BioWare Launches "Gay Planet" For the Old Republic

DoctaWatson Re:Inflammatory headline (333 comments)

Not to nitpick, but I'm gonna nitpick:

A. There are no gay relationships in Baldur's Gate or Baldur's Gate 2, by default. They have to be enabled with a 3rd party tool that strips out gender check for those NPC conversations.

B. Bioware didn't even make the original Baldur's Gate.

C. The first gay romance option in a Bioware game was Liara in Mass Effect in 2007. The first gay male romance options in a Bioware game were in Dragon Age in 2009.

Just because you aren't actively looking for messages doesn't mean they aren't being conveyed to you.

How Video Games Reflect Ideology

DoctaWatson Political relevance scales (244 comments)

It may not be particularly interesting to look at the political significance of your turds, but as video games continue to grow as a medium of expression, the importance of attempting to understand their political and social relevance should be obvious.

As a side note, is it really so threatening to look for deeper meaning in the mundane aspects of your life?

DoctaWatson Re:Racism (244 comments)

So what you're saying is that unintentional racism doesn't exist, but anyone who sees racism where you don't is being racist, even if that is not their intention.

How does that work?

What happens when a SSD hits its write limit? Is there catastrophic data loss, or does the ability to write just cease to function while keeping the already written data intact?
