@themcnoisy Absolutely brilliant. And then after things are looking good, there will be a difficulty spike where a dungeons tosses us in Apex Legends-like and our gears seems to be not doing any damage and we have to find a glitchy part part of the map which lets into a developer safe room, but it requires cosmetic objects to be brought it at certain parts to activate it. During which only I’m the only one that doesn’t get KOed by hiding in a bush as I remembered a friend did once . After we get into the room and get un KO'd to get some new props and gear at Hot Topic and GameStop which takes a lot of our funds.
Then we go back overpowered while all the enemies are scrambling to get gear that's in random spots. The final boss is a rainbowed colored suit wearing cyborg on a flying unicorn that shoots micotransactions at us putting our funds dangerously low, and then after Troy gets insane lag for low funds after taking a hit for the team and promptly KO'd, we make a sacrifice and throw a valuable item at it, a no microtranaction, full only single-player game with no DLC. This opens it up for a special all-out attack where it gets sliced up by Pushsquare avatars

I think I might pre-order Persona 5 Scramble when it becomes available. Thought the demo was quite fun.

Huntin' monsters erryday.

Tactic of the year Jaz, unless you want to finish first. Hahaha.

Fun Fact: Dolphins use puffer fish to get high before passing it to the right!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I find it funny what even animals get themselves high. Like how the black leemurs use millipedes' toxins to get intoxicated

Saw possibly my favourite tweet today from Fortnite Streamer Ninja...

The phrase “it’s just a game” is such a weak mindset. You are ok with what happened, losing, imperfection of a craft. When you stop getting angry after losing, you’ve lost twice.

There’s always something to learn, and always room for improvement, never settle.

While I have been retweeting variants of it all day and replacing 'it's just a game' with things like 'Bowel movement' etc. I wondered what everyone on here thought? I think it is ridiculous advice but hey, I have seen some people on social media defending it.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Rudy_Manchego
By far the majority of people play games to have fun, relax, unwind, and of course, for escapism.
So getting angry or upset, it's not something that should be encouraged. If that's a common occurrence, I'd say it's time to find another game. Or a different hobby.
Certainly not a mindset that's healthy to have.

@LieutenantFatman @Rudy_Manchego I think to an extent it just a game for most of us. The thing is though, streaming this stuff and being good at it is his livelihood. The advice applies to him very well and is good advice for someone in his position. I think the same thing applies to sports as well.
That being said wanting improve at Dark Souls (or basketball) make sense, but most of us should only take it so far. The way he says it is a little extreme for most of us.

@Rudy_Manchego @LieutenantFatman @Jaz007 I think it’s a very different situation for us compared to people that make their livelihood from gaming. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting Ninja in a category alongside actual eSports players that are, y’know, good but the point still stands that it’s not just a game for people like him. It’s just like athletes who strive to do better, sometimes losing is a part of improving. Ninja’s still an absolute badger-factory though.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

LieutenantFatman

Yes, granted, the mindset is likely to be different when it's less of a hobby and more of a job. But I'm not convinced that getting angry is conducive to effective learning and improving. Just sounds like a weak excuse for having a bad temper.

@theMCnoisy tossing our conversation over here so we don't derail the thread. Thursday sounds good. Let's what real games we might have on the table. If the groups not too big (4 people can team up) and you claimed it as Plus game a while ago Dead by Daylight could be a fun one to group up on. Any PSVR MP stuff we have could be a good try too. Any other thoughts for real games?

@LieutenantFatman @nessisonett @Jaz007 Yeah, I mean I think the tweet was talking more about playing competetively with an eye to streaming/esports or leagues etc. of which Ninja makes his living and I think part of the advice about learning, working hard is all good stuff. I just think tying competition with anger is a dangerous road. I mean, conduct is an important part of any scene - if I were to get angry as a professional footballer when playing, if my behaviour warranted I would be penalised. I guess having experienced temper outbursts from randoms, some directed my way, it is quite offputting and not something to encourage.
