Muramasa: The Demon Blade - review 

GameDaily review

http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2009/09/08/cursed-mountain-review/


Muramasa is one of the best third-party games for the Wii, a fine balance of style and substance. The presentation will blow you away, while the old-fashioned combat will keep you slicing and dicing for hours. This one cuts deep, but in a good way.

 What?! Is this review written by an emo?

"It's nice to be able to change and modify," added BioWare boss Greg Zeschuk of the opportunity. "We think [Mass Effect 2 is] going to be a much better game than the first one."

Well if that's the case then Mass Effect 2 is easily going to be GOTY 2010 IMHO, because I thought the first one was a brilliant evolution of Kotor's style and an incredible game as is! I honestly don't understand how anyone could have not fallen in love with ME.....in fact the only person I know of who didn't like it much was Blackley at Gamespot....always whining about texture pop-in. Hahaha....who cares?! The game was amazing either way!

On a slightly more serious note, i'm a bit sensitive on the Caster Semenya incident.  it was the most horrific instance of racism on such a big stage in recent years.  all of my happiness and optimism and good feeling from the achievements of usain bolt went to shit over how cruelly that girl, yes girl, was ridiculed and humiliated.  for shame.

i wrote a blog about this on that day, but thought it was perhaps too serious and i didn't want to bother you guys so i didn't publish it

i believe none of that would have happened if she was from the US, the UK or even France or Germany, and certainly none of it would have happened if she was white.  being african made her an easy target

the women of eastern germany had more testosterone than you or me.  there was no question about their sex, nor is their ever talk of stripping them of their medals

Things are light here in part because we don't want any opinions or feelings to feel unwelcome or disregarded.  The last I'd want is to think your own thoughts to be a burden to the rest of us.

Now on this, I don't really know much of this specific incident, but I've been hearing of these gender questioning cases more than just this once.

Actually, everyone knows back then people were using, especially East Germany. And no one was accused of being racist by mentioning it. 

I agree they could have used more tact, but if there is a suspicion she is cheating then she should be checked. I do believe more powerful countries (USA, UK, France, etc.) get away with a lot more, but the motive here is money and not racism.

how exactly could she be cheating?  she was born with a pussy and has lived as a girl all her life.  she took no performance enhancing drugs.  should she have run against the men?  would she even be allowed?

when is an athlete too much of a freak to compete against the rest of them?

should michael phelps  not be allowed to compete because he has double-jointed elbows and feet as big as flippers all of which makes him faster than everybody else?  should andy roddick not be allowed to play because he has a snappy spine which enables him to serve faster than everybody else?

 She could be cheating in many ways, that's why they have doping tests. I am not saying she is guilty, but if people are suspicious they will test you (unless you are from some countries). It happened to Lance Amstrong, why would testing be any different for her?

I do not agree with putting a suspicion in the media, that was wrong.

 2 things:

1) You are not addressing my argument with this point

2) you should have mentioned Fedor!

It has actually become markedly difficult to establish actual gender outside of a DNA test, particularly due to intersex conditions.  For more, there's a Wikipedia article.

The biggest difficulty, I think, is that the divide of male and female is then either a sexist barrier, or an admission of a natural biological and unfair advantage.  As long as it is segregated, there is going to be the concern of male runners posing as female, regardless of the legitimacy of the complaint.

i think you have a slight misunderstanding of the situation.  doping is not the question here.  she passed her drug tests same as everybody.  there's no more question of her being doped than anybody else in that heat.  

she and no one else was submitted to sex identification tests because of accusations made to the IAAF.  if her being a girl is not enough, if there are certain medicals to determine when somebody is female enough to compete against other women, then everybody should be subjected to them.

...you're right i should have mentioned fedor Nyaa

 if her being a girl is not enough, if there are certain medicals to determine when somebody is female enough to compete against other women, then everybody should be subjected to them.


 Should these problems not be solved easy by a simple DNA test for all people?

It has actually become markedly difficult to establish actual gender outside of a DNA test, particularly due to intersex conditions.  For more, there's a Wikipedia article.

The biggest difficulty, I think, is that the divide of male and female is then either a sexist barrier, or an admission of a natural biological and unfair advantage.  As long as it is segregated, there is going to be the concern of male runners posing as female, regardless of the legitimacy of the complaint.

yes, here-in lies the question. apparently gender and sex are two different things.  i just don't see how someone can pose other barriers of entry besides one's actual gender.

apparently no one is questioning her having a vagina and not having a penis but even so, as you said due to some intersex condition she may be producing more testosterone than typical females, which would give her an advantage.

my question is, is that cheating?  should she not be allowed to run?  should she run in the paraolympics?  aren't all female runners rather strong and manly, when is one of them so manly that it isn't fair.

at the end of the day she is an innocent 18 year old girl, very new to the world of sports and not even professional, who was brought from her village there to run and she didn't deserve that treatment

I think that what happened to her was unfair, but at the same time who cares about track and field any more? It was over for me after Ben Johnson.  They are all roided up and it's only a matter of time before Bolt is revealed.
