    Just my two cents, I didn't like the gay option in ME because it felt more like pandering without any actual allegorical exploration of the issue, like they did for interacial marriage with specism.

    Not saying ME is particularly deep, but I question if Bioware's heart is in the whole gay thing if they tackle minors ty issues and more or less marginalize gay issues.

    like everyone points to ME as this bastion of inclusiveness in the gaming world, but compare it to literally any other peice of media that tackles gay issues and you realize that it handles things pretty poorly. If ME is what qualifies as progressive, then that's exactly why we need gaymercon.

    Valkyria Chronicles is the #1 gay game. All the insignificant troop characters are individual, so there are gays. Jann Walker for example has the following potentials:

    Fancies Men - Having men nearby makes them happy, leading to enhanced accuracy when firing.
    Largo Lover - Just knowing that Largo is nearby gives confidence and boost in attack power.

    Here are some quotes from Jann, our favourite JRPG gay:

    Selection
    "You got it, hon!"
    "For you? Suurre."

    Killing a Foe
    "Sorry, honey."

    Enemy Sighted
    "I see a bad guy!"
    "Oooo! Here's one!"

    Personal Potentials
    "Ahhchh...oh boo." (Pollen Allergy)
    "I could get lost in those muscles {singing}!" (Fancies Men)
    "Largo...you're the only man for me." (Largo Lover)


    His Engish voice actor also plays Marcus Fenix in Gears of War. That guy's probably gay too.

    Well, you could argue that in the context of the scene there wasn't really much scope for courting, but first off you can't possibly claim the vast majority of complaints over that scene were because the gay romance wasn't fleshed out enough - the creator himself had to post on the forums defending the scene from all the homophobia. Secondly if the scene really was as shitty as you think it was, perhaps you should let BioWare know? Maybe through some sort of convention where they could discuss LGBT issues specifically? Like... a gaymercon?
    in fairness, the sheer arrogance from bioware during the entire ME3 episode means that a lot of the vitriol was somewhat justified

    Agreed on that point, but on a slightly different yet related topic, (figured i'd crowbar this into the conversation at some point before I forget entirely) the abuse towards Hepler wasn't. She didn't even write half the shit people complain about, they just single her out because some neckbearded fucktard dredged up an old interview she did where she admitted to not liking to play games that much (shock and horror, who'd expect a writer to like writing?) and made a pic of it with all kinds of shit written all over it.

    Do any of you guys know anything about the value of TF2 items?

    I know we have a TF2 section but it's scary and I don't know anyone there and I feel like posting there will result in everyone yelling at me.

    Yeah I played for it like 100 hours, decided to uninstall.. gave away all my shit first... found out a few months later I'd been sitting on like $230ish worth of shit.

    Vintage Bills Hat apparently goes for like 50 - 80 bucks or something, cant remember.

    I sold my vintage bills for 2.5 buds, which is like $70 I think.

    Also I highly doubt you played for 100 hours and just happened to obtain an item that you can only obtain by glitching...

    Similar situation here, I bought tons of promos when the update first came out for only like 3 hats' worth, and stopped paying attention for a bit. My buds were worth quite a bit more when I came back.

    "A variant of the Bill's Hat, called the Vintage Bill's Hat, could be acquired by deleting your Bill's Hat and then asking for a restore at Valve Support. After this method became known, Valve immediately patched the glitch, resulting in a rather small number of Vintage Bill's Hats.

    The Vintage Bill's Hat is one of the rarest in the game, with a total of 643 hats. "

    Vintage Bill's Hat's were from a glitch, which is why they were rare and worth more.

    There are thousands of Bill's but 643 Vintage versions. (ty for the number info gravity)

    I wanted a heavy hat right after I got the Bill's, and since I thought the Bill's hat didn't look nice I traded it for just that one hat.

    Little did I learn afterwords that it was worth a LOT. Fuck all.

    Edited:

    I also accidentally scammed some buds off of a guy. I later traded them again for something measly, and only after I did so did I learn how much they were worth.
