I hadn't seen it and have been also been playing video games longer than most of you have been alive. I am not convinced akimbo = dual wield is as widespread as you think, and akimbo = wearing two of something is a sad kind of confusion.

I think in your case, the astounding part is an adult is being a jerk to someone for their use of the word. The exact commonality is immaterial, you didn't seem to get the reference and were insulting about it.

Even if its rare in general, a cyberpunk game thread is exactly the place for lingo at the intersection between hongkong action films and video games. But its not a place for you to dismiss people as children or compare them to confederate icons for references you don't understand. That you've played games longer than most of us have been alive, but missed Blood, Action Quake, and The Opera is truly tragic. But your tragedy isn't justification to lash out.


Edit: I never played Blood

That page says itís a reference to ďakimboĒ, but the akimbo page doesnít have anything about dual anythings.

You can certainly have just one arm akimbo, which would mean...what, in this brave new world?

whoa now, let's not say things we don't mean. Maybe you haven't had statues pulled down in your area recently, but in places that happens, people start petitions to replace them with things that are better. It wasn't a "comparison to Confederate icons."

A lot of posturing. A lack of accepting responsibility. It can't be that your phrasing was ambiguous. You could just say thats not what I meant, but instead my 'misunderstanding' of your point is attributed to your baseless insinuation that my lived experience doesn't have this extra layer of depth in it that yours does. You appear so threatened and I don't understand or care much why. Its clear though that you do. But it doesn't help. Nobody thinks more highly of you for it.

So it was a nonsequitor reference to your lived experience and not a comparison to confederate icons that succeeded your dismissal of this person for their use of language, despite that use being fairly legitimate in context though not sufficiently referenced to save you from embarassment. Got it.

Yeah, it was just a bullet summary someone made saying that it got removed as a gameplay style because it was too similar to another? But several of the early access people said they played through the mission with the X-eye dudes so .

have you never heard about using "akimbo" to refer to dual wielding weapons before? did you literally discover video games yesterday?

Fun fact: I may actually be the first person to coin this term with relationship to videogames. I'm welcome to be wrong, but I think the first usage of this term with relation to videogames was in Action Quake 2.

EDIT: Nevermind, as someone pointed out, it's in Blood, which is earlier than AQ2 by a year.

i like this one.
You can injure/dismember enemies and then leave them alive and (presumably) disarmed instead of killing them.

it fits with the setting at least since alot of people are half bot anyway.

Reminds me of Metal Gear Rising where you chop a dudes arms and legs off and that's considered to be a non-lethal takedown.

not surprised. apparently tech class has been sidelined a bit as awell. apparently the flathead felt redundant because everything it could do, you could do, and you had to control it to do the stuff. so yeah.

Iíve made the mistake of playing pet classes in games that werenít optimized for it (or: me summoning more pets than the pathfinding can handle) so I respect designers who can recognize itís a bad experience and cut it so I donít have to sucker myself into playing it.

It would depend on how moddable the game is and how much of the spiderbot is actually coded into the game already. They're saying they cut it because of class/gameplay overlap, but a drone that can walk on any surface and that you were going to be able to remote into and control probably had about eight million different glitches and bugs associated with it. Cutting it is probably saving them a lot of work. Expecting a modder, or even a team of modders, to be able to get it to a playable state is a big ask.

I guess my brain is broken because brain dance looked really cool to me but most people who got to play the game seemed not to like it. I get that it conjures up that interminable "enhance" scene from Blade Runner but it looks like a nice refinement of Witcher sense, and it seems perfectly fitting as a popular form of entertainment in this setting.
