  1. Hey everyone, I recently watched a video from a called Digibro. https://youtu.be/59Vw28CrutM His video encouraged me to speak up about my perspective that I believe has been systematically oppressed. I am a black male, and I have vastly different experiences and viewpoints that I want to share. And before anyone used the same tired argument of me being an sjw, encouraging "reverse racism", or not caring about the opinions of burly white guys, let me explain this to you. Half of the people I interact with is white, most of the content I enjoy is made by white dudes, and I always listen to the opinions of white dudes, even the creator of the video is a white dude. I just think that it is time for marginalized people to give their perspectives. Now that thats out of the way, lets start. I see that there is a hugely disproportionate amount of white main protagonists and characters in gaming. And when there is, it just feels like a token inclusion, and/or so that the devs do not look rascist. Here is the deal, while a person's race, gender, and other classification certainly has an impact on how you develop, I fail to see how being black is supposed to be a character trait. For example, look at Jacob Taylor from Mass Effect. He has little to no character, and he is probably the least liked crewmember throughout the game. Well, he is not completely boring since he is the only crewmember to potentially cheat on Shepard, AND knock another woman up. Or how about black characters falling into archetypes that are not fleshed out, such as Angry Black Guy Scary Black Man (not too different from the last) Big Black Guy Magical Negro Black Best Friend Sassy Black Woman Black and Nerdy Uncle Tomfoolery Bald Black Leader Guy (usually ties in with the first three) And who could forget Jive Turkey? You know, like Letitia from Human Revolution? Yep, pretty much one of the few black characters in that game is homeless and illiterate. I know I am going the trite arguments that "you are oversensitive", "make your own", and that it "was not intentional. First off, I am writing a serial with a POC protagonist, so that argument is invalidated. It also does not matter if it is intentional or not either. If I see literally the same clichéd tropes used over and over again, I am going to be just slightly disgruntled. And often times, black artists do exist, but whatever they make is usually seen as a "black product", or that they are trying to push an agenda. Because we all know you HAVE to have a reason to have a POC protagonist (even though you do not for a white one). We will now talk about Uncharted in just under one paragraph (lets see who gets the reference). In the past three Uncharted games, you play as Nathan Drake and his white brigade. A little weird how they are all white with no people of color, but allwhite (get it?). But then you discover that in the games that almost all ethnic minorities. And you who is the Big Bad of the second game who is the boss of them all? A white dude if course. It is a flip in Kingdom Hearts, where the only dark skinned dude is evil. But then when people like me point out these tropes, and without most of us demanding them to change, I am either branded as an SJW, called a rascist, get yelled at for "pushing an agenda", censored, or that they are "appealing to a wider audience". First off, blacks and hispanics are the largest ethnic demographics that play video games. It also turns out that the largest demographic overall is adult women at 36%. And again, when common sense is being spoken, white dudes go on and on about how they are totally not rascist, and that they should not be discriminated against, or ignored. Because it always comes down to how white guys feel, right? All of those marginalized folks on this forum, I want you to step up and speak from your perspective. And that if course goes for the white dudes too, just make sure you listen and consider as much as you speak. EDIT: Forgot to include this link. https://deadline.com/2015/03/tv-pilots-ethnic-casting-trend-backlash-1201386511/
  2. Hello Ladies and Gents, It is time for some Path of Exile goodness. What is Path of Exile? Should I play it? skip to The Event if you understand that its the shiz Its an Action RPG, best game of its genre. Playstyle is similar Diablo 2 Game Pros: * Free to play 100%. Even games like League of Legends or Smite, would be considered Pay to Win compared to PoE * On top 10 free games on steam * No region lock. Play with friends from anywhere in the world on the same server. * Fun to play/good game * Very very high character customization. You can build your own passive skills, active spells - play whatever you like. * Can build your own "guild house" like area and share it with your friends. Cons: * Brains are required to play the game. The game will punish you for mistakes you make building your char or letting your guard down in combat. * Party limitation to 6 players. * Hard to get into, because of very deep customization