Fucked beyond repair

Do you have a video game that you should absolutely love on paper, but in reality publishers/localizers/incompetent devs ruined it so hard that you just won't touch it?
Was an attempt to fix such game ever occured?
Did you try to fix it yourself?

Obviously I'm not talking about shit like NMS or MN9, those were obvious hoaxes from get go, but more in lines with Hyper Light Drifter or Xenoblade Chronicles X.
Or Slain, that in fact was redeemed into pretty damn good game after devs decided to rework it from ground up.

Its funny how I used to see plenty of anons years back on cuckchan acting like they were the saving grace to whatever they handled; that had WDs done English scripts accurate to the Japanese ones, those posters wouldn't have found the games enjoyable to begin with. Or excusing their behavior as "such liberty taking was the only way we'd have gotten anime-styled JRPGs out here in the first place" (which conveniently ignores the likes of, in regards to the PS1, Sony having brought Grandia, Wild Arms 1 and WA2 over, Konami having brought Suikoden, Namco with Tales of Destiny and Eternia, etc, so clearly there was some interest even if anime wasn't that popular). Wasn't until I came here that I started to see such adamant dislike of what they did. Honestly not sure if I ever want to play the likes of Lunar until/unless someone makes a retranslation patch (or I decide to learn moon). To be fair though, it's mostly the RPGs I've heard they fucked around with. Haven't heard if, or how badly, the likes of Gungriffon Blaze or Silpheed: The Lost Planet wound up being at their hands for example.

Bloodborne. It has EVERYTHING I like. Victorian era combined with gothic styles. Lovecraftian lore. Fucking werewolves and werewolf hunters, similar combat to dark souls, guns as an off weapon. And yet it bores the ever living hell out of me, to the point i've never finished it. I just found it to be so dull and boring. It's annoying. I was sure I finally found a lovecraft styled game I could enjoy, but its so subpar to me.

Diablo loot.
MGS5
Repetitive mission. Unfinished. A case study of why most open worlds suck. The world is just there for the sake of novelty, no fun side activities other than grind resource. Also forced multi-player and the Mother Base kikery.
Elex
Plot ripped straight from Ass Defect. Not mysterious blank character with wits, snark, and charm like previous games, another fucking "commander" with a personality of a salt lick. Cannot display both equipped melee and ranged weapons when Gothic 2 back in 2002 managed to do so.
Witcher 3
Fun on the first run, the second, not so. Weak ass combat, but good world building. Open world and quests are horrendous. It is like a girl with good knockers in both balance, size, and shape but sporting a flat ass.

Bentley Collins

Ni No Kuni appears charming on the surface, everything with the style and music seems right. Then you actually play it and notice the ridiculous levels of handholding, the combat being atrocious against all reason, and more and more you skip the dialogs because they are just irrelevant chatter.

I put down the game and watched the rest of the cutscenes online, all the while wondering how someone could screw up this bad.

Cuckchan or not I dunno, but Vanguard Bandits is good game, even with fucked up translation.
And it's not XBX kind of fucked up where they ruin characters and insert memes just to spite those pesky sexist japs.
They did it because lol why not. They were faggots sure, but not deliberately evil ones at least.

Dare I say if you can whack "lovecraftian" god to death with a stick it's no longer a lovecraftian fucking god.

Diablo loot.
I liked it. I like diablo loot in general.

Jack Carter

Apparently the game was supposed to be completely different, but they either ran out of time or money and just ended up stretching the DS game's story over what was supposed to be a longer game. This is what I hear from gleaming over some Japanese reactions to the game at least.

Wakfu

Like what the hell, ankama. I don't know how you can possibly fuck things up this hard.

Also Mabinogi.
It has some of the most unique ideas for an MMO, but it got bogged down by an aging engine, features got forgotten rather than updated, and the combination of a hellish grind, stupidly poor drop rates, and gacha economy put the final nails in the coffin.

Cooper Wilson
Cooper Wilson

It's not like DRM can't be cracked.
The worst case is when the game itself is fucked.

I played a bit of both and found them charming but ungodly boring after a few hours. It felt like art team did their best and poured they love into them, but coder were just like "meh it kinda werks, let put this out or whatever".

Brody Sanders
Brody Sanders

but not deliberately evil ones at least
m8 shitting up the script and wanting to chop up games to sell them separately at full price is as deliberate and evil as one can get when it comes to translations.
They fucked the difficulty in a lot of the games they touched too. In Alundra every single thing has its HP almost doubled.

