I wish I could recommend this comment x 1,000. Enough with the shitty video player, Polygon. When better technology is out there (see Giant Bomb, or even YouTube), it’s becoming increasingly shameful that you’re still using the same player almost two years after launching.

Much like the media is persuaded not to report suicides in the news (as it may encourage others to commit suicide), articles describing how great something is that they stole is equally nefarious with regards to breaking the law. “Hey, this thing I illegally saw is awesome! I won’t mention where you can get it, but.. you know.” I personally had no idea this despecialized edition existed before this article. Now I do, and now I can easily Google the related torrent and steal it for myself. This article therefore has assuredly led many to go and steal as well. That, in my opinion, absolutely goes against what ethical journalistic behavior should be.

That probably explains why my previous comment, that simply pointed out (not criticized), that Vox Media has had a distinct uptick of pro-piracy articles lately was deleted (see The Verge’s pro-piracy articles on The Expendables 3 and Nintendo emulators for your phone.) I now have no qualms pointing out and criticizing the illegality and amorality of these actions, and if that means I have another comment deleted, it further goes to show the moral bankruptcy and further degradation of Vox Media properties, which is a shame.

Yeah James Gunn did a page one rewrite. None of the original script that Perlman wrote is what you see on screen, she’s just credited due to ancient WGA rules.

This is turning into the year of PS4 re-releases. Makes me glad I went with Xbox first. I want new games, new experiences with a new generation. Give me Titanfall. Sunset Overdrive. Quantum Break.

Opens article. Sees video playing in shitty Polygon player. Closes article and searches for higher quality video on YouTube.

I say this out of love, Polygon. Fix your shit, you’re losing viewers due to subpar video technology.

This exactly. I personally love rooting for the underdog, as they typically are the ones that end up working harder to “win” (whatever that means), or harder to satisfy customers. I’ve been very happy with the rate of new and meaningful monthly software updates. How long did it take for the PS3 to turn things around comparatively? Like 8 years? Remember how embarrassing it was that they couldn’t do something as simple as cross-game chat?
