Also this is unrelated, but I'd like to talk to Brad for a moment.

Brad, I've been following you since the GS days. I think you're a stand up guy. I cheered wholeheartedly when you got that COD4 achievement. So it's with the upmost respect that I say this: Brad, you've put on some weight.

Now, I have absolutely no right to tell you how to live your life and I recognize that, but as a fan of what you do, I just want you to know that I'm starting to get worried about your health. I think others here are as well. We just want you to be on this little planet for as long as possible and continue doing what you're doing.

Maybe I'm just imagining things, but hearing your labored breathing during the Destiny raid really made me worried for you.

Thanks for your time,

Personally I'm sick of this whole thing and I just wish everyone would just stop. The only way to deal with trolls is to ignore them completely. Don't even acknowledge that they're speaking. They might gnash their teeth and stomp their feet but after a while they'll grow bored and move on to something else.

While I appreciate all the outcry and public support victims are getting, I feel like all it really does is stoke the fires more...

So happy this got pushed back so far! Q4 is so packed!

So what's stopping me from just duct taping a Note 4 to my forehead and calling it a day? Is there any actual tech in that thing or is it just a shell?

Editors or other people of note who point out and complain about comment sections are often making the problem worse because they are glorifying the bad behavior.

Meaningful discussion from individuals on differing sides of an issue cannot happen online. Even at its best, conversations and articles essentially amount to pointing fingers at one another and then someone somewhere saying 'do better' as if the person hearing that message would respond with 'ok!'.

On that note, these articles seem mostly to be designed for preaching to the converted because, to the unconverted, it sounds real accusatory. There are exceptions, but that there are exceptions sot of proves the point.

I love that Dan and Jason work at this site. I think they are a great fit. But, in light of articles, interviews, and podcasts on issues like sexism and misogyny, not all only involving Patrick mind you, GB looked pretty damn hypocritical for hiring them. Again, I like the guys, but still very hypocritical.

Killzone 3

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2

Infamous 2nd Son

Dragon Age 2

I think that covers everything recently. I really need to learn to stop being excited for games...

So I just got around to watching Kill la Kill since I found out it was made by the TTGL dude (arguably my second favorite anime of all time). Was super disappointed. It's so dumb! Not only the premise, but the characters and plot. TTGL had it's share of dumbness but it was also cool and sad. This is just dumb and even more dumb. Even the animation and fighting sequences weren't that great. Reminds me of that infamous crappy episode of TTGL (Ep 4, if I'm not mistaken) where the quality tanked.

2/5 would not watch again.

Whenever I try to send a PM or post a forum reply, I'm unable to click on the entire box (there's only a highlights blue text box if I click in the top middle) and then no text posts even if I type something.

Edit: This is using the latest version of Safari. Just tested Chrome and it doesn't seem to have that issue.

A lot of Kojima's tweets over the past few months make way more sense now.
