    The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Review

    I wish I could get beyond the visuals... I love Link to the Past. Thanks for the review Jim! I'm trying to come back the The Escapist because I'm a huge fan of you, but it's difficult :(

    BioWare "Falsely Advertised" Mass Effect 3

    I wasn't aware that anyone was suing for false advertising. I would love to see any source at all you have on this. This story certainly isn't about a lawsuit against them for false advertising. Also I didn't equate anything to criticism, I was merely talking about criticism. Please highlight...

    Poll: Are gamers today too self entitiled?

    No gamers are not too entitled. The whole entitlement thing is just a media spin job in attempt to crush criticism. If you are a consumer and you dislike something about a product why the hell should you not say something? Does anything ever improve without criticism? If everything someone...

    BioWare "Falsely Advertised" Mass Effect 3

    It's pretty cool how corporations have convinced everyone that asking for what you want to spend your money on as a customer is 'whining' or something derogatory. I mean it's really convenient for them to be able to just do whatever they want, and if people don't like it they get told they...

    Internet Petition Demands Dark Souls Drop GFWL

    A corporation is not your friend. A corporation doesn't get hurt when you don't enjoy the things they create. When you go into a restaurant if you order food and you legit don't like that food and have a decent enough reason they go out of their way to make it right. Your analogy fails...

    There ain't no party like a Jim Sterling party! [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X0EjwF8o0g] You were right on the money as almost always Jim. :)

    Everyone has a valid opinion/taste? Don't make me laugh

    You either didn't fully read what I said, or didn't understand it, or I failed to properly convey what I meant. If someone was a genius and I could tell they were of course I would consider their opinion more highly, I never said it was an absolute. In fact I went out of my way to say it's not...

    Everyone has a valid opinion/taste? Don't make me laugh

    What a compelling argument, I can see why you act so condescending when you clearly are more intelligent and better at conveying points and understanding to other people, and take the time to actually listen to others and evaluate what they are saying instead of dismissing it offhand. I...

    Because we don't like to be murdered. Try putting some thought into questions that can't be answered after half a second's thought.

    Opinions are like farts, They all stink but everyone loves their own. Oh, But you said don't make me laugh....

    Everyone has a valid opinion/taste? Don't make me laugh

    Well let me start by saying there's some irony that people have brought up Roger Ebert and his film criticism as an example of opinion vs fact. Ebert's criticism is very specific in addressing this, by way of his review process. 1) When Ebert watches a movie, he asks himself "What is this...

    Everyone has a valid opinion/taste? Don't make me laugh

    You make a thread, you let people discuss it until it's expired. You don't act like a backpedalling douchebag and edit your OP so people don't know what the subject matter was.

    Everyone has a valid opinion/taste? Don't make me laugh

    OP maybe has no point, and has no reason for conversation... What is this all about? Is this a thread that you decided to stop because you didn't like what people were saying? (I'll read more posts and try to decipher the meaning here) -'So if someone who has only played one game...

    Everyone has a valid opinion/taste? Don't make me laugh

    The very purpose of this thread was to discuss whether opinions have any objective weight in the first place. I don't think denying that this is the case amounts to "bleating" anything.
