Commented on Microsoft

From what I’ve seen, they get way more hate than fans. If Microsoft had fans, then Windows Phones would be a little more than 4% of all smart phone users. I only know people who don’t care about them and people who don’t like them because because of their monopoly in the pc space, their shitty business practices, and fiascoes like the Xbox 1 unveiling and its always online drm. In some ways they’re worse than EA because Microsoft has so much pull in the tech space that when they release garbage like Windows 8 or games for windows live, a lot of people have no choice but to deal with it. Don’t like EA? Don’t buy their games. Don’t like Microsoft? You’re still stuck using their stuff to run games and apps like Microsoft Office that are mandatory for work and school

Commented on Creepy White Guys

I read a sociology paper about how Asian women are probably one of the most stereotyped minorities. TV shows and especially advertisements always play them up as exotic, competitive, intelligent, and mysterious

That’s shits also not in the book. It’s told from the point if view of journals and Frankenstein didn’t want anyone to know how he made the creature. From the vague description, it’s sounds like he made the creature from scratch and by hand. It was still horribly ugly, but there was nothing inherently evil about its origin

Whats that thing dressing up like Mako?

Frankenstein was about people who were afraid of a creation of science because they were too ignorant to understand it and too irrational to learn

I swear if they put Snake in this game I will buy a Wii U. I want more dialogs with the Colonel about Nintendo characters. Or put Big Boss this game and dialogs with Paz. “Snake! They’re playing you like a damn fiddle!”

That’s not a letter. Alan saw you not pick up the poop and he was telling you that to your face

“but because of that last sentence you wrote, I now know I was indeed wrong and missing part of the story”

Ohhhhhhhh. Sorry. I’ve argued about this before today with someone who said they’d defend a KKK member’s “freedom of speech”. That combined with other posts lead me to believe a lot people don’t get the full implications of Eich’s “opinion”. To be clear, he donated to support that bill that would repeal California’s legalization of gay marriage.

Apparently you are. Marriage is right heterosexual couples can enjoy and receive legal benefits from. Same sex couples do not get those rights. Therefore, the fact that they lack access to marriage means they have unequal rights. Eich gave money to support a bill that would keep homosexuals in an unequal status

Tell me about it. I’m sick of hearing about his “equal opinion”. Its naive childish logic to think “everyone is right”. His opinion is that sex couples shouldn’t have the same rights as heterosexual couples. That’s not an opinion, that’s discrimination. Maybe he shouldn’t have lost his job for a donation, but his decision infringes upon the rights of others and I don’t think he’s worth defending

Which would be normal because most people’s place on the scale changes over time or even depending on the mood you’re in

It’s ridiculous here. You can’t say anything negative about the Wii U without being bombarded with down votes and attacks from the Nintendo Defense force. It’s why I like talking about video games on the escapist because most people there will shit on Nintendo when Nintendo deserves it but nobody really hates them as a company

Don’t worry bro. It happens to the best of us

Commented on Oculus Rift

You could have said exactly that in a less antagonistic way. “Maybe its not a big deal seeing as Zuckerburg said he only wants to speed up the development of Oculus. The whole point of this investment is because Zuckerburg wants to expand his business ventures, not because he wants Facebook goggles” or something to that affect. Instead you chose to hop in and shit on everyone’s opinion. Its not a one sided argument and as shown by the Carmack vs Iribe statements. You shouldn’t tell people who are emotionally invested in something to stop freaking out over a huge change. And things have changed. This has gone from a community and developer based project to one worth $2 billion

Sorry, but comments where people just say “My opinion is clearly correct because I don’t give a fuck about the thing you care about” bug me

Commented on Too True

I like the fun of figuring out how to fix bugged quests on the console versions of Bethesda games. Breaking the game to make my character more powerful than god adds to the experience. Using the terminal commands on pc feels too easy

Commented on Oculus Rift

We live in a very corporate society where people can’t own anything. Maybe Oculus wouldn’t have set the world on fire but at least it was owned by a small team of people who cared about it and didn’t owe anything to some group of investors who only care about making a profit and not creating innovation

For the record, I was never invested in the Rift nor am I 100% confident that Zuckerberg will fuck anything up. But I do have the powers of empathy to understand why people are upset and to not antagonize people over something they are invested in

Yeah. Just wait until that thing you care about gets fucked up and some ass hat tells you the same thing
