Re: Australian gamers stunned as ABC cancels Good Game

From an outsider looking in, it does seem that the ABC threw Hex and NichBoy under the bus with their public statement. The ABC should be ashamed of themselves.

Re: Australia: How to speed up your PSN downloads

This seems to line up with the reports I've been seeing about Sony throttling PSN download speeds. The fact that it's so easy to work around tells me that Sony can't even do that right.

Re: This new Xbox One controller is perfect for the Aussie summer

The Xbox Onesie was cool but this is just dumb. It doesn't even work as a normal controller.

Re: Nintendo Switch Presentation Recap

Weak launch lineup and high price compared to the PS4 and Xbox One have me highly doubtful that the Switch will take off. I don't think even Zelda can save it from selling poorly at this point.

Re: One more chance to get your hands on an NES Classic Mini!

I'd be more tempted if they were a regular sales item, rather than "hey, let's piss everybody off by just sending the minimum to barely fill shelves out to the stores and then let everybody fight over them!" Yeah Nintendo loves to throw its retail partners under the bus. Relevant Youtube video: cRi...

Looked for equaliser and ensured it was turned off.

As Bluetooth still sounds fine I've used the problem as an excuse to buy a set of Bluetooth earbuds...
Yeah I'd say your 3.5mm jack is borked.

Re: The "Pay It Foward" Thread

I have a LoL starter pack code that came with my PAX Aus pass. Contains 8 champions, a 10 win XP booster and 4 win IP booster.

Only valid on OCE servers and the leaflet seems to imply that it's only for new players (if an existing player wants to test it, feel free to PM me).
