I’d love to imagine that I didn’t need to do this, but it is the internet, so better safe than sorry:
DISCLAIMER: HITLER WAS THE WORST
Read More ▼
I’m excited for Splatoon 2 this weekend. I never got into the first one. I played, I think, one game at a store and my thought process went something like this: Oh wow, this is pretty fun, I could totally see myself falling in love with this gameplay and art style but, eh, that would mean I would practically need to chisel my Wii U out of the chrysalis of dust it has become entombed in, meh, nevermind.
It looked like a lot of fun though, so this time I’m getting on board. It seems, according to this past weekend’s Splatfest, that I am not alone in maybe thinking the game’s idols this time around are not necessarily created equal. I mean, there’s no way ice cream beats cake by that much, so it has to be the allure of Marina, am I right?

hitler was the worst?
I’m not so sure about that anymore, we’ve had many contenders for that title over the years, and they keep popping up
I’d rather say Hitler was very, very bad
Really all depends how much he ordered himself, and how much was done through others in the end (not like there aren´t some who thinks Dick Cheney wasn´t the real head in that couple :D). Ofc doesn´t matter much since he was the head of state and as such deserves all the blame.
You’re suggesting that anybody else over the years has actually come close to literally rounding up millions of people by their race and shoving them into gas chambers to be executed by sarin gas…
People who were worse than Hitler
And if we say countries worse than Germany
Hitler was just wanting what France and Britain and Russia already had, to bad he was to little to late.
Is there you a reason you didn’t mention Pol Pot, but you mentioned Pakistan and Arabia?
What a horrible man, I forgot about him. Now I wish that I could edit comments.
You mentioned Belgium…but you didn’t specify that it was King Leopold and his assortment of cronies.
No problem with that, just pointing it out.
Well done, you put someone who’s killed one person in the span of 20 years on the battlefield where 80% of his major military battles were instigated by the other side (Muhammad) as worse than someone who exterminated upwards of 6 million people.
But of course, “Arabia” is totally worse.
And of course, the US, with a body count of 1.5 million Iraqis in the span of two generations doesn’t even make the list.
Stalin and Mao have higher numbers if you include the policies they put into place that caused millions to die.
Sorry, Nick, but Hitler pursued aggressive war, which neither of those other two guys did (unless you count the Russo-Finnish War). Conservative estimates put the total number of people killed in WW II at over 60 million, and neither of them came close.
so if it’s atrocities commited on their own people, it doesn’t count?
Sorry sunman but it was Britain and France that declared war on Hitler, not the otherway around.
Hitler still started the hostilities by invading Poland.
Seriously? Britain and France declared war because Hitler was invading other nations who showed no aggression towards him. Where the hell did you go to school that you did not learn this?
Seems hypocritical of them. I mean, Britain had their greasy mitts on every continent, and France wasn’t far behind, plus what about Russia, the history books never mention the fact that Russia invaded Poland as well.
Hitler didn’t use sarin gas.
Yeah, he used Zyklon B. Get your gases right!
Don’t forget Stalin did the same thing himself.
In a way he was much worse.
Stalins death toll only comes close to what hitler did in the holocaust alone if you count indirect deaths from events that came as a result of his non-murder decisions. I wonder if hitler caused any events that killed a-lot (over 100m) people?
When you take ISIS into account….
I’d be shocked about Marina’s stance, but she IS an Octoling.
WHY YOU DO THIS TO RANDOM KIDS CHILDHOOD LIKE THAT ONE IN THE CORNER CRYING.
CRYING TEARS OF…What IS he doing?
…Oh he’s playing Bloodborne…
…now I’m disturbed AND confused…
The problem with ‘debates’ (as opposed to ‘discussions’) in general.
Lets be honest. Pearls design is the “I’m an annoying, bratty, punk kid who thinks highly of myself.”
And no one likes that kind of character here in the west.
