    You can doubt however you want but for now as far as we know, he only said once. Plus, there's lots of slurs people say in a "heated gaming moment" and the n-word is just one of many especially with the whole n-word meme around that time.

    Fair enough. While I still don't agree with your viewpoint, i can understand now how you would come to this conclusion. I guess we have to agree to disagree.

    Ok how about you make a list of his close friends first? Is Brad alt-right? Mr. Beast? Ken? As I said, the alt-righters associated with him are insignificant considering the amount of other people...

    Ok how about you make a list of his close friends first? Is Brad alt-right? Mr. Beast? Ken? As I said, the alt-righters associated with him are insignificant considering the amount of other people in his clique.

    Plus you can be friends with people of different views and not everyone is willing to risk a fight with someone just because of differing viewpoints.

    People got offended so he apologized. He didn't just brush it off.

    On a side note, there are instances of meaningful interactions in voice chat and I think it varies upon which game you play and the servers you play on.

    So saying the n-word ONCE automatically makes you a racist? If by that logic, calling someone a girl a bitch once makes you a misogynist? Calling someone retarded is ableist? I'm not saying that...

    So saying the n-word ONCE automatically makes you a racist? If by that logic, calling someone a girl a bitch once makes you a misogynist? Calling someone retarded is ableist?

    I'm not saying that saying shouldn't be wrong but calling him a racist just for saying the n-word ONCE is too far a stretch.

    It's in bad taste and he should apologise for it? Yes and he did.

    But automatically labelling him a racist? No, it's too quick to call him a racist just for saying it one time.

    Yeah, I agree with your statement but I want to add that not every person he hangs out with is an alt right figure so i believe accusing him of being alt right just because out of the many people he hangs with, an insignificant amount is alt right, shouldn't be valid.

    Also, about him saying the n-word, there are more extreme shit people say while gaming and people who accuses him of racism may just not be familiar with gaming toxicity and how people will spit anything that's offensive during a "heated gaming moment"

    The twitter update intervals corresponds to the ring poem in LoTR. 7 as in the 7 rings gifted to the dwarves, 3 rings kept by the elves, 9 rings given to men and the one ring forged by sauron.

    The rings were forged during the second age hence hinting that the show would take place in the second age.

    I think the problem with making difficult games is that a significant portion of people play casually and these ultra hard games aren't friendly to casual players. The game looks promising though...

    The game looks promising though amd roguelikes are usually really hard.

    Book of Ryan was such an amazing album. Especially 'Power'. That track really resonated with me.

    It's criminal how this guy isn't more well known. I'm amazed by how raw the emotions felt in this song.

    Old school anime OVAs were really unique seeing it had no restraints. Wish there could be more stuff like dokuro.

    Mine was watching the final episode of Gurren Lagann when I was 10. Back then kid me was really hyped at the sheer scope of the final battle. I watched it in dub but the impact of it solidified my fanaticism in anime.
