@sparky_buzzsaw: no problem man!
looks like this is Moon's page Sparky https://www.giantbomb.com/moon/3030-11046/(lists a NSW release)
Think ya'll could have skipped this one if the hatred for the franchise/game was so bad.
That's exactly why they shouldn't skip itQuick Looks aren't ads, they are honest first impressions
@bobafettjm: Thanks man!had no idea you could put something like retroarch on dedicated hardware like thatfwiw I think you are making the right call re: Bless Unchained. BU strikes me as pretty good but I felt Y0 was special
@bobafettjm: hey man, was just checking into look at your listholy moly you've touched a lot of stuff this year!How does the retroachievements thing work? Seems like you are getting to play a lot of really obscure old stuff that wayalso how is Bless Unchained? I liked what I played at PAX but it's not on a platform I have access to
Nevermind the United States' launch and grisly history of white men murdering members of minority groups by dragging them from the backs of vehicles
Yeaaaahhh, I couldn't put my finger on it what bothered me about this game back in the day. But this is it.
I'll give TwistedPixel the benefit of the doubt and guess they didn't consider this angle, but it' still not a good look. Something that's only compounded by the continuing extreme lack of playable Hispanic protagonists in games...
brutal take down of the game and deserved
Thank you, thank you for saying this.Agreed 100%I don't suspect it matters to a lot of people, but PS3 digital BC is make or break with me with the PS5
This is the wrong takeaway of course, but this makes me actually regret not playing it
Sometimes a year scraped together a number of wins by the slimmest margins, so I would prioritize that lower compared to a year that had the same number of wins, but its wins were more clear. Numbers-wise I could kind of make this comparison based on "average rank" across its seeds. For a given year, each of its 5 seeds was ranked in a list of 29 games, and you can basically average those 5 ranks to get a sense of how consistently strong a year was. Again, it's all a bit fuzzy, and the margins on all of this were incredibly slim. And ultimately there were still at least 3 or so spots where I just had to go with my gut on the exact ordering, as no amount of looking at "data" would give me a perfect answer....
Got it, So "Margin of Victory" and the "Eye Test" served as tiebreaker criteria along with "average rank". Not unlike how College Football considers this stuff for the CFP. Makes sense given your sports background and the RR format.
Makes Sense to me that you'd need to do a sanity check and over rule the bracket occasionally given this.
Java might as well be Greek to me, so it still sounds impressive to me haha
Cool beans, thanks again! The reason I've asked is I figure I'd like to try my hand at using your methodology and I want to make sure I use it as consistently to how you applied before I do my own variant I've been toying with for 2-3 years very sporadically.
I'll enjoy doing it and I figure you might enjoy seeing somebody else's list using your criteria. Might just be us two! but hey that's enough for me haha
Hey I'm half way there with you, I really like Gladius ta least :)
Thanks so much man, that's very helpful!
Interesting, seems structured kinda like a round robin tennis tournament. With the way it's focused on total number of wins in a round.
I actually wrote a quick program
a formula in excel or another spreadsheet app?
So what served as your tiebreaker system?
Use your keyboard!
