What makes respecting aesthetic decisions a bigger conversation than the gameplay decisions of the developer? If I take advantage of an exploit (in a single player game) in a combat system or how a level was designed I don't really see that as disrespecting the developer. Using exploits in dark souls are often encouraged and crazy bugs in games like red dead or skyrim are sought out for the humour they provide. A large amount of speed runs are all about breaking the levels to reach the end the fastest. I don't really see a distinction in changing something like the aspect ratio. If it's not giving you the edge in a competitive multiplayer game I feel like it's fair game.

Well it's true that GB doesn't really cover this too often (it's come up in the bombcast and morning show that I know of) at this point I don't think Giant Bomb see's their website as the kind of place that wants to cover demographics in the games industry. They're a website that focuses on the personalities of it's staff and the games that they play. There are sites like Polygon and Kotaku that want to provide more editorial coverage on issues in the games industry.

Of course, I think they should strive to have more diversity on staff next time they do some hiring. While the kind of content Brianna Wu wishes Giant Bomb would provide may not exist, she's well within her rights to say it. I also think that a site like GB could change to be more welcoming. Just because the site is primarily video focused right now doesn't mean there isn't room for changes to occur down the road. Through new hires or just wanting to take more of a stand I do hope that this site can be a good place for all people who are into games a crazy amount.

This is a perfect place to vent my frustrations, so Lost spoilers below!

Rewatching Lost has made me angry at the writers, but not for the reasons most people were. I loved the finale and was able to adjust my expectations early on in season 6 when it was clear that there wasn't going to be direct answers to everything. What is getting on my nerves now is the fact that Jin and Sun have been separated since the end of season 4, and almost as soon as they're reunited they die! I mean they keep trying to find one another, and Jin never even sees his daughter! I'm frustrated because of how much I'm rooting for them to get back together while understanding that they're about to die. It's pretty much the worst thing ever. Why can't they just get together and survive!? I will say that I did enjoy the beginning of season 3 with the cages, i never really got why that was such a bad time for so many people, and I liked Kate. Didn't realize until season 6 that most people didn't like her. Listening to Rewatch Podcast I get what they say about Kate but I still think she's cool.

So, Battlestar Galactica. The only time I didn't really care for the show was in the 2nd half of the 3rd season. That was really only because they had so much going on they were leaving plot threads dangling for what felt like several episodes. I also very much loved the end of BSG. This is probably my favourite show. That, or Breaking Bad.

@thatpinguino: Hmm, it's been a while since I played ME3. I know there's the occasional opportunity to meet up with characters around the citadel (they email you saying they're free) but I don't remember what happened with Tali in that situation, if it was a date or not.

I remember in ME3 that my Shepard had specific things to say to Tali since they were in a romance. On the ship there were unique dialogue and actions that only would have happened because we were in a relationship, not just leading to the final mission. (specifically the picture you receive) So maybe it depends on the character that you romance?

But yes, the criticism of the relationship system is mostly valid, they really gamify social interaction, whereas other friendships are developed mostly because of how strong the dialogue and voice acting both are.

Well this tweet just happened:

and so it seemed prudent to start a thread for people to send well wishes to @jeff and just generally say nice things.

Sorry for your loss Jeff, I can't imagine what that's like.

So there's co-op? Is it just like regular Dark Souls summoning?

Dragon Quest 8 contained a demo for Final Fantasy 12, and that was 2 years before FF12 actually came out. I can only hope that FF15 doesn't come out in 2017...

9 years old, I was getting a piano lesson during school in a small room just off the main office of my school. I heard teachers and staff talking about something they just heard on the radio. During recess later there were some people watching at TV in one classroom, but from outside we couldn't really tell what was going on. When I got home from school I realized there were no cartoons on, and that's when I found out what had happened, a combination of the TV and my sister. For reference, this was in Canada.

Being so young I didn't really get the significance of the event for a long time.
