Pixel art is shit.

It really depends... There is more than enough crap released using it as a cheap means of artwork to give it a bad name... But there'a also some games that make amazing use if it.

A quick example would be Dead Cells. I honestly think pixel art helps set the mood of the game.

KoF's background would like to have a word with you

 

Spoiler


Let's not forget Paul Robertson's pixel art that was used for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game.

Pixel art is amazing when used right, it's a craft that takes time and long hours.

Pixel art isn't "shit" but it's overly used. Games like Shovel Knight, Fez, and Hyper light drifter I thought had good pixel art

I love how multiple internet gaming communities are worried about a sudden influx of undesirables, as if we are all incapable of being members of more than one website.

I never joined GAF. Something about having to use a "real" email annoyed me. I came here after VGTalk and the Gamers Cartel died. I think at one point there was beef between Nam, the owner if VGTalk and Cheapy but i dont remember the details.

I went there a couple times to read some stuff I was linked, but I didn't like the atmosphere.

Oh no.  What are GAF'ers going to do, without their ability to make a bunch of drive-by posts while not actually reading anything?

I didn’t know about all this, so I did a google.

“In 2004, CheapAssGamer.com competed with another site called VGTalk.com. Their website also featured video game deals and drew about the same amount of visitors. Then one day someone wrote a letter to the editor to EGM (Electronic Gaming Monthly) magazine and mentioned CAG as one of the websites he visited. His mention pushed CAG ahead of VGTalk permanently, which the owner did not appreciate.

The owner of VGTalk then began purchasing domains like “Cheap Ass Books” and “Cheap Ass Games”. Before his domain purchases, CAG held a logo creation contest and picked a “fist full of cash” as the winner. Out of clear jealousy, he stole the logo from the CAG website and used it on all of the “Cheap Ass” domains he purchased. Once the community at VGTalk noticed all the domains he owned, they stopped visiting.”

I've been here forever and don't post anywhere else. Hopefully those dickbags really do end up at gamefaqs, where they can act superior to kids who just bought games across thousands of message boards and Q&As.

I don't even have a "real" email anymore. I switched from Comcast to Verizon, and Verizon shut down their email services for FIOS so they expect you to get a free gmail account. Meanwhile Neogaf wants you to use an ISP email address, or maybe a student one. My neogaf account is stuck using my old expired comcast account, but it's too much of hassle to get it changed. Everyone uses gmail these days, even ISPs don't want to give you a "real" email address anymore, so I don't know wtf neogaf is doing using that antiquated system.

 

Also, I've been here since 2005 and I've never heard of VGtalk.. lol..

I always used to think that it was some sort of elitist method to require a non free mail account to register there. If that wasn't the  reason, I can't think of any other motive.

Yeah, my desire to buy or play Battlefront II has somewhat tapered off. I like Star Wars but I wouldn't say I'm a Star Wars geek or extremist. Loot box progression is getting a little out of control and I've almost reached my fill with plenty of other games doing the same thing. I waited on Battlefront, so I can wait on Battlefront II.

God, there was once some "Post here for a game" thing at NeoGaf and so I went to register.  First was the asinine "real" email address nonsense so I had to eventually apply under my wife's Comcast address (since the account is in her name).  Then, after all that it was "we'll get around to manually reviewing your application in the next seven days".  Seriously?  Fuck that shit, this ain't no country club and your forums aren't remotely that interesting.

I saw Fry's (with daily coupon), Best Buy (sale price), and Amazon (sale price) have a Turtle Beach Stream Mic for around $48-50. 

 

Anyone got one of these? Any thoughts? 

 

How does that compete to other mics like the Yeti Blackout and any other high-end mics?

I didn't get that either about neogaf. Why couldn't they manually approve within an hour/or a day? What were their Admins & Mods doing in that time for you to have to wait 7 days for? I heard years back it took about 6 months or a year just to get approved like wtfff???

Getting a new laptop (primarily for work) but trying to decide if I just want some cheap-o thing for Word and casual games or a lower end gaming machine like this if I want to fork out another $500.  Anyone have some first hand experience/bought something similar or in this range?

 

Desktop-wise I'm waiting for the next gen of Nvidia cards at which time I'll get an entirely new system.  Also since when did Microsoft start scamming people with this Office 365 crap?
