Re: I just don't get it

Video game gameplay videos* (there's a phrase that sounds full of redundancies) that have a picture-in-picture of the gamer's face.

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Here's a completely incoherent bit of nonsense that was published in the Opinion section of the NY Times. The author starts by positing that we're going to have a post-scarcity economy in the future, then says that the only reason we have scarcity is capitalism, then says that the obvious way forwa...

Keanu in cyberpunk 2077 doesn't make me more excited about the game bc that initial game play demo was not too hot. I am reserving judgements and a lot can happen in the next nine months.

Re: Video Games!

I'm on Steam as Hammerlocke and literally everyone thinks it's because of Sir Hammerlocke in BL2. The origins of it predate the first BL and is esoteric so I just say yes sir hammerlocke. I do like BL2. It is tedious but for some reason in a way that allowed me to play through. Unusual for me. I th...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

OK, yes. Makes sense; the 'other-ing' component of the incels' dysfunction makes them worse. Like, murderers vs. suicides. In some cases, literally. This is something I've been pondering WRT mass public shootings. They're hugely self-destructive acts, often ending with suicide-by-cop or straight su...

I would agree that for many it flows right past them and their beliefs remain generally unchanged. However, with those who are already receptive to it, it can sharpen their views in a fanatical way that makes them a bit of a monster to deal with once their on the outside and pushing their ideas on a...

Also notice how in the council scene the dialog went straight from "we've had enough of your words Tyrion" and Tyrion agrees that he sucks, and then *immediately* segues, with no eliding words that indicate why he should get the floor after everyone agreed his prior efforts had been futile, into hi...
