  1. lol what was the point of JK Rowling retroactively claiming half of the cast in the Harry Potter books were gay if she's just going to say transphobic things anyway?

      Karen is angry that people aren't caring about her as much as important issues going on right now

  3. I didn't know that rom links are banned until now, so I had to change my subject about if anyone knew the REV0 of Spinball. or if anyone talks about it.

    I know I can do better...

      It's not a big deal so don't worry about it. Just something to keep in mind for the future.

  4. itch.io is doing a game bundle in support of BLM. Pay what you want starting at $5. Has a lot of good gems in it like Oneshot, Oxenfree, Night in the Woods, and A Short Hike.

    Also there's over 740 games.

      Looks like the offending game is gone (not sure if there are any others, I haven't seen anyone mentioning them) so it should be good to buy now.

      Games aren't added to your library until you choose to download them, and checking Leaf's replies he's already looking into removing them so I wouldn't worry about it.

  6. I haven't been here in a long time, but I've been getting back into Sonic a bit recently and I have a question. Two games I've never played are Sonic 06 and Sonic Unleashed. I definitely remember all the dislike for 06, but would it be worth trying anyway? How about Unleashed?

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Sonic 06 on consoles is bad so no I don't think it's worth checking out. But someone by the name of ChaosX is working on a PC port (via Unity) and it is some real impressive stuff from what they've shown of it. It also controls MUCH better and brings out how fun Sonic's levels can be underneath the jank. They post development on Twitter and there's even a demo: https://twitter.com/ChaosX2006

      Unleashed is a mixed bag. I love it but it has a lot of things that weigh it down and hold back its accessibility for most people who play it. It's definitely worth a play to see what you think of it though.

    Welp Skullgirls is fucked!

      Sean

      Reading the apology, it seems like he means it. Based on what I know about Skullgirls' development, it's bizarre hearing him spout a horrible insensitive joke such as this, so I'm willing to believe he's not a bad person. Absolutely do not blame anyone choosing not to support him or the game after this though.

      I liked it more than Origins even though I get why people think Origins is the better game.

  10. Bioshock Infinite desperately needs a no-story mode

    1. Sean

      Sean

      The story is bad and its racism themes are some of the worst-handled I have ever seen in a video game

      but the gameplay is like a solid 6/10.

      Mirror's Edge when it's not being an atrocious brawler/shooter.

  12. I was expecting to love Thousand Year Door and hate Harmony of Dissonance, and it turns out I was wrong on both counts.

    1. Sean

      Sean

      I never saw the backtracking as any worse than other RPGs that involve any amount of backtracking. The Vivian chapter gets a little silly about it but it never felt like a problem to me the rest of the game.

  13. Microsoft's BLM statements are some of the only ones I've seen worth a damn as far as companies go. Using the company to promote individuals' viewpoints is a great idea I hadn't thought of before.

     

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah that one's good too. In general I like hearing about a company taking action as opposed to posting some blanket statement on social media. Humble is also doing a $1mil fund for black indie game developers, which is great since donations are kind of their thing in general. None of the standardized statements ever bother me (unless it's fucking ActiBlizz we're talking about) but they're just 'nice' and I don't think much of them.

      As far as these standardized responses go I only care about the part where they donated money.

    It's the first time I've seen LEGO get political, I'm shocked in a positive way.

      Knock it off @KHCast. Lately you've been doing the exact shit we banned you for in the first place so if you can't stop yourself from getting mad over every insignificant thing I recommend you take a break from the forums until you cool your jets.

  16. why do i lurk resetera when i’m bored

    1. Sean

      Sean

      I don't have an account at Era but its gaming forum (I try to stay away from Etcetera) is the most efficient means for me to learn about general gaming news from all corners without having to check dedicated websites for PC/Nintendo/Sony/etc. It's also a good way for me to discover games, usually indie or retro ones, that people signal boost that I otherwise wouldn't have heard of. Just don't get so invested in what you read in certain threads that it upsets you so much and eats at you. Speaking from experience.

  17. 4 games in each version 50 dollars this is actually the worst thing sega has ever done I AM FUCKING HORRIFIED THIS IS BEYOND HORRIBLE

  18. So is it safe for me to say that the Shantae series  isn't as big as many people make out to be especially compared to other indie games? Like there's a cult following and a vocal fanbase but not on the same level as Shovel Knight, Undertale, Cuphead etc have had. 

    1. Sean

      Sean

      I'm not seeing what the issue here is. Most indie games aren't as popular as the ones you mentioned.

  19. I can't believe that The Completionist has finally been cancelled by Era.

    1. Sean

      This particular instance gets really under my skin, because Jirard has put his money where his mouth is more consistently than any other YTer I know of, donating to charities every year and being very vocally supportive of BLM despite his family's gas station being burned down during the protests, which he acknowledged is not as important as the protests but is still a painful event for him and his family. He's not just a stand-up decent guy, he's better than most.

  20. I purchased Sonic Heroes PC (from Amazon). I managed to get the game working with the help of the 16:9 widescreen patch, but I can't seem to get a controller to work.

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Oh right. I didn't have a problem getting  my controller working with Heroes because I used Sonic Heroes Settings and not the widescreen hack, since the former also supports 16:9 and even 4K. Settings is configured for Xinput, so if that's the kind of controller you're using it should work out of the box.

      I think Heroes typically only reads DirectInput. PCGW has some solutions you can try out.

  22. So I've been in a classic Silent Hill mood lately and my only option right now is the HD collection. 

    I've heard horrors about it, but is it THAT bad or is it stuff that only fans would... Er... "Care" about?

  23. FF7R’s OST is out, and we’re still waiting for KH3’s digital soundtrack release. What gives???

      Didn't every major KH game before 3 get an official soundtrack? I don't get that.
