I don't mind that it exists, but as a game it looks laughably terrible.

@excast: It just seems that there is this constant need among some figures in the industry, many of them women, to degrade, belittle, and demean what they perceive to be "straight male gamers".

But nothing in the tweets you quoted is demeaning, belittling, or degrading to straight male gamers. She didn't tell anybody not to play or enjoy the game, nor did she tell anybody to stop making games with sexualized characters. She's giving her opinion about subtext (or in the case of Bayonetta, just straight-up text) in a video game. That's literally it. She didn't say that she hates sexualized content, or that she thinks you should hate it too, or that you're wrong for not hating it. All she said is that she's disappointed that it's being ignored in the discussion around the game. That's all!

I think it's important not to conflate criticism of a media product with saying it shouldn't exist. Criticism is okay, it's healthy. Differing opinions are okay. You are allowed to like the things you like for any reason you want to, and other people are allowed to dislike them for any reason they want to, and you're both allowed to tell anybody you'd like to how you personally feel.

I feel that if you're reading a form of writing that's based exclusively in opinion, which reviews are (reviews are criticism, not journalism), then you shouldn't be surprised or upset when the writer expresses his/her opinion.

I also feel that if you're unable to read a review and distinguish between the writer's opinions and fact, and are unable to account for being exposed to opinions you're unfamiliar with or may disagree with, then that's on you and not the writer to figure out.

Opinions are the sine qua non of reviews, reviewers are human beings, and they should feel comfortable expressing whatever opinions they might have.

Everybody says "bop out" or "bopping out" when they're talking about exiting to a menu (or exiting something in general). It's kinda endearing, because it definitely sounds like it's a little piece of slang one person brought to the group and everybody just started using because it's handy.

@soup_menu: Yeah, phone is set up to allow unknown sources. Upon trying to install, it just fails with "App not installed" as the only message. Attached 2 images. I am trying to install it over the regular, non-beta version. Should I uninstall that first?

Nobody thinks that if we just make it to 2014, nothing bad is going to happen ever again. They're not saying 2013 is the cause of all these tragedies. They're just holding out hope for the future. I think that's understandable, and very human. There will still be tragedy in 2014, and we will still get sad about it.
