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 someone who regulars the website - I wish there was a text post (and in general more TLC for website content beyond the forums) - not all of us are twitter/FB users

Not sure how 'hot' they are, but here's mine (hot takes seem like attention-seeking exercise - yes I acknowledge the irony/hypocrisy of my post)

  • Xbox 360 is the greatest all-around home console that has been made so far - and yes, that is despite the RRoD screwups. (This coming from someone who's been playing video games since the NES/Mega Drive days)
  • Conversely, MS convincing us (me included) that paying for online services that were once free is one of the worse things that's happened - especially in a world where Steam exists.
  • Dualshocks were never a great layout - easily outclassed by the time the OG Xbox and GC controllers were out (or anything with off-set sticks)
  • The terms 'overrated'/'underrated' are lazy terms that don't explain anything
  • The phrase 'it's not perfect' is an awful phrase that often is used to insincerely acknowledge perceived flaws while hiding or hand-waving potential criticism
  • As much as I enjoy CoD4 etc - the gear/weapon progression system it popularised one of the worst things to happen to multiplayer gaming. It's unbalanced and rewards hours played over skill learned
  • GoG is the only store that has done digital games 'right' - i.e. no DRM
  • 'Free games' on PSN/Xbox are glorified rentals
  • Conflict: Desert Storm II: Back to Baghdad is one of the best co-op games ever made (talking about the co-op experience more than the game quality)
  • If lots of people have a 'hot take' about something...it's not a hot take (I'm sure what I've written can be included in this)
  • Not enough time is spent on reviewing the technical quality of the final product - outside of Digital Foundry. That's not to say other criticism is not valid, but the pendulum has swung hard the other way leading to a lot of hand-waving of serious bugs and quality-control issues with games.
  • Review scores are fine as long as it's a 5-point scale or less.
  • VR has better uses outside of gaming than within gaming
  • Weapon degradation rarely enhances a game and often is a lame crutch for padding out 'gameplay'
  • The point above also addresses games with lots of crap to collect - lame padding that rarely benefits the player
  • Day of Reckoningseries was the last set of great wrestling games post No Mercy
