How is this gaming related?
She just tweeted that retweet is FAKE. PHONY. FRAUDULENT. Ya’ll are a sorry bunch. You’re just mad at this point eager for some actual wrong-doing on her part.
I missed this part when I first quoted you. While it is antisemitic to say that, there is valid cause to condemn Israel and the Israel lobby. Charges of antisemitism for saying the critique in the wrong tone are weaponized against critics of those oppressive institutions while at the same time, people in the palestinian territories are bombed and kept in an outdoor prison. Antisemitism is real still, there's been shooting at synagogues and growing antisemitic conspiracies that fuel a fascist resurgence but we have to ask who's house is on fire at this current time instead of tone policing. If Argentina got involved in a war, we would not condemn someone as racist for referring to the government of Argentina as Argentinians, we would understand that as metonymy. It is wrong to do that with Jewish people and Israel but people make mistakes in the context of the current human rights travesty that Israel's government is doing to Palestine which makes mispeaking or being offensive in speech a small thing next to bombs and walls, segregated roads, and checkpoints.
I agree with you but no point trying to reason with some of the posters here, it’s like they’re out for blood
I have to say I don’t understand the culture here where if a content creator is viewed as racist, sexist, bigot or whatever, that everyone calls for them to be banned, and then they most likely are. Don’t you think these people need to be talked about MORE than those with whom we share opinions? Is it not more important to see that these sorts of people exist and discuss how and why they got here, he’ll even call them out on their behaviour, rather than just sweeping them under the rug and pretending they don’t exist? That doesn’t help anything. I think it’s important to have discourse about and with people who have these sorts of views rather than just dismissing them
No, if you can prove a child has been sexually abused you don't need the child to press charges. A community full of people who seem developmentally delayed when it comes to social skills being a hot spot for pedophiles doesn't seem all that surprising. It's really really sad for all the good people in that community that have been hurt and the ones seeing something they love being torn apart. Even if it's a headache and not their fault Nintendo PR should give them a hand in cleaning this up and implementing some safety measures for attendees, because it's a terrible look for their games/brand.
Gaming Era? I am sick and tired of reading threads that have absolutely nothing to do with gaming in this part of the forum. I know the guy, but he is not promoting any kind of discussion around videogames. Stop this shit.
I’m going to fully admit that I clicked this thread hoping it included pictures that she took as she was literally falling.
US is tore up from the floor up. Looks like a vagrant used it as a toilet and then moved on.
For Christ' sake. He didn't say anything about Nintendo being "doomed". Fuck. Are you Nintendo fans so brittle and thin-skinned and defensive that your reflex to any criticism is "Nintendoomed"? Did the Wii U era scar you THAT much?
Microsoft always seem to end a generation with nothing.
Oof. Well this is a minefield of a topic, and I know nothing about the people involved, but here's my two cents. On one hand, yeah sexualizing depicted minors is creepy taken at face value. But I think there's some truth to the fact that these aren't real people. You can draw a person and say they're 12 or 20, the intention really doesn't matter, it all comes down to depiction and interpretation. It's fine if that makes you uncomfortable, that's everyone's call to make, but does that make you a pedo or pedo-adjacent? That seems pretty harsh imo, and kind of oblivious to the reality of the situation. Let's not forget that they're fictitious depictions of imaginary people. Bottom line for me is if it's not leading you to sexualize real children, or see children in a sexual light, it shouldn't be seen as a problem. And of course with everything that's within reasonable limits. And on another note, am I crazy for feeling heartwarmed by the notion of women sexualizing shotas? Men have been getting off to lolis for decades, time for some sexual equality in this fandom!
Hope this whore gets put behind bars.
Great review by Joe, as always. Echoed a lot of my same sentiments about the game's story.
there is way much more typical Italian voices there than apu did. I don't think you know mario well if you say that "its me mario" the only thing. there are also a lot of other lines he said that are even worse, much more as apu did. did you also seen the cartoons and the movie? i have to say it's ironic how people are drawing a different line for ones that are even worse. i believe many are moving the line way to far. i can look it up for you and proof it, but I think you need to step back and rethink this. This is what is wrong, its good example of what i mean. they should instead help the real racisme and the poor. but there is way more going wrong than racisme only. -racisme and slavery was even worse in Brazil, what I didn't knew before. -gun law is crazy in us and kills way to many people and childeren, this would be my first priority. -hong kong, nobody is doing something about it. -sexism - gays are not accepted on many places - same for transgender - Puttin that kill doctors by throwing them out the window because they tell the truth about covid19. - Mexican border, where US locked up children because the parents are on a run. What happens in Syria and many other countries? That is what is wrong in our world.
