1v1 me bad kid
Alright guys, we can end this line of discussion now. Calling people trolls or discussing what is and isn’t trollish behavior isn’t really within the scope of this topic, and is also against the rules.
Nintendo doesn’t need our forgiveness, I agree.
What they DO need is our Earth currency, and in the world of connected devices and cross-platform functionality, their business strategy worldwide is looking less and less like viable competition for the contents of my wallet, and more like one of those always-on Tim and Eric comedy routines where they’re such a good job being a bizarre ironic caricature that you can’t even see the bulge from where they might be planting a tongue firmly in cheek.
Nobody’s being entitled. Entitled is thinking you deserve a thing by virtue of it existing. This is simply saying “this is what you should be doing to avoid looking like a joke next to your competitors.”
If you’re not willing to tier up, Mini Ninjas in the lowest tier is a steal. Such a good little game that very few people actually played.
Yes. Yes it is.
It also means Destiny 2 and 3 and whatever else won’t have Marty’s music.
They may end up reusing tracks from the first game. Also, until I hear otherwise, I am going to assume that Michael Salvatori is still working on the game, despite the fact that he was Marty’s partner for almost 40 years. I wonder if he’ll leave Bungie, too?
Stop enjoying what I don’t like.
If you’re even moderately skilled you can still get some kills against better equipped players and earn some points for upgrades.
I dunno, the potential differences in weapon choice can result in STAGGERING imbalances. I saw it versus people with the best upgraded auto-rifles and now I see with the best upgraded scout rifle.
Individual class abilities are the big equalizer against tougher opponents, but those opponents also have access to class abilities, so it balances out.
I’ve been sort of watching this with a bit of amusement as well. 343 is following a path Bungie initiated with Reach (and IMO balanced it better in Halo 4)…but if people think Destiny is going to be truer to the “pure skill” even playing field of earlier Halo’s they’re in for a rude awakening.
All of these things.
When I first went into Iron Banner, I got stomped by people with better weapons and armor but poor situational awareness. After grinding the available Strike multiple times, I came out with top-tier weapons for level 8, and found myself tearing through multiple opponents in a single clip on numerous occasions. People whining about slight differences between BR/DMR/LightRifle don’t know how good they had it.
But then you get shot down, metaphorically speaking.
So hey guys, what is up with you all
Three things to discuss en mi poastada:
1. So I watched 2 Fast 2 Furious last night. It was enjoyable, if hokey. I did hear liberal usage of the words “bro,” “brah,” and “bruh,” and even “breh” made an appearance. I guess I can now die fulfilled.
2. I bought SSX for ten bucks!
3. Destiny. I like it but at the same time, I can imagine the reactions from all the people that said 343 turned Halo 4 into unbalanced shitty cawadoody and they’re all jumping ship to Bungie’s game for its multiplayer. Everyone has different weapons, there are skills to kill outright which are difficult to dodge, it’s a bit of a mess, which I shouldn’t complain about, because I’m rocking the best weapons and can now stomp anybody that I have line-of-sight on. To be fair, a lot of these PS3 folks don’t seem to have ever touched a Halo game, and think that double jumping high into the air during an escape somehow makes you less vulnerable.
Still, Destiny feels EXACTLY what I would expect Bungie to make coming right off of Halo: Reach, and that’s pretty cool, though I don’t know if I’m down for an eight-year plan.
You have my sword, Justin.
Primarily because I’m going to be your second for when this goes tits up and you start making a suit out of human skin.
The moderation: People have already commented on this, so I won’t repeat all of that, but I got a warning on a post of mine and was encouraged to contact the mods to discuss it. I did so, writing a fairly comprehensive reply asking several questions hoping to clarify the reason and didn’t receive a response. I even forwarded the email to the team again, several weeks later hoping to get a reply. Disapointing.
I just went through the moderator emails and I saw nothing from you. You sure you sent it to the right address? Did you use the form on the Contact page?
It’s definitely required playing for that console. It also does something that does something I wish Okami could’ve done: not botch the pacing going into the frozen northern wilds of Japan in the last segment.
I only wish the final dungeon had been a bit longer; Goe Goe Spark was damn near the best song I heard on the N64 outside of the Silo theme from GoldenEye and maybe the Spirit Temple theme from Ocarina.
About to watch 2 Fast 2 Furious, as I have made it my mission to catch up on the franchise history before Fast 7.
Tomorrow: Tokyo Drift
When Disgaea did it, they used the colors of the rainbow. It was parody. Here, it’s much more suspect because this developer took pains to specifically evoke Power Rangers by showing the five sentai colors associated with Juuranger, the series that Haim Saban licensed and reworked into Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. It’s still parody, but it’s much more contentious because it looks like they’re piggybacking directly off of an existing IP.
Hey guys, just a heads up: Read the Community Guidelines if you’re unsure as to what what constitutes good discourse here on Polygon. A couple of long and heated comment chains were removed for various reasons to get the discussion back on track, so please play nice in the future.
The first Goemon 64 game. It was like silly Zelda. It also had great music, killer visual design, and the late game dungeons were creatively on par with Ocarina of Time.
Loading up Destiny beta.
I’m expecting a game like a bunch of other games I also own. Prove me wrong, Bungle.
Pretty good! Heading out now for volunteer stuff and then Chinese foooooooood afterwards.
I’m pretty sure that stuff all goes on super sale when Steam Sale Season rolls around. Definitely wait. They’ll do much better than 25%. Even if you’re only saving a few dollars months later, you’re still saved a few dollars.
And let it not take six and a half hours to download…
Just finished watching The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Wes Anderson’s cuts are surgically precise, and this movie really evokes Akiyuki Shinbo at his absolute best just because of the dogged determination present in staging these lateral cuts, like I’m watching a living diorama.
People don’t buy things more when parts of the product are removed.
Tell that to all the people who bought the PS3 slim.
We had to beg for titles like Xenoblade and such.
This is exactly the game that indicated a sea change in Nintendo’s policy toward the people they ignored during the Wii’s lifespan. The fact that they even released the game in NA, especially so late after its original release date, indicated that they were going to change course for their next console and wanted to start earning back that goodwill in the months prior to the Wii U’s launch.
There was no reason for them to bother giving us Xenoblade unless corporate had a serious “Oh Shit” moment and all hands were on deck, likely caused by the Wii’s slowing sales post-2008, as the 360’s (and, eventually, the PS3’s) libraries began filling out. In this light, it’s entirely possible that Nintendo sent Xenoblade out because they had to, similar to what I said about the new Fatal Frame every.
