      I also find it ironic that you warn & ban people  for speaking politics when you clearly start threads and publish articles that are based on just that ! Just off the top of my head here is a few of your more recent
    I'm going to take umbrage at this comment: Neither Bill nor I are the forum moderators, nor do we hand out bans or warnings. That comes from an independent group of volunteers under the direction of MikeB. Trust me when I tell you that they are much more impartial than I would be in their shoes. 

    If you got a warning, rather than posting snarkily about it here, take it up with @MikeB who is in charge of this whole shootin' match on the forums.
    I don't think they were asking about how to get "unbanned" or anything of that nature. What the statement is saying is why warn someone about their personal politics when you are clearly displaying your own? Why warn someone to stay away from discussing politics at all when the article YOU present is centered around politics? Now I know you may get snippy with me & I'm not trying to be rude but these are legitimate questions & statements
    Just want to clarify for future reference: editorial and community are not the same dept. Bill runs editorial and I run community. If we publish an editorial (or news piece) that is political in nature, we tend to lock the comments. I don't decide what goes up in terms of news/articles, my team and I just decide the fate of the comment threads attached to them.

    That said, I don't necessarily view the subject matter of this piece as inherently political, but the potential for it to become a political discussion wasn't lost on me. However, since the discussion was for the most part pretty reasonable, I decided to see if that would hold.

    How come I didn't see Star Citizen here?



    Because I have almost zero interest in Star Citizen. Feel free to post your own list, though!

    Because that's what I wanted. Not another Ultimate Alliance or even a relaunched Marvel Heroes. No, I clearly wanted two shit mobile games, one of which is a fucking CCG. Great job.



    The two aren't mutually exclusive. There's a game called Avengers Project in the works right now. And we have Spider-Man on PS4 this year.

    Mobile game.

    Unfortunately, I found the game to be more of a "sleeper" than any of the characters. Just couldn't make myself log in every day.


    I'll be honest, If this was any other IP other than Marvel im not sure id be playing. We really need more Marvel games, MMO? Yes please



    Keep an eye out for Avengers Project at E3. I'm hoping it shows and that it looks good.

    I am still pissed they took away my favorite companion and still haven't returned her after more than 2 years! Especially after all the effort put into it (upgrades, affection lvl, etc).

    I am ok if it was just temporary, but this temporary removal has now turned into a permanent removal and that's just not ok.



    You can force retrieve any of the old companions through an in-game terminal.
