All of this combined would not even equal the price of one neo geo game.

Makes sense to me. Back then, handhelds with ink behind the screen were the standard.

This game was pretty much your only portable option south of a hundred dollars.

Bonk's Adventure was the best game of the late 1980s - early 1990s.
:goodjob:

Personally, I prefer Bonk's Revenge. Little dude was the unsung hero of the TG16.

Quote from: Video Uploader
Dean: I've watched the comments on this thread just to see how mean they would be. I think it's useful to show my gameplay experience. I did not intentionally play poorly to "troll" anyone. But it serves as an interesting social experiment. I walk into a game cold, and this is the play that results. The video shows it's a notch more difficult than your typical Mario game. In fact, if you are expecting Mario, as the story says, then you are thrown off. And it shows that the developers are going to leave a lot of people who are worse than me behind. Maybe they're fine with that. Maybe they want to target gamers with a love for difficult games. That's fine. But I think they should signal that. How many games actually come with a tutorial these days? They're not popular. But if it's necessary, that is a signal this is going to require some skill.  As for other comments on this thread, I wonder why they are hostile to someone who is viewing the game as a beginner? Are we that intolerant of people who are not "gamers"? Should I have played the scene over and over again until I was good at it, and then turned the recording on, like so many of those perfect video walkthroughs you see? I believe that games can be made accessible and inviting to people who are not hardcore fans, and these people can be accommodated inside the same game that is appealing to hardcore fans, through difficulty levels. So when people tell me that I shouldn't be playing this game because, on my first play, I was pretty lousy  -- that's an attitude that argues that games should be shut off in their own little corner, only played publicly by the masters and the experts. I disagree with that view entirely, and I believe it leads to elitist attitudes that allow gamers to look down on other people, and that only leads to a more fragmented world of haters.

I imagine you can clear the first level of the game blind by holding right and holding down the shoot button, jumping to avoid enemies. Reminds me when games journalism did their very first "IS GAME DIFFICULTY NOT GOOD???" articles like 7 years ago with Arkham Asylum and the games "journalist" complained that fighting the first boss, Bane, was too hard.

for reference to defeat Bane you throw batarangs at him when he charges. that's it, you might have to beat up some mooks and hit dodge roll occasionally

This is the funniest thing I've read in a long time. 

Venezuelan players are playing the MMO Runescape to earn a living because lol socialism, and apparently people on reddit are forming groups to troll them.  In response, SJWs are mad at the redditors for oppressing people who need to play vidya to feed their families.

This is awful. How is this such a popular and well-received thread on their subreddit? They're deliberately targeting people who are Venezuelan and killing them with the knowledge that they're hurting their real money income in a recession. Unbelievable.

Quote
How do you even get pleasure out of knowingly targeting Venezuelan players who are suffering financially and have to rely on a game for income?

Quote
Yeah stomp that dirty homeless man sleeping on the stairs, damaging privaht propuhrty

Quote
There isnt anything wrong with what they are doing it, but more of WHY they are doing it. It isn't to protect their video game, its to be a dick to people that need money for food.

Quote
And this shows the sadistic nature of people... people who get a kick out of killing people in game not because it's fun king but because the notion of having them be unable to get food because they can't make money from gold farming makes them laugh.

Some people put their own enjoyment ahead of foreign kids food.

I saw that thread the other day.  I thought about making a post about it here but wasn't sure where and what to say.  Glad someone did, I thought it was hilarious  :nixon:

Why would Venezuelans need money?  Don't they live in a Socialist Paradise?

Shit. I guess this has helped me realize my privilege even more. So that's some good come out of it.

Had a bit of a laff when someone said to me IRL that not liking certain games like Undertale is transphobic and a hate crime because there are many people who are inches away from killing themselves and that Undertale is the only thing that's keeping them hanging on.

What's the story with Undertale?  I tried it for like five minutes, but the graphics were horrible and the story was not fun or engaging.  Does you character end up being a tranny or something?

Undertale seemed like a game made for young teenagers who'd find the random things you do in battle to be funny, like how if you don't attack the enemy, you do a dance at it or whatever and then it goes away. And the beginning where you talk to the goat lady who mothers you seemed very hamfisted, like the game is really trying hard to be quirky and appeal to people who look a little too deeply at Earthbound.  I'm really, really not surprised it's so popular among the mentally ill.

This might warrant a thread on its own, but Undertale et al reminded me of the weird infantilization of culture and popular culture we seem to going through. It's not just autists and their hugbox RPG:s, but when you look around, you have even tech giants like Google using very infant-like imagery in their advertising and their general graphic design. I'm talking cutesy cartoon characters and very childish mascots, like ones that look like they're aimed at 6-year olds at the max... But apparently this is the way things are advertised to an adult segment as well. I don't know what the fuck is going on with that, but I'm guessing it's some sort of continuation of the Tumblr/Peter Pan mentality where the current generations of "grownups" cling to childlike imagery and just refuse to, well, grow up. And that shit is everywhere once you notice it.

It's not just their ads and graphic design, but their workplaces are designed how kids think work is actually like. The best example I can think of is Google's indoor slide ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaBdAKonKRE ). It's children's playground equipment in bold, primary colors. When you're infantilized by the very company you work for, how can you not, in turn, churn out infantilizing material?

Jesus, if you could find a way to convince all the white male apologists out there to jump off a building to atone for WHITE PRIVILEGE, we could actually get some shit done around here.

We'll, maybe not in DC, because all that would be left are Ethiopian cab drivers and ghetto nigs.
