I’ve almost entirely given up gaming at this point. Anything more than a few hours a week is a waste of time.
The Majora’s Mask tweet was in response to a hilarious argument between two accounts I follow.
@Reinhard Wolff logo v Beardson is the match-up the people are craving
It’s hard to argue video games are better than books
Different categories imo
Well, they’re obviously different categories but what I’m getting at is that video games fall into the category of things that are okay in small amounts but offer no significant benefits, whereas books offer the potential to dramatically alter people for the better.
Or dramatically alter people for the worse if it's an eldritch tome of forbidden knowledge like the Necronomicon or the King in Yellow
I still play RPGs sometimes. For the compelling stories of course. I also enjoy grinding levels while listening to podcasts. But I agree, it is mostly a waste of time.
If video games don't have the power to alter people for the better, I call that the fault of the author and not the medium. Were the studios not run by communist and nihilist swine, I dare say they could rise to the level of great art.
Yeah, I've always felt that Garry's Mod really spoke to the human spirit
Skyrim was the last hurrah and felt like an opera
Skyrim for the Nords!
Found this when the Utah guys and I were flyering yesterday.
PF actually has a good amount of postering on their twitter.
This example has to be at least a couple months old, interesting to see it worn down like that
Yeah, I was surprised to see it. This was right outside of a university so I didn't think any flyer would last that long.
Those PF guys should just join IE.
My sticker outside a high school had been there for like a year
Over a year, I think, actually
They really should. I’ve talked to a couple who probably wouldn’t make it in the application process, though.
Not that I’m any kind of judge of that, considering I haven’t made it the whole way 😂
@NateDahl76 you can tell. The interactions we have had with the PF types have generally resulted in them doing some LARPy thing from what I have heard.
Like taking some creative license to the tip amount on a restaurant tab...
Lol I would imagine
A lot of PF is people who were/would be rejected by IE. I'm sure some could make the cut, but I'm not sure many could abide by our server rules and guidebook
@Sam Anderson I just made the keyframe location of an element of a video I'm working on rn that larpy tip amount just for you. 👌🏻
Every member of PF i have talked to has lauded IE
PF can do their thing, IE does ours. No reason to conflict or overlap. We want similar worlds, different roads. Of course for branding, and a different target demographic, IE needs to behave differently and that's fine.
Same with TRS and stormer book clubs. They appeal to different types of people and make them productive to the extent that they can be.
I still think we need to concentrate capital as much as possible. But that doesn’t mean countersignalling ofc
And yeah- their leader designs all the propaganda and stuff. Dude is almost totally out of the spotlight
