“Actually, I don’t. I just let the universal translator do its job.”
I think permadeath is also easier to accept when the game is relentlessly linear, like earlier Fire Emblem games. In PoR and RD, permadeath felt like a big part of a personalized narrative playthrough. Once Awakening added multiplayer, DLC, side quests, and the like, it was harder to shake the feeling that I would…
“When you docked, did you notice a sign on my starbase that said ‘Dead Klingon storage’?”
Kirk: Mmm. Goddamn, Bones. This is some serious gourmet shit. Usually, me and Spock would be happy with some freeze-dried Romulan ale, right? And he springs this serious gourmet shit on us. What flavor is this?
I think the ideal situation for permadeath is in a game that is not incredibly challenging. Too often permadeath is added to already difficult games. This kind of kills the fun of permadeath, because instead of being a relatively rare, but memorable, loss for a mental lapse, it becomes a thing that forces you to save…
Well, geese are assholes no matter what time of year it is.
I hear it’s a rip-off of Japan’s Cumba the White Loin
the problem is the analog stick modules are trash. the components on $80 controllers should not be treated as consumable items full stop.
Stop trying to spin a defective, premium product into something positive...
Meh. I did the full case mod with D pad, and I found that operating on the Joycon was much trickier than a DualShock or Xbox controller. Having the right screw driver is one thing (they’re cheap and magnetized), but those tri-wing screws being softer than over cooked pasta is another. It’s very easy to strip those…
This thing is so good, makes it so easy to catch a fly! The only downside is the nauseating smell of burned fly. :’(
Their next study will involve ants and a magnifying glass.
Spiders actually help take care of the actual disease carrying nuisances like mosquitoes and flies. It is in your best interest to save them too.
Just stay still and I will make it quick and painless.
I see the double tap rule is applicable once again.
I make sure it’s always 1 shot when I hit
Oh great, now PETA will launch another idiotic campaign with pictures of injured flies, next to a Chick-fil-A somewhere in NYC.
I didn’t realize I needed even more incentive to swat at flies, but here we are.
When I learned about this some time ago, it did make me think that we might be at the other extreme. Columbia’s explosion shut down our manned spaceflight missions for way, way too long. Letting the public panic over a thing people consented to do, knowing it was dangerous, is bad for science and exploration. We…
It’s all fun and games until Google suddenly and inexplicably drops support for the kid, like so many other Google products. 😏
