    2019 Women's World Cup

    Yeah, it's chatter from those who aren't on the pitch, and have probably never scored a goal in their lives, or it's that German commentator on FS1, who's a hypocrite, because her team destroyed Argentina years ago, and the German team celebrated every goal in similar fashion. It would have...

    2019 Women's World Cup

    I look at it as relative to my ability to play, and those I went against. They'd smoke me and my teammates on the field, and for that, they have my respect. I enjoy watching the men's teams too, but I like that the women don't flop as much as the men do, and they rely more on crafty teamwork...

    No doubt! They're on the up and up and their fans are amazing. Also thank you for teaching me a new phrase for that country, "les Pays-Bas".

    A shitstorm is rolling over Blizzard right now due to Diablo Immortals

    I agree, you're right that it's wild speculation. But these grown-men are just so pathetic, wallowing in their disappointment, they deserve to be ridiculed. But I understand, everyone has a different tolerance for embarrassing yourself in public, so it's all relative.

    Battlefield 1 players stop shooting each other for Armistice Day

    Battlefield 1 players stop shooting each other to commemorate Armistice Day Of course, it was brief, and of course some try-hard dork had to ruin it, but the sentiment was there for a bit.

    A shitstorm is rolling over Blizzard right now due to Diablo Immortals

    I understand the fans' disappointment, but for them to act so angry just proves how bored and well-fed they are, with no problems in life. I just couldn't ever stand up in a big convention hall, as a 40 something year old grown man, and ask some snarky question to a guy who only wants to make...

    Thanks, I saw that list too, yesterday. I noticed all those books came out after Earthsea.

    What Are You Reading?

    No I didn't. If I conjured up a sci-fi story set on a desert planet with sandworms, and a young boy's coming of age story, everyone would mock me, and rightly so. I guess the only thing we can establish here is that we have a different set of tolerances for hacks, and that's fine.

    What Are You Reading?

    Ok I see what you're saying, but I would feel guilty as a writer for trying to pass off the idea of a wizard university as cool and unique. Just as if I slightly altered a Led Zeppelin riff and claimed it as my own. Sure LeGuin may not have been the first to come up with that specific idea, but...

    I think she stole the idea of a wizard university and a young student entering it, and then accidentally unleashing the worst evil ever. To be fair, I only read the 1st Harry Potter, and not the rest. So maybe Rowling is super unique.

    Sorry, it's Crusader Kings 2. Great game, kinda like Civilization, except you play as a character, rather than a nation. And the game starts in the 8th century, 'til 1453. They're about to release a new update to the game called Holy Fury, which is supposed to radically change game-play.

    4 centuries into my England run. Started out as Duke of Wessex, me and my vassals conquered the isles, Spain, Brittany, North Africa, and I somehow got Hungary, and am defending against the Mongols in the east. Now I just gotta crack that hard Holy Roman Empire nut. They've gone Bogomilist...

    Social Fraud in Second Life (European Citizen)

    Or you could focus your energies into something creative or helping out others in life, so as to ensure you won't be forgotten after your funeral... Or you could waste your life on this nonsense, like a unimaginitive, uncreative, pretend-victim.

    Also, she stole her whole idea from Ursula K. LeGuin and her Wizard of Earthsea series. Why does nobody ever bring that up?
