Congratulations to u/anykck on completing Double Dragon (Game Boy)! If anyone still wants to try and complete it, you have 24 hours to still get a flair for your efforts. Comment with a Flair and I will give
It doesn't look like we've ever done a Game Gear game, so let's do a Game Gear game!

The GG Shinobi

  • Developer(s): Sega
  • Publisher(s): Sega
  • Platform(s): Game Gear
Red must save his fellow Shinobi, who have been brainwashed by evil. After being saved, you'll find that each has their own weapon, ninjutsu, and skill. These are great for finding extra power-ups in levels. These different skills and the boss set up slightly resembles Megaman X. The last stage is huge, and requires all Shinobi skills.

Emulation Information:
I would tell you that you should buy it on 3DS virtual console, but Nintendo doesn't actually want you buying games on a console that's a whole... one generation old. So maybe take this as a chance to use ares, a multi-system emulator started by Near of bsnes and higan fame, now developed by Luke Usher and others. It's come a long way and is now a very good option for emulating Sega games.

2023.06.02 04:52 Lepony A look at some of the common complaints that frequent fighting game discourse

A Necessary Preface

To start things off, some baselines need to be set for the sake of sidestepping a lot of talking points. This post will come entirely from the perspective that fighting games are a multiplayer genre first. There's a lot of very valid criticisms of the genre's single player aspect. I am actively choosing to ignore them for this post. When these discussions occur, it's meant from the perspective of the fighting game community trying to convince people to play and stick with the genre. For hundreds or even thousands of hours. In the same way that people would League of Legends, Apex, Rocket League, etc. The single-player aspect ultimately have very little bearing on the multiplayer aspect since it only increases impressions and not retention.
I'll also make a deeply arbitrary distinction between accessibility and accommodations for the disabled. They're two very different issues where the latter needs to be tackled in ways that I, or most people, am completely uninformed in. I am going to be addressing the layman's accessibility concerns.
FGC-heads, I know many of you have also thrown in the towel and now sing the virtues of gatekeeping due to not wanting "intolerants". But don't be an ass about it and remember there's a lot more wiggle room than you think. This post already comes across as condescending despite my best efforts, so cool it.
Finally, you don't have to read all of this. Just keep an eye out for the bolds that catch your eye. I'll try to keep things as simple as much as I reasonably can, but things will ultimately be technical. You will likely need a passing familiarity of the terms I'll be using, and I'll try to assist you in that by linking to a definition when appropriate. I will avoid requiring rigorous knowledge of the subject matter though, so don't get too caught up in the details.
This conveniently segways to one common criticism.

There is too much terminology for me to learn

There sure is a lot of them. But they're not used to make things esoteric. They're words meant to concisely convey otherwise intuitive concepts for the purposes of discussion, learning, and troubleshooting.
In other words, you don't really need to explicitly learn them. Eventually, you'll implicitly learn all the terminology. Just not the words to express them. Think of it like how many of us trying out chess will start games by moving a pawn to allow the Queen to move around, completely unaware of the fact that what we're performing is likely a Queen's Pawn or a King's Pawn opening. In the same vein, many are likely already familiar with certain popular concepts in fighting games. You're just unaware of what they're called, or know them by another name.
Take for example, spacing or neutral. You're likely familiar with snipers in a multiplayer shooter. If a sniper is uncontested, they completely own or dominate the "space" they're looking at. Running in full view of a sniper is a terrible idea because of it, and hiding behind cover is a solid idea because they don't "dominate" the space behind cover. To shut down a sniper's control of an area, you need to either physically overpower them (kill them), approach from a space they're not in control of (ambush them), or to force them to move else where (flush them out) via grenades or simply shooting in their general direction. Or in fighting game terms, whiff punish them (kill them), by playing footsies (ambush them), or by zoning (flush them out) them out.
Frame data deserves a special mention. The simplest way to put is that they're measurements of time. If you play any game somewhat seriously, you're already familiar. Reload speeds, fire rates, attack rates, and even movement speeds. Hell, something as simple as not wanting to use Knights of Round on generic encounters due to the long animation is a decision rooted in frame data.

There are too many things I need to learn

That's fair. There's no way around it. Fighting games are so far removed on a physical level that most people will have to learn everything from scratch. But it's not for the sake of it. There's too little overlap for you to rely on to draw experience.
I'll try not to bore you with the details by delving deep into stuff like Razbuten's series about gaming for non-gamers. But there's an inherent language to video game conventions and how things control or happen. It's all very learned behavior and not all of it translates to every game. For fighting games in particular, almost nothing translates unless you play exclusively 2d beat 'em ups, spectacle fighters, Monster Hunter, and Soulslikes. And even then.
And that's all okay. We all have a finite amount of time in our lives, with responsibilities to attend to. We can't invest the time to learn everything we need for everything we have a passing interest in. We all pick our battles.

No, seriously, it's all really overwhelming even when I'm trying

It sure is. And there are lots of ways the on-boarding process could be significantly improved upon. These days, the games with the most renowned tutorials are from French Bread or Arc System Works. And they're very excellent... at being a reference. Primary learning material they are not. I could talk about all about the ways things could be improved, but I'm not part of the industry. Waste of character limits if you ask me.
Until things improve drastically, my only advice is to take things slow. A lot of the things you're tempted to learn are cool combos, special techniques to make people stop blocking, or every single move your character has. Maybe all at once. Don't. Pick one or two things to focus on. Play against people where your only goals in life are the one or two things. Move onto new things when you feel that you're comfortable. Rinse and repeat until you've had enough.

The controls aren't intuitive

There's a funny thing about intuition. Despite it being rooted in instinct, it's entirely learned behavior. If you've used mnemonics before, you probably know that some just aren't very useful no matter how hard you try. It's kinda arbitrary. Things being intuitive or unintuitive also don't matter that much in the grand scheme of things. Like mnemonics, intuition only go so far to help you remember or learn something.
Movement tech in other genres is often brought up as an argument for intuition. They're typically a "logical" sequence of inputs that the player is already familiar with. Smash Melee's Wavedash actually gets brought up as an example time to time. It's jump then air dodge directly back onto the platform. On paper, it's very simple and easy to do.
It's not. The dexterity required to do it is a lot more than you'd expect it to be. Then there's frequency of its use, which causes a very real, physical strain on you. No matter how you look at it, you'll spend several orders of magnitudes more learning the rhythm than you do remembering the sequence of actions. The sequence themselves are a very minor step.
Not to mention, there is a language to how fighting game controls. Most people aren't used to it because most games aren't anything like fighting games. Take for example the quarter circle forward input. It's also known as the fireball input. Why? Because the average QCF input is a fireball. If not, it's probably a move that lunges your character forward. The fact that it ends in forward usually indicates that it's designed to control space in front of you. Hey look, a made up mnemonic. It's also probably useless!

