The shitty launch of Magic Duels on Steam made me think. Has there ever been a single game with online features where servers didn't completely shit themselves day 1?

So the playable demo for Indivisible just came out, and I had a lot of fun with it, though things are too hectic to really pay attention to the artwork. Thoughts?

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.

Fourteen Alonne Knights, two Alonne Captains. All of them unavoidable - or at least, not consistently avoidable, there's one Knight who you can sometimes sneak past but it's totally random.

They actually made it worse than vanilla. What the FUCK, FromSoft!

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.

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.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is out now, and reception overall seems to be relatively positive. Gameplay is a lot deeper and more fun than the first. Storywise it's more along the veins of Takahashi's older Gears/Saga work than Blade, for better or worse.

Goddamn, everything about Splatoon is like a manifestation of the early 2000's. I'm not even gonna play the game, because I really don't care about shooters on consoles, but I still love watching everything about it just for the massive wave of nostalgia that hits me everytime I see it.

I don't care about shooters *at all*, and I can say that Splatoon is incredibly fun even so. I got it as part of the packaged-in Wii U bundle thing, so I figured I would give it a try, and it's tons of fun. It's not really like a standard shooter since you're not trying to kill opponents, and that makes a big difference in how the thing plays and feels. It's less about twitch reflexes and more about strategy.
