Zelda is convincing me to buy a Warriors game. I'm a terrible human being.

I was hoping Nolan North would show up, oh well. Great stuff anyways, but: fire that lighting technician who cut those two segments short before Ellie's retorts.

So Dan has never had tea in his life.

Should have just hired a toddler.

My main issue with Watch Dogs is how it tries to be Bridge-era William Gibson but completely fails to commit and let go of the focus-tested generic action tropes.

These tweets:

  • Chris Hecker
  • Vice Games
  • Aevee Bee

confuse the shit out of me. I can't even parse meaning.

(I would've quoted them if I, you know, could.)

Aevee Bee's is basically talking about the trope where a loved one, usually girlfriend or wife, is murdered. It's basically used as motivation for the male protagonist to advance the story. The tweet basically fills Patrick's feminism quota for worth reading.

"Quota"? Do you really think Patrick sits down and goes "Oh shit, I need to find a feminist article/tweet to staple to this before I can post it"? It's pretty disheartening to see people here assuming that Patrick is trying to fill some kind of quota instead of, you know, actually giving a general crap about this kind of thing and exposing himself to writing/people who discuss it frequently as a result.

It's a joke. Calm down.

This exchange tells me a lot about the proponents of "politically charged video game journalism".
