Shark jumped.

I'd say BlizzCon was never anything good enough to warrant a shark jumping, but yeah, having Metallica play is a sign of desperation and deep lameness for any event.

This game isn't anymore ridiculous than Death of Klinghoffer currently playing in NYC. But I guess there isn't quite enough antisemitism in Hatred to make it palatable for the masses.

Here's a nice article on The Death of Kinghoffer. It's a problematic piece, but it isn't about senseless killing. It has more to say than that. What it says may not be to your liking and may be antisemitic, but it has more to say than just "something is alive so kill it."

Hatred is just about killing. It has nothing to say. The developers are repeatedly claiming they have nothing to say. No plot. Nothing political. The killings aren't for any reason but because the character can. The character has no backstory. There's nothing being said at all.

So what? If they fail, they fail. If they break even or turn a profit what does that say exactly? Not much than what is already known (at least about the developer) but it will say a lot about the market. In any case this is all just speculation anyway until the game is released we wont really know. I for one am firmly against censorship of any kind, and if we want to push things further and we start considering games as art and we still censor them then where do we stop?? There have been plenty of movies, books about sociopathic killers, so why not games??

No one is censoring this. Censoring is telling them they're not allowed to make it.
People are instead telling them they're absolute fuckwads for making it. Since you're against censorship, I assume you fully support everyone speaking their mind about the developer's fuckwadness and seemingly Neo Nazi ties.

I mean, we can all basically do what we want, right? If I want to, I can go to a Taco Bell and eat 100 gorditos in one sitting. No one is going to sit there and tell me I'm not allowed to. But just because I can do it, and just because no one will tell me I'm not allowed to do it, doesn't mean it's something I should do.

Most books and movies about sociopathic killers tend to have a purpose or a point, from Natural Born Killers point about sensationalizing and celebratizing awful people to American Psycho's commentary on how vapid the banker elite are. This game expressly denies having any point other than slaughter. Movies and books along these lines tend to die quick deaths and be reviled.

Some DLC is good value for money, some DLC is not. Buying a season pass is basically a gamble.
This is pretty much my point of contention with the Season Pass system. I have stopped buying season passes because of this.

I never really find DLC much worthwhile.
And the only "Season Pass" I bought was for Borderlands 2. I bought it after I finished Borderlands 2 and wanted more Borderlands 2.

Basically, I got 4 pieces of DLC for less than the price of 3. When I knew I already wanted it.
Seemed like a fine deal.

Another day, another death threat. Can we admit they are too common yet, and not merely directed at self-described feminists?

Yeah, because, you know, one death threat to a man is worth the dozens to females we've had in weeks that included images of people's family and mentions of their home addresses.

It's like the guys that keep arguing that men are more likely to be victims of domestic violence, ignoring that a 120lb women hitting a 200lb man has a drastically different impact than the reverse.

Has she been?
She's been discussed relentlessly, but I haven't seen (nor looked for) a single interview with her.

You guys know that computer created child porn is illegal in the US, right?

Anything "obscene" that involves children, real or otherwise, having sex, is illegal. Only Souter had an issue with this. I can't recall the case, it was upheld in 2008 by the SC after being shot down (and rewritten) in 2002. Child pornography is found to be outside the First Amendment. However, these cases hinged on things other than CGI porn.

In any case, any pornographic image of a minor is illegal. Again, art isn't considered pornographic (you can buy plenty of coffee table books of naked 14 year olds), and porn isn't found to be art. Realistic images that are not of an actual minor, meaning stuff that's photoshopped or CGI or well drawn, is illegal if it's found to be obscene. And non-realistic drawings must also be found to be obscene. I'm guessing Manga is non-realistic drawings. And probably often obscene.

This is a good summary. I hadn't heard about that Simpsons case.

Hey, not a bad idea. Let me one up you:

If a comment thread has an article related to GamerGate in it, we talk about Star Citizen. Yes? Yes? YES!

