Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    It is always stereotypically the rifle that the women would go for right?

    Or.

    The woman taking the rifle implies that she is to weak and or unskilled to get into or operate well in the shorter range required by the handgun, so she takes the handgun to upset stereotypes blah blah blah.

    The real answer is the man has sex with the woman at gunpoint, because women are sex objects am i rite?

    Or alternatively, "SOMEONE will at least theoretically take fault with any decision you make, so just try to be fair and write good characters."

    If people want them to make games with non-banal stories, they need to demand games with non-banal stories and to stop buying games with banal stories.

    I don't know why there's a responsibility to be an ethical consumer, but no responsibility to be an ethical producer.

    Good luck here MrMr. Last time I tried to argue that companies have an obligation to more then just their shareholders and the law I got dogpiled.

    It certainly can't be controversial in the single-ownership case: if I own a game studio, then I can do whatever I want with it.

    I see it as a defect of corporate governance that public companies, by contrast, are compelled to maximize shareholder profit. Although I also understand that provision to be one of the few things keeping management in check (not that it succeeds, but you know).

    If it's true, then he may have a case. I mean, if the casino is like, here have this free alcohol and sit down at this table. Just give me your card and we'll give you some chips. Yeah, it'll be alright.

    Gambling is an addiction, and some people can develop problems. On the other hand, fucker should've saved himself the time and hassle and given me the money.

    I answered with "Dear Mr. Nakata" but now I'm doubting if that was right.

    People who say they are something sometimes aren't that something really.

    Edit: And also people who say they are something non-stupid are sometimes actually really stupid about some things.

    hehe, her English was pretty bad anyway, so she might not even have noticed.

    Should have just gone for Dear <full name>.

    If it has nothing to do with feminism why is it 'everything you hate about feminism'? Does not compute.

    Dear <full name> is a little awkward, but it's the right choice if google-fu can't quickly reveal the name's gender, or if it's actually androgynous.

    Seriously Abdhy, you have been on a roll for saying some really patently stupid shit (even compared to your normal stuff) that borders on trolling dude. Take a breather and don't just knee-jerk an incentive statement just to rile people up. This is coming from someone who said, a long time ago

    to make things painfully clear:

    I don't have any problem with feminism, but I still get a "ugh, fuck, feminism" emotional reaction to the topic. This isn't feminism's fault, it's the fault of "feminists". Which is unfair.

    Or it's your own fault.

    That topic just made me vaguely irritated with ELM for asking leading questions.
