I want to get off of this ride.
Why can't they just enjoy the game and stop being awful people?
>The older users tend not to comment at all
You're a god damn wizard. Should I try interacting with these things then?
The funny part is that are plenty more "damsel in distress" stories in modern indie games trying to cater to the sjw community than in the old games that were dominated by the patriarchy
>you now realize every male in the millennial generation has been brainwashed into believing they have a feminine penis
I encounter more and more kids online who claim to be gay yet they sound like they are fucking 10 to 12 years old. You can't even begin to convince me that deviant fucking homos haven't been recruiting like mad from impressionable kids
>People complaining about Shield Knight being a "damsel in distress".
To be honest, that bothered me too, for non-gender related reasons. The opening cutscene sets her up as a cool adventurer, and then it turns out that her fighting style is literally just giving Shovel Knight a boost.
Of course that's what they've been doing. That's why Russia went as far as they did, they were tried of all the homosexual propaganda aimed right at kids.
Youd think theyd be happy with the gender swap thing.
But yeah, if you are expecting everyone to be happy about something, you are gonna be waiting for a long time.
Might as well get over it. Dummies will be dummies
>She's a shield knight, her entire persona is built around protection
Yeah, after all, it's been clearly established that you can't use an unorthodox object as a weapon in the world of Shovel Knight.
>deviant fucking homos haven't been recruiting like mad
Jesus christ alive. You sound fucking batshit.
>implying shields are purely defensive
>Mfw people still bring this up.
>Mfw OP's actually entertaining these thoughts.
Remember when people played video games just to play them? When it was just a series of problem solving methods?
Remember, it's suppose to be fun; not political.
>the game doesnt have her attack anything so that means she can't
YOU are the player character in SK. therefore, after saving Shield Knight, her job is to watch your back and shield you from all harm, and giving you opportunities to hit the weakspot. it's a tag team effort.
that said, I wish there was a shield Knight mode. would be fun
Well there is gonna be a future patch (hopefully with the villain campaigns) that adds a genderswap mode.
SK will be a girl, Shield Knight will be a man, knights of no quarter will be women and the sorceress will be a dude so on and so forth
The NFL copyrighted "Superb owl" and are so notoriously heavy handed with their lawyers the only way you can make reference to it is "the big game". Take notice next year that literally none of the commercials except the official NFL ones say it.
YOU'VE BEEN TRYING TO FUCK MY BOY IN THE BOODYHOLE! YOU'VE BEEN TRYING TO FUCK MY BOY IN THE BOODYHOLE! YOU SICK PETER SUCKER! YOU LIKE LITTLE PERFUMED FEMININE PENISES DON'T YOU, YOU LIKE TO PUFF ON EM LIKE CIGARS DON'T YOU,SICK FUCK, STOP TOUCHING KIDS
Its a title, not a concept.
Admittingly very dumb (I think even our church had to remove Superbowl from its party ads) but not the same as a concept or action.
Theres one game Im thinking of where you could throw your shield. It was like ancient greek setting but I cant remember the name
Eh, I think its fine. Its not even that much work i imagine. Just slap boobs on the males and remove them from the females. Not too hard.
I think its alright and its not like the delayed the final game for it, they are just adding it later. Its what they wanted to do
/v/ does this stupid shit too. Just look at this thread. This is a thread about complaining about the SJW morons who talk about irrelevant shit in video games.
Instead most people are just talking about gender.
My point was if they're going to copyright something like that then I wouldn't be surprised if they copyrighted the shield throwing. Also,
>implying Captain America doesn't throw his shield
>implying that isn't one of his signature moves
>implying Mahvel isn't a bunch of greedy bastards
>tfw 50 years from now all art and technology will stagnate because you won't be able to make anything without some faggot millionaire siccing his Lawyerstein on you to sue you into oblivion over some perceived infringement.
I'll still be alive in 50 years
This is what has gotten us into the current mess with Anita Sarkeesian and the SJWs running amok in our once-fair industry. If you like companies pandering to a crowd that has absolutely zero interest in video games, then you can sit down and shut up if you feel like it. However if you're pissed off that people who have no right how to tell others what to do in an industry that they have no idea how to run, then the line has to be drawn somewhere.
>I remember that I was convinced that Specter Knight is female.
Me too. I mean Specter Knight looks pretty feminine already, I'm not sure how the female version could look any different unless they give her giant tits and pigtails.
