This morning I read Phil Kollar's post about why Alan Wake didn't sell well. It was a pretty good post. Rather than add my 2 cents into the long string of comments at the bottom of that post, I thought I would post my own.
A shoutout to you, the little people...um, I mean great people on this site.
Surprisingly enough, a new study has shown that yes, they do.
Am I the only one who has trouble understanding the dialogue in games a lot of the time? Am I the deaf one?
Wow, the peasants are revolting! You'd think Bobby Kotick had just publicly ordered a mob hit or something.
There's been a lot of hubbub (I really love that word) recently about the user content on this site. Many lament those users who post "meaningless" blog or forum posts, ostensibly just to get points for leveling up on the GI site. (Really, once you're level 5 and your stuff shows up on the front page, is there any real purpose to point whoring? Who cares if you're level 5 or level 6 or level 7?)
What is the point of video games making you do stupid and boring stuff? What games have you played where they make you do them?
Ugh. I hate hype machines about upcoming games. Don't get me wrong. I love previews where we see screen shots and get some idea of what the story's going to be about.
Where I put you to sleep by commenting on multiple topics rather than boring you to death with just one.
In yesterday's "I Quit" blog, I mentioned my other competitive multiplayer pet peeve: ignoring objectives in order to pad your stats.
No, this isn't a post saying that I'm leaving GI or anything like that (and hopefully this text also being visible will make it so that nobody thinks I am).
