    I don't generally go to Polygon much (most of their content is pretty straightforward press-release style stuff, which I don't care for), but this I can really get behind. I played an embarrassing am...

    Man Drew is so great. I love when he shows up to do interesting/hilarious shit. Poor Rorie looked so exhausted--it's been a long couple of weeks for him.

    Huge fan of Cara and Tina on this stream--I'm a massive fan of Cara's work (I even back her Patreon), so my opinion might be skewed.I haven't mentioned this before because I couldn't place it until n...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message on the post Unfinished: Destiny 07/18/2014.

    This looks acceptable. The Crucible footage made me want to fire up Reach (I really liked the Reach multiplayer).I don't know if this is a day one buy for me or not, to be honest, but I will probably ...

    Did they run out of X Games to broadcast? I'm shocked.I guess games are finally REAL SPORTS, you guys. We did it.

  • Ford_Dent posted a message in the forum topic Social Issues and Giant Bomb: The Internet Is Serious Business (but It Doesn't Have to Be) on the General Discussion board.

    I honestly think there are some great discussions happening on the site right now that have to do with social issues, and there are also some great discussions about creating content that involves Da...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message in the forum topic Why do you play as the opposite gender? on the General Discussion board.

    Generally I try to make a character who looks as little like me as possible. I had a weird hang-up about being seen playing with a female avatar when I was younger--because I figured everyone would ju...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message in the forum topic When was the last time you took notes playing a video game? on the General Discussion board.

    The last time I wrote shit down in a game was playing Killer 7 back in... I think 2007 (I picked it up used for a song, and it is easily my favorite game I think). You need to be able to recall a bun...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 07/15/2014.

    The Feeding Dan idea was brilliant. I was all-round thrilled by this installment of the Bombcast--Samatha brought some good conversation to the table, Brad held down the host chair admirably again (w...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message in the forum topic The Man Who Now Leads Atari on the Atari board.

    The most intriguing thing for me is seeing Atari's realization that there's a massive untapped market in creating content for an LGBT audience. I will be very interested in seeing how that works out...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message on the post Quick Look EX: Shadowgate.

    Brad sounded so excited about this, and hearing the developer reminisce about the original version was pretty great. This looks neat! I had a copy of Deja Vu way back when which I was completely terr...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message in the forum topic Marvel has made Thor female. on the Off-Topic board.

    From the looks of it this comes out of something that happens in the Original Sin event that is currently going on. I think it will do a few things for Marvel: It will continue to attract female read...

  • Ford_Dent posted a message in the forum topic What is the scariest game you have played? on the General Discussion board.

    It's a toss-up for me between Knock Knock (which, when played with the lights off and a set of headphones, scares the ever-loving shit out of me) and Dead Space--although I find Dead Space more stres...
