E. Zachary KnightJust a follow up to yesterday's Memories Pizza discussion. This article articulates my thought on it. http://reason.com/blog/2015/04/02/was-memories-pizza-a-victim-of-irrespons04/03/2015 - 7:52am
Andrew EisenTrue. Good point.04/02/2015 - 10:31pm
Matthew Wilsonfaceb uttons would work too. boi only have 4 way shooting.04/02/2015 - 9:11pm
Andrew EisenTrue but there's always the Circle Pad Pro. That just leaves out the 2DS.04/02/2015 - 8:36pm
SuperKeegI assume that The Binding of Isaac is only on the New 3DS because of the dual analog sticks which the older versions lack natively.04/02/2015 - 8:34pm
Andrew EisenMatthew - That's... an odd choice. (Binding of Isaac)04/02/2015 - 7:59pm

Matthew Wilson I guess Nintendo stopped being silly, but only new 3ds? is the 3ds that under powered? http://www.vg247.com/2015/04/02/the-binding-of-isaac-rebirth-new-3ds-wii-u-xbox-o04/02/2015 - 6:07pm
ConsterBut AE, you can't argue with troll logic.04/02/2015 - 5:54pm
Andrew EisenMP - Which would be exceptionally stupid because Chunky is not fat.04/02/2015 - 5:49pm
Andrew EisenI don't want my money going to hate groups but I cannot resist the siren call of a delicious chicken sandwich!04/02/2015 - 5:47pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/AYQHAAABAACNUKFCbyeMvw Jetpac confirmed for DK64 on VC04/02/2015 - 5:47pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, the line about him being slow and unable to jump could be extrapolated out to fat shaming using troll logic.04/02/2015 - 5:46pm
E. Zachary KnightThat pizzeria case reminds me of the Chick Fillet protests from a couple years ago. People tried to organize a mass boycott of the fast food joint and a massive counter protest formed. Lines are miles long to this day during lunch hour.04/02/2015 - 5:45pm
Andrew EisenWell, good on 'em. Hopefully, instances like this teach people that being a schmuck often doesn't achieve the results you desire. In fact, sometimes, your target benefits from your schmuckery several times over.04/02/2015 - 5:36pm
ConsterSpeaking of MP, the GoFundMe is past 250k already.04/02/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenI know but MP's comment read to me like there was something else potentially offensive in the Chunky verse.04/02/2015 - 5:28pm
InfophileChunky's verse is the one that contains the "one hell of a guy" line. As for Lanky, it might be the word "crazy" in it that's considered offensive - some people consider it a slur against those with mental illnesses.04/02/2015 - 5:23pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, the DK Rap is currently uncensored in the European VC version. We'll see if that holds true for the American version in 2 weeks.04/02/2015 - 4:57pm
Andrew EisenOkay, I think we can safely say Nintendo would ignore the ridiculously few people who would take offense to a silly looking cartoon character being referred to as silly looking. What about Chunky's verse?04/02/2015 - 4:47pm
MaskedPixelanteExactly my point. You don't think it's offensive, I don't think it's offensive, but some troll on tumblr is going to say "Hey, that song says Lanky is clumsy and silly looking, that means NINTENDO IS BEING ABLEIST!"04/02/2015 - 4:42pm
Andrew EisenDK Rap lyrics if anyone's interested: http://www.mariowiki.com/DK_Rap04/02/2015 - 4:35pm
Andrew EisenI just looked at a lyrics sheet to refresh my memory and see nothing that could even remotely be considered offensive by anyone. What lines are you talking about?04/02/2015 - 4:10pm
MaskedPixelanteThe verses about Lanky and Chunky contain lines that thinskinned tumblr trolls would consider "offensive".04/02/2015 - 4:04pm
MaskedPixelanteNot what I was talking about, but that's true too.04/02/2015 - 4:03pm
Andrew EisenFor those not aware, the DK Rap includes the line "But this Kong's one hell of a guy." Apparently "hell" was changed to "heck" in Smash Bros.04/02/2015 - 4:01pm
MaskedPixelantePlus the DK Rap was censored in Smash 4, removing the verses about Lanky and Chunky.04/02/2015 - 4:00pm
MaskedPixelanteNintendo HAS done censoring on VC releases before. Pokemon Snap had Jynx repainted purple and Ocarina of Time replaced the "star and crescent moon" symbol with the new Gerudo symbol.04/02/2015 - 3:59pm
prh99AE: I guess it comes down what one consider a good headline, which is fine. MP: Nevermind thought it was fan made.04/02/2015 - 3:57pm
Andrew EisenThat depends. Was there ever a censored version?04/02/2015 - 3:52pm
MaskedPixelanteSo, what are the odds that when Donkey Kong 64 comes out in two weeks, the DK Rap gets censored?04/02/2015 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenThe word is absolutely a pejorative, which is why I don't think it should be used to describe well-written headlines, ones that generate interest without misleading about the article's contents.04/02/2015 - 3:51pm
prh99I don't know that's my definition of click bait. The word is a bit of a pejorative and often used dismissively.04/02/2015 - 3:48pm
prh99It's how they generate that interest. The Reason article withholds the name of pizza place so you have to click through to the article. If I know the name of pizza place and that they got trashed on yelp for being anti-gay the rest isn't very interesting04/02/2015 - 3:45pm
Andrew EisenOtherwise, every decent headline is clickbait and the word becomes rather meaningless.04/02/2015 - 3:35pm
Andrew EisenI don't agree that a headline that makes you want to read the full article should count as clickbait.04/02/2015 - 3:33pm
prh99There is also a parody click bait generator http://www.upworthygenerator.com/04/02/2015 - 3:30pm
prh99There is more than one way to make click bait, the curiosity gap is just one. Not click bait but articles on it: http://bit.ly/1nMI3yE http://bit.ly/1MH98UZ http://bit.ly/1eVwKFB04/02/2015 - 3:24pm
Andrew EisenFor example: New JURASSIC WORLD Dinosaur “Indominus Rex” Revealed http://collider.com/jurassic-world-new-dinosaur-images-indominus-rex/04/02/2015 - 3:24pm
Andrew EisenTo me, clickbait is an article that does not deliver on the promise of its title.04/02/2015 - 3:21pm
Andrew EisenI think we're operating with different definitions of clickbait.04/02/2015 - 3:20pm
ConsterBut if you read 'Memories Pizza', you might not know who they are and why they got trashed on. "Anti-gay pizza place" describes it properly.04/02/2015 - 3:18pm
prh99The article and site are sound, the headline is textbook click bait.04/02/2015 - 3:15pm
prh99AE: No, it's the intentionally leaving out the subject. Instead of saying Memories Pizza they use "this". It's the same headline construction one sees from article promoting sham weight loss products and questionable science, the so called "curiosity gap"04/02/2015 - 3:10pm
Andrew EisenI don't get what's clickbaity about it. Does the headline make you think the restaurant had a bunch of actual refuse dumped on its premises?04/02/2015 - 3:06pm
prh99Infophile, maybe not but the headline sounds very much like what one would find on click bate articles.04/02/2015 - 2:59pm

