  • If you need to take some damage to your faith in humanity today, there's a Fidget Spinner Simulator on Steam.

    It costs 99 cents, and yet most reviews I've seen still say it's not worth that much. It's just a bunch of stolen assets, shitty gameplay and it's so broken, some people have reported the achievements being practically impossible, while others have reported getting all achievements as soon as they opened the game. You know a game's bad when they report polar opposite problems with the same feature.

    Any positive reviews I've even found were complete joke reviews that were taking reviewing the game as seriously as the developer did making it.

      Honestly, this is pretty much the meme equivalent to Grass Simulator. It's only noteworthy at all because fidget spinners.

      Now, what I find actually offensive about this isn't that it's a crappy game that shouldn't be on steam, because steam is full of those. What I find offensive is the fact that the developer has the balls to sell a "premium member" dlc that I kid you not costs $50. And what does the $50 dlc give you? According to the description, it gives you an achievement, a gold fidget spinner, and a golden "vape." Yes, this guy is literally selling $50 horse armor for a game that cost $1. That puts EA's dlc practices to shame.

      @RiR Yeah, it exists, and is still on steam surprisingly enough. The best part is that the only semi-real looking positive reviews on steam happen to coincidentally say "product reviewed for free" on them.

      Regardless, ever since experiencing the insanity of Air Control back in 2015, very few bad steam games actually shock me nowadays. The only reason I find this game any more noteworthy than any of the others (besides from fidget spinner maymays) is because of the $50 horse armor dlc, which is by far the lowest I've ever seen a game go, let alone a $1 fidget spinner game that is completely broken. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this game was some money laundering scheme that the dev(s) decided to slap a price tag on to get a bit of extra money. I mean, seriously, who seriously is going to release a $1 game on steam, and then proceed to release a $50 reskin dlc just for the memes?
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      Oh wait, I just checked the steam page again and now the dlc is impossible to purchase, which means that either Valve actually caught on about this, or the guy is hiding it before it gets too much attention. It's hilarious how sketchy this is.
    • idc
      idc
      I think I mentioned it before but there have been money laundering schemes before exactly like that (A very expensive DLC for an unknown game). But this is probably not that.
      They would be pretty dumb to do a fidget spinner game for that since it'd get attention for sure.

  • So, it seems Bubsy is getting a new game.

    Yes. Bubsy. The one game series that does not have a single good game. The one JonTron made a video about. That Bubsy.

    Not a joke, there's even a fully-fledged trailer. With voice acting and, I hate to say it, actually pretty okay graphics.



    Who the fuck thought this was a good idea, I dunno. Whether or not this could be good . . . yeah there's no way this will turn out to be Bubsy's big break.

      Jarr2003
      @Idc That's far from fortunate if true.

      @Billabo I think my example would be legal, since it isn't threatening a specific person, nor is it a serious threat. I'm not certain about it, though.
    • Debator
      Debator
      I dont see how hate speech should be legal
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Debator When people aren't allowed to share their beliefs, it becomes easier to forget why they are so flawed. If someone has a truly flawed belief, then they should be allowed to say it no matter how many people hate it, because it allows them to essentially ruin their own argument, whether they realize it or not. If you were to ban hate speech, then the people who say things considered "hate speech" could easily turn this into a violation of free speech and fight against it, creating sympathy for their cause and making it more difficult to defeat their argument. When they're allowed to just speak their beliefs, then one can easily focus on why their argument is flawed.

      Furthermore, if a country decides to ban hate speech, then the question becomes "What counts as hate speech?" It's easy at first to just say stuff like racism is hate speech, but then what counts as racism? It might seem obvious what is racism to you and me, but there are people who see racism in everything, and racism in nothing. Furthermore, it's only so long after that before a politician gets the chance to "extend" what is considered hate speech. How long would it be before politicians turn it into a tool to silence those that disagree with them? There very well could become a point where people like Trump cannot run for president just because a decent portion of the population disagree with him (and say what you will about Trump, but he still has the right to run for president). It's a very slippery slope that just increases the potential for corruption rather than helping the cause it's supposedly trying to help.

      Just a slight correction, this was NOT Nintendo's doing, but rather The Pokemon Company's. Completely different people deciding these things. The Pokemon Company is not even a part of Nintendo directly and is the owner of the Brand overall, they just partner with Nintendo and GameFreak for the games

      I am happy having laws against hate speech. Sure at times the UK has problems with discussion with people being branded racist for talking about immigration but this has
      lessened massively now and that is a good thing. But people aren't silenced for disagreeing.