Motion controls are superfluous and should be simplified

A very popular misconception, no doubt due to the widespread popularity of Smash. But the matter of fact is that motion controls are not superfluous and have momentous consequences. But at the same time, the consequences kinda don't matter. It creates a different type of fighting game for people to enjoy, which people do. The problem comes when people assert that it should be mandatory across the entire genre thinking that nothing would change. It's the same as saying that every FPS needs to have parkour mechanics or every action game needs to have animation canceling or every RPG needs to be real time: it's incredibly short-sighted. There's a reason why Smash has poor cross pollination or why not every TF2 player likes Overwatch.
If you're willing to accept the previous paragraph at face value, skip to the next checkpoint. The following will be dense.
The simplest example of the consequences of simplified inputs is the single input invicible DP. Their existence completely redefines how offense is structured and how it is played out. In particular, it heavily emphasizes true gapless blockstrings because the ease of the DP make it so that any unintentional gaps are fundamentally bad pressure. Because of that, pressure becomes more telegraphed and rigid, to the point of turns becoming almost concrete. Or in other words, homogenized and potentially requiring study at all levels.
I also need to stress the word unintentional here. There are entire series and subgenres that thrive on forcing chaotic, ambiguous situations that neither player is fully aware of but have to place their bets anyway. But with a one button DP, intentionally causing mutually ambiguous situations will almost never be in your favor because doing anything will lose out to a DP.
There's some other reasons why the ease factor can cause new problems that need to be addressed, like how most motions don't end in a blocking input which means you must forgo blocking or how some inputs assume that you forgo your ability to move forward. But there are ways around this with surprisingly minimal effects on gameplay or even cause novel situations. But I'm ready to move on.
See, simplified inputs have a very inherent and significant design cost to them. Grapplers in fighting games historically have insanely fast grabs. It's not uncommon for a grappler's command grab to be tied for literally the fastest move in the game, while simultaneously being 2-4x the range of other similarly fast non-grabs, and typically leading to much more advantageous situations post-grab than fast non-grabs. As seen here. Not only are they incredibly strong offensively, but also incredibly strong defensively. Almost as strong as a DP generally, and sometimes stronger than DPs in very specific (but potentially common) scenarios. This is often balanced out by the motions tied to these moves have an associated time cost to perform them in most but not all situations, ontop of the fact that it requires some modicum of effort to perform. Combined, this results in a surprisingly low margin for error to utilize this move effectively, and even players at the highest levels fail it every so often in stress-free, at home in their boxers, scenarios.
Think of it like the choice between slamming on your brakes to minimize collision damage or swerving to avoid it entirely. With enough of a heads up, everyone would choose to swerve. But sometimes you don't realize that you have enough room to swerve and by the time you did, it's too late. You have to pick the next best option. Mental burden is the concept I'm stressing here.
Of course, we can adjust how one button command grabs work to minimize the differences. The most common answer to this is by making the command grab themselves slower. But by doing so, the command grab is now a fundamentally different move. It cannot be used defensively. It is offensively neutered and the scenarios where it is a good idea to use is significantly reduced. The alternative answer is by tying the command grab to a resource. In turn, it's no longer a move that you always have access to. It's something that must be built towards and then managed alongside all the other mechanics that likely share the same resource.
Nothing mentioned so far are inherent downsides and won't make games bad. You can even omit more nuanced moves like command grabs and DPs entirely and people can still like it. The problem is that these would be the only kind of games that could exist if motion controls would be permanently retired. My preferred solution would be not to remove them, but to add more characters who don't have motions.
Anyway if you've read all that, then you might think I'm making up assumptions. That I can't know for sure that this is how one-button specials would affect the game. Except they're not assumptions. They're real world observations of games that already have one-button specials.
Games with one button specials: Fantasy Strike, Smash, DNF Duel
Games with simplified-but-still-motioned specials: Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, Dragonball Fighterz, Skullgirls
Games with both: Granblue Versus, Street Fighter 6, Idol Showdown

Combos are too long

This is a really interesting complaint that comes up a lot. But what it means is one of three very different concerns that all need to be addressed in their own ways.

...because I keep getting stuck in one and dying to them

A very common and popular problem that is unfortunately born out of complete and total ignorance. Allow me to demonstrate with a clip.
Do you believe this was one combo? A really long infinite? A 100% to 0% combo? If your answer to any of these were a yes, then you are wrong. That was about six separate combos. I try to not get caught up on definitions as a rule of thumb and focus on the meaning instead, but this is a pretty big deal for this concern. Because people don't actually know the language, they misuse words all the time. They don't actually know how to express their concerns in an immediately understandable manner. This is... a huge can of worms that I won't get into for this post.
The thing about combos is that combos only work if the recipient of those combos have failed. One failure = one combo. Therefore, six separate combos means that the opponent has failed six times. But if it's the result of failure, then that must mean that success is an option, right?
Yes. It's called blocking, or more accurately, having good defense. Really focus on this bit here:
Players and characters with strong defense tend to be able to survive long offensive sequences from their opponent and take little overall damage
This leads into the next separate concern expressed in the same way.

...and there's nothing I could have done

Here's a clip. The player with the long whip (P1) looks really oppressive, right? The player with the hat (P2) had nothing they could do to stop the onslaught of combos coming their way. It was a miracle that they didn't take more damage from all of that. There's a bit of a hitch to all of this though:
None of those were combos. It wasn't oppressive at all. In the context of that clip, P2 willingly chose to do nothing but exclusively block because they wanted to see if P1 was capable of doing anything else.
What do I mean they weren't combos? They just aren't. For this specific concern, it's a simple misunderstanding of term. A sequence of attacks in quick succession are better known as strings. Not all strings are combos, but all combos are strings. What makes a string a combo is if it makes a character start physically reeling from an attack. This is a very important distinction for reasons that are irrelevant to this concern.
Okay, they're not combos but strings. Why does that matter? It still doesn't seem like P2 could have done anything. The thing with strings is that they must inevitably end. When and where they end is highly game and character dependent, but it's one of the few constants of the genre. From Street Fighter, to Smash, to Fantasy Strike. One of the most significant aspects of the genre is figuring out when someone is actually done so that you can take your turn. How a fighting game handles "the end of offense" is one of the most common ways to distinguish itself from other games. The clip I linked is a game that likes to keep things intentionally vague for the defender. Tekken famously requires you to know frame data to know when it's your time. Some games like to simplify things with rules of thumbs. Some games make it extremely short.
In the clip I shared, there were plentiful of solutions that P2 could have done that didn't require much thinking. Ignoring the DP that character has access to or any of the other moves they had, they could have ran forwards. They even had a second point to run forward.
What's really being complained about in this concern here is actually more along the lines of this:
I don't know what's going on and there's nothing I could do
This has a multitude of solutions. Some of them are tough pills to swallow. Some of them requires an adjustment of how information is conveyed. Some require slowing things way down. They all work, all with their own caveats. But you can't remove the problem entirely. It's not how video games work. It's like how you know it's safer to move while the enemy is reloading or charging or whatever.
Technically, you can make it so that it's theoretically always your time to shine regardless of what the opponent is doing. There are two games I'm aware of where this idea has been played with. A character named Baiken from Guilty Gear XX, and the Touhou games' Typhoon condition.
Nobody likes playing against Baiken. Typhoon is not a good time for anyone involved.

...and I can't be bothered

We're finally here. A complaint that actually means what it means. And it's 100%, completely, unarguably, fair. This a common complaint of fans from different series/subgenres too. There are games I love that have really long combos and I still have a limit. It's actually so common that it's been very consistently addressed:
Games with short combos exist. Games with almost no combos exist. We can go a step further: there are specific types of characters common to the genre that don't really do combos. There's usually at least one of them in most games. If you're okay with seeing them but not doing them, that's an option too.
One sidenote. The length of combos make a large difference in how games are played at a very fundamental level, beyond the combos themselves. Like everything else mentioned so far, short combos or long combos aren't better than the other. They simply offer different experiences. The problem is being shoehorned into a specific experience were one implemented genre-wide.

