Mass Racist: Andromeda



I don't see what The Rageaholic is upset about. They just hired NK Jemisin to help them with the story. She wouldn't join a racist organization unless... oh. Right.

for some reason I thought the video was going to be of some SJW. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when he busted out the amazing line "what's good for the goose is good for the goatfucker"

lol

Oh, no, Double E. You could accurately call Razorfist many things, but an SJW is not among them, not by a long shot. Watch his Dirty Harry reviews some time. Fun stuff.

Blogger jaericho August 23, 2016 4:22 PM  

It's similar to someone taking Zero Punctuation's videos and ripping out the posh accent and dialing up the anger.

I think they're great.

holy crap, how hadn't I heard of this guy before?!

The only thing that I have done this week which was more fun than listening to this video is reading "Loki''s Child".

Bioware. I used to think they were awesome, but then I went back and played some of their older stuff. I think the main thing was just that games generally have really lousy writing, and Bioware's writing was still mediocre, just somewhat less bad than other games (which had mostly nonexistent writing).

Even their game mechanics sucked.

So Bioware no longer enjoys my rose-colored nostalgia glasses. Good riddance. Even moreso after hiring that professional poo-slinger.

The Rageaholic has some pretty epic rants. I just wish he would post more.

Raciss:

"What we've got here is failure to communicate.

Some men, you just can't reach.

So you get what we had here last week -- which is the way he wants it.

Well, he gets it."

And we are way better at it than Haji. In fact we are good enough at it that we restrain ourselves from indulging even the slightest impulse toward acting upon it lest we slip (again) and start killing "others" by the train load.

If Adam Carolla and Dennis Miller had a son...RazörFist.

If this is your first exposure to Razorfist, go watch his videos on The Shadow and Daredevil. He got No Awarded for a Hugo, and those videos showed why he earned his nomination. (If you want a laugh, go watch his videos on 80s Action movies.)

Exactly my thoughts. I dig it.


They just hired NK Jemisin to help them with the story.

To make the story worse than the previous three games, they'd have to hire Swirsky.

Enjoying the "Metal Mythos" series

He reminds me of Ted Nugent in that video where the cops are shooting at him as he kicks down the door with his guitar

Blogger Doom August 23, 2016 5:42 PM  

I like him. PULL!

Blogger DrAndroSF August 23, 2016 5:43 PM  

A Spoken Word brother to Heartiste's Written Word. Richly textured oracular prose showing off to full advantage the exquisite range of High Demotic English's capacities for colorful and dead-on articulation. Deserves a place in the Post-Apocalyptic Canon. Very enjoyable indeed.

Blogger Nate August 23, 2016 5:46 PM  

wait wait... you're kidding about the half-savage. right?

Blogger Nate August 23, 2016 5:56 PM  

Also... Rageaholic is an artist. The man should be standing in a glass box in the Smithsonian next in the "Holy Crap that was Awesome" wing.

I love this guy's rants. He seriously sends out some good vibes.

They just hired NK Jemisin to help them with the story.

Uh...you didn't introduce her as, "Hugo Award Winning Author, NK Jemisin," Vox.

I think that's required now.

Amazing as it is to say this, she might actually improve it.

Admittedly this is only because the bar is now so catastrophically low.

Blogger ace August 23, 2016 6:11 PM  

For those unaware, Bioware is a converged publisher and (surprisingly) home to the worst writing in the games industry.

Blogger Brian S August 23, 2016 6:11 PM  

this is epic, hahaha

@10 I did see his The Shadow video. It was amazing. Too bad batman gets all the hype and The Shadow only got an Alec Baldwin movie for pre-teens. I'm definitely going to check out his Daredevil video now.

Thanks for the tip I was thinking of buying this game. Now I'm thinking twice.

Blogger Alexandros August 23, 2016 6:31 PM  

He can't be relied upon for actual reviews since his taste in games is often terrible(doom4), but the man is a serious wordsmith who is worth watching anyway.

Anonymous Moonbear August 23, 2016 6:33 PM  

Isn't she hired to write some pre-story novels? Aka superficial fluff? Does one really need to be an excellent writer for that?

I was actually rather looking forward to the game but, I'll admit all the SJW infections are certainly making me weary.

Blogger ace August 23, 2016 6:49 PM  

@20

For the sake of fairness, I should say "some of the worst writing." There are still great writers working for Bioware, as the Krogan Genophage part of ME3 demonstrated.

