Careercow Jim Sterling (James Stanton/Sexton) & in memoriam TotalBiscuit (John Bain) - One Gaming Lolcow Thread

Honestly, I'd say only New Order seemed like it tried to be all serious, an that kinda fell apart the moment they said "Oh yeah, there's this super secret Jew organization that has created nanomachines and all this other scify shit", by that point you take the whole series as seriously as say The Inglorious Basterds.

Colossus definitely had many attempts to be serious, the whole game starts with domestic abuse and your father trying to make you shoot your dog. Then we end up with disembodied heads and one of the most WTF moments I've ever witnessed in the final cutscene.

From what I’ve seen of Colossus and especially Youngblood, they seem to be trying to recapture the tone of Inglorious Bastards and completely missing what made that movie work. Bastard’s tone works because it makes Nazis into a total farce but still maintains a hatable villain and palpable tension. This is because of Tarantino’s excellent dialog and a captivating performance by Christof Waltz, which Wolf has neither. Bastards is in many ways a parody of American propaganda films of the era, making its 100 NATZEE SCALPS tone work, because in propaganda the enemy is always completely irredeemable, and the fact that our hero’s are committing war crimes doesn’t even occur to the audience. Meanwhile the new Wolf games seem to think that they’re the most politically relevant and socially conscious games ever. Combine that with a way, way too serious and preachy tone and all the talk of KILLIN NAZIS YOU GUYSE and it comes off like a vindictive power fantasy for lefties who imagine trump supporters as Nazis.

You know, I find it somewhat ironic we have anti-SJW's getting pissy over the Wolf games, while SJW's are pissy over Doom Eternal for making fun of 'em.

Can you really blame people who don’t want to play a game where their political affiliation (in this case anyone right of Mao) is demonized? Why would I put up with that shit just for an average shooter? The recent Wolf games are made by leftists for leftists, I don’t exactly think that’s a stretch when you look at the writing and the way the games are worshiped by spergs like Jim.

Meh, for me to take Wolf's writing seriously it would really need to try. Suffice to say, the writing is about as serious as a Steven Seagal or Chuck Norris movie so I'd say one gets more entertainment watching either group of spergs either be offended by something or praise it when it offends the other side, while the average schmo just plays the game not even caring why these spergs are pissing about.

That's what we're here for.

Yes.
 
Latest video is one I can't help but find myself agreeing with. Fuck companies who put in microtransactions after launch


Edit - apart from the bit at the end. No one is angry you play as women in Youngblood, they're angry because you play as obnoxiously unlikeable women in Youngblood.

There's a lot of opinions that most of us could agree with Jim on, that isn't the problem.

This is, he'll use issues that everyone can agree with him on to try boost his ego and push his more controversial takes.

Huh, and now the video's unavailable. How peculiar.
Funnily enough I was going to notify you on that, but that's unnecessary now it seems. Anyway, I wonder why the fuck he removed his video, it's not like it was that controversial, and not like he would remove it even if it was, did he get some bit of info wrong in that video?

Maybe received thinly-veiled threats from the indie devs wanting to sue. That, or they went after Jim for not being on their side and he reconsidered. Honestly, I see no other reason to take the whole thing down when it's pretty straightforward with how shitty these devs have been acting to their legitimate supporters.

Always remember to archive, kids.
Typically I do, but mainly for more significant stuff. This specific video really isn't that special compared to Yong Yea's:
And before you complain about this one not being archived, I did download it, yet the file was too large to upload.

Speaking of YY, unlike Sterling, he made a follow up video.

In other words all the major publications are now coming out in support of Epic because of gibleygoiter harassment so he must conform and bend the knee also.

The fuck is Ooblets and what does it bring to the table?
It's apparently Animal Crossing with some dancing, in an indie "Adventure-Time™" Cal Arts style. They were a slow husband-and-wife development team that have taken years to develop something simpler and slower than Evaxephon/Yanderedev. Everything was fine because the patrons were getting what they expected, small updates to a demo that often added fluff instead of core features, and bugs every step of the way. Then Tim Sweeny swooped in to fund it, which drastically changed the dynamic between patrons and customers. Mainly some of the foreign supporters claimed they were upset because they had been funding development, and now cannot buy the game from the Epic Games Store because they suck shit compared to Steam and can't support their country/currency. The Ooblets devs could have smoothed things over by offering free keys or an expected date of dropping exclusivity to please these outlier fans, but instead gave them a big "fuck you, we have Epic money now" in a few responses. That's the big takeaway, they have no interest in pleasing anyone with any grievance, large or small. They're fragile, defensive and public embarrassing themselves online. And apparently once they got their Epic money, they relocated to Portland to continue development, which is a huge waste of money and a lack of talent. They sold out & just retreated to libtard heaven.

So twee indie shit with pretentious devs that sold out at the first opportunity?

I typed the following joke: "Did the blog post about how gamers are entitled toxic garbage drop yet or is that later?" but before hitting "post reply" I learned that it already dropped. Did no-one learn anything from Sunset?
