    Honestly the only part I don't like is the jarring break between produced documentary and video game. That's easily addressed by just avoiding all the videos until after but yeah.It's really cool that...

    I find it confounding this comes up because I somehow manage to find a ton of great games to play each year. Since I was able to really get into building a proper games library in 2006 and playing a t...

    Aesthetically this is fantastic but I have to agree that as it is it's thin. I can't help but feel like a couple of tweaks and this could open up a lot more.Also I couldn't not think of Johnny Cage's ...

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch all the way came out in 2014 (nothing in the releases tab says otherwise) but it's still listed as 2013 for some reason so I can't put it in. They could look at the new shorts...

    @reverendk said:@bacongames: It is interesting that justice to the fullest is putting Wilson in jail, when even with the involvement of the FBI the decision was not to indict. I haven't gotten throug...

  • BaconGames posted a message in the forum topic You should know about what's happening in Ferguson.. on the Off-Topic board

    I wonder what would have happened had there been justice to the fullest extent, if Darren Wilson was charged with murder (I don't know which degree since I'm not up on that distinction) and sentenced ...

  • BaconGames posted a message on the post Unprofessional Fridays: 11/21/2014.

    I don't think I've ever not been satisfied by a UPF but people have to realize that this show is basically video game show and tell and an excuse to hang out. Which means it's impossible to keep consi...

    Patreon is rad and people going to it shouldn't be the issue here. It's basically a way of directly supporting regular output where it would be posted online or freelance (webcomics, article writing, ...

  • BaconGames posted a message in the forum topic Games may now take your blood, in a addition to your time. on the General Discussion board

    You know, as it will likely only be allowed at sanctioned blood donation drive events, this could be a worthwhile and fun thing. I don't know if it's $250,000 worth it but I guess that's for everyone ...

  • BaconGames posted a message in the forum topic Do you think we could have internet police?. on the General Discussion board

    At some point it's that fuzzy line between damaging discourse and the validity of the initial speech and losing context. Death threats, while increasingly and rightly talked about, are almost a classi...

  • BaconGames posted a message in the forum topic Vote Jeff Gerstmann for Trending Gamer at The Game Awards. on the Jeff Gerstmann board

    I bet this is here at least partially because people like Total Biscuit and PewDiePie command huge YouTube audiences that can drive promotion of the awards. Audience choice stuff certainly isn't for p...
