  1. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    I actually find the normal enemies, almost across the board, more of a nuisance/challenge than bosses. Bosses behave in general, patterned ways but depending on the floor layout and the enemies present, they can be much, much more erratic. ESPECIALLY WITH SPIDERS and their damn semi-random movement patterns...
  2. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    Oh, don't be sad. In the end it's all for the Watch. For the Watch. For the Watch...
  3. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    The Haunt is a VERY tough boss and the only one I'd say that's actually harder for Azazel than any "standard" build.
  4. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    Oh I understand that intent is, ultimately, more important than actual word definitions (we can't ALL be as cool as the kid in Wet, Hot, American Summer who says the line "Douches are hygienic, I take that as a compliment" after all), it's just, to me, emblematic of how hilariously slipshod this whole operation is. As I said further up: when we look back in ten years, they may very well be the catalyst for a lot of positive change entirely in spite of themselves and their abhorrent actions.
  5. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    It is one of my absolute favorite things that they're using as a pejorative something that sounds objectively AWESOME. My only fear is that it works like how "liberal" worked in American politics.
  6. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    I've actually been thinking about this too. GG has done more in the last 6 months to expose the misogyny and inequality in the Video game, tech and science fields/industries than all the op-ed pieces of the last decade. The GRANDEST irony of this movement will likely be that they will unintentionally change the world for the better because the internet loves nothing more than to forget passion causes within days, but since they're SO DEDICATED to the constant campaigns of harassment and threats, it doesn't LET the internet forget. Someone trying to advance the cause of equality couldn't have planned it better...I wouldn't be surprised if THAT'S their next move: try to blame all this on the "SJWs" by claiming GG started as a false flag operation to try and bring attention to inequality in video games... No need to be baffled: these people are at war with indie games that feature characters other than Whitey McLanternjaw. They never go after "big" publishers because those are the publishers who make the games they love (and I love! I love me some Arkham games, and I can't WAIT for the new MKX, partially because it looks like I won't have to explain to my fiancee why all the female characters are dressed like Renn Faire prostitutes) and they seem to operate under the misguided notion that the more indie games come out, the fewer AAA games will come out. As though there were some arbitrary limit...
  7. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    Without items I'm not actually sure you're ever "guaranteed" a Devil (or Angel) room, but I do know that taking no Red damage definitely increases the chances of one spawning by a TON.
  8. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    I mean did you SEE the comments in that blog quoted around page 132? The one Klepek linked to that had some great, objective facts about why "the movement" never gained the traction they like to pretend it did? MOST of the top comments (which I think are chronological, not vote based) were about how this was "yet another article reporting on incidents with no citations" (there were plenty of citations) and once again HILARIOUSLY misusing Occam's Razor ("Which is more likely? That thousands of people are leading a campaign of misinformation and harassment or that these bitches are just doing it for attention? CHECK. MATE.") I mean it'd be hilarious if it weren't so infuriating...
  9. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    But you unlocked Samson, right? Cause I unlocked him with Azazel actually by accident! I both love and hate playing as him since he plays SOOO different, but SOOO many pickups you get don't do crap-all for him (every time I get a range booster, it grinds my teeth down just a little more).
  10. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    I mean these are guys who are drinking the Bill Maher kool-aid and taking it to UNHEARD of levels. They seem to genuinely think that "Beautiful, ephemeral, intelligent woman married to a dumb fatass" is complimentary and pandering TO THE WOMAN. That right there could have entire classes taught about misunderstanding how power dynamics in society work. (Or I'm misunderstanding your post, I kinda feel like it could go either way...but I feel like the point still stands)
  11. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    This is all fantastic to learn/know! The way I made my way through the initial slog wasn't to go for a full-on victory, but to go for character unlocks. Try and get those "No heart pickups/no damage for the first two floors" unlocks and those will, at the very least, unlock more different ways to play.
  12. An email I sent to Giantbomb

    That we can surely agree on!
  13. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    He has put out so many incredible comics about this topic...
  14. An email I sent to Giantbomb

    I get that and I agree 100%, but that still leads into: maybe they did. Maybe they reached out to some people and got turned down. Maybe they either already had a job they liked, or weren't interested in relocating for a job. I mean GB, and not just them but damn near every job in the country, tend to hire people they know first or go for a "safe" hire. Though ultimately if they do wind up hiring to replace Klepek, I truly do hope they get someone with a new perspective.
  15. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    This isn't that unlikely. I mean Marvel got chomped up by Disney and began to/just as they started making movies that were basically genre films featuring superheroes. Like GotG is a straight-up sci-fi movie, Winter Soldier is an action-thriller, both Thor movies are more fantasy than superhero. This is why I can't understand people who think the Marvel bubble MUST INEVITABLY BURST CATASTROPHICALLY!! It's also why I feel Marvel's movies are doing better and holding up better than DC's, but that's another story for another time. The point is: Disney as a holding company is clearly okay with their IPs being used to explore unlikely, different routes and I think they'd be daaaamn smart to do that with Star Wars. Honestly? If they announced tomorrow they were making a Bounty Hunter movie, I'd be looking forward to that far, FAR more than Episode VII.
