The difference between good and liking something
It has become much more noticeable to me that people will hold their thoughts on something, no surprise there. However, I've increasingly noticed that people use terms like "Good" and "Bad" to echo their opinions on something, whether they like it. It seems 90% of the people in the world think that something they like is good, while something they don't either sucks, is bad, or suckin fucks. But, good and bad determine the quality of something, liking or not liking something is independent of said quality.

I like a lot of things that a lot of people don't, again pretty obvious if you know me. I'll be the first to say a lot of the things I like can be pretty bad quality-wise. But that's the thing, LIKING SOMETHING AND THINKING IT IS GOOD ARE NOT THE SAME THING. Let's take the ever Testosterone-bleeding Halo for a minute. I don't really care for Halo games, they're okay. But don't think that makes me think they're bad games, because they aren't really. They have solid graphics, and the music is usually well done. But I don't care for the gameplay itself, so the games are of little consequence to me. Lets look at it again: I don't really like the games, but I can admit they are rather solidly done, not 10/10 good, but perhaps a good 7 or 8. And we'll leave the lasting impacts the game has had on the industry, how gamers are viewed, and how the cesspit that was xbox live was born for another tale.

It defies the English language, and I can excuse non-native speakers, because they probably don't know. But it really does piss me off that people are ignoring such a blatant cockup. People seem to have developed this idea where if you like something it's good. Which okay, that's fine and all, but if you don't look at the bigger picture you devalue whatever it is you're talking about, your opinion, and everyone who's around to hear or read it. Not liking something doesn't make it bad, it just means you don't like it, and there's nothing wrong with not liking things.

Set your console to Offline, you'll be able to sign in and play offline that way.

Comment by ClownTastic at 01:35 on 16 Aug 2018

Not perfect though, GwG stuff won't work and it seems like it won't acknowledge my games on my external drive while offline either.

This game is comparable to throwing up in a toilet constantly, and not favorably. headspin

Congrats. Tell me about what's involved in this- I know next to nothing about this game other than it's a rough, long completion.

Comment by ClownTastic at 09:42 on 14 Aug 2018

Most of it is just repetition to be honest. Nothing is inherently difficult, it's just about how much patience you have. My walkthrough for it should be published
