everyone to race to the bottom instead of having the ability (and the financial wherewithal) to be individuals

- yeah, I don't want any single person to benefit from any oppression of any other single person out there. Not one should be oppressed to provide anything to any one. To actually *earn* to be an individual is quite different from thinking you are an 'individual' because somebody was oppressed to provide you with this so called 'individuality'.

Whatever you said doesn't matter to me one single bit, I look at what you write here and I know exactly what sort of a monstrous prick I am dealing with.

It's wrong for (white) men to subjugate women, demean them, or harass them in the office.

Yes, period.

Except if you are into BDSM involving fantasies of sexual slavery of women. Or you're a muslim. Or non-white.

What you do on your own time with willing participants is your deal. Don't assume all, most or many people you interact with are willing participants. Acting out your sex fantasies on strangers usually gets you in trouble, not sure why this would be any different except less trouble.

Comment Many Xbox One games run at reduced resolution (Score 0) 81

if there is a difference it's that insignificant during game play.

The typical pattern is that the Xbox One version of a game would run at 1280x720 before upscaling for output, while the PlayStation 4 version of the same game could run at 1600x900 with the same frame rate due to faster memory. (Meanwhile, PC masters got to enjoy their 1920x1080, 2560x1440, or whatever else the aftermarket GPU was capable of.)

having a DVD-R that couldn't play a movie DVD

The drive could, at least with the early drive chips. Nintendo just didn't want to have to pay DVD FLLC for every Wii console it shipped. Microsoft did the same thing with the original Xbox (2001), putting licensed DVD player software on a separate memory card in the remote receiver. It's unclear whether Nintendo could have likewise offered something like "PowerDVD now available in Wii Shop Channel for 2000 Nintendo Points".

Or is the answer "don't, let the customer have 2 TVs"?


Case in point: Look at how many games nowadays support only online multiplayer, not same-screen multiplayer. Publishers rationalize the decision not to spend time=money on same-screen multiplayer by claiming limited GPU and RAM resources, as well as the fact that the average age of a gamer has trended upward since the NES and Super NES era.
