He writes reviews about games. Everyone likes what they like. His job title about reviewing games is based on his personal opinion of whether or not he likes the game he is reviewing.

While I understand some gaming proficiency being necessary to some people it's not essential to ones enjoyment of said game. I love games but so do my nephews and all kinds of other people who aren't in our demographic of gaming proficiency. I'm not good at first person shooters but I'll whoop most people's a$$es in Mortal Kombat 9 but I'm still not the best or worst at MK9 or COD.

What those people said in the volume that they said it was just typical internet nerd bullying. These are the types of guys I used to protect in school and now here they are being bullies themselves.

Don't get me wrong that video wasn't easy to sit through but the comments underneath? Screw those douchebags. I can't condone that type of behavior no matter what and it's just ..... A sign of the times I guess. This is only getting worse unfortunately. It's hard to remain positive when even videos about things like meditation and ASMR have all kinds of weird hateful comments. Like I said in an earlier comment this is not just video gamers that are a$$holes on the Internet it's pretty much everywhere. I wanna say it's the political climate but it's not just that either.

Anyways I didn't see the guys response video maybe I should see what kind of snotty things he said in retort before I continue to condemn all those angry trolls for what they commented.

After watching that guy dying on Cuphead for 26 or so minutes I think I need that game myself actually.

I've had copies of witcher and uncharted games that I've never even played because I hadn't gotten to them yet. I could however see myself playing Cuphead immediately after downloading it though. That game is like artwork the music and the static like a record playing, is all really cool.

I hope that game is as hard as that guy made it seem though I would like to be able play it over many different days and still have new levels to playthrough 😉

I feel bad for that guy though, he didn't deserve all that snotty criticism ..... No one does.

Lol of course I do my sister said I got ripped off. But I love Beauty and the Beast and it was a price you had it listed for in the classifieds. I wasn't going to ask you to lower it when we never even talked before.

I never even looked up the going price on it until my sister told me that. But really who cares I saw that price and I was the one who contacted you. So it's on me that I wanted it before someone else bought it lol. Plus helping out fellow gametz users in need of cash is what we all should try to be doing if it's possible and the other person is in need of it.

I really only regretted the trade after my sister said that. She literally made me feel like an idiot. That was the only reason I ever thought it wasn't a good deal. But it's fine with me now. No worries 😊

Is this about that guy we were talking about in pms the other day or is this just another greedy random internet "salesperson"?

I can easily walk away from any deal with anyone but I usually just straight out ask people how much do you really want? And I usually get decent prices. I haven't had anyone totally try to price gouge me like you're describing here in like the last year and a half of full time trading on here.

It's kind of always been like this, whatevers out now and isn't selling is going in a bargain bin like it was a manufacturing defect.

People at game stores will literally warn you "are you sure you want this?" And I'm like are you sure you want my money?

And yes some of this stuff MIGHT be worth money but game manufacturers have caught on to the retro market. They are rereleasing EVERYTHING that they just sold you a lot of on the last console you just owned before this one so they don't lose all that cash on their IPs in future land. There was a copy of Dead Island collection in that online cheapie bin lol. But we keep buying it until they cant sell it to us anymore.

Welcome to the internet friend, some people literally have nothing better to do than what was witnessed in that dog piling of a comment section.

I say if he's having fun go for it. I cannot tell you how many times I still make the same mistakes in platformers like Super MeatBoy, Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden and other games like Kalimba on Xbox One. But it IS a learning process.

People on the Internet are just trolls usually. It has nothing to do with gamers. I have try hard not to talk trash to people because the negativity literally makes me wanna beat the mother fudge out of the guys talking all that crap. I have manic depression which can be completely debilitating at times and yet I treat my fellow humans as good as I can within reason. These guys (and some girls) for whatever reason can only get their kicks from hating other people and feeling somehow superior to someone else. It's literally sickening to me.

Idk maybe it's a normal human trait I just never developed and I'm missing out somehow. But even though some of what these people said was accurate and/or funny dare I say, it's still steeped in some coward sheep mentality that I will never truly understand.

Ugh ..... People just suck y'all 😞

Well it is kinda repulsive that these nerds keep eye boning each other over gaming abilities, but they're also getting paid to get and keep people interested. As gross as it is if they weren't enthusiastic about whatever crap or game tournaments etc they happened to be peddling they would just find some hot girl who could fake it and look better doing it.

I say whatever keeps good games relevant and rolling out of factories is a good thing and almost forgivable considering our current youths tiny fickle attention spans.

Well to be honest I probably wouldn't have felt the "need" for current gen either other than Mortal Kombat X.

