Star Wars Battlefront 2's new cosmetic microtransactions go live

@Stollenspiders Totally agree - The industry is now big enough to follow the trends of Films & Music - There is the souless cash grab bollocks aimed at the easily influenced which dominates the media (Your Ed sheeran/Little Mix brigade) but if you take the time to look beyond that you find the innovative/wothwhile stuff (IE Moon Safari/IQ/Galactic Cowboys etc).
Look at the proliferation of Destiny/SoT/Fortnite articles that are on EG, thats where the money lies and i bet they are the articles with the highest clicks. As long as they also cover the Yakuza/Ori/Stardews then thats fine.

Disgraced Donkey Kong champ Billy Mitchell releases statement

Devox

@RicardoG The Evidence is there, thats why he has lost his records. DK PCB & DK Emulated load up screens differently. If he was using an original PCB the image loads from outside in, MAME from top to bottom. Go watch his tape, it should NEVER have stood as its sketchy as hell. Which, as I said earlier, is a shame because he IS an Elite level player.

Gamings Lance Armstrong right there. King of Kong worked so well because Mitchell just looks and acts like someone you'd cross the street to avoid. Everyone has a limit to their talents, it just seems as though Mitchell wouldn't accept that and took to the use of Emulators, which is sad given the fact he is a brilliant player.

@josepm.pons Odd, The review makes it sound like it hasn't strayed very far from the original hack n slash mechanics. They have tweaked a few systems and added an extra layer of complexity to the combat. To say you hate it without actually playing it is a little childish don't you think, its a s bad as Pazz wetting himself over it despite, like you, not having played the bloody thing.

You must think Eurovision is the height of musical culture if you can listen to that and not feel your ears trying to commit suicide. Japan and popular music have never been good bedfellows of course. It is the country that inflicted BabyMetal on the world (I always though that if Kim-Jong-un wanted to declare war on Japan he could have cited that monstrosity as an act of aggression!).
It's a slippery slope. One minute your listening to god awful J-pop, the next your buying tentacle rape monster plushies!

Metal Gear Survive review - surprisingly enjoyable horror spin-off

Devox

2 months ago

I've watched quite a bit of footage of this game and I've yet to see anything that even remotely looks mediocre. Now there is a chance that posters are only uploading utterly shite looking content and are deliberately not showing the good stuff but thats unlikely. Now, i enjoy the Metal Gear Games despite Kojima being the second worst writer in the history of the medium (David Cage could even leapfrog him if Detroit is a 4000% improvement over his output so far) so a MG game without Kojimas terrifying writing was something I was looking forward to, but this is Steam Greenlight level tosh.
But it functions and some people do actually seem to be enjoying it so I guess it just about justifies not being an avoid. But its not for me.

@danielmarian Sorry, History is not a science. There is no way to prove or disprove anything. I could theorise that Jesus Christ was a real person. The available data 'Suggests' this was not the case but, unless you were there, we can never know for certain. I mean, you'd think some bloke healing the sick and walking on water would be pretty big news yet the only accounts we have are those contained in the bible. There is no other mention in any other texts of the time. It is impossible to prove one way or the other. It is a cliche but history really is written by the victors. All we can do is piece together as much data as we can. This is particularly true about the period between 300 and 1500 AD where there is scant evidence to the historical narrative.

@vert1go But you are our resident Nintendo fan are you not? So how do you justify buying those racist, misogynistic Mario games? How many black or asian characters are there? Why is the only female character depicted as a helpless airhead, constantly kidnapped by the same character. Bowser is obviously depicting the black man stealing the white woman who is, in turn, defeated by the strong White male. Zelda always needs rescuing by a Blond haired white guy - obviously racist and sexist. Pokemon promotes cruelty to animals, all the enemies in Halo are Aliens, fairly obvious what their agenda is right? Why are all the protagonists of Yakuza Asian and male?????

You see, if you're mad enough, you can be offended by, or make up something to be offended by in pretty much everything.

Oh, and if you don't give money to Racist,sexist,homophobic etc people then you will never buy anything ever again because somewhere in that chain there will be one. Denying money to 100 people because 1 of them is an asshole leading to 99 good and decent people being made unemployed...not so black and white then is it. Once you get up on that high horse its a long way down for that humble pie.

@MrTomFTW Thats a really weak argument. God forbid that an artist actually have an imagination. By that logic, Picasso hung around some damn strange looking women as did Van Gogh, Dali etc etc. Jesus was born and raised in the middle east yet all medieval art depicts him as white when he almost certainly was not. What I'm saying is that Art is probably the single worst 'proof' you could use. The fact is, even today, there are large areas of middle and eastern europe where you will not see anything but a white face. This is also true in huge areas of China, India, Bangladesh, South America etc where you will not see a white face. Does that make these areas inherently racist? There are still areas today where women are second class citizens (in the time period depicted here there were places where the women were third class citizens behind the livestock). History isn't very nice and the dark ages were particularly brutal. Bertie seems incapable of grasping this fact. Perhaps its best if he goes back to his no platforming safe space and make sure he only reviews 'Non-Trigger games'.

Case in point. If I were to create a game about where i grew up in ENGLAND in the 1980's there would be no 'People of Colour' in the game as there were none in the Village at that time. Thats over 500 years after this game is set. Now the guy that runs this studio is a complete Asshat, of that there is little doubt, but marking down a game because it IS historically accurate is a poor move. Basically Bertie, if you're going to be a SJW at least be a smart one because this makes you look like the worst kind of offended by everything snowflake with little to no grasp of the historical realities of 15th century Europe.
