So guess after all I said (and you ignored) you decided you want to be a homophobic straight white man supporting a product that profits of the exploitation and misrepresentation of gay men….ie. Using 10 year old school yard bullies type humour for laughs. I recommend everyone report that kickstarter for violating their second community guideline…not that it will do any good, since KS themselves are actively promoting homophobia. (But there is no collusion right and this is totally about justice and what is right) To ZQ, guess making gay men the punchline isn’t punching down? Of course you’d be… Read more »

The weirdest thing is. I thought I was the only one who saw Dark Souls as the “hey, you wanna do this hero thing properly?” Which is why I always lean towards the sword and shield combo, it feels like really saying “oh. You want to be a hero then? This ain’t gonna be pretty…” Seriously, dark souls is the closing oppressive statement of those who want to be “the special” ….

Maybe Michael, feeling isolated from his kids, his wife is cheating on him & he is feeling useless since he retired, but women experience this too. Franklin is a worse CJ & CJ as… Read more »

I respect that you guys were annoyed with age restriction policies, but those employees were just doing their jobs. Trust me, thats one of the policies that bosses can terminate employees on the spot for. In Laura’s case, the guy probably carded her because one of the most common rules is that if a person LOOKS under 40, you have to card them.

Yeah those guys were being annoying by refusing the sale, but its reasonable for them to be unwilling to literally risk their jobs for single sale.
