This is true.
you can only get that through mods or getting to the highest levels possible.

This is not, you can just take 2B's skirt off with the dress module.

Of course, this is all academic since the idea that a game can't be good if the main character is sexualised is extremely silly. It's a very good game and Yoko Taro likes looking at lady bum. These are both true facts.

I read somewhere that her ass was rendered with over 300k polygons.

Also, first game I've ever played in French, I gave up on those bad French accents after 1 cutscene and just put the whole damn game in it.

Was trying to finish it in one marathon playthrough, but sleepy time overruled me on that.

And done. Pretty good. Don't see it having a lot of replay value though.

Well, I gave Nier a chance. I thought I might be wrong about it at first. On account of that really cool bit where you kill a giant robot with its own severed arm.

But my God, this game has a whole different problem than what I originally thought: It's pretentious as fuck. One of those things that really thinks it's so deep and such. Like if Evangelion was a game. 2B has all the personality of a wooden plank, that little sidekick is grating, the background music is insufferable, and then there was the zenith of the dumbness: When a bunch of robots gave birth to a moaning Ken doll I had to fight.

This game is not for me. Probably would have preferred if it was just a gratuitous ass-fest like I originally thought...

I was wondering about this. AC: V will not have naval battles. Actually looked into the real history of Viking ships just a few days ago, those things were basically exclusively designed to troop transports. For the first time in an Assassin's Creed game, we'll be able to sail just for the thrill of sailing, without fear of cannonballs or arrow volleys.

I know they did this for accuracy reasons which makes me wonder what other features have they "removed" for similar reasons too.

The Naval battles were some of my favourite parts of both Black Flag and Oddessy tbh. I guess I just have a thing for that kind of gameplay. Shame to see them go.

Not true. There's plenty of things I wanted to hate but wound up liking. The live action Speed Racer, Star Trek, My Little Pony, sushi, Peyton Manning quarterbacking the Broncos, League of Legends, etc.

I grabbed this Yakuza game expecting some gritty crime story.

The 20 minutes I spent singing karaoke as this guy kind of dispelled that illusion.

Well, I decided to splurge a bit and buy some of the DLC for Stellaris because they had a sale on them for the anniversary (except for Federations, the bastards). I'm excited to play the game with the new stuff but I know I'm just going to be playing the same old United Nations of Earth but that's okay, I like consistency I guess.

This has always been a fear of mine. Sure no one is gonna pay to play this piece of crap. But some bigger company out there will see this as an easy way gouge more money from its players. And suddenly the entire online landscape is pay to play like this.

So Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 are getting a remake

I'm actually kinda hype. I was just thinking about Pro Skater 2 recently, and how much fun I had with it back in the day, but how ass it looks now.

Its by the same people who made the Crash Bandicoot remakes, so it'll likely be done in a way that's loyal to the original game.
