Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

That 'Liberal agenda' part just seems to summarise the problems with US politics today to me - paranoid bouts of tribalism, where any different viewpoint is against the status quo of conservatives.

Colonisation - how dare this game penalise you for destroying native villages?!

Civilisation - how dare this game allow you to promote a non-Christian religion?!

Fallout - how dare this game promote the US government (Enclave) as an enemy faction?!

Etc.

Where does it end?

Crazy, crazy, crazy.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

OH they did jump on Fallout once, but it wasn't that.

It was over one of the promo images showing a destroyed house of representatives. They said it was either drawn by a terrorist or was encouraging terrorists.

Would have hated to see their reaction that in Fallout 3 the White house is just a crater. During the Bush years it would have ben seen as encouraging terrorists, now, it would have been seen as what needs otbe done.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I think video game bashing in the media has officially jumped the shark. They are bashing educational and edutainment games now? Is that really what they are reduced to? Vilifying games are part of the left biased media, saying that Typing Tutor 2 may be pushing the "liberal agenda" on your kids?

I laughed so hard when I watched this spot.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I love your stuff AE, but you can pick a harder target than Fox. :D

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I would have thought Fox News was about the only news you watched.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I love the quick shots to the overly concerned and offended women we are to assume are not paid actors.

This is about as propaganda as it gets.  The McDonalds game, really?! That game was build from the ground up to make McD's look bad, it's part of the assigned "reading" in Video Game Rhetoric, and Honors Video Game Studies (my class) here on campus.  Of course it's offensive, it's a persuasive game, but playing it off as mainstream is much easier.

My favorite part is having to manage how much trash and waste you feed the cattle in order to archive just the right mix of mutant growth without making your customers glow in the dark.

Stay classy FOX.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I kind of tuned out when he said "liberal agenda".

 

I mean, have ANY of them watched someone play Sim City? People I've seen play the games have too much fun with natural disasters. And I don't see how teaching someone a corporation should be penalized for dumping waste in a river is a bad thing.

I mean, shit, people being smug about it and green-washing aside, how is going green a bad thing? Plus most of the games mentioned are either years old or flash games, so all they did was just make these games attractive to rebellious kids.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

There's a simple way to tell if any form of media has a liberal agenda, you just need to ask: is the media in question Fox News? If no, then congratulations, you've found a liberal agenda.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I don't remember the specifics... but last I played a Sim City game I remember you can let your city drop down to about the third level of hell before you suffer any major repercussions from letting pollution run out of control. I mean, sure, the people are miserable and complain and such, but as long as you can scrape up enough taxes to build that 4x12 heavy industrial zone down the middle of your low cost housing district and cap each end with a military base, the other penalties aren't that harsh.

Don't forgetting summoning Godzilla to eat it all once your population tops the million mark. Having a hard time seeing the liberal agenda here.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

Actually, since SimCity 4 it's gotten extremely difficult to have a city over 300k people. The populace actually moves out, it's no fun.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

Thats because Progressives are so into their idealogy they cannot see out of the prism of their own way of thinking to where anything they disagree is wrong outright and if someone has a problem with that they must be troll, sad or just don't understand the big picture....or someone to laugh at

 

QUICK GET THE LOCAL LIBERAL GRAMMER NAZI have him pick at every little thing so we don't have to focus on the point which was in the message or just deflect everything and just insult and use some saul alinsky style tactics!

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

So you go off on a rant about ideology and seeing things through prisms, rather than actually saying where the "liberal agenda" is in the game, and then you're surprised that people think you're a troll?

 

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

I actually know this guy in real life and he IS a troll. He actually has pretty liberal beliefs but he likes to troll people on the Internet by pretending he is a hard line, la-di-da right winger.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

That works?

 

I thought that, by now, everyone with at least three functional brain cells would've long ago tuned out anything showing even remotely on the Poe's Law meter.

It's just too blatant.

