I'm glad he didn't take his gloves off, she might have discovered his secret identity.

A review of Kevin Smith's show about comic book shops

Quote
This dude... There's a part during the flea market competition where he just starts smashing these collectible plates that one of the other guys is selling as part of some kind of aggressive sales tactic, and also so that the other dude can't sell them and beat him at the contest. A nearby senior citizen sees this and walks over to yell at him for being a dick, and he immediately backs down and pays for the things he broke. Then the old man leaves, and just as quickly as he backed down, Bryan gets tough again and demands his money back until the other guy shuffles like a kicked puppy and hands it over.

Hey, I caught that show!

Except for the part about three minutes in when they start talking about which super-heroines they want to have sex with, which is a nice way to confirm every negative image of comic book store employees right at the start.

This where I came in and where I changed the channel.

I watched the whole first episode hoping that it'd maybe go into a little more comic history but nope, bullying each other and filming people that came into the store to try and offload some of their personal stuff and watching them haggle the price. It was all kinds of terrible.

A few pages ago, I posted a picture of EDI's new character model in the Mass Effect 3 game. It got taken down (that's what I get for trusting someone else's photobucket link) but here it is again (if a mod could use that link to replace the broken one, I would appreciate it).

I thought it couldn't get any worse, but apparently this is the voice of the new Prothean squad member:

I'm not sure I understand what's wrong with a Jamaican accent, but yeah, ME3 is looking pretty disappointing.

I'm not sure what to think about the Jamaican accent.  If they just hired a guy with a Jamaican accent to portray the alien then that could be OK, one of the alien main characters has a Russian accent after all.  I don't like the idea of using accents to highlight aliens being weird and exotic, but I don't know if it's honest to god racist, they're not like Watto the Space Jew from Star Wars.  That EDI thing is a lot more cut and dried, what the fuck is wrong with you Bioware.

A good litmus test for racism in sci-fi/fantasy is to count the number of ethnic humans there are. If the majority of black/asian/etc voices are used for species other than human, it's racist as fuck.

By the way, most fantasy/sci-fi is racist as fuck.

I never did get that. Is there supposed to be the implication that all non-white people evolved into radically different things, while white people stayed the same? Or is it saying that in the future there's some super-racist Space Hitler in charge? Unless there's some rational, non-racist reason that black people stop existing between now and then, of course.

I noticed something similar in Morrowind. The anthropomorphic beast races tend to have non-European accents. There's cat-men who sound like Arabs or Persians or something and are known for being untrustworthy, drug-addled thieves.

Why is it racist to co-opt a human accent for aliens? That's not saying it isn't, but I can't put it in words to save my liberal ass.

I'm in "I don't really think this is bad especially compared to some of the other details that have surfaced" camp. 

A good litmus test for racism in sci-fi/fantasy is to count the number of ethnic humans there are. If the majority of black/asian/etc voices are used for species other than human, it's racist as fuck.

Mass Effect has a pretty decent ethnic mix of humans in its main/supporting cast.  Off the top of my head there's Jacob Taylor, Captain Anderson, Counselor Udina, and Kasumi Goto, who are all major characters.

Plus, of the aliens, only Tali has a non-Western accent, and it's even demonstrated that not all Quarians have that accent, just her.  It's likely true of the Protheans as well.

I checked youtube and you're right, the rest of the Quarians don't sound Russian. I wonder why I remembered it that way. I guess I'm the racist.
