I liked this comment: "It's incredibly 2018 that someone who in their Twitter handle explicitly identifies with a violent hate group is proudly sharing screenshots of *other* people saying ugly stuff in a successful attempt to get them shunned."
Opposing fascists doesn't mean you're a violent hater, it means you're a decent person.
"There are two kinds of fascists: fascists and anti-fascists." -- Ennio Faiano.

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." -- Friedrich Nietzsche.

Most anti-fascists are just as bad as the fascists. They are just as violent, close-minded, dogmatic, and stupid. A pox on both their houses...

What is it about being an online personality that necessitates that you act like a racist, sexist, or antisemitic?

The definition of "racist, sexist or anti-semitic" is constantly expanding.

"Sex is determined by chromosomes at conception." Congratulations, you're a sexist and a transphobe! Hell, you might even be against women's rights ("conception" is a word used by those crazy anti-abortion people, right?).

Carl Orff was a brilliant composer and his Carmena Burana one of the greatest pieces of music ever arranged. He was also the official composer of the Third Reich. Yet somehow, because he was associated with this great evil, I'm supposed to judge his cantatas for his personal opinions and beliefs. Fuck all of the intersectional, postmodern progressive bullshit that can't see the art for the artist. It's one thing to not endorse someone's opinions or beliefs. It's another to refuse to recognize their skills, talents, or art...

I am absolutely LOVING the utter shitshow that Fallout 76 has turned into. Bethesda has received a free pass for far, FAR too long. It's about time they started being held to some sort of standard. In the end it will make them a better publisher of better games, after a series of painful lessons of course.

The problem is that Bethesda is a AA developer that has played too long in the AAA market. Skyrim's mod-ability (and the fans' dedication to fixing their games for them) and scope allowed Bethesda to slug above their weight class for a while. But the reality is that Bethesda can't produce AAA games outside of their (already aged) engine. An MMO is not their forte.

Either Bethesda will learn to limit their scope to something more reasonable, or they will have to grow themselves into a larger or different studio (if they can)...

I actually liked this when it first came out. Sure, it was flawed, but there was something about it that fed the ARPG loot-quest urges. I may pick this up, just to see if they've addressed some of the repetitiveness and flaws...

So, clickbait media generates clicks by hunting for corporate missteps or momentary insensitivity. Then, when they have profited from the manufactured outrage, they wonder if generating anger is healthy. Got it.

Wait, didn't this game just come out a week ago or something?!? They are offering a DLC character for a game less than a month after release? Hard to argue they didn't cut content in order to sell it back to us. Not cool. This game goes from a "maybe" to a "heavy sale" or "Nope!" (if the sale doesn't include DLC)...

I know the single most important factor in multifactorial school shootings.
And that factor is easy access to guns.

And what's wrong with that? It's a joke. Lighten the fuck up already. People losing their jobs simply because they say something that someone else finds offensive? That's fucking insane! That's PC bullshit out of control. That's downright Orwellian. What next? Re-education camps and torture until people think "correctly"? Doubleplus good, comrade!




So you'd be cool if your boss started hitting on your girlfriend "as a joke"? I mean its just a joke right? Can't you take a joke? Loosen up, man. I'd hate for your lack of humor and poor culture fit to have to come up in your next performance review.

(This response is based upon one of the incidents described in the articles on Riot's work culture. If you guys would want to work in such an environment, be my guest, but I sure as fuck wouldn't.)

I'd expect my girlfriend to come right back at him with another "joke" that wrecked him. But then again (before I married one), I tended to date strong, independent women who can stand up for themselves and don't need a soyboi savior to save them. Maybe you should try it sometime...

Kiss Riot goodbye.

Best case scenario, they swing the pendulum to the opposite extreme, hire a bunch of dead weight interested in "driv[ing] change and fight[ing] for what’s right" (as opposed to making good games), leading to a slow decline followed by closure. Get woke, go broke.

If they were smart, they would have doubled-down. That's what their critics always do when they are exposed as vile hypocrites. Honestly, outside of the click-bait media outlets who make this crap their priority, who even remembers the Kotaku article today? If they'd have hunkered down, the storm would have blown over. Instead, they've thrown social justice chum in the water. Their critics will redouble their attacks (because it worked the first time), and they've alienated anyone who would stick with them because the stuck to their guns.

Bye, bye, Riot...

Excited for the possibility of Starflight 3. Will probably buy it on the day it is released. But I won't Kickstart it (and I've kickstarted many games). Fig is cancer.

A motion to dismiss is solely about procedure, not merit. So reading anything into this at all is pointless. CIG could only win by filing it, there is literally nothing to lose. Anything GRANTED is positive, anything DENIED is neutral. This isn't about who is right, this is about whether it's even possible Crytek is right.

Totally incorrect. A motion to dismiss can be upheld based on the judge's finding that there is no basis in law or there is not enough evidence (based on the limited amount presented in the initial hearing) to support a finding in the favor of the plaintiff if the case were brought to trial. The judge will assume that all the facts presented by the plaintiff are true, and if it would not be enough to find for them, the motion to dismiss will be granted.

By refusing to dismiss, the judge has found that, if the plaintiff's facts are established at trial, there is a substantial likelihood that the plaintiff will prevail. So you can read into this that the judge is saying that, if what Crytek claims happened actually happened, then the case may favor them. The key is what facts are established at trial to determine this.

This game (like the first) is nothing but outrage bait. It depends on people getting upset, flooding the press with denouncements, and then influencing curious people to buy it. Just ignore it and it'll go away...

Ima wait on reviews, but I must admit to being interested. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen flavor is pretty cool, so long as it carries over to the actual play and doesn't devolve into a simple shooter.

Sees story on pedophiles in the BBC - It's a good thing the Brits are finally getting their house in order. Thank God they can put a stop to this stuff!

Sees story on Asian rape gangs - Well, finally the impulse to cover this up is breaking and justice is being served. And we know this is a criminal issue, not an ethnic one. Let's no tar those who don't deserve it.

Sees U.K. Sales Charts - Britain is lost. Might as well sink the island, because there's no hope for them.
