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.

My rig's a POS, and it (used to) play emulated games just fine. SFxMM ran slow as fuck on my rig, so I couldn't even play it. I did watch a runthrough, though - and I'd agree with all your complaints. But hey, it's a free fangame that Capcom gave an official greenlight, so I'm not too sore about it sucking ass.

Picked up Shovel Knight for the 3DS yesterday and cleared the first two areas. I am utter shit at the game (never been good at platformers or old Nintendo games) but it will never not be satisfying to clear an area or boss you've been having trouble with... I just wish I didn't have to bleed money to do it as hard as I do. Most other games these days lack that kind of challenge and satisfaction I feel.

Also free Plague Knight DLC any day now... I hope. It is the end of Q2 after all.

Related to the new teaser—Scott put the following letters in the metadata for his site: gsfecfbs, Decode it with a simple Caesar cipher, and it becomes fredbear. The evidence that FNAF4 is going to be about the original Fredbear's Family Diner is stacking up.

WB knew the PC port of Arkham Knight was shit.

http://kotaku.com/sources-warner-bros-knew-that-arkham-knight-pc-was-a-1714915219

>“I will say that it’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the game was in such a horrible state,” said one quality assurance tester who worked on the game for years. “It’s been like this for months and all the problems we see now were the exact same, unchanged, almost a year ago.”

>Two sources, requesting anonymity to avoid jeopardizing their careers, spoke with Kotaku over the past week in hopes of explaining how the broken PC version of Arkham Knight made it out the door. They both said that Warner Bros. was aware of the many issues facing Arkham Knight on PC and that the publisher chose to ship the game regardless, not to maniacally screw over customers—but because they believed it was good enough.

Reason why the game was delayed many times is because Rocksteady underestimated game development for PS4 and Xbox One.

>“Getting it to work on consoles was impossible for months,” said our tester source. “That’s part of why the game got delayed so many times, they were totally unprepared for how hard it was on next-gen consoles.”

>In various meetings, QA teams were told the new consoles were “not nearly as easy to work with as [Rocksteady] expected” and testers should focus time on finding console bugs. This particular team was made up of roughly 100 people, with about 10% focused on the PC version.

>“We reported literally thousands of bugs that were specific to the PC version relating to the frame rate,” said our QA source. “All sorts of fucked up texture issues. The Batmobile in particular has always fucked things up on PC.”

Article also explains why certain PC ports from WB like Shadow of Mordor and Dying Light were good, while others like Arkham Origins and Mortal Kombat X were bad.

Arguably, the risk should be borne by the one who seeks to reap the reward. By requesting the public to fund their projects, Sony risks little yet still nets the end profit. This is offloading the costs of doing business to the consumer.

Now angel investors, individual people who invest capital into a project or venture, are not a new thing, however investors usually receive something like debt, securities, or partial ownership in the venture. Furthermore, there are laws in place to protect private, layman investors as they could be easily targeted by unscrupulous individuals. Given the recent historical events, people are more skeptical about the motives and practices of large businesses when it comes to taking advantage of individual consumers.

This is what happens to any game that's popular. Lies and rumors, peddled by people who have no stake in the success of the game but do so merely because they are bored is common-place for more highly anticipated titles. This just happens to be the first time a Fire Emblem title is highly anticipated, due to Awakening brining in a larger audience (whether it's due to the inclusion of some common-sense difficulty mechanics, change in the character art/aesthetic of the game, or merely it was a sequel that came in at the right time is open for debate).

Not as shitty as the original report, but still significantly shitty indeed.

I'm not a big Fire Emblem fan (don't hate; just never followed it), but this new game keeps sounding terrible ever time I hear about it. I know Awakening divided fans with its "waifu" approach, but Fates just turned up all the negative weeb-pandering material to 11.

The only saving grace from all this is that Nintendo of America will tone down or remove all this problematic garbage for the West. Recently, NOA announced Fates would have gay and lesbian love options. Despite the execution being unnecessarily complex (one version for gay; one version for lesbian), it was still a big move from Nintendo, considering the company's family image. It makes me wonder if NOA and NOE may have pushed NOJ to include that, as it was included in a patch in the original Japanese version. May explain why the love options are so limited.

