sry but as long as being lesbian isn't the norm (which will never happen) it's kinda okay to point it out at least to me
User avatar #101 - strobler (07/05/2015) [-]
Really doesn't look like just a normal case of pointing out. More like: "wow my grandpa is cool but listen, listen! i'm a lesbian." The story is probably made up for this reason.

what the fuck is your problem?

>>#18

You act like them MENTIONING it is like flaunting it.
What, you can be gay but you can't talk about it with shit heads like you getting mad about it?
#108 - manollette (07/05/2015) [-]
My problem is that this is basically the equivalent of me incorporating my being straight in every conversation I have, regardless of the topic. Do I do that? Does ANYBODY do that? No. Because A) it doesn't make fucking sense, and B) it's rude to make every conversation about you.

#63 - aximil (07/04/2015) [-]
No, but in this case it's flaunting it. There is literally no need to mention they were lesbian a SECOND time. That's the issue. Not that they mentioned it.

"he made my wife and i (i'm a woman) a banner" That right there makes sense because it's leading up to this. "when i was pregnant" BAM! That first one explains this, otherwise we'd be confused as shit. But then "my son has two moms" after we've already established that they're a lesbian couple has literally no relevance to anything that was said. It would have been exactly the same as if it started at "there was a "special guy in your life" day at his school" and we would have known exactly why because as I said earlier, the very first sentence established that this is a lesbian couple which wouldn't have a male parent to bring to the Father's Day thing.
User avatar #112 - YllekNayr (07/06/2015) [-]
She reiterated it because it was relevant to the story.
There is literally nothing wrong with reminding your readers of something that has been previously established, if it becomes relevant again and you want to make sure they understand the context that requires them to have that knowledge.
Honestly, you act like there's some quota that they're allowed to mention it. Nobody would give a flying fuck if this was a post where some guy used the phrase "my girlfriend" 4 times.
User avatar #114 - aximil (07/06/2015) [-]
Unless the reader of that post has the attention span of a half-dead gerbil, there is no reason at all to remind the reader of that.
User avatar #115 - YllekNayr (07/06/2015) [-]
Redundant or not, there's absolutely no reason to get so buttmad over it. It's not going out of her way to flaunt it, because it's relevant to the story. If you all got equally mad over all redundancies, you'd have a point, but I'm pretty sure you don't.
User avatar #116 - aximil (07/06/2015) [-]
Say it a second time is not relevant to the story. It was already established. Everyone that read it already knew that fact.
User avatar #117 - YllekNayr (07/06/2015) [-]
It is relevant to that bullet.
It may be redundant, but it IS relevant.
#15 - gameofpwned (07/04/2015) [-]
It's pretty relevant in this instance.

She mentions she has a wife, and then says that she was pregnant, so it makes sense to clarify that she's a lesbian.

She talks about the grandpa going to her son's school for Fathers Day event instead of a father... so it makes sense to clarify that she's a lesbian.
User avatar #12 - hargleblarg (07/04/2015) [-]
The stereotype is that old people are almost universally homophobic, so it's kind of understandable why it's mentioned.

I mean shit if you heard half the things my grandfather says (although granted he tries to make everything funny.

Example:
Him: "I just don't get science"
Me: "Well it's all about learning new ways to advance as a species"
Him: "But why?"
Me: "Because we want to explore the stars and colonise other planets"
Him: "But what about things like the big collision thing in Switzerland?"
Me: "You mean the Hadron Collider?"
Him: "Yes! I just don't get it, what's it for?!"
Me: "It's to figure out how the universe strated"
Him: "But WHY?"
Me: "To find out about particles we don't know much about"
Him: "BUT WILL IT STOP THE BLOODY IMMIGRANTS?!"

Nope, my grandad is just painfully sarcastic all the time. I visit every Thursday and this is the kind of thing that goes on (that and me fixing whatever problem he's having on his simulator games).

Unfortunately I don't carry a video camera with me everywhere I go so I can't prove this happened, but I swear on my life it did and I was nearly crying with laughter.

He probably still won't care about gaming journalism, as the journalists (the particularly bad ones, at least) will be the ones pushing forth and promoting the politically correct walking simulators. Not the people who play games to have fun playing games.
#136 - anon (06/21/2015) [-]
Except they've been "winning" to the public for a good while and nothing has changed at all. All that happened was Ubisoft saying FarCry 4 was gonna have social justice, which turned out to be a massive load of shit. To be honest, games have stayed relatively okay, seeing as many weren't outright sexist to begin with, and the worst thing that happened was Target taking down GTA5, which means nothing from a store that makes so little from it's games sales and it's common sense they would ditch something they barely sell to keep people.

