  1. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by Mr_E_Meatshield in Anita Sarkeesian leaves home due to death threats   
    Specifically the first part of the video, she really should've just went straight to the FBI and not have made the death threat public. I don't think anyone is surprised that she wanted this to blow up in social media and be talked about (probably for at least a month). It's just her way to get more attention for herself and attract more people to her side as she's the "victim".
     
    Also, where did she say the supposed Serious Death Threat came from? Was it really through twitter? Was it a phone call directly to one of her personal numbers? Or was it a written letter delivered right to her door?
  2. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by Jackie in Anita Sarkeesian leaves home due to death threats   
    The point here is: These threats came from someone who know where she lives. That's way worse, than some random threat. I can fully understand her reaction, and I think it's the right one and the smart one.
     
    However I also understand why one could believe, it's a flase flag. This story gets out the very day after she released a video, in which she claims, videogames would make men beat women. That's incredibly convinient from a PR point of view. Serkeesian used the threats of Internet trolls in the past pretty successfully, to make it look as if she had a point... as if being threatend somehow is an excuse for scientific dishonesty. And she was cought lying for the sake of PR in the past...
     
    That said, I belief in 'in dubio pro reo' so without proof, that it is a false flag, I think we have to assume it isn't.
  3. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Fez creator the "sell out one hit wonder" sells his company after hackers reveal his personal info.   
    Now before I get to what I'm about to say, I feel it's necessary to establish that this is mostly speculation and not backed up by 100% fact. But here goes:

    There's some evidence suggesting that this hacking attack on Phil Fish was phony.

    For one thing the hacker supposedly stole ALL of his pertinent information, including social security number and government documents, from his email server.
    Even pretending that Phil Fish actually kept all of that on his email server, despite that happening Phil Fish retained control of his Twitter account long enough to post an angry rant, declare that his company and Fez were both up for sale, and then personally delete his account.

    The person who also released that info claimed to be from /V/ and was both a mod of 4chan.org and the leader of Anonymous.

    1. /v/ isn't capitalized
    2. 4chan doesn't have mods, they have "janitors" that are allowed to delete posts.
    3. 4chan hates the anonymous movement nowadays.
    4. There is no leader of anonymous.

    This has lead me to question the legitimacy of Phil Fish's apparent personal attack. It wouldn't be the first time a personality on the internet has claimed to be hacked.




    And it certainly isn't the first time Phil Fish has said something shocking on Twitter, either out of liking to create drama or his own personal paranoia.

  5. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by Ghaleon in The silent or the talking Protagonist   
    Personally i rarely feel like the protagonist is "me" silent or not. Particularly because oftentimes your character makes stupid ass nonsensical decisions during the game. Sometimes if you are given a menu with choices on how to solve a problem, I STILL think they're all stupid. For example a game might have a person pick pocket something semi-valiable from you, and you might be given the choice to deal with the loss, or outright kill the culprit in the city in broad daylight knowing your reputation will forever be ruined.
    Given a choice to chase em down and simply take it from them without murder? Nope. I mean im not talking odd ball option #3 here, but choices that should have been #1 to begin with, blarg.
    I also feel it really unnatural i a game has some kind of romance in it. Why is every girl potentially falling in love with my character when he says virtually nothing? Bleh.
    Not to bash silent protags, speaking ones disturb me too. Fact is i tend to dislike the protagonist more often than not, even in games with an otherwise good (to me) story. Fei in xenogears for example didnt impress me too much, i mean he didnt strike me as a roaring dumbass but i didnt like him nearly as much as the overall story, that and im really sick of the whole unknown/hidden/forgotten past thing rpg protags have far too often.
    My fave kind of protagonist is the kind where there are none. Where you can play as a variety of characters and none of them are supposed to be the main. Xenosaga kinda made the protag to be shion at the start but as the series progresses it kinda doesnt really force you to think anybody is the main.
    FF6 is a popular example but I think Terra/Celise (was that her name? Forgot) were kinda sorta given a little bias like shion in xenosaga episode 1.
    Oddly enough the games where I identify myself as the character most of all are mmo games, and im generally one of those guys who always plays a girl in them. The gender is just cuz I enjoy looking at a girl more (unless they are all weird looking to me), but i feel like Im the character more in those games because other players talk to me, not my player, but they often call me by my character's name. When my character dies or something i get more upset irl than i do in othe games (no i dont rage). When other players do me a favor its my characte who benefits.
    I mean that can be true in non mmo games but it feels more real and less imagines because people really are doing it FOR me, not my character only. Not only that but whenever i make a friend in game that i like enough to play other games with them... I kinda feel weird if they know and call me by my real name. Ill tell it if they ask but i feel weird being called it. I normally prefer being called by my main's name in the game I play most often with that friend.

    It only bothers me when a good franchise is ruined; I'm looking at you Mass Effect 3. Otherwise, it saves me a lot of money by making me glad I still have older games that are better and having cheap indie games that I can buy instead.
     
    /sarcasm, it does suck though that games are launched broken most of the time. That is one thing I miss about older games that could not be updated via internet.

    You lose a lot of bang for your buck by going for a laptop to game on.
     
    It really isn't difficult at all. If you can put together a lego set, you can build a pc (lego instructions are 100x more difficult).

