The Onion articles are usually well thought and witty pieces of satire. I see none of that in this article.
I don’t think three people constitute a comment section “filled with angry people.” Why are you getting so upset because we don’t find it funny? And I don’t think anyone made an angry comment. I suppose we are just confused about why other people think it is funny. Nonplussed=/=angry.
But is this funny? I thought the title to this article was a joke. Then I read it. Nope. The title exactly describes what the article was about. I love Owen’s sports game articles but I don’t know what to think of this. I guess you have to give him credit for finding a way to tie-in video games to a kickstarter for potato salad. I’m just not sure why anybody would want to.
Garbage movie franchise, garbage game. Not surprised.
So why don’t you delete the comments that praise the format of any article? It seems only the ones that criticize get deleted.
Happy 4th of July!
This game doesn’t sound fun to me. 4x games are not meant to played in bite-sized chunks. Civ Rev was already a pared down version of Civ. Paring down Civ Rev seems like you are cutting a lot of what makes civ games fun. I would be interested to see what the tech trees look like. How many techs can you reasonably develop and take advantage of if the game only lasts an hour?
“In early May 2014, U.S. District Judge Victoria A. Roberts granted (PDF link) the plaintiffs’ motion to dismiss, agreeing that the use of the word “is expressive speech and is protected under the First Amendment.”
I think you meant DEFENDANT’S motion to dismiss.