Isaiah Peterson

It's rather mind boggling how a developer can fuck up so thoroughly.
Yeah, but it's also a bit of natural progression if you look at bioware's games from BG2 on, not to mention the development length for the game was absurd, something like 5 years IIRC
Biggest waste of an original setting though.

we made this blood magic Roman empire that's pretty neat
they're also constantly fighting technologically advanced giant Ottomans
but fuck that, you're gonna fight not-orcs in generic medieval fantasy land

Evan Moore

Wakfu has a really cool combat system and some great boss fights. Single player it is utterly boring because you miss a lot of the tactics, and early on the fights aren't interesting.

But Ankama makes it worse every patch, so don't bother looking for the fun.

For Mabinogi, it's understandable why someone might not like it, but consider the following:

It's an MMO with:
-a classless system
-theoretically a wide range of builds and player types (this was more true before the everyone is lvl 15000 meta)
-the first MMO with a good music system
-Tons of craft skills so you can do shit when you don't feel like fighting (unfortunately, gachas and modern content made 99.9% of crafting obsolete)
-An ungodly amount of cosmetics (Most of them are gacha and event only now)
-An active combat system based on tactics (made mostly obsolete by newer skills and pet spam)
-Cool random shit like jousting, trade routes, and hot air balloons (now 99% of this stuff is obsolete.)
-Some really great storylines based on Celtic lore (also some terrible ones.)
-Some really unique features like aging, gaining weight, hidden affection meters with npcs, keyword based chat, having npcs forget you, etc (most of these are also way less relevant than they used to be, thanks to how quickly people rebirth nowadays.)
The list goes on

Nigoro made the really unfortunate and baffling decision with their remake of La-Mulana to not have proper movement key remapping despite the original having full keyboard customization. For over a year, people including myself were begging them to add it in across various communication channels, but they consistently pretended like we didn't exist while answering other fans' queries.

I had been waiting for some time to buy the game, assuming that surely eventually they would add in this incredibly simple feature to bring the remake up to control parity with the original game, but eventually I just gave up. It's a continual source of frustration for me because I replay the original all the time.

It's pretty simple why, original devs who designed the engine and base gameplay back in beta no longer work in the company, a bunch of retards took over who have no idea how to design/balance and now it's a clusterfuck that has no idea what type of game it wants to be.

Pillars of Eternity, a game from one of my favorite RPG studios programmed by Tim Cain: should be amazing but then I started bumping in to backer characters and hearing their lame fanfiction stories and within less than an hour I was playing something else. I still might go back but if any of you faggots ever do a Kickstarter be sure to not offer shit like Backer NPCs, in fact be sure the backers don't contribute any sort of writing at all. If they want their name on a fucking tombstone or statute that's one thing, but every bit of narrative you have in your game shapes it's tone including shitty fan fiction that you took the time to indicate was made by someone else.

Dylan Hughes
Dylan Hughes

despite the original having full keyboard customization
No, it doesn't. The original has five menu keys bound to F1-F5 and the ten zone-warping keys bound to 0-9 that can't be remapped. All you can rebind are the four movement keys, your weapon, and your subweapon. Every year that goes by that you post this it only gets stupider. You may as well complain that the original's pretense to having gamepad support is moot since you can't bind any menu keys or warping keys to the controller, which is actually game-breaking and more functionally frustrating than having your movement bound to the arrow keys.

Jose Nguyen

I suppose that's a valid rebuttal, however the F-keys and warping numbers aren't anywhere near as critical as basic movement and action inputs. The original lets you map these to whatever you want, the remake does not. I prefer playing on keyboard and arrow keys are fucking shit.

nu/v/ unpopular opinions thread
Consider the fallowing, this crap was once bullied. Now its tolerated.
MGSV TPP & GZ was great, in fact best in the entire series. If you disagree you are clearly a plebeian from reddit.
I was a fan of Baldur's Gate. By all means Mass Effect and Dragon's Age should have been games I loved. But instead they just relieved how shallow Western RPGs could be and in demystifying my reverence for Bioware it lead to me having a more critical eye which was also retroactively applied to the older titles. I cannot respect anything from these developers any more not even the "classics" that I used to cherish.
Dwarf Fortress is far to autistic to be genuenly fun.
Ni No Kuni was charming, it just failed to reach its full potential. I suspect it might have ended up in development hell and was cut short due to budget problems. The Easy hand-holding is just a product of lack of confidence in the finished product. Its Third Act is a complete let down, the story easily off exploring the psychology to escapism to cope with life, death and other traumatic questions. I could have been a metaphor for a deeper subtext but instead they wrap it up with playing it straight and never reconcile the significance of this all potentially taking place in the child's imagination. But not many JRPG are genuinely challenging, its typically boils down to a matter of how much grinding it demands. At the time of development there was alot of experimentation with trying to balance a JRPG around not having to grind and many normalfags even now base their opinions of RPGs on how little grind is required to complete the main game.

Star Wars The Old Republic.

What the fuck happened with that game? You watch the trailer they released it looked awesome, giant battles between sith and jedis turned into a shitfest of boring dialog. It wasn't even close to the quality of the KoTor-games either. As a single player game it sucked, as a multiplayer game it stunk.

What all these Wow-killers never understood was that in the beginning, World of Warcraft was a fun game, where you had fun with friends and strangers online. Not a grindfest to the end of the story/top level. Not shitty instances everywhere and not stick-figures for characters.

You're a faggot. I played SoC with no patches other than the official ones and had no problems. You can patch the game to fix glaring problems and lack of polish, but you need to be a mental cripple to be unable to do so since there are really not that many mods around and most are standalone.

E.Y.E. for me. They nailed the design so damn well. But the last time I picked it up a year ago, I got stuck repeating the same 2-3 hours segment multiple times because the save system is completely nonsensical.

Why do you think Hyper Light Drifter is "fucked beyond repair"? The only real problems it had were a 30FPS lock they fixed over a year ago, and some controller detection fuckups that may or may not be fixed (but I use K&M so it's not relevant to me).

Also to stay on topic, Spore and Fire Emblem: _Heroes____

I tried to fix Rust by writing a full rebalance mod. It wasn't enough - the game just doesn't have enough content and I was limited to modifying serverside shit. Hell, I was about 30% done with adding modular robots (picrelated) to add PvE, but the difficulties with hosting the mod just turned it into more trouble than it was worth. It was a good bit of experience though.

The mod itself must've had a little over a hundred tweaks and adjustments to the core game.

(((EA DICE))) kept also forcing cucks, mostly toxic youtubers into the game literally by associating toxic white selfhate cucks with events

it finally resulted with players fleeing the game and the numbers crashed.

game used to be much more heavily skill based
later heavily casualised by making all dodge moves have longer frames, by increasing inventory slots and making them have ridiculous amounts of health potions in each slot (500 of each type of HP potion in contrast to the previous 16) which completely eliminated the need to plan ahead what you will take with you and increased HP by the exact same amount as they did monster damage so that the game becomes more about stats
as a result of which, in order to maintain the difficulty, bosses start being made to have absurd amounts of health and spam projectiles/area of effect attacks which deal absurd amounts of damage and instakill moves
oh yeah and moves that can ignore iframes because fuck having consistent mechanics
also fuck PvP too, let's just fucking kill it for good by ruining any fun you could have with it so that people stop asking us to fix the issues it has and just go back to complaining about how boring endgame is
most of the grind is also trying to get gear that you can only get from the battle you can't join because you don't have the gear to participate in it
Most of the enjoyment people get in endgame doesn't even come from the content itself, it comes from abusing how absolutely fucking broken the game is.

A few.

Oblivion
Arena, Daggerfall, and Morrowind were some of my favorite games. Everything I saw and read about Oblivion sounded so absolutely wonderful, and I waited years just knowing that it would be something amazing. Morrowind easily gave me 3,000 hours of enjoyment, so thinking of a new foray into that universe was everything I was hoping for. It was going to be great.

Except, it wasn't.

It was the most heart-sinking disappointment I've ever played. I played Morrowind for 3,000 hours. I dropped Oblivion after 20. I don't think I felt that kind of disappointment and blatant dumbing down since Deus Ex: Invisible War launched. Fuck that game too.

The Movies
Molyneux made it sound like a much more interactive version of 3D Movie Maker, which I played the shit out of. Too bad it tried to be The Sims and some management game and failing miserably at both. Fuck Molyneux.

APB
I love the shit out of GTA. So getting what was essentially mass multiplayer GTA sounded like the most fun shit ever. I followed that piece of crap for years, just to get a dressup game with really shitty GTA-lite gameplay on a shitty engine that became a hackfest overnight, and dead within three months. What a fucking disaster.

Va11-Hall-A
Cyberpunk universe, cute art, great soundtrack. I was expecting something like Papers, Please, but with drinks instead of documents.

Steamworld Dig was a neat concept neatly executed: the grinding was enough to get you pumped for new upgrades but not too much to get bored, the artstyle, setting, controls and powers were great.

HLD had a mountain of cut content, which you can see a lot of it in early trailers and dev logs.

heroes and generals was kinda like this
game is in beta
actually pretty well balanced, axis and allied win ratios are pretty close
has fun mechanic where you can only field light/medium/heavy armour in battles where the general commanding your force has contributed those war materials
this led to some really one-sided matches but encouraged you to stick with a good general who used said materials where they were needed
economy is stable and fair; you could unlock good things like the cool tanks or cool weapons with long but not unbearable currency grinds
new faction (commies) drops
russian weapons and tanks are way overpowered
russian antitank rifle can four-shot a konigtiger
community flips the fuck out
devs respond by jacking up the prices on the russian tanks/antitank rifles
russian-playing community flips the fuck out
devs respond by jacking up the price on everything else
matches continue to be sealclubbing matches where a few whale generals will throw insane amounts of real money into the wars, leading to matches where heavy tanks will be up against tiny light tanks, or where one side will have aircraft and the other won't (this kills the ground-pounder)
community continues flipping the fuck out
devs respond by changing the damage scaling for heavy armour vs. everything else, now it's just a slower version of light tanks and little baby stuart tanks can now reliably do damage to or kill heavy tanks at long range
majority of the playerbase leaves
devs jack up economy prices again
jesus what a fucking train wreck. the worst part is that it actually used to be not great, but reliably good, and a fun way to waste a couple hours here and there

strawman
when the checkpoints are actually being triggered. did some more searching last night and apparently there is some garbage decision where the game saves in two locations - a My Docs location and the main folder that often conflict, leading to lost progress. could be the source of the problem for me. still registers as dev incompetence to me.

Same here.

I got HLD and Furi at the same time, they seemed both like similar games right up my alley, but I was expecting HLD to be the big one. Jumped into it first, just felt like le dark souls memery with random evangelion ripoffs thrown around (I don't care if they're just homages or not, they were so obvious it really takes you out of it) and surprisingly clunky.

Furi was good though. Real good, wasn't expecting that.

To add to the thread, maybe Destiny? A persistent online MMOFPS with a sci-fi mixed with swords-n-sorcery fantasy aesthetic sounds pretty cool. Destiny 2 on PC apparently doesn't even have public chat, because someone on the dev team had hurt feelings once in CSGO and decided letting you chat with anyone created a toxic community.

I guess the conflict stuff in fates sounds interesting, but how can you love something controlled by current year IS.
Echoes was an anomaly that I doubt we'll ever get again, unless some major staffing changes happen.

Oh great another "I don't speak any Japanese but I am an expert on every game that is localized or translated and they are all shit" thread. You fucking people are literally cancer. How can you even judge a translation/localization if you don't first understand the target language and compare both the original product to the translated script? When will you people understand that it's not about your feelings, it's about making money and a company is gonna go with what they think makes them money, even if it means that they rewrite something from the original. Bringing a game over to another country with another culture that doesn't necessarily have an extensive knowledge of the source culture is not an easy task.

They're only meant for controllers because they gimp the shit out of movement and combat with that stupid follow-camera. Look back to the early 2000s and you can't find entire warehouses worth of third person melee games with controls far tighter and more responsive than any "3d fighting game" released in the last few years which target controllers are a primary HID.

The game is also a fucking disaster. Every time I boot it up thinking "maybe it'll be better this time" it feels like the developers are laughing behind my back at the fact I'm even trying to play it. Even when able to look passed the servers, the bad netcode, the bad class balance, the lame maps, the bizarre hit detection, the narrowness of the gameplay, you see the game can't even deliver on the very very basics of what it promised as a bare minimum because literally the only part that's good is the taekwondo kicks, and most of the actually good attacks make you look like a fucking clown.

Hey your boss is back to check on you now, it's been 15 minutes and you haven't translated it yet? You wanna keep your job or what? I got a couple more for you too when you finish with that one, but don't take all day.

How would you write a character that ends all of his sentences with であります constantly refers to himself as 自分 and only uses formal versions of common nouns and adjectives?

What about another character that has a really heavy Osaka accent; how would you get the Japanese stereotype of a person from Kansai and how they speak and what they are like while keeping within the framework of the dialect without resorting to writing them like a regional American stereotype?

Joshua Mitchell

what where your issues with XBX?

Benjamin Cook
Benjamin Cook

Rule of Rose is the only "horror" game to make me disgusted by the characters and the things they did. Kids are cruel, and it's pretty crazy how far people will go when they don't realize the extent of their damage. The story and the way it's told is really interesting and there's a lot of "show, don't tell" going on. Super great romance story about a lesbian and an infinitely (un)lucky cross dressing hostage and her dog.

But whoever actually put the game together comes from another planet. It has really shitty combat which isn't important at first because you're supposed to run from fights but as the game goes on the combat becomes more prevalent until you're just going from one arena to the next. Jennifer doesn't have any period of hit invincibility so if you walk over a flopping fish or a puddle of acid you'll die in 3-4 seconds from full HP. The generic enemies can chain grab you up to 3 at the same time and they'll jump back on as quickly as you can throw them off. The hitboxes are weird and unfair most of the time and once you go below 50% health you move at like 1/3 of your normal speed which makes it way easier to get hit.

Luis Miller

Yeah fuck that shit I can't stand that it's so unprofessional to just throw in some random meme that you think people are going to get or maybe only you find funny. It's fine if it's something relating to Japanese culture that the average English speaker familiar with say American culture wouldn't understand. It's more about companies wanting to make the most money and markets and translators and others that localize the game for release in the US often are out of touch with who actually plays the games.

Adventuring is okay but the combat takes forever because it's so easy to crash the game. I'm always so afraid of letting my dudes attack right after each other because the game lets you queue up commands but doesn't cancel them or automatically switch targets if your first target dies in the meantime. Some of the special attacks are hilarious but they also take absolutely forever to finish.

Grayson Flores
Grayson Flores

This was actually the last game I preordered, I was 16 at the time. Unfortunately I lost my job 5 years ago (fine now) and being white I was declined any government help or unemployment and all I got from my mom was DONE WIPING YOUR ASS so I had to sell it to keep the house. Actually paid my bills for the month. Wish I still had it.

Blog aside, game was 100% on point in every department besides the mechanics. Visually, musically, cinematically, just great. At first I just glossed over the combat, then the game decides you need to use them in boss fights and you are in for a world of fuck.

And I'm not a hater of this style at all, Silent Hill 2 is my favorite game and I dumped hundreds of hours into Resident Evil Outbreak. It was like if every meme criticism of classic survival horror was actually true you'd have this game.

I don't know if it's infinite but I would just stockpile biscuits before every fight, Brown always found more, and if you do this the game is no problem but it's not exactly fun. Still I'd recommend it, it's certainly unique.

Camden Cooper
Camden Cooper

Oh boy, I should really save this as a pasta this time.

There are A LOT of problems with XBX.
On the surface you see shit like censorship, meme'd up translations, mischaracterization of certain characters, terrible fucking dubbing and outright cut feature that is boob slider.
Now one thing is trying to cut down fanservice, which is inexcusable in on itself, but when a female player that bought into space adventure and cute aliens or JPRG on WiiU can't make a character to look like herself because her boobs are too big/small, now this is a fucking retarded even by SJWs standards. What happened to muh representation?
There are patches that at least partially fix those - you can make an undub and you can uncensor clothes.
But boob slider seems to be too much of a technical problem to casually patch back in with 3rd party tools, and while it is theoretically possible to make re-translation of the entire script, nobody would do that, it's just unrealistic.
So even if you undub and uncesor game you're still left with bad, sometimes misleading "localization" and no boob slider. Sounds bad enough for some people to boycott game just because of that.

But it goes deeper.
Game is WiiU exclusive. And WiiU has weaker hardware than some modern mobile phones. Just let that sink in for a while.
As a result we get a game that is locked at 720p and 30 fps. And it still gets FPS dips in some situations and areas.
To add insult to the injury game's assets are quite high fidelity and pretty beautiful. But you can only verify that through rare official pre-renders or, surprise, fucking emulation. Game looks acceptable in native 4k and pretty damn good in 1080p.
Too bad the only way to experience it that way is through closed-source patreoned up emulator that may or may not be built on stolen nintendo code, we will probably never know.
And it still has its own problems like the need to look up precompiled shader cache or make it yourself by stuttering through the entire game as well as some bugs here and there.
Oh and most emulator versions are not compatible with it because lol zelda, so you need to find specific version of emulator too.
Does that sound bad? Because we're not through.

Nolan Edwards
Nolan Edwards

but is it fun?
I was considering trying it out - never played a xenoblade game before.

Ian Parker

Game's director writer is none other than Tetsuya Takahashi, also known as Hideo Kojima of JRPGs.
Ever heard of Xenogears and how it is one of the best JRPGs ever made while not being even half of what it was supposed to be? Yep, that's because of Takahashin. Nigger wrote an Evangelion fan-fic in more pages than fucking War and Peace, and was still writing after goddamn game was released.
Fucking Xenosaga trilogy is like 3 times less than what he wanted it to be.
Guy might be a creative fountain, but writes too much. And plans too much. And doesn't know that money don't grow on trees.
The only more or less complete game written by him is Xenoblade 1, which is fucking miracle. I dunno how, maybe he was kept in check from get go, but XB1 turned out to be exactly what it was planned. I.e. nowhere near as huge as fucking Xenogears or Xenosaga.

And in XBX he was back at it. There were planned several human cities, at least two more continents, two times more unique characters. There was supposed to be an entire squad of girls like Elma, the Black Knight who only appears for 3 seconds after closing credits was fully designed and coupled with his unique mech, that never appeared in game.
Lone hero briefly mentioned in the opening and referenced a couple of times in-game was supposed to have an entire arc about him and elma and their fucking two-pilot mech Ares, that only appears for 2 seconds in the opening. And don't confuse it with Prog Ares, that was built from it using Earth tech.
Story itself was supposed to be about Elma, just like Xenogears was about Fei and XB1 was about Shulk. But nintendo forced in online component and custom silent protagonist, because I dunno, maybe they thought that "singleplayer MMO" is not supposed to be an insult.
And just like Xenogears and Saga this piece of shit is roughly half of what the author planned, despite how fuck-huge it is now. And it hurts the game more than any of the problems mentioned before. And not because evul corpuration didn't let "genius" to realize his potential, but because Takahashi is dumb fuck who can't plan and wastes his efforts and talent writing retarded fan-fiction instead of coherent stories like XB1, which was most likely a fluke.

Do you find playing something and seeing where it leads, how it can unfold and flourish and never reaching that point "fun"?
Do you find half-assed stories and concepts "fun"?
Do you find forced grinding and filler content "fun"?
Do you find seeing how resources, talents and development time was blatantly and horrendously mismanaged "fun"?
Humanity's life is on the clock, but run around saving cats and delivering pizza. Is that fun?
Is huge mechs having two times less HP than your token loli fun?
Is having cool and mysterious characters being introduced and instantly dropped off forever fun?
You tell me.
You fucking tell me.

Ratchet & Clank. It's like a mix between Crash Bandicoot and Banjo-Kazooie, and I fucking LOVE those games, yet no entry in the entire series has made me want to get into it. My mom is totally into the series and has owned and 100% completed almost all of them, and she plays less vidya than I do.

Fire Emblem is also a series I want to get into, but every time I think about it i'm reminded how fucked the series is.
Older games are missing a lot of features that make the later games great and Shadow Dragon is Japan only.
GBA era games are impossible to come across.
Awakening is said to be amazing and a great starting point, but all the waifu trash and knowing how cucked Fates is completely kills my desire to play either.
<Unrelated to the main series, FE:Warriors is shit.

Metal Gear is also one of those series for me. Though i'm not the biggest into the stealth genre, I don't mind it and can certainly enjoy myself with the series, but after what happened with Kucknami and TPP looking so boring and unappealing, I never find the want to get into it.

What part of "mischaracterisation" you don't get?
In the original Lin is cheerful and friendly girl who only picks up on Tatsu because she finds him annoying and rarely Vandam because of "gentle giant" thing going for him so no way he can get back at a little girl. She's respectful to the most of the cast for the entire game.
But in the dub she's snarky cunt pestering everybody, including Elma. Hilariously enough nobody pays attention to that, because it's not like 8-4 could re-animate any of the cut-scenes so hopefully player will just address that to her being a kid.
They are two different, almost opposite characters between the original and the "localization".

If that alone is not fucking the product up beyond repair then I dunno what is.

