    Reality vs Adventure reacted to The Blackangel in Will GI Joe ever get an adult style game?   
    It is surprising that a GI Joe game hasn't been made. From what I gather it's a really popular toy. I mean TMNT has a ton of games, so why not a classic? While girls mostly have dolls, I was a huge turtle fan and had every one that came out. I also had the 3 movies. However, that was before they started completely remaking the whole thing.
    But GI Joe has a cartoon, movies, and toys. So (unless I'm missing something) why the hell hasn't there been a GI Joe game?

    I agree, I think a GI Joe MK style game would be a hit! It's such a perfect possibility. GI Joe has tons of characters to choose from variety of backgrounds. And Cobra has seemingly unlimited resources and technology to make an excellent villain and a story with no bounds. Like MK has different worlds and powers and all to make it all that much more interesting. Cobra terrorist organization also makes all sorts of tech that is way advanced with arms dealer Destro whose head is plated in metal. Serpentor is a genetically modified villain created from DNA of historic conquerors and tyrants through world history making him want nothing more than to rule the world. And Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are two ninjas who have been both nemesis and allies reminding me of Sub Zero and Scorpion.

    I would imagine there are a lot of people who would love to see GI Joe get an adult style game and I also feel it would be something that would be very popular if that ever happened. 
    I am very shocked that we have not seen this yet. You mention a GI Joe MK game and knowing how popular MK was and still is, that would definitely get a lot of people interested and be something that we have not seen in a game for a long time.

    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from Lamarr the strelok in Trump gets 3rd indictment for his role on Jan 6!!!! Traitor trump traitor trump traitor trump!!! He's going to prison-orange skin orange suit   
    Trump just went to court and plead not guilty and the magistrate that day warned trump to not make any threats as part of his terms while he awaits trial and Trump verbally agreed to those terms. The very next day Trump posted on his Truth Social:
    This is a clear threat to everybody. Now that Trump violated his stay out of jail card to await trial, it is up to the court to decide what to do about this blatant threat. Is the court going to hold Trump in contempt? Give him a gag order? The court even has the right to make Trump sit in jail or even house arrest while he awaits trial. Will the court hold Trump to any accountability? After that threat, the proctors asked for an order that would prevent Trump from sharing any information to the public because that info that's going to be given to him and his lawyers has the names of witnesses and others involved that Trump could directly attack by announcing their names. And you bet he will do just that. The court needs to take extraordinary measures here. Trump needs to be treated as a mob boss. It's his intention to incite violence against everybody including the judge, jury, prosecutors, witnesses, everything in between. He said it!!! “IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I’M COMING AFTER YOU!” Anybody else awaiting trial says some shit like that, they will be thrown in the slammer to wait trial.
    On top of all this, Trump's charges in Manhattan took a turn for the worse against Trump because Trump was supposed to hold onto documents to be used as evidence and now Trump has supposedly destroyed those documents he was supposed to keep. Now he could possibly get new charges against him for 'spoliation of evidence.' That most likely will even be used against him in the judges decision as it increases his guilt. 
    And this isn't the first time Trump destroyed evidence. His charges for taking classified documents, Trump asked employees to destroy video surveillance that was needed and now Trump got 3 more obstruction charges for it. 
    This guy is a criminal through and through. He's going down hard. And he will bring down the republican party with him. And the republicans still are protecting this guy. The other presidential candidates aren't even trying to go against Trump except maybe one candidate, Chris Christie. All the others aren't even running for president, they are hoping to be Trump's Vice President or hoping to be a part of his administration. Because why wouldn't you capitalize on this opportunity to benefit your own presidential campaign??? Shit, even DeSantis is now running on a campaign where he has stated if he becomes president he's going to "slit throats!" WTF? Presidential candidate is running a campaign how he wants to slit throats of Americans? And Trump is running a campaign how he wants retribution and to punish Americans and he's gonna "come after you." 
    What the fuck is wrong with these republicans? They don't care about being a president for all Americans. They want to be president to punish Americans. Do you think their fascist obsession will ever end? Do you think that one day it will all stop or they will ever be satisfied? No. Hell no. Not ever. These republican presidential candidates and republicans in congress are going to lead this country into a genocide if they get their way. Because their obsession won't ever be satisfied. They can't just one day stop and say that's enough. Not when their entire campaign is to punish the American people.

