The man who dared call educational Minecraft a "gimmick"

Good follow up on what has just been a throw away comment before hand.Personally I'm not sure there needs to be a push to use pre exisiting games in the class room. It feels like there is a ceartain need for validation that often hangs around games. I'm not outright against it but as is said in the article, let some proper research be done. Don't just assume its a great idea because you like games as a leisure activity.

Did the awful Battlefield 1- pro- gamer-celebrities-on-drugs-mash-up teach EA nothing about presenting their games? This is worse becuas it doesn't have Snoop Dogg in it.

I've got a soft spot for this series. And Hulk:Ultimate destruction that preceded it. No one is every going to claim they are great games but as a giant open world destruction simulator they have to be beat. Plus in creating their own universe they could basically give the hero a set of stupid powers to play with. Conceptual nonsense but plenty of fun.

@MrTomFTW I habe no interest in MOBAs but I'll stay for the Audioslave chat. I like them. They were just different enough from Rage to be worth it but it became obvious they had no idea where to go with their music in the second and third albums.

Editor's blog: I am sexist

Unclebenny

4 years ago

Just a quick one as im on my phone at work.

Like you, tom, i dont believe most of these dismissive comments come from a deep seared misogony. However i don't really think they are all reactionary either. A lot of straight white men just dont get what its like to be persucuted in whatever way, to whatever degree for something you can't control. They therefore dont see it as a problem wworthy of attention.

While i dont agree with everything you wrote I think its very important that someone is out there writing these pieces and making the industry and community think.

Gitaroo Man retrospective

Unclebenny

Yes! One of my favourite games ever. I've got the CD soundtrack sat at home somewhere. I could never get past the third boss on the rock hard mose though, I decided that was obviously designed for people in the future when genetic manipulation was commonplace.

My personal favourite track was the crazy rock opera with the slightly worrying organ player.

Fun fact- Velociraptors were mis- named in the film. Actual Velociraptors were the size of medium sized dogs. What is in the film is Deinonychus or Utahraptors or something similar. Hopefully Deinonychus, my personal favourite dinosaur. Whats yours?

Call of Duty and Guitar Hero offline due to Hurricane Sandy

Unclebenny

6 years ago

Don't comment often but what the hey, stupidity levels are high enough to force my hand.

How people think its appropriate to wish for more hurricanes to knock down the servers for a game, I assume from their comments, they don't even play is baffling. Thats ignoring the much bigger issue that peoples lives and business's were ruined by this hurricane.

I shouldn't be surprised by stupidity on the internet but maybe I wish more of us expected more of ourselves and others.

If you don't like COD, fine. If you you do like it, fine. Why can't people enjoy something without being prejudiced against by self important morons with agendas against anything popular.
