The number doesn't tell me a damn thing.

But neither does a review without one. In the end, you are reading something subjectively analyzed and all you really learn is what "random dude/girl on the internet" thought about a game.

Imo the only way to properly "review" a game is by playing it, and ergo, making it a WTF is.... kind format, or a let's play (even that can have far reaching failings, with complex games that have depth later in gameplay that goes beyond tutorial ;p)

So a good representation of a game takes at least a few hours of gameplay into account. At that point, what is shown is no longer subjective, but an objective review.

Written reviews are simply not very useful, score or not.

Who is blaming all men? No one.

A weird defensiveness always emerges whenever someone talks about male privilege. You're not personally to blame for being privileged unless you actively work toward maintaining that privilege at the expense of others, or stick your head in the sand and deny it even exists. If you don't do those things, no one is blaming you.

For most males, this topic is poisoned to the core thanks to radical feminists. [...]

Could you elaborate on that? I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

It means it's hard to argue with good intentions when the other side wants to replace the male privilege with a female privilege. Simplifying the issue here, but it's why you won't find much common ground anymore in these topics bot on the web and irl. Sadly, at least in our media world here radical opinions get more attention and thus are more known. I would otherwise be entirely for gender equalization, no let me rephrase that. I am 100% for gender equalization, but I am against feminism that aims to invert the situation, instead of fixing it...

Sexism in gaming needs to be solved, but I am not seeing anyone showing what needs to change. Just screaming "dah beez sexism heeer" in the wind isn't gonna do a whole lot..... in fact, to actually fix it, you would likely have to start in the earliest child years through school up to 20 years or so. In reality, this is not a problem males create, it is a problem society creates. Meaning, to fix it, you need to change systems and how they work. Not the people who are already THROUGH that system. You can only maybe call to their intelligence, but someone with intelligence wouldn't be a sexist arse anyway.

This is why I don't think a roundup is a good idea after all. Rather than scraping the bottom of the barrel a couple times a day, just let the decent KS projects float to the top as they naturally do and give them their own post.

The thing is, who decides what is a decent KS project.... imo it's better to have a constant stream of information, than filtered information...

Blue must be pretty influential in this respect, getting mentioned on Bluesnews must be a pretty big deal for a campaign that's not otherwise well publicised. This way more campaigns each get less exposure, which is fairer. Being fair in this regard isn't really Blue's job but with great power comes great responsibility and all that.

As much as I like bluesnews, I have my doubts that a link here in this category has much effect on a campaigns success or not.. in the end major deciding factor is gonna be big communities... or general public interest (ie, hype)

But it's one of the few categories where I click on all links ;9 Because you never know what might be behind them. A true gem, or just.. a project with nostalgia but barely a chance to make funding...

All these Kickstarters should be listed under "examples: How not to run your Kickstarter"

If you want my money, you gotta tell me what for... and you got 3 minutes to do it, in your intro video. And to show me that you are competent I want to see gameplay, not just images of irrelevant stuff.

Universe Edge has a time frame reaching up to 2017 (wow!).. Cat Simulator has cats without fur ... you know.. FUR, what most cats HAVE) ? ^^

Also... the best cat simulator is still a real cat. So you can feel neglected and ignored in real-life. ;p

That is an awful Kickstarter. "Watch the alpha trailer above to give you an idea of where we are at." - they've done a low quality model and ripped annoying audio from a meme. Shut up and take my money!

Unless they're going for a Goat Simulator type of game, I don't think a cat simulation would be very interesting. I don't know where my cat is now but at a guess he's snoozing somewhere where he's hidden from view but getting the sun. Lovely for him I'm sure, but not in ways that a simulator will recreate.

To be fair, they did show cats with hair, and they looked really good. But as you say, they show NOTHING about the game, or their goals. It's just "look at this" and "give us your money"

the hell

Maybe we were spoiled by Pillars of Eternity and all these big KS projects... you know, where people told you what they want to do, and how much money they need for it.

So that app does none of what they claim. It shows you some pics you took, tells you who you talk to most, least, and who tags you most.

Shocking, deep hitting stuff there.

You do realize it's a marketing gimmick by Ubisoft for Watchdogs, right?

IP adress IP adress

Ok and how does a dynamic IP tell them who I am. Nevermind if you couple it with things like private browsing with tracking turned off, plus adblock, ghostery, VPN, et al. They don't know my family and co-workers as I don't have them on my FB account. And I only have a handful of friends on FB. Even for the few photos I'm tagged in, it's still under a fake name. About the only thing they know is that I'm in Canada. No, these companies only know what you let them.

Aside from that being true, you should really google "browser footprint"
-> https://panopticlick.eff.org/

For me
Your browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 4,070,567 tested so far.

And no, private browser windows, dynamic IP and VPN do NOT affect this tracking

Aside that, watch the big talks from 30c3 to understand how little your fake profile does to actually keep you hidden. They can reverse your identity out of anonymized data sets... and those are freely sold by nearly ALL major infrastructure providers.

DIY Guide: Smartphone VR Headset Plays Oculus Rift Games for $20.

I'm tempted to try this, just b/c I have a decent phone (Galaxy S4), webcam, and some of the other parts.

Has anyone tried this? Thoughts? I bet the lag is bad.

If the lag is bad, then it will make you sick... so better save that money for the real deal.

And that grill is genius. Simply amazing no one ever up with something like that before.

Probably because
1) Someone already came up with that
2) You can buy A FAR BETTER VERSION of this on e-bay for 20 bucks
google "Grilliput Folding Anywhere Charcoal Grill "

Foldable grills aren't exactly new...

How is that better when is requires assembly? Nope, this one is better. Just roll it up or unroll it and pound in 3 spikes, done.

It's better because you can buy it on ebay right now Obviously.

While you are right, that linked one is better designed, but it is not buy-able....

No it really looks bad for AMD, lower costs in CPU division means less R&D and thus, Intel domination for eternity. And I bet 90% of their GPU business profit is from crypto mining and SoC's (console GPU)

Overall, AMD isn't dead, but it's irrelevant. And I think that's worse.

Also gotta love the bad management decisions. Broke contract with Global Foundries and had to pay massive contract penalty only to run crying back the them after TSMC didn't deliver. AMD is run by retards

same here, the concept is extremely smart and there is such massive depth to the simulation behind it... no 2 games are ever the same

And hey, my first game (tutorial ~.~) ended in a death.. heh Got too trigger-happy and tried to solve a Quest the hard-way (guns blazing and with little tactic) but turns out, me against 14 cap ships, bad idea.