The attitude works fine.
User avatar #84 - epicalania (06/20/2015) [-]
If it does then good for it.
Because gamers will buy what they want, they will vote with their wallets.
And the industry will follow the swings of the voters.
A few companies will make adjustments and develop games to try to get the politically correct idiots and the retarded femnazis as part of their playerbase but it won't work so those adjustments/games will either stop or send the company out of business.
If the industry did ever end up dominated with any particular type of game then that's the type of game that the vast (>75%) want.
If the industry ONLY did 'politically correct walking simulators' then that's the ONLY game the players want, because ifa small amount of the players wanted a different game (lets say 2.5% of gamers wanted a politically correct sitting simulator) then at least one company will make it because they will have access to 100% of the playerbase for that game, they won't even need to make it a good game and they'd still have a guarantee that 80+% of the people who want it would buy it because it's THE ONLY OPTION.
When mobile games came out everyone who wanted that experience got them, I know people who bought new phones because it came with game/could play games.
When/if full VR games come out the first few games to get released will get MASSIVE amounts of profit, and the reason for that is that people will want to play a full VR game.
Lets imagine the first game is SAO (without the stuck-in-a-game shit) because we have knowledge on it, so we don't have to design a new game for this argument.
The people who like hunting sims will just stay of the first floor and hunt, in full VR
the social gamers will hang out in bars and play cards or something, in full VR
the crafting gamers will become blacksmiiths and craftsmen, in full VR
the rpg players will play their rpg, but everyone else will still want to play it because they want to try full VR.
If the industry only sold one type of game, the first company to sell another would get massive amounts of profit, and the companies know this, that's why many companies try to have varience between games.
Like Blizzard, yes they still have a specific targeted playerbase but they made hearthstone, a card game, to have more variety in their game, this does a few things:
- Expands the games their playerbase has
- Expands their playerbase to include people who don't play their other games
- Adds variety to their games so that if they playerbase everychanges it's wants majorly they have security in their variety

If you have any questions/comments/discussion go right ahead, but if you're overly rude and don't consider others points then don't expect a reply
User avatar #165 - denniswilles (06/21/2015) [-]
Well.. thanks for answering the question that was directed towards me, I would have said the same thing!

But do you really think VR is going to be that big of a hit? True VR requires a big, open space in order to feel real.. and most gamers probably can't afford that. Unless we trick it somehow to make our movement feel real. Until then, it will be just our hands or just the headset with a controller. People tend to forget this has been done before with the Virtual Boy and failed horribly within a few months. Of course it's more advanced now but I'll still wait to see how it goes before buying it.
User avatar #172 - epicalania (06/21/2015) [-]
I'm pretty sure true VR will be a real thing at some point in the future, it won't be soon and it won't be cheap but it will exist.
As I know it, there are two ways to produce full VR:
1: VR headset, motion detection sensors, a machine that keeps you in the same place. Theoretically easiest but I believe this won't be the one we end up with as it would require output in ways such as having the machine which keeps you centered alter it's structure to form things like stairs and obstacles.
2: Direct connect to our brains, which is theoretically possible, potentially cheaper and requires far less space. Use motor neuron signals to control your character, respond with sensory nerve signals (feel of touch, temperature)
#1 is the easiest to develop (aside from the centering maching, which could be possible with haptic holography ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=3seTlvQtIgc )
#2 is better as it allows the processing power of the brain to create the controller, only the signals must be processed and the computer would isolate the primary signals and recreate the rest using software we already have (such as tracking movement on four points on the finger (tip, base, 2 joints) and assuming all other points will roughly align with a line drawn between the two relevant points (a point at the base of my fingernail will be roughly along a line drawn between the tip of my finger and my second knuckle))
User avatar #182 - thefates (06/21/2015) [-]
I feel like full-dive VR (the name for direct connection) could become a real possiblity following the introduction of the mind controlled limbs and such in to the consumer market. This being, of course, because of their similar working format.

I'm stoked to be in the generation that is, at the very least, going to acquire robotic limbs.
User avatar #185 - epicalania (06/22/2015) [-]
It's the same principle for output.
Except rather then controlling servo motors it controls the character.

Input is harder but we're learning more and more about the brain. We have specialised cameras that hi-jack the optic nerve and replace the signal (for blind people, swap the nonworking signal with a signal that can at least let them depict shapes) as the technology grows it'll become easier and easier to synthetically apply stimuli. Sound we can just gloss over by using regular headsets.
User avatar #88 - commoncrunch (06/20/2015) [-]
Goodness, that's one impeccably sound wall of text you've made there.

All I can say is that yes, voting with your wallet is the way to go, but the people with those wallets, there's always and ever that risk, that chance they could be played like puppets and purchase certain games and mainly those certain games.

For example, when Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare came out, it sold like fucking hotcakes, man. But today, though, there hasn't been much change with the franchise. Yeah, the story/setting changes slightly with each release, but it's nearly the exact same mechanics in every game since MW1: basic "realistic" multiplayer FPS with a tacked-on singleplayer campaign about some white dude dealing with evil foreigners. It worked for a couple of games, and hell, when Black Ops came out, I was pleasantly surprised, but sooner or later, the franchise and its story will get old.

