Usually when I hear devs talk about how great their communities are, it's in the context of what the communities do for the devs, how excited they are for every part of the games, how dedicated and devouted and loyal they are. It's not about what the communities do for each other, or about how they have really healthy priorities.

It's less "these are good people," and more "This dude branded himself with my IP" or "I could shoot someone on 5th Ave. and not lose a single fan."

The bookstore’s sci-fi shelf now has dozens of copies of Ready Player One and Ender’s Game—and little else.

I'm grateful for Sublime Text 3. It is an excellent tool.

Guys, don't call me on my shit: I'm being "inspirational."

I'm all for games having characters who are > 30 years of age, like in Homefront: The Revolution.
