Just look at all this beautiful empty space below me! Just begging to be filled with thousands of posts about Tim Rogers here and not the Playstation thread. Will he release his Cyberpunk video? Will he not? Who knows. Only time will tell, but this is a great place to talk about it. Share all of your best Tim Rogers anecdotes and dank memes here!

Tim Rogers is the only good game critic and he played Toki Meki Memorial a LOT and that’s a win in my book.

He’s a little puke who never grew out of his insufferable hipster phase, and is one of the originators of “new” games journalism, e.g., “write about a game only as a vehicle for droning on about my politics/traumas/neuroses, etc.”

I swear I remember an article on Action Button (before he became a fuckin Kotakuite and would still actually deliver an amusing piece from time to time) where a “review” of a game essentially turned into a thesis regarding the time he invited a girl back to his apartment, got shot down, and basically ended up playing a Mario game instead of smashing. Straight livejournal bullshit.

Who cares? Both traditional games reviews (aka 'unpaid advertising') and new garmes journalism reviews (aka 'bad blogs') have been thrown in the garbage bin of history by the modern internet.

Nobody needs to consult some awful nerd's opinion to find out whether a game is good these days, reviews are dead.

This thread should be called "Tim Rogers' Neighborhood".
That's like everything he has ever written. I will never watch any of his videos but I did used to read his Action Button "reviews" which were sometimes amusing for how he would spend pages talking about some pair of jeans he used to own and never talk about the game the article was allegedly about.
The only anecdote of his that makes me mad is how he went on a long rant about how "Japanese game companies don't have any level designers" based on how he somehow got hired at Grasshopper Manufacture to do who knows what since he has no useful game development skills and asked some guy "where are the level designers?" and he said "you mean the guys who make the graphics?" or something. Which if he did 2 seconds of research looking at the credits of any game or even at the company he was literally employed at he could have figured out that the job titles are a bit different there and artists are called "designers" and level design is called "planning" hence why that guy thought he was talking about artists. But no just use that one conversation with some guy to come to the conclusion that no company has level designers and go on a big rant about how awful the industry there is. I think it was back in the late 2000s PS3 era when everyone thought it was cool to poo poo on Japanese games.

Colonel, there's no exposed breasts in these dark souls

This guy really, really, really did not get enough poo poo for trying to claim that filming an editing a longform video essay about a video game that nobody forced him to play or review was somehow harder than working a fast food job. Like I’m sorry but that’s just not true, not based on any metric we have in society that determines things like labor or production. Just an impossibly boneheaded and dumb thing to say, and I hope he feels really really dumb all the time for saying it.

oh agree 100%

also the uh... i guess classism? where he doesn't understand what's hard about working in fast food (or whatever). first, it's not so much that the literal amount of physical labor in service jobs is so bad. it's largely not! many people who work in fast food or other service jobs do almost no work at all and still get paid. that's not me being critical, it's just true.

what's so bad about those kind of jobs is like, the mental environment. the knowledge that you're working for a company that doesn't give a poo poo. the knowledge that you're doing a dumb pointless lovely job that doesn't matter and gently caress you might as well just die

no matter how many hours Tim stays awake, or how hard on his back his editing chair is, he's still in a position where he has tons of friends cheering him on, and $17,000 worth of internet stranger virtually sucking his dick. even if he were literally digging ditches, he would be a moron to bemoan his situation. it's gross that he not only bemoaned his sitch, but tripled down on that

and then he complains about getting death threats or whatever and how much he hates Twitter and it's like... buddy, so stop reading your email, stop using Twitter. he's one of the only people who is in a position to just stop using Twitter or Facebook and still stay popular

I know a guy that loves Tim Rogers basically because he's really obsessed with JRPG and Final Fantasy stuff. I just see him as that guy that makes 50+ minute videos or 50 paragraph post of non-sequitur commentary on the games he played as a kid that never seem to come around to any sort of greater or even smaller point and doing so in a really sarcastic sounding voice. I see him as more or less doing a bit where he sees how long he can make a post/video while still managing to avoid saying anything of any real substance or actually concise commentary about whatever he's talking about. If it's approaching something more in depth usually that's right around when he switches focus.

:lol: I 100% totally remember this era too (like 2010-2015 or so) and Kotaku in particular leading this charge with articles on how JRPG's are dead. In reality what I see as happening in retrospect is that a lot of franchises just weirdly skipped the latter half of the PS3's existence, Publishers outright stopped releasing titles in certain franchises outside of Japan for several years because they seemed to think they were unmarketable or something, and/or most crippling IMO Sony forced a bunch of blip chip franchises or ones that were very successful early on in the PS3's lifespan onto the PSP or Vita exclusively to try to help bolster it's sales and it kind of sort of worked in Japan but clearly not enough and at a massive detriment to franchises fortunes on the PS3 and outside Japan.

Then the PS4 came along and after a few years JRPG's and Japanese games in general seemed to come roaring back with HD releases for the console a string of global hits that were actually marketed and released globally only for producers and lovely journalists to realize that the demand was actually quite substantial globally (provided you actually bothered to release stuff on consoles people actually own or god forbid PC as opposed to Vita exclusives) and boy did the Kotaku's of gaming journalism flip their position on the alive/dead status on JRPG's overnight clearly looking to get in on a slice of that pie. JRPG's are definitely hip and cool to write about and say good things about again and have possibly never been more trendy even. Some of those titles that got buried on the PSP/Vita seem to have gotten HD PS4 ports and a new lease on life now so that's pretty cool I guess.

I don't know man that period seemed like a self-fulfilled prophecy to me where bad limited release methods and choice of platform or no releases at all outside of Japan out of fear of poor sales kind of achieved the result on it's own. Like as a great example of this era and the thinking that went into burying Japanese games for half a generation, I still remember in like 2012 when Reggie Fils-Aime totally forgot at an E3 that they were supposed to run a promo when people were wondering if Fire Emblem Awakening was going to get an English release. Like just completely slipped his and the presenters mind that they were supposed to be marketing this game or even mention it's existence as a localization and some interviewer had to ask him about it afterward. Does anyone realistically think they would miss an opportunity to market a Fire Emblem game now in 2021? That's the surest sign of how things have changed.
