Most of these faggots are older than me, do none of them remember NES games?  I personally have never beaten a NES or SNES game even though I grew up with those systems.

SNES games were magnitudes easier than NES games.  Maybe you just suck?

Most of these faggots are older than me, do none of them remember NES games?  I personally have never beaten a NES or SNES game even though I grew up with those systems.  It wasn't until my older brother went off to college that I finally beat FF7 and Ocarina of Time by myself even after watching him beat both games.  Games are hard, or rather, they used to be.  But that is what made all those years of failures so satisfying, if I didn't sperg out on video games and fail so much as a kid, I might very well be a Huge Fag that can't stop FB posting about EVIL WHITES or cut off my dick or vote for a lady

That was how you got $50 of value from a game back then. We ALL had Super Mario 3 back in 3rd grade, but none of us BEAT it. Not for years. You found out about the warp whistles, and then just trial and error muscle memory train yourself and then maybe one day you beat it.I had Mike Tyson's Punch Out as a kid and enjoyed the shit out of it, without ever having beaten Mike. I still can't today. It was your choice, you could just casually enjoy a few Piston Honda fights, maybe get lucky against Bald Bull here and again, or go full sperg and beat the game. Cuphead sounds like the same deal.
I have a pet conspiracy theory about Lil Yachty. The Jews made him famous to put all the marginally talented blacks like Jay-Z and whomever on notice that their fame and fortune has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any talent they might have. Jewish producers can take the most retarded nigger they can find, a guy so dumb he can't even write his own name, hook him up to autotone, and make him a star. They don't need Jay-Z; Jay-Z needs them.

Obviously there's nothing wrong with making difficult games, but I grew up on impossible SNES games and I definitely don't have a huge desire to play that type of thing. The Toy Story videogame on the SNES was one of the hardest games I've ever played, and in fact I never beat it throughout my entire life. Actually, I never even got halfway through it.

Yeah, there's a fun aspect to the challenge of accomplishing something difficult, but there's also a not-fun aspect to a game so hard you have to be a fucking autistic Japanese kid to beat it. As someone for whom videogames were always second-fiddle to things like football, motocross and basketball as a kid, I didn't have enough time to devote to those games. And that's not to say I didn't play them a lot - I did. But the investment to beat those games was beyond the pale, and any game that difficult today I wouldn't have any interest in playing.

Cinematic videogames are fine with me, as are games like Skyrim or Fallout where they are not really difficult (or don't have to be) but are more about the exploration and escapism. Those games would suck balls if you had to retry every dungeon 100 times, which is why I don't like Dark Souls.

Criticizing Call of Duty for being a cinematic single-player is VERY silly to me. First, because Black Ops was extremely story-oriented, so it made sense to be more like a movie. Second, those games are competitive, multiplayer games! Nobody buys that shit to play the single player, 99% of players just want the multiplayer, and might play single-player when they want to chill.

It's like complaining that football practice is easy because nobody is trying to hit you. Well duh, that's because nobody cares about practice, they care about the competition.

Complaining about games being "too easy" is just as dumb as complaining about games being "too hard."

A game about being a lardass would be hilarious though.
Make it like a sort of extra hard mode. The usual AssCreed mechanics become impossible - No endless parkouring (Your character gets tired after jogging for a few meters), no hiding in crowds, no super agile combat...
Fatties couldn't even complain because they're the ones that ramble on about "health at any size"/"weight discrimination".

I seem to remember the original NES Castlevania being hard as fuck. Also good luck beating Contra without the 30 lives, Konami code trick. Also you want fucking impossible? Try Ikari Warriors. No way you're beating that without the unlimited continues trick.

I made it to the final boss of Ninja Gaiden. Then I saw that dying sent you back to the beginning of the level instead of right before the boss room and stopped playing.

i own a SNES with around 70 games, & I don't do a ton of gaming, but when i do it's basically the only thing I play anymore.

I added a few more games to my collection awhile back, so I recently played through both Castlevania IV & Super Metroid for the first time...both fun & challenging games but didn't seem exceptionally difficult.  If you want a hard game, play Contra 3...I've sunk hundreds of hours into that game over the years & beat it on Easy & Normal, but you can only make it to the true final boss on Hard.  I've made it to the final boss with 70+ lives & still have never beaten him.  Such a ridiculous game.  Mega Man X is another really hard, but really fun & challenging game. 

Seeing faggots whine about CupHead & then watching gameplay footage of it really made me lol

I'm pretty sure all this 'cuphead is hard' shit is just good marketing from the devs; they have been pushing this 'hard' and 'journalists are faggots' narrative from before the game was launched.
Anyway, it's not my kind of game, but I do appreciate that they managed to capture the artstyle they were going for perfectly.

Oh Boy Blizzard is apparently banning people for saying sassy things on other forums.

You now have a Secret Tattle Police going around and reporting others who say shit on other forms of social media by calling the devs passive aggressive in their responses.




yes you read that right you can't call out the devs for making stupid decisions and they're now policing other forms of social media because they have a presence on those platforms in the forms of a twitter account/facebook profile and it thusly falls into their right to find out who the hell you are and ban you from your battle.net account.

Yep that's it, this guy has been a heel ever since his EQ days. Jeff went by the name Tigole and when EQ was big tried to pull the same shit because he was just that vain. He would request AIM screenshots and other shit to see if any of the people bringing up problems with EQ's gameplay were bashing him in private(he was a loudmouth and that privilege was strictly reserved for him). He would then try to find ways to fuck these players over using the flimsiest arguments possible, or in some instances logging in on a throwaway account and intentionally baiting them.

The race/difficulty slider in the South Park game turned out to be a joke and some nog game journalist melted down over it.

