I'm pretty sure the trolls aren't what makes Dota2 popular. They just come packaged with an otherwise great game. You either have to learn to live with it or stop playing. Doesn't make it any less annoying though.

The community is one aspect some players enjoy even though the gameplay is the reason everyone is there. Besides, for how toxic things can get in a match there's good people playing too.

I don't really mind people getting angry in a match personally since that's something that's in pretty much any online game.

I put roughly 10+ or so hours into it the first time around and didn't like it. Whats misguided about that?

The game gives off a bad impression of itself at first. You have to put a considerable amount of time before getting to the parts where the gameplay gets interesting. There's optional battles in where I didn't expected to put things like timing and strategy in practice in the way they were asking at that point in the game.

I at least found those parts cool for what they were. Dunno how your experience is gonna be though.

See, this is what's so annoying about the way you discuss this topic.  You keep trying to stick words in people's mouths that they never even came close to saying.  Too Japanese?  Really?  Who said this?  Who said anything like this?  Stop making these strawmen.

...I know nobody said that here. I was talking more in a broad sense in that post, not only to people here.

Remember how I said that my comments about FF get badly interpreted in the tone I want them to get across? Yeah, that's what happened here again.

@Agent D.: One of these days I am gonna leave this place. I came back to keep in check mah threads dawg. :P

The whole thing with FF is simple. Things are not as terrible as some of you might go on about, and my view on this is how exaggerated the whole deal got that most people fall in a hole of negativity for how SQEX handled the whole thing with the public (and they know that by the way).

Now, should we all feel bad for what we said in the past? (regarding shenanigans in XIII threads here) No.

From the entire thing I learned that people hate XIII because of how SQEX handled the project and the game itself for being way too Japanese for its own good, that's something nowadays doesn't fly too much given the kind of stuff we consume in the West.

I've personally enjoyed (but not loved) my time with the XIII series because I give myself the time to understand why the game ended up being the way it was by reading a lot of stuff about the development of XIII.

And yeah, that's all can say about this...

I'm still not sold on a PS4 or PSN+

As I see it, you don't really want one for any reason. No matter how compelling that reason may be.

In the last few months I've been overwhelmed by the amount of titles that I'm looking forward on PS4.

That's good for you, but I think his reasons are clearly stated as to why they aren't compelling to him. You don't have to talk like he's just being contrarian simply because he doesn't see things the way you do...

Well, in any case I feel that in the end there will be something specific in the future on PS4 that interests him. Or maybe not. I'm not him to know that after all. :T

PSN+ 2/10 would not bang. Im not sure that at this point the benefits outweigh the costs for me. Im kind of also a bit set in my ways as far as what genres im willing to dive into so the freebies probably wont do anything other than distract me from the games i already want to get to.

PS+ is a double-edged sword if you are the type of person who knows what you enjoy the most.

Still, you can get value out of it if you are in the mood to try something different.

Oh ffs quit beinc a whiny dingus and being a martyr, defend your opinion like your a man and not a wimpering 2 year old crying for mommy.

Edit: I really shouldn't type in anger on my cracked cellphone, nothing comes out right...

Haha. I was fucking around with that last post.

However, a lot of the comments I've made related to FF before have been interpreted in a different tone here of how I actually wanted those messages to get across, and that generated some shenanigans that in most cases I ended up just going with the flow of things (which also caused more shenanigans). By now that whole thing is like, whatever to me. *shrug*

Is funny to me though how you think I'm a hardcore SQEX fan and I have all of their games. I see why you think that but you are twisting reality by coming to that conclusion.

I prefer comically negative to personal attacks.
Just go look at the New Game Journal.
At which point will the game be old enough that you'll finally stop reacting to anything about it?

The only thing that needs to change is your inability to deal with people not liking the shiny turds of Square Enix. Seriously, no one can even remotely comment negatively about a fucking spelling error without you freaking out and calling us a bunch of fucking hateful neogaf asshole reject shits. Dude, not everyone is eating their crap with a smile, get over it.

