@NEStalgia Oh, and calling ME pedantic? Now where's my Infinity glove thingy? Insolent Earthlings...

@DarthNocturnal dissidia has hackneyed dual shocks in the arcade. I'm guessing it's largely Sony funded in one way or another. It's sonys pokken. Unfortunately

@ThanosReXXX lol! And, after the hydraulic lov lift, it might be cheaper to just bu buy the real Ferrari.....

@NEStalgia If I had the money (and the floor space), I'd definitely go for that full package, though. I've seen one in action once, and a YouTuber who's name currently eludes me, made a video report on playing Project CARS in a full-on simulator like that, and it made quite the impression on me. (which was before I knew about all the bugs the game had, and before they lost all my respect by putting the supposedly already half-developed Wii U version in the shredder)

@ThanosReXXX if you had the money you dream of a hydraulic simulator rather than dreaming of the real deal Ferrari. We sure do dream big these days...

@NEStalgia If I had the money to buy and install a simulator in my home, I would still be a VERY long way off from being able to buy a real Ferrari. And besides then being limited to only one car, I'd also have to take care of the rather hefty parking zone fee over here, which is €4,75 an hour, all day, every day. People can apply for their own parking permit, but that can take up to a year before you get one, and in the mean time, you'd still have to park your car somewhere, which will cost you an arm and a leg while waiting for that permit...

Even if I would have been a millionaire, I'd still consider that to be a huge waste of money.

Let that sink in for a bit...

@ThanosReXXX somehow i think if you could afford a Ferrari you wouldn't be worried slo about that. . Daydreaming about the simulator i suppose it's adequate. Now back to luxury vehicles closer to our real budgets:

@NEStalgia Well, you'd be wrong, AGAIN. You really do need to get better at guessing "what would ThanosReXXX do", because as it stands now, you'd never even get past the first round of the game, or maybe not even past the preliminaries...

Like I said: even if I actually WAS a millionaire, or generously rich, I'd still think it's a waste of money. Not because I wouldn't be able to afford it, but simply because I'm VERY aware of useless spending of money, whether that is in large or in small amounts.

Just imagine that I'd indeed had to wait a year for a parking permit, and I had to park my car in front of my apartment building: that would cost me around €41.610, which is an insane amount of money to pay for parking in any sane person's book, no matter which way you look at it.

And let's be honest: who in their right mind likes to give any city or government any amount of his or her own, hard-earned cash?

I'd rather spend it on something actually useful or beneficial to myself...

@ThanosReXXX lol well sanity can't really be on the table for anyone buying something like a Ferrari to begin with . Then again i seea fair amount of such things here. It used to be rural. Then the rich folk started migrating here en masse. Now every intersection looks like Forza horizon. The game seems bland now. I see more porches at the supermarket than the first hour of Forza. Lamborghinis are popping up. And I'm seeing metallic paints now that reflect light like crazy the even Forza can't render . It's really obscene. Things like little sandwich shops are replaced by "farm to table organic" places with$13 sandwiches because that's the crowd now. You spend and keep up with the Joneses or stay home and speak with no one.

Edit of great, Google keyboard "upgraded" and now makesa mess if everything i type ! #wyping worked so so good and suddenly it's garbage.... Prepare for the typo King!

NEStalgia

@NEStalgia The sanity thing wasn't in regards to buying a Lambo, but in regards to needlessly filling the coffers of city and government officials. If I actually WAS a millionaire, then buying a Lamborghini would definitely NOT fall into the insane or waste of money category, seeing as it would perfectly line up with the last thing I said in the previous comment:

"I'd rather spend it on something actually useful or beneficial to myself..."

Just in case, for future reference, some things to know about me: I always speak my mind, so I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. No hidden truths, no reading between lines and so on. I'm the WYSIWYG guy...

Only during working hours will I (ever so slightly) color outside the lines, but at most to bend the truth somewhat, to fit the sales pitch, but still not too far from it to be offensive or untrue, which is what made me successful in the first place.

Both companies and customers like dealing with reliable people...

P.S.

I'm no grammar nazi, even though I have pointed out some minor typos to you every now and then, but in general, I won't hold it against people, if their typing skills are hindered by annoying touch screen keyboard schemes...

And besides: I've already gotten used to guys like rjejr with his still rather ""nails on a chalkboard"-like horrendous misspelling of "Nintendo", so I can handle a couple of typos from you every now and then as well...

It amazes me how well some of the BC 360 games fare, at least on the X. I bought Mickey's Castle of Illusion for a few bucks on the BC sale last week and fired it up. It's a really inspired platformer (reviews at the time panned it but it's really something exceptional IMO), but more importantly it doesn't look old at all, it looks beautiful and perfectly modern. Not as shiny as Ori, but gorgeous all the same. It's quite amazing.

Of course some games are beyond salvation, Deus Ex: Human Revolution I swear looks uglier now than it did at launch if that's possible....

NEStalgia

ThanosReXXX

@NEStalgia If you think that looks amazing, you should give Black from the OG Xbox a go. Already looks amazingly updated and upscaled on the S, and on the X, the resolution is double that of the S, so that should make it look even cleaner still.

And the gameplay is still VERY much intact. It was one of my surprise favorite games from the original developers of Burnout, and it's still fun to play.

@NEStalgia Only published by them, the game is not from EA's hands, but from the original Criterion team, luckily...

That was actually also why I was so pleasantly surprised by it. When I heard that they were making it, back in the day, I kinda thought that people who up til then were only famous for making these crazy arcade racers, weren't really the team to make a good and entertaining shooter, but they actually did, and that is why it is one of my surprise favorites, because I never knew it was going to be that good, and that I was going to like it that much...

@ThanosReXXX Ahh, yeah the original Criterion was great! And then there's the new Criterion......gulp

ThanosReXXX

@NEStalgia Yeah... let's not go there...

I think new Criteríon was behind SWBF2's starfighters. For what it's worth, they're quite improved from how they were in the first game.

ThanosReXXX

@DarthNocturnal Yeah, some new talent has been acquired, and they have improved, showing that surprisingly, EA hasn't let them wither and die, unlike some other studios they took over, so they actually have invested in them, after most of the original members left, and some good games have come out of it. But they'll still never be the original Criterion.

In many ways, it's more or less similar to the Rare/Microsoft story.

A Forza Horizon 2 Complete Add-on bundle has surfaced. One final hurrah before the delisting.

@NEStalgia Small picture. I can barely make out that it's a Star Wars theme. What is that? A pinball table display? And why send that to me? @DarthNocturnal mentioned the Stars Wars games, not me.
