The thing that bugs me the most is where he claims only soccer players cry. I've seen male and female athletes from a bunch of different sports cry before, sometimes when they win, sometimes when they lose, sometimes when they suffer injuries.

Why an employee of Giant Bomb wants to waste his free time antagonizing people on twitter is one thing, but if you're going to troll it has to make some kind of sense.

I see he has already apologized so that's fine. Time to move on.

Sony are going to do it, too.

"On Xbox One, active Gold membership required to play free games you've downloaded"

So, is the PS Plus format only applying to Xbox One games, while 360 remains as it has been?

Yes. The only reason MS lets you keep the Games with Gold games on the 360 after your subscription has lapsed is because they couldn't engineer a way on their old console to tie downloaded game access to your Xbox Live status. If they could make it subscription based on the 360 too, they would.

It works for me because I'm still making my way thru Sleeping Dogs three months after I let my Gold subscription end.

Trophy rarity is interesting, but I hate that you still need to sync. Thanks for the words, Jeff. Enjoy the flight.

If it's as fast as on the Vita it shouldn't be a problem.

I hope the WiiU is down to $250 or less by the time Bayonetta 2 comes out.

Good reporting by Patrick to totally ignore all the great deals that happened because of MS Points.

Shit, y'all, Patrick doesn't even directly say anything about feminism/sexism in video games and you all are still jumping on him for it. It's completely absurd and makes me ashamed as someone who plays video games.

All he was commenting on is was that it's cool for there to be civil discourse in this world, when so much seems to instead be an endless onslaught of vitriol. That doesn't accomplish a whole lot (the vitriol), and it's very important to consider how others feel about things. Derek Yu doing that is pretty awesome.

The problem I have with this whole thing is that I don't understand what the hell kind of "change" that "conversation" is supposed to have. All I saw is a developer cautiously trying to calm any fires before they could start because Anita Sarkeesian made an absurd statement about how Spelunky apparently considers women as equals to dogs, or something. That doesn't solve anything.

It would be nice if Patrick would comment on the absurdity of some of the claims presented by Sarkeesian. "This is the kind of dialogue that sparks change" is particularly cringeworthy given her previous comments about Spelunky.
