Console Wars Pathetic

 

 

Console Wars has been the 90s went SNES and Sega Genesis was released. I remember playing both console while growing up over friends houses. Throughout the years, gaming community having pointless debates over what is the better console. In my opinion, both Super Nintendo and Sega Megadrive are great video game consoles in the 90s. Even SNES is superior graphic and sound wise, Sega had great memorable games like Sonic the Hedgehog. SNES has the Italian plumber called Mario. Which Mario has 35th year anniversary after release of the NES game. Back in early 1990s, we had no internet but debate with friends at school about these consoles. There were game magazines showcase games and prices of the consoles. Readers have something to look forward to at launch and local game store. Gamers lineup to get their hands on a new console.

What about playing the game hands on at video game stores? I was that kid that play the games then brought them. As time goes by, new video game consoles started to emerged throughout the industry. PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64 came after SNES vs Sega Genesis. There are still argument at school about it. We did have internet back went N64 and PS1 released. I remember AOL first came out with nasty dial up. There was a site called “Gamefaqs” and had a forum talking about anything gaming. Again many gamers have a debate about PS1 and N64 retro consoles. In my opinion, I owned both PS1 and N64 growing up.

Nintendo 64 had a small library of games but had 4 player support. The game console was family friendly at the time. PlayStation was gear toward casual players with mostly JRPG games. Nintendo still has Mario and Sony had Crash Bandicoot.

 

 

 

Big Three Consoles

I loved both console growing up but can’t tell which is better. Maybe you guys will tell which is the better PS1 or Nintendo 64? Moving right along is Original Microsoft Xbox and PlayStation 2 along with Nintendo GameCube. These are the big three in the early 2000s. I don’t own a Nintendo GameCube at the time but brought Xbox and PS2. Xbox had a small amount of games like Nintendo GameCube. I did a blogpost about it if you want to read it. PlayStation 2 was the longer lasting console the Xbox and GameCube. PS2 had the most games among the two consoles. There were three groups of gamers who passionate about the consoles. Xbox and PlayStation 2 had online but don’t know about Nintendo Gamecube. It was not big as nowadays but manly couch play (local multiplayer).

 

 

 

Cont

After the big three retro console was decommissioned. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 was born, both consoles were cater to hardcore gamers. Mainly third person shooter like Halo and Call of Duty. Nintendo had Wii U which is a upgrade from the previous console.

Recently, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is still going head to head. Sony and Microsoft was the biggest competitors in the gaming industry in decades. Gamers still debating about being a console gamer. What about PC gamers? PC is not a gaming console but have software dedicated to it. Nintendo Switch have a great lineup of Ips that rival both PS4 and Xbox One. I heard that Nintendo is upgrading the Switch for 4K gaming like PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Speaking of 4K, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X is going to released in November despise the Coronavirus Pandemic. Pre-orders have been sold out in major retailers like Walmart, Gamestop, Best Buy and many more. I did a survey going to people live streams on Twitch asking them “are you getting the new consoles?”. Some reply “no I am waiting or yes I am”.

 

 

 

Closing

 

Once PS5 and Xbox Series X released, there will be people unboxing, tweeting and start a console war. Console wars is manly a common theme in video game community. If you like a certain console don’t ridicule them or start a flame wars. You don’t have to start a pointless argument over video game consoles. People have different opinion on things and you can’t agree with everyone. If you like to have a discussion about video games fine don’t take it to far. People think console wars is dead due to Microsoft and Sony partnership. Some gamer will get their feeling hurt about talking trash about their favorite console. Maybe went generation ahead console wars will end or died. I don’t know if console wars be dead tho. There is a video game based on console wars called Hyper Dimension Neptuina. I might do a review of it soon.

In closing, I don’t participle in console wars but others do. I think it’s pointless in my opinion because of bricking. Go with your gut to see what console is for you. If you are passionate about any console, express it in a positive way possible. Went will this console war end? Will we gamers lay down our controllers and embrace each other? How are waving the white flag of defeat? Make sure to buy retro console on Amazon or local game store. I have affiliate links for those who wants to purchase these consoles I have mention. Tell me what you think of console wars on social media or comments. What do you think the best console is?

Opera Gx Web Browser Summary Opera is a web browser that was developed in 1995. This web browser was in the dark for years. In 2020 or 2019 Opera Gx was born. I recently saw a YouTube Ad about Opera new gaming web browser. Curious to test it out and see no difference in this browser. Although, there is a free VPN which helps protect and secure internet connection. Most VPN have monthly or yearly fees to use. Opera Gx offers a free vpn with no extra charge. This browser allows use to control ram and cpu usage. You know that Google Chrome takes a lot of resources and cpu. Are you tired of tabs talking a lot of ram or memory? Opera Gx can eliminate that with one click. I have test it out and someone makes your connection slower than usual. Well at least you don’t have to worry about tabs taking up cpu space. Another thing is finding the best deals on video games. I think it’s mainly PC games not console. When I browser there were some free games to download or buy. There is some upcoming games to look forward to and buy for great price. Check out what is the best deal for your wallet. Speaking of gaming, Opera Gx is integrated with Discord and Twitch. You can connected it with one click of a button. Users can use the option to tone down ram for pc gaming. If you want to add your website, speed dial the url and put on the home page. User can change layout of your web browser like colors, wallpaper and more. There is sound effects and a lot of option to play around with. More Features If you have a Instagram account, users can connected it but I don’t know about others. Personalize your web browser with extensions to make your experience great. Opera Gx have limiters to reduce lag on PC gaming. Discord is not the only messenger website out there like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and others for chat.

Users can have dark pages and many more. Opera is still a early access web browser. If you want to give feedback to Opera go to their forum. They will take GX to the next level and improve on it. Opera Gx is designed for gamer like me. You don’t have to be a gamer to use this. You might want to use original one instead. In the future, other competitors like Google, Mozilla and Microsoft would make a gaming browser. I am hoping to see more features coming Opera GX. When I go live on Twitch and other streaming platform. I am hoping to use and see how it goes. Opera is making a comeback and remember hearing about the company in general. Gaming is growing throughout the years. It’s not a waste of time like Joe Rogan says. Its not like it was 20 years ago went we had no internet nor streaming. Gaming is a niche that people can make money off. Closing Companies is not partnering up with streamer to sponsor their products. Just look at Esports which is a great way to advertise your products. That being said, try out Opera Gx we browser and see for yourself. Will it help reduce lag? How will Opera cater to gamers? Keep supporting Opera Gx and hopes to continue to grow.
