In the PlayStation blog post today, Ryan said: “ we have plenty of blockbuster experiences coming your way on PS4, including Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima.” Read more

Why apologize? Because I don’t think we should be running uncensored screenshots of animations of young characters from popular fiction having sex. I’m not saying we should write about it or even in some fashion show people what it is we’re talking about, but how we presented it exceeded what many readers expected.

Noted, but I don’t have control of that. My focus was on addressing the readers. I’ll ask our tech people if that’s possible, but it’s not an option I’ve pursued. I tend to not think about advertisers when we run our posts.

We have multiple editors. I don’t see every article. But, as I said, the buck still stops with me about what we publish.

Yeah, noted. It’s not what we want. In fact, these headline-less posts, which we call “blips” are intended to be short enough that you don’t need to click on them to read them. I erred in making this one too long. Sorry about that.

Pretty good! Those thin bars near the.. is that a vent next to the game card slot? They’ve snapped off, but the rest of the system has been fine. Screen’s doing great, too.

I’ve got drift, too, but I’m not even getting far enough to have to deal with that at the moment! And I’d been able to get around it easily for games like Baba Is You, which was one of my recent Switch obsessions.

Thanks! Is there more stuff from vanilla Destiny 2 that’s now available to me and worth doing? All these Strikes have unlocked, for example. I can’t tell if there are new quests, too. I’ve only just gained access to the Tower.

Oh, the “h” was in there. You just couldn’t see because it was obscured by an open car door.

I find what we cover now far more interesting and less at risk of just being done on a gaming company’s own blog. People-based stories are always the most interesting, but in gaming they’re also often the hardest to find.

It could be hard to get a full-time job if a visa is an issue, but you can freelance from pretty much anywhere. If that’s appealing, then it’s down to the quality and originality of your pitches. Good luck!

I just read through Priest’s ongoing run on Deathstroke for DC. It’s great. A complex ensemble piece about the DC Universe’s most lethal assassin, his family and the many skeletons in his closet. It’s a very confusing read, so best to start with the first trade and go from there.

I think it’s part of what people get out of our work, but I’m always wary of thinking of people who play games as consumers first. I think of games as art as much as I think of them as a business, and so, while we will always cover aspects of gaming that involve players being taken advantage of or companies doing Read more

It’s certainly worth talking about the Epic store’s missing features, the impact of Epic chasing exclusives, anxieties people have about Epic’s previous data breaches and other things people bring up. Having played only one game via the EGS, I can’t say the store is all that impressive, but I didn’t hate it either. Read more

I ask everyone to press the z-trigger to auto-lock onto whatever they need to focus on. Then they can circle-strafe if need be.

There were haters before and there are haters now. For some, GG is mostly a thing of the past. For others, the dynamics of perpetual outrage continue. Read more
