    Sir, You Are Being Bias Awarded

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...me-of-the-show

    So, Sir You Are Being Hunted was game of show at Rezzed.

    Collusion, I cry! Cronyism, I call! Biased back slapping, I bellow! Nefarious nepotism, I nod! Pernicious prejudice, I . . . err . . . parp!

    In seriousness, well done to Jom Rissignol and the Big Robot team, looking forward to seeing how this turns out but the fact that it seems popular with people at shows can only be a good sign.

    This is just like how on Saturday the guy organizing our netrunner tournament went on to take 1st place! Obviously rigged(!)

    I don't see the issue. As far as I know there is no Jom Rissignol working at RPS.

    Yea definitely deserved. Had a couple of really interesting conversations with the developers, and the gameplay looks fun, with a lot of emergent things which surprised everyone present. Heard tale of one guy who was surrounded by robots with no gun, so he got out a pipe and had a puff whilst he waited to die. Was a great stand!

    Sir, I am being excited about this game. Can't wait to get my fingers on this tweedpunk horror stealth shooter.

    Next year, Gunpoint wins indie game of the year on PC gamer.
    If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

    OUTRAGE! Oh... By the thrice beshitten shroud of Lazarus, I do constate outrage. I expect a front page article about this... this... Holocaust against video game industry integrity by the end of the day. Tomorrow at the latest (although I'm really busy tomorrow, and likely won't get a chance to sit down at a computer and read the site or any other news outlets, so technically, if it went up early Wednesday it'd be no difference to me). That Mandela bloke better not pop it in the next few days, or there isn't going to be enough front page space and he won't be able to compete with the rank scandal that is sure to emerge from this ordure.

    Either way, someone will be outraged.

    At a PC and Indie video game show? I think that question answers itself.

    I watched the whole session yesterday and it was funny as well as informative. At the end I was left with the feeling that I really want to play that game. Probably not quite as much Project Eternity but they didn't show any new stuff.

    I think it's a compound verb "bias award." "Being" just makes it a participle phrase such that the verb becomes a subject compliment.
    I think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardustís Music Sounds Better With You. Thereís lots of fog. --tomeoftom

    You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0
