  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic Tale of Tales, and the hip crusade against virtual violence. on the General Discussion board

    There are inklings of decent threads to pull throughout his piece but he seems unwilling to tug on the right ones. "All violence is inherently bad" is way too simplistic, of course, even if I think th...

    Fast movement, slow projectiles, ripping guitar, and the devil.

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic What are your thoughts on the game's female characters?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    @cagliostro88: That's fine! I'm saying the "that's just how things were!" argument comes up anytime there's criticism of any fantasy setting, and I think that's ridiculous.

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic What are your thoughts on the game's female characters?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    I can't comment on this particular game as I haven't played it, but I do think the "historical accuracy" argument doesn't work with fantasy worlds. Yes, there may have been exceptionally poor treatmen...

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Bloodborne Boss?. on the Bloodborne board

    Gehrman and Gascoine for me. I didn't have much trouble with any of the other bosses, and they reward the player for fully understanding the game's mechanics. The One Reborn is probably my least favo...

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic I found Rom today. I'm very unhappy right now. (Spoilers). on the Bloodborne board

    I don't mean this in a boastful way, but I beat Rom on my first try by completely ignoring the little spiders, getting a few swipes in on his sides/back, and then backing away when he was about to att...

    Cara is the best. Her writing is just fun to read. They gotta get her on the site more in SOME capacity.

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic Letter from the Editor discussion.. on the General Discussion board

    I'll say that I don't entirely agree with the part about silence and complicity. I understand where Jeff is coming from, but it is a position of privilege to be able to say "let's not talk about it s...

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic Yet Another Developer Leaves Their Home Following Harassment. on the Brianna Wu board

    @philconnors: This is a wildly long-winded and meandering way to arrive at the (valid) conclusion that mainstream games service male power fantasies. That's my only takeaway from this.

  • Yelix posted a message in the forum topic Yet Another Developer Leaves Their Home Following Harassment. on the Brianna Wu board

    Anyone who thinks this is an isolated incident hasn't been paying attention. This isn't new with GG, either. Some scumbag made a flash game about beating up Anita Sarkeesian because she said she woul...

    Please don't get mad at Brianna for calling GB out on TV. I'm sure Patrick and everyone else on staff would probably agree that it's fair criticism. I've followed Brianna on Twitter for a few months a...
