    (SPOILER)ndicates many times the guns in games such as Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 are first made "extremely accurate, based on factory stats and more" then toned down, not just for balancing reasons, but because of "the drive to make guns feel like the ones we've seen in movies." Like shotguns loaded with buckshot: People associate shotguns with powerful, close-range weapons ... So a shotgun blast [in the game] will punch through walls and armor just fine, even though buckshot is known for its lack of penetration in the real world.

    • Sniper Rifles are especially the case for this. One of the earliest sniping games, Silent Scope, gave bonuses for head shots because they were more challenging. This has led to the trope of sniper rifles in games only killing on a head shot - even though real sniper rifles will kill on a shot anywhere above the waist, which is a far preferable shot precisely because aiming at the head has a high chance of missing.


    Is true?

    I don't suppose you have Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD on PS3, do you? Going through old game downloads and I forgot I bought it years ago. I remember playing a couple games and hating it and then I deleted it and forgot all about it. Just started playing it now and OMG I've won 2 matches! xD

    Actually, scrap that for now! I'm far too tired. Started work at 6am so I've been up for like 18 hours and I need to recharge my batteries! Soon, though. Soon

    Hey we can get a couple games in now if you like? I enjoy playing against you and Pumpkin because I don't get angry like I do in ranked matches xD I'm a bad loser.

    Luke Cage was great up until they killed off Cottonmouth and replaced him with the out-of-nowhere hammy brother. Then it kind of fell apart for me, a few good episodes aside. Iron Fist didn't even have the chance to fall apart, because I hated it unironically from the get-go and it just got worse as it went on; as I told Ashton, 25% of the reason I'm looking forward to The Defenders is to watch the heroes from the good shows kick Danny's scrawny punk ass. I haven't watched Supergirl because I've heard... mixed reviews.

    So you haven't watched the best ones for each? Let me advise you on your next binge-watches then. The best Marvel shows are Daredevil (the second season, which is the "Elektra" thing you're thinking of, is weaker than the first, but still has a lot going for it) and Jessica Jones, which is a masterpiece with only a few pacing flaws. The best things to come out of DC are Arrow (which gets off to a slow start, but gets progressively better throughout the first season and is perfect by the second) and the first season -- only the first season -- of The Flash, which crosses over a few times with the third season of Arrow, so I'd recommend watching them concurrently. They're everything you like about Supergirl, but way more consistent and genuinely good.

    This has been KK's Geeky Recommendation Hour.
