No, see, only indie games are fun. </sarcasm>
Perhaps. Unfortunately the fact is that they didn't, so we'll never know. Also Steam was terrible on release and everybody hated it.
Steam does that these days, but when it first came out, it...

That's ultimately my problem with most of Walker's writings (and Grayson, before he left, was very similar) - while those articles do attract their fair share of scum, Walker seems hell-bent on...

How about you post the quote in its entirety:
Feminism is ultimately a socio-political thing that aims to level the playing field between genders in that arena. Attempts to level the field...

Was it exploitative? I don't know, for just pitching an idea and then having other people make it for you, that probably isn't that exploitative. Quinn was never interested in "talking" to them or...

Well, Walker has told people to "fuck off" before in the RPS comments section...

Quinn's personal affairs have nothing to do with TFYC and what happened there, so it's perfectly possible to separate the two.

Oh god, I've fallen upon my own sword! The pain is excruciating!

OH IT'S DOUBLE ON NOW! IT'S SO ON, IT'S OFF.
Keep powering your servers, I'm quite happy with my standard Windows desktop OS where an update in some random subsystem from 188.8.131.52.4 to 184.108.40.206.5...

Some legal definitions (like TEXAS WITH THE GUNS AND THE COWS!) might be so broad-scoped so that you can force it in there, but most of the less silly definitions note that it's aimed to affect...

I laughed out loud at that, thanks.
Christ, are we really equating internet threats with terrorism now?
Probably time to close the topic.

SHOTS FIRED. I agree that the Linux community is its own worst nightmare though :P

It damn well better be, because I hate Phil Fish and refuse to buy Fez because of his antics. I don't see anything wrong with disliking somebody because of their actions. Harassing them into the...

As I said in another thread - the overall tone was much better than it usually is, it's far more nuanced and (mostly) avoids that polarising language that infects the other articles that are similar...

The "be excellent" rule apparently only applies if you're not crusading from your moral high horse.

I'm saying that Kotaku take themselves seriously and want to appear like they have some journalistic elements or credibility. In other words, what you or I think is entirely irrelevant to Kotaku's...

RPS weighs in.
By and large not a bad response, although there are some hints of the 'polarising' attitude by focusing heavily on misogyny as an extrapolation of the hate against Quinn. That said,...

Nothing. People will keep churning out games, some of them will be good, most of them will be crappy clones or half-realised dreams. There's no real reason to intervene. The good will be discovered...

Yes you can - they're basically bloggers at this point.
While you and I know that, plenty of people expect them to be more impartial and objective in their reporting - and potential conflicts...
Actually yeah that's a good point, Create a Sim is fantastic, and the gameplay for what's there is actually pretty tight. It's just that there's less stuff to do.
08-09-2014, 12:51 AM
Ah, and now I see your problem - you're completely incapable of separating the issues. No actually I'll give you more credit than that - you probably can separate the issues but are unwilling to do...
Tough call, really. If you can get TS3 with some expansions cheap, I'd probably pick that. Between TS3 and TS4... erm... TS3 would be cheaper with better value right now.

GamerGate asks whether or not the games 'journalism' scene has any credibility or integrity when developers and 'journalists' are so close. That's a valid question to ask - although from where I'm...
07-09-2014, 05:57 AM
So, um... tell me, what else do you think is useless?
07-09-2014, 04:26 AM
Wow, blatant strawman right there. You do realise it's perfectly possible to condemn the personal attacks while also acknowledging that there's a question to be asked about the highly inter-connected...
