Still thinking about the Legion thing from this morning, I think my larger issue here is that the Legion makes little to no sense in so far as their issue with women goes. Incoherent rambling below the cut.

One of the things that I really can’t stand about FO:NV is how much they try to set up this equivalence between NCR and the Legion that just doesn’t exist.
On superficial levels, sure, probably. They are both empire nations who continuously run over smaller nations and “tribals” (how I feel about the tribals is a whole other post, holy god). They both have strong a military, and are lead by more or less corrupt politicians. But that’s pretty much where it ends.
Because the equivalency they keep reaching for, it seems to me doesn’t really touch on those facts so much as it wants to say “So you see how the Legion is a slave nation that physically and psychologically tortures small (male) children into fighting for it, and literally reduces all women to livestock status? Yeah, the NCR is totally that bad, too, because they turn a blind eye to drug use.”
What in the fuck are these writers on. It’s like they took the false equivalence BS of The Pitt and then strung it into an entire game. Of COURSE I’m going to side with NCR, if I have to side with either, because seriously, the Legion might as well be named the 9th circle of hell. Which is just weird, tbh, because even the Romans they’re supposedly based off of weren’t that bad. (Don’t get me wrong, they were bad, just not yeesh.)
It’s just really, really awkward to me that games such as this one, which tout themselves for their moral greyness, are the ones that so often present choices which are 100% black and white to anyone with the barest hint of a conscience. And yeah, I am going there. The base-game Legion is disgusting as all get out and the fact that they have rabid, defensive fans is just mind-boggling to me. If you removed those two factors I mentioned above, I could see it, but the fact remains that those are there and just…ugh. UGH.
Of all a deer’s senses, their eyesight is the worst.
I don’t know what I was expecting but this was so much better than that
This is a Cowboy Bebop-esque opening for Mass Effect. Excuse me while I go scream at how awesome this is.
My fav thing about tumblr is the complete lack of country music it makes me feel like this is where I should be
