Why the games media has a diversity problem - this website especially

5lectro

1 week ago

no game developer has ever called them a "little girl" in a tweet. (This genuinely happened to me once.)
There's perhaps another conversation to be had that game journalists can't really call out this kind of behaviour without burning bridges or exposing themselves to harassment by extremist game fans who will feel the need to defend their beloved games company.

Yakuza 6 review - a new beginning and a fitting end for Sega's great series

5lectro

1 month ago

Yeah, I rode the love for the first game all the way through Yakuza 2-5 but ultimately they don't seem to have any interest in making the plots interesting...

Fist of the North Star fits the team perfectly. Men being manly and sternly pondering the actions of other manly men. And then settling their differences with a manly, honorable fight.

Pokémon Go rips up its Mewtwo raid rulebook

It's a brilliant idea for a game, but the execution has been laughable. 1.5 years on it still feels so beta. A social game with no social features.

Sure, in Japan & in whatever tech bubble Niantic is based people actually show up at raids organically. In other places, even very busy ones, good luck finding a raid partner let alone the dozen necessary for a legendary raid without resorting to groups on social networks.

I guess the UK didn't really get swept into the manga/anime thing in the '90s the way the rest of europe did which is why games coming from those kind of franchises and/or aimed at that audience have generally been relatively ignored by Eurogamer.

10 years ago, sure, but now maybe it's time you find a contributor with an interest, so that your articles don't make me feel like I'm 12 all over again and my dad is giving me his opinion on the stupid jap stuff I'm watching. I mean, the article isn't bad, but I don't see the same tone when you're reviewing US superhero stuff for example.

I'm not saying Pewdiepie shouldn't know better than to be a stereotypical gamer-with-a-microphone, but to call him racist because he has a camera is hypocritical. Most gamers do/say much worse at home.

these games tend to have pretty convoluted plots, so if you've not played these titles before, you might have to do a bit of outside reading to catch up.
To be honest I don't think any amount of reading is going to make sense of it.

I like the series but they really go quantity over quality from the ground up. Take your time, write a decent story and make sure the player feels like he's playing a new game instead of reheating the same one every year and adding more locations, more characters, more grind and new hostesses...

Based on? Their age? I'd say being in your thirties and begging for a remake of a video game somewhat immature.

"it also does not not hurt to listen once in a while" sounds a bit more reasonable than "blindly obey fans of your older work and start an X hundred million dollar project based on their demands".

This complaint seems awfully gender-normative:

Krem is voiced by someone of the wrong gender though - Jennifer Hale in this case - which does continue to play into the wrong-headed idea that a trans person is someone merely posing as the opposite gender.
