    Also thom's idea about breaking the will of the players as DM being the truly satisfactory form of adversarial DMing is profoundly enjoyable

    There is something deeply irritating about people who refuse to accept any objective or near-objective statement about art or entertainment

    It would have to depend on the statement. Technical aspects can be judged objectively, but ultimately most art or entertainment comes down to "do I like it or not" which is, well, completely subjective.

    I wrote a post today that I'm thinking of making a D&D topic about.

    It's been a while since I braved the cold journey to the peaks of D&D to make a thread.

    I think it's pretty cool to be honest. I also like the creep spread mechanic.

    but being able to produce 7 units simultaneously out of one structure is more beneficial than 200 or so extra minerals. or whatever the chrono boost gives you, not sure exactly what the speed increase is.

    The creep mechanic is fun. It's just the spawn larva mechanic is basically "Every X seconds click a button or you are playing sub-optimally" with chrono boost there is strategy to saving it up or using it on different buildings at different times etc. With the orbital command sometimes its smart to store energy and theres different powers you can use from that energy source that are all very useful, etc.

    Spawn larva is just the boring (but still good) mechanic by comparison.

    that's fair. I like the concept but I understand that it doesn't add strategy, it just adds babysitting.

    ?

    people like different shit

    what you like is probably a product of your culture and background

    It is possible to be more (or less) correct or convincing about so called "subjective" topics

    sometimes it is very important

    khorne came in second in VP, tapeslinger was behind but rocketed up to the rest of us.

    Boardgames need achievements. 4 wins in a row each as a different god should totally give you like, 25 real life points.

    Good shit.

    Spawn larva is my least favourite of the new mechanics - by a long shot.

    I think i like the mules the best, just because with all your command centres on one hotkey you can instantly saturate a new expansion (well, pretty much) if you need to, which is kinda handy while you maynard over SCVs or build some new ones or whatever.

    sarks you're being ridiculous.

    i'm explaining what i don't like about the comics- too full of self-indulgent references and every name drop imaginable. every few pages makes me groan, because i can imagine a 20something liberal who grew up in the late 80s going "heehee, that was cool". i don't like that, it makes it difficult for me to immerse myself in the work. i think it's lame and silly.

    i haven't called anyone a pedophile or a filthy, antisocial geek. you're seriously making me sound way more hateful and judgmental than i'm actually being.

    What I am saying is instead of being satisfied with saying that the comic isn't for you but you don't begrudge other people liking it you are calling the comic bad when it isn't bad, it just falls outside of your own tastes. Basically I don't see why you have to invalidate other people's tastes when all you had to do was say the comic wasn't for you. It's needlessly confrontational and it spurs arguments like these when all it could have been was "this is my personal truth" and then you could have continued to dislike the comic and I could have continued re-reading volume five and it would have been fine.

    There are a lot of things I don't like but I don't call them bad, I recognize that they are good. There is a lot of music, for example, that I can't get into but I believe is technically good. There is no reason for me to call into question other people's tastes and it's not an argument I want to be responsible for starting.

    if you find larry the cable guy amusing then there is something wrong with your brain

    He doesn't even tell jokes! He just rambles like a moron, saying things which are not clever and often require a fundamental misunderstanding of how the subject works in order to find funny.

    It's also an act, and he's also very intelligent and very wealthy. I give the dude props for that.
