Best games of all time lists that are mostly old Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon titles.

I mean as tiring as it gets, Mario and Zelda did a lot of interesting things and influenced their genres a crazy amount and continue to do so, it'd be kind of dishonest to not have them in some top spots, even if it means most lists keep on ending up with SMB3, OoT/Majora's Mask and Half-Life 2 at the top.

Wait, is Rampage actually based on the game? They made more Rampage games? Jesus, I thought that game died with the NES.

It kind of is but also no they did not, it's another "LET'S MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF BATTLESHIP!" situation.

Are there any news outlets covering this that could offer a primer on who all these people are and the history of the organization? I honestly am lost and this seems to be going to much darker places than I was anticipating.

At least in this most recent big case, JewWario (Justin Carmical) was a pretty well loved dude who did videos on importing games, collectibles and things like that, primarily they did a bunch of videos (You Can Play This) about japanese games you could import and play without knowing japanese. He 'left' Channel Awesome and just under a year later, committed suicide, which shook everything as hard as you'd expect, then this all comes to light and makes everything about it that much worse.

Been waiting for a lull in the CA traumadrama to post.

So a certain admin, FactsAreUseless, has decided to demod me. This was out of nowhere, and without any consultation with me, or with any other admin. The only reason I got is that I was being "too professional", and enforcing rules. The only way I can read this is that someone didn't like their probe, and complained to their admin friend. Just my feeling. (FYI: it wasn't anyone in this thread. Y'all are cool and I love you).

This, needless to say, hurts quite a bit. I've been wanting to participate more in the recent discussion, but I'm a bit heartbroken. Being perfectly honest, I don't know if I'll do any more than lurk. On the other hand, I'll sleep on that for the weekend. If I do go away, please be not-assholes to each other.

Any discussion I've had with other mods or admins seems to boil down to "no one but FAU seems to have decided this, so nothing we can do". So if you want any more information about what happened, or reinstatement, that's something you'll need to discuss with the admin of your choice.

Given that RDG basically only has 6 threads of note, and only 2 of them produce mod reports, I'm completely baffled as to how anyone can think too much time is spent on mod reports for a particular thread. It's-- literally just statistics.

Kim Justice posted:

I think that lornekates' removal from modding this forum is an absolute disgrace. He was doing a fine job of moderating this forum, and for some loving admin who has no connection to here at all to just remove him like that is an utter joke.

Most of them just want to hear someone talk about how they really are the victim and find sympathetic voices. I don't believe they are unreachable.

Despite efforts to always offload these things onto "Rednecks" and other barely coded "THE POOORS!" analogs, most of the neo-nazis alt-right are upper middle class shitheels, they're victims of nothing and deserve no sympathy.

In that case, it seems like it would be completely ineffectual on top of everything else. If someone is willing to sleep on a hard stone bench, they’d probably also be willing to sleep on the ground, so really it's just a pointless nuisance.

Also Bennet is the Ricky Gervais of anime critics, trying and failing to be provocative. I remember anytime someone gave the tiniest bit of praise to Evangelion or Akira or Grave of the Fireflies he was on Twitter to be all "Well actually those suck and the creators are hacks and you're wrong for liking them!"

His gripe with Grave of the Fireflies is that things the director said afterwards warped the tone of it all a lot for him.

He mostly keeps it out of YMS stuff, but they also do streams and LPs where boy are they unpleasant in those often enough. He's gone on "The essjooz!" screeds, he's got some friend or another who's glad to drop slurs at random and they don't make a peep about it, gets into the really tired kind of edgy bullshit attitude, just whew did that all turn me off of them pretty bad.

I was just about to say this! Their review of Acrimony was great and made me want to see it. I kinda admire Tyler Perry in a weird way though.

I always want to like Tyler Perry for a few things, but it feels like every other movie or so has a "Hit your kids" moment that kind of torpedoes everything for me. Like man you can make family movies without playing to that kind of "family", on that point at least he needs an unironic "Get with the times."

Not really, the prospect of "gently caress death" pretty well appeals to anyone but crazies.

Getting there is the difficulty but if the option was "Die" or "Never Die" I'm gonna say people would pick the latter regardless of the majority of backgrounds.

With the world being as crazy at it is, and trending towards getting more awful, I would honestly prefer dying, as opposed to living forever to see how much worse things get.

See that's stupid though, the world's not, the lovely people are more visible but they're steadily dying and being overwhelmed. The neo-nazis and all that garbage are dangerous, but they're louder because they're getting a parting peep out from their regular sadboy death spiral, the frogmen and their like are even easier, they crumple at the very implication of real resistance. Smoothbrains like the administration are some of the most hated we've ever had, they were put in place primarily by a broken system exploited by conmen. Injustices are shoved back against harder today than they were before, terrible people get told to gently caress off louder, progress regardless of constant speed is winning out. Get that dumb defeatist crap out mind.
