    FYI: Not even going to read this. I've been drugged (not sure if I was raped since I lost all memories), and also assaulted twice. My friends have been raped, including one who actually killed the guy after she got his gun. Don't need to be further traumatized by Doro.

    Correct. Women don't have ridiculously high rates of rape and sexual assault in the U.S. because they rape themselves. And I suspect the relative domestic violence parity is probably due to a higher percentage of men making reports because they are less afraid of the consequences.

    Oh, ok! I'd lost the tone of the thread. Thanks for clarifying. What do they say? Archetypes? Apparently I need to work on my Sarkeesianese. Cheers, Doro.

    She's my Champions Online beta character. Hell Fox. My favorite Champions character was Calamity Cricket, but she didn't photograph well. Sweden reported today to be considering adding sexist gaming labels to games. Sweden is the #3 happiest country in the world right now, but that ranking may plummet after Doro attacks. http://www.themarysue.com/sweden-gaming-labels/

    Dragon Age: Inquisition

    I've heard the cost of making a game box and physically distributing it are like 50% of the price of a new game. Digital distribution is far cheaper, but that savings was never was passed on to the consumer when the distribution model shifted. The public is still paying the same regardless of how they purchase, even though digital is far more profitable for the publisher.

    That registers as an evil witch/mother trope, which is still about male fantasy, so it's can't support female main characters in games, imo.

    Report from BlizzCon

    Goblins vs. Gnomes is a good idea. Makes me want to play Hearthstone. Not so sure about Overwatch. If they really did borrow or convert the Titan gameworld and won't admit it, then it almost looks like they were in fact making Wildstar so-- Thanks for the write-up. Do you have a personal blog?

    And since this thread has now accomplished Godwin's Law, which violates the #1 forum rule, it should be closed. I'm offended. Either that, or I'm calling out the mods for a humiliating failure to do their jobs.

    This is a fascinating field study in how social structures devolve once the caveman percentage reaches a critical mass.

    There is absolutely pressure from models, even directly from boyfriends. Agree though that picking domestic violence against woman only is a mistake.

    Don't think this is true, but it's another good example of men in this thread overtly feeling defensive from feminism. Maybe you haven't played GTA, Max Payne, or the last Tomb Raider, a game that really gets off on brutalizing Lara.

    New Graphics Card

    Rift's version of Gamebryo uses a single-core, which means all of those AMD cores aren't doing anything for you. The 4Gz seems really good though, so you probably don't need to worry about it. I'm not a technie, but I've just seen the complaints over the years in the Rift forums. Here is a recent thread where people talk about it: http://forums.riftgame.com/general-discussions/newcomers/440776-bad-performance-my-new-pc.html

    New Graphics Card

    Agree with both of these points. I know you don't want AMD for Rift. The graphics card looks super.

    Thanks for posting the Norway thing. Had no idea they and Israel had mandatory military for women. Not sure how I feel about that. I suppose it's fair, just like the men can wear long hair now. Locally here in Arizona, it's a Republican-run smear campaign of half-lies every night. Same old thing. I'm 100% motivated now to go and just pull the Dem lever.