For real, especially this one for me I was upset about a video game in a thread that got locked. People in another thread started talking about the locked thread, so I responded with how I felt. Got banned 2 weeks for "Trolling in multiple threads, a long history of trolling". And its like fucking When the post I got banned over was literally me complaining about how "People keep calling me a concern troll because I have criticisms, which is bullshit." I'm also not sure what a "Long history" is when I've never received a warning once before? And what counts as "trolling", is posting a tongue in cheek funny hee hee haw haw even in the same spirit as purposefully being mean and disingenuous? Good moderation absolutely goes beyond policing obviously shitty posts - If they want good discourse it starts with them and how they guide and inform discussion before it gets to a point of what is perceived as ban-worthy.
i didn't miss those, but it seemed food was rationed heavily. 1 Burito a day isn't enough, also yeah i saw the gym but even with proper modern diet and workout she would need more than 3 years to go from flashback to her current muscle mass and very probably steroids too. My head cannon is that she is indeed on roids, but that really isn't a fact since the game never tell you. Also why is no one attacking zarya or other examples in this thread, i feel like it's unfair to just attack people for hating women with muscles just because someone said that abby is kinda unrealistic in the context of the game. also the problem is not that she has defined muscles actually it's her muscles mass, she actually isn't that definedi dont think i have seen any character stronger than abby other than those big mini bosses but they come in both genders anyways
It´s unrealistic without steroids. You can sure look like her but let´s not pretend that Colleen Foster is natural. Abby would need steroids to look like she does as well, especially with only one burrito a day.
Because in the end, most users on Era don't care about these issues, and in case they care, they shut up their mouths because of the erratic and trigger-happy ban policy. Why get involved, when anything outside of the official line of the forum will get you banned.
You need to play more 2d platformers
Lmao this take is hilarious, console war shittery never gets old. R&C are literally the only active Sony franchise that is actually any fun though
Why not, Sony gets to make money and those PC players can have some fun games for once.
It's mostly PS diehards trying to convince themselves that PC isn't the future.
I...read the responses and I don't see flat out lying? The first response doesnt even say much and is him mostly just claiming the were on friendly terms and he wouldn't outright share hentai publicly which has been disputed with discord which I can see why that space would be considered differently in his mind(still wrong). I'm part of discords where my friends share hentai but we would never ever look at it together in the same room, and his second response is about an exact time sharing it in a friendly space, again I feel what he means is he wouldn't just whip out hentai with strangers, he seems to say it was not odd for him to send some to M2K. I can kinda believe him thinking this shit is normal and not realising how much he is affecting everyone else. He was an immature 19 year old who didn't know better and to be honest still completely immature. The Katie stuff is heinous and he admits that, I didn't read a lie unless I missed something. There is murkiness as to when he knew she was underage and what he asked her to do when underage. That's important I think. It's good this is coming out and at this point I think he needs to try and take an active stance against his own fans from attacking people, I don't know how to do that but trying to trace usernames and put bans in discords, twitter or streams or whatever then his fans might be more reserved if they knew he was actively looking to ban people in someway, even if he is pretty much canceled at this point. Other than that I don't know what he can do to hold them back. Now why I say this is not really to defend him or anything, but I do think it's strange this is the top drama right now, when others are accused of much much worse. Acutal rape, stautory rape, apparently keeping vunerable minors as sex slaves and members of the community keeping it close to heart. There is so much fucking worse going on than Zero at the moment unless I've missed a response or something. His worst enemy seems to be himself. I'm interested to know what Jisu has next though, she deserves an apology and not just from Zero but everyone in that house who know this was going on but I don't think Zero is outright lying, I think he's a thicko that didn't realise any of his behaviour was troublesome. He's not a mastermind pulling the strings and his first response shows how stupid he is thinking that 'look we are friendly' was the crux of the issue. My stance does flip a lot though depending on if he knew the age of Katie when asking the ice cube thing. I don't think I gathered that from the screenshots.
Never said it was grey to me. It's cut and dry to me. I just think it's worth discussing since there is, in fact, a cultural difference that should be raised since society and culture dictate morals.
