    Im merely jesting and couldnt resist the opening

    Haha! Good. It helps lighten up the thread. Last thing I want is a flame war. *Prays that AngryLittleAlchemist doesn't come in and take the thread super seriously*

    Why do you spend 80% of your time on this site talking about things you do not understand? This is a pattern.

    I linked to 5 sources stating what DRM is. None of them agreed with Pemalite, Chazore, or Conina. I suggest you take a course in info lit.

    on 17 September 2018

    See, how do you even know I'm talking about that specific subject? Or that I agree with Pemalite, or Chazore, or Conina? Oh wait, you don't.

    So you're back to the stupid old "info lit" meme? That's basically the same thing as when you said I should take a class in analysis. Boring.

    I'm just saying it's clear to anyone that you spend most of your time on this site purposely attacking subjects that everyone knows that you are ignorant on. It seems purposeful since people point that out to you all the time, but you don' t listen. Just like now, where you think suggesting a course is somehow a great defense.

    I literally do not care at all about the DRM argument. I just see this pattern and it's headache inducing.

    on 17 September 2018

    Examples then?

    on 17 September 2018

    Any argument you've ever been in, many of which involved me. Except the DRM one because I haven't caught up on it yet.

    on 17 September 2018

    For example I think even you can admit that your thread about "big switch games" was a fucking disaster and your criteria was very slippery.

    Your steam thread was very misleading and honestly it's weird to me that even whilst you're thinking of building a PC you still have an extremely clear bias against the platform.

    Your idea about metacritic scores have literally become a meme, both on the site and off it.

    Half your arguments consist of a "Only the games I like count" mentality, which honestly makes sense in certain circumstances, but you abuse it to the point it runs dry.

    And your fetishistic ideas of indie games while hating on titles like PUBG is incredibly ironic.

    If you just had a change of heart for all of these that'd be one thing, no one would care. But you are so adamant on arguing points that people deconstruct time and time again. It is just odd.

    on 17 September 2018

    I'll give you the steam thread, and the big games thread. Both were flawed. The steam thread relied on faulty information. The thread on big Nintendo games had to do with my personal disappointment in Nintendo's E3, but instead of just stating that I tried to make it about the number of quality games according to review aggregates.

    Reviewers are usually right, when you add up all their opinions together into an aggregate. If a system of user-reviews were able to weed out the trolls, the inexperienced, and the easily pleased then they'd be pretty accurate too. In the end review aggregates are just user-reviews, with a bit of self policing, in effect. And to further keep things accurate I use Opencritic with a custom list of trusted reviewers, set to give me personalized scores.

    But I don't always buy or not buy a game based solely on scores. I won't touch Destiny 2 with a ten foot pole, but am probably going to pick up labyrinth of refrain. RDR2 is a game that I'm waiting on due to all the MTS in it, but I picked up Ever Oasis on the first day it came out.

    But anyway, I feel like critic review aggregates aren't absolute indicators of a game's quality. It's more like they are a representation of a probability of being good. But that's for another thread, that I'll make later on down the road. Needs Venn diagrams and stuff.

    Fetishistic ideas about Indie games? Not sure what you mean. Unless you mean, that I really love Indie games. But PUBG isn't an Indie game. Bluehole made MMOs and other stuff long before they did PUBG. They have been a huge corp long before PUBG came out. I hate PUBG, because its an asset flip that has become ridiculously popular.It abused Early Access, and is only popular because of course it is a military FPS.

    The only the games I like mentality sounds the same as the putting trust in reviewers thing you mentioned above.

    To be honest I watched Norm Macdonald has a show, came back, talked on discord, then completely forgot why I even wanted to argue in the first place with you lol. It's whatevz. You're allowed your own opinion, sorry for trying to change who you are.

    VGC wouldn't let me share the link in the article so here it is. https://www.resetera.com/threads/npd-march-2018-far-cry-5-1-sea-of-thieves-2-ps4-tops-hardware-charts.38373/page-14#post-7176224

    That's a thread. Not sure what I'm looking for... Do you have confirmation from MS or some gaming site that it sold all that in digital sales?

    on 02 August 2018

    Look at post #692. He's an indsider that has access to game sales.

    on 02 August 2018

    C'mon man. An anonymous message board guy saying that Halo Wars 2 sold more in digital isn't really good evidence, that SoT sold a an extra 500,000 digital.

    There. I found it. So yeah, they've sold 2 million. Sorry if vgchartz' numbers were wrong.

    on 02 August 2018

    Just to elaborate further. Do you really think Nintendo can make one console game, with the same amount of work that it takes to make a handheld game? Of course they can't. Console games take ten times as much work as a 3DS title. So handheld games would have been useless for predicting Nintendo's future yearly output.

    So to recap.

    Smash: Spawned a lasting, critically acclaimed series, should have gotten higher if not for reviews posted years later, and sold well.

    Wii Sports: Spawned a series that didn't last, and didn't sell well at all, because giving your game away =/= selling your game.

    Trump's new tariff proposals include a 25% tax on video game consoles

    We wouldn't need a trade war if we went back to being the well oiled mixed economy we were in the 50's, and 60's. It was a mix of government and capitalism at its best. The government regulated industries, and funded research that few corporations would bother with (due to a high risk to profit ratio, or no profits for decades). Then once the research was complete the government would give this...

    Bandorr said: Sounds like Lydia should be a no go. But could be replaced by the original trilogy which I know is also on the Switch.  I'd start with the original so it is still really two choices. That was helpful though. A little too helpful heh. The original Trilogy is on Switch? You mean the original Arland Trilogy right? Or is there some Atelier game on Switch I'm not...

    Anybody else interested in getting this? It's hardly been reviewed, but most are fairly positive. It's sitting at 80 on Opencritic, and is part four of the Arland series. ...
