    This isn't the news of an oncoming apocalypse or anything, calm down. Not to mention it's written in the stars to be shit.

    I think that was a fair review. Glad he mentioned the button mapping aso that genuinely does feel strange to people who are used to PS4 and Xbox style controls and that's something no other review I've seen has brought up.

    So it's finally here........ and probably copyright claimed by the archaic assholes of Nintendo Japan by now (I've already downloaded the video just in case).  The Legend of Zelda:  Breath of the Wild angry review.

    Okay so I've had this one particular game on my mind for a while now. I remember it as one of the first games I ever played, but I've never seen or heard about it since, and I have no idea what it's called. Let me try describing it to see if any of you can recognize it.
    It's an old 90s PC game with 3rd person platforming. You play as this weird orange/red midget man on a big beach with big wooden platforms and railways all around. I remember there are kids throughout this beach making sandcastles that you could destroy, but if you did these hot police babes would chase and attack you. I also remember at some point later in the game, a large black mechanical pyramid shows up hovering at the shore and you have to do some stuff under it or something.
    I also remember this very distinct pain sound when you took damage. A manly voice high-pitching a clear and short "Owh!"
    Here's a quick sketch based on my memories:

    That's all I got, good luck.

    The event updates on Xbox started as a way to communicate necessary information quickly to members outside the forums as people might not be logged in to see this info. On the PS4, there was the rooms set up buy WITHASTICK that functioned to the same end, just in a slightly different way, so the updates as we know them on XB1 aren't really necessary. Discord is has also proven to be a useful tool for this well on all platforms. Of course that's just my perspective, it's up to the PS4 guys if the want to employ such an idea, but it wasn't nessessary then and it seems unessessary now.

    Welcome back to the AJSA.
     
    Yes, much has changed, but don't worry because we are very much still here with things to do on all platforms. The new Discord server that Crab described (WAY better imo) and a new website layout, but still the AJSA. If you have any questions about the community then please feel free to ask.

    The failure rate of Nintendo Switch's that has been reported so far is around 0.5% which actually sounds quite good but that's not the end of the story.  According to this unofficial poll from strawpoll the amount of users reporting major issues more than 10 times that much.
     

    https://strawpoll.com/9adszeb
     
    Obviously a portion of these are going to be trolls and liars and a higher proportion of those people with failed systems are going to report than those that don't but It seems very likely that the launch hardware failure rate for the Switch is going to be significantly more than the PS4 for example which was around 0.4%.......  and that's going to be a problem.
     
    It's not just failures either, Blunty among many others screen got scratched while sitting in the dock and it can be very difficult to to get the Joy-Con wrist strap attachments off if you put them on the wrong way and THOSE are design flaws.  So make sure you have a screen protector and if you do put the wrist strap attachments on the wrong way I did find this helpful video from M Fasa showing how to get them off.

    The fact that they are even planning Alpha 3.0 before the new patch is even out tells you everything that's wrong. They will never release this game because scamming people by accepting these so called "pledges" through the "alpha" and thus not having to adhire to purchasing rights is making them a fortune. They are out of excuses, they have had enough time and definitely made enough money to finish this game. That's why the alpha will never end because idiots keep pledging to the game, a gravy train that would end if the actually released it. MMO's go through test phases while they are being developed, and they get patches and updates as time goes on, but they do not just claim to be in Alpha for all eternity,  that is not how this works, or at least not how it's supposed to work.
     
    When they first had the kickstarter, pledges were promised Squadron 42 as the single player portion of Star Citizen. That was the case until last February when they announced that only people who pledged a certain amount before February 14nth  (Yeah, Valentine's day, very funny by the way). It's only after that they stated calling the Star Citizen MMO and the Squadron 42 single player two separate games and now people have to buy the room games separately. Robert Space Industries claimed they did this to offer more to early backers, bur early backers were already entitled to Squadron 42 anyway, so they actually gave them nothing extra at all. The obvious truth is they held Squadron 42 hostage to try and get more pledges before February 14nth for a game, and you said so yourself, they will never bring out of alpha. Scum.
     
    To summarize, Star Citizen is a mountain of bullshit. I'm a big fan of Wing Commander, and I actually want this game to come out, but no way I'm supporting what has become one of the most shady, disgustingly greedy projects in gaming history.

    If the same percentage of people who bought a switch and then postep a clip of it working perfectly fine to the same ratio of people made this compilation of faulty units (BTW, that's what warranties are for), what video do you think would be longer? Exactly.
     
    No new piece of tech has a launch without SOME malfunctioning units getting past quality control, it happens. Besides, where's the proof these people in the video aren't like that Moron who melted his PS4 Pro then posted pic's all over the Internet claiming it melted itself?
     
    I'm not defending Nintendo, I'm just using my common sence. Besides, there's I'm actually more concerned about what you've tried to do here Rain, especially considering you're a forum mod. Claiming this video is Joe's, when it isn't, and clearly taking an incredibly bias fanboy perspective on this. White all due respect, what kind of "Black Knight" bullshit are you trying to pull here? We (the AJSA members) are not that stupid man.

