  1. 2B (Nier Automata) Chrono (Chrono Trigger) Arthur (Ghouls & Ghosts) Somebody from Tekken which I've never played so idk who (Tekken) New Pokemon, let's say Rillaboom (Sword/Shield) Monster Hunter (Monster Hunter) Locking in my predictions.
  2. Y'all keep saying this is "first and foremost an awards show." Honest question, does anybody actually care about the game awards themselves? Do they carry any weight with anybody? Obviously the show positions itself as the video game analogue to the Oscars but I don't see it having that level of prestige, maybe in part because it also functions as a secondary E3 for big reveals from the major companies. You can't be the Oscars while also being the hype train for future Microsoft and Sony products. It's too blatantly commercial for the awards to mean anything, so in a way I think it's fair to treat it the same as E3 since the commercials are truly the most important part of the show. People don't even talk about the awards when there's a big reveal to talk about instead.
  3. Man fuck minimum wage service jobs and fuck capitalism. I was partway through describing the incident but it doesn't matter, it's not a secret that there are a lot of aggressively stupid people out there who make a regular activity out of inventing inane things to be mad about so they can complain to floor staff and get management to give them free shit so they'll go away. I'm just tired of seeing these people rewarded for obnoxious behavior. The customer is not always right. Placating them does a disservice to society, especially workers who have to deal with the trauma of getting yelled at by strangers over stupid shit and not be able to say anything back for fear of getting in trouble. This happened hours ago and it's haunting me because all I could do in the moment was feel flustered and give the guy his free shit, per boss' orders. It's humiliating.
  4. I don't necessarily like what this says about me, but lately whenever I feel like playing a PS4 game, my first thought is "...but then I'd have to go sit in front of the TV and move away from my computer." and I end up playing something on Switch or my phone or PC instead. It's a sad state of affairs when I'm so addicted to staring at one screen that I won't even leave to go stare at a different screen.
  5. Yeah he's very much still making videos, on a 3 per day schedule at the moment. Weird, obscure catplanet type stuff is more of a rarity now because he's subsidized by Patreon and gives his backers a lot of control over what he plays, but it's still largely Mario rom hacks and retro platformers.
  6. My non-problematic fav is raocow, who is way too small and niche to ever be properly recognized, but is the purest and most dedicated of them all. Came from the same early, SA based lets play scene as ProtonJon, but polar opposite of Jon in that he's consistently uploaded at least one video per day almost without exception for the decade-plus since he started.
  7. AVGN should have known better than to contribute to the maelstrom around that movie at that moment in time. This isn't a math problem though, we're dealing with human beings. True, we objectively don't have the answers. But when this situation comes up, try considering it from other angles, such as: what does this accuser stand to gain from accusing this person, versus just keeping quiet? Why would they take the risk of kicking that hornets nest? Nine times out of ten, there is no material gain to be had. She chose to speak up despite having every reason not to, including the inevitability of having his substantial fanbase try to harass her off the internet, as well as alienating people in her personal life. His sainthood is not at stake, and that use of language is part of the gambit. There's no point in debating the character of someone we don't know. This issue is about his actions and nothing more.
  8. Well having not watched the video, and having no intention of watching it, I'm willing to believe that his defense maybe merits consideration, at least in a legal context. But I don't think that matters too much because this is more about being a martyr and trying to rebuild his image. So in a court-of-public-opinion context, what I'm seeing from that summary is a scummy person trying to leverage half-truths and kernels of doubt to manipulate his audience to defend him. It's not hard to see why considering how many times this tactic has succeeded for successful men who fell victim to "cancel culture." I've already seen his fans on twitter imploring dissenters to "just watch the video," another way of casting doubt by putting the idea out there that anyone who's not willing to engage with his arguments, specifically by watching this long-ass tirade that any non-fan is unlikely to sit through, is not allowed to criticize him.
  9. Can someone summarize what he says in that video so I don't have to watch it
  10. Finally living my high school self's wildest dreams by playing Minecraft on a good PC with shaders and max settings w/ no lag. First time playing it on not a shitty laptop, and first time playing it in general in like three years I think. I guess now begins the search for a fun mod pack.
  11. I don't know anything about the economics of either of these industries so I can only guess. But from this consumer's pov, there's a clear trend over the last several years of major studios giving bloated budgets to a handful of increasingly bloated products each year, with indies delivering small, low budget affairs, and little middle ground between the two extremes. The mid-budget movie/game seems more and more like a thing of the past (though I feel like Nintendo with the Switch has done an admirable job of boosting the low- and mid- tier game to being a cornerstone of what the system offers, while PS4 and Xbox tend to tout themselves as the way to play the new triple A releases above all else) and I'm not really sure how it gets fixed unless the blockbuster releases start failing financially. Hopefully it won't be as drastic as an industry-wide crash, but sooner or later they have to realize that they need those mid-budget offerings to insulate the blow they take when a major release flops hard. Then again, if it's Disney, they might just absorb the loss and make sure the next one is a surefire hit, ie fewer artistic risks. You can almost always count on media execs learning the wrong lessons.
  12. Fun level, one could easily flesh out this concept of scaling the timed beat blocks with the cat suit. Incidentally I thought the description said "take a big dump in the cat suit" for a brief instant. --- I have a short one called "bicycles" I made in an hour or two earlier today.. 3NG-M5T-1FF
  13. I'm not sure exactly what kind of hopping technique you're referring to as I haven't played the SNES Mario Kart that much. But you don't need to do any hopping to make turns, you just hold down the R button for the whole turn and press L at the right moments to get your boosts. The R button itself does make you hop initially, but you just press and hold it to drift like you'd expect.
  14. Is A always the accelerate button in Mario Kart? I can't remember, but I'm a veteran of CTR so driving with the bottom button feels perfectly natural to me. Also, once you understand how it works, the drift mechanic is very satisfying and intuitive imo. I enjoy having to work a little bit for those boosts, trying to time out the button presses perfectly. I played for a bit yesterday, did a couple online races but mostly adventure mode. Got to the point where I've just unlocked the final area, but I haven't gone back to any races to get relics or tokens yet. The unlock thresholds for certain skins seems a bit high to me, like winning 10 races to get a simple palette swap, but it's better than not having that extra stuff at all I suppose.
