Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / this game is class warfare

Actually, now that I think of it, there is an easy way to fix this. You can create rooms by level, so why not create the options to create rooms based on specific weapons. So, only pistols, or only uzis, etc.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / this game is class warfare

“Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.” – Thucydides

This game is based on the oppression of the poor. High level weapons completely blow any glock, uzi, or cobra out of the water, regardless of tactics or maneuvers. If one person with a machine gun or shotgun enters the room, the game is effectively over and everyone else will just die repeatedly. Due to the high number of beginners, there is no reason for higher level players to not wreck a room since any player that leaves is easily replaced. Until low level players display solidarity and overthrow the government of kongregate, the bourgeois will continue to oppress us. If however we overthrow the power structure, we can institute a system that is not based on class division but where everyone has equal access to weapons.

Art is subjective, so there is no criteria to categorize them separately.

I nearly facepalmed. If that’s the case then why do we have art programs. Just because we can’t identify objective criteria of ranking art doesn’t mean we don’t know the difference between art and biology.

Topic: Kongregate / One More Game Category Needed

It’s art! No it’s not! Sheesh people calm down. We haven’t been able to come up with a satisfactory definition of art in all our centuries of civilization; I don’t think we’ll be able to do it in one game thread.

Still, there needs to be something that organizes all these games together. The argument that they fit under other categories doesn’t seem persuasive to me; a lot of games can fit comfortably in two genres.

At the very least, maybe we can get a list of these types of games going and figure out how to make sure anyone who wants to hear about them knows.

The one’s that I’ve played and saved are
The Company of Myself
Coma
ImmorTall
Figure 8
Love
e7

If you know others, add them.

Topic: Serious Discussion / USA vs China

USA obviously. Military is far superior. That said, probably won’t happen directly. Given a few years…Chinese military spending is growing, their economy is growing, their population is huge, etc. Here’s the thing: never EVER get involved in a land war in East Asia. You think Afghanistan is bad? China would be Afghanistan^10. Just keep an eye on Taiwan. If there ever is a war, it’ll be about Taiwan formally declaring independence from China (which certain leaders have made hints about) Wouldn’t worry too much though as the guy who’s in there now is pretty much in favor of maintaining the status quo.

Topic: General Gaming / Sorry Axe

Axe,

I feel bad for you. You’ve spent a lot of time on ads that explicitly tell us that lascivious girls will tackle and attempt to rape us if we wear your deodorant. You’ve made it a rite of passage for every semi-pubescent male to make the mistake of buying a can. You tried to make it sexy for goodness sake. All to be beat out by a guy wearing a towel. You tried.

Here’s my problem – how is being chased by a vicious ostrich supposed to make me want to buy axe? I mean it’s pretty common sense that you don’t wear harsh smelling things when you’re out in the wild. I mean I guess it’s edgy and all but still, that stuff smells like paint thinner.

Topic: Kongregate / Exciting big time news! Kongregate's been acquired by GameStop!

Well, I’m having trouble resisting the urge to start screaming about evil companies taking over my internets. That’s mostly an impulse though. I’d just like to know more about what’s happening in specifics. Why did Gamestop buy (besides the “they like us” PR)? Is Gamestop going to clusterfuck the site with ads? Who owns stuff? Who’s pays for stuff?

Still, kongrats to you guys for having such dedication that a company like Gamestop wants to buy. Awesome job.
