WonderkarpAs a Child with a Quarter, I just wanted to see how far I could go. I wanted to Beat the Monkey(no Pun Intended). I agree with almost everything she has to say about Jade but disagree entirely that this "Trope" harms women.05/12/2015 - 11:50am
WonderkarpI cant think of any person who would actually play a game like Donkey Kong(For Example) and actually think that "haha, This woman is weak. She's Dumb. I'll Save you Weak Woman". Maybe the most Broest of Bros, or some immature child, but anybody else?05/12/2015 - 11:48am
WonderkarpAnd I'm inclined to disagree entirely that a "Damsel in Distress" reinforces those regressive myths. I feel those Myths are Bogus. To some people, yes, but its those peoples point of view.05/12/2015 - 11:40am
Andrew EisenThat's it. Nowhere does she suggest players "want to rescue a female character because she is female."05/12/2015 - 10:50am
Andrew Eisen"... a dude in distress does not reinforce any such ideas about men."05/12/2015 - 10:49am
Andrew EisenAnd you look very foolish doing so. What she says is "a damsel in distress reinforces longstanding regressive myths about women as a group being weak or helpless specifically because of their gender..."05/12/2015 - 10:49am
WonderkarpEisen - Now I get too tell you to watch the video.05/12/2015 - 10:48am
Andrew EisenKarp - Why are you calling BS on something Sarkeesian isn't saying?05/12/2015 - 10:46am
WonderkarpThats lame. Its like in Ghostbusters 2. Give the girl a puppy. Now take away the puppy. Only isntead of doing it for science, its for BS company politics.05/12/2015 - 9:59am
PHX Corp@Monte How low Can Sony and Konami Go before people Get Extremely angered regarding digital downloads being locked due to P.T.05/12/2015 - 9:29am
Monte - 8:06am
MonteAgain, i'm not sure on that, need to read into it more. If its not Konamri but Sony's DRM, then they'll need to release a patch to fix it05/12/2015 - 8:03am
MonteI'm not entirely sure, but i think now that PT's lisense was removed, coopies of PT on PS4 harddrives are failing the DRM check which i think may lead to the DRM thinking the player has a pirated game on their console and thus lock them out05/12/2015 - 8:03am
Monte@Goth, actually looking it up it sounds liek it might not be Konami locking people out of their games. Its may be a result of the PS4's drm system05/12/2015 - 8:02am
Wonderkarpok, I'm sorry, but I call BS on the new Femfreq video at 7:29. cause she starts getting into her damsel in distress BS. No, you dont want to rescue a female character because she is female. Thats BS.05/12/2015 - 7:42am
MechaTama31I understand perfectly what they mean by the term. What's getting me is the implication that it's a term that was already being used. Maybe that's what they call them in Japan or something?05/12/2015 - 7:41am
MechaTama31I was just baffled at the line 'Koji Igarashi, the namesake of "Igavania"-style games', because I have never heard that particular word used to describe them before.05/12/2015 - 7:40am
WonderkarpAny proof to that, Goth_Skunk? Cause If that is true, Konami is skyrocketing up to becoming the worst game company. This is crap even EA wouldnt pull05/12/2015 - 7:31am
TechnogeekOh, apparently FeministFrequency finally released the video I've been looking forward to the most ever since I heard about the "Positive Female Characters" series: a look at Jade from Beyond Good and Evil. - 3:33am
Goth_SkunkIn other news, via TechRaptor: High skill gamers less aggressive, perceive less violence. - 2:59am
Goth_SkunkThe lockout persists even if one deletes the demo off their PS4 afterwards. Might be something to follow-up on .05/12/2015 - 2:52am
Goth_SkunkApparently, anyone who downloaded the Silent Hill demo and has refused to delete it from their PS4 hard drives is being locked out of ALL Konami games purchased digitally for the same PS4 unit.05/12/2015 - 2:51am
Goth_SkunkI'm hearing rumours on twitter about a problem with any games published by Konami on the Playstation Network.05/12/2015 - 2:50am
MechaCrashI suspect they are "Igavanias" because "Metroidvania" would attract Nintendo's lawyers.05/12/2015 - 12:31am
TechnogeekAnd given that the Kickstarter is clearly attempting to invoke those titles...05/11/2015 - 10:55pm
TechnogeekIf you're focusing specifically on the Castlevania series (as opposed to the broader subgenre), it's not a terrible portmanteau for distingushing the titles from stuff like Lords of Shadow or the NES games.05/11/2015 - 10:55pm
MechaTama31Since when are they called "Igavania"?05/11/2015 - 10:07pm
Matthew Wilson at least some companies care about old ip, amd making it available for new players05/11/2015 - 9:50pm
Andrew EisenSure, I have a pretty good idea of how it will look and play but I'd still prefer to see some footage.05/11/2015 - 7:14pm
Wonderkarpyou kinda dont have to see this one in action. with this team, It will be like Symphony of the Night or Order of Ecclesia. If you played those games, and judging by the artwork alone, you can figure out how this game will look and play pretty easily.05/11/2015 - 6:49pm
E. Zachary Knightio9 featured my 6 word sc-fi story. "We thought they were stars. Wrong" - 6:22pm
