I'm Nurvuss and I like making music and games and writing stuff. Sometimes it seems that I never have enough time to do any of these things. Let's be pals!

Can we talk about the Mike Brown/Eric Garner/etc situation?

You know how in Earthbound you could enter "Your favourite thing" in the beginning?

My favourite thing is white people arguing about racism on the internet

OH YOU <3 <3 <3

If you guys phrased all of this as "Racism in the USA" I wouldn't mind, but currently it's kinda disrepectful. White people get all sorts of shit outside of the West.

'Getting shit' is much different than racism. One cannot confound racism, a form of oppression on an institutional level, with prejudice. White people were colonialists, and colonialism is a mega-racist practice. I do not feel that tensions between white people and non-whites due to a history of colonialism and oppression can be defined as racism. I have to agree with Mawk here.

Being white doesn't mean you can grab cops guns and not be killed. Go ahead, try it.

Are you sure?

RPG games where you name and customise the characters

Mont Asall by Ocean comes to mind.

There's this little nugget of joy from six weeks ago. The police are completely out of control. My white male privilege affords me protection from a great deal of this violence, but I still don't want to live on this planet right now.

In the mean time here is a video already linked in this very thread of a bunch of cops (one is a minority) beating Kelly Thomas to death for no reason. He was white. He had long hair. He was also a homeless schizophrenic but personally I'm like 80% sure they didn't even KNOW those last ones. They sure didn't care, in any case. Anyway his "white privilege" did not help him as he was screaming in agony and terror as the police murdered him.

The police did know; Thomas was very well known to the Orange County Sheriff Dept, having dealt with them nearly 100 times over a ten year period. They were just sick of dealing with him and decided to fuck him up, because that's what these macho sadists would rather do than actually get a mentally-disabled man some help.

Anyway, c'mon, we both know a shaggy homeless white man, or a disabled or mentally ill white man, will not be afforded the same amount of privilege as an able-bodied and self-sufficient white man. There is institutionalized classism and ableism at play here, as well as racism.

I look forward to seeing how this plays out :) I love the aesthetic.

Visual novels for people who are terrible at puzzles

The Wolf Among Us is based on the comic Fables. It's a noir/detective story in which you play as the Big Bad Wolf who's tasked with solving the murder of several fable characters. It has its ups and downs but it's a pretty good experience on the whole.

The World To Revese
is free, and possibly one of my top ten favorite games of all time. I realize I'm probably in the minority here.

Visual novels for people who are terrible at puzzles

actually, speaking of point and click adventure games, Telltale's Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us are character-focused point and click adventures that don't really have any puzzles to speak of. Have you tried those?

Visual novels for people who are terrible at puzzles

Are you talking about games made by the community, or commercial, or either?

A traditional visual novel contains no puzzles. Most contain choices that branch the stories, but there's a sizeable chunk that are completely non-interactive.

Kinoko Nasu's Tsukihime may be a good place to start. The quality of the writing isn't fantastic, but it's a well-crafted story with some memorable characters.

Hatoful Boyfriend is a wonderful piece of satire, and a wonderful game in general.

What are you jamming to?
