There are definitely some in-jokes you might not get, but generally speaking, i give fuck all about the Borderlands canon/history and I enjoyed Tales plenty.

I can tell you that Thumper, Darkest Dungeon, Firewatch, Hitman, and Uncharted 4 are all games available on PS4 that I'll probably cape for pretty hard. Overcooked and Inside are both v v good as well.

(Overwatch and Doom as well, though those seem well covered in this thread)

There are two maps I feel like I can play Widowmaker effectively on. Hanamura and Route 66. Anywhere else, I don't feel like I have a good handle on how to use her well.

Since the owner of this thread has said they're done, I'm gonna lock this now.

@grapesoda: This is a point I will concede. I probably overestimated how many people would be aware of the same loathsome figures that I am. Out of context, yeah, probably looked weird.

That said, I also had no desire to tag in Forney's account or point people toward him, for reasons that should be obvious.

I'd also like to think that if you do follow me, either on here or on twitter, you'd know me well enough by now to know I wouldn't just pick a random person and make fun of them completely out of the blue.

@sravankb: I can be a petty person and, in general, I try to keep that sort of thing in check. I do not do that when it comes to figures like this. Call it a failing. That's fine. I'll even admit it was a cheapshot. That's fine. I am fine with taking cheapshots at the literal worst people.

@grapesoda: If making fun of literal Nazis who write rape apologia articles makes me look bad, I think I can live with that.

I have very little to say about any of this (and y'all are free to discuss whatever you want about what I tweet), but just want to clarify a couple of things here.

One, this is hardly the first time I have made fun of some bigoted dipshit on my twitter feed.

Second, in regards to this:

@milkman: The problem with that is that asshole is subjective, Both Alex and Matt are insulting people they think are assholes.

Matt Forney is an asshole who has written articles like Fat Women Don't Deserve to be Loved and things several orders of magnitude worse that I won't reprint here. He also actively, proudly engages in sex tourism and is a white supremacist.

I am the asshole who compared the above asshole to a sculpture of a nightmarishly shaped human that was getting passed around yesterday.

If we're gonna "gotta consider both sides" this situation, let's be realistic about it, OK?
