"HAHA, Public enemy of butthurt fannies. "


Origin (long dead developer of Ultima and WIng Commander) made a point of including a location in several of the Ultima games where children attack the player, forcing the player to kill these children whether they wanted to or not. And they did this in spite of (perhaps, to cause spite) having received negative criticism for allowing the player to be able to kill children in the first Ultima title where this was included. (Ultima 4, I believe) #7.3

Everyone has their good points. I'm not a very good player either. If someone is shouting me out; I can give out some doozies.

Related video is a close approximation of my reaction to people attempting to trash talk me. #1.1.1

Steam has a sub-culture of Bronies? I don't really get the appeal of MLP personally. Someone sent me a link to an episode but it's just not my jam. I'm more of a fan of anime more than anything else I guess. It's just rather bizarre to me that males would be interested in such a show.

On offensive types; I have no real issue with them. I'm rather old and crunchy; so I've heard it all before. People like to shock other people with their "edgy"... #1

Y'know. If you told me in 2004 that Raiden would be cooler than Dante; I would've said that you were out of your mind.

Just think about that. We live in a world were Raiden is cooler than Dante. It's like a portend to the apocalypse. What a world we live in.

Also, good blog. I'm just glad that Platinum Games were able to salvage the title and make it at least enjoyable. Platinum was never really strong when it comes to the story-telling depar... #1

Gamecube was a console for the "hardcore" as you can see that the power was comparable to the other systems at the time. It was also the console were they put in the most risks. Super Mario Sunshine was a risk. Metroid Prime was a risk. Windwaker was a risk. I recall back in the good ol' days when people were dead set against a cel-shaded Zelda or a first person Metroid game; only for those games to become classics in their own right. They also didn't follow the online route... #2.2.4

Ubisoft's actions have been irrational of late. Here's some quotes.

"We want social, we want all the things that exist on PC to be possible on a console. We want the mobile capacities to play short-term and to play from anywhere you want."


"Actually you need both, because, in our world. the fact that you can be immersed in new worlds with NPCs who can be emotional will help you to get into those worlds and be im... #4

Have a bubble. You're totally correct that the news has more influence on glamorizing these type of events than video games do. #2.1

I think some people/sites are re-evaluating their own internal rules after the Aliensgate scandal. Nobody won out of that mess. #1.1

There will be a lot of pain. Games are no longer recession-proof. Sales numbers are down and the triple AAA games aren't making bank. Only the established franchises are and the rest of them are bleeding to death.

The signs are everywhere. When you see heads of industry turning tail and running away; you know something is up.

Cliff is gone. The two Bioware doctors Doctors Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk are gone. Miyamoto has stepped down from head of game d... #9.1.3

Watch Dogs has been in development for a little while now and it looks like gameplay footage. However, I will remain obstinate on the face of it until I see it on shelves or I know someone that has played it.

Can you trust the developers to provide a game that is indicative of the quality that has been presented? Can you trust the media whom the publishers have gagged with NDAs and review embargoes? Can you trust your fellow gamers to give a non-biased view on the game?

"3. The controller isn’t wildly different

Is it unreasonable to expect a new controller shape, like a ball or a mug? What happened to being inventive? This isn’t the Sony I know."

I'm sure it's a joke article parodying various other articles that make absurd reasons of why they aren't excited about the PS4 or disappointed or whatever. It's not that bad. I just wish that he/she elaborated more on the reasons and make it really absurd. #2

I'm slightly paranoid about that. Can you blame me? It's like people have completely forgot about Aliengate. I don't want to be Gearboxed.

@Bumpmapping The Witness showed the world. It looks great but no actions done by the avatar. It showed a couple of puzzles and how they move but I didn't see a character moving or anything of that sort. I'm sure the Witness will release more when time goes on but until then; I will remain on the fence. Deep Down was an... #3.1.2

Show some real game footage. No cutscenes or any of that. Just in-game footage. I saw none except for the Knack demonstration on the PS Vita. #3

I have to admit that I enjoy Quantic Dreams' output. However, I don't agree about his view on technology being the only way of expressing emotion.

He uses cinema as an example to show that with the advent of technology; films became better because it had colour, voice acting, sound, HD formats etc. That's not necessarily true. I can think of a number of black and white films for instance that curb-stomps a lot of modern films these days.
