In the first seasons of L&O: SVU they just openly talk about using commitment to keep offenders locked up indefinitely after doing their time or putting people without evidence. In 1995 people already understood it to be a subversion of due process. No liberalist pretext of compassion either, just abject contempt for the concepts of rehabilitation and burden of proof. American fascism manifest championing its favorite tools.

Which console is better if im looking into getting a gaming console?
22 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.

Switch, but if you have to get one then I guess Xbox because it has better backwards compatibility and GamePass is pretty nice.

 No.26901

PC is the way to go, especially if you were considering Xbox vs PS5 either …
>Build or buy a new one yourself for gaming
This will be perhaps the most costly, but will give you the most sustaining power over time and of course. Either build one yourself ,buy a reasonable pre-built, or get someone else to buy/build one for you. Using discounted, used, or other high quality parts on sale can help get the best value
>Upgrade an existing one for gaming
Depending on how old and what form (ie if its a laptop things will be harder), you may be able to simply add a handful of components, notably new GPU, RAM, and SSD and make your computer way more gaming capable. This may or may not be worth it compared to a new core build, but its worth a shot
>Steam Deck + Deck Dock
If you want something "easy to use" console like, inexpensive, but NOT locked down, look into a Steam Deck. A solid value, well supported, and you're supporting Linux, openness, and generally not being a shit.

>openness
This word is a psyop, what is important is not supporting this vague notion of "openness" but rather combatting DRM and supporting libre and open-source software. Windows is technically more "open" (as in "less locked down") than consoles but it's still a compromise.

 No.32687

>>26769
Depends, but I will recomend buying second-hand. It's much more cheap and they are generally in good condition cause consoles are just sitting there. For that reason, a good second-hand Switch is harder to find.

great mechanics, entertaining storyline, fun gameplay and above all titties. What more can one want out of a Video game? God of War PS2 edition was peak of gaming.


 No.32584[Reply]

If only Dreamcast didn't die prematurely, it could have been better.

There's still hope that Switch will normalize gyro but I do wonder what could have been if KB+M on consoles was the norm. Regenerating health, ADS and cover shooters might have been way less ubiquitous, the aim assist would have almost disappeared, and many PC FPSs would have gotten ports and remasters on consoles (and vice versa). At least we can experience what could have been through emulation but ofc the change in controls demands the change in game design and core gameplay mechanics.

Oh, btw, I like Metroid Prime despite its tanky controls. But if I had to choose between the original hardware and Trilogy/PrimeHack/Remastered I'd choose Trilogy/PrimeHack/Remastered. I'd say that Prime's controls at least don't give me mental turmoil, good job, Nintendo.

There is barely any competition between consoles, switch occupies it’s own sphere and is going down in popularity, while xbox is only really popular in america and microsoft seem to be willing to just kill off xbox if it will help them to sell more gamepass subs.

Don't have a favorite but some performances that stood out were Sir Patrick Stewart as Uriel Septim in Oblivion, Charlie Adler as Harold in Fallout 3 and Matthew Perry as Benny in New Vegas
Some games with good voice acting in general that come to mind are AoM, KOTOR, Fable 1 and GTA4 but I couldnt name names
then again, this is looking more and more like a list of my favorite games ever so maybe this is just nostalgia talking

> Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 introduces the four playable vampire clans
This is your reminder that a complete, playable and finished version of Bloodlines 2 exists with all clans playable, and Paradox threw it out because of insane corporate politics and had a new developer start over from scratch. Bloodlines 2 was in a playable state start to end years ago when Paradox had some corporate restructuring, moved all the assets to a new company and had them start over. Paradox burned a complete video game because of decisions made behind closed doors by people who have never touched a video game in their life.

We're not far off from the point where the only category of developer making games that aren't slop are either solo developers or tight-knit friend groups, who have sources of income independent of their gamedevving.

probably because they rounded out her features and gave her a generic annoying voice, she also looks less like a sailor and more like a school girl.

Yeah Strive looks like one of those bad western attempts at emulating Japanese aesthetics. It's sad because Guilty Gear had such a distinct style. I don't even really like how the Xrd series games look tbh.

 No.32537

>>32520
I for one am glad that Xrd exists, ArcSys has shown that you can make cel-shaded games look closer to real 2D animation. Before the character movement was too smooth and the shading looked off (especially noticeable in Transformers Devastation). JSR got around this by having fewer polygons in general and a 30 FPS lock.

It depends on what you're planning to do with it.
If you want small games you can already play them on a psvita or 3ds with a better comfortability.
If you want some better games handheld surely its the way to go, but do you want to play stuff like metro handheld?

The steamdeck is already outdated and doesnt run new games, take that into consideration.

So if you want to play something like alan wake 2 than tough luck.
I think the steamdeck is really only worth it if you want to play some ps3 or gamecube games while riding a train, or you want to escape family christmas and shit like this
