    (Some) Streamers Are The Worst

    In other news, looks like PewDiePie has decided to drop any pretence that he's not a nazi. http://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/youtubes-biggest-personality-promoted-an-anti-semite/

    Doom - 25 years old today

    Me and some friends got in trouble for installing it on a computer in the college library.

    I wasn’t a fan of RTD’s writing, but credit where credit is due as a show runner. He took a show that considered a bit of a national joke at the time and in a genre the beeb wasn’t used to making anymore, revived it, turned it into the channels flagship show. Pumped out 3 series and Christmas Specials on schedule and then a bunch of specials to ease the transition period. Not to mention producing two spin-off series under his watch as well. I don’t why it’s been such a clusterfuck since he left in terms of actually making the thing. With Moffat the common theory was that he had too many other projects, but this is Chibnall’s only gig.

    Imagine getting in the DeLorean and telling this thread a few years ago that the only decent GB content coming out was a Dragonball Z podcast,

    (Some) Streamers Are The Worst

    I'll save you all some time. Start of video - “I don't think ever hitting someone is justified, however...” - first klaxons start going off. The 'however' in this case is that the guy in the video who can't go more than 5 seconds without saying 'bro' and uses the term 'Social Justice Warriors' unironically is angry that the guy who posted the original video didn't show that the guy was actually defending himself. What was he defending himself from? It looks like she threw a flimsy bit of cardboard at him a little bit before he got up and hit her. Then he goes off on one about evil wimmin who drive good men over the edge. Then lots of maybe both sides are actually in the wrong and we should meet in the middle, so beloved of mentally stunted arseholes on the internet.
  6. As you all know we live in the brave new world where watching streams of games is almost (if not more) popular than playing the damn things. I find streamers perversely facscinating. It's as if a genie appeared one day to someone with no usual transferable skills and said 'Hey master, I can make you a millionaire, all you have to do is play your favourite game on camera and just try not to say racist/mysogynist/homophobic things'. Pretty good deal right? Shame most of them can’t even manage that bare minimum. Usually they just end up screaming the N-word when they get shot or decide to go into a rant about how feminazis are taking over the world halfway through a game of Fortnite. This winner decided to take it one step further and actually capture himself physically assaulting his partner live. Why? For the cardinal crime of interrupting him while playing his vidya game. Warning, the video is pretty disturbing. Nice of him to record all the evidence the courts will need though.

    That’s quite the thing to reference in your cheerful all-ages fighting game Nintendo.

    If anyone's wondering about how seriously EA are taking the T&Cs blurb they make you click, they closed a guy who was streaming the Alpha's Origin account, losing his entire Origin game library in the process. He was an absolute dumbass for streaming it, but blimey. Makes you realise how fragile your digital game library is. Also if you don't want to see corporate cheerleaders dancing in glee about a megacorp 'winning' then don’t check out the Resetera thread on it. https://www.resetera.com/threads/streamer-breaks-anthem-nda-loses-entire-origin-library-while-recording.85955/
  11. Thank god, they're giving the choice. I'm not a dub/sub snob, and generally I'll go with the dub in my native language for most games. But these games are just so Japanese that a English dub won't feel any less wrong than it did when you had Mark Hamill doing his Joker voice for Majima.
  12. I don’t think I've updated the title since I started the thread way back when, someone else has been doing it. I'll update it if you want though.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    Why are we not all talking about Thanos' bitchin' scarecrow?
  14. The Game of the Year A1. Yakuza Kiwami 2 A2. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (kinda wish I could count these two as one game) A3. Spider-Man A4. God of War A5. Red Dead Redemption 2  Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. Fallout 76 - I'll level with you I haven’t even played it, but it has to go here doesn’t it, Z2. Shadow of the Tomb Raider - was hoping Square-Enix might turnaround the franchise with this entry, but another dull entry that's just more of the world's most bored sounding adventurer as she spends more her gap year brutally slitting throats between picking herbs and the 8 billion other meaningless collectables on the map. Z3. Vampyr - a game where you play a vampire on the gloomy streets of turn of the century London, full of moral dilemmas, from the makers of Life is Strange? Sign me up. Unfortunately the result was a jankyfest that felt like it fell through a portal from the Xbox 360 launch period. I could look past its failings if the writing was good, but it wasn’t and the sheer amount of awful combat you had to endure to play story bits was the final nail in the coffin. Z4. PlayStation Classic - all you had to do was copy Nintendo here Sony, that's all you had to do and you couldn’t even manage that. Z5. Octopath Traveller - controversial, but I'm including this. I can see subjectively see how it's a good game. But I'm putting it in as as a personal disappointment as despite loving this kind of game back in the day, it drove home I no longer have the time/patience for stuff like random battles and a lot of the classic tropes of the JRPG genre anymore. Sound Design of the Year S1. Red Dead Redemption 2 S2. God of War - purely on the grounds of how consistently satisfying the whoosh/think of flinging the axe was. S3. Detroit: Become Human - probably the only time you'll see me put a David Cahe game in a best of list. Visual Design of the Year V1. DragonBall FighterZ V2. Shadow of the Collusus V3. Spider-Man Writing of the Year W1. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life - hard to pick between this and Kiwami 2 for me, but 6 pipped it for some of the Onomichi stuff and the ending which a decade me get something in my eye. W2. Spider-Man - captured the pure spirit of the wallcrawler better that any other Spidey media project of recent times for me ( I haven’t seen Into the Spiderverse yet though) W3. Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. PS4 - stellar year of exclusives for the PS4 this late in its lifespan  Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Sony - see above answer Best Supported Game (released pre 2018) of the Year B1. Fortnite - Epic are doing an absolutely terrific job of supporting the game and adding a constant stream of substantial updates. Log in, oh look now you can fly planes! Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2017 or earlier) X1. Fortnite Best game character of the year C1. Kazama Kiryu C2. Goro Majima C3. Spider-Cop

    I'd wager Hawkeye's dumb wife got dusted by the Space Farmer Supreme, he better not spend the whole film a-bloo-blooming about it though.
