Here's the problem bro. They don't want to make video games. They want to co-opt the developers vision by telling them "No you can't can't do that, that'd be misogynist!" Because making a game would require effort while all these fucks want to do is sit in their comfy computer chair and spew vitriol from their keyboard. If they actually made their own fucking games it wouldn't be so much of an issue, but no...they have to infest game companies and have them make changes because "muh feels."

That's why I care about this.

Keep your target audience in mind. Most people on here are teenagers, so their biggest concern in the world is seeing their favorite toys getting criticized.

Sorry to hear that bro. I know it can get annoying not wanting to be a part of it , and having it shoved in your face, but eventually it will die down.

Sorry you lost your job. But we care, and we're not going away. Some of our jobs are at risk here as well.

Thumb it down or skip it and move on. Staying to comment means you have to stay longer and be bothered by it. You're choosing this.
User avatar #88 - twistedwoodthing (11/03/2014) [-]
Oh I do plenty of skipping and thumbing down - enough that it eventually felt worth it to post this. Thing is, this site isn't about gamergate, or even videogames. Yet every third post is some snarky riposte or copy of a twitter feed obsessing over the issue.
And how exactly is anyone's job on the line?
User avatar #90 - thewulfman (11/03/2014) [-]
People who do or do not support GamerGate can and have been fired based on their views.

Either you do or don't. Pick a lane. If you do care, try to actually get educated. If you don't, great, move along.

You know, I hadn't realized it, but I guess I care after all. About getting to enjoy FJ the way I want. Which is probably selfish, but I'm okay with that.

Because I had the skill in machining, skill > piece of paper in the real world.

I just did stuff with my uncle and went and took 1 class for 8 weeks before I applied.
User avatar #189 - twistedwoodthing (11/03/2014) [-]
"Just did stuff with my uncle" - alright, any tips if you *don't* have a family tie?
User avatar #190 - fyaq (11/03/2014) [-]
The point of the uncle is that by working with him I got a skill, he didnt get me the job or know anyone.

Develop a skill.

Skills pay bills, pieces of paper cost money.

Spend a few years working as a cleaning guy at a machine shop, work as an apprentice and get your certification, put in the work and learn a trade and you will never be worried about a job.

Learn how to weld, take a course on it, just make sure you can show you have the skill to anyone who knows what theyre talking about.

I have a low alcohol tolerance and I've accidentally got piss drunk a few times and the truth is that things DO happen when people drink. I can see your point, catcalling is not cool, sober or otherwise, because it offends people. My point is just that there isn't much you can do if drunk guys are the problem here unless you try to stop them from being drunk altogether. I guess that's it.

Consider now that this social stigma has been in development for about 100 years, has several laws, with punishments that go from heavy fines to jail time, backing it up and is against an action that puts not only your life but everyone else's in danger. Despite all this there are still more drunk drivers than it is acceptable.

Applying the same solution to catcalling is hardly practical considering the consequences the action has is "someone might feel offended". Again, I'm not saying cat callers are right. However drunk guys are a whole other problem. Catcalling done by those people is just a symptom.
User avatar #46 - twistedwoodthing (11/02/2014) [-]
I wasn't proposing anything similar for cat calling, as it's far less severe, but few people react to it by saying "oh well, things happen when people drink", and I don't think it should be the attitude here.
I just don't think cool to catcall people, sober or otherwise.

I'm not an academic on the subject, but enough that it unnerves me how much the term gets bashed on the site. It's like they've come up with a terrifying construct and are scared they'll find it under their beds, like how people used to feel about communists.

Bondage... that's extremely specific for internet porn. You'd expect to be like, a billion vanilla pics wouldn't you? One thing is sure: you'd expect tons of porn. That's the internet.

I don't know *why* it picked up on that - I wouldn't think google was tailoring it to show me those results as it's not really my thing.
I was actually reading recently an article in Forbes that said there's actually a lot less of the internet that's porn than everyone thinks, maybe only about 4%. But I didn't get a chance to finish reading it so I didn't get their evidence.