...and do too much damage

A bit distinct from the other concerns. It's suggesting almost a touch of death, but not quite. Fighting games do have an informal equivalent to time-to-kill from FPS that is measured in how many "touches" until you lose a round but that's a little too nuanced and tangential to get into for this.
Combos that do a lot of damage exist. This is true. There are lots of long combos. Also true. Here's one for example. It's a 30 second combo, where 17 seconds of it involves the P1 pushing buttons and then 13 seconds of watching a cinematic. You're probably not having a good time if you're on the receiving side of this.
There are some very, very important caveats. One, this particular game has an above average combo length in the first place. Two, that combo is an especially egregious example even in that game. Three, that combo is a culmination of a multitude of mistakes that required being hit by a very specific attack from P1 while P2 tried to attack, when P1 has at least 80% super meter, while P1 has nigh-max character-specific resources, while P2 is backed into a corner, while P1 has won a minigame. And it barely does enough to do 65% of a life bar. It's pretty rare for a combo this damaging to happen in most games. In some games, the opportunity can only occur once a match.
There's also the cinematic we need to talk about. Personally, I believe that the cinematic could be shorter. Especially in games where cinematic stuff happens all the time such as in Guilty Gear Strive or Tekken 7. One really big problem though:
Cinematics push copies. A very significant portion of a fighting game's marketing strategy is to showcase them because most people see something cool and think it's exciting. Think about how every time a new Mortal Kombat or Injustice comes out, gaming social media is flooded with supers and fatalities for a while. It just works. It also unfortunately has a very real effect on your personal experience when you're playing a game for >10 cumulative hours.
Games that try to make it obvious you didn't get the right answer: Guilty Gear Strive, Street Fighter 5, Skullgirls
Games with short combos: Fantasy Strike, Granblue Versus, Samurai Shodown
Games where combos don't exist: Divekick
Games that try to make it easy to do combos: Every fighting game released after 2014

There are too many buttons and it's too hard to keep track of

A pretty specific complaint that pops up time to time. And again, it's fair. Low button games do exist and actually in fact are more frequent than high button games, but that's besides the point. Let's address the primary purposes of more buttons:
I'll focus on the final point since I think the first two are self-evident. There are ways to make low-button games have the same amount of actions as high-button games. The problem is that no matter how you do it, the chances of input errors get increased. A clear delineation of input options makes being in control a lot more accessible. Which is a pretty big thing in this genre.
With a low button game, there are two choices: maintain a comparable amount of actions compared to higher buttons and accept we'll get more input errors, or accept that we'll have fundamentally less actions.
Games with two buttons: Smash, Divekick
Games with three buttons: Fantasy Strike, Granblue Versus, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, Soul Calibur
Games with four buttons: Touhou IaMP, Touhou Hisoutensoku, Persona 4 Arena, Melty Blood, Under Night, Samurai Shodown, Blazblue, Dragonball Fighterz, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, etc

Combos have no bearing on strategy

Another complaint about combos, but a lot more directed. It's a complicated concern, as misguided as it may be, isn't without reason. Doing combos at some point can feel dialed in, and getting comboed is the equivalent of getting stunned in other video games. Except it can happen multiple times in about 30 seconds, which is frustrating to a lot of people.
A previous section already covered the idea of low-combo or comboless games, so I won't repeat myself on that front. I'll instead try to make a case for combos and why they shouldn't be removed entirely.

...because it is an exercise in rote memorization

This sort of complaint comes up a lot from very specific crowds. Primarily people who have experience in platform fighters like Smash or people who are very interested in the other aspects of fighting games but specifically dismiss combos.
I'll get the elephant in the room out of the way first: what's wrong with rote memorization? There are entire genres of games pretty much dedicated to tickling that part of the brain. If you were there for the 2000's rock band/guitar hero boom, you probably took part of it too. There are competitive rote memorization games. Jeopardy has been a worldwide phenomenon for decades. There's nothing wrong with it, and it's okay to acknowledge they're not your thing. Games that deemphasize combos exist.
Okay, there's still another reason why this complaint exists. People hate losing agency when playing video games and being comboed definitely takes it away. A very common example is brought up as a solution: Smash's Directional Influence. While a player's typical agency is gone, they do gain a new form and a new "game" forms between both players with it.
DI is pretty cool, and can be fun. Not everyone likes it. Some fighting games try to add agency in their own way through a combo breaking mechanic called Burst. Killer Instinct is famous for having a very specific way of handling combos through their combo breaker mechanic. Not everyone likes these either. There are likely other ways that agency can be added that haven't been done yet. And not everyone will like them. And that's okay.
Now, let me try to sell you on the idea that losing agency while being comboed is okay. Fighting games can be a lot. Some of them relish in being a lot. They can be overwhelming to absorb everything that's going on. Not to mention the whole part where you're trying to outwit the opponent.
You need time to breathe and get your bearings back in order. And that's exactly the window that being comboed provides. You can take a mental step back and look at what's going on. How many more times can you get hit and still survive? What is everyone's resources at? Are you winning that weird tug of war minigame? What has the opponent been doing? What's the chances they're going to do the same thing when they're done with the combo? Do you have a response to that thing?
Breathers are really important. People aren't built for full-throttle thinking and action for long stretches. Video games have realized this decades ago. It's why even the most spastic, twitchy of monsters in Monster Hunter will stop in place and roar. Why bullet hell games constantly swap between hyper dense, rapid patterns and patterns where you can kinda veg out for a moment. Why plenty of Zelda/Mario bosses will make you do some slow paced jump roping before they expose their weakpoint again.
This all also applies for the person performing the combo provided that they are at total comfort with the whole sequence. It won't always be the case, but it's worth mening.

...because nobody drops them so why not cut out the middleman?

A very modern take due to the prevalence of accessible high level footage, the massive growth of fighting games overall, and due to evangelical efforts for the genre. Not to mention, the vast majority of games these days have made it very easy to do very simple combos that everyone has access to and is practical at all levels. From more lenient input buffers, to simplified and standardized motion inputs, to autocombos, and an overall philosophical change on how games address damage, it can feel like having to perform combos is unnecessary work.
But people still fail combos. Even players at the highest level when there are zero stakes. The simple increased likelihood that one can fail doing a combo affects their decision-making. If they fail, the opponent can completely turn the tables. It creates tension. It opens up wiggle-room for the defender. It gives people hope. Allow me to paint a picture:
Both players are at low health and will die in about 1.5 "average" combos. P1 gets hit first, and is getting comboed. P2 has two choices: they can do their standard combo that has little chance of failing and place their bets on winning the next interaction after the combo ends. Or they can do their more damaging combo that should kill, but if they drop it (or even if the combo is carried to completion), P2 will be significantly disadvantaged for the next interaction. Or in some cases, even potentially the rest of the round. What do they do? What should they place their chips on?
This is such a popular aspect that certain content creators take this whole concept to its logical extreme and make a game show out of it.

Fighting games need no strategy beyond button mashing and combos

This opinion has largely died out in the past decade among the more dedicated video game communities, but it does still persist. Especially among the mainstream crowd.
Ignoring everything that has already been mentioned in the post so far, let's look at this clip. A very typical and basic interaction in the genre. It may be a little reiterative to what I've already said, but here's a twelve page explanation breaking it all down.

...because everyone picks the most optimal solution

This is a particularly strange complaint. It kind of arbitrarily ignores the fact that fighting games are primarily a real-time genre. Which fundamentally means that fighting games have imperfect information. Ignoring the real time aspect and 4head game theory stuff that most people — including myself — don't actually understand aside, fighting games at their core are sort of like weighted rock paper scissors.
A single dominant strategy doesn't exist, because every strategy loses to something. You know what always picking the most logical strategy in any given situation makes you?

