That doesn't make any sense. wtf do you eat?cameltosis said:I feel like you've missed the point.So why not just add positives as well? And what’s wrong with normal? If normal means tip top fighting shape then that’s a good thingcameltosis said:A big fat "NO" from me.
Hunger and thirst in games is pointless. You start off normal and then deteriorate, eating and drinking just bring you back to normal. You're entire motivation is to prevent a negative consequence, there is nothing positive about it at all.
Beyond that, the typical game loops around eating and drinking are usually boring as fuck. Harvest, craft and eat, most of which is just looking at progress bars. It's not fun. All it does is add an additional chore to a game with no positive outcome.
I don't mind food that adds buffs, that's fine, but a simple hunger / thirst mechanic? no thanks
If you add positives, it's no longer hunger and thirst mechanics, it's something else. There is nothing wrong with normal, but I was already normal, the game is now just making me worse unless I eat or drink, two things that are boring as fuck in computer games.
So, at no point during the hunger and thirst cycle am I doing anything fun. It's boring to do, doesn't enhance my character, doesn't progress anything. It's just a pointless mechanic, so why bother at all?
I love this game.
Is it that good?? How's the exploration and combat? Not a huge fan of the crafting focus in most survival titles.
Again, all this has happened before.Shoko_Lied said:The only thing post modern here is the outrage it's causing. We're so prudishly cultured that we seek out things to find sexually offensive. Even if it's not sexual in and of itself. PUBG hasn't expressed anything sexual. Prudes simply have a warped sense of sexuality.That's not my point. You said it had to do with "postmodern lack of taste" and my point is that this "lack of taste has always been there".zymurgeist said:Except "lack of taste" has always been a part of the human condition.zymurgeist said:Honestly I think it has less to do with prepubescent giggling than post modern lack of taste. There is a place for Leisure Suit Larry, not that anyone would survive making such a game in today's society that is both puritanical and awash in pornography. There's just no sense what is appropriate or attractive any more. It's a Mylie Cyrus world.Doesn't offend me at all (heck, so many movies i the 70's showed at LEAST as much), but it really is unnecessary and I agree "amateur hour" or at least someone who doesn't know when to turn off his 14 year old self.
I'd be very surprised if it was a woman who made this.
This is the problem, the rot, in video games. Too many little boys who go unchecked. No matter their age.
Again, not an issue, I'm for games that show this if they are a type of game that is based on this type of art design (which sadly means men but tit for tat) but for a game like this I'm surprised it made it into the files.
Having male genitalia "pointing the way" to brothels in Pompeii (on the building walls and sidwalks), risque chanson in the renaissance and the appearance of decorum on the outside while behaving otherwise behind closed doors in the Victorian era are just a few examples.
Anything that's going on now has gone on before. We're just more publicly acquainted with it because of how media/the internet spreads information.
That vulgarity has always existed is no reason to accept it as commonplace. Men have been waving their junk at women unbidden for as long as there have been men and women. That doesn't make it innocent and unremarkable as so many have recently rediscovered. Some things are civilized and some aren't.
Sure! No one wants to have something thrust into their face or get groped or anything like that, against their will nor should they have to suffer through that.
But It is not a new thing and certainly not post modern or modern or anything along those lines.
We're gradually moving towards a politically correct world where even "artistic nude drawings" will be classified as explicit pornography. Down the rabbit hole we go.
It can work if the people who want that type of game play it. I know I am ready to stop playing Black Desert (and most likely Elder Scrolls Online though I only play that as single player) and just jump into this.Theocritus said:Im expecting something similar to Everquest and Vanguard but I have my doubts that kind of game can work in 2016-17