Ran out of room to reply:
Anyway, I currently live in what was my family home with my siblings and two other renters (my parents moved, we live in the house and pay rent). As for the travelling, I did a 6 month study abroad program in France a couple years back, and had the option to travel around a bit. I lived in Dijon, in Burgundy, which isn't quite as sketchy as the south.
As for Fargo, I can't recommend it enough. It's hilarious, and at times really intense. I like my humour pretty dark so it works for me.
User avatar #36 to #35 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
That's pretty sweet. When I lived in the UK being of age I used every opportunity to travel around. Especially Italy, I love Italy. I still do that, to a certain extent. In fact I recently moved to Washington DC.
User avatar #37 to #36 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh cool, spent about two weeks in Northern Italy. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice. I went on a bus tour that was primarily comprised of retired aussies and kiwis, they were a lark.
What are you doing in Washington DC? I suppose the standard assumption is something to do with government.
User avatar #38 to #37 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
No, my contract my then-current employer ended with and at the same time I had friction with the girl I was living with in Missouri. So, since I've been travelling all around since I was 15, I just packed my things in a container, got up on my bike and decided on a spot on the map. I'm looking for a job, but I have enough saved to live for about 10 months.

User avatar #6 to #5 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
It's a reference to a character from the Gormenghast books (if you don't know them, it's just about the strangest fantasy series I've ever read. Only the first, and maybe second, books are worth reading because the author was partially insane by the time he wrote the third). You can just call me Thing, or Chloe if you prefer.
Why did you decide to go by Thebestpieever? And shall I call you pie?
User avatar #8 to #6 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I like Chloe; Chloe's pretty.
Well, I used to listen to watch this show where the usernames would sent in silly things that happened whilst they played videogames and the hosts would often comment on the usernames of the senders. So, I thought this would spark some nice comment.
As for what you call me, yeah Pie's fine, you can also call me Walker.
I also think I'm gonna read those books as soon as I'm finished with the one I'm reading now.
User avatar #10 to #8 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
The writing is amazing, but it's not easy going. Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator, so he describes a lot of scenes very meticulously. It's great for visualizing the enormous, gothic castle where it all takes place, and the characters he describes are by turns complex and over the top. Sometimes all the description is overwhelming and you'd give anything for a bit of simple dialogue. But I've yet to read a series that felt so much like there was an actual world behind it.

What are you reading right now? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.
User avatar #11 to #10 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I've been reading a book called "Jam" by Ben Croshaw. It's... It's alright. I'm about 60 pages in and so far there's been some really obvious problems narration-wise to the point where I often have to go back a few pages because I've found myself completely lost about that the characters are currently doing. The stream of conciousness narration is very well done, when it's there, but it has a very inconsistent style of narration and tone. It is a very good comedy when it tries to be one, but the more serious stuff feels haphazard and more like an attempt by the author to be validated rather than any serious story he wanted to tell.
User avatar #12 to #11 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Oh cool, Yahtzee's book! (or one of them anyway, I think he has two now) Yeah, I'm sorry to hear it has issues, although I'd like to read it. I love his game reviews, I was wondering how the sense of humour would translate to a full length novel.
User avatar #13 to #12 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
You know Yahtzee, that's co cool. I never read Mogworld, but from what I hear most people liked it better than Jam.. The humour is there, and really well done, though.
So I take it you play videogames?
User avatar #15 to #13 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
If I manage to save up for a new laptop any time in the next year, though, I'd like to play Amnesia, I love horror. I'd like to try to get a copy of bioshock, too, since everyone raves about it and my brother might let me borrow his 360 after exam period. Do you have any recommendations?

User avatar #18 to #17 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Science Fiction and Horror, (both reading it, writing it, and watching movies), the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, webcomics and baking. I've only recently taken up playing MTG and Dungeons & Dragons, but I love them, and music-wise, I've got a very mongrel taste but lately I've been listening to increasing amounts of metal.
And what about you sir? Likes? Dislikes? Pet Peeves? Quirks?
User avatar #19 to #18 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Horror an fantasy, also reading, writing and watching it. Game Of Thrones, The Graham Norton Show, Friends (The only shows I watch that haven't created a super invasive fandom that has alienated the rest of the internet) Music: Everything, really, but I'm mainly a fan of Rock'n'roll. Also a big fan of metal, though, Black Sabbath is my second favourite band. I'm also big on motorcycles: riding, fixing, looking, buying, all of it.
As for pet peeves and quirks: I can't think of any pet peeve that's big enough to mention, and I have waaay too many little quirks.
Sir, I like that; you are a very refined woman, milady.
User avatar #20 to #19 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
I noticed some Dr Who on your profile (I was creeping - best way to find good stuff on Funny Junk is to browse your friends' uploads/favourites.) I likes me some doctor but I'm way behind, and I'm not sure I could ever warm up to Matt Smith. Tennant's my favourite, in part because I so respect him as an actor (goddamn brilliant hamlet), and in part because I have a fangirlish crush. Don't judge me.
Speaking of, I got some serious feels from some of the stuff in your faves, esp. "Love" and "Ancient Wisdom." that's good taste right there.
Black Sabbath is actually playing in my city next year, but I haven't heard enough of them to know if I should try to get tickets. Do you have any album suggestions?
Also, you mentioned moving to the states, and given the references to Dr. Who and Treacle, I'm guessing from somewhere in the UK? Basically, what accent should I be reading your comments in, haha?
User avatar #21 to #20 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
When it comes to Black Sabbath it comes like this:
The first two: Black Sabbath and Paranoid are masterpieces; superb albums, don't think I've hear anything like them. The third, Master of Reality is great but nothing close. Vol. 4 is good. The Fifth, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is also great. Sixth, Sabotage is also good. The seventh, Technical ecstasy is very good but it sounds nothing like what comes before or after. The eight just blows. The Ninth, Heaven and Hell is also a masterpiece but it is heaver than anything they've done. And the tenth is also great, Master of Reality level. After that, they have some good stuff, some bad stuff but nothing as noteworthy (I would suggest "Cross Purposes" "13" and "Headless Cross).

