Amusing ego, last time I checked she wasn't a game maker and isn't in a position to really do anything meaningful other than inflame a situation that would have died out already after Quinn stopped trending.

And yet publishers have her "consulting" on games like Mirror's Edge 2.

I'm sure it's a nice editorial, but I won't read it. At least not on Polygon's site.

When did Mac become so annoying? I find myself turning his videos off about halfway through.

One thing I did find amusing is how fast the Marine runs. I think he could outpace the Quake guy.

You say that like its a bad thing...

Also really? This is the first game you played with acceleration?? That's kind of weird, by this time the Voodoo 3 was ruling supreme and Nvidia's TNT cards were quickly catching up, also Unreal was pretty much king of graphics and most games supported Glide or OpenGL. DirectX kind of sucked back then....

My first 3D card was a Voodoo2 back in.....1997, not sure when, probably late. I know the very first game I played it with was Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight. Back then you were hot **** if you had a Voodoo card. Gaming elite.

I remember going to Software etc. and just bragging about it to all the other store regulars, who were all hardcore PC gamers. Boy, those were the days.

Dark Forces II was the first game I played with 3D acceleration too, after months and months of playing it in software mode. I was blown away by how good it looked and how fast it ran.

I wasn't implying that it was a bad thing. Just that compared to lots of newer shooters, the Marine in AvP is *really* fast.

"How dare he put his own world-view and issues in the way of the review? But thatís exactly what he should be doing."

No, it isn't.

Too many reviewers are using reviews as soapboxes instead of just presenting the facts and letting readers make up their own minds: http://tinyurl.com/l8puses

This was one of the first games I played with 3D acceleration. Good times.

I did try replaying the game a couple of years ago, and it hasn't aged very well. The complete lack of a story makes it hard to care about what's going on.

One thing I did find amusing is how fast the Marine runs. I think he could outpace the Quake guy.

By the time I have a computer that can run this game, it'll be $5 in a Steam holiday sale.

He is wrong. Gamergate never was about misogyny. It's about lying colluding pseudojornalists. The fact that zoe is a despicable human being just adds to the sewer that gaming "journalism" is.

Why is she despicable?

Because she fucked her way to the top and uses her SJW game journalist buddies and indie game cronies to silence and screw with people who are critical of her.

Check out the Encyclopedia Dramatica article about her. It's quite illuminating (and very NSFW).

I'll bet the person who came up with that name was really pleased with himself.

Looking forward to this. The "real" FlatOut games were lots of fun.

The story, despite the retcon (ripley daughter), seems to not be too over done.

Ripley's daughter isn't really a retcon. She was mentioned in a scene in the Special Edition of Aliens back in the early 90s. She died in her 70s or something while Ripley was still in cryo.

Ripley's daughter is alluded to in the regular cut too, during a conversation between Ripley and Newt if I recall.

This game better tell me about the wizard and his hunger or close calls with death. It's not Gauntlet without the announcer telling you that your asshole friend just shot the food.

Who, me?

I never get tired of looking at the graph of RPS' page views going off a cliff in the wake of the Quinnspiracy.
