No they don’t, Sotfs is debatably more open because you have more ways to get the first branch. Most of the statue shit is optional areas, and they give you more branches to compensate. For instance, they added a statue for Ruin Sentinels, but there’s also a branch near the bonfire coming from the forest, so it only matters if you come from the port. (Which I think may have a new branch of its own) Why CAN’T you go to the sewer and Heide in Sotfs? The Heide knights don’t fight until you beat the area.

I thought the enemy placement was the main complaint for Sotfs.

Edit: I just fact checked, and in the original you actually don’t get a branch until Lost Sinner, The Black Gulch or Harvest Valley. Sotfs lets you buy a branch in the forest and go to Shaded Woods far earlier, or allows you to get Straid without backtracking if you clear both the forest and the wharf (or just the wharf, as Ruin Sentinels are optional) or just one if you don’t want to go to Shaded Woods, via the buyable and Bastille branches, and you don’t even need to skip Sentinels. There’s a lot more routing you can do, I’d say.

Did you play the original first? If you didn’t and you’re a first-time player, I can think of all the ways you could progress through the game, and the only player I can think of who’d be bothered is the type who immediately backtracks and uses it on every statue he saw, even after seeing important paths being blocked.

You don’t need to know where the branches are. These games expect you to explore the areas thoroughly, and there’s STILL multiple unmissable branches.

If you did play DS2, you already knew what the branches were, how they were limited early, and past Things Betwixt I can’t see you getting cockblocked unless you use the first branch you get on the tutorial. Which, already knowing they block major pathways too, is stupid.

There was nothing there besides an ogre (or were there two already?) and thus ladle in the original anyways, and now you at least get an Estus shard and Twinkling Titatnie. Usually when these games give you a reason to reexplore the tutorial it’s good, why is this instance bad?

I actually watch those small accounts (they tend to be short and related to games I know), it feels a bit more comfy when the guy actually reads and replies to my comment.

I think I also came upon aftermath of some personal quarrel between the account and a commenter, they were talking about how sorry they were and the guy accepted the apology. It was wholesome, and probably as memorable as other videos I waste time on watch.

So what you’re saying is, we no longer live in a fair system and it used to be fair(ish), better. That suggests it’d have been easier to live in the 80’s.

What is your point?

I get your intial point was that life is more convenient now, but you have done nothing to substantiate the claim that we wouldn’t manage in the 80’s. Only thing that comes to mind is shipping things from abroad via Internet, but that’s only really for side hobbies in my experience, I could focus on other, local things instead. Everything else I feel would just be varying degrees of “less efficient” and/or have alternatives.

This is precisely what Soldier from TF2 did, after WW2 ended

24 hrs since I put them on for sleep and keep them on for the next day

On the contrary, if they’re not too tight, they are a bit comfy for me. I heard Einstein was even proud of never wearing socks, but I think you people just have different foot vibes, I’m rather neutral about wearing them.

Even more importantly, it’s winter, it’s really fucking cold, and a blanket or two just isn’t enough, at least not when I get out of bed early the next day. Directly covering extra skin helps.

The temperatures are rather consistent here in Poland actually, I only felt it was mildly warmer for a day or so, but besides that I’ve been wearing the same clothes and feeling fine. Autumn was way worse.

3DS.

Though I didn’t have many - GBA, Wii, 3DS, and now Steam Deck. The Deck is much better in a vacuum, but the 3DS just offers an experience you couldn’t get via emulation or ports. Even if it’s just the dual screen, it looks better as seperate physical screens than what emulators do on single display devices.

With the Deck, I just got it as an alternative to buying a new gaming laptop. Years from now, I’ll be able to replace my SD with another Steam, or even non-Steam handheld PC, but once I lose my 3DS and functioning second-hand ones run out too, that experience is gone, and even 3rd party emulation machines will probably lack features.

