I never got why frame rate and other graphical things are used to advertise games. Who looks at a game's store description and thinks "ooh goody, 60FPS and ray tracing!" and not y'know... "ooh goody, high difficulty and tight controls!" or something actually substantial like that?

Eh, it's weird. While the first 2 things are definitely visual, I guess some games absolutely would prefer 60 FPS over 30, like twitch shooters. While I can tolerate 30 just fine, since that's what most games I've played my whole life have run at, I can't deny that some games are better in 60 since they feel more responsive(Like Crash 4 for a recent example).

Raytracing...? Eh, it's pretty, but don't need it.
One thing I like about fighting games is combos. My technical skill sucks but I do execute several of them successfully. For that reason, I prefer doing beginner and intermediate combos.

My opinion of the night--Tekken series rates #1 for having the coolest-looking combos! Smash comes in close second.
As a Brit I am not at all offended by lots of movie villains having British accents - what offends me is the specific accents they choose. The stereotypical "posh British villain" accent is nowhere near as threatening and confrontational as a cockney accent.

as an american I have no clue the difference between British accents, and now I'm gonna go down that rabbit hole of trying to see just how many there are.....

I think the "posh" accent they go for is too make villains sound more cunning as opposed to brutish like a cockney accent would.
In The Big Bang Theory, Leanord is the protagonist and Sheldon is the deuteragonist/comic relief.

I used to think Leonard was underrated but Sheldon is honestly a whole monster of it's own. It'd still be erronous to say Sheldon alone carries the show, with good characters like Raj and Wallowitz.

It's like that in a lot of sitcoms, honestly.

Leonard is the most "normal" character out of the 4, but it's also funny how much he can tolerate Sheldon.
Remember when people were unironically comparing SpongeBob Rehydrated to Last of Us Part 2? what a cursed time period.
I wrote this as a message earlier but I removed it as it got pretty personal. Basically, my grandma and mom are in the hospital with COVID. My dad also has it and is “quarantining” from home (he’s been going out on motorcycle rides every so often). My grandma isn’t doing so well but there hasn’t been any changes since the beginning of this week so that’s good news I suppose. My mom has improved slightly but still has a high fever and trouble breathing. My sister and her husband got checked as they had thanksgiving with my parents but they tested negative. One of my mom’s bible study friends that came over over Friday also now has it but the twelve other women either tested negative or haven’t taken the test. I wish I could help or do something but I can’t do much from Japan. Most of my family also thinks this virus is a hoax and still maintain this line even though they contracted it. They often call it the Wuflu, Kung-flu, and the China Virus and they fully believe this was a NWO/Deep State scheme to remove Trump. Regardless, I still love them and I hope we can get through it.
I know this is really annoying and nitpicky, but it always kinda bugs me when people refer to Coronavirus as a plague. It’s not.

Edit: All I’m saying here is that plagues are caused by bacteria, not a virus. I’m not trying to downplay the severity of the Coronavirus at all
Crono is a character I definitely would want in Smash more if he was less bland and design wasn’t so bad

on one hand, chrono trigger is one of my favorite games of all time and is kind of an all time classic in the jrpg genre

on the other hand, there's been so much katana sword wielding anime dudes in smash that it just kinda makes it seem redundant to put chrono in smash

actually I don't recall a single katana wielder at all, except one of the alt forms of Hero.

Everyone else uses broadsword/bastardsword/longswords, etc., Pretty much every sword wielder so far has had their weapons more designed after european martial arts weapons.

There's not a single true character yet I can think of, that has a japanese style sword, with a moveset that reflects that type of weapon. So in a bit of irony, while he'd still be an anime swordsman, he'd be the only katana one, and that would have him stand out from the others.
I love how Klinklang randomly just has like 3 signature moves (Shift Gear, which later became a move learnable by Toxtricity and Magearna, Gear Up, which it shared with Magearna in Gen 7, and Gear Grind, which it still has.)
My father just came to me sending me threads and menaces over my desire of dropping out of college for a year.

"If you dare do so I'm gonna **** on your existence"
"When your uncle finds out he's gonna slap you really bad and you will regret It"
"You are gonna make your mother die if you keep giving us a bad image"

And that, my dear profile post readers, is why I developed a fear to take risky choices throught the years.
I'm so ready to not watch the Game Awards, catch up with the news the day after and see all the drama from both the games which won and the reveals themselves.
"Strong Pkemon. Weak Pokemon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites."

I hate that quote so darn much.

Strength is not an illusion. Anyone with eyes and a brain can see how laughably unbalanced Pokemon is as a game. That's not selfishness. That's just a fact.

You can try to win with your favorites, but that's only going to work ingame, where the game is designed to be so easy and thoughtless, a 6 year old can beat it by just pressing the A button enough times. Of course anyone can win with their favorites there.

Funny how Karen only says that after losing. Beforehand, she says "Dark Pokemon are so strong!" What was that again about a "selfish perception"?

Also there's this one NPC in the Battle Chateau of ORAS that says the exact opposite.

You know, the Battle Chateau. The area in postgame exclusive to Trainers STRONGER than the Elite Four. I'd say someone clearly above the Elite Four has a better idea of what they're talking about.

Pokelego999 Pokelego999 Even then, you'd be better off trying that kind of stuff in almost any other monster collector that has far fewer balancing issues than Pokemon has.

Pokemon like Unown are proof not all Pokemon are created equal.

Then you get Pokemon like Ditto who was considered horrible novelty until it got Imposter.
Even Regigigas, crushed by Slow Start, has a tiiiny niche in PU XY for high bulk + Knock off use. Potentially useful in SS doubles with rest + protect stuff.
I think stuff like Delibird has been used in doubles for VGC at some point, though I don't remember the video.

Butterfree, a base 300 or so Pokemon, has a good niche due to compund eyes sleep+gmax form.

Shedinja has minor niches every generation.

Just a couple examples.
I could only imagine what Wii versions of the Danganronpa games would be like. It would be fun going through the class trials with a Wii Zapper, kind of as if it were one of those rail shooters or "light gun" games at the local arcades.
So the Nintendo Switch has a pretty big problem: sometimes users under the age of 18 can’t look at any M rated games on the e-shop, even if there isn’t any parental controls at all. I’ve been trying to download Doom, but it’s not working for me

PS5 came out the other day. Switch has been out for 3 3/4 years now, so it has no excuse.

The lack of a web browser is kind of annoying, but it’s not as bad as a glitch which has always been there and prevents people from digitally buying games they actually want to play and have money for.

It is possible to buy with another account but if you want to use your own My Nintendo points (like I did)... you’re out of luck.

I don't like it either, but I kind of understand why they'd do it (the M-rated game thing). Some of the screenshots on the store pages can be rather risque or gory in nature, and a good portion of Switch users are younger than 13, let alone 10. Also, it's until you hit 17 that you can't see them; not 18. I know this because I was one of those users locked out until my B-day last year.
I miss the old days when the Male Protags in Pokemon didn't look super boring.


And even then there are literally zero interesting customization choices.

I didn't have many problems with the Galar protagonist after customization, but the one thing that drove me absolutely insane was that big ass brick for a backpack with no other choices. No small bag, no normal sized bag, only an incredibly oversized brick that a kid like Victor shouldn't be able to carry without collapsing.

I agree. It's so uninteresting that I decided to just use the base male protag outfit, at least then I can be the guy in the official art. Partly for the meme of it too.
