Skaven quoting Trump

stanco4everstanco4ever Posts: 1Registered Users
Anyone else chuckle when entering diplomacy with Skaven and hearing "we have the best words"?

I'm assuming it was deliberate, but made me smile either way,

    I don't see why you have to bring Trump into a fantasy video game like this based on something so harmless.

    The Skaven just talk like that. There's no need to bring politics into this, or to assume there was some hidden message involved by Skaven talking like Skaven.

    We all get enough of politics in the real world, I'm sure.

    you don't have to be "leftist" to bash Trump though... he's more than capable of delivering ammunition to fire against him from all political directions. just saying...

    Yes! to Boris Todbringer as playable, subfaction leading Legendary Lord with Starting Position Middenheim instead for the Empire! NO to the lazy way of moving Gelt and Volkmar who both belong to Reikland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    It would be fairly easy to not know that, because you have to have a very unhealthy obsession with the man to keep track of every last thing he says that could bring embarrassment. Like him or hate him, the man is unquestionably poor at keeping his mouth shut at times.

    Which makes me think that this is not a reference to Trump at all, given - again - that this is just how the Skaven speak. Trying to attach special meaning to phrases in video games like this is just really weird.

    Such is the age we live in, however.

    You can't make any piece of media without having to either go over every line in your game with a fine-tooth comb to make sure that nobody famous ever said the line, or you just ignore that and write what sounds good to write anyway - knowing all the while that people will assign meaning to what your fictional video game characters have said. Meaning that often is not based on reality or on what was actual developer intent, but rather in order to make people feel better about themselves and their own political convictions.

    I, for one, would like to be able to enjoy reading about a video game and playing a video game without having people try to use said video games as a sort of mental canvas for their own political prejudices. Doesn't seem like much to ask, honestly.

    You don't want Trump-bashing and yet are bashing leftists in the same sentence. Kinda says something, don't it?

    some of us are adults that read the news, and he tends to feature fairly heavily

    "i have the best words" is an incredible quote, and pretty easy to remember too

    I love that... "Leftist"

    Anyone that insults Trump makes you fanatics Heil Hitler and bark in his defense... Left and Right don't mean **** in that country... just like black and white, it's nothing but smoke to get the masses to fight each other while obeying the leader. The amount of time you people got tricked... it's insanity how you can still fall for this.

    So implying that "leftists" need to shut up and get out and that their views aren't welcome here even when the game itself is actually parodying Trump isn't hostility?

    God, I'm getting flashbacks to gamergate.

    Funny thing that you get accused for being a leftist if you joke about Trump or dislikes him tho. :) You don't have to be a leftist to know that the man is a joke.

    This thread is stupid. Everyone knows that every US President has always really been a Lizardman (not skaven!) in disguise.

    I laught at it when the Skaven said it in the game, without even connection the dots.

    This.

    I don't care if you lean left or right, can we please keep the politics out of this forum? It's one of the few places someone can actually get away from it.
