Compare this:


With this:


And this:


With this:


It's like their interpretation of "remastering" something consists adding a bunch of unneeded instruments and crappy synths. The trumpets during the chorus of the remastered version of "Luca" make me wanna die. I don't really understand why anyone thought the original soundtrack needed a remaster in the first place, it's not like it wasn't recorded with a real live orchestra.

On Before the Storm, the piano-synthesque instrument that kicks in at 0:52 sounds flat in the new version...

I think they improved the laugh scene in the Japanese version.

That is one horrifying yet hilarious laugh.

That whole remasterd OST debate reminded me of the Secret of Mana remastered OST.
They screwed that one up pretty hard too.

That i bought the terrible port of Bloodstained for the Switch.

The game looks in some areas like a PS1 game. Not even exaggerating.
It has massive slowdowns and it crashes in the middle of cutscenes.

Simply put: a complete waste of money.

David Cage, the other M. Night Shyamalan of movies.

Escvort missions, water and ice levels: Always tedious, impossible to control and frustrating.

Game companies that fuck us over, like Microsoft after the 2013 conference, E.A. in general and Bethesda after last year's conference.

First Person Shooters: They have been completely homogenized and boring decades, yet they never fucking stop.

Battle Royales: How did F.P.S.es get even worse?

Konami turning against us: It made classics like Castlevania, Contra, Jackal, Parodius, Twinbee, Ai Senshi Nicole, Metal Gear Solid, Batman and Robin for the SNES, etc. and now they are gone. I hope the new Contra will remind us of the glory days.

Games that are much worse on some systems: Batman and Robin on the SNES is one of my favorite games, but the Genesis version is one of my most hated games,

People assuming that WoW: Classic fans are addicts. Most people aren't playing 12 hours a day, peeing into bottles, and getting divorces. Stop spreading this fake nonsense.

I know about 3-4 people that played WoW.
All of them were addicted, neglecting mayor parts of their life in the process.
So much for the "fake nonesense".

But i also don't believe that every person that plays a couple of rounds WoW will show this behaviour.
It probably has something to do with the monthly fee you pay, making you think that you "lose money" if you don't play.
And a couple of other factors rooted in the game-mechanics.

I mean, I play WoW. I enjoy it, but def not addicted.

And the only beef I have with Classic fans are the ones who are snobby assholes who tell me I'm a baby for wanting to play retail instead.

Like. I already did that shit. Don't want to do it again. I like the characters I've put all that time into, and I don't want to start over. That doesn't make me lesser than you. Dicks.
