Listen up faggot, if you take joy from something an you are not a gray blob of nothing, then imagine your hobby, point of intrest or whatever being shat at. And about the whole thing with "you should fight corruption in other things", shitlord, you go do that. We pick our own fights, you fucking prick.
#18 - anon (10/31/2014) [-]
I'm against corruption in general, but sometimes we need to take baby steps. That's just how it is.
Not to mention, at this point, gaming is basically all I have left. When they're trying to push their agenda into THIS, TOO, what else will I have?

You mean to say there are millions out there who would like to be idolized, have the lives of kings, and be above the law. Just by acting, singing or entertaining. Instead of devoting their lives on a field working towards the betterment of humanity just die in obscurity with just a few people remembering who they were and what they accomplished, like most scientist do?
Holy shit dude! you just blew my mind. I feel so bad for those spoor singers, actors, and entertainers who threw their future away trying to win the modern-aristocracy lottery and are now pretty much the dead weight of humanity.
Its a real tragedy.

When reviews are bought and sold- monetarily, through favors, or through connections- that impacts the whole of the industry and what will and will not get made. The indie market is, to an extent, safer from this than others, and there will always be someone out there who is willing to tell the industry to go fuck itself, but this severely restricts the budget and awareness available, and even they can be ruined or greenlit on the word of an influential magazine or writer.
This, of course, is why Zoe Quinn's alleged actions revolving around her game "Depression Quest" was the spark that lit the powder keg. As to why we're still going on about this, it's because it's still a problem, and how the seeming majority of journalists' have handled this issue has not eased tensions in the slightest.

Wouldn't things like E3 and Gamespot/IGN have vastly more influence than stupid shit like Kotaku and whatnot? I haven't once gone to Kotaku for information on a game. Whenever I search for reviews/information it's always either popular youtubers, Gamespot/IGN, or just the game's dedicated webpage itself that comes up. I still don't understand how pissy little sites like the ones being argued about can have any sort of recognisable impact.
#54 - subejio (09/26/2014) [-]
Even those aware of the possibility for skewed facts and want to compare sources will generally compare between multiple known sites, and the big names have a great deal of awareness. Comparing stories is a good habit to be in, of course, but it's useless when the big namers are ALL SAYING THE SAME THING, because they've all been bought (again, monetarily, through favors, through connections, or through bias).
Worse, when the small guys DO break the mold and give a different viewpoint, they have to get over the initial rejection by readers who are less inclined to believe the small guy because they're perceived as less reliable. That is why such a stance is being taken against corruption in games journalism.
I agree that Gamespot/IGN have a great deal of influence on their own, but E3 is a press-only event. The public is not allowed to attend, and can only get their E3 news second-hand, filtered through whatever site they visit. The journalists writing about the games will already be biased toward them, having just gone through a multi-day expo of booth babes, free handouts, and empty promises. It is extremely rare that a NEGATIVE review comes out of E3, and all of this falls back to my points above.

Actually these people are saying the same thing partly because they all agreed to say the same thing before hand. I was shocked myself. Someone should get this to the front page but I'm not good enough of a poster to do that.

No. It's a hobby for some, a passion for others, a career for others still.
People are upset because others are trying to tell them what they enjoy. What they SHOULD enjoy.
The fact that we care about something others see as so minute doesn't change the fact that we're invested in this hobby, passion, career.
And you shouldn't shame people over it.

