  1. Description - Crash to desktop when using map to exit Neketaka by sea from Periki's Overlook. Crash occured when the character reached the end of the map of Neketaka. Reproducible? No, tried to reproduce but no crash occurred.
  2. Holy crap, congrats dude! I tried Trial of Iron on PotD and got wiped with a full party pretty early on lol .
  3. Some are. Some are awesome. And then there's Rapelay. Hehe I've never played that game, never going to play that game lol. That said, you got me curious on what the actual rape rate was in Japan, because it seems like they have a higher acceptance of rape in their media than we American do. Interestingly enough, the rape rate in Japan is 1 per every 100K people, while in the US, it's 27.3 for every 100K people. So despite having much more rape portrayed in their media, Japan has 27 times less rapes than the US does. Strike one against rape culture theory I guess lol.
  4. My problem with the FF videos (and I'm a woman saying this) is that she has openly admitted that she hasn't played all of the games she reviews. I would agree with you completely if she were doing game reviews. The trope videos, as I understand them, are trying to identify recurring patterns over a large number of games. What makes you think she is upset? She is doing cultural criticism - looking at games to find patterns and pointing them out. If anything, it would be better to hire people who had never seen the games to objectively look for examples of the tropes:
  5. Gonna be honest, I don't see what's "wrong" about people wanting to protect artists against being bullied into changing things. I don't agree with everything that people on the "anti-SJW" side of the argument say, but I do agree with the general idea that bullying or shaming someone into changing something that you find offensive is messed up.
  6. Yeah sure, but did you read what Obsidian changed the joke to? It basically mocked the person complaining how horrible it was. Personally, I think it was a brilliant move . Cool, I haven't seen it. I think this person is pretty pathetic. If these are the kinds of things that get her outraged in life then she must have a pretty sweet life. Getting mad about a bloody limerick in a fictional game in a fictional universe is really the best thing to get pissed about right? All these Wars and bankers sucking the economy dry are just pathetic in comparison to a LIMERICK. RIGHT? /S Yea

  8. Makes sense to me! Every time I hear something ludicrous like Apple being based in Ireland, I know there's some shady crap going on there, and you expressed what that crap is pretty well . It seems like it all comes down to the conundrum that the people with the wealth make the rules, and they're not going to make rules that will cost them...which just leads to more wealth inequality. Also, I did some more research into the wage gap, this is a pretty good video on it:
  9. I don't know if the tweet in the OP was real, but if it was, SJW's would not care about it. "Save the children" is a conservative argument, and no one in gaming gives a crap about them . SJWs care about women, marginalized groups, and identity politics. Not violence, you're getting your authoritarians mixed up .
  10. I don't have a huge amount of knowledge on the subject, but I definitely don't disagree with you about the modern day wealth distribution problem. But at least to me, it seems like this kind of thing happens regardless of what government system there is. People will find a way to corrupt it. They will exploit tax loopholes, they will buy off watchdog agencies, etc. etc. Honestly, I don't really know what to do about it, it's a problem that has basically always existed. And every solution I can conceive of seems worse than the problem. IIRC, Communism was supposed to be a poten
  11. No, Capitalism - by definition - is a system of free market enterprise based on impartial competition. You're thinking of Cronyism. Oh? In that case, capitalism doesn't exist, and never has. Capitalism, much like socialism, communism, or any other governmental system, is subject to corruption. I don't think you can ever implement a governmental system that is not corruptible. The best you can do (IMO) is have a system that provides the most freedom and security for the people, while having the highest resistance to corruption. Personally, I prefer capitalism over socialism
  12. I have. Their explanations aren't that strong IMO. A relatively small part of the gap can be explained by things like childbirth. The major cause though is that professions where women are in the majority are lower-paid than professions requiring a similar level of skill and/or study where men are in the majority. Construction workers are paid more than nurses, for example, and nursing is every bit as demanding as construction work. Erm, according to Google construction worker average salary is ~$35K, and a nurse's average salary is ~$66K. Regardless though, I get your poin, I mean
  13. This wage gap thing is always something that people bring up, but I really think it's a misleading statistic. This article explains why far better than I can. http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2013/08/gender_pay_gap_the_familiar_line_that_women_make_77_cents_to_every_man_s.html The way I see it, men and women are just different. They have different challenges, and even different inclinations. These differences manifest in certain ways, one of which I feel leads to the wage gap.
  14. Yes, I am, and it was a mistake to propose the thought experiment to start with. This is a complex issue and can't really be illustrated with anecdotal evidence. It needs systemic analysis, and such an analysis would be a pretty big undertaking. And I'm actually a little bummed that Sarkeesian chose not to do that systemic analysis with the resources made available to her, but instead did a quite a lot of cherry-picking when making her case. Her argument would have been much stronger if she had done otherwise. Does it matter if some female NPC's are submissive? Of course not. It does, howe