Is it going to be the greatest game this decade, or the greatest game ever?

Jesus, are you trying to break blues? I mean there has to be some theoretical memory limit to a post count after all.

"Chris Roberts hires Anita Sarkeesian as community manager"

Is Derek Smart writing the AI routines? I mean, this is his wheelhouse...

Go have a fucking rally already. Hold hands and sing Kumbaya with the other SJWs where you can all sit in a drum circle and commiserate about how fucking awful the rest of us are because we really don't give a shit about this stupidity - and that's all it is. I have plenty of empathy...for things that actually matter.

No empathy because we won't join the SJW circle-jerk. Holy blue flaming Jesus on a pogo stick! Rolleyes

Even those that hate me have to admit this guy adds the least value here, right?

I mean, come on. All those redundant posts about how evil Apple is but saying women shouldn't be allowed to talk is ok.

I propose that we create a new rule. If a comment thread has an article related to GamerGate in it, we talk about something else like hockey or TV shows we're watching.

Anyone been watching Gotham? What do you think so far? I feel like it has a lot of potential but it's not one of those shows I eagerly wait to watch each week. I've never really been able to get excited about procedurals. For example once Person of Interest became more about the overall plot and less about the number of the week, I liked it a lot more.

I hear terrible things about Gotham. The only shows with me episodes I'm watching at the moment are John Oliver, bobs burgers and south park. Nothing else looks worth the time.

When are archer and Rick & Morty back?

Or, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I mean, it's obviously both, but usually a Season Pass is a half-decent sign of confidence.
Of course, being confident something will sell isn't the same as being confident it's good.

Or, "we're confident this is a good game that will be enjoyed by enough people and sell enough copies to support for a good, long time."

I don't understand sexism so it must not exist. Why do you care about things that don't exist?
<continues to poke the Cutter-Bear in the eye>
And someone please quote me...

I paraphrased a bit.

Sexism will always exist. Welcome to the genders of male and female. Learn to cope with it already.

This is true about pretty much everything Cutter ever bitches about.
In standard Cutter form, anything that impacts him directly is a horrible offense and must be rectified. Anything that either doesn't impact him or benefits him is something people need to shut up and deal with.

I don't use "sociopath" lightly, but the dude only cares about himself and has zero empathy for anyone else. Any political, economic or social issue is important only if Cutter deems it so.

GamerGate - Humans lol, does this constitute some sort of quasi internet False Flag playing groups against one another?


I like that they ask him why he liked a hate group on Facebook, and his response is "I don't watch TV, so I need some place to see the news." Yeah, and that's why Strom Thurmond liked the KKK.

During his first campaign to be POTUS I expressed concern about Obama being a member of racist Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years. The general response was just because he was a member doesn't mean he subscribed to everything the pastor preached. Does that not apply here as well?

The problem is that Wright said a whole lot of standard churchy stuff, and some objectionable churchy stuff.

The group that the developer liked on Facebook is solely a hate group. That's their exclusive cause.

I'll wait until Cutter says something reprehensible. On this board, I mean, I'm sure he's off saying something reprehensible wherever he is right now.

Why do you guys keep feeding that troll? Put that clown on ignore and do everyone a favour. Why else do you think he has to snipe or play devils advocate in every single topic he enters? I admit it took me a while to catch on, but he is nothing but a troll and should be ignored.

Cutter wrote on Jun 30, 2014, 12:12:
Why do the PR people keep allowing her to speak when she's only there to be pretty? Everything she just stated only shows why she should have never been promoted in the first place. That's the problem when companies choose looks over talent.

There's no misogyny problem around here, and Cutter is not worth a permaban for being a horrible, reprehensible person, but he's previously said she should not be allowed to speak and should only be allowed to be pretty.
She ran the entire studio, one of the largest studios in the world, but she shouldn't be allowed to speak.

Anyone want to defend Cutter on this?
And someone please quote me so he can do his standard drive-by, say something awful and/or wrong and never, ever return.
