Interesting read that.

I also noticed the ott wankiness surrounding Ooblets is now on Metro too.

There really are some incredibly toxic people around.

Ooblets devs deserve none of that hate whatsoever, but it was upsetting reading their PR announcement of Epic Store exclusivity thinking "oh no stop you're making this worse for yourselves". Good evidence for why having a professional handle PR can be very valuable, even if ideally you shouldn't need it.

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

Remember the good old days when you could just write into PC Zone, you'd call them banana splits, they'd put you in the mag and call you a banana split, and everyone would then just move on with their lives until the next month. GREAT BANTER.

I hear Pocky at the start and perhaps an N word but she definitely needs to annunciate.

I had to look up Pocky, it’s like Mikados snacks. Is that significant in the US?

She's wearing sexy night gear. Is this a thing now?

And that's definitely the n-word.

You're probably right. It'd be a non starter anyway as all the people I know who have had/died of cancer were nice people/children. God truly does move in mysterious ways.

Maybe an aggressive but non malignant nose cancer?

I am a nice person, but sometimes I despair of the world. I accept your chastisement.

Both in the USA and UK you get pocky in either Oriental style food shops or occasionally on the ethic/different cultures food isle in other shops. Pocky is great there's lots of different interesting flavours and its something lots of like otaku type nerds go looking to buy. I assume she's mentioning it to seem all nerdy and more accessible to geeky young guys.

I bet there aren't many gaming forums where people paraphrase Nietzsche.

I'm 42 and been a gamer since I was about 7 but I've never been interested at all in gamer culture. I don't give a gooseberry fool about E-Sports or streamers and I don't do social media. I'm sure I'm not alone in loving gaming as a hobby but just not being interested in anything more expanded than this place and gaming magazines.
