REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

DAILY MANIFESTO

I Am the Most Consistent Game Journalist in the World

He can see everything coming and yet he surprises himself.



At one point in time, I ran a top-50k website about RPGs. I still do updates there, uh, sometimes, but free time ain't in the supply it once was. Sucks, cause it'll always have a place in my heart. Anyway, I noticed assclown websites were posting Famitsu's Most Wanted on N4G and raking in easy hits. Posting Famitsu's relatively unchanging most wanted poll week after week is an example of the shitty phoned-in content so many sites thrive on. Shit, when we get into the list's mid-to-late 20's, we're getting into double digit votes — oooooh, the implications!

Since I can usually get to Famitsu before other writers can (and the Most Wanted list isn't among the Famitsu content that gets leaked before shelf date, because it indicates nothing), I decided to jack this scheme up — and do it on an ad-free website where I have absolutely nothing to gain. I know, so badass. Internet freedom fighter, that's me.

This countdown is a waste of time, but people lap it up for whatever reason. I've noticed that people love to argue about sales, and this has spread to most wanted polls as well.

So I posted the damn list myself on RPGLand.

In so doing, I had to pick categories for the update. "Hmmmm..."
I tagged it with News, Famitsu and, wait, no. I asked myself "Do I have a tag for Crap?" Scrolling up, I noticed that I did at some point make a category for Crap.



I tagged this Famitsu's Most Wanted Poll accordingly.

Later, laughing at my own jokes as I tend to do, my curiosity got the better of me. Hey, I wondered, what else have I put in the Crap category? I went into the update and clicked it. There is one, singular other update in this category, from April of 2011. Behold the entirety of tag's page:



Yep, the only other update in the Crap category is another Famitsu's Most Wanted list, and I still have a disdainful intro. The only thing that changed is that I was sliiiightly less jaded. I laughed. Laughed and laughed. Over three years ago, I posted such a list, felt the same way, and did the exact same thing. People should change with time, but I'm glad to see that my tolerance level for bullshit has remained right on the fucking floor this whole time. You're welcome, world.

Stay consistent, my friends.