Goth_SkunkRe: Repair Her Armor. Pfff.05/11/2015 - 6:04pm

WonderkarpWanted to share a project on Kickstarter. People in NJ are trying to get a new gaming con started. the Kickstarter only has about 9 hours to go, and they hit their funding, but there's still some time left05/11/2015 - 1:06pm
WonderkarpBloodstained Kickstarter looked Gorgeous. Spiritual Successor to Castlevania - 12:54pm
E. Zachary KnightHa ha. Mirada Studios thinks they can enforce a NDA on a 3rd party that has not signed said NDA.05/11/2015 - 12:06pm
Matthew Wilson is it DMCA Monday or something? yes I know it isnt dmca claim, but still.05/11/2015 - 12:02pm
MechaCrashHuh, I remember it costing three bucks last I looked. Maybe I remember wrong? But I don't think they changed "Fruit Ninja but the targets don't move."05/11/2015 - 11:54am
E. Zachary KnightI played ATB for free. The only time iot asked for money was to buy hourglasses and classic characters and worlds.05/11/2015 - 11:39am
MechaCrashStamina systems chap my ass too, but at least you can play Record Keeper without paying. ATB wants money up front, and if you want to build a team of classics or favorites, you have to put in MORE money for a *chance* to get what you want.05/11/2015 - 11:27am
MechaCrashYeah, Record Keeper isn't without its flaws, but I think it's a better game than ATB just because ATB is Fruit Ninja with less interactivity.05/11/2015 - 11:26am
Wonderkarpso to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of this video, be sure to run head first into a dangerous situation while screaming your name :D05/11/2015 - 11:15am
WonderkarpOn This Day In History : 5/11/2005, One of the first Viral Videos was posted online. That Video was the Infamous Leroy Jenkins Video05/11/2015 - 11:15am
E. Zachary KnightMonte, That is a very good description of the failings of Record Keeper. I experienced the same thing. No magic use till the boss fights.05/11/2015 - 10:05am
MonteAlso i didn't enjoy the combat system. It was reather difficult to switch between characters quickly in case you wanted to move out of order, and theuse of magic was WAY too limitted. Found myself NEVER using magic at all until the boss fight.05/11/2015 - 9:55am
Monte@Mecha i disagree, even if Record keeper is not as insidious as all the bravest it still commits a lot of the same sins that plague ftp games such as stamina bars, charging too much for too little premium currency and forced always online requirements.05/11/2015 - 9:53am
Matthew WilsonKonami DMCAs a journalistic video about their relationship with Kojima by superbunnyhop this is just stupid, and a violation of DMCA05/11/2015 - 9:39am
E. Zachary KnightRecord Keeper and All the Bravest are way different games. They both have their charms, but I feel that All the Bravest is the better game if only because of the lack of Stamina dependency.05/11/2015 - 7:26am
MechaCrashI tried Final Fantasy Record Keeper. I won't say it's great, but at least it's a game. I have heard it described as "what All The Bravest should have been," and that sounds about right.05/11/2015 - 2:28am
MonteI'm not sure DENA will help nintendo. Tried some of their games and they seem to engage in a lot of typical BS you commonly find on mobile. Not the guys you want to learn from05/10/2015 - 10:03pm
PHX CorpI'm a lot more pessimistic than I was at the start of the 8th Gen of consoles nowadays due to shady stuff going on in the video game industry and broken Buggy Games(ACU, Halo MCC)05/10/2015 - 9:39pm
PHX Corp@MW I Hope Nintendo Evolves thier Online and Youtube policies for the better over the next few months. Besides DeNA will get them up to speed. and We need to Encourage them to Change thier Youtube policy via Email and Phone(in addition to social Media)05/10/2015 - 9:22pm
E. Zachary KnightYeah, there is little reason not to drop it from current consoles. Unless those things are hardwired into the hardware, they can remove the region locks with a simple firmware update. I seriously doubt the locks are hardware based.05/10/2015 - 8:16pm
Matthew Wilsonfirst I will call bullcrap on it would be hard to remove it on current hardware. 2 get rid of region locking and join the 21th century. there is no reason to have it in this day and age.05/10/2015 - 7:37pm
Wonderkarpalso Thumbs up to Brandon Orselli for that RIDICULOUS picture in the article.05/10/2015 - 6:48pm
WonderkarpNintendo is considering No Region Locking with the NX Console - 6:47pm

MechaCrashDon't jump the gun yet, Tama. If it follows the pattern, then after what a turd 8 was, 10 is going to be *amazing.*05/10/2015 - 2:22am
MechaTama31As far as I'm concerned, Windows 7 is the last version.05/10/2015 - 12:55am
Andrew EisenGoth - That is, of course, absolutely fine.05/09/2015 - 5:49pm
TechnogeekThat said, there's a very large difference between "X said Y, X has lied in the past, therefore I'd prefer a better source for Y" and "X said Y, X has lied in the past, therefore Y is false". I mean, even Fox News occasionally gets things right.05/09/2015 - 5:28pm
Technogeek(I'm fairly certain you and I will disagree quite vociferously on whether or not a specific source falls under that category, admittedly, particularly in the context of video games and related media; but that's separate from the underlying principle.)05/09/2015 - 5:27pm
