Elite Dangerous, which was successfully Kickstarted to the tune of £1.5m back in November 2012, promised so much. But has it delivered?
Fighting for digital only is self serving for those who forget that other people might not be as fortunate as you.
Once publishers get everyone herded into digital, they'll overprice,
If physical copies were to go, and publishers would very much like that, we'd live in a world of monopoly
What I was referring to was the level of Sarkeesian-worship that seems to be going on among some of her supporters, where any critique is derided.
It reminds me of when I try to breathe a word about how meh some of the Marvel movies are
but if any man replies with a different point of view and with his own critical analysis - nevermind if it's with well-argued and reasoned points - it's immediately dismissed and shot down by her defenders as "mansplaining", misogyny, harassment, hate, trolling, arrogance, bigotry, idiocy, vitriol, being thin-skinned and defensive, being a manchild and against progress, anti-intellectualism and so on.
deserved someone more objective and less biased
a retort that makes sense?
We aren't talking about honest criticism here in Anita saying "Oh, this game is bad because of poor mechanics, bad story." she's charging the gaming community with a charge of culturally ingrained sexism.
What differentiates this from something eg. Xenonauts?
Sounds like I made the right decision buying FTL for my Mac and not buying an iPad to game on.
Diversity for its own sake is not art. That is how it's a bad thing.
It's their over-representation in certain titles *cough cough Bioware* and the extremely hamfisted and overly explicit way they are handled.
oh you want to make this about free speech?
everyone has agendas, mate. everyone.
they SEEK these 'transgressions' out just for the sake of having something to whine about in their boring little lives.
I'm gonna make this real simple for you. REAL simple. I am my own person. If I suddenly realised needed to 'identify' with someone else in a video game for any reason, I'd seek a therapist.
No, 'minority' people shouldn't stick to playing 'minority-people-games'. What even are those?
And that's where the footstomping begins
Oh how I miss the old school days of gaming when I didn't have SJWs pushing their whining and agendas in my face
If there are games that achieve the 'representation' that you want, and that is your criteria for a game that you like, then play those.
The difference between a male human and a female attacking a Krogan is minimal because both should lose horribly in equal conditions
I can well imagine a crew of ten insecure vain arseholes with Napoleon complexes, with one of each race and sex represented.
Thats because it is not a true ideology with actual beliefs and principles, but rather a psychological pathology, a collective delusion built around receiving and doling out persecutions and counter-persecutions.
Yes, I will acknowledge that re-reading your post, I did misinterpret much of what you said.
However, my points still stand firm, just they shouldn't be applied to you entirely.
My point is having a certain shade of skin, for example, isn't a meaningful contributing aspect to personality-- because of the clear fact that people from all backgrounds and circumstances have wildly varying personalities.
Excuse me but my character is nothing like that of nearly all other white blokes.
When people started asking for more women in main character roles, their argument usually was that just as many women played games as men. I really doubt you can say that about trans people, who are a minority indeed. Having a trans main character would make it easier for them relate, but also risk making it harder for the rest of the players base.
