  1. Pacing. If a story-driven game is taking too long to unfold and open up, I drop it. Fuck the "just wait until you're 20 hours in" bullshit, if you can't at least create a vaguely intriguing narrative where I'm at least mildly interested in seeing how it unravels, you failed as a story writer. This can be attributed to both not teasing the player with enough plot to get them invested, or bogging it down in a shitload of exposition that nobody cares about. I remember Eternal Sonata in particular had a character I just met who was going to die and they dropped a 10-minute cutscene on them pontificating about life just in an attempt to get me invested and I almost dropped the fucking game there. I'm an MMO/dungeon crawler/pokemon player, so things like grinding doesn't particularly bother me. Those are games that can function as busywork while I do something else like listen to podcasts or watch shows. I think a lot of what contributes boredom is contextual and additive. I don't mind easy games, but if there's nothing else to keep me engaged like a plot or the presentation, I get burned out. Grinding in games CAN be a slog, but if it's something like Warframe or Diablo 3 where the gameplay is engaging and fast-paced as fuck it can keep me occupied enough that I don't mind it.

    it was more than "a few idiots" and his insistence on focusing on "game journalism" portion while ignoring or handwaving the enormous harassment campaigns people did is is a massive blackspot on his career enough to the point that people feel he empowered the toxic bullshit that came from it he was a force in the youtube gaming industry but the gamergate bullshit is something a lot of people (rightfully in many cases) haven't forgiven him for, let's not mince words here

    just because it's something you didn't want or expect doesn't make it bad, it's okay if the show isn't for you it's entitled af to say "what it should be" or "what it could be" idk maybe i've grown old but i'm okay with everything not being made for me anymore, i can not like it but it's not a demerit towards the product like nintendo labo being a product for kids, or legend of korra being for people with shit taste

    ^^^^ ttg is actually a love letter to the dc universe with a lot of lore jokes and parody in it for people to laugh at going beyond some of the childish humor in it i mean yeah it's not a sequel to teen titans but it's still a solid show

    Nintendo Switch's Online Community?

    Nintendo's archaic and retarded when it comes to streaming or Let's Play content about their games, don't get your hopes up.

    Nintendo Switch's Online Community?

    I don't frankly care because a lot of that shit is integrated into general social media nowadays. It's like complaining about the shitty voice chat when most people have a PC/laptop/tablet with discord on it and have been using that for ages regardless. A cell phone being a companion piece makes too much sense considering almost everyone and their moms have one. The Switch syncs with Twitter/Facebook and you can upload shit directly to those, I don't see how that's different than Nintendo's often heavily moderated and somewhat restrictive and insular online services of yesteryear.

    Bioha7ard is coming to Switch...

    Seems like an interesting way to circumvent actually porting and optimizing the game on the Switch, which would probably be a pain in the ass considering you're have to probably remake and optimize a new engine like UE4 to make it even possible. I'm interested to hear impressions since it's a weird little experiment and we're approaching the age where internet infrastructure is becoming good enough for such a thing to be possible in the first place.
