I wish you best of luck with your various projects. Are you planning on releasing any more games in the future?
Good to know, thanks.
It's good that you raise that point because I've been thinking about that too. Where I come from, apologies are not easily given. Apologize too often and they become so...

Indeed you did mention Tropico, didn't notice it.
You should give Banished a try though, I enjoyed it rather much. Sure it's somewhat limited in scope but considering its price point it has a lot...
Wasn't 12 Years a Slave nominated best picture 2 years ago? Inversely, when The Butler came out the same year it was panned as "Oscar bait". A nomination is nothing to scoff at.
I have yet to see...
I agree, hence why I said "the distraction that it causes". I'm not the one who wrote these articles, I'm merely challenging them for some of the reasons you just expressed.
Besides people can be...

What about Banished or Tropico? Both are excellent and/or superior to the two original choices.
Why not both?
And it's not the word or the apology that is necessarily problematic, but the mediatization or the distortion that is created between intent, message, messenger and reception and its...
I'm not telling Lindy West or anyone else invested in this discussion to shut up or apologize.
Not only racial tensions, but also tensions between gender, religion, nationality and many other communities or social groups.
I'd consider Lindy West a popular figure head of social justice....
I see no controversy in this thread, only discussion. As my topic title may indicate, this topic is more about the discussion of a general social phenomenon. Cumberbatch's particular case was only an...

That graph hinges on the assumption that the general public isn't mostly comprised of "jackasses". As far as I know, the jury is still out on that one.
I've come to dislike tropes, they have...
It's not that simple. Communication is a bilateral action, therefore responsibilities must lie within both.
A speaker cannot be aware of all the different sensitivities in his audience. Sure, if...
Yeah, I always found that a bit weird. If you take colour as light, then black is not a color and white is a color. If you understand colour as some sort of pigmentation, then black is a colour and...

I haven't seen the movie yet, but to be fair, Eastwood puts a lot of soul into the movies he directs. Gran Torino and especially Million Dollar Baby were both fantastic movies.
The war propaganda...
I very much agree with all what's been said above.
What irks me though is that respected media outlets are creating an environment where people who are only there to arouse ire are allowed to...
Benedict Cumberbatch, best known for his role as Sherlock Holmes, recently came under media crossfire for uttering the words "coloured people" while speaking out against the under representation of...
I'm getting weaker by the minute, I may give it a shot.
I didn't hate Dead Island, it just turned out to be something else than was...
Thanks a lot for your reply.
How is the open world and the exploration? I was wondering if the game was very linear. I don't mind some scripted sequences if I can freely roam about in between the...
Well that's quite a bummer really. I was looking forward to a high production value, polished, open-world survival game with an immersing story and good characterization.
It may seem minor, but if...

I agree, everything about this movie is simply brilliant, from the performances (Joaquin Phoenix is just mind blowingly good in this movie), to the visual style and of course the well executed story....

After many hours I completed everything with every character on normal mode (except The Lost). I completed the post it note on hard mode with Isaac and that's about it.
I kinda bounced off of...

You don't let someone referee a match who is clearly invested in one of the teams. It's as simple as that. Wikipedia are aware that their articles are often tainted by the ideological battleground...

Ah the wonders of globalization. Trying to sell to a global public is alright, but trying to buy from a global public is the worst crime ever. Except maybe if you're the one selling, then it's OK to...

Yeah Renegade was awesome. It came out a couple of months before BF1942 and did some of the things better than BF.
I'm terribly sorry for you and as much as I dislike responding with a quote, I find Epicurus to be quite fitting in this situation:
“Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come,...
