Jiquk's forum posts
Hey can I make a suggestion to the Whiskey Media web devs. It would be really cool if you implemented some sort of filtering system, so I can choose which members of the editorial staff's articles are displayed on the homepage. I'd gladly renew my membership if such a feature was exclusive to paid members.
Consider this a reply to everyone who said "just don't read it". I would have gladly ignored this article entirely if not for the fact it reminded me of something... Patrick is paid to provide Giantbomb users with NEWS not another story about someones moderately problematic syndrome , It's downright embarrassing the manner in which he feels he has the right to force feed us yet another story about someone who isn't 100% "normal" and just so happens to play videogames. Hell I broke my leg once and may have played videogames during that period of time... maybe he should write up a lengthy article about how it helped me deal with my broken leg. Much in the same way videogames wont cure Aspergers they didn't cure my leg. It's a pointless article that wouldn't feel appropriate on another gaming website and sure as hell doesn't feel appropriate on Giantbomb(You know the website with the podcast where nobody can get a word in edge ways because someone is always busy shouting profanities or making lewd sexually suggestive jokes. Not that any of this is bad, that's why I come to Giantbomb for god's sake). Undoubtedly someone will reply to this praising Klepeck and stating what a wonderful heartwarming tale this was and how it helped them overcome their wrongly self diagnosed condition. Well you know what? Giantbomb ain't what it used to be. Fuck you guys I'm going home.
An article about a single gamer suffering from Aspergers? Come on GB get your shit together. Yes it's not an enjoyable syndrome(as apposed to all those enjoyable ones right?) but it's not newsworthy and never will be, no matter how proficiently the article about it is written. There are FAR worse things a single gamer could suffer from.
Even if they were "underclocking" the console that wont magically make the rest of the components transform into their newer faster counterparts. Nintendo is about 4 years too late to the party. It's almost embarrassing seeing them try to advertise the WiiU to a hardcore audience, that's the same audience that got burned with the Wii and they're not coming back just for exclusives with gimmicky control options.
