    I am now wondering how many of y'all use the hard r whenever you are in your safe spaces.

    How many of y'all accidentally use the n-word when you get excited?   Just trying to see something.

    If you are digital only and living with bad internet or bandwidth caps then size concerns make sense to me.
     
    On the other hand if we're talking about the Switch specifically then the biggest game is something like 30GB, and 256GB+ SD cards are both cheap and plentiful.
     
    Switch doesn't run at a high resolution so large textures and assets aren't necessary. Super Mario World being 2.9GB doesn't seem like something someone would need to write an article about when it seems like lots of games on the platform are small anyway: https://www.nintendolife.com/forums/nintendo-switch/nintendo_switch_game_file_sizes?start=80
     
    Honestly I'm more concerned about the Switch's lackluster internal storage size rather than the size of games themselves.  32GB seems like a pretty embarrassing amount of storage for a device made in 2017.  If the Switch had shipped with something more appropriate like 128GB/256GB, I don't think anyone would be writing about game sizes on the platform at all.
     
    Anyway it's just an observation.  I had fun with my Switch the few times I used it.  I'll crack open my copy of Ring Fit Adventure eventually...

    I'm just saying I don't know if I'd call it 'compression wizardry'.  Games that don't have a lot of data are gonna be small no matter what.
     
    The whole modern emphasis on install sizes in general seems a bit odd to me to begin with tbh.  People posting entire articles about how much space a game or application takes up seems very 1990s to me. 🤷‍♂️

    It wasn't popular because it barely ran.
     
    The port is a technological marvel because it runs at all on such limited hardware -- but it's so cut back and runs so slowly that it's not worth playing.  Code was probably never discovered because nobody cared about that version of the game in the first place. 🤣
     
    In the old days most codes were not discovered by players.  Developers would tell them to gaming publications, and people would find out about them through magazines and guides.

    misterBee got a reaction from Angel in Melty Blood: Please play it   
    This is the Melty Blood thread. 
     
    Melty Blood is currently my favorite fighting game.  I will play it with you.  I will teach it to you.  I will give you the game.  My desperation knows no bounds.
     
    Why this game is cool:
    Alpha  3/CVS2-style groove system Rollback netcode* Super fast paced, free-form combo system Characters to fit almost any playstyle Large player base Low system requirements (will run on basically any PC) Beautiful 2D animation (even if it's a little low-res) *only available with the community-created edition.  This is the version everyone else uses.  Nobody uses or likes the Steam version.  Ask me for details on how to get it.
     
     
    Basic Overview
     
    Melty is a fast-paced game that offers players a lot of flexibility.  The 3 different grooves change how you play pretty drastically -- it's like Alpha 3/CVS2 on steroids.  Some grooves are technical and allow you to have precise control over your meter, while others basically handle it for you.  Some grooves allow reverse beat (chaining light normals after heavy ones), and others are Guilty Gear/Blazblue-style (you can only chain light moves into heavier ones).  Automatic shield counters, spot dodges, just defends -- pick the right groove and Melty will let you play the way you want to.
     
    Different versions of a character will play completely different from one another.  Each groove grants characters completely different move sets, abilities, and mechanics. This means that there are essentially 93 characters in the game (31 characters x 3 versions).  There's something for almost everybody.
     
    If you're an execution monster looking to do some sick loops, there are some characters that will really challenge you -- but most characters are not hard to pick up and learn.  A lot of  characters have pretty simple combos that work well even at a high level.
     
    Thanks to the game's low system requirements and community edition's excellent netcode, this game has a healthy scene.  Unlike a lot of other old games, this one still has lots of new and inexperienced players.
     
    If you're looking for games/want to learn just hit me up or post in here.  I'll teach you the basics and help get you started with the game!

    Find high level match vids for any character.  People in Japan still play this game a lot and new matches are being added to the database constantly.  Haven't seen any comparable tool for any other scene/game.  This thing is amazing.

    Angel's avatar is how I feel about EVA to begin with so I don't need a 5 minute recap showing me why it's even worse than I remember.  👼

    STAFF CONTENT MODERATION

    Mods will mostly leave you alone, but content that blatantly goes against the rules will be promptly edited out by site staff.  You can read the site rules here.
     
     
    COMMUNITY MODERATION
     
    Site staff can only do so much.  It's up to you to make this site into the kind of place you want it to be.
     
    If you don't like something that someone has said, you can of course react with a thumbs down/-1:
     


    This is great, but all it really does is tell someone that you didn't like their post.  If you REALLY don't like what someone said and want it gone, you need to use the report function:
     

     
    Reporting on MEGASHOCK is not like it is on other forums.  On this site the report tool is used as a MEGA DOWNVOTE.  By using this tool the community can remove content that does not directly go against site rules, but that people don't want to see.  Site staff can help, but it is up to the community to come together and get rid of posts they think are spam/annoying/trolling/etc.
     
    Posts that receive enough reports from users will be automatically hidden, without needing mod intervention.
     
    To MEGA DOWNVOTE a post using the report function, make sure you select this option:
     

     
    The number of MEGA DOWNVOTES needed to hide a post is continually being tweaked.  I will not tell you what it is.
     
     
    DISCIPLINE AND PUNISHMENT
     
    If you've been bad you will be subject to punishment by site staff.  MEGASHOCK uses a warning system -- every time you are warned by staff your account will gain points.  These points are similar to points you get on your license from a speeding ticket.  As you gain more and more points your account will receive more and more restrictions,  and you may find yourself unable to post for several hours or even banned for weeks.  Points slowly go away over time, so if you are on your best behavior your account will slowly go back to normal after a while.
     
    If you've accrued a ridiculous amount of points, done something truly heinous, or I really don't like you, you will simply be banned from the site.  It's my site and I'll do what I please.  ♥️

    I'm wondering why a DNF fighter is even a thing.  The last time I thought about DNF I was in highschool...almost 15 years ago...
     
    Not gonna complain about having more fighting games though!

    To be fair that game probably does not have high resolution textures, a ton of recorded dialogue in multiple languages, or FMV, all of which are the main things that drive up install size in modern games.
