I mean... all of the content is just them playing games. What does it really matter if they finish the game or not? Like, as a publication, why would a rule be, "if we finish the game, clearly that is an endurance run and cannot be premium content." It is all arbitrary. Some things will be free, others locked. It has nothing to do with how much they play of a game, or how often it is released.

Couldn't some of you weirdos be obsessed with something cool?

I think what I've seen of it looks really, really good, from an aesthetic perspective at least.

I'll stand by you on that 100%.

@epidehl: Go for a 4 gig card for sure. That "extra" memory will go a long way in preparing for this gen.

The ducks might seem bad, but only they know that the lunch is poisoned.

Oh fuck, I forgot [GAME THAT IS BEING COVERED] is a thing that exists.

I'm not tired of pixel art at all. I'm definitely tired of games that try to remind you of the 80's every five minutes, but what people can do if they're really going for it with pixel art is so complex it really resembles something like pointillism in painting more than anything that was happening in 16 bit video games. There was some awesome pre-video game pixel art, guys..

@serker: The only spooky thing about 'Gone Home' is how much praise it gets and how much it costs.

It'll probably make top 10 since most of the developers who worked on it are ex-games journalists with connections. Just take one look at Polygon's articles on Gone Home. They were hyping it as the second coming of Christ months before it came out. I get that you should help out your friends, but going that far in a profession that requires journalistic integrity is just sickening and wrong.

The game deserves 6/10 on a 2010 scale. You know, before The Princess of Lies made that kickstarter.

Pretty sure you are mistaken, my man. They are mostly former 2K Marin employees, not media types. Maybe you're confusing them with Greg Kasavin and Supergiant games?
