    I was looking forward to the writing quality, as the creator Aaron Ehasz wrote pretty much every great Avatar episode. But I was sceptical of the 2D-3D blend. It was pretty awesome overall in look an...

    A 6 from Gamespot and a 9 from IGN is a pretty big disconnect. I need a Brad Shoemaker review before I put money down. Now more than ever.

    This series is great. The only fond memory I have of XIII's story is that moment where the Pope guy reveals he's actually your god disguised as the Pope. For better or worse, its a very final fantasy ...

    @sharkman said:@nietzschecookie:The very idea that in my mind had to make an analogy about working at a company a utopia has me sick.I think we agree 100% on that. I'll leave it at that.

    @sharkman: I'll break it down. What do you mean by "their"? Fries and Price are writers. They write stories under deadlines for a salary. That's their job. They don't sell things. Arenanet makes games...

    @sharkman: It can be tough to get up to speed on this story, given the speed at which news outlets are publishing new stories. They were not contractors, they were full time employees. And its already...

    Great write up! I can confirm as an Australian that Vanille's accent sounded wildly inconsistent and strange.

    Thanks Beastcrew. Y'all are the very best.

    @mems1224: I'll say this again, because it unfortunately keeps getting lost in all this, what about Fries?

  • NietzscheCookie posted a message on the post 540: Sailor Bruno Mars.

    @mems1224: I see many posts in this thread that share a similar story to the effect of 'I've had a job, and this is the way things are or the way the world is'. Just because the world is one way, does...

    @sirpsychosexy: That's what makes their use of the word 'customer' wildly inappropriate.

  • NietzscheCookie posted a message on the post 540: Sailor Bruno Mars.

    People need to stop using the word customer. Full stop. Volunteering in your workplace to do an AMA doesn't magically transform your job title into that of 'customer service'. I buy plenty of things, ...

    @catladon: I was thinking more about the game dev community. I'm pretty sure everyone who works in making games is in the loop on this story. And that's the same community that's 100% of Arenanet's fu...

    @catladon:While he could not have known prior, the negative PR storm alone makes this, by definition, a mistake for the company. Companies care about their image.

    @therealseaman: We are all criticising Arenanet for firing two people. Two. Fries was fired for defending Price from the hate mob and standing up for her as a professional colleague. You can't defend ...
