The Return of.. Terribly Unpopular Opinions.


Recommended Posts

-Street Fighter 2 is the only truly great SF game with the others being largely average to above average fighters (I say this as someone for whom 3s is my favorite) 

 

-Smash Ultimate is better, more intuitive, and more fun than a lot of actual fighting games when you play it like a fighter (i.e. 1v1 stamina mode) 

 

-NRS has been the best fighting game dev since MKX came out in terms of making their games easy to learn and giving the competitive community tool to be able to play the game with each other.

This was why I stopped playing monster Hunter world despite playing like a fiend for 2 weeks. The game is really easy. When I got to the elder gods and beat them on my first try with almost no trouble i uninstalled. 

Yeah, you didn't even play the real game yet dude lmao 

 

The first few elder Dragons you fight are kind of whatever. The real game starts on Master/G rank.

I'm with you, but maybe that's the point?  

I've been suggesting this for years. At a certain point I think you have to consider that the animation style is intentional. It resembles the classic games in a very faithful manner, warts and all. 

 

Unpopular opinion probably but: I actually like most of the animations in MK because they harken back to the old games, and in turn, they feel like the old games. 

 

It seems strange to me to attribute the animation style purely to incompetence when you can look at the character intros, cutscenes and fatalities to see they clearly understand how to make more traditional/realistic looking animations. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Exactly. 

 

You want to talk about animation incompetence. Why does M. Bison wipe his head with no hat!

 

Something I thought about today. Chick-Fil-A is exceptionally mediocre.

Lol miss me with that “nah you gotta play 20/30/40 etc hours to get to the real game” shit. Im already at a point where I’m constantly killing the same shit over and over again to farm mats. I’m not gonna keep doing that on the off chance the game might eventually get challenging. Why the fuck are they already recycling content if the “real” game is farther in?

 I work in a mall right next to a chick-Fil-A and it’s insane how packed it is every fucking day. The food is good but mfs be there like it’s going out of style.
 

Like at absolute best it’s slightly above average fast food...but it’s still fast food.

I don't know if I said this before, but I think Hideo Kojima is overrated. I think he, like many other developers of his era, benefited from the restrictions of hardware. The more powerful hardware got, the more his "games" started to feel less and less like games. He clearly wants to makes films, so he just do it already. Just, for his sake, I hope it comes out better than Hironobu Sakaguchi's efforts.

Why are you grinding low rank monsters to farm low rank materials? Especially if they're already "way too easy" in the first place. You should be blasting through that stuff to get to the end game, where most of the challenging content actually resides. 

 

If you're still doing main story quests 30/40 hours in, that's on you lol. You can get to Master Rank stuff in like 8 hours or less.

I’m not you don’t even fight the elder gods until several levels into high rank. I can’t be assed to check how many stars it is, but to keep upgrading my Gunlances I had to grind monsters for gems (Wyvern gem, anjanath gem, etc) and other shit that apparently has like 1% drop rates. 
 

Aint nobody got time for that.

Gems ain't hard to get. Doing bounties with gold and silver rewards can land you some gems. Capturing monsters instead of killing them will get you more drops.

- Call of Duty/Assassin's Creed games are fun and ppl who bash them have a stick up their ass.

no comment on AC as I never played them...BUUUUUUT

 

CoD is my fast food choice of game. I know what I am getting into buying it each year and I could care less what others say about the series. I have fun playing it and it's my go to game when I just want to play something without overthinking things. I think they should port CoD Mobile to Switch and I would be sold on that. 

 

I do play Diablo 3 and picked it up again. While it lacks more end game content, I have enjoyed it for what it's worth. My GF plays on Switch and PC and enjoyed it. We're both planning on playing D4 when it comes out.

I know how to farm as efficiently as possible. I bee-lined Legiana set bonus and I have captured everything from like the 2nd mission onwards...trap tools were literally the first thing I bought. It doesn’t change the fact that I’m still being forced to run missions multiple times against creatures I’ve already fought that shit is dry and repetitive. Then I get my shit, finally fight a new creature just to not even be challenged. 

Monster Hunter is mid ass game but niggas won’t let you criticize any aspect of it.

You can criticize it all you want, but don't be surprised you're getting pushback when you're faulting the game for being  "too easy" because you're grinding early game monsters like a goober. 😂

 

It's like playing nothing but Arcade mode in a fighting game, then never coming back because "man this game is too easy".
