Not even the moderates, when pressed, sound all that moderate. 'We just want ethics in Games Journalism' sounds okay on the face of it, if a little preoccupied with something meaningless in the first place. Dig a little deeper and it's cries of nepotism and collusion, the former of which is maybe an issue although… » 10/30/14 6:57pm 38 minutes ago

Warhammer: Eternal Crusade almost tried Crowdfunding, Games Workshop…

Anyone remember Eternal Crusade, the once-massively multiplayer online role playing gameturned... free to play something? It still remains in development, with little more than alpha footage to show. They recently opened up founder's program, but that wasn't apparently their first decision. According to This article… » 10/29/14 11:04pm Yesterday 11:04pm

My guess: Shield ends up reinstated (bound to happen eventually) because various governments decide that all this superheroic nonsense is getting WAY out of control, and they start cracking down on it. Providing a sort of wider context to the conflict that will drive Civil War. » 10/29/14 9:15pm Yesterday 9:15pm

The best part about the spinning Lightsaber is the pair of giant 'stab here please' holes. Also, somebody with more actual practical weapon experience might be able to answer this, but wouldn't a weapon like that be kind of insanely more dangerous than a double-side-lightsaber? I mean, that'd be dangerous too,… » 10/28/14 2:55pm Tuesday 2:55pm

My weird theory:

Infinity War part 1 will be Thanos beating the holy shit out of our current Avengers team, so badly that they manage a pyrrhic victory at best, and most likely just manage to stave off complete disaster. As a result, the current team of Avengers will be largely broken (and oh look their contracts are… » 10/28/14 5:16pm Tuesday 5:16pm

The thing is they don't care about the eyeballs that have downloaded it, or the people who have DVR'd it (well, at least they mostly don't care in the latter case. They give zero shits about the first bit though), and they don't know how to properly capitalize on those models. Ergo, the only ones they care about are… » 10/25/14 6:47pm Saturday 6:47pm

In my experience, horror RPGs are more fun because of the way they subvert the most common RPG tropes and tactics (for example, in most RPGs, making spot checks and deep investigation is always the right answer. In Call of Cthulu that succeeding a spot check or investigation can actually HURT you. The classic 'You see… » 10/24/14 5:47pm Friday 5:47pm

That's also the name of a prominent youtuber, which was why he chose it. (And believe me, trying to get someone to jump the gun and accuse said youtuber falsely is the kind of stupid shit some GGers try). Unless you're the same guy, which... I doubt, because he's pretty pro-GG.

Also the doxxing isn't fake. It… » 10/23/14 2:10pm 10/23/14 2:10pm

Simple answer: He doesn't.

Because that's not Ultron. Ultron's not that robot. He's a network. We see multiple Ultron drones in later shot—and I bet they're all Ultron. My completely wild speculation is that he's a controlling AI built by Stark at the behest of somebody (maybe Fury on the down low?) that had something… » 10/23/14 4:36am 10/23/14 4:36am

Doubly so because of the dynamic between the brother's, which actually went back and explained, without telling, that Picard's family life was defined by trauma. Hell, from scene 1 we're expected to just be like 'Wow, Picard's brother is a jerk'—only to realize that we're not necessarily seeing just a monster, but a… » 10/20/14 3:18pm 10/20/14 3:18pm

Eh, the other way you could look at it is instead of presenting it as 'Oh my god they might KILL COBBLEPOT!" it's like 'This is the kind of treatment Cobblepot endured in his rise to infamy, where he learned that the only way to get ahead was to be more vicious then your opponents—and also if you want to take somebody… » 10/20/14 12:08pm 10/20/14 12:08pm

The thing is, it's not exactly like Iron Man 3 followed the plot of Extremis even remotely closely, and I'm pretty damn sure Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to play out anything like the Age of Ultron arc, so... why is the assumption that Civil War will be all THAT related to the (absolutely horrible) arc in the… » 10/14/14 3:40pm 10/14/14 3:40pm

SDCC's a prime example of that. Forget cosplayers: You think anyone is going to walk by your art booth if they have to spend most of their time in line for the panel with the HUGEEEEEE REVEAL? (That we will tease without giving you an idea of whether or not you'd want to attend it in the first place)—and the remaining… » 9/25/14 3:21pm 9/25/14 3:21pm
