The Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack for Switch drops digitally on the 31st, but it's been confirmed that it'll get a physical release later in the fall!

In general I have liked their trailer analyses but since early this year every single video they put out is full of kind of an attempted cutesy narrative of "Time to spin up the old analysis machine" which is lame, as well as most videos featuring them faux complaining about how much work they had to do on this video and how hard it is.

I have seventy hours in splatoon and have played 0% of the single player. doesn't really feel like a game to try to beat

I thought the single player was fun and a good warmup for getting used to the controls again after having not played the first game for a year (and with a different controller at that) but lol at anyone who even thinks of buying the game for anything except the multiplayer.

Am I getting rolled or did you enjoy the random inability to use abilities because some nerd judge said you couldn't?

Combined with an awful plot and a weirdly inconsistent class spread (why use anything other than the viera assassin?), I just remember not enjoying that game at all. Despite beating it, because that's what you do with new games when you're a kid.

Do people in other comp games go "Welp I hit 3000 Elo, time to stop playing forever" and is it just a weird psychological thing from showing a bar that fills up (assuming they're still enjoying the game up to that point)

I mean, I've done it other times before in ranking modes. It's nice to just set your own goal for how many points to get to settle on a stopping point if I don't intend to play the game indefinitely. I don't see what's wrong with that.

I wouldn't call that "beating the game" though, nor would I really do that for a game I didn't like.

You can kill ganon with things you grab out of the castle and some food (ie speedruns) so if you wanna put him down and then go deal with HP sponges in master mode* I don't see why not.

*Haven't actually played master mode but that's sure what it sounds like zzzz

Master mode is really fun. The enemies aren't really health sponges unless you save all your best weapons (don't) You just go through weapons faster (but you get a lot of great weapons way more often). They hit really hard though.

Overall master mode is definitely much harder but nowhere near something like dark souls or whatever. It's very doable.

FFTA is a really good srpg that gets a lot of hate because the story is about a dude rejecting a fun fantasy world where he gets to be a cool warrior in favour of the real world.

So the underlining moral is that you shouldn't play videogames.

As someone who never played it anytime it comes up all I hear "loving random judge poo poo" so no I don't think it's that.

People are really brain broken and will play games they don't actually enjoy so they can get arbitrary points or rewards they have no intention of using, and will stop playing games they do enjoy once they exhaust the arbitrary points or reward system.

I have a friend who was obsessed (like really obsessed) with trophies and platinums on PlayStation. He got totally burnt out on video games for a while because he was playing games he hated for trophies or because they had easy platinums and he was putting down games he liked because they didn't have platinums or he had already gotten them.

You know what fixed his burnout? He bought a switch, and with no trophies or cheevos he can just play games he likes because he likes playing them, rather than feeling enslaved to trophies.

The cheevo effect is real, friends.

FFTA is to the FFT/TO games what Suikoden 4 is to the Suikoden series.

I bought Sonic Mania on the PS4 instead of the Switch for trophies. I don't play lovely games or go out of my way to get trophies for things I want to do in game, but I still enjoy them. When they are done well, it's like bonus objectives for a game. If I bought Sonic Mania on Switch, I wouldn't have enjoyed it any less but without the trophies my playtime would almost certainly be a lot less.