Not gonna lie, it's antagonistic posts like yours that makes me reconsider engaging with people in this forum. "Alright boss". Like what did I say to you that warrants this? Let me ask you, where do you think im going with my posts? Do you think I'm empathetic with predators? Search my post history and find me something where I disagree with the cancellation of nairo and the other pedos. You won't find it because they deserve all of the worst things to happen to them. Man some members here gotta chill out with posts like yours. Because it goes to show that he didn't change. It means that he's actively searching out minors for his self satisfaction. And that makes him a predator. But given his childhood, I truly believe his actions came from a place not out of malice, but of a place of...well, just stupidity. He rose to...Internet fame. Ugh, I hate saying that...it's like Jesus dude, it's fucking internet fame, its...embarrassing. Anyway... anytime someone gets a little notoriety they feel like they're famous and get gassed up and feel untouchable. Now, judging by his look back in the day, and his social awkwardness...I'm going to assume he wasn't popular with the ladies. And the moment he got famous and all of a sudden you have girls actively reaching out to you (with innocent intentions like Katie)...well, the fame got to his head. I was socially awkward with girls growing up. An Asian American child back in the 80s-90s, living in an Italian neighborhood and attending catholic school where I and another Asian American were literally the ONLY Asians in the school and growing up in an era where apparently I knew Kung fu, and all of the female classmates were Italian...well let's just say I had a miserable childhood. First girlfriend at 18, broke up one year later and been single till I was 30. That's when I went to china to met my then GF now wife. In china, something weird happened. Now I was shy and awkward around girls all my life in NY. I was a hoot with my guy friends though, made them laugh like I was the clown of the group. It wasn't until I lived in china for 5 years that I learned that I was actually...charismatic? I guess is the word. Anyway, all of a sudden, I was being approached by ladies left and right, from my cousins friends, to teachers at the arts center where I taught English. Before I met my wife, not gonna lie, I was gassed up. Mind you I was still shy but I quickly made friends with them (never dated, I have a personal code). The point of the story is, having that kind of attention was intoxicating especially if you're someone that had little to no interaction with the opposite sex. What does this have to do with zero? Well, like I said, I can slightly relate to him...except in my case, I didn't hit on little girls. But I understand the effect of being admired. Once again, what he did was fucked up and as someone pointed out to me, very INEXCUSABLE. But it didn't escalate to the point where he met with her or received nude pics. Yes, he asked for them, he even asked for her to masturbate. To my knowLedge, fortunately for him, it never happened. I don't know how else to convey this, but...I'd like to think that people can change for the good. Like...someone that joined a gang and did heinous shit. Or an alcoholic, hell, even a racist. People have the ability to change. Just based off of what little I've seen of him, he SEEMS like a good kid, that's unfortunately had a fucked up childhood, and fucked up history with interacting with girls. Sorry this went on longer than I anticipated...just wanted to express that he fucked up, but as long as he atones for his mistakes, he shouldn't be cancelled. However, this story is still developing. And if more were to be revealed, well, there's nothing more that can be said.
He wasn't even twenty when this happened right? He probably didn't realize that showing porn/hentai to underage kids counts as sexual harassment. He was pretty much a dumb kid himself when this happened. Still creepy regardless. My biggest question is why teenagers keep hanging out and living with 18+ year olds. I get Smash is for kids, but it's very bizarre.
It’s an almost 20 year old tradition of this community. If you don’t want people to make the joke then make sure you’re posting in the right forum.
Peoples extreme attraction to cartoons is definitely creepy as shit but calling someone a pedophile is really a bit much. If she's been caught passing around child porn then thats another thing entirely.
They're cartoons. It's ridiculous to call this pedophilia.
I've posted this image before and got a warning for it but fuck, It's still 100% accurate.
An....interesting cross-section of avatars from posters trying to discredit OP's intentions without engaging with the content of his post:
Honestly I don’t even know why you bothered making that thread the mods are a bunch of fucking cowards and we’re just gonna close it down because that’s easier for them rather than actually dealing with it.
Shouldn't have tried to force a baby game into a competitive fighter, could have avoided all this.
I would note that this has all been the Brawl/Smash 4/Ultimate community. I'm not aware of anything like this surfacing in the Melee community Edit: please stop quoting me. I wasn't trying to start a melee vs ultimate feud. I was only trying to point out that the two scenes are distinct. I have been chastened by the numerous posters calling me a fucking piece of shit. I admit opinion bad. I am chastened.
