Valve combat Steam review bombing with historical graphsValve combat Steam review bombing with historical graphs
Jenks Avatar
Reviews are one of the few tools unhappy customers have, and on their own are not very powerful. Only when you've made a great many people unhappy will "review bombing" become an issue, and rightfully so. In the case of Firewatch, the developer thought it was acceptable to abuse the DMCA law because he did not like a streamer, and that is absolutely not ok. Just like we can downvote the youtuber to show our dissatisfaction with his language, we can make negative reviews for the developer for their abuse of the law. "Review bombing" is only an issue for those who believe the masses do not deserve any power at all.

Er, I don't think you understand what that word means. His explanation for his actions are the opposite of sociopathy.

Is it hubris or just stupidity that makes people think they can stream a game like this live with no consequences?

This explains why I only played Destiny 1 for only a few hours, "loot pinatas" don't appeal to my "lizard brain."

This is probably a bit hasty in fairness. Yes, it crosses a qualitative line into microtransactions affecting gameplay, but unless the impact of these mods is massive - which I doubt, given their descriptions - I wouldn't call it 'pay-to-win'.

Jenks Avatar

I would. Saying that the impact has to be massive to be considered pay to win seems extremely arbitrary. If you gain a small advantage, you're paying to win. It has never meant paying for a 100% win chance.

Does Quake have a single-player future?Does Quake have a single-player future?
Jenks Avatar
It shouldn't be controversial. Quake was the first modern shooter, everything today still feels like Quake. Before Quake we cobbled together online play with things like Kali, Quakeworld changed everything. Mods like 3wave CTF and Team Fortress are still incredibly relevant. There's a very strong argument that Quake is the most influential PC game of all time, anyone who leaves it off their top 10 lists wasn't online gaming prior to 96.

Why call out "Christians and Muslims" and not Jews and Buddhists? Because lumping Christians with Islamic violence is absurd, it's something idiotic leftists love doing.

It's because both groups are the most popular of pulling this kind of bullshit then jews and buddhists people. Considering how both religions are wide spread in many nations and countries around the world, then buddism, hindu, jainist, and other beliefs out there, Christianity and Islams are the biggest elephant of the room of religions.


Which is why most things we hear some god awful shit is either both religions shouting out their intolerance for other beliefs instead of being respectful and letting it happen, and many turn to zealotry and fundamentalist behavior has been rampant on both Christianity and Islam.


The History of both religion just show just how ugly their believes are, and how hypocritical they could be, and this game although not teaching a political message, but like I said, it's showing us a religious message, and that's showing the ugly side of faith, beliefs, and the corruption of humanity. The ones we are all familar with thanks to modern and past actions of many groups... The Crusades, The Witch Trails, Salem Witch Trails, ISIS terrorist group, the KKK, and so many are plain examples to this day.


Now I guess you might get the big picture of why atheism is growing, we are sick and tired of religious zealotry and fundamentalist behavior from people too highly addicted to religion like a drug.

Grimoire dev thinks his own game is the “greatest roleplaying game of them all”Grimoire dev thinks his own game is the “greatest roleplaying game of them all”

It's pretty rare these days that a game comes along that looks genuinely challenging to me. I might have to pick this up.

I'm not sure why people are complaining about the price, is 40 dollars expensive? People pay 60 all the time for overpolished set piece games that last 6 hours all the time.Reply
Zoopy Avatar

Agreed. I'd much rather pay $40 for this than $60 + DLC cost for the next (mostly banal) Bethesda open world game.


I also think too many people don't understand the aim of the game either. Anyone who ISN'T willing to pay $40 for this game, isn't the target audience anyway. It's not a simple game and it's not an easy game. It's targeting an incredibly niche section of gamers. The average Joe is not going to have the patience to play it.

He's responsible for some of the greatest PC games of all time, maybe if you're in your 20's or younger you wouldn't know that. Godus and Fable 3 sucked but history has absolutely not taught us that "he's one of the worse of the worst game devs." That's asinine.

Darkedone02 Avatar

Fable 1 was good, but Fable 2 and 3 was lackluster, he made godus with that 21 can company after he left, but that didn't do so great, people say it's like a facebook game and facebook games are not that great, unless you like farmville or other related games.


however black and white 1 and 2 was alright but i had a hard time adapting to it, due to bugs and old features that I had a hard time getting into, like no resources regeneration for example, and how storywise can be bugged out.


however with his progress that he made is not really successful at all, and his name has always been tarnished with each project he left abandoned, like godus for example... people want that game to be succesful but it never did, it's now just as worst like towns...


i'm sorry if this may offend you but this is what all I know from this man, maybe in an alternative world he could be very successful and well beloved as well as we loved games made in unreal engine, however sadly that's not that case in this reality.