>Shield as your only tool
>Works alongside Shovel Knight as his shield while he is her s
Also she's not the fucking player character so from a gameplay perspective, she probably shouldn't do anything other than support. She doesn't have a bow and arrow like Zelda did in OoT, so you can't really make an excuse like that.
Sony also copyrighted ads that play during a video game iirc.
Just because a company copyrights something doesn't mean others can't use it, they just have to pay a royalty fee.
Maybe it's because that minority is far more outspoken, but if I were a fan of the game as well as a SJW, I'd be talking more about the game itself than the 'social inequality' in a fictional world. That's just my view on it.
Mario is gay.
He's a middle aged bachelor who never fucks the princess.
Are the freaks happy now?
Pretty much this. When's the last time you heard Marxists complaining about Recettear? I'm willing to bet most people can leave their political ideas at the door when they start up a video game.
The point is that people who make a big huff about "muh gay/trans representation" with videogame progatonists usually have autism, gender dysphoria, and other various mental illnesses and that their opinions and demands are fucking generally insane.
The point of the player character is that YOU are supposed to deliver the blows. If shield knight could attack, the final battle would only have been an endurance match that you had to wait out. It's not as fun as doing the work yourself.
YOU. YOU STOPPED SCROLLING.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TRACK FROM SHOVEL KNIGHT?
Propeller Knight. No contest. It's godlike and it honestly feels like a classic Mega Man tune.
The crazy thing is that the composer streamed himself composing this, and it only took 3 hours. Guess he was possesses or some shit.
Stop bringing it up OP. Talking about them only makes them stronger.
>using Steam as anything more than a game launcher and IM client
What are you doing? Just ignore anything that isn't the storefront, library, or friend list. You'll be happier.
Easily the campfire, or requiem for shield knight. The tracks are both so beautiful, dream-like, and almost guilty.
Here, have a remix.
It's like magic
Come on, Anon. He's a middle aged bachelor who works a blue collar job. He was probably living with his mother before going to the Mushroom Kingdom.
He's not exactly a swinging single.
>Shield Knight being a "damsel in distress".
The hell? Shield Knight spends 90% of the game dominating the shit out of the world. She also actively participates in the boss battle she's a part of. If somebody's calling her a damsel in distress, she's pretty damn far from type.
>Shield Knight spends 90% of the game dominating the shit out of the world.
Did you even play the game? The amulet is its own personality. The amulet magic even looks like the Enchantress even after the spell on Shield Knight is broken.
>implying they couldn't have been best friends anyhow
I haven't beaten it yet either, but I get a huge vibe from the opening that the two were the best damn friends and Shovel Knight had a lot of feelings for her that he never got to explain.
>/v/ false flagging SJW attacks now
Why? Are you THAT bored?
>literally not buying a game because there will be an optional mode that won't even change any of the gameplay.
I hate SJWs to death but something minor like this shouldn't let you from playing a game.
Clearly you've never seen the shovels they use in fucking military. You can split a man's head in half with one of those things.
Also, for anyone saying that Shield Knight should have attacked, her fucking official bio tells you that her fighting style was crushing her foes with her giant shield. CLEARLY that is not going to work so well against a giant magical manifestation of evil that can only be physically struck in its tiny head. Shield Knight can't jump high enough to strike the head with her shield, and Shovel Knight can't jump high enough either. In this situation, do you really think Shield Knight should be doing anything other than launching Shovel Knight into the air? Because that sounds like a complete lack of situational awareness and a great way to get everybody killed. Fucking retards.
So let's be honest, how many of you pirated the game?
How many of you plan on getting it?
I pirated it, and I'm thinking of getting it for the 3DS just so I have a solid platformer for me on the go. Mighty Switch Force 1 and 2 are the only downloaded games on my 3DS and I need to change that.
Tinker phase 1.
The level themes in shovel knight are great but I don't like most of the boss music. It's so damn busy in an effort to sound frantic that most of it just sounds like noise.
I love this track, how it not only follows the theme of boss battles being intense remixes of their stage themes, but it evolves into something grand during your battles and even works in the title theme to boot.
About Black Knight... so... do you think he's just some rival who's pining after Shield Knight and wants to surpass Shovel Knight, or is he like... Shield Knight's overprotective brother or something?