mechanic. But I'm here to help! * No char visual customization, you just pick one out of 7 classes. The Event What? It basically is a speedrun of the game. Everyone starts @ lvl 1 and tries to complete the achievements. When: The events start at the following times and last for one month: Pacific Time: 10am, Tuesday March 24Central European Time: 6pm, Tuesday March 24New Zealand Time: 6am, Wednesday March 25Teamspeak is highly recommended Game Type: SOFTCORE or HARDCORE? I will be making a poll for that. But I expect that we will play SC since there are not too many experienced AJSA players in POE. The event is organized by the game Developers. I am turning it into AJSA event, meaning we will have 1 or several parties running together as AJSA team and climbing the ranks of the ladder. This event contains prizes(check details). The primary goal will be just to have fun, hand out after work and try climbing the ladder as high as possible. Not to mention that you can win the awesome looking armor effect Depending on the amount of players interested, I might be hosting additional events like AJSA 3v3 pvp tournaments or 1v1. After the 1 mounth event ends, there will be a huge update to the game, releasing Act 4, so I will keep playing with you guys if any will be interested. I just cant wait... Details here: http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/1218688 If you are interested - Be sure to register. We will make teams, prior to the event. We need all player types ( Fire, Cold, Lightning, Physical, Tanks, Archers, Debuffers, Buffers) REGISTER BY LEAVING A COMMENT I will be playing Fire based Templar If you need any help, even if you are a complete noob and just want to have some fun with us I WILL HELP YOU. Pm me on forums or TS, i can make you a build explain all the basic, help u pratice. This post has been promoted to an article
  3. What game genre do you like? I listed examples but they all fit in more than one category to be honest ha!
  4. So, I checked all three pages and there doesn't seem to be one of these, so... Just vote for what Class you usually play and/or have at Level 80 Just for a bit of fun, I'd like you to vote for your favourite race as well. Me personally, only have my Engineer at level 80 so far, but I'm working on my Warrior right now. My favourite race are the Norn, because I love Nordic things, and Norn fit that description. Charr are a close second.
  5. I'm a huge fan of motor sport both IRL and simulated. I've tried autocross and hope to get back into it because their are not any tracks on Oahu. Anybody Play Wreckfest? a cross between Test drive Eve of Destruction and Flatout. Great demolition derby / late model car beat em up racer with impressive soft body damage system in steam greenlight. I love Test drive Unlimited "racing around on the same island where i live but with hardly any traffic is amazing. I love Grid, GTR & all SimBin older Need for Speed... blah blah blah. Just wanted to see if I can get the ARMY to join me on some online racing. Do a hostile takeover on the demolition derber servers of Wreckfest! Any games I should get? Anybody want to add me an race sometime? Feel free to discuss
  6. I've spent over 500 hours playing arma in the past year or so, and I thought I'd share some of the mods that i've used most heavily. All of these mods work with singleplayer, although some of them may not be allowed by some multiplayer servers, so you'll have to disable them if not. ~~~~~~~~ Community base addons : This is required to make the below mods work. Blastcore : This is a neat visual mod that tweaks lighting (especially at night), explosions, rain and various other things. Makes the game look a TONNE better. JSRS : This is an audio mod that replaces most of the default sounds with much better, much more realistic sounding audio. It also tweaks how sounds interact with buildings and terrain. Shacktac hud : This tool adds a small HUD at the bottom of your screen that shows you where your squad members are. Useful with the slightly erratic AI in the campaign. ~~~~~~~~~~~ If you're not sure how to install mods, do a quick search. There are plenty of tutorials and videos out there. It's simple once you get into the swing of things.
  7. So alot of the AJSA is really excited for Wildstar so i was just curious what faction are you guys going to side with. Then after that what class,race,and path are you going to play as. Me personally i cant decide on any of these choices the Dominion has really cool looking races and the Exiles has some awesome looking races except for the bunny race. The Spellslinger looks really cool because its based off of the old western style cowboys,the Warrior is like a Swiss army knife,the Esper can use his mind to make almost anything like Green Lantern,and the Stalker can sneak around and from what i saw maybe teleport. So yeah thats basically my conundrum. What do you guys think about all this are you undecided like me or do you know exactly what you want to be in WIldstar
