    I eat less ketchup than I used to. At some point it just started to taste too processed and sugary. That said it has its place and mayo is outright gross.

    How crazy is it that Polygon laid-off Russ Pitts? Does not bode well for a site when they get rid of their head features editor (who did fantastic work), when one of the most defining aspects of that ...

    Agree with the thoughts on Inside Llewyn Davis; thought it was a pretty big letdown. I don't care if the character grows or not so long as the more I get to know the character, the more interesting hi...

  • Gold_Skulltulla posted a message in the forum topic Bummer, Harmonix experiences more Layoffs on the Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. board.

    @mb: Probably more likely that there would have been more layoffs if the Kickstarter was unsuccessful. Have to imagine they weren't going to make staffing cuts without knowing what their budget and w...

    @kadayi: Not to spend too much breath on the art thing, but I'll concede to a degree that the idea that certain opinions hold more stock than others and that the two examples I gave come from voices ...

    @kadayi: I have to dispute your claim that art is a well understood concept. The definition you cited is one that we can agree on, but in practice, it's a different story. This is where sentiments li...

    Change is exciting. Looking forward to the GBNY expansion!

    @kadayi: I'm not sure a definition that holds up to universal scrutiny is possible for "game" at this point, as with "art." Definitions are social constructs agreed upon by communities that hold powe...

    @kadayi: If designers want to start calling what they make "virtual fiction" then I'm all for it, but I feel like that's their decision to make. As is, there's a semantic powerplay at work that place...

    @kadayi: I hear you, but I think we have a very limited taxonomy for games, where something is either a game or it's not, and if it's not a game, then what is it? This is often a difficult question t...

    @kadayi: I'll give you that you can experience most of what these games are by watching someone else play them, but there is something to participating in driving things forward. In TFOL's case, the ...

    Crazy how much of this seems to come down to when Carmack was off the clock or not. What times in an employee's day are they allowed to not be "at work" ?

    @video_game_king: Oh there is definitely some power at work, particularly when collectives form, but I'd argue that in the context of the content of a particular game, no one holds more power as to w...