And he's one of three characters to use a shovel as a weapon in the game. Was there some order of Knights that used shovels that Shovel Knight deserted from in order to become an adventurer? Is that the source of Polar Knight's grudge with Shovel Knight? Or Black Knight's perhaps? Maybe Black Knight calls Shovel Knight a coward for more than just losing Shield Knight in the tower.
and here I was thinking that the ending to shovel knight was the devs trying to please feminists, by making shield knight sort of a hero at the end and her escaping and being okay at the end by her own will and control and not someone saving her, and shield knight having a man actually save him and take him to safety.
Don't read too much into it. They simply took the two common tropes, competitive but ultimately well meaning rival and old acquaintance lusting for power and gave them shovels and made them enemies.
I'd really prefer for them to leave it vague honestly.
Meh, I saw the ending as a classic feel good sort of deal.
The world is saved, the villains/dungeons are rehabilitated for the common good, and in the end our hero is reunited with his beloved under starlight.
>No, you have a mental illness because of your mental illnesses.
>this is perceived as an incorrect statement/grammar
>An actual legitimate video game comes out
>People still up in arms over SJW bullshit
When will it end, /v/?
>About Black Knight
Shovel Knight recklessly enters the Tower of Fate out of greed, and Shield Knight dies because of it. Shovel Knight then becomes a wimpy farmer. Black Knight's got plenty of reasons to be pissed at his rival.
It's also why Black Knight never explained the Enchantress' identity: to him, SK's a washed-up has-been. SK wouldn't be able to help so he doesn't deserve to know.
I didn't give the best example, I just felt they were missed opportunities.
King Knight is the only boss that gives you a motive.
The rest of the bosses are just "in the way" because of the gates and they "supposedly" took over the Kingdom wrongfully.
None of the townsfolk really seem to be ill towards them other than witty banter/puns.
Then again Megaman was pretty vague also
Since Dr. Light was the bad guy all along
>not turning Goofy into an MP battery by removing all his abilities except for the one where he gives you MP and just equipping him with a ton of MP accessories
They are kinda useless in KH1 for damage purposes, but at least Donald and Goofy had my back with heals, Aero and MP.
no like I asked the question and the guy responded like he thought i was a tranny, even though i referred to them in the third person
i don't understand why no one on /v/ can read
Jesus, why is everyone so fucking butthurt that she didn't use her fucking shield as a weapon?
The game makes her out to be a protector from the get-go and towards the end.
And if that's not enough, it's great that she's a protector in an ironic sense because she's using her shield to shield. No shovel as a sword or any of that.
Watch Me Dance
You can't fight it on the internet, but remember to punch SJWs in the face when you see them IRL.
>that one video where literal nigger jews punch that feminist to the ground and she gets arrested
How did he refer to you as a tranny other than the word faggot which has basically lost all meaning here anyway? You realize in the same post he said "No one cares if you HATE sjw shit" as in "you should stop bitching about trannies because nobody cares"
Now how could he say he doesn't care if you HATE sjw shit WHILE calling you a tranny?
Yeah I don't understand the lack of basic reading comprehension on this board either mate.
I thought the relationship between Shovel and Shield knight was great. The final battle shows that they really are equal members of a team, and don't shine nearly as bright when apart. The only weird thing is that Shield Knight is the only female knight in existence.
Haven't you heard? Putin personally executed all the gays, except the gay women he found attractive
>Already knows he's gay
What the fuck children his age are still playing with fucking toys. How in the fuck did he gain enough maturity to know hes gay ?
Either he's been brainwashed by his parents or this is a
There's nothing we can do about it now anon. Not worth getting
bentout of shape over.
Just probably some incredibly bold yet simple message like "Fuck Putin" or something.
Here's the video from a pretty good angle;
You can see the exact moment at about 7 seconds in where the protester realizes Putin's admiring her tits and she absolutely LOSES it. Funny as fuck.
The Flying Machine is so fucking good. It's one of those themes that makes me feel empowered listening to it. It has such a feel good vibe that it's as if I can do anything. Feels good, brah.
i'm getting tired of those fucking faggots, fuck em.
if nobody knew, you can download the soundtrack for free, and the arranged one and you pay for what its worth.
This only brings dim hopes for the future for me.
But atleast she got what was coming too her. If they forgot that everyone has the equal rights they are "fighting" for, not just them.
