Because you are borderline obsessed with it and in your write up of the Eurogamer feature you've basically decided they're being contrary for the sake of it. It's ridiculous. You've already decided it's the best thing ever without trying it. Someone who has tried it who mentions the nausea problem and you're all "meh, that's just EG seeking hits". You are to Rift what Ecosse is to Nintendo.
OK. And why would that be?
I'll laugh so hard when rift makes you vomit.
As such, I think it would be quite humorous if, when you finally get to use the thing you spend 24 hours a day thinking about, it made you want to be sick.
I won't deny I wrote the thing with a deliberately 'teasy' slant (but teasing was the extent of it). The level of issues Jeffrey had was in fairly stark contrast to the vast majority of other write-ups (including EG's own E3 impressions). So, forgive me if I felt the need to address the tone of the article. I felt it was needed and I think I justified my point of view. Besides, I agreed with the point he was labouring - I'd even wrote about the issue before on the same website.
I have a feeling that Jeffrey would have a bigger problem with the comparisons of his appearance to that of a sex pest, as opposed to an article which merely illustrates a particular point of view. Nah, that's just 'banter' after all.
I do find it somewhat galling too that you (along with others) are somehow perfectly allowed to spend large portions of this thread trying to pull the rug out from underneath my feet, despite most of the time having not a leg to stand on and a large proportion of the posts being borderline abusive (despite being wrong over and over again). I've answered questions civilly and to my knowledge never once said anything to warrant the tone of some of the comments.
For that reason, and the fact that I keep my obsession restricted to this thread (and even created a website as an outlet), I find the comparisons to ecosse at best inaccurate. And as it's not really based on the content of any of my posts in here (other than perhaps the sheer number of them), it seems to be purely that I'm passionate (and yes, admittedly, not a small amount mental) over the prospect of this thing. I can see how that would grate, but still, give it a rest people yeah!?
Anyway, sorry that my article offended, perhaps I'll revisit tonight to see if I can tone it down a bit (if I really do see something that needs it). I have to admit the opening line, which was actually supposed to be a compliment, does come accross a trifle flippant.
