Weekly update, what has Michael been working on?

As some of you might know, I have been building the code for Mukyou.com for the last 2 weeks(kinda why you have not seen many posts/videos by me) and I am happy to say the initial coding is now in the bag, and its time for the most time consuming part, the data entry. This is a massive project to say the least for the initial start. Getting profiles on Reviewers as well as the 500+ current gen games that need to be covered is mind numbing, and hard to do with an active work load, especially with the holidays at hand.

On the subject of Difficulty

feat

Keep in mind, this is my opinion and my perception. I’m not going to Sarkeesian my way through this and claim this is the one great truth. People have been talking about Easy vs. Hard. I’m glad this discussion has started, because I have a bit of a problem with hard games. I tend not to like them. I get frustrated, lose confidence, and ultimately dump the game without experiencing the full content.

Katsuhiro Harada responds to fan ‘concerns’

lucky chloe

After the reveal of Tekken 7’s new character “Lucky Chloe”, fans responded remarkably negatively. Tekken, their warbling claims, is far to serious to have a “furry Vocaloid idol”, and that such “absolute trash” demeans the decorum of the series’ fighting pandas and muscular men. The series’ director responded to fan’s concerns, saying “Calm down and don’t worry.

Is this HEV Hoodie me?

hev hoodie

A lot of times the “geek” apparel can be a bit much from the Dragon Ball Z button down shirts to the shirts/jackets that are just plastered with Mario characters. I am more of a subtle design type of person. I love hoodies and one of my favorites is a Dead Space one. It looks as if it is a crewmen hoodie and has this nice, big Ishimura logo on the back. No one really gets it but I love it. Then comes the HEV hoodie.

What is “Discussion”?

1

It seems to be something of a trend around Anita Sarkeesian. People can seem civilized and intelligent, but as soon as the Sark appears, everyone loses a little bit of their minds.

I am a strong proponent of logic and reason. I don’t want to rely on emotions, and I consider ad hominems and logical fallacies to be insults to humanity. Discussion and debate are some of the most valuable tools at our disposal and I can’t stand people that try to tear it down.

Voice of PaRappa threatens death on fan after he steals $100 from him in 2 year long escapade

title

(Artwork by The Wang, 2003)

This has been brewing for over a year now, but it seems that John Simpson III A.K.A. Dred Foxx, Voice actor of PaRappa the Rapper, is not as friendly as his video game counterpart. It all started when Cameron Perry, a diehard PaRappa fan and animator, started work on an animation project, right before the Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale release, and sought the voice of the official PaRappa, Dred Foxx, to voice the lines needed for the animation.

Crowd Funding or Bad Investments?

1

It seems these days that Kickstarter may have become something to be wary of. Investing in a potential game may have become the prime example of exercising caution, as Elite Dangerous has just demonstrated most recently. Fans of the popular series were excited to see the game reach its Kickstarter goal and finally get the game that many of them and David Braben wanted, but with a few weeks to go before release, the joy was lost for many. Braben announced that the offline DRM free mode was not possible and instead would require an online connection to play single player, breaking one of the promises on the Kickstarter page and angering the fans. Many of the fans have demanded refunds as they are no longer interested in the game, Braben has stated that refunds will be given but on a case by case basis after initially stating no refunds would be given to those who had played the alpha or beta forms. This has been the topic of many angry online debates as backers feel they have been lied to because the offline mode was one of the promises of the project, those observing were reminded of previous occasions were backers of a project were left feeling unimpressed.

Video Games: Natural Evolution

Natrualevolution

You know, I get it. I get the claims that video games aren’t inclusive. That they lack minority heroes, or heroes of colour, or things like that. I understand why that is a concern, and that people want to see improvement in it. But you know what, I disagree, vehemently, with the notion that the time for change is now and only now and that it must be forced upon the world.
