  1. David cage and his team then: our games are not political, it’s just coincidence 

    David Cage and his team now: we made a game actually about racism, sexuality, religious beliefs, etc. so we stand with you all and agree this is wrong! Emotions emotions emotions I know Jessie Jackson and Ellen page

      I think convenient is the word you’re looking for. Most game companies try to appropriate political language and themes for their games so they sound and look deep and mature, while claiming no responsibility regarding those themes contexts in regards to reality and opt to claim it’s unrelated because gamers hate “politics”. Which, in games like Detroit that literally focuses on oppression and discrimination, how dare you. How fucking dare you use our stories and experiences to build your world and characters and story, while being too spineless to admit the correlation to real world events, and stand with those communities (until it’s convenient marketing wise)

      Yeah no. You don't get to tie your hack ass games to actual real world injustice. You aren't woke, you aren't thoughtful, and you aren't anywhere near as liberal as you believe you are. Especially after the number of near sexual assaults placed in your games.

      Twitter is apparently, from what a lot of people are saying, deleting tweets and accounts from anyone talking about the blackout. There any sources that can verify this?

       

      edit: reddit too apparently 

      edit 2: can confirm tweets are being deleted, a few people I follow that were talking about it had their posts removed like 5 minutes after. Jesus Christ

      This was a strategic misinformation campaign. I dug into this pretty hard and it looks like a lot of false info going around. I checked traffic cams as well, they're online.

      Look up the hashtag #DCSafe to get a different perspective.

      Yeah I’ve seen. Wonder who has that kinda power to do something on a scale like this...

      I doubt it’s BLM, there’s already enough bullshit from police to make their points for them. Maybe some 4chan group that wants to make progressives and black communities look hysterical and desperate to get people’s attention?

      It happens more frequently than we like to think. Bots are getting more and more complex and it's likely a group of chuckleheads trying to fearmonger. 

      Thankfully, the only thing that looks to have actually happened is the White House going dark and the president hiding like a baby.

  3. Hot take: Black peoples lives matter. 

  4. Well whatever it is, it’s not that rumor that the Xbox Series X would be rebranded as the Sega Series X in Japan.
  5. There’s something fucked up and infuriating yet funny at the same time about law officials encouraging us to peacefully protest, only to then put undercover cops in crowds to start shit, make shit eating smirks at protestors and laugh at their chants to goad them into fighting them, and send armed forces to attack crowds not doing anything wrong. Here’s an example of the latter! These racist ass mothafuckas just lookin so red in the faces when they were exposed lololol! This was seriously therapeutic cause you just know they know what’s about to happen
  6. Guess we’ll have to see how long they crack down on them. I really hope this isn’t like every other time and police only do this for show as the protests are at their highest, and then once people move on, go back to business as usual. This outrage feels a lot more long lasting and impactful tho compared to previous attempts at voicing our concerns, so again, we’ll see. Maybe this will spark some long lasting needed changes to the police institutions
  7. FF7R’s OST is out, and we’re still waiting for KH3’s digital soundtrack release. What gives???

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Didn't every major KH game before 3 get an official soundtrack? I don't get that.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Yeah KH1 and 2 both got one. I had both of em when I was a kid. Disney can’t be that up the ass about it since they did them before, and they release their movie soundtracks digitally all the time. So it must be Square Enix for some reason 

  8. Seeing this discussion crop up on social media a lot in response to the things going on, so wanted to throw in my thoughts on it

     

    Prejudice =\= racism 

    A black guy saying he hates white guys because they’re white is prejudiced, yes, and unfair, but unless there’s any action systematically taken to oppress, harm and inconvenience whites on the basis of their skin color being perceived as lesser, that mentality does not stretch out to racism, and whites that treat it as such, only further lay out for everyone to see their privilege, if that mild inconvenience (like when someone of color makes a white joke) makes you jump to that. It’s why the term reverse-racism is such a joke to me and PoC.
     