Ayden Perry

Oh and by the end she stops picking up on Tatsu and starts to act friendly and caring towards him, because they grow into proper friends.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Game
game is about 40% complete
5 chapters promised, but only 2.3 (Ground Zeros = ch1, TPP CH1 = ch 2, TPP CH2 = 0.3 completed of ch3) released
tons of dialogue cut for no good reason with very lame excuse given
microtransaction paywall for everything development related because you don't earn MB coins fast enough for free to buy more FOBs and you can't level up teams enough without having tons of FOBs to do most of the development
it's obvious a lot more actual cutscenes were planned from the cassette tapes that don't have a tape filter and have a ton of sound effects
no codec or codec conversations, just cheap tips
injury healing system is setting a leg or using magic healing spray and injuries are stupid rare
hugely missed opportunity to have the MGS3 survival and injury healing mechanics present in an open world game where they would actually come into play
AI is broken and cheap in Africa, I've had snipers suddenly start shooting DURING the reflex mode segment when they're in a surprise animation and I've had armored vehicle mission helicopters suddenly be invulnerable and see me through solid objects
no camo index, have to spend 39000 GMP and wait a fucking minute to change camo at all when Snake Eater's system was perfectly fine and actually worked
no counter to riot suits but stun/sleep/smoke grenades and dicking around with decoys
no mission 51
gooftarded controls even on PC, I've had it interpret HOLDING the use key to fulton a vehicle out as a PRESS action instead
inconsistent explosion power, I've had unarmored enemies closer to an explosion take zero damage while those further away die
reflex mode is useless in vehicles and on ridable buddies because there's nothing you can do to get out of it like you can everywhere else
key dispatch missions are 100% gambling and take too long just to kill off your best soldiers and make you redo it again
Battle Gear is a cutscene and dispatch mission exclusive, pointless
no guard dogs, yet AI voice lines still act as if they're there
everything takes too long, like you're expected to enjoy taking 10 minutes to go back to mother base, shower, and go back into the field, which is necessary to get any new side ops to show up

I dunno how, maybe he was kept in check from get go, but XB1 turned out to be exactly what it was planned.
If memory serves, with Xenoblade Wii, he was originally going to apologize to NoJ for the amount of content he was going to have to cut to meet the then-deadline, only for NoJ to extend it so that he could make a better, more complete game (for once). Not that that didn't stop an area called "Bionis' Shoulder" from still being effectively cut out (the game still has the modeling as it's used in one cutscene towards the end, and thus people have been able to hack into it), but the plot doesn't make reference to it, nor does the player have much reason to believe they should try to head there. Is a bit funny though that the setting of one of the more common concept art images (pic related) is effectively set an area you can never legitimately reach.

But yeah, still the most complete game he's written for to my knowledge.

It introduced so many interesting, innovative, and fun to use mechanics and then did so little with them.

It introduced a believable and all-too-common game industry story with some interesting twist elements and then fucked that story up completely at the end.

It came so close to being my goty that year but it just didn't quite make it.

Fix: Play the Dark Sector game that came before it. Same universe, far superior, nobody to ruin it.

Why are we still here? Just to suffer?

From Software only make games that are good on paper but poor in execution that's like
their whole thing.
Dare I say if you can whack "lovecraftian" god to death with a stick it's no longer a lovecraftian fucking god.
didn't they stop cthulhu by just hitting him with a fuckin boat

It was ages since I've read that shit. Did they just sail away from it?

He's waking up, he's coming up out the water, and they just crash a regular old boat into his head and that stops him iirc

everyone cries about the difficulty of WD games
mfw the translation was always a bigger offender in my opinion
Perhaps they should get gud and just unfuck the translation instead of giving the nuGeneration babby mode.

Last night I got to try Windforge.
That game has a very solid core and a bunch of fun mechanics.
Sadly, the devs abandoned and a lot of things remained as placeholders.
It's a damn shame.

Actually, they drive the boat THROUGH his head and punch a hole.
They sail for a mile or so thinking "wew, we're safe, right?" Then one of them looks through his telescope and has a terror-induced seizure (dies shortly later, heart failure) while the other guy looks at the horizon and sees a formless green mass re-shaping itself. He has the sense to NOT look at it with the telescope and just drive the fuck out of there.

Indian cultists later kill him by dropping a fucking sarcophagus on his head.

Rainbow six siege
They never truly improved the netcode, DLC ops look more and more out of place, took them almost 2 years to fix the brightness issue when looking outside and esports pandering out of the ass