    Today Trump got his third indictment in Washington D.C. and the prosecutors has also identified 6 co-conspirators who aided in Trump's traitorous scandal. He has 4 federal charges:
    1) Conspiracy to defraud the United States
    2) Conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding
    3) Obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding
    4) Conspiracy against rights
    Trump now has 34 felony counts in Manhattan for violating campaign finance laws to pay hush money to a prostitute, 40 felony counts in Florida for taking classified documents, lying about it, and then obstructing the investigation, and 4 felony counts in D.C. for his role in the coup attempt on Jan 6 2021. That is a total of 78 felony counts. There is also a prosecutor in Georgia who is about to indict Trump for his 4th indictment on racketeering charges for computer trespass (illegally copying data from voting machines) and influencing witnesses which could include how he tried to get the secretary of state in Georgia to somehow miraculously find more votes for Trump. 
    On top of that, Michigan has now criminally charged 16 republicans for their fake electors plot. There were several states involved with the fake electors plot and those republicans in others states are now being investigated for their role trying to stage a coup. All 16 republicans in Michigan are charged with 8 felony counts:
    1) Conspiracy to commit forgery
    2) Forgery
    3) Forgery
    4) Conspiracy to commit uttering and publishing
    5) Uttering and publishing
    6) Conspiracy to commit election law forgery
    7) Election law forgery
    😎 Election law forgery
    These fake electors from multiple states all tried to disenfranchise voters and their true representative by creating fake electors and trying to get vice president Mike Pence to sign off on it which would have overturned the entire election and given it to Trump. Luckily Pence refused and probably saved himself a prison sentence. 
    This is going to be very crazy in the USA the coming years. These traitors are straight up fascists who are sociopaths and could care less about this country or anybody's rights. They are here for one purpose, to destroy democracy and force a dictatorship Nazi Germany style. That's who they are. Several Proud Boys members and Oath keepers members, who are far right street thugs, gang members, and fascist militias, have already plead guilty to seditious conspiracy for their role on Jan 6 2021 and now will go to prison. 
    Trump's charges in Florida, taking classified documents, no doubt will get obstructed by the judge handling his case. Trump appointed Judge Cannon himself when he was president and she is a Trump loyalist who has already made herself look incompetent and partisan. She no doubt is going to do whatever she can to let Trump walk free. Judge Cannon has already moved the court to a MAGA dominant county in Florida so no doubt his jury will all be Trump supporters. We can expect Judge Cannon to block witnesses, toss charges, and obstruct. Luckily, his other charges are in cities Trump had little influence in judges like Manhattan and DC. 
    Even if Trump is found guilty and went to prison, he can still run for president and even be president in the USA. Strangely, in some states felons can't vote but they can be president? The irony. And republicans in congress are actively abusing their powers to try and obstruct Trump's charges. They have attacked the Manhattan prosecutor. They are trying to defund Jack Smith who is the prosecutor for Trump's classified documents and Jan 6 charges. And republicans in Georgia are trying to eliminate the prosecutor there to protect Trump from new charges soon to be coming. And of course Trump himself will do what he does and incite violence and say it's all election interference. Blah blah blah. This will stand the test of time, the test of the justice system in the good ol USA. If republicans succeed in obstructing all of these indictments, then the USA will officially be a banana republic.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Shagger in Does the focus on multiplayer online take away from story telling?   
    I'm in the same boat as @Reality vs Adventure and am pretty much a solo gamer these days, so would obviously want that to be more of a focus to game publisher/developers. However, trying to think outwardly rather of just myself and online multiplayer obviously has mass appeal, and there is nothing with that. However, I don't think the situation now is as bad as it was a few years ago when companies like EA were trying to claim single player games were dead in a pitiful effort to make them dead to the public when that clearly wasn't the case. A lot of great single player games are still being made and a lot of them, like Hogwarts Legacy The Last of Us and just recently Baldur's Gate 3 have been massively successful.
    I would like to see games offer quality in both multiplayer and single player as well, and it's in THAT area we're in a bit of a slump. For some reason game dev's/publishers can deliver good games dedicated to one or the other, but not both in the same package recently. This could be for a number of reasons;
    Game dev's aren't getting the resources and time they need to make games that offer both single player and multiplayer options. Game dev's themselves are spending to much time working only on one or the other because that studio is specialised and thus are not developing the wider range of skills they would need to make games that offer both single and multiplayer options. It could be sheer incompetence and laziness. Or it could be like @Reality vs Adventure said and publishers can't help themselves, thus detract focus from single player in these types of games and pull resources to focus of the potentially more lucrative multiplayer options and microtransactions. It's not there aren't games that have had both done well, like Titanfall 2, COD MW, Halo, Gears of War and Bioshock 2. Even The Last of Us and The Last of Us Remastered when they first came out had Factions, a fantastic multiplayer mode, but Naughty Dog and Sony have long since abandoned it. However, it feels like its been ages since we had a really good game like that and they are sadly missed.

