Online only gaming, microtransations, loot boxes, multiplayer focused gaming and toxic gaming culture have ruined games for me.

Achievements not so much.

If I've played a 40 hour game for 10 hours and those 10 hours were total dogshit, then I feel safe saying it's a bad video game.

God, don't even try.

I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but I'm going to be a buzzkill. Online media? It's a shitshow and not even worth the effort. If you're lucky, you'll make a living making someone else a fortune.

Nintendo can go fuck themselves if they don't make enough of these.

After this debacle they should just announce it won't be limited run. I have no problems waiting months to get one as long as I actually get one. This is idiotic, hurtful and bad business. I would love to play Yoshi's Island again on some official hardware, but if not, I'll just fucking emulate all their old games from now on. Fuck them.

I know that there was a lot of backlash from certain people that find the idea of a game about feminism and PC-culture going too far simply unbearable, but it sounds like a really interesting topic to tackle.

This is not what the game is about. The creator even states on Twitter, “In no way is The Last Night a game against feminism or any form of equality."

Ahem,

"In 2014, Soret wrote that The Last Night “takes place in a cyberpunk world where modern feminism won instead of egalitarianism,” appending the Gamergate hashtag. Around the same time, he claimed the game would show “the dangers of extreme progressivism,” and inquired about the possibility of using Gamergate mascot Vivian James in the game."

Yes it is.

I met a guy online for drinks.

We talked about hobbies. I said I loved to go dancing. He said he hated dancing.

I said I love rock music. He said he hated rock music.

I told him my favorite movie is Gremlins. He laughed and said I had bad taste.

Without saying anything, I paid for my drink, got up and left. Then I went across the street to a dance club, danced for two hours and then got laid. So I guess it was a good night overall.

No thanks, I have Beck for rap rock.

Say what huh

I've been writing about music since before most of the people reading this thread could read, so I'm not going to engage in a lengthy debate about genre crossover and naming conventions in popular music. However, the term "rap rock" has been, since the 1990s, associated with a heavy metal/rap combination that itself is associated with acts like Limp Bizkit, Kid Rock and Linkin Park.

Beck is a multi-faceted performer who often combines funk, electronic music, rock and other genres into his own unique sound. And just as often abandons it all for a mostly acoustic folk rock sound.

To call Beck's music "rap rock" is wildly inaccurate and, well, just kinda wrong. It's not.

And Linkin Park sucked in 2001. They suck now. They just found new and exciting ways to suck. This entire discussion reminds me of when people would whine that Avril Lavinge "sold out" like there was a moment where she wasn't pre-fab pop garbage. Kudos to Linkin Park for keeping it up as long as they did though. Here's to their inevitable show at the 2020 Ohio State Fair.