I didn’t understand the title before the pic loaded so here it is

No, but I saw this while scrolling, so, it can still function

Dutczar,
@Dutczar@sopuli.xyz avatar

It’s my main PC gaming device since my laptop is even struggling with TF2, and occasionally Ultrakill (which I only play there because I want M+K, and I might just start plugging those into my Deck), so it has been more than 95% of my PC playtime since I got it 1,5 years ago.

Which I’m fine with since I can’t bother with a desktop, and gaming laptops are too loud/hot, both from older experience and seeing others.

Are you American or something?

I think a lot of other countries would consider consoles expensive, as well as games and other imported/regionally priced things.

Dutczar, (edited )
@Dutczar@sopuli.xyz avatar

The average earnings in European countries, however, vary significantly. I think I remember checking years ago that here in Poland, games and consoles cost 2-4x of the % of minimal/average income compared to other Germany, though you could also look at spending power. And plenty of countries have it WORSE.

I know for a fact that when I went on a trip to London, I was kind of disturbed by how expensive food is if you only compare GBP to PLN via the exchange rate.

Edit: Also, OP could just be a student with a part-time job or something. I’m not saying being American makes you rich or anything, it just means that once you buy all the essentials (food, rent) which should roughly cost “the same” in most countries, you can do more with your remaining money.

ALSO, PSA: Some companies try to do regional pricing to make things actually affordable, like Netflix subscriptions. People then use VPNs to buy them for a cheaper price (sometimes 10-20x cheaper, if they earn in USD) and the the companies have to go back and sell them at close to a 1:1 currency exchange rate (saw it happen to Dead Cells too, the devs tried but they ended up losing money). If you meet anyone like that, tell them they are assholes.

Prey, after a friend recommended it to me. Had mild nausea early but it must’ve been getting used to it, though Borderlands 3 wasn’t as bad I think. Besides that, I appreciate that there’s an official default control scheme for the Deck and in-game icons for the back buttons.

Also Binding of Isaac. This one benefits the least compared to PC, because I’m glued to my laptop or phone looking up info anyways.

…does tea count? Or sugar? Jerking off and video games are enough for me.

My only real problem now seems to be finding a relationship, so life’s great.

I also have zero interest in those drugs though. Coffee tasted bitter. Alcohol tastes bad, and when I got tipsy once I just felt mild inconvenience walking, I think. Smoking smells bad. Never saw weed with my own eyes. A friend had me try yerba mate telling me it’d give me a kick like coffee, especially if I never tried it, but I just didn’t feel anything special.

Shouldn’t russian meat wave tactics and Russians be switched? That’s where the Russians are going.

Besides maybe competitive shooters (and you can still try, and do well with practice), and games with many keyboard inputs (Terraria for me), anything you’d play on a normal PC. Not much changed in games I play since I got the Deck. And games like easier shooters (Borderlands) or mouse reliant games (flash games, in my case) still play well, so it really does seem like it’s only those two specific types I mentioned.

It’s a hell of coincidence that this is the second time I heard of this, the first being 2 days ago in a video game. Said video game is full of crackpot conspiracies though.

It also plays pretty damn well in single player. I actually enjoyed it more than in the few co-op sessions I had, and 100% including rushing NG+, which I do less often in games now.

So you just explained why it’s actually a no.

“If you have an amputated leg but offset it with a prosthetic leg, you are not disabled”

What if the magic is still not as good as a fully functioning body, for one reason or another?

Dutczar,
@Dutczar@sopuli.xyz avatar

The thing is just that this started with a Psychonauts 2 character, and I haven’t played it, so for all I know maybe it makes no difference. But I assume constant telekinesis is at least somewhat inconvenient in that world. What about someone like Toph from Avatar TLA, whose blindness is acknowledged occasionally, but most of the time functions fine?

A question might be, how do you define a sufficient amount of limitations? I’m sure there’s a point where everyone will go “yeah, you may as well be healthy”, but I assume most situations are a grey area. But I’m also neither disabled nor have experience with disabled people, so I’m probably the furthest from judging.

Also things like, how that magic carpet would be even more useful for a fully functioning person, even with a large amount of uses. Still a disadvantage on the merit of being the only option, rather than being AN option.