Here's the thing: there is no reason WHY something like this exists. It is a process. That process can be used by anyone for any purpose. Indies can use it to fund indie projects, megacorps can use it to make sure there's sufficient interest in a project before committing to it, politicians can use it to fund political campaigns, charities can use it for charity drives, whatever.

You sure you got your information right? You're probably getting it confused with the patch Nintendo did for Tomodachi Life. Speaking of which, according to Trinen (grain of salt here) that patch didn't remove the ability to get gay married in that game, but involved a data transfer glitch and happened to coincide with the discovery that people were deliberately making male-looking Female Miis to get around the game's marriage limitations, causing the two to get conflated.

Bullshit. People have been making these same arguments about Nintendo's situation with third parties since the days of the N64.

>196617
When the consoles are functionally identical, that's true. When the consoles have legitimate hardware differences that make different ones good at different things, it's not. The DS was the only system capable of playing the original incarnation of TWEWY for example--later they made the "Solo Remix" or whatever that could run on iPad, and that's fine and all, but making a port of the game for PSP at the time the original was made would've been stupid. It would've cost a lot more to put it on PSP because the PSP port would have had to be redesigned to work on the PSP's single screen and lack of touchscreen.

Nintendo systems tend to focus less on hardware power than they do on innovative UI options and things of that nature. This makes Nintendo games uniquely suited for gameplay experiences one can't have on other platforms. Many hardcore gamers write these off as gimmicks and bitch about the fact that the Wii isn't a PS3 or the Wii U isn't a PS4, but it is for exactly the reason that you've just stated that third PS4 would be a waste of everyone's time and money.

If there is no need for console exclusivity, then there is no need for another console.

The only justification for another console is a different approach that makes different games possible which wouldn't be on the other systems. Sony and Microsoft are playing an arms race of making identical consoles and selling them at a loss. If the NX is just a PS4 with higher stats, Nintendo is going to hemorrhage money even faster than Sony and Microsoft's game divisions do.

I think most people are asking for a console that doesn't surrender traditional games for the gimmicks. A DS game can only be played on a DS, but it had everything it needed to play PSP games too.

The thing is, the Wii U's third-party situation is worst than any Nintendo console before. Nintendo doesn't even have EA, Ubisoft or Activision. Three significant losses, regardless of personal opinion of these publishers. (No sports game, no Assassin's Creed and no Call of Duty).

I rarely see conversation about the XBox 1, and when I do it's almost always referred to as "first XBox" or "original XBox". There was never an "Xbox 2", so "XBox 1" doesn't make much as much sense as saying "PlayStation 1" (which was just called "PlayStation").

Although, there was some confusion about that at first (I recall a magazine showing the original XBox for a blurb about the Xbone, and some swindles on eBay), I don't think it was nearly as prolific as the Wii U. At that point, you had to go out of your way to purchase the original Xbox over the Xbone since it was no longer sold in any store (except gaming stores, where it was sold as Used, and clerks likely knew to double-check that it was actually an original XBox they wanted.) The consoles also looked distinct.

It does now, but it took over a year for that to start, after they did the first large price cut. Most system releases start out a bit slow (the Wii was a huge surprise in sales early on. The sales of the PS4 and Xbone are also faster than usual, to my understanding), so that isn't too surprising, but it seriously lacked the momentum that usually picks up within that first year primarily due to a lackluster software catalog for both first- and third-parties. The first big, original title was Mario 3D Land, which didn't come out until 8 months after its release. While it did have a launch library larger than most Nintendo launches (12 games), they were almost entirely ports or sequels of franchises with mild popularity on handhelds. The catalog really picked up mid-2012, and the system hit its stride in late 2012/early 2013 (which it's held since).

Since when do gamers enjoy games? The only thing I ever see gamers talking about is how much they hate everything related to video games for not being good enough or not doing things the way they wanted them to.

Disliking gamers is not something you do because you dislike video games. It's something you do because you *like* video games and find the toxic culture of pure contempt for the medium you love so disgusting. No one loves video games more than the people who make them. And no one hates video games more than the internet communities dedicated to video games.

