okay let me be clear about this no matter what the @benjisales alter says, the @benjipwns alter is different

Halo was super late to the game, especially for Single Player FPS by almost a decade, I never played the thing online because why would I play a two year old console port online when Day of Defeat is out, and BF1942 and even Call of Duty and UT... and Halo in any way? Halo?!? What about DOOM?!? OR CHEX QUEST.

Final Fantasy "discovering" RPGs? Okay, like maybe because it's not like 1990 was awash in the things, though it was Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger that forever convinced me the genre wasn't total wank. I admittingly was quite late to PC RPGs, especially the beloved Slavchunk genre.

Mario? Like duh, it's fucking Mario. Donkey Kong lol, I assume that means DKC and even though I beat that shit 100% I'm on Oscar's side (r.i.p. in pieces). Crash? CRASH?!? Come on son.

Spyro was my jam though when it came out, until the third game which was still pretty okay. First 3D platformer than I didn't have issues with.

We should be talking about GUNSTAR HEROES the only game Dave Halverston was ever right about. Or the original Super Mario Kart. Or Link's Awakening. EGA Trek. Civ. CIVVVVVVVVV. Before we ever get to DKC, or CRASH, or Halo, even Spyro in any kind of list of games as a kid.

This is why @benjisales lost three followers.

I'm still waiting for someone, anyone, to explain WTF institutional racism is.

Do you want the sociological hypothesis, or the dunning-kruger era take?

Exactly what it says on the box.

The racism is embedded in the institutions of a society, the state, the government, corporations, the police, etc. It's not necessarily embedded in the society itself. In other words, a dude you meet on the street may not be racist towards you, and may even be your friend, but when he goes to work the policies and practices of the institution may be racist against you and he follows them there.

ResetERA.com uses it to mean any perceived racism, like they did on NeoGAF.com, because they're stupid. Multiple times I got in arguments on NeoGAF.com (not the current version with JordanN) where people would claim that targeting institutional racism for elimination such as rolling back voting restrictions, property ownership restrictions, clearing out government agencies/police forces of racist practices, etc. was far less important than being able to sue a restaurant for not letting you sit at the counter.

Reeee too often confuses institutional racism for normal everyday problems faced by poor people.

It just so happens that in places like the US and the UK and Australia, you know, rich, white majority countries with high levels of immigration, that there are certain institutional practices that exclude minorities because of their general lower levels of education (NOT IQ JordanN you racist cunt). For example, access to white collar employment.


Class is far more of a factor in the inequality than race. But, because the "leftists" of REEE have completely lost sight of the whole struggle of the working classes thing, they must forcefeed their identity politics onto absolutely everything, making this age-old issue into an issue of race.

I am curious. What “political bullshit” is hijacking movies lately?

As you almost exclusively only hear people make that claim when talking about “forced diversity” or outward feminism/“social justice” in blockbusters.
That’s exactly what I’m talking about. People bitching about “forced diversity” in shit and then turning the conversation about the quality of a film into some fight between the “alt-right” and “SJWs.” I don’t give a fuck about this feud. I think more representation is a good thing, also it doesn’t in and of itself make a film good. But if you point out that you like one of these “controversial” films you get called a giant dad, or conversely if you say you don’t like something like the Ghostbusters remake you see indignant responses like some in this thread.

I really don’t care about all that. The ghostbusters reboot sucked. The Last Jedi had a dumb plot and that stupid marvel humor I hate, and the only redeeming quality *was* its characters! I liked purple hair lady. So I’m glad there’s more representation, and it’s a shame film quality hasn’t kept up IMO. But if you dare say something bad about these films lately it’s like oh so you’re a bigot? No man it’s just not a good movie.


Banning this guy proved his point so fucking hard

Even with that example i feel like MH handles the armor better than most other games.
It does.

Actually this thread has already annoyed me. Why? Because the majority of the Monster Hunter World female armor sets show next to zero skin. Outside of the Nergigante and Anjanath, all female sets that show skin in any meaningful way are the same for men. See the Dober/Bone sets to see what I mean.

It's definitely a thing throughout the series, but not as common as OP and some of the responses in here suggest.

Yeah, it's always been disappointing. Mainly because there are actually good looking female armors in there too. Like, they're aware how armors are supposed to work by designing both male and female armors similarly in a lot of designs, but at the same time they just can't resist to throw some fan service armors too in some other designs. It's inconsistent.

There's no visual options in MH, except a few event cover-ups in World. You take what you get for your desired stats, but that also goes for more than enough dumb looking male armor.

which doesn’t include this for example.

They're not exactly making a moot point, but something tells me that if a bunch of rich European kings bought up a ton of works of art from a developing country for a pittance, they wouldn't just be like "oh, this is fine."  What they really are interested in is having the native peoples' work be represented in the native peoples' lands...not if it was bought and sold in a legal transaction.  IIRC there was a thread where some famous Southern Pacific Island works were bought by some archeologist for basically nothing, and that pissed them off.

Wow so ISIS operates in small locales in a tiny handful of countries around the world so now we never have to return Koh-i-Noor diamonds stolen by the British Raj to Indian government. What?
According to his diary, it was acquired by Alauddin Khalji, second ruler of the Khalji dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate, when he invaded the kingdoms of southern India at the beginning of the 14th century and was probably in the possession of Kakatiya dynasty.[17] It later passed to succeeding dynasties of the Sultanate, and Babur received the diamond in 1526 as a tribute for his conquest of Delhi and Agra at the Battle of Panipat.[14]
so why are we giving it to the Indian government instead of the Katatiya dynasty's descendants?

