    89 Features Missing From The Sims 4!

    Not having one big open world is good. Sims 2 did it better. There's a lot of stuff I don't care about, or that is obviously gonna be in other expansions. No normal jobs strikes me as a bit of bullshit though.

    Tumblr Convention "Disaster" Unfolds at Illinois' DashCon

    Jesus H Christ, there was a stage combat session? Out of all the bad ideas in the world, I would rank giving tumblr users swords as a very bad one, especially when I've seen what classes as 'blunt' in the US. It takes a lot of good humour, determination and trust to be able to do hands-on...

    (NSFW) Assassin's Creed: Unisexity

    Maria? Don't forget all those female assassins that Ezio's club had in both Brotherhood and Revelation It's not like Ubisoft creates new animations, they're practically still recycling Altair's. (Some proper Sabre fighting animations would be appreciated though)

    Leaked Game of Thrones Season 5 Casting Sheet Reveals Multitude of Martells

    Why are they looking for a black actor for the guy who's probably the lightest man in Dorne? I mean if it's to diversify the cast more then I'd always thought of Obara as being darker skinned than Dornish, though not as dark as a summer islander. But Hotah is from the Free Cities, and it's...

    DICE is Considering Female Soldiers for Battlefield 4

    Why? Doesn't Battlefield constantly tout itself as realistic and authentic? So surely it should be the case that the game acknowledges that female soldiers aren't placed in front-line infantry roles. Even in the Israeli Defence Forces which does allow women into the infantry, they aren't placed...

    Grand Theft Auto 5 Review - People Suck

    I don't think you understand what the words 'valid complaint' mean. In fact a perfectly good example of a valid complaint about GTA V is - "I enjoyed this game's story and writing less because I had no reason to care on any level about the main characters in it." A complaint about GTA V...

    Grand Theft Auto 5 Review - People Suck

    Wow, Polygon must have really loved GTA V if they gave it 9.5 out of 5 stars. I think I see what bothered Greg, and it makes a lot of sense if he enjoyed the story less because of it. How are we meant to care at all about anything that happens to these characters when they are, at their...

    Recommend Me My First Drink

    Taking this out of context but: Dear god, stay the hell away from gin. An awful, evil drink is gin. The source of my first hangover and I haven't touched the bloody stuff since. As for my own advice, I'm a beer drinker mainly, but I dabble with other stuff on occasion and enjoy a single...

    LotR: Is Sauron just that big eye?

    Sauron was around in some form as the Necromancer of Dol Guldur, which he remained as for nearly two thousand years, being finally driven out of the fortress sometime after Bilbo passed through, though by this point he was ready to leave and extend his control over Middle Earth. In the...

    US Air Force Confirms Existence of "Brony" Squadron

    I think this thread contains about three or four reasonable people in it. Everyone else seems utterly concerned with attacking/defending a show - and the subculture it's spawned - with a zeal not seen since the third crusade. Both sides are stupid. One for starting an argument instead of...

    Poll: Do you like the British Royal Family?

    Being English, I do of course know the royal family. And whilst the Queen constantly tells me about how annoyed she is about yanks misusing her English - indeed, I hear she tells anyone who'll listen about it - I find them to be quite interesting people and am proud to have them around...

    Daily Mail-o-matic

    It's tragic when the Daily Mail used to make daring moves like this. Now this is more accurate.

    Poll: Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag what do you think you'll spend the most of the time doing.

    Knowing assassins creed, I'll probably be Micromanaging. Can't wait until they do the spin-off; Accountant's Creed.
