Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

the Dao of "games journalism"

Hey! I want to write a thing about (topic). Would you be interested in it?

Of course! We always love submissions about things that you want to write about, especially from upstanding dickasses from SE++!

Is that a guarantee it will get published!

Nope! Like any publishing entity, we look for entries that fit a certain criteria. In this case: does the piece have a rhetorical throughline, an argument it follows to the end? Does it have critical analysis of its topic?

If you have both those things, chances are we'll end up running it! But we can't guarantee it, because who knows!

    Reading the end of the last thread was actually pretty cool

    I knew nothing about what anyone was talking about

    but there was so clearly knowledge there that could be discerned through close study of people's posts

    It was weirdly fascinating

    volbeat is at least competitively viable

    probably the worst pokemon to me are silcoon/cascoon and dustox/beautifly

    straight ripoffs of caterpie/metapod

    I am handicapped in dragon age on facebook because that account is literally only in existence to try and then later discard facebook games and try to win things and such

    so that facebook account has no friends

    which makes dragon age legends

    difficult

    Gen 1 isn't really that great; it just gets points for being the original. There's nothing special about the majority of gen 1 Pokemon other than "when I was a kid..."

    Also Gen 3 is great; f the haters.

    Hoenn nearly had the series jump the Sharpedo, but it seems Emerald managed to make things better.

    it's a shame because hoenn has some cool areas

    like the desert or the field covered in volcanic ash

    but when I think of it all I can think of is so

    much
