@truthtellah I agree with you, it's certainly okay for someone to take this stance. The only point where I feel it crosses a line is when they shame other people for not taking the same stance as them (as a certain brother whose about to look very stupid is currently doing).

Most art is a product you can buy just like any other consumer product on the market. Just like I don't support companies that act or do things I don't condone of or find morally ambiguous, I'm not gonna support an artist that acts in such a manner neither. I would think that was just common sense, but I guess not..

I couldn't think of a different way to phrase the question, but I'm not attempting to make a distinction between consumer products and art. I suppose what I meant by the question is "Would you spend money on something you liked, even if you knew that money was going towards someone/something you don't like." I don't really think it's a matter of common sense.

I thought you phrased the question just fine. My answer is exactly the same, and in my world, it's most definitely a matter of common sense. Would I give my money to someone or something that find morally repugnant? No, I would not.

Let's not say it's morally repugnant then, we'll put it in less extreme terms. If you found out Jeff donated money to a political candidate you didn't like, would you cancel your membership and stop supporting GB? If it's common sense not to give your money to things you disagree with, then surely you would?

@koolaid: I sure hope you're right, cause then I can tell my brother how dumb he is.

Pancakes are really cheap.

This is just a list of the games I've beat so far. There are maybe 4 that I'm in the process of beating aside from these. Then there will be my annual winter break cram session where I beat as many games as I can.

  • Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Sim City
  • DMC
  • Tomb Raider
  • Injustice
  • The Last of Us
  • Gone Home
  • Pikmin 3
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  • GTA 5
  • Diablo 3 (Console Version)
  • Pokemon Y

I played a lot of older games this year. Did some good Bucket List work.

@perfectlizardwizard: That's fucking awesome. You got pretty lucky if it was only egg 524, aren't the odds a little over 1/1000 with the masuda method? I always meant to breed a shiny Torchic this way, but I've never had the patience. Did reset over and over again for about a week to get a Shiny Rayquaza when I was like 14 though.

Where is the option for "Currently in the process of building a PC?" Only parts left are ram and motherboard! =D

I failed the written portion.

Looking at Mew has reminded me that I ultimately like the more simplistic Generation 1 designs more than I do the more recent ones.

Mario. Will probably wait until the payday after that to get Zelda since I don't need two new games at once.
