Midway Games sold Cruzin to the Jews Anonymous 09/21/2017 (Thu) 23:11:46 [Preview] No. 11231 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Ok so I tried Cruzin Blast, the new arcade game in the Cruzing USA and Cruzin World series licensed by a new company because the original developer, Midway, quit.

My biggest gripe is there is no brake. Etc? I'm used to swerving around Initial d style l, and it feels super casual when the only thing you do is hold the accelerator down aside feom hitting the rocket blast button to use your 3-4 rockets once each to accelerate in the match. It felt casual as fuck.

Worse yet, there are only 5 short levels and ahen I got first place I didn't even get a free continue like in older games in the series. At least I enjoyed the scripted events and the exaggerated physics, which is a lot of the appeal of this series...the T-rexes in Madagascar, and F-18s in Death Valley were fun to look at.

But this franchise has turned disappointingly Jewish. It felt too easy to win, and the levels ended too fast per dollar. I am not at all interested in replaying any of the levels I played.

How the fuck is this game worth $9000?
I don't even see how an arcade couple recuperate on that investment. It would take years to break even, by which time the game would be obsolete?

The Croc game series was developed by the previously dissolved Argonaut, the company comparable to Rareware who desigend the FX chip that basically made the original Star Fox even possible. Nowadays the IP is allegedly owned by Argonaut CEO Jez San, brass at Funfair Technologies and Ninja Theory, both to their own right very new tech oriented companies but haven't made very notable splashes in the software market.

I don't have a point to make about it.

Who thinks this drama was written as part of a marketing campaign to make you buy FFXIV? I mean, the j drama about a guy who plays that game with his father, but daddy doesn't know it's him because he plays as a girl and hides his ID. I'm not buying the bullshit that this drama is based on a true story.

I was hoping the father would start hitting on his son.
They missed the opportunity for jokes about him cheating on his wife and committing virtual incest.

I enjoy the organic writing of video games, employed heavily by Dark Souls and, surprisingly, Nintendo games. Stories that are reflective of reality in which they were created, but not metanarratives in a deliberate and ham-fisted way. It does have a fault at being susceptible to LOST style mysteryboxing and seeing what sticks out of the shit being thrown at a wall, as well as the following GAYYYMTHEORizing, but that's only in the case when an individual writer does cut some corners, not the fault of what the potential of the medium is to begin with.

will it just push edgy fan art into an entirely new threshold or is it cyclical like when digimon evolve too fast or something and they revert to there baby forms?

Depends on Sega's marketing direction. It used to be super saiyans and now its Griffith wearing a Berserker armor, so that pattern would place it in the line of copying JoJo's Bizarre Adventure in Japan.

The western fanart will revert into Undertale and Stephen Universe.

>Q: What is the nature of this extremely powerful villain Infinite?
>A: Iizuka: He was not always evil, but unlike Chaos, Infinite was not born by mutation, he’s animal character like Sonic’s team. The reason why he becomes powerful and why he becomes evil… you’ll get your answer in Shadow’s free DLC.

What a weird thing to be revealed in, a side character's DLC. I always thought Shadow was probably inspired by Mighty the Armadillo but changed for promotional reasons, so maybe this is a similar thing where Infinite is some kind of a marketing surrogate to another character but made into an explicit part of the cast. Mighty exists because sonic was removed from Chaotix so as to not overshadow Knuckles, so I thought Sonic Adventure was about Mighty returning in its creative stage but changed to remove the baggage of using a previous character.

Touhou 16 hidden star in four seasons

never played a touhou before. It's pretty fun but easy mode is pretty deceptive. It's funny, I've seen fan art for touhous forever and it's almost always been really high quality, great drawings, then I'm playing this and the girls pictures pop up and they're retarded looking in comparison.

Best Touhou was that 2 player multiplayer competition one about 8 years ago.

My opinion for Sonic Mania is that's it's too easy, live friendly and beautiful. Cooplay best.

AM2R, haven't gotten to NG+ yet, will tell what's good or not. The game is amazing regardless, true homage to series. Must play inho.

I never like the cartoony look of the LoL videos/animations; wish they would just put the money they blow on marketing and esports into making new characters. There should be a new character every two weeks.

I guess no one else plays it. But if you do what do you think of the current star guardians event mode? The beginning is a little boring but the final boss is kind of fun because you can dodge behind buildings; it's the first time Riot has ever made a PVE that actually felt challenging.

I used to play dota 2 a lot but it got weird when they introduced ranked play I guess. when I first started pubs were pubs, try hard or don't, maybe someone does some super sick shit, maybe everybody sucks. Ranked made pubs just shit fests to test things out, and ranked became this ultra try-hard place and always got me way worked up because I wanted to get better and not play with shitters. It's the only game I can think of where I got worse at it as time went on.

I never got into Dota. My friends played Lol so I did that, and I never saw anything hood enough that would make me want to switch. The 3D warcraft-esque graphics were a turn off and it always looked slower. Lol uses a lot more skill shots while dota focuses more on buffs, and I find dodging spells more exciting.

Anonymous 09/14/2017 (Thu) 22:38:32 [Preview] No. 11198 del
And yeah, LoL is the same way. The matches are actually more memorable before you get to ranked because of the conversations, trolling and greater general creativity.

Most people take the game way too seriously later on and the game and norms get really rigid. As soon as I find a multi-player game that I like better I thibk I will leave Lol behind.