I don't have the reaction time for them

This is a really fun complaint, because addressing it actively involves understanding what reaction times are. Most people will not want to be convinced that their use of it has been wrong their entire lives.
What is commonly understood as reaction time is as follow: how quickly one is able to respond to stimuli. Simple enough. The thing is that this is not actually how most people respond to things except as a very last resort.
There's an excerpt I like to share. It's not at all a formal study and it's pretty anecdotal. You don't have to read through it all, but I do recommend it. This is the relevant part though. The rest of the excerpt then explains how people are hitting something that is physically unreactable with the human body: because they're reacting to something else long, long, looong before the ball goes airborne.
This is what good reaction times really are. People recognizing a situation long before it happens, and reacting accordingly by adjusting their rhythm. Trying to rely on pure stimuli to react is ignoring the entirety of a countdown and only responding to the "Go!" There's a reason why basically every track event starts with a countdown through the words "On your marks".
This is actually such an age old argument that someone made a flash game to make a point back in 2011. You can get it going through an emulator if you'd like, but that's optional. I'll be explaining under the assumption you haven't touched it at all.
The two moves that you are meant to block here is the weird flip kick and the moon. There's something really important to note here: both moves take about 256/288ms (moon/flip) before they can actually hurt you. On a technical level, they land squarely within the average human reaction time.
Millia Blocker is really fucking hard. Most fighting game players can't actually react in time. But in the actual game these moves are from, blocking them isn't that big of a deal in most situations. You only ever really see these two moves in very specific situations that often occur a mile away. It ends up becoming a fairly binary "are they gonna use them or not" sort of situation where you're already blocking with whatever you decided to go with, sort of like pre-firing, or by blocking both. Defending against them is so little of a deal these days that more experienced players tend to opt for more complicated options instead.

...because I'm too old

When I first started playing fighting games ten years ago, the top players were in their mid-thirties. Most of them are still top players in their forties and the young rising stars of the time are now in their thirties and top players as well. Something like 40% of the current top 100 tennis players are over thirty. Baseball and soccer both have very significant 30+ year old representation at the highest levels. 20% of the NBA is comprised of dudes in their thirties.
You can go out to your closest metropolitan community park or gym where random people meet up for a game of ball once a week. You're probably going to find an older person playing and keeping up with the rest of them, if the group isn't primarily older in the first place. And they'll steamroll the average high school senior who only play sports for gym class. They could probably keep up with the average HS sports club too.
Why? It's not that they're physically built different. It's because they decided to continue giving a damn about a game of ball in their older age. It's a conscious decision they've made to balance ball on top of whatever responsibilities they already have. This whole reaction time business ultimately boils down to a lack of experience, not actual reaction times.

...because too much is going on

It gets easier. If you decide to stick with it that is. When you're brand new to something, you're at a total sensory and information overload. It's difficult to parse through all that and you get decision paralysis, but it gets easier. This is known as cleaning up your mental stack. Or more concisely, turning the unfamiliar into familiar, into routine.
If you have a driver's license, remember when you first learned how to drive. There are 2-3 pedals for some reason, you need to keep track of what's behind you and to your sides, what's up ahead, the traffic laws, how the fuck a steering wheel works, etc. Forget trying to have a conversation or turning on the AC, you're way too focused on trying to not to crash the car. But eventually you get used to it all and now you do something very complex almost automatically. Some people are so used to it that they think texting during it all is no big deal. Please don't text and drive.

I don't like how you have to take out your credit card to unlock characters instead of unlocking them like you used to

This is a really interesting complaint born from yet another misunderstanding. In the overall microtransaction discourse, this can be valid regarding things like cosmetics. The good ol' SFxT DLC fiasco during the early days of DLC really does not help things either. But I'm going to spell it out in absolutely no uncertain terms:
You always had to pay money to get new characters in fighting games. The "unlockable" characters were not new characters, they were always part of the base roster.
When most people look back on history, they look at the character roster a game ends with and compare it to a post-DLC era roster and note the differences. But it's missing such a fundamental detail that is always conveniently forgotten in these complaints: fighting games used to have an insane amount of rereleases. Consider the age ol' meme of Super Street Fighter 2 Super Championship Turbo Edition.
Ever considered why that was? It's because fighting games were console ports of arcade games, where changing updating the game was relatively "trivial" on the arcade's end. Consoles? Consoles couldn't patch games until the 360/PS3 era. Which is around the time DLC started being a thing outside of PC games. And do you know what one of the main selling points of new patches/editions were? New characters. Compare Street Fighter 2's original roster of eight eventually growing up to a total of 16 in its final version. And you had to fork over money to buy the same game again to get those new characters.
To obfuscate things even further, each franchise had their own nomenclature to refer to patch versions. Street Fighter did "editions", reserving new numbers for actually brand new games (ala Alpha/Zero and 3). Tekken just increased the number. King of Fighters used the year they came out. Both franchises didn't properly distinguish whether it was a brand new game or a new patch either.
Anyway, it's 2023 now. Companies usually don't sell patches for $60-70 a pop anymore. Balance updates are entirely free these days with characters being the only things you have to purchase.

Fighting games are too expensive to get all the characters

Yup. Fighting games don't exactly have a better monetization method yet either, so we're kinda stuck with it.
In practice, it surprisingly doesn't matter that much. Even with the entire roster available, the vast majority of players don't actually play more than 2-3 characters. For most games, learning new characters can be really difficult for people. A new character can feel like playing a different version of the game in of itself. Combined with the fact that most people have struggle readjusting muscle memory, a lot of people put very little effort in actually playing new characters.
Alright so learning them is hard, but surely people need to study new characters because matchups are important, right? They totally are. But most people don't actually bother since the community is far more casual than people outside realize. That said, most people do agree that we should be able to try out characters for free. And hopefully that becomes standard in the genre. In any case, it sucks. But for most people, it's an inconvenience and not a money sink.

Fighting games lack progression

My personal disdain towards progression systems and love for abstract improvement aside, it's true. Fighting games lack engaging progression systems that are popular amongst multiplayer games. And I do believe that a well-made progression system would actually do wonders to resolve a lot of the misunderstandings found in this post. But forget well-made, most fighting games don't have any progression.
Until then, if your desire to play multiplayer games rely on concrete and highly measurable goals, fighting games are going to be a hard pass for a long while.

