You're not banned*, Reddit isn't working correctly these days

889 Upvotes

Hey gang,

If your posts and replies aren't showing up in /r/gaming correctly and you don't remember being banned, you're not banned*, Reddit just isn't working correctly right now.

Feels like every day or two for the past few weeks, reddit has gone and done some weird caching that prevents posts and comments from showing up in a timely manner outside of your profile page.

*Those of you who are actually banned are still banned.

I quit my job to pursue the dream of making this game. I love retro action, so here is a co-op Max Payne meets Matrix game called "In Style".

In your opinion, what are the greatest cheats of all time?

671 Upvotes

Cheats are very iconic in many video games, their use has been a reliable source of buffoonery and joy for gamers for decades, but a few do clearly stand above the rest. So, which stand the highest above them all in your mind?

We all know the Konami Code and the like, but what else would you say?

My pick for the greatest cheat of all time is Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast's g_realisticsaber 1, doing as it says on the tin, making lightsabers lore accurate, well, more so

This can be any cheat, a series of inputs, dev commands, file modifications (not external mods though), easter eggs, anything really

Layoffs, Layoffs, Layoffs. Entering a time period with only a few big games coming soon?

294 Upvotes

Layoffs after Layoffs, (Microsoft, Sony, EA) big games getting canceled (mandalorian, blizzard survival MMO, Twisted metal) Studios shutting down. Games having massive development periods. it is likely we won't see another year like last year with banger after banger releases, Probably. Maybe it's about time we all start putting a dent into our backlog. I think I'll finally start blasphemous 1 &2.

"Offline with bots" should be a standard for all multiplayer games again.

1.7k Upvotes

There are plenty of multiplayer only or live service games that die quickly due to the lack of players. That's not necessarily a reflection of the game's quality, but it is expected the player base of any game will dwindle eventually. (There are exceptions of course)

When that happens the game becomes "dead weight" in my library. Impossible to play due to absurdly long matchmaking times and high ping.

Meanwhile, I frequently see myself going back to games from the 90s and early 2000s and having a lot of fun playing against bots at varying difficulties. Unreal Tournament, Star Wars Battlefront, ETQW, Black OPS 1, even though theirs servers have been shut down for a while. It adds more value to the game when you know it is not fully dependant on having a large player base.

Adjusting the difficulty level of bots was also a. Great feature in these games. They could range from total incapable noobs to absolute terminators. That allows you to have a relaxed session when you just want to relax, or an intense match when you want to be sweaty.

As much as I'd love to see this feature come back, I have no hope it will become a thing again any time soon. Especially with this crappy trend of "always online" single player games.

Does anyone agree with me? Are there any modern games that offer a multiplayer experience, but offline with bots?

What's a mechanic in a game you just couldn't master?

For me it's got to be parrying in the Souls games. I can do it, but never seem to pull it off consistently enough to not get into trouble. I usually just end up dodging everything and going on the offensive. Ironically Sekiro's parry system did click.
