    I hate co-op in 99% of cases. Either the game is made worse because of the focus on it or the co-op just isn't enjoyable to me because of the differences between players in what we want out of the gam...

    I haven't played a game in about a month either. In fact, I keep leaving a game running all day long with the means to play it, but I never do. Now I'm just not even getting started because I don't w...

    I also believe that personality driven video "infotainment" is where all of my future games media consumption will come from this point forward. That may make me part of the problem if I'm completely...

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

    Most people in the games media are not journalists, which is something I wish a lot of people would realize and get over themselves with. People say that they want credible video game journalism, but ...

    Yeah, I'll go out on a limb and say that MacDonald and Calvert were far more serious layoffs than Petit or McShea. If those two are gone, then I don't know what the hell is going to happen to GameSpot...