2023.06.02 03:08 Thunder_Cylcops3456 Mario and Luigi: IndethiCrust

I've been thinking about a Mario and Luigi rpg metroidvania with my characters and the characters from Shantae, Skullgirls, Overwatch, League of Legends, Amulet, Cleopatra in Space, Bleach, Double Cross, Homestuck, Minecraft Story Mode, Little Witch Academia,My Hero Academia, Kill la Kill, Dan the Man, Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts, Kemono Michi, Basin Lake City Magical Girls, The Only Living Boy, Steven Universe, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power in it. Mario and Luigi are joined by Cait, Kim, Trel, Kalit, Aletheia, Ether, Astra, Mynoghra, Cethleann, Qalkniel, Emily, Navin, Trellis, Cogsley, Miskit, Cleo, Akila, Brian, Khensu, Kipo, Wolf, June, Tama, Zahra, Skip, Nonon, Uzi, Ira, Nui, Satsuki, Ryuko, Erik, Zee, Morgan, Dan, Josie, Steven, Garnet, Pearl, Amethyst, Lapis, Peridot, Bismuth, Connie, Tenya, Momo, Kyoka, Fumikage, Keigo, Mirio, Tsuyu, Mina, Ochaco, Katsuki, Izuku, Renji, Mayuri, Rukia, Toshiro, Yoruichi, Kisuke, Ichigo, Ichibei, Jushiro, Isane, Sui-Feng, Nuna, Tungar, Leilani, Ren, Kampan, Karkat, Vriska, Kanaya, Terezi, Aradia, Nepeta, Sollux, Eridan, Meenah, Equius, Gamzee, Tavros, Kankri, Mituna, Petra, Lukas, Ivor, Gabriel, Olivia, Axel, Radar, Xara, Nell, Soren, Shantae, Rottytops, Sky, Bolo, Plink, Vera, Zapple, Harmony, Mercy, Lucio, Orisa, Baptise, Tracer, Zarya, DVA, Filia, Cerebella, Nadia, Painwheel, Peacock, Parasoul, Valentine, Squigly, Big Band, Eliza, Beowulf, Annie, Umbrella, Leona, Janna, Volibear, Soraka, Zoe, Lissandra, Sylas, Thresh, Zeri,Rakan, Akali, Illaoi, Neeko, Lillia, Morgana, Blitzcrank, Lux, Braum, Taliyah, Quinn, Rell, Seraphine, Ahri, Ziggs, Orianna, Heimerdinger, LeBlanc, Sivir, Vi, Garen, Jinx, Sona, Katarina, Fiora, Lulu, Gwen, Poppy, Ahri, Kayle, Zac, Nidalee, Ivern, Akko, Constanze, Lotte, Sucy, Genzo, Shigure, Hanako, Carmilla, Celes, Adora, Catra, Bow, Glimmer, Perfuma, Mermista, Sea Hawk, Entrapta, Scorpia, Netossa, and Spinnerella.

The game takes place in the Lumirian Kingdom which has many punk punk styles and cultures. The Mario Bros do get their attacks along with the later characters. The storyline features collecting pieces of the Matrix of Wisdom to stop Grindelwald who is now the dragon to Azathoth. Azathoth is the man behind all of the events happening in the game and he has lots of new powers and even has a massive palace that serves as the final dungeon. But there's lot of voice acting for the characters. There's even twenty Bowser boss battles. The Beanish do get appearances in the Lumirian Kingdom. Azathoth does have his own elemental form. There are many guest fighters such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Hulk, Magneto, Blackheart, Juggernaut, Shuma-Gorath, Wolverine, Psylocke, B.B Hood, Lord Raptor, Hsien-Ko, Jedah, Felicia, Anakaris, Q-Bee, Rikuo, Guile, Balrog, Akuma, M. Bison, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, Juri, Gouken, Ingrid, Akira, Zaki, Natsu, Hinata, Kyoko, Batsu, Tiffany Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight joining the heroes. There are holiday modes such as Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, April Fools, Valentine's Day, Easter, Lunar New Year, Diwali, St Patrick's Day, Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of the July, and Talk like a Pirate day in it. Calterburry Castle is the player headquarters and it gets expanded and upgraded.

There are lots of video game things such as game mods and expansion packs. I mean, what suggestions do you think I should do for this cool metroidvania and these cool characters that join Mario and Luigi? There should be evil clones of those sweet characters along with many stock monsters and other mooks and even standard FPS enemies, right?

Kikuzakari: Once again, congratulations on your earnest win Maesua HIT!
Kikuzakari: o.o Sorry, is the mic okay? Let's move a little more over here. Hahaha. You're trying to impersonate a baseball player's winning interview?
Senra: Yeah, yeah.
Kikuzakari: But really, congratulations once again.
Senra: Thanks
Kikuzakari: In the match against Snow-san. I know there's been a lot of times where you've lost to Snow-san. This time though, in winners, and both times actually, it was close matches, but you managed to endure. Did you have your counterplay prepared well?
Senra: To begin with, I was good against Mario. I'm pretty decent at the footsies. I'm a player that focuses more on that type of play. So I had the idea that I could do well against Mario. So to be losing up until now, it was pretty tough emotionally. When I sleep, and when I wake up, when I'm brushing my teeth, that's all I think about.
Kikuzakari: I see, that's what it is.
Senra: And what else... Snow-san plays a type of smash that's really compatible with my style. The way he interacts.
Kikuzakari: Definitely, after what you've said.
Senra: That's why, he's a player I look up to. Haha
Kikuzakari: I see. haha Today, in the KO race, you were having a lot of trouble with Snow-san's up smashes. How did you deal with those moments, like there was one where you both upsmashed at the same time and KOed each other (?), what's your thought process there?
Senra: Up smash is scary T_T noooooo~
Kikuzakari: Very simple. But watching it play out, you were very conscious of it, and we could see you baiting out the up smash out of shield for example. Was that part of your counterplay?
Senra: That's right. Well, rather than a counterplay, it's just normal reading, but Snow-kun was throwing out a lot of up smashes, or I put him in a scenario where he had to throw out more. So he make some mistakes and throw out upsmash out of shield. Well, well ,well
Kikuzakari: Haha. You seem happy
Senra: Of course, I am. I've probably entered 80 of these ...
Kikuzakari: ... Well, Maesuma HIT is on its 70th edition right now.
Senra: Hahahahaa. It's my first win.
Kikuzakari: I see, I see. Of course you're happy. What's the next tournament you'll be at coming soon?
Senra: June 17th's Kowllllooon
Kikuzakari: I see, KOWLOON, really left a mark with Senra-senshu's performance there. I'm sure it's an important tournament to you too.
Senra: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I just really like those guys's passion.
Kikuzakari: Yeah, me too. So you'll be showing off your results at KOWLOON with today's polish?
Senra: That's really the plan. I'll do my best.
Kikuzakari: I see you talking about your mental on twitter all the time
Senra: Hahahaha
Kikuzakari: So being able to stay on the top like this, well it's not possible to always be up, but riding the wave.
Senra: Nononono
Kikuzakari: That's a no?
Senra: points up I'm only looking at #1
Kikuzakari: I see. Well that's a good thing, as a player. Always aiming for #1. Today too, while aiming for the top you were able to take it, congratulations once again for winning Maesuma HIT #70.
Senra: Congrats!
Kikuzakari: Congrats!
Kikuzakari: By the way, today is... how is it?
Senra: Is there something?
Kikuzakari: At Maesuma HIT, there's exhibitions.
Senra: Ahh, but lately, they haven't done any.
Kikuzakari: Is that so? Maybe it depends on the time. How is it I wonder?
Senra: I want to spar with Maedakun
Kikuzakari: How's an exhibition?
Kikuzakari: Ooooh, we'll do it! That's great, Sen-chan!
Senra: Oooooh! I've always looked up to this!
Kikuzakari: Of course you'd want to. By the way, besides Jigglypuff, lately, you've tried Lucina, and Wario. Regarding your characters, you mentioned earlier about reading and footsies, I've been thinking you have more fighters available now, but how is it?
Senra: Eh? Those characters suck. Well, Lucina is strong, but... compared to Jigglypuff, there's something missing.
Kikuzakari: Well, if we're talking about Senra-san, it's that Jigglypuff is strong.
Senra: mmm well that may be.
Kikuzakari: It is. Well, today's exhibition, I don't know what it will be with the character picks, it's something between Senra-san and Maedakun. I look forward to it.
Senra: Yes! Yes ! Yes! I'll do my best
Kikuzakari: After the exhibition, there'll be another interview
Senra: For real?
Kikuzakari: For real
Senra: For real
Kikuzakari: For real. You know, it's tough matching your pace ahahaha
Senra: I see :D
Kikuzakari: I'm a more serious guy so
Senra: Well, I'll be more serious for you then, Kiku-san
Kikuzakari: Then please, thanks.
(stands up straight)
Senra: Thanks.
Kikuzakari: Alright, hurry up and get to your exhibition

