    Overwatch Promotes Bad Game Design

    1: The story of Overwatch isn't particularly important, and is only fleshed out enough to provide context to the setting. Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer shooter, so this is fine. 2: Holding time-limited events isn't exclusive to Overwatch: It's actually a fairly effective strategy for...

    Deus Ex Composer Teams up With Metroid Prime Dev For Mystery Project

    Metroid is certainly a possibility. If so, he'd most likely be working with/under Kenji Yamamoto, who's worked on pretty much every title since Super Metroid.

    Square Enix Confirms: No KH3, FF7 Remake This Year

    Looking through all the slides atm. According to slide 1 the intended audience is U.K. investors. This is odd though, since - correct me if I'm wrong - the U.K. 2017/18 Fiscal Year only started this month. Japan's FY2017 also started this month. America's FY2017 began in October however, so...

    Why Are People Against Personal Accountabilty For Individuals Who Behave Badly?

    Yeah, I suppose I understand where you're coming from. I mean, it's pretty much a given that making everyone totally equal is not feasible, nor is it actually all that desirable. There's always going to be a hierarchy - hell, humans tend to gravitate towards social/power hierarchies anyway due...

    Why Are People Against Personal Accountabilty For Individuals Who Behave Badly?

    You're confusing Equality of Opportunity with Equality of Outcome. The former is equality. The latter is utopian nonsense.

    Why doesn't Reddit have the same bad rep Tumblr has?

    It's just segmented nature of the site, really - the vast majority of Subreddits are totally fine. However, since each Subreddit essentially sets it's own rules and has little to no outside interference, there's always going to be a few toxic cesspits to avoid like the plague - r/TheRedPill...

    Rogue One - Why was Vader seem so much more impressive than Prequel-era fighters?

    Anakin being an ace pilot by the time of RotS is totally fine, since he's an adult at that point and had been fighting in the Clone Wars for a while. Anakin didn't need to have the 'vision of Padme dying' to motivate him towards the Dark Side, imo. Anakin was supposed to be a noble but...

    Rogue One - Why was Vader seem so much more impressive than Prequel-era fighters?

    That'd require something a bit more nuanced than a "Jedi good, Sith evil" mentality, which the films never stray from. It's a shame really: there's a lot of room for adding a few shades of grey to the Force. The old EU/games looked into this kind of thing sometimes. Not only that, but I'm...

    Rogue One - Why was Vader seem so much more impressive than Prequel-era fighters?

    Scientifically explaining everything is fine in a work of science fiction.... except the Original Trilogy was much closer to fantasy than sci-fi. The Force is a combination of magic and faith - both of which only work effectively when not explained in detail. He destroyed the mothership in TPM...

    Rogue One - Why was Vader seem so much more impressive than Prequel-era fighters?

    Midichlorians: putting a scientific explanation where it doesn't belong. Apparently training and wisdom are trumped by innate 'power level', thus totally nullifying the mysticism of the Force. Anakin: A reckless brat that remains so even as an adult. Sincerely believes that it's possible for...

    Outlast 2 Has Basically Been Banned in Australia

    Always nice to see our Government taking some initiative and doing their best to keep morally corrupting media out of the hands of grown adults. For their own good, of course. /s ... and as long as this country is run by the Liberal Party, this will never change.

    Jim Sterling reviewed Zelda BOTW today, then angry comments exploded, site down multiple times...

    To be fair, there's zealots in every fandom. The word 'fan' is derived from 'fanatic', after all. That being said, this doesn't surprise me one bit. People tend to get attached to what they like, and seeing others enjoying the same things brings a sort of vicarious pleasure, but also...

    Okay, who the hell was praising Dragon Age Inquisition?

    I've never played an MMORPG that would be able to stand on its own as a single-player RPG. Quite amusing then, is the fact that almost everything I've heard about DA:I makes it sounds like a single-player MMORPG. Mind you, this is just what I've heard: I never actually got around to playing...

    Scalebound Canceled as Microsoft and Platinum Part Ways

    The gameplay demos looked pretty good, but I also distinctly remember seeing massive performance issues with the E3 build. Perhaps Platinum just couldn't get a stable 60fps out of the hardware? Then again, maybe Microsoft suddenly remembered that Platinum's games don't typically sell very...

    The 5 Best Changes Pokemon Sun and Moon Made

    I've got a few criticisms to make after having just beaten the Elite Four: - While the game's story is quite good, the game railroads you way too much - destroying any sense of exploration and wonder. - Super moves, while cool, are just another gimmick a la Mega-Evolutions. - Pokemon...
