    The only real communism is the turn-based communism. Never trust the real-time with pause social-democratic hypocrisy.

    Every turn takes 5 years, of course.

    We can do better than that, comrade.

    (Socialist song from the Golden Epoch called Cincinal in 4 and a half years.)

    True, comrade Wunderbar. It is socialism that is being built through honest labor. :salute:

    The comments on Kotaku are pretty salty.

    They’re from liberals though.

    Heh didn't realize they had four different acceptance speeches, since they won every category that they were nominated for (no way I was zipping through that 5 hour stream recording minute by minute).

    Actually it's a good thing Disco wasn't put up for GOTY, since that category already had weeb shit in it and presumably VGA knew millions of rabid weebs would drown out any other type of game. VGA was the hero Disco needed all along, by only slotting the game into niche categories weebs would overlook and therefore it would surely win.

    I took a quick peek at the headlines and Disco is getting a lot of attention because it won in the largest number of categories, beating out Death Stranding.

    Lots of people seem to be hearing about it for the first time now too. This can’t hurt their sales.

    Kasparov and the pretty lady are two separate people, I have seen them in the same room at the same time, there is no way it could be a costume switch.

    Clip should be sent to the guy who footed the bill for Disco. Even back in the Soviet times, he was known to be very anti-Marxist.

    On the off chance that you really don't know, that's Helen Hindpere, a terrific writer and every red-blooded Communist's long-distance crush.

    Margus Linnamäe.

    https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margus_Linnamäe

    (There's no way he doesn't know about ZA/UM's politics. He just doesn't give a shit. As Comrade Lenin said, the capitalist will sell us the rope with which we hang him.)

    I don't think he funded much of the bill on the promise of huge returns on investment, or anything. As I said, most financially oriented investors in the region would not have funded something like this. It is probably largely due to personal connections / other favors.

    I don't think he gives too much of a fuck either about its politics as well, but seeing shout-outs to Marx & Engels must hurt a little bit of his soul. It does hurt mine a bit, frankly, but I don't doubt the awards themselves are well-deserved.
