idk man i understand the ableism that comes with video games and the lack of real work towards making things more accessible but im also firmly on the boat of like...not everything needs to be fully accessible to everyone, and its not the artist's responsibility to ensure that it is, either 

 

the game is meant to be hard, its their schtick and it has been for years and it fills a niche and 'git gud' isn't a deliberate roadblock meant for disabled gamers

 

if it isn't your thing, it isn't your thing, but the devs and creators shouldn't be flogged for not putting in an easy mode when that's not the kind of experience they're attempting to build 

sorry for responding to this late. I thought it was better to take a step back for a few days and cool off first. It's, yeah, as you say. There's only so much developers can do to make games accessible, and sometimes that frustration with that makes me lose perspective. I don't entirely know what else to add to that, I guess what I'm trying to say is, thanks.

no problem, thanks for reading what i said at all

 

i completely think that gaming as a whole needs to work on being more accessible, i can understand the frustration that must come with a hobby you love with sometimes huge barriers to entry

 

i hope as the industry progresses we see more options available for all different kinds of people who game, without sacrificing artistic vision for it

The biggest accessibility issue that I've come across is left-handed options for 3/DS games.

 

Which is weird because I can wield a mouse with my right hand just fine; I'm just left-handed for everything else.

Went to Best Buy earlier and looks like they moved things around again quite a bit

 

kinda got confused of where things were and was in there a bit longer than expected

 

And unless I’m mistaken, looks like they expanded into toys - there was a nice dual row with toys in them (and a few Funko Pops and Nendoroids here and there and one lone Figma with a handful of Overwatch merchandise)

 

If I had a lot more on hand and to spare, would’ve bought the Nendoroids/Figmas, but considering how expensive they are... unlikely will happen for some time

In replaying Ace Attorney trilogy I've come across turnabout big top. I mostly remember that as the "one case" you need to deal with to enjoy 2-4 (which, imo, is still the best AA case); I wonder if my opinion will change after all these years.

 

In general, I've tended to appreciate most of the cases I've replayed, so we'll see how 2-3 goes.

Being a Night Owl with Sleep Apnea and Insomnia is a horrible combination for a person to have

 

I should know, considering how bloody messed up my sleep schedule is

 

Should really get to bed...

I honestly don't know.

 

Maybe it's because I learned how to use a computer in pre-school before I learned how to wield a crayon.

Thanks! I played in the MCQ qualifier side event the next day... started off 4-0(!) but ended up 4-2.

 

Enjoying bo1? :P

Haha thankfully I finally spent some of my wildcards to build out my UR Drakes sideboard so I'm sticking to the traditional play mode for now.

 

Prerelease this weekend!! You considering playing?
