    @xnshd: There were over a million PS4s sold at launch in 2013, and 4 million sold by the end of that year. 1,000 consoles is a rounding error. This is not why we can't get one.

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post What Does This Zelda: BOTW Expert Think Of Genshin Impact?.

    @rekonym: I'm on the other side. I loved the exploration. I always had a list of a dozen things I was curious about and wanted to go check out. I understand why the shrines were controversial but I li...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered Reportedly Coming Next Year.

    @CrouchingWeasel: The ending decision is disappointing, but so far from the only thing that mattered. Do the Quarians and Geth learn to live in harmony? Is the genophage cured? Who's alive, who's de...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Black Widow Delayed, There Will be No MCU Movies In 2020.

    @zerojuice: I dunno, I think you could expand "power" to mean "augmentation." Hawkeye to me is the only other MCU character in the same bucket. I think the director's directionally accurate with her p...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Black Widow Delayed, There Will be No MCU Movies In 2020.

    @greek5: Yeah. Some day we'll get to the point where a woman starring in a superhero movie is no longer viewed as a statement, and no longer upsets the people who are annoyed by that statement (real o...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Xbox Is Primed To Reclaim Its Identity As A Console For RPGs.

    @mwewerka: I saw lots of scorn heaped upon Fallout 76, but I really don't recall seeing the pervasive "Bethesda sucks now" sentiment you are talking about. I'm sure there was the segment of gamerdom w...

    @bat725: Isn't FF considered a JRPG?

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post The Batman's First Trailer Has A Crush On The Riddler.

    @jcwainc: This is probably one of the biggest problems in our society today. There's a stunning number of people that want unhappiness for others...and are proud of it. When you step back and look at ...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post The Batman's First Trailer Has A Crush On The Riddler.

    I was only slightly following this, and I have to say the trailer looks great. I'll give Pattinson a chance. And I didn't know Jeffrey Wright was Gordon until now - awesome choice, I'll pretty much se...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Ubisoft Fires Ex-Assassin's Creed Valhalla Boss Ashraf Ismail.

    @uninspiredcup: I haven't seen anybody say this is about consent. If he was just whoring around on his own time, I'd agree with you. It sounds like the guy was using his position and the company's rep...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Ubisoft Fires Ex-Assassin's Creed Valhalla Boss Ashraf Ismail.

    @xnshd: Companies don't fire people without having a clearcut case. If you can, you let them resign, or you gently push them out in a few months, give them a severance, etc. When a company fires some...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post How Nintendo’s Greatest Failure Led To The Switch.

    @subsided94: I don't have much knowledge of how Nintendo specifically advertises to children, and marketing is certainly a fine line, especially with kids. But I don't see it as inherently evil to cre...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post How Nintendo’s Greatest Failure Led To The Switch.

    @subsided94: I guess you could call it greed, I'd just call it a coherent strategy. Nintendo has consciously chosen not to fight on specs, and is carving out a different segment. I don't know enough a...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post The Last Of Us 2's Neil Druckmann Had Message For His Team About "Haters".

    @Theinfmustroll: I don't think everyone who criticizes Naughty Dog or the game is a bigot (parts of the game are pretty tedious), but the ones foaming at the mouth that some underrepresented voices ge...

    @Lach0121: I am a fellow word nerd, so I appreciate your thoughts. There was a time when what you say was true, but that ship has sailed. I quoted a dictionary definition. Here are a couple of others:...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Remember When PS3 Almost Lost The Console Race.

    Sony wanted to win the blu-ray format war so they forced PlayStation fans to pay them for the privilege of helping. I am agnostic on the console wars but I always thought Sony really sucked for abusin...

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Half-Life 3's Original Pitch Was For A Procedurally-Generated Rogue-Lite.

    @Ultramarinus: Alternate take: they saw a blank canvas in a new technology and decided to see what they could do with it. I don't own the game or VR hardware, but I can support their experimentation.

  • megagood2345 posted a message on the post Gone With The Wind Returns To HBO Max With Context, Disclaimer.

    There's a time when I would've thought forget the disclaimer, it's just a movie. But given that there's a segment of people who downplay how absolutely awful enslavement was, it seems fair to fight th...
