Honestly, I would *love* to see RPGs in a non-European setting. Give me an RPG based on African Folklore .. or a survival horror game set in the Andes Mountains. The less homogeneous game development is, the better games we will get.
Been there since its inception 3 years ago and it really is a sight to see all the types of games being made by game devs of color, plus being able to interface with them and just understand their dev philosophy.
When they start charging for multiplayer, they really lose any justification for not stopping this kind of hacking in their online multiplayer games. The ranks and leaderboards being stored locally is boneheaded. Online games are ruined if cheating is not dealt with.
I think Nintendo’s halfhearted and hands-off approach to online has really crossed from amusingly naive to negligent and insulting, especially with paid online looming ahead
It’s kind of ironic since, typically, the complaint about Nintendo is they’re so obsessed with shutting down hacking that legitimate homebrew scenes get squashed in the process.
Not the Hero Splatoon wants, but the hero it needs.
The big thing that I took away from the movie was that it shows at a very personable level exactly the self-degradation that we put ourselves through in order to be a useful part of capitalism until we get to the point where we fall in over our head. When the movie switches gears and goes into full body horror is…
Great, great, great flick. I saw it at an Arclight in Hollywood with a big crowd of white people and you could audibly hear, multiple times, when a joke in the movie would turn. The crowd laughter would be hearty and full, then the movie would continue to push the joke further to the bigger nugget of truth behind it…
My wife and I saw this solely on the basis of everybody saying how good this movie was (and the very early premise that sounded fun) but holy shit I was not prepared for it.
I haven’t stopped thinking about this movie since I watched in Friday and your conversation is like talking to invisible friends about it.
I didn’t catch the Dongry reference, but I definitely thought of Gondry’s movies during that scene.
He’s not wrong about MGS2 either. That shit holds up.
Biederman is good people. He was part of a large group of folks I grew up with (maybe 17 years or so ago when we all first met) on the old GameSpy Forums. It was honestly one of those places where we would wind up discussing everything but actual video games, and you were judged by how funny, mean, and witty your…
Slightly OT, is this podcast any good? I’ve heard about it for a while, but the title seemed so exploitative for a bunch of white guys that I could never bring myself to listen to it.
Good job guys. You two need a buddy cop movie together as just yourselves. Bumbling through crime scenes, using your pop culture knowledge to try to decipher who the suspect could be. Then getting stonewalled because that’s not how investigating crime works. Would watch.
Nah I see what the guy is saying. I never got upset at villains on TV shows until Captain Cold came to my house and froze all my soup, but it was my own fault for watching The Flash and being a part of that community.
Yes, he does this to other people. It’s all in the article, that’s his “character.” However, the misogynist comments were unique to this situation. This scumbag is just a griefer hiding behind a bogus definition of roleplaying.
“I pissed at your door”? Not exactly a latter-day Sennacherib, I see....
Other players didn’t sign on to be the victims in this streamer’s roleplay. His excuses are hollow, and his stream is utterly without merit.
SGX reiterated this point numerous times: he’s just roleplaying, and the people who are criticizing him and reporting his channel are the real bullies and harassers.
