Yes, because it is, and the creators have said it is. David Gerrold, the writer of the Trouble with Tribbles, flat out said that Star Trek is about social justice.

>> No.39614356

Okay, but you understand that it is possible to have a show about social justice, without necessarily having a show being written by Social Justice Warriors, yes?

To me that term implies a certain amount of blind fanaticism that I just don't see in the Trek writers. Particularly not in the 60s, when there really WERE problems in America, notable ones.

Okay, so Trek definitely tries to shill for Marxism, no doubts there. But TOS definitely was written in a time where there were significant, say, racial troubles. Addressing those troubles can make the show a show about social justice, without necessarily meaning that it's a show about the blind fanaticism of SJWs.

>The real surprise was that Terry Pratchett's Going Postal had received enough nominations to make the shortlist, but Pratchett withdrew it, explaining afterwards to disbelieving fans, "The reason was that I wanted to enjoy the Worldcon. It's not been a good 18 months, and I just know that the Japanese meal I had with friends that night did me more good than an evening of suspense!" So The Algebraist slipped in to take the vacant spot. The only other two known cases of authors withdrawing their novels from the Hugo novel shortlist were Robert Silverberg's The World Inside and James Tiptree Jr's Up The Walls Of The World. Two years ago, Ted Chiang withdrew "Liking What You See: A Documentary" from the Hugo novella shortlist because he felt it was not representative of his best work.

Never really thought that /tg/ is that drunk. I mean, I could actually agree that about 50% of posters are fat, people around here like to fancy themselves way more intellectual than they are and they live in perpetual fantasy land. Not to mention that /tg/ is rather jovial. So yeah. XVII century Polandball aristocracy.

Are you having a giggle mate? Sure, GG was a mass of shitflinging with a nice amount of shitty e-celbs mixed in. But the only "intellectual" or "critical" approaches they have attacked were shitty SJW approaches. Also, those indie developers WERE assholes, just regular assholes, not worthy flinging shit at.

Don't want to burst your bubble anon but you aim a bit too high. Hussars were absolute elite fighters. Not really trying to hype them, historically they were reserved for the best fighters and getting in took a lot of work. Most of aristocracy, during the "aristocratic democracy" days were perpetually drunk, angry, boisterous dummies. Sharing tall tales, occasionally beating the shit out of neighbors, but mostly partying all the time.

They lived in the lands of current Ukraine. But some of those lands belonged to Poland in XVII century. And they often joined Polish army because they were valued soldiers. Also, their fashion and habits got quickly incorporated into polish, aristocratic culture. Painting we are talking about depicts both aristocracy and Cossacks.

Whining that the hollywood morality that film has been forced to accept through years of pretend outrage is not being pandered to by games, instead of playing the fucking games, is not an intellectual approach to gaming. Nor is it a critical approach that distinguishes itself from the constant moral panic that has been thrown at the industry since forever. Gaming had all of that before your favorite youtubing mouth breathers showed up and started demanding importance they don't merit.

No, no, actually it doesn't. It's very reminiscent of the character he was describing.

>> No.39622649

Long story short:

Basically people caught wind of the gaming press having personal relationships with individuals they were covering it (whether it be reviews, recommendations, etc.). Initial suspicions were incorrect but the in depth probing unearthed a google group that was basically discussing what narratives/games to push and what should be left alone. Turns out the lines between journalist and dev were kinda blurred beyond redemption. And when confronted with this or their misrepresentations of narratives/games - rather than shrug it off or ignore it (like big publishers such as Nintendo Power which is obviously just marketing), they chose to misrepresent and berate the community they represent. Naturally this caused it to spread like wildfire.

GG has of course made mistakes in its methodology - though this is hard to qualify due to third party intervention by trolling groups that have been stoking the fires on both sides - but it would not be incorrect to say mistakes have been made. They aren't nearly as bad as they are portrayed to be though.

>Sad Puppies
Meanwhile Sad Puppies - From what I gathered:

>Sad Puppies disagreed with some of the former nominations/winners in previous years
>Sad Puppies then theorized that there was some cliquey shit going on based on political agendas
>Sad Puppies said fuck it and tweeted out asking for support
>Support came in a landslide
So now there is a crossroads. Either the support is entirely ignored - suggesting there was some cliquey shit and reaffirming it in the eyes of Sad Puppies, or Sad Puppies gets some awards. Either way, its a win in Sad Puppies' eyes. The initial push was more or less a check for their theory from what I can tell.

That being said, I am so fucking out of this shit I wouldn't take my word as a guide cause I am just piecing together the stuff as I am going and haven't really paid attention to the Hugos before.

Either way, its two shitstorms that have been brewing for ages.

They (meaning, the guy who writes the Monster Hunter International series) theorized after not winning anything that it wasn't his fault, but actually a Liberal conspiracy, and he needed to send out a call to represent Conservative values because of this blatant attack.
