    The last thing we watched, cartoon/animu edition

    I think he just likes the show despite of the fanservice. Personally I think the Monogatari series is just not good. It's like Ghost Stories (not the dub), but none of the stories are scary. There's some avant-garde directing that makes you think there's something's there but, there's not. I'm...

    The last thing we watched, cartoon/animu edition

    This whole discussion reminds me of that one ANN writer who said Nisemonogatari's fanservice was actually anti-fanservice, because the director selected shots as if the female character was in control of the camera, the context being Nadeko trying to seduce Araragi. Aha, so it's technically not...

    In Hindsight, the Wii was the best Nintendo console.

    The lack of third party games and not being part of the multiplayer shooter trend made it gather a lot of dust. Yeah the casual market is bigger, but if all these people want is Wii Sports then it's not a good demographic to sell games.

    Let's talk about how we think copyright should work

    You have to ask whether you want a curated museum where everything is in glass boxes, or libraries run by communities where everyone can borrow and copy games freely and not just publicists and researchers. If it's a non-profit organization like the R&R Hall of Fame, it's definitely going to be...

    Let's talk about how we think copyright should work

    My idea would be to have a consumer protection law that says after X years, if you ask a company for an activation key they would be required to send it to you. If the key is not enough, because for example the authentication server was shut down, then they would have to give you the unprotected...

    Unpopular opinion: The Cowboy Bebop dub is overrated.

    I'm not an sub elitist, but in my opinion the argument you can't hear quality in a language you can't understand is over-exaggerated. If you watch enough anime you will get a general idea of what Japanese sounds like. Are there performances that sound fake and terrible to native speakers...

    Let's talk about how we think copyright should work

    Public domain doesn't fix game preservation. It's a bigger problem now with more games being sold on online stores that come with periodic checks. There's nothing to compel the publisher to remove DRM, and there's nothing preventing them from shutting down the authentication server or taking...

    Pay 2 Win Acceptance

    It's true though. Just like any game can be fun with friends, an entertaining streamer can make a game more entertaining. That's advertisement and it's why so many games got big through twitch. 90% of players will leave whether the game is pay-to-win or not, but the problem is that instead of...

    The Perfect Apolitical/Politics Free Video.

    Sure, it's easy to find. It's the first result when you google that phrase. Do let me know if you have issues with it. https://www.pewresearch.org/2009/06/02/public-backs-affirmative-action-but-not-minority-preferences/

    The Perfect Apolitical/Politics Free Video.

    People who self-identify as progressive. What does that actually mean? Eh, I don't know. Do some liberals agree with some of progressive politics. Sure. It's not my interpretation, it's a survey question. I don't know what people think, but I'm assuming they think it's affirmative action and...

    The Perfect Apolitical/Politics Free Video.

    I don't know what message mongering means, but I'll just say that I like when games pander to me, and I have no interest in games that don't. Am I going to ask games to pander to me? Absolutely, everyone should. I'm also curious to how many mainstream games actually go in the other direction...

    The Perfect Apolitical/Politics Free Video.

    Politics in video games is a euphemism for progressive politics in video games. Normal people don't say the latter because they would rather avoid the negative implication. If you go on not-so-normal videogame websites, they'll say the latter. Why this and only this? Well less than 10% of the...

    Diablo Immortal is Finally out....it's trash.

    I'm sure you can have a perfectally normal experience in those games without spending any extra cash. In Lost Ark you pull the lever, fail, and then are timegated. You cannot run high end content. It's not just pay-to-win, it's pay-to-spin. But again, Asmon mislead his audience. How do I know...

    Diablo Immortal is Finally out....it's trash.

    He said was Lost Ark was pay-to-win, but it's okay because the game is free. I don't know about you, but that makes no sense because pay-to-win games are usually free. He's not giving you a moral lesson on gambling, he's locked behind the paywall and has to keep his hype audience watching...

    Diablo Immortal is Finally out....it's trash.

    Bro, Asmon mislead his audience to what Lost Ark actually was before it was out. When it came out he shilled the game in front of half a million live viewers and a million youtube subscribers. A game that was projected to get a couple hundred thousand players at best, now has 10+ million...
