    SOPA Storms Back

    Thank you. Now I don't have to say it.

    Non-Violent Game Idea: Puppies in Hell

    Some people (not I) enjoy farming games or simulation games or god games, none of which have violence, implied or otherwise. I agree with your stance on violence, and how it can take many forms, but to imply that a game cannot be satisfying without some form of violence says more about your...

    Non-Violent Game Idea: Puppies in Hell

    He had me going until dogs > cats. Come on, have you -ever- seen a dog hug someone? They are anatomically incapable of clinging to things. Let's face it, "hug" means "hump" to dogs. Cats on the other hand excel at clinging to things...Painfully. It's the thought that counts, though. /**End...

    Poll: First or Third-person view in Skyrim?

    First person tends to give me tunnel vision, and hunting is one of my favorite things to do. There's nothing more annoying than tracking an Elk through wild-lands just to be blindsided by a saber-tooth tiger out of nowhere. I tend to do just as well with either setting, and I tend to prefer...

    South Korea's "Shutdown Law" Takes Effect

    I'm against excessive prohibition because it just winds up turning innocent people into law-breakers rather than actually preventing anything, but I can definitely see the sense in this law. It's a "law" the PARENTS should be enacting, though. It isn't the government's place to be a nanny.

    Zero Punctuation: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Are you joking? For Yahtzee, being immersed and forgiving flaws may as well be as close to his stamp of approval as any game is ever going to get.

    Zero Punctuation: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    I disagree. Would an MMORPG have to stand on the strengths of it's single player experience alone? It just -makes sense- for certain genres to have multiplayer or even a multiplayer focus. I understand your point about shoehorning in multiplayer where it doesn't belong, but let's face it: No...

    For the older gamers (10+ years of gaming), what is your GOTD (game of the decade)?

    There's too many recent games I haven't played for me to make a fair decision. For example: I know I will love Red Dead Redemption, but I don't have a current gen system yet to play it on (Proud member of the PC Master Race, here -- Just kidding). For the sake of participation, though, there...

    Zero Punctuation: Kinect want me to buy a new piece of equipment for the chance that some game might implement a system for waving to people or brushing curtains away? I am not sure that the Kinect really has any potential in gaming until it becomes more responsive. It's going to have to do way more than...

    Why do people think buying a game new supports the developers?

    I'm going to go with "misinformed". The usual troll tactic is to post a single inflammatory remark and walk away, watching the heated argument start and begin to fuel itself. This person actually defended themselves for one post and has made many posts in the past. Seems more like they...

    What could EA do to change you mind about using Origin - Old - Admins please lock

    They don't have to do anything, because I don't feel threatened by Origin in any way. In fact, I hope it becomes as good as Steam. I love Steam, and from personal experience, competition is ALWAYS better for the consumer. This has just become an excuse for fan-boys to find things to complain...

    Extra Punctuation: Sidequests Good and Bad

    If you needed Omnislash or Knights of the Round to complete the game, something is terribly wrong. I beat the game just doing what was required, with the caveat being that I would never run from a random encounter; No boss posed any threat to me. I was actually disappointed by how easy it was to...

    Is anyone else starting to get annoyed by Square Enix?

    Let me show you two games from massive franchises, after which I ask that you tell me which scenario you think Final Fantasy (Specifically, Versus 13) will fall under: The Last Guardian -- Developed for an ungodly amount of time, but overwhelmingly expected to be good, purely citing the...
