    I disagree. Yes, Bioshock Infinite has multiple themes that it explores, but those have never been what Infinite has been about. Bioshock Infinite is the story of Booker and Elizabeth and little more than that. It's about the relationship between each other, their reactions and opinions of the...

    Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review

    That's the thing. Issues in games are often issues if you perceive them as such. You say that the music and landscape turn grinding into something you'd do without any complaints, but she might not perceive the music, the landscape or the tediousness of the grinding the same way. She might also...

    Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review

    (My bad, I missed that part of your post. I'll comment on it here.) No no, absolutely not. I'm not saying get out at all. I'm saying that you should always read multiple reviews if you're unsure about the quality of a game, because these things are highly subjective. Her review might very well...

    Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review

    If you're a fan of Ghibli, then this should already be the game for you. Hating grinding, I went into this game anyway and I'm really enjoying it so far. It has a crapton of grinding, but it has this uncanny ability to turn this into a fairly satisfying game. The story is thin, but Ghibli have...

    Jimquisition: Accepting the Isms

    Eh, rape (or assault) of males has been used as a source of comedy for decades. It would surprise me if people did notice and discuss it. Also, despite the many rapes that don't get reported, it's still far less a problem for males than it is for females, so nearly all effort goes into...

    Jimquisition: Accepting the Isms

    It seems I've been successfully avoiding bad sites, because no matter where I look, these ism's are always pointed out and discussed to their fullest. The gaming industry does seem to address these issues properly, with only a vocal minority screaming murder and denying everything. Not a...

    Critical Miss: Top Five Games of 2012 #3

    Medbay is the second key to beating intruders, really. You still need to maintain the shield and weaponry section of your ship in order to beat the enemy ship, all the while battling intruders. Maxing doors is slightly more important than medbay, because suffocating the enemy, while they're...

    I beat Katawa Shoujo and I recommend it

    Rin's route was an emotional rollercoaster that overshadowed every other route for me. I find her path to easily be the best written route of all, with Hanako/Lilly a somewhat close second. Trust me, there's a reason why Rin puts you into such a mindset, a reason why so many people love Rin's...

    Games with great story but bad gameplay

    Yeah, the gameplay is intentionally made to mimic the average modern military game. Creating something unique that was fun to play and different from all the other games would have completely missed the point. It saddens me to see that so many people completely missed the fact that it was trying...

    The Narcissism Test

    The test is not well designed and will not provide an accurate indication of an individual's narcissism.

    Your personal biggest underrated game of all time

    They're not crappy at all, in fact the controls work pretty flawlessly. They're responsive, the tug does stand out very well and what you said rings entirely true. And yes, Ico is severely underrated.

    Your personal biggest underrated game of all time

    I agree with everything except the story, as that was beyond awful. It was unbelievably bland, way too much filler, predictable and the only reason why it took so goddamn long was because everyone in your group gets hit with the retard-stick the moment we return to the main plot. The tearjerker...

    Zero Punctuation: Top 5 of 2012

    Have you ever played an adventure game in the past? Do you even know what that genre, that had nearly gone extinct, used to hold? Do you realize that The Walking Dead is that kind of adventure game? The walking dead is a fucking game the same way Secret of Monkey Island, machinarium or any...

    Escape to the Movies: Cloud Atlas

    Wow, that was an incredibly horrible review. Not because I rather enjoyed the movie and disagree with their opinion(mainly because that's why they're opinions and I can admit the movie has flaws), but that was just really hard to watch. They do admit that it's going to be polarizing (and it is)...
