Those memes about women doing the whole "what men think no makeup looks like" bit are not thematically dissimilar to what incels think game looks like. You can't really portray real game and keep your incel audience in a state of belief. That's why forum members will play the Witcher games and cringe at Geralt as being a blue-pilled simp when it comes to women, whereas soyboys will think he's a total Casanova.

Unfortunately incels and young boys are getting a seriously heavy dose of misinformation these days on how to deal with women through these shows and video games in particular that are typically written by other incels portraying what they imagine would work if they could execute it simply by pressing a button or choosing the right dialogue option without becoming a sweaty, stuttering mess.
 
It's all so big-brained now:

You misogynists don't get all those intricate elaborate erudite meanings and symbols that those wonderful writing ladies have put into those shows.

Evil guys being clad in penis-scrotum armor exemplifies the evil of the patriarchy and the evil of the penis. And the big honcho getting his proud wings cut off and looking like a giant egg - that exemplifies that being a strong powerful wealthy evil patriarch is not worth it, because you look stupid.

As for feminist dating advice - you only have to look like Henry Cavill and you can be as gentlemanly as you like. Obviously we will shame the actor too for dating a girl 10 years his junior, but that's beside the point. Feminist dating advice is frankly so easy - be a hot guy or wait your turn watching healthy wholesome porn until we want to settle down in our 30s - if you have a well-paid job that is.

This first episode of the Witcher was alright. The second episode was just so dumb...... I played and enjoyed the Witcher 3 for 30ish hours, then moved to a different country and didn't pick it back up. But I do plan n playing the game to completion one day. An there is no way I'm going to continue watching this stupid show and risk the chance that when I'm playing the game I will think of the characters they way they are portrayed in this silly show.

One day, we will have our European series faithfully represented (once again) whether as series or movies.

And it will be beautiful.
The black elf (actually a young black man cast as an elf, not a race of elves) running around with Ciri just cracked me up every time I saw it. Something about the pointy ears and the fro was top comedy.
 
While the show is not BAD, it really is silly that they had to include so many unnecessary tokens. I thought that kind of stuff would be old by now.

Humans and the Elder Races (dwarves, elves) have been living in the same continent for hundreds, thousands of years, the history was bloody and there were many wars. In the Witcher world, some "coloured" races do exist, yes, and have little contact with the humans from the main setting.

Why the hell would the humans never get along with the Elder Races that they shared eons of history with, but somehow be all welcoming to other humans from other continents they HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE?!

It's just dishonest and naive. Female feminist Jewish showrunner, yep.

Jesus Christ, the ominous beginning, the level of detail in that pullback, and logo slam.
Dreams do come true after all!

There is the beginning of the demo which is on the way very soon.
Happy New Year.
 
The Witcher TV show is butt-stupid.

I like Henry Cavill and the fight scenes, but that is about it.

The diversity is on your nose and stupid - also I call Asianphobia here, because they only case a White cast, then suddenly a few subsaharan Africans either as villagers, knights, elves, sorcerers etc.

They all talk like Millennial girls - if they use uptalk, then it would be more fitting. It has nothing to do with European middle ages. They use phrases like mutants, reverse psychology and "I can't do shit".

The show is slow, the plot is dumb and convoluted, it reminds me of soap operas at times, there is plenty of agenda, there is a feminist narrative and the worst part is that it's badly done. Henry Cavill is the best part in it, but he is a side character in his show - mostly fighting and waking up with a girl. It's mainly about the empowered Millennial bitches, the female super-warriors, the mostly evil White males and evil patriarchy.

It is neither Game of Thrones early seasons nor anything else. GOT at least had initially an immersive aspect of putting yourself into the medieval world. The reason why it worked is because they adjusted language, behavior of actors and actresses, setting and casting to it. They didn't cast one Asian, one African and one European as the Royal Guard, because it would be stupid. They did not have the women behave like Millennial empowered bitches and TALK LIKE THAT!!!!!! They did not use phrases like "mutants" and "reverse psychology".



It is neither true to the books nor the games - it's a twisted concoction that the Polish author likely only gave green light and praise, because it's his best bet of cashing out. But I doubt that he is satisfied with it.

Neither the SJWs like it because there are a few too many naked women in it and Geralt still fights and slays too much and the people who read the books or played the Game - most don't like it either.

But above all - it's dumb, feminist, 2019 agenda driven, written clearly by Marxist women who cannot write at all, cannot immerse themselves even nearly into any European medieval setting. It's propaganda for the dumbed-down normies at best.

And this was after taking a look casually at 2 episodes which strained my patience - all while doing something else. So many people write in their reviews that they had to force themselves to watch that shite. The reason is because it's not immersive, even SJWs don't find it immersive. The Left liked Game of Thrones despite wishing more diversity, because it was immersive and built a conclusive logical world. The Witcher world in the books and games is immersive, but not when you meet a Millennial shit-talker woman or an elf with an Afro in a 95% white medieval elf village.

It's like making a movie about the Zulus and he having an Asian and a White son - all without explanation whatsoever. Take it bigot - it's multiculturalism, feminism and shitty soap-story-telling so consume and shut up.
 
An example of the stupidity it the Yennever arc.

Born a deformed hunchback girl - supposedly all witches are born deformed, but the show never made this clear. She talked back like a Millennial British trash trollop all the time.

