I wasn't really directing that at anybody, just got a good rant going. I don't know what there is to fight over, we can't create games of all kinds? Especially these days?

We don't need to force Japan to make games where we play girls and "enthusiastically love" thousand year old demons that just look like little boys. We can make them ourselves.  :american

Hah. There's nothing to fight over. It's just a youtube series about how female characters blow ass because they do. But of course there's always something to fight about with nerds who like the status quo or don't like her particular shade of eyeshadow.

Noticed Oscar and others were already discussing this broader topic in the Random Gaming thread so I have redirected my ignorant and incoherent ramblings there.

No worries, there are apparently ten more tropes at least that developers can lean on in their crusade against women.

Of course. No one is more victimized than them so they'd take issue with the youtubes.

I couldn't hear you over your female privilege.

That subreddit is weird. I'm reading a thread that featured a video of a woman choking out a man who had previously attacked her and most of the posts seem like some revenge fantasy where they wish they were there so they had an excuse to punch her or kick her in the face.

So to sum up the internet. It's full of people who wish there weren't societal repercussions for punching women or saying the n-word. (Edit originally had the n word but it gets auto editted lol)

I wonder how many "men's rights" people were at one time just normal, regular guys who stumble upon websites like reddit, Tom Leykis, or PUA blogs like Roissy ("the Heartiste")... then read all these horror stories about shitty people and decide "all women are like this, fuck dem bitches". I have a friend who refuses to get married/have kids because of the shit he hears on Tom Leykis.

Yeah there are plenty of scummy women (and men!) out there, but you can't paint everyone with a single brush.

Was discussing briefly with Cormacaroni the absolute lack of any good female characters in video games - with the two major categories being "absolute horror show" or "hangs out with Gordon Freeman"

Best (only?) realistic non-suck female characters I could come up with are the Longest Journey characters :  Zoe Castillo , April, Fiona and Mickey, etc etc

From reddit it seems like people who were teased by girls in adolescence and dads that lost custody battles.

There are quite a few RPG females I like.. Rita from TOV, Leanne from RoF, and both Alis/Alys from the PS series in particular.

Pathologic has good female characters! Nobody's gonna play it though, cus that game was purposefully made to be a shitty experience.

The Void (my avatar) has good female characters too, but they are all damsels in distress due to the nature of the game.

But I read the in depth analysis at RPS and a blog of people playing the Bachelor and Haruspex so I'm good.   :-[

The Devotress in Pathologic is great and also the most babelfishy. no one ever plays her. :'(

i remember that chick from PoP 2008 being entertaining but nobody else liked that shit
I liked Prince of Persia. Elika, maybe not so much. She would not shut up about her dad and his poor life choices. Plus the bitching about her ex all the time, Ahri or something. Made him sound like the end of the world. And the environmental activism, I get I get it this fills a hole in your life and gives it a purpose.

i do disagree with anita on bayonetta. bayonetta is clearly a satire of the male pornographic gaze, as bayonetta herself is represented as anything but a victim. her only problematic component is the dominatrix visual fetishism that damages that satire, but it still works: despite the male gaze, bayonetta continues to both ignore and control it, utterly unvictimized by it at any point in the game. she is a flawed but worthy example of sexual empowerment, which is a component of feminism many self-titled feminists  botch entirely when they misconstrue any female sexual presentation as victimization.

the problem with elika was how they excused her as magical. imagine the outcry if she had the same non-magical abilities as the player character, but was always just enough better to be constantly rescuing the player when he fucked up...


that would be an awesome troll game

Quote from: Castle Doctrine;49510551
I like how Drinky was able to get away with these youtube level posts. Somehow its okay because its Drinky. If anyone called Anita an xx grotesqurie, or women in general that, they'd be banned in a second and everyone would be outraged.

It's not fair, drinky. Why can't I make inflammatory posts on GAF without fearing a ban?

Drinky is a shared mod account. If you listen closely to The Cruncheons, you can tell when it's Evilore that's doing the voice and when it's duckroll.

Bayo is one of those things where she's a great character but still part of the overwhelming amount of sexualized characters so it's like FUCKIN DEVS START MAKING SOME FUCKING VARIETY.  :maf

bayonetta the game still has some serious problems, like the sex-related torture finishers that ONLY the female angels receive, and which kinda demonstrates that any feminism inherent to bayonetta's character might be entirely accidental and ultimately an unintended artifact of the extremity of kamiya's sexual domination fetish... :-(

Vid about female tropes in vidya. It got to several pages before it even dropped.

Probably but it's a decent example of a sexualized character not being inherently "bad" but becoming part of the "noise."

Oh it's a big batch of "gaming lol." Instead of actually discussing like Cruncheon and me are doing right now it's a bunch of straw men and tangential arguments about Anita.

I can't stand when people shit on Pittsburgh, just because of the old-timey reputation that its some shitty steel-town with nothing else.  Pittsburgh is one of the most prominent cities in America now, with amazing growth and a great cultural center.  Fuck, they're arranging a proposal for a 2023 Olympic games bid.

Been fapping furiously for 1 week after beeing on no-fap for 1month.
What's the difference?


- Sweating like a mothafukka
- Sweat smell bad as phuck
- I get nervous around girls
- Don't feel like I want to talk to people
- FEels good isolating
- Don't give a **** about anything in life
- No drive

Anyone else not really give 2 phucks about sex? (dead srs)
And no, I'm not a virgin. I also banged around 15 hookers from Amsterdam that were easily 8-9s/10s (again, srs) but to me it's barely better than fapping, no homo. Don't get me wrong, I would definitely bang a broad if the opportunity was given to me (and she was hot of course) but I'm not going to go out of my way or spend a shiet ton of money to do it. That's why I LOL in my head to every dweeb who spends every weekend chasing poon like that's all there is to life, endlessly going to clubs and bars and what-not, all the phukkin time. It's all the same shiet. Going out in moderation is key, don't get me wrong.... but seriously, it disgusts me how much society revolves around this shiet.


TBH, I'd rather just find one girl and connect on an emotional level rather than endlessly chase meaningless and "disappointing" tail
