Re: 2019/12/14: Sega CD: Batman Returns

Typo: "momentus". There's also an undesirable echo in having "nearly-indestructible" and "nearly ruins the fun" together in one sentence. (I'm pretty sure that the "beauty queen" who falls off the building is supposed to be the Ice Princess from the movie, eve...

Hell yeah. I'll read it right now.

Re: Did Gleamlight rip off Hollow Knight?

It doesn't look particularly imaginative, but indie games have been using that moody, bloomy, parallax-laden art style for ages. Aquaria looks like that and came out in 2007. Capsized had an edgy, sci-fi take on that look in 2011. Knytt Underground did it with silhouettes in 2012. Being a console ga...

Re: Microsoft naming fails

Don't forget that there's already an "Xbox One X".

Feels like a good time to share this classic. (Enable the music for maximum effect.)

Re: What's the coolest thing you've ever done in a videogame?

Probably doing some really cool move in Melee and KOing the other guy when he thought he was going to beat me. Hard to think of specific examples, but everyone knows the feeling. The single-player equivalent would be doing some kind of crazy sequence break or going out of bounds, putting one over on...

Re: 2019/12/3: NES: Shinobi, Gun-Nac

I don't see why it shouldn't follow the "may contain" format of the other animal icons.

Re: The Problem with Soulslike Games.

I can understand that, but I still think there's something there. If they're deliberately mimicking another game's style, then they have every right to make deviations to make their game more than just a clone. The complete description I used was "too narrowly specific and too vague in its spe...

Re: The Problem with Soulslike Games.

I disagree. The Souls series is anything but narrow. It might not seem like it to new players, but the extent of the options it gives you is staggeringly huge. Even if Nioh and Code Vein had just been Dark Souls with fewer options, I probably would have liked them just fine. This is precisely what ...

Re: The Problem with Soulslike Games.

But here's the weird thing: I don't know if this is my fault or theirs. You're looking for something too narrowly specific and too vague in its specificities for them to make in the first place. It's not even a matter of liking "Souls-likes made by From Software" because you gave up on Se...
