Your comparison to airlines is apt, except you’re using it incorrectly. Adding an easy mode would be how planes work now. If you play the game at its intended difficulty, you’re in first class. Everyone else is in coach, in that they still get to experience the game and get to the destination with you, they just had a… Read more
This attitude is literally pathetic. Like, I feel bad for people like you who need to feel like someone is down in order for you to be up. Enjoy all that hard work you put into...a game somebody else created. At least the filthy poors can't get in and taste some of your rarified air. ffs Read more
Imagine admitting you’re basically everything wrong with gaming culture and actually being proud of it. Jesus Christ.
Your “first class” argument is just stupid. Yes, I’d be pissed, because I PAID MORE FOR FIRST CLASS, and it’s a pointless comparison to begin with because literally no airline on the planet has done,… Read more
Well to be fair that’s true of all video games. But there is a certain elitest attitude around the Souls games that rubs me the wrong way. I mean I get it if your a fan you feel some ownership over the games, but at the same time the this is a game for ME and not you I think is kind of dumb. I mean Elden Ring looks… Read more
Call me a pansy and give me some cheat codes so I can play this incredible game.
(I love everything about this and I just don’t have the time to play this game but I still want to experience it.) Read more
Your view is that you can’t enjoy success, only enjoying a perception of a gap between yourself and others. Plainly, this is a shitty worldview - and you’ve already decided to apply it to real life as well.
You are a shitty person. Read more
This is an aspect I don’t particularly understand. I don’t understand how fans “Gatekeep” this particular medium. As a player, you literally have no ability to do anything about another player’s experience, in so much as they can easily be played single player/offline, and largely don’t really have co-operative play… Read more
I hear what you’re saying and I have no problems whatsoever with mods, I wouldn’t be mad if they put in an easy mode, it wouldn’t affect my enjoyment of the game at all. I do think the “put in an easy mode” camp tends to hand-wave away the fact that it would require a significant investment of time and money. The… Read more
That’s a dumb opinion to have, IMO. They can leave the base game totally as is, super difficult for you and other players who like it, but still offer a mode that make’s it a bit easier OR a bit harder. That doesn’t detract from you or anyone else’s ability to enjoy the game. In this case it was a mod made by a fan… Read more
It’s just time to start regulating loot box & gacha mechanics. It’s time to get some decent psychological research on the subject to help determine what elements of the loot box mechanism are harmful and victimize the susceptible. Read more
Every positively-spun article Kotaku writers have written about this game have felt like an addict defensively scrambling to justify their actions. The lack of self-awareness is... not something I expected. All of them are missing the forest for the trees. Read more
The intended audience doesn’t change that these games are predatory. You make it sound like criticism regarding the exploitation of whales is somehow platform dependent. Read more
If you had been shown that daytime footage without context, you would absolutely have believed it to be real footage.
I came in here to shrug my shoulders at another pointless tech demo, but dude, that shit looks real. If someone had just sent this to me as a spooky video someone recorded, it never would have occurred to me that the whole thing might be rendered. Read more
You’re right, it looks...Unreal. But seriously, are you nuts? That daytime shot looks totally real. Read more
