“the more defined sense of an actual genre and style of video game”
Yes? What genre? What style? You seem to be saying a JRPG is the genre and style of a JRPG.
The second guy left out a lot of suspicious details, like what his ex did that didn’t count as cheating but still unnerved him. It comes across to me that he was incredibly needy and controlling, and let those feelings drive him further into a pit, and probably drove her away as well. I wasn’t surprised that she… Read more
“Just being from Japan or having anime inspired characters doesn’t make it a JRPG.”
I’m curious about what definition you are using for “JRPG,” if not an RPG from Japan.
That’s not how I’d describe them. Yakuza 0 tries to be explicitly ‘80s (specifically, Japanese seedy night life ‘80s), but it’s not “slice of life” so much it’s grounded in a very lived-in real world. No matter how ridiculous the story may get, the setting is intended to be unambiguously real-world Japan, and… Read more
No new Yakuza PC ports? Sad face.
Are you willing to give Kojima the benefit of the doubt, given his position on literally everything else?
This would require millennials to fuck up the economy/environment/entire planet in a similar fashion to what boomers have done.
I literally have never watched someone stream video games, so I’m not speaking in anyone’s defense here.
That said, it seems that the whole appeal is to watch someone live, ideally when you’re available to watch them. If they’re not available (and assuming you don’t know how long they’ll be unavailable), there are… Read more
Alphabetical order? Where we’re going, we don’t need alphabetical order.
Damn you, I’d forgotten about this mess.
This is true, but Phantom Pain was also developed during an era in which the average development time for games really started to exceed the 2-to-3-year cycle. So Death Stranding is kind of “average” in regard to how long it took in this day and age.
Yeah, they’re placed products. For better or worse, they’re there. So what?
You nailed it. Who the fuck ever heard of a convenient protest?
RBI Baseball for the NES is my favorite baseball game ever.
That was already the case before.
I mean . . .do you even know what solidarity means? Just because they’re owned by the same parent company doesn’t mean they’re involved with the former employees of Deadspin in any way.
“Why are you dedicating time to a game that isn’t in your top 10.”
To try other things. It’s not like humans are capable of enjoying no more than 10 things.
“How will you know it is still as good of a movie if you don’t watch it more than once?”
You don’t need to. This isn’t a requirement for anything in life. You can eat something once and love it. You can visit somewhere once and love it. This isn’t some revolutionary behavior.
What is also common is to not love something… Read more
