AVDP EP44 | Red Russians, Slim Shaming, Kickstarter, Uber, Gun Control



Topics Covered in this Installment of AVDP

  • What if Russians Were Red?

    Our various discussions about racism brings me to an interesting thought. What if my ethnicity as a Ukrainian/Russian was made obvious by my skin color? What if I had red skin so everyone that had a preconceived notation about Russians would know I am one?

  • Slim Shaming

    Is slim shaming the same as fat shaming? I argue that people who attempt to shame skinny people are doing it from a place of jealousy rather than a place of ridicule. Am I wrong?

  • Kickstarter Becoming Bad for Indies?

    We have general discussion about Kickstarter and how large companies are using it as a testing ground for concepts. Is those something that will end up hurting indie developers?

    The Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night from the creator of Castlevania raised nearly 6 million dollars with a very impressive campaign. I suspect a full on marketing team was behind it. Certainly single developers and indie companies couldn’t compete with this kind of marketing muscle.

    Also for fun, enjoy Uwe Bolle’s rant:

  • Uber in France

    Uber sparks “protests” in France, even though we all know that these are legitimate riots. Looks like France decided to make the absolutely wrong choice to side with the taxi companies and instruct police to crack down on UBER DRIVERS? What a fucking joke.
