    If it didn't suck, yes.

    The problem with self-styled "Christian" projects is that they tend to suck. They get tons of allowances for being "Christian" and don't succeed by the same standards we...

    I'd say, rather, that it's criticism focused on media producers who largely cater to straight male perception of males. And it's equally true, if not much more so, that games tend to cater to...

    First, I didn't see him (or anyone else) claiming that sexual objectification of men is fine. I don't think you're deliberately straw-manning him, but I do think you are over-reading those posts. ;)...

    Sure, there's plenty of male "eye candy" and "objectification" of males. I think we don't pay enough attention to the damage this can do to guys. The idealized male body image is nearly as...

    Hostile takeovers mostly make sense with public companies. Tenders literally rely on public markets, and most game developers are private, not public. And proxy fights make little sense for game...

    This wasn't invented by MBAs, and there's no magic to it - a "hostile takeover" is just buying up a controlling stake in a company's equity. It would be an *extraordinary* move for a company like EA,...

    These Origin freebies last for at least a month, sometimes several. Just give it another try in a few days.

    For folks Stateside, might be worth noting that Amazon currently has physical copies of the PC version of Dying Light for about $30, which I think is the lowest price so far. The Evil Within is under...

    The patch made one small, hugely significant change: now you cycle through unarmed when you're clicking through weapon sets in combat. Since there's no subdual damage in the game, I don't get the...

    Valve didn't "ban" Hatred. Steam is a privately-held store, and Steam's managers simply declined to stock the game on Steam's virtual shelves. Referring to this as a "ban" locates the ethical (if not...

    I'm not following why gamers are to be considered "hobbyists". At least in the US, videogames are a bigger industry than movies, and I'd certainly never consider moviegoers to be "hobbyists". If I...

    What really bugs me about the animal behavior isn't just the ubiquitous irritation during gameplay, but the fact that Ubi keeps putting some of the most endangered animals on Earth in these games,...

    I'd be shocked if it doesn't hit PC eventually. At this point in the market, "exclusive" almost always means nothing more than "timed exclusive"...or, even better (for us), has meaning only in...

    The eagles are irritating, but they can be pretty easily avoided. They always make the same noise before diving, and they won't attack if you're not in the open, so just train yourself to run under a...

    Now that I've spent a few dozen hours in the game, I'm happy (...) to report that the animal life is even more irritating than I thought at first.

    I'm still playing the game on Hard, but god...

    That's exactly it. Maybe it's down to having a lot of outdoor experience, but sheesh, I find that the constant animal aggression dramatically lessens the game's verisimilitude. "Immersion" is such a...

    The biggest downside of getting a non-Steam copy is that Ubi doesn't host/serve files nearly as well as Valve. I finally got the game working - turns out that UPlay likes to give me corrupt...
