    related to nothing, why the fuck do you guys do the star system now? seems like such a needless change, i mean the scale is still a 10 point scale what's the point.

    You know how a lot of people get up in arms about 7/10 scores, even though 7 shouldn't be considered "low?" A star system seems to somewhat remedy that, at least psychologically. If you see three and a half stars (which does equate to a 7/10), you see that as average, which is really what it should mean.

    Thanks.

    either i'm missing something here, or you guys are seriously insulting the intelligence of your readers by assuming that if you use a 10 point star scale instead of a 10 point number scale that nobody will call you out over a review score in stars as opposed to a star score in numbers. and i mean when i look at a review score in stars i immediately convert it to a number out of 10 anyways, and i'm sure i'm not the only one who does that. do you just assume your readers aren't capable of multiplying the number of stars by 2 to get a score out of 10? If that's seriously your reason for using a 10 point star scale than that's pretty damn condescending.

    Visually, stars convey the 6-8 range better than the 6-8 range do. A 6 or a 7 looks "bad" whereas, at a glance, a 3/5 looks better. If you would rather it be out of 10 that's fine, do the math, it shouldn't take but a moment.
  • TaserLime - May 5, 2013 6:52 p.m.

    for games that get 6-8 you should use the stars and then for games that get any other score you should just use the actual numbers. that would be great. also, let me reiterate, when i see the score in stars i instinctually do the math and convert it to the number score.

    Your second grade teacher must be extremely proud.
  • TaserLime - May 5, 2013 9:06 p.m.

    why? because i made the point in my comment then you went and replied making the same point as if you didn't even read my previous post? the jerk store called and they're all out of you.

    I shall name it "fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck: The Game." Also sorry about profile pic. My brother set it up and he is kind of a dick.

    I was thinking of a game where you play as, like, a robot policeman or something, and had to go around and defeat a bunch of criminal robots(like 8 or so), and each time you beat one, you took their weapon from them, and could use it against the others. Maybe after you beat them all, you have to track down the evil gangster who built the robots and arrest him. You should probably have a robot dog too. Police love dogs.

    My human colleague, Hollander Cooper, should recuse himself from covering the Ouya since his recent admission of funding the console's creation might be construed by some as a conflict of interest

    'cept that he says its not that great.

    Henry doesn't know shit. 9/11 was an inside job, and the conspiracy stretches all the way to San Francisco. If you remember, the San Francisco Fire Department was conspicuously absent at the World Trade Center on 9/11. Only FDNY trucks responded. That's because Dick Cheney gave them a stand down order on behalf of the Illuminati, the Bilderbergs, and the cast of Ally McBeal

    ^^Made me giggle

    My game would be called "why are we here?" and it would star a bunch of random people living life in a endless cycle and you play a women in the cycle who figures out why they are there and it turns out everyone has been dead the whole time.
  • supergiraffe - May 3, 2013 4:57 p.m.

    You play a teddy bear trying to stop monsters under a child's bed. The trick being, you have to talk them out of attacking the child. You're given the day time to investigate the monster in books around the house, or horror movies on TV, then you use this information to convince the monster to go away, either through intimidation or logical arguments.

    As inadvertantly suggested by Tom, my title is "I Don't Even Wanna Go." It would be like El Shaddai, you're a dead soul fighting to keep from going to Heaven.

    I like how attempts were made to bring things back on topic which then also became just as fruitless, haha. Also the segment about the vitality sensor is SO TRUE. Hey. When you were talking about GRs videos and RadarPlays and junk I just realised something. The hell happened to the New Releases Super Show!? Like, seriously.
  • BladedFalcon - May 3, 2013 4:21 p.m.

    I'm guessing it didn't get nearly enough views to justify it's existence ):
  • GR HollanderCooper - May 4, 2013 1:04 a.m.

    Taking a break during the slow time of the year. There are weeks where, like, nothing comes out.
  • JarkayColt - May 5, 2013 4 a.m.

    Seems sensible. So what you mean to say is that it's strictly a November thing? XD (Yes, slight exaggeration.) I do admit RadarPlays New Releases fills the gap in a most self-explanatory way though.
