    So you are an anarchist who plays Pokemon too??

    :D You have no idea how happy you just made me!! I was already accepting the fact that I was gonna be the only anarchist in the entire world who plays it. Maybe if I get a DS one day we could get to battle or trade if it's okay with you? =).

    Also about what I said of the anarchists in Chile, is mostly because they all seem infatuated with the Shitgeist Movement and the Venus Project... because they seem to lack basic critical thinking skills which to me is an essential anarchist quality, them not having it makes me really sad and depressed about the future of Anarchism in my country :(.

    Of course I fully support the 14 anarchist kidnappees (since I also have no idea if they even know about TZM) by the motherfucking State and if I could I would release them from the prison with my own hands.

    About working for big companies well... I don't have that in mind, my issue was with buying games from them but to me it is clear where I want to work (independent studios).

    And to be honest I agree to some extent with what you said about not all of us being 100% Anarchists, because to me is not just politics but a way of life, but since the State and Capitalism control/own pretty much everything then there isn't much we can do right?

    I for one am planning in the future to generate my own watts to consume in my house, and will do whatever it takes to build an Earthship instead of a typical house, if there's something I can't tolerate anymore is all the trash wasted away that could be used to build and to generate energy.

    So people, tell me one thing, what would you think if I were to design games that promoted Anarchism (lifestyle, ideals, communities, etc.)? Obviously these games would be free.

    Thanks a lot for your input Hailey, you really made my day! =D.

    This is an exaggeration on your part, there are very many really enlightened anarquistas in Chile that don't have anything to do with ridiculous conspiracy theory, I think it is a bit insulting of you to suggest that there is no critical thinkers other than yourself.

    Ok I'm sorry, I apologize then, didn't mean to insult people... I was just pissed off, I didn't want to come off as arrogant or pretentious, it's just that seeing anything related to that conspiracy-shit on the web enrages me almost instantly... But it was wrong of me to label all chilean anarchists just for what some people think on some internet forum.

    I'd love to meet some of those anarchists you speak of one day...

    Once again I apologize, if you deem it neccessary I can just edit those posts.

    No need, I understand believe me, that shit bothers the hell out of me too. It's more than enough that you realize that you wrote that in frustration and don't seriously feel that way......Salud!

    When I have free time I play video games but I think there are more important things than a silly video game
    As for asking other people for acceptance for video games, Its your life. Not theirs. Do what you will, if they don't like it they can blow it out of their asses.

    Thank you very much for the article Butcher, I had no idea such practices were done by these greedy fucking big videogame companies, so now I just have one more reason to work at independent studios, and hopefully once I do, I won't end up in a project for a big publisher which sucks the life away from me (and my coworkers). If such a thing happens I'll make the lives of those corporate assholes a living hell.
