As a Christian, it does frustrate me a bit when people bash on my fellow believers for something as dumb as a video game. As stated by others above, these people simply don't excel when it comes to video games.

As already stated, I don't think it's fair to attach their religious beliefs to their opinions on video games just because they have the word "Christian" in their website name. Just because they aren't video game savvy doesn't mean all Christians are the same.

I hope none of this was referring to my comment. I mean it is generally a thing in a lot of ideologies (religious, political or otherwise) where people will only take in stuff from within their own spheres. It's also something which I personally try to avoid like the plague. My thoughts on a news site that calls itself "Christian news" covering this sort of topic are the same as they would be for one that was "progressive news", "conservative news", "secular news" and so on. I get why those sites would exist for covering those topics but I don't like the idea of a narrow viewed slant on a range of topics. It's unsettling. It just pushes everyone further apart, it's really stupid.

And yes, it's unsettling because of anecdotes like that person I mentioned who refused to enjoy music if it wasn't "Christian". Immediate disapproval because I couldn't say what the artists particular beliefs were, very strange, I couldn't care less about that sort of crap. I'd have the same view if the person asked whether the artist voted progressive or conservative although TBH I doubt anyone would ever ask that. If you close yourself off like that then you're going to have a very distorted view of the rest of the world, particularly if it's news. And it's something that happens across the board and it seems to be happening even here in this thread. Calls for the thread to be locked. Seriously guys and not just the people on this forum, across the political, religious and whatever divide there is. Just grow some balls.

We don't have to. I found the source of this rumour:
http://fantendo.wikia.com/wiki/Mario_Kart_9

It's a fansite with a fantasy MK9 with the exact features (it's on Wii U, story mode, mario kart shop) mentioned in the article. Release date on the site is 2012/2013 though.

Well, that's clearly wrong. I thought we were supposed to get an updated Mario Kart 8.1 before skipping 9 and moving right onto Mario Kart 10. Isn't that how everybody's doing it these days?

I see what you did there.

WTH is that graph even trying to say? At least with the pie chart you can see that he's trying to illustrate attach rate (and failing miserably), but this graph is so utterly baffling in its complete worthlessness. That's gotta be the ugliest way to confusingly chart a bunch of irrelevant information I've ever seen.

The best I can come up with is that whoever made that graph started making it while trying to make a "damning point". About how the Wii U version was going to be the "least generous" of the releases is the best I can think of. Then when they produced the graph they realised that it was actually about on par if not better than usual in terms of content..... but they ran with it anyway. And now the website OP linked to is taking it as gospel. Who said journalism was dead? Yeah, GG, they were right.

I'm not a Christian and that site makes me feel sad on your behalf. That said there is this odd "only Christian content is good" thing that's a thing. I was once sharing some music with someone and they liked it, then they asked "are they Christian". When I said "I don't think so" they were immediately not-interested at all. I really, really don't understand that approach to things but I know it does exist and so I'm not at all surprised a site like this exists.

That's sad that some religious people cannot be open to other people and their interests. It wasn't like you were listening to some atheist song or some crap. People need to live a little. And yes, I TOO AM a Christian, and I'm proud of it. I also cuss like a sailor, play violent video games, and listen to inappropriate music. Nobody's perfect. In fact, it would make someone a BETTER Christian if they admitted they aren't perfect. But that's just my opinion. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go back to reading my Bible, and shooting some people in the face in insert bloody M rated game here.

That may have been the worst "gaming site" I've ever gone to.

On a related note, Polygon is a joke website. I guess that original website must not know that, if they're using them as a reference in their article.

And seriously, I don't understand all the Christian bashing ... because the website has a religious affiliation, it's "no surprise" that they have wrong information? Grow up. I'm sure if it was called Atheist Daily we wouldn't be bashing them for their beliefs.

With all said and done, we frown upon religious jokes here. Also, I will end this thread before someone says something they will regret.
