Why is it so hard for the big game journalism sites to do a story that covers both sides?

Because there are no two sides to this. A woman got harassed out of her house. How is there another side to this? Do you demand national news to report the "side" of criminals whenever a crime happens too?

Obviously you have to tell yourself that to keep going. But if games are shitty and even the devs don't care, the industry has a problem. Just look at Steam lately...

Dave's talking about something totally different though. He talks about games you put your everything into, even if they end up not exactly changing the world. Not about shitting out something half-assed and putting it on a storefront.

Man, as much as I love the crazy shenanigans Dave often pulls, "real talk" Dave Lang is always amazing and inspiring. Cheers to him.

I also take issue with Americans pronouncing it YO-she. Yoshi clearly says Yosh-ee, as do most people in England.

wait, really

No, it's actually pronounced Yosh. Like, if you were Yoshi's friend in high school and you were like, "Hey, Yosh!"

I'm not kidding. That's actually how it's pronounced in Japanese.

Don't know if this is just an obscure japanese language joke, but I still had to comment on it. While the word よし (yo-shi) can be pronounced Yosh in japanese (when meaning OK or All right), that's obviously not Yoshi's name. With correct japanese spelling Yoshi is named ヨッシー which directly translates to yosshii, but is pronounced YO-she.

But without the English diphtongized "o." I guess that's where much of that confusion comes from.

Far Cry 2 was the best Far Cry.

Alright, now that we have that out of the way... yay for vaguely racist cover art, I guess? Not that the series ever handled that topic gracefully, but... oh well.

Probably going to be a neat game, so... woo!

What!? I don't even... this is so sudden and sad. Rest in peace Ryan, you brought me and many others many hours of joy. My deepest condolences to all who had the pleasure to know him.

Fuck, I cannot believe this...

Yes, it doesn't really consume much power, so the effect on the electricity bill is minimal.

Every single bit counts, dude. Just multiply the number of people in the world who do this shit, as well as leaving the lights on and such and I think that number of pointlessly used electricity is huge. And you could also then go and count how much coal/uran etc is used DAILY, just becaus you don't care about "that little ammount" you are using up.

Just saying.

Since I skipped Forza 3, I am going to be all over Forza 4.

My body is ready.

There is also a slight factual error in the text. Kirby's Dream Land was not on the NES but on the original Game Boy, which in turn means the series debuted on the GB.

So now we can get a new Freespace, right?
