  • jedikv posted a message on the post 718: The Sandler Squad.

    It's funny that there's a few here that took such mild criticism of marvel properties personally and projected it as if 'marvel fans' are some sort of persecuted class.I like a good chunk of those mov...

    Jeff G articulated really well why the whole NFT enterprise does not make sense for a lot of common game dev use-cases - hope they clip that

  • jedikv posted a message in the forum topic Announcements from 6/8/21 'Cast. O'Dwyer joining P/T. Collabs with Ryckert, Grubb, Gamespot peeps. Will hire more F/T.. on the General Discussion board

    Looking forward to a more Dynamic Giant Bomb! I think given the very temporal nature of a lot of games media, rotating in more limited series with contractors seems to be the call.I do agree, as someo...

    Dang, gonna miss all 3 of you. Your voices have been a regular podcast mainstay for over a decade. All the best on your future projects!

  • jedikv posted a message on the post Greg Miller's Top 10 Games of 2020.

    I always appreciate the ability to honestly acknowledge the flaws while still articulating enjoyment is something. We all have our personal favourites that may not have hit the mark. Great read Greg.

  • jedikv posted a message on the post The HotSpot - Episode 393.

    Glad Jeff has become more aware on the issue of broken launches, for too long we overlooked the issues going back as far as Fallout 3.

    Most of these choices seem like "Good songs that were/are overplayed"

  • jedikv posted a message on the post The HotSpot - Episode 391.

    Strong refund policies (not the lame 2 hour ones steam/xbox has) are needed. With the option for consumers to refund games, developers are less likely to throw out broken games like Cyberpunk, Fallout...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 665: It'z Fun!.

    It's sad that there's folks that will run defence for CDPR despite the state this game was released and the shady nature of how the reviews were embargoed.Jeff G already shared his concerns about revi...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post West Coast Avengers: Assemble.

    @tomac: there's plenty of other influencers that will uncritically praise it - great to have some diversity. After watching this video, there's a lot of gameplay bugs that needs to be ironed out.

    I'll send you an invite - always down to run rings around Halo

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 642: Pump Up the Valium.

    The whole "game prices have to keep up with inflation" rationale falls apart when you take into account that the average wage growth has always been much lower than inflation, so the relative buying ...

    @indigozeal: Despite being on the same side, seems like we're talking past each other so I'm going to disengage. Have a good weekend.

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 632: A Place for Hair.

    @indigozeal: Sony has confirmed they have identified the leakers as not employees of ND/Sony - https://twitter.com/GIBiz/status/1256266981331910658Also Kotaku editor in chief confirmed with Sony it wa...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 632: A Place for Hair.

    @brainscratch: @indigozeal: According to Jason Schrier, he's sceptical of the 'disgruntled employee' story so far given the sources he's talked to at Naughty Dog. So yes, I will hold off (as did Jeff...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 632: A Place for Hair.

    @indigozeal: Probable is not certainty. That being said, I am (as a non influencing individual) do believe it was probably in part motivated by the past (or current) issues of working conditions. But ...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 632: A Place for Hair.

    @indigozeal: Well Jeff did explicitly state at the start of that segment that the 'disgruntled worker' part is unsubstantiated at this point. So he avoided confirming that till there's a confirmation ...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 630: NPCs Are Here.

    @sintes said:We absolutely don't need a remake of RE4. That game is perfect as it is, especially after the remaster. On the other hand, Code Veronica definitely needs a remake but I guess it would no...

  • jedikv posted a message on the post 628: Respect the Headcrab.

    I feel like complaints about 'jadedness' or 'negativity' are just ways to hand-wave legitimate criticism of games people personally like. Nothing is flawless. Disagreement is fine, but making weird 'p...
