    You know you want to. JPN model?

    Oh god, I might end up buying this.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Yes. Except Scarlett Johansson isn't a manic pixie dream girl in that film.
  4. It's just a dry run for whatever Apple will claim to have invented in around three year's time.

    I'm using the 8BitDo DIY kits for NES and SNES but I'm hoping for a Nintendo equivalent to Joyzz now. Couldn't get on with the actual 8BitDo pads themselves.

    Strongly considering this, as it's the most responsive wireless option.

    I don't even remember this, which seems like a blessing. I've seen better student films than that rubbish. How so? I found it quite upsetting on the first watch but that was because I went through a similar experience a few months beforehand. Years later, I still really enjoy it.

    Razor Blade Smile. I remember it coming into work with some hullabaloo about it being Manga Video's first live action release- I watched about half of it before turning it off, as it was just irredeemably terrible. An awful stew of really poor acting, titillation and crap effects. After turning it off I felt embarrassed for all concerned and wondered how it was ever seen as fit for release but by that point I imagine the filmmakers were just cutting their losses. I'd forgotten about it completely but it popped up in a recent RedLetterMedia video and the memories came flooding back. Truly woeful.
  9. Paying full price to stream something seems like absolutely terrible value. But I accept that I'm a thirtysomething currently waiting for Virgin to fix my crap broadband, so I'm probably not the target market for this sort of nonsense.
  10. Echoing my post from the Xbox SAD thread but I'm struggling to see how these "Netflix for games" services are going to be sustainable in the long term when publishers will just be getting a cut of a subscription fee for their multi-million dollar AAA games, especially after Google takes their share. The business model feels like a race to the bottom that'll benefit Google, at the expense of publishers. Surely standalone digital purchases remain the most profitable (and therefore attractive) option?
  11. How sustainable is Game Pass in the long term if it begins to eclipse standalone digital sales? I'm curious about how it can offer publishers a good deal if their latest games are put up on or shortly after release and they're only seeing a cut of a subscription fee. Obviously physical copies and digital sales subsidise support of Game Pass to some extent but it feels like that's not a viable solution if the perceived value of Game Pass (or similar services) prove to be more attractive to Microsoft's customers and it starts to erode a publisher's traditional sources of revenue.

    Can you complete your pile of shame?

    The saving grace, really. I've recently spent some time on modular synth forums and it put some of my gaming spend into perspective. The amount of cash blown on a month-by-month basis there is eye-watering- some of the single modules are more than the price of a console and there are people that get a few new ones every month. At least gaming isn't making me spend thousands on a credit card.
  13. I wrote a paper on this during my university days in 2012. High-speed wireless broadband was only being trialled in the case study back then, so the mid-2005 figure is inaccurate. I also said reliable broadband. I live in inner London and Virgin Media's fuckery and denial of issues affecting their service meant that we were watching DVDs instead of Netflix last weekend. Not that we're under thirty, granted.
  14. Presumably people in areas without reliable broadband or people that want to watch films or programmes that aren't available via streaming services.
