An outsider's perspective on the Soulsborne discourse

2023.05.29 01:46 calculatingaffection An outsider's perspective on the Soulsborne discourse

So I randomly decided to do some reading into the whole "This game is unfair / No it isn't you just suck" drama mainly involving Sekiro and to a larger extent Soulsborne games overall. Melodramatic tweets were read and a good time was generally had. From what I can guess, the gist of it according to the internet is that game journalists can't git gud and they get bashed on by everyone who has the time or experience to git gud.
Really though, I think I've identified the root of the conflict, mainly involving three groups: players with tremendous experience playing Soulsborne games, average players who have general experience playing RPGs but not specifically Soulsborne games, and game journalists.
From what I can understand, for the average player, these games are meant to take a while to get through. We're talking months to possibly years to finish depending on how often someone plays. A common viewpoint I heard for Sekiro, at least, is that it doesn't offer a ton of replay value, meaning the main draw is learning to be a master to begin with. They're tough-as-nails because to your average player, they're meant to last a long time.
Now to your veteran on the other hand, they're usually going to blow through them in the span of weeks or even days, depending on general skill level, because playing Soulsborne is kind of just what they do.
Now games journalists aren't usually veterans, and that's for the simple reason that it's more or less their job to play lots of games. Maybe Soulsborne players are just a completely different breed and really are superhumanly good at most or all types of games in general, but I kinda doubt it. I think to get, y'know, that good at games that require that level of dexterity you have to spend most of your allotted time for vidya on them.
And here's the rub: a journalist usually has to discuss the game within a short window of its launch as well as play numerous other games that debut around the same time period. They can't complete a playthrough in months or however-long and then be like "Oh yeah that game that released back last fall was really something!" I mean, they can, but people are also looking for People who actually read their content (hopefully a dwindling minority) want to know if something's worth the price within a few days. So a journalist who's like "this is way too difficult" after only spending a week at the controller is likely just frustrated because they ultimately can't do their job.
Meanwhile, this mindset is a slap in the face to both veterans and normies, both of whom see the grind as a badge of honor and the journalist as a rank coward for not willing to submit to it. And they're right to a certain extent. But ultimately a journalist isn't going to have the experience to grind through a difficult, skill-specific game in a relatively swift speedy manner, and simply playing it at the intended pace can't be done for their job. They need to complete it at the same rate as a veteran despite not having the requisite skill due to inherently needing to play from all genres.
Like, the infamous Forbes article on Sekiro was released only six days after the release. Like no shit dude, did you expect to clear a $60 game in the span of a week? Honestly, I feel like that just means you're not getting your money's worth at that point.
Honestly there's no real solution here. It's a matter of having three qualities you want out of a reviewer:
a) Representing the average player b) Having the integrity to play through the game without giving up or using cheats c) Providing feedback in a short amount of time after release
And only getting to pick two of them.
Idk, maybe I'm completely misrepresenting the issue. If my view of things brought dishonor upon your entire family and you feel obliged to kill me, sorry. I'm not really defending or criticizing anyone here, just trying to point what seems to be the problem from my own point of view.

2023.05.29 01:45 Relevant-Grade-1513 What is your take on Maglam Lord?

Please only people who have played the game give your insight. I just bought the game and what grabbed me on the back of the switch case was the romance aspect.

I'm not too deep into the game and the mechanics are very clunky. Dodge and attack are basically separate entities that can't be comboed is what I've seen unless I'm doing it wrong. I have to finish the attack before the dodge can properly process.
I honestly do not understand how to switch between skills on switch. It's locked onto default skills ZR and ZL and I'm not too sure how to change them to other skills. I would love help for this aspect.
I like the character art and was debating playing male or female. I'm female but the male option seemed nice as eye candy. I'm just trying to figure out how to progress the story because some requests seem very irrelevant to story progression. The one with the little girl you save I understand but it didn't need to be a "quest" I feel.
If it gets better please let me know. I would love to hear from someone who reached endgame. I personally feel like if they did a day by day story progression it might've been better? I don't know how to word it.

