    @s10129107:Oh totally, that was my point, it's complicated as fuck. I don't disagree with you on your overall points just that I'm uncomfortable painting Tencent with a broad brush or every business w...

    God I wish. All I've done is chipped here and there. Maybe this holiday weekend I should sit down and finish something. Steam sales really don't help lol

  • finaldasa posted a message in the forum topic Calling for a boycott of Chinese backed software.. on the General Discussion board

    I think there needs to be a clear distinction by what we mean when we say China. I believe in your post you're referencing the Chinese government. Tencent is a public company and while they clearly h...

    There's still a pile of games I need to finish, but if I had to choose right now it'd be Animal Crossing. Not because AC is some amazing achievement or accomplishment, it just wins by attrition. Noth...

    Was Origins the third one released but not the third Rocksteady Batman game?After City I just didn't keep up with who did which one since City sorta soured me on the rest of the franchise.

  • finaldasa posted a message in the forum topic I just got banned from chat.. on the Bombcast board

    Coopting a conversation about women who are sharing their stories of abuse and assault by reminding everyone that white men exist isn't good timing to say it politely. This time and place is about th...

  • finaldasa posted a message in the forum topic Those user Metacritic reviews are fake right?. on the The Last of Us Part II board

    @sweep: @drbroel: Mainly I've seen it on Twitter from friends. The main point I've seen is using the trans character's deadname and misgendering them is crossing a line because the trans character is ...

  • finaldasa posted a message in the forum topic Those user Metacritic reviews are fake right?. on the The Last of Us Part II board

    I mean it's pretty clear there are people bombing the user score for that game. But there is more to the criticism than assholes who think lesbian and trans characters are bad. I've seen several tran...

  • finaldasa posted a message in the forum topic Are AAA games starting to get too long?. on the General Discussion board

    Judging a game based only on length isn't enough. Some games are 40+ hours but the story moves along and wraps up nicely, others are 20+ hours and seem to drag. Story and design have a big role to pl...

    $500 but they would need to be pretty spectacular consoles. I'd need to see a decent lineup in that first year, a good chunk of backward compatibility, and some deep improvements to functionality fro...

    @onemanarmyy: Reviewers can't, by themselves, just change a company's direction. Consumers have to consider it when they buy the game and that's why I deem it okay to add in a company's work condition...

  • finaldasa posted a message in the forum topic Should games reviews acknowledge poor studio conditions?. on the General Discussion board

    @grayfox666: Naw. That's Metacritic's and the developer/publisher who uses it problem. If Metacritic went away companies could still aggregate and determine scores on their own. But this is also parti...