Following the 1739 invasion of Delhi by Nadir Shah, the Afsharid Shah of Persia, the treasury of the Mughal Empire was looted by his army in an organised and thorough acquisition of the Mughal nobility's wealth.[22] Along with millions of rupees and an assortment of historic jewels, the Shah also carried away the Koh-i-Noor.[23] He exclaimed Koh-i-Noor!, Persian for "Mountain of Light", when he obtained the famous stone.[24] One of his consorts said, "If a strong man were to throw four stones – one north, one south, one east, one west, and a fifth stone up into the air – and if the space between them were to be filled with gold, all would not equal the value of the Koh-i-Noor".[25]

After Nadir Shah was killed and his empire collapsed in 1747, the Koh-i-Noor fell to his grandson, who in 1751 gave it to Ahmad Shah Durrani, founder of the Afghan Empire, in return for his support.[23] One of Ahmed's descendants, Shuja Shah Durrani, wore a bracelet containing the Koh-i-Noor on the occasion of Mountstuart Elphinstone's visit to Peshawar in 1808.[26] A year later, Shujah formed an alliance with the United Kingdom to help defend against a possible invasion of Afghanistan by Russia.[27] He was quickly overthrown, but fled with the diamond to Lahore, where Ranjit Singh, founder of the Sikh Empire, in return for his hospitality, insisted upon the gem being given to him, and he took possession of it in 1813.[22]

Its new owner, Ranjit Singh, willed the diamond to the East India Company-administered Hindu Jagannath Temple in Puri, in modern-day Odisha, India.[28] However, after his death in 1839, his will was not executed.[29] On 29 March 1849, following the conclusion of the Second Anglo-Sikh War, the Kingdom of Punjab was formally annexed to Company rule, and the Last Treaty of Lahore was signed, officially ceding the Koh-i-Noor to Queen Victoria and the Maharaja's other assets to the company. Article III of the treaty read: "The gem called the Koh-i-Noor, which was taken from Shah Sooja-ool-moolk by Maharajah Ranjeet Singh, shall be surrendered by the Maharajah of Lahore to the Queen of England".[30]
sounds like a legal transfer to me?

a lot of shit that's on display is loaned anyway, if the successor state got it back they'd probably box it up somewhere if they didn't have a suitable location to display it, or they might just loan it back to the museum that's currently holding it

a lot of artifact ownership would be what ResetERA.com considers "non-profit" anyway

Yeah, that's the thread I'm talking about.  Beyond what you mentioned, within that thread there was a unanimous disdain for some ancient archaeologist who bought up a ton of now recognizable art from some small island nation.  They're full of shit when they say it's about buying/selling.  They want people to have their art represented by the people who made it...which is reasonable, but at least be honest about it.

ideally, Disney would just buy everything and put it on display at their theme parks

It's 2019. Imagine getting that hot and bothered about fucking Bond. You just know that fucker's first experience of Bond was Goldeneye (the game, not the film).


But....Brosnan had a black Bond girl in 2002. And Moore had one in 1973 and again in 1985.  And Connery had one in 1971. And current Moneypenny is black. And the template of iconic Bond songs is from a powerful black woman's voice. And multiple other songs have been sung by powerful black female voices.

Man, even the resetera users are tired of RedMercury's bullshit.  :lol

...You read one post. My first post in the thread said it sounded rude. I said that us as men should get our house in order before targeting women, consistent with my position here. disagreed with the assertion that it was inherently malicious and men were getting nothing out of the deal or being "tricked" as they are initially owed nothing. I do not believe women are sharing meals with people they absolutely despise.

Again, if you want to relitigate that thread, we can do so in that thread, where there is proper context to have the discussion rather than sharing out of context quotes as some sort of "gotcha" between two entirely separate scenarios.

PROPER CONTEXT. Like telling a user to go off himself because he checked their post history and wasn't worth saving his life.

We have threads on ResetEra where majority of the people refuse to call out their own racist family members. These are the same people who claim to be allies, do you really think they give a fuck about minorities if they can’t even do the bare minimum. Do you really think the world can change if people are to chickenshit to actually help it change?

Calling someone a backwater hick who fucks his cousin could be construed as racist against southern whites. But who the hell cares?

I'm still waiting for someone, anyone, to explain WTF institutional racism is.

I'm trying to find what Nepenthe post this guy was quoting here:

"I think whites are subhuman filth that should be forcibly aborted ."

Seems pretty racist to me.

I will not respect your taste in games if you don’t list at least one overly ambitious Eastern European jankfest.

Aside from The Witcher, "overly ambitious" is really the last thing I'd call Eastern European games. Everyone that I've seen seems to be cut from the same generic fantasy cloth, but I'd be interested in hearing some examples.

White Gold and its predecessor (Boiling Point ?) are pseudo-realistic FPS-RPG with large maps and a ton of writing involved. Think proto-Far Cry 2 with factions. It's massively flawed and doesn't have the means of its ambition but there's enough there that it gained a mini-cult status as.a YouTube video subject. See for instance :

Is vice versa acceptable then? Let say a white person has been robbed/raped/abused is it OK to distrust black people then?

If not acceptable, why? What is the difference? Since it is personal anecdotes.
I mean, if the majority of white people got robbed almost daily by black people then we could start talking about the resentment and distrust caused by systemic black robbery.

I mean... the propensity for american police to be more trigger happy with one group than another is skewed heavily by the fact they get shot at by one group more often than another, but I don't see anyone being able to make that claim in an era thread about police brutality without getting dogpiled and banned

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a great Euro jank game as well.
