• Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Are games today more or less fun to you?. on the General Discussion board

    It's a reductive way of looking at things, because it always boils down to the individual. I was a 10-year old Swedish kid playing Final Fantasy VI and Earthbound, being completely awestruck. I will n...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Randy Pitchford being sued for embezzlement and other weird stuff. on the Randy Pitchford board

    @puchiko: Oh hell no, for two reasons: firstly because the staff has integrity and tact. And then there's no way you can defend his comments with a "Oh, Randy, you silly boy!" Not in today's polarized...

    @puchiko: @bigbadbieber: I'm fairly sure they've said Pitchford is quite the character. Historically they would say he came off as very enthusiastic for his games and games in general, but that he als...

    A game studio CEO of a very successful developing house has plenty of funds to invest in real estate speculation, something a savvy lawyer can use when negotiating for said real estate. It's a smart w...

    @bleichman: With this in mind and if it were a reality, a marketing firm can do whatever they want. But the way to pull out the weeds is to complain and force a company to better themselves. This shit...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Bethesda Refusing Refunds for Fallout 76. on the Fallout 76 board

    @bleichman: There's a difference between not liking something because of its content, and not liking it because of poor craft-- I place Fallout 76 in the latter category due to its issues. If a produc...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Bethesda Refusing Refunds for Fallout 76. on the Fallout 76 board

    @bleichman said: For me it seems strange that people want refunds for a "bad" game. I'm fine with refunds if you haven't played the game or played less than 1 hour or whatever. I can also see deceptiv...

    IGN's Metacritic summary actually has me interested:The straightforward simplicity of Darksiders III is a refreshing change of pace after exploring so many dense open-world games. That simplicity does...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic After rants and raves about the story: I'm just not seeing it.. on the God of War board

    Here's the thing: all those emotional moments are present in a family. Perhaps not with the same frequency, but you can bet your ass a child will act out, or shut down, or have moments of 'melodrama' ...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Safety question for European Duders.. on the Off-Topic board

    What you happened upon is the exact same thing as it is in the US: a few people in a couple of areas being emboldened by the infantile courage of their political leaders, and minorities suffering beca...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Is there a turn of phrase used these days that rubs you the wrong way?. on the Off-Topic board

    "That's racist." Didn't mind it before. Grown adverse to it now. People are, through the instinctive use and sheer frequency, genuinely programming themselves to react when a person in conversation i...

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic Conservative imams in Iraqi Kurdistan issue a fatwa against PUBG. on the General Discussion board

    A fatwa such as this sounds like men out-of-sync with secular society. It's not unlike the witch hunt against violent games some 15-20 years ago.

  • Rahf posted a message in the forum topic What do you prefer: graphics, story or gameplay?. on the General Discussion board

    If I'm allowed to make a Venn diagram, then the overlap between story and gameplay rule supreme over the other alternatives. But then I include plot with story in this case.

    I'm on the side of duders and dudettes that said this was a huge misfire. In a void, this product isn't too controversial. But the pre-show hype and subsequent arena for this announcement was a massiv...
