    I'm not sure Dan Hibiki is getting the push he deserves

    He's a copy of a copy.

    A lesser Dan there never was!

    I watched it live, and the thing that happened with the spring made the chat explode. It was hilarious.

    People in the comments are saying whatever ROM/emulator they are using might be messing them up, because the game they are playing doesn't look like the Japanese SMB2 they know.

    It seems like the lost levels, to me

    Dunno how different that is from japanese 2

    The argument seems to be that according to memories, chat, and archival footage, Luigi is supposed to jump noticeably higher and slide more than he is when they are playing.

    Also the UI says Mario when they've chosen Luigi Game.

    not only the UI, they didn't notice that Toad said "Mario our Princess is in another..." while playing as Luigi

    I feel really bad that I started playing Yakuza 2 many years ago and just stopped...and then proceeded to buy Yakuza 3 and 4 (they were on sale!), and I got Yakuza 5 on PSN thanks to PS+.

  • cooljammer00cooljammer00 Hey Small Christmas-Man!Registered User regular
    I played a bit of the demo for 4, I think. I got a free copy of 5 that took forever to download (because PSN), and then I never played it.

    Yakuza 0 is my first time playing a Yakuza game and for the life of me I can't figure out why it took me this long. This series is right up my alley.

    To be fair, and this is speaking as someone a bit ignorant of the series, this almost sounds like a Saint's Row thing. The first couple were ok, but it wasn't until further in that the series started finding its footing and really becoming its own thing.

    I love the guy but I'm honestly not sure he really grasps the concept of anything other than like...pro wrestling.

    I, on the other hand, want a podcast with Jeff, Peter Brown, Steve Lin, and Frank Cifaldi. Last week's Bombcast was great.

    Nah. Hearing about older than NES era stuff is great because it's before my time and thus super interesting to hear from people who lived it.

    It's gonna turn out that the only thing keeping Jeff from liking the Souls games was the tone/setting.

    Sorta like how he loves GTA but hates RDR because he hates cowboys.

    IIRC (I've been listening to old Bombcasts lately) he isn't really that big on high fantasy. Also, he actually streamed a bit of Bloodborne.

    I always thought his main dislike about Souls was how slow and animation heavy they are. Bloodborne and Nioh, by comparison, play a much faster.

    Jeff doesn't like games that emphasize patience. RDR luxuriated in the environment wandering and didn't have the immediate chaos that GTA revels in, Dark Souls is the definition of "hold on a sec" gameplay. He played XCOM as all heavies, no medics. Dude likes to burn through shit and move on.

    Honestly, I think that's definitely some of the problems I had with Souls games, in that I didn't give one fuck about anything that was going on plot or setting-wise. And I'm normally totally down with fantasy. There just wasn't any drive to keep playing once the bullshit-factor got cranked up high enough to make me keep going.

    I think with the more-focused mission and story structure, I might be more okay with Nioh.

    Isn't there supposed to be some sort of incredible reverence for the lore in that series, or something?

    Except every time I look at it I just feel this weird sort of apathy for the setting

  • FuriousJodoFuriousJodo Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    You kind of have to look hard for the lore, and it was never very interesting to me personally. Bloodborne had a bit more going on there, I think the world was way more interesting than the Souls games has been - but it still wasn't all that engrossing.