    Did you really expect anything else? Of course he’s going out of his way to intimidate anyone on the prosecutor’s side. He has most likely put a hit on them, which would explain his rotating door of lawyers leaving him. They don’t want to get their own felony charges themselves, so they abandon ship. And the prosecutors that are on the case right now as I’m typing this aren’t the first prosecutors to take up the case. Also, anyone who thinks he’ll face trial is unfortunately deluding themselves. He won’t be here. He’s going to run away to Russia (or possibly NK) like the little bitch coward that he is. He’ll find one of his Nazi lackeys with a pilot’s license to fly him out of the country. Plus a couple to lick his balls and serve him like slaves on the trip. And whatever country he chooses is going to be a nonextradition country. Or one that he happily drops to his knees, the way he does for Putin. We all know Putin won’t return him to America. Don’t forget that he said he was “in love” with Kimmy. Ivanka will be happy he left the country. She might get an actual break from him raping her.
    Maybe I’m the only one that thinks this, but it’s the most likely scenario from what I’m seeing.

    That's not actually possible. What Germany has done-- righly!-- is ban all historic narratives that deny the Holocaust. All history is presented as a narrative, we just have to accept that things are not fair and a narrative that is beneficial to a person or group might also be factually substantial. It's not just about what's taught in schools, they are able to place additional restrictions on the media that the U.S. government cannot because we have the first amendment 'right to be stupid'. Last time the government tried stepping on that right things ended very poorly, so I'm not sure that's the solution we want here.
    Part of why this happened is criticism of the progressivist narrative that was taught for years. This is what I was taught in school. The idea that history is always marching forward, in the morally correct, more scientifically advanced and correct direction and that the past is bad and wrong. It's taught that slavery is a big problem that the civil war is the 'solution' to, then fails to explain why the civil rights movement of the 60s happen. Then, once the schools integrate at the end of that-- which is not discussed as the difficulty it really was-- all racial issues are now tied up neatly in a bow! For some unexplained reason there's still unresolved racial issues in the 80s and 90s... but how can that be if those were 'solved' already in the 60s? Didn't the government force white people to give black people what they wanted? Well, that's the problem with that narrative. Problems crop up seemingly out of nowhere, unexplained then are tidily solved like the end of a very special episode in a way that fails to explain how things are linked, or how the reconstruction era was a colossal failure. So, for want of a better narrative we had to change it. Some people saw an opportunity to impose a narrative that much more overtly benefited them and that's the problem we have now.
    That said, most history classes are now even renamed to be 'citizenship' classes and are used to impose propaganda on students. Public schooling has always been to impose middle class values on working class children, so why not some government propaganda, too? Hellen Keller appears as a 'woman in history' as a way of 'diversifying' the narrative. She presented as a pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps inspirational story about overcoming disability. Fighting for women's rights and so on. They just leave out she became a card-carrying member of the communist party and that she believed strongly working class people were more susceptible to become disabled later in life due to industrial accidents. Why? That part had the black highlighter put over it by the house of un-American activities committee I'm sure.
    Anyway, the problem isn't that history must be told as a narrative, or that that narrative might benefit some people. History does not really exist in factual absolutes most of the time. The only real solution is to attempt to teach competing narratives and perspectives. We shouldn't teach in a way that presents slavery as a correct or good thing. However, teaching slavery in a way that explains why it was useful and to whom it was useful is important (this answer is not actually just 'white people', by the way). Understanding that racism is a social tool used to control people, not just the people who are being transgressed. Rather, the group in power controls each other with racism to create fear and a common enemy. Of course in the real world you're more likely to marry outside your race than your tax bracket, but never mind that.

