@amiga1200: I just yearn for the days where the data on the game cartridge worked properly without needing an extra 20GBs worth of patches...

Fixed.

@patrickklepek: Have you guys considered putting more segmentation or labels for things that show up in the Articles section of the site?

I feel like if there was a better way to distinguish what is a news article vs. feature/report/editorial/opinion/whatever would maybe alleviate some of these comments where people thought this was going to be a more in-depth conversation.

At the very least, it should better set the expectation for what they are about to read.

I seem to remember Jeff saying a while ago that he felt breaking up the "News" heading that way would do too much to declaw editorials, or give the impression that the site didn't stand behind a writer's opinion.

That's a fair argument - I totally know where Jeff is coming from with that. I thought about that after I had made that comment for sure, because realistically speaking the majority of the audience isn't here at Giant Bomb for straight up "news" - that's better served by sites like Polygon anyways. The editorializing and opinion (whether it is of the news or not) is why we are here to begin with.

But one cannot change the creation, he cannot change objective elements inside of it, only its vision.

Yes, yes he can. He can and he has. Welcome to the internet!

How does that prove anything? Sure you can take part of a work of art and create something else with it, but that doesn't change the original creation! You just created something else!

If that "something else" is a more enjoyable gameplay experience in this case, I'll take it.

Internet manchild learns he needs to act like an adult if he wants to make a career for himself. A good and appropriate moral in this, the fourteenth year of the Willenium.

I can't even imagine what a modern day Clock Tower game would be like.

Here's hoping she comes back with something refreshing - hopefully working on something smaller scale. Interested to see where she goes next.

Holy shit. The fact that Sony actually made moves to make this happen is pretty amazing.
