@revolve: Well if you look at bayo 2 reviews, everyone gives it oodles of praise for being a mechanically deep and fun action game, but then there's polygon marking it down because they think the absurdly over-the-top character is too over-the-top for them in a very specific way.

This is the thing that bothers me because instead of looking at a game based on it's gameplay, you bring in your own assumptions on what the character is, and start seeing things that may or may no really there. This is why I tend to disagree with a lot of anita's tropes vs. women videos.

I am all for anyone making games. Any kind of person. You want to make a game and I'll probably want to play it.

But if this attitude becomes popular at more media outlets, then you have developers who can't make a game a certain way because of scores. As much as I wish it didn't, scores mean sales and bonuses for the devs. This kind of thing is a slippery slope to censoring absurd and parody characters, like Bayonetta or GTA protagonists, and stopping people from making the games that they want to.

You know I always dismissed this kind of stuff as a very vocal minority who would never actually act upon anything, but that shit would get under my skin too. It's a shame stuff like this happens because I think there is legitimate discussion about the events of the past month and a bit but it's always going to get buried by people like this.

EDIT: Also I don't understand why people say the Zoe Quinn accusations were without merit because Stephen Totillo himself said her and Nathan became romantically involved.

Well I got one at launch and I've been thinking about getting a new one, glad I waited. If they released a bundle with the new pokemon games that was also red or blue I'd buy it in a second.

Though I doubt it'll be out here by then -- a man can dream

I don't even know why the term gamer exists. When I hear the term gamer I think of some 12 year old playing halo and call of duty.

I don't consider myself a "booker" or a "movier".

I've only ever been called a gamer maybe a handful of times in my short 23 year lifespan, but everytime I cringed internally.

Being primarily a PC gamer the only reason I go out to buy a game is because it's a console exclusive and it's a 50gb download.

If I had an unlimited bandwidth cap, I'd never buy a physical copy of a game again.

I know the point of kids reacting is for them to be kids, but holy shit that black girl made me cringe

So it worked fine in incognito and other browsers. So I cleared my cache and that hasn't seemed to change anything.
