At least from what I've seen in Game of Thrones, she certainly is a really good actress, especially for her age. Also, there aren't many young actors/actresses people know in general, and even fewer that are involved with action/genre material and considered to be actually really good at acting...it's basically… » 7/26/14 8:13pm Saturday 8:13pm

Yeah I definitely thought hero was far from how we were supposed to see Joel...it's played pretty dark for that. He (potentially) sacrifices humanity because he can't lose Ellie like his daughter, and while it's not entirely villainous I at least certainly never saw the creators as writing him as a "good guy", in the… » 7/25/14 2:54pm Friday 2:54pm

Is this just from IMDB/a quick Google or do you have any other sources? Because if you do, PLEASE TELL ME THERE'S BEEN PROGRESS ON THE METAL GEAR SOLID MOVIE. I love the Uncharted games, but that series is a) 20 years younger than Metal Gear and b) sorta already exists as Indiana Jones. » 7/23/14 4:11pm Wednesday 4:11pm

Ok, first of all, I don't even know where the hell to start with those almost laughably ridiculous first couple of sentences, as a (straight) black liberal myself, so I'll move on to the freedom of speech point. I don't see anything in the article saying Dungy/Smith/Bayless don't have the right to say those… » 7/22/14 6:10pm 7/22/14 6:10pm

Somehow nobody seems to be talking about how much of a distraction Josh Gordon or Greg Hardy will be to their teams Because drug abuse and beating women is just par for the course but god forbid a football player talks about religion or sexuality (neither in constant, heavy-handed manners), or actually has a bit of a… » 7/22/14 5:25pm 7/22/14 5:25pm

If "slow news day, huh" counts as criticism then those are pretty low standards. If there was some legitimately big (or even small) gaming news that wasn't getting covered because of this story, yeah, big problem. But the site has multiple other writers posting other stories, and this is directly related to gaming. … » 7/22/14 12:28pm 7/22/14 12:28pm

I fully agree that the lashing out is ridiculous and stupid. With that said, the fantasy roleplay/fantasy sports comparison doesn't really hold water (coming from someone who does both) for one key difference: while the "players" aren't actually involved in the game's actions in either case, fantasy sports are still… » 7/21/14 7:20pm 7/21/14 7:20pm

Well there aren't many other really recent parodies besides these ones you've heard so you should still be fine. He riffs on the Foo Fighters, Southern Culture on the Skids (who I'd never heard of but have apparently been around since the late 80s), college sports fight songs and Cat Stevens, alongside his usual… » 7/16/14 3:52pm 7/16/14 3:52pm
