Was this game and mascot actually bullied by xbox halo dudebros as some youtubers claimed? (wont specify who exactly because fuck e-celebs)
I think it was just console warriors that wanted to dismiss any Xbox exclusive.
no, it was just ignored
on GameFAQs at the time I remember Sony and Nintendo fans mocking it. I don't really remember how the Xbox fans talked about it
>>9745150This is it largely, Blinx wasn't a killer game but it's certainly a good one. Shame the second one dropped a lot of what made it stand out.
>>9745140I really wanted to like this game but sadly it sucks. Wish it wasn’t so.
People now act like it was supposed to be the next huge mascot and ms paid a bunch of money to make it happen but it's all bullshit. Game is fucking unplayable tho because of inverted camera btw
>>9745178You can learn to play with different cameras if you try
>ex sonic devsnever pay artoon to make a game
It's a great game of you haven't played it. Has very strong Nights vibes which I didn't expect
>>9745140this shit was not even a blip on anyones radarwe literally had an xbox at launch & i never played this game until last year
>>9745140My only friend that had an og xbox used to shill me this game like it was the best thing since slice bread.
>>9745140Actually recently replayed this game and got about half way through before dropping it. It's a mixed bag. All the time mechanics are really cool but holy fuck does the game's actual platforming suck ass. Honestly the rare game I'd love to see a remake of because it has so much potential to be a great platformer.
It wasn’t bullied because it just wasn’t talked about at all. I played a chunk of it on a friend’s system. I remember it being pretty okay.
In elementary school my second grade class went to some presentation fair held by in another classroom of fifth graders. Each fifth grader had their own presentation at their desk with their own diorama and materials. We would all proceed in a snaking line through the class looking at each student's presentaiton. One kid was doing his presentation on adrenaline and showed me and another kid Halo and Blinx, saying "Look at these two games," and asked which one is more bad-ass and exciting. He told us Halo was and that obviously Blinx wouldn't get you pumped or excited to play because it is a baby's game. The kid I was with agreed and I felt bad because as a little kid Blinx looked more appealing to me but I didn't say anything
>>9745140>mechanic that forces you to avoid 90% of the collectible itemsGame has soul, but that's about it. It has too many problems that get in the way of enjoyment.
>>9746829I'm not sure how people got memed into thinking Master Chief was cool, desu. He looks like a dork in a paintball mask.His armour doesn't have any kind of satisfying chunkiness to it, or that sleek, stylish kind of look you get in Japanese designs. It doesn't look particularly high tech like an Iron Man Suit, or grungy like a Star Wars design. It's just kind of nothing.
>>9746884Lol literally my thoughts. The best moments Halo ever had, moments that attempts to bring depth to lore and universe are the ones without him. Like Halo Reach, Arbiter in Halo 2, average joe cast of ODST.
>>9745140conker and banjo
>>9746884calm down weeb
it's actually good too
>>9745140What? No, it just wasn't a good game. That sounds like furries playing the victim about nothing.
Not sure why zoomer YouTubers come up with all these weird little stories for things they were barely even alive for. Blinx was in Xbox Official Magazine hyping it up like typical MOVE OVER MARIO shit but that was about it. Barely a blip on the radar. Microsoft really wanted a kid friendly character for their system but no one cared and kids just played Halo anyway. If you played Halo and Dead or Alive and Project Gotham then you probably didn't even know who the fuck Blinx was, let alone bully people who liked the game. In retrospect it's admirable how much money MS sank into trying to make the Xbox viable in Japan. Didn't work whatsoever but there sure are some great Koei and Sega games on the system. The system was just too damn huge and ugly by Japanese tastes to ever work over there.
>>9747978Basically any generic power armor character is cooler looking than Master Chief. Crysis guy is cooler looking. Haze guy is cooler looking. Master Chief is a dork. Just saying.
They had this on a Xbox demo stand in my local Toys R Us when the console came out, apart from that I have never seen this game or heard anyone talk about it either good or bad
>>9746884>Waifufag is trying to tell us what is cool and what isn'tLol. Lmao even.
>>9745140I played this as a kid and thought it sucked bigtimeits bizarre how people still talk about it and try to act like its some kind of hidden gem now
>>9750729I haven't even seen that anime. It's just an example that popped to mind of cool power armor.
>>9745140Tried it on a hacked 360, controls made me barf.
>>9748000I miss when game mags were fun
>>9745140Had this game as a kid and I thought it was shit.I used to love basically any game as a kid too so that's saying something. If it was a game, I would play it and pretty much always have fun when I was a kid just because I loved games that much (I still do, its just I have higher standards for what I spend my time doing now), and I still didn't like it so that's got to say something I guess.
