Seriously, does this sound like a comprehensible story? I mean, you can make anything sound insane if you say it like that . :p "Ancient beacon is misheard by modern-day people, plot ensues when we finally get the correct message" is basically what happened in Mass Effect 1, and people do...

The Federation? Reactionary doofuses. Doofi? This would depend on whether 'doofus' is a second declension masculine noun or not. [snip for brevity] Anyone pointing out that 'doofus' isn't attested in North American English until the 1960s, and I am therefore simply making things up, will of course ...

I have bought games day one, games I was dead set on getting and liked the look of immediately. Ghost of Tsushima, Horizon Zero Dawn, Xcom 2 and many more. Other games though which I am more cautious about, for whatever reason,I like to look more into at release and research a bit more before I buy...

First off, thank you for engaging in the argument. Secondly, there are so many people out there that do exactly those things. I've seen so many people just blindly accept another's word.

What do you know really , though? Dude and [arbitrary number] say game is buggy. How buggy is it, tho? Is it distinctly problematic? Is it trivial balance issues? If you know the bugs, can you play around them? Avoid them entirely? People whine so damn much about "issues" that it's hard t...

I'm not gonna quote La Paz de Los Ricos' entire post, but basically +1. It's like the plot lines in Picard were specifically set up to shit on every happy ending Star Trek previously set up. Picard? Isolated and broken. Data? Legacy tarnished, fellow AI were servants and then outlawed entirely. Rike...

Some kind of minimum post threshold for making reports might solve that specific issue while opening up a fairly massive can of worms :P Not gonna happen. Never gonna happen.

I suppose the key question then is, what do you want them to do about it? Your summary of the salient issues is good, but how do we fix it?

If they're not putting a lot of work into stellar cartography for example, they're not gonna be as far along as the feds are. They might be ahead on military technology, but behind on astronomy and stellar anatomy. we wouldn't even know what to look for "Hey Fred, does the Sun look weird to yo...
