    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Ferno in part of me is a little weirdly pleased in an almost spiteful way that the Game Grumps   
    the PS2 version is the worst version of Heroes, but that statement somewhat implies there's a 'good' version of Heroes
     
     
    there is no good version of Heroes

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Blue Blood in https://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2020/06/23/ign-amy-hennig-naughty-dog-report/ So   
    Yes, but it's fairly irrelevant here. Like I said, this is a story about the abuse of power within video game journalism. You're using whataboutism to whine about Naughty Dog again. To be frank, it's idiotic. Nobody's just magically forgetting that these companies have shit working culture unless they want to, because again they've hinged their personality around batting for Playstation; but it's not the focus of what was posted here, and it doesn't have to be just because ND got so much as mentioned.
    Someone has bravely come forward about being abused within a publication; my response to that isn't "well that sucks, but this other company is also bad!!" It's "that's really bad and I hope there are consequences for their actions now it's come to light." It's that easy! Your response is effectively the former, immediately diverting attention from what they've done because you hate Naughty Dog (or CDPR or whoever) more than you care about the employee who suffered the abuse here.
    I hate these companies and their culture of crunch too! But this isn't the place to bring it up. You can "bring up multiple shitty things", but this isn't a good place to do that. The only tie here is that Naughty Dog got mentioned in the false story, but that's a fairly weak means of segwaying into "oh no, now that this person came forward about abuse I've got to listen to the Sony fanboys moaning again" or whatever.

    Your priority here is pretty clearly shitting on Naughty Dog. I get it, they suck. But your initial response to this should've been "damn, it sucks that the writer was used as a scapegoat by his abusive and manipulative peers" and left at that, rather than needing to dive back into the "b-but, Naughty Dog bad!!" whinging. 
    We know Naughty Dog's working conditions are shit. Anybody that doesn't at this point is just being wilfully ignorant, and increased coverage of the working conditions probably won't change that; they don't want to believe it because they've hinged their personality around going to bat for a video game system and its games. This is ignoring that, as I said, multiple sites did cover the crunch situation.
    Priorities.

    So what, the writer in question should've just stayed silent about his treatment by IGN's blatantly shitty top brass, so that you don't have to deal with Sony fanboys doing the kind of shit they'd do anyway? Give me a break. 
    Those problems do get covered in outlets, it's just the Sony fanboys also don't care.

    You did mention it, and then immediately glossed over it with a big diatribe about how bad Naughty Dog are. Again.

    I mean, it's more important to highlight the IGN editors' shitty, manipulative behaviour than it is to be concerned that you don't have more ammo to shit on Naughty Dog.
    ND have enough problems to justify hating them. We don't need to add falsehoods into the mix just to help that justification.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Supah Berry in Any last minute predictions for the Arms fighter in Smash? Me?   
    As I said in the topic; the folks that think every ARMS fighter is the same are the people who haven't played the game. It'd be really underselling the characters to pull a Hero; it'd be like adding say, Akuma from Street Fighter and just making him a straight clone of Ryu. Yeah, they're both shotos; but there's plenty of differences between the two.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from DiamondX in For anyone who played Fantasy Zone. How do you beat the third boss?   
    Typically I'll get up close and start dropping bombs on his laser launchers to whittle them down, and then switch to using my standard shot on the bottom few (though they can be hit with bombs using the right momentum).

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Faseeh in hot take: Jet Set Radio ain't fun. it's got a charming visual style, a fun OST... but   
    Even as a huge fan of the game itself; I get the impression the reason JSR is so bigged up by many folks is because they haven't actually played it. I've poured hours in so I've adjusted to it, but it's definitely not the nicest game to actually play.

    That'd be an awful lot of work when most people just want the TaxStealth ports on consoles. If they really must do a remake, I think there's more interesting choices to go with.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Supah Berry in So over the years, I heard a lot people saying Sonic Heroes sucks because of this, So   
    Well... no. They do suck ass. They're overly slippery and Sonic carries way too much momentum upon landing, so he just races forward instantly; usually into pits. The light dash is barely functional, either, and grind rail hopping is broken.
    It's a world away from how weighty and tight Adventure's controls felt. They weren't perfect either, but they were a damn sight better than Heroes. The Boost games control comparatively fine for the kind of games they are (or at least, Generations does; Unleashed is also pretty damn slippery)

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Supah Berry in I prefer to believe that Bean the Dynamite's power is not merely explosives, but in r   
    Bean can just outright teleport in Fighters and Megamix, so I suppose it's not too out there. 
    His parallel to the Kuku, unless that's just a comic thing... isn't something I'm aware of. So I'm not too arsed about keeping it. Everyone used bombs in that game, even Tails. His bomb use is a nod to the Dynamite Dux; Bin's his dad.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Sonictrainer in The whole "only male hedgehogs can go Super" explanation never made much sense to me.   
    Given they didn't stop them having Super Tails/Knuckles/Mighty/Ray in Mania I kinda figure it was just a PR answer that they don't pay much attention to rather than stone-cold lore