Quote
Race is almost never addressed by video games in a serious manner, but this difficulty slider feels like a step in the right direction, and the rare piece of commentary in a game that feels realistic. If first impressions are important, I’m keenly aware that my darker skin is a large part of how people perceive me at first glance. And it does make everything harder.

Simple things like walking around a supermarket or ordering at McDonald’s are met with whispered accusations of gangbanging and thuggery, and many people — white adults especially — will try to avoid me.

White parents will often grip their child’s hand and move away once they’ve spotted me. This works out when I don’t want to talk or I’m trying to get something done, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that I don’t belong, or that I’m not supposed to be doing whatever mundane tasks make up my day. These are heavy thoughts for the cereal aisle.

South Park’s difficulty slider could have been seen as a way for others to experience life while black, an accurate representation of the heightened adversity people of color face. Too often blacks are othered because of their darker skin, but Ubisoft could have presented you with an active, in-the-moment confrontation with discrimination, racism and stereotyping. The idea that the game would never let you forget you’re black was an intriguing one, because that’s how life works when you’re black.

I remember when a professor split us into groups of three to discuss global issues in a college course. I was grouped with two other people, Anna and Mindy. Mindy was Chinese. Anna was Latina, and wanted to lead the talk before asking for our opinions on the issue.

I spoke for two or three minutes. Then there was silence. Anna broke the quiet by saying she hadn’t expected that.

“Expect what?” I asked.

“I didn’t expect you to be so intelligent.”

“What does that even mean?”

“Well, based on the way you look, I didn’t think you were that smart,” she explained, as if that was a reasonable thing to say.

I felt dejected. “I guess black people are full of surprises,” I said.

This wasn’t my first rodeo. Other people will offer an incessant, nagging reminder that you’re black. They will feel the need to point it out. As if I don’t see myself in the mirror every day. Someone is going to remind you of your race in the course of your day, and often it is going to be that blatant and discriminatory.

I’m a young black male who knows The Man — meaning corporate frameworks, racial stereotypes and societal stigma — is out to get me, hindering me from advancing in life in some capacity as a means to initiate and maintain control over me. This is the slider in real life. Systems work against you. As a person of color, you have to operate at a higher level to get the same rewards. This isn’t something I believe, this is something that life shows me daily. Responding to this situation with anger is what led to the Angry Black Man trope in pop culture.

I can imagine South Park: The Fractured But Whole barring black characters from entering certain stores at certains times, because we always intend to rob convenience stores. Or maybe black characters will engage in the game’s combat more often, due to black men being so instinctively hyper-aggressive. Since the game deals with superheroes, maybe black characters will be able to jump higher or run faster. We are, everyone tells us, excellent at physical activities.

Ubisoft may have allowed you to “live while black,” by limiting the amount of money you make in the game and changing the conversations other characters have with you. I can imagine characters looking at you with fear, unsure of what you’ll do next. I could imagine friends making black jokes, telling you to “smile because you’re so damn dark your white ass teeth are lights.”

I could imagine people assuming, claiming and even demanding you play or have played basketball or football, regardless of your interest level in sports. I could imagine police pulling you over or stopping you on the street because “you look like a threat.” I could imagine all of this happening in South Park: The Fractured But Whole because this all has happened — and continues to happen — to me.

And though you’d like to believe it's not due to your skin tone but the social stigma and stereotypes associated with it that you're actively trying to disprove, it definitely is and forever will be your skin tone. It is because I’m black that parents grip their child’s hands.

It is because I’m black that people poke fun at my darker skin. It is because I’m black that people assume I play or have played basketball or football. It is because I’m black that police see me as a “threat,” prepared to shoot first and ask questions never.

It is because you’re black, and everything is because you’re black.

Many people reading this will likely be doubtful that these situations are as common as I’m making them out to be in real life. I’m doubtful a game would ever been willing to show these things as a way of describing life while black in America.

NEVER MIND, IT WAS ALL JUST A CHEAP JOKE
This all makes how the slider will actually be used even more of a betrayal.

The possibility of experiencing a life of hardship because of one unchangeable aspect of yourself doesn’t actually exist in the game, even in a humorous way. Implementing a difficulty slider that not only changes your character’s skin color but also changes how the world reacts to you would have been a brilliant and unexpected way to teach empathy to players.

Rather than introduce a conversation regarding discrimination, racism and stereotyping, South Park: The Fractured But Whole uses the discrimination blacks and people of color face every day for a quick laugh in the character creation screen.

Even in our escapism, there’s no escape from it. Someone is going to remind you that you’re black. It happens every day. Ubisoft wants to make sure it’s responsible for that reminder on at least one of those days.

Well done.
:say:

When I went to college there was this kid I thought was a complete idiot because he'd show up to class every day in sportswear (running shoes, shorts, neon wicking shirts, etc).  There was another kid who I thought was smart because she dressed professionally, had thick glasses and spent all day in the library studying.  Nerd girl was kicked out of the program for low grades while sports guy became the valedictorian. 

I don't care what race you are, if you show up to International Finance Systems 301 dressed head-to-toe in branded Nike gear, I'm going to think you're a moron.

Kotaku is defending lootboxes.




They're justifying it for all games because every game needs to be made at a cost of twenty thousand gorillion trump bucks or it's just not worth playing.

Sonic Mania actually ran sega under cost and out performed Sonic Forces which was a more expensive game. There's also games like Persona 5 and Ys which were properly budgeted.

Loot boxes are a sign of ineptitude.

Interesting note about Sonic Mania it outsold the SNES Classic for the deluxe edition alone.

Probably a paid piece by Kotaku. The $60 argument is bullshit due to the simple fact that Vidya is no longer a niche market and software development tools have been streamlined.
Fuck them.
