>tfw was on the original thread
Writing a guide for it must have been the easiest cash ever.
Progression trees for min/max autists, basically. That shit isn't always available online. The Witcher 2 one helped me to stop restarting every couple of hours because I had fucked something up.
The same thing with gaming magazines. The information is easier to access and is faster too unless you don't have internet.
That's probably why Nintendo Power died. However I still see my friends having the latest issues of gameinformer.
I liked reading walkthroughs in magazines when I was younger for games I never played
>tfw reading an Eternal Darkness walkthrough in an old Nintendo magazine
I think failing QTEs are more infuriating than having to repeat a level, or die.
At least when you die or repeat, you're playing the game and not sitting through a fucking QTE again.
I have no words for this.
/v/ as a board turned to complete shit after The Order came out, thanks to the fuckton of shit flinging between Nintendo and Sony. I didn't want to blame The Order for it, but now I have no reason to deny it any longer.
TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SIX PAGES
>$10 to $20 for a QTE guide.
Are you fucking serious?
Are you guys realizing just now that most of the people playing this game, and most games, are going to be around 12 - 16?
You really shouldn't be playing games too much past that age. They're not for grown men.
Well yeah, of course it's gonna be fucking huge if the guide holds your hand every time you have to press a button, especially with all these fuckhuge pictures
I mean shit, I know the game is short but still
>implying console war shitposting in general isn't the main cancer killing this board
You know what I played when I was 12-16? Pic related. Same goddman thing.
I know we generally have low expectations of kids, but there's a limit.
>Not playing koosh ball with your friends after you eat lunch in the middle school courtyard before you have to go back to class
This is it, we hit the rock bottom.
I can't even get mad anymore. I'm not feeling anything. No rage, no sadness, no happiness, nothing.
You know things have gotten bad when shit like this does not surprise you in the least.
this can't be real
I refuse to believe it
>you will spend more time flipping pages than actually playing the game
The majority of games I played under the age of 17 were rated mature, and the same can be said for most teenagers playing video-games.
I'm sorry you were raised in an overly-strict christian fundamentalist background.
This isn't your ordinary casual, this is
I was bossing up niggas in WC2 at 14.
Git gud bitch ass nigga
I'm so sorry for the editors who were forced to go through this. Making a stratety guide of such a shallow game must have been a nightmare. Just because some douchebags decided "let's make one and milk the faggots".
my fucking Windwaker guide that i bought when i was 12 years old has 190 pages and covers every little secret the game has to offer
how the fuck do you squeeze in 256 pages for a game that consists of 1 hour gameplay, 1 hours QTE and 3 hours of cutscenes
5 years for that.
is it possible this gen will sink any deeper?
Here's an idea. Make a thread about video games. If all the people complaining about threads they don't like, in threads they don't like, actually want to discuss video games, this shouldn't be too hard.
Is it really like this? No fucking way.
It is actually a railpresser?
>no fake reviews yet
What the fuck is wrong with you /v/?
You have no right to complain if you buy AAA garbage.
This is the new "wait a minute, that card."
I mean the game is already holding your hand the entire way. There is no possible reason you need a guide to hold your other hand. Why the fuck don't you just pay someone to play the game for you?
Jesus Christ fuck this gay earth.
I really want to know how many of those things they have actually sold, my god if people are having trouble with qte they need a 200 page guide god help them and god help the rest of us as these twonks will be running this world one day.
>This is the new "wait a minute, that card."
THAT'S MY JOKE! I'LL KILL YOU!
Strategy guides are relics of another time, when the internet wasn't as widespread. Nowadays, I think they get by with nice art or worldbuilding or some crap; it's been a while since I last bought a guide.
She doesn't have a bf yet and feels alone.
>you will never have a qt gf with cerebral palsy
> Mfw cyberdemons errywhere in fucking Mayan Mishap.
No it is Al Capone you dickwad.
If you faggots would even read the guide you'd see the sequence instead just pressing buttons it requires using the right stick to move the reticle over certain parts before the QTE response appears.
It's ok by comparison.
Before there were guides for 'how to pass a QTE' it was a joke. Now it seems perfectly reasonable and sensible by comparison.
The points you have to move the cursor to are highlighted during the sequence. How much do you want to bet they don't walk the player through a tutorial for that shit at the start of the game?
I'm mad. I'm actually fucking mad. please tell me this is a joke. please tell me it'll be alright. please tell me there's hope for the future. please tell me this is just a bad era of gaming. please find the hero
What is this world coming to
>233+ pages for a literal QTE corridor shooter
>2 hours of gameplay
>This is the game Sonyponies and NeoGAF are auto-fellating themselves over
>This shit will still sell because the PS4 has no games and Sonyponies are incredible plebs
THE SIGNS OF A FALLING INDUSTRY ARE UPON US.
Wait until we see how well the guide sells. If it sells well, that's a sign of a flourishing industry.
I mean, the game and the guide are definitely a sign of an industry that doesn't give half a shit about the hobby, but so far the industry is doing just fine as far as I can tell.
This is a custom-made Order 1886 controller
>it's not even antiqued
>a tree or 5 died making this guide book
They have put out lots of garbage in the last few years and just like Western casuals they have eaten it up. If you don't see the truth in this you are truly a weeaboo.
Which is perfectly alright.
I don't know man, it looks like they were scraping the bottom of the barrel coming up with shit to put in. Look at how spaced out the images are: they probably had to hit a certain number of pages. That looks like the strategy guide equivalent of increasing the font size of your punctuation marks back when you wrote essays in school.
MFW I BOUGHT THE ORDER
MFW THERE IS NOTHING /v/ CAN DO ABOUT IT
MFW I RELISH IN THE GLORY THAT IS THE ORDER: 1886
I don't see the problem. Every guide that has ever been written explains things that anyone should be able to do on their own, this isn't something new or unique here. Comes off more as everyone wanting to hate anything associated with this game and piling on at every opportunity.
That's next fucking level holy shit.
I am honestly glad to have lived to see this day.
>yfw reading the guide will take you longer than actually playing the game
The Majora's Mask 3D Prima Guide is 300+ pages and comes with a code with a downloadable version
and it looks gorgeous, the symbols on the cover are embed and the side pages are gold.
it takes you 5 hours to read a guide? are you like 3 years old?
Japs make a fuckload of terrible games too. The problem is that no matter how bad a japanese game is, there will always be a group of shit eating weaboos to praise it.
Neptunia is the perfect example of this. Same thing goes for all those shit weeb games on steam that people buy simply because "hurr its animey"
moving your hips that slow. toppest of keks.
