        It's called conditioning. The next step is normalization.
        Ganker used to tell any 4chantard to fuck off and chase them out of the board.

          The problem wasn't that 4chan wouldn't shut up. Ganker dealt with their shit easily for a long fucking time without everything falling apart. The problem was when Ganker and 4chan started following the same trains of thought.
          In case you forgot, there was a point when nearly every facet of vidya was under sudden assault by keyboard warriors. Every goddamn game, topic, forum, and site was suddenly being turned into safe spaces and echo chambers. Which in itself wasn't terrible since most of Ganker could keep from shouting moron everywhere and those that couldn't were locked in the basement. But then the added pressure came in when transsexuals, the 50 genders, and countless types of "love" were thrown into the mix. Does it seem like I'm not talking about vidya at this point? Because that's where we were at going into 2016. Vidya's main topics were being changed from "fun", "entertaining", and "engaging" to "safe", "diverse", and "inclusive". You had to really go out of your way to NOT talk about it. Then 2016 happened, Ganker shot up in popularity, bringing in new waves of people that didn't understand what was going on, what not to talk about, and what was or wasn't welcome (again) and any cohesiveness that could have kept Ganker about vidya was lost forever.
          Also with 2016 came the endless racial topics in vidya that used to be tumblrina exclusive. At this point, talking on Ganker was basically talking on 4chan but with a vidya theme with the odd thread that was actually about fucking videogames.

          tl;dr: it wasn't 4chan that normalized it, it was the world

              I don't think you've understood anything I've said.
              The post was not about pointing the finger but explaining where we're at and how we got there. Ganker may be a loose collective of social stunted rejects, but it's still inexorably tied to the culture of the world at large. The culture of the world started having pervasive topics of transsexuals, homosexuals, and everything inbetween. Videogames too were affected by this cultural shift. So why would you think a board dedicated to videogames wouldn't start talking more and more about trannies, homos, and the lot? To say "it's 4chans fault!" is not only hypocritical, but also just wrong. If what you're talking about isn't the fact that you practically couldn't avoid these topics while talking about modern videogames but instead that you're angry that our response to said topics is something you disagree with, then by all means fuck off or post something worth a damn rather than pretending it was some 4chan psyop.

          i've been here since 2004, and the only people i've ever seen regularly "discriminated" against on Ganker are severely autistic "black pill" type incels, and they were never the "original" population. they weren't even the original population of their current containment board, LULZ. they were themselves the very invaders your image complains about. anyone else who's "discriminated" against quickly learns to lurk more and stop retardposting, or fucks off back to whichever reddit or discord hugbox or groomcave they came from.

      I prefer Bastion over Transistor. The gameplay in Transistor is generally more robust but the game loop in Bastion lends itself to better replayability. You can just pick the game up and play a bit without having to replay the whole damn game or scum around in the challenge area indefinitely. That being said I did still adore it.

      I also thought it was funny when people unironically thought that Red was a chud because the title has trans in it. Like, she was a bonafide woman that liked strong, muscular, handsome men.

        My main complaint with Pyre is that they didn't make the multiplayer component online, I can imagine that'd be a game people still pop in to play to this day if they added netcode to it.

        No, steam remote play together is not an answer, especially if you have anything short of fiber optic internet with stupid fast upload speeds.

          >keep it fresh
          the key is in the Titan Stars (aka difficulty modifiers)
          there's a new game plus mode where you need a certain number of modifiers active before you play a match. and that number increases after every Liberation Rite
          So the game gets progressively harder as you move forward with the story and you're tactically planning which modifiers to use on which teams because certain ones are more beneficial to them
          >tfw you give Oralech +hope and auto-revives
          if you wanna give it a shot but haven't beaten the game, activate 3 modifiers as soon as possible and manully increase that number by 1 after every Liberation Rite.
          Also, no retries so you live with your losses which really changes how the story flows

              Biggest mistake of Pyre is that the default difficulty makes the game way too easy and never really incentivizes the player to ever dive into the mechanics of the game and all the different team comps you can do. It also hurts the narrative because you're supposed to be fighting for your lives, but it never really feels like that due to how easy it is. The game on the highest difficulty is incredible.

