  1. A Kung fu film that happens to be set in the Marvel Universe. Really enjoyed it, not at all what I expected.
  2. An actual game company will make a game soon enough where the players own their loot. It will be mainstream and demanded by the next generation PS6 etc.
  3. I’ll tell you what though. As much as I love being part of their lives and knowing about what they do, but when my oldest starts talking about Minecraft, the life force drains away from me. I had to have a proper talk with him about what he can see in his mind and what someone else understands and gets from his tales. And I know I used to do exactly the same in my 20s about WoW.
  4. Honestly, gaming is SO GOOD for kids rn. I am so happy for them. Who remembers old Marvel live action films? Dogshit. These days, Disney+ at the touch of a button and every new big budget Marvel movie. It’s incredible and only getting better.
  5. Yes, thank you matt0 I have filled my fucking card BINGO! If I told you in grotty 1980s Shagwell or wherever the fuck you want, that you could get money for sweets as a kid for levelling up characters in an RPG you’d probably not believe it. But thanks for the perfect perfect Rllmuk doombrain doommongering post about “capitalist hellscape”. All we need need now is for Stu to swoop in crying because someone mentioned his (not his but any, but he thought it was about his) gas guzzling SUV and we’ve hit peak Rllmuk wailing. Just 16-20 middle aged guys in a large room, arms spread out, mouths open and a constant disapproving earsplitting drone that gets louder and more high pitched every time buzzwords are flashed onto a screen by the mysterious puppet master.
  6. My daughter has bought a ton of stuff on Toca world and absolutely gets value from it. All virtual item systems are not the same (why does this even need to be said?) The idea that somehow getting a Tom & Jerry happy meal toy or a shitty cheap Transformer spin off gacha today for a fiver from the toy shop that will be dashed in the bin after sitting in a toy box for 5 years has more inherent value than virtual items is ludicrous. “Oh it’s a moral issue” LOL. Yes it’s morally wrong that a kid pays for a virtual cape for his virtual avatar using virtual bucks he bought with real money give me a fucking break here, is this 2021 or 2002? Just wait until free to play becomes play to earn and your grandkids are routinely earning their pocket money from games. Even more stick shaking I imagine.
  7. My contribution - on topic - is that yeah the way my first kid played video games pissed me off. The games he played, the way he played, so frustrating I couldn’t watch sometimes, because I don’t want to be sitting there biting my lip and him feeling like he’s a bad player (he was tho). My dreams of us playing 2 player stuff (that I wanted/chose obv) together went up in smoke. But you know, it makes the times we do play together all the more special. And now he is awesome at games, really pleasing to me as I’m also a ‘high skill’ player at certain games (jesus that sounds wanky), but just different games from me. And yes I’ve played through BoTW with both my boys. But aside from steering them somewhat towards the stuff that’s probably a better example of what they wanted to play where appropriate, I wouldn’t dream of policing their gaming in any Roblox breaks my hart like if u cry evrytime way. We play retro stuff too just not regularly or like, they aren’t on some gaming apprentice program where I dictate the titles they play. But yeah Mega Bomberman is a good one, and SNES SF2 Turbo but they play for long enough and start arguing about unfair tactics and who’s go it is and I can’t be dealing with that. Minecraft is the main platform for kids these days it seems. And really things have never been better in terms of availability of quality and quantity of games. Xbox Game pass
  8. The old semi offended “I can’t believe you are so worked up about this, over the top.” “you’re ruining our interesting discussion” Lol you literally said it “breaks your heart” to see kids playing iPad games. That sound in the distance, it’s a squadron of roflcopters. “Breaks my heart!”
  9. Get fucked mate I don’t give a slice of shit whether I’m validated by your fucking light shining wisdom opinion. This is about kids and games - two subjects, one of which you know about and one, you fucking don’t know the first fucking thing about (presumption on my part to be fair). Why not try reading and absorbing opinions or something, learning, that’s it. Learning from other people that might know. Instead of the worthy crusade against non Nintendo stuff. Jesus can’t wait for the next chapter of this shit, it’s coming, and I predict it will be “why do you love shit like Roblox so much?” Tiresome as fuck. Are you all just here for a Friday argument or do you genuinely think you are right on some strange plane of existence?
  10. “Google it” How many game playing kids do you have Alex3D? How many hours have you put into the Roblox platform. Do you think Roblox is one game? Do you think Minecraft is the same game as it was at launch something like 13 years ago? ”Google it” *insert appropriate rude words here, you choose.*
  11. What the fuck has that got to do with the subject matter. And with all due respect (IE LITTLE), if you don’t have kids, your opinion on what your kids should play is less than invalid, it’s like some black hole effect shit that sucks energy and light away from the world. I see the Miyamoto/Roblox comparison has already been dug up. Jesus Christ, what a depressing, shitty string of posts.
  12. Twatty snobby attitude towards games and what people are allowed to enjoy or could be considered ‘valid’. Ain’t gat time fo dat shiiiiiiit! Angry gamer dude snobs are the worst, total blight on the industry. Misguided notion that there won’t be quality games unless for their insipid crusade.
  13. Yeah Tetris company’s 35th anniversary logo refresh or something. Why? Who knows.
  14. That’s not really old fashioned though. In the 80s super top trumps, Spidey was 40, Hulk 90 and Thor 95.
  15. Oh man everything is reset. Smurf city.
  16. And use their junk lines to your advantage - if you can take them and it’s clean and you can quickly get a big zone attack from it then it’s like a bonus attack.
  17. You mean on zone battle? The only important thing on zone battle is how much junk you send. So t spins or tetrises, back to backs, perfect clears, long combos and ideally all of these in big spikes. Winning with a steady stream of line clears is going to be hard. Watching your opponent screen and seeing when they are in trouble or about to launch a load of lines at you is a bonus too. Only clear singles, doubles and triples if you need to to get out of trouble.
  18. Don’t be that prick.
  19. Apart from him (or her) and Loki e grant obv
  20. It’s comics man, who actually dies in comics?
  21. Well, he’s supposed to be identical to the one we know up until (almost) the end of Avengers Assemble I think. And from that point on we get to know him better.
  22. There were a ton of Lokis in this and I didn’t care about any of them because the story was about one (or er, two). The existence of the multiverse doesn’t negate our relationships and meaning with the ones we know.
  23. But it wasn’t anybody, it was Loki. He was an utter cunt in Thor 1, doubled down in Avengers 1 and was up to his neck in deep shit with Thanos and Earth at the end. Nothing he tried ever worked out and he was destined to repeat the loop infinitely (or die trying) regardless of how much he tried to break it. Rather sobering I would have thought. Seeing every life ambition you have laid out in front of you as completely futile, you might give some serious consideration to trying to fight the system. And in doing so, change. No one else gets Loki. He’s burned every bridge and no one ever trusts him. Until he meets a good version of himself, showing him what he could be, even against the greatest odds, and he falls in love for the first time ever. Very fitting to find love with essentially himself. It’s a good redemption arc for a single version of Loki, and makes him interesting because we end up trusting him and liking him despite knowing what he’s just done (tried to take over earth!)