    There’s also the context of why it’s being said that should be considered. Most black people I know that say “fuck white people” say that more to express frustration and anger at systematic privileges white people are often given and the often writing off by those people of the existence of any oppression or discrimination pointed out by marginalized groups. And again, it doesn’t lead into any action that harms the white community by saying it, and it doesn’t rub salt in a wound/kick sand in the face of a community that’s already down and struggling

    A white guy saying “fuck black people” probably won’t have a reason rooted in anything but racism to equalize and justify saying it in a similar fashion to blacks that doesn’t just simply come off as unreasonable, generalizing and discriminatory to a group still facing persecution daily

     

    simply put, they're not the same 

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      It's easier to boil down all the definitions into one word, which is why it's just "racism." In a formal setting, it would be called prejudice. Besides, white people can and have been discriminated against, but such cases HAVE NOT BEEN REPORTED IN THE WESTERN WORLD, I WANT TO MAKE THAT CLEAR BEFORE YOU GET ANY WRONG IDEAS.

      And yeah, "reverse-racism" is a joke because no such thing possibly exists. It comes from the association that only black people are hit with racism, which is a pretty ignorant perspective.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      “Besides, white people can and have been discriminated against”

      Perhaps individually they’ve been treated badly by certain people because of they're white, but never systematically wronged or seen as lesser, to the point they’d need to come together in solidarity to make known these things. If that were the case, white privilege would be a myth. 

    3. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      It happens in a lot of Asian countries, where many conservatives are against having a race other than their own residing in their country. Which sounds frighteningly similar to America and other western nations, and how black folks are discriminated against by conservatives that are against having a race other than their own etc., etc., you get it.

      That doesn't take away from the point that black people get it worse than white people ever do. As whites are a dominant race and blacks are a minority, white privilege is a thing whether white people support it or disagree with it. So yeah, whites can't call racism by it's definition, as there are no whites in the western world who are disadvantaged by being white. Unless someone other than white genuinely believes whites are inferior in some way, which is a pretty open-and-shut case of racism by it's definition, but that comes with a whole new set of issues.

      I feel like I forgot what my original point was somewhere. But ultimately, discrimination against whites in the western world is prejudice, not racism, unless otherwise in specific cases.

  11. I’m led to believe Alpharad didn’t actually playthrough the entirety of FF7 OG if he’s saying characters like Barret and Tifa are flat and one dimensional tropes...cause that’s obviously not true if you get to their backstory moments. Like Barrets hometown, or when you’re searching for Cloud. I don’t think starting with FF7R should effect your perception of the characterization of the OG cast THAT much.

    1. Wrapped in Black

      Even without the OG it's pretty obvious that there's more to Barrett just from REMAKE.

      I mean that goes without saying. But I don’t think classic suffers much as a result. It’s still fairly deep and goes into a lot of themes for what it is.

      Update on anonymous. They’ve hacked the Chicago PD’s radio so they can’t communicate with eachother and are playing random music and noises 

       

       

       

