    I really like POE, but more for its potential. I wasn't all that engaged with the game for most of its running time, but then there's a plot twist at the end which made me realize, "Oh, so that's...

    This won't raise the bar at all. Established modders might benefit, but it will just flood the scene with cheap nickle and dime items, making it that much harder for new modders to get established. ...

    Gillen's older stuff was great and I generally think he was the best games journalist in the business. His writing was good enough that it transcended mere journalism and became criticism, in an...

    I'd say it was a Pyrrhic interview. My view of Moyneux as a game designer certainly plummeted, but my view of Walker as a games journalist plummeted along with it.

    Don't get me wrong, I think...

    If you ever want to lose faith in Wikipedia just go to a page on a subject you know a lot about. It will really make you question blindly accepting the stuff from articles you don't know anything...

    Well, I do find RPS' ads to be completely fucking obnoxious....so I guess the lesson here is that if you lie down with dogs, you're eventually going to get a bunch of annoying redirects to weight...

    Oh wait, there is another thread on the topic: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/member.php?17484-DenieD

    It's a relief that it's an ad and not a virus, then, I guess.

    Lemode-mgz Redirects

    I've been getting constant, random, redirects to websites with the address "lemode-mgz" when visiting RPS. At first I thought I had a virus or malware, but I researched it a bit and apparently its...

  10. British TV Question (help me identify a show)

    Something's been bothering me.

    I remember this British sketch show that aired briefly in America on either BBC America or Bravo (can't recall which) in the early 2000s. I think all or most of its...

    I prefer DS1, too. I don't mind DS2's levels not always making geographical sense as it's an inherently dreamlike and surrealistic game, but DS1's interconnected and labyrinthian world design blows...

    I think S.EXE, taken as a whole, is going to end up being a defining piece of games criticism in this era. So I think it's a shame that RPS closes and hides comments on half of them. It might be...

    I haven't really been following this whole thing, but I did play depression quest.

    Which makes me think that this whole controversy is kind of a shame as I think it distracts everyone from what a...

    I've always seen the Matrix as Gnosticism. The red pill is Gnosis, or the awakening to the idea that humanity is trapped within an alien "fake" existence that is hostile to them and must go home. ...

    I've thought a lot about this and come to the conclusion that it is Fellini's "Nights of Cabiria" (Le notti di Cabiria)

    That film never fails to make me happy. It's ending is entirely unique, in...

    Call of Juarez really pissed me off. It has one of the most brilliant, inventive, central conceits of any FPS ever (I wish more games would make use of a reliable narrator), but really mediocre...

    I don't think that makes for a very good novel or a very good character, though. Kvothe thus far is both implausible and insufferable. Whether the author intended him to be implausible and...

    Not sure about that. Kvothe is such an over the top Mary Sue that I keep thinking the author is doing it deliberately in an "unreliable narrator" type scenario, but I've yet to see it indicated in...

    I think it's a useful term, actually. It did have some slight sexist connotations when it was originally coined, but I think it's since evolved to become nothing more than a blanket term for novels...
