    Poll: 2015, The end of The Escapist?

    Honestly? Yeah, I think my involvement is over, at least. They've fired almost everyone interesting, the news section is now a mess of mostly irrelevant clickbait (relevant gaming news? Nah, tell me about how they found life on Mars for the 50th time), and GamerGate turned the forums into the...

    Mass Effect's Commander Shepard "Originally a Woman"

    Wow, really? Wow! You've opened up my eyes! I'll never express a personal opinion using hyperbole again! Thanks, BRP! See, now, THAT'S how you use sarcasm. ;)

    Mass Effect's Commander Shepard "Originally a Woman"

    What do you mean, "originally a woman?" Commander Shepard is a woman... Seriously, though, I don't understand how anyone could have possibly played with Dudeshep. Hale's VO was amazing, and the male voice actor sounded like a gym rat on sedatives. His voice was like nails on a chalkboard, I...

    Kojima Trolls Metal Gear Solid Fans on Christmas With Chicken Hat

    Repeated rape, forced pedophilia, and genital mutilation elevates a character above the status of "meany-pants." It's grave, adult content, and Kojima handled it in a tone-deaf way. I understand "the point." I just don't think it was a strong enough point to support the content. James Bond...

    Kojima Trolls Metal Gear Solid Fans on Christmas With Chicken Hat

    Well, goodness! I'm sorry I got her age wrong! I guess being in her 20s rather than her teens makes forcing her to have sex with a young boy and sewing a bomb into her vagina much less horrifying. And in the audio diaries, Skull Face encourages his soldiers to also rape Paz, which is where I got...

    Kojima Trolls Metal Gear Solid Fans on Christmas With Chicken Hat

    In the same game whose precursor involves a teenage girl being gang-raped by soldiers, forced to have sex with a young boy, and then have a bomb sewn into her vagina. Stay classy, Kojima.

    Valve Pulls Controversial Game Hatred from Greenlight - Update

    +1 for "The game is tone-deaf, Valve exists under capitalism and can therefore do whatever the hell it wants." I have nothing new to add there. However, I do find one aspect of this massively offensive... The DOOM font they are using for the title. I get that they are trying to evoke the...

    Broken Age: Act 2 Pushed to 2015

    3 years isn't slow for a small indie dev team. Kickstarter doesn't come with deadlines, that's the point. Breathe, people. Everyone on the DF forums who actually pledged to the Kickstarter is extremely supportive and greeted this news with a "yay!" and people on other websites who have...

    Why the Game's Title Should Have Been Dragon Age: Impositions

    First thought - "DA:I has multiplayer?" Second thought - "Mmmm... Gumbo..." Third thought - "Man, I really want to play DA:I's amazing singleplayer mode." Normally I get extremely bent out of shape about this kind of shit, but for once I don't really care. Maybe it's because, when this...

    Shigeru Miyamoto Says His Rivals Are Boring, Samey

    Well, then I must be young and naive after all! Or maybe this is just my first time commenting on a Nintendo thread. I am still not angry, and I don't have an issue with Nintendo. I wouldn't buy their products if I had an issue with them. I was just criticizing what I thought was a hypocritical...

    Shigeru Miyamoto Says His Rivals Are Boring, Samey

    Uh, dude, I don't hate Miyamoto. My hatred is reserved for Libertarians and people who are rude to waiters. I don't ANYTHING Miyamoto. I just thought his comment about the games industry being uncreative was hypocritical, because he is not a very creative member of the games industry. I love...

    Shigeru Miyamoto Says His Rivals Are Boring, Samey

    Dude, no disrespect, but I didn't understand half of that. Does that mean I'm old? Am I old now? Power Grip = Spider Climb Thermal Positioner = Truesight Seeker Missiles = Magic Missiles Gravity Boost = Jump Spell All upgrades you can earn by traveling through a dungeon and leveling up...