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

He doesn't know me in real life everyone knows I am a conservative in one of the most liberal cities in the United States I love it when I just say I told you so look at all these responses and instead of responding to the statement I just see hehe and giggles and a deflection of anything I said hmmm which of the rules of radicals was followed here

Re: Video: Your Mom Hates Fox News Too

Whether Shahab is telling the truth or not, you still aren't setting us straight on where you see the liberal agenda in that example.  So, one way or another, you ARE trolling, its a simple fact.

Traditionally, trolls have tried to garner an emotional response, but these days its seems all a troll needs to be considered successful is for people to actually reply.  Sad times.

TechnogeekApparently, this was the first SSB tournament to actually be sponsored by Nintendo; the upcoming Wii U title Splatoon was even going to be demoed there.01/30/2015 - 7:29pm
TechnogeekMore "game" related than "politics" related, but still noteworthy: the Apex 2015 Super Smash Brothers tournament was forced to relocate after the fire marshal demanded an evacuation due to building damage caused by the recent winter storm.01/30/2015 - 7:28pm
Wonderkarpgot my Reading Rainbow kickstarter rewards....I cant tell if this is a sticker or a bumper sticker.01/30/2015 - 5:38pm
Goth_SkunkAs such, the first playthrough is always going to be the most evocative.01/30/2015 - 3:47pm
Goth_SkunkSo while branching storyline is hallmarked as a feature of the game, the storyline never stays branched for too long. There is a linear story that may branch at points, but each branch always comes right back to the main line further down the road.01/30/2015 - 3:46pm
Goth_SkunkMy biggest gripe about it though would have to be that its replay value sucks. I quickly learned that apart from a few key decisions you make, most choices end up not being relevant because something terrible happens anyway.01/30/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkI *love* The Walking Dead. Like I said, I played Season 1 through in one go, and subsequently pre-purchased Season 2 in its entirety sight-unseen.01/30/2015 - 3:43pm
Andrew EisenBy the by, I take it you're a fan of Telltale's Walking Dead? I'm one of the very few who really doesn't like it. Bums me out.01/30/2015 - 3:39pm
Andrew EisenI think we're safe with stuff like Life is Strange, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and TellTale's games. I was thinking more along the lines of D4. It's genuinely up in the air whether we'll get a conclusion to that story or not.01/30/2015 - 3:33pm
Goth_SkunkUltimately, from this potentially ignorant perspective, it's the gamer who assumes the risk, not the developer. I don't approve. Fortunately, I'm only paying $5 (CDN, no less), so that's money I can easily write off if I'm disappointed.01/30/2015 - 3:32pm
Goth_SkunkIf I'm wrong, and the unthinkable should happen where the developer ends up aborting production of the rest of the episodes, bundle purchasers would be understandably upset. Even moreso if attempting to get a refund turns out to be a hassle.01/30/2015 - 3:30pm
Goth_SkunkThere is an option on XBL to purchase all episodes in a bundle. Pay full price now, get the rest of the episodes as they're released. I would like to think this means that the other episodes are in fact done and ready.01/30/2015 - 3:29pm
Andrew EisenCatch 22 sometimes. Some gamers don't want to buy it if there's no guarantee the whole thing will come out and the whole thing can't come out unless enough people buy the early installments.01/30/2015 - 3:17pm
Goth_SkunkI sincerely hope this trend towards episodic games is not done so because the developer only had enough capital to produce the first 1/5th of the story and is banking on making enough money from the sales of that fifth to produce the rest.01/30/2015 - 3:16pm
Goth_SkunkThat being said, I want to try Life is Strange to get my feet wet.01/30/2015 - 3:13pm
Andrew EisenI'm that way too. I'll wait until the whole thing is out. Same goes for DVDs of TV shows. I'll wait for the season set.01/30/2015 - 3:13pm
Goth_SkunkIf an episodic game is really good, and the time between episodes is more than a week, I'm more inclined to wait for the rest of the episodes to all come out than to try playing it episode by episode at launch date.01/30/2015 - 3:12pm
Goth_SkunkAs someone who played through TWD Season 1 entirely in one day, and then played Season 2 episode by episode when they each came out, I strongly agree with this sentiment.01/30/2015 - 3:11pm
