Alright that should be the OP outside of the food related content, ill format and put those in later.
If you see any glaring omissions or mistakes let me know.

Defunctland should probably go in the list right around Tony Goldmark, imo

Dude, this is really loving horrible for some people. Kindly let them come down for a space and talk about other things in the thread if they need to.

no trust me, I completely understand and respect that.

what i do not understand and respect is the desire to replace that with rehashing the exact same loving arguments about the last jedi over and over again instead of talking about literally anything else

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.

Anyways, I'll try not to rant too much. Continue on the discussion.

My contribution (if it's my last): Diamanda Hagan just dropped a review of Chirpy 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6-CH750yqY If you don't know what Chripy is, Google her original review of it.

It's about a horse loving a bird. yup.

And FWIW, I just became a top-tier Patreon of hers, so sometime in the future there'll be a ep-by-ep TV series review of my choice, and a possible cameo.

Free lornekates, they did nothing wrong and it's lovely to look at a large post and go "wow this person is obviously insane" when they're just trying to be as accurate as possible to avoid causing new problems.

the fact that you think it was the length of the post and not the content that made lornekates look like they were unfit to hold any form of power over anyone makes it pretty clear you either didn't actually read it or you think that's an acceptable way to talk and behave, not after being punished, but just for being relieved of duty from something.

Sandy Irons was banned by George Noory due to Irons simply calling in to bash fan theories surrounding Supreme Leader Snoke of the Star Wars franchise. Irons' final call in was on August 16, 2017 when he shouted over the phone, "Your Snoke theory sucks! All Snoke theories suck!" as soon as he got on the line. Noory simply asked Irons for his own Snoke theory and Irons began shouting again. Noory dumped him mid-shouting and Irons was banned from the program.[20]

lol, suddenly everyone and their mother had a Primal video

Ubi never got in touch with me though, shame as I wouldn't have minded trying Far Cry: 10,000 BC.

I'm interested in playing 5 though really, only because I'm really jonesing to climb towers, raid bases, hunt with a bow and set things on fire...couldn't give a toss about the story tbh, sorry folks. FC3 remains one of my favourites of the last decade, mind.

bad news, there's no towers to climb, no point in hunting animals because there's nothing to craft, and the flamethrower is possibly the worst flamethrower i've ever used in a video game and that's saying something

the brief time I played Far Cry 5 it gave me the feeling of a movie that was in development hell and passed around between different directors and editors to try and salvage something out of it, so you have these deathly serious cutscenes interspersed with disjointed, frenetic open world gameplay and irreverent jokey dialogue being piped into your ear and South Park-esque mission intros for recreating a famous stuntman's stunts and nothing about the game felt like it was a coherent, focused project made by humans

I mean, Mafia 1's whole appeal was that it was a sleeper open world hit, so I'm not sure why 2 wouldn't have started as an open world game too. That's the whole reason why 2K bought up the dev team.

Though there was also scuttlebutt that that one racist idiot was a terrible project director. (Don't think he was the writer on it?)

Daniel Vavra was the lead designer, writer and director of Mafia 1 and I'm not sure about his other roles but he was definitely a writer on 2.
