As I've grown older, I wanna try to be careful about the products I use and where the money for that goes. It's not gonna be perfect, but I really do wanna try to make sure my cash money doesn't go to scumbags. This is why I'm not gonna get Borderlands 3.


I am so god damn hyped for SNES. Give me a legal avenue to get and play these games. I will buy Super Metroid so many damn times.


If you like FFXIV and especially the story of the new expansion Shadowbringers, they did a panel detailing the narrative and some visual stuffs at a PAX West panel. It has heavy spoilers so be aware of that!


Something I was wondering after watching end game and playing through the very excellent Spider-Man game again this weekend. Do y'all think there should be a kind of Marvel Game Universe?


This is gambling and it needs to be regulated just like gambling should be.


Whew finally finished up Shadowbringers. It's wild how it feels like a complete game from beginning to end. To think that this is the start of the expansion. Can't wait to see what the FFXIV team cooks up next.


Kind of regret buying Super Mario Maker 2. Not because it's bad, but more that it's catching dust while I fiddle with Shadowbringers. It's so good.


As someone that played FFXIV for almost 6 years now, and without spoiling much, Shadowbringers has the strongest pair of opening quests in the whole game. It is absolutely bonkers and so good. 5.0 spoilers inside.


You know critics sometimes get it wrong. Like take Godzilla. Solid popcorn movie. Sometimes they get it right. Like MIB: International. Oh boy what a dumpster this was.


Aside from subscription, would you say there's a difference between a MMO and a live service game?


Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight on this planet.


Can I be mean? I'm gonna vent a little and be mean. If you look at a game like Cyberpunk 2077 and think that you'd love this, but would get annoyed by social justice commentary. Respectfully, fuck off. It's like wanting Harry Potter, but without the magic


E3 Reaction: Holy shit it's video games.


Don't sleep on the Kinda Funny showcase. They're showing off some neato indie games. Like this qt pie of a game.


"Indie development is 'stagnant' says Braid creator, Jonathan Blow" How true is this for folks? Because last I've checked indie games are amazing and the absolute amount of quality titles out there is amazing.


Glad I ignored the critic score. Godzilla was awesome.


I want EGS to be a good storefront. I like the idea of more competition on the PC market. I would be using it more often if they could guarantee their security was more secure. I think that one day it will be, but that day is not today. Link inside.


Hot take: The practice of crunch should be illegal. It's not healthy for anyone to work 12 hours days, 7 days a week, for 6 months or more. Ultimately, it's ineffectual. Look at Anthem as an example. It needs to go away. Someone should step in to do that.


Unpopular opinion: I would love if Sega did a remake of Sonic '06. Something polished, all the fixes, and the content that was cut. I'd check that out.


Not only is Ubisoft donating towards the Notre Dame restoration effort, they're giving out free copies of AC:Unity. Link inside.


Game developers need a union. Jason Schreier, who you might know from Kotaku, wrote a neat article on this. I'll post a link inside.


I think if there was a game that'd make me want to buy it day 1 from the Epic Game Store, it'd probably be Borderlands 3.


This is the most elaborate attempt at a confession to what's on those flash drives I have ever seen.
