So many games came out in past few years which fit this definition:"indie 2D platformer with pixelated (retro) graphics and a gimmick". I can't fault critics for docking points when developpers implement such an overused style. It's just been done so many times before, and probably better.

I would argue that the marketing is needed because of all the (in my opinion, completely unjustified) hate that systemd gets. Let's not forget Arch users have been happily using systemd for a long time now, so the prophecies of end times coming with systemd seem a bit exaggerated.

That is not my experience with Arch. I very rarely need to do anything after the update. You just have to quickly check the homepage before updates to know if there's anything that could break, and that happens pretty rarely, especially now that the switch to systemD is complete.
