    @olddadgamer: To be clear: When I said a *decade*, I was hedging a bit. I think you could build an upper-end PC for 1 or 2 times the amount of this new console that would play games at reasonable sett...

    @khanwashere: ...by which you mean middle-aged dudes and a smaller percentage of ladies with discretionary income.That's not the current console base, though. This is clearly an appeal to 'enthusiast'...

    @lbawmilitia: Same. I started with Intellivision as well. That's not really what I'm pointing out here. You likely prefer console for either totally arbitrary reasons (maybe you just *like* consoles),...

    Newflash, Phil: EVERYONE is looking for the 'best console experience.' What you're describing here -- this appeal to the bleeding edge seeker, or whatever other nebulous nonsense you can string toget...

    @bentleyj10: "all of that" -- what? The literal half page of text that took me all of three minutes to type?Anyway, maybe if you had read it, you would know that I acknowledged that fact. I'm fully aw...

    @wicked_laugh:I think the real issue is just 'niche' -- who does this console serve? It's intended to appeal to people who show up regularly in Gamespot threads debating these issues, right? MS keeps ...

    So...Consoles are LITERALLY adopting the telecom model of iteration now? You already see pseudo-contracts evolving here; it's a nascent space, but the new XBOX Live initiative, XBOX Games Pass, is a c...

    @angel9ramos7: Yes. Again, we must acknowledge that FREEDOM, at least as it is applied in the COTUS, does not imply that the ABILITY to do a thing without reprisal from the government does not also im...

    @dcoutten: It's a reasonable, yet flawed, understanding of the distinction between "inherent" and "conferred" rights that gives rise to this particular confusion. All of the rights enumerated in The C...

    @domiddian: I didn't mean to imply that you were suggesting it was the government who had intervened rather than British gymnastics. I see now how my response could be read as such. I only meant to hi...

    @domiddian: It had nothing to do with 'blasphemy' laws, as the UK isn't under Sharia. He wasn't banned, either. He was suspended for two months for mockery and insensitive commentary by British gymnas...

    @aj87: I did no such thing. I wasn't trying to minimize the problems, just illustrate the notion that a great deal of the criticism, just the sheer level of vitriol, is - in my opinion - unwarranted. ...

    @Pyrosa: haha...I didn't intend that to be such a block of text. I have a serious love/hate relationship with this game. Roughly 75% of the time that I've played, I've actually really enjoyed myself. ...

  • KerrinScott posted a message on the post Mass Effect: Andromeda Update 1.10 Out Now; Here Are The Patch Notes.

    @Xristophoros: To be clear, there ARE serious annoyances:1. Immersion is broken, pretty consistently, by the lack of narrative cohesion. The sheer amount of fetch quests, and how they are segregated i...
