YAY Gamepolitics! Let's show them how biased we can truely be! Remember we only post things about vile Republicans no one dares to speak ill of their lord and savior here Barrack Obama who is god

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hate to break it to you, but it is GP's right to be as biased or not as they want. Besides, it is a fact that a higher percentage of people reading this tend to swing liberal, regardless of whether it has to do with Age, Education, Location, or whatever. If you don't like it, don't read.

I, for one, don't listen to or read anything by Fox News, because of thier rediculous conservative bias, not to mention, they are on the bottom rung with regards to how they represent Video Games.

Anyways, I also wanted to point out that your posts practically OOZE with ignorance and stupidity. They kind of have a "Hannity and Limbaugh said this so it must be true!" vibe. There's a reason the country is in the process of moving left, and you are a perfect example of why.

I can't wait until Nov. 4th Rolls around and your "Maverick" and his Woman are put in thier place by the American People. It's about time, too, considering America has been SO far behind the rest of the Western World with regard to Health Care, Economics, Social Policies, and Ethics. It's no wonder Europe thinks our country is nothing but ignorant rednecks..

I hate Barack Obama's love of gun control and I know I'm not the only here that does so. Although if you know of a flash game that makes fun of Obama or a machima vidoe let us know and it'll probably be posted (in fact I wanna see some Obama bashing from someone other than Mad Magazine).

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Yee-haw!  Let's put the Republicans back in so we can all keep our guns.  They'll come in real handy too when the economy REALLY goes down the crapper after a couple more years of the same failed policies, and we're left to fight over the last remaining fuel for our SUVs.

Yeeeeee-hawwwww!

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Remember kids it's Ok to engage in stereotypes if the other guy has a different opinion than you do.

For the record I still am not sure who I'm going to vote for.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Is it just me, or do most gamers lean toward the Democratic party?

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

People under the age of 35 tend to vote more Democratic whereas those over 35 tend to vote more Republican. I'm sure you know that most gamers under the age of 35.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

And majority of the world too.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hilarious! And full of that delicious political satire we've all come to love. I'm getting hungry for 'more of the same' goodness just through watching! XD

Game on, brothers and sisters.

Matthew Wilson@AE I think the first dragon age did it the best. the person you played was treated differently based class,race, and gender. if the npc are going to act like 2015, you should just set the game in 2015 and add magic and dragons.04/01/2015 - 1:23am
E. Zachary KnightYeah, the PS3. My son paid for the Steampunk Texture Pack and it would not work at all. No matter what I did, it wouldn't allow us to save.03/31/2015 - 10:56pm
Sora-ChanConsole version?03/31/2015 - 10:40pm
E. Zachary KnightSo, Mojang has been selling a broken texture pack for Minecraft since at least Dec. 2014 and it hasn't been fixed yet.03/31/2015 - 10:30pm
Andrew EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
Sora-ChanCon't. Games like AC are a pain to someone like me who likes to play games in order. So when a game gets too many releases too quickly, it puts me off. Only exceptions are games that have no interconnected underlying stories like the FF games.03/31/2015 - 2:53pm
Sora-ChanWikipedia has rarely let me down on matters like this. But yeah... AC needs a break.. like two.. or three... or eight years.03/31/2015 - 2:51pm
ConsterThere's 9 already?! I think I played 1, 2, and the ones inbetween 2 and 3.03/31/2015 - 2:23pm
Sora-ChanCon't There are now Nine... of just the main entries into the series. There are 13 more in the "other games" department.03/31/2015 - 2:15pm
Sora-ChanI tried to get into AC. Was having a decent time with the first one, at which point they had already released three titles. Then a fourth came out... then a fifth... the wall kept growing before I could finish the first.03/31/2015 - 2:14pm
Daniel LewisI think ubisoft should give AC a break before it's milked to death,and i'm a big fan of the games03/31/2015 - 1:15pm
PHX Corphttp://www.polygon.com/2015/3/31/8320017/assassins-creed-chronicles-china-india-russia Assassin's Creed Chronicles is now a trilogy, goes to China, India and Russia03/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Daniel LewisThe only thing said i disagree with is the final quote on Men's experiences are seen to be universal but women are gendered,though doesn't anita say that games with male protagonists are male power fantasies,so in turn both are gendered03/31/2015 - 1:08pm
Daniel Lewisi found the video to be much better than any of the TvW series and it's about time the positive women are put in the spotlight03/31/2015 - 1:06pm
