Nier: Heart of Darkness made by Yoko Taro!

IIRC the chlorination syndrome was caused by maso/magic dispersed after the giant died.

Also try playing Spec Ops the Line for a similar mindfuck.

(I hate that if someone is scantily clad, particularly females and not males, then automatically it's because she's eye candy, because it doesn't at all play into her personality of being in control and a badass. Bikini armor is a common point of criticism, because it's sexy, but does that not make the character seem all the more brave for fighting with such little protection?)

Is there a chance you could link to the exact articles in news stories instead of just listing a site like gematsu as a source?
For example on this story this could link this as the source.

So uh, necro-ing this thread because I just saw the english page for this and holy shit it was really neat, though it's probably nothing new in terms of web design it came across as pre'y fuckin' cool.
also an old ass article

Was someone breathing really heavily around 33 to 34 minutes in?

I don't feel like looking to see if it was posted already, but you guys probably saw this go down already, well I just read a really insightful comment on that video.

"You should only stick with your own culture and people. When you start mixing races and culture it's bad for everyone."

Who said it?
1)my racist grandpa
2)a progressive liberal

I agree pretty much with this guy's points, but I think it's hilarious that he looks/sounds like a little Anthony Anderson and his channel is called the church of fuck you.

Calling it now, Nier is probably gonna be on steam pretty soon.
edit: Kaine's outfit (imo) fits her personality, because in Nier Replicant she's supposedly a little flirty with the protag. Plus she doesn't need armor or to be fully clothed to be badass, in fact I'd argue it makes her more so. For that matter, nier himself being *nier*ly topless looks badass too. I also have really fond memories of fishing in this game btw. :c

Keifer Sutherland, because trolling the people that wanted David Hayter

They probably don't voice much anymore (for rpg's at least, I guess) but it would be pretty cool to get interviews from any of the voice people in this game.

Late reply, my bad :c

Curious what you mean in the second to last para.
I kinda agree with the last bit, especially with respect to all that "MGTOW" bullshit which is seems to be dying (fortunately).

Then kinda tying into what both of you get into, I'm totally a feminist, but I'm not one of those stupid tumblrina "women>men" fools who "drinks male tears" or whatever the shit as much as I'm sure that [clearly mysoginistic] MGTOW movement is a bad representative of "genuine MRA issues" (when they're not taking giant shits on Anita Sarkeesian ---- again, and actually try to fight for men's quality of life....like the good feminists are)... but you know, the Internet has trouble with this, there's no shades of grey and everything comes up black and white.   Then you kinda see how stupid it is that they all can't get along and it leads to a whole bunch of dumb shit and spilt ink on message forums 'round the globe and the added irony when they both don't see how both can be very sensitive to whatever issue but still love throwing the word "overreacting" at each other without the smallest sense of introspection.

That guy was contradicting himself a teeny bit by claiming "Zeta males" aim to break out of the hierarchy but then he puts them (as an ideal) at the top of the hierarchy.
Also he sounds like he thinks women in general consciously manipulate men, sure maybe some but only a minority, though a case could be made for unconscious manipulation because of cultural/societal standards.

I agree with Skeptic (he's Canadian too!) on MGTOW: they raise pretty sound/valid/not-sexist points, and some others call themselves MGTOW but don't really get it, and happen to be actually sexist.

My biggest problems with feminism are (among feminists I've talked to about this stuff) ----
"rape culture!"- fear mongering, desensitizing, trivializing, IMO it's lessened the impact of the word rape.
double standards and female privilege- I'm probably echoing your statement about "the good feminists" to try to help men, but all the focus seems to be on infantilizing women and portraying them as constant victims, also conveniently ignoring female privileges and double standards that in some cases hurt men and women
"feminism is about equality. you don't want to be against equality do you?"- the with us or against us attitude

In fact, it could be argued that (in terms of gender, race is another story) we have so many double standards that both sides are equal in a really fucked up way.

Wil Wheaton.

His standup is decent, but he always comes across as a smug dickface with his delivery, plus his tweet that calling someone an "SJW" isn't an insult is pretty inaccurate seeing as every time I've called someone that they get pissy he called Anita Sarkeesian a hero and misrepresented notyourshield.

You've probably heard them already since they helped originate industrial metal, but for me Ministry came to mind especially in terms of lyrics and fast metal.

I don't get the love for Broad City -- it's bizarrely almost dry like The Office or Parks and Rec, I pick up on the jokes and Idunno if it's the delivery or maybe the jokes but it just doesn't click.

On the topic of missing game news outlets, I wish andriasang and its tongue-in-cheek were still around.

It's been some time since I posted a reply about the "feminism and social justice being bad words" thing, because work, life, etc. -- I should also add that I didn't intend to be accusatory or seem like an asshole, but it just happens that this subject makes me want to vent.

I came across a better(?) example of irony in regards to feminism though:
Clete Blakeman, the supposedly really hot referee at the Super Bowl this year, got women on Twitter all hot and bothered

I don't see any difference between this and men catcalling women on a street, aside from the anonymity aspect which is generally especially frowned upon in cases of harassment.

The point is that maybe social justice/feminism wouldn't have such negative connotations (and be considered 'bad words') if their supporters stayed consistent about messages they send with the people they call out regardless of race/gender/religion.
Again, not painting them as one singular entity, though across the board they do seem to have consistent apathy on certain topics judging by their apparent lack of outrage.
That's the reason I called it well-intentioned but short-sighted (IIRC, or maybe that was another post someplace else)

Social justice and feminism have become "bad words" because people are sick of the "everything is problematic" idea put out by a lot of people that support those movements.
For me personally though, I'm tired of certain things (double standards, privileges, things that disadvantage men and women) being ignored universally by feminists in favor of things like combating manspreading, polehogging, and banning the word bossy. (serious or not, that last one's pretty dumb)
I'm especially tired of buzzwords like rape culture or sexism getting thrown around to the point that they lose their meaning.

"People should learn what feminism is."
I'm also tired of anti-feminists/critics of feminism being dismissed as misogynists and stuff like gamergate or meninism (a parody) being labeled as whiny, so I suggest they find out what this pushback is actually all about.


edit: The petting minigame just comes off to me as a reeeeaaally innocuous thing similar to the way couple caress each others' faces sometimes not to get all hot and bothered but just a sign of affection, PLUS the entire "pedophilia" aspect wasn't very relevant since (afaik?) the minigame isn't very perverted.
And the thing about one-to-one translations being boring, I think everyone (at least the vast majority) of people crying foul want the game unaltered in the sense that they want it to get across everything in the script that was originally intended even if it uses an indirect translation but not going so far to change the context.

edit 2: This is a good example of the way many critics of feminism see feminism, and no they may not all be like this but it seems like an awful lot of them act this way.
