    Meanwhile on RLLMJP someone has just posted - How do you feel about the glorification of violence and the fascination of war in Western games?

    Camel toe close up on kicking girl on one side / Highly detailed slow motion shot of bullet going through human head on other. Both bad things to be controlling on a daily basis.


    you are whatabouting sexual objectification of children?

     

    fucking hell

    Wish I could play it.. remember reading all the previews/reviews and saving up for months when it first came out. Only to discover that running around the levels made me want to throw up all the time! Awful :( Only seemed to effect me on a few titles back then.

     

    just like half life

    Gotta feel for Mark Hamill accidentally liking a JKR dump on tweet when he meant to like the tweet she was dumping on. RIP his mentions.

     

    It was quite the blunder though, and too a while for Mark to explain.

     

    If you like awful tweets by JKR, is it not right that you get some shit?

    I don’t think JK Rowling needs any more money to send her tweets and be mean. I suspect the money she gets from this game won’t make much difference to her in real terms.

     

    but it will broaden her reach

     

    cognitive dissonance, which has been used to describe emotions above in this thread, really does apply here.

     

     

  5. There has to be a line somewhere

     

    For some, it seems that JRK being a hateful bigot and the game funding that abuse/ highlighting her is crossing a line.

     

    If for you its not, then so be it.

     

    Where is your line?

     

     

  6. its always going to be a problem.

     

    The pocket is perfect for games on the move, and playing your original nintendo (and others) carts.

     

    if you are never going to play on the go, or are playing for long periods at home you NEED the dock - and a controller.

     

    that's how i use mine.

     

    but yes, the MISTER and other analogue consoles are better value for you,

    What do you mean by your question?

     

    I was asking a question about copyright and youtube. Zero interest in getting involved in the latest uk retro scene aggro beyond that.

     

    your use of language and in particular "stung"

     

    > "I'm just curious as I didn't know it was so easy to be stung for a fairly significant amount of money on youtube, "

     

    It's a word that means to swindle or exorbitantly overcharge.

     

    No one is swindling or overcharging anyone

    Did he have no alternative but to pay the 500 quid? Could he have disputed it/taken down the video/removed the picture/argued fair use etc?

    I'm just curious as I didn't know it was so easy to be stung for a fairly significant amount of money on youtube, as opposed to just having the video demonitized or taken down, considering how much of retro gaming YouTube is based around some sort of iffy copyright stuff. 

    I've never heard of anything more punitive than a video being taken down/demonitised, but maybe it's a common occurance?

     

     

    "stung"?

     

    what do you mean by that?

  9. I know they weren’t meaning to, but someone has perfectly defined the word “cartel”. 

     

    “a group of independent market participants who collude with each other in order to improve their profits and dominate the market. Cartels are usually associations in the same sphere of business, and thus an alliance of rivals. Most jurisdictions consider it anti-competitive behavior and have outlawed such practices.”

  10. Whenever money is involved, and we are really talking about big money (enough to quit your day job not a few pounds here and there) things get ugly. 

     

    Is there really a retro mafia that the above lemon video suggests?

    A closed shop, where the cabal actively tries to keep others out, unfriendly and unwelcoming?
