    Where the next game SHOULD go (but almost certainly won't)

    First, the story. At the end of Soul Calibur 5, we see Patroklos and Pyrrha (ostensibly) destroy Soul Edge and Soul Calibur, with an appropriately dramatic energy explosion, and then they pledged to go back home. Little did they know that the explosion had been a final attack on the part of the...

    SC2HD Patch Wishlist

    It'd be cool if there was an extra online mode that let you use non-standard weapons.

    HUGE glitch in SCII: HD edition

    So as it turns out, not all attacks will cause the game to freeze - only standing A and 4A. Still totally inexcusable.

    HUGE glitch in SCII: HD edition

    If you select Necrid and Hex Luminae, the game will freeze when you try and attack. How the fuck did that get through playtesting?! >_<

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    Many do, but not necessarily all. I find that pictures are often helpful when trying to get your point across, so here's a picture of different levels of androgen insensitivity syndrome: Now, at which point do you draw the line at male and female genitalia? And this is just one intersex...

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    Again, this definition relies on all people being able to procreate.

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    That's a different debate, and perhaps it's best to leave that can of worms unopened for now, no? It's not a conscious thing. You generally read most people as either male or female pretty much straight away. I'm trying to re-adjust my line of thought so that I don't do that anymore, but it...

    Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

    I'm not sure whether I'll buy DOA5 or not. I haven't played a DOA game since DOA2, but the main thing holding me back is that TTT2 is going to be out soon...

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Unlimited

    It's definitely French. Unfortunately, I'm not fluent in the language, and thus only have a rudimentary idea of what they're saying. :P

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    And what about people who, for whatever reason, are infertile? It was a bit ambiguous, sorry. What I mean is that I don't see body parts as being 'male' or 'female', so to speak. And it's not just genitals and chromosomes. In fact, in day to day life we judge people's sex on various other...

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    No. The same logic can be applied to almost all aspects of a person's personality/identity, really. If a part of who you are is seen as 'normal', you tend to just go along with it. But since there will be certain aspects that are 'unusual', or as not being 'the default', by necessity one has to...

    Age of sexual consent... Is pedophilia real or something we made up?

    My sex ed back in the day was terrible. :/ At any rate, I personally think that someone should have to get a license to have sex. To get that license, they have to be at least 14, and they have to prove that they understand the risks of sexual intercourse (STDs, pregnancy etc.) If they show an...

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    That relates to gender, not necessarily their sex. Binary gender is a similarly dangerous and outdated line of thought. For people who are happy with their gender they were assigned, they don't have to think on it all that much, and therefore it can be tempting to see it as being...

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    It could probably do with some polishing, but the key points are there. It's a common mistake tbf - I just wanted to let you know. :) Saying that someone was assigned/designated female/male at birth is mostly inoffensive. Saying that they're 'biologically' so implies hard-wiring to be a...

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    I do need to stop the occasional sarcastic lines that permeate a lot of my arguments, to be fair. There's no such thing as a human hermaphrodite - 'hermaphrodite' implies fully functioning male and female genitalia. I assume you mean 'intersex'.

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    You should refer to her as 'she', too. It's not easy if you're used to using male pronouns, but after a while you'd soon get used to it. :) (This, of course, is assuming that it's safe to do so)

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    It's not that long. :/ But tl;dr is that the idea of two biological sexes is extremely flawed, and causes unnecessary suffering.

    "Biologically male/female" - an outdated (and harmful) notion

    In many societies throughout history, including most of the Western World today, ‘biological sex’ has been, and continues to be treated as a dichotomy – you’re either male or female, no questions asked. Simple enough, right? Except for the fact that it just doesn’t work that way. The...

    Hilde: Q&A/General Discussion Thread

    Surely you can quickly let it go and press it again when you see the grab coming? Though tbh, if you're frequently getting grabbed when you're playing as Hilde, that suggests that you're not really using her right - you shouldn't be that close to your opponent if you can help it!

    Well, in theory (and by that I mean if they're borderline godlike) they could JG 22B on reaction and punish you. But realistically, it's much more likely to merely be sidestepped. 66K and 66A are your main friends here.