    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from LeoGrun in Americans Should Be More Upset About The Right Wing Assault On Education And Teachers   
    The U.S. government can’t put restrictions on media because we have the 1st amendment? Shouldn’t banning books fall under that violation of the 1st amendment? 17,000 digital books were banned even for adults at a public library in Texas by a state judge. Shouldn’t banning discussion of history fall under the violation of the 1st amendment? If a student asks a question, can’t the teacher be allowed to answer without fear of losing their job? Shouldn’t banning diversity in college courses fall under the violation of the 1st amendment? This is like the 1950’s red scare where republicans are trying to fire and jail teachers and librarians, and fire, sue, and get rid of tenure of professors all for being considered woke. This is the 2020’s ‘woke scare.’ Same thing.
    The 60’s civil rights movement is easy to explain why it happened, because most of those old slave states segregated blacks. Racism in the 80’s and 90’s and even today has a lot to do with systemic racism. Yes, it does exist. But if anyone says systemic racism exists, then others may say:
    Claiming racism “is a social tool to control people” is like stating systemic racism doesn't really exist and is only used as propaganda to control voters and make them paranoid. No, saying systemic racism exists means we should be aware of it and try to fix it by banning racist gerrymandering so that representatives are not racially motivated in their legislation and they will be forced to legislate for all people in their non racially gerrymandered districts. Even the supreme court ruled that Alabama violated the constitution by racially gerrymandering blacks out of their representation and Alabama, currently today, refuses to honor the supreme court ruling and the state legislators should be criminally charged. Gerrymandering is the most dominant factor contributing to systemic racism. Unfortunately, banning gerrymandering requires a constitutional amendment which republicans would never vote for because many of them condone systemic racism. But of course, that’s all just progressive propaganda to control people right? Critics that think fighting racism is a progressive idea belittles the need to fight racism as if it's just a political ideology instead of a humanitarian issue everyone should be concerned about. Kind of like saying we need clean water is just a progressive ideology but the whole world needs clean water! How is that political or a progressive issue? The supreme court just ruled against clean water regulations. Plus a great example of systemic racism is the Flint Michigan water crisis which had lead in the water greatly affecting a dominant black community and the republican governor and other republican politicians were criminally charged for covering up and neglecting to do anything about it. 
    I’m sorry but I have to disagree. Maybe I’m missing the point of what you are trying to say, no offense. Let’s talk about these 3 concepts: 1) Teach competing narratives and perspectives 2) Teaching slavery why it was useful and to whom it was useful 3) Racism is a social tool used to control people.
    1) There are some wrongs in this world where there is no middle discussion to be had, or competing perspectives, and genocide and slavery are those wrongs. People who want to have competing perspectives take it the wrong way and will try their pro nzi propaganda. Republicans have tried to push opposing views in history and there was a secret recording of a school board meeting at Southlake Tx, Caroll ISD, where a school official said there should be books of opposing views about the Holocaust. You see, that’s what happens when you push for opposing views of violations of human rights because that opposing view is from the view of the oppressor. Imagine if that was never secretly recorded. And imagine how many schools actually have proposed similar opposing views and was never caught or recorded all because of a false belief that everything needs opposing views.
    2) I may need you to clarify what you mean by how slavery was useful and to whom it was useful. I know it was free labor and free sexual abuse and it was a market to sell off humans. So we know it was useful to oppressors. And that’s it. To even think slaves benefited from any skill is wrong. They benefited from their freedom! And in the long run, slavery has made those southern slave states less competitive, least educated, and take the highest amount of government aid because they were too dependent on slavery and segregation to actually better their states. And of course there will be other factors at play, but it's no mere coincidence that many of those former slave states under perform most other states. 
    3) I've explained a bit above how thinking racism is a social tool used to control people is not a correct assumption because systemic racism is in fact a real thing. I believe you are half right and half wrong. You are right because look what happened to the Jews during the Holocaust. That was racism used as a social tool at its finest. Even today republicans are using the powers of government to make white supremacist style laws. Their authoritative agenda is to racially divide people and demonize minority groups, and make laws suppressing them. This is the type of thing that leads to genocide. Democrats or progressives aren't making laws to ban discussion of history, ban diversity, ban books, suppress voters, etc. So yeah, racism is a tool used to control people, and republicans are exercising that tool through power of the government. Progressives and democrats use power of awareness and public opinion. Republican philosophy is against the larger public opinion and so they have given up trying to expand their voting base and instead are bent on taking rights away. Their recent coup attempt is a perfect example how they just want to take power instead of earning it from the people. And they are using kids as political props in two fronts: one is to declare everything as porn and ban it, even books for adults at public libraries. And two, declare everything is CRT or woke and ban everything else including more books written by minority authors. A poem written by a young black girl, Amanda Gorman, for President Biden's inauguration was banned in schools. That really saddens me because I remember posting a video of her giving her poem during the inauguration right here on VGR. And I really liked it, but it got banned.
    If making a civil rights amendment to give people freedom is the same thing as using racism to control people, then I'm baffled. Luckily that's not the case. All you have to do is look at what bills are being passed and by who. Democrats are not making bills to oppress people out of racial victimhood. Republicans are making bills to oppress people out of their claims of racial victimhood.

    Basically, they’re saying that slavery was the best thing to happen to the black people who were abducted, taken away from their homes and families, thrown in chains, and sold as property. This is the kind of bullshit that led to the Ocoee Massacre.
