    We Need A More Mature Spider-Man Movie

    in Movies Discussion 1 hour ago

    Snoorlax said: danasider said: Also, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse should be in the poll. It's the best Spider-Man movie, imho, but it doesn't get the type of attention, because it's animated, and it's main protagonist is not the original Spider-Man (although his relationship with the Peter Parker iteration is central to the plot so we get the best of both worlds). Blows away...

    We Need A More Mature Spider-Man Movie

    in Movies Discussion 18 hours ago

    After seeing screenshots for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I checked the movie out. I wasn't only pleasantly surprised, but I was blown away. If they made the MCU Spider-Man with this combination of heart, action, charm, and freshness, I could be behind a young Spider-Man. But now, I am pretty much sick of the reboots and high school stories. Also, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse...

    What happened to Sports games?

    in Gaming Discussion 1 day ago

    I think as the average gamer age went up, the expectation of sim like sports games became more prevalent. And when companies got the sole right to make a league's sport, all the players were consolidated. Just look at the numbers for Madden, 2k, Fifa, etc. They sell a crap load each year (with secondary games for soccer doing pretty good too, and a mix of results coming from other sports games...

    What was the Greatest Launch Title of all Time?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 July 2019

    I get that BoTW is probably the best game on the list, but in terms of a launch title, its impact is nowhere near what SM64 accomplished. I lived through both launches. It's not even comparable. So the conundrum is what do we measure "Greatest" by? The best game on the list or the launch title that had most impact. I gotta give it to SM64, because after that game, everything changed. ...

    Why haven't they made this obvious game yet?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 April 2019

    Why haven't they made a good Superman game yet? I'm not even being sarcastic. I know the answer for the most part...bad history with Superman 64, hard to develop a game for super hero that is basically a god, and the DC extended universe (games and movies) have played second fiddle to Marvel for years now. But with the right developer (take Insomniac and how they pulled off Spider-Man), we...

    Is the market ready for a $500 console yet?

    Zkuq said: It's pretty interesting to see this thread just shortly after seeing a discussion (elsewhere) where people were seriously almost demanding and defending a $700 launch price. I'm sure there is a group of people who would rather pay more money so that the tech used in the next generation of consoles isn't so far behind. That's a fair stance, except that in order for...

    Is the market ready for a $500 console yet?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 April 2019

    People may make bad comparisons and ignore inflation in some situations. But when purchasing people don't go straight for comparison of previous system plus inflation, they compare to other items they are buying at that period. That is why NES @100, SNES @ 200, PS1 @299, PS4 @ 399 and PS5 @499 could be considered reasonable prices at the time they launched even if PS4 is 4 time more...

I found Ace 2 more inconsistant, with the worst elements of it being the lame recycling of old jokes and catchphrases from the first movie.

    Should video games play themselves (easy mode for Sekerio?)

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 April 2019

    Another thing people don't realize when they say that adding an easy mode doesn't hurt the game is that development time is a resource.From Software dedicated a lot of time and effort to refine the feel of the game, so adding a different difficulty level isn't as simple as changing some values to make enemies hit softer or your character hit harder. Some people are happy with this and maybe more...

    KLAMarine said: It's NEVER a bad thing to have more options. Depends on who you're asking. If you told Picasso to straighten out the eyes in one of his Cubism portraits to make it easier for the viewer to understand what they are seeing, I am sure he'd be offended.

    Should video games play themselves (easy mode for Sekerio?)

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 April 2019

    This debate always comes around whenever a From Software game is released, and I always have the same answer. It should have an easy mode only if the developers believe it should. If they are tailoring the experience to be a certain way and they believe an easy mode doesn't fit their vision (which I suspect it doesn't), then people should get over it and move onto one of the dozens of other...

    What do you say to judgmental people that say Superhero films are for kids ?

    in General Discussion on 09 April 2019

    In general, I don't really care about what other people think when categorizing and criticizing movies and movie genres. If someone believes that superhero movies are for children, more power to them. In the case of the OP where someone actually brought it up to you, if I were in your shoes, I'd probably just ask your coworker the question "Why do you care?" He's annoyed that people are...

    Are games as good as they used to be?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 April 2019

    I mostly agree with what others have said. As a kid, we had smaller frames of reference and the freshness of these new experiences offered wow moments that are difficult to capture in the evolved yet more polished experiences of today. That said, Bloodborne was a current gen game (the only one to be honest) that gave me the same sense of wonder, enjoyment and satisfaction that I had when I was...
