Hi Patrick,

While I don't always agree with you, I feel you are always truthful and speak from the heart. You're a great writer and someone I'd consider trustworthy as well as the rest of the GB staff.

I have a question for you though: Why didn't you guys report on what happened to The Fine Young Capitalists game project?

For those who don't know, TFYC is an organization whose mission is "to create media using under represented labour, for unexplored demographics to fund non-profit organizations."

They were running a campaign that used video game ideas from women, to be developed by women, with the profits from the sales going to charity. Apparently, friend of the site, Zoe Quinn took exception with the way it was being handled and publicly criticized them on twitter. That lead to one of Zoe's friends doxxing one of the guys in charge (home and business addresses were posted) of the project, costing them money, sponsors, and temporarily sabotaging the whole thing. One of TFYC's claims was that tried to talk to gaming publications about what happened to them but no one listened which they surmised was because of Ms. Quinn's influence.

I have no way of verifying that claim so I wanted to ask you personally, Patrick. Did you know about any of the stuff happening with TFYC and if so, why didn't you report about it?

I hope Candyland gets the same treatment some day.

MIxed emotions on this. Happy for Kaz. He seems like a great guy and maybe Sony can turn things around under his direction. On the other hand, a lot of stress comes with that job and we'll probably never see at another E3 press conference.

Still missing the blades.

I still have my PS2 copy of ICO and I must be the only person on the planet that likes the US boxart. It's great. The kid looks like he's about to wreck somebody with that stick.

great article Patrick. I had some similar feelings while playing this game as well. I completely disagree with analysis of the puzzling, though. I think it's great. It's fast paced and frantic, but also forces you think hard on how to climb. However, I can definitely understand how someone can become frustrated with their design. The beauty of the puzzles is that there is no one right way to solve the puzzles but there's certainly a wrong way and that's usually where the frustration comes into play. Still, it's one of those things you either really like or just really hate it. Hopefully, more people will try the game and see for themselves.
