Re: randomness

On the topic of guns, I live in a nation that has the single highest gun ownership rate in the world. We are also 111th in murder per capita. In fact, if Detroit were it's own country, it would just beat Venezuela for second in murder, despite the fact that guns are 100% banned there. Also, Chicago...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

Again, that's not what I meant. I meant that games can be whatever their developers want them to be (Who am I to judge?) but they shouldn't be somethings (Pedophile Simulator 2015... Wonder if that exists). Who are you to judge? To say that Pedophile Simulator 2015 should not exist is to make a jud...

Re: So, Valve Pulled Paranautical Activity

Oh, and developers price their own games. Exactly. Valve allows developers to do what they want even if there is a clear inequality in what most developer do. Valve is complicit in the practices that they allow developers to take. By EA's choice to be greedy as fuck and not sell all the DLC package...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

I meant that games shouldn't be those things, not that they can't. They CAN AND SHOULD be whatever their creator intends them, and is capable of making them, to be. They can be... They are allowed to be... They should be... AND They are worthwhile to be... I want to be clear, what you have been say...

Re: So, Valve Pulled Paranautical Activity

There are many reasons to hate Valve. But being mean to developers isn't one of them. Valve has a track record of not caring about their customers, in quality control or fairness in pricing. Valve has a commanding position in this industry and they squander it to appease developers and squash consum...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

Games should not be regarded as art, they shouldn't try to be pompous, pretentious political crap that try to send a message completely unrelated to games to the player. Games can be made because someone wanted to develop it and others want to play it. Game can be regarded as art and they can be us...

Re: Hatred: The Game From God

Reading through the development page (And watching the trailer) I want to play this. It's so adamantly against games as art and such. Which is so fucking refreshing in this era. This game is so thoroughly edgey, that, it, in fact, embodies the very essence of the medium as art. It is in fact hipste...

Re: randomness

So, still looking for a positive game. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons isn't it. It's a beautiful game all about the themes of co-operation, helping others, and so on... but the world it's set in is cold, cruel, and has that decidedly Scandinavian touch of melancholy. You can clearly see that the game...

Actually, it is not true. At least one part of that statement is an assumption.

Also it is pretty much trolling when somebody uses a that kind of label in a derogatory tone.

Re: Silverfish Needs Plastic Surgery <3

seems like a spam bot to me. bot is looking for the terms 'plastic surgery' and is trying to bypass bot detection by pretending to make a sensible post. Check the profile, don't approve posts like that. Signatures don't seem to work here, but you should look at the guy's signature. It smells like sp...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

So, you are mad that they knocked half a point because the reviewer found it hard to appreciate some of the game's design? I mean, I guess the reviewer does put a lot of focus on things that you can say the reviewer subjectively didn't like. But that happens. Reviewing is, at least partially, a subj...

Re: Welp. Ebola is going to fuck us all.

We can't control the pathogen unless we can treat it. Treating a real live case of it, is the best way to understand how to treat it. The worse thing we can do, right now, is ignore it. For the people we treat here, we are improving and learning how to manage the disease. Unfortunately, however, the...

Re: I regret everything.

A crappy game developer can make a crappy game that I will never play. A crappy game's journalist could convince me to buy and play a game that sucks. The latter can have a more negative impact on me, so that is where my position stands on this situation. Who cares about the developer, I just want t...