              >The game on the highest difficulty is incredible.
              damn right it is. on my first playthrough I had a lot of modifiers active on the Oralech fight and with most of my max level guys liberated i was scrapping by with my mid level team.
              I had the +hope and "auto-revives on enemy wipe" modifiers active so it was a constant stream of getting rushed. the final battle took a total of 30 minutes and it was down to the wire when it came to the score

                Fits the narrative a lot better too since it actually feels like you and your team are fighting your lives and like you said, some of the matches are very tense.

                Pamitha, but mainly for how she interacts with other characters. Like her beef with Jodariel and the fact that the "Let my sister win just this once" event happened on her Liberation Rite on my playthrough
                Was stupidly split on what to do to the point where I stalled just to give myself time to think
                I won, but seeing her ending with unresolved sister issues really sucked especailly since I got her and Jodi to play nice before liberating her
                Hedwyn's a bro tho. It's just too bad that he literally disappears in the first few hours because he was the "best" choice for the first candidate

    Supergiant's second best game.

      Hades is a great game, but it's their least interesting game both mechanically and narratively. I feel like Pyre's failure made them abandon doing more experimental stuff and now that they're making a sequel and it's to Hades makes me a bit concerned for their future games. Regardless of your thoughts on Pyre, I think it's hard to deny that it is an incredibly unique game.

        This wouldn't bother me as much if it weren't for the announcement of Hades 2.
        One of my favorite things about supergiant was that, outside of an isometric perspective, none of their games were truly the same thing, but the fact that we're getting more of the same with Hades 2 kinda sucks.

        Again, I don't think Hades is bad, I just think it's their least memorable and interesting game.

          It just felt like the second worst of the bunch, and unlike Transistor (the worst), there wasn't enough for me to stay invested. The fact that we probably won't see another game like Pyre upsets me, but instead we are going to get another roguelike instead. Because god knows there aren't enough roguelikes out there right now. I'm glad supergiant is getting more attention at least, but it feels like a monkey's paw wish.

          It was to be expected; Hades was a success far beyond what they could have imagined. Making a sequel to capitalize on it was the logical next step; especially since it's still relatively new, helps the momentum going.

    I really don't like the way supergiant combat feels, even with hades, which everyone loved. Theres just something about it that feels really unsatisfying and stiff to me, maybe its the camera
    For transistor though, thats kind of moot because the focus is on the abilities and planning out your attacks. Its definitely my favorite out of all of them, and the final boss was amazing. I think in like, 10 years, people are gonna say that hades was super overrated, but I also think transistor and pyre are gonna age really gracefully

    Decent game, phenomenal music, great art.
    I dunno if it was just my TV but the sound mixing seemed a little fucked and the Sword-boyfriend talking was almost always drowned out by the music which is a bit of a problem when 95% of the game's narration is done by him.
    It's my second favorite behind Bastion, but that's because Bastion has better gameplay. As much as I love the art and music of Supergiant, a game still needs to have gameplay at it's core and Bastion delivers better than Transistor.
    Hades and Pyre score lower because I'm not as much of a fan of their styles and music.

I vaguely remember the final boss being some gentleman dude and had absolutely no connection to him and had no idea who he even was. As a matter of fact, I had the same experience with Bastion. Only things I remember about Bastion was the narrator saying "The Kid..." a lot and then beating everybody down at the end of the game with a tree trunk. I beat these games in no more than 4-5hours, in one sitting, then never touched them again.

      Hades blew everything they ever did out of the water popularity wise, so now they're milking it for all it's worth.

    I personally enjoyed it. Knowing Ganker, one third hates the game itself, one third thinks it's perfection 'cause "muh gay and muh interracial," and the last third probably hates it for the exact same reason. Personally, I thought it was enjoyable enough with a great soundtrack. Story's a bit short, but so is the game. Best part is the attack/load out customization.

      I liked it. The upgrade system was interesting and it was the first game I played that let you switch from turn based to real time combat with a button press.
      And I liked Red and Mr Nobody, for a mute and a murder victim trapped in a sword they had good chemistry together.