There's a misunderstanding here going on. But it's fine. I'll go away since I can't really make my point clear enough without making someone mad for whatever reason.

Can someone ban my account please? :)

New Details for Resident Evil Revelations 2 were posted yesterday.

On paper it sounds a heck of a lot more exciting that the first one ever did.
68  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: kotaku article on what FFXV means to the future of JRPGs... on: September 07, 2014, 04:31:29 PM
If square enix rolled over and declared bankruptcy tomorrow and no FF game were ever made again, consoles would not change at all. The FF series hasn't been a system seller in almost 15 years. Your innane fanboy love of the series aside, my comment is true. It means almost nothing to consoles these days, sorry to say.

...? You're being dense for no reason.

And I don't know what you are going on about with the fanboy comment. I guess unless one is comically negative, you are not allowed to talk about anything related to SQEX, because... fuck me? Ha. C'mon now, this kind of attitude has to change at one point.

I get that people is angry at SQEX but you don't have to be stupid about it. I mean, I thought this forum was better than that at least.

this recent editorial by Jason Schreier is still pretty thought provoking.

Jason Schreier is full of crap man. This "article" reads like its made for the more jaded part of the FF community on NeoGAF if anything.

the fact that final fantasy means dick squat to consoles these days....

Eh? The article mainly mentioned FF establishing trends for the JRPG genre and everyone else following them. Which is something that's half-true.

And XV on consoles is a pretty big deal. It has always been really. You feeling shitty (or not) towards FF is a different topic.

I see that there is already a (3 year old) thread about it, but I'd just like to re-iterate that Now and Then, Here and There is probably the best Anime this side of Cowboy Bebop.  It starts out lighthearted and then takes one of those From Dusk til Dawn style out of nowhere mood shifts a few eps in.  It goes from "lolz school bullies..womp wommmmmp" to "holy shit all those children just got murdered and I'm pretty sure that one girl got raped every day for months on end".  Brilliant brillaint stuff.

It wasn't smart of me seeing that series in the span of one or two days with depression years ago. That said, it was still an interesting series that I manage to appreciate the value of what it was doing.

You are sort of complaining about MOBAs being MOBAs...

That's exactly what I'm doing.

Complaining about a genre for what makes it popular I see it as that joke from The Simpsons of the "Old man yells at cloud".

I'm sure I've done that before myself with the Sports genre. :p

This world definitely needs more cool Snowboarding games though.

Platinum? I never even bothered to beat the game. That's why I'm even considering a revisit in the first place :)

I thought you were too busy being way too misguidedly annoyed with XIII to finish it in the first place.

Final Fantasy Director Hajime Tabata on Type-0, Final Fantasy 15, and More -- GameSpot

"I wanted to explore Tabata's thoughts on bringing Type-0 to Vita and PC. While porting it to the Vita seems more unlikely than the PC, he reiterated that they are only focused on the console version for now. At least Tabata acknowledged that the live demo was running on a PC. "First and foremost, with the Vita version, we wanted to quickly release the PS4 and Xbox One HD version overseas, so we really prioritized optimizing it for those platforms. In terms of the PC version, it's still up for discussion. It is a possibility, but it's up for discussion. And it's running it on the PC right now, so..."

25 Reasons The Evil Within will Rock -- NeoGAF

Even with all this points (which I knew about), there's still a lot faith put into TEW that fans of the genre have done like myself that have followed the project closely, as well as the more jaded/cynic fans that changed their minds after playing a demo at a event. Why? Because this kind of game doesn't really exists outside Resident Evil and Fatal Frame nowadays.

Who knows what happened with the Siren series after Siren: Blood Curse, which was pretty cool at the time and was a successful project for what I know.

Either way, TEW is mainly exciting for the kind of environment the game is coming from. There's lots of people from Clover Studio, Old-school Capcom, Platinum Games, Grasshopper Manufacture and Game Republic that have done great work in multiple games in the past that are related to TEW's development in some way, and mixing that with the new blood they have at Tango Gameworks I'm certain something great can come out of it.
