It's lovely that you're trying to rail against her in this thread, and the moment someone asks what it is she's done to incite the uproar, you refuse to speak up on it.

You shouldn't argue about something you don't understand.

However in this instance I'll give you the benefit of the doubt as the coverage of this situation has hardly been reliable.

Here have a funny.

It focuses a bit too much on the inconsequential bits in an attempt to inject some "humor" for my taste, but just go about 14 minutes in and you'll get the gist of it. I'd post a better video, but there isn't one.

I'd explain it all, but my time here is short and it'd take a good half an hour to adequately explain. Perhaps when I have more time available.

I totally trust the guy who does nothing but make videos about Anita Sarkeesian, Patricia Hernandez, Susan Wilson, and "white knights" tell me it isn't about gender.

I'm against Rorie's pro-puppy CHOMPING agenda. He should be fired because I'm raging against him right now. It's proof he can't DEAL with the community.

I find it amusing that people are complaining about nepotism in the forum of a web site where half the staff got their job because they were high school friends with Jeff.

The hell does Q stand for? And why are they all lumped together? That's dumb. You know what's not dumb? The ballad of Gay Tony. It's a damn fine game/expansion.

I think Q refers to Queer, which is fucking ridiculous considering the word queer means weird/strange/odd. The fact that people in this thread are happy to use that term is fucked up.

I hate to break this to you, but the term queer is very commonly used as a self-descriptive term by quite a few different orientations. If you don't believe me, take a look at the Craigslist personals in San Francisco.

And black people commonly refer to themselves and their friends with the N-word, but that doesn't mean I can use it too does it?


Queer isn't a dirty word...

150 hours later, I'm done with Disgaea. Maybe I should have started my summer backlog with something easier. Since my theme for 2014 is the year of the weeabo, I'm going to start with a show stopper and get unreasonably into FF XIII and XIII-2 (Lightning Returns is on preorder). Besides chocobo afro, I know nothing about these games, so I'm very excited.

Beat both. I love The Witcher, it had the better story but Fallout had better mechanics. If the Witcher had a better leveling and crafting system it would be GotG.

It's not that I did only worthwhile things, I am just hopelessly a console generation (now two) behind. I've been whittling away at the same PS2 backlog for 10 years. How you people finish more than a few games a year I will never know. Question for you: I just bought a used PS3 on ebay and it came with 30 games (a lot of Call of Duty bullshit mixed with jrpgs), what are some hidden gems I should track down to sit on my shelf until I get to them in another 10 years?

This is what I have so far.

Two things:

1) It's Daylight Saving Time. Not Savings.

2) You have it backwards. Daylight Saving Time begins in the spring and ends in the fall. DST is still going on in the US it ended in Europe. You're on Standard Time.

2013 has been one of the best years for hip hop that I can ever remember. People who say "rap sucks now" don't actually listen to rap.

Exactly. Chance the Rapper, Danny Brown, and Ghostface Killah made amazing albums this year.
