10,000 Hours in MS-Paint No.4 – Virtue: The Signalling

There’s noth­ing quite says “Fantasy Card Game” like an ide­o­log­i­cal purge of peo­ple who’s high­est crime is post­ing spicy memes on the in­ter­net. Nothing quite says “start­ing a dis­cus­sion about Magic: The Gathering” ei­ther like talk­ing about the need for dis­course then dis­abling the abil­i­ty of peo­ple to com­ment.

Some peo­ple have dubbed the re­cent ex­plo­sion of dra­ma in MTG “ThotGate,” but it feels more like the same old talk­ing heads with their talk­ing points. 

Same as it ever was…

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
John Sweeney is a ter­ri­bly British man with a back­ground in en­gi­neer­ing. He writes long-form ed­i­to­r­i­al con­tent with analy­sis of gam­ing, games me­dia and in­ter­net cul­ture. He also does the oc­ca­sion­al video game ret­ro­spec­tive with a week­ly col­umn about Magic the Gathering thrown in for good mea­sure. He also does most of our in­ter­views for some rea­son, we have no idea why. A staunch sup­port­er of free speech and con­sumer rights; skep­ti­cal of agen­da dri­ven me­dia and sus­pi­cious of un­ac­cou­table au­thor­i­ty but al­ways hope­ful for change.
