    Bruce Lee used Chuck Norris as his paperweight.

    You could, however, use it as a building material. Maybe build a nice desk for my computer out of it...

    Well obviously you can't use the XBOne as Paperweight, it's to big and heavy, only chuck norris would ever get his papers back
  9. Variloh liked a post in a topic by Jackie in Is Nintendo being unfairly treated? (twitch debate)   
    I think nintendo made some big PR-Mistakes... The Wii U is - at least on paper - a good console and the Nintendo titles on it so far are just fantastic. But they didn't manage to sell to the public, that it is the next big thing. And they didn't talk enough with other developers to maybe fullfill their needs better. Of corse, it's allways easy to talk in hindsight, but maybe they should have waited a year, launching the Wii U with Mario World 3D and Pikmin 3 as launch titles, and maybe a bit more power under the hood and they might have done way better...
  10. Variloh liked a post in a topic by Gone in Why does the mainstream media consistently belittle and attack gaming and its industry?   
    My point is, whether it's the same or not, every form of media has been attacked and blamed. Some still are. TV does still get it, too much violence and sex is the usual call from certain groups followed by "won't somebody think of the children".
     
    The reason I don't want to research is because, after being a gamer for over 30 years, i've seen it all. I'm not ignorant to what's going on, i've watched it develop over the years.
     
    I don't defend the industry because I don't feel the need to. Nothing anybody says bothers me in the slightest. What can anybody say that would upset me? They can call gamers "nerds" or "geeks" or "social outcasts" it makes me chuckle. 
     
    Funniest one is "get a girlfriend" ..... I would, but I don't think my wife would be too happy about it.
     
    The main point is, nothing you say to anyone outside, or to some of us inside, the gaming community will change anything. With the amount of vocal idiots we have within this community .... and those are people i'm ashamed to be associated with .... nothing will change.
     
    For every one of you there is a "I will rape you, your mum and your dog" that cancels out the good points you try and make.
     
    Until those muppets shut the fuck up, gaming won't and can't be taken seriously. 
  11. Variloh liked a post in a topic by Mawn in Why does the mainstream media consistently belittle and attack gaming and its industry?   
    Mainstream media attacks games because (in my perspective), in a video game, what the media thinks is, when you do a particular thing in a game, for example, in Grand Theft Auto, you shoot an innocent guy in the head for no good valid reason, their mindset is that you, the player wants to do this particular thing in real life. Now video games is a good example of interactive media, you control the "actor", you do things that involves you thinking about doing the stuff in a virtual, non existing world. That's why it gets backlashed by the dumb media because the things people do in the real world, the sinister things that one man can do like murder, rape, harassment can be all found in major video games today. They don't look over into it, they just blame video games on point blank range, like instantly there's a murder happened somewhere? BOOM blame a Call of Duty game. A carnapping took place blocks away? Blame GTA for it! Because video games is now a common thing in this world, they somehow insert vgames into their news reports for god only knows what reasons. They love to blame on stuff, and video games is one of those. They don't look over evidences or the facts or the other "common sense" stuff. They just love to blame blame blame.

    Its a convenient scapegoat to tack all these incidents on because its misunderstood, some people don't do the research and find out what its all about (i.e they dismiss it as 'kiddie games'), some go the extra mile and read about it (kudos to them) and others are just blatantly ignorant and resort to having an Xbox 360 as a nanny for their kids.. only to then rage about why their kid has 'changed':

     
    Its quite disappointing really, it reveals a whole new level of ignorance... how can you expect them to be informed about a niche topic like video games when some people just lap up the processed and censored information that comes from fox, abc, cnn and the likes without pursuing other sources?  How can you expect them to be informed when some of them are the same people that blindly support outrageous things like internet censorship and surveillance to 'save our children' or music industry-grade copyright to 'feed our starving artists'?
  13. Variloh liked a post in a topic by Osprent in Why does the mainstream media consistently belittle and attack gaming and its industry?   
    Its pretty much just the Media going on and off about how everything is bad. People take things to seriously and they try to eliminate something that has nothing to do with anything. Some kid randomly gets murdered? Well we found out on his Xbox Live account he played over 2 Hours of the game known as Call of Duty for every week of his life so far. He must be some sort of killer right? Video games are literally meant to show you the horror of killing and destruction, Sometimes it may be fun but no one randomly walks off from their television and slams his fist into a random person face and throws them out of their car to drive off just because a Video Game did it. Im sorry but it just gets me mad that the Media/Government want to blame Video Games for things like Mass-Shootings...

    They'll always blame someone 
    First it was books, then it was comics, then it was the Radio, then it was Rock music, then it was TV, then it was rap music, then it was films, now its video games. Like it or not the media will always try and use what can only be described as "Scare Tactics"  to either sell more copies or push an agenda.
    I don't think video games cause violence, and anyone who does needs to take a look at the research.  The main culprit is easy access to firearms/weapons(outside the UK)  and difficult access to help for those that need it. 
    Right now I am suffering from zero self esteem, and anger issues.(Which I am getting help with in a few weeks)  Gaming wasn't the cause of this.   Mental health issues happen, whether your a gamer or not.
