The eShop not having a cart system is both totally on the nose for Nintendo and completely fucking irritating.

Since the Decade of Dark Souls is over and all, Youtube recommended this ancient artifact of early Giant Bomb when Vinny was treated like a weirdo freak because he thought he might like the game:



It makes me realize I want a new genre. BR games missed hard for me and I want something new again. Last decade we had Souls games, everything is a roguelike, and the short lived MOBA takeover. Things are getting stale again.

Giant Bomb's discourse around Demon's Souls and Dark Souls is really funny and bizarre to listen to in retrospect. Dark Souls mechanics have become so ingrained in modern video game design that it's hard to even understand how baffled they were by it initially. Makes you wonder how they would react if you went back and told them "this will go on to be maybe the most influential game of the decade."

I got the same video! Went down a deep old GB hole after that. My current oldie favorite.

The original Demon's Souls Quick Look ends with Jeff (who was of course having absolutely none of anything to do with the game) saying "Thanks for the warning"

So really, things wouldn't have changed that much.

For anybody who only saw GB stuff made in the last decade, here it is. Vinny is at a loss immediately in describing the fundamentals of Souls games. Sorry in advance for the way 2009 sounded:

Jaffe very much comes off like a dude who never really got over the 90s. Both in terms of his design aesthetics and in terms of his attitude towards criticism.

the thumbnails on jaffe's youtube channel make a convincing argument on shutting down youtube altogether

whats it called when the way you react to getting called out just reveals how much you deserved getting called out

do you think david jaffe namesearches?

low key gervais energy
Like a year or two ago I posted in here about how I had gotten into an argument with him on twitter and then was going to talk to him on his twitch about the difference between Canadian and American healthcare and free speech laws. And then I posted that in this topic and noooope, y'all were right for suggesting I not do that..

Parasite was such a good movie. I really wish it had played around here so I could've caught it in a theater.

gervais' stupid speech last week about celebrities should stick to entertainment or whatever right after crowe was like 'literally my farm burned down because the politicians have fucked the climate' definitely didnt sit well with me

also gervais is, like, one of the most successful men in entertainment, so definitely a great place to sit down and shit on people from a great height while still being a man of the people or whatever

I am addicted to Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II. I don't like who I've become over the course of 2020.
