  1. Completed: 20XX Platform: PC Controls well, good gameplay, variety of powerups, with two DLC characters four different characters to use with DLC ones getting a lot of new weapons. Stages get harder and final boss is much stronger depending on the stage order. Challenge modes and options to make the game more difficult. Can start with bonuses or turn them off. Could use more enemy variety. Music and level design never meet the quality of X titles, with the stages being pretty dull.
  2. Well, thankfully, essentially no one of any importance in the industry with knowledge of the industry or development that focuses on or has a history of workers rights, community management, actually working on games, or dealing with the culture that knows the problems that a major company trying to turn firing of employees into a positive PR spin agrees with you. Even just having a passable understanding of the way language and society works and seeing the way the other person was talking clearly shows what an extremely offensive and disingenuous thing it is to say that she was playing the gender card or the victim, even more so when the guy clearly would have been doing the same by any definition if that was true and was certainly not being respectful or reasonable. I don't know what you would mean by what is the quote about, a very large number of community managers/developers/writers from Remedy/Arkane/Bioware/Arena/Ubisoft/Harebrained Schemes/Night in the Woods/Frog Fractions/etc, former developers, multiple industry organizations, pretty much every journalists from (Eurogamer/Polygon/PCgamesn/PCgamer/Kotaku/USgamer/Paste/Waypoint/Verge/etc, people from the tabletop community like the current D&D creative director and creator, educators that are training people to work in the industry and put them in contact with future jobs, most any Youtubers that makes more intellectual focused content outside of just ranting about current news they got from gaming sites, voice actors like Ashly Burch, developer associations, etc all seem to have made it very clear in the above section what that quote means and how things influence the wider industry. I mean, there is literally an article included from one of the main global union advocate organizations writing about the situation and how their membership increased partly due to it and literally a company response to the multiple people sending them messages to try to get women that work with them fired and an Arkane developer with multiple people sending messages to her employer to try to get her fired, I don't really see how the quote you are asking about could be more clear from all the articles and responses that I posted to go along with it.
  3. Completed: Into the Breach Platform: PC Good variety of units, parts, and pilots that give you a lot of strategies to make use of. I was able to win my first try on normal and it did end up tending to feel either too easy at times or just kind of cheap when I started doing poorly typically just from how enemies happened to spawn or random battlefield effects. Played through the game a few more times trying out some of the other unlockable squads, still have two more to unlock and another four or five pilots to find. Like FTL it has a nice art style and is good for quick games.

  8. Welcome to the AJSA
  9. Completed: 1979 Revolution: Black Friday Platform: PC Great to see a game cover a part of history most people don't know about while also taking some time to show aspects of life, culture, and factions present in Iran during the revolution. Looking at objects or taking pictures gives you information about society or the time period. The actual gameplay is poor though with nothing you do really mattering, obviously not historically, but also not really even effecting your personal story much, which ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger. Story is framed a year or two after the revolution during an interrogation from Iran's new government that you have been working against after your actions against the previous. Low budget makes some QTE look awkward or funny. I feel like it would have been better as either a less main character personal story that had you playing as a journalist but learning more about the things that went on, more of the best parts of the game which is interacting with culture and people, and importantly what happened after the revolution if the story is going to be framed the way it is. While also letting the stories come from the people that you meet. Going the path they went the game likely could have used a bigger budget with you never spending that much time with your family or figures in the revolution, you being more peaceful or violent really doesn't matter, what seems like a big deal with someone possibly betraying another character and you trying to figure out who doesn't really lead to anything, and your actions towards two characters just changes who looks like they are about to kill you before the game cuts to black at the end. Completed: Hustle Cat Platform: PC Allows you to date women or men and gives you multiple gender options to choose from. Characters are likable and the writing while nothing amazing or thematically interesting fits. I did really like Mason. Some good music. Not the strongest art but looks decent and no character looks or dresses completely ridiculously like in a lot of visual novels. Short and kind of an odd and quickly resolved subplot that would seem much more important and have more of an effect on each route. Not enough cats. Completed: Sakura Beach 2 Platform: PC It's bad
  10. I don't really get good feelings from Bethesda developed open world games in general.

  13. Welcome to the AJSA
  14. I have no idea why you would try to copy such an uninteresting piece about a game that has had so many quality critiques written about it but you will be immediately removed from the community if you ever do this again. I don't know if trying to pass this off as yours was intentional but I will assume it was since you posted it to community content and changed and added nothing to it.
  15. I mean, the video is of a guy who spends most of the time complaining about having to go outside and who also looks and sounds like that while talking about how he thinks he is too good for Wal-Mart and has to wash off the smell from it. I mean I worked at Wal-Mart for three years and I agree with his sentiment, but that time has also taught me that that guy IS Wal-Mart.
