    Shovel Knight Review - Digging For Trouble

    It's really not that difficult. Sure, I died a lot, but frequent checkpoints and infinite lives make progression easy.

    The Pinocchio Paradox Debunked

    Yeah, the paradox doesn't really work because there is a difference between 'truth and lies' and 'correct and incorrect'.

    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Rape

    While film does gain controversy, it is fewer and far between, and it is usually for much more extreme examples (A Serbian Film comes to mind), but people are far less lenient with games. What's the difference between the two that constitutes this? I had a couple of ideas for explanation but...

    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Rape

    You're right, but in this case what is being discussed, at length, is a single 5-10 minute audio log. If it was something that had bearing on the game (like its short length) I could understand, but I cannot understand people getting so up-in-arms over something so small. What I want to know is...

    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Rape

    Okay, let's say it was indeed badly placed and designed. So what? It wouldn't be the first time something bad made its way into a videogame. Why is this worth making a thread about in particular?

    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Rape

    It's an adult game; they can put whatever they want in it. Why is it only video games that people get so high-rate about? Nobody would care if it was in a book, and probably not for films.

    When's the last time you read books like these?

    What exactly is the purpose of these questions? What are you trying to find out? I've read couple of plays by black authors. No novels com to mind. And I'm reading French book at the moment.

    About 25% of Americans Don't Know the Earth Revolves Around the Sun

    So the Big Band Theory is "correct" now? And the second question can easily be because of religion. Is the fact that the Earth revolves around the sun really important? What difference does it make if someone doesn't know?

    You got married at eighteen to a man who's old enough to be your father who you only knew a year? Well ... good luck with that.

    The Big Picture: Pink Is Not The Problem

    We segregate lots of things by gender; why not toys? I'm not saying they should, but that it is no real harm. Hygenic products are segregated, clothes, perfumes/ colognes, sports, games, movies, TV shows ... I could go on. What I'm seeing nowadays in the imposed breaking down of binary...

    PS4 Becomes UK's Fastest-Selling Gaming System

    Regardless? So the console wars means neither or only one will sell well? How does that work? And why is console wars in quote marks? It's simply a way to refer to the competition between the companies involved.

    I see what you did there.

    AC4... Am I being overly sensitive?

    Won't somebody please think of the whales?! Further information lest it counts as a low content post. I don't consider it sensitive, just odd that you'd be willing to be a pirate and all that comes with that, but whales are where you draw the line.

    Favorite horror game (and why)?

    SCP Containment Breach. The randomness of the game coupled with 173 created by far the most frightening game I've ever played.

    Six-Year-Old Upset By Lack of Female Friendly Avengers Toys

    So a toy is only female friendly if it's of a female? What's wrong with the male toys?
