    I've seen a lot of shit thrown towards it even by Kojima itself, but I thoroughly enjoyed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

    Sure, it's not your average Metal Gear game and you'll be disappointed if you expect it to be as such, but it makes it clear that it's supposed to be its own thing right from the title - that's why its name was changed from "Metal Gear Solid: Rising" to its current one during development. On the other hand, if you get into it while expecting a different experience, you're going to have a good time. The gameplay is fun, the fast-paced combat is great (aside from a few cheap shots by a couple of bosses), slicing enemies in free blade mode is very satisfying and it also has a handful of genuinely memorable moments during its cutscenes and story. The only downsides I can find are a few OHKO QTEs scattered here and there, which can come out as annoying nowadays but were kind of commonplace when it was released (and even then, the game is kind enough to autosave just before them in case you fail), so it can be partly excused for them.

    Duke Nukem Forever should be Retconned out of the DN canon.

    I hope Microsoft fully realizes that the Xbox and PC gaming areas aren't supposed to be the same.

    Sony deserves to eventually go broke for going woke when it comes to their callous policing of content of games on their consoles since 2 or 3 years ago. If they don't shape up, may they leave the console market in shambles.

    I hope Vox goes under.

    Mashable is fucking SJW garbage and so is Kotaku!

    Some of the reporters on this site don't deserve their position. This is especially true for hard-line democrat-leaning woke dunderheads such as Xzi.

    4chan's /v/ and /r9k/ boards both have their golden years behind them. However, they manage to end up worse than they usually are during summer with more shitposts, political shit-flinging, spamming, and visitations from underage 12-17 year-olds.

    It is unrealistic, and at worst blatantly idiotic, to actually subscribe to the idea that humans don't have enough differences within them to have races. You CANNOT, WITHIN SOUND REASONING, recognize that animals such as chimps, cats, dogs, bears and many species of insect have variations within not only geneses but also within species, yet at the same time believe that there is only one race of human with skin and eye color being the only real differences! The Human Genome Project of the late 1990s was biased thanks to many of the scientists who participated were schooled through most, if not all, of their primary and college educations in fields that had race-denying control vectors, among other things such as people who controlled most of the funding. We need a 2nd Genome project.

    If you actually have a major unironic inclination to believe that you are someone of a different race in the wrong body (such as with the blonde white girl who, since her days in kindergarten, gradually went to depict herself as black up to the point where she identified as a black woman) aka "transracial", you are either a sad fool desperate for attention, or are infected with a brain disorder.

    Super Mario Galaxy's plot actually exists, while Super Mario Galaxy 2's doesn't.
    Meaning, SMG is better for the plot and SMG 2 is better for the gameplay.

    Super Mario Odyssey barely has a plot. (This is why I was kind of hoping for Super Mario Galaxy 3 or something)

    Not sure if it's a popular or unpopular view, but it seems to me that a lot of people think being a contrarian makes them cool.

    "MegaMan Battlenetwork 4" is the best game ever made.

    You fell for it : ). Still I like the game quite a bit, despite the nonsensical story

    The gaming market is an absolute shitshow. It's too crowded with every publisher and their mom looking to create their own storefront... And consumers have become too complacent and are making excuses for it.

    Streaming services are becoming the same. With NBC, Disney and others looking to create their own services it may be more financially feasible and convenient to just go back to Cable or satellite. Unironically.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Pokemon Sword/Shield will be a good game.

    Zelda: LA will get high scores from reputable sources.

    BotW2 won't be better than BotW.

    Nintendo will up fuck the Switch Lite.

    You're going to be so fucking broke in November, you won't have money for Black Friday (US).

    The next season of Family Guy will be horrible, while Bob's Burgers will amazing.

    Finally, most people never put The Sopranos ending together--mainly because you have to know mafia history and watch , which pretty much says,
    "You probably don't even hear it when it happens, right?"

    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were atrocious remakes.
    Not all Gacha games are evil sins against humanity.
    Death Stranding will simply be "ok"

    DOOM: Eternal will be better than nuDoom
    I'd rather watch Star Wars Episode 2 than Episode 1 or any of the Disney sequels.
    Hasbro should have taken away the Transformers directing license from Michael Bay after either Revenge of the Fallen or Dark of the Moon.
    Super Robot Wars should come to the West again.

    If that's what you call the reboot? Then yes. Not an unpopular opinion though. It looks balls to the wall amazing.

    Spider Man may have broken records, but it being a console exclusive is beyond pathetic. Sony needs to get their heads out of their asses.

    Best shantae game is pirate's curse. Even then, shantae games aren't that remarkable. The only reason those games are popular are the potential fan art it fuels people to make of them. Don't @ me. :ninja:

    A suggestive character and theme indeed. It practically draws itself.

    2nd this. If only Way Forward did not soft reboot the entire series, granted I am not sure how they could continue from where Pirate's Curse ended.
