The first thing that jumped out at me is that Bray was ordered to pay over $10,000 a month to his wife, in four months she would have more income than the average yearly income for a working-class American

That's usually a sign that Bray makes a ton of money and she makes literally none. Support like that is primarily made to maintain your standard of living, even if your standard of living is very high compared to basically anyone else.

Jeremy Corbyn has been made the subject of an official complaint to the Labour party over his suggestion in 2013 that some British Zionists do not understand 'English irony'.

Are you offended?

Why not put in a complaint?

I don't think its sarcastic. It's not much of a stretch to think that Xavier has real lovely opinions about games journalism.

And a better response would be to not reply to the tweet at all.

e: He also liked the tweet from Boogie.

So journalists acted entitled when gamers were mad at microtransactions.

He's trying to say that journalists are hypocrites when they get mad about something like a female video game character being overly sexualized (as an example), but not getting mad at microtransactions or DLC in videogames. Because "both are the same". It's a very toxic mentality to have.

And Xavier agreed with that statement. ...Which I guess makes sense considering he's working with Riot Games to push League of Legends. And Riot has their own issues right now in which no one who has a shred of dignity should want to partner with them.

I can’t make head nor tail of boogie’s post what the gently caress is he talking about

From a cursory glance at the thread it's the usual "ranting about SJW" nonsense you get from people who get upset at anything that's remotely progressive being depicted in a game, or when "the media" reports on some stupid entitled thing a gamer did. In this specific case, Boogie or whatever the gently caress is whining about why that same reporting standard isn't applied to predatory games companies milking saps for their money via microtransactions.

Not 100% for sure on all that, as I really couldn't bear to dig too deeply; but given how toxic your typical entitled gamer tends to be, I think it's a fairly safe assumption to make.

Also Xavier Woods is dumb if he actually agreed with that.

This is what happened to Dave Foley from Kids In The Hall. His Child Support was based on his income while he was on Newsradio, and when the show ended the judge refused to adjust to his much lower income as a d-list actor who didnít have regular network sitcom money coming in and it pretty much bankrupted him.

The justification was that his kids were used to a higher standard of living and itís not their fault that he couldnít command that income anymore, which is ridiculous because they would have had to adjust if he hadnít gotten divorced.
