• medacris posted a message in the forum topic What do you do when the staff hates a game you are playing?. on the General Discussion board

    Shrug and move on. Especially if it's just a matter of taste. No review site or magazine has a person who enjoys each genre, and sometimes, the person chosen to review something is the person most li...

  • medacris posted a message on the post Here's the Next Game From the Creators of SteamWorld Dig.

    @seruk: It's a great game. My friend's sister did art on it, I believe (I don't know her name, unfortunately, just her online handle). I've been meaning to draw Rusty and Dorothy eventually. I was ki...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Had to get this off my chest. This is my pain.. on the Off-Topic board

    To clarify, are/were the two of you dating, or was this just a crush? Because I've been in the situation where I got jealous of platonic friends when I was dating someone, and I was jealous of potent...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Should ALL video games be "fun?". on the General Discussion board

    All I ask from a game is that it stimulates me mentally in some way, and is interactive. It doesn't have to be "fun". If gaming wants to be considered an art form, we're going to have games that discu...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Have a free Mighty Gunvolt US E-shop code!. on the Mighty Gunvolt board

    It seems like a lot of people are running into this problem, OP. It's not uncommon for a Kickstarter to throw in their previous product for free, as thanks/incentive to back, but with games, you end ...

    He might like something really dumb and silly, too. I watched the videos where he played Muscle March and Katamari Forever with his dad, and he seemed to get more of a kick out of them than his dad d...

    Don't feel ashamed. You are under no obligation to play or like any game, no matter how much hype or how many positive reviews it gets. It's all a matter of taste.

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic What exactly do you want from games journalism?. on the General Discussion board

    Opinions similar to mine, with a lot of thought put into why they liked a certain game. Opinions different to mine, opinions I disagree with, but with valid reasoning to back it up. Let's say T has pu...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic I don't like the "Premium content available". on the General Discussion board

    @monkeyking1969: I know it's a very small amount of people, but there are those who are interested in games despite not being able to afford any, or those who are in a I'm-young-and-my-parents-won't-...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic What Giant Bomb content don't you consume?. on the Bomb Squad board

    Part of me wants to watch the Persona playthroughs, part of me wants to wait until I play the games myself before looking through them. But I haven't bought the Persona games for the same reason I don...

    @therealmoot: I've been in a similar situation before. On one hand, I feel like I should own some sort of weapon, because I've been in dangerous positions before, and I have the right to defend myself...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic The Problem With Relationship Systems in Games. on the General Discussion board

    One of the reasons I've never played Dragon Age or Mass Effect is the romance system:What if I like everyone in my team equally? I'd feel bad romancing one over the others.If I just opt out of the rom...

    @panelhopper: I've been in a similar situation before. From the information you've given us, it doesn't seem like your family's done anything toxic, or that you need to leave, but perhaps that you may...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic How Do You Deal With Derogatory Language In The Workplace?. on the Off-Topic board

    I wouldn't say anything, if it were me, only because I've had a lot of people respond with hostility towards me when I did. They went into lengthy lectures about how they weren't talking about me or a...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Worth Reading: 07/28/2014. on the General Discussion board

    @yummylee: When you're playing with friends, yes. That's probably the only place trash talking should take place. Otherwise, with total strangers, it can get complicated. You don't really know them, ...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Why are there so many silent protagonists?. on the General Discussion board

    I think it's a mixture of player agency and another, totally opposite kind of gamer-- those who have no interest in the concept of a game having a story, either because they have no patience for it, ...
