"fill out our online questionnaire"....

RE the new email, with its bizarrely conventional invitational to give our "views"...

Particularly our "views" on what exact phrases should best sum up the forthcoming S+M season...

Does anyone else find this as profoundly disturbing as I do? I'm a little drunk, admittedly*, but why the arse are we being asked our opinion of what exact phrases would be most compelling to part with our pennies? I mean...

Well, I'm quite lost for words here. Am I overreacting? To the temeritous point, is it tolerable for Telltale to be trebucheting trite telemarketing towards our teased and taunted tremultuations?

I say no. Twice and thrice no! Not right at all. Fire the consultants. With fire. Max would and should be dismayed, and (at last, appropriately) violently vengeful.

Or possibly that was a glorious parody designed specifically for arses like me to get all riled up. Please let that be so... Pleasey please....

*Actually, I'm an absurdly tall drunk, but still, I think my point stands, like me - precariously yet peculiarly proudly...

    Classic.

    Surveys are ALWAYS a chore to take.
    Either take or I never met a "good" survey.

  • I just took the survey just to kill time. And time it has killed!

  • Joystiq put up a different survey with the same contents that results in a free episode... getter done!

  • I liked the survey.

    It was kinda hard thinking of my favourite games, singers and movies and trying to make them English-language ones, so I kinda gave up halfway and wrote down some that are not, bu are famous enough they should have translations for the most part.
    I also tried to make it variated. As in, since I like comedy and mystery, write down a movie that's funny and one that's a thriller... Or stuff like that.
    I can't swear that what I wrote down would be the same if I took the survey right now, since I rarely have "all time favourites", but I certainly didn't lie, and wrote down stuff I do really love.

    As far as I understood, the point was to know if people preferred more mystery, or more comedy, or more fantasy and stuff like that. I'm afraid I wasn't very useful in the music department as I listen to music for the lyrics mostly, and I'm not sure that will help them. But as long as you keep Jared the music will be perfect.
    Anyways.

    I didn't really care about the 15% off (I don't want to buy anything right now), but I was glad I could give my opinion. Plus who knows, I might find some use for it anyways.

    The part about choosing our favourite phrasing made sense, I've answered lots of surveys, they always ask things like that. It's normal, they do want to sell the game. Knowing how to present it to make it appealing would definitely be useful.

    And don't be afraid that they're going to do things to please the masses or whatever. I mean, they're obviously already working on it. They probably just want to know which direction the fans would prefer or something, but they'll do something they like and can be proud of, they won't sell out, I'm sure of that.

  • I was answer it when I see the "Favorite Shows" and... well... I don't watch TV anymore. I don't even watch Anime, I just read Manga. And the only actual show I do watch is... Samurai Sentai Shinkenger!!!!! Whoooo!!!!

    That was random, I know

    I know, I haven't had TV in years... So I answered with shows I liked but they're not necessarily the newest shows ever made. I'm sure that still works.

    I always have great difficulty answering "favourite X" questions too... there are so many awesome things out there, and you want me to pick just 3?!

    Yours is a good strategy. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who probably takes these things too seriously. :p

    I know! The worst is when you have to make a whole list of your ONE favourite somethings. Like, favourite movie, favourite book, favourite song, favourite dish...
    I always wonder if some people DO have a favourite one. Because I don't. The only I have is "favourite colour" (red) and that's due to the fact that we were 4 kids and our parents, to make sure they didn't mix our things, asked all of us to chose a colour which became "our" colour, and I chose red. (So my mother would sew a red dot on the inside of my clothes for instance, and she knew they were mine).
    As a result with console games, I'd have the red save game, the red controller if there were several colours (N64) and so on.
    So red isn't as much the most pleasing colour ever as it is part of my identity as much as my first name, if I'm making sense.
    I still buy stuff in red when I can, although I've been drifting more and more away from it.
    By the way, my brothers chose blue, green and yellow/orange (it's kind of "cheating" that he got two, but lots of things only offer one or the other so it was simpler that way.)
