Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Hahaha!  I thought the same thing except Baraka Obama Vs. John McKano XD

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

I would have went for John McKano myself, I think Kano is a little closer to McCain than Cage but I guess its a tossup given that his first name is John....

SOLIDUS!!!!!

Fuck that! You give me John McCain as Solidus Snake, then I'll be impressed!

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

As slow as the weekend may be, it's still nice to get a humorous update like this every once in awhile. I think so, anyway.

Being a regular reader of Dueling Analogs, I already saw this... but I still think it's funny; Steve Napeirski was right about not being the only to think "Baraka" upon hearing Obama's name. Now if only he had those arm blades...

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Yep, it's a slow day. But can you blame GP? It's the weekend, nothing big happens in the weekend that effects gaming, we wait for our workdays from Monday to Friday to get the stories rolling. Damn weekends...

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Saw it a while ago. Slow day is awesomely slow.

JACK!

Maybe Jack will post an unrelated comment that offends everybody. That'll liven things up.

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Umm guys, that's not Baraka they put Obama's head on its Maskless Sub-Zero

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

There's another little problem with that, namely the fact that Sub-Zero wears... what's it called...

oh yeah. BLUE.

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

Note the blades protrudting from the forearms and the lack of blue o nthe uniform. It's Baraka.

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

As soon has i heard Barack i thought Baraka

MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!!!

Totally! And they're so simillar, I mean, they both have amazing skill in Pencack Silat, and they both have deadly blades that pop out of their arms!

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

AWESOME! I was hoping someone would do Baraka Obama!

Papa MidnightJames, I say this as a person who has managed a gaming press website before: This article is horrendous sensationalism: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/09/17/Exposed-the-secret-mailing-list-of-the-gaming-journalism-elite09/18/2014 - 12:41pm
Krono@james I never said you did. I was responding to Andrew's statement that he'd seen a mere two articles suggesting that the term gamer was tainted, by pointing him to a list of the articles that were more or less the orgin of the idea.09/18/2014 - 12:09pm
E. Zachary KnightBut james, you replied to my tweet when I tweeted about one of those articles. That is basically the same thing as writing an editorial on GP in support of it. ;)09/18/2014 - 12:04pm
james_fudgeNot only did we not write one, we didn't cover any of them either.09/18/2014 - 11:46am
KronoThe underlying suggestion most of the articles had that gamers supporting the issue were just the young men stereotype pissed off a lot of people, and sparked the #NotYourShield tag09/18/2014 - 9:41am
Krono@andrew Just two? The whole reason #GamerGate gained real traction was that 9 op-eds including arguments to that effect dropped in 24 hours: http://markdownshare.com/view/a524affd-e679-40be-8aa1-72058065dc2a09/18/2014 - 9:38am

james_fudgeThis what they really think of us: http://www.donotlink.com/framed?54192709/18/2014 - 9:10am
ConsterAh yes, nothing quite says "I take offense to being associated with an awful few" like siding with said awful few.09/18/2014 - 9:07am
Michael ChandraSo be smart, and if you want to be part of the good guys, separate yourself from the bad guys. Don't attack those upset you won't.09/18/2014 - 6:30am
Michael ChandraMeanwhile, Gamergate is tainted and wise people already use a different tag to defend decent arguments. Keeping it up is like going #KKK while arguing about PoC.09/18/2014 - 6:30am
Michael ChandraSo while claiming to be unfairly attacked for the actions of a selected few, you unfairly attack an entire crowd for the actions of a selected few? #notagamer #butahater09/18/2014 - 6:30am
james_fudgeQuiknkold: Let me ask you- how many of those 'gamers are dead' articles did you see here? Because apparently i'm part of some vast conspiracy.09/18/2014 - 5:18am
NeenekoAh, that old straw man. That is one of the ironies about the discussion, the whole point is showing how good people can still have problems with sexism and not realize it.09/17/2014 - 9:11pm
Andrew EisenYes, there have been a handful of op-eds suggesting that the term “gamer” has become tainted (two that I know of) but that’s the opinion of only a few. I've seen an equal number from those who disagree.09/17/2014 - 8:55pm
Andrew EisenExcept, you haven't provided a single example of a site that’s actually calling gamers a "collective of Sexist White Bigoted Basement Dwelling Manchildren."09/17/2014 - 8:55pm
TechnogeekIf you want to make the stereotype of gamers less painful, try calling people out when they do bad shit rather than handwave it away as "not all gamers". Even if it is a few bad apples, that'll still more than enough to spoil the barrel.09/17/2014 - 8:53pm
quiknkoldI'm not going to Sell Gamergate anymore. It can sell itself. But I will sell the integrity of the Gamer. That we are still good people, who create and donate to charitys, Who engage with those around us and just want to have a good time.09/17/2014 - 7:35pm
