    I would have played it more if there was a way to get past the intro. Having to deal with the Bunny's "conversations" was the most obnoxious thing. I don't him showing up to assist a purchase or something but the daily banter was too long for the free reward.

    They need to do two things:

    1) If they can detect these users who are botting, don't let them use gyms. After all, nobody's experience is ruined by other people botting and spoofing until they take down a gym.

    2) I say this with every PokeGo post: Ingress has a web site view of Google Earth with all the game's portal points on it. Make a similar site with the 'mon spawns on it so that people will feel incentivized to actually go somewhere.

    It's this insistence on spontaneous serendipity that makes the game a deal-breaker to so many people. If I could go somewhere and see that, say, they're giving out Snorlax at the university, I'd get on the bus to the university and have fun. I do not have the willpower or the smartphone battery to just at all hours have the application open while I'm doing other things.

    I'm a cruel monster for this, but I had to smile, then chuckle, then laugh out loud.

    I'm not an RE fan, but I know the franchise isn't exactly known for it's good voice acting. I never played RE2, but I do remember Claire was also in Code Veronica, whose cast as a whole was some of the worst VA work I'd ever heard. I'm not singling out Allyson Court here at all, it was part of the great PS2/Dreamcast Voice Acting Trainwreck era.

    So, as someone who associates Claire Redfield with CV, I kind of want to make some mean snarky statement about the replacement actually being good? Not because I hate unions or anything, but because I immediately thought of C:V and of vocal atrocities that rival Shenmue.

    Right. I'll show myself the door.Edited 2 times. Last edited 6 days ago by Unknown

    There's a lot of confusion because of how big and expansive this series is, so for anyone who is confused like me, here's a quickie breakdown that tries to use as few backslashes and silly names as possible:

    This is the later trilogy of games that had a protag named Haseo (kid with the bare midriff and the belly tattoo), not the original trilogy of games that starred a character named Kite (green hair and a red puffy outfit). If you're interested in it anyway, you should probably check out the anime ".hack Roots" because Haseo's story starts out there as a newly introduced character into the world, and then grow into these games.

    It's nice, but I'll never play it again so long as they continue to label Poke Vision and other tools that map spawns as "cheating". I live in a sprawling suburb-metro that's scheduled to hit 113 today and 115 tomorrow. I'd hop on a bus and visit a part of town I've never been to go pick up a Scizor and Chansey but no way am I randomly wandering to pick one up.Edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    The greater point is, Sony does this already with FFXIV and Street Fighter V.

    "Cinephile" actually does make me think of someone who has spent a lot of money on movies. Usually they have some favorite posters framed or something, and I learned recently that those aren't cheap.

    As for people hating the term 'gamer', it's literally in the name of this site so to some degree or another, you bit on it... Yes, we've been plagued for years by marketing people who 'don't get it it' and make horrible merchandise like this, but I'd argue that there's less of that than ever in many ways as we've moved on from the 1996-2004 era it's become sort of endearing to see things like the E3 spatula where obviously someone who works in marketing is trying to speak to a demographic they don't quite understand. Old-fashioned marketing is almost as much a part of retro gaming as the games are.

    There are negative social connotations with the word sometimes, but every word that's had negative social connotations were "taken back" in some way or another.

    The problem to me wasn't that she didn't sound enough like Burch, the problem for me was that in the dialogue clips they showed us the actress they got to voice the formerly voiceless Rachel Amber sounds almost exactly the same.

    It was like listening to someone having a conversation with themselves, and it wasn't Mel Blanc.

    This is why I'm okay with Kingdom Hearts III taking forever, because it uses almost all of Saturday Morning's voice acting stable plus a few legitimate celebrities. Although in that case, Disney probably maintains a list of people who can do identical voices in case of such events. (And in case actors die, like how Jim Cummings pick up Sterling Holloway's roles as Pooh and Kaa without dropping a beat.)
    Burch is involved as a writing consultant, since she's an Emmy-award winning writer and there's not a labor dispute for writers.Edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What Is Your Favorite Game of E3 2017?

  • Avatar for UnskippableCutscene UnskippableCutscene 15 days ago

    @Jericho-GM You have a point. Nintendo games, especially anything mascot based, has had that same sort of endlessly cheery, doo-wop soundtrack, jigsaw font brightly colored feel that goes back to SNES.

    There is creative stuff, though, in the indie space. Ubisoft advertised (I don't want to say "showed") a partnered VR game that I'm not even sure what it is supposed to be. And that one Blade Runner style game from the Xbox conference looked great. And even after four years(?!) of E3, Cuphead still hasn't been imitated before it can hit market.Edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown
