It's worth noting that Night Traps reputation is horribly, horribly overblown and misrepresented.

Sure it's as juvenile as it's inspiration of 80s slasher and girls in night gowns movies are, but the game is about switching between camera views of rooms to stop the monsters from attacking the girls in the house.

Chiller and Custer's Revenge are just horrible though.

That said, Chiller was made by a large and successful arcade game company and Custer's Revenge was made by the video game subsidiary of Caballero Home Video who was one of the largest and most successful pornography studios at the time.

As to Hitman, even cutting the criticism by half it still sounds like someone (well, several someones) need some therapy. I mean, it makes Saint's Row 3 and 4 look like paragons of morality in regards to adult content.

True facts about marsupialsthis explains a lot about a certain koala :p

Other then the policy on giving fucks, none of that really applies to the International Marsupial of MysteryTM. I could explain, but then I'd have to lock you in a closet with him during rut.

Or during IT audit season.

You probably want to choose the former.

It sounds like there's a lot of sore losers in Battlefield then.

I mean, I've never played it, but nothing in those videos looked like cheating or exploiting. Cheesy in places and just a little exploitive of the game mechanics letting you skip away from a high speed collision (as opposed to exploiting a glitch).

Did you violate some cultural taboo against being exceptionally skilled and creative with a 'inferior; loadout?

I just said it was as long as the action is not a movement action

Just noticed the Aegis has a sash. Nice.

Someone looked at the first mech they built and thought "Put some clothes on!"

Cheesy

Maybe it's an escaped duck.

It's not an action, but you can only do it if you don't make a move action, not all of which are movement.

Apparently some folks have a very inclusive definition of 'real life'.   Wink

Which leaves me wondering if you actually played the 8 and 16 bit games, or are being blinded by nostalgia because everything you're complaining about is there in them.

In spades.

Look at the character designs for VI. Emo pop stars galore. The devs spent massive amounts of time on the graphics, pushing the limits and more for the SNES. Samurai, ninja, and kung fu masters in a world without Japan or China.

Etc.

The XIII games have an excellent plot that isn't muddled at all. It is a complex plot though, with the motivations of actual gods involved left unclear because no one in the game understands the why of some things and Chaos et al aren't handy to explain.

The again, I understood what was happening in Xenogears and Xenosaga, so maybe I'm just weird.

* Sigh.

He's right about their interpretation of the sales numbers.

The rest is drivel.

XIII had it's failings (pacing of the first act/tutorial mostly) but XIII-2 and Lightning Returns were strong games.

Also, I'm sure this is going to drive some to apoplexy, but people need to be told it so it can sink in and hopefully take root and grow to make them the better people they can be.

Here it is.

Get ready...

Final Fantasy VII is not as good a game as you remember.

There. Let that sink in. Consider it.

If you don't believe me, you can go buy it on PSN or Steam or from Square and play it again. Do so completely objectively. The writing's just as (actually more) muddled. The characters are pretty flat. Combat's boring and gets tedious fast. Etc. Heck, the characters in VII are better written in the tiny snippets they have in the Kingdom Hearts games then they are in FFVII.

A crappy 'horror' movie based on the premise that one night a year all laws are ignored. I think there's an exception for treason or attacking politicians or something, I never watched it.

So, apparently I was right that Telltale's success with Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us (although I've  never played a bad telltale game, those two just were insanely huge successes for them) encouraged Activision to resurrect the Sierra brand.

Yay for cynicism being wrong.

My understanding is that the studio only makes a portion of the overseas box office.

the original anime series.

God, this is going to sound jerkish, but which one are you thinking of as the original? Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX, or Harlock Saga?
 
There have been three distinctly different Harlock shows and he's shown up repeatedly in various Galaxy Express related shows as well, and he's different each time. He's different each time Leiji Matsumoto uses him. Same with Tochiro, Emereldas, Maetel, etc. At the moment he considers the Saga version to be the 'correct' one. For Harlock stories. Other characters's stories get different Harlocks.

I was planning on watching it over the weekend.

Also, this isn't trying to be an argument other then pointing out that it's silly complaining that the characters are different since they're always different depending on Leiji Matsumoto's whims.

The Seventy-Five Second War by Jim Milligan.

Which Harlock are you comparing this one to? Leiji Matusomo writes him and the rest of the pantheon differently every time he uses them.
