    And it's live! (the Friday Night Fights post where I talk about Streamtoid, that is). I'm pretty excited to see this come back, and I feel it is something that has been sorely missed / needed around these parts. I love giving community members their chance to shine.

    I'm actually working on a new Collectors Corner post for the FP as well, which will highlight several community members gaming collections. Once I get moved (in three weeks) I'll have a ton more time to spend helping out with anything Andy needs, and this is something him and I have already discussed.

    I'm with everyone here, I love Dtoid and I want to see it return to it's former glory (although I still believe it's a pretty swell place). Anything I can do to help, I'm up for.

    Maybe it is really just me because I care a lot about game related stuff made by fans, but it wondered me that Overclocked.Remix last album, Mario 64 - Portrait of a Plumber was not getting a fp article, earlier albums from them usually got one

    Sorry! No clue -- not my department. I'm sure it was just missed is all.

    In other news, Holmes continues to piss people off because he has an opinion. Perhaps this is becoming the big problem on Dtoid; nobody wants to accept someone else's opinion, and everyone is too afraid to piss somebody off.

    I kinda zoned out on Holmes after his Twitter tirade about how the entire Triple A industry needs to go bankrupt. There's having an opinion, and there's just being bitter for controversy's sake. If I want to hear that kind of empty opinion spouting, I'll stick around reading the first gaming blogs posted by 17 year olds.

    On the other hand it can be argued that "We don't use throws because they're cheap" is a pretty stupid opinion.
    That aside, I just don't read Holmes's articles. I don't like his style, I usually don't like his topics (which is sucking indie game devs dick for 99% of the time) and I just don't like what I caught from the guy, which means just steer clear of his articles.

    He got really defensive and snarky because some people disagreed with him and pointed out how stupid and uninformed his opinion is (which isn't a first).

    This comment sums it up perfectly

    I think that people were criticizing how you wrote a article blasting competitive melee players based on your own casual experiences and lacked the qualifications to be able to accurately dissect the pros and cons of the tripping factor in professional smash, but I can see how it's easier just to call them "impatient control freaks" or "irrational tourney players" instead.

    Its not his opinion, its his overall dismissive attitude. But he has a place here. He does great original content that is unique to the site and that's awesome. We need more of that.

    But just read the posts before this. Its obvious that he he just rubs some people the wrong way. No, he shouldn't be fired or told to stop because of that. The people that don't like him or his articles can just choose not to read them or not comment on them. No harm no foul.

    that whole thing attained alarming proportions so soon...impressive in a way.
    a lesson in escalation.

    Perhaps he's just more exposed since Jim isn't around to absorb the hate anymore.

  19. #4559
    valid hypothesis.
    But I am afraid the new Jim isn't that good in absorbing it.
    The old Jim practically welcomed the hate.

    Plus Jim generally did at least some research and had some points to make. He was childish about legitimate points, where as Holmes is just childish.

    Both deserve the flack they're getting and then some, but Holmes doesn't really seem to know how to handle it in a way that lets us laugh with him.
