    Man At Arms: Reforged: Asuna's Rapier (Sword Art Online)

    Yeah I noticed that too... there isn't really anything in the structure of the MAA episodes that would allow them to give credit to anyone referenced, the endslate is just a logo, a background and links to two more videos. I wonder if their YT posting of this episode mentions it at all, there's...

    Man At Arms: Reforged: Katniss' Bow (The Hunger Games)

    Yeah Ilya makes it clear in these demos that he's probably the most dangerous member of the team when actually using any of those weapons, if he doesn't have some sort of military combat training then he's probably a self-taught weapons enthusiast in addition to being a Smithing mad-genius.

    SMITE Lore: Who is Hercules?

    Hercules as one of the good Disney movies? Ehhh... it's really more mixed than good...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Will History End?

    Ultimately... his theory taken as an absolute rather than a generalised trend seems a little simplistic. The idea of actually obtaining rather than constantly pursuing perfection is rather naïve, and while I am a big fan of rationality, humans are fundamentally more complicated than that and...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Is A Cat A Cat? (Derrida + Double Dragon)

    Yeah I struggle to see the ultimate point in this one... Congratulations Derrida, you have pointed out that language is flawed, mutable and subjective. Is your proposed "solution" a nihilistic repudiation of language itself and any meaning we could try to obtain through it, or simply accepting...

    Man At Arms: Reforged: Jacob's Cane Sword (Assassin's Creed Syndicate)

    While a very cool design... it does feel a bit premature to have a build of it before the game comes out, can't help seeming a little sketchy, especially with the blatant promotional sections and Ubisoft's other recent behaviour pre-emptively pimping out the game by approaching YouTubers for...

    8 Bit Philosophy: What is Woman? (de Beauvoir + Metroid)

    I have a feeling the comments for this episode on the YouTube posting are... not something I care to view.

    Take My Money: Survival Gear for Fallout

    Dear Escapist, despite having your site whitelisted on my adblock, your video player on this video paused for an ad that never happened three times, forcing me to reload the page three times until the low-res, terrible-sound-quality, annoying ad for a store that doesn't exist in my country would...

    Zero Punctuation: Godzilla - God-Awful-Zilla

    Unrelated... but Bojack Horseman can fuck right off, even without the mind-numbing repetition of it being before every video on this site, it looks painfully unfunny from the "highlights" they choose as an advertisement.

    8 Bit Philosophy: What is Marxism? (Karl Marx + Super Mario Bros.)

    Well he's not wholly wrong at least. Capitalism does have a dark side, it can be exploitative, it can crush the average worker, even push them out of work altogether. The mistake of Marxism is in pursuing that unrealistic utopian ideal in defiance of certain cold, hard truths of reality...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Who Was Machiavelli? (The Prince)

    Well considering that the father of this philosophy lived out the rest of his days in exile, doesn't seem like that strategy panned out too well for him, or it's a tacit admission that he himself was unable to live by his words. Hell, we've seen in the real world that that kind of attitude...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Do We Need Government (The Social Contract)

    Well if we're dealing with such remote hypotheticals, then maybe it would be possible to fundamentally shift the structures of society over time and several intermediary stages like that... but that still relies on there being absolutely no negative traits INHERANT to human nature, people can...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Do We Need Government (The Social Contract)

    Much like Communism or Objectivism, Anarchism relies on a dangerous level of trust in the better nature of each and every citizen of a society, a trust that is statistically speaking, not always deserved. Don't get me wrong, I think it would be nice if we could live under one of these systems...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Do We Need Government (The Social Contract)

    Most people are reasonable, they can live moral lives without some third party enforcing it with a heavy hand... there's always going to be the one asshole that ruins it for everyone though. It is rather breathtakingly naïve to suggest we can get by without any sort of leadership or...
