  • So, DOOM Eternal has cosmetic DLCs, for the first seven "seasons"; that does resolve the whole 'limited availability' criticism I had about them, but it seems like the DLC is way behind, considering we're up to, what, season 18 or something?

    A little overpriced as well, in truth.
    Just need to release the rest of the old seasons, remove Denuvo, and remove the Bethesda login, then the game will be near-perfection.
    Watched the XC3 Direct this morning, and...wow. Can't wait for the game to come out!

    Apparently the Ouroboros form differs depending on who's in charge, so it's not just one design per pair, and characters can change jobs. There was also a rather obvious pixellated-censor job done when showing the "Heroes", so major spoiler it seems. Oh, and apparently the Shulk amiibo switches the Swordmaster blade to the Monado; wonder what the Aegis amiibos do...

    I do hope XC: DE's "Appearances" make a return, so I can dress my characters however I want - and that XC2's Custom difficulty also returns, since that was amazing for both accessibility and for just general use; it's a shame it was locked behind NG+ for T:TGC, unlike the main game.
    Is it weird that the only Aussie Prime Minister I remember is John Howard? He was PM when I was a wee lil' bairn, yet he's the only name I can recall.

    It is weird. There's Anthony Albanese, Tony "The Onion Man" Abbott, Scott "Get Off My Lawn" Morrison, Malcom Turnbull.

    I don't recognise Albanese at all, but the other three do ring a bell, I admit.
    I don't get the appeal of Prof. Sada, in Pokémon Scarlet; she just looks too wild and feral to be attractive. Just...ew. Juniper was better, even though I don't care for her - which just shows how much I care for goddamn Sada.

    I also dislike how both the male and female PCs wear the exact same outfit, instead of different ones - like all previous games. So boring, disappointing, and gross.

    "wild and feral" is precisely the reason why she is attractive

    Oh. Maybe it's just me, then.
    Well, apparently pokemongts.com is gone now; such a shame, since it used to have a great list of AR codes for DS Pokémon games.
    At least archive.org has it backed up.

    Frankly, I'm surprised the style-creating team haven't added this in yet; it's been, what, months since the new style was brought in, yet still not in.
    Fire Emblem tacticians...who would win, Robin (Awakening) or Claude (Three Houses)?

    I still believe Super Mario 64 DS remains the pinnacle of 3D Mario, due to its almost-complete non-linearity and its total lack of frustrating/bullshit collectibles. Sunshine's crap, Galaxy doesn't come close, and Odyssey's decent but not as great.

    Horrible controls though. That alone prevents me from considering it the definitive edition of SM64.

    Honestly, SM64 hasn't aged well. It was the early days of 3D platformers and they hadn't perfected the formula yet and it shows. It controls fine, but the camera leaves a little to be desired. It's the level layout, half the stages seem like they're thrown together from random pieces they didn't find anywhere to put, the pieces don't fit together and don't follow a theme, and this especially shows in Rainbow Ride.

    Still a good game, but far from a masterpiece. Banjo Kazooie is far superior.

    I would love to see another Bravely game; the series always has great characters and gameplay, not to mention music.
    So there's a BlazeBlack 2 Redux ROM hack now...hmm, nah, original's better, since it doesn't have the buggy Fairy type (not fully implemented) nor does it unnecessarily and unjustifiably nerf Steel. Nor does it replace moves with newer ones.

    I generally don't like ROM hacks that do such things, as it ruins the feel of a Gen 3/4/5 ROM hack - if I wanted Fairy and was braindead enough to want nerfed Steel, I'd play the actual 3DS or Switch games. Not DS.

    Also, I don't like how it replaces a bunch of so-called "useless" moves with newer ones - I like Spike Cannon and Luster Purge, thank you very much, just changed to be Ground or stronger respectively. Why remove Sacred Fire? Why lower PP counts a la Legends? Why implement Gen 6+ nerfed special moves?

    So yeah, no thanks, you ruined the ROM hack. I'll stick with the original BlazeBlack 2.

    What's the best way to preserve games - physical, or digital? Both have inherent flaws that prevent them from being THE answer.

    Digital dumps rule. They can also be used in an emulator (assuming one is made) once all the original hardware rots away irrepairably.

    For PC games, sadly the best way is NoCD hacks. By NoCD I also mean fake steam_api.dll

    The only console I can think of where raw dumps haven't been done yet is the PSP. Apparently games are stored encrypted on the UMD itself, but the disc drive coprocessor already gets you the data decrypted, and there is no way found yet to switch it to raw mode.

    Old cartridges with real ROM chips are very, very long-lived. Pressed optical media are better than their reputation (if treated with care).
    But preserving a physical copy is preserving for you only. At some point everything must be dumped to ROM files to potentially survive centuries. (Yes, people laugh at me for thinking that far ahead, but think of classic literature – already centuries old)
    TIL that the Unreal Engine was named after a 1998 game, developed by Epic MegaGames and Digital Extremes and published by GT Interactive; I always thought it was just a "cool" word chosen to sound "cool".

    1 April now, and there was a neighbourhood-wide power outage early this morning; it only just got fixed.

    It's always sounded quite conceited and egotistical of us humans when someone says something is "universal" - like, "universal concern" - when the vast majority of the universe doesn't care or know at all. Why not stick to "global", at most?

    In BW, she appears in Castelia to temporarily serve as Bianca's bodyguard, then in Opelucid to tell some part of the Reshiram/Zekrom legend (and as Gym Leader in White, instead of the much cooler Drayden). Oh, and she also appears at the end of the story along with most of the Gym Leaders to stop Plasma's Sages, but that's not exactly special to her alone, so...

    In BW2, she again appears in Castelia, to guide the player to the Sewers - that's it. She disappears for the rest of the game, and later turns out to be the goddamn Champion, replacing the far more interesting and worthwhile Alder.
    WORTHLESS CHARACTER. Why make this useless girl the Champion? Completely undeserved.

    Is Iris as bad as XY's Diantha, though? She also does literally fuck-all throughout the game; she doesn't try to stop Team Flare, she only appears two or so times for brief chats, and she doesn't even remember your name when you do make it to the Champion's room.

    Y'know, Pokemon would be a lot better if A) model animations were livened up, ala PBR on Wii or Colo/XD on GC, and B) model animations (like, say, flying or floating) inherently affected gameplay - for example, flying/floating species inherently being immune to Ground. So stuff like Mega Charizard X, Haunter, Magnezone, Bronzor, Beedrill, Venomoth, etc. would be Ground-immune without needing Levitate.