However you also have wobs like Jennifer "Hamburger" Hepler who want to inject their agenda into things and Mac "lots of speculation from everyone!" Walters, who is responsible for the silly and incoherent way the series ended.

And from the looks of things, I bet the quality writers will eventually be driven out entirely and replaced with SJW planetoids and their cucks-in-waiting.

OpenID aew51183 August 23, 2016 6:58 PM  

@27

The Krogan in general are awesome.

For instance, their environmental stance: "The planet hates us, and we hate it."

Having seen behind the curtain I think they're another case of "straw man has a point" a-la redskull.

Blogger Someone August 23, 2016 7:23 PM  

Sorry to derail, but: SJWAL has a narrated version? Where? I'd been waiting for it to show up on Amazon or Audible.

Anonymous Godfrey August 23, 2016 7:27 PM  

Vox,

Is it just me or is Hillary's campaign really beginning to resemble "Weekend at Bernie's"?

Blogger SultanOfSuede August 23, 2016 7:37 PM  

I was drinking last night, saw this on XBox One and almost pre-ordered. Glad I didn't. I seldom game anymore, but I'm rethinking by two September pre-orders now.

Vox, thanks for your blog and keep all your readers in your prayers. Thanks.

In his Byte column, Jerry Pournelle would often write about software companies who hated their customers. This guy at Bioware seems to really match that description through genuine malice rather than incompetence. This this guy is still employed there is something really, really wrong with the world.

Anonymous RedJack August 23, 2016 8:20 PM  

I have noticed that when I game, I don't select Bioware. Dragon Age 2 was the cut off, where the guy wouldn't stop hitting on you, and then blew up the church. Project much?

Off-topic:
I just found gmail sent all mail from the .gop top-level domain to my spam folder. There hasn't ever been any spam from that domain, so far as I know - Google playing such overt political dirty tricks should be a major story.

Blogger My Dead Gramps August 23, 2016 8:45 PM  

We don't talk of the Dragon Age sequels. I acquired Inquisition at bargain bin price and still feel ripped off.

Blogger Miss Carnivorous August 23, 2016 10:37 PM  

What many men "Of Color" have is envy of power. Of course they want to be "Alphas", it's only natural. At my local little dog park, there is a tiny, skinny, old Chihuahua, who spends (no pun intended) all his time mounting other male dogs who are up to 10 times his tiny size. He can't weigh more than 4 lbs.

How the hell have I never heard of this guy! Dude just saved me $60 bucks.Fucking subscribed!

Anonymous A Visitor August 23, 2016 10:58 PM  

Besides his use of the Lord's name in vain, dude was dead on, had me laughing hard. "What's good for the goose is good for the goat fucker...magic carpet riding motherfucker...etc" I LOLed hard. The sad thing is ME1, 2, and 3 were great; yes, they had the gay recorded line in ME1 but they were never used and yes Kaidan was a flamer in ME3. Damn it, they were still good games though (by in large).

I don't own a PS4 or an XBox One. My brother owns the former and may be buying ME: Andromeda. If that's the case, I'll play it. One p*ssy does not a harem make (just like that doofus SA director who safely lives in Canada and made District 9 and Elysium)...so brave criticizing people who won't kill you...try that with the Sikhs you wimp (if what was said about the Sikh riots was true)!

Now Mr. Razorfist my good Sir, I would be to asking you not to being say that I make you a slurpee.

Blogger SteelPalm August 24, 2016 1:13 AM  

I remember watching some Razorfist video a long time ago and not really liking his style.

However, what Vox posted above was good, well-edited, and entertaining work.

Will definitely give him a second look.

Anonymous Boogeyman August 24, 2016 1:42 AM  

Sooo ... I'm guessing he's not going to buy the game. I'm also guessing that the shit stain from Bioware in on the SJW list.

Agreeing with Alexandros, can't vouch for his personal taste in games, but he is a very highly entertaining wordsmith who gives very fair and accurate criticisms of several games' weaknesses.

Blogger B.J. August 24, 2016 9:59 AM  

Remember all those episodes of Star Trek TNG where the crew would meet a race with pretensions of enlightenment, and Picard would tear their supposedly superior morals to shreds? Expect nothing like that at all.

Prepare for the most cringe-inducing moral lectures from 'enlightened' races who adopt all the progressive boilerplate. The player will not be given the opportunity to disagree.

Blogger pdwalker August 24, 2016 2:07 PM  

Never heard of this guy.

Very nicely worded rant. I laughed good and hard.