  14. honestly I don’t sympathize with any police departments since all police are apart of a overall corrupted institution that has oppressed for decades that rarely has instances of police holding eachother fully accountable for said corruption. The concept of a “good cop” imo does not exist when those “good” cops are either silent, or defensive until it becomes some national issue. Only then will they make sympathetic emotional posts or gestures. When all eyes are on them. The examples I posted are official police being told by higher ups to do this stuff, with ICE, National Guard, etc all in on it, and Trump is only further enabling their behavior, especially when years back he even said to “rough up thugs”. they aren’t small patches of “otherwise fine police”. It’s entire precincts in massive states with anyone that may have a problem with it staying quiet and not attempting to do anything till it’s too late. And that shit has been going on for, again, decades. Let’s not forget frisking still goes on in many places still, and it was being treated normally for the longest time. This is the inevitable end point. It always was gonna go this way if they kept pushing and didn’t make any real effort to change. Especially when the last time BLM worked with police to make body cams a thing, shit officers just turned them off regardless and continued to do what they were doing before. So I say a couple likely insured buildings being burned down isn’t nearly as damaging, as the shit for years they’ve been doing to US citizens, by terrorizing communities, murdering people in the name of “justice”/“fear” incarcerating people on false or exaggerated charges, etc. that institution is in need of a ground up reform, or just needs to be thrown the fuck out. But anyway, that aside, yeah, peaceful protesting is only one form of protesting. A form that often isn’t even good enough for minorities to do without being told they’re doing it wrong, so people shouldn’t really be shocked that things start to escalate when that’s proving to be ineffective. Edit: god there is new information and cases of police corruption almost every 5 minutes, it’s so difficult and exhausting to keep up with to share. I’m gonna take a break, but before I do that, here’s this little gem Are we in a fucking dystopian movie or something?
  15. Couple more updates I missed: -NYPD car literally ran over protestors NYPD cop pulls down a non aggressive protestors mask and pepper sprays him in the mouth A local LA news station is filming specific parts of the protest to make the protestors look bad specifically while not filming anything that makes the PD look like the villains. should be noted the News van is apparently parked with the police cars in the parking lot And I won’t post them here, but there are more LA officers being exposed on Twitter with their police cams being turned off. This is a nightmare from the sound of things, it sounds like the LA protest were peaceful up until the police showed up. Then they started randomly firing tear gas bombs. This is just unreal. Literally all throughout the country this shit is happening Edit: don’t know how accurate the claim is, but I’m seeing some suggesting ICE is now getting involved in the LA riots. Being in Portland, I hope they don’t travel upwards from there throughout the night... edit 2: “Film the crowd, not the police sir!” Wow. One reporter and his gang in Minnesota don’t seem to be as jolly with the police as LA reporters
  16. Gonna spoil cause this relates to what’s going on right now and some are not wanting to see it.

    edit: after deliberating, and chatting with people in the status a bit, I think I’ll post it, without the spoiler tab. if anyone is uncomfortable/disturbed with this, PM me and I’ll put it back in spoiler tabs:

    If you’re keeping up with what’s going in LA specifically, I think you can agree, fuck the police. Officers in gear getting ready to beat protestors not in their homes during curfew, some are smiling and laughing at people chanting “I can’t breath”, and they’re turning off body cams and hiding their names. Just...god fuck the police seriously.

      Friends are live texting and video streaming for me to keep in contact with them. There are cops smiling as they prepare to violently assault people. This seriously is a repeat of 2018’s(I think it was then) Portland protest that went national

  18. My city (Portland) is attempting to enact a 8:00 PM curfew for all citizens. Lol have fun enforcing that guys, I see this backfiring immensely. Especially given how intense the riots here have gotten even compared to that one a few years back that went national LA is currently a hot seat right now with corrupt officers In Minnesota national guard and MNPD are launching paint canisters at people on while they're at their own homes Also just a heads up, all this stirred up Anonymous and they’re gonna be leaking shit soon. Jesus Christ What the fuck is going on
  19. Has anyone suggested the Arms fighter for Smash might just be Springman with a Springtron alt like Olimar/Alph, and when you’re SM the assist trophy turns to ST and vice versa, and if both characters are on the stage, the AT just won’t show up? That certainly seems fairly realistic as a possibility, and since it’s not just SM technically could explain why they showed the whole roster for speculation vs just announcing SM.

      yeah but that's boring so i choose to reject it

      My only hope for the ARMS character is that they don't pull a hero with it and make it 4 playable characters. Mainly cause it'll strengthen the argument of people say that everybody plays the same and has nothing unique about them because "duuuur little mac with reach"

  20. Majora’s Mask fluctuates so much with nintendo players. Cause it seems like now it’s becoming the thing to say it’s “fine, but not that great” but like 3 years ago I could have sworn everyone was saying it was an underrated gem 

    1. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      It could be possible that people are being hit with hype backlash.  It could be possible that everyone saying it was an underrated gem gave some people high expectations and came out underwhelmed.

