Just neck yourself, faggot. You can't even understand a simple joke in a story which isn't supposed to be good or taken seriously. You are a true retard. The game is called "Policenauts" for fuck sake.

>> No.8030614

never claims i want maturity, just tonal consistency. barney the dinosaur doesnt go on a tirade about the gulf war and nuclear disarmament
but james bond is fucking shit. literally british propaganda.
all his games are like that though not just policenauts. even games that aren't meant to be jokes.
Kojima is a joke and so are his rabid fans.

I still don't know why a couple of humoristic moments in games lasting 10 to 20 hours bothers you so much. It's not 90 minute film where consistency makes more sense. When you watch a series, do you want it to maintain tonal consistency for an entire season? What do you think of something like Better Call Saul, which mixes humor and drama to great effect?

Many video games, even if their premise is serious, will allow the player to do silly or audacious things. e.g. in Grand Theft Auto you can ignore all objectives and just drive around town running over pedestrians for no reason.
Adventure games often had humorous responses coded for players trying stupid commands like "eat door."

God Policenauts sucks! It's like a really bad Visual Novel. And I don't know, seriously, VN are like the easiest thing in the world to design. So when you design a bad one, that is remarkable.

Like the entire story of Policenaughts is not only a pixel hunt, but you basically have to try everything, and then try everything multiple times. So if you don't know this, like if you want to know about some photograph, you ask about the photograph, and she tells you something, and then you have to ask the same topic again. So that photograph entry can occur 3 or 4 times. And then you have to start from the beginning and try them all again because the third time might have opened something new up. And you have to exhaust every single option. ALL OF THEM. Before the game will let you move on. That is HORRIBLE.

It's not like an oldschool adventure game. Because in an adventure game you don't have to look at and inspect everything on the screen multiple times. You're just sitting there, desperately wanting to move on with the plot, and then you're stuck trying to inspect every little thing over and over again, and asking people the same questions over and over again. Ah it's bad. And when it finally gets exciting, it gets exciting for 20 seconds then you're right back at it.

Is the plot interesting? Not really. You know what the story is? It is 5% Blade Runner, 95% Lethal Weapon. It's straight up Riggs and Murtaugh. It's not even subtle. He rips off whole scenes. It's amazing.
