    @tehpickle: Yeah, it kills me when I see someone say "I love Bayonetta but I ain't getting a WiiU for one game" or "There's nothing else on the WiiU" or "I'm ALMOST close to buying one, but there sti...

    @itachiitachi: Agreed, and I just hope that somewhere behind the scenes he IS working on some more nuanced piece but sadly I doubt it. I used to be one to defend Patrick with all of those bitching ab...

    The one thing that bugs me about this issue is how it is always shown as one sided too. There have been dozens if not more instances of people (female and male) in 'gamergate' being threatened and dox...

    @patrickklepek: No, I think it's fear of disagreeing because the second you disagree about something labeled feminist you're instantly labeled misogynist and no one wishes to deal with that swarm of ...

    I actually agree with Jeff about most of it, excluding the assumption that GG is just about the assholes. It's really shitty that everyone claims that is the case when you go to the tag itself and mo...

    @tehpickle: Excluding those who do the threats, I think everyone agrees on this. I know I certainly do. I don't agree with Anita for example but she doesn't deserve vitriol, death threats or bomb thr...

    I wish Patrick wouldn't instantly link this horrible abuse to all people who use #Gamergate. Many people who use and follow the hashtag think the death threats and harassment of that ilk is wrong and ...

  • synthesis_landale posted a message on the post Giant Bomb East versus The PC!.

    Poor Vinny... I nearly tore my hair out trying to figure out what to use to build my new PC. The thing is, the actual building of a PC hasn't changed since the P1 with MMX days. It just seems they've...

    No talk about Heath Slater's win streak? I am so disappointed. The chants on this week's RAW were glorious.

  • synthesis_landale posted a message on the post The Powerbombcast Episode 11 - REGARDLESS OF VAMPIRISM.

    I wanna point out that as of last week's Main Event, (Just before Del Rio got fired), Zeb and Swagger were STILL being super racist towards Mexicans. I actually found that pretty fucking bold and surp...

    I've seen a few people squee about the title card, I must have missed it or paying attention enough to realize how great it was, but, um, what was so special about it?

  • synthesis_landale posted a message on the post Quick Look EX: Pillars of Eternity.

    Just a random thought... If a game is in Beta, like this is, shouldn't there be a new category for that... Instead of Quick Look EX, how about Unfinished EX?
