I wish the only positives I could say was at least this wasn't a room full of Ukrainians trying to see if I was an undercover cop or not.

Her favorite games were telltale games, she asked me what mine were and got annoyed that they were nothing she knew, she cut me off and said "well do you play anything that anyone normal would actually WANT to play?"

The unkindest cut of all.  :parsons:

I also want to say that the janitors on /v/ are incredibly protective of the switch, they're now gassing any and all threads relating to sony exclusives and the banning people for mentioning the new switch emulator.

Also I'm eager to see the blowback from norse god of War, supposedly in the opening movie Kratos has a dream where he's in a desert and he's walking and he's stopped by three men on camels asking him if he's seen the star in the sky that they're following.

The Three wise men were seen in GOW 1 in a mural after you solved one of the puzzles so they're really are going to tie it in to what's already been established. GOW 1 also had the ending to 3 being forshadowed as well.

I assume Kratos then proceeds to slaughter them all and find the barn Jesus was born in and burn it to the ground?

Had an interview today and had a real cunt of an HR lady for the interviewer she was actually trying to bait people into political arguments with her questions. Her hair was purple and I mean even more purple than that lady in the last jedi, this was a bright purple, a twilight sparkle purple, fucking drank levels of purple.

A major overuse of the word cringey when she was looking through my portfolio, majority of it is buildings and environments nothing grotesque. But she had a problem with everything being war-like or ancient structures in ruins. Because the essence of war permeated throughout which made everything toxic and overly masculine.

Her favorite games were telltale games, she asked me what mine were and got annoyed that they were nothing she knew, she cut me off and said "well do you play anything that anyone normal would actually WANT to play?"

Asked me many questions about Anita Sarkeesian and twitter dramas, I remained neutral in my responses

Wanted to know if I could properly model accurate minority characters, I said yes I can model humans but this was for an environmental modeling position so I had those take the forefront.

My monster designs like cyber dragons and other stuff she discarded calling them cringey boy shit. Most of the designs took references from Panzer Dragoon and Morrowind so they resemble those types of designs.

Not the rudest interview I've had but it comes close.

Who were you interviewing with? Riot?

So in case you're wondering why TLOU 2 is taking ungodly long to come out this is why. ND made a bunch of assets to be used throughout the game for enemies, including female enemies. The randomized enemy bits work just like uncharted where they'll spawn out of a bunch of set parts so they don't all look the same, and the skin colors will be different as well.

Naughty Dog sucked the cock of the politically correct to the point where all the fag hags would tut tut over every single change. You can't have females or minorities be bad guys so this meant assorted types of white people, but then oh wait upon closer inspect those white people assets could be interpreted as jewish, trans, or even Persian, but having every enemy look the same didn't work either from a gameplay perspective either since there was no variation and made the game appear cheap. It got to the point where they had to crawl back to Sony because no progress was being made in the name of Progress.

For a game that centered around a middle aged man and his child bride, it seems pretty silly to criticize the sequel for mistreating women.

The violence in the first game was justified because they were able to play through the whole game and not judge the entirety of everything on a trailer.

I did play it and that is what it's about. They put in a "his daughter died so this girl is replacement daughter" for the people who don't care about (or didn't pay attention to) the subtext.

If that is NOT what it's about, then the plot and morality of the game are about 1000% less interesting, and become just regular zombie survival game bs. If the main characters are in an unacknowledged sexual relationship, however, then it is a very clever question of ethics and morality in an apocalyptic scenario. The older guy genuinely cares for the girl, and she needs him to survive. Without the relationship, she would probably die and he wouldn't have anyone. Also, given that they are part of a rapidly thinning population of humans, the morality involved in age of consent becomes rather gray.

There are a lot of Last of Us fanatics who hate that analysis, because they desperately want the game to be this heartwarming, easily palatable, feel-good story about a 40 year old man who travels the post-apocalyptic wasteland with a 14 year old girl. And despite the fact that there are basically no sexually viable women on the entire planet (to their knowledge), and there are no possible repercussions or consequences based in the original law of the land, both of them are essentially asexual beings that travel around exclusively platonic.

Besides that, there a bunch of scenes that show innuendo or place the characters in questionable situations. When I first started playing it I noticed it more as a joke, but then about halfway through I realized it was the genuine subplot. It has been like 5 years since I played it, so I don't remember exact examples anymore, but if you play it just pay attention.

If that isn't what it's about, then the writing between the two main characters is terrible. That is a possibility, but given the rest of the writing is pretty good, I doubt it.

I know the guy who's cult operated out of a Steakhouse was a pedophile but Joel really didn't have it comes across that way, it just was surrogate daughter stuff.

I don't recall the plot too well because, really, who gives a shit?  But my recollection is that Ellie is still fairly young when they're together and doesn't really "mature" until after they're separated.  When they do reunite, the guy almost immediately sells Ellie to the doctor lady to be experimented on.

Now if Ellie started the game as a 16 year old instead of 12 (or whatever age she was), then yeah, they'd be fucking like crazy.  But at her age in the game, I didn't see the implication.

Monster Hunter is literally about conservation. Like, hunters are literally like super-powered park/game rangers and the Hunter's Guild is dedicated to both ensuring the survival of humans while making sure biodiversity is protected. It's environmentalist as fuck.

Their definition of colonialism is white people on a boat sailing to a land with no civilization and establishing facilities where before there were none.

Essentially any sort of exploration venture.

Yeah, this.  Ellie is his surrogate daughter.  Other than when she finds the gay guy's porn stash, there's no other sexual stuff in the game that I can remember.
