Yeah Jivaro, I'm pretty sure they had a breach and just aren't telling people. I had my password compromised which is pretty much impossible considering I use 2 factor + 13 character generated passwords with KeePass on a thumb drive.

The game is not wanting for content, if anything it gives pretty good value for the money. They are releasing content as part of the season pass nonsense which is totally optional. Most DLC is pretty mediocre anyway and you can already pick up cheap Steam keys of this.

It was okay but its easy to see why it failed with the market overall, I do respect Disney for the effort.

It can't be a worse port than FFX13

I seem to recall a few people defended that port, that's the sad thing.

He's not a marketing drone, hes the games producer. He was also misquoted:

"Update: Yamagiwa has stated via Twitter that the "30 FPS is the best framerate to play action games in," quote from the PlayStation Lifestyle interview is a misquote/translation. "We are to assign 1080p/30fps for Bloodborne considering its game designs, but didn't say it's the best choice for all action games" he said

Emphasis mine.

It's not the correct place, what you are doing is watering down the severity of this issue by throwing the attention elsewhere.

No, its asking if its such a severe problem then where are people like you on it? Equality, right? So where is your concern for others? Why is it limited to only one gender?

Since the guy below likes the house fire analogy, why should I care about my neighbors house when mine has been set ablaze several times and no one made it a big media issue?

I'm hoping that the PS4 will have a sale this holiday season. I want to play The Last of Us and GTA5.

LoU was fantastic. It leaves a mark behind.


Agreed. It has some stumbles in the middle and the controls are a bit clumsy but overall its a fantastic game and story, some of the best characterization in a video game so far.

Nice to see Microsoft trying to compete, lets see how Sony responds. The Xbox One OS updates are coming along much better/faster than the PS4.

Hmm, thread only made it to mid-fifties. Could we be on the downward slide? Might we have reached, PEAK GAMERGATE???

Well you can only go in circles with the same 5 people for so long. It's not like any of these articles bring any actual news. It's the same stupid "discussion" over and over and over and over...

Agreed I'm tired of it. The bottom line for me is that I'm well read on the subject now and I do not believe there is a rampant issue that needs addressing in any way other than social change which goes at its own pace. People just assume there is a problem because some people claim there is one. Feminists do not want equality, they want superiority and acceptance of their agenda. It is incredibly naive to think that equality is the end goal given examples of unhappy feminists are with several other forms of media despite pretty much getting what they asked for. There are some misguided supporters who seem to think they need to defend women here but they already have several ways to make change happen and express themselves.

TBH, though, I would be more sympathetic to GG if threads on it didn't derail so often into GG supporters writing screeds on how feminists (or Anita Sarkeesian in particular) are ruining the industry (they aren't--and if you can find some actual facts to show that they are I'll eat my hat) or personally profiteering from the conflict (again, facts please).

You're certainly big on demands from others, how about you start providing facts to support the idea that this rampant sexism is taking place and that this is some big crisis that needs this much attention? No one said shes ruining the industry by the way but she clearly has an agenda and it is very one sided as has been repeatedly pointed out.

I would also be more sympathetic if the movement actually followed the ethical standards it so proudly displays on any GG FAQ page. Trying to kill advertising for websites that write things you don't like or trying to get writers fired for having opinions (or making jokes) you don't like doesn't strike me as particularly ethical behavior.

That IS ethical behavior. There is nothing wrong with voicing your opinion about an issue to an advertiser. Ironically feminists have been using similar approaches for a long time.

Also, I wish GG supporters would stop with the "GG has raised $X for charity" nonsense. I don't care how much money GG raised for charity. Even the KKK gives to charity: it doesn't mean shit. Basically, if you're running around setting things on fire then I don't want anything to do with your group.

Why not a Nazi analogy while you're at it? Sad, I thought you were supposedly reaching for a higher discourse but clearly not.

The only reason I bring it up at all is there's a lot of "well they're doing it too, fancy that hmmmmmmmmm" going around and while I'm sure it's satisfying to say it doesn't really do much other than that.

They don't have to prove anything. Again, those sorts of comments are intended to show when the media is being one sided, they can go to credibility depending on the context or to force others to examine where they're coming from in the first place. In this case though its more of a "so what" to an exasperating story with little information.

As for Twitter, its only real use is bugging corporations who ignore email IMO

While I agree with you, it doesn't necessarily apply to this twitter drama

In a situation with completely anonymous sources, no official info and very vague assertions without any actual links or documentation I think its fair game. It's not like there is much else to discuss. "Some random people harassed some anonymous person on twitter, she thinks its because of this situation." ok then.

You still have not addressed the original issue.

That's why it's fallacious; because it doesn't refute a point, merely deflects the criticism.

It's not fallacious if it goes toward factual statements or credibility as I said already. Not every statement has to refute another either, pointing out hypocrisy is often used to force others to direct their own views internally.

This story is too vague to really decide whats what anyway.

The thing about calling out a hypocrite is that it doesn't actually refute the point. You're not denying anything nor are you successfully justifying anything by calling someone out on hypocrisy.


Nonsense, peoples backgrounds and motives are often just as important as what they're saying. We see this in many other areas of society too - public discourse, legal issues, financial markets, etc. Being hypocritical can often totally negate a point to those you're trying to reach, particularly when it relates to factual statements or credibility.

I was one of the only weirdos on earth that didn't really care for the Avengers I think, so I wasn't all that hyped for the sequel... but good lard that Age of Ultron trailer is incredible.

You're not alone, I thought it was kinda average at best. It had good moments but a lot of filler and bullshit too. The Honest Trailers for that movie is spot on with its bad and good points. I'm not a fan of the PG13 generic superhero films in general though to be honest, they're like a lite beer in film format.

Also, how can Unity afford this guy? Maybe he's taking a massive pay cut because it's a passion project for him? Something doesn't add up here.

John used to be CEO of Sara Lee, you know, the people who make those desserts. Maybe Sara Lee is going to buy Unity. CONSPIRACCYYY!!!!

Future Sara Lee desserts to be distributed in DLC format.
