So, is anyone else around these parts headed into this weekend’s beta? I myself grabbed one of the thousand of keys out there, and I’m tentatively excited about what’s going on. But as is the case with many released mmos, I’ve sort of adopted the ‘once bitten, twice shy’ approach.
That being said, I’m curious about the types of things going in this game, as all I’ve seen are gameplay videos and doctored teasers for content. Things like roleplay hubs, established lore, fun stuff to do, shit like that, that’s what I’m really interested in. Things in the game that’ll keep me coming back.
Basically, is there anything I should keep an eye out for, or try to do in my couple of days in the beta? Also, is anyone else thinking seriously about picking this game up at launch?
Questions, questions, questions.

I got a weekend Beta as well. I’m MOSTLY interested in mechanics of games, so things like classes, combat, questing are the kinds of things I really want to see. I’d LOVE a futuristic MMO to spend some time in, and I want to see if this is it, but I’m remaining cautiously optimistic.

Also got a weekend beta key. Though it’ll likely be an afterthought in the beta, RP is what justifies my sticking to MMOs after the initial leveling + endgame rush so I might keep my eye out.
Honestly tho I just wanna try out engineer. Fun-looking class.

The game looks like it’s a fun take on the typical MMO experience. I also got into the weekend beta and I’m looking forward to trying out the game tomorrow.

so far it seems to have the right ingredients. I’ll have to play it for myself tomorrow to find out for sure.

Question.

What did John Green do to be considered transphobic?

So near as I can tell there was a girl named Laci Green who used the word tranny a few years ago when she was eighteen, and then later apologized for it. John Green said “because she used the word “tranny” ” or something similar, as in quoted the word, and now people are in a hissy fit.

He’s also being criticized for saying some other things he apologized for.

Why did white audiences flock to see Django and 12 Years but not Holiday? Why can you relate more to a film about chattel slavery than you can about nine affluent people and their families? These are questions that need answers.

Olivia Cole (via twobytwomatrices)

One white audience went for DiCaprio and Tarantino and the promise of gratuitous violence despite the nature of the story. The other went for Pitt and the “art of film” as the film had already picked up buzz for awards season, these were the same white people who saw The Butler or Fruitvale (not both) because the white critics said they were worthy of ticket price. Both films despite the nature of their blackness were white operated and approved for the white palate. There was no such approval rating for BMH. White audiences enjoy good black films, they just need to know their safe for white consumption.

This is pretty dumb.