I can't be the only one that's bothered by literal children playing video games intended for mature audiences. Especially when it's a story heavy game, it's almost insulting to the developers because the children playing are likely too stupid to comprehend the story. Take Hotline Miami for example. This fantastic game with an intriguing story is saturated with a community of morons (many of whom are children younger than fourteen, believe it or not) who post furry-tier trash like pic related. There's also the old tried and true example of Call of Duty. The classic world war two fps overtaken by spoiled young children with virtual bloodlust and short attention spans.

Children ruin literally every piece of media they touch.

plenty of studies done on traumatizing children with certain themes not suitable for their developmental growth, which ESRB, PEGI, CERO, etc. do not take into account. Caveat parentis. Recall who heeded the creation of these organizations, not what affects specific media invoke on children.

A book can be just as stigmatizing as movie, music, and video game: mutual exclusives. Adults can just be as affected consuming media their psyche cannot handle, it really depends on the maturity of the individual. Regardless, being traumatized by lived experiences occurs many times more than media. E.g Person witness another being killed by another human, animal, or accident. Etc..

I see more cases of kids bullying each other (teachers too) which adversely affect children more than what video games can instill; which the science suggest little affects overall. Raising a child seems to be the most significant component on how a child will grow, even if they play morbid games.
E.g. Parent that teaching their children about violent gruesome games (co-play or not) vs abused children by parents coping by playing violent gruesome games.

I'm not a puritanical conservative but I think I will limit my kid's time with individualistic video games until he is older. I would rather encourage him to meet people, or at least play multi-player games with people in the same room.

Otherwise he might end up with aDHD/autism/less empathty + sociopathic tendencies

This goes for TV too. I'd rather my kid read good books and stimulate his mind, and be happy with the real world, than to be exposes mainly to time wasters, and have to watch crappy escapism stories to survive psychologically.

We need a game with new age themes Anonymous 09/14/2017 (Thu) 22:23:21 [Preview] No. 11194 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So the new age people who collect healing stones (just rocks and gems).....do they think they're playing a RPG? I mean they seem to think certain stones will protect them from debuffs like cancer, poison, or bad energies that would power down their attack points.

Sounds like a great idea for a video game...picture yourself walking around Portland, Oregon fighting antifa, angry heavy metal fans, anarchist punks, Wiccans, and methheads on skateboards. Later you must collect the special rings from conservative sororities to unlock the seal on the dean's heart and free Evergreen University from liberal tyranny.

There could even be a level where you have to escort RICHARD DAWKINS past crazy liberals and Muslims into the heart of irrational America: Berkley. In his radiant presence all of the magical rings lose their effect.

This will never happen because it's inconvenient for each company's own proprietary DRM, but I wish game collecting turned into buying a chip that contains space for the data, plus an universal, cartridge-specific license to download the game from any cooperating hardware manufacturer's own internet store.

This could happen if a single company became like reverse Nintendo: establish their own cartridge format without even having your own console for it. Imagine if Limited Run Games started manufacturing a cartridge and a card reader that works on PC, and console manufacturers were convinced to support indies by including a port for that card reader.

>So, i guess thats it.
I'm baffled how you can take this whole concept entirely from a self-obsessed point of view, and only over things I specifically spell out for you. Obviously the same technology would apply to any game that's not 90% bloated with visual effects, I just mentioned that the commercial path to this becoming a reality could start with indie titles, because the demand for physical releases of indie titles has proven to be there.

In it's bare simplicity I just want basically the same data saving solution that we currently have for digitally bought games, but with the SD card housed in an external shell that works just like a game boy game. Added to that there should be the ability to use that same memory space regardless of what console you have since it's all just different data builds of the same software, and since we're buying physical why not also have a dedicated memory card for every single game that can be predownloaded and ready to start on the way from the store. Then you can just convert it into different console version if need be by using that console's eShop as a server backup.

The shelling process is just there as opposed to simply having swap ready SD cards for every console because there needs to be a commercial proprietor that can guarantee the game devs an install base, and to develop the solution that can utilize a universal format for the game saves and download rights that should work on any build of the game. The formula has already been shown to work by consoles existing in the first place.

>plus an universal, cartridge-specific license to download the game from any cooperating hardware manufacturer's own internet store.

DRM is AIDs and cancer, it's anticonsumer in the long run since game collecting is not possible due to Publishers shutting down services for old games. It's anticonsumer in the short run since Publishers are known to put in "limited install" parameters to their DRM or "always online" faggotry. Or like some of the WORST publishers such as EA, Acti, UBi have shown they abuse DRM to cut out features or controversial content via patches. Modern DRM will always be shit due to Publishers abusing it, or abandoning infrastructure plus services for old games.

Right now I have MULTIPLE old games such as Delta Force, Rainbow Six Raven Shield, Army Men 1,2, Toys in Space, Deus Ex, System Shock 2 and all of them work right out of the box. There's no need for me to login to some sort of E-Store service to download a patch, no need for updates. All I have to do is pop in the disc and if asked for a CD key I can just plop it inside.

Patching these games is also OPTIONAL since these games were released before releasing bug ridden messes that get fixed via patching using shitty E-Store services was a thing. Fuck Valve, fuck Nintendo, fuck Ubi, fuck most of the modern gaming industry, and fuck you OP for being underagedb& or a fucking sheep.

Well, enjoy your microshaft PC or depending on linux commies because your consumership is worth nothing. More living industry for the rest of us who want more than 10 games during our lifetime. That's the attitude that created those games to begin with, but I guess you were only pretending to having been born at that time.

Here's what those really are: store bought eShop credit for one game. And you get a collectible repro box as a small incentive.
