    Are women over-represented in video games?

    in Politics Discussion on 03 September 2018

    Over or under representation is not a meaningful goal. High quality or low quality representation is. As someone who has dabbled with writing, it's hard to write good fiction to an exacting politically motivated prompt. "You have to make your cast be proportionate to the population" counts as an exacting politically motivated prompt. Writers should be free to write whatever stories they want...

    Religion is a mental illness

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 September 2018

    Millennials are, on average, conditioned to fear and despise organized religion because it tends towards orthodoxy. And then over the last ten years the secular left has degenerated into orthodoxy complete with antiproductive morality goals (see also: diversity quotas, SJWs, cisgender). So in answer to your question is religion a mental illness. No. It can be used by demagogues to prey on...

    What exactly do you consider to be "SJW agenda" in games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 August 2018

    I don't have a problem with companies taking liberties so long as everyone knows that's what they're doing. I also don't mind female protagonists. Some of my favorite games have female leads...although none of those are younger than the Feminist Frequency stuff, I might add. Parasite Eve is one of my old favorites, and it's 20 years old this year. Aya is a woman, but she's also the rookie who...

    A Nintendo IP Going Mature?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 August 2018

    I don't really need an "M rated" game. You don't need blood or nudity or swearing to entertain me, but you do need to make the content deep and complex. Typically T ratings or lower come with games which don't care. Zelda already has done a clean "Almost Should be M-rated" game; Majora's Mask. It's a cult favorite in the series and I totally think that clean M ratings would be a fantastic...

    Do you believe in God? Why/Why not?

    in General Discussion on 23 August 2018

    LuccaCardoso1 said: Oh, morality can only come from a god? That's not true at all. Take some things into consideration: 1. Morality is not exclusive to humans. Read this article. Other primates were shown to also have a sense of morality, and we don't see them reading the bible or praying, do we? Primates have morality because it helps to reproduce and move on your genes when you don't...

    Do you believe in God? Why/Why not?

    in General Discussion on 23 August 2018

    Yes. If you've studied philosophy, you're probably aware that when you remove God from the equation epistemology and morality break down. A lot of people disregard this because they think they can know things and be personally moral without God, but the shared social framework holding criminal justice and academic discipline breaks down. This is exactly why Postmodernism is a thing and why it...

    In regards to being a open world game - How do you view FINAL FANTASY XV

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 August 2018

    FF XV is not a true open-world game. I encountered numerous invisible walls in my time at the edges of numerous maps. Edges which the world map said I should be able to traverse I was actually not able to cross. This is not to say I didn't enjoy XV, just that the open world aspect is often overstated because XIII was so linear. This aspect certainly needs improvement, and I would totally make...

    President Trump Sides With Russia Against the United States.

    in Politics Discussion on 16 July 2018

    Christopher Steele (an FBI informant) literally leaked false information to the press [i]and then use the resulting articles as primary sources[/i] in an intelligence document. He literally made things up and then came up with a pyramid scheme to make it look like things were properly sourced. This is the kind of excrement which doesn't even fly in middle school book reports. Are you sure...

    Why don't you believe that Trump is a Russian tool?

    in Politics Discussion on 15 July 2018

    Most people who think the Russians somehow altered the elections say they did so by leaking the DNC Emails to Assange. This kind of influence over a foreign election--exposing corruption--is perfectly ethical. Complaining about this is basically whining. I don't think the Russians did this--they would have blackmailed Clinton instead and Clinton would have agreed to do whatever they wanted in a...

    #Walkaway: What is your opinion?

    in Politics Discussion on 15 July 2018

    The Steele Dossier a while back was a [i]strict upgrade to Watergate[/i] and no one in the mainstream is talking about it. Mistaken ideologies almost never kill democracies. Their policies prove to be wrong and people vote to correct them. No, raw abuse of power or the deliberate removal of checks and balances kills democracies. By this metric, Republicans may or may not have done damage to your...

    How much time til FF XV-2?

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 December 2016

    I expect that several of the XIII games were dry runs for XV. The wound mechanic is similar to the normal and danger health bars, dodging was similar to defense in Lightning Returns, etc. Perhaps the logic was that the direct sequels to XIII were safer playtests than diving in with XV, or that they would bide time until the next generation. Or perhaps that Lightning hadn't yet filed a restraining...

    Is Final Fantasy XV a step in the right direction??

    Is Final Fantasy XV a step in the right direction??

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 December 2016

    Is XV a step in the right direction? HELL YES. Is it for everyone? No.   All Final Fantasy games have glaring faults, and XV is no exception, and the stories--no matter how heartfelt--are always a bit wonky. If you can't live with these, I suggest you pass and find yourself a different brand. If you no longer like these things, I suggest you stop buying FF, as it may no longer suit your...

    How would you "improve" the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy?

    in Movies Discussion on 26 September 2015

    The prequels have two problems. The first is that they have deadpan pacing that never speeds up or slows down. It's like looking at a black and white photograph of a rainbow because the pacing doesn't evoke feelings. The second is that after Boba Fett in the original trilogy, Lucas became outright paranoid of people liking villains. You IDIOT. Villains are more important than your heros because...

    So, what are your political views?

    in Politics Discussion on 11 July 2015

    I am libertarian with strong conservative influence, but there are a few issues I'm kinda off the wall on. [b]Healthcare:[/b] Pass a law mandating each state to create a local single-payer system or a referendum saying "no, thank you, that's not for us." Everyone under a single system is a very high-risk situation. More options increases the likelihood of someone doing something clever, and--if...

    WTF! Final Fantasy XV Story Is Not Final Fantasy Versus XIII

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 June 2015

    Hmm. Tabita mentioned XV being "standalone" and changes in the same sentence, almost like those two ideas were made at the same time. I have a theory. Nomura probably originally planned for a Versus-2 and a Versus-3, with an all male first game, all female second, and then a final game to bring all the characters together. The first two games would be kinda like a locker-room, giving players a...

    Pre-E3: Your opinion on CGI trailers

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 May 2015

    It's tempting to say a gameplay trailer is better than CGI, but any kind of trailer can be deceptive. Remember the FF XIII gameplay trailers? Yeah, that looked way more interactive than the game actually turned out to be. And let's not forget Aliens: Colonial Marines, either. Announcing and promoting a game early in production is just a difficult thing to do. A CGI trailer is fine for it (and...

    Do you support Polyamory? Polygamy?

    in Politics Discussion on 26 May 2015

    As far as personal relationships...knock yourself out. Actual marriages, however? Let me be blunt, NO. No, I don't support polyamory for any sort of legal privileges the way marriage does. It's difficult enough to have a marriage last with two people when there's only one relationship to worry about. Three people means three separate relationships, which means the whole affair is three times...
