I want to see this same amount of outrage the next time we hear about the new Dragon Quest.

Fuck off mate, the first doll was in the same location every time and after dying 5 plus times in a row and being forced to watch an unskippable cutscene I looked it up, restarted the game, and they spawned where the guide said. Only time in the game I used a walkthrough because playing where's Waldo in broad day daylight was neither scary or tense. It 100% glitched
I'm at a loss for words. Insomniac has been one of my favorite video game developers throughout the years and I've always looked up to them as this insanely talented but also exemplary developer. Their anti-crunch policies etc. Everything is just in shambles right now. This shit to be fixed. I don't expect you to respond, nor am I trying to cast some sort of blame on you, so please don't take it as such. But this needs to be addressed. Insomniac can and needs to do better than this.
That’s a really edgy way to say someone was acting like a jerk.
Assulting people, saying vile things or even fake fainting isn't on the same level of weirdness as what I saw in that video personally. Like a whole store was carrying on as normal around this person. If your reaction to anything is to act like this you have real problems. And if this was calculated?! If she did this whole act on purpose?!?! Somehow thinking that it would draw sympathy. That's even more absurd behaviour. Like I said, normal racist white people don't act like that. If we just cropped the video so you just saw this racist white lady's actions and didn't know what she was reacting to, you would think something very strange was happening. I don't think we would point at this and go "ah, just a typical racist white woman". And none of that means that she isn't a racist white woman. Amy Cooper is acting nothing like this other racist white woman. Their behaviour is, in my opinion, planets away from each other. This racist white woman isn't calling the cops or demanding to speak to the manager. That's the racist white woman playbook, instead you have all this weird other shit. This is a white woman in a store filled with other white women, acting in a way that gets basically none of their sympathy (I think maybe one woman says something). That's not normal to me. The victim should be the focus, and it seems like overall it is here. I'm glad that Ijema was able to get some donations to help her out, she more that deserves it after how she was treated. Ultimately, I believe that we can have the nuance of recognising the erratic nature of the attackers behaviour (if it seems that way to you) while still putting victims first and helping them out. Like I said in another post I don't like the idea of bad faith whiteness defining the way I want to talk about an issue or incident. The fact that some white people are going to try and push the fact that this racist white woman is just "mentally ill" as a way of absolving her, doesn't mean that if I personally think something is mentally weird with her that I won't point that out. That's just a side observation to me, not something that defines this. The only reason I'm talking about it now is because people are currently arguing about it.
It’s the modern Sonic characters and games that kicked off “and his shitty friends.” That’s the point when Sonic Team left behind the beautiful and stylish aesthetic and design of the Genesis games and went with the cringe shit we got starting with Adventure. But I will say one thing- the dumb designs of modern Sonic somehow appeal to a large age group, roughly between 13-25, socially challenged and also heavily into anime stuff. That’s when the series lost me. Mania picked me back up but I feel like Sonic is two completely different franchises now- classic and modern. As a Sonic fan there’s nothing redeeming to me about the modern series, especially the shitty friends.
That they ended. And the hours of entertainment the infighting between fans gave me.
Not in that video you posted. He says slurs are bad but there's value in distinguishing between people with different intent which is almost tautologically true. Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes calling a jew a kike vs NBA player Meyers Leonard doing the same during a CoD match is different, but both are bad. Unless your take on slurs is utterly one-dimensional (like "the effect is the only thing that matters"), you have to agree with this. Intent matters and you know it's true: A black person calling another black the n-word is no big deal, because the intent is made obvious by the fact that the person is unlikely to be racist against themself. The effect (being offended, being discriminated against, etc.) is obviously heavily affected by the assumed intent. If you have a different reading of that video, feel free to share your interpretation.
You're fighting a losing battle when the OP can't detect the sarcasm in Asmongold's tweet regarding him being a racist everywhere lol.
