  1. I’ve thought about this and I really can’t think of a bigger jump than 16bit to 32bit. Especially if we can cherry pick titles from along the console lifespan.

    When I think of the best racing game on the SNES, and put it up against Ridge Racer 4 or Sega Rally, it’s just such an incredible difference, an experience not possible on the systems before. 


    Sure, jumping from Toy Story to Clockwork Knight is not as impressive, but you know what I mean.


    Yeah the Dreamcast was nice, going from e.g. House of the Dead 1 to 2, for me it was great. But I had a Japanese DC on RGB scart in my uni room and ‘normal’ people had no idea it wasn’t a PlayStation.

  2. I would have said I’m pretty nifty at Tetris and just hit the top 10 on score attack of Tetris Effect Connected. However, I’ve played so much and seen so many actual top players playing that I am under no illusions of my actual skill level. 

    I was once playing a level of Bangaio HD on the 360 and could not beat my own score/time. Was pretty annoyed and checked the online scoreboard where I was ranked 2 in the world for that level. “Ok that makes sense” I thought. But only about 15 people were playing it so it’s less about my glorious level of skill and more about finding a niche.

    My only dalliances into something similar was when I used to play Clash Royale, I would occasionally watch Nick at Nite and Molte's videos on YouTube whilst eating my dinner; [b]mainly to see their playstyles but they were entertaining too.[/b]

    I don't think I'll ever understand why people watch others play games. Even if the person playing the wasn't a masive tryhard, I would just rather play a game, and yet so many streamers are absolutely awful people. Obviously, I'm an out-of-touch decrepit old man, but when there are so many good games to play yourself, why are people so fond of watching loud obnoxious youths scream obscenities at each other?

    Remember that thread saying about old people threads we haven’t had her yet. Guess what, we have them.

    Well try and understand it then. Surely curiosity triggers discovery, not sitting in your y fronts feeling confused. Not yet anyway.

    Amazing stuff, keep us updated. I’m going to reheat my coffee in a microwave. 20 seconds! Technology is astounding isn’t it.

    I’m with you here 100%. And on top of that, when I swing my microwave door closed - there is this device that keeps it closed, apparently it’s called a latch. News to me. The world is amazing. I’m glad Zok is experiencing such revelations.

    So do we think the Loki series is going to be all about him time travelling around Earth, cropping up to cause mischief and causing the incidents that were unexplainable or bizarre in our reality (JFK assassination, Lord Lucan, etc.)?


    Kind of like Quantum Leap, where Sam is a cunt trying of mess things up.


    Could work.

    That is the thought that popped up into my head yeah. Could be good.
