We, the Dread


Electric Pence has revealed the plot of Far Cry 5: Theodore Keal, leader of the Red Ilk Gang, has been terrorizing the inhabitants of Justopia for years...until Joan Kalzi resisted.

That is the header from my old WND column, by the way, colorized by an artist.

BTW, the dog/wolf's face is almost surely a visual callout to the Garth Ennis/Jacen Burrows alt-comic Crossed, which is about as dark and apocalyptic as I can bring myself to read these days, or more so. Anyway, it's shorthand for "serious badass".

Sounds like there's some grudging respect happening here.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft May 25, 2017 4:09 PM  

"neither compound bow or crossbow have anything on a decent broadsword or katana. Not sure if the katana is better than the broadsword though..."

Definitely the broadsword. There've been a few comparisons, and katanas are designed for no or light armor (think bundles of sticks tied together, or thin wooden boards studded onto a thin piece of leather). Katanas are great for slicing, but they certainly aren't ideal for thrusting, and slicing won't do squat against even a typical loose chain mail, let alone some really good armor.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft May 25, 2017 4:13 PM  

I should also point out that arbalests (a kind of crossbow with a metal [usually steel] limb instead of a wooden one) were banned by a certain pope, essentially because the power to kill a knight in full plate armor should not be obtainable by a peasant. Such bans were not uncommon at the time.

TL;DR: Crossbow wins, if you've got a decent one and a steady aim. It's pretty much the equivalent to a modern hunting rifle/handgun. Broadswords have nothing on them if you never get in close enough to use them.

@7 Except bows are remote weapons which can drop you before you can be near enough to use a katana or broadsword.

See Agincourt. (and I forget, St. Augustine, FL?) If a projectile can penetrate armor from a safe distance, close in or hand to hand is irrelevant.

Speaking as a swordsman the Katana is an excellent weapon but it is also over rated.

The requirement for two handed use negates the use of a shield or buckler.

It's minimum engagement range is also problematic. Get with in one foot of a Katana's wielder and his tactics and techniques are nullified. He has to disengage and backpedal. That is a real problem if there is a mass of men standing directly behind you.

It's a specialized weapon for stylized duels.

Basically it's great if you are fighting another kendo jock in a ballroom.

I played Homefront: The Revolution recently, buying it for $4 from a second-hand store in town that's always swamped with multiple copies of the new Ubisoft title a few weeks after release.

It's a Red Dawn ripoff, where North Korea invades the USA. You play as the Resistance.

In an early scene, you're tied to a chair whilst a woman with dark circles under her eyes and multiple ugly facial piercings, gets far too close to the screen and tortures you slowly whilst constantly-swearing.

I sat through it, thinking how much Liberal Writers love Over-Verbose Bad Guys, and thinking "Well, at least they made her hateful enough killing her to shut her up is a good motivational goal."

Then the cutscene ended, and I discovered two things: this hideous, repellent creature is meant to be one of the 'Good Guys', and you can't skip any cut-scenes in the game, because I realised had zero emotional investment in the story if it meant sitting through endless scenes of her talking.

You can't even ignore her orders: the game warns you with a timer if you stray 'too far' from mission.

I tried. Multiple times.

I cheered her self-sacrificial death towards the end of the game - though seemingly-pointless and unnecessary to me, and which would be condemned as 'toxic masculinity' if a male character did it - only wishing the game had allowed me the moral choice to betray the entire resistance.

No wonder they couldn't understand how unpopular Hillary was. Functionality itself repels them.

Iacobus, thanks for the tip re: a not-yet-SJW gaming site with forums.

The IGN thread on this is spectacular. Approaching 500 comments, and some wonderful argument against the also-resident SJWs.

Apparently, divergent viewpoint are allowed there, unlike Gamespot, Polygon, RPS, and Destructoid. That'll last about six months, in my experienced estimation.

I'm not going to register. I'd probably note that they are decidedly alt-right in their willingness to tolerate the alt-right comments and arguments, and then I'd be banned forever. Like I did at Destructoid. I posted, "Hey, you guys are like alt-right! I love it here! Nobody needs a safe space! How cool!" Instant shitshow in the comments. Banned in 2 hours.

Wrongspeak, I guess.

If I registered and commented at IGN, I'd probably misstep and say "Wow, this place is wonderful! Some of you commenters are as prolific and intelligent as the comments at American Thinker or Vox Popoli!" And I would be banned at once.

