I see there's plenty of toadies eagerly lapping up spez' Swiss cheese of an explanation

Was it the reds = fags observation of reality? I enjoyed the taunt

SPEZ: Yes, yes it was. Well done

Huh. It almost sounds like it's setup to be similar to an MMO or mobile gacha game

That being said, I didn't know there was only six characters. Thought they threw in the whole 5 dozen they usually do in other Marvel games. DLC sounded like new game modes or stages or whatever. More characters is great

Anyway. Sounds like it's the typical setup of trying to annoy a player into spending money, but a modicum of self-control defeats that

When you say "unlocking character cards", is that how you "complete" a character, or is that to get more characters?

I admit I didn't read past the first four pages (30 posts per page, had 10 pages overall for me). I'm surprised nobody mentioned "unlocking skins in other ways". I'd rather do a cool thing and get rewarded than grind currency. But I suppose if the cool thing is too hard, buying them is another option

Overall, doesn't sound too bad, then. Options. 22 days is crazy though

What do you define as "no hard sell on mtix"? I just came across a thread on GameFAQs with OP losing his shit over legendary skins being $14 each. Also about either not being able to earn enough in-game currency to unlock all skins for each character (I think?) or it taking 22 days of grinding to complete one character? It's a bit late and these guys type like it's Twitter

I have no interest in this game so I have no horse in this race. Just curious about how accurate this is

My question is "who set up the tomato vending machine?" Was it the devs? Is that a thing players can build? if it was the devs... didn't think that one through too well. Unless the vending machine was just there for unrelated reasons

Feel free to point and laugh if it's explained in this article that I haven't read

I can't help but feel this was bait, what with the driveby comment and no followup. Anyway:

Fucking hell; I clearly have no idea how to get all fancy-like with submissions

Ah, I'd say he's only irritated because it was the biggest sub that criticised transgenderism

Everyone says it's great.

It's definitely really, really good. I'm just not understanding why people call it the GOAT. But I've just hit the final stretch where shit goes off the rails, and have not done the expansions yet

Blizzard is Activision

I did, yes. Basically avoid anything Kotick is involved with. I had a look over Activision's game list and I didn't see anything I had bought or be interested in. I guess there's Sekiro, but no game is worth throwing away principles, and there's plenty of other shit to play

Yeah, I'm just dicking around doing the remaining Velen/Novigrad exploration that I was too shit to do before, and then getting into Hearts of Stone

My family is filled with extremely hard-working, disgustingly intelligent people. Well, the elders anyway; us younger ones are all morons. So over my life, I've learned to be told "no, you're wrong; here's why" many, many times, to the point where I assume that anything I think is wrong, or not fully correct, and to seek clarification. My family and most places I've worked have also been staffed with hyper-competent people

The Mass Effect 3 ending debacle is what clued me in. Journalists and other online presences went after Jack Thompson, and it was funny because he was a backward old guy and edgy humour is funny. Suddenly, these same people turned on passionate fans, upset that a space epic ended with three colours. I honestly still get a little triggered when I see the word "entitled". Suddenly it wasn't so funny, and these people, who were supposed to represent us and speak for us, were definitely not our friends

I watched the Zoe Post stuff go down on GameFAQs. Every time it got nuked, some separate site was linked and I'd go there. It was a shitshow. Then wen things seemed to be setting, the Gamers Are Dead articles dropped and it was on again

I don't know how or when I discovered KiA; I actually didn't know about reddit before then. The earliest memory of KiA I have is when the Ghostbusters 2016 trailers dropped and everyone mocking it and the response to James Rolfe. I do know I had been lurking for quite some time at that point, so I likely found it in autumn 2015

I lurked because I had nothing to add to the conversation; I was there to learn. KiA, both of them (all five of them?) are filled with hideously brainy people, and were able to explain the feeling of wrongness of the internet, the creeping bullshit into gaming, the emotional traps regressives use in their writing, the behaviour and tactics they employ. I was finally able to have explained to me my thoughts on what was going on, and explain it to other people. A lot of the talking points regressives use when talking about GG I was already familiar with; I come from a farming background and am very used to the slander and smears farmers get from city folk and animal activists. Or even the general derision country people get about being backward; modern farming is (overly) computerised and mechanised these days! You can do six year courses at university about farming!

Then some guy asked about The Last Airbender/Korra and because I know more about those than real life, I jumped in to explain how Korra was a shit addition but good standalone product that wasn't necessarily woke within the show. And it's all been downhill from there. Haven't participated this much in an internet community since the ForumPlanet days

I do declare that GG and KiA sounds like some certified autistic faggotry

Let's carry on

Huh. That makes a lot of sense

I found Ciri, did the battle and now we're branching out to Do Shit About It. I understand that I'm about 75% done, and this is where shit goes off the rails. So I might be a bit unfair to the game

Still, though. Nier: Automata and Hollow Knight have hit me harder. I was really excited to meet Yennefer and Ciri, so maybe I just hyped myself too hard

Witcher 3. I boycott Blizzard and anything EA without question. Devs who shit on their fanbase get excluded too

Did you get punted from KiA2?

Still working on Witcher 3. I blew through 1, 2 and 250 hours on 3 without feeling the fatigue, but it's beginning to creep in. Unless I'm juust putting off finishing it because I don't want the adventure to end? But I find that hard to believe; it is a really, really good game, but I dunno why so many people cite it as the GOAT
