can't believe developers are pandering to the SJWs yet again. i mean look at this, half the characters are black! and the woman is the strongest character in the game! my immersion is totally ruined, god.

@eightbitsamurai this is the sort of quality insightful shitpost I'm here for

@eightbitsamurai it even demonstrates white privilege by having the white side go first.

@drifting_in_circles @eightbitsamurai Is that white privilege or is it just an acknowledgement of colonialism? If white never moves, nobody dies.

@eightbitsamurai oof

I forwarded this to a friend and he responded

"at least white moves first"

@eightbitsamurai this is the best post of today, i'm done with mastodon now, logging off bc nothing will exceed this

@eightbitsamurai white has an advantage though, that's pretty accurate

@eightbitsamurai This actually was a Big Fucking Deal when the chess variant we play today became popular - it was pejoratively called 'madwoman's chess' and is one of the earliest examples of SJWs ruining games for everyone forever.

@inkblot_sandwiches @eightbitsamurai I now desire there to be a heavy metal band called ‘Mad Women’s Chess’.

@inkblot_sandwiches @eightbitsamurai "The new rules faced a backlash in some quarters, ranging from anxiety over a powerful female warrior figure to frank abuse against women in general"

@inkblot_sandwiches > During the 15th century the queen's move took its modern form as a combination of the move of the rook and the current move of the bishop. [ . . . ] The new rules faced a backlash in some quarters, ranging from anxiety over a powerful female warrior figure to frank abuse against women in general.

Wow. The original instance of Concern Over Ethics In Game Journalism.

@eightbitsamurai This looks like a post for r/gamingcirclejerk, if you find parts of Reddit tolerable, or if you want to hear more about how SJWs have ruined every game ever in history.

@eightbitsamurai OMG this is the first toot I've seen with >99 boosts

@eightbitsamurai @grainloom (neckbeard mode) that's why i play the japanese version, which has different pieces and features that were removed from the international version

(serious mode) not really, i don't play any of these games, mostly because i'm terrible at them.

@eightbitsamurai And the top guy seems like he is most important, but he is a narrow-range snowflake...
