Neogaf Hypocrisy on Sexual Assault?

Hey All, I’ve been disgusted with all the recent news of women being the victims of sexual assault. And all of the men in power getting away with it because the people close to them, or these organizations are afraid to go against their own.

I’ve been thinking about Neogaf’s owner Evilore. I know people have been banned in the past for bringing this up, but has he ever offered a public apology for his own womanizing and sexual assault story.



Here is the saga below:

The way he talks about grabbing a woman like that makes me uneasy to not ask for a further explanation. From my research, he has never offered a public apology for the sexual assault story.

Are we being hypocritical by not speaking out on this? Am I not realizing a part to this story and overblowing the entire situation?

I realize this post might get me banned anyway considering this has happened to previous members who have tried to bring it up. But during all these horrible news stories of people being quiet and complicit, I’d rather risk loosing my membership than stay quiet.

Yeah we have had that argument a few times I think.

I come down on the side of no it isn't because it is based on attraction, it's exactly the same as not being attracted to someone with ginger hair or big tits or whatever.

You don't dislike them you just aren't attracted it's not racist it is basic attraction.

Thought Errkal was saying grabbing a woman's arse to make them strawberry float off isn't sexual assault. :lol:

Are there any games that let you kill someone's spouce and then take their place?

I'm a fan of open world RPG - mainly Bethesda style games that have deep simulation. I've spent hundreds of hours in Skyrim but always had the one gripe that you I was unable to kill someone's partner and then become the lover/spouse of the bereaved character. Call it a quirk but I've always felt that it would add far more depth into the romance these games attempt and put some skin in the game for myself as a compelling emotional component. It makes the love with the character feel like something I've earned with my own hands - a love I was willing to do dirt for. I wouldn't do something like this in real life but within the confines of a game where its acceptable to play a thief etc... I don't get hung up on the any of the real-world moral melodrama.

Anyways, since its been a while since Skyrim, I was hoping that there's either a full game or modes to an existing game that would let me do this. If it can hit some (if not all) of the following features, it'd be great:

Allow relationships to started or be ended with multiple characters
Allow dialog options with the spouse you kill so they're aware of what you intend to do with their partner after their death. Extra points if they can show different reactions in the dialog tree
Allow partners to go through a grieving period where yo can complete quests to win their affection
Have Mass Effect style love scenes where depending on the effort you put into the relationship, they would state if you were better than their previous partner
Have a main-character (or loyalty) quest for each bereaved spouse may discover what you did and depending on your previous quest successes and your speech stats, allows you to attempt to save your relationship with them
If the couple had children, make side quests where you win their affection


Just from these few points already, you can already see how much more interesting and meaningful relationships in a game becomes.

I legitimately believe Pokemon Sun and Moon was used to influence the U.S. Election.
And I'm not saying Nintendo or Game Freak were involved.

Today, it's been discovered that Russian meddling extended to Pokemon Go among other social media platforms.

First, I have to show off my Pokemon knowledge and make the joke that Team Rocket are off-handedly said to have a branch in Russia in RBY/FRLG, located in either Tiksi or Podkamennaya Tunguska depending on which localization you're using.

But, my main point is that the release of Sun and Moon always irked me. Not the official release, that was the 18th of November, but the release a large amount of the Internet was waiting for was when the games would be leaked to the net and we'd be able to digest everything they had to offer. It happened with X&Y, and it was sure to happen to Sun and Moon...but when?

November 7th, 2016. The day of the election. Now I don't know if this was something that was planned longterm, but when it happened I found it rather funny. I went to the election booth myself and made sure to vote, but otherwise I was glued to my computer until I had to go to work as the information drifted out. I know we had quite a few people on GAF doing the same thing.

But the leak originated on the 4chan Pokemon Board, /vp/. Now we don't know anything about the person who was leaking it, other than they went by the tag "Lurantis" and had acquired the game through some illicit means. They were careful about what they posted to protect their identity, and generally secretive---now it most circumstances this isn't suspicious. I mean it is technically since what he's doing is illegal, but otherwise most people who leak games are secretive.

That being said, with the idea that Russia loved to meddle with the election the secretiveness takes on a whole different level---was this one of Russia's many Social Media strategists doing this specifically on Election Day? As to why they would do it, well, a lot of young folks probably weren't eager to get out and vote in the first place, and those who might have would've likely skipped out on it if something better came along---say, learning about all the cool new stuff in Sun and Moon? Sure, /vp/ may be seen as Trump voters and thus working against that, but I imagine /vp/ was the best way to get it to spread around the more liberal areas of the net and the net benefit of distracting young Hillary voters probably outweighed those who would've voted Trump.

So, that's my theory. Someone with ties to Russia, or sympathetic to Trump, obtained an early copy of Sun and Moon and leaked it to the Internet on Election Day to distract young liberals from going to the polls.

Key words highlighted. I think someone overestimates how important 4chan is in 2017.

EDIT holy gooseberry fool, one of the responses:

Posts like this are why people make fun of Neogaf.


Indeed.
