You know, The score that Polygon gave is probably the most realistic.

And let's not argue schematics about the art style here, either. It's a fucking brawler. and those are fun, but I can never see them being 8, 9, or 10 fun.

fun like that is low-key, and not a "drop your pants and play this game." kind of thing. The Polygon lady makes good points, regardless of where your butt sits on the art booby fence.

That's like saying that Mortal Kombat shouldn't have gotten 5 stars from Giant Bomb, because it's a fighting game, and I can never see them getting a 5. Or Halo 4 shouldn't have gotten 4 stars, because it's a shooter. Or Forza shouldn't score higher than 3 stars because it's a driving game.

technically you're right. But it's what MK and Halo and Forza do that makes it stand out from every other thing. Dragon's crown, from what I've been reading seems like nothing more than all intents and purposes an arcadey brawler. So I have reservations to see what's different about it.

So what if it's an arcadey brawler? If it's a good arcadey brawler, should it not receive a good score?

I would still consider a 5 to 7 still a good score.

That's an interesting question because I've gone over it multiple times in my head and I've played many different kinds. What makes MOBA's shitty is the communities you play with. It's great when you're on a team of people you know, but others can make it a pretty sad experience.

Essentially, I don't really like Dota 2 for that reason. It's also intimidating the Structure that Valve built to make sure that you're gonna spend money. LoL is Straight up Arena and easy to get into.

I also don't think there's enough people playing SMNC, that one is actually pretty great!

Eh.. Moba is a pretty niche thing, but there's a surprising number of ways that style is presented that might be cool to anybody.

They said some podcasts ago that they'll do the content when they do it.

If any of you guys find yourself asking that question, you really have to learn to have patience.

I liked that you coined some phrases.

This is pretty much the most immature video response about Anita Sarkeesian that I've ever seen.

It's not a question of it she played it or not, she still did the fucking research she wanted to do. Why is the internet so bull headed in taking her down rather than participating in whatever discussion she wants to present?

Sometimes things just open themselves up to discussion, wether Spill knew anything about him or not.
They're having a conversation about it, It doesn't sound like they're being assholes. They have their world, and it's seperate from giantbomb's you don't do anything a favour saying things like "Fuck those guys"

It's worse to react to it in a negative way, because they really don't mean any harm.