Gonna just crosspost what I said about him in one of the other recent threads: Re: Asmongold, never heard of or watched this guy before this past week but I've checked out parts of several of his streams the last few days, and he genuinely seems to be positive on the game and enjoying it like anyone else. And honestly, I don't see him as toxic in any way either, nor supporting toxicity. If anything I've seen the opposite from him, very vocally supporting vaccinations, talking about not making fun of autistic people (and basically saying he himself is autistic), and generally batting down hate, including racism, he does happen to see in his chat room. Clearly all that doesn't excuse any comments he may have made in the past, and like I said don't know the guy personally nor have I followed him regularly, but frankly I'd want to see context to some of these things that people in this topic are trying to use to slander him... Because based on what I've seen in the few streams I've watched, he just doesn't seem like that type of guy. Now, he clearly doesn't shy away from controversial topics, but I think that is more just he doesn't give a shit/isn't scared to talk about something rather than actually being malicious or hateful in any way whatsoever. From what I've seen, If he's asked to talk about something, he also typically goes on about it for 10 - 20 minutes. So I am guessing any short clips trying to frame him up for something are lacking some serious context. Right now he seems like a very positive addition to the FFXIV community that will surely only better the game given the greater attention he will bring to it. Generally I agree with this post too.
He's actually making fun of the dumb tweet he's replying to that asked if he is racist only on pictograph, or everywhere. Its a ludicrous thing to ask someone when its not even him in that image, but someone impersonating him on the app. I can't believe I even have to explain this to someone. Half of the US voted for Trump in 2016. If you still consider each and every single one of those people a racist, today in 2021 - then I don't know what to say. That is a borderline insanity mindset to have. No he didn't. Did you even watch the video yourself? He literally says in the video it is not okay to use racial slurs in any situation. If you want to start pulling up videos, how about these? He owns an org with nmplol. They have been best friends for over 10 years. Asmongold isn't a racist.
"Rampant sexism, racism or ableism" Really? How do you expect the average person to take you seriously if you hit the hyperbole this hard. Dude has shitty opinions at times, which is not reflected in the fast majority of his content. Nor is there any evidence that he has screwed anyone over in person.Nah, I just live in a world where I'd like to interact with more people than within my tiny bubble. So do you for example shy away from Zepla too who seems like a decent person, but she interacts with asmongold as well. Despite what you think, I really doubt there hundreds and thousands of streamers that are the paragon of social consciousness and have good content. Even if you think they are "Good" don't be too surprised when they get "exposed" as well.
Asmon has some shitty takes but I wouldn't call him racist considering he's banned people saying racist trash in his chat and even got somebody banned in WoW for having a racist name. and has talked about racism and how its a huge issue in wow He's been pretty consistent on not letting any racism fly in his community. Also the whole "he's a trump supporter" take is like not telling the whole story. Yes he voted trump in 2016, but the amount of criticism of trump in 2019/2020 was quite large.a number of the stuff in the OP asmongold has addressed/clarified. I'm not saying that absolves him of all fault but its not like it was swept under the rug.
I love asmon. Some of this is distasteful.
Going through someone's past in the attempt to cancel them feeds into the narrative of the right about cancel culture. Maybe it's better to wait until he does something stupid again, then call him out for it. *Edited for clarity*
Paging *ignored user* from *ignored thread* Seriously though, this is unfortunately just where we are with this terminology: completely toxic labels.
I hope at least one of his grandchildren gets bullied too
This guy sucks but lol at I’m not trying to cancel him but here are a ton of reasons why he should be canceled.
Wait a second. I have literally been racially abused by mentally ill white women too. Please do not lecture me on what racism is. Nor do you need to be a mental health professional to see mental health issues. I too have history here. So thank you, but no thank you. My opinion is not invalid because you are a mod.
Time to stop downplaying the mental health crisis, America.
ok im clearly gonna back off this topic. I never once stepped in for the specific reason of trying to say she shouldn't be punished for her behavior. I guess im alone on this one. People can be fucked up and you can personally have an opinion that you hope they get their mental issues diagnosed by someone so that their lives get better. I never said she should get a pass on her actions. Not once. Shouldn't we all want this type of absurd behavior to get help? Her racism her anger her crying hysterically. I just hope she sees someone for help. When I watch that video I see a woman who has issues and needs help.