(Last stock last hit, Senra kills Maedakun with a Rollout coming in from off stage)
Maedakun: Rollout is trash.
Kikuzakari: That's all you had to say? Then, congratulations to Senra-kun for taking the exhibition too.
Senra: Thanks, thanks
Kikuzakari: Uh, why did you use Rollout?
Senra: Well, Rollout, after all, is the move I believe in the most
Kikuzakari: Believe in!? You only used it once in the tournament Hahahaha
Senra: Hahahaha, no, I just really felt like it. There's a lot of Zeldas on smashmate, right? Just a habit from that.
Kikuzakari: Maedakun is pressing the bad button off camera here. Haha. But in the match, Maedakun is a real tricky one, right?
Senra: Really is.
Kikuzakari: Right? There was that point in the middle of the match too. He's serious, it's an exhibition, and it's a bo1, but Meadakun really reads the person. In neutral, he really tries to pull one. You really can't experience this if you're not the champion.
Senra: For real. I've always looked up to this moment, watching online Maesuma.
(some jokes I don't understand, sorry)
Kikuzakari: Maesuma has a storied history. Well, you don't intend to end it as the champion like this right?
Senra: Yep
Kikuzakari: Next week, you'll be here too right?
Senra: Of course, of course
Kikuzakari: Then next time will be a defending battle.
Senra: Not at all.
Kikuzakari: Eh? You won, so you're defending.
Senra: No, not at all
Kikuzakari: That's unexpectedly mild mannered of you
Senra: Well, I haven't beaten Ryuoh-kun yet.
Kikuzakari: Ah, you want to get a win on Ryuoh-kun
Senra: Hiiiiiii, I can't beat him
Kikuzakari: mhm
Senra: I can't beat him, so I want to beat him
Kikuzakari: I see. The next Maesuma HIT will be beating Ryuoh-kun and winning it.
Senra: And Yoshidora and acola too.
Kikuzakari: There's a lot more goals to beat coming here.
(Maedakun off mic)
Kikuzakari: ooooh, acola-kun will be coming by soon.
Senra: Ah, it's because I won then. Haha
Kikuzakari: That might be. Haha Can't let him be the champion. He'll be coming swinging that up tilt. Or maybe it will be electric.
Senra: That's a bit gruesome.
Kikuzakari: Haha. Well, either way, there's lots of players you want to beat so we'll continue to watch over you. Congratulations once again to Senra-senshu on winning Maesuma HIT #70
Senra: Thank you
Kikuzakari: Good luck next week too
Senra: I'll do my best
Closing remarkSenra: Congrats to Senra for winning without losing a set, etc.
Maedakun shows up. Talks about how his symptoms were across his face, like 20 hours ago, but they're not visible anymore so he came by. He's afraid if he does too much, the symptoms will worsen, so he's taking it easy. He'll leave commentary to Kikuzakari, and Lucia, but he's been behind the scenes today.
He'll be heading out to Hiroshima next week for the Itsukushima tournament to play, as some time off before Maesuma TOP, and then a week after too, so less online tournaments, etc. Talks about working on more creative aspects more, etc. during this time.
He wants to do his best when he tries something, but he doesn't want to overdo it, so lately it hasn't been his best.
Mainly he's okay right now and he's gonna do less to be less overworked.

2023.05.31 18:23 k819799amvrhtcom Self-Imposed Videogame Challenge: Trans Ally Edition!

TL;DR (spoilers): You, and anyone who wants to try the challenge with you if it's a multiplayer game, are a trans ally, and your job is to collect $25,000 or the equivalent thereof in in-game money (rounded up to the next smallest divisible part) for your transgender friend's transition in less than 31 in-game years. Everything is allowed. You do not have to finish the game.
Want a new and interesting way to play your favorite videogame? I got one with a transgender theme that is interesting, challenging, easy to implement, and compatible with almost any videogame, so it's a Mario challenge, a Pokémon challenge, a Minecraft challenge, and so on and so forth, all at the same time!

The Plot

You, and anyone who wants to try the challenge with you if it's a multiplayer game, are a trans ally, and your job is to collect money to pay for your transgender friend's transition. You win by acquiring enough in-game money. You are allowed to consult the internet, use passwords from the internet, commit in-game crimes, purchase microtransactions, abuse glitches, use cheat codes, and even hack the game to reach your goal, but is it really worth the effort? You are kinda expected to use the easiest way to win the challenge that you know of.

The Rules

Rule #1: You have to get the money you need for a transition. In order to make the challenge less boring for you, I did the research for you and came to the result of $25,000. However, this value might change if you try out this challenge in the far future, meaning that this challenge technically changes depending on when you attempt it. The value is expected to rise even further with inflation, or perhaps it might be reduced with the invention of more efficient surgery techniques. If the USA ever starts getting the universal healthcare system or a societal breakdown makes these surgeries impossible, this challenge will refer to the cost of the legal name & gender change, instead. And if that also ever becomes free then just choose a different country where it isn't free yet. But this is not going to change anytime soon (When do you think this challenge will become obsolete?) so, for now, you just have to remember to collect $25,000 in in-game money. This applies to every game that uses $ for in-game money. If the game uses £ or ¥ or € or any other real-world value, you'll have to convert it. Here's an online tool for converting currencies, which also supports various cryptocurrencies and custom rate dates. If the maximum amount of in-game money you can hold at once is less then the challenge is simply impossible. This only applies to non-videogame currencies.
Rule #2: If the in-game currency is fictional then you'll have to convert it (rounded up to the next smallest divisible part). It's easy if you can buy in-game money with real money, even if that feature doesn't work because of a glitch or something. Otherwise, you'll have to do some research. If you can't find any direct information on the internet, I would suggest starting here to get a basic idea on how to calculate that. If there are multiple in-game currencies you are allowed to split the price of the transition among them in any way you want, provided you know the value of all of them. If there is no in-game currency then you are allowed to use points instead. If the game doesn't have points either then you can try to invent a substitute currency but it has to be something that would actually work as a substitute currency in the world you're in. If that's not possible either then the only way for you to win this challenge is to raise real money by doing a let's play of the game. But then you'll have to actually pay for a real trans person's transition (yourself included) or donate the money to transgender-related causes to actually win the challenge. Here's a website that lets you donate for transgender causes. If the amount of in-game money you can hold at once is less or you were unable to find out how much you need then you are also allowed to simply collect the maximum possible amount instead because games will never ask you for more money than you can hold for a single product, meaning that this would have to be the in-game prize of a transition, as transitions are always for only a single person. This only applies to videogame currencies.
Rule #3: You do not need to finish the game. All you need to do to win this challenge is to get the money somehow. Please keep in mind that the exchange rate isn't constant. The exact amount you need to win the challenge has to be enough in the moment when you have the amount. You automatically win the challenge the moment this is the case.
Rule #4: You need to get the money in less than 31 in-game years. This number was calculated by subtracting the age at which children begin to have an innate sense of their own gender (4 years) from the average lifespan of a trans person (35 years). If the game has time-travelling elements, you are allowed to use those to extend the time limit. However, it only counts if this actually involves time itself and not just the timer. The same also goes the other way around: Travelling into the future or even moving in relativistic speeds will decrease the time limit. If the time limit runs out, I hope you have a way to return back to the past later!
Rule #5: If you can choose between multiple difficulty settings, you are allowed to choose the easiest one. In fact, you are expected to. Trans people are already on hard mode and the idea of being an ally is to specifically use the possibilities given to you to help those with fewer possibilities than you. If you have the option to select an easier difficulty setting which would make it easier for you to win this challenge, use it. Even if you're already used to playing on a higher difficulty mode. Not doing so would be considered bad strategy on your part. You are allowed to choose a higher difficulty setting, but please only do so if this actually gives you some advantages, like more rewards, more levels, or faster gameplay. This challenge gives you no bonus points for selecting a higher difficulty setting.
Rule #6: Emulation, and all tricks that come with it, are explicitly allowed. Doing so might be against the law but it is explicitly not against the rules of this challenge. The reason for this is because being transgender has been illegal for a long time and still is in many states, forcing many people to break the law in order to live their lives. The police have historically targeted trans and gender non-conforming folks. Stonewall was a riot against police brutality. I am not advocating for doing anything illegal. I am, however, saying that you should never use the law to argue for the morality of anything trans-related, as doing so would be disrespectful towards a huge part of transgender history. Therefore, this rule will remain in effect even if being transgender ever becomes legal worldwide.
In order to make the challenge even less boring for you, I have started researching loads of fictional currencies and how much money you would have to collect there for this challenge so you don't have to.

