It's frustrating to hear Jeff and others shit on Shenmue without recognizing what makes that game interesting. It has a strange charm that other games don't by making it possible to interact with so many npcs. If nothing else, it's funny (whether or not it is intentionally so) and there's so much entertainment value there which should be the reason any of us play video games. Boiling it down to bullet points misses all the good in the game, so of course with that tunnel vision you're going to say the game is a "bag of poop".

Whoever said the '90's was the worst decade for music clearly wasn't considering the rap side of things.

Hudson-Cartier is the most Canadian name for a malevolent corporation you could think of. The one most steeped in Canadian history, at least. (Cartier was the explorer who "claimed" Canada for France, and the Hudson's Bay Company was the most prominent fur trading company/company when Canada became a country.)

I'd want to see some Famicom games come out at all commercially through any platform, like Konami Wai Wai world and Getsu Fūma Den.

Anyways, I have no interest in this thing considering there's no cartridge port at all, but it will definitely be better than that $80 Genesis thing I had that had the worst fucking sound emulation. I had to atone for that mistake by purchasing a real model 2 Genesis, which lead me down a financially irresponsible rabbit hole in which I rebought all the games I had as a kid, any game that looked interesting at all that was under $100 on eBay, and a Sega CD and 32X. Still felt like redemption.

I need something to play the Snake's Revenge cartridge I have sitting around, and this isn't it.

When have they ever talked shit about "Bernie Bros" for that to be brought up in that email? It seems like they only ever allude to political stuff, and if they were just listing shitty groups in general, how does that ever get in over Trump supporters?

Fuck man, this is the first time I've ever seen any racist bullshit about Watch Dogs 2. Based on what limited information I found it seems like it's just a small amount of trolls baiting for reactions on the game's Steam community page, but to think that anybody relates to Aiden Pierce more than Marcus Holloway based on color alone.. that person couldn't be anything other than human excrement. I hope that these are 14-16 year-olds that live sheltered lives and will eventually learn how absolutely abhorrent they used to be.

When it comes to people of other races voicing/motion capturing other races, my gut reaction is "what's wrong with that?" on principle. I have absolutely no problem with non-straight or white people voicing straight or white people; but upon thinking about it further, the other way around shouldn't be acceptable in this day and age. I think it may be a bridge to far to expect the same thing when it comes to writers, though. When there is a set of main writers trying to convey their vision, you can't really criticize them for not bringing in an external writer to write a LGBT character because they're straight. More LGBT and minority writers should be working on games, certainly. But writers should strive for diversely representative casts regardless of their race, gender or orientation.