Maybe not, though. Humungous thread, compared to the other big gaming sites.

Now by then we may have swung back around to cucked Liberal leadership here in the US. IF the US sides with the Globalists, as Clinton did when he bombed Yugoslavia, are we to stay here and rage, do we immigrate to join our European kin in arms, or do we simply go full Reconquista 2.0 here in the states, and hope the military will be a lame duck out of sympathy for our side?

The point is to be prepared, to know yourself, to know your enemy, and to support your friends.
In 1914, Britain did not have a mutual defence pact with France. They were dragged into the war by Belgium, an artificial state the British created explicitly to break French military power when they won the Napoleonic wars. The whole point of creating Belgium and setting up their favorite double-dealing arms merchant as king was to avoid being dragged in to another Continental war.

@Sterling Pilgrim: The problem is that no one knows exactly how things are going to shake out. One thing is to identify your real nationality and then live in your nations ethnic homeland. This potentially removes a host of problems. It can dramatically increase the likelihood of your survival.

For Americans this can get a little complicated to nigh impossible. Since I am a Southerner, I have it easy in this regard. I know precisely where I should be and that is where I am.

For others, your mileage may vary and what passes for your ethnic homeland may not be a tenable position.

I agree with Snidely Whiplash: any advice he gives would be worse than useless.

The optimum course is to stay home and go full Reconquista. It is the harder road and less glamorous, but more productive. (Exceptions: an overseas mission with limited and high-value objectives, or pure short-term survival.) Start as you mean to go on and play to win. Cut the drones away from the public teat and the Globalists away from their legal camouflage with some simple absolutes:

Unalienable right to vote. Unalienable right to bear arms. Unalienable right of free speech. Government constitutionally unable to borrow or lend on the public purse. Only citizens of a nation permitted to own land of that nation (and a corporation, although a "person" in law, is not a citizen). What a woman does with her foetus is no-one else's damn business.

The military (and the police) are not players in this. Soldiers kill people and break things. Cops clean up after the shouting and shoving. Do not expect them as entities to take sides.

I didn't know what was going on until I looked further into it & saw the likeness & this touch up. But now that we're in the Trump Era, there's probably more people than we would believe looking at your posts, and it frightens many many others. Not blowing smoke up your arse (well I am) but you're the Conscience of Anglo America. How many other intellectuals can piece together the various events & strands with the long view? A few, but not with the grounded Christ-centred faith that Washington & Madison had too. The world's burning but the Truth is out there.

Alright, this really is hits a nerve.

The Disciples and the Church Fathers considered it an honor to be martyred on a cross. According to tradition, Peter requested to be crucified upside down so as not to be equal to Christ's death. Why exactly would any Christian kill an enemy in a way that is considered an honor? In fact, why would any Christian kill any enemy that they didn't have to?

It makes no sense to punish a criminal with execution via crucifixion as a Christian in my opinion.

Why exactly would any Christian kill an enemy in a way that is considered an honor?

Because crucifixion is a terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE way to die. The reason why the Romans liked to use it wasn't because it was a nice friendly way to kill people, after all.

I guess they're going for more of a classic Western approach, just that the "outlaw gang" are some doomsday cult. (Apparently the Cross is very similar to a Scientologist symbol.)

Expanded version of the Box Art, so the full "Last Supper" copy.

I concur.

@102 Note that Venturebeat doesn't even allow comments at all.

No, that would be bad, facilitating debate. Can't have that.

I watched the trailers that came out today.

There are a bunch of scenes where this (ostensibly christian) cult is dragging people around and killing them...

I mean, Christians do that all the time though.

Hopefully we can play for the bad guys.

Saw some of the other trailers of the protagonists (I'm assuming). One is a black priest who's gonna get his revenge on those rednecks for them stealing his flock for...you know...deceiving about religion and whatnot.

Another is a pilot who whines about his father and grandfather fighting in wars so that he didn't have to...but ends up fighting anyway so that his own son doesn't have to. (Seriously, fourth graders write better fiction than this.)

Appears Far Cry series are modable. A few slight mods, this game could be a winner.

The guy at the right end of the table looks to have survived a crucifixion.

That's actually Milo. The whole "naked and tied-up" thing was actually his idea.
