    Mercenary Kings was a disappointment, to me. Some describe it as a mix of Monster Hunter and Metal Slug. I can see the comparison, but for me it just never worked. Large boring maps with obstacles...

    Unless it has since been edited, that's not what Surface was saying when providing that link.

    He wasn't trying to move "proper discussion" to his forum. He said if people wanted to attack/insult...

    I asked in the comments for the front page Spacebase article, but is there anywhere that tracks the updates, failures, and general skeeziness of Early Access and Kickstarter games? Some games...

    Bundle Stars is kind of like Indie Gala used to be, before Indie Gala went completely awful. They never have super amazing games. They recycle a bit much, but all bundles recycle these days. But...

    Or that feminism no longer, and arguably hasn't for a few decades, means its dictionary definition.

    The game is pretty, but the gameplay itself is not particularly great. It isn't that it is awful outside of its graphics. It is more mediocre than anything. It so obviously doesn't live up to its...

    I hate to say it, because it would likely mean the end of the forums as a place to say anything that didn't align with the opinions of John Walker and Jim Rossignol, but the RPS forum mods probably...

    The "Depression Quest is a poor game" debates happened when Depression Quest was first released.

    There were two things that came out of it. First, the bad part. In some circles people took...

    What I remember of Torchlight 2 is that the available skills are unbalanced. Some skills are just so good/useful that to not take them is to pretty much intentionally handicap yourself.

    Don't blanket blame Team Ninja for what Nintendo's Yoshio Sakamoto might have been responsible for.

    Disciples III Gold is Renaissance and Resurrection, which are the two that are often dirt cheap and bundled. It does not include Reincarnation, which is the remake that people claim is the good one...

    To be fair, part of the complaint is that ZQ was convincing sites to not give coverage to TFYC. If sites were siding with her and pulling coverage, then who was going to spread the stories that ZQ...

    I didn't mind John fighting for his causes at first, because I agreed with those causes. But over time John's methods became more aggressive, double standards appeared, and he adopted a "My way or...

    As you say, it is a feedback loop.

    Worse, it is a loop with two layers. Despite some arguments made by both sides, it isn't just people being polarized by the underlying cause. The arms race...

    BillButNotBen's recent conspiracy theory posts are attempts at jokes. It just isn't funny.

    Safety.

    MMOs are expensive. They seek large audiences to sustain them. Part of the audience that they target are the crowds that already play other MMOs, so they don't want to stray too far from...

    The Code was updated around the early 1970s, rewritten to be less restrictive. It was altered again after DC's complaints over Marvel running a US government-requested CCA-rejected anti-drug story....

    Dismissing or sidetracking an issue with jokes.

    Wazhack is certainly interesting. One of those games where you play a bit, die, get annoyed because of how you died, and play again anyway. After a while, you realize you've played for two hours.
