I find it to be in the exact same, maybe worse, position that the Wii was in my gameplay habits; it does not exist. I own a WiiU, the Zelda Wind Waker edition, and it just sits there. I never have a good reason to turn it on and there aren't better options for me to play anything on the WiiU opposed to my PS3 or PS4.
Wow, so this thread is still going strong? OK, then. Anyway, the site is still awesome.Some content has been hampered by Patrick leaving for Chicago, Alex leaving for New York, Ryan Davis' unfortunate passing, and then Ian's time as an intern coming to a close. Hell, Ian leaving alone limits the video content they can do and is why we haven't had a new Pathfinder video in almost 6 months (on top of Rorie getting super sick for a while as well).
I love the content. I think everything is worse my time and money. I get podcasts, video content, a (mostly) great community, and more. I also want to directly support them in their endeavors. The tone of the site has changed, no matter how many people have convinced themselves they have. I also think its pretty laughable to say they are all tip toeing around not having any ideas for stuff to do. Anyone who pays attention knows they have plans but they need more people before they come about.
Jeff is not openly hostile towards gaming. People just do not pay attention or only think of the stuff he doesn't like. While I don't have the "don't let the door hit you on the way out" mentality, I do think that if you don't like it don't support it but I have yet to really read one super valid response about why someone let their sub lapse because of quality or content.
This doesn't feel like a problem to me. What I think is worse is when a video game (Hello Kotaku, you trashy ass site!) related website watermarks screenshots that they didn't take or that aren't exclusive to their sites.
