Uh, actually I'll have you know that Rare has been trying to make a pirate game since the SNES.

I guess you can add the idea of a Rare JRPG/adventure game with prerendered graphics onto the giant pile of cool poo poo we missed on by Nintendo refusing to used discs for the N64.

That was because the Windows Store version couldn't connect with the Steam versions. If there is only one way to play it on the PC that should at least keep the population up (I had no problem with multiplayer Forza Horizon 3)

Yeah, it doesn't help that the tutorial level feels like it doesn't prepare you for what the game is actually about to throw at your at all. I did the tutorial and was like "this won't be so bad" which was quickly followed by horrible death.

6 months into the year and i've only beaten 10 indies from 2017:

Poi, Mini-Ghost, Slime-San, Dead Cells (reviewer copy version which was shorter), Alwa's Awakening, Rise & Shine, Lit, Nefarious, A Normal Lost Phone, and Milkmaid of the Milky Way

a lot of b-grade games at best, my top three are probably Alwa, Dead Cells and Slime-San. weakest would probably be either Lit or Nefarious

I still own these yet to play: Brigador Up-Armored Edition, The Tenth Line, Stories Untold, Morphblade

I also played the sneak peek of Hollow Knight which I liked and a demo of Splasher which was super good, but don't own either yet

The Tenth Line feels like a euro rpg from the 90s, in that it has furries and is needlessly complicated

You have to remember that Croc was pitched to Nintendo as a 3D Yoshi game before the N64 was even a thing, which they were very excited about until they suddenly dropped until they later just happened to reveal Mario 64 at the same E3 Argonaut was revealing Croc.

Man, Nintendo were were not nice to Argonaut. I think never making a worthwhile Starfox game after 64 is their punishment for that.

That's a story that the guy who made Croc swears is true yet everyone else in it swears never happened.

I genuinely have an easier time with the game when it slows down right before death, but it doesn't last forever and then I go back to dying.

I wish it had a mode like Brigador where you can slow down the action and process it before turning the speed back up to "death."

I just got to the part where his argument turns to "Demon's Souls is more realistic"

He also criticizes that the mechanism for fighting bosses is learning how to fight them. And says that "learning a bosses moveset is a fine way to beat a boss, but when you do it 20 times per game, it's a bit much". He thinks that gimmick fights reward the player for being smart and that's much better.

I can't even.

He's making the classic blunder of pretty much every person ever to come at an action RPG from the RPG side -- undervaluing the development of physical execution.

Let's see what the founder of Argonaut is doing these days:

quote:

An entrepreneur who spearheaded poker’s online revolution is now boldly claiming his latest venture can change the face of online casinos forever.

Jez San, who founded PKR.com, the innovative 3D poker site which flourished in the poker boom years of the mid-to-late 2000s, is now turning his attention to blockchain technology in his bid to do to online casinos what Uber did for urban transport.

The new venture, called FunFair, is based on Ethereum, which, like Bitcoin, is a blockchain-based platform. But the difference with Ethereum is the far superior ability to create software for it, something which is prohibitively difficult with Bitcoin.

Like Bitcoin, Ethereum is decentralized and fully auditable, so basing online casinos on it will mean all of the games and gameplay are guaranteed be free from any tampering or cheating – or being ‘provably fair’ as the blockchain term goes.

Jez told Casinopedia: “What this allows us to do is make casino games that are fair, that allow us to be transparent, which has never been possible before on any system.”

The plan is to make FunFair the platform on which a potentially limitless number of online casinos are based. FunFair provides the ‘back-end’ tech, the games and the innovations from which casino operators can launch online casinos.

This is exactly what the likes of Playtech and Microgaming offer now in the ‘regular’ online casino world.

So, in other words, FunFair wants to be the ‘Playtech’ of blockchain casinos, rather than operate any casinos itself.

It's not like Star Fox ever predicted this.

Or...maybe it did?

was it gypsy moth or tent caterpillars? those absolutely ravaged eastern massachusetts about 20 years ago, I still remember teams of state-hired exterminators going house to house, cutting down any tent caterpillar nests. They were loving EVERYWHERE, a single tent could a meter across and have a thousand caterpillars in it.
