Topic: Kongregate / Artificial Badge Inflation Issue

I hate this new initiative for more badges, because it relies on giving badges to games that, according to the old system, plain weren’t good enough for badges, according to the players themselves.
We, as gamers, rate games based on how much we enjoy them. If we really like a game, we’ll rate it highly, because that means it will get recognition. Recognition, here, means badges. Games needed a sustained 4.00 rating, which meant the games were, by definition, really good, according to the vast majority of players. Only the best games got badges, because, and this is important, we wanted to make sure that the games we were told to play, through the distribution of badges, were the best games available, and only the best.
With this new system, where Greg and the other people running Kongregate can just DECIDE which games deserve badges, our votes, our opinions as gamers, are made meaningless.
If there are fewer good games, don’t lie to us and tell us old games are suddenly better, because they aren’t. There are fewer games with badges because there are fewer good new games. And that’s okay. What isn’t okay is making the gamer not matter.

Crypts all the way. The ability to freeze a boss at the very end of level 15, or to even send him back in fear is incredible. Also, on many levels, with improved range, they can control the entire area, which is great.

really, Its pretty sad when republicans have to lie, just to get voted off of things they know they are totally wrong about. Who cares, they get money anyways.

… How are the democrats, who arent actual democrats anymore, any better? Theyll spend spend spend, but so will republicans. The difference is taxes, but we’ll just have to pay for the ever-increasing deficit for generations to come. Our only great president in 100+ yrs was Reagan.

Both would raise the deficit, neither will do anything about illegal immigration, both will increase taxes, mostly because they would have to to spend more. None of the candidates were great, even back to the primaries.

They are both terrible. I honestly don’t like either.

Really? Infernape is my only fire guy and my only fighting one too.
Why do you think I should get steelix over metagross, I thought Steelix had more weaknesses.

Steelix is weak against about 1/2 of all types, while metagross is hardly weak against anything.
Also, Infernape is all you need for fire/fighting, because it has high enough attack/sp.attack, with few/no double weaknesses.

My fav is temple. Good damage, lacks range but makes up for that with accuracy. Once it reaches level 4, both its forms are very useful is used correctly in the correct positions.

That’s true, but when range counts, its all about the Crypts.

Definitely the Crypt. When fully upgraded, they are practically unstoppable. Sending an enemy backwards, that’s so useful in late stages and waves.

Wait, what? You must be thinking of something else. I was actually thinking of a word like fun-challenging-mind-hurting-sometimes-frustrating-exhausting-rewarding.

It has to be on challenging or heroic difficulty, as if it wasn’t difficult or time-consuming enough.
