The MFGamers Podcast

Recommended Posts

Just got round to listening.

Good show! 

 

I haven’t bought a physical game since RDR2 but I’m at the point now where I don’t care so much over price differences. If I really want to play a game on launch, I’ll pony up the money, well aware of how much it will drop over time or go to GamePass or PS+.

 

I could be wrong, but I think on a technical level, even with disc games and even old carts, you’ll only buying the license to play them. Doesn’t make much difference due to an old N64 being offline and they can’t stop you from playing it, like they can stop you now if they turn servers off for something like Destiny, but I think the theory is still there.

I saw a YouTube video where they proved this was bullshit actually and is a myth encouraged by companies. You do own the game at that point and you’re free to do what you want with it apart from basically copying it. I’ll try and find it. But it also pointed to a legal case (with the proof  and documentation) where someone sued a game company and got their money back as they basically killed functionality and access to a game they owned - one of these online focused games. It’s something we’re all able to do but obviously the cost is huge to follow through and actually take the companies to court to the point  it’s not worth it which is why it’s not a bigger problem. But he did it to prove a point and had the money to. When I get some spare time I’ll search for it in my history.

Great podcast @Sly Reflex and @Bigkopman. Team physical for me, unless it's ridiculously cheap. Too many games have been dissapointments that I've gladly sold on. Don't mind so much with Steam, as I know I'll be able to play it in another 15 years and I can return it if it's shite.

genuinely didn't realise my Day's Gone rant lasted so long 😄  That's before I got to the bits I really didn't like either

I was gonna cut it down a bit but it was difficult to find a spot to cut out, so I left it as is.

I wasn't even going to moan about it, I start off saying it's a decent game, not a disaster, but it's got some easy criticism. Then when I started it was hard to stop, I didn't even get to the Captain

 

You might even agree with most of it tbh

“You’ll quite often arrive at a place, hide in the bushes.” Dangerman, 2019

 

Edit: Wow that was the longest monologue ever.

 

No I haven’t finished TW3, I’ll finish it this summer.

I personally enjoyed the Days Gone rant. :)

 

I forgot to update my ‘Want’. Rage 2 was scrubbed off as soon as I saw a proper gameplay video and not a trailer. Looks completely dull and uninteresting, nothing like the OTT marketing.

hopefully I've not fucked anything up

Nearly! You copied and pasted the date so it said 26th of May, so I had to fix that, but other than that, spot on.

Enjoyed that, good conversation, boys.

 

I do have enough in my savings for a decent new TV, but it’s all going to the move-out fund.
