hey there, mr walker. I post here in the hopes of reaching you personally and most of all amicably.
I totally understand that a lot of topics in the gaming industry (and beyond, probably) annoy the fuck out of you, especially with the latest addition to the team, even if its not the core team (I mean cara, of course), being used as an excuse to complain about you, women in the gaming world and RPS "decline in quality" (which I heavily disagree with); but you always seem to pick up a "hot topic" and complain the shit out of it.
now, Ive heard a lot of people complain about you or your writing or both, I havent read too much of your stuff so I have no real opinion on this. (my reason is that most of the things you write arent necessarily on my list of interests for reading on RPS), however I am interested in your thoughts on it all. I know you post your opinions a lot on the main page, but here you dont really have to pay too much attention to readers or somesuch.
I offer you a place to vent that is not the main page!
Tom "QuantaCat" De Roeck.
note: I will have anyone being nonexcellent removed.

I'm really not sure what it is you're asking me to respond to.

well, it seemed like you needed a space for venting really. also, you also seem to pick topics that are highly hot at the moment. it almost seems uncanny. do you really get annoyed at all of them? (because personally, I cant muster any feelings for DRM whatsoever, nor did lucasarts closing hit me that much even though I loved the everliving shit out of their games) there must be something everyone currently seems obsessed with and trying to cause shitstorms that you simply dont give a shit about?
essentially, Im interested in person john, not journo john. if there is a difference.

do you think Im trolling john? do you think Im trying to critisize him in some way?
the answer is no. now if youre so hellbent on disliking "such arguments", then get out.

I'd very much prefer not having to wade through your pieces on social justice to get to news about games.

Am I getting told off for noticing the thread shares a title with a movie?
04-04-2013, 07:35 PM #13
no for posting three useless posts. so please either contribute or wait until you do.

The first post was not useless, if you don't understand the significance of the comparison to making a piece of supposedly personal letter public then I suggest you ponder on it a little.
The second was worthless, the third was asking why you told me off which itself of dubious worth.

youre not a fan of arranging things yourself, even if youre not appointed anything, dont you?
also, who says its self appointed.
goddamnit. I wanted john to post. I probably was too unclear what I wanted.

The language is a little broken, I imagine some meaning was lost.

yeah, its like assuming they just appear in stores. or interwebs.
@helio: yeah, I guess. typing all of this shit on my phone is no fun.
