In no way am I saying it's practical to eliminate it entirely. I just don't see a problem with people making an effort to reduce the undesirable behavior of the community.

Aside that I agree But it's the Internet. Nobody is gonna change it, not even feminists.

The open letter is asking the community to “take a public stand against it”, so I’m pretty sure that qualifies this open letter as ‘taking a stand’. But I'm curious...what in your mind would qualify as ‘taking a stand’?

You take stand by actions, not by petitions. Signing something online makes absolutely no difference to anyone. As long as SJW media is around this war will not end anyway.

The judge's original July ruling endorsed the US government's position that it should be able to access the world's servers. "It is a question of control, not a question of the location of that information," Preska ruled.

That's both reasonable and rationale. I have to say, I agree with that. Just because MS has something stashed away in another country, they are the ones that are controlling it and they are ultimately a US company subject to US law - in theory at any rate.



Except they are also subject to the laws where the data resides and in this case obeying US law would mean violating European law.

Near the bottom of the KS it shows that one of the future projects could be an F1 cockpit.

But what's the chance for this KS to succeed and that particular cockpit ever being made? I think these guys have a great idea, but it might not be such a hit on KS. Especially as they only have 1 prototype (understandable, but they need at least a car cockpit too)

It's interesting. I just finished Crysis 2. Only one female character, but a particularly strong female character. Well, not that any characters in that game are particularly strong.

And I'm in Max Payne 3 now. Most of the females are basically sex workers or stupid party girls you need to rescue. But it's in Brazil, playing to the noir aspect. Still, that part feels more Rockstar and less Max Payne. Unless a female pops out of the woodwork soon, I don't really have a sense for how far into the game I am.

Yeah, well, it's developers like Rockstar that do "deserve" a militant-feminist beating. Their approach and/or view on women seems to be that of a 16 year-old, with a PS controller in his left hand and his penis in his right. In fact, it's the entire image of Rockstar for me. It's kind of a paradox that their games are so extremely solid nonetheless.

It's Rockstar's right to make sexist games, though they are certainly very good at that... GTA isn't an example I would deny if someone said that is sexist. No female protagonists in ANY rockstar game ever. At least Saints Row has females that kick-ass, not sure that is sexist, but it sure as hell is a lot less sexist than GTA ever was.. at least relating to that I can understand females... it's no fun to always play macho gangstahs, or macho ex-cops

Which is it?

Hmm I think this is a good translation:

"So eine (Frau) willst Du als Beispiel für gesunden Menschenverstand nennen?"

Note the diff between "eine Frau" und "diese Art Frau". You're specifying a gender in both, but because the latter allows for other types of women, the gender isn't central info - it's just because she happens to be a woman.

I.e. it's really a "the kind of person who ..." thing and the woman bit is just incidental. A German would write "so jemanden" then, but this is an odd case where colloquial English is more gendered than German (usually it's the other way around). If you actually wrote "This kind of person" in English it would actually have a more inflammatory timbre to it because it has moral overtones ("bad person"). He could have used "someone like that", but I guess it's just not his writing style.

I really don't think it was a play on gender.

Thank you. Mhh, I will take this to heart. It seems I blamed Beamer wrongly. It really makes more sense if you read it as "So eine willst du als Beispiel nennen....?" that certainly doesn't have focus on her gender. I just simply didn't consider that.

Ps.: Very Interesting how our 2 translations differ though, It seems I have been formed by other stylist tones and now always assume that tone in my translations. That is something to keep in mind for the future. Had you not mentioned it, I may never have noticed.

So... sorry Beamer. ;p (Now the world will end)

PPs.: And thanks SHO for taking the time to explain.

You are portraying her as something to make your point, and in doing that you use her sex and work against the opinions she shared on twitter (you yourself said "This is a women you want to cite for common sense?" in order to counter OUR argument.

I realize this is probably going to earn me a "you and Beamer are in cahoots" again, but I really think you just misread the sex/gender part. Writing "This is a (wo)man)" is just a common figure of speech in English and not meant to call out the person's gender. It's just a gender-fitted version of "This is a person". If you wanted to highlight the gender, you'd phrase it "Do you really want to trust a woman on this?" or similar. I mean, come on, if Beamer were guilty of everything he gets accused of in this thread, that would be one epic fuckup since it doesn't fit his supposed agenda in any way.

(I realize the fun factor of the two German guys in the thread debating the finer points of the English tongue.)

So you are saying when he says "This is a women you want to cite for common sense?" he does not play on her gender? To me that sounds like sarcasm (I mean what he wrote) ie "Why would you quote a women that works at *** for your argument, she is a WOMEN and she WORKS there, she not able to show common sense".

I don't mind arguing finer points of language, how else would we learn if not by making mistakes and being made aware of them? It's perfectly possible that this is a problem with my translation of that sentence. How would you translate it?

For me it reads either as this

"Du zitierst diese Frau als Beispiel gesunden Menschverstands?

Or as this

"Du zitierst eine Frau als Beispiel gesunden Menschverstands?

