            Oh yeah, that's true. In addition to that, there's also the guy who reposts the international pornhub statistics about ass vs breasts constantly. Calling pretty much all ass lovers mutts, Black folk, or some other nonsense. He's definitely one of the most bizarre characters in this arc.

            I have not played Stellar Blade and probably never will, but any game that gets a review saying "it's great in all of the most important ways for an action game" should get no less than a 9/10 as long as the graphics don't look like a chris chan drawing and the sound design is marginally better than Desert Bus.

              The thing is Stellar Blade is not really an action game. It's a story game with action in it. If it's a story game and the story sucks, it deserves knocked points. That's why Hades 2 is so commonly rated higher. There is story but it puts the gameplay ahead of everything else.

              Then why does the game have a story, dialogue, voice acting, music, etc? If you're going to include these things, you are going to be judged by their quality. If you don't want to be judged and rated by their quality, don't include them.

                You are either moronic or being disingenuous on purpose. If a cake is coated in 5 layers of icing, I am going to judge it based on the application and taste of said icing. If you don't want to be judged based on the icing, don't put it on there.

      Scores should be relative on your track record as a reviewer. IGN sucks off the industry hard so they tend to give high scores. This is also tricky because they're not in the same weight class.

      I'd put stellar blade at one step below Nier, which is one half step below DMC and Bayonetta on a good day.

      I'd put Hades 2 about the same as Hades 1, below bastion, and high among the cesspool of indie to single A roguelikes.

      >In what fricking universe?
