Bloodlines 2: Thinbloods...


  • Storytellers

    I paid like £200 for my ps4 (and I generally buy my consoles second hand, not new). My laptop is 10 years old and, while it can do basic stuff like internet and mirc it can’t run anything higher spec than a SCUMM game. A decent gaming computer would cost…a LOT more than £200.

    So, for me, consoles are the cheaper option.


  • Storytellers

    Also I use my console to watch DVDs and netflix/amazon/etc instead of paying for a TV license or buying cable. Sure, I can watch that stuff on a laptop but when I have friends or family visiting it’s a bit more social.


  • Storytellers

    My point was kind of more ‘shouldn’t consoles be the “master race” if you’re buying a device mostly for gaming whereas you pretty much NEED a computer of some kind for numerous other reasons?’


  • Storytellers

    Not really because there’s a BIG difference between a cheap emachines blob or a little netbook or ipad (which a lot of people do their ‘computing’ from) and a machine capable of running the latest triple-A games. That difference in cost is usually more than the cost of a second-hand console.



  • PC for me…mods will exist I’m sure

    And that is why PC is master race. More and easier access to mods along with graphics that are generally of higher quality and always a better frame rate than consoles. I am spoiled, 30 and 60 frames per second make my eyes bleed. Give me that 100!!

    Also, I can build my computer to have a solid state drive. Load times are shrunk to nothing. I believe a recent update allows you to switch the HDD for SSD on Xbone’s. Not sure about PS4. It used to be for both systems, you ran a high risk of locking your system if you did that.

    tl;dr - PC is master race because it does what the console does, but does it better.


  • Storytellers

    I’m pretty sure you can put an SSD on PS4. You certainly can use an external drive after an update a year or so ago, I got a shiny terabyte one ^.^


  • Toreador Spine

    I’ve already got a quite decent PC, but I don’t have budget for a console, so I’ve already a solution. 🙂 Is this game already on sale?


  • Lead Storytellers Administrators

    @syn ps5 is going to have an ssd


  • Lead Storytellers Administrators

    @nik The PS5 is going to be an absolute beast of a machine. After looking at the specs and working in the computer hardware manufacturing world… If this thing comes out next year if it doesn’t cost over $1,000 then they are losing a shit ton of money on it haha


  • Storytellers

    They almost always make a loss on consoles, and have done for decades. People wouldn’t buy them if they had to pay actual cost (There was outrage when the PS3 was announced to initially cost $499-599 to consumers at launch even though Sony was making a substantial loss even at that price) The companies make up the loss into a nice tidy profit on peripherals and 1st party games - or at least they do if things work out well.

    They’re one of the classic definitions of a loss-leader 😄


  • Storytellers

    Also I’m hype AF for the PS5. So much excite. Will probably have to wait a year or two for the price to come down/second hand ones proliferate but I can’t wait ^.^ Am thirst for deets and previews.

    Like I get that everyone says Sony creates superior machines. I do. And when they tell me why I’m all “yeah that does sound like an objectively superior console.”

    But the PS controllers are impossible for me. The xbox controllers work fairly intuitively for me, so I stick to that brand.


  • Nosferatu

    For me it’s the other way around, PS4 controlers are pretty intuitive for me, and xbox ones confuse me. Also, I’ll be likely getting for ps4, because my notebook is shit =P

    Maybe like 10-15 years ago while playing Madden and friend of mine insisted I was only beating him because of the ps2 controller. So I had him bring over the xbox and proceeded to whoop on him using that controller as well.

    @zahana Oh make no mistake, I completely suck at any game that requires reaction times. FPS, Street Fighter type games, most sports games… I play those with all the skill of a grandma playing against their 12 year old grandkid.

    I’m only good at like the RPG types or the ones that are more like board game or empire builder games. Fallout, Bioware, and ESO I can do because they do the aiming for you, and split second timing isn’t really an issue. Those are also the games I like best, cuz Im most interested in story and character.



  • I don’t care either way as long as I get to play it



  • I am both hyped and scared for this. There has been a lot of really bad sequals being pumped out just for the cash influx lately. I just hope this isn’t one of them.

    This is Paradox. They do their homework on the games they create, and then continue updating it snd pumping out DLC for like the next 4 years.

    IF the game has problems, they’ll be with mechanics and balance. Not flavor, not plot. Like they really do their historical research on their games.



  • Good or bad i’m playing it
