Can playing video games alter a person's behavior?
If someone is easily inflcuenced they will be influcenced by whatever media they consume. Of course that includes vidya, but it's no worse than any other form of entertainment.
The double standard is not really existent. It is just how different people are able to advertise their bullshit in different ways. The "videogames cause violent behaviour" movement was primarily a real life phenomenon, the "videogames cause misogynist behaviour" crowd is primarily an internet phenomenon (that occasionally swaps over into the real world, unfortunately). Both movements got their fundings from idiots, both will try to take action one way or the other.
What say you /v/? can the Arena Shooter truly come back?
Can we get a weapons that don't have enough exposure in video games?
I don't remember the last time I saw a flail or a morningstar in a video game.
Agreed, last time I saw a flail was in Ninja Gaiden, in fact Ninja Gaiden had a lot of weapons that were awesome, be back gonna go replay that.
What the fuck were the developers thinking when creating this boss. Holy shit.
How do you define gunplay?
Is it the punchiness of weapons? Their communicated weightinees and WHOMP they inflict on the enemy? Good ragdoll physics and environmental damage?
It seems to me that gunplay must start and end with weapon and the act of firing. Everything else just mask or enhances basic mechanics.
Its difficult to pinpoint one thing alone. Its a mix of visual feedback of the bullets on enemies/enviroment, sound design, weapon animation and feel of the guns depending on the genre ("realistic/unrealistic). Almost perfect example imo is black. bullets riccocheting from a metall barell through a wooden plank blew my mind when I first saw it. Games these days dont do that shit and its kinda sad.
pic semi related
Camera shake or movement to differentiate the sharp kick of shotguns and heavy bolt actions versus most semi autos. Good quality sound from the report to the boom to the echo, to the bullet impact (including different materials) are also critical. BF3 in whole was mediocre, but their soundwork was superb.
always kinda feels shitty when enemies barely actually cover themselves when taking cover, and when you can effectively just make them not react at all by turning the speed of time down, i mean seriously, its babbies first difficulty setting
Stop saying she's tall
nah, shes tall, just the way i like her
ITT only best butts in videogaming, no gay shit.
I posted some info on here a week or two ago but I finally have it mostly sorted out.
I have some exclusive information on the new Smash Bros. I'll start you guys off with a little bit.
Roster is 64 characters, as a little reference to Nintendo's history.
Very few cuts.
Don't have a lot of information on how characters play, not my leaker's area.
Ask away, I know quite a bit.
Why is Nintendo doing so poorly when the Wii U is the best console?
But Wii U is basically another Wii
A lot of people think that Wii U is a Wii with a tablet as a controller
Why don't you own a Wii U yet?
It is undeniably going to be the best console of the generation.
It is the only console getting real games such as Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Brothers Wii U, Splatoon, and Hyrule Warriors.
It is the only console that had renounced the evils of EA, Activision, and Ubisoft.
It is the only console with built in Off-TV play, no need for gimmicky accessories.
The Pro Controller has the longest battery life clocking in at 80 solid hours.
I cannot think of a reason to own any other console.
ITT: best girl of their respective series
Are there any video game characters that could kill SCP-682, permanently?
No, because some faggot on the site would make up some reason why it would survive.
But I'll just go with Aleph, he'd get rid of it somehow. Or just dance furiously and recruit it.
Where were you when
RAYMAN GOT LEAKED
>Rayman and a whole bunch of others
I think this guy just said something he wasn't supposed to.
Why the hell are buffs so powerful in dark souls? It upsets the balance between weapons. For example, a falchion is a high dps, quick striking weapon, but the downside is it's relatively low damage. With a buff it's main con is completely removed and it deals more damage than a fucking Murakumo. Katanas are already ridiculously OP and now they receive a huge damage boost. What is the reasoning behind this?
