So although there seems to be an agreement on this game looking awful, discussion in the General thread seems enough to merit a containment thread. This is that thread.

I'm only a bit into the game, but I have to say I'm enjoying the classical music channel way more than I thought I would. It keeps matching the atmosphere of what's going on REALLY well.

Here are some reasons why you shouldn't support EA and Disney's new Battlefront game this holiday season and how they'll convince you to pay for game with a fraction of the features and content Battlefront II, the ten year predecessor to EA Battlefront, had for almost double the price of a standard AAA new release. But most importantly, this will show you why EA should not be supported and how entrenched they are into gaming journalism and the likeliness that they will make sure to maximize review scores and praise in order to sell their projected 9 million copies among PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Redeemed themselves from Korra, I take it is what you mean, the $20 game that while short had extremely tight gameplay and a fantastic combat system that seamlessly allows you to cycle between using all four elements?

No yeah I can see how they would need to be redeemed from that, what a tragedy that was.

I only just recently decided to try this game, oh my god, this is one of the worst Mega Man games I've ever played. Awful stage design, useless weapons, and extremely cheap bosses. (Vega is almost impossible without a bunch of E-tanks) Also, no save feature. A game released in 2012 uses passwords instead. Even MM9 let you save.

Anyway, vidya games or whatever.

That article doesn't even mention the Sonic twitter. Also that tweet is an exception given how

A.) It actually is literally SEGA's PR department trying to score a "sick burn" to rile up the fans and not a disgruntled fanboy, and the snarky passive-aggressive attitude is because that twitter account is actually in-character as Sonic. It's not meant to be taken too seriously, and GT knows that. Their tweet reply even called it a burn.
and B.) GT puts out videos that have no discernable credit for who wrote it, and they always have the exact same narrator. And given how GT responded to "Sonic's" tweet, it's safe to assume this is the entire website's official opinion rather than one writer.

He does still do little snippets of that sort of comedy:
//youtube.com/watch?v=UrFtlpHsgpsyoutube thumb

He mentioned in a GAF thread that he wanted to move away from the redubs because they were typecasting him as more of a bitter cynical contrarian than he actually was, and he wanted some licence to be genuinely enthused in childlike wonderment at certain gaming things. Not a bad sentiment in this Youtube Personality age, I'd argue.

Ok, now this is pure bullshit. As if waiting for long periods weren't enough, 2K gets here with its usual things, but now full of rampant shit.
I'm really sorry for the devs, the game has great potential, but overpriced stuff and content that should be in the game by default THAT isn't there? That's a real killer for me, no thanks.
Also, season pass my ass, it's just another way for 2k to say "another DLC bundle".

I wonder if there's the option to create custom sprites or edit it so that certain objects have different properties than they usually have, like a fireflower granting invincibility like stars do. Granted this has a high risk for trolling, but it could lead to some really creative stage remixes.
