@MochaKoffee Titanic will always be akin to pulp fiction to me. It can be fun, but don't look too deep under the surface.

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks Yeah, I'll continue to mostly play indie games. the first game I bought with a season pass cost attached to it was BotW, lol

@MochaKoffee @Kireek @triumph_forks That's been the case for years now, and nothing ever changes despite shit like this coming out on what seems to be a yearly basis.

Nintendo should absolutely take the reins at this point because it's obvious the gaming community will never police themselves the way they need to to keep people safe from predators.

But I don't expect them to.

@MochaKoffee I've not heard about this one, but yeah, that'd fit in the old 11am slot where Yu-Gi-Oh was just fine lol

@MochaKoffee I was surprised he picked Medabots over something like Sailor Moon or Precure, yeah. Precure into Cardcaptors or vice versa would be a nice hour block.

@MochaKoffee he sure did oversell Dr Stone huh, lol.

Solid picks otherwise.

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks That thread will eventually derail into whining about activism again, people will just couch it in either layers of irony or progressive sounding whinging.

"We're hurting our own cause by being so insufferable, you know."

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks I thoroughly enjoy watching people there rewrite threads, that are locked for a perfectly good reason, in such a way to stay on the other side of the line the second time around.

Do they all think they're being clever by keeping the first page just clean enough to squeak by the staff or something.

@triumph_forks @MochaKoffee Most people who have a legitimate issue with it don't even really hate it.

They're just pointing out that at the end of the day it's actually a run of the mill, perfectly average game that doesn't need to be put on a pedestal.

It's irritating as fuck seeing people dismiss those folks as being incels or whatever because of a completely level headed take.

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks Can everyone please just stop being so damn insistent and loud about the shitty things effecting other people's lives and experiences so I can play my violence simulator in peace, please.

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks What a nice thread of "progressives" complaining about activists and writers being progressive.

@MochaKoffee This video was far more interesting than his normal fare, yeah, lol

@MochaKoffee That's what happens when you let Nazis poison the well uninhibited for so long that every conversation that broaches these issues has to be examined in the worst light because the assumption is they might be a Nazi hiding, and not just a person who has a vested interest in things being better.

Oh well. Naughty Dog still made millions of dollars so it's not like they really give a fuck on changing anything.

@MochaKoffee It's especially easy nowadays to dismiss criticism of ethics in the game industry because, "Ah ah, Gamergate was all about ethics in journalism, right? Nice try, obvious Nazi."

@MochaKoffee "Why aren't video games taken seriously? We only harass, disparage and attack every voice that tries to elevate the medium above what it's been since Duke Nukem 3D."

@MochaKoffee Yeah, but you see. This particular game is a game I like and think is good, so none of this applies to this particular case, obviously.

@MochaKoffee Meanwhile, these same people nod their head when Jim Sterling makes a video about the rampant abuse in the video game industry, blithely unaware that what Neil did here is exactly the sort of abuse of power that Jim is talking about.
