Start fresh.

Some things just can't be fixed.

>>2779518
They need to stop saying shit like:

"[Character] is easily the best in the game" because they're wrong like 95% of the time, and it just reveals their newbness. Twats.
>>
They need to do less opinionated reviews
But really, who cares when there are roms just a few clicks away.

The whole website's a work of passion, but that's something of a problem. The editorials are a little too generous to the games they're covering and at their worst are full fanboy. They could easily trim some of the fat by just having an editor that moderates things before release - someone who can keep a game's appraisal in perspective; We've all seen how spergish some of those reviews can be, especially the SCHMUP ones.
>>
How about some members here start a blog?
I think a /vr/ blog sounds great...unless its filled with memes and reddit tier posting
>>
Nuking their forum.
>>
What is wrong with HG101? I like most of their articles and reviews. Although I must confess I don't know much about its writers.
>>
The massive Korea game catalog is fascinating
>>
Haha, I love it when these threads pop up. It's like clockwork.
>>
>>2779570

You...I like how you think, newfriend. :)

Burn it down and salt the earth. Kalata's shown to be beyond redemption at this point. It used to be cool back in the mid to late 00's, but nowadays wikis can and most often do provide better information without the editorial bullshit of the caliber of "the gaming experience you'll get out of it may leave you fascinated for the renaming of your life"
>>
Remove the bias.
>>
>>2779594
there isn't really much wrong with it. people here are never satisfied with anything and love to nitpick about dumb shit
>>
>>2780053
Derboo pls.

Get a decent editor. Their articles are all over the place quality wise. AT their best you have their Japanese computer article, as their worst you have their Valis and Dragon Quest articles which are two of the worst pieces of shit ever published.

well he's not wrong. He's not but..

>>2779518
Why do you keep making these threads? If you hate them so much then stop going there.
>>
>>2780096
Mother fucker can't write.
>>
>>2779576
Is that you, brother?

Also on topic, etch-a-sketcz's second volume is coming out soon, I'm looking forward to posting the PDF here as soon as that drops.

>>2779570
>>2779637
There's a lot of cool stuff here that would benefit from an "anchored down" site where people could come back to certain things by topic later, like the /jpc/ general.
>>
>>2779570
Yesyes, I need a blog for indepth discussion on Doom, Super Metroid, Mega Man and Mario. That'd be interesting.
>>
I actually contribute some articles to the site. And I'm kinda worried about the quality of the content that I am putting out. How can I improve the quality of my own articles?


The three of mine that were the most recently published.

It actually just came out. He put out a color version, but it's $60 instead of the standard $35.

I really want those last few interviews.
>>
>>2780430
Don't be Sam Derboo.
>>
>>2780705
can you elaborate? I mean I love Devil May Cry, but the only negative thing I've seen about Derboo is that he doesn't like that franchise for some reason.
>>
>they removed their book from the kickstarter controversies wikipedia page
>>
>>2780086
This. The amount of typos and misspellings tends to drive me nuts. Proof-read that shit.
>>
>>2780804
>in contact with Agness Kaku
>I think Sketch is sorta loopy and the more I talked with her, the more I want to side with her
>still buy the first and just bought the second book

I'm a wreck. Hey, the second book is already on sale on Amazon though.
>>
>>2779518
Why does a site need to be fixed when it can simply be ignored? Why do you care about something you clearly don't like? I don't get it.

I think the site has some interesting stuff myself, but I've certainly noticed a whole bunch of misinformation and inaccuracies on articles about games I know well.
>>
>>2780430
I enjoyed the Golly Ghost article, I've been telling my friends for years about the game because of the cool gimmick, your article will hopefully get it some more exposure.

As for a general suggestion for HG101 writers, just stay away from putting political and social views in video game-related articles - there's a place for that stuff, and it's called Polygon (or Gamasutra, take your pick).

>>2780804
It was probably a Sketcz fanboy. The request came from outside the US in any case.

>>2780981
It's ok. If you avoided everything produced by an evil piece of shit you'd die in some way or form.

I usually take a look there to see some obscure arcade or japanese computer shit, I never had problems with the site. Kusoge articles are pretty weak tho, I don't even remember the last one which made me laugh
