IT IS TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY TODAY! photo



Oh, har de har, it's Talk Like A Pirate Day, the most hilarious day of the year. If you've never heard of it, it's a day where we all get to be frightfully amusing by saying the things a pirate would say! In honor of this national holiday, I have decided to get into the spirit of things by talking ... like a pirate!

Ahem ...

"It's not theft because the game is still there when you download it! Using that twist of logic, it's now morally acceptable for me to download the Humble Indie Bundle without paying for it! No, stop being ignorant, I wouldn't pirate games if it didn't have all that oppressive DRM in it! That's obviously why I download things like World of Goo and Serious Sam: Double D ... they've all got SecuROM!

"Hey, what's that? A developer's made a game that doesn't look exactly the way I want it to? Time to boycott it, and by 'boycott' I mean I'm going to download it illegally because I'm angry enough to take a stand, but too spineless to deprive myself of the experience. Not that it matters, I'm just looking for an excuse to justify my shitty behavior rather than just admit I want to play games without paying for them like a responsible adult person! Wheeeeeeee!"

What are your best pirate impersonations?

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more

Unsung Heroes: Bad Company

Way back in 2009, Charlie Brooker’s Gameswipe had this cutting observation about the po-faced nature of military shooters. During a particularly grim scene in Call of Duty: World at War, Brooker flambés several s...more

Escalator Pitch: Nina Freeman argues for perpetual Sailor Moon cosplay

Indie developers make some cool as heck games, but they're not always so great at selling them. We want to them work on their pitch game until they're at Bumgarner levels and we want to take advantage of the the horrible, ho...more
