    I think a comparison to MMOs or motion controls is quite generous: Those innovations produced some successes.

    Good article. I think you give other games writers and publications far too much credit though.

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Discussing: Polygon’s Race Problem in Games. on the General Discussion board

    @defaultprophet: Yes, I honestly believe that. It's not like they set out with a plan to do that, it's just something that they saw worked and so they have kept on doing it. There are no mental gymnas...

  • exfate posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hatred.

    It's a shame that this game is so tame. If you're going to make a game to poke the politically correct morons of the world, you should go all out. Nothing about this game is as horrific as Polygon et ...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Twitch bans Adults Only games. on the General Discussion board

    Does anybody know if there is a Twitch policy for unrated games, because as far as I can find there isn't? It's kind of a shame that Hatred went through the ESRB for a rating--they didn't have to sinc...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Valve Announces Steam Refund Program. on the Steam board

    This will sound heartless but I couldn't care less about the impact on small developers. If a game is getting lots of refund requests, the problem is with the game, not the customers. It is wrongheade...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Your worst game save data loss?. on the General Discussion board

    Final Fantasy 8First try I got to the start of Disc 4 when you're on Lunatic Pandora and have a boss fight vs. Adel. I was severely under-leveled (all characters around level 35 iirc) because that gam...

    @altairre: Jim is right about Molyneux's history with over promising and under delivering, sure. But Godus is the only time he's responsible directly to his customers for funding. None of the previou...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic What is good games journalism?. on the General Discussion board

    Good journalism is factual, truthful, and above all it is written with the interests of the reader as the primary concern. Even inherently subjective forms of journalism such as reviews can meet those...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Peter Molyneux Is Going Nuclear.... on the General Discussion board

    Most people would have refused to continue with the interview after that first RPS question. In my opinion Molyneux came away from that interview looking like someone who doesn't want to hide from his...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Law & Order SVU - The Gamergate episode - How accurately does it represent gaming to you?. on the General Discussion board

    The sad reality is that the absurdity of that episode is what a certain section of the games/tech media have been reporting on their sites and saying on Twitter. If the non-existent threats from gamer...

    Getting Danny and Mary in on this is just all kinds of an awesome idea. Really hope that's the plan.

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Games Aren't Fair to Women, and Even Duders Should Care. on the General Discussion board

    Male and female game characters look the way they do for the same reason that it's primarily attractive people, made all the more beautiful by their highly skilled makeup teams, that succeed in acting...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Hotline Miami 2 Effectively Banned in Australia. on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number board

    It's this simple: No content should ever be censored anywhere in the world for adults. The only exception is content where real people are really hurt or abused in some way, or the content is directly...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Is GB planning to replace Patrick or leave the spot open?. on the General Discussion board

    @onarum: I don't think Jeff is the kind of person to hire for the sake of tokenism. If they hire a woman I'm sure it will be for the right reasons.

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic FYI: Patrick is now a Senior Reporter at Kotaku. on the General Discussion board

    I kind of feel bad for Patrick. Working for a blog makes logical sense with him being stranded out in Chicago though. Hopefully he can find a route to going independent on Youtube or something, becaus...

    Bye Patrick. You've produced some great content, and I hope that you continue to succeed in whatever comes next for you!

    I literally face-palmed at the irony of number 8 in that list of 25 benefits video. They have quite literally been asked to speak on behalf of their gender--that's what the video is.Someone should buy...

  • exfate posted a message in the forum topic Indie dev plans to revoke keys for GamerGate supporters. on the General Discussion board

    The guy is just desperate for attention. I mean, let's face it, the game he made has zero merit, artistic or otherwise. People only cared about it because he was fired for making it.
