No Gizmodo definitely deserves to go down with the ship. They got off far too lightly over that whole iPhone incident. And they didn’t even get banned from CES over the whole TV-B-GONE “prank”. One of their staffers did but the outlet didn’t, even though they didn’t apologise, condemn his actions, or show any remorse… Read more
Honestly. Good riddance to bad rubbish. In spite of the good things that have come out of it Gawker has been a blight upon the internet for too long. Their actions as a media company have been frequently unprofessional, often immoral, and occasionally downright illegal. For far too long they’ve hid behind the label of… Read more
I think this takes the biscuit for necroposting. You replied to this comment a good seven years after I originally posted this remark in 2009. I don’t even really use this account anymore so it’s a wonder I even saw this.
This, so much this. In addition to selective memory bias you also have the issue that our brains suck at applying the inherent granularity of time to our memory. We tend to clump it all together into "then" and "now". Which typically leads to people comparing things that happened over the course of a decade to what's… Read more
Putting that aside though PSO isn't some niche title, it's a long running franchise that has a sizeable fanbase. I mean sure it's never lit the west on fire, but it's not like Sega have any reason to believe they can't make money off it over here. Sega's management just needs to be replaced. I think the only thing… Read more
While this sort of attitude is allowed on Kotaku, this is not Kotaku. This is TAY. And this is a warning that if you keep this up you will no longer be allowed to post here.
While this kind of attitude is all the rage on Kotaku it's not tolerated on TAY. I often warn first and ban later, but your behaviour warrants a ban straight off the bat. Goodbye.
Liability doesn't come into it. Journalists, even the paid ones, sometimes make mistakes (case in point: two recent Kotaku articles posted by different authors managed to refer to Overwatch's Tracer as Australian despite the British flag on her costume). And the fact is that not everything is some big conspiracy.… Read more
This is the best way to explain it. I had trouble following it when just an example with three dragons was used but it's really quite straightforward if you start at the bottom and work your way up.
Uh, even though I love 3.5 I've got to say that PF is just a really clumsy attempt to fix 3.5. It gets some things right but screws up a bunch of other things such that the main advantage PF has over 3.5 is that it's still in print and new material is still being released. And yeah I share your criticisms of 4E, I… Read more
They were pretty decent in 3.5, especially once splatbooks hit the table.
Not sure why you're picking out the bard, bards in 3.5 were one of the better classes. The ones that struggled to be relevant outside the early levels tended to be stuff like fighters, monks (especially monks), and paladins.
I hate arguments that revolve around balance when it comes to D&D. It's a roleplaying game, not a computer game. The system doesn't need to be the arbiter of balance because it's not set in stone. 3.5's system may have balance issues up the wazoo but it does NOT mean you can't play a balanced game using it. Any half… Read more
Pretty sure Babylon 5 was on previous versions of the chart though.
Cause it's from the movie.
This is from the movie, it's a little different.
You missed one of the biggest flaws of FFXIII, that the characters have zero agency. Which might not in itself be a bad thing but it's kind of terrible when they realise they have no agency, decide that they're not going to be bound by fate, decide that they're going to go against what they're being manipulated into… Read more
The elements that made up the initial concept trailer for FFXIII Versus still all seem to be in the new XV. I mean it's not like they showed much in that initial trailer anyway. But XV still has Prince Noctis with his magic sword shield thing and his teleportation powers. I'm sure it's changed a lot during development… Read more
