Topic: Kongregate / Oh God...Papa's Cupcakeria

That’s… a bit harsh. But to a lesser extent, I agree that we need to stop them flooding.

How in the world is 4 games per year flooding

And out of the 4, at least one is always a platformer, not a time management game

Also,

These games are not for the people dedicated to Flash gaming such as the people in Kongregate, ArmorGames, and Newgrounds to a lesser extent; it is for casual, ordinary people

Who are you to say what all of kongregate enjoys? To be honest, considering its pretty high rating and the amount of plays it gets, I’d say these games are exactly FOR the people in Kongregate

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why are breasts considered "private" parts?

Oh hai guise: look at me; I’m breast-feeding with my bare breasts; I’m so special. Grow the fuck up.

I sincerely doubt they’re worried about what other people think of them while they’re trying to feed their child, and I don’t think they’re trying to make a point by feeding without covering up.

Although what you said was a good reason to post this video.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Gun Issues

Oh, don’t forget the knives just yet. http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2013/03/25/multiple-people-stabbed-at-east-liberty-target/

I mean, doesn’t that link kind of prove the point that knives can do less damage on a rampage? I mean, literally no one died, and they subdued the guy without shooting or killing him.

I don’t think that really helped your argument that even without guns, we would be as equally unsafe

Topic: Kongregate / Best of 2012 Quest!

Oh, FYI, nobody voted for Musaic Box or ISHST because they thought the games were good. They voted for them because they already have the badges.

or just plain make it look terrible, so nobody will actually be bothered with playing the game except for A) the people that go in and five-star everything just to get the points for rating it, and B) the people that go in and five-star everything because they’re impressed by anything that even remotely resembles a game.

Haha how in the world could you possibly know these things, your whole post seems kind of insane

Topic: Kongregate / Best of 2012 Quest!

Musaic Box. A free demo of a paid game? Did I see it read “XXXXX ONLINE PLAYING XXXXX FREE GAMES”?

Since that one took longer to beat than a couple games on the list, and I had more fun with that one than at least half of the games on the list, I didn’t really mind that it was a demo.

Plus, I wasn’t even particularly aware that is was a demo when I played it, considering it felt like a full game

Topic: Kongregate / papas hotdogeria is supposed to come out next week

While I normally enjoy these games a fair amount, I just thought this one was lazy. The toppings are unbelievably easy to put on, considering it’s a hot dog, and the pop section is just waiting. I actually completely understand if people hate this one
I did, however, like the update where it rewarded you for matching furniture

Well according to my profile, I earned one on Sept. 22 2012

So yeah, that’s way after gamestop bought the company

Still prefer the list of recently played games on the front page, but I appreciate the update

Topic: General Gaming / Dead Island ♥

Well, the reason I didn’t like it a lot was that the story wasn’t great, the controls were subpar, and the town was seriously SO boring. Why would they make it so that you had to move from a vast tropical beach, where everything was so bright and vibrant, to just this boring, drab town setting.

I enjoyed making the weapons, though, and leveling up is always fun

Topic: Kongregate / New Split Test: Activity feeds *we're back!*

Homepage update is pretty awful

Commmunity update’s alright, I guess

I honestly don’t have any suggestions to make it better, there’s not really anything to say about it. It’s a pretty pointless thing that is now taking up the space of something that was much more useful

Topic: Kongregate / New Profile rolling out to everybody

The About Me Section

It does seem everyone, including me, hates the new About Me, and I’m surprised and disappointed that they didn’t change even that after doing the split test

Topic: General Gaming / Make a real hunger games game please

Since my favorite parts are before the arena, I just don’t think I’d enjoy a game entirely focused there.

Plus, there’d really only be about 15 enemies in the whole game, which would be weird

Topic: General Gaming / Make a real hunger games game please

Was a pretty good book, but making a game about it would be the stupidest thing ever. The layout of the book would just not work with a game

Topic: Serious Discussion / Let's talk about obama here.

Your posts aren’t particularly trolling, jhco. The OP is trolling because he’s specifically trying to get a negative response out of people by saying goofy things like he’s a Russian agent.

The phrase “Out of the dark and into the light” isn’t strictly a bible quote, it’s just a simple way to put things. And plus, even if she thinks he’s Jesus Christ, what does it matter? She’s married to him, of course she’s going to speak highly of him

I’m not exactly sure what your point is about Michelle saying that

Topic: General Gaming / Ratchet & Clank HD Collection

The other “Collection” games were all 40 dollars when they came out, so I’m assuming that this is going to be the same

Topic: General Gaming / Ratchet & Clank HD Collection

There’s a rumor that the 4th game in the series is going to be included in the American copies of the game.

The creator of the game said that American consumers are going to get a bonus for some reason, and I guess it’s assumed that it’ll be the 4th game

Topic: Kongregate / Fairway Solitaire has a dumb hard badge

I especially find it absurd that nowadays whatever excuse is valid not to give a challenging badge to any game.

I’ll agree with you there that there are significantly less impossible badges nowadays. Although I personally find SCGMD4 and Focus to be very very hard, so maybe I’m the type of person they’re catering to.

I suppose he means that in the past badges weren’t intended just as a way to preserve the game and the developer or to give visibility to games that are based on gaming addiction, but to give an actual challenge to the player.

Personally, while I may have had a tougher and more satisfying time getting the badges when I started here 3 years ago, I have a more fun time getting the badges now, considering they are overall easier to get and I don’t have a lot of time to get them. I can understand that a player who likes a challenge more than me would be disappointed with the badges recently. My impression of what Draco said was more along the lines of them “selling out” or something like that. Kongregate has continued to give the highest rated games badges, they’ve just become easier over time

Topic: Kongregate / Fairway Solitaire has a dumb hard badge

I miss the days when badges meant something.

I’m not exactly sure why you think badges mean any less now than they did 4 years ago, they still have the same exact point, which is to get points to level up. That’s it basically

Topic: General Gaming / Why I Hate FFXIII

I finished XIII-2, and it was alright, I guess? It’s hard to believe but I found it even easier than XIII. The characters were awful, and the story was incomprehensible but the combat was still kind of fun. I didn’t feel the need to change paradigms as much as I did in XIII which caused most battles to be simply pressing the A button.

Oh yeah, and I hated how you played as the same two characters the entire game, but the whole monster training thing gave a little variety

Topic: General Gaming / ME2-ME3 Saved data on 360 question

Yeah, ME3 lets you transfer your character from the second game.

It makes sense that the save file that has a completed game would have more KBs, but you can always keep them all and just wait for the 3rd game to come out. It’ll basically tell you when you get to the import character menu. At least, that’s what happened in the the 2nd game

I would not insist that religious hospitals go against their beliefs to supply birth control and abortions

I don’t know why you keep saying that link you brought up has anything to do with abortions, it’s about contraceptives

They don’t have foreign currency exchanges in your country? Weird.

Haha for some reason I didn’t even think of currency exchange places.

Topic: General Gaming / Playstation 3 Giveaway (and Darkness II)!

If for some reason you think this may apply to you, then maybe, assuming you win, you’ll get cash (USD) in place of the actual product.

My point was more that they made it sound as if you will get USD even if you’re not a resident of the United States, which would be basically useless