Exactly. She’s the kind of character that people love to see fail at everything they do.
and yet because this is the internet, you’re still going to get delusional assholes who honestly believe Hitler was the good guy, and all this hate on him is a frame-up job by the global zionist conspiracy or something equally asinine.
I wish I was joking.
That’s basically the view of most Muslims in the Middle East.
Not really, that’s what people THINK most Muslims in the middle east think, specifically, people who’ve never even met ANYONE from the middle east, let alone Muslims from there.
Just because someone thinks Israel is an apartheid state doesn’t mean they automatically worship the ground Hitler walked on, or even hate Jews, they just don’t like people who make White South Africans circa 1950s look like tolerant people.
The Arabic translation of Mein Kampf is a bestseller, you know?
Reminds me of something I read the other day. Someone claimed that they felt WW2 was greatly exaggerated so we would fear “the white man”, and they are still hunting Nazi’s today so they don’t talk and tell us what really happened. I think they somehow forgot about the TONS of evidence that we have of WW2 and what it was like, but, um, sure.
I feel like it would be only SLIGHTLY inappropriate to make a Chef Brian joke…
The pancake turtle tangos with the screwdriver.
Ah, Cook Bryan, my good friend how are you!
Bellicose battery, fishstick,
Hey Tim, in the link you shared, Ice Cream beat Cake, 76% to 24% respectively. Might want to change your wording in the post.
The wording was correct. Tim was saying that Ice Cream’s victory could not have been due to its own merits, but rather because it was the team represented by Marina.
I just have to state that Ice Cream is way better than cake in just about every instance, unless you consider brownies a type of cake (which they technically kind of are). Then and only then does cake win out.
But what about when you combine ice cream and cake…
Hitler is now the “measuring stick” for all our new physcopath leaders & quite a few of our old ones.
Still, I think some of his Asian counterparts may have exceeded him in overall death toll numbers. Mao Zedong certainly racked up some numbers. If Mao achieved even half of what they think the max # was, Hitler is second place.
“The estimates of the numbers of landlords that he had killed off varies from about 5 million to 20 million.”
Source: The Chinese Case: Was It Genocide or Poor Policy?
Numbers keep varying, but wow.
Actually, Tim, there is good explanation for the numbers. Yes, Marina (Ida) is cute, but the same could be said about Pearl (Hime). Ultimately, deciding factor was season. If not for summer, I believe ice cream would be less popular choice. Also, I could not help but note that team win rate of Cake team was much better, even if numbers turned out much better for Ice Cream team.
The solo win rate of Ice Cream was better, the team win rate of Cake was better. Indicating that better pre-formed teams joined cake, while better solo players joined Ice Cream.
Hitler’s genocide killed as many as he did because of the military strength of Nazi Germany at the time.
There have been a few genocides since Hitler, even more violent and brutal. But of course many people don’t even know they happened, and Hitler’s legacy continues strong.
I guess slaughtering milliions isn’t a big deal, unless you’re slaughtering white people of course
Also Pearl won in Japan cause there it was Rock vs Pop
and i’ll be honest, Rock is better than Pop and Icecream is better than cake so im happy with those results
….. Like Marina still more ( i mean did you guys see how Pearl glares at you when you look at them in the hub?)
I like the best of both worlds in Rock vs Pop…
Sorry, so many bad puns…
Not her fault that some players are pervs. Even NPC AIs caught onto that.
Unfortunate side effect of looking at the entire fourth wall of something at once.
I do that sometimes.
I’m confused that you decided not to get Splatoon because it would’ve meant to dust it off. I mean, isn’t it good if you get games for the video game systems you own so that you actually get some use out of them instead of collecting dust?
I am pleased that here there is ACTUAL DISCUSSION that is PRODUCTIVE as opposed to, you know, needless blithering tomfoolery.
Funny how things look in retrospect of last week and this week.
The real issue with these “choices” is that they were kind of blah. Ketchup vs Mayo? Yes to both, moving on. Kind of takes the tension out when you can “eeny meeny miney mo” the situation
Hitler – probably the only left-wing politician despised by nearly everyone.
