  1. All these people who have no idea who Terry Bogard is are making me feel like a nerd/decrepit old man.

      I tried to read up on Fatal Fury/KoF sales and I don't think the two series made much of a splash in the west, like, at all, so I'm not surprised.

      It's becoming clearer and clearer that Japanese gamers dictate the final outcome of the Smash ballot winners in this case. I bet Banjo will be the only break for the West, if only because he was the most popular Western rep there. I think it's best we lay hopes for anymore Western game reps to rest... for now.

      If you've been to an arcade with more than five cabinets, there was probably an MVS there. If there was an MVS there, there was probably a Fatal Fury installed.

  2. I don't usually call things "overrated" but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why there are so many people who want Conker to come back. Bad Fur Day's humor is something I would've laughed at when I was 12 and then never again.

      I think Conker was a product of it's time (and was outrageous on the principle of being unique, at least on the N64) and I'd like to assume that when people want more, they would want a game which would be a funny platformer by THIS generation's standards, not just more of the exact same thing. Honestly though, as someone who enjoyed it, I'd be fine with it remaining as a one-off title, and I certainly wish they would stop trying to brute-force the character into places he doesn't belong, trying to ignore what a crass game he originates from (well, not originates, but y'know, popularised him).

      I’d love to see someone like the writers behind Saints Row 4, tackle a Conker game. SR4 was fucking funny meta shit, and I can totally see them updating Conker is a reasonable fashion that can still maintain itself in the Conker universe while modernizing.

      People literally want every cartoon platformer mascot to come back regardless of whether its warranted

      @JezMM @KHCast I can see what you're both saying. Based on what I've read, though, there are a lot of people who seem to want more of the same, and I've always seen the "joke" of Conker as something that could only easily be done once. "Edgy-take-on-wholesome-children's-media" is so played out at this point, and I thought BFD was easily Rare's worst platformer from a gameplay perspective. The game industry is certainly ripe for parody, I guess I just don't find the character or the original game to be particularly funny. 

      @Wraith That's also true.

      .....worse then DK64?

      Actually scratch that. Devolver digital making a Conker game. I need that yesterday

      Gameplay-wise I feel Conker was a breath of fresh air in it's linearity compared to DK64 and B-T's gradual "Bigger is better!!!" mentality getting worse and worse when B-K got the scale just right.  Having said that it's very loose to control, and because the game switches up gameplay so much, seemingly being designed from the top down ("here's a joke/scene/parody we want to make, now how do we make gameplay out of it", rather than the other way round), no individual part of it feels particularly polished, pretty much every set-piece has some minor issues that you have to figure out how to work around before you'll find success (like distances between platforms, hitboxes on interacting with things/bosses etc).  Basically it's a pretty hard game, and it doesn't always seem to be intentionally so.

      I definitely respect their vision a lot more than B-T and DK64, which just seemed overly padded for the sake of padding.

  3. next smash fighter leaked

  5. Not judging anyone who likes Gaming Youtubers™ and it's fine if they're how you like to follow video game discussion, but I'm pretty tired of seeing people all over the goddamn internet expecting me to watch videos from channels like BillyBo10k or PapaGenos, or even GameXplain (who usually get a pass from me because they can go very in-depth) that could be anywhere between 5-45 minutes long, instead of citing their sources, which often amounts to ~30 seconds of reading.

      I mostly watch comedic gaming Youtubers, such as Caddicarus, AntDude, Dunkey.

      I'm mostly talking about the guys who are trying to be informative/report on rumors and news--- infotainment, essentially. 

    3. Jango

      Yeah, I don't care much for those, I rather read on some websites I follow instead.

      News channels just like to bait for clicks and pass for time. Not to mention they'll report any garbage rumor they come across to make a story out of and keep the lights on. No thanks.

       

      I always look for a text source.

      This has become a problem with online discussions in general. Nobody feels the need to explain their viewpoints or arguments when they can just link to a 45 minute long video that goes way too damn in-depth for its own good. Some people also seem to think that having their viewpoint outlined in a video somehow makes their opinion more valid than everyone else's, it's dumb.

  6. yooooo

    Best DQ game is getting a movie that actually looks kinda cool? The art is definitely a departure from Toriyama's 2D drawings but I'm hyped.

      Oh god damn I was gonna post this in like 3 minutes lol 

       

      I prefer the original artstyle more tbh 

  7. Smash is great but what's up with the online-exclusive challenges? I bought this game to play local multiplayer (which I will no doubt be dumping hundreds if not thousands of hours into) and I don't even have a Nintendo online account. Would I really have to subscribe and then play online regularly just to get all of the images/spirits? Because that is fucking stupid.

      Ahahaha this is gold 

  10. Sonic Islands is really neat, and a much better framework for an actual game than the Utopia demo from a while back, but I can't help but think it's a little bit unwieldy. Classic Sonic has always matched mechanical depth with very simple controls, while Islands manages to over-complicate things in its effort to use as few buttons as possible. I don't see why the homing attack has to share a button with a double jump, or why the spindash shouldn't just be mapped to a face button like the Adventure games. The same can be said about bouncing. 

    It's cool though. Interested in seeing how it develops.

  13. Spider-Man looked fantastic. RE2 looked good too but I'm waiting to see more. Ghost looked cool but not a lot to go on.

    Zero interest in The Last of Us. Conference itself was so far up its own ass that it hurt to watch. 

  14. haha sony what the fuck

  15. I beat Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon in one sitting last night. Took me an hour and a half. Come back online today and realize the game now has achievements and none of them are unlocked. 

    good shit
