    Sony implements new policy censoring Japanese games for possible fanservice content

    I am confused, was the weeb comment sarcasm? I know I have debated with you in the past about these types of fanservicey games and I remember you usually falling on the side of pro Japanese games of all stripes. I distinctly remember you once claiming that female characters in Western games were...

    Spider-Man: With Great Games, Comes Great Responsibility

    I mean, that's kind of true of any sort of superhero one shot or spin off, I can't think of any movies, games, or tv shows that really portray any particular superhero entirely accurately to the pinnacle of their comic counterparts power. Comics tend to be so long running that most of the major...

    A puddle removed from upcoming Spiderman game, graphic warriors shriek in bereavement

    Some still screens are largely meaningless even from yongyeas video there are improvements in the final game over the 2017 build and other scenes where it?s obviously just lighting differences. None of this is indicative of some sort of lie on the devs part, i see no clear overall downgrade and...

    A puddle removed from upcoming Spiderman game, graphic warriors shriek in bereavement

    Digital Foundry put out an analysis, and if you want to watch the whole 30 minute video they go pretty in depth into a lot of things, including examining the room from the pictures and the 2017 demo compared to the final scene, eventually going into shot by shot analysis. The water seems to be...

    Would people with better FPS skills be better at paintball?

    Yeah, gonna say there's little to no overlap in skill sets. Whatever advantage would be so minimal it would be overcome over the course of a single paint pall match. The few times I've played generally physical health is a much better indicator of initial advantage, with people that can hack the...

    Nerds and Gaming

    Then you were around for it, the year you were born a usual home PC cost about $1,000 to $1500, the equivalent to roughly $4000 today, if you wanted a kitted out IBM home computer in 1981 you would pay over $3000, over $8500 today adjusted for inflation in American dollars. Just a few years...

    Battlefield V reveal- your thoughts?

    We?ve always known how DICE treats a war from history, from Battlefield 1942 to 1943, to Vietnam, to Heroes, to Battlefield 1, even Battlefield 3,4 and the Bad Company?s are fake conflicts but based on mostly real setting and modern weapons. Only Battlefield 2142 is based entirely on DICE?s...

    New Fallout has been announced.

    I think you?re getting Bethesda as a developer and Bethesda as a publisher mixed up, Bethesda the publisher has been the one talking about single player games, their #saveplayer1 thing has been about all their games, which they have been pretty committed to, with Wolfenstein 2, Prey, Doom, and...

    Battlefield V reveal- your thoughts?

    As someone that remembers the reveal for BF1, yeah you did have a lot of the same backlash, not to the same extent as far as YouTube dislikes go as most of the ire was being directed at COD infinite?s trailer at the time, but I remember multiple topics spanning hundreds of replies and dozens of...

    Roseanne cancelled

    To add, the collaborator conspiracy seems to come from the brief time he spent working for the Jewish council where he lived, the council apparently sent out letters asking members of the seminary to report, where they were likely to be interned and sent to Germany. Pulled from Snopes, but...

    Battlefield V reveal- your thoughts?

    They make attachments for this, otherwise you get the hook wedged towards the front as best you can or open the hook and clamp it around the front, some of those prosthetics have adjustable grip strength, works best with a notch or handgrip you can use to keep the rifle snug against the...

    Battlefield V reveal- your thoughts?

    To add to this, the trailer is definitely multiplayer and as far as we know none of the people shown are in single player. We see people in the trailer get shot and come back as well as the squad spawn notification at one point, the multiplayer UI shows up after the plane crashes showing the...

    Battlefield V reveal- your thoughts?

    I have heard the diesel punk thing a few times, where the heck are people getting that impression from? There is nothing steam or diesel punk in the trailer, the tanks and planes are probably the most historically accurate things shown. The prosthetic is not some diesel powered limb it?s just...

    How can gaming reclaim lost ground in the culture war?

    Pretty much this, I've been around this kind of thing in gaming for decades, and shit like this crops up all the time, parents groups, small school groups, etc. This story happened in March, it hasn't grown into some national movement, its a single school that seems to have pushed a bunch of...

    God of War Review Thread

    While possible, the realm stuff is mostly within Yggdrasil, which has limits, and seems to be limited in area it covers the 9 realms and is not a universal entity that links pantheons/ other god's areas of influence. There is a sidequest treasure map involving a mortal human mentioning...
