys" always finish last!."

I really don't think you can classify yourself in the 'smart' category.

.. or the 'good guy' category either

@Nismo400R84

"Well there not and they will be quite confident and making more money in the couple of days doing the EG expo than some of us here make in a week."

There are plenty of activities in which people can earn more than you or I can in a week, such as lapdancing, pharmaceutical testing or fencing dodgy gear down the pub.

The people who engage in them don't tend to enjoy them, it comes more from desperation. Exploitation of human labour will never end, but if someone makes a small step to reduce it, surely that's a good thing?
