Op Ed

The Astronauts - Reboot your AAA brain with indie games. Thanks Joao.
The catch is that you will understand the benefits of rebooting your AAA brain only after you do it. You cannot explain it to someone who’s not a father what it feels like to be one. You can throw “unconditional love” and “life forever changed” at them, and they will say they get it. But they don’t. And they will only see that after they become fathers themselves.

Kotaku - The Contemptible Games Journalist- Why So Many People Don’t Trust The Gaming Press (And Why They’re Sometimes Wrong). Thanks nin.
Welcome to the world of games journalism, where, at any moment, someone is certain that you suck at your job. It's not the only job of this type, but it's the one we've got here. It's the one under a more intense microscope than ever these past couple of weeks.

re: Kotaku - The lady bitch doth protest too much, methinks. Somehow we're supposed to pity game reviewers for all of the stuff they get from publishers, and understand how everyone involved in the whole Florence/Eurogamer mess are basically good people. Bullshit. It's just easier for the game companies to buy the reviewers that it would be for them to hire more P.R. weasels.

No offense, but you couldn't have figured out beforehand that a KOTAKU article was going to be a big "YAY GAMING PRESS!" fluff-fest? They're at the absolute top for being publisher/PR cheerleaders. (Comes from being owned by gawker, I guess.)