He should be banned out of support for the woman he was a dick to. He's done nothing to prove his innocence and has instead tried to silence a victim. All this other stuff is nonsense. "He's not giving the story the attention it deserves". Fuck outta here with that shit.
I'm sorry - tell me what's wrong with what he's said, because I don't see wrong with what he said. All he seems to have said is that everyone should be equal, which we should. What's wrong with that?
Nairo is 100% at fault here, he was the adult, he could and SHOULD have stopped this from the start. edit: i deleted the offending comment. sorry.
If it was up to a vote, I'd vote no. And I'm not going to try to justify it. I just wouldn't want my country (tax money after all) to pay them. I would only want to pay them if there was a certainty that it would somehow improve our finances, making it richer, and having our population enjoy higher standards of living in the process.
Okay. The Ottoman Empire ended in 1922. That's recent . Same as the Japanese Empire. Non-European colonialism. They should repay too according to you, correct? Or is there something more to your statements that you are not stating? Like I said where do we stop. Native Indians would wipe out fellow Native tribes in genocidal ways. Do we go that far and have everyone pay everyone even if the lineage doesnt exist anymore? How about Egypt against Rome? I know I am absure about this but this would become neverending.
Nah not really I say to the victor goes the spoils. If they can't defend themselves then tough shit. Same goes for them, China is currently fucking over Africa so, you ain't gonna see any calls for reparations as they strip mine their entire country. It's easy to bully western european countries over stuff like this.
OK, if this principle applies then we should apply it further back. The UK needs to be compensated for: - celtic invasion from Eastern Europe - Roman invasion from Italy - Saxon etc invasions from Germany/Denmark - Irish raiders from well, take a guess. - Pict invasions from Scotland - Viking invasions from Scandinavia, - Norman invasions from France - we need compensation from France for the loss of Normandy Etc etc Then, once all this is sorted out we can discuss the UK's compensation bill to it's former colonies. The central counter argument to this line of reasoning is why should people alive today pay money for acts done 150+ years ago? You'd essentially bankrupt every western country, probably every country actually given every country has at some point done a wrong against another country or people. I am sure the African countries prior to the arrival of Europeans were busy attacking each other, forming empires etc. The only people to benefit from it would be the lawyers and accountants who'd do all the work.
How do you select the countries, that should have compensation of the action of colonialism? On what timeline do we count these countries? What if the nation doesn't exist anymore? What if the demographic of the people have changed in that area? How do you calculate how much any country has to pay to every country they have had a connection with? How would the payment happen? Is this only money or land too? (I do agree completely with the artist and archeological pieces, as long as the nation can provide the security and care to these pieces) Have you considered what these actions would do? Is the target country oppressing minorities, therefore is it ok to support such a regime? Where do you draw the line, if not? Would these regimes let the money go for the people or just hoard those themselves? Have you considered the skyrocketing nationalism and far-right ideas that would happen from this? Or if the nations are even able to support themselves right now? Did you consider the upcoming Great Depression? Agreeing with the title question is like putting Like in Facebook, if you do not have actual vision and plan with this. Otherwise I question peoples agendas over this. It sounds more like a vengeance and not justice. Colonialism was horrible and shit sucked. But if we actually went to do this whole repayment project, the pushback could be so bad that we might as well see the rise of fascism to the whole new highs, then the whole project would be cancelled and everything would be even worse.
Well you can't just have one rule for one and one rule for another. Do you feel strongly about Turkey repaying Europe for the colonialism of the Ottoman Empire?
I mean, the game is portraying bad people. Grand Theft Auto has always been that. Rockstar has shown with Red Dead they create likable, morally ambiguous characters so it's not like this is some oversight. I just don't think murderers and thieves are going to draw the line at being transphobic. It would be a bit more jarring if Michael, a boomer-type horrible man, was just like "Oh sorry, I didn't mean to misgender you." That's not him. You're supposed to go "Jesus, this guy's an asshole." I do think the actual trans NPCs could be represented in the world a bit better but at the same time, this is a world where EVERYONE is portrayed poorly. Cops, citizens, etc etc. They're not really singling any one out.
Well, GTA V is one of the most played games EVER so I think nobody cares. Makes me wonder about criticism on videogames. Is it just a vocal minority that is too fragile for jokes? Or is the majority of the population ignorant? I don't know anymore.
GTA has always been a left leaning satirical game that aims to mock the worst faults of America and American society/culture.