      They are charged if they call for the death of someone/a race/gender/whatever or target people with abuse. Or if they keep posting/shouting/whatever very offensive things.
      I for one would rather live in a country where it is illegal to do what the Westboro Baptist Church do (some of their members are banned from coming to the UK too). I don't want to live in a country where it is legal to shout abuse and picket at funerals for soldiers. I don't want to live somewhere where people can say 'god hates fags' to people like me in public and get away with it.

      Saying stuff like "gays are retards" isnt hate speech, however saying "gays are retards and should all die" is hate speech
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Purge Slight correction to your slight correction, according to my research (which admittedly is very little), Nintendo owns the trademark for pokemon (assuming wikipedia is correct), and as thus owns the pokemon brand. Correct me if I'm wrong about that, though, I don't know that much about the company itself.

      Anyways, a company closely affiliated with Nintendo has shut down another fan project. Even if Nintendo didn't directly shut it down, it's still closely related to the pokemon company and has done not just similar, but worse things, like shutting down that metroid fan game.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Idc Calling for the death of someone counts as a threat, I think, so that is illegal in the US. I'm not certain if it can actually lead to an arrest, though. I think it might just cause an FBI investigation on the person, but not prison or anything.

      Anyways, yes, the Westboro Baptist Church is awful. But at the same time, why do we hate the Westboro Baptist Church? Because they are allowed to speak their mind, even if their beliefs are almost universally hated. The fact that they have the audacity to protest at a funeral does more to destroy any positive opinions of them than silencing them does. It's a necessary evil to allow the Westboro Baptist Church to do these things, because if we don't, we actually make it easier to sympathize with them.

      Think about it this way: the Westboro Baptist Church is a wooden tower. Whenever they do one of their protests, one of the support beams holding up the tower breaks. They essentially destroy their own tower. They might occasionally be able to repair a support beam or two, but they will soon enough break the beams again. However, when they can't protest and speak their minds, the tower's support beams don't break. In fact, it becomes easier to add more support beams to make the tower more powerful. Maybe at an extremely slow rate, but as long as they can't protest, the tower will stay stable. You may hate the Westboro Baptist Church's beliefs, but making them unable to protest doesn't harm them, it helps them, ironically enough. It's easy to think that nobody would ever protest at a soldier's funeral, but the Westboro Baptist Church disillusions this idea, and in the process commit unintentional suicide.

      If a person is really going to protest at funerals and shout "god hates fags" to people, then let him/her. They don't need to be punished by the government, their stupidity is punishment enough. And I'm sorry Zyzzyzus, but it doesn't matter whether you want to hear something or not. It still needs to be allowed, whether you like it or not. I, quite frankly, am disgusted by a lot of the things I've heard you say. But even if I don't want to hear what you have to say sometimes, you should never be censored for having beliefs I disagree with (or beliefs anyone else agrees with). It is simply wrong to do so.
    • Debator
      Debator
      although saying "god hates fags" still hurts the people at the funeral, how will you deal with that
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Debator Unfortunately, the people who are at the funeral just need to ignore them. It's a bitter solution, but the only solution. While it is surely a painful experience to go through, we can't let our emotions decide how the law should work.

      @Lefian Well, maybe "almost killed me" might have been a bit of an overreaction, but it still seemed like it could have hurt something or someone. And it also seemed to aim at me.

      So, these things they set off were relatively small, shoot off sparks and move at sorta high speeds.

      First one was a dud, second one scared the shit out of me but didn't do any real damage.

      Last one flew up a bit in the air and started going in my direction, came very fucking close. It got caught on a kinda big plant before it ended up reaching me, luckily. Surprised I didn't shout "holy fuck" out loud in front of my entire family the minute I saw it flying in my direction. Probably would have if it got any closer than the now-singed plant.

      Probably the first time I've been afraid of a fucking firework since I was a lot younger.

      I can say right here and now that I am human. I have never been nor will I ever be a dog or an alien. Anyone saying otherwise is just a lying liar who lies a lot.

      I mean I'm examining my lying lying that is actively lying right now. Which means it's it's in a lying state of being a liar right now, which is pretty much lying, I guess.
