Giant Bomb |OT32| I've been meaning to love a boat

I bet Human Trashcan isn't even your real name, you stole it off someone in WWII!

For the record, I didn't think you actually looked up to Don, it was more that I saw your post and it made me think "damn, there's probably some fucked up weirdos that actually do idolize him."
It was Korea actually

and yeah I mean there's a sizable portion of the audience that thought Walt was the hero of Breaking Bad.

but are they worth it for you know what
Not really either.

I never get people who buy eroges just to wank to though. It's like the most inefficient medium to get to what you want.

I feel like it's the same people who watch the actual set up in porn movies instead of skipping straight to the action.

Also it's interactive so you have to split your attention and do something to get it instead of just watching and going to town
 
it's why i think katawa shoujo is still the funniest and best trick anybody ever played on 4chan

devs tricked them into playing something they thought would be awful and then hit them with EMOTIONS and FEELINGS

I mean, 50 shades of grey is one of the best selling books ever. People like reading shitty porn, apparently.

Battle lines will be drawn. On one side: Jeff, and maybe Brad? On the other side: Everyone else.

Yeah I mean there's actual H-games out there without the pretense of story. Get straight to what you want.

Still need to play that. I'm reading one right now where it's less about emotions and feelings and more about... 19th century plays, wittgenstein language philosophy and the black swan theory?

I guess. I thought 50 shades kinda gets to the point though?

I have no real problem with erotica as a genre but most eroges are just really bad erotica.

i don't really know if KS holds up by itself without the expectations you have going in, knowing that it was developed by a bunch of randos who lurked /vg/ or whatever, and how it really subverts your expectations. You think it'd be huniepop-tier but actually it's kinda just really good. Wildly inconsistent though.
 
Ok that's even crazier.
Mind you, I don't do this with generic Hollywood porn or similar (I rarely watch that stuff to begin with). But we're getting a bit off topic here, so I'll switch subjects..

I watched the PAX Rumble and it was great! Nice that they didn't keep having technical issues, and it was great to see pretty much everyone play a character. We've come a long way since the first ones!

RIP Professa Killah
 
Fireboylt with me.
Goddamn it
just applied for the new video position. wish me luck duders 😰
Best of luck! Hopefully you'll make it but if not at least you tried.
Lookin forward to it. The game arrived but I won't be able to play it until the weekend so, looking forward to seeing and hearing more about the game from Jeff and co.

GOTY time best time.
 
on one hand pubg is worldwide phenomenon and it makes sense to include it in the favoring for goty list with how much time everyone has spent with it

on the other hand i'm not sure how to feel about the precedent of adding early access games to goty... if a game is good but unfinished it should prob still count. but I do like the idea of only evaluating a finished product.. though games are never really 'finished'
 
In general, it is in games' best interest that Early Access not qualify for the list. They should want their release to be a statement of "this should be considered a complete product."

I'm in favor of a dedicated Early Access category.
 
If a game is good enough to be considered in the running for GOTY DESPITE being early access, that is nothing if not an incredibly strong argument in favor of including it.

And again: it's all arbitrary. You could call Destiny 2 early access if you wanted. That game will see significant changes and additions throughout its life. It doesn't mean anything.
 
I mean, what other early access game can even qualify to make it a category?
There is no shortage of early access games, they just don't play them (and I don't blame them).

It's not arbitrary, though. There is no ambiguity as to when a game claims it's early access. No Man's Sky should have been and certainly felt like it, but that's on them.

Destiny 1 got into the top 10 and was less complete than PUBG is today.