2023.05.29 01:45 coaststl Luka & Contact Fouls [NBA OFFICIATING DISCUSSION]

2 Interesting Storylines over the past year involving Luka:
  1. Comparisons to Harden during Rockets Era
  2. Criticisms for arguing with refs too much
Both of these boil down to officiating: how on court refs call games, and how the league sets the rules/directs the refs to call games.
While Luka rightly was criticized this season as he was frequently distracted by the refs, however Luka was at the same time emphasizing something that I believe to be a serious problem with NBA officiating as it stands currently.
Once you see it you can't unsee it.
Ironically, it was 1998, the highest ratings for a finals in NBA history that the Jazz had a record breaking low 54 points in an NBA Finals game. But it was actually the following season, after Jordan retired, that the pervasive issue of low scoring games became a serious focus for the league. In the early 2000s sweeping changes came to the league that progressively moved the rule set into one that much more favored offense and paved the way for the current era.
James Harden "metagamed" the NBA in the late 2010's, becoming a master of drawing contact on nearly every play and totally exploiting the ruleset to give his team an advantage. Harden wasn't unique in shooting a high volume of free throws per game, the NBA long has had very high volume free throw shooters in years past, it was HOW he was drawing contact that caused controversy. James would lunge, hook, kick out, and flop so frequently and get whistles. This made fans and media personalities alike frustrated with how these bizarre plays would be so impactful on games.
When this finally reached fever pitch, the NBA said they would call far less of these sorts of contrived shooting fouls. They changed rules that eliminate some of the more egregious exploits of the rules, such as needing to be in a proper shooting motion to get a shooting foul and not calling fouls on shots that unnaturally lunge into a defender in awkward ways to get "fake contact" for a foul. Many praised these changes, and we certainly saw a lot less of what Harden was doing.
The difference between Harden and say, Michael Jordan who also had a season as the #1 volume free throw shooter is that Jordan was getting fouled due to how hard it was to guard him and how effective he was offensively that at times you had to stop him from getting free looks all game long.
Luka is somehow a mix of Jordan and Harden in this regard. Luka IS A MASTER at drawing contact on his plays, but he doesn't need to flop dramatically to do so, the cadence of his movement is so dynamic and unpredictable that it is easy for him to use a few jjukes/fakes/hesi to get his defender in a bad position to get an easy bucket thru contact. At the same time, he is also someone who can single handedly take over a game, so defenders will foul him at times to stop him from getting easy looks.
There is a serious problem here. Luka is not flopping, hooking and kicking to try to get fouls every play. While he is most certainly playing in a manner to draw contact consistently, the contact he draws most of the time is legitimate per the NBA rules and thus should be shooting fouls.
Rick Carlyle commented on this during the height of Luka receiving criticism for arguing with refs this past season, essentially confirming that yes he is getting fouled a ton and a ton of them are no calls.
Harden identified and exploited the problem with the rules around shooting fouls, Luka is simply showing us how bad the problem is. No, Luka should not shoot 30 free throws per game, but this rule being so arbitrary has led to Luka getting hacked quite a few times a game with no calls.
My hot take here is that Luka is emphasizing something far more pervasive than just how it is effecting him. Infact I think the leagues response to Harden has been a trojan horse for a new brand of officiating that swings the pace of games substantially. The NBA knows fans hate whenever the outcome of a game is fully decided by the refs and rules such as coaches challenge and reviewing plays has been great to make that a much less frequent occurrence, but the arbitrary calling of contact fouls has a substantial impact on swinging the momentum of games. If your team is on a run and the opponents get an "and 1" on a legitimate contact foul you generally won't care about it, and the inverse is true that if your team is getting trounced and one of your guys gets a shooting foul you will cheer for it. The problem is that these same contact fouls or worse are getting overlooked or called seemingly arbitrarily throughout the game. So much momentum swings thru these calls and it just seems so obvious the leagues response to Harden just hid the problem instead of addressing it.
IMO the NBA Rules of the 90s era that allowed for more physicality and focused a lot more on calling fouls for defensive plays that literally were hacking at players arms while shooting was far superior to the current ruleset, maybe some of those old rules should come back.

2023.05.29 01:44 Mysterious-Chip-1396 29 [F4R] polyamorous woman deeply attracted to femininity looking for friends or more. EST NYC or online

Hi all, i am a happily married woman, (to 34MTF) and we are very secured in that relationship. But I know I have a huge amount of love, time and attention to give-romantic or platonic! I just love femininity, regardless of your chosen gender or assigned gender at birth, if you’ve got a fem streak, I hope you reach out!
A bit about me- i love learning languages, playing games (especially DnD) and chilling with my cats, especially on my terrace where I have a little garden.
I’d describe myself as pretty introverted, but I’m becoming increasingly sociable. I’m going through a pretty stressful period at work at the moment, so I’d love someone to talk to about literally anything else haha. I like people who get excited about things, who aren’t afraid to be a little silly, but also like deep conversations, and who are generally pretty chill.
As I said, I love femininity. Fem guys in particular make my heart sing, and honestly, I’m not afraid to simp hard for the right person. Make of that what you will!
Just in case you’re curious what I look like, I’m 5’3 about 125 pounds with dark hair and pale skin. I have a light British accent as well.
Also very open to mainly online if you’d prefer.