Which is it?

he said "a women" not "this women" So the 2nd translation is what I read. Is that wrong? Is it a common phrase? To say "that women" as in "that person" ? If so then I am really not reading "a women" as "diese Frau" sondern als "eine Frau"

Hope I am not too confusing here ;p

Ps.: If that is indeed a common phrase and I mistranslated it then I would indeed have blamed Beamer for something he couldn't possibly have meant.

I think a lot people under estimate how important good audio is in games. Ever watched a deleted scene on a bonus DVD, how strange things sound without all of the enhancements, and music. It's not like graphics which are in your face obvious, sound is very subtle but just as important as graphics.

I have a high end 5.1 system, I do not under appreciate sound Now youtube is a bad place to demo this anyway.. but realistic is not always better. Especially in gaming.

And eraser, saying "this is the woman" doesn't mean I'm using her gender, thank you. She is, in fact, a woman. And though she calls herself a feminist, her body of work isn't on feminism and the impact on women, but rather decrying feminism due to the impact on men. Nearly everything she writes is about men, not about women. That's her specialty.

But that has no relevance when she posts opinions as her twitter feed is clearly her own opinion even if paid for. Maybe I worded it wrong (no, actually I said battleship sunk, I never implied you were sexist ,p), I don't think you were sexist, I said you were doing what SJW's are doing and accusing us of doing. (yay)

And if I didn't said that in previous post I must go back and edit that. Because that's what I meant

Ps.: On second thought, I am too lazy to do that, so just imagine my other post says that ;p

Wait, you're the "oligarchy" guy, right? Forget it.

Who's paying for the opinion is important context.

No it actually isn't when it comes to social issues. If the opinion has face value on it's own it should be regarded as such. Even if it was "paid for" by a think tank. You are acting as if nobody had an agenda and only those who don't have an agenda should be taken serious. If we followed that line of reasoning no opinion would be worth anything. Not mine, not yours, not anyones. Because everyone has an agenda.

This is a woman you want to cite for common sense?
Congrats. You've just done exactly what the sjw's are claiming that other people are doing. Not only did you attack her for her sex, but you also attacked her for her work without any factual refutations.

Shots fired... and battleship sunk.

250...

What? No it isn't. I never attacked her sex, nor did I fail to cite her work. I have no clue what that guy is going on about, but since you said he sunk my battleship, I'd like you, not him, to point it out, as it seems like you quoted him just to be against me, as what he said has zero validity. Jdreyer has even quoted my citation, in case you have me on ignore, so it's easy to see.

What, why would I ignore you? That would be childish... I literally have not a single person here on Ignore, I just don't always have time to reply.

You are portraying her as something to make your point, and in doing that you use her sex and work against the opinions she shared on twitter (you yourself said "This is a women you want to cite for common sense?" in order to counter OUR argument.(Not sure you did that intentionally or it was born out of the argument itself..). That is imo the very definition of what SJW's accused US (Gamers) of doing.

That she is a women and that she does work for a questionable employee, sure.. all correct. But that does not change her stance on this issue nor her feminist views, by linking these things together you made more or less an indirect ad-hominem attack. And it does not change the quality of her opinions. You were basically saying "Because she works there for those guys, her opinions are worthless"

Maybe that is only how it is interpreted by us because of our way of thinking in this case. But you have to admit that your argumentation is a bit weird. Instead of attacking OUR opinion you attacker HER's by portraying her in certain way to heighten the value of your argument and in doing so tried to lower the value of our argument, not by making statements in regards to our views, but by linking to where she works. Heck, If she were a male I would still call you out on this. It is just bad form in argumentation to not reply to something that is said, but to try to reduce validity of arguments through this way of argumentation.

But as I say, it is maybe not something you do with the intention that we perceive. Maybe it's us that see this and others don't?

TLDR: You tried to deflect by strawmen argument. (Where she works is COMPLETELY irrelevant to her feminist views)

Ps.: Holy crap, 63 typo's.. that's what I get for drinking coffee while typing

I wouldn't say Season 2 of Walking Dead is better than S1 at all. The first three episodes were pretty average (save perhaps the first). That said, it did end with a bang and a lot of potential for next season considering how wildly the ending varies based on choices.

I will say that by the end I was as emotionally distraught as I was by the end of S1. Especially with what happens to Clem 2/3 the way through. It still amazes me that this is the only game to elicit as large an emotional response as a great book or a terrific movie. I've seen some people say the same about Bioshock: Infinite with Elizabeth but the final events of the Rapture DLC Ep2 had not remotely the same impact on me as S2Ep5 of Walking Dead has, let alone the later episodes of S1.

Yep pretty much agree. The 2nd season wasn't particularly strong but it still was one hell of an emotional wtf ride.. especially the ending.... too bad these short episodes don't really lend themselves to lots of characterization

Problem is I *still* remember these games backwards and forwards. And while they were great I have no desire to go back to them. Why don't they pony up some more dough and make some new CPRGs ala PE, W2, DoS, Shadowrun, et al? I'd be far more interested in that then these old games being updated a bit.

Either that or update some friggin games that would really benefit from it, like Outlaws in the UE4 engine or something.

I am in the same boat. I played Icewind dale 1 and 2, was good. But no motivation to replay. even BG2, as much as I love that is imo better kept in my memory than doing actual replaying.
