Numerous other words could have been used. At best, 'bitchiest' is lazy, and has considerable capacity to offend.

Just requires a little thought.

So you're happy to play a game seemingly made by, and aimed at twats, as long as it's got sick combos.

What prejudices would you not be happy to overlook in a fighting game? Just out of curiousity.

Psychonauts, Stacking, and Costume Quest to see retail release

@Timmy_Toldrum I had a torrid time getting a controller to work/reassigning keyboard controls. Plus a few issues with playing in windowed mode. (if you can get used to the controls you'll be fine)

This was last year, seemed lots of people had similar problems


I am a bit stupid though, so willing to accept it was that.

@johnathansia agreed that's a slightly less stringent definition. still doesn't apply to something that has simply been away a while, so it doesn't apply here. I'm a big fan of Martin's, it's just a) a shit cliche reserved only for terrible football journos to use b) wrongly used

prodigal means wasteful or extravagant, not a returned wanderer; the confusion arises from the biblical parable of the prodigal son. A very common mistake

I'm not saying it's a particularly heinous example, but isn't this game simply exploitative kids trash, with on-disc DLC?

Dark review

ZachForrest

5 years ago

I disagree with the assertion AI in stealth games must be realistic. It seems to me that a certain predictability is more important. The player should know broadly what his actions will cause the AI to do.

- Chuck some food at hungry guards in MGS3 - they eat the food
- Shoot out a light in splinter cell - guards will be wary, and scout around a bit

- Guards find a dead body in Dishonoured and the alarm will be raisd, guards conduct extensive search

@Bobrek Also you've equated health and safety legislation (speeding) with political correctness (the idea of a broadly inclusive language/set of norms).

So you've amply demonstrated you've misunderstood what PC is.

The Last of Us isn't the solution to sexism in games, but it's a start

ZachForrest

5 years ago

The author is saying that Naughty Dog have portrayed a woman in a realistic way, which is pretty rare, and pretty good.

It's an interesting and worthwhile discussion, if it pisses you off, put your head in the sand like you're wont to do anyway.

No one's chopping off your dicks, get a grip.