  12. ThE_MarD liked a post in a topic by 2ofSpades in Building Vs. Buying - The Better Option?   
    Good build. If it is too much money, I'd go for a cheaper motherboard (my personal opinion, it isn't going to be the correct action for everyone) and then a 500gb hd (I've never use that much space on my hard drive).
  13. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by ThE_MarD in Building Vs. Buying - The Better Option?   
    Heyyo,
    Two of the main reasons I went Intel? Power consumption and about the same performance (gains an upperhand though in unoptimized multi-threaded games that only use a handful of threads) for only $20 more. He pays more upfront for the CPU but the power consumption is cut in half.. so that could mean a savings of $40 a year in so for power consumtion (theoretically)... but? If he doesn't care about power consumption? Then the FX-6300 is the clear winner especially if you overclock it. I myself run older graphics cards for the time being just because I don't want to toss down a lump-sum for a newer graphics card because I'm saving my cash to see in 2016 what nVidia comes out with for those Pascal-based GPU's which look promising.
    Intel i3-4130 of... 54 Watts AMD FX-6300 of... 95 Watts      For graphics cards? I didn't even notice the AMD R9 270 for the same price bracket lol. It's definitely better than a GTX 750. So I'd agree and recommend revising my build with the R9 270 (only if you care about power consumption, otherwise go with ofFireandStone's build). It will definitely perform better in games for the price.
         as for Windows 8? I definitely dislike it... Windows 7 is much more efficient in every regard other than cold-boot time. Everything in the Windows 7 start menu is more efficient than the gesture-based setup of Windows 8... prime example is shutting down the machine..
    Windows 7? Start Menu > Shutdown Windows 8? Hover mouse to one of the corners on the right > Settings > Power > Shutdown      .... everything in Windows 8 seems to take more time to do than Windows 7. Drives me nuts. Probably why Microsoft is now bringing back the option for a "true" Start Menu in Windows 8.2, to allow people the option of using Windows 8 as a desktop environment instead of one that's more focused on touch-based. My Gaming rig and my notebook both aren't touchscreen, so I like an efficient setup.... then again Windows 8 isn't for everyone I guess. In the end this is my opinion on it... much like Windows Vista had good direction, but it just didn't run as smoothly as XP or even the beta tests of Windows 7 (came out 2 years after, with the full release 8 months after that).
         ....... anyways? now I'm side-tracked lol...
         Nope. One could easily install the OS via a USB drive. There's the official one from Microsoft called "Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool", or easy to use ones such as Universal USB Installer, or Rufus
  14. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by ofFireandStone in Building Vs. Buying - The Better Option?   
    Unless he likes windows 8...
     
    Personally I would recommend an FX-6300 Hexa core over an i3... You could also pay a little less on the memory, and an AMD R9 270 would be a better card for just a small step up from the 750.

  18. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by Legolas_Katarn in Games That Should Make A Comeback   
    Listing games with either a setting or gameplay style I really like. I could say Deadly Premonition which is one of my favorite games but it wouldn't really make sense to since the actual gameplay is poor and the same setting and characters wouldn't really work.
     
    Ogre Battle (using the gameplay style of March of the Black Queen/Person of Lordly Caliber, and Legend of the Zenobia Prince and not the FF Tactics style of gameplay they created with Let Us Cling Together)
    Suikoden
    Ring of Red
    Langrisser
    Phantom Dust
    Star Wars Jedi Knight
    Ghost Recon Shadow Wars
    Alpha Protocol
    Chromehounds
    X-Men Legends/Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    Vanquish
    Trauma Team
    Front Mission (not like the new one)
    Radiant Historia
    Warhammer 40K Dawn of War
    Dragon Force
    Desinty of an Emperor
    X-Wing/Tie Fighter/X-Wing Alliance
    Paper Mario (like the first two)
     
    I would have said a real Fallout game and Baldurs Gate/Icewind Dale/Planescape in the past but with Wasteland 2, Numenera, and Project Eternity it looks like I got that wish.

  20. 2ofSpades liked a post in a topic by fridgeracer in What does it mean to be a "real" gamer?   
    that's your opinion mate and i'm not gonna argue. i just see things a bit differently. i come from a day and age where games were completed only if you were good enough. games today can be completed by anyone, and normally within 24 hours of play time. i tend to blame that on casuals / masses who unfortunately are larger in numbers than old timers like me who used to play to express skill and ego over every other gamer as competition, not just to have fun.

    Also, I don't think any of us here are "console kiddies," so it feels like an emotional rant to the choir. Take out the "STFU" and the "whinning little bitches" and make the thread towards the right target audience and this would have been a nice discussion. As it stands now, it just looks like a rage thread.
     
    Edit: I'm not saying that the op doesn't bring forth valid points of criticism. Putting attitude and wording aside, I agree with the op.

  25. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by 2ofSpades in Having trouble picking up my game   
    Play against bots. No, I'm serious. It will help with these things. I just got back into the game as well and am doing better in ranked than I ever have done in the past by just playing bot games until I got familiar with all the champion changes and mechanics such as last-hitting, champion skill range/cast time/animation speed/mana consumption/combos, and positioning in fights.
     
    Once you have that down, play in team builder mode to get use to the more team oriented part of the game with the champions and positions that you want to get better at.