    None of the things you list Joe saying are hypocritical.
    When it comes to let's plays or just showing footage that can hold some merit but when it comes to reviewing the companies products or talking about their role in the industry or of their tech, which is more of what he wants to do and has had claimed in the past, you should not be giving a company money for that privilege. Joe not being popular without games is both almost certainly true, on a global scale and possibly in the modern age the same could be said about Nintendo without people sharing and writing about their products, neither of which has any actually relevance to anything.
    You seem to be misunderstanding multiple things here. It is Joe's content, even if you were someone who believes that no one should be able to use footage of games in reviews, much of the videos for game and tech reviews are still going to be of the Youtuber themselves, of their words, of their inserted things, of their skits, things not directly owned by either the Youtuber or Nintendo, etc, so with that line of thought then both the Youtuber and Nintendo would be stealing each others content. The other half of what you said about Nintendo protecting their employees doesn't make any sense. I'm not really sure about every Nintendo employees schedule spread occross different games, job areas, and countries are but don't see why that matters. Nintendo is not giving money to Youtubers at all (unless they had some kind of paid promotion), even when Youtubers become part of their program Nintendo is still not giving them their own money, they are just taking less of it from someone who is not their employee. Protecting their employees has no relevance to this at all and since Nintendo does have an American division they are also an American company (and European) so where someone is from isn't really relevant when it's their own region that tends to claim and manage content in that area.
    Nothing about this is hypocritical. He is correct in that it is Nintendo throwing away free coverage, this is something proven by sales data and multiple AAA and indie developers. You are correct in a line of thinking that most popular Youtubers tend to have an inflated sense of self importance but, again, that's not really relevant to anything in regards to being a hypocrite or the legal situation.
    That would imply that Nintendo actually cares about Joe and watches his content, which is unlikely unless he was to start getting reported by news sources (though I guess he kind of did in 2014 or 2015 I think). I don't know what steps you would be referring to as claiming his income is really the only thing they can do. They can't do something like sue him first for flipping off a corporation in a Youtube video.....at least not yet.
    You really don't, legality of a lot of this is vague, not even agreed upon by many content creators, and would be up to courts to decide, who depending on who was looking over the case would likely come up with different answers, probably even more varied answers in different countries. It would make sense to stop having videos with images of their content, unless you actually were going to try to take it to court, but even then you certainly don't have to respect them, and I really don't mind someone complaining about a large wealthy corporation that has frequently damaged the industry or treated their employees poorly in the past and present.
    That's a rare thing to get from most gaming Youtubers in general, even more so when videos are typically done more as reactions to things and when someone has Angry in their name. You would be better of looking for content by Youtubers who tend to come into discussions in a calm, intellectual, legal and logic focused way, and with a more impersonal perspective (Extra Credits, Folding Ideas, hbomberguy, InnuendoStudios, Errant Signal, Cool Ghosts, Lindsay Ellis, Kyle Kallgren, etc), though I've never seen any of them do more than post a few tweets about Nintendo or Youtube policies, if they have ever said anything in the first place.

    I personally couldn't care less. I see no evidence that Activision have thrown out the idea of turning a great concept for a video game into a hub to pile on DLC and having to buy said DLC to get something even remotely close to what was promised. Fuck Destiny 2, and for gaming's sake, I hope it fails.

    I'm with crab on this one. I personally can't see the point on buying a brand new AAA PC game to play it on a tiny screen at a resolution so low that it looks like gentiles in a Japanese porno.

    In all honesty if it looks like this then I don't even qualify it as running!  I know graphics aren't the be it all and end it all of everything but you've got to have some minimum standard.  I mean for fucks sake Medal of Honor on the original PlayStation looks better than this!

  22. Shagger liked a post in a topic by WITHASTICK in Kingdom Hearts III   
    As a Kingdom Hearts fan talking to someone who has interest in trying Kingdom Hearts out, do not get Kingdom Hearts 2.8 as your first experience with Kingdom Hearts series. You will have completely no idea what is going on, why current things are happening, and what the reasons are. Wait till Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 collection comes out in March, it includes 4 games and 2 games turned into movies. And they have them setup on the main menu in the order you need to play them in, with Kingdom Hearts being the first and ReCoded being the last:

    At that point if you feel like you are into the series and want to know what happens afterward than pick up 2.8. Which include 2 games that take place right before Kingdom Hearts 3, and a movie detailing the events on how all this started. And warning, no matter how many times they answer a question, there are more questions left.
  23. Shagger liked a post in a topic by BleedingChaos23 in Kingdom Hearts III   
    You can't play 2.8 alone and expect to understand the entire plot. What you can do though, is wait for the KH1.5 & 2.5 Collection on PS4 to release March 31st (It's £35 on Amazon) and play those before 2.8, so you can play them canonically.
  24. Shagger liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Fanboy Melts a PS4 pro then post picks online... and the worst part?   
    If you know me well enough on these forums, I said multiple times that fanboys are the worst kind of people. They will fanatically support you all the way through, but fuck you, if you make a change and it doesn't fit them...then they will whine and cry about it till their death. I don't find this shit surprising at all and it's just one sad individual.
     
    I don't blame people who are baited by this and think it's real, specially if you don't know anything about how burned plastic looks like and all. If you hadn't explained it all, I would probably think something inside it like really blew up or just burned and it melted the plastic over a while. However, people jumping on the hate train and now using this trying to blame Sony or being legit happy that this happened, because they really think the PS burned or something, are pretty dumb. Not worth paying attention to.
     
    As you said, we are gamers. Nobody owes us anything special or a miracle device. If you don't like it, then you simply don't buy it and period. But yeah, internet gives too much freedom and some people think that they can manipulate entire corporations. Well good luck with that!
    Just because Sony or any other company does some shit to dissapoint their fans, it doesn't mean you should go full retard and do something like this, or whathever the reason is that he did this.
     
    edit: Looking at the picture more clearly, it's kind of obvious it was actually fake. Funny how the plastic actually is going inwards, as if he took something really hot and just thrust it into the side of the PS and pushed it hard inside. Damn, people are fuckin stupid!