      Zelda games in general seem to have this happen to them all the time and I don’t get why. OoT had it happen, Windwaker definitely had it happen, I think TP recently is getting a lot more love than it got even when Wii U HD dropped.

      @Wrapped in Black Been watching the Alpharad smash tournament stream, and he and a bunch of guys on it were discussing both OoT and MM and it sounded pretty unanimous that they in regards to MM found the game long, slow and very tedious at times, with one of the guys saying he didn’t enjoy most of the transformations. A lot of the chat on the stream seemed to also agree with them 

    6. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      Kids don't have the attention span for that game.

      I always thought MM was praised for being fairly straightforward and condensed compared to OoT. Though there definitely can be some feeling of repetition with the constant need to go back in time I can admit 

    8. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Well Alpharad is wrong, how about them apples

       

      Ok, is not a game from everyone.

    9. KHCast

      @Wrapped in Black It’s funny you say they don’t have the attention span for it, cause the guy that didn’t like most of the transformation, said the only one he liked was Goron Link because he was fast

      It is straightforward and condensed but it also has you solving puzzles to progress more often than the other games.

  21. I get it’s unnerving, I’m worried myself, especially when there’s seemingly a lot of governmental and legal officials, and hate groups attempting to control the narrative and turn it back on minorities through some pretty shady methods from what I’ve heard, but we just gotta deal with the cards being given. It’s definitely more complicated nowadays to make our way through this mess, and a lot of bad will probably come before good, but we’ve been down this road throughout history tons of times and it typically tends pay off in some way. And especially in a election year, the last thing Trump probably wants to do is incite a race war, so hopefully this won’t escalate that far.
  22. These movements also lasted longer than 3 days, and evolved. Be patient. Even the civil rights had moments where it looked like needless rioting. MLK didn’t control the entire movement for the longest time, and Malcolm X was pushing for aggressive ideas like rioting and violence. Neither of them at the start had clear ideas of where these movements were gonna go. People say otherwise or claim it’s different to now because we have hindsight and the full scope of these movements to compare to a 3 day riot. BLM back in 2016 was also a protest and riot that people claimed had no goals. A few days (weeks?) later and they ended up actually working with police and got body cams to become a thing officers needed to wear. It takes time. The aggression and scale of these riots due to the increase of people in America is naturally gonna amp up when over the years since the civil rights things have noticeably gotten more subtly shit vs better for black communities. And because of this, it will take a bit longer before things can become more organized.
  23. Idk by this logic, you might as well have said this for the early-mid civil rights movement or stonewall. “I get people are tired of discrimination, but what’s the end goal?” was there a end goal for Colin kaepernick kneeling at every football game? Was there an end goal for black lives matter back in 2015-16? Was there a end goal for the women’s march a few years back? A lot of protests start out based on anger and being tired of how society has operated. A lot of peaceful protests even are often just based on frustration/anger and nothing more. It doesn’t just automatically start out with clear end goals. If I’m being honest, I feel like someone that thinks this prob is out of touch with how marginalized groups often operate when faced with frequent discrimination
  24. Okay, but that’s different from the quoted piece from your post. You asked what this could possibly be about now because he’s been arrested, I'm just saying there are reasons to still protest, whether it’s peaceful or not. Whether it’s coordinated well is irrelevant to my point
  25. He’s been arrested, but not tried yet as far as I’m aware. For all we know he could get a charge that’s a slap on a wrist, a small sentence that gets him out of prison after a few years, etc. that and the cops that were accomplishes and defending him just got fired but aren’t really being held accountable for much. Add on top of things like that cop that was revealed to have been the one who started the rioting showing that cops are trying to undermine the movement, the protestors getting arrested and beaten and shot, trumps tweet, there’s a lot past the fact that the murderer got arrested to still be frustrated about
