I very clearly explained what I could only see as a willing and deliberate misinterpretation of their words. They wanted to ensure the games on display were representative and inclusive. Of course all the games would be “wholesome” - that would be the point. Read more

Absolutely! Like I said a bunch, I had a tremendous time playing this. But, you know, it’s still a bit odd.

I’m most excited that you so accurately recreated 1980s BBC News presenter Moira Stewart.

You know, when you respond to a site doing something you like by yelling at it for the things you don’t like, you... well, you don’t come off well.

I typed it out, liked it a LOT, and then deleted it because I thought people would assume it’s a typo : (

There is no torture. You can choose to play in a more cruel way if you have the willpower. Or you can avoid any such behaviour.

The idea that a free mod should have to pay someone for not doing anything seems utterly obnoxious to me. Read more

But I say the exact opposite. I say it’s great when the artists who create these mods have the ability to get paid. And I think it’s wonderful when all artists get paid for their endeavours.

If you can rationally argue how selling for six months with induced FOMO spikes can unquestionably outsell a product’s lifetime sales, including those induced by price-cuts, then sure, I could see your point.