The only reason I would need a PS4 is for the virtual reality games. I've wanted some sort of virtual reality ever since they were first talking about it over 20 years ago. I have an Xbox One and it's a great system but so is every other system I have ..... well maybe.

I still gotta get injustice 2 for Xbox One if anybody is trading it. Not looking to break the bank to buy it otherwise I'd just go to Target or Amazon. But I would wanna trade for it for sure.

Were you trying to pass it without any advice or walkthroughs? I keep hearing that's the only way to succeed, I'm not a god gamer either, but I did remember all the stuff I had to look up as a kid. As it turns out there are way easier (or cheaper idk) ways to beat most of Castlevania.

Some of which I was kinda figuring out before I saw a speed run to death before I was like nope I'm not gonna watch the last stage. I had already beaten it again but there are a few simple things to kinda cheat your way through. Not really but it saves almost no time from what I had already tried. It is easier though once you know how. The ease he killed bosses though, I couldn't replicate that if I tried lol. It was better than spin slash easy against the grim reaper. It made me want to forget I had ever seen it so it wouldn't remind me how awful I am at Castlevania.

You got rid of whomp em? I saw a cart only copy near my house for 55 bucks. Not something I'm getting anytime soon.

As you know I have Lolo 2 but idk if I would trade it for those books. I would need to get some cash together to even mail it lol. I might trade Lolo 1 also cart only but I'd probably have to add some random cart(s).

But you've done me solids before so maybe we can work something out. What is the Zelda book like sir? Are there lots of full color screenshots? Like throughout the whole book?

Lol I don't need a few years. I just need to get good in a few days.

What's your guys' quickest times anyways? Just out of curiosity not being all competitive, just kinda trying to gauge whether or not it's even worth it. I can't record it anyways or even upload it so I guess it doesn't matter but it is kinda fun trying.

Not for me ..... I keep forgetting stuff.

Even when I make mistakes on 6-1 through 6-3 I can just suicide to start over and keep flying through 😞

What was Dugongues time on Ninja Gaiden again? I might tell Lunar my secrets for 6-1 - 6-3 so he can bump him off lol.

If I wasn't so sloppy and in such a rush I could have gotten through those 3 sub stages without taking a hit maybe.

Also @sharif what's the world record on the speedrun site?

Okay goshdarnit @sharif or whomever I just started ninja Gaiden 1 at 12:22pm and beat the final boss at 1:04pm both today both my time I skipped all the cut scenes though. If you're doing a speed run do you need to play out all the cut scenes within the speedrun while you're recording it or what?

(And no I didn't record it) (and of course I used spin slash and started back at 6-1 2 extra times)

I have no way to properly record a speed run but I'm sure I can do better time. Unless I need to be recording the cut scenes the final ending scene just ended at 1:10 my time.

My first dreamcast wasn't brand new I don't think but it may have been and it sure as hell wasn't day one. But it's one of the only systems I went to buy at gamedude lol, I also bought that 1 dollar n64 there too this year.

I think I may have bought my second dreamcast there too.

But it is one of the most fun systems I've had. I've been meaning to set it up again soon to play some Mortal Kombat Gold or Railroad Tycoon, if I still had a keyboard I'd be playing Typing of the Dead, probably one of the coolest weirdest games nobody really seems to care about.

Well I usually only actually play one system at a time so whatever I'm playing that day is what I'm playing the most and every other of my 20 to 40 other systems are tied for the least played. I haven't turned on the jaguar maybe in the longest mostly because the controls are broken. What's the point if I can't actually play games?

Idk what system I couldn't get rid of ..... Maybe Xbox 360 but I'm attached to all of them really. I do have multiples of several systems though that I was getting to pass on to friends. So technically any extra system is not necessary. I guess out of the systems I have that I could get rid of easiest would be my broken 3do since I know I can't fix it. The n64 that I bought for a dollar as-is however I'm slowly gathering all the missing components so I might be able to salvage it and play some full screen Diddy Kong racing 😍

I know some of them are expensive like Towers 2 but it was released after the jaguar wasn't being supported anyways. So they didn't make a ton of copies. And yes some of the jag cd games are pretty expensive but like most systems there's no point in collecting every game anyways. The games will just sit there. Especially if they aren't as good as other games.

Let me know if you change your mind sir.

And if you still decide to get rid of it I'll be interested for sure. Both of my controllers were damaged in storage so I figure it would be just as cheap to get a whole nother jaguar anyways.

Well if you want I could send you a couple of games to borrow so you don't have get rid of it without at least trying some of the unique titles (not club drive lol I didn't like that one either but one day I will try to play it again).

I could let you borrow Ultra Vortek and AVP since those two games versions are only on jaguar. I might have iron soldier also. Let me know.
