Re: Anyone else totally underwhelmed by Cuphead?

Definitely. Take SMB3 for instance—classic game, but you can only play it so many times. But with speedrunning, constantly developing new strategies and trying to beat your personal bests. And they come up with new categories to keep it fresh. And you are right, the speedrunning community is VERY su...

Re: Anyone else totally underwhelmed by Cuphead?

But haven't review rubrics been around since the mid-90's? Different people have different tastes; you're not obligated to like everything critics praise. Might be that critics have played so many games they're looking for something different. That makes a lot of sense. There used to be a ton of pl...

Re: What to buy?

Oh man, I’m in the same boat. Have been working extra lately, with all the extra cash going towards responsible-adult things and stuff and for the family. I rarely buy anything at all for myself. I generally play after 9pm, and would rather have a portable device, so it’s easier to just play on the ...

Re: Anyone else totally underwhelmed by Cuphead?

As promised. I think it’s a unique genre—“platform shumup”?—that isn’t particularly accessible due to its difficulty. They discuss strategy throughout the video.

Side note: I do like the resurgence of hard games again though.

Re: Anyone else totally underwhelmed by Cuphead?

Everything you’ve said is true, but there is certainly some deeper strategy. When I have time, I’ll post a link to a nice speedrun of it.

Re: I hate listening to the news. Anyone else?

What is SWJ movement? I used to enjoy NPR (despite their biases), but much less so these days. I’m not sure if I changed or it did. You meant SJW, more info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_justice_warrior Oh that? That’s been around in one form or another forever. It’s true that because ...

Bloodbourne?

Personally, I loved Roadrash 64, which I believe he gave an F. Oh well, sometimes the Critic is wrong. Haha.

Re: I hate listening to the news. Anyone else?

There’s 2 types of news—the factual, depressing stuff; and the cable news stuff that is 80% gasbags voicing their opinions, some of who don’t have any actual credibility. #1 I can handle by reading online for 10-15 minutes a day....#2 I despise (liberal and conservative alike) and think is responsib...