What I wanna see, personally, is something in the CoD franchise that looks like it was handled by a japanese company, preferably MarvelousAQL. That's all I wanted to say.

But yes, you are correct.
User avatar #174 - epicalania (06/21/2015) [-]
I get like that sometimes.
I'll do the full version and a tl;dr version for you.

Point 1:
Full: people do get tricked but most virtual storefronts won't remove games from them unless, either they are made to or it is taking space they'd rather use elsewhere. And as long as people buy those games then the companies who own the stores will know that the type of game is still good for sale and the market will swing back towards what it truly wants.
tl;dr: people can be tricked but it won't last

point 2:
full: Call of Duty 3 sold because it's what the playerbase for it wanted, maybe they didn't want a new experience? Maybe they wanted a small update to their current experience, a chance to start the leaderboards again maybe? Play a new campaign? It worked for a couple of games and if it truly stops being what it's playerbase wants then CoD will be made into something different, or scrapped and a new game will replace it. You're right, the franchise WILL get old at some point, and when that point comes the market will move on.
tl;dr: CoD worked because it's what it's players want. it will get replaced one day but it will be replaced when it's not what the players want, or when a larger playerbase gets a game made for it that replaces CoD, which wont happen if CoD is still popular to it's players

Point 3:
full: that sounds pretty good, get enough people to agree with you and eventually the market will listen
tl;dr: that sounds pretty good.

And people want those updates. If they don't want it any more, they won't buy them. Because surprise: your opinion is not the only one that exists in the world and you're not the sole metric through which things are measured. The system works, for the majority.

I still don't really know what the fuck gamergate is, and at this point I'm a little too afraid to ask.
User avatar #100 - thebestpieever (06/21/2015) [-]
Gamergate is a bunch of retards who took ten years to realise Kotaku is shit. They also don't know what words mean, but then again, neither does Kotaku or anyone else they supposedly fight (bitch at and trash talk, mainly).

I just see a lot of women with colored hair yelling about women being sexualised.

Something about Bayonetta 2?
User avatar #102 - thebestpieever (06/21/2015) [-]
Pay them zero mind. If you want to go down a hole of full retardation where nobody has any sense then either side of Gamergate is a ticket to that hell. Otherwise steer cleer. Regardless of whose opinion you might share, they are all retards and choose to express those opinions as retards with arguments to make a 4 year old roll their eyes. Just avoid both sides of the conversation entirely and play some games.

Sounds good to me, I don't understand why someone would want to spend their whole time being pissed about games instead of playing them.

Think of it as two people at a table having a debate, except surrounded by monkeys fucking each other and shitting everywhere. It's a couple people with decent points being drowned out by both the opposition and their own side, and eventually both sides will stop.

There's a hell of a ton of achievements they've done since August 2014.
To sum it up, GG is a consumer revolt against game journalism biased towards either

praising a developer/publisher they should be wary/critical of (it's their fucking job to review/critique games, getting buddy-buddy with devs is quite the conflict of interest),

or

pushing a heavily politically correct agenda like it's some kind of miracle drug with it's actually the death of creativity and imagination.

Honestly, just browse the reddit board for it, /r/KotakuInAction . You'll get one side of it, at least. I should add, avoid /r/GamerGhazi . They pretty much talk shit about Gamergate and do nothing else.

kek one of the most politically correct companies in the industry is one of the most succesful and praised (bioware)

and one of the most politically incorrect is one of the most stagnant and trite (techland)

someday you people will understand just being nice to people doesn't make good things bad or bad things good, but it's still nice to live in a world where everybody gets their place and gets recognised and treated with dignity

What? I'm not sure what you're arguing here. You just confirmed exactly what he was saying without trying to. Maybe you meant to switch the examples.

In any case, Yes, everybody gets their place based on their games. However, many people wouldn't even make it on to the scene if it weren't for their group and their "support". Political correctness is NOT the same thing as being nice to people. Political correctness is an effort to not OFFEND anyone. The problem with this idea is that "offense" is subjective. What offends one person may not offend anyone else. This leads to the propagation of terms and sayings simply to ensure no one is offended (often times only to offend people more at the benefit of the few who requested it i.e. "African American" annoying people who talk to black people in anywhere other than America and even some in America). In the end you gain completely nothing. The population becomes emotionally unstable, of course, because they don't know how to cope. Thus all you end up gaining from the entire "politically correct" mess is not gratitude but more anger as people will inevitably find something else that makes them angry. We shouldn't be trying to baby the public or ourselves.
People need to understand that someone can be perfectly polite and still offend someone.

Oh, I've never really paid attention to gaming journalism because I've always seen games I like get bad scores so I just stopped caring.

I guess I missed a lot overall.

I should hurry and fix my wording.

*GG is a consumer revolt against fixed/biased game journalism that leans towards either

You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join manolette in the sun.
