What an amazing, supportive developer.

"You want mods? You want to play around this world and system we created? You want to see this game being supported by other fans throughout the years? Well, FUCK YOU, BUY THIS DLC INSTEAD!"

loltaku:

Almost no outlets covered the obvious scam that was Areal beyond the initial “Look at this Stalker-like game”.
They did not cover the studio’s insane response to questions.
They did not cover the studio claiming Erik Kain’s articles about them were a plot by the chinese to destroy their project.
They did not cover comments on the kickstarter going up by 3000% overnight despite the backers not increasing in any significant amount.
They did not cover the fact that in last few days, when it became obvious the project would not be funded, that several very generous individuals suddenly backed in amounts from 5-10 thousand dollars.
Now that Kickstarter has deemed the project suspicious enough to suspend, they are covering it, and would like you to kindly forget all those other things they didn’t think were important enough to talk about, instead deciding to post about.. I don’t know, memes, or articles intended to make them feel morally superior to their own audience.
Polygon, Kotaku, were not interested in these, even with the very real possibility some of their audience could be backing this scam and unaware of these things.
Polygon and Kotaku aren’t actually interested in journalism.

itll trickle back to them.   If someone on the Onion can get fired for what they said about Quezvhane Wallis…

EA won’t fire her because of the PR shitstorm that would occur.  But then again this is EA, who rarely give a fuck about their bad rep.  So it could go either way.

But EA does care about bad rep, they were extremely butthurt when they won’t worst company in America two years in a row and basically called everyone who voted on them homophobic.

Goku isn’t fucking Asian you fuckers

He’s literally an alien

can you even consider Aang as asian either considering its completely different universem setting?

Could’ve picked a lot better exsamples there.

>Worried about Race Erasure

>Uses the term “PoC” or “X of Color” which is a term coined by white people to describe and group up non-white races as one race

I’m more critical about how you don’t find the word POC as a liberal version of race erasure at all.

Goku is Asian you guys, like really Asian, look at how Asian he is

Another day, another gimmick in a comic book series. Just like Superior Spider-Man, just like whenever Wolverine loses his healing factor or a villain becomes a hero or a superhero gets their secret identity made public.

Give it a couple of months/years and it all goes back to…

My only issue with this is that it just doesn’t make sense to me.
I have no problem with with other genders or races taking up the role of a super hero, that’s fine. Or alternate universes where characters have always been a different gender/race/species. That’s okay too.

The difference here I find is that they’re advertising this as this girl BEING Thor, in the same continuity. There’s a logical disconnect for me as to how this is even possible.

It probably stems from my own personal misunderstanding of the long history of Thor, after all my knowledge pretty much stems from the movies as I’ve never been a huge fan of the character to follow. 

But, the way I understand it, and the way it’s presented in said movies, is that Thor IS Thor. It’s not a costume, or a collection of powers, it’s a born identity. This would be a problem to me if ANYONE else became thor, regardless of gender. I’ve looked into wikipedia and the like and I’m not finding anything about Thor being a role, Thor is just a guy, son of odin.

It’d be like a girl becoming peter parker, instead of spider-man, e.g. the collection of powers and abilities associated with him.

I wouldn’t even care about any of this if someone would just explain to me how this even possible. Everywhere you go you either see people whining about thor being a grill, or people whining about people whining about thor being a grill.

I just want to know how the hell this even works.
Can someone explain this to me?

Only those worthy can weild Mjolnir. Thor is going to do something that makes him un-worthy.

Anyone considered worthy can pick up the hammer and have Thor’s powers, even an alien cyborg called Beta Ray Bill.

So Thor does some bad shit and loses the hammer and someone else gets the hammer, and that someone just happens to be a woman.

The only problem is she being called Thor, really. When Beta Ray picked up the hammer he didn’t suddenly started getting called Thor, it’s not a title, it’s his name.

A noble goal in life.

No idea if this quote is accurate, but the sentiment is fun.

Knowing CDProjekt is was probably edited to remove some of the stuff he said. CDPR are heroes of the industry.

Their legacy and reputation makes me wish I enjoyed The Witcher 2 more. Maybe I’m just a filthy casual after all…

The acclaim the Witcher series gets isn’t so much that they’re amazing games (they’re pretty good in my opinion though), it’s that they’re solid releases with a lot of care and attention put into every part of it, whether or not any given part actually ends up being worth anything. Actual Gameplay in the witcher games are hit and miss, so don’t feel like too big of a pleb if you didn’t like them. It’s the appreciating of the art of crafting a videogame and the attention to detail that makes the Witcher games what they are.

The Witcher games are impressive for putting to shame most AAA games while being made with a fraction of their budget and personel and by a bunch of no names who never worked on videogames before.

So this is a thirteen year old kid saying that comedians should be allowed to make jokes about #yesallwomen, and several adults gang up on him, doxx him, and threaten to hurt him. This was already on TiA, but I feel like tumblr needs it shoved in their faces how toxic their movement can be.
