The Witcher 1 was honestly pretty mid, I agree with your criticisms. It coasted on an open world, a 3-style fighting system, and the appeal of being a Fantasy Detective(tm).

The Witcher 3 was genuinely great though, definite recommend.

Gambargin does a lot of Turkish inspired stuff, both serious historical stuff and less serious stuff like this.

Oh thank the gods, I was worried we might have lost our #1 spot in monolingualism.

"Well, I speak the most Italian, so I'll be your escort. Donowitz speaks the second most, so he'll be your Italian cameraman. Omar speaks third most, so he'll be Donny's assistant."

"I don't speak Italian."

"Like I said, third best."

The point is more "You are not obligated to justify your own happiness for the bad faith (or even good faith) demands of shitheads" more than "We cannot have any discourse on the subject"

Are the neoliberals in the room with you right now?

Literally none of those are defending the Palestinian genocide, but go off, I guess.

"An uncommitted movement will not be called for the general"

Okay, but what if I direct you to people calling for exactly that.

please do so and i’ll tell them to kick rocks.

Unironically I'm happy to hear this.

(you can’t even vote uncommitted in the general afaik it’s not even an option)

Some states allow write-ins for the General.

We generally regard increasing chaos on the international scene as undesirable in a post-Cold War world.

So yes, America has been the main cause of geopolitical conflict in the modern era.

Lord.

My point was not that Haiti’s situation is the exclusive fault of the United States, but rather that the US does at least have some responsibility for how it has turned out.

Some responsibility is undeniable, but I think saying Haiti's poverty is 'largely though not entirely a result of the actions of the US' is vastly overstating the role of the US in this particular scenario. I don't think "The US refuses to intervene to buoy the junk debts acquired by US banks in the 1910s-40s" fundamentally changes the trajectory of Haiti's history.

That would be much more compelling, except for the fact that Haiti was poor and unstable even before France imposed the debt, and that subsequent regimes, including US-friendly and US-hostile, did nothing to improve the situation. Haiti's issues are far more fundamental than "The US reduced and redirected investment in the Haitian economy while extracting debts owed to US investors back in the 1910s-1940s".

Obviously, this is ignoring the moral issue of the occupation of Haiti (which is, of course, an atrocity), as the discussion is currently centered around responsibility for modern Haitian poverty and instability.

The debt was imposed some 30 years after the Haitian Revolution, if memory serves. Taking on the (punitive and ridiculous) debt was the condition for France recognizing Haiti's independence, though it had been de facto independent for a generation.

I'd like some niche communities to be more active, and realistically speaking that's only going to happen with a bigger userbase.

I agree as a whole, but when it comes to killing Nazis, we can have a little Soviet Motherland, as a treat
