He's very good friends with that awful bigoted youtuber SethTzneech or whatever you spell it which made me wary but it hasn't really seemed to influence his videos so I don't care much.

It weirded me out when he just out and called the one guy in Morrowind a 'human being' like it was the height of humor, let alone all the other poo poo. I can buy that he is just a time capsule 2007 channer person but theres a point where it stops becoming just that tbh. And even on that front the way he like just repeats Funny Meme Words that he hears like a small child was really obnoxious. I only watched a handful of his videos because people seem to praise the poo poo out of him before tapping out but I remember in one he just keeps calling people in the game 'manlets' for no reason other than it's a Designated Funny Word. It made no sense at all.

I only watched bits and pieces of DTRH vids in the past, I think the templeOS one was the only one I fully watched and I thought it was very interesting but it put a bad taste in my mouth to see how kid gloves he is about Kiwifarms and how they're actually cool and good, but he apparently is a regular there so I guess that makes sense. Gross as hell though.

I was willing to cut her some slack when on some stream she clarified more about the whole thing that caused the dramabomb and it came off far more reasonable than her tweets, and then like a week later she came back to twitter and immediately tweeted out a "sorry i DARED to have an OPINION!" poo poo and boy was my face red.

People saw a framed Ben garrison or some other right wing politician comic in the background of one of his vids like 3 years ago and have extrapolated that he's a huge chud ever since. Even tho I think he lives/lived with his parents so it was probably theirs?

Oh yeah, the serious crime of liking Marvel movies.

Sure, Moviebob might have said some weird poo poo about the working class and rural people, but that's not as bad as enjoying Captain Marvel.

Did I miss a post cuz all I see is someone saying that thinking watching a marvel movie is causing societal change is dumb, not liking movies at all.

It's placing judgement on somebody for not paying appropriate deference to whoever they've deified as a film-maker. Scorsese and his work not beyond criticism, and neither are you.

I think it's ok to enjoy marvel movies. I just dont think it's ok to say captain marvel did anything meaningful for actual female empowerment...just my 2 cents.

Okay but this isn't reasonable or normal though. Like, sure, disagree as to what degree of meaning it has, but clearly it is in fact meaningful, or at least is meaningful to a lot of people, especially women. I keep remember that scene near the end where the guy is like "Fight me man to man!" and she blasts him because gently caress that poo poo and that is meaningful social commentary.

That sort of exchange is one of the oldest cliches in the book for this sort of thing. How is it meaningful social commentary?

I gave the Mario Odyssey vid by that Joseph Anderson guy an honest shot since I thought the game was decent but not as good as people said so I thought maybe I'd enjoy it but what I was met with was like 2 hours of nonsensical points and garbage. He gets angry that the postgame Moons are just going back to the previous worlds to do new stuff, and then in another point of the video talks about how SMG2 is the best game ever because you can replay the game but as Luigi, doing the same stuff but with extra coin placement or whatever. I think he spends so long making his videos he completely forgets things he said and just contradicts himself constantly.

The Outer Worlds is a pathetic game, a worse version of Fallout: New Vegas with rancid centrist politics and badly written companions. Disco Elysium is the only RPG deserving of your love in 2019.

The 'big moral decision' on the first planet was so insultingly shallow that it soured me completely on outer worlds. least i only had to pay a buck to try it on gamepass.

I don't get why the lady never brings up not letting any of the people from the town in until after you flip the switch and then your only responses are "aw shucks. well. bye" I guess to try to make you feel bad cuz actually bad things are good, and good things...are bad!!!

Sure, but the fact that you can't actually do anything besides shrug and leave is more what bugs me.

Also she says she wouldn't allow bootlickers in, but after you flip the switch she changes to saying she won't allow any of them in period.

Hrmm. I'll have to go look up the dialogue because I could have sworn she flat out says that anyone there isn't pure enough to be allowed in under any circumstance. But if I'm wrong then I'm wrong.

Okay so I'll qualify that my only exposure to the Fate series is Fate/Zero.

But yes, seriously. Fate/Zero is a loving insanely bad anime written by someone who has majorly weird issues with women. I watched the whole thing and I honestly couldn't tell you why I did. The ending is completely predictable from a mile away after just the first episode, even if you don't know that the grail is possessed by some sort of evil God or something?

They talk up summoning King Arthur, make a big deal about how King Arthur is the most powerful summon, blah blah, they summon the king and oh nooo it's a woman. The main character is pissed about this for some reason. Artoria - the most powerful fighter you can summon - then gets nicked very slightly in a battle by Cu Chulainn (a man) and is out of combat action for practically the entire series. Half the loving show is scenes of different, male kings summoned from history sitting down and telling Artoria that she sucks and that she's the worst king ever and that she's a loser. It's honestly kind of shocking

It was so bad that I have no interest in ever seeing anything in the Fate series or anything written by that guy (Gen Urobuchi) again. The fact that it was recommended to me as the best piece of Fate media is disconcerting to me.

Zero kinda works in context to the original series but it's a giant mess and basically anyone who suggests it as 'the only good fate series' is an idiot who only cares about things looking 'badass' or 'cool' Sucks it soured you on checking out the rest of the franchise but I frankly don't blame you.