2023.05.29 01:44 GemelYT Minecraft language

The vast majority of us have played Minecraft at least once in our lives, if not the least, we have no idea of the existence of this popular game that is more than 10 years old. However, a small group of people have entered a much more complex level of this game. Thus, in this post, the Minecraft language or also known as "SGA language" (Standart Galactic Alphabet) will be addressed in a general way.
To begin with, for all those who have tried to understand this language, the same question has been asked, how is each word pronounced? And my case was no exception, however, when inquiring about it I did not find useful data to achieve the objective.
Therefore, it would be gratifying if people who have knowledge about SGA pronunciation can share such information so that the community has the ability to learn the language.
In case there is no defined pronunciation, I encourage you to answer, how do you think each letter of the SGA is handled?

2023.05.29 01:43 Vivid_Technology_145 Abusers Wedding

Simply what the title states, my abusers wedding just passed and I am spiraling down a dark hole. I should also mention that we are related by blood.
I’m gonna try and keep this vague.
For years I was molested by a family member, and it was only as I got older that I realized what happened to me. I kept it all in and played pretend, but I tried to take my life several times. It was only after highschool that I told people what he did, but they didn’t believe me. Only one who did at the time was my best friend. So after that I was homeless until I gave in and moved a few states away. I was doing better not being attached to the person, but I was also living with family so I couldn’t escape it. Well my family moved and I stayed in this state. A few months ago I got a text saying “*** is getting married and you have to come.” The audacity right? The person who texted me this also didn’t believe me about the abuse. I never sent a response and only got a few more texts about it, until they gave up.
Well, obviously I have social media and my family and friends posted about this wedding. I want to scream and yell and cry and… I don’t want to be here anymore. I am left to deal with the pain of his actions, and I have to deal with him being perfect in their eyes while I suffer.
I don’t think I’ll ever talk to a lot of my family again, and that kills me because we were such a close group. I have a lot to work out but this is just helping me vent.
Why do the abusers get to live their life while the victims crash and burn?

2023.05.29 01:42 jayareelle195 Son missed All Stars

Kinda frustrated, we found out who made the LL 10/11 AS team yesterday, and my guy missed out. I'm more upset at the process than the fact he didn't make it. As of rn he's hitting .400 (16/40) with 13 BB and 5 K. Out of the 18 or so kids who should be considered for All-Stars this places him about 7th or 8th based on GameChanger stats. Not a slamdunk by any stretch, but deserving of one of the 12 roster spots. Found out that the process is the 6 league managers, and a player vote that counts as 1. 7 total. No statistics are apparently used, the kids pick their cliques and the managers pick their kids. Also if your kid hasn't been directly coached by the other managers at some point coming up thru the system, they may not know who they are. It's subjective af. There's only a tryout for 10u, 11u and 12u is based on reputation. My son isn't a masher, he's kinda small, he plays an above average center field, hits a ton of singles with the occasional double or triple (2 of each), hes not someone you gameplan for, but solid. There's a bunch of kids that always seem to make these things. It was hard to tell a .400 hitter with awesome strike zone discipline that it wasn't enoug,. when it absolutely should've been. As a father, what do I do? I feel that the process is wrong, you should be using the resources you have (GameChanger and the books), and there should be an in person tryout at every level for evaluation so kids don't slip through the cracks because they don't pimp homeruns, gritty to the dugout, or cry on.the mound. He worked hard, this was the goal. It sucks.

