    I'm sad now. I was really hoping they'd turn out to have been on the level.
  2. I've never heard of this sort of thing before,...

    I've never heard of this sort of thing before, but my gut reaction is. . . How could one ever expect to turn a comment thread into content? Would it really be faster to sift through peoples' comments...

    Didn't mean to be directly involving that comment in your argument, really. I was more surprised to see that this project, that has so much bad press and that I personally have so little confidence...

    Areal still has $32000, more than half of its target, and three weeks to turn public opinion around. I think there's a good chance they'll make it. In many ways accusing the project of being a con is...

    People keep saying that. They have nine people listed on the team, there's kickstarter's fees, they presumably pay some kind of tax, they're going to have to contract out bugtesting if nothing else,...

    Good point. An exception to the way game narratives work that I had completely forgotten. I think you'd agree it's still an exception, however.
  7. I have absolutely no problem with multi-platform,...

    I have absolutely no problem with multi-platform, as long as the PC version is functional and can be played with a mouse and keyboard. I think that's the least of the problems. Also, there are going...

    Areal promises the moon. And they only want $50000? I can't imagine it'll work out. On top of that, some kickstarter rewards include weapons and items that won't be in the game.

    Everything...

    I'm not saying he's good. I'm saying he's published dozens of books and presumably has taken a writing class. The problem of people creating and enjoying terrible fiction is endemic across every...

    Yeah. . . traditional writers don't necessarily have very healthy attitudes. Or produce quality writing. In fact, all those things that the New Statesman piece accused games of? They could almost...

    I cherish the idea that that guy probably thought they were being sensitive. In my head he's scratching his head and asking "What do women do when they aren't being raped?"

    Rizlar: Yup. I loved the game and enjoyed the combat, and if I could come up with a single excuse for that bossfight, I surely would.

    I only ever played the enhanced edition, but I seem to recall...

    Well, first of all, a second reading of that first comment told me that I'd completely misunderstood it the first time around. Secondly, I still don't get, or don't agree with, your separation of...

    Gwathdring, this-or-that violence not being worse than other violence: I'd argue is. Fictional violence directed towards a group that's especially vulnerable, exposed, and all too often thought of as...

    I didn't really think she separated those games or what happens in them. She says: "This kind of misogynistic behaviour [killing prostitutes for fun] isn't always mandatory. Often it's player...

    I agree (with both you and her, I guess?) that the brothel level isn't necessary, and that it's a clumsily applied example of an unpleasant trope.

    It's also rather disingenuous on the part of the...

    Man, I was pissed when Sarkeesian lumped Dishonored in with GTA and Saint's Row. In Dishonored, you sneak through a brothel, can't interact with the prostitutes apart from knocking them out/avoiding...

    Not sure if it's the same thing, buy I've run into a problem with how the game plots moves for you. When I select the attack order and target an enemy unit, my unit moves up to them and attacks; but...

    Here are a few tips that I think would have helped me when I started playing:
    1)You have to explore and expand really fast; the whole game can take place in thirty or forty turns.
    2)Mana is...

    I really hope you don't feel picked on, Gwathdring.

    I wouldn't really argue that the pricing of games is about objective fairness. What I mean is, it feels unfair to pay a quarter of your paycheck...

    Exactly. The most interesting complaint about GOG's region pricing I've read was someone who lives in Romania, where the average income is incredibly low (apparently about a third of the average...

    Wow. I hadn't heard of the post about Tali's sweat before. That was bizarre.

    But yeah, as Serenegoose says, teenagers and manchildren can get a bit weird about relationships (or the idea of a...

    Gosh, Cradle looks good. Hoping to release in summer 2016 is a bit of a wait, though!

    Also, I got the developers are all fresh out of school, which worried me. Did I just miss their resumes?

    That video by Moviebob is, indeed, very interesting. Although one thing I found problematic was his lumping in of 'feminine is evil' tropes with 'gay is evil' tropes.

    Still, his message that pink...

    The alpha is very promising, but as AshEnke says not really a ton of fun to play (yet). For example, the random generation of levels is currently producing some cakewalks, some functionally...
