    Wow, I feel like Jeff summarised my own views on this issue perfectly. There may be a valid discussion on ethics in game journalism that needs to be had, but GamerGate is not the way to do that. They'...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic new content on giantbomb you would like too see?. on the General Discussion board

    Patrick has discussed the potential of a series where he tries to work out how to play Crusader Kings II. There is no Giant Bomb content that would make me happier than if this became a reality.As muc...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic you guys worried about Ebola?. on the Off-Topic board

    I think if anything, the rhetoric and media coverage on Ebola has made me highly dismissive of its potential deadliness/contagiousness. Maybe I should be more frightened than I am.Nahhh.

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic ThatPinuino's Magic Lessons: Delving for Secrets. on the Magic: The Gathering board

    I am honestly surprised that Tarmogoyf hasn't been banned in Modern yet, and yet cards that hose it like Deathrite Shaman did get banned. It's just super busted and efficient, and doesn't really do an...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic Why Is PewDiePie So Blooming Popular?. on the Off-Topic board

    If you tried watching some of his videos and were going into them with the perspective of "this guys is insanely popular, and I don't know why, so I'm going to try and find out", then you're obviously...

    From movies, Darren Aronofsky. Just to see how dark and far-out he would go with it.From music, either Anthony Green, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, or Aesop Rock. Green would make some sort of delightful indi...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic ThatPinguino's Magic Lessons: Why Fetch-lands Are So Good. on the Magic: The Gathering board

    I opened two fetchlands at the pre-release, including one in my colours (played Abzan, got G/W fetch). Almost took the sting away from going 0-3 and dropping from the event. Normally I'd stick around ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic ThatPinguino's Magic Lessons: Why Fetch-lands Are So Good. on the Magic: The Gathering board

    As mostly a Limited junkie, I don't quite get why people are so excited about fetchlands - aside from the financial benefits, it's hard to not be disappointed when the rare in your draft booster is a ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic Metal band suggestion. on the Off-Topic board

    Russian Circles are an instrumental band, but make some of the best, most layered, most intense metal around. Their most recent album, Memorial, was really good, but Empros is their magnum opus.Other ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic The Unofficial Official NFL 2014 Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    I've been watching the Falcons-Bengals game. It's been pretty dire for the Falcons, and the score-line flatters them slightly; Cincinnati stalled in the red zone a couple of times and missed two FGs. ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic The Unofficial Official NFL 2014 Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    @azrailx: Time will tell whether the Titans are as good as they looked or if the Chiefs are really just that bad. I didn't watch the game, but if Jake Locker stays healthy and Whisenhunt's offence is ...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic The Scottish Independence Referendum Discussion. on the Off-Topic board

    I'm English and I have a fairly selfish reason for wanting the Scots to stay in the UK - Scotland always votes left-wing en masse, and so losing those constituencies would mean we'd get Tory governmen...

    @Levius: I dunno, I remember hearing a fair number of people say that Ghost Recon was the best 3DS launch game. I only got around to playing the game this year but really enjoyed it. Using Banshee to...

    @i_stay_puft: Power rankings are pretty much always total bullshit until you get to like Week 4. At this stage, probably the biggest determining factor for people's power rankings is a team's projecte...

  • Atlas posted a message in the forum topic The Unofficial Official NFL 2014 Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    Man, I dunno about my Colts this year. We've got the potential to post some gawdy offensive numbers, but I'm not sold on Trent Richardson at all, and our offensive line depth, especially the interior ...
