Yes! I can tell this one will need to get its feet underneath it a bit, but it's got the tools.

Another clip that makes me laugh everytime:

I think that one is great because he's SO CERTAIN he's going to make it work.

I haven't checked in to my town in about 2 weeks, I'm kind of afraid to see what I'll find.

What the heck happened to you Teggy?

Just playing other stuff.
There's other stuff?

Although, to be fair, Mattrick has been head of that division since 2005 (7? Can't remember). Since that time, the 360 has been extremely successful. A lot of companies probably were vying for Mattrick, especially because he could probably be had on the cheap after the One fiasco.

I haven't gotten far enough where I can open my town yet, but I'm loving this one so far. Tom Nook is still a horrible creature.

We're seven in now, and it's just getting better and better. I was worried after the first two, but it's really building to something here. I'm very, very impressed.
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Based entirely on the 1st presentations of the PS4 / XBOne, which would you buy? on: May 26, 2013, 03:11:45 PM
I'll stick with my PC and Wii U. There are so few non-Nintendo one-platform-only releases that I want to play that I can't see dropping all that money on a system.
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is the first video game you ever purchased? on: May 25, 2013, 09:38:49 PM
Lords of the Realm 2.

Edit: Wait, no! Super Mario World.

Actually, I've run into several that I really want to keep playing. I'm actually changing the rules to "at least 20 minutes" because the good ones are so far between that I don't want to cut them short.

Besides, to be perfectly honest, from a strictly monetary standpoint, we're not contributing a ton. What we do in this corner of the site is a drop in the bucket compared to the million frontpage views.
103  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: We'd love your opinion on something on: April 20, 2013, 04:15:53 PM
Actually... tally up how many people post regularly in the Non-Gaming Forums. I would be shocked if that number was more than 300. We have a lot of lurkers, and they would remain unaffected.

Plus, people were just saying, "Tell me where to write a check and I'll do it."
104  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: We'd love your opinion on something on: April 20, 2013, 03:51:21 PM
The way I understand it, the problem isn't pageviews or keeping the forums active. It's the same problem as every other site on the internet: How to monetize the pageviews that they're already getting.

So here's my take: Gaming Trend could start a Founders' Club. Pay $2/month (or $20/yearly) to become a "Founder." If you're not a founder, you still are able to see the Non-Gaming forums, but aren't able to post in them. There would be contests open to Founders, like beta key contests and free games. It also removes ads from the forums.

This isn't unprecedented. ArsTechnica uses a Subscriber model, and it works pretty well. If you're not a subscriber, you can post in any technical forum, but you can't post in the hangout-type of forums.

So let's say that only 5% of forum members join, or about 150 members. That's $300/month extra that you can use towards the site. It's less than a cup of Starbucks coffee per month, and if a forum member really appreciates the forums, it's a price they'll more than likely be willing to pay.

So what do you do with that extra cash? You integrate the forums and front page so that users have one login across the site.

You also create a weekly web series every Monday called "The Week In Gaming." It's just a recap of what happened last week in gaming, maybe 3-5 minutes long max. Find a sponsor for it (preferably a company that isn't in gaming just in case you have to say something critical about their company).

Now take that money that the sponsor gives you and give that to people like David who've been instrumental in fixing the front page content (he totally deserves it) to help lock them down. You'll get better frontpage views, which will continue to push people to the site, and then they'll get directed to the forums, which will help them decide to be founders, and so on and so forth.

Would some people quit because of the paid area? Maybe. But those people who would decide not to visit GT just because they're not getting everything for free aren't the kind of people who will help the site in the long run, IMO.

Yeah, DLC Quest's humor is a lot more pointed. The gameplay isn't as good, but it's sharper. Evoland? It's like they just said, "Hey, aren't old games great?" and called it a day.

I'll bet if I played Archon Classic on PC (which I didn't know existed until just now!) I'd love it.

A dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

So by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filty animal. Is that true?
