Kind of, there was one review, don't remember wich but I think the context was god-awful PC port, where it was mentioned where the master race man was, like here, overweight, glasses and bad sunburn, but as far as I know he's never acknowledged it as his creation on ZP, only in the passing a couple of times when he and Gabriel did Let's Drown Out on his youtube channelAeshi said:
Yep, I'm positive he came up with it WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY back in the day, even before he got the current theme song. Along with "dirty console peasants".chaosd1 said:
Yeah, FUCK realism! That's what we're trying to escape when we play video games!Canadamus Prime said:Given the general attitude of the "Master Race" Dick Slurp All-Stars would be a much more appropriate name.
Also thank you for finally acknowledging your role in that particular atrocity.
Also I'd like to point out that realism in video games, at least in terms of mechanics, is generally NOT FUN.
Fallout 3 is awesome, now I know Vavra is full of shit and not worth listening to. Don't see anything sensible about whining about "SJWs", that's been done to death and is a great way to make people disregard every single thing you say.Undomesticated Equine said:I really do enjoy this game despite the combat and the save system. You can mod the save system out of the game and the awful combat system is not an issue or rather has not been an issue for me because i look at my oponent and if i am attacked by some bandit in rags he will not be a problem but if i see armoured knight who is probably highly trained i perform a tactical retreat. The boss fight situation seems a bit concerning but how hard can it be really?
Dan Vavra is a bit controversial to some people but considering he is czech some of his opinions are to be expected he is probably much more sensible than people i go to work with every day you definitely would not like what they have to say about pretty much everything. Anyway all I know is Vavra once wrote a great article about why Fallout 3 is shit so when it comes to games he is all right.
I forgot to add the Archery is designed as a big FU to players. There is cross hair dot on the screen entire time but when you pull out the bow it disappears and you have to guess what you aiming at and your aim swings like you just drank bottle of hard liquor on empty stomach it is absolutely useless.
It was in his column. Some people had, I guess, been getting on his case about it being problematic because Nazis and all, and he pointed out that he'd meant it as more of a takedown of the "PC games are for smart people" attitude that was prevalent even way back then. He then went on to say he was totally on board with people using it sincerely now because it was pissing off the sort of people who call things "problematic".Aeshi said:
What quickly becomes obvious is that Witcher is very much a PC-exclusive game, which are typically designed to be as complex and unintuitive as possible so that those Dirty Console-Playing Peasants don't ruin it for the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race.
The first warning sign is that the manual is thick enough to beat goats to death with, and then, once you get into the game, the interface is just a few steps shy of Microsoft Access in terms of friendliness. [ ... ]
