I love how this site has over two dozen comments for a game most notable for having an ancient lineage.

Can't tell if you think it's a low or high post count.
I think it's terribly low considering the pedigree of the site, but understandable when the game is on the turdy side.

Why did they even bother? America is a de facto police state now anyway. Who the hell would anyone complain to? And who the hell would do it anything about if they did?

I don't get the part that I underlined. Who/what are you talking about?

But as for "Why did they even bother?" Because colleges are businesses and they don't want people googling UC Davis and getting some fat campus cop pepper spraying students in the face. It's a little too late for Kent State, imagine searching that as a 16 year old doing some early school research. Only 5 out of the top 15 results aren't soldiers shooting students when you google image search for "Kent State".

Also, here's the current top grossing movies with RT scores. Only one "fresh" in the whole bunch. Tells you a lot how much people pay attention to critics:

TOP BOX OFFICE

19% The Boss $23.6M
28% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice $23.4M
98% Zootopia $14.3M
28% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 $6.5M
51% Hardcore Henry $5.1M
47% Miracles from Heaven $4.7M
11% God's Not Dead 2 $4.1M
12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant $3.5M

Those are teeny tiny numbers though. Box office ain't big right now. It's April for godsakes.

That he put "gamers" in quotation marks means he's discussing a certain subset of gamers, and one anyone that's been in nearly any multiplayer game with voice capabilities knows.

No this is the same crap the gaming media did back during the height of the #gg crap. "We didn't mean all gamers just "gamers"." It's just as insulting and wrong.

"mexicans" are rapists
"muslims" are terrorists
"black people" are thieves

Don't call me a racist! Clearly some / a lot of people in those groups do act like that! That's why I put it in quotes.

The only way the quotes work like that is if you're criticizing the claim or people who make those claims, it's not the same if you're also one of the people making the claim.

Choosing a favorite hobby then committing very deeply to it isn't comparable to being born a race or religion.

That said, as mentioned, part of it is that these people believe they're the one true gamers.

Like every sect ever are the true believers.

edit: And yes it's comparable. Equivalent, no.
Besides what's being compared isn't the identification, it's the particular tactic of persecution. Stereotyping.

Yes, but again, it was said by gamers about a bad segment.

I mean, you're acting as if the jackasses on Xbox Live haven't been mocked here, specifically, for over a decade.

Yes as jackasses from Xbox live, not as gamers or "gamers".

Someone explain to me this. I have relatives living in Europe, by marriage, that seem compelled to send me articles on American politics. Yet, I could careless about what's happening in their country. Why do they care?

Why does the world care about who the leader of the most powerful/influential country in the world is? Is that your question?

I think Tachikoma is criticising these people's claim that they are the true gamers, that they speak for all of us. Those who treat gaming like an exclusive club and who harass perceived threats to this club and who will only accept criticism of games from other club members - so only people who like games are allowed to dislike games.

If that's the case, I can see where he's coming from but it is at best a clumsy, unhelpful and inconsiderate description.

I don't get that feeling from his post at all.
But you're right that that was an argument made during the #gg crap but even then I felt like it was a straw man... Gamers are an inclusive group, you like and play games then you're a gamer. Some trolls harassed a woman, and then the media ran with the idea that "gamers are misogynists" that spawned #gamergate since people who weren't involved in the harassment at all were pissed, and it was only later that "gamers" came into play as a recalculation when the media realized they were insulting their own customers. People still wanted to be gamers, but the disconnected media wrote articles about how the term needed to go away, etc.

You're still missing the point of my comment there. I understand how the Jawas work, that's not the issue. The issue is that they happen to bring the droids to Anakin's son.

--

Have you only seen TFA once? There are so many things that you've missed and it really shows when you lay out small context clues and details from ANH that explain the story but can't do the same for TFA even though they're there. You needn't explain to me how the story works in ANH, my earlier bullet points on ANH were not to criticize it specifically but to criticize the manner in which you criticized TFA.

I defeated your childish shit in a single sentence, you're the one playing defense. My views tend to be a bit more nuanced and I don't try to force others to agree with me by painting them all with the same brush.


Complaining that people disagree with you is about 90% of your posts in these topics.

You never did explain why a man writing some of Feminist Frequency's tweets means their founder is 100% discredited, you just complained that this was questioned - "A defense for everything and for everything a defense, I shouldn't be surprised." was your response, yet "people just don't want to listen" was your complaint a couple of days ago. If you had any appreciation of nuance, you wouldn't have consistently misrepresented others views.

The dude he replied to said,"The only reason it`s expected is because "gamers" are a bunch of misogynistic, bigoted assholes."

I don't really care what Redmask has said in previous posts, he's right on calling out that crap here and now.

- The Jawas capture R2 because they're established as extremely effective scavengers of the Jundland wastes. It's also established there are droid scanners.

You didn't address my actual point on this one. The cheap part is that they bring the droids to the Lars farm where Luke lives, not that they get captured.