The values are not guaranteed to be accurate. In fact, I have found many cases of contradictory information on the internet. But you don't care about that anyway, do you? This isn't about the exact value anyway. These are all meant to be rough estimates to give you a sense of scale.

The Motivation

I was inspired by my Pokémon Trans Ally challenge that is about collecting money for a trans person's surgery. If you actually attempt this challenge you'll see that it'll usually be a very long and tedious challenge that will require a lot of experimentation, long-term planning, and doing the same things over and over again for a very long time, especially if you wanna try this as a speedrun. If the challenge bores you out, well, that is the point! The challenge is meant to give people with little or no sense of money an impression of how much money this really is! Now, you could argue that this challenge could theoretically be used to visualize any amount of money, and you would technically be correct, but I still think that a transgender transition is one of the best matches for this challenge because:
  1. A transition is always only for one person. We aren't talking about a company buying another company or a country investing in more infrastructure. This is something within the realm of a single person so it makes sense to have this be a challenge for a single person or a small group.
  2. This is not a luxury item like a famous painting or a private jet. Overwhelming scientific evidence proves that this is a medical necessity that trans people require in order to live like the majority of people. It is not something you want but something you need. So you can really say that acquiring all this money is really something that they have to go through. Therefore, unless you are transgender yourself, I would really recommend you to actually play the challenge until the end, even if it takes you years to actually do so. Not for your enjoyment but to acknowledge trans people's struggles and maybe also to protest against the gatekeeping system.
  3. Unlike people who regularly need medications, the transgender transition is a once-in-a-lifetime thing and is therefore compatible with a challenge that you only play through once and then never again.
  4. Once your transition is over, it cannot be taken from you.
  5. It is not possible to request the costs to be paid for you if you can prove that you cannot afford it, meaning the only way to get it is to actually get the money.
  6. Being trans is not an illness or a disability. Trans people never did anything wrong, neither deliberately nor accidentally. They are simply born with a condition that requires them to get the money. Trans people are therefore as guilt-free as a typical videogame hero.
Do you know anything more expensive that fulfills all those criteria?

The Fun Facts

/uj If you donate gold in Gaia Online, the company will donate money to charity. I find this mechanic to be a really good idea and I would like to see it more often because it enables players to support the less fortunate without having to donate their own money. Just imagine if every game on this list gave you the option to donate $25,000 worth of in-game money which would then be donated to transgender causes and unlock the Trans Ally achievement! I know it would be very cumbersome to unlock, but completionists would definitely go for it and also, it would be done for a good cause!
/rj Did you know you can make it so that every time an amount of money is shown, its value is converted into transgender transitions?
Simply get Universal Automatic Currency Converter, then scroll down to Custom display and enter the following:

2023.05.31 17:23 RelevantMinute8343 NEW SERIES:worth the hate or just stupid hate? (I know this name sucks) episode: the idea block: mean and dumb or stupidly ahead of its time?

link to the episode:
this is new series I made where I watch and rate an not very known episode that is Controversial and see if it's worth the hate or if it's a actually good episode for the first episode we have the first episode of 2015 the idea block
so why is this one controversial? well it's because this episode was according to the Wiki "painting the fanbase in a bad light"
and yeah this episode is rude to the fanbase as there basically just them fighting and never agreeing on what plot smg4 stories should be. huh, this feels really familiar it kind of feels like the sub that I'm posting this is the same thing huh? nah I must be imagining things.
anyways it makes sense why people don't like this one but do I share this feeling?
well no. This episode is great first of this episode predicts charter deaths with a fans story where Luigi dies and Mario goes insane and it's pretty insane that the fact that smg4 made fun of charter deaths and now he does them.
in fact, all the jokes in this episode are pretty funny there are a lot of gems n this one I also like how smg4 just wants a good idea, and all these weird shit happens it's just really fun
but what are the bad things well I don't like how they paint fans as asses it was a little annoying to me I can't think of anything else but it is really annoying and it kind of ruins this episode everything else is pretty good but not amazing

overall:8/10 great episode
that's all also please give me another name for this series and request me an episode only rules that it can't be a popular hatted episode

2023.05.31 17:10 MD-68000 What were (or still are) the most popular retro game consoles and handhelds in your country?

My experience as a 90s brazilian kid was like this:
Common consoles and handhelds:
- Sega Master System: Thanks to Tec Toy's efforts and Nintendo/Gradiente being too late, Sega was extremely successful in Brazil, starting with the Master System. The console had many exclusive games and models here, being a recurrent choice for low-income families.
Along with the Mega Drive, it's a console that's still (*awfully*) manufactured here. Tec Toy really needs that nostalgia money to live.
- Sega Mega Drive (A.K.A. Sega Genesis): The most successful 16-bit console here. Once again, it had many exclusive bundles, models and even a special cart to access your bank account!
- Super Nintendo: More expansive and a bit less popular than the Mega Drive, but still extremely beloved. Games like Super Mario World, International Superstar Soccer Deluxe and Top Gear (SPECIALLY Top Gear. For some reason, this game has a HUGE fandom here) are fondly remembered to this day.
- Game Boy: Exploded in popularity due to the Pokémon fever in the 90s.
- PlayStation: Ate Sega and Nintendo's lunch in the country due to rampant piracy. Modded consoles and bootleg games were a totally common sight at flea markets.
- PlayStation 2: Same thing as the PlayStation. It's still popular among low-income families.
- Xbox 360: The PlayStation 2 of the 7th gen and Microsoft's first mega hit here, I think. Nowadays, its an option for people who want something more than a PS2 but can't afford a XONE/PS4 or PS5/Series S/X.
Clones and other stuff:
Dynavision 3: A rather popular NES clone factured by the late Dynacom, a brazilian electronics company. It used to be another target for those who couldn't afford newer consoles.
Polystation: Another NES clone, but similar to a PlayStation. The spawn of the devil, the ultimate birthday killer and a favorite among naive mothers. It's still sold with other NES clones in cheap electronics stores.
Brick Game: If you are from a third world country, you probably played Tetris or some kind of racing game with one of these. Another hit among low-income families.
Tamagochi: Used to be sold in flea markets. Many school kids (specially girls) had one.
LCD Games: Too many to be listed. I think the Enduro-style models were the most sold ones.

2023.05.31 07:03 lcelerate Nami Komuro has had a great career path

I originally created this thread to correct a misconception where her role in Awakening was vastly overstated. In reality that was the first FE game she was involved in and she was one of many involved in the role. After having a dig through the credits of Awakening, Fates and Engage, I was impressed by how far she's come along.

