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!

Re: Fun Graphic: Electoral Kombat

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
ZippyDSMleeI do not hate them jsut think its mostly hyperlobe.08/29/2014 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - I'd say that's likely. From my experience, most who have a problem with Sarkeesian's videos either want to hate them in the first place (for whatever reason) or honestly misunderstand what they're about and what they're saying.08/29/2014 - 3:16pm
james_fudgeWe appreciate your support :)08/29/2014 - 2:55pm
TechnogeekIt gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, the gaming community is not statistically indistinguishable from consisting entirely of people that your average Xbox Live caricature would look at and go "maybe you should tone it down a little bit".08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
TechnogeekI just want to say that while I've disagreed with the staff of this site on several occasions, it's still good to see that they're not automatically dismissing Anita's videos as a "misandrist scam" or whatever the preferred dismissive term is these days.08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, So you can't find even one?08/29/2014 - 1:04pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Right because shes prefect and never exaggerates... *rolls eyes*08/29/2014 - 12:53pm
SleakerAnd honestly, nearly all of the games she references, or images she depicts I've always cringed at and wondered why they were included in games to begin with, from pinups through explicit sexual depictions or direct abuse. I think it's cheap storytelling.08/29/2014 - 12:35pm
Sleaker@AE - aren't most people fundamentally misunderstanding her at this point? haha.. On a related note I think a lot of the backlash is coming from males that think she is telling them their 'Generic Male Fantasy' is bad and wrong.08/29/2014 - 12:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd no, I don't think the female community would be upset over the performance of a case study in and of itself. Possibly the mostivations behind such a study, the methodology or conclusions but not the mere idea of a case study.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
Andrew EisenAmusingly, these videos aren't saying you can't/shouldn't use tropes or that sexual representations are inherently problematic so those are very silly things to have a problem with and indicate a fundamental misunderstanding of the series.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
SleakerDo you think the female community would get extremely angry over a male doing a case study on the negative impact of sex-novels and their unrealistic depiction of males and how widespread they are in american culture?08/29/2014 - 12:25pm
SleakerThe other thing that people might find problematic is that they see no problem with sexual representations of females (or males) in games. And realistically, why is there anything wrong with sexual representations in fiction?08/29/2014 - 12:24pm
SleakerTo even discuss or bring up these issues at a cultural level to begin with. Going straight for games to many probably feels like a huge overstepping given that it's interactive story in many cases, and when you're telling a story why can't you use tropes.08/29/2014 - 12:21pm
SleakerI think a large part of the controversy stems from the idea that games aren't culture setters, but culture reactors, and simply depict what is already in culture. So people don't care that games use tropes or are blind to them because we've failed ...08/29/2014 - 12:20pm
