  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Good Multi-person Let's Play series of games. on the General Discussion board

    Two Best Friends are the best YouTube LPers there are right now, IMO. Retsupurae are good but they do a very old-school type of Let's Play (as in, not actually playing) so I think they're sort of ente...

    It baffles me that this argument is simultaneously arguing about "artists shouldn't be given a pass just because it's expressing a message they want to express" (which I think is a misrepresentation o...

    At some point I was literally blocked by Brianna Wu in the aftermath of something I said in response to someone else about her blog. Like, she literally had to be pro-actively looking for something to...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Hotline Miami 2 Effectively Banned in Australia. on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number board

    The arguments that violent media leads to desensitization and facilitation of violent acts flies in the face of all empirical evidence we have on the subject, and for that matter, so does the argument...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic When was the last time a game became your new favourite?. on the General Discussion board

    @slag: Playing 1 is the best way to appreciate 2 because the sequel is such a categorical improvement. I can't think of anything about it that isn't better. It looks better, it plays better, the magi...

    I played Suikoden 2 for the first time in 2009 and absolutely fell in love.

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic My life in Eorzea 002: Checking in. on the Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn board

    The PS4 version addresses both of those issues, and I’ve stuck with my mouse and keyboard since upgrading. FFXIV’s gamepad controls are about as good as they could possibly be, but the nature and comp...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Xbox One Dropping Price to $349 Again. on the Xbox One board

    Again I think this proves that the American market is more loyal to price than to brand. Good on them, though. Maybe this will get Sony to step up their game.

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Hotline Miami 2 Effectively Banned in Australia. on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number board

    I'm also disturbed by the amount of people who say "rape is a serious thing to be handled with care" and thereby implicitly stating gun violence is somehow not serious or doesn't affect peoples lives ...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Hotline Miami 2 Effectively Banned in Australia. on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number board

    I guess I just don't understand the "but it's unnecessary!" argument. You're effectively arguing that rape shouldn't be in any stories ever, unless it's made by the "right people." It's a silly line o...

    @cornbredx: A lot of what I love about SG-1 is the biggest reason why DS9 is my favorite Trek; the world where that show begins and where that show ends feels so dramatically different. SG-1 starts i...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Help Me Start Watching Star Trek. on the Off-Topic board

    I honestly don't really like TNG that much (I love Star Trek but in retrospect I find a lot of TNG cringeworthy), but for a newbie Season 2 or 3 of TNG are the only good places to start.
