    Heh, thanks for that. Run Your Jewels seems like a very Aliceffekt thing to be involved with, and the recommended videos led me to this

    Kind of a rant here, be warned.

    Rayman's painted in very broad strokes but it still plainly knows exactly what it's doing: this guy's the hero, this guy's his goofy sidekick, this guy's the comedy...

    Have you actually played any of them? Where have any of the games been "lauded as 'sexist satire' ", exactly? I struggle to see how you could begin to call 1 or 2 anything like that, much less praise...

    The people who made Saints Row would probably prefer the next Saints Row was not the same as all the others, actually, given one of the directors publicly came out and said "Yeah, Sarkeesian got it...

    Huh. For some bizarre reason I thought Ori and the Blind Forest was PS4, not Xbone. Nice to be wrong.

    Welp, Monogatari second season got me again. Bravo, Nisio Oisin, bravo SHAFT - I still have deep misgivings about it, but this is one of very few shows that would dare to do something as brazenly...

    Don't forget "If anyone wants a proper discussion then we can do that at my forum".

    If it happens, it happens. I'll probably stop paying any attention to reviewers then, much as I'd hate that. I read many, many times faster than any video can show me information, and I can gloss...

    Off-topic, but



    It's been written about before (and people have talked about it on this forum while I've been here). The general consensus is that Squenix board members didn't want Balthier as...

    AC IV is a beautiful port - no problems whatsoever. The Crew beta ran fine. AC Revelations ran fine. Driver San Francisco ran fine. What I saw of Splinter Cell Blacklist ran fine. EDIT: Far Cry 3 ran...

    FF XII polarised people, all right. It polarised them into 1) sane people who recognised its glorious, wounded genius, and 2) the usual wailing committed Squenix fans who basically want VI and VII...

    If I didn't already have Deadly Premonition I would have bought it. All other games are irrelevant, isn't that right Zach?

    XIII's combat was okay, but nothing compared to XII, which is still the high point. Of the ones I've played, anyway. XIII wasn't quite the abomination it was painted as but the 20- or 30-hour...

    Social Justice Warriors? Seriously? Is this going to be Steam's equivalent of fart apps, you reckon? Could you not just title it We're Wacky Indie Devs Having A Laugh, Innit and be done with it?

    No, I never stopped to think about anything I did in what I little I played of Deus Ex, since the writing was rubbish and the gameworld was an ugly mess. :P

    I tried, but I just can't watch it. An utter travesty compared to the book. One of the worst examples of Hollywood turning something vanilla and non-threatening I've ever come across.
