    People like being right. Unfortunately, not always everyone agrees that you are right, and in that case you go on a pursuit of having a good feeling of being right, which is through arguing.

    Probably because people pay him attention.

    He keeps talking about RPS articles, which is the same thing as promoting them, so obviously he does like it.

    Or he's taking payoffs from the hivemind.

    So this is kind of like Wikipedia, which works entirely on the basis that people like to prove other people wrong?

    No, this is more like Wikipedia, where a consensus of collective ignorance is thankfully held up by the ceaseless battles between raging egos.

    It's more like the Talk:Aluminium page of wikipedia.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Redox used to start about fifteen threads a day* about how bad and unpopular Red Orchestra 2 is with similar accusations of RPS promoting it for underhanded reasons.

    *(Might be an exaggeration, but there were multiple threads.)

    Turns out The Verge does RPS better than RPS. Same article with content in place of PC elitism.

    From The Verge -

    "In one example of the latter, John Walker of Rock Paper Shotgun aptly notes the theme of console-exclusive DLC announced prior to a game's launch at this year's expo a worrisome trend where companies seem to suggest that consumers should not only accept the fact that game content is being purposely withheld and sold to them at a later date, but that they should be excited about it." http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/8/307...ind-them-at-e3



    Ok. I'll try and explain this in the nicest way possible so that the journalists(?) with a hit count meter understand.

    DLC is dlc.
    It doesn't matter if the developers announce it before release, release it on day one of release or day 40 after release. You've already bought the game new so what does it matter?
    You've bought the game. The developers want you to spend more money on the game that you've already bought.

    And you (the gaming press), all of you bloody promote it.

    So stop complaining or don't post articles on dlc.
    If it gets you some hits, then carry on. As I suspect you will.

    "...a worrisome trend where companies seem to suggest that consumers should not only accept the fact that game content is being purposely withheld and sold to them at a later date, but that they should be excited about it." http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/8/307...ind-them-at-e3


    Again, just type 'rockpapershotgun dlc' into Google.

    They're not promoting it. They're reporting on it. Again reporting on... oh I don't know, Moon Nazis (since that's topical) doesn't mean that the publication endorses Moon Nazis.

    Out of all the many and numerous opinions put forward by this website, why have you got your knickers in a twist about this one, Rii? I'm genuinely puzzled. This can't be the first one you disagreed with or thought was badly written?

    If this isn't the first time you've posted links to other articles you thought dealt with a subject better than RPS, my apologise.

    Also, I don't get the snark. Has John Walker personally insulted you or something? Or is that just the default tone for when you interact with people?
