The “historical accuracy” argument only seems to pop up when there are women or minority characters in game, or there is a lack of NAzi symbols in a game. Weird how that works.

You are hilariously missing the point. The remake is billing itself as a complete game, worth $60, and a standalone adventure. Except it isn’t. It is a bloated first quarter of a story. It has some narrative bits, but it isn’t a real story arc and things don’t really make sense. And then it is over. Yes, in the OG, Read more

This game is *shockingly* newbie unfriendly. Exactly like you said: Newbies would know nothing about Sephiroth by the end of the game other than “Dressed in black, big sword, killed Cloud’s mom,” have no clue who Zack is or even his relation to anyone, they see Cait Sith for like 5 seconds but for all they know that’s Read more

I always end up catching ANOTHER loach and it is ALWAYS looking at me with reproach.

Except that it was stated that we would be able to play all PS4 and PSVR title on the PS5, and this really makes it seem like they are already working on creating an “out” for when not every game is available. Read more

it’s always going to baffle me why guns and violence and outright gore are hunky-dory for the wider audience, but implied sex continues to be off-limits. Read more

It’s a fun show, and to be honest, has a relatively high level of quality. That being said, it’s always going to baffle me why guns and violence and outright gore are hunky-dory for the wider audience, but implied sex continues to be off-limits.

Everything you’re saying is true. But the people who need to hear it just fuuuuuuuuuuuucking refuse. I’ve tried all kinds of approaches to talking w/ other commenters here about gender or race-bias in gaming: listening first; keeping things hyper-rational and citing data; letting things get emotional and appealing to Read more

Gaming got popular, and a subset of people who built their identity around gaming being non-popular are hostile of anything that gives it wider appeal. Read more

After taking part in the Hajj (where he ate, slept, prayed next to White men), Malcolm X said the problem isn’t the White man. The problem is the White man’s system, i.e. capitalism (Malcom X’s solution was Islam. Maybe. I’ll let you be the judge of that). Read more

Once again, “when you are accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression” has been proved true. Keep it coming, old white men.

Because rebels and oppressors aren’t the same... An act of violence committed by an oppressed group is not the same as an act of violence committed by an oppressor. That’s how power asymmetry works. A slave killing their master is not the same thing as a master killing a slave. There are good ideas and bad ideas.

It’s so depressing to see another one of my trans sisters pass away. She was an amazing gamer and a brave, beautiful woman. I know there are ignorant people in the comment section of this post, but their uneducated ramblings cannot tarnish her legacy and accomplishments. She has inspired transgamers everywhere. We're Read more

Just a heads up: If you get shitty or mean in these comments I’ll remove them. Go be an asshole somewhere else.

Why do we need to go back in time to rehash a bad game yet all the while attempting to make it “not so bad” 10 years later? Read more

People in general like to play someone who represents them. As white people we have been so blessed with this it’s harder to see the issue.

I still say pricing is Nintendo’s biggest issue. I refuse to buy Zelda Breath of the Wild for $79.99 Canadian which is its full price. Like come on Nintendo.  I think they’re just leaving sales on the table now with their pricing scheme.
