Why the fuck they continue not casting Jason Statham in this role is beyond me...

Of course Patrick would link the J.J. Abrams TED talk, no surprise there.

Only thing is, out of the multitudes of genuinely inspirational and thought provoking TEDs, that one has to be one of the worst and most nonsensical of them all. It's glorified PR for his stupid hype machine (what I'm trying to say is...go check out TED, the other TED, it's truly wonderful).

Is it just me, or have a lot, and i mean a lot, of people been using the word "emblematic" ever since Jeff said it a week ago?

Par for the course, with a large segment of the GB community. The suckup is nauseating, and you should see how it is when there are livestreams going on. I remember Sean Coonce once dropping in and simply saying hello, and the next 5 minutes it was one long torrent of people hammering the shift key, screaming COOOOONCE MY MAN, HOWZIT GOIN BROTHER etc. like they were the closest friends with him.

VideoGames: the #1 battle ground for social justice. :rolleyes:

Few sum up this utterly ridiculous notion (that it's the gaming scene of all places, where the battle for equality happens) with as few words as you have. Well done.

And those who take this as me saying we shouldn't strive for equality, dignity, respect and love across sex, age and race - kindly go fuck yourselves, you're missing the point.

Not to shill the competition here, but there is a wonderful article on Polygon detailing the demise of Kaos Studios that also talks about THQ and their role in the chaos (sorry) surrounding Homefront.

Seriously it's a really great read.

I need a Quick Look. Stat.

Incoming! But...you just know it's gonna be Patrick covering it, and with its hot indie aesthetic, gonna get showered with praise.

This time it's deserved, although Patrick's "If it's Indie it's good, if it's mainstream it's probably bad" mentality is starting to annoy me.

I'm with you. I think he was a great addition to the team, but lately his shtick has begun to get on my nerves. For all his talk about being open minded, he's seems more and more dismissive of whole genres.
