Hey Fighting game enthusiasts, any of you ever played Blade Strangers? A 2D traditional fighter featuring indie characters (ex: Issac, Curly Brace, Quote, Azure Striker, Shovel Knight)? Just bought it for my Switch just today.

Something about that Iron Maiden game, Ion Fury, whatever the **** it is called now, someone brought up the concept that the forum has a nasty habit of going way too overboard about that shit. And Champ being Champ felt contributing the only way he knows how lol.

Apparently you're not allowed to highlight the fact that the forum has a nasty habit being unnecessary dicks. Because you know mocking some kid who said he is gonna kill himself, who admittedly is a bigot, and then proceeds to kill himself, doesn't teach you a lesson.

It's aight tho, I'll be back.

Minecraft's upcoming official RTX support is insanely pretty:

Polygons are nice and all but I'll happily take a hit on geometry in upcoming games if it means they can reproduce these kinds of effects at decent framerates. Stunning. Now just need a huge price cut on hardware.

From my experience most of the people complaining about are actively supporting it.

Obviously i'm not, and get full privilege to complain without a hint of hypocrisy. Which is great.

People on Neogaf (1) aren't any better either really. The owner was absalutely a Resetera mentalist until he was suddenly found out as a surprise shower sex goblin, and then all of a sudden he's backtracked and went all borderline alt-right. And instantly people thought he was now a kewl dude.

Silly really.

I'm not specifically referencing jg4xchamp or FireEmblem_Man in this post by the way.

Wouldn't really take offense, I don't go around bad mouthing them even here, other than them banning me for 2 weeks. I'm pretty much open about sharing my displeasure with thing or people, considering I said it on that forum. Otherwise I'm also open about I would rather that forum exist than otherwise.

Because at the end of the day, as inane as they can get, at the least they are getting inane over some admirable causes. I can deal with that level of stupid, less tolerable when it's the shit I've been reading since I got back, or the denizens of stupid you deal with on reddit, and you couldn't pay me to get a 4chan account, not the least of which is egad is trying to post n read that shit mad clunky.

I prefer an actual forum, one with activity, and one where I'll actually get something resembling a conversation if I post anything above 3 sentences, because otherwise "it's too much".

The scrub takes? Eh I get them here, in this lounge. Much less system wars as a whole. You ever see how bad these RPG dweebs will behave if you highlight to them that as a genre historically it offers little to no depth, any sort of strategic or tactical layers are the bare minimum that would be found in any game, and there is no real skill to get good at or learn as a player, other than being capable of shutting your brain off n putz around for "mah adventure". "it's actually strategic because"...bitch you are not playing Chess, you're playing tic tac toe, get the **** outta here.

Even Visions thread or Renegade Fury's thread, because contrary to this forums opinion, they are a lot closer to a sniper take than they realize, most people like the idea that they don't play shallow games. But they have no concept of what would actually be depth in a video game. With the same tried n true meme takes

>slow=tactics
>dark souls is about 1 v 1 combat
>there has never been a good escort mission hur durr
>Games are more than the sum of their parts, so its okay when they are trash at the defining characteristic of the medium
>button mashers
>You can just do x, so what if I died a 1000 times doing just x, i still beat the game didn't i?

Imma get that here, gaf 2, gaf 1, gaf 3, I can't believe it's not gaf 4, the gap, the works. Might as well go to an active one, ya digg?

So went back and played The Witcher: Enhanced Edtion and one thing that's really immersion breaking, that seems to be in all of them, you can just go into peoples house and take all their stuff while they are right there in front of you.

Because you can just hit ALT as well, it highlights everything, so unless you force yourself it never really feels like your exploring or being rewarded for it. Just a mundane action done.

-

Something Gothic does really well. Goes as far as to not give you a map early game so everything is a mystery that filters through with experience. And even when you get a map, it's in sections, so you can find yourself wandering off the map page itself giving a genuinely wonderful frontier feeling of uncharted territory.

Don't think ever seen a game so bad, and so good as the same time. One minute your shaking your head at the sheer awfulness the next your engrossed like a meth user desperate for another hit.

Could never use reddit or 4chan, the design is like something from 2001 Geocity days. Saying that this forum ain't exactly fairing better, it seems any update they put in, is almost purposefully designed o troll users.

Super excited for Episode 9 though.

@jg4xchamp: Naughty Dog games in general have shallow gameplay, but I don't mind that at all. Ironically, I seem to be very forgiving with gameplay if the story or overall experience is good (ex: I love so-called walking simulators). I don't doubt that gameplay is the distinguishing aspect of the medium and I definitely appreciate it when it's done very well, but it isn't the most important factor for me.

They seem to be doing better outside of their shitty trilogy. Disney also greenlit an Obi-Wan show... Good God, yes! There could be a lot to focus on, but i'd like to see the comic where OW protects Luke on Tatooine adapted in some form.

Indeed, we wanted streaming service to get away from money grubbing cable companies, now these big name studies are money grubbing on streaming services that it feels like I still need to keep cable.......

The colts are somehow actually worse than Greenbay at wasting generational talent at Quarterback. 19 of the last 21 seasons they have had Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck starting for them. They have 1 Superbowl to show for it and a Superbowl loss.
