Flagging posts shouldn't be used for disagreement. Can't post now even though I didn't say anything rude or attack fellow members.

These space idiots are gonna get us all blown to smithereens.

It does look awesome, I hope VR goes the distance because it has a lot of gems and great potential for things beyond just gaming, now give me a higher resolution headset.

The emotional response I had when using Google Earth VR is unlike anything I have ever experienced before in technology/gaming.

I always figured there weren't many Vietnam War games because the US lost that war. Most games want the player to win in the end, so having them play as the US would be very strange. You could probably make a game about the Vietnamese people resisting the powerful evil empire as an underdog, but I guess no one needs me to explain the moral outrage that would cause because you would be killing US soldiers. Because as we all know, killing nazi's or any type of non-Western soldiers is just a game, killing a US soldier is a hanging crime.

Describing it as a loss is a little weird. A failure for sure, but I feel like losing a war entails a lot more catastrophic consequences. Like being conquered or something, not losing a little force projection halfway around the world.

Just because America didn't fall under communist control doesn't mean it isn't a loss. I wouldn't say it was a "little force projection" either, considering how many troops the US deployed and how long it lasted for.

To get across how badly the allies/US lost, North Vietnam/enemies had 1/4 of the troops that the allies did, with the US alone contributing more troops than what the commies had. The US also had a much better airforce that underperformed and was beaten out.

@wynnduffy:

The idea that this only goes one way (China and Korea targeting Japan) and only exists in older generations is absurd. Relations are strained all the way around, and there are no shortage of young ultranationalists carrying the same old hatreds, whether it be in China, South Korea, or Japan. The discrimination the zainichi face living in Japan is a very real thing, and it's even worse for Chinese.

Uhm, I don't think you read my post very well so I'll address this clearly.

1) I didn't say it goes one way, that's exactly why I wrote:

I know some Japanese politicians do and say things that are sometimes antagonistic

2) I never said only young people can have anti-Korean/Chinese attitudes, I said the older generation will have more of them. Japan is more open than it used to be and foreign language acquisition has shot up.

I've spent enough time in Japan (moving back soon) among Taiwanese, Korean and Chinese students to get a grasp on their lives there, and the overwhelming amount of Japanese I have met are curious about their neighbours, not prejudiced (although, China is treated with far more scepticism, and it's not undeserved)

3) I never said anything about the zainichi nor did I hint that discrimination doesn't take place. I am well aware of zainichi, actually it was funny you mentioned them because they were the topic of an essay I did last year.

If you take issue with what I said feel free to PM me, I've already typed too much about this in the comments of a Yakuza video.

The racism Tachibana suffered pisses me off so much. I know a half chinese, half japanese person and they still get the same shit he talks about in this game. People in the west only talk about the local racism, because otherwise I wouldn't have known about it.

Centuries of hostility and Japan's actions shortly before and during WW2 can be thanked for that.

Japan has issued so many apologies for comfort women and the acts they committed but South Korea and China seem unwilling to leave it in the past, demanding more remorse and apologies.

All it does is make Japanese people angry, like why do they need to apologise even more than they already have? I know some Japanese politicians do and say things that are sometimes antagonistic, but it's ludicrous to think modern day Japan has anything to do with comfort women or Nanjing... what can more apologies possibly achieve?

With this said, there's a lot of people from these countries living in harmony and enjoying each other's culture. It's the older people and the governments that need to grow up.

It's amazing to think of the progress Germany has made with its image, yet in Asia there's still these calls for Japan to apologise for the Imperial Army. 70+ years later!

I don't think China's antagonistic military operations help matters either, I would also guess that a lot of anti-Chinese (mainland) sentiments spread from Taiwan and Hong Kong across the entire region.

I highly advise people to check out Arizona Sunshine on PC. The PSVR version is absolutely terrible.

@glots said:

Arizona Sunshine, though, holy christ. Looks like something you'd maybe fit on a free sample disc that comes with PSVR, if even that.

The hell are you talking about? It's a great game, especially since they added non-teleport movement.

Was rather creeped out walking through the mines.

Edit: Oh it's the shitty PSVR version, lol, my god that looks so much worse than it does on PC

Alex isn't colour blind. Vinny and Jeff are. Alex has perfect eyesight, actually.

That's what he wants you to think

Come on, Dan, why play video games if you are not going to adapt to the challenge and rise up? That's one of the points - a video game doesn't let you just get through it for free, you don't just turn up and watch like a movie. The combat system of Yakuza is not hard and I don't say that in an elitist sense...it's not going to take much effort to start ripping through the fights

I was playing Yakuza 3 or 4 and late into the game I accidentally saved at a checkpoint with only 10% health (something like that), on hard mode, it took me like 20 attempts to survive the horde of enemies and even I didn't whine this much, and I was starting to think I'd have to restart or quit playing the game!
