There was never any alt. You got bamboozled. …
Not as funny for the thing I was going for. I just think it’s funny to quote someone as just saying “You liar!” lol.
But I wasn’t sure how to convey that correctly. Since Wisconcom also likes to pretend we doctor screenshots to make him look bad, I didn’t want to just delete the blackened part either.

No but I can totally see that it’s gonna be a buggy mess that looks like a triple A game but doesn’t play like one because of minor stuff that in the end ruins the game, like your character’s momentum when walking or prompts to interact showing just a little bit late or you have to get in a weird position to get them to appear. It might also have suspiciously low res textures in some areas, namely all the areas that weren’t made to look super good for the screenshots or promotional material. Possibly there will be some weird design choices that devs stopped doing ten years ago, and this will automatically make the game look much more dated than it is. If you’ve played the Sherlock Holmes games from Bullfrog, this is exactly what I’m talking about.
It will probably get a good score from the press because like you said, open world harry potter for the first time, and then they will revisit the game 5 years down the line and admit it wasn’t actually that good in hindsight like they did Bioshock Infinite. The players will be mostly divided in two camps: the reactionaries praising the game despite having barely played it before they dropped it because “that’ll show the wokes” (but the game isn’t that good so they didn’t play more than the prologue), and the liberals who will automatically 1-star the game due to Rowling. Then after that you’ll have the more radical leftists, like communists and anarchists, giving the game a proper review and admitting that it’s not that good after all, even if you judge the game on its own merits.
Someone will inevitably say “I really wanted to like this game… but I can’t”, and not because of the controversy, but because it’s a passably meh game at best.
Just a very strong hunch. We’ll see if I’m right or not. I am not basing this on much at all, it just calls to me.
This thread has run its course and there’s not much left to add so I’m going to exercise an executive move and lock the comments.
In general, I want to reiterate we are not reddit and we don’t tolerate personal attacks against other comrades. I don’t want to start banning people over this but we will if we have to.
We don’t police for every opinion users may have, so the problem is not – from the admin standpoint – that people support or don’t support religion, the problem is how people get that message across.
There’s perfectly reasonable ways to talk about this topic but honestly, if it’s clear your interlocutor is not going to change their mind, then you’re probably better off just dropping the topic.
Comrade, I will have to ask that you please calm down in discussions regarding religion. We’re not Reddit, and we work hard to foster an accepting and generally chill atmosphere on lemmygrad. Aside from the occasional lib wandering in once in a while, we’re all MLs here and there is no reason to get nasty towards each other.
To go on Twitter, I don’t just open a new tab and type Twitter dot com …
I must expand on the Mushroom Kingdom’s economy.
Their economy is clearly tech-heavy, much like Israel. With no natural resources and nothing to sell, they turned to state-of-the-art tech to sell to wealthier countries.
For example, they boast the eminent Prof. E. Gad. who is the worldwide leading expert in vacuum technologies and optics.
What do you make with optics? Drones and other recon tech. Vacuum tech? Explosives and missiles. Specifically ICBMs.
You think the Mushroom Kingdom doesn’t make weapons? What are Bob-ombs then? Highly advanced AI with a detonative charge inside a shell. Boston Dynamics has nothing on the Mushroom Kingdom’s defence contractors.
Where does Bowser get his weapons? The Mushroom Kingdom sells its weapons to the USA (among other imperialist nations) and the US sells those back to Bowser’s faction. The Contra tactic.
This is AI generated but I dig the vibes…
What will he post 👀…
I mean come on guys, do you think that’s something the Avengers would do???..
He is clearly helping retain the absolute monarchy in power. …
