  1. Movie/TV recommendations

    Hmm, I definitely didn't read it sarcastically at the time, but now I wonder. You're not wrong that it would've been in character. But I can't say without watching it again haha.
  2. Movie/TV recommendations

    Did you like that the lesbian turned straight by Riddick was literally named Doll? (Okay it was actual Dahl I'm pretty sure but still) I like the first two quite a bit - for different reasons obviously. The third being a remake of the first but not as good will always leave a sour taste in my mouth, but I will admit I enjoyed most of it. Also, DOLL. I should play the game one day... There's an anime?? I bet it's awful.

    Yeah it's not great when they try to be super serious. Not, like, awful, either (most of the time), but they're at their best when gags galore, and merely mediocre on average when not.
  4. Yeah I adjust it all the time for dark rooms and it goes pretty dark. Dark enough for me, anyway. Warning: auto brightness thing doesn't work for shit. It's literally never changed brightness on its own for me. Lame! But it's as easy as holding the home button for a second to open up a quick access to the brightness setting, so. Easy.

    It was a good call to the series. Hopefully they learn from the mistakes they made for the next campaign, instead of doubling down.
  6. Same. I'm actually annoyed, for the first time in many years, that games aren't coming to My Console. It's just such a smooth system. D:
  7. Fucking seriously. I don't like Besties at all. I gave Polygon Show one episode but was bored... I'll probably give it another since everyone seems to like it, but I dunno. I remember 8-4 being even longer than GB's stuff and I didn't like it, but that was literally years ago. I really should give VGHD a chance. Crate and Crowbar, I want to like, but honestly I think I'm about to drop it. I dunno about video games anymore. I think they're dead??
  8. No Man's Sky

    wait holy shit really multiplayer?! that I did NOT expect re "fixing" the game, they went on record long ago that updates would change the focus of the game over time, in ways that wild make the game feel different whether or not you agree with such a strategy is obviously up to you, but it's not some reaction to shit fucks... it is at least consistent with their messaging!
  9. Masculinity

    I dunno, I second guess myself all the time like that. "can it really be that bad? do people just want to fight? are we all turning into a bunch of babies?" I ignore that voice because if someone tells me they're hurt by something, I should listen to them, give them the benefit of the doubt. I know what it's like when people don't listen to me expressing hurt... in this case, I'll never have all the information, and I don't need it, but the volume of alleged incidents lead me to believe that he actually fucked up royally - his own admittance of guilt now just cements it as doubly true, without wiggle room or maybe this is just more softboyin' what do I know edit: and now I'm hearing some of this shit was with underage girls so I've lost all willingness to give him another chance oops oops oops
  10. Masculinity

    it reads as genuine to me and I hope it is it also reads as a bit ignorant (I don't know specifics, but it sounds like some of the allegations are much more intense than "flirting"), but I know from personal experience (albeit not with this sort of thing) that it's sometimes very hard to recognize how extreme your own behavior is it remains to be seen if it actually is genuine it also seems unlikely I'll ever find out, because I have a feeling this will mean he's never a public figure again, but I guess we'll see...

    Dealing with things like this for a company of significant size takes a lot of time. You don't just fire someone without going through the proper process. This is even more true when the employer is a giant multi-national(?) corporation.
  12. Masculinity

    The perception now is still the same, just with different contexts.
  13. Artifact - The Dota Card Game

    haha! Artifact is definitely the worst name. >->

    Nah it's fine, Crystal Skull is the classic example of people being mad at New.
  15. Forum theme woes

    It feels way less busy on mobile so I kinda like it. >_>
  16. Artifact - The Dota Card Game

    It's rare for me to interested in card games, unless exceptional (or unless they have a superb single player campaign - Hands of Fate 2 get at me!!!), so... Cool, but probably don't care much? That said, Duelyst is fucking rad. I wish I had people locally to play Ashes with me. So I'll give it a shot, but... neat for people who are into this sort of thing!!
  17. I Had A Random Thought...

    Lol that's a fun question. My inclination is to say no but only because civ lets you save scum. Hmmm.
  18. DOTA 2

    Re: alch/tinker hate...Huskar for me. ): remove him from the game straight out. Please!!!
  19. DOTA 2

  20. DOTA 2

  21. The McElroy Family of Products

    Whatever I think it's fucked up to insist there's no connection but I'm not going to fight about it. Carry on.

    No? It sucks and it's shitty for a lot of people, including, of course, anyone victimized by Nick, intentionally or otherwise. Including his close friends who seem/ed unaware. Including his fans - people like me - who, yes feel legitimately let down and hurt because I (perhaps unfairly) expected better from him as a result of his association with people I don't just expect better from, but see it all the time. I won't take part in any name dragging of any individual other than the one because Nick Robinson doesn't deserve my silence, not in this and not right now. This is shit, and it has happened before and it will happen again with someone else I like. Such is this miserable stained existence we lead. Taking about it helps me for sure deal with the reality of the whole thing. And I know I'm not the only one. Taking about it as a community also helps me to become stronger and better at supporting those who were victimized. Can't imagine I'm the only one here, either. Some missteps in "the discourse" (where did that happen here by the way) don't make any of the above suddenly moot. I'm also very happy and proud that Griffin stood up and said something. I'm also very sad for him.
