I enjoy reading reviews from that perspective. It adds a flavor you don't see elsewhere, and he's small enough not to have been coopted like the bigger ones.

Having a blast with DG2, BTW. It's still DG, but there are several new features which changing things up a lot. It's much more tactical. You can't just pack the towers in like before. You have to think more about how and where and why to place towers. Highly recommended.

I like DG 2 as well. My real problem is that #%^*%! Creston and his stupid-high scores! I'm still trying to beat each of them in the campaign levels. It's like he has dev-level knowledge or something. CRESTOOOON!!!!!!!! Furious2

How does that work exactly? Just whoever is in your Steam friends list?

I blame the SWJs.

Small Wars Journal? Were you trying to do Social Justice Warriors as an acronym? I'm confused either way.

Social Warriors (of) Justice!

Yeah, I flubbed the initials. By the time I realized it it was an hour later and I was like, "F'it"

If you didn't have gaming news sites colluding to promote them in the first place, ignoring them might work. But when they're controlling the narrative? That's the problem, as that's how they get attention.

Who cares who controls the narrative? What matters is who controls the production budgets, and all they care about is making a game you'll a) buy, and b) enjoy enough that you convince your friends to buy.

As long as the games you want are still getting made, just let this whole thing play out. I have faith that the developers whose products I've enjoyed for the past couple of decades can figure out how to create for a larger, more diverse audience without compromising quality.

In fact, they've already been doing that. Games are more diverse and inclusive than ever, and as a result more interesting.

Has DayZ improved at all? It's been almost a year since it became available, and I'm surprised people are still picking it up given the mess I hear it's in.

I've been having a lot of fun with Starpoint Gemini 2. It was a bit tough at first, because I was out leveling my income, which meant I was having trouble even on 1 v 1 battles, but once I got a destroyer, it all turned around. Now I've got a battleship, and I'm taking everyone to school.

Yeah, that was my experience as well. I quickly outleveled my ship, and was getting destroyed within seconds in most fights. At first I was mad and stopped playing, but then I changed my attitude. I realized that we, as gamers, have an expectation of always being able to win. In this game, you simply can't. You have to run, hide, avoid confrontation, and bide your time. Run cargo, only take missions where you can get in, complete the objective, and get out fast. Stealth around mining asteroids, check targets to see if you have a chance before you engage, etc. Once you realize that, the game is fun once again. And like you said, eventually it pays off, and you start dominating.

A game that doesn't instantly cater to being an all powerful god? Tell me more!

Jdreyer?

I assume. In my attempt to mock the extremism that often populates threads like this I missed the mark, and I think some folk took me seriously.

one of the most mismanaged gaming projects in history

that is such an exaggeration I'm stunned silent

It's even more mismanaged than Duke Nukem Forever. VGReagle told me so.

All I care about.. is something they haven't touched yet at all.. Squadron 42 will be SP.. but what about a stand-alone OFFLINE persistent sandbox?

Isn't that in beta already? I think they named it the "Dangerous Elite" module or something.

Okay , I admit I chuckled at that.

AWESOME!

I knew it all sounded too good to be true.

Don't worry about it. It's all stored securely on the cloud.

The Xbox did not fail in Japan, is not continuing to fail in Japan, because people here don't want to buy a product from a foreign company. It is failing because of something intrinsic to the product in question - something that simply doesn't appeal to Japanese consumers.

It's failing, and try to stay with me here, because... it's a giant piece of underpowered shit.

Beyond that, what "success" Microsoft had in Japan with the 360 may have tainted the brand over there. Since their big set piece in Japan was a lot of independently-developed Japanese titles that tended to look more like doujin projects than anything, the reputation was that the Xbox was the console that the creepy otaku bought (even bigger titles like IDOLM@STER didn't exactly change this reputation). As a result, it's not a huge surprise that mainstream gamers there aren't buying the One, and the people who bought a 360 still don't have any content yet that really is geared to them.

Sounds like they have a worldwide problem. And the fact that their stupid series of fumbles (always online, under powered, bundled with kinect) pissed off the home base, they've really left themselves with nothing.

I have to say the most positive thing is they nailed the atmosphere of the first movie 100% and I love the retro sci-fi look. Something I really wish Ridley Scott would have done with the Prometheus pseudo prequel.

Seriously, can we never mention Prometheus again? So, so stupid.
