Quoted from greenhornet:
mark, in many of your posts in this thread your extrapolated guess work abounds, and the conclusions you reach/speculate on are often dead wrong. that style is pretty worthless to readers. 600+ posts and your true contributions are minimal.
your kid in the candy store posts over this game since the start of this thread are overwhelming and mostly
your unrelenting support and perception of HP and Andy were incorrect
took a long time for you to finally change your tune
i am spreading facts, not venom. if anyone hurt the alien cause it was you by presenting unsubstantiated information and opinions. based on your comments, others might have been making some very poor decisions regarding this game and company.
and still you continue to speculate. this is the latest pot shot youve taken at me without having any idea who i am - but still you take a guess [or even worse, portend to make one] - in that MK6PIN style.
cant help it if you are a guess/speculate guy and im a logical/facts guy. perhaps i come across as i a "know it all" because i present facts, which are inherently known to be true and not up for debate.
Ok, wow, where to begin....
While i appreciate your desire to single-handedly lead a crusade against Alien "cheerleading" and (repeatedly) offer your opinion on the details of the game design, it's difficult to take you as anything but someone with an ax to grind. Over a third of your posts in your short time since joining pinside have been in this thread and virtually all of your posts are some sort of criticism of the subject game. You seem to post nearly 24/7 in this thread and are extremely quick to respond to any new comments. Your thumbs up/down ratio is pretty poor and you're offering very strong opinions about a game that few have played which seem to primarily be based on videos of prototype games.
While none of those things mean much on their own, taken together, those are the hallmarks of a troll, not someone who's truly seeking to "present facts." We've all seen it before with others that have come before you, both on pinside and other sites.
We're all (presumably) grown here. We don't need you to swoop in and save us with your "truth bombs" or whatever you consider them to be. If you want to offer your opinion anyway, that's fine. Say your peace but then leave. Or, at the very least, move on to a different topic. Given all that's happened with this game, some increased negativity in this thread is more than expected. I've expressed some myself. But, this is clearly not a situation where a lone naysayer is being hounded for offering a contrary opinion. Others have expressed criticism recently here and they haven't gotten the reception that you have. There's nothing wrong with criticisms of either the game or the company, but your presentation sucks. That, and you really are just clogging up this thread.
I don't know whether your trolling is intentional or whether you have an easily-fixated personality and actually think you're in the right, but maybe take a break for a bit. Haunt another thread for a few days. Read a book or something. I think everyone here would appreciate it.
