    Fullmetal Alchemist Live Action Movie Casting

    I came here hoping to discuss the actor choices for a new film, and whether or not it might be any good, instead I get treated to two pages of TL:DR ideological horseshit. Guess I'll check the forums again in another year; maybe by then we can get back to actually discussing geek shit instead...

    Target Australia will no longer stock GTA5

    So, Third-Wave Feminism is essentially the Left's Right? Sorry, I just said that in my head and it made me chuckle. I do agree, though.

    Target Australia will no longer stock GTA5

    They're not just looking at it and going, 'I don't like this' though, are they, they're looking at it and going 'I don't like this therefore I'm going to hamper the ability of other people to enjoy it'. Your double-standards are as astounding as they are infuriating: You think it's immature...

    Target Australia will no longer stock GTA5

    And what about all the men you can also murder in GTA V, did you conveniently forget about that? As usual, feminists are turning a non-issue into a gendered one. Also, as far as I'm aware, there is little to no part of GTA that actually forces you to murder prostitutes, specifically; that's a...

    Target Australia will no longer stock GTA5

    Almost as immature as, say, petitioning to have a game removed from sale at a store because you, personally, find its content disagreeable? Nobody was forcing these idiots to buy a copy of GTA V, this is just a company bending to the will of some reactionary puritan dipshits because they...

    A thank you to mr. Tito

    Much love, Mr Tito, you are a man of strong moral fiber and I have a great respect for that; whatever shit you've had to put up with as a result of all this I hope you can take solace in the fact you're head and shoulders above most of your peers when it comes to respecting your audience, and...

    Over 1,800 Gaming Professionals Condemn Hate Speech in Open Letter

    You're a star, I've been looking for more stuff like this, to add to my collection of the 'open-armed love and compassion' Polygon described in their article in defense of the industry. Please, allow me to add some of my own... OT: Which petition went up first, this one or Boogie's...

    Getting Famous - Who wants to be A Superstar?

    I used to want to be famous. I also used to want to be rich. Now I just want to create my art and have people enjoy it enough that I can make enough money to live off of. I don't see the point in being rich anymore because it just gives you more money to spend on shit you don't need. I...

    pictures of your pets.

    The amount of d'awwwws in this thread, so far, is unreal... Okay, I can't technically call these chaps my pets, but since I'm house-sitting for my old flatmate, fuck him, he can't stop me pimping them out. Ladies and gents, I give you Elenore, Fred & George: Sorry my stupid face had...

    Why do women like ***** characters?

    I notice you omitted the one part of my post that kind of pointed out why your question is redundant, because it essentially boils down to this: Why do people like flawed characters? This isn't some weird, undocumented thing. Ever heard of anti-heroes? They're pretty freaking popular. I...

    Why do women like ***** characters?

    Then your thread title is misleading. It should be why do some women, because right now it could imply a generalisation, regardless of your OP. Given that you admit you're not saying all women, though, I dunno what you want me to tell you? Why do people like Bane in TDKR? He's a...

    Why do women like ***** characters?

    I get the feeling that you are generalising, massively, and that the ratio of women who only like '***** characters' is probably about the same as that of men who just like meathead punchsolvers. Or to put it another way: if women only liked ***** characters then there would only be *****...

    Marvel VP Speaks Mind on Manara Spider Woman Butt Cover

    I'm just gonna copy-paste my opinion on the matter from a blog I commented on: [On the Cover, itself] This looks like one of those drawings that was originally depicting something very different and was hastily recoloured to become a superhero. If you tweaked the saturation just a tiny bit...

    What's the Point in Blind Let's Plays?

    I'm going to have to disagree entirely. If you watch Chip Cheezum's LP of MGR you'll see that personality and information can make a brilliant LP. I'd already played through all of MGR and really struggled in parts, but Chip's LP goes to insane lengths to show different strategies you can...
