Hey, look! Another condescending post from bobbob.
The above is an example of trolling and flaming. Merely attacking the poster instead of the subject.

Doesn't everybody hate Xbox fans? They take Stockholm Syndrome to entirely new levels.
That implies I'd have to care first. And I really don't. And neither do you.

What criticism of the actual game do I need to provide? That its ugly? That other games have editors that allow you build stuff? If you think mining pixels or voxels or whatever the fuck they are is the height of culture then you're only proving my point for me.
What exactly does Minecraft provide as an actual game that no other game can provide. Please educate me. What exactly is the draw that's so utterly compelling and unique about it? I tried it for all of 30 minutes and I literally found that watching paint dry was far more entertaining. Literally.
No, it's a cultural phenomenon. One member of the herd hears about it and is told that this is what all the cool kids are doing. And being the conformist he is he can risk social alienation or he can go along with the crowd. Then when someone asks him about it it gives him a sense of validation and self-importance. And the cycle continues.

Yeah, and the problem with the Fire phone is it's no good to anyone who isn't in the US so that kind of puts the kibosh on that before its even begun.

Yeah, but the problem is you and I are paying ours and they're not paying theirs. They're gaming the system so everything goes their way and we keep losing and losing more. No one thinks Revolutions will ever happen, until they happen. What do you think Occupy was? Not a full blown Revolution, no, but a strong indicator of where things are headed. As things get worse, people get angrier. And then react. And it's usually a very bad, very violent reaction. We're not talking about the philosophy of economics here, were' talking about real life and real problems. And the ridiculous thing is it's all very avoidable in the first place.

Ever hear women bitch about chivalry is dead if a man doesn't open a door for a woman? Then bitch because they're capable of getting the door themselves? There's no winning, fellas.

Most people should be able to afford to live in a decent neighborhood and eat decent food. However that's not the case because some people have 20 million dollars to blow on a fucking stamp.
I don't think the item in question matters, it could be a baseball or it could be a diamond and I still think its wasteful. I didn't earn his money though, if he wants to blow it on that then who am I to tell another man how to spend his bread? It's all relative, the rich also tend to have insanely expensive lifestyles and hobbies. Do you suffer people telling you that your hobbies are stupid and to spend it elsewhere? No you don't.
That said I agree that income inequality continues to be a significant and growing problem but I don't think you're going to address it by haranguing the rich and trying to guilt them into doing anything. It might make you feel better to whine about it on the internet but it doesn't really accomplish anything. A better approach is the economic argument, societies with a stronger middle class spend more money which in turn helps enrich both society as a whole and creates more opportunity through a robust economy.

People really need to stop it with the putting soldiers on a pedestal nonsense.

Fucking Polygon. What a hypocritical lefty rag. They constantly whine about this shit but are more than happy to go to these things, accept the free swag, free games, and advertising dollars from these companies. The classic 'Do as I say, and not as I do' BS.

Yeah, tons of stuff can be interacted with, crafted, used in the environment. It's awesome as a possum. This is about the only thing I've backed I'm really happy about so far. Wish I had never given dime to Fargo and those jerks at inXile. And I'm pretty worried about the lack of progress from Project Eternity. With that last update it just seems it's hella behind schedule. And they had the gall to even ask if they should do yet more stretch goals with it. Just get it out the fucking door already.
inXile is the one doing Wasteland 2, yah? What have they've been doing that's disappointed you? I'm not up on W2 progress since it was kickstarted and then I saw a demo a few months ago on youtube. Are they f'ing it up?
