    My favorite part of this whole thing is where he describes the places he'll be seeking future employment: "If I do continue to work in games it’ll be as an anonymous 1 of 1000 at some shitty corporat...

    I don't have numbers to back anything up. The point about not addressing any wrongs unless we can address them all hadn't occurred to me before. This probably WILL be over any day now. If you don't n...

    @splodge @humanity @amyggen : I disagree that it's clear that Patrick speaks for the entire site. A large portion of GB's audience hate him to the point that there is an extension that actually blocks...

    @excast: I think that if any kind of content bothers the reviewer enough for it to affect his experience with the game, that should be included in the review. If the content that bothers him doesn't ...

    @fordroog: I can't put my finger on it. For a while I was way into it, and I bought the DLC as soon as I could. I felt like the DLC maps weren't very good, and then I started getting bored. With CoD ...

    A competitive online-multiplayer shooter. At this moment Battlefield 4. A couple months ago I would have said Titanfall but that game hasn't been able to hold me.
