    not great

    the writing is....not up to the kind of standards we have in 2017, or even 2001, if we're being honest

    a new Planescape game from them is neat but I wouldn't expect it to be anywhere near as good as Torment

    I picked this up because it looks like exactly the kind of thing I like and I'm not disappointed. Really enjoyable concept overall, with surprising depth possible in the deck building.

    Small devs making this kind of game is the only Early Access stuff I find it acceptable to use money on as well, so that works out.

    If you're talking about Hexxat, the voice acting... gets better.

    Most of the writing though was very "Buffy-speak" and jarringly out of place. I don't see them putting out an awesome planescape game.

    The bit in the BG1 expansion where they tried to be trans-inclusive was... I dunno, I'm not trans but what I saw of it seemed kinda hamfisted and awkwardly placed. Like, IIRC the woman you talk to straight-up deadnames herself?

    I bounced hard off BG1 which is a shame because I had a 95 roll I was playing

    The beginning of BG1 suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks because you're a fucking level 1 character and absolutely nothing is fun in level 1 D&D.

    All in all it's a lesser game than BG2, but still pretty alright if you stick with it.

    But since it seems he has been claiming to work for them for several years, it's entirely possible he did still get threats. Because internet.

    Because if literally anybody said that they received internet death threats from angry gamers I'd believe them? Much less someone who has led people to believe he works for one of the most hated companies.

    This isn't about him being virtuous. It's about parts of the internet being cesspits.

    Yeah shitbird "gamers" on the internet sending death threats is a continuous problem and I don't see a lot of good to be had in casting aspersions on it. Threats and harassment are situations where I trend very strongly toward giving benefit of the doubt to the victim because the consequences of incorrectly supporting the victim are much less than the consequences of incorrectly supporting the perpetrators.

    Kotaku is a lot better than it has historically been, and yeah, Schreier is a large reason why. It's still fun to dunk on Gawker MediaGizmodo Media Group-affiliated sites tho.

    Or he's using the most believable story he can to drum up even more attention for himself. These tweets shouldn't be hard to find. Have any of the places reporting this posted any of them?

    Kotaku gets a bad rep for how it used to be, and a lot of folks just keep that bias going and don't bother finding out that hey, it's improved.

    Appears the dude in question has now deleted any and all references to EA and getting threats as well as the threats themselves so looks like the whole thing was fake.

    One of the craziest things I saw recently was a comment on a kotaku article about Mario Odyssey pissed off about kotaku posting spoilers in a previous article.

    The previous article? About how Jump-Up Superstar lyrics are printed inside the case.

    I thought the zerg campaign was pretty good but the protoss campaing kind of wasn't, but then also my opinion might be colored by the fact that I think the terrans are the coolest, followed closely by the zerg, and the protoss are lame.

    I still have a lot of issues with the Gizmodo Media Group and there's certainly content on Kotaku I still don't like, but the fact that it employs folks like Jason Schrier and Heather Alexandra is pretty damn good and, quite frankly, you'd be hard-pressed to find any journalism sources, on or offline that don't have some issues one way or another.

    My only real beef with Kotaku at this point is that they still haven’t spun the kinda creepy anime stuff off to its own site so I don’t have to see it.

    They’re good reporters.
