    Why not talk about some games that are worth talking about instead

    Like Hi-Fi Rush, which is amazing, and if it does not sell well enough to get at least two more sequels, I am going to be blaming all of you, personally, for not playing it enough

    It's not going to sell like any copies because it's on Gamepass.

    Well one of the questions is scale. I've absolutely seen people who are online in the trans community respond in absolutely unhinged and inappropriate manners - drama currently going down with keffals, for example, and her racism. But how many of those people are in your community as an online presenter, versus how much general harassment you get to begin with? Like, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying it's a good thing that internet harassment is widespread. But it is, and how you choose to respond to it matters. And if this case, if you get hurtful messages from people you don't know, and your response is to mock wider concerns, you have made a decision on how to present yourself. You have chosen who you feel will represent a community. And our memes in which we mock you for doing that will respond in kind.

    Yeah, that's why my framing was "What's likelier?"

    On a case by case basis, there're gonna be outliers, but what's likelier? When choosing to paint the entire sentiment as "legitimate," for lack of a better term, who benefits? Why cede even an inch to "there are bad people on both sides" when the matter is, "should trans people be allowed to exist?"

    I'm not accusing nobody of nothing, just encouraging reflection on narratives

    my post was in no way a 'actually both sides are bad' scenario and I hope to god people know me better than to believe I'd side with some neo-liberal masked-off chud

    Hi-Fi Rush is so fucking good! It's got good comedic writing, it does cute fourth-wall breaking stuff that isn't annoying, it has a solid combat system to start with and it's only enhanced by the timing mechanics, and there's nothing cooler than the licensed tracks kicking in during boss fights.

    Also I love the character designs, lots of variety with a consistent style. And the robot designs are a lot of fun, the little cleaning bots are delightful.

    The only thing I wish was that I was better at the Just Timing, I get like 50% most of the time, even when I'm really trying to keep to the beat.

    Oh, that and I think that the fact that movement through the levels is rarely to the beat is something that has a knock-on effect. Like in Crypt of the Necrodancer/Cadence of Hyrule, just getting around the level gets you into the groove even before you hit enemies. In this you can just tool around a level only to have the beat kick in during a fight. I'd prefer if there was something that required a button press to the beat, and then much shorter levels to make that less taxing.

    But yeah this needs a sequel!

    I haven't played it because it's VR only and I don't have VR, and full disclosure I kinda sorta know (in a parasocial/internet acquaintance kind of way) one of the people who worked on it (composer and i think sound?).

    But Straylight ( https://www.drbloc.com/ ) came out last week and I've heard generally from people who have played it that it's very fun. And one of their main selling points and design goals was to make a movement based VR game that wouldn't make you sick. Which seems they were largely successful at.

    And the soundtrack slaps.

    My current inability to play HiFi Rush actually has me looking hard at an Xbox Series S (my PC is a potato, and not a good potato either). Nothing Xbox has to offer from a first party AAA standpoint interests me, but goddamn Pentiment and HiFi Rush have got me thinking about it hard.

    I mentally categorized it in the same space as stuff like “My Grandma Reviews Overwatch Characters Just Based On Looks” where, ok, that was a neat thing to experience once, but I’m not looking to get a whole Brand out of it.

    Good news, it was the 8th most sold title on Steam when it released and outperformed Forspoken.

    Wasn’t girlfriend reviews so hurt/bullied that they kept streaming like 6 more hours and then did another entire stream of the game the next day?

    Sure, they’ve been bullied right off the internet…….

    Most of the “she ran off and cried!” articles I saw when I went looking for more info have been from sites I’ve seen post chudlike articles before or fucking Fox News.

    someone could probably do a pretty decent amount of writing on branding yourself around the gimmick of othering the Girlfriend as a non-gamer not in this space, and the subsequent usage of her as a prop that doesn't speak for herself in the articles reporting here

    It's done well enough, and it helps that it's only $30.

    i have no idea if the minion memes are genuinely being shared or if they are, like, second or third order ironic memes based on the idea of boomer minion memes

    i choose not to dwell on it, though

    The shitty ass thing is that GFR is ultimately like a few years journey to the lady writing funny joke reviews also being into video games and playing them. Like ultimately the bit is about being around games slowly making you care about them as a medium.

    But also the second she said she was an american theater kid in the among us video I could see this HP garbage coming.

    I mean the whole trojan horse is that no one streaming it is a terf. I don't think GFR or anyone I see streaming it are magically secret bigots.

    It's just leveraging them being folks into the kid wizard stuff to seep unimaginable quantity of nightmare shit from transphobes into spaces I'm used to being pretty clean.

    My entire stance is that if someone's gonna play the game guiltily sure whatever. I'll probably play Brigador Killers even though one half of that dev duo is a huge right wing chud.

    It's just real gross when people pretend it's shocking others don't approve of them streaming it. It's also weird when they type up essays trying to justify it or buy indulgences off trans charities.

    He got invited back in like... a year ago I think last I recall? Blood is thicker than horrifically bigotted forum rants I guess.

    Fucking blows ass for me because Killers looks incredible but I'm probably gonna seek it in a bargain bin price due to that.

    Fall of Porcupine - I guess a Night in the Woods-alike is the quickest comparison. Side scrolling 2d platformer adventure with talking animals and a very neat stylised look, though unlike Mae the main character is much more light-hearted. You're a young doctor pigeon in a small town hospital that's slowly falling apart. Talk to folks, diagnose patients, hang out with coworkers after work. And then after about an hour the demo ends with
    a patient getting murdered,
    so somewhat burying the lede on the theme. But I suppose that also fits the Night in the Woods mould.
