Like livestreaming while jerking off to porn while wearing the Oculus Rift and nothing else.


And that is a bad thing how?

Violent video games are slowly taking away your guiltiness…

I thought that's what the internet was for...

I thought it was TV.

I thought it was Dungeons and Dragons.

I thought it was Rock and Roll.

I thought it was Elvis and the Beetles.

I thought it was Radio.


Did I miss any?
That being said when I was 10, I accidentally hit a women standing right in front me in me a golf cart that I thought was off. To this day I still feel incredibly guilty about it.

As for repeatedly playing a game and feeling less guilty? If there is a game with a moral choice of good/evil, I ALWAYS default to good. It's just my nature. But when playing most Bioware games, I will play them again going down the 'evil' path and I feel guilty (think it was Mass Effect 2 where ya kick a guy out of a window, or goad the little alien guy to attack and he instantly gets killed).

But another thing the article doesn't seem to cover is yeah, if I am doing something a second time (on my 3rd attempt at Witcher 3 to get back where I saved my game last time) yeah I don't really give a shit about my choices because I've done it twice before and just want to get to the part of the game I haven't played yet.

Ok so they offer a vanilla server, but you still have to pay a monthly sub. How many people do you think will play then?

I see so much bullshit with speedrun that I really don't give a shit about them. Like a speedrun of minecraft that the guy dupes shit, exits the program and loads it back up.

So what your saying is to combat darkness we need more raves?

As for Rogue One, there are a few droids, but really surprised overall the lack of aliens and droids. Yeah a few gonk droids, but beyond human actors in gonk suits, and the cgi ones it really seems to be just a bunch of humans.

And really has noone played the new Battlefront? 4 guys running out against 3 AT-AT's?!?

Fine since you are all blind (said the guy with glasses).

Go watch it again and count the aliens.

Ok got a question for all of you about the Rogue One trailer.
Watch it again and tell me what is missing. Didn't realize it until watching it again, but there is something majorly 'Star Wars' missing from the trailer.

Windows 10 at its best, clearly proves why it's not needed or wanted. Keep up the great work Nadella.

Yeah like we haven't had any other games that were complete fuckup's in the last year on pc?

Incredibly retarded.

Now I get Cutter's moments when he goes 'off the rails' but really wtf happened to you?

Well, if y'all can not see how $199 tickets and "virtual tickets" to an ADVERTISING EVENT (where Blizz should be paying YOU for attendance and not the other way around) are completely incredibly fucking RETARDED beyond any recognition then I really don't know what to say...

Why do people pay money to be swamped with commercials, merchandise and bullshit? It's unbelievable. Though actually... thinking about it, well, there is also people paying prostitutes to shit down their throats or shove needles up their small dicks so it's probably the same kind of "issue" these people all have in common...

I mean in general not just this post. You have a 'hate on' for quite a few things.

BTW speaking of women in Disney, it would not surprise me at all if Disney pushed for a female lead. Can't remember where I read it, but Disney wants more females in it's catalog beyond the Disney Princesses, and wants to extend it's demographic beyond Marvel/Star Wars 13-29 males.

SPOILERS BELOW!

The main complaints about TFA are kind of silly. Yes, she naturally picks things up and is good at them BUT - she has defended herself with a staff for years. Not hard to make the transition to a saber from that. Some people can pick up a gun and they are naturally good shots. She has been piloting stuff before. It's not like she didn't have the background to be predisposed to being good at this stuff.

Not to mention Anakin and Luke were both god at the things she is good at. Hmmm....

And Leia hugging Rey instead of Chewie...could it be because uncle Han died and Leia senses or knows Rey is her niece?

Actually considering a lightsaber has no weight besides the hilt, comparing it to a staff is silly. The only real weight is the weight of the attacker on the saber. That being said, watch Rey's fight with Ben and you will see that she really has no skill in 1h combat beyond thrust thrust thrust.

Star Wars: Mockingjay

Disney is obviously pushing a strong female as the main character to broaden the audience and make more money but this is getting to the point of pandering.


I don't think I could care less it's a woman lead. As long as it's a cool story with Star Wars action, I'm all over it.

And thou shall not speak ill of Rey!


*mumbles* And thou shall not speak ill of Rey, and leave the cell door unlocked......


Ok the trailer was pretty good. But then again so was the last Force Awakens trailer.......

Good to see Mon Mothma.