TechnogeekThere's nothing inherently wrong with distrusting a given source of information if one believes that source to have a history of willfully propagating information that they either know to be incorrect or should have known.05/09/2015 - 5:27pm
Goth_SkunkNot limited to sites either, but documentarians as well. For example, I lost all trust for Michael Moore after Bowling for Columbine after he knowingly deceived his audience during a scene where he's purchasing ammunition in Canada.05/09/2015 - 5:00pm
Goth_Skunk@AE: What if one feels they cannot trust an entire site's output because one knows said site was either wilfully ignorant, or intentionally dishonest in an article that was supposedly factual?05/09/2015 - 4:58pm
TechnogeekI was in the first and third testfire sessions. It's a lot of fun, and the aesthetic couldn't be more 90s Nickelodeon if the voice actors included Danny Tamberelli and Michael Maronna.05/09/2015 - 3:07pm
Andrew EisenTried to play Splatoon again today. Didn't get to play one damn battle. Bummer.05/09/2015 - 3:04pm
Infophile@Wonderkarp: Kickstarter doesn't charge until the project completes, and then only if it's successfully funded. So you can pledge any amount you want, and you won't be charged unless it succeeds. So no credit card need ever have been charged05/09/2015 - 2:12pm
E. Zachary KnightI doubt this will be the last version of Windows. They will have "official" versions that they support and anything older than it will be unsupported. I guess they could be moving to a more Ubuntu style updates.05/09/2015 - 12:03pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I tend to think its more keeping everyone on the same version. they are giving away win 10 to end users, becouse its cheaper than providing legacy support.05/09/2015 - 11:31am
Andrew EisenUnless it's going to start charging for updates, I'm not inclined to believe that.05/09/2015 - 11:09am
PHX Corp Windows 10 will be last version due to Windows being constantly updated05/09/2015 - 11:04am
Andrew Eisenbut what's the alternative? That there really are a few schmucks on the internet who get their kicks by being schmucks? Why, I've never even heard of such a thing!05/09/2015 - 10:57am
Andrew EisenOr maybe this is all an elaborate conspiracy and The Mary Sue, Kiva Bay AND Kickstarter itself are in cahoots to artificially bump up the visibility of a particular project. Which is unnecessary, impractical, nonsensical and impossibly stupid...05/09/2015 - 10:56am
Andrew EisenFurther, it's beyond silly to feel an entire site's output cannot be trusted because you disagreed with one opinion of one contributor.05/09/2015 - 10:46am
Andrew EisenAlso, it appears you STILL haven't actually read the Pokemon article. Like Sarkeesian's videos, it's important you know what people actually said before critiquing their opinion.05/09/2015 - 10:42am
Andrew EisenI don't get your comment on "stealing" from a credit card. No one said any such thing, here or at the Mary Sue.05/09/2015 - 10:41am
Andrew EisenHealthy skepticism is all fine and dandy but I find it unlikely to the point of impossible that the Mary Sue mocked up the 8chan screenshot and fabricated quotes from both Bay and Kickstarter.05/09/2015 - 10:35am
Andrew EisenInfophile - Regarding Splatoon. What I meant was I never got a chance to try the game. It just gave me errors for the entire hour.05/09/2015 - 10:29am

Wonderkarpas for the project itself? I honestly dont care. Cudos to supporting a shelter. Only thing that I find hilarious is Arthur Chu being on the list. He really is a fantastic Feminist with his racist rantings05/09/2015 - 8:44am
Wonderkarpalso I wouldnt trust Marysue as far as I could throw it. These are the same people who said the DEMO to Omega Ruby was Sexist cause you cant play as the girl. Its a DEMO05/09/2015 - 8:37am
WonderkarpIf somebody DID really post 10k into it, an Arrest will happen. Cause that is a BIG transaction and people are saying it was Fraudulent.05/09/2015 - 8:36am
Wonderkarp"you can't "steal" $10,000.00 from a credit card. Do you even know what daily limits and credit limits are? Do you not understand basic fraud guard programs? Are you not aware of federal consumer rights? Is there even an open trade line in your possession05/09/2015 - 8:35am
WonderkarpThere's no proof it actually happened. the only evidence is a single anonymous post on 8chan. It could have very easily been posted there by somebody as a publicity move. As someone on KIA mentioned...05/09/2015 - 8:34am
Mattsworknameso, on the feminst deck thing, Im not big on some sectors of feminism, but that whole donation thing was just a dick move. glad kickstarter caught it.05/09/2015 - 5:31am
MattsworknameAndrew, this is exactly why I say the ESA should be disbanded and reformed into something more consumer friendly.05/09/2015 - 5:30am
InfophileOn Feminist Deck: Kickstarter says they were actually planning to put the project on the front page before this. So trolls don't get credit for that.05/09/2015 - 4:31am
InfophileDidn't enjoy it? That's too bad. Any particular reason(s)?05/09/2015 - 4:28am
