• LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Why is there so much hate for Jim Sterling from Destructoid?. on the Off-Topic board

    I think that in the 3 years since this thread was originally posted, Sterling has matured considerably, underplaying the kind of childish "outrageous hyperbolic opinions for comedy" angle for more of...

    @hassun: Well I did just give a connection that I think is very strong, in that they're both pretty clear critiques of the mainstream form of their medium. That's a context that even Spec Ops: The Lin...

    Is Spec Ops: The Line the Birdman of games?

    Why did they make a fuss about how important story is to them, when most of the dialogue is an almost complete copy of every other piece of back-and-forth in cover-based shooters?

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Why aren't female character options good representations?. on the General Discussion board

    I must admit that of all feminist criticisms, the "Mr Man Trope" is the one that threw me off the most at first. Surely it's an implicit acceptance of patriarchal values to imply that female character...

    Damn, was this made by the OFF guys? It reminds me so much of that game, especially based on the battle music.

    Fallout: New Vegas: Ultimate Edition. It has a few gaps in the narrative, specifically in relation to the Courier's back-story and overall characterisation, but the DLC clears that right up (and give...

    Man, even at Early Access, this game seems like it has NO business being anywhere but a game dev's hard drive. 90% of the game mechanics seem either to be not implemented, or implemented but janky as ...
