Someone in my feed suggested Hatred was a perfectly disguised Frog Fractions 2. :D can't find it to RT.

Looking forward to the abridged edit of The Hobbit films.

Dreamt Slimer was the new companion on Doctor Who. That might be enough to get me to watch it again...

When the robot apocalypse comes, remember this phrase to pass as a machine: "beep boop bop. Beep beep boop bop."

Insert obligatory remark that a game about graphic consensual sex is harder to publish than one about graphic nonconsensual violence.

Graphic & upsetting that any sane person would be forced to play as a total pacifist, but I know I'm giving the creators way too much credit

I'd say that Hatred is brilliant art challenging out acceptance of "justified" violence in games and movies by depicting violence as so ...

I'll go back to ignoring Hatred now, while continuing to wonder why the hell Dexter had such mainstream acceptance.

Or at least as easily justified as it is in games and film.

I like games about justified violence, but it does bother me that I'm buying into the fantasy that violence is ever justified.

So it's a killing spree game that doesn't have the pretense that your violence is justified? Heh.

I guess I need to actually look at Hatred so I can have an opinion on it now. I don't really want to though.

A fun meta game to play in gone home is to throw all of the physics objects in the game into a big pile in the main hall. FPS issues ensue.

I want there to be more games like Gone Home, but I also want someone to mod Gone Home to add Doom monsters and guns.

Caught a Blackadder reference in @Borderlands TPS today. A chunk of purest Green. well played.

Whoever says that the DMV is inefficient and rude does NOT live in Madison, WI. The stereotype of bad ID photos is real, however.

My kitten thinks she is a parrot.

Of course gamergate doesn't "use" blocklists. Actually blocking people would get in the way of harassment. Hence the ironic optimism.

"There never was a blocklist" and "She doxxed herself" is the new "We've always been at war with Eastasia".

Guys that "anti-SJW" blocklist got taken down, which means it never ever existed because GamerGate would never use a blocklist right?