A hardback first edition copy of The Philosophers Stone sold for more than a first edition Don Quixote on Sotheby's the other day.
Nah he’s always like that. It’s only mostly sad.
One developer is good, the other is bad.
Celebrating an unecessary $10 price increase. This board never stops surprising in how people will shill for their favorite companies.
Feinstein obviously has dementia though and this has been noted by extremely credible sources more than a few times. Confusing, inconsistent statements from her are sad, but not a surprise.
All this furry fuckery ruined anthromorphic animals. :(
Sony can do no wrong on these forums. All past mistakes are forgotten. Wonder whatever happened to being able to use an nvme drive and PlayStation 5?
Public officials: "Go get the vaccine and we can all get back to normal" Also public officials: "LOL sike your vaccine is worthless."
It's amazing how backwards Japan can be with things like this sometimes.
That was just his application for the Raiders
Fuck no, I won't reconsider it. They're literally siding with an oppressive dictatorship state that has been abusing and torturing their people for years. They're either stupid, or hypocrites.I've thought about it. See above.
Can platonic friendship still exist or are LGBT people trying to get rid of that?
Just add a mode where you are invincible and everything dies in one hit. Everyone who disagrees with me is a toxic gatekeeper.
Well I guess that’s part of the reason, why there is no good games coming out of China.
I never expected posters on ERA to spit on the views of the BLM movement and embrace the views of the Proud Boys, but here we are. The simple fact is that the United States wants to overthrow the Cuban government in order to install their own puppet government. They want to return to the days where US interests owned 75% of the arable land, 50% of the sugar industry, and 90% of the electric and transportation industry. Plus significant ownership over other industries such as mining, tobacco, timber and others. It is part of a broader program for American sumpremcy, which nearly ties into white supremacy, as it has historically. That is why you see BLM oppose US backed regime change and why the Proud Boys support it. You can have issues with the Cuban government. It does have many, many issues. BUT, so long as the United States is constantly breathing down their neck, the existing Cuban government is the only thing standing in the way of Cuba becoming a US colony again. That is why it is most important to fight for the US to stop intervening in Cuba before attempting to fight against the Cuban government. Those posters who ignore this fact are basically carrying water for US imperialism, and stating that they do not give a shit if Cuba becomes a US colony again so long as the current government is ousted.
It always strikes me as odd what is and isn't okay for people to openly talk about after the passage of time. Like this forum doesn't even try to obscure that
So it turns out in DMC5 Vergil was the cause of all the trouble due to splitting himself into Urizen and V with Yamato. As Urizen he killed an entire city basically and spent the game thrashing around Dante, Nero, Trish, and Lady. Once he returns as Vergil he immediately tries to fight Dante and doesn't seem to even care or acknowledge the chaos he did as Urizen. Yet despite all this at the end of the game Dante seems willing to patch things up with Vergil, while Nero doesn't acknowledge him as a father, he stills acknowledges him as family. He basically gets off with a slap on the wrist. By the end of the game he and Dante have reformed their brotherly bond.
I’m good. Bugger off
I just think too much time is spent on the heels and not on the condition of her cheesy feet.
Aren't these early "reviews" just paid lies?
So.... like...play a different game? Maybe come to terms with the fact that the world doesn't revolve around you or them? IDK, but this line of reasoning is genuinely futile. I can think of a thousand better things to get upset about.
then don’t play such game if it giving you such a hard time. If something is not for you why force it.
What a stupid reason to make a thread. I can still go and play the original BF right now FFS.
Oh, touched a nerve. I'll refrain from pointing out the spelling error. Anyway, does anyone else wonder if those scenes that were in the trailer but not in the show were meant to be red herrings all along, or that at some point they really were gonna show what Loki winning in New York was gonna look like, even as just a fantasy?