They trained her, some mixed man banged her, she did soap-opera crap with him. Then they intended to send her out to serve as a deformed hunchback despite having the means to transform her. Seriously? Then she is all empowered - goes up to that wizard to change her into a normal human being. He says that the council would kill him. Why? No matter - she convinces him otherwise by one shit-talk line. And the transformation was done reminiscant of an abortion - a truly empowering feminist narrative - the burning of the womb. This is 100% an add-on by the Bolshevik feminist collective at Netflix.

Everyone would give a lot to not be a deformed hunchback, so even this anti-birth narrative is bullshit and makes no sense unless from the eyes of a feminist.

Nevermind - it's all shite.

I got an Oculus Quest for Christmas. This thing is amazing. It came with the Vader Immortal series which aren't long games but so completely immersive that, when I took off the headset, I was surprised I was still in my living room. At one point you take a platform through a massive cave and it's mind-blowingly convincing. There were times I was legit scared - like when Vader first walks up to you in the game, or when you're looking down at a 100 foot drop into the lava of Mustafar, etc. I'd probably shite myself if I played one of the horror games.

Pros:
It tracks head movement almost perfectly and the headset is comfortable to wear.
Unlike other systems, I didn't get eyestrain.
It's self-contained. No PC or external tracking sensors needed.
Very easy to set up. I was playing in minutes.
Controllers (same as the Rift) are easy to use and track well, there's some slight jitter.
Display looked great.
Sets up a safe play area easily and switches to an external camera when you go outside it.

Cons:
Not as many games as other systems yet.
It's rechargeable and the battery can't be swapped out so you're limited to a few hours. Fine for gaming (I don't pull marathon sessions).
Slightly lower refresh rate compared to PC-based systems.
 

The HEMA circles on youtube are enraged by some journalist criticizing the female empowerment in the witcher series. Here's a video from a guy I generally respect and who knows what he's talking about more often than not, yet it's obvious that he has a horse in this race and isn't fully objective (probably because his wife is in the sport as well). Obviously the whole debacle devolves into traditional men vs. women dick-measuring contest, because some people just can't accept that women aren't built for fighting, and people putting "warrior women" in media definitely try to push and reinforce their opinions - and suddenly everyone who disagrees is insulted.

Here's the question I'd like to pose these morons. Why does Henry Cavill, Chris Pratt/Hemsworth/Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Christian Bale, the cast of 300, and every other actor in an action movie go through months of intensive physical training?

Chris Pratt was an athletic guy who got chubby for the laughs on Parks and Rec. Hemsworth and Evans were both lean athletic guys prior to their iconic roles. Why did all these guys transform their physiques into near-impossible states? Because tubby Chris Pratt and skinny Chris Hemsworth would make what their superhero characters do look absurd. Skinny Thor swinging that hammer would overwhelm the internet with snarky, bitchy commentary. Why must we require our actors to reach peak physical condition because the public won't accept a chubby space cowboy (Pratt) but threatens to "cancel culture" anyone who laughs at the 110 lb woman beating up 6 special forces members? It's the equivalent of casting 15-year-old boys as badasses.

Valid point, but you'd likely get called an incel (or other diatribe) in response. I really lost a lot of respect for this guy, but I guess I asked for it by trusting in an e-celeb.



I guess we all should be able to beat up a roided dyke before trying to point out dymorphism between sexes in human species or double standards in modern society.

On top of the fact HEMA is a sport and therefore by definition engaged in the industry of feminising men and masculinising women, it's also a deeply weird bunch of people one step removed from the fat RenFair cosplayers inhabiting the Society for Creative Anachronism (and indeed largely emerged from it.)

HEMA did not exist until a few years ago. Western civilisation threw out the idea of martial arts bar maybe boxing and wrestling because it had developed enough advanced technology (i.e. firearms) that you no longer needed to learn how to swing 2 pound broadswords at other human beings, a 60 pound woman could pull out out a 45 from her purse and gun down a thug with ease. Guns are the West's great martial art, at which they succeeded so hugely that every other culture on Earth either adopted it (even the katana-wielding samurai did when it arrived in Japan, and even then, firearms destroyed the samurai as Japan modernised) or got wiped out by it (Zulus, Incas, Indians, Aboriginals, etc, etc).

Eastern cultures kept the training for various cultural reasons deeply ingrained with family and tradition, it's only because the West has completely lost its institutions of family and religion that goatee-bearded morons are running around trying to recreate some sort of ancestral parentage for themselves.

Train a woman up to a standard required to compete in MMA. She can still be taken out by a 90 pound male weakling with a gun. She can still in some situations be taken out by a 90 pound male weakling - because, as with a male competitor, the focus of training on MMA combat assumes a ring and a referee and rules and an opponent who doesn't literally want to kill you. She can certainly be taken out by a male trained up to the standard required to compete in MMA too, because the training has been equalised and all that's left is biology.

This is what Nassim Taleb identifies as Ludic Fallacy - the idea that a stylised game environment reflects what happens in the real world.

As for female soldiers? An army that takes on the child, the woman, and the felon is an army that's run out of willing or able men to fight its battles; it is not the preferred or equal course, it's the sign of a declining empire or a desperate one.
