Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

You mean you haven't learned anything since then?

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

I'm discussing an article that pokes fun at the media jumping to conclusions with a person who buys into the conclusions the media jumped to. How could this have a happy ending?

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

This is how I know you've totally missed the point. The one part of the article that didn't make sense was the reference to Oldboy. That was a baseless and irresponsible comparison.

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

If you genuinely don't understand that analogy, you're a fucking idiot.

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

Don't pretend to misunderstand what I wrote simply because you dislike the analogy.

That kind of reaction is exactly what I'm talking about.

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

Since when does "crappy writing" = "not my taste"?

It's as if I brought a woman in here and you said, "She's ugly."

No, she's not ugly--she's black. You just don't like black people.

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

It's true that sarcasm is a poor excuse for not doing the hard work of thoughtful writing. I think the major flaw of the article, though, is that there's no audience for it.

The article never...

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

Isn't that just a long and vague way of saying that you don't like it? If it's poorly written, you should be able to identify specific flaws in the execution.

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

There's another media influence that I don't think anyone has mentioned. When Cho says, "You had everything you wanted. Your Mercedes wasn’t enough, you brats. Your golden necklaces weren’t enough,...

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

I don't know about that. The 25% figure came from Nick Yee's Daedalus Project, and the 132 million gamers figure came from a Yankee Group report. Those are pretty solid sources.

I don't think...

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

I don't know if you have a friend who's a transvestite or what, but I don't think the article is anti-transvestism. The author doesn't seem to be implying that cross-dressing is morally wrong. In...

Re: Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.

You know, I could visit your MySpace page and post the same comment in response to any one of your blogs. It wouldn't prove anything--except that I feel the need to puke bile on someone.

Virginia Tech shooter may have emulated Lara Croft.