Hello hello. I am a 19 year old who is interested in sending an occasional email-type letter to someone and hopefully they can write some back. I tend to be quite reserved in person so it would be nice to have someone to write to without having to do any face to face communications.
Anyways, I am working full time as of now, so I would be happy to hear about your job or what you are studying at college and to compare it to my experience. I love animals, especially dogs, and will joyfully receive any photos of yours. I also paint figures and occasionally draw, and would like to see any creative works you do. I also enjoy playing video games with friends, especially ones that are team focused, like Deep Rock Galactic, Risk Of Rain, or LoL. Working out is also something I try and do everyday.
I would prefer to talk with someone near my age, as I know plenty of folks older than me, so between 17 and 22 would be ideal, but I am not overly picky. Also, this would be anonymous, I would not be comfortable sending my address to someone I don't know very well.
Thank you for reading, enjoy your day, and leave a comment if you are interested.

2023.05.29 01:41 GrongoGreg Help me do the right thing...

I want to get real for a second. Ask yourself why do you play games? Specifically, why do you play warthunder? Is it for the memes? The history? Or could it just be because it is fun?

I am a content creator and for those of you who don't know what that experience is like it is something like this:
I wake up to eat, shower, and hit the gym. Pretty normal stuff really. I do work a real job that takes the majority of my time and go to school on top of that, In my free time I record, edit videos and publish them every Friday.
But their is one difficulty in my process now.
Morally I do not feel right recording warthunder content as the community feels like the game has failed them. I will acknowledge some people may not feel this way, but their are people out their that feel the game is on a decline.

My content is built around making people feel emotions, as I stand, feeling something is better then feeling nothing. So I make content that focuses on making you happy, sad, and angry in the hopes you can think on ways to navigate through your internal dialogue and ultimately accomplish some search in your own identity.(AKA think as an individual)
I do alot of editing with sound effects, cinematics, and rough story building that promotes a suggest a particular emotion.

With how Warthunder is right now,
I do not want to be the clown at a funeral...

I respect the game dearly, truly it has a lot going for it that is good. But I think someone needs to be bold ennough to say what problems need addressing.

I am not bound by any contract through gaijin(they have already denied my partnership at one point) and I think it is better this way. As a content creator you will slave away your mind to the game you are paid by, and I do not want that.

I want to have free unbiased analysis of warthunder without fear of checking my contracts. Hopefully that makes some sense.

So what do I need from you? Take some time to sit down make a cup of coffee/tea or grab a brewski
and let me know how you truthfully feel about warthunder. It is that simple!
Thanks guys,

Hey all, you can call me Cost. I wanted to make this post as a means to make a friendly nerd gathering. I'm inclined to see if I can meet some new talkative individuals who share similar interests. I'm mainly into gaming, comics, movies and horror (particularly horror flicks & Resident Evil.) I have a wide array of nerd interests there so no conversation is off the table. I just want to connect to down to earth, carefree individuals. We can talk, play or be sociable then hit me up if that's quite okay. If you have any sort of passion, endearing or love for these sorta things then just let me know. I have two discord servers for this purpose of horror or variety.
Be 18+ and older since I do like mature games. Prefer talking about mature gaming with adults around that age or older. [This is a strictly platonic request. No drama, no relationships.]

But after a fight ensues between the revertentes ferocious vice emperor, Zale, and the castilades flawless emperor, Vensidio, he begins to realize both are trying to escape their reality, just like him. And when he talks with a mysterious woman who recognizes this, and who devotes herself to making sure every player inside Illicitus Verum is healed both physically and mentally, Adonis falls in love with the revertentes healer, Trish.
So when Adonis becomes Trish’s assistant, making potions and healing his comrades against monsters, he finally feels as though his life means something to someone else. Soon enough, he even begins turning his real life around, until the players around him are forced into situations that reveal who they truly are— both inside and outside of Illicitus Verum— leaving Adonis terrified he’ll be the next victim. However, with no choice but to fulfill the same fate, Adonis soon learns everyone playing Illicitus Verum must confront their reality— even those he loves. No matter the consequences, all must face the Illicitus Verum, or better yet, the forbidden truth: becoming someone else can’t save you from reality, until you conquer it yourself.
Complete at 103,000 words, SOMEONE ELSE is an Upmarket Speculative Adult novel with an LGBTQ+ romantic twist. Embedded with themes of war-induced generational trauma shown in Cecile Pin’s WANDERING SOULS, as well as the sinister effects of VR shown in Alexandra Alemida’s UNANIMITY, the novel highlights how we must come together to help people help themselves before it’s too late.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

First Attempt
After receiving lots of good criticism about not elaborating on enough of the external conflict, I tried to dive more into the plot and tweaked some minor details. Again, any feedback is welcomed feedback, so don’t hesitate to tear this apart. Thanks.
