    Pay to win versions are even worse. Any teamwork and tactics go completely out the window.

    At the very least, the current iteration of FPS shooter, which is the modern military variety of "gritty realism" and weapon sidegrades that don't offer much in the way of different play styles beyond minor stat tweaks.

    I remember Bulletstorm's marketing campaign taking the piss at this with their Call of Duty parody.

    Game journalism is going down the drain.

    Take Polygon's "gameplay" of the newest DOOM game, as a recent example. The fuck kind of "gameplay" is this? It looks like the player playing it is completely new to games not to mention FPS games. Barely moves and shoots at the same time, often even missing, despite being in the monster's face. Seriously. It's like the one playing was missing both his/her arms and was playing with his/her tongue or something.

    You can clearly see he/she are completely new to gaming in general by the video. Now, here's the thing: You don't review a book when you are illiterate do you? So why are you reviewing games when you suck at playing them or don't even have any experience with them in general?

    Answer: You don't. And yet..

    Polygon video in question:


    I could write about Hollywood and it going down the drain too, but meh. Too lazy.

    Dean Takahashi's Cuphead gameplay was even more shameful than the Doom gameplay tbh.

    In all seriousness, it's a run n gun platformer with 1930's rubberhose animation, and if I had not made it evident, I like it a fair bit.

    Uhhh.... You do know that if nukes are launched at North Korea, they WILL retaliate. Would you really want to see Los Angeles or New York City nuked?

    California is going downhill--quickly. Hell, I don't even know if that's an unpopular opinion anymore.

    They're the reason we have warning labels on everything. Well, them and Florida too.

    That's a fact long-known, but have you seen the state of the state now?

    Oh yes. It was outright insulting. I used DOOM because the franchise is known by a lot of people.

    And now these fuckers want to make games easier because they suck at them.

    ....I have seen some of the more recent crap coming out of California. Lets just say I am glad I live in Europe.

    I'd be hard-pressed to see North Korea reach LA, let alone NYC, with their current ICBMs. Maybe some Alaskan town at the furthest, but that'd be a waste of a nuke as is.

    In truth, they present a nuclear risk akin to that of Pakistan, which for all their sabre-rattling is a rather localized problem limited to neighbouring countries. Of course, unlike Pakistan, North Korea's immediate nuclear shadow doesn't fall on a neighbouring nuclear power but rather on a handful of non-nuclear nations, backed by a distant nuclear power that vastly outreaches them for the time being.

    I thus find it more plausible at this point in time that a North Korean "second-strike" retaliation won't involve nuking the US, but rather South Korea and Japan instead. This is actually more worrisome, as it would result in a much higher body count than a direct retaliation against the US, and it stands within reason that both South Korea and Japan, who I'd expect to be aware of this threat, would consider the development of adequate anti-missile defenses to be in their best interests for survival.

    Might want to look into the militarized Taepodong-3 system. It's more than capable of hitting both coasts, if we just watched it fly. Still, I wouldn't worry about it given flight times, and subsequent time to intercept with a variety of tactics.

    More like a simple statement of fact. This state is too big IMO. We should have long ago split into Northern & Southern California (maybe Central CA too!)

    Current console gaming is a walking joke compared to PC gaming. It takes a 1050ti/i3/8GB specd rig to game at 1080p60 at better settings. More games are skipping them instead of butchering them to work on consoles.
