Ugh please don't kill Minecraft.

He was already worth hundreds of millions. I have to question Microsofts sanity in buying such a property, Minecraft has already sold through to most markets, I'm not sure how they ever expect to make back that kind of money. Mojang hasn't exactly been successful outside of Minecraft either.

They could fund several studios to make new IP with that kind of bling. Hell go buy Take Two, you've got RDR and GTA then.

Everything demonstrated so far has been really encouraging but I don't preorder games anymore. Hopefully it holds up, I would love a good survival horror game set in the Alien universe.

We're talking about video games and people that write about video games and the people that play them. We can do that without assigning it world-shattering importance. It's called perspective.

Tell that to the people/press who write gems like "losing our identity is annihilation" and who belabor broad moralistic themes then try to apply them to everyone. Holy melodrama batman.

I'm all for some levity and perspective here, too bad its in short supply

I'm moving in the next few weeks and I just found and played my Dreamcast for a few hours with my oldest(7 year old) a couple of days ago. I wish the Powerstone series would have taken off. They were a blast to play.

Powerstone and Skies of Arcadia were my favs though there were several other good games on there. I hated the Dreamcast controller though.

A bit of SJW hypocrisy. The head of NeoGAF, one of the most prominent people to call every gamer a misogynist, has this to reply about a girl gamer that goes against his narrative.

Who are the real misogynists in this, one has to ask.

Do as I say, not as I do apparently.

Fucking hilarious.

I don't really see how it was disruptive but whatever. Many people don't bother with the threads below the popular threads section so I wouldn't be surprised to see discussion continuing to leak over here.

General Discussion > NFL Week One
2. No subject Sep 9, 2014, 09:03 Verno
 
Romo was looking rough on the weekend

I can't stand the Seahawks but they looked damned impressive, the only thing stopping Marshawn Lynch is going to be an injury.

Bills did surprisingly okay even with that backup CB, they are always my worst picks.

Biggest disappointment last week was KC, felt like they weren't even on the field mentally.

I was sad to see the Saints lose too but it was a good game.

But there's a flipside to that: if you consider yourself part of a community/culture, you must concede that you help to shape it in some small way. And that supports Alexander's argument that people have a responsibility to address problems. In the end, the only people that really have a right to complain are those who genuinely believe there are no problems in gaming culture.

We are shaping it. We're fighting back against labels and misplaced silliness, perpetuated by a few professional victims who found sympathetic political leaners in the press. I think there are problems in gaming culture just like pretty much anything else you can think of but I think they are overstated and I'm tired of being talked down to by hypocrites.

Dude if I hated every team that has employed someone morally reprehensible in the NFL then there wouldn't be any teams to root for. I respect your opinion, as a lifetime dog owner I get it but I've followed the Jets for like 30 years and this one thing isn't going to ruin that. For a long time I wasn't even following the NFL itself, just keeping up with what was going on with the Jets.

Now if they would just start rewarding loyalty with performance

None of those are RPS. It was phrased badly but "gamers are over" wasn't attacking gaming culture, it was attacking bullying and bigotry in gaming. Nothing has proven their point more than the response.

Ironic because the people engaging in that behavior likely aren't reading or reachable by these silly little editorials that try to paint everyone with the same brush.

They could have avoided all of this by not trying to suppress the Zoe Quinn bullshit but their censorship efforts just galvanized people. Their damage control has been even more woeful. Most reasonable people are tired of hearing about it at this point.

Yes people, please whine even more. Your tears are delicious.

I don't know how you get whining from the posts here, most people are just getting indifferent to this ongoing silliness and rightfully so.

Pathetic. Just that the "Social Justice Warrior" has entered into anyone on this sites' lexicon is pathetic.

Bills did surprisingly well last night, did not see that one coming. I still can't believe the Saints lost but Atlanta was outstanding so I guess they deserved it.

Also obligatory GO JETS

Videogames are absolutely for everybody but RPS isn't for me anymore. Sorry John but too much non-gaming silliness.

Windows 2000 and Windows Vista were actually more popular than Windows XP and Windows 7, respectively, among power users.

Windows 2000 adoption was relatively niche and Vista was fairly maligned in power user circles IMO.

Most sports aren't even sports. They're glorified hobbies. Baseball, golf, et al. are all hobbies IMO.

Err no, they're competitive physical activities which is pretty much the textbook definition of a sport.

Blah blah blah. Verno doesn't think it's a big issue cus it doesn't effect him so he is going to marginalize the problem to suit his opinion.


Blah blah blah indeed. You literally googled an obscure problem that you have no personal experience or knowledge of and I'm the one trying to marginalize something. Other people have opinions and you can't force yours on them or make them agree with you. Wahhhh I don't like trading, no one else is allowed to! Tough fuckin shit.
