  • TheSquarePear posted a message on the post The 10 Year Screened (Virtual) Reunion - Video Version.

    IMO Screened made best use of the old CMS for long-form features and reviews before Polygon and Vice came around but can't remember what they were about. All I know is Alex is still awesome at writing...

    I can't speak for the German "gamers" and I wouldn't really want to but as a fellow european it seems like there are proportionally more PC gamers in northern continental Europe with appetite for sing...

    Well done Alex. I actually shed a tear at the end but I'm an easy cry hehe and Everlong is one of my favorite Foo Fighters songs. Quite some strong tracks on that playlist.

    Some of this complaining sounds just like the nostalgia people have for movies and music:- "All movies are about superheroes these days."- "Noone plays any real instruments anymore."Then the same peop...

    I think I'll pass, even having read some of the "Saxon Stories"/"Last Kingdom" books and having some interest in history in general. Judging on the trailers and past games I don't trust Ubisoft to gen...

    I think it's awesome that they put in so much effort to keep things going and that we get to hear some of the crew more than usual e.g. Jan building legos and Alex drumming. This is kind of wild conje...
