  1. I Had a Random Thought (About Video Games)

    Starting an impromptu Dark Souls 2 fight club in a short while. Yes, I said fight club.

  3. Hatred: The Most Despicable Game of All Time?

    Ok, fuck this. What infuriates me right now is some responses in this thread (second page mainly, disgusting) aren't taking this game's central mechanical conceit as being super fucking problematic and worth questioning. Despite the apolitical, text-less stance the devs say their game embraces, it still communicates extreme fascist ideology and imagery, specially within the context of white supremacy. The game's whole mechanical conceit is terrorism against innocents. Interesting how the trailer lavishly displays the murder of women and people of color. BUT NAAAH, it's totally dumb and silly, u guyz, there's worse stuff out there, it's something a teen would make, just another Hotline Miami, whatever, lol. No fuck that, and fuck you. This IS as despicable as other horrendous trash like Rapeplay and Ethnic Cleansing. It IS already completely fucking bad and trash as it is right now. This isn't a motherfucking contest. This shouldn't be a fucking debate. If they added points to killing people in this game, that would only reinforce the already heavy incentivization to perpetrate in-game terrorism. It'd be a solely dumb and purely infantile if it wasn't so confident and extremist in its fascist gameplay. The violent and immature work of a teenage dork doesn't compare to the work of a bunch of grown ass Neo-Nazi white dudes with the experience and passion for making a game suited to their regressive political thoughts. The fact this trash exists should be taken SERIOUSLY. Media/art affects people, this isn't big news. The fact that "lol voices are so silly lol" and "omg so this is just hotline miami then?" dilutes the blatant fact that this is problematic, irresponsible, and regressive trash made by fascists for fascists. It dilutes the fact that this has the power to change the minds of people and rally them to believe in horrendous shit. Games like Postal and the GTA series are a bunch of conservative/libertarian satirical garbage, but at the very least killing innocents is an option in those games and is presented in ridiculous and cartoonish ways. Hatred's goal is to give players the tools to create power fantasies a skin-head would only dream of within realistic settings and contexts. It's goal is for you to commit terrorism. You are FORCED to do that, it's your only means of mechanical expression. We should be condemning this garbage and not dismiss it as yet another silly excessively violent game. Discussions on this game should start and end with "this is reprehensible garbage, let's not waste our time and energy on it." If you literally think there should be a debate on that or if there is shit worth discussing on that statement, please reflect on your position or go fuck yourself, please. I don't even understand why this trash even has its own thread when we could discuss it in the Random Thoughts About Games thread where it can eventually be buried with things actually worth talking, debating and sharing. Giving it it's own unique space of discussion fucking irks the shit out of me, specially with a title that suggests this game and others like it should be compared and contrasted to see which one is worse. Fuck that, they are all bad, this is not a fucking contest. Btw, if you're going to respond to this post, please take your time and think about what you're going to say, because if you couldn't tell, I'm not fucking light on bullshit like this. If you think I'm being too hyperbolic, too angry, and/or taking this game too seriously, I'm sorry but fuck you (not sorry) and rethink on what you're telling me or what you're going to say to me. I don't have time for fucking diplomatic discussions on trash that affects minorities such as myself and others. Remember, this game is made by Neo-Nazi fascists and reinforces their ideology. The consequences it could have on others is serious and is worth condemning for. Condemn it till it stays buried under the fucking ground. That is all. EDIT: Read and/or re-read what Bjorn linked. Also, I've decided that won't bother answering to anyone or posting more shit in this thread. I've said what I wanted to say, and I don't want to waste my time on this garbage anymore. Have fun with what I wrote or w/e, I'm not walking into this thread again.
  4. Movie/TV recommendations

    Before ya'll dudes stick to your guns on your reading of this movie, maybe you should first read something from the perspective that's being affected the most by this.
  5. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    Alien: Isolation is the Far Cry 2 of video games. And I fucking love it.
  6. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    Same! The fact that reviews from big game websites are becoming less homogeneous is fantastic imo. More varied opinions, not varied fact sheets. With that said, Kevin VanOrd's review summed up my worries of what the game was gunna be: a very fillery, mostly due to the fact you die alot and repeat shit. For me personally, the fillery shit is bad, but the fact that you'll probably die over and over is a plus for me. That said, it looks like most deaths seem to be somewhat cheap. This is something I always feel is a problem specific to heavily systemic games. The more systems and interactions your game has, specially when it comes to enemy AI, the harder it is to not let the curtains open and reveal the tricks behind those systems. What's worse is that this kind of shit will not happen to everyone, because of its systemic nature. Which makes reviews/critiques/views on the game very odd, since not everyone might experience teleporting Alien deaths. Unless of course, the Alien is super fucking fast for that gif to be justified.

  13. A Super Fun Quiz for everyone!

    Nah, I know this games' soundtrack by heart. You could've just put the first 3 seconds and I'd know it was this song and this game. (Also, I was thinking of putting this same song in my own game music quiz, so it's fresh in memory even more)
  14. A Super Fun Quiz for everyone!

    I guess I've only played one game from 2000, and that game is #19 (and is one of my most favorite games ever).
  16. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    Btw, I'm writing a long ass thing about this after this "exchange" I had with Mike. This has been bugging me for weeks now, and as much as I do not want to fucking write it (all of this Gamer Gate shit has drained me emotionally and mentally), I need to do it to keep my sanity, lol. So look out for that? *fart* EDIT: By the way, I'd appreciate it if anyone wants to help me edit this shit, since I think it's kinda long and I'll probably do fuck ups. If anyone wants to help, I'd extremely appreciate it and I'll share what I have so far as I'm writing it. And obviously, credit you for helping me out.

  19. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

    I think lately, I've started to hate Kojima more and more as time goes by, for very few people stand up and call out his gross ass bullshit. He gets away with it because he's the "grand auteur" and "great visionary". Reminder: He made a game that featured the rape of two minors at the hands of a Saturday morning cartoon character called Skullface. This scene was handled with the deftness only a fucking teenager who thinks he's edgy can handle it. And like, this caused very little discussion, and very little crticism. Naw, let's talk about how Ground Zeroes is like 30 minutes of gameplay, guys, it's just a demo, guys, so expensive, why you are doing this to us, Kojima? Oh no wait, but the stealth is cool, so it's a Good Video Game™. All Hail Kojima. Fucking nerds.

    Oh god I feel so bad for not guessing #27. Goddammit.
  21. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

    That doesn't justify anything. Raiden being naked was Kojima's way to emasculate Raiden and make fun of him. Vamp being very flamboyant is how Kojima thinks queer people act, and most of the women being sexualized in the MGS games is because Kojima is an objectifying sexist. He's skeezy when it comes to his women characters. I mean, fucking Policenauts had options where you could smell, ogle, and fondle women characters. MGS Integral had a cut feature where you'd fucking photograph women like zoo animals, and the more points you get, the closer you can get to them. Which of course, would make its return in MGS4 as an actual feature. Yes, he is a perv, but not towards all his characters. And tbh, I couldn't give 100 fucks what narrative context he gives to why he sexualizes his women characters, he still obviously does it out of his own perviness and in Quiet's case, cuz he wants more of that hot cosplay action.
