I sometimes interact with attractive women on here. Some of them are sex workers.
He is just virtue signaling, "I don't discriminate against hookers, I talk to them on twitter as if they are normal human beings."

He follows and replies to their tweets.

purupuru: The sky is blue.

Roguey: No, you're wrong; the sky is blue.



:philosoraptor:
I'd say there's a difference between someone who politely replies to anyone who talks to him and someone who deliberately wants to interact with a particular kind of person.

I agree, but the latter, not the former, strikes me as virtue signaling, and my understanding is he does the latter.

This reminds me of the times i've read people complaining about System Shock 2's controls, not realizing they can rebind them :-P

And these are people who were curious enough and into games enough to try a decades old game.

I see this happening way to often on the chans with the original Deus Ex and Thief, "the controls suck, how did people like this??". Most zoomers are beyond saving. The worst case is when they try games with tank controls, they can't simply conceive the thought of different movement/control modes.

And these are people who were curious enough and into games enough to try a decades old game.

They try them because they're lauded as masterpieces but get filtered pretty soon. Since they're used to instant gratification, they don't see a reason to stick with them and see if they can find enjoyment, they simply move to the next game in the backlog.

My point is that they are still a minority who bothered to even care about these older games, many gamers wont even do that.

One of the smart things Nightdive did for the Enhanced release of the original System Shock was rebind the controls into something a bit more sensibly in-line with modern control schemes. Though it's still an irritation for reasons that can't be fixed (having to frequently switch between freelook and "pick up item" mouse modes). :M

"Even" Matt Barton is like this. In his Daggerfall video, he complained about "weird" controls and lack of mouse look. He didn't even check the settings properly to see it was an option and when I pointed that out to him, that he was misrepresenting the game, he started throwing silly nerdy slangs and this is supposed to be a game nerd.

At least they've added Woedica as a selectable class deity in Deadfire. Best deity.

Did they make evil paladins cool and viable?
You can choke unlawful plebs to death, so yeah. :obviously:

Also the book item that the devs subsequently added postrelease which allows you to interact with Woedica throughout the game is great. :love:
