  1. Should a remake of a game also change the writing?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Depends on the situation. The one case I say most often times yes is localisation. Especially for early games. Bad localisation can be the root cause of awful writing. 

    2. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      As long as it keeps the spirit of the original, then no problem.

    3. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      it's as open to being changed as anything else, i guess. if it cleans things up and works better while preserving the intent and positive aspects of the original, go for it.

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      It really depends.

      If its fine as is then ok. If it enhances the experience then go for it.

      Just please don't make lame changes like Twin Snakes did.

      Seriously they ruined the weak point line by changing it to weakness for some reason.

  2. while everyone was concerned about spider-man, the amazon forest was burning down, with potential significant changes to the environment as a result

      it helps that the govenment in control is pretty much encouraging it (fires/deforestation) and the massive amount of smoke its creating is being handwaved as smog from the cities (meanwhile people actually reporting what's actually happening are either being dismissed as "fake news" or are being blamed for the fires itself!) /s

      literally the brazilian govt now:

      It's been an ongoing thing for the entire year really. More fires have happened this year already than the entirety of last year. A lot of it seems to have to do with Bolsonaro's policies which lessen restrictions on deforestation I think.

      It's legitimately scary and sad that a lot of us are simply in the mindset of giving up at this point. We constantly make advancements in tech that can help prevent this but then you have governments actively worsening the situation for the sake of businesses while also having idiots like Trump talk down the issue of climate change. The large amount of other idiots on this planet follow and shout down anyone who actually has facts, evidence, and possible legitimate solutions.

      So we gonna ignore the fact that those are man made fires?

    5. Spin Attaxx

      @Strickerx5 tbh I'm kinda in that mindset myself at this stage. It's hard to find much joy in anything when a few people with more money and power than anyone else will see in their lives are screwing the planet and damn the consequences, that there are endless hordes of people who enable and celebrate this, and that we're dangerously approaching/at the point of no return where everything will become miserable even if we don't literally start dying off.

      And god forbid that in trying to recover what the dying old men stole from us, we end up becoming the old men who steal from the next generation, who themselves will screw over everyone after them because of that.

      Even escapism isn't doing much for me anymore when shit like Disney's ever-growing monopoly, the Spider-Man debacle, Nintendo takedowns on YouTube, and Article 13 are all making it harder to enjoy anything anymore.

      I keep getting into a very mentally bad spot. I think really dark thoughts.

      Ellipsis-Ultima

      I heard about this yesterday and I'm like how TF is the media NOT covering this.

      @Tails spin ...well that might explain the lack of media coverage.

  3. I’m going to see a movie tonight! It’s a limited time showing, so that’s something new for me...

    1. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      What movie? Just curious.

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      It’s a movie called ‘Weathering With You’.

      I’ve heard a lot of good things about it, so I wanted to see it! And there’s nothing else in theatres catching my interest for the moment, anyway.

  4. Honestly, no one wins with this Spider-Man situation.

      That old coot? Who even listen to his podcast anymore? All he ever does is bash Spider-Man for no reason.

      I mean, I’m all for a takedown of Disney, but come on. There had to be better ways of doing it.

  6. Anyone who dares to imply humans don’t see dogs and cats as anything more than mere pets, they can get stuffed. They clearly don’t know love, affection and empathy.

  7. Finished Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. That was fun!!

    While everything else was a surprise, I went through the final boss like

      you know what, same here

      Short but sweet, with really fun gameplay and varied enemy types that keep things interesting from start to finish.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      It is also the only Metal Gear I finished, as well as one of the few hack and slashes I really enjoy.

      I've tried to get into the other entries, at least the first game, but the gameplay has just aged horrifically IMO 

    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      It's really good but feels incomplete in a lot of ways. I wanted a sequel to really refine everything into Hack n slash perfection but it never came

  8. Yesterday’s day at work was fun. I had to help set up a microphone for a recording session, and in testing it, got all my co-workers singing along with me to I Want It That Way.

    And there was a piano in the recording studio. Some random employee came in, blasted the intro to Megalovania, and left. Then they came back shortly after and blasted Spider Dance, then left.

  9. Ay bed ced ded ed eff ged

    If you wouldn’t pronounce your ABCs like this, why do we say “zed” for Z? It’s dumb.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      I didn’t know “zed” was a thing until I took a trip to the UK a couple years go. Man I was so confused the first time I heard it XD

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Do they actually call DBZ "Dragon Ball Zed" over there, or does the "Zee" stick?

    3. Ferno

      Ferno

      sometimes i wonder if we americans changed zed to zee just so the song would rhyme at the end

      either way im used to zee and have said it all my life, but I'll admit that zed has this sorta imposing sound to it as it rolls off the tounge that gives off a feeling of finality and sorta fits

    4. Ernest the Panda
    5. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      To be honest, I find english pronounciations kinda dumb in general. 

      Here I find it more natural but it's also because we pronounce the words the same way we write them.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'll worry about the pronunciation of "z" in a nursery rhyme after everyone's learned pronounce "h" correctly.

    7. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      "W" makes no sense IMO.

      "Double u" despite it being two V's next to eachother: VV.

      But you guys mostly pronounce it like "u" in words so I guess it works. Here we just say "v".

       

    8. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      That derives from Latin, where "V"s were used instead of "U"s in the alphabet yet they were read as "U"s.

    9. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @Ernest the Panda Speak for yourself. I like to call it Dragon Ball Zed.

      Also, considering berk is a vulgar slang term here, How To Train Your Dragon sounded like a very different movie to me.

  10. I Want It That Way is secretly everyone’s jam.

  11. Okay, Jet Set Radio, I get that you're happy that you represented Shibuya... But did you REAAALLLLY need to force a camera perspective to show off the Crossing?

    It's so disorienting to go from free camera to a forced perspective.

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      I mean all the forced camera spots make use of 2D pre-rendered backgrounds don't they? Was probably no way around it since the decision to pre-render that area would've probably been due to some kind of limitation on memory or map size/detail etc.

  12. Oh, and Australia's classification board is a joke too. DayZ refused classification and banned from sale because of marijuana, of which HASN'T ACTUALLY BEEN IMPLEMENTED INTO THE GAME, but just sits in the game files. Nevermind the fact that it would have been R18+ regardless, meaning only adults should have the game, but they treat it as if children would play too.

    I live in a nanny state.

    1. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      This is the same policy for the West for content on the sale of copy even if it's not accessible to the end user.

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Kinda ridiculous, but if that's how it is...

      Reading into it, if drugs in a game give a negative effect to the player, it's okay. If they give a positive effect, like replenishing health, no way. Same thing happened to Fallout 3, when Med-X had it's name changed to Morphine, only to have it changed back when Australia went against the implications.

    3. Red

      Red

      Australia banned the game "We Happy Few" for similar reasons. The devs had to "censor" the game to make it suitable for Australian sale.

  13. American media is actually buying into the “video games cause violence” spiel?

    I’m at my goddamn limit. The country is a joke to everyone else in the world.

    1. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      I agree this whole Video games cause Violence spiel is an outdated argument

      yet this argument is used every time there's a tragedy

      to hand wave the issue away

      because why tackle the real issues and cause of said tragedy

      when we have a scapegoat and that scapegoat is video games

      even though there are studies that prove the contrary

      so why blame Video games?

      simple its so the media has a dragon to slay of course

       

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Honestly, it's the same damn group as always. We just got two mass shootings so they're all on damage control and deflecting from the actual issue. It'll all sadly blow over, again, until the next mass shooting happens.

      We are a bad joke. Always have been, and probably always will be. Most of us here are sick of this shit too.

    3. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      exactly

      this whole "Video Games cause Violence" argument needs to be put to rest for good

      what this is can be summed up as another Moral Panic

      instead of actually trying to look into the issue

      they come out and say "he played Violent Video Games that's why he did it" because why bother actually trying to investigate the motive when there's a scapegoat

       

      i'm sorry i'm really sick and tired of this whole "Video Games cause Violence" crap

    4. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      As long as our country fetishes weapons and violence, and uses deliberate scapegoats like this that the ratings hungry media will willingly leap on to avoid the truth, we're not going anywhere.

    5. Badnik Zero

      Badnik Zero

      Isolation and extremism cause these incidents, and access to weapons. Gun proponents like to say that a good guy with a gun can stop a rampage. Maybe true, but the shooter in Ohio was killed after 30 seconds. Firepower that can kill nine people in 30 seconds is not the same as being able to purchase a pistol.

  14. That livestream was pleasant, so much Sonic love going around~

  15. “We’ll have an army of gamers, and we’ll take over the world!”

      Ryannumber1gamer

      An army of five year olds on COD ain't gonna take over a pre-school let alone take over the world

  16. If only there were a way to tear up large corporations. They are infecting the world by destroying it little by little, all in the pursuit of money, not that they care that the world will die.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Unfortunately, all you can do is ignore them and wait for them to destroy themselves. Don't give them your time and money, then eventually they'll fall on the sword of karma.

      The conspiracy theorist in me can't help but think they're gonna try to run away from the world and get away with their crimes. Maybe use Elon Musk's Space vehicle thing once it's fully ready in the next decade or so to create an escape ship and load it with the wealthy elite, while leaving everyone else to die.

      Or I've just been watching too much 2012 (the film).

      Wild toxic internet culture?

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Insults thrown left and right, the lawless anonymous nature of the internet allowing people to do and say whatever, and so on.

      Board went down for an update.

  22. excUUUUUUUSE me, searching ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ on Google brings all movie stuff first instead now. Even the infobar on the side, with the cute Sonic easter egg, is gone and replaced with information on the movie.

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      That sucks. What a way for people curious about the franchise to be introduced to it. I'm not even talking about the quality in this case, but more so how it barely relates at all to the source material, and Google cutting it out just seems unfair to those who want to research it and see if it's something they want to partake of.

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      That’s the part that hurts the most for me. Sonic the Hedgehog is, first and foremost, a video game franchise. So the search results should reasonably be about the video game franchise. Now the first result relating to the games is several results down, and the image gallery on a search brings only one picture of the original Sonic before you have to start scrolling down.

      The movie does not in any way represent the franchise... This is not the way I’d introduce someone!

    3. Marcello

    4. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      It almost seems like Google is biased or something...

      I use bing to search and the official Sonic website was the first result.

    5. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      If you look up Sonic the Hedgehog game the easter egg shows up

    6. Ferno

      Ferno

      Sorta makes sense since thats the Sonic-related thing that took over the news lately even in normie circles which only fed into google's search algorithm even more, and nothing else sonic related is coming anytime soon besides the movie unless you count the olympic games.

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I haven't watched the anime. I've only been recommended the book because I was into My Hero Academia.

      Was talking with someone online about manga that we collect, and they asked me, "Do you read The Promised Neverland?" I hadn't heard of it, but I said I will read it. And boy, I don't regret reading it one bit.

    3. TCB

      TCB

      Good, good...the next few volumes are gonna be a trip . 

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Yeah, I'd actually been seeing TCB talk about it for a few months and I caught the tail end of the season on Toonami and was hooked enough to start over. Even knowing how the season ended I loved watching all the twists in the earlier episodes and getting into the character dynamics. There was really no tension lost. How far along is the volume you finished? I'm thinking of just picking up where I left off.

       

      edit: lol speak of the devil

    5. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Looking at the synopsis of the last episode in the season, Vol.5 has the last episode, and continues from there.

      The manga also has fun side-stories (such as one in vol.5 where Isabella attempts to cut Emma's one floating strand of hair, to find it sentient and dodging every attempt), and pages that were cut from the original story.
