    I feel vindicated having pegged you as mafia. Too late to get a legitimate vote in but still. Better than day one usually is for me.

    Sorry. That was longer than I thought. I hope the tone came out okay.

    Well, the large part is that, again, very public portrayal of Trump supporters has been as members of this group. Not-college-educated white men, overtly religious, bigoted, and violent. None of the other groups used as enemies have had this single viewpoint portrayal, aside from drug cartel members (which I don't think is that inaccurate) and Nazis (again, not inaccurate). If the group was just religious nut jobs, I wouldn't be as upset. But in today's parlance, religious nut job is too often used as shorthand speak for Trump supporter. If the media says "drug cartel member", I know they're talking about someone related to the illegal drug trade. If they say "white religious xenophobe", I know they're talking about a Trump supporter, regardless of how that Trump supporter actually feels or acts. I don't mind the stereotype, I am miffed that it is literally the only version of the Trump supporter which is allowed to exist in public media. I fully understand that there are such groups and individuals among the Trump supporters. But at least the media could acknowledge that I have a college degree, and that there are plenty of people of color and women among his supporters as well.

    However, keep in mind that I never said that those offended by the other games don't have legitimate reasons to be upset, or that their complaints are invalid. I use the snowflake moniker for those who believe they have the right to not be offended. Who use violence and threats to trout down discussion, or try to get the game canceled. You say that there has been a controversy around this game. Where? I've seen several news articles that say there's a controversy, but the only source is a link to a petition to have the game cancelled that is so obviously written as a satire that even the articles don't take seriously. I went out looking for the controversy, and couldn't find it.

    We didn't start a thread calling this game a horrible affront. It was expressed that being offended was unreasonable, and we expressed our opinions. And we're then told we were wrong for being upset because other people weren't (which is what particularly riled me up about the topic). We fully acknowledge their right to make the game, and just say that we don't like this aspect and aren't going to purchase it because of that (or in my case, because of that and several other things).

    There is nothing wrong with being offended. There is something wrong with silencing or denying others rights, freedoms, and actions because of that offense. I'm offended by it, and that's on me to deal with, not the company, and not the forum. But I am allowed to feel offended, and express that feeling, especially when it's asked for. And if my way of dealing with it is to not buy the game, that is my right as well, and a perfectly reasonable one. If the company doesn't like that, they should make a game that appeals to me.

    Finally, you'll note that I said the only game in the series I played was Blood Dragon. The game in which you're fighting a Bond villain who uses laser sharks. Because that's awesome. I don't typically like the more ultra realistic kill simulator games like the main series.

Video Game Fashions: Atelier Sophie!

by Pumpkin on 04-29-2017 at 04:51 AM
Before Firis came along with her nifty outfits, we had Atelier Sophie! Most of the outfits are for Plachta, her companion, but she has two cute outfits of her own.

Also, a lot of these outfits are very... leotardy, so Imma go ahead and just label this whole edition NSFW just to air on the safe side!

So let's start with Sophie:



I like this outfit from the back

Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 3!

by Pumpkin on 03-14-2017 at 08:58 PM
Today we are doing Marie Rose, Momiji, Naotora, and Nyotengu!

First for Marie Rose!



This is her classic outfit, which I mostly like for the boots. It's a cute enough dress, though.



One again, I am a fan of asymmetry, roses, and the colour pink and it's all combined here! Not the best, but I still like it.
