2 Question


Recommended Posts



Reason I'm asking is because it's currently on sale (Steam).

From what I gather it gets mixed reviews but I'm curious as to what you guys think. 


and the second 



gaming news sites


Like the title says, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some gaming news sites. I read gamebanshee and rocks, paper, shotgun often, and kotaku has good writing once in a blue moon, but does anyone here use something else?


ps please dont say RPG codex, I checked it out because Infinitron does such a good job updating news here in the forums and he is very active there, but I just came from reading it for about an hour and found it to be a caustic cesspool of people who hate everything.

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Gaming news websites are almost all, almost always, crap. As time goes by I spend more of my spare time playing games and having fun - which gives me a good radar to know what game I would enjoy when I see it - and less time reading substandard trash written by hacks who don't know games or writing and work with terribly low pay and deadlines in a bribe-infested industry. 


If you insist that you still want the best of whatever's out there, Gamebanshee is decent, RPS used to be decent but now they're so concerned with writing in some pretentiously incoherent way that it seems to be a tossup as to whether they have anything rational to say about the game. Polygon seems to do big splash stories which can be a source to glean info. For RPGs German, Polish and Russian sites seem to be more levelheaded, but finding / translating can be a chore. 


The Codex can be great for news on indie and lesser known RPGs that most sites wouldn't know existed, e.g. it was one of the best places for info on Underrail. If you don't like their posting then just skim the news.

I finally found the first question: 


Will you please help Karak who is pretty much one of the best reviewers in the gaming industry?



I really enjoy his reviews.  And have for a long time, but I struggle with paying someone for information, including reviews about games.  I understand there's gotta be a way people make money, and that youtube is acting weird as of late, especially for Karak, but for some reason, I just can't think to cross the threshold to pay money for this kind of information.  

If you don't agree, that's totally understandable. I'm not quite sure how to express it in words other than it's just not something I would pay for.