E. Zachary KnightRL Stine's The Haunting Hour has a way less diverse cast than the Goosebumps. Really strange.04/02/2015 - 2:12pm
Infophile@Papa Midnight: That's not clickbait. Reason.com is rather popular libertarian site, with actual thought going into articles (which you may disagree with), not simply catchy titles and multiple pages to scroll through for maximum ad revenue.04/02/2015 - 12:26pm
Andrew EisenWell, memories Pizza could simply say "we don't cater weddings."04/02/2015 - 11:31am
Papa MidnightEZK: "E. Zachary Knight: http://reason.com/blog/2015/04/01/this-anti-gay-pizza-place-got-trashed-on" Nothing like good old click-bait.04/02/2015 - 11:13am
ConsterIf the amendment goes through, Memories Pizza will have to use their... over $134k now... to help cry themselves to sleep over not being allowed to refuse service to gay weddings.04/02/2015 - 11:09am

Matthew Wilson@AE from all information I know we (US) get it in a single package. but the price is we have to wait 6 months after japan gets it like every other fire emblem game.04/02/2015 - 10:50am

E. Zachary KnightAccording to this link, the pizzeria owner did not actually refuse anyone service. He was ask by a reporter if he would cater to a gay wedding and he answered in the negative. When that was published, the rants came rolling in.04/01/2015 - 8:17pm
Papa MidnightCorrection to my prior note, DiRT 3 Complete Edition does NOT replace DiRT 3 in user's libraries. But existing owners of DiRT 3 do get it for free.04/01/2015 - 8:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE it could be like pokemo, but the tweet and the site makes it look like 2 different games. tbf I do not know Japanese.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
MechaCrashInteresting how YouTube comments are universally acknowledged to be cesspits of idiocy where no coherent thought can survive, until a woman closes them. Then it's CENSORSHIP and being AFRAID OF DEBATE.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's... weird. The Direct made it sound like this was an organic part of a single game.04/01/2015 - 7:08pm
Matthew Wilsonapparently the 2 sides of the story in the new fire emblem game is 2 difrent games in japan, and we are getting both combined. https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/583415770744393729/photo/104/01/2015 - 7:00pm
MonteAE: there are pizzaria's that also make italian food which you can order in bulk to cater parties. Also, google pizza wedding; cause it is pretty cool04/01/2015 - 6:50pm
ConsterThe vast majority of (if not all) 1-star reviews are angry rants about its policy. 'Jesus said to love thy neighbor, assholes' (paraphrased) seems very common.04/01/2015 - 6:49pm
Matthew WilsonI did not check it out personaly. I only read a arctlice about it, but it does seem to be in a lets just say a very mean way.04/01/2015 - 6:41pm
Andrew EisenTrashed in a fair way or are people lying about cockroach infestations and stuff?04/01/2015 - 6:24pm
Matthew Wilsonwell they also are getting trashed on yelp too. given the number of people that use it, I suspect they will lose allot of business even if they change their mind.04/01/2015 - 6:19pm

ZippyDSMleeOkay now that I can understand, I was focusing on total outcome not just reinforcement.So its about reinforcement of poor feelings/behavior than anything else..now I get it....uhg forest for the trees.....04/01/2015 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenBut again, to be clear, that does not mean consuming violent media will make you violent.04/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenZippy - Not totally sure what you're getting at but it's the same idea that when our fiction is full of stories where violence is the solution to everything, it helps reinforce the idea that violence is the answer in real life.04/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenAlso, just in case anyone wasn't clear on this, Sarkeesian's argument in her latest video is that we "need more women-centric stories of all kinds." That's it.04/01/2015 - 3:44pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen Okay so would that be like violence something that has a loose tie to the real world, or would that be an oversimplification?04/01/2015 - 3:43pm
