Topic: Kongregate / Is everyone happy with the Friday challenge?

I don’t like what they’re doing with the challenges. Whatever happened to creating cards for Kongai? My friends and I used to debate about which game what getting the next card, but now nobody I know gives a shit due to the fact that it’s all for the dumb MMOs.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / Far too many pay-to-win games

I’ve noticed that on Kongregate there seems to be an influx of pay-to-win games: Heroes of Gaia, Time World, Dream World, and countless others, including every Edgebee game. What makes it worse is that they all follow the exact same format. Anybody else have any thoughts on the subject?

Topic: General Gaming / what do you think is the worst game developer company?

Anybody who rates a game solely on graphics needs a swift kick in the face.
Minecraft and Pong have horrible graphics, but great gameplay.
All over 9000 Call of Duty games have great graphics, but horrible gameplay.

Also, making games similar again and again means that you’ve got a good formula on your hands (unless the formula is shoot-kill-teabag-die-call cheats-shoot-kill-teabag-die-call cheats….)

And worst developer is either EA (YOU RUINED SPORE!!!) or whoever created Roblox. I tried that game once, and it is HORRIBLE.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: Activity feeds for everyone!

Why is Kongregate trying to be like Twitter? Twitter isn’t a game site!

I liked how the “Recently Played” games were easily accessible. Now, they’re hidden behind a few clicks.

Why, Kongregate, WHY?!?!

It’s a city.
In North America.
Specifically, Atlantic Canada.

this includes most of quebec and the islandic parts of Canada. We need more, like close GPS co-ords.

New Brunswick.

No, no and no.

It’s a pretty obscure city, though.

Topic: Forum Games / Guess the City game

I found this game on the forums of NationStates, a country-simulation type-thing, and I’d like to introduce it to Kongregate.

Basically, I show you a picture of a city, and you try and guess what it is. I’ll give hints here and there, but not too many. 3 guesses per post.

If you answer it correctly, then you post a picture of a city and everyone guesses, and so on.

Here’s my pic:

Topic: Kongregate / New Profile rolling out to everybody

This is one of the absolute worst changes to the internet I have ever seen. Let’s do a step-by-step analysis.

Number chart of shit nobody cares about: Wow, numbers! 15 of this, and 17 of that. NOBODY CARES HOW MANY FAVOURITE GAMES YOU HAVE. And why is the most prominent thing on the entire page the level number? I want the focus to be the “about me”, not the number 32. Also, why is the bottom part of my avatar cut off on the big photo?

About me: The only thing anyone cared about. Now it’s cached away.

Activity feed: A timeline of everything I’ve done on Kongregate. Hurray. I don’t really care about the exact minute and day something trivial happened, especially when it’s in a different time zone. I really liked having the shoutbox, badge count and friend/fan bar separate, not in one giant clusterfuck.

Connections: Why that word? Why not something casual? And why is it in a tab function?

Badges: The only remotely good thing in this shit-stain of a page is the ability to see the earned badges by difficulty. But why, pray tell, does it default to impossible?

Favourite/Recently played: Why is it labelled “Favourites” when it also has the Recently played games?

Awards: NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE TICKETS AND SHIT. THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE CARDS.

Let me write a haiku about the new design:

What the fuck is this
This new design is true shit
Please change it back now!

Topic: Kongregate / MMOs Are Ruining Kongregate...

I love thinking when playing games. That’s why I like Pokemon so much, you have to take type matchups and everything into account. I don’t like fast-paced action, and I really hate teamwork (especially with people I don’t know), which is why I hate MMOs.

Topic: Kongregate / MMOs Are Ruining Kongregate...

Lol, I stopped reading at Tyrant sucks. That game is genius and is practically what a good MMO should strive to be.

Really? You stop reading my argument after I state a different opinion on a game than yours?

That’s really fair.

Topic: Kongregate / MMOs Are Ruining Kongregate...

I’m just gonna put my two cents in here….

MMOs (specifically PBBGs) are ruining Kongregate. My main beefs are:

1) “New” PBBGs are usually basically a “texture pack”, if you will, for a previous game. Clash of the Dragons is a ripoff of Heroes of Gaia (which sucked too), and many games ripped off Tyrant (not the worst game ever, but it sucks)

2) If I spend one yoctosecond (Google it) on a game, I get bombarded with undeleteable PMs for updates for that game. Why? I know you can block it, but come on!

3) My biggest one: Instead of making cards for Kongregate’s homegrown CCG, they now offer rewards for PBBGs instead, sometimes by playing other PBBGs!

4) It reminds me of bribery: you can’t get ahead without paying.

5) If you trace this all back far enough, it’s all a ripoff of Facebook games like Farmville and Mafia Wars.

What defines inappropriate for children? Shouldn’t they know what a harsh reality in which kids can’t learn about a harsh reality is?


whta about a few days ago when cocoa posted a bunch of porn? I honestly think thats a little to mature for someone thats not even 13 yet.


What I mean is, don’t censor things.


That’s kinda over-the-top.


Why can’t you understand that your minds can’t handle the responsibility of knowing things you can’t comprehend yet.

Yeah, stop bashing kids and do something productive, please.

You make your words bigger by saying it like this:

I’d sing Free Falling by Tom Petty, and the rest would follow suit.

Mental age is very different from physical age, and if kids want to view something, they should be able to.

Doesn’t mean there is not a direct correlation between mental and physical age. And given that we can only easily measure physical age, we should be using that to make our laws. Kids are stupid and we should keep them away from places because they would only worsen them. Protecting privacy is only a side effect to the true good that comes from COPPA.

Yeah, can you stop calling kids stupid? My 9-year-old friend is probably smarter than you.

And fuck, maybe the sites should have an IQ test or something instead.

No, seriously.

9? You do a good job at hiding your underage, don’t you?

lol but what is coppa .

It’s a really anti-kid (and possibly unconstitutional – Cough again.) that prevents people under 13 years old from doing anything on the internet due to “privacy issues”, because apparently, kids are too dumb to fake their age.
