Falling apart due to crypto? Demand is low so, oversupply thus prices will fall and this is good for consumers? Did I pass economics guys?

You did not even begin to pass the basic 101 course if you seriously believe that it is only about GPUs and that the crypto crash is the sole reason for the "falling apart".

F for effort though...
No harm here. I actually don't know enough, which is why I was asking. Thanks for the info though.

I remember seeing that anti-piracy ad when it was new and laughing my ass off at it for the exact reasons listed in the article. It was cartoonishly over the top.

But, at the end of the article, they correctly state why piracy is still alive, well, and growing. The Balkanization of streaming services, and their total cost, is the media companies shooting themselves in not just one foot but both feet. By being as avaricious as possible, media companies themselves are driving piracy. To quote "...[they] became the very thing [they] swore to destroy."
That ad made it seem cool, I blame the music and 2000s edge. The solution has been proven to be a service one, not cost. Makes me think of the difference between Valve and Ubisoft.

Eagerly awaiting 4070 TI pricing, hoping AMD stays competitive.

That's another way to 'flush' the competition.

I have a strong feeling that some of you may be on the spectrum.

I don't know, that's an odd thing to say. Maybe it's a cultural barrier? Where are you from?

Assuming others are "on the spectrum" because they think it's weird that you said there should be a disclaimer before any media with a masculine female (like Vazquez, or, incidentally, lots of complaints about Sarah Connor in T2 vs T1 at the time of release), or that swearing, or whatever "vulgar" means, isn't feminine, is kind of strange.
This is where the world comes to be medically diagnosed and told they are making a fucking fool of themselves. sigh
I stand by what Sepharo said a couple weeks ago, as does everyone else.
You're right, I shouldn't play online doctor, but this is an occurrence I'm noticing more and more interacting with people online. Whether it's a forum, a discord, etc., people don't read the full context of messages, and fixate on one thing. So goes the term "on the spectrum", because you have to be somewhat autistic to misinterpret basic statements. Maybe I'm not providing the right cultural context before I speak. And maybe that cultural context doesn't matter to you at all. Geologically speaking, I am from the US.

Again, I apologize ascribing this to you or others, you may not be on said spectrum. I don't know whether this is due to a lack of IRL social activity, but I assure you, this phenomenon is real, and I've seen it.

Personally, I need to stay away from culture topics, apparently the only solution is live and let live. Will try to just stick to hardware discussions.

EDIT: After seeing Alex Jones skipping testimony, I will definitely not be using the term "on the spectrum" anymore. Again, I apologize to anyone I ascribed this to, no more. I hope you didn't conflate me with that monster, not a right winger.

I apologize for my comments, I wasn't talking for only myself partially, but to relate to those in that headspace who do have a problem with the direction games are going. I need to keep with the stance that these games are made to appeal to all markets, no matter how I may or may not like it, that's just the way the world is turning now. The future is indeed now, and I am an old man.

So, there can be no nuanced stances on the internet. I have a strong feeling that some of you may be on the spectrum. Maybe if we had this conversation in person, it would be different, or maybe it would just be the same. Will still support the site how I can, great articles. For now, I gotta peace out, later.

EDIT: No problem with what Quinn said. And I never said Ripley wasn't badass, she is. Ok I should replace the word masculine with vulgar. And I should replace men with "majority of men". Again, it's hard to convey what I really mean on this topic through a forum. The rest of you, you know who you are. If you're blocked, I did so to prevent things from going left, may unblock later.

Gotta stop you right there.
I guess you didn't enjoy the Terminator movies with Sigourney Weaver. The women's Olympic soccer team. Women's volleyball. Bodybuilding tournaments. And a myriad other things where women could be considered "acting" masculine.

I'm secure in my sexuality and watching women do things that men do and sometimes do it better doesn't harm me nor cause me to freak the fuck out.
Yo that's crazy, you didn't even read my comment Laugh2 , I highly enjoyed the Terminator movies what are you talking about, and it wasn't Sigourney Weaver in those, it was Linda Hamilton. What I meant was those guys don't mean acting masculine in terms of fitness, they mean in terms of demeanor. There is no nuance with you guys.

As an example of how poisoned and stupid this word is, just look at the discourse on the new Thor movie, even before its release. I watch a lot of movies so I come across this stuff on YouTube. Why do they call it "woke"? Because a woman plays a prominent role. That's it. Do you really think that Terminator 1/2, Alien, and Aliens would not be called "woke" by the right if released today? If you're definition of "woke" is not "minority and/or women bad" then you probably should not be using that word, since that's overwhelmingly how it is being used nowadays.
Gotta stop you right there, they would not call it "woke" because Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver were (and still are) considered hot and acted feminine but strong when needed to be. The reason so much media today is called "woke" is because men don't want to watch women act masculine, plain and simple. Does this disregard the population who non-conform to traditional views? Yes. This is how it will always be. You can't force men to like masculine women, at best just have to put a disclaimer that this film/game/product may not be for them.

As a minority, I've seen the "woke" term get so twisted it's lost all meaning. I'm tired of those on the right saying it, but I'm also tired of those on the left thinking I need some white savior to save me from my wants and desires. Most GTA protagonists aren't ethnically white. And technically, the last white protagonist was Trevor Phillips, and he wasn't even straight. Laugh2

I've started seeing this more and more. Some people just have nothing better to do than hawk player counts, and then proclaim the game "dead" a month or two after release, because new content/DLC/whatever isn't out already somehow, and the woe is the game. I don't get it... Pretty much everything I've decided to go look at the steam forums for, lately, has a post like that.
I think games like Fortnite and COD Warzone have really warped people's perception of what a healthy player base should look like, in terms of size at least.

I think of games like Halo Infinite, it's not a dead game but it sure has fallen from what the launch numbers were. I just play games that I like, it could have 0 players I'd still play it, if only with bots for multiplayer. Concurrent player numbers tell more of the story than lifetime counts. If you buy a game and start it up once (idling at main menu counts), you're counted as a lifetime player, which is what companies report in advertising.

If you want certain adult content, video games aren't it. It's obvious that we as a society are not deemed mature enough to 'play' games with such themes or suggestive characters, look at what characters Sony Studios create. Their characters are made in a way that you don't ogle them. I'm ok with the culture change if the entire next game feels closer to Max Payne 3. This series also needs to change from a gameplay perspective. It's going to be weird to see a GTA game that has an obvious bias, whereas before they made fun of everything and everyone. End of an era.

The Buriki One game is unique, would be fun to remember it's control scheme, so used to regular arcade layout. Closest I can think of using an arcade stick in that way is the character Goldlewis in Guilty Gear Strive, he has 8 different directional swings that you can do from the stick, pretty creative.
