    Examples of how Feminism works to benefit men

    I'll start out with the easy one - the fact that we don't bar women from most professions for no real reason any more means that in the aggregate we have a larger and more productive economy, which in the aggregate means we all have access to a level of economic development that wouldn't exist...

    Oprah to India: You still eat with your hands? o0

    I eat ice cream with my hands all the time :D

    Please let Pokemon gracefully exit.

    If this graph: is anything to go by, I'd say a little of both. I've got a younger cousin playing pokemon now, and it seems to me that the core components that appealed to me and my friends at her age (collectible monsters that look cute and/or awesome, strong social elements...

    Tabletop Problem Player

    Sounds like he got some crazy good rolls. If random variation in starting character stats is a problem, have you guys considered switching to some sort of array and/or point buy system?

    Underage Sexual Assault Victim Faces Jail Time...For Tweeting the Names of Her Attackers (UPDATED)

    I'm pretty okay with sex offender having to deal with society knowing they're sex offenders. And apparently the court is, too.

    Please let Pokemon gracefully exit.

    Back in my day we didn't have these newfangled physical psychic attacks and special rock attacks. And we only had one special stat to go around. And we walked uphill both ways through Mt. Moon.

    Please let Pokemon gracefully exit.

    I dunno, trading was part of the fun. As was the duplication glitch :D

    Please let Pokemon gracefully exit.

    Special attack/defense (or just special, if it's gen I) governs special attacks, vanilla attack and defense governs physical attacks. What's there to understand? But to be fair, I knew that when I was 10, too.

    Underage Sexual Assault Victim Faces Jail Time...For Tweeting the Names of Her Attackers (UPDATED)

    They don't want to be known as sex offenders? Maybe they should have thought of that before they committed sexual assualt. Excellent news:

    The oldest game you still play to this day?

    Shiren the Wanderer. Old SNES graphical roguelike. Pretty excellent in basically every way. Also chess if you count that haha.

    The Elder Scrolls VI: Gameplay Changes

    Not convinced TES is salvageable. They seemed to think the fun part of Morrowind was W+M1ing into scribs/cliffracers/bandits/whatever, and polished that turd at the expense of the fun stuff. TES may not be the series for you haha.

    Poll: What's your attitude towards exploits?

    Depends on the exploit. If it makes the game more fun (wavedashing, skiing) it's a good thing. If it makes the game less fun, not so much. But in general I tend to err on the side of "don't hate the player, hate the game."

    Just what is a JRPG anyway?

    IIRC the term "role-playing game" initially meant you control one character vs. a squad or army of characters. The name got passed on to games based on D&D (and later, other P&P RPG) mechanics. I don't dispute that SRIII does the character customization thing better than, say, Mass Effect or...

    Just what is a JRPG anyway?

    ^This. Seriously, it still cracks me up that EC did a series of episodes on RPG taxonomy without taking 15 minutes to learn the history of RPGs.

    Just what is a JRPG anyway?

    Is that the one where they basically said ppl play RPGs to grind, mechanics are a misleading way to define genres, and that Dark Souls is a WRPG? Because lol.
