  • From what I’ve read, most “door busters” are not really super loss leaders. They’re just to get shoppers in the doors where the confluence being around things to buy and the holiday season “starting” will have them spend on other things that aren’t marked down as heavily.

    I’m curious as to what others who don’t take it seriously would put for the second question which reads:

    “What do you think is the most important issue facing our country?
    Health Care Reform
    Social Issues
    Government Overspending
    The Economy”

    I read it as “These are the issues that you guys like and that we think maybe that we can win on! So what avenues should we exploit in our attack ads?”

    The first question asks where money should be spent by asking which areas of the federal government are the most important for conservatives to control, while the third highlights four specific Republicans (DeMint, Rand Paul, Rubio, Mike Lee) as well as the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee and asks favorability ratings on them.

    I played “A Closed World” twice today. The first time, I got the expected “plot twists” in line with their research statement. The second, I didn’t, which really jarred me, and according to the product owner, it also jarred other players as well as per comments on other websites.
    The reason I played a second time, however, was because the ending just felt off to me and I wanted to make sure that I read it correctly.

    The ending reads to me as though the specific crucible of life for LGBTQ is a positive thing, since it becomes a drive for something, portrayed as pushing forward by the game. Given the recent increased reporting of suicides, I interpret that as a negative, and as such, it reads as an endorsement of the status quo and a hopeful yet defeated acceptance of it.
