“What is the controversy”
” basically it’s
“”muh” is actually a necessary word; if it was “their women” then it’d have no power at all, cause who the fuck cares about their women unless they’re imminently to join “muh” women?
that being said for whatever reason all women seem to automatically be in the “muh” category, which is funny because Elliot Rodger & co. it gets even funnier once you start to figure out which women are and aren’t “muh” and then take a second look at “controversies”.”
“Amen, and therein lies the crux of the issue, even if Ubisoft caved into their demands and added a female character, if she so much as looks “sexist” the feminists will re-initiate the crusade until she basically looks like a muslim veiled woman.
If Ubisoft add a female character and she’s good looking, then its win-win for us as far as I’m concerned.
In fact Ubisoft should release a female and have her in the most revealing and sexy clothing with breasts practically showing and declare “here’s your female character, now fuck off”
Shit that would be great.”

“I think judgment of whether a game is good or not is meaningless.”
“I disagree. Some games are better some are worse.”

“Granted a discussion of game mechanics probably isn’t interesting to people not interested in game design, but that doesn’t mean anything because most people don’t want arguments or reasoning about anything anyways. Yet certain games do well and others don’t, and there’s a pattern that I can point out. If you lose interest while I am explaining doesn’t that say more about you than the validity of my arguments?”
“To clarify: the important criticism here is not that the multimillion dollar CME industry is a gigantic money making scam, something on the level of the 15th century sale of indulgences, because to say that would be actually to defend that very system: the money is a diversion, a patsy, what is corrupt about CME isn’t the money but, as the default mechanism for continuing education, it subverts its own purpose. It reduces the interest in actual education so that it can pretend that it explicitly monitors it. If you have a minute to spend on your “education,” the system pushes you towards CME. “Why not do both?” Why do both, who can do both? There are only 24 hours in a day. In other words, the system doesn’t just fail, it forces failure.”
“The force for this change isn’t coming from safety or ethics. Neither is it activism. If you see any group advocating influentially for change in a media they don’t own or control, you can double down and split the 10s, the dealer is holding status and quo. No change is possible on someone else’s dime, and if what looks like a supermodel approaches you with a microphone and a camera crew, you should run like she’s Johnny Carcosa. On occasion what the activists think they want may happen coincidentally to align with what the system wants, and from that moment on they will be lead to believe they are making a difference, which means they’re making money for someone else.”
“”Cyberbullying is a huge problem!” Yes, but not because it is hurtful, HA! no one cares about your feelings– but because criticism makes women want to be more private– and the privacy of the women is bad. The women have to be online, they do most of the clicking and receive most of the clicks. Anonymous cyberbullying is a barrier to increasing consumption, it’s gotta go.”

When they pay you that much they’re not paying you to write for them, they’re paying you not to write for anyone else, that’s called controlling the capital.”
“Every woman has some version of this story, with one important difference: Amy was a medical student, which meant a lot of money went into her and a lot of money was expected of her. One (1) phone call from the Dean to a phone number that was not 911 and that guy was evaporated. Two cops located him minding his own business, and because he defended himself with the magic words– and you should write these down, they’re gold– “it’s a public street, I have a right to be here”– he was jailed for eight months for harassment and resisting arrest– pre-trial. Pre means without. Of course his case was ultimately dismissed.”
“Sometimes the structural imbalances go your way, and sometimes they don’t, better figure out who makes the scales.”
“So the system encourages women like Hess to “critique the patriarchy” or “bring awareness” because it stands no chance of moving the money, let alone the power, and also the media gets a cut. Meanwhile men all over the place are left questioning why their opportunities are just as limited but their answer can’t be a glass ceiling. “Maybe it’s reverse sexism!” Maybe your media is no different than her media, we’ll see what kind of sexism there is when the robots replace all of you. What is both obscene and astonishing in its power is that this distraction is foisted on Millennials by other Millennials, they’re fighting for the other team, precisely because the immensely hard work of work can be avoided by hoping the problem is sexism. Hess is frantically fighting against– whom? Cyberbullies? Frat guys? Stand up comedians? What are the results she expects from this fight? The fight is a symptom of neurosis, frantic energy as a defense against impotence, frantic energy as a defense against change. “Why am I in the top 20% of intelligence but I’m running the register at a store whose products I can’t afford?” Because trolls are preventing women from earning a living online? “So it’s Reddit’s fault!””

The question is not how did we learn to get over that prejudice, but rather what purpose did it serve in the first place, why was it the preferred expression of hate of that time?”

Manipulation, misinformation, appealing to the general public’s constant desire to have their existence validated and be told they’re good people and their knee-jerk reactions to prove these things. They want control over the public with misrepresentation and control over companies with political correctness.

“It’s not about making a character attractive, it is about sexual objectification. I’m not surprised that you are too stupid to deal with the real arguments that feminists make, so let me spell it out for you. Feminists don’t think all female characters should be “ugly”, they simply think that female characters shouldn’t be turned into and portrayed as fetish objects. The Witcher is very guilty in that respect. Even Triss, who is supposedly a strong female character, needs Geralt to save her and then wants to fuck him because he is a manly man who helped her.”
I don’t think this is a thing that actually exists.
>hey simply think that female characters shouldn’t be turned into and portrayed as fetish objects
This is impossible, considering the innumerable amount of fetishes in the world.
>Even Triss, who is supposedly a strong female character, needs Geralt to save her and then wants to fuck him because he is a manly man who helped her.
Strange how nobody ever complains when a male character needs help from others. Of course, men understand perfectly well that no man is an island. How do you think militaries work, for example?”

“Despite muh 60% or whatever, females don’t buy singleplayer games, they play social games on facebook. And the few females who do buy singleplayer games don’t care about tits either, or maybe they even like it.
Not every girl is automatically a prude SJW. Normal girls like to feel sexy and like to see women portrayed in a positive and sexy light. It is only the most dried up bitter cunts that have a problem with female sexuality. This is also why I don’t worry about this, they are in a extreme minority and will never win simply because they don’t have the numbers.

The most arrogant string of words I’ve ever read.
“We” who? “Still”, as in it’ll stop at some point? How long has it been progressing, at what rate, and why is it called progress? Which “society”? If you know so much about history and the direction of human civilization to be able to give an overall diagnosis not only on what it’ll be doing, how it’ll be doing it, but at what kind of rate it’ll get there at, what’s this garbage talk about “hoping” that “we” (who?) will “understand”? Shouldn’t you know what’s going to happen based off of all your god-level knowledge, or are you too dumb to figure it out?
Or maybe you’re just pulling shit out your ass?”
“In reality the ‘feminist movement’ in videogames is just publishers trying to make an easy buck off of stupid humans, as humans are apt to do.”
“Other than maybe being in bad taste, what exactly is wrong with having scantily clad women in video games?
Sure, I’d like more well-written female characters that are more than just eye candy, but what exactly is wrong with eye candy?”
The issue comes from the fact that if a woman is eye candy, some (for example SJW) see this as that character’s only trait. So if a woman is scantily clad or otherwise “lewd”, these people think of this character as not only shallow, but also as a tool by the people who created this character as nothing but eye candy. The problem with this logic is that for example Bayonetta is definitely a lewd ay ay ay mami, but that doesn’t mean she’s an emptyheaded bimbo or that her looks only serve as fap-material. There’s also another opinion that these people also have, and it seems like they change between them at will, and that’s that women are stron(k)g and independynt and don’t need no man, so of course a woman can be scantily clad and have sex with whomever she wants, BUT there’s nothing wrong with this because she’s, like I said, a stron(k)g woman. A woman decides what she’ll do with her body, not just appearance-wise but also physically.
So on one hand these people see scantily clad women, in for example video games, as something “bad” because they themselves make the connection to the creator and how this person supposedly makes a “fool” out of this female character and that she’s nothing but her looks; and then on the other hand, they also believe that women should be empowered and do what they want because they are equal to men, sometimes better, so if a woman is good looking and a sex-bomb, it’s good.
“This post has an interesting point in terms of once a character has been “objectified,” by their sexiness anything else about them seems to be ignored. This is why Samus has gotten so much shit since she got the Zero suit even though she’s still a great character.
I always thought the girls in the Dead or Alive series were cool because they’re the most active and most important characters in the story. They don’t rely on men to solve their problems for them, they don’t passively sit around and wait for their issues to get resolved by someone else, they get in there and do fisticuffs until they get what they want. But most people don’t notice that compared to THE BOOB PHYSICS and THE SLUTTY COSTUMES and THE VOLLEYBALL SPINOFF and that bums me out.”
“>According to this developer, there is ”definitely a lot of push coming from publishers to not make the experience so different on consoles as to alienate people in to that next generation isn’t as powerful as PC.”
>In reference to The Division, the anonymous source went on to explain how the team is already downgrading the game’s graphics: “Right now we already took out quite a lot of screen space reflections from the game and are working on asset management as best as we can given the consoles unified memory.”
>Despite all of this though, apparently the PC is still the lead platform, Ubisoft just won’t let us use our hardware to its full potential: “Yes, the lead platform is PC but we simply cannot have such a big gap.””
“So is Ubisoft going to gimp their PC games for the rest of this generation?”
“Well seeing as how they gimped their PC games for all of last generation…”
“You don’t get it do you? It’s ALL intentional. The “lazy porting” is intentional. Devs don’t want consoletards to cry and shit their diapers when they find out that their consoles can’t even do PC’s low settings.
And it’s not just Ubisoft, it’s every publisher. Ever wonder why for the last five years the difference between “very low” and “ultra” settings on PC is virtually unnoticeable? It’s because they ARE the same fucking settings. Devs have to tone down everything so that there’s no controversy about why PC gets amazing graphics and consoles get shit. But they still need to keep hardware companies happy, so they intentionally unoptimize the game so that you still need a GTX890 to run a game that should be able to be maxed out with a GTX480.”
“Well, the ironic thing is that the new consoles are SO weak that a lot of console players may lose interest/refuse to upgrade since the graphics aren’t much better on PS4/XBone despite the fact that devs are saying they’ve already hit the ceiling on what they can do with those consoles. The consoles are so weak that it’s likely that even fucking tablets (and eventually even phones) will surpass them in power in the not too distant future. Also, unless the consoles see a large price within the next year, it will be possible to buy a gaming PC on par with a PS4/XBone for just as much as, if not less than the cost of a console.
What’s going to happen is that either the console makers are all going to have to release new, much more powerful consoles within the next 2-3 years (unlikely, too expensive to rush R&D especially when they wouldn’t have even recouped their sink costs for the current generation) or people are going to start fleeing to PC, most likely in the form of Steam Machines. The flight to PC isn’t actually too unrealistic; it was already in the last 2 years of last gen, and it’s still happening now to a lesser extent.”