When it comes to the accent... that's weird. I was born in Spain, but I lived in the UK till I was six. Then we moved to Spain for the briefest time (like 4 months) but I was in the hospital so it might as well have been the UK. Then we moved to Mexico. Then I went back to the UK and now America. So... yeah, my accent is as if a Spaniard tried and half succeeded to speak in a midlands accent. It's a shame that the whole ordeal messed up my English accent 'cause I don't even speak Spanish all that well.

With you I guess I can imagine (Being oot and aboot with some loonies in your pocket, eh) what kind of accent you have.

On the theme of Doctor Who, I like Smiths performance but I think that most of the stories he's been in have been rubbish save for about 10 throughout his whole run.

Well in that case I'll probably start with the first two, and Heaven and Hell (I tend to like it pretty heavy, so that sounds like my direction.)
As to accent, I never used to think I had one until I became friends with some Americans on an exchange. We sounded just the same until it came to words like "out and about", whereupon they'd giggle at how I said it. The way they said it, to me, sounded like flapping your mouth open to catch flies. I actually visited a bit of England once, only a little under a week in London (and only a weekend in Spain) but I'd love to go back someday. Ever been North of the US border?

I'm a big fan of the way they speak in the Americas overall. From the southern states to Canada, it all sounds really cool to me. Also... I apologise in the name of the British Nation for anything you may have seen in London if you went anywhere near the east side of town.

I've been to Canada three times. My parents used to own a little house near Whitehorse, so we'd sometimes go there in the winter to ski and stuff. And just once I went over the border while I was faffing about in NYC after a work trip. I liked it, it really is my type of place. Sunny and warm locales just aren't my style.

I don't know how people can live in tropical places, the lack of seasonal change would send me haywire. I think it's a deep-rooted, physiological thing. And aside from the confusing metro system London was quite pleasant, I saw worse things in France daily.
I haven't yet been to Whitehorse and that end of the country (I'm from the east coast), but I'm trying to save to go there this summer.
As to accents, there are a lot of good ones. I'd have to say my favourite out of anywhere is a slight Indian or Irish accent, although for North America there's some newfie accents that are surprisingly musical. Have you ever seen the movie Fargo? The accents in it are exaggerated but hilarious.

Yeah, France is... really rough. Not exactly nice.
I had assumed you lived with your family, and, by extension you'd go on holiday with them. But apparently I was wrong; do you live on your own?
Also, no, I really want to watch it but it's on that infinite queue of "Damn it I was born in the 90's so there are 70 years of good movies to catch up on".

Yeah, I feel you. I used to be a spoilt rich kid and a super hardcore gamer and then some stuff happened and I had to get a job and I have the time to play like a game a month, if that. I still watch all the reviews and stuff.

For PC I would recommend my favourite game: Fallout 3, the sequel New Vegas. Alan Wake, it's not perfect but it is unlike anything I've seen. Bioshock, definitely, Infitine is goot but not as much as one and you should avoid 2. If you like tactical games I would recommend Xcom. If you like Fable I would suggest Skyrim since it takes the freedom aspect to the extreme and in the opposite side I would suggest Mass Effect since it takes the narrative and customisation also to the extreme.

Sigh, sad confession bear time: I spend a lot of time on the internet, on sites like this, reading comics, watching reviews etc that have to do with video games, but my brother is the real gamer in my house. I don't think I've played anything seriously since Fable 2, and haven't been better at him at a game since Starfox 64. I'd play computer games, but my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it. So, essentially, I'm immersed in gaming culture, love talking and hearing about it, but can't play.
I am the filthiest of casuals.
