  1. Goddamnit these are unbelievable. you are bringing me to the verge of another full Deus Ex playthrough. I don't have that kind of time, Will!!

    Corona Virus

    I can respect the decision to voluntarily contract polio, but not COVID-19. It's a personal preference thing.

    Corona Virus

    In the United States, the government owns your body. Not saying that morally, but practically, they can enact a draft to take physical possession of you. They can subpoena you, put a warrant out for you, arrest you. So they already have control. The new vaccine argument elides the fact that failure to take the vaccine at all increases your chance of contracting a deadly virus. So it’s like driving without a seatbelt, or smoking at a gasoline pump. Eventually that shit will catch up to you, and the only hope you’ve got is a vaccine. In my opinion it is clear that this thing was created in a lab. Your best chance of fighting it is something created in a lab. That is just where humanity is today. Ever since the Manhattan Project we have been fucking around with science in a way that will doom us as a species, this vaccine is a way to avoid personal doom in the meantime. I can understand why this is not an optimistic or marketable truth, but sooner or later the government is going to stop fucking around and start mandating these vaccines, probably at the point where young people start to be at severe risk.
  4. Curious how we should handle this... did the spam bots basically break this idea? I've updated with a new link to see if it will work now
  5. Lmao. Youtube drama is the best
  6. I missed the whole fake plates scandal. Were people saying Jeff uses them? Are his muscles fake too?
  7. Never feels great or safe to have a room full of probably 200-300 people booing you and some dudes with authority on a stage mocking you as well. I know we’ve spent a while on this tangent of the blizzcon panel, but people seem to think it’s a useful window into what other women, who were in the company, faced from some of these same individuals, so it might not be a waste of time to look at it carefully I agree with @ElectroSheep that the whole vibe is off because the panel seems to be about these dudes’ egos instead of what everyone actually came together for, which is the games. It’s tough when you get elevated to that kind of a stage and platform, especially if you don’t do it much, to start to think it’s all about you and how great you are, and aren’t you funny and special. I think that’s what all the dumb jokes are about as well, people who have forgotten that any one of them could be replaced and World of Warcraft would still be World of Warcraft without them. None of that is happening because of them specifically, but they’re acting like rock stars or something. Absurd
  8. I did dumbell benching for many years because I didn't have a bench setup and my gym only had a free bench with no safety bars. Moving 80-100lb dumbells around is just kind of insane though and not very practical for a home gym. It's nice benching now with safety bars, there's really no risk except perhaps to the shoulders, but I just don't see it happening. Might break out the dumbells again to do some farmer carries, that was a super fun and effective exercise that I stopped doing a while ago for no real reason. I was seeing nice benefits from them
  9. It was a critical question, not rude. It’s bad enough you’ve got a million sweaty nerds booing her for asking a critical question, then they had to yuk yuk instead of taking a minute to answer her.
  10. I think these QA sessions are a bad idea because these aren’t trained media people or from the looks of it, very bright dudes when it comes to speaking with the public in person. I would have a simple ground rule: just be sincere in your answers, don’t try to be a fucking comedian, that’s not what we pay you to do. ”Great question, we will pass it on to our character design team” — all his dumbass had to say
  11. It’s a shitty, evasive answer to her question using humor to deflect, but it’s easy to fall into that when you’re trying to deflect attention away from a person asking a question which implicitly includes a potentially tough criticism of your game. Unfortunately for those chucklefucks, they ain’t comedians, and it wasn’t effective. I’ve definitely used humor to try to deflect when I’m a similar setting of someone asking you an awkward or unpleasant question and it genuinely does come across better to take five seconds to actually think about how you’re going to answer. People will laugh and act like they didn’t see the evasion, but they do. Also, in retrospect, not a great look that the guy named in the law suit as Mr. Bill Cosby is giving her a weird stare
  12. I think it’s a combination of my old max being well over body weight, trying to lose some body weight, and also just having terrible leverages for the exercise (long arms). One of the reasons I was focusing on it is, it’s a struggle lift for me
  13. Great skills in storytelling relative to the rest of storytellers in video games, yes. Poor management skills I think is clear by this point The thing about when these big auteurs in the gaming industry get critiqued (people can be pretty critical of Kojima as well)... dude has made some classics. I always like to remember that part.
  14. lost 40 pounds from my benchpress from taking a couple of weeks off. going to the gym really is like a korean mmorpg
