In my imaginary gaming journalism utopia, game reviews use a Pass/Fail indication at the top of the page followed by a short(ish) but concise review that lacks spoilers. The more enthusiastic the reviewer is about a strength or weakness, the more descriptive they must be about why. This is the digital age so if the review is based online examples of "poor sound" or "poor graphics" should be available to sample. (screenshots, sounds files, etc. Paired with opposite comparisons for context of course). Also, the only thing in the headline for said review is the title of the game. No quirky word plays, puns, etc.

That's my fantasy. In reality, I basically do the same thing Beamer described below.

I think Ars does a "should you play it? yes/no." I like that.

Kotaku does that but we're not allowed to mention them here... Redface

The two biggest "wtf highscores" from CGW in my memory are Doom 3 and Black & White. It wasn't them being disingenuous, though; their reviewers were just as caught up in hype as everyone else. Hype they themselves fostered, but still.

Definite pass. As much as I loved KB, they really need to make forward progress with a real sequel.

Every time a console tried for extensibility, it failed. The N64 Expansion Pack was a flop, the N64 Disk Drive never made it out of Japan, the Sega CD had only a 10% adoption rate, the 360 HDDVD drive an utter disaster.

You know what people do when they want to upgrade their games console? They get a newer console.

in particular No Country. maybe that emptiness is the point, but i came away from that film feeling almost a nihilistic void.

That was exactly the point of that movie. Or lack of a point.

I'm a sucker for O Brother, and who doesn't think Lebowski is one of the crown jewels of the 20th century?

I'm talking about the show which premiered this week. I didn't find it as quirky-funny as the Coens' material oft is.

Well what'd everyone think of Fargo.

I found this particular black comedy heavy on the black and light on the comedy.

Unless you are into game development, like to participate in/see the iterative products of the game development process itself, I think it is best to just leave projects like this alone until they are completed.

Wish I'd had the sense to do that, but I'd desperately wanted more Terraria.

I feel so dirty

So I got a bunch of Starbucks beans as they were on sale for $6/12oz, but these have different packaging. Upon closer inspection I've failed to discover any mention of the usual "bring this empty bag to Starbucks for a free cup of coffee."

Blue, ever since your story about the bunch of empty bags I've grown accustomed to shopping with a free coffee in hand (local grocery chain has Starbucks in it). If they say my empty bags are no good, I'm just gonna be fuurrriiiooouuussss.

Well, not furious, but mildly disappointed.

TXAA isn't much of a performance hit. AO probably will be, in a game like this.

the load times do though. On an SSD, longer than 1m....

I'll hazard a guess you're waiting for everyone in the game to load.

Like water and electricity, it has become difficult to function in society without it

And it's things like that which make you sound stupid. The internet is used 97% for vapid nonsense. The other 3% could be done without it.

Finally a game where each skill tree looks fun to play as.

Did you not play Dragon's Dogma?

People are hypercritical of Star Citizen because of this video. It's been in development for years, it has a huge amount funds, and this is all they have to show. And they aren't even using their own engine.

At this rate it will be a decade before they have a finished product.

I've gotten over bitching about them, they're here to stay and we already deal with plenty of em...

You deal with plenty of them. I'll keep not buying games I'd otherwise love to play because of such fucking arbitrarily intrusive and wholly unnecessary schemes.

No surprise there, another game I don't even have to ponder buying.

Unfortunately this practice isn't relegated solely to big publishers. I was about to jump on Age of Wonders 3 the other day until, imagine that, I find out it involves some dumbass fucking login.
