    It's not like banning a darn thing because banning was never part of the equation.

    However, if people consistently make poor decisions in a certain circumstance, recommending that people avoid...

    The difference isn't necessarily one of class, though it is often used that way, but rather the difference between serialization and non-serialization.

    Though in fairness, it's not like we still...

    Kickstarter is a bit more complicated. Again, I certainly don't think it hurts the customer so long as the customer pays attention and does their homework.There have been some scams, and we should...

    I still have a problem with it because it encourages counter-productive development. If your product is more valuable when it is less functional and if people feel like you owe them more when you can...

    It happens. So what? That's a pretty low bar for normal. It is not part of a typical sexual experience. I did not intend to offend you by implying that YOU personally think prostitution is a positive...

    Agreed.



    Yes, and such was explicitly mentioned in reference to their announcement of Early Access games, to boot. They have a 14-day return policy, but I don't know the details and...

    Dark and edgy glamour is, in my view, a criticism not a theme worth celebrating and defending.

    You already decided what real sex is when you made arguments about sex being normal, and certainly...

    Intent is probably the wrong word, too, much like gamey. Intent implies that what matters is what the author is thinking ... but what people usually meaning isn't literally what the author is...

    Very well and simply put.

    Who said anything about children? You want children kept away from it, you don't let them play it. I certainly never said anything about the children and I'll tell you now--I'm pretty pissed off at...

    "I know you are but what am I"? Really?

    But I'll bite. You're right, hence I didn't use my day-to-day as a rhetorical model for differential defense of various gameplay details.

    If anything,...

    Which, to be clear, is not to suggest that games cannot depict sex work or for that matter anything objectionable whatsoever.

    It's meant only as a direct attack on the argument structure: Sex is...

    Look, if you want to argue about sex censorship in a game like GTA for the love of Bakklogg make the case for something other than prostitution.

    I highly doubt your day-to-day involves paying...

    With Early Access and Kickstarter and similar things--know what you're doing. You're doing some combination of speculating, asisting development, and acting as a beta tester etc. To do those things...

    If you liked Shadow of Mordor, you'll like the combat in this--it's much more like Shadow of Mordor than AC. It has very little in common with either game other than the combat system but the combat...

    It doesn't play very much like Assassin's creed. For one thing, it is a lot more linear. It doesn't have an open world in the sense we've become used to (though it's successors in the series all do)....

    I made the mistake of trying Close Combat. It seems like a nice idea! They have a great flight engine, and the maps are nicely designed for competition. But ... pretty much everyone seems to shut off...

    If you get tired of the music, you might think that situational selection would work ... but it wouldn't. You'd still hear the music too often if you played the game long enough. A LOT of modern...

    I really like Minecraft's score, on the subject of ambient soundtracks. It's simple, fitting, and I don't find I get tired of it or want to replace it.

    So you skimmed it, misunderstood it, and felt the need to comment. Rookie mistake, Epic.

    What I meant: Why are we getting all of this disjointed stuff that doesn't tie together neatly (why not...

    I think this is just about the best model a game like this COULD have. It's just hard to run a game like this. My issues with the model boil down to 1) Transparancy 2) Early adoption pressure and 3)...
