  • Why Do Games for Girls Suck?   3 years 16 weeks ago

    i completely agree with Brian.Women do tend to react with a holier than thou art air when a guy asks why dont they even try to play games so imagine what its like when they find out for the first time that I do . Im sorry but playing a game which stimulates my brain , blows off steam , or relaxes me is a much better use of my time than shoe shopping , getting a makeover , or doing my nails.I mean yeah i do these things but unlike a lot of girls it is not something i look forward to.And I do attribute my love for games to the fact I had an older brother and a mom who were both gamers and still are and the fact I never had to deal with lame Barbie like games.

     

    Lets face it if the first games you played were Pac Man , Punchout , River City Ransom and other such '' boyish '' games why would you even want to stop playing !?! Especially now when there are games like Rainbow Six , Elder Scrolls , Bioshock and really just great games for any preference.

  • Nintendo Announces 3DS Launch Titles   3 years 16 weeks ago

    I agree with chase Zelda would have been much better than some of the games at launch. I was rather disappointed in the selection that was offered.

  • Corpse Run 094: Hippocratic oaf   3 years 17 weeks ago

    You realize that you are nitpicking a world that is entirely devoted to cock-fighting right? Their entire culture, everyone's only hobby, and the main logo of their entire civilization. The fact that their doctors are manical is just one small symptom of the problem.

    The pokemon world is a living nightmare, when you think about it.

  • Grown Up Gaming: Balancing Your Time   3 years 17 weeks ago

    I agree with this article. I think that there is a lot that gaming can do. It is a great stress reliever. I really enjoyed reading this article and hope to read more from you soon.

    When you gamble at an online casino be sure to use the casino staff if you have any questions about the slot machines.

  • Player-2: Evolution   3 years 17 weeks ago

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. The evolution sequence does remind me of Digimon.

  • Review: The 3rd Birthday   3 years 18 weeks ago

    It's not a good thing when the best parts about your game are the movies. That means you should have just made a movie.

  • Swag Tester Results: Be Thankful For Your Scribblenauts Rooster Caps   3 years 18 weeks ago

    Woah, that's crazy. Check your email Sasafras because we still have the Scribblenauts hat. Sorry for the intense delay on that one, lol.

    honestly I never knew that I was chosen for this lol.

  • Corpse Run 092: Barking up the wrong tree   3 years 18 weeks ago

    I learned long ago that there are lots of people out there that I call the "professionally offended". These are people that make it their duty in life to be "offended" by as much as possible. These are people that try to make you uncomfortable when you are eating a steak because they happen to be super-veagan. They are to be ignored and laughed at whenever possible. Thankfully sites like FARK exist for just such a reason.

     

    I won't even say I give much of a shit about violence against women because so often it's a two-way street (have you ever seen how emotionally viscous women can be against men and, especially, other women?! Those emotional scars take longer to heal that some bruises, let me tell you). My view is, if one is accepting of the view that there are a bunch of a guys out there that deserve a swift kick in the ass, then there also has to be a bunch of women. I know, I know, how egalitarian of me.

  • Stop Complaining! A defense of the traditional A-F (60-100) game review scale.   3 years 18 weeks ago

    I disagree with poilbrun. I don't think the 100 point scale is necessary at all. Does it really matter whether the game got a 59% or 0%? Both scores mean the same thing; don't play this game. Reviewers gear their reviews towards gamers, reccomending whether they should play the game or not. That's the purpose of a review, not to say which game is better, but to say which game is worth your troubles. It doesn't matter if one game got a 46% and another got a 49%. Yes, the game that got a 49% may be seen as slightly better in the eyes of the reviewer, but he still isn't reccomending that game to the gamers. Why not have both of those games receive Fs? Although one is better than the other, neither is worth your time.

    And even if you really want to know which of the two games not worth your time is better, keep in mind that there is a written review accomodating the score. You can't always take the score given at face value, even on your precious 100 point scale. You have to read the review, and based on the review, you can judge whether the game is for you or not. For example, let's say the sequel to your favorite game receives a 68%. However, if you read the review, it may say something along the lines of "the single player mode is pretty good, but a shallow multiplayer mode coupled with weak graphics brings this game down". If you don't care about the multiplayer mode, if you're indifferent about graphics, and if you really want to play the single player mode to see what happens to the protagonist next, you shouldn't hesitate to buy it because it received a 68%. Now, let's talk about the base 13 letter scale that you criticized. If you really care whether a game received a 59% or a 0% (which you shouldn't), you will be able to tell by the written review whether the game was closer to a 59% or a 0%. One reviewer says of Game A "I really wanted to like this game, but it just made a few costly mistakes that brought the package down. I'm optimistic about the already announced sequel though, because it they fix the mistakes, the game could be very good". The same reviewer said of Game B "This game was an atrocity. I'd rather watch paint dry than play this game. I don't know what the developers were thinking, as this may be the worst game I ever played." Guess which game is closer to the 59%. You get the idea.   

  • Review: Dead Space 2   3 years 19 weeks ago

    There's definately room for a 3rd game. I'd hate to spoil anything though, but the ending of Dead Space 2 leaves room for many sequels. Especially since the ending really doesn't explain a damned thing. I'd compare it to the 2nd Resident Evil game. Actually, they have a lot in common when you get down to it. They represent a switch from an outbreak in a small out of the way location, to one in a massive, densly populated city. They even end in a similar manner. I just hope Dead Space 3 doesn't take place in the Sprawl again.

    And yes the Wiki is a bit cumbesome. I'd recommend viewing it with pop-up/add-ons turned off as otherwise all of the little flash adds and etc make every damned page take forever to load. And navigating it is cumbersome as well. But if you want to figure out whats going on, it's just what you have to do.

  • Player-2: Pokemon Preschool   3 years 20 weeks ago

    Hahaha, not ALL of them no. I was a bit surprised though when I was walking through the playpen of the Pokemon Day Care in only to have all of the 4-year-old trainers gang up on me with their crappy pokemon.

  • Review: Dead Space 2   3 years 20 weeks ago

    Judging from the ending of the game, is there possiblity for a 3rd installment? What do you think? Also, haven't read the wiki yet, but it feels like something that'd be annoyingly cumbersome.

  • Player-2: Pokemon Preschool   3 years 20 weeks ago

    Wait wait wait wait wait wait WAIT. So now all the characters are toddlers?
