  1. My last name isn't really that hard for most people to pronounce. However, it's very uncommon, and it's only a couple letters off from a much more common last name. People often assume my last name is the more common one.

    Watching the CS:GO community flip their shit over going F2P is so so nostalgic.

    Because that's worked so well for every game not named Fortnite or PUBG.
  4. I would like to agree with you. But that was the point of Moby's post. They've been planning to make tumblr more advertiser friendly for months now, to the point of making an algorithm so strict that it flags the very post that announced the changes, but in that wasn't included a ban on extremist politics. We know that they didn't target left wing politics because Verizon was trying to cater to them. So imagine if included in the rules were "oh, and nazis are banned too." There still would have been the shitstorm over the porn ban, but I'd wager a guess that a lot of left wing slacktivists would have attempted to defend tumblr if that was what happened. But they didn't, and if this was a bid to make tumblr easier to monetize, a ban on right wing extremism should have been on the docket if their advertisers actually cared. It's pretty difficult to teach a computer to detect porn. It's a lot less difficult to teach a computer how to recognize words from a white nationalist glossary and build associations between them. They don't even have to be that thorough, since they're clearly not bothered by innocent posts getting caught in the crossfire. Before 2016, I probably would have agreed with you. It sounds like it should be true. But that's not how things play out in reality. Every social media service quietly hosts extremists of all political agendas, and then when one of them acts out, the company will loudly proclaim that it's distancing itself from those people before quietly going back to the status quo once the social fervor dies down.
  5. That doesn't really appear to be true though, at least, not in the US. Associating your brand with outright porn is always seen as a negative because of how the US views sex. Extremist politics, on the other hand, can be a positive, depending on the situation and current events. There's a reason that companies didn't start publicly distancing themselves from right wing extremism until someone died. Extremists are dangerous, but they're devoted. People who are devoted generate clicks and advertising revenue. Most social media platforms are quick to clamp down on nsfw or unmarked nsfw material if it gets posted, but extremists on both ends of the spectrum are usually given a free pass until a point where the potential lost revenue from those outraged outweighs the potential gained revenue from the devoted.

    Speaking of When They Cry AHHHHHHHHH They're actually doing it.
  7. I can't wait for subspuf to become a literal circle jerk.
  8. I'm trying to drink more water, but I get soda cravings a lot.
  9. The only alcohol I've been able to stomach so far is wine. I genuinely enjoy the taste, and everything else I've tried has made me wanna gag.

    The difference between Zenimax working on the game and Bethesda working on the game I’d say is rather significant. Given their reputation, Bethesda likely has a lot of creative freedom. The way that Bethesday and Zenimax would develop similar games may be entirely different. This is just conjecture, of course.

    Because a different studio developed ESO and Bethesda is incompetent.

    It hasn't really flopped. The release is in a week, so they technically still have time to fix it. But, it came out that the $20 price tag isn't intended as an upfront cost to cut down on microtransactions. The microtransactions in Artifact are actually even more brutal than the likes of Hearthstone, ESL, etc. It's not entirely accurate to compare it to F76. F76 is just a bad game. Artifact appears to be a great game, but if Valve doesn't make significant changes, it'll be held back by its business model. (or everyone will play it anyway and validate Valve's bad behavior.)

    Anyone else been keeping up with the Artifact shitstorm? It's amusing that Valve managed to fuck up such an easy cash cow.
