sure, but it's become typical to say "b-but it was better before" when in fact like family guy it wasn't, it's just nostalgia goggles all around
#17656 - thepenname (01/13/2014) [-]
I think there have been some episodes in recent memory that I genuinely thought were bleh, but a lot still impress me with the level of production that goes into them. For instance, Family Guy has arguably the best scoring of any animated show on television today. I also still enjoy the Brian and Stewie episodes. I think where they lose me is when they take cheapshots at celebrities or trends. It's one of the drawbacks of their ADHD humor whereby randomly inserting a quip into a cut-away or a random present-time joke that their "societal criticism" starts to look cheap and presumptous. Whereas other shows like South Park usually takes just a few subjects and critique them by weaving them into an episode as a set of motifs, Family Guy's often come from out of nowhere, thus feeling arrogant and underbaked. Also, both Family Guy and American Dad constantly retread old territory, especially in dealing with the main cast's familial conflicts. Oh, Stan's not taking Francine seriously again? Surprise, surprise. What, Meg's in another awkward situation at school? How inventive. Sometimes there are sparks of creativity in familial conflicts, like the episode where they finally addressed the family's abuse of Meg. Good shit, although I felt myself ironically impressed with how it accommodated the show's own discontinuity. Meg's resolution is ultimately that maybe the family needs her as a punching bag. It's a new layer for her character, but it persists passively for those perennial viewers who'll remember this new characterization. For the writers, it was a way to restore normalcy while giving Meg the impression of new depth, without ever having to revisit it again. Clever, but also a bit depressing.

All in all, I still think Family Guy's a solid show, but there are times where I wish they'd branch out a bit more with their subject matter and treat some subjects not with more sensitivity, but with enough respect to actually develop a critique.

I have not heard of Rebirth. What I'm looking forward to is Super Broforce. Metal Slug is one of my favorite arcade games and this has a lot of elements inspired by the series. It also has voxels. Yay voxels.

I mean, if we could argue our way to a better minimum wage I don't see the harm. The only downside would be if we managed to get too high of a minimum wage instated, which would make companies cut down the number of employees and maybe invest in alternatives to employees altogether.

I was wondering about the same thing for Destiny. Except Destiny is a full-on FPS, and I generally do terribly with those when using controllers unless there's aim assist on a Battlefield 4 level. Seriously, shit's handy.
If it's confirmed for PC, what would you do? Is it worth getting it on something that probably can't handle it well just because the controls will be manageable?
#801534 - thepenname (01/13/2014) [-]
I'm not a big shooter fan in general (especially not competitive multiplayer; bit of co-op in Borderlands is coo' though), so I've never struggled with the whole "mouse versus controller" debate. I understand mouse is supposed to be better, but if you're on a console at least you're on an even playing field. It's not like controllers are unmanageable either. I get mouse is better, but I've never used a controller in an FPS and thought, "OH SHIT, THIS IS TERRIBLE, I CAN'T MANAGE TO DO ANYTHING!" Still works fine. If you're crazy struggling with it, it just might take some practice.

In any case, PC Gamer reported back in November that as of then, Bungie had no plans for a PC port because it'd spread the developer "too thin": www.pcgamer.com/2013/11/05/destiny-for-pc-would-spread-bungie-too-thin-according-to-bungie/

So yeah, no choice unless you just wanna sit around and pray.

I never understand the line of logic of persons such as yourself. There's always the occasional person who will repeat the same comment repeatedly across statuses, but you decide to pick the most offensive comment possible for each content and see what results you get. You may claim not to be a troll, but your commenting up to this point is somewhat contrary.

So honestly and non agressively i'd like to ask:

Sup broski? how's things?
