TPC and GameFreak are better than this. It continues to feel like the games have gotten more and more linear, brain-dead, and handholdy (Galarian Hau (I MEAN HOP), can you shut up for like, 10-15 minutes instead of 2 so peeps can actually PLAY the game?) with each passing generation, and corners continue to be cut to

Man I wish I’d had one of these like 5 years ago when I was going to my local Melee tourneys like weekly. My hands stiff up a LOT, especially when it’s too cold. And boy howdy does Utah get cold. Read more

Neat. My friends and I have done so our entire lives. :P

I just wish the game sucked less. Is it really that unrealistic to expect more from a 90 billion dollar franchise? The fact that this game will almost assuredly still sell millions of copies is the most depressing part. Half-brained fans will gobble this crap up and just accept mediocrity, when it could be SO MUCH

Not gonna lie, fam, it’s because the more of the game we actually see (and can thanks to leakers) the more the writing on the wall becomes more and more apparent: the game is going to be bland, palatable, regurgitated “blah.” It’s as “fun” as the last 2.5 games they’ve released, which have all basically been

While I enjoyed the D4 cinematic and the prospect of true PVE in Overwatch, and the Shadowlands themselves are pretty darn gorgeous looking... this was by FAR the best announcement from the whole of BlizzCon as far as I’m concerned. I’m a nutso alt-o-holic, with a whole server strictly dedicated to having the fewest Read more

Yep, just some basic quarter-circle motions, really. The most complicated it gets is 2146 (QC back->forward), or the dreaded Double 236 (QC Forward).

so what about the semantics is the problem exactly? Expansion sequel, whatever. It’s a huge burst of content and systemic changes that have cost them lots of man-hours and dev-time and thus needs to be sold as a standalone product. Read more

Heh. Seems Sakurai was onto something with SumaBura all those years ago. He had the idea for it when he bodied some kid at KoF in the arcades, someone who didn’t even remotely stand a chance because the game was just too darned complicated to be good at “quick enough” in an infrequent-visit-to-an-arcade kind of Read more

Regardless of some certain decisions, game-design related or completely PR centric on a corporate level... even in the face of countless degrees of drama and nonsense, it’s really easy to tell that the developers that ARE still left at Blizzard definitely still care very greatly for the games they’ve been given Read more

Man, like Max said this morning, the biggest takeaway I got from watching Sakurai actually spend the full 45 minutes (give or take like 5 lol) talking about basically just Terry ... Sakurai loves Fighting Games, especially King of Fighters and these SNK games. I don’t remember where I read it, but I thought I heard Read more

More successful, sure, especially from a designer’s perspective. Having so much representation from such a huge roster finding success at the upper tiers? Brilliant.

lol. I know “AI” can kinda be a scawy term, but really, it literally can’t do anything it wasn’t exPLICITLY designed to do by the programmers. All this pile of scripts and code can do is be really good at playing a video game, that’s it. Read more

Wow, am I so super glad I waited to get Ni-Oh. I literally almost impulse-bought it last week when I saw it was one of the PlayStation Hits for just $20. But now I think I’ll snag it for free! Sweet!

So I haven’t really gotten *super* into this just yet because of a weird issue I have... Am I alone in hating Same Face Syndrome?

Big fat same! Like, across the board haha. First seasonal I’ve finished, got all the pulls, etc.! I just finished Mym’s adventure story last night. I was totally expecting some really goofy fan-servicey thing but instead I got a plate full of sincerity and feels I was not prepared for. Read more

That kinda blows. :/ But... as bitter of a pill as it is... I can’t say I could blame ‘em. The game is fun, and they didn’t want to stop. I don’t know if I’d have been able to stop either.  Read more
