Much like “Dark Souls-like”, I’m sick to death of scouring crap to craft something. So, I’ll skip LOU 2 till a big sale or such.

Had to delete Bats Asylum because the game seriously glitched out and check point saved right as it happens so I’m fucked. Couldn’t find any old save or revert option on the internet. I’m not restarting it. Too damn bad! Started Bats Arkham Origins instead.

I really liked the first one despite its Naughty Dog-itis, but it was also one of those "candy" games that you just binge on for a few days and then completely forget about afterwards. I honestly couldn't tell you a thing anymore that happens in it, I just remember I really enjoyed it. I dunno. I kinda feel like if I buy this now I'll play it for four hours and then never finish it.

Oh, yeah. That’s another thing about Last of Us 2. I literally just finished watching an episode of Ripper Street on Netflix where a doggo had to be put down. Now I’m bummed out. And I’ve heard things about things in a thing. No thanks.

This is handled such that it is not going to worry you at all.

Ugh, no thanks... I already hate "gamers" enough as it is. And let me guess, the petition was put online before the game even came out, and it's based on a few previews (written by games journalists who are otherwise not to be trusted, of course) and Youtube videos?

They have been since they released the 32X and the Saturn basically at the same time. Along with that idiotically small Game Gear thing they announced that they were going to use arcade cabs in game centres as servers or something, an idea that was ridiculed universally. From what I've read, Sega's golden age staff is long gone, so it's more like the corpse of a once glorious company...

That whole site is the worst collection of whiny alts (left, right, and upside-down). As far as the game’s petition it seems like a post release bitch about a clip from the trailer not being the truth. The people supporting this petition best stay far away from pro-wrestling as I’d imagine their favorite wrestler turning “bad guy” would drive their fragile minds to suicide.

The Saturn was dope / an anomaly perhaps, but a dope one.

Yeah I guess, although it heavily depended on what genres you were into? I've never owned one. It could have had a lot more games/ been a lot more popular with developers though if its complex architecture had been more accessible or if Sega had made more of an effort to make it easier for developers to understand the Saturn's architecture.

One of these days I will have to get one; which games did you have/ can you recommend?

Wasn’t the Saturn just like a weaker Playstation type console that mostly did arcade ports and Prius-Dragoon? Sure, it was better than the Jaguar or 3DO, but isn’t “dope” a bit of an exaggeration here.

I pondered getting a Neo Geo and Turbografix 16 mini but honestly I’d just rather emulate any of that stuff on the PC vs spending the money and having more junk around hogging up HDMI ports.

The year is about half over already and I don’t believe I’ve played a bad game, yet. This is totally unlike me so after Bats is done I might try that Rage 2.

(So the board edits P A N Z E R into Prius... okay)

The argument I usually hear is it was stronger, but also much harder to program for. Its superior 2D capabilities made it well suited to the many pixel graphics arcade games of the late nineties; if you were a fan of arcade games, I guess there was no better console to own at the time. (Apart from the Neo Geo, depending on whether you preferred to down shooters or fighting games, and the NG was of course retardedly expensive. I owned a Neo Geo CD in the nineties; it was worth it just for Samurai Shodown 2 and Pulstar.)

I have foggy long dormant memories of borrowing my brothers for a few months and playing RE: Code Veronica on it - I feel graphically it was a bit sexier than PS2 at the time and the arcade ports like Crazy Taxi were a shitload of fun. It had that whacky little joystick loaded memory card with a small screen on it and a boot disc to allow the playing of pirated games.

In summation my admittedly rose coloured glasses memory of the console had me resting on an experience I would comfortably apply a label of ‘dope’ against.

No way Saturn had better graphics than the PS2. Are you confusing it with the Dreamcast?

Ha! It’s all good, brother. It’s not like you’re saying “Chun Li shouldn’t be in video games because women and asians don’t like Trump!”. You a are not even close to a Meat or a Grease. Not even a greasy meat.