“>They buy every cinematic AAA shooty/murder game, then they trade it in towards the next one.
Which is, when you think about it, the perfect business model for publishers. They release AAA piece of shit, the console kids buy it day 1 for full price, and then when they realize it’s crap they just sell it back to Gamestop. Publisher makes tons of money, no one holds them accountable for quality or forces them to change, and the industry gets worse every year.”
“They never ‘realize it’s shit’.
They simply play it while it’s popular, never finish it, and then take it to Gamestop or sell it off.
It’s even worse on PC. Many PC players buy games but never so much as play them (approximately 37% of them, and 72% never finish the games they start).
Game enthusiasts have more money than sense, really.”

Ubisoft is doing by releasing games so early. they are testing the waters and paving a way for things to come. Somebody has to do this trial and error shit.”

“Nope. This is not happening. x86 hardware has over 3 decades of books written on optimizing for hardware. DX11 has been around for at least 6 years and a lot of books have been written of that API along with a fuck ton of optimization work that has been done for it.
Microsoft just started talking about the work that DX12 is going to do, and they say that its compatible with existing hardware. But the simple fact is that hardware that is made from the ground up is going to do DX12 better than hardware that has DX12 tacked on: that’s XB1, PS4 is still OpenGL.
XB1 and PS4 games won’t look better with time, they will however stop dropping frames in a few years FOR a few years, then you’ll go back to sub30 framerates in order to squeeze in more graphical techniques so that the marketing department doesn’t go out of business.
And executives up top will continue pushing for this, because they think that without an overinflated marketing budget, the game will flop. So that cycle won’t ever end either.
This generation of consoles are fucked and will be dead within 5-6 years.

“Graphics directly affect gameplay possibilities.”
“An ugly picture doesn’t ruin the actual art and meaning behind it.”
“The medium with which you present the game defines the limitations of said game.
Let’s look to the past: PC games had no capability of emulating famous nintendo side scroll. Until Carmack found a way, an entire genre of games (and the highest selling, highest rated one at the time) was completely barred from the platform. There was no hard graphical way for a PC to reproduce that smooth scroll. Luckily, Carmack found a way – thus opening up the entire PC platform to 2d side scrolling platformers.
Let’s look at the present: Just for an example look at Assassin’s Creed’s huge crowd models. Being able to support such large crowds (which they promise will triple in number than what we’ve seen so far) influences level design and gameplay. 6 years ago you would never have seen a game present you with the challenge of assassinating a target by hiding in large crowds and traversing a city vertically. 5 years ago the closest and most revolutionary thing was Hitman Blood Money’s Mardi Gras level. But besides simple scripts of the crowd reacting to the players violence there was nothing. With AC we see the crowd not only interact with the player but also with itself, setting up for opportunities to stumble upon generated quests like the man being bullied by soldiers or the another man being killed in the street to the wonderment of a crowd. You could say these were scripted for the demo, but today it’s just as plausible to believe it was dynamically generated interactions.
Then you have the issues of frame rate and draw distance making entire genres of games possible like fighting games or racing simulators.
Graphics isn’t just raw beauty shots or photorealism circlejerking. Graphics are the gateway with which we see new kinds of games and new ways for the player to interact with the game.”

As such, it is better to give something to someone and tell this is what they’re getting. It removes the factor of choice, which is one of the primary factors in unhappiness.”