      Supergiant games have to be short IMO. They're not good at making interesting gameplay. Look at Bastion, its dull and basic as fuck. But because of how polished everything around that dull gameplay is we can put up with it for the music and the art and the story, its why those are the things we remember first when we look back on Transistor or Bastion or whatever.
      Its why Hades sucks balls. That formula works for a one shot narrative, it doesnt work for a roguelike that requires constant repetition. Pretty backgrounds can only keep your attention the first two or three times through them, not for 100+

      I'm not a massive roguelike player. I enjoy some of them (I have a good couple of hundred hours in RoR for example) but overall the constant repetition makes me want to stab a moron.
      Hades lost me halfway through the third loop. I just wasnt having fun and I uninstalled.

      It's just kind of generic when you put it next the rest of their line up. There are enough roguelike out there that scratch the same itch.

      This was my first Supermassive game, but in the context of roguelites it has an AMAZING first impression. But as it goes on it turns into Candyland where it either wastes your time or funnels you into specific mashy builds. The endurance/Thanatos events waste time and there's a lot of "meh" boons that ruin the honeymoon impression.

      It's just awkward. I beat the game on my third run, before I even met Thanatos, and it was obviously not something the game accounted for in terms of plot or character arcs.

    10/10 game, played it back on the PS4 when it came out, and I especially loved the fact that you could make the narrator's voice come from the controller itself, and the colors would flash a little when he spoke. I thought it was a pretty neat detail. Does anyone know if by chance that you can do the same for the PC version of this game? I have an old DS4 laying around and I want to replay it again, but I couldn't find anything online.

    It's like Bastion except really bad idk why people like this game.
    In order to understand even 20% of what the fuck is going on you literally have to pause the game and read everyone's character bio.
    Also the combat is technically okay on it's own but it's never integrated into the actual world the way Bastion was. Every combat arena is separate from the parts where you're just walking.
    It's just really boring everything feels lifeless.

    Great music and presentation, and a creative take on blending turn-based and real-time combat.

    But I think the ambiguous storytelling hurts it more than it helps it. Supergiant does great world-building and interesting character ideas, so obscuring it all for the sake of encouraging theory swapping seemed like a wasted opportunity because I didn't understand a lot of the stakes or character motivations while playing. And the actual nature of the setting feels like a mystery in the end.

    The combat is more creative than Bastion, but I feel like it's a bit half baked. Like an early version of Hades that punishes experimentation instead of encouraging it, because taking a risk and dying just means you're handicapped until you make more progress. So you usually find a build that works and just stick with it. It gets interesting with the final boss, but the game overall is too short to make the most of its ideas.

    Not a bad game at all, but probably my least favorite from Supergiant.

      It's kind of a continuation with what they did with Bastion but I think it was much better executed with Transistor. Too bad its strongest point is the story and it feel like for most people, it has been beaten with Supergiant's later games. For Transistor unfortunately, the combat is too shallow to really revisit the game but the OST is still top notch, best in the series.

    I feel like hades will be this companies last good game. The reason Hades wasnt as pozzed as others during 2020 is that it started development during a time where pozzed games werent as pushed as 2018 onwards. The story was mostly lighthearted and had a positive tone. Hades 2 looks like it will push a more pozzed storyline

    The fact that they are doing a hades 2 instead of another creative game that the company is known for is proof that the company is turning into some AAA studio that only chases profits due to hades massive success

      While part of me is sad that they broke their whole "no sequels or DLC" streak. It's hard for me to blame them for striking the iron while it's hot.

      Pyre was a high-effort blend of genres, organic music, and original lore. But it sold like seven copies. Being a critically acclaimed indie studio has no monetary guarantees in the business, so they're making the most of the unprecedented win they got with Hades.

      Beyond that, we've seen nothing of the sequel's actual story beyond the new protagonist. Which only offends those who want to bitch about playing as a girl.

    Perfect game for lonely baby-men who crave female attention.
    Great music, great visuals, interesting combat system that is wholly wasted on a 4-hour long game, and that's pushing it.
    Glad they moved away from cinematic experiences and towards more fun gameplay loop-oriented video games.

      to be fair I beat hades in 4 hours too. After that you are just beating the exact game 9 more times to see an ending with little to no differences (depending if you slightly change bosses through mods)
