Re: Making the site easier to read?

I still don’t understand how colors or gradients or lines arbitrarily spaced are supposed to make the text easier to read. As others have said the easiest and best solution is probably paragraphs, or if you’re not willing to compromise on that point then editing them down to a shorter length. I unde...

Re: You Have to Go Online

Your argument is like saying we should never protest the government because they're going to whatever they want anyway. Which is false. Nah, didn't say that. I'm saying you're complaining about patches, digital distribution in general, and consoles continuing to rely on the internet, which is not g...

Re: You Have to Go Online

I mean, if you want to complaint for another fifteen years about how the internet is changing gaming, go for it. Or just opt out. It’s not perfect but I’m fine with the industry now, and I’m sure it’ll be fine in twenty years.

Re: You Have to Go Online

I'm not saying that it can't be used constructively. What I'm saying is that it, on balance, makes things worse for players overall. It is the nature of systems to be exploited. I don't think there's anything to be done about it, nor was there ever. I'm biased in favor of online distribution becaus...

Re: You Have to Go Online

I'm all for being against bad business practices like releasing unfinished games, crappy DLC and the like, but I don't think having the ability to have the game patched at a later date is bad business. The problem is that the latter is used to legitimize the former. Give corporations an inch, and t...

Re: You Have to Go Online

This whole shutting everything down to “keep us safe” is just a govt. test to see how well they can manage us remotely. I'm assuming this is facetious? I really can't tell anymore. I really don't understand the aversion to consoles being designed to be used in conjunction with the internet. I under...

Re: Joker Movie Sucks

Wow, I'm a little surprised. I loved it. Maybe it was more because Joaquin Phoenix is incredible in it, but I thought it was a really different take on the Batman universe and the Joker as more of a mentally ill character. I understand that its framework was based on Scorsese's King of Comedy but I'...

Re: 2020/3/21: Saturn: Hi-Octane, Impact Racing

I had Hi-Octane for the Saturn growing up. Even then I wondered why I couldn't see more than a couple vehicle lengths ahead of me. I lump it in with games like Stellar-Fire for the Sega CD. Kinda blew my mind with early 3D graphics but both are best left in the past as memories.

Re: Favorite Resident Evil Games?

I just played the RE3 demo yesterday and was thoroughly frightened. Nemesis makes Mr. X feel like Mr. Rogers.
