Our genes don't 'often require' our brain to develop in a 'particular context'. The more realistic way to phrase this would be, certain genes would only code properly once there is appropriate...

Affair with a fifteen year old, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe. Skeevy as hell, but something I can imagine grown men doing if they're assholes or in an old enough period setting. But the original idea of her...

I take it that you picked the synthesis option in ME3, huh?

Well, obviously not you, or anyone who genuinely wants a discussion on what we want out of journalism for our beloved hobby. But hang around the Gamergate movement for a while and it starts to feel...

This is why all the 'journalists are saying gamers are dead! Gaming is dead! Well, death to the journalists, to war, friends, to war!' fervor is so sad to me. It's like, people, did you actually read...

Well, I'll be. Didn't catch the sarcasm, oops.
I tend to believe that there's a moderate position on these things, as it happens, so we'll disagree on that (definitions may differ on what makes a...

Most of the time, I'd frown at the tone argument, but on this case I agree with you. Yikes.
Also, I'm really interested in how much Reuters' standards or academic standards apply to enthusiast...
Oh yes, right, I should've mentioned that! Too caught up in my own argument, haha. (Though, then again you get those folks where they're like, 'but muscles are every man's ultimate dream!!', which...
I understand that typing all that out is a handful, but if you're going to jump into a charged discussion on these topics, taking the time to explain yourself is a good thing if you intend to say...

They actually included 'Flight' in their categories! I was thinking it'd be 'Simulation' and lumped with all those quirky German simulator things! ....which, er, don't get a category of their own, so...

............are we arguing about whether cheating is morally wrong or whether cheating is incompatible with feminism again? I'm confused.
Speaking as a geneticist (disclaimer : I don't specialize in H. sapiens), I'm not sure if I would say the male desire to save females has been programmed through evolution....what is the basis of it?...

I lived in US for a while, the costs of living in big cities are absolutely insane. SF is also one of the biggest offenders, I heard.
That said, 10K isn't just salary, it's also overhead per...

Oh, that's what you've been intending to say. Well, yeah, that one I agree with. I just hate shitty lazy writing that stigmatises people, which is why I complained about it. :/ (Although I don't...
Er, why not? Seems like progress to me. It's liberating and de-objectifying through absurdity, is how I see it. If you're going to bludgeon people to death anyway, why not with a purple dildo?

Okay, fine, I stand corrected on that front. Thanks for bringing that up, I didn't know.
But the world is a dismal place. In general. Darker things happen all the time, and they don't...

1. The journalistic integrity angle needs to be debunked and talked about if we're ever going to settle this issue and kick away the smokescreen, though. Remove the smokescreen, and the nasties will...

Yeah, and it'd actually be insightful and useful for once. Talk about missed opportunities. So many things you could've dug into and opined about, alongside the harassment and feminism bits! But no,...

Wow, that Telegraph article doesn't even attempt to be neutral about the matter, does it? 'Dark world of video games', what a sensational headline. And of course it's all about ZQ, sigh.
What. What did I just.
This looks delightfully daft! Color me interested, I'm curious about how the RTS would play.

Hold it right there! I've seen countless console gamers die on the hill of semantics in their great wars. I hereby refute your argument of PC Gaming Exclusivity!

The same way as how many gamers talk reminds many ladies of being stereotyped, ridiculed and dismissed for being females, certainly. People who talk in offensive ways are everywhere, for every...

Speaking as an observer, you know a debate has gone to shit when people start arguing semantics. Just saying.
"We are in agreement that these fellows are vile. What knaves they are, friend."

Me, too. I love it when people cover social issues in games, especially in the thoughtful, gently funny way RPS used to do. It's been getting angrier and more defensive lately, which.......I...

The original negative meaning of SJW referred to 'keyboard warriors', I think, people who would repeat social justice opinions that they find to be 'acceptable within the community' for whatever...
