    Detective Pikachu movie

    So weird that video game movies are just doing the Koopatropolis thing now but it’s normal

    Rllmuk's Official Sales Figures

    Sega didn't provide them and it didn't even chart in a lot of places, doesn't seem like it did well.
  3. Except it's made with completely new assets.

    Final Fantasy XV

    Square just seem to be fucked as a company, they can't work on a single mainline project without it being some epic, clearly cut back disaster that comes out on an incredibly shonky engine, and yet they churn out endless FF spinoffs while the main series goes increasingly to shit. I have to reference Dark Id's playthrough of the 3rd birthday, because it's made by all three of their lead staff members, and is a monument to their sins. Nomura, the concept of scope creep made flesh, can't work on anything without turning it into a trilogy with spinoff side stories, prequels, and other bullshit that often never sees release. Latest statements are about adding loads more spinoffs to FF7RE. Kitase, the creepy otaku producer, really loves creating cute girls and dressing them up in skimpy outfits, behind 3rd birthdays clothing damage system and the dress-up mechanics in FFX-2 and FFXIII Lightning Returns. Tabata, the guy who they actually get to cut stuff down and throw it out the door who doesn't give a fuck about the actual quality. Has a whole string of average-to-poor rated releases, but on the plus side actually had projects make it out the door!

    It's incredible, you mean. I'd never heard of it before that stream, and was amazed to see an advert show it was from Square Enix and not some random PSN equivalent of the Asset Store.
  6. I really don't understand these people saying mobile Diablo would be a bastardisation or be really poor, it's not exactly a complex skill-intensive game, is it? You click on enemies until they explode and occasionally click on a power to use it or on your health to refill it. You don't even actively move your character around, just click where they need to go. Replacing all of those with taps changes nothing.

    Games you keep buying despite not liking them

    I've got loads of base/settlement building games sitting largely unplayed. Towns/Banished/Frostpunk etc. They used to be my kind of thing, but don't get much of a look-in nowadays.
  8. Also I love the old forensic guys, I'm surprised they're not a meme. "Oh I've got some great blood splatter videos you could watch"
  9. So you're admitting it's not actually about a mobile game.
  10. Oh noes, the integrity of my digitial distribution platform!
  11. Yeah, but it's not actually about the game, is it? Gamers just do these mob mentality campaigns every now and again, we've just seen a similar attempt with Red Dead 2, where people were sort of setting it up for being a high profile flop and being really negative and trying to spread that negativity to as many threads as possible to build a narrative, and if you point out what they're doing and say it's weird they immediately start gaslighting. Of course, that one didn't really get off the ground because they kinda misjudged just how popular it would be, but people are still gamely trying. They're like a tribal thing, about us and them and giving them a bloody nose.
  12. I like the two little subplots running through the series - how fucking boring prison is, with Avery's calls about Gatorade or ice cream from the commissary being his news for his parents during their calls. The other one being the ridiculous amount of grifting surrounding the case, from the woman who wants to marry him and then ditches him as a publicity stunt to get on TV, to the former prosecution lawyer peddling his book, just awful people doing awful things with awful consequences for the Avery family for a chance at a bit of cash.
  13. Genuine question to the people upset: how does this announcement negatively affect you in any way? So far, the best explanation anyone has come up with is NEG suggesting it stops them from releasing a sequel, even though this relies on speculation that is contradicted by Blizzards own statements, and the fact the game is outsourced and not taking up any of their internal capacity, which was actually part of the substance of the complaints, but now we're pretending it's not outsourced if it's convenient for our arguments.
