On History: Oh no, "revisionist history!"

Posted 12-04-2010 at 04:14 by Critias

Reading over a recent Civil War thread (or rather, a recent Civil War thread masquerading as an Abe Lincoln thread), I couldn't help but notice how quick both sides were to throw out the "revisionist history" card after a quote. A few GTers do so as eagerly and gleefully as if they were plucking off a glove and slapping someone in the face with it, spitting out the words like they were the most grievous and dismissive insult they could imagine.

Folks, history is supposed...

On Geekery, Part Two: Wargaming...sport of geek-kings?

Posted 12-02-2010 at 11:45 by Critias

On the bright side, wargaming doesn't have all the scandal and controversy and emotional baggage that RPGs do. There's something that certain groups just love about the escapism element of RPGs, about the idea that you're "becoming" someone else, and that they love to point the finger at. They'll conveniently ignore that every good movie or fantastic novel out there is popular precisely because of that same element of escapism, of a writer or actor putting you into another character's...

It's not uncommon for folks (especially new Glock owners) to not quickly understand how to use the supplied magazine loading tool, so, here ya go!
