"No, but since the birth of my child I find I'm become re-sensitized to things. I'm more empathic and sympathetic, more vocal, less capable of dealing with fantasy violence, and more, much more,...
Did they edit the article, or didn't it explain why there are no comments? Being on vacation in Croatia.
Smartphone/tablet gaming isn't exclusionary. Nor is PC gaming these days, but maybe hard to get into. Even consoles have been around long enough that most houses probably have one, even if it isn't...
I think it's pretty clear from the article that the "death of the gamer" thing is referring to the fragmentation and mainstreaming of gaming to the point the the traditional "core gamer" monolithic...

I don't mind comments being off. It doesn't affect the article for me. (There are some articles where the comments are a font of useful information - but the ones where they degenerate into flame...

Ok. Eight Rooks wins the thread, and that flowchart sums up the whole storm in a (social media) teacup. So can we drop it now?
It's getting beyond a joke.
If you've been running windows as astandard account (which is admin, not standard user), is it painless to change it to a standard user account? I assume you'd also have to set up a new different...

I just got a free Samsung 8Gb memory stick, and it looks very stylish, is very compact, and would even work as a keyring.. but I can't really think of anything useful to do with it. It seems such a...

'quinngate'?!!? Jesus... all respect lost.
JessicaNorwood is looking more and more like spam.
i REALLY REALLY must get around to watching Grave of the Fireflies. I've been meaning to do it for years.
I tried the virtualbox thing once, but I found it too much hassle. Rollbacks don't work well with things like browser/plugin/extension updates or changes, or even simple things like bookmarks.

I also regret being forced to look it up. Though that was partly due to my own weakness in being unable to resist investigating the mystery.
I thought Anthile's sticky was fine.. though I didn't...
"All I can tell you is that nothing convinced me this whole thing was meritless nonsense faster than watching the behavior of the people that think it's important." This.
Plus what you said before....

This thread is so remarkably frustrating. It's incredibly hard to resist posting in it, yet to do so is to continue to encourage people to keep talking about it.
At the very least it has been a...
Having not played The Last Of Us, I wonder why nothing is like it.
Is it that unique? I'd penciled it in as just a very cinematic action game that seemed to be of above average quality.

I only watched season 1 of Heroes. I liked it a lot, but I got interrupted between season 1 and 2, and by the time I was able to go back to it everyone was complaining about season 2. So I...

I guess you might disagree, but imho Homeland was the perfect 1 season show. The whole show seemed set up for one climax, and then became popular so they had to extend it with another season. But...
"The only reason for a cover up is if there's something to hide."
Said all conspiracy theorists ever.
I do not believe this. Terming it a 'cover up' is a choice of language already implies...
@Drake Sigar: Wasn't there a massive fuss in the UK last year about Amazon, particularly related to their tax-avoidance practices, but also their employment practices?
AFAIK all my relatives in...
I guess people cared about Agent Coulson (or were supposed to) because he was was the one unifying character in all of the previous Marvel movies. Well, him and Nick Fury.
So I guess your mileage...

WOAH!! STOP STOP STOP!!!!
Quit after season 1! Seriously.
Season 1 of that show was absolutely awesome, but everything after that point just goes down and down and down hill.
AVG was really annoying with misleading warnings last time I tried it. I put it on my parents PC about six months ago because it seemed lighter weight than Avast.. big mistake. Within...
Amazon are unfortunately a necessary EVIL for me.
Twitch... I don't get it at all, so I will be totally unaffected. Slightly sad to see another step in the rise of the amazon megacorp though.
I'll take the middle ground and say that Wanted (and Shoot Em Up) was ok. It was fun, and some of the ridiculous OTT action was fun, but it was ultimately forgettable.
Case in point, I'd actually...
