  • chimpchamp posted a message in the forum topic Why is the Galactic Empire so bad?. on the Star Wars board

    Yeah I think Lucas makes it clear in some interviews that The Empire is analogous to Nazi Germany or Fascist American politics, like Nixon. They're not "bad" for most of the people living under them...

    I recently replayed MGS 1 and 2 and played 3 for the first time and watched 4 on youtube. Personally, 2 has a great story in retrospect, and the gameplay is good, but the two don't gel like they do ...

    In the Christmas Kojisute, at the very end, Kojima says he can't talk about the release date yet but he heavily implied that 2015 is the target year, and said that the ending is in sight and it isn't ...

  • chimpchamp posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon 2 - Part 05.

    Want to say to Drew that I've just finished replaying 2 and I also really dislike the gameplay and find it rough... it's not you, it's the claustrophobic setting that makes it almost artificially awk...

  • chimpchamp posted a message in the forum topic What do you honestly expect from games journalism?. on the General Discussion board

    I agree with the problems raised in the OP. Before I had expectations of integrity, balancing inside status with honesty for the readership. Now I just want to watch Dan and Vinny and not hear Jeff,...

    I am informed by an industry man of the time that the colecovision makers/producers, CBS?, had a magazine do a whole bunch of reviews for games that hadn't even been made yet. Then the crash happened...

    Wow. GB staff, can you not see the consumer revolt behind this? I want for nothing more than an open an unpoliticised, non agenda driven, gaming media. That is why I support gamergate. To imply th...

    As someone who loved Halo 3 and ODST legendary co-op for the amazing set pieces and AI, would people with a similar background recommend it to me? I also felt the reviews didn't give the game a fair...

  • chimpchamp posted a message on the post PAX Panel: We’ve Survived the Internet, And So Can You.

    Well, at this point I'm feeling pretty trolled by Patrick. His refusal to talk about the issues surrounding Gamergate, and his persistence in tweeting, tumblring and now publishing support for these...

    Now... I don't consume anything that doesn't have Dan or Jeff or Rorie in it. Vinny needs someone to play along with his jokes, and I find Alex and Patrick are too literal to do that. Those guys ar...
