I heard Big Joel was good but I have trouble watching his videos because I feel like his massive eyeballs are about to pop out of his head at any moment and bounce off the camera. Seriously they must be the size of tennis balls.

While I loved Doom 2016. The original doom cyberdemon was more iconic in its design and I would rather have seen an updated version of that. The 2016 one looks more like a lumpy alien than a demon. The original cyberdemon gives more occult hell merged with machine vibes.

I like Jim. Did Jim ever catch a break. Ever?

Like yeah he's internet famous with all the wealth, power and glory that comes with it. But he's pretty much toiled for it a few thousands subscribers at a time for over a decade. I don't think he ever went viral or anything. He's also one of the few. If not the only completely uncompromising personalities in mainstream youtube videogaming media. No sponsorships, no kissing up to the money. Just his own views come hell or high water.

I had a friend who's mom was a gamer and she called bosses "dragons" So she told me about the dragon in the Ocarina of time water temple and I was so disappointed by the actual final boss (absolutely not a dragon). I only caught on later when she talked about the "first and third dragon" in a different dungeon.

It's a trifecta of shitheads misunderstanding a satirical film for hours on end. That's got to be a horrific feedback loop.

Sounds like they understood is pretty well because they are literal fascists, the original book was also fascist and the movie shits on the book and fascists.

Does anyone know why Jim Sterling moved to the US? He was asked about his health insurance and he said that he doesn't have one and just pays for everything out of pocket. Seems like his job could be done from anywhere and the US would be the worst place for someone with his health issues. Especially when he has other options.

There's the forests before Juno where you can just spam Matra Magic to insta kill groups of 5 enemies for tons of xp, money and limit break kill points.

Then once you're done there you can connect fire to your elemental materia (bracer slot) to reduce fire damage taken by 50% (beta is fire) and then go for the Zolom.

Charge up all 3 characters limit breaks. Do 1 meteor rain and the zolom will use beta and then finish it with another limit break.

The New Colossus is a fun game but it struggles in a few aspects. Scope is one. Going to the moon was a huge effort in TNO. In TNC you go to loving Venus with something like one scene transition.

The nazis are also a near insurmountable threat in TNO. In TNC you start with a super advanced near undetectable submarine loaded advanced airships and several nukes at your disposal.

America is on the other side of the planet, away from the Nazi's seat of power and all their forces. Taking America makes perfect sense, because it's a far greater logistical effort to get ground and naval forces over there than somewhere in Europe. Gives them time to fortify, and rebuild a fighting force to go at Europe properly.

Well I mean it's America like 20 years after they surrendered to the nazis. It's probably pretty well occupied at this point.

TNC takes place in the US for the same reason that 99% of all media takes places there. Because hoora murika.

tom scott released a very good video on why the problem isnít with youtubeís copyright id system, itís with copyright law

I mean the problem is overwhelmingly with youtubes copyright system because they have all the money in the world but can't be arsed to hire enough people to manually check claims.

They also punish people for refuting copyright claims while specifically not punishing people who file false copyright claims against content they don't own.

Google and Youtube do not warrant this level of ravenous defence and absolutely not the benefit of the doubt. Tom Scott makes the occasional alright video.

If youtube isn't profitable it's because google is siphoning off money to keep it that way. They didn't spend 1.6 billion dollars on it to lose money.

I actually like stealth combat more in Bethesda than most other games because the NPCs in Bethesda games are.... wait for it.... surprised.

They don't expect you and when you start sniping them they panic and have trouble finding you.


Other dedicated stealth games will have mechanics to balance the stealth so the game becomes challenging as a stealthy character. So for example after a few moments of sniping all of a sudden all the mobs know where you are.


In Bethesda games you actually feel like a sneaky fucker because you sneak and assassinate your way around the challenges built for more head on approaches. Everything from straight up sniping to sneaking up on bosses and planting nuclear charges in their path to obliterate them.

that's an interesting spin to put on "the ai is dumb as a box of rocks and incredibly easy to abuse with stealth mechanics"

Dumb AI can very easily counter stealth mechanics and does in a ton of games but just knowing where you are instantly when you make a noise or trigger an alarm.

In Fallout 4 the AI can get your general directions and will randomly fire towards you without having spotted you simply because they don't know exactly where you are.


Making stealth in a fallout game less powerful would be incredibly trivial to do but would that make the game more fun?

I enjoyed playing Sonic Adventure 1 on release, when I rented it while I had chicken pox and was completely hosed up on meds to stop the itching. The meds were great, but I'm also pretty sure they're what made the game good.

Ironically I had chicken pox when playing Everquest 2 and I'm pretty sure that's the reason I hated the game so much and all my memories of it are miserable.


That and money had weight and vendors didn't make change so you sold a merchant like 100 crafted rings for 60 coppers each and you were now carrying 6000 copper coins which gave you a massive penalty to movement speed while you slowly made your way to the bank to exchange them for silver and gold coins.