I actually see that as a bit of a positive thing. Improvement on a medium doesn't come from the people who like things just the way they are - they find flaws in it and work based off them.

Hell, the people who worked on Goldeneye hadn't really done videogames before so instead of following the tried and true tropes of games and FPS at the time they took something and worked on it with their own perspective.

And even then its not really about a hatred of games, at least on in the case of Kamiya and the other examples given. Its more about the people surrounding the games. Even the people involved in it realize its a toxic community.
Well. Except for those who're overly sensitive and get pissy about people not liking shitty behaviour.

I'm only in the first. Got past the tutorial which was all fine and dandy and am now in my first mission. It's mostly my frustration at how oldschool the stealth mechanics are. Get spotted once and every guard in the level psychically knows where you are at all times, which is basically the same as a failure state, because you can't really fend off more than 3 enemies at once. So whoops there's a little crack you didn't see and that guy instantly spotted you through it and time to reload. Yet again. So really, I'm just mad a stealth game for being a stealth game. But games like Mark of the Ninja and Human Revolution did it so much better, that I'm kinda frustrated, because those games made me think I like stealth games when apparently I don't.

It's tough to move on, but move on we must, so let's try.

Scott Cawthon emailed a few YouTubers to announce that Five Nights at Freddy's 4 would be released in early August, not on Halloween (as was suggested but not confirmed by the initial batch of teaser images). While the game's release will coincide with the one-year anniversary of the first game's release, Halloween will still be a special date: Scott has promised to release some form of free DLC for FNAF4 then.

Oh, and the trailer for FNAF4 will show up some time this weekend.

If we assume that development started after he released 3, he's spent about five months on it - a month less than it took him to develop 1, but five months likely spent full-time on development (as opposed to his on-and-off development of 1).

The FNAF fandom seems excited about the new game, and the changes to the formula (takes place in a home, no cameras, possible free-roaming gameplay) might also draw in people who didn't give 3 a chance because it looked like more of the same. Scott made a smart decision by showing off gameplay in this trailer.

The whole selling point since the first few trailers was the "I am a demon" phrase. He's not a good person, we've known this since forever. He's sympathetic due to his background, and he is the lesser of two evils, however he is not a saint; he's a soldier doing what he thinks is right or what needs to be done. He's in the grey and that makes him a compelling protagonist.

I remember being really annoyed when I played MGS4 for the first time because I thought the plot went too far with trying to justify Big Boss's bullshit. He's definitely never been a saint, but the "misunderstood guy with good intentions" Final Fantasy/Tales villain narrative was getting pushed really hard. Peace Walker didn't do a ton to fix this other than a few lines indicating that Big Boss might've become a jerk, and maybe his Che fetishization, but it's hard to tell whether Big Boss is being used as a mouthpiece for Kojima's own views there or whether it's supposed to be a red flag for the audience. Maybe that's where it's coming from?

The theme of Phantom Pain is communication and language whereas 2's theme was general misinformation and manipulation of the media, and 3's "no country is truly good or just". This said, Language ties into information which form "spin" it's how people like Stalin can look like a hero or how say Abraham Lincoln could look like a villain. It's about context and how the information is presented so I think we're going to see those lines blurred here in Phantom Pain.

I choose to ignore Portable Ops because it butcher's Big Boss's character and the whole concept of Outer Heaven and Peace Walker because I hate kids and the whole thing was just omega levels of retard.


Big Boss is a man who has been pushed and manipulated and now he has a vision and a chance to escape it without really realizing he's simply falling into the same web he's been trying to escape. He ends up a lunatic (which we'll see happen in this game) but his character arc from point A to C is a relatively logical progression all things considered.

Usually that's because the model is made transparent in first person and the arms/weapons are "drawn on" a layer above what's rendered in the environment. Bioshock 2 and Human Revolution are good examples of that--the former lets you see a model when you're astral projecting and the latter switches to third-person a lot, yet you're still a ghost in first person.

TF2 actually has a console command (cl_first_person_uses_world_model 1) that enables a "true" first-person mode: an actual view from a spot on the character model. It's good for demonstrating both the difference and why "ghost PCs" are still common (mostly because it causes views inside the character models and obstruction).

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.
