if it stops one kid from dying, being maimed, or suffering PTSD in the service of the US army....it was worth it.

Hey, if today’s military is too thin-skinned to handle Twitch trolls, they’re not going to be able to handle real combat.

This wasn’t an esports team of suicidal vets streaming it was the US Army’s twitch channel. Served this country is a weak excuse for people giving the military shit for two endless wars and military occupation across the globe. I don’t think being part of the military makes you a good person or free from critique and Read more

The streamers chose to act as a liasons to a nation’s military via propaganda targeted at young people—up to and including minors--while also partaking in erasing valid points brought up regarding said military’s actions on foreign soil in the services of oligarchs. Read more

Spoiler, but no and that’s his point. All those things are claims people made about the game before have played it. Abby is a fairly muscular female in the game, so of course by internet logic, she must actually be a MtF trans person.

I'd say Untitled Goose Game made the most cultural impact though. Like, it may not be the flashiest or deepest experience of 2019, but *everybody* and their mom played it. I don't think any game that year had anywhere near the same level of public consciousness behind it.

You can kind of lead into it with a nice “ano.” So “ano, sumimasen” would be the equivalent of “umm, excuse me?” in English. It can make you sound more apologetic about imposing on someone. Read more

It’d be impressive if PAX West took their time machine to the future, since PAX booted them in July, and El Paso was in August.
