"feminists and skeletons" might be my favorite of everything forever
quick link to full image because you need to see “GamerGate supporter loses his job to skeletons on the rampage” in full resolution immediately
Somebody tagged gamergate to an ELIZA style twitterbot*, and now it’s effectively trolling the tag and gamergaters are mansplaining to ‘her’.
IT IS THE FUNNIEST THING.
@ElizaRBarr no sorry not your or specific person, was trying explain to 140 character :)
@ElizaRBarr right now, we have screenshots, used both sides to prove points, screenshots we can’t verify as real or shopped for the mostpart
@ElizaRBarr I don’t think the game press has journalists that would be handle this. too many conflicts of interests/commercial pressures

I dunno, guys, I think there might be something wrong with me.
I don’t know who’s doing the flirting, here, but it seems to be effective.
Given the number of posts I have seen on Tumblr of people bonding over this practice, I feel like this can’t NOT have a place on my blog.
I’ve always wondered at some of the stat boosts you get in RPGs from armors. Like increased hostility from enemy units. My theory is that they are either super jealous or super fashion sensitive.
Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.
To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!
“On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”
I about pissed myself laughing at this.
Ahahahahahaha - the post came back to me. This is so fucking hilairious. I just think about how funny it is sometimes. Reblogging to keep this information of pure beauty circulating FOREVER.
