The key phrase here is “a little vindicated”. It remains to be seen whether private servers were popular because of a genuine widespread demand for Vanilla WoW (and thus WoW Classic will have staying power), or because of private server benefits (free to play, xp boosts, etc.). However, given his reasoning, it’s…
Hopefully somewhere, J. Allen Brack is watching this play out and feeling a little vindicated.
this attacker is apparently “known to the police for orchestrating similar incidents in the past.”
Agreed 100%. People focus on Jar Jar and Kid Anakin in TPM as somehow uniquely awful when so much of AOTC is focused around the romance subplot, which is so listless and completely devoid of any chemistry that it is just painful for me to watch.
Lady Stoneheart twist ending.
As much as the past 2 years of political chaos has sucked, there’s a certain schadenfreude in watching Trump’s staggering mediocrity give equally mediocre young men just enough rope to hang themselves.
“Come on. How wrong does something have to be for a Christian, pro-family organization and a radical feminist organization to oppose it together?”

Makes sense. Unless the resulting articles actually pulled in a proportionally greater number of page views, it was probably viewed by the new owners as a time and money sink for people who could otherwise be churning out more articles. Otherwise, you’re just doing it for the prestige, which is a pointless endeavor…
“Is my own butthole keto?”
while some felt that the full-team resurrection was too much of a game-changer, others loved it for its big-moment potential
I think you need to read your own study, because it doesn’t support the conclusions you’re trying to draw.
I’m not talking about his record in the sense of being an asshole: I’m talking about things like his dumb trade wars and useless tax cuts that are not making life for the average American better, and in some cases making things far worse for them.
Because Trump essentially ran on being a political outsider and not being burdened with the typical political baggage of voting for ‘bad laws’ and such. Now he’s got a record that he will have to live down, and it sucks for the most part.
Yeah I’m annoyed that I have to wait an extra 6 months to play BL3, but watching these “regulation is bad” internet glibertarians lose their minds over the consequences of unrestricted capitalism is a nice consolation prize.
Biden is basically the non-asshole mirror image of Trump, in the sense that he appeals to old white people who remember The Way America Used To Be™, but in a clueless “everyone used to be nice to each other ☹” sense rather than in an actively malicious “*those* people used to be inferior to me” way.
To add to the point in your second paragraph: I have never played an actual Fire Emblem game and still enjoyed the hell out of Fire Emblem Warriors. So if the gameplay is good and the characters are strong enough to stand on their own, not being familiar with the series isn’t necessarily a problem.
But it’s a game developed in America by an American company, and given the long history of mainstream white culture ““““borrowing”””” from black people, it seems particularly egregious at this point.