Game Works


Let's take a look at Awakening story credits. She was one of the scenario writers alongside the likes of Kouhei Maeda but the scenario supervisor was Yuri Hattori so he probably had a bigger role in how Awakening was written than Komuro.


Scenario Supervisor

However, it can be argued that she was the one behind how the characters were written.

Character Planning

She was also involved in events but once again, not the event supervisodirector and her role is shred by several others.

Event Director

Event Script


Her role is more pronounced in Fates. Once again, she is in charge of character writing but now she is given sole credit for Main Scenario in Birthright and Conquest so she's the main brain behind both those plots despite being supervised by Maeda.

Story Supervisor

Original Story

Main Scenario Birthright and Conquest Paths

Character Planning & Voice Text


(Red Entertainment Corporation)



It is finally Engage where her writing role is even more pronounced than even Fates where she is the scenario director and isn't being supervised by anyone. She's directing the scenario writers who come from outside IS and Nintendo so she has the most agency this time around and in comparison to the previous two entries.

Scenario Director

Synthese Co., Ltd.

Scenario Writer


Scenario Writer

She has had a successful career promotion path considering how she went from a new scenario writer back in Awakening to the Main scenario writer in Fates who was being supervised and now a scenario director.

2023.05.31 06:15 names_are_useless Any Quake Sprite Artists?

I've been a fan of a 2D Mario platform fangame called Mushroom Kingdom Fusion (MKF) for many years now. It's gone in and out of development, but right now has a very dedicated modding team.
What does a Mario Fangame have to do with Quake? MKF is truly a "fusion" game that includes lots of different franchises. Did you know there's a Quake Level? It's honestly one of my favorites.
Recently the MKF Team is looking for Sprite Artists that can either find or create improved Quake Enemy Sprites. The Quake Enemies in question are:
Considering Quake is a 3D Shooter, you can guess that acquiring sprites of these enemies aren't easy, and doing the work of creating the sprites is even more difficult. I'm certainly no Spriter myself, but I decided to throw a Hail Mary and see if any might exist that would like to contribute to this excellent fangame.

2023.05.30 21:34 RamboBambiBambo [TotK] Anyone else wonder what we might see as DLC equipment options?

So LoZ: TotK is going to have DLC. And going off of how DLC was in BotW, I cannot help but wonder what new equipment items we may see added to the roster for TotK's gear in the form of new weapons, bows, shields, and armor that may be bundled into any of the DLC packs coming around.
So I cannot help but theorize and predict that we may get any of the following -





And there you have it.
Just figured I would share my expectations of what we could see as DLC legacy items coming to Tears of the Kingdom in the coming year and how I would have some of them provide a bonus effect.
Thoughts anyone?

2023.05.30 15:47 Electronic_Oven_3328 Ranking The Paper Mario games (My opinion, TTYD stans beware.)

  1. The Origami King This one might be slightly biased since its the first Paper Mario game I ever played. However, the Origami King takes your average Paper Mario game and flips it into a whole new direction. It has a lot of good qualities other games didn't really have to me. It has a story people can enjoy that isn't forgotten 2 seconds later (Unlike TTYD) It doesn't overstay its welcome by introducing 1000 new mechanics, but keeping things fresh along the way (Unlike Sticker Star Introducing Too Many, and Color splash too little, the same the entire game.) The battle system isn't perfect, but its puzzling and more than just pressing a button. (Unlike SPM.) Additionally, the game has a lot of replayablity. The amount of content it offers (being the newest game) is astounding, as well as challenge potential. Looking for a challenge? Beat bosses the unintended way. Looking to explore unexplored places? Try get a trophy. Want to kill yourself from the inside? Go on youtube and find all the collectibles. It has many secrets and potential to be a game you can play forever. I played the game since a year after its release, and still haven't got every single trophy. Finally, it has decent characters. In OK, every character can be seen multiple times, and with its replayablity, you can really get to knoow them.
  2. Paper Mario PM is a good middle ground. Its the start of the series, and it has a good battle system, slightly above average story and slightly above average characters. However, thats also what kills the game, sort of. Since its the first game, it doesnt really have much content, and not much replayablity either except for challenge runs. However, it serves its purpose and is definitely better than others.
  3. Super Paper Mario SPM is either a great game or a horrible game, depending on what you like to see in a game. Story? Perfect, the best of all of the games. Battle System? No. Its a sidescroller (with unbalanced combat) Characters? Sort of. Some memorable ones are never mentioned again, but the main plot keeps the main ones in, which is the main thing. If I were to rank this on story and characters alone, It would be 1. However, the Battle system (or rather lack thereof) like everyone says, drags this game down. However, its still very easy to get into and enjoy at the end. However, despite the good amount of postgame content, it is still forgettable.
  4. The Thousand Year Door. The rant you've all been waiting for! Okay, so whats my problem with the game. The battle system, sure, is the best thing since sliced bread, but everything else sort of falls apart. I have 2 main issues with the game. Partners Unlike most other people, I actually dont like partners as a mechanic. Partners take away the spotlight from the person your with all game. TOK technically has partners, but theres only 4 (5 if you actually backtracked with recolored bowser junior just to see his effect) Partners are also basically just a meatshield. You get more partners the more you progress, and you have so many of them that when one goes down it doesnt really matter. In TOK, the partners dont have health, only you do. This can make the game really easy at times, as well as make the partners boring. I went from "Two friends, me and Goombella, off to save the world." to "SHUT THE FUCK UP BOBBERY" Story. The story is okay, but if you think about it its basically just bowser kidnaps peach except bowser is an eldrich god. Sure, theres a save the world aspect there somewhere, but thats only revealed later, and it isnt even interesting at all. Most of the game feels like a 20 hour long sidequest, when your waiting for the story to get back on topic. It has good replayability though, with optional challenges, but not as much as say, TOK. However, it’s the 2nd game, so I can cut it some slack.
  5. Color Splash I can see the direction Color Splash was trying to go in. It didn't really have turn based combat like the others, but it was still trying to be a "middle ground" game, like Paper Mario. However, it drastically failed at that. Lets start with the worst. The mechanics are the worst part of the game by far. The game basically gives you instructions and leaves. You either dont know what to do and get confused and have to look on the wiki, or you know what to do and its all so painfully boring with nothing new whatsoever. This is also supported by the one "pillar" the game is supposed to be held up by, the Things. Sure, they're cool, but it also makes one of 3 things happen. "Wow, I'm such a gamer, I'm going to beat a boss without the thing card I need. This is gonna be hard bu- Oh, right, its literally impossible. Morton one shots you, Iggy takes no damage, Ludwig takes no damage, Wendy basically oneshots you, Larry keeps healing himself, Lemmy takes no damage, and Roy cant be attacked. The only bosses beatable without thing cards are The Lava Bubble, Kamek, and Petey." "I dont like gaming. I'm just going to use some wayy too high damage thing cards to oneshot everything I see as soon as I've gotten rid of its "barrier". These thing cards are op and trivialize all other cards since you can just regen them." "Oh wow, I missed one thing card, I have to backtrack. Oh wow, I really needed to do the 'bonus" round of sniffit or whiffit to progress? Thats annoying." Other than the mechanics shitshow, its an average game.
  6. Sticker Star. Enough said.
Edit: Removed Some Rant about TTYD and placed it above Color Splash. I dissed the games replayablity a bit too hard to say, Color Splash. I also remembered how much I really hate thing cards, and how much TTYD's music SLAPS.
I'm sorry, but I love TTYD's music far too much. (especially the battle theme)