It was a sick burn because it A.) Effectively countered Romney's attempt at saying Obama was weak. B.) Flipped it on Romney by insinuating his talking point was not only incorrect but derivative of an outdated mentality on warfare. and C.) It was a smooth instant reply that seemed almost hand crafted to discredit Governor Romney's point.
#50 - angelusprimus (09/25/2014) [-]
No, we have evolved beyond use of battleships (last decomissioned in 1996) and huge amounts of relatively smaller ships who's main weapons were rifled cannons, like in ww1.
Instead of muskets we have assault rifles, so we no longer need a large battle lines, we have skirmish groups. Instead of horses we have tanks, APCs and helicopters.
Instead of a huge navy filled with small ships each with relatively small amount of power, we have fewer ships each more powerful then entire navies in 1917. Carriers, nuclear submarines and guided missile destroyers changed the nature of naval war, just like better rifles and transportation changed the ground war.
#36 - theruinedsage (09/25/2014) [-]
If you can't understand how the role of a navy has changed during a hundred years of political and technological progress/change, you should probably shut up instead of yapping your mouth.
#47 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
That doesn't change the fact that we don't want a small navy. The sizes of the military can be judged many different ways. My guess is that Romney was referring to budget and personnel.
So sure, we don't need as many $7B Aircraft Carriers as we need $3M (1906) Dreadnaughts, but we do still need the ~7000 people to crew each one, and the resources to produce and maintain them. Which you can't do with a "small" navy.
Now, whether we NEED a big military is a different discussion. But that would have nothing to do with technology and everything to do with the political climate.
The point is, when talking about the size of a military branch, technology is irrelevant. Having a big army in the 1800s and having a big army now means different things. That doesn't mean that a small army is better than a big one.

Dude, this isn't civ. It's not like we have nuclear subs and they're rocking triremes. Yeah, one of our subs could take a whole 1917 fleet. But guess about how many other modern subs it can take? Im guessing the number is somewhere around 1(±1). Which means if it DOES come to that, yeah, the bigger navy with the most subs will probably win.
And all the funding to develop and install and maintain those automated systems cost money. Money they gave to the navy. Increasing the navy budget and size.
Come on guys, this isn't crazy.
#67 - bigredthunder (09/25/2014) [-]
First off Romney was explicitly talking about number of ships not funding. Secondly, there has only been 5 naval "battles" since 2000 and during all of those only 3 ships were sunk. Massive naval battles with huge fleets slugging it out is never going to happen again. What we need now is a streamlined quick response navy that can assist ground units more effectively. This means a smaller navy. Fact is we simply don't need a huge ass navy and having one would be horrific waste of money that could be put to better use in other areas.
#71 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
And we know it's never going to happen again how? WW1 was called "The war to end all wars". I'm sure they thought everything was going to be fine after that too. WW2 showed us that all it takes is one charismatic crazy to start a big ass fight. I can think of several crazies in positions of power RIGHT NOW.
And if we're scattered all over the globe like the dumbass world police we're trying to be, we WILL need more ships to support the troops all over the damn planet. Best way to have a quick response is to be in a lot of places at once. Smaller ships maybe, but more of them in strategic places to support troops. We have less warships than countries we have troops in right now.
#51 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
Yeah, there are instances of technology being very important to victories, but there are also cases where it counted for jack shit (Isandlwana anyone?), but that's not the point.
We don't have a navy for any unruly natives anymore. And the nuke was a military project funded by military money. We wouldn't have been able to develop it without the large wartime infrastructure and funding we had. One might call that a big military.
We have large a large military because there's a chance some crazy is gonna start a conventional war, which we haven't REALLY seen in decades (although Gulf War 2 counts, it was kinda short). And in a conventional war, excepting some CRAZY technological advantage, the larger military with the most resources and best logistics (all of which cost money that you're using on the military) has the advantage.
And holy shit, how did this get so off topic. I'm not even agreeing with Romney that we need a big navy. Im just saying the presidents analogy was shit.

Yes let's vote for the assistant of the Virtual boy 2.0.
Livingston is the only worthwhile person to vote for since he's one of the few with credentials to bother with. Yoshida maybe, but I think Microsoft boosted the PS4 sales more than any action taken by Sony.
Pewdiepie is only being propped up because you really don't have to convince anyone to, they just will out of pure fanboyism which is basically what we want to make sure Anita doesn't have a chance. Considering the fact that their can be hordes of SJW's and white knights who will blindly vote for her, I just don't think asking people to vote out of pure basis of merit and self-worth in the gaming community is going to cut it.
