Kinjhatman's posts - English uPOST

On the day (January 30th, 2019) of the Wii Shop Channel’s closure, a little angry chirp was made out of the corner of the Twitterverse which grew into a full blown rage against the corporate machine.

SNK Reveals Its New Game in 3 Days - Plausible Possibilities and Prepostrous Prospects SNK Reveals Its New Game in 3 Days - Plausible Possibilities and Prepostrous Prospects

As is tradition with all major Japanese developers and publishers, SNK decided that an announcement of a countdown to the announcement was the best way to state that they have a new game. These kind of things are popular in Japan though we in North America have often derisively dismissed them. That being said, we were…

Cue the Fanfare, Dragon Quest 1 Through 9 Has Been Vanquished Cue the Fanfare, Dragon Quest 1 Through 9 Has Been Vanquished

We often talk about people who played games to the detriment of their health - Whether it be the man who died after a 24 hours livestream, the streamer who inspired Twitch’s ResidentSleeper emote, or one of the many cases of deaths in Korean PC Baangs, all of these inevitably will make a measure of headlines in the…

What in the Actual Hell is Happening in Payday 2 What in the Actual Hell is Happening in Payday 2

Payday 2 is a video game where you take control of one of many career criminals (including guest characters) in order to perpetuate heists to get richer, get more gear, and perpetuate harder and more lucrative heists and... You get the picture. It turns out this video game had a story all along and it’s going in…

Playlog: I Broke Destiny 2 Playlog: I Broke Destiny 2

After learning how the game works, I decided to re-roll my Titan so I wouldn’t sacrifice my free Exotics like I did on my first character. Like an idiot.

Try As It Might, Dissidia NT Will Never Be eSports Try As It Might, Dissidia NT Will Never Be eSports

Square-Enix have touted the arcade brawler as their entry into the eSports world, perhaps tooting their own horn too early. They bought themselves some early interest by putting forward a pre-release tournament with FGC folks who’d never really played the game before, then getting themselves a slot on the Wednesday…

Playlog: Destiny 2 - I Have No Idea What I'm Doing Playlog: Destiny 2 - I Have No Idea What I'm Doing

Those of you who aren’t in the TAY Discord (and really, you should be!) may not know that some giveaways were done in order to commemorate the 3 years of its existence. Well, during those giveaways, this happened:

The Big Bad Game-a-thon Just Released Their Games List  The Big Bad Game-a-thon Just Released Their Games List 

I swear I’m not JUST talking about it because I got a game in. This is legitimately an event that was a blast last year and this year’s game list is definitely a strong one - From classic bad games like Arabian Nights (featured at AGDQ this year) to some powerful trash such as Captain America in: The Doom Tube of Dr.…

SNK Heroines Outfits Are Pretty Rad SNK Heroines Outfits Are Pretty Rad

Yeah, this game again. I didn’t intend on writing another post about it, but apparently cute girls with fanservice outfits is a popular subject around here. I don’t get it, but then again I passively thirst about anything that looks remotely human, so that’s just me.

Here's Your 14th SNK Heroines Character - Terry Bogard Here's Your 14th SNK Heroines Character - Terry Bogard

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you SNK Heroines’ final character - Terry Bogard. As far as genderbent/rule 63/woman version of a male character is concerned, this design is genius. It’s a call back to the amazing Midnight Bliss version of Terry from SNK vs. Capcom: Chaos (a forgettable game for all the wrong…

SixTAY Days of Writing - Wrap-Up SixTAY Days of Writing - Wrap-Up

Yesterday marked the end of an event two months in the making. Several of us did it, others did not. 60 posts in 60 days, no breaks. It’s hard man. However, that’s the life of your typical journalist. Gotta keep writing. Sometimes, you won’t have to post on a couple of days, but that’s because you’re working on a…

Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages: Present Day Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages: Present Day

Pinball, as we know it, is suffering. Suffering from being murdered. Murdered by VIDEO GAMES. Ok, let’s cut the melodrama - It was inevitable, as people stopped frequenting arcades in America to stay home, that pinball would die. A few hardheads and pinball dads still frequent trade shows, restore tables and generally…

Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages: The 90's (Williams part 2) Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages: The 90's (Williams part 2)

Last time, I only brought up Terminator 2: Judgment Day as one of the licensed tables that Williams did, but even in the early days, Williams had a lot of other licenses. While Data East Pinball often had some big licenses, Williams had a contract with Universal allowing them usage of their properties. We’ve already…

Down The Drain: Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages - The 90's (Williams Part 1) Down The Drain: Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages - The 90's (Williams Part 1)

Wait, Part 1? That’s right. While the other manufacturers had a reasonable amount of tables for this era, Williams has something like... 19 tables. That’s... a lot of tables to cover in one post. If I want to give Williams proper credit for their pin division (and they deserve it in this era, some of my favorite…

Four Job Fiesta pulls, ranked Four Job Fiesta pulls, ranked

I’m unfortunately without wifi today, so you’re getting a per crystal ranking of the usefulness of jobs for the fiesta, assuming you’re doing a normal run. Of course, if you’re doing something like Chaos, Forbidden, Upgrade or Classic, the entire parameters change.

Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages: The 90's (Stern) Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through The Ages: The 90's (Stern)

Stern Pinball has quite the history. First formed when the Stern family bought Chicago Coin in 1977, they eventually got rocked by the north american video game crash. They were then purchased by Data East and became Data East Pinball, which were then sold to Sega... which were then bought by Gary Stern, remaking them…

There's 4 Triple A Studios Established In Montreal, But You Can't Eat Poutine In Any Of Their Games There's 4 Triple A Studios Established In Montreal, But You Can't Eat Poutine In Any Of Their Games

The peeps behind TAY’s open forum decided to use a pic of a poutine and made me think of this fact. Still, this is sort of a dumby follow up to my pro wrestling post that stated that pro wrestling is in a lot of games, but pro wrestling games were few and far between. The same can be said of, well, French…

Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through the Ages: The 90's (Bally) Down The Drain - Pinball Arcade's Tables Through the Ages: The 90's (Bally)

As we remember from the late 80s post, Bally’s pinball division was acquired by Williams Electronics. However, they kept the Bally branding for certain reasons. In a way, the ‘90s were Bally/Williams’ years on top of the pinball world. Gottlieb would fold in ‘96. Stern (then Data East Pinball and soon enough after,…