This whole ordeal also makes me feel back for the people who actually contribute and work and bleed their asses off to achieve that for everyone. But soon they will realize it will always be around, just like Racism, Sexism, and all that jazz.
They have their head shoved up so far up their own asses that they can only make assumptions and not even back up what they say.
Of all the games, why shovel knight?
Why cant they exclusively go after big AAA shit tha I wont enjoy.
After all, thats all they care about.
>Muh lack of gay protaganists, we just want one game.
>B-but I havent heard of that game where the protag can be or is a faggot.
Dont worry bro. Muslims will ake care of it.
I hate muslims, so I will proably be shot for not converting. But if you ask kindly, they will let you watch the fags and liberals be lynched too.
>B-but we were tolerant
>H-how did this happen when we aborted our kids and encoruaged gays. What does numbers have to do with war?
We lost, but given I hate both sides, it eases the pain.
Femen is no longer a problem.
They got funding from a jew, who cut their funding after finding out they planned to open a branch in Israel.
/pol/ collectively creamed themselves.
>See, I told you it was the jews
>it'd be nice to have that one little win
They only want a bite they say.
A little win they say.
Next time it will not be enough.
Every character needs to be gay they say.
IT WILL NEVER STOP
>Walking around with #yesallwomen on her shirt
>Instantly goes to rape and other buzzwords
>Ummm, ummm it's a spectrum (desperate bid to buy time, so she can think of an argument she started"
However, you missed the best part.
Watch it all until 3:00 if you want.
Or skip to 2:50 and watch till 3:00 for the best part.
>that last scream
I have an image that summs this up nicely.
>N-no. We want the hetro character to be gay, not just the gay characters!
>Shield Knight is a damsel in distress
You mean the character who is the final boss, and when she finally regains her senses helps you beat the ultimate evil, not to mention flat out saves your sorry ass and THEN walks away from it to snuggle with her husbando. That Damsel in distress? Shield Knight is a fucking boss, these whiny faggots can eat 1000 dicks.
>Leviticus outlaws homosexuality
>New Testament overrules everything in the Old Testament, doesn't actually have reference to homosexuality or homosexual sex, simply men with loose morals and male prostitutes
>By this, Jews should be homophobes and Christians accepting of gays
>Somehow Jews are more accepting of homosexuality than Christians
You faggots acted like rampant idiots when Sera was gay and called Cassandra ugly (even though she's beautiful). Now that she's straight you're having a giggle at the lesbians for the SAME DAMN THING.
Well whatever, I'll get the game and have me some butch knight waifu, just like I did in FEA.
>Christians accepting of gays
Jesus said marriage was between a man and a woman.
Also, Christianity said no sex before marriage.
Jews just encourage it to fuck up other countries. Much like this
Or pic related.
They just want to fuck up anywhere that isnt Israel. Gays are just useful idiots to them.
Actually no one cared about DAI.
A few people whined how the least hideous option was a dyke, but they were still mocked.
Cassandra is still hideous. I could probably store my inventory on that jaw.
>caring about DAI
>Buying it, or even wasting bandwitch pirating it
Jesus also healed a centurion's servant boy who given the time was also likely his lover, among other things.
Well because both you /pol/acks on /v/ and the SJWs are hating it, obviously it has to be good.
Pirated it and finished it a few hours later. It was a fun little game, not gonna buy it tho it ain't worth the price.
>He had a servant boy
>Therefore he was gay
Given translations, you cant really prove it.
Also you are mistaking him not punishing him, for approval.
Typical of faggots.
Incase you didnt realize, Jesus spent a lot of time with sinners.
Which he probably shouldnt have done, given people are just twisting it into thinking Jesus was ok with that shit.
The thing is, the faggots who go on about Jesus not hating gays, dont even know a damn thing about Christianity, and sure as hell dont follow it. Suprised they even care.
Holy spirit is part of the trinity (basicly it's on par with Jesus) this then descended on the disciples at pentecost, allowing them to speak the word of God, even in other languages. Meaning the apostles words are also canon.
It's on their fucking facebook. Just because mass media doesn't report it doesn't mean it isn't so.
HOLY FUCK. You believe media over a straight source from the horses mouth? How fucktarded can you be?
Why does it always have to be a NES soundchip when it's "retro inspired"
I mean I like it but at this point can't we just try other things
