I am going to buy two copies of this - one for me to simulate mass murder for my own entertainment, and one to gift to Timmeh so his head can explode. What a bunch of self-important tripe.

Greeeeeaaaat. Then when he hunts you down and kills you for your kindness, the Feds will find a copy of the game in his Steam list and have it to blame.

It is also a complete travesty that there are so many people excited about playing this garbage.

Disagreed. And many of those interested, or vocally interested, in playing this consider it a bit of a political choice. They think it's giving the finger to people they perceive as trying to take things away from them.

The sad irony is that, if this does well, it will catch the attention of those both with the power to and desire to actually take things away, unlike those currently perceived as trying to do that.

That guy is the writer for femnist frequency, just a FYI.

I also looked up your reference to "gghazi" and found this thread.

Topic: Does anyone really care about Valve selling Hatred.
Answers: "Not Really."

50 responses, all "not really."
Because this is what I think is repeatedly misunderstood. The "SJWs" don't really care. They think the game is a bad idea, but they don't really care about it being made. They don't think it should be stopped by some higher power. They'd prefer if the developers realized it was a bad idea, but if that doesn't happen, they don't want more intervention.

Reading through the posts you're referring to, they seem to take more issue with GG saying "Valve can't be allowed to do this!" than anything. Their point was that Valve can do what Valve wants to do, much like the Hatred devs can. They weren't saying "Hell yes, Valve is helping this game not get made!" they were saying "Valve has every right to not sell something if they aren't comfortable with it."

Looking at KotakuInAction, I see plenty of "Valve can't be allowed" posts. Looking at GamerGhazi, I see no "Hatred's dev can't be allowed" posts.

But that's all the fundamental misunderstanding, no? People seem to think "SJWs" want to take things away, when in reality, most just want people to choose to make better things most of the time.

Yes, mysterious people not at all in this thread.
Even scanning that Community link, which is moving too quickly, I don't see anyone saying "this shouldn't be allowed to be made." People are saying it shouldn't be released because it will cause a lot of trouble. But no one is demanding it not be made. They're saying the developers should think better about it.

There may be people saying otherwise, but not in the first three pages, and I'm not going deeper than that.

You mean like the guy who writes AS's crap? Well that mouth doesn't get any bigger right. Or the stuff floating around in gghazi the last two days. But that might be considered a "small minority" I suppose. Or the ones on twitter yesterday, and are now screaming at the top of their keyboards. So yeah there are people out there wanting to ban the game, among those who said "we don't want to ban games."

I hope Valve and Destructive Creations both have good lawyers. When the next Dustin Klebold decides to go open loop, and they discover that he might have been a fanatic of this game....whoaboy.

Yeah because heaven forbid we hold an individual responsible for their actions right, after all we know the game made them do it. How's it going today Jack Thompson?

Going to that guy's Twitter page, his problem seems to be about hatespeech more than violence. He thinks that the developer is a hate organization.

I love spicy food, but I'm allergic to it. Took me a while to realize, and it isn't all spicy food but definitely jalapeno. Within 1.5 to 4 hours I will end up doubled over with cramps. Somewhere in that time frame I'll end up on the toilet re-enacting Dumb & Dumber, but then all is well.

Like I said, it took me a while to realize this. Once I did, I cut back on spicy food. My tolerance has dropped accordingly. I still love the stuff and still eat a lot, I just pick and choose when and where based upon my evening plans, haha.

Spcy food just tastes so damn good.

Except the SJW's who are coming right out saying "it shouldn't exist" and want to ban games like GTA. This is of course them coming out months ago saying "we're not trying to ban games." So yeah, there are people out there saying they want to ban games, they want to ban games like this and GTA, and I'll hazard a guess that they also want to ban anything that doesn't fit with their narrow world view on what's "correct in their eyes."

That said, this will be the new pissing boy for everyone with an axe to bear against gaming in general.

Which is really the primary (only?) argument I've had against this game. The value it adds isn't worth the shitstorm it'll bring. Which doesn't mean I don't think the devs should be allowed to make it, it just means I think they're a bunch of assholes ruining everything for everyone else without really adding anything meaningful or interesting. At least the prior whipping boys like MK and GTA did that.

Yep, exactly.

Quality shouldn't matter. If it is a game and you believe that games deserve protections equal to books or movies then that should be the end of it. To those attacking gaming Doom didn't add anything to society in general, so it ought not exist. They will focus on the violence and only the violence. No game could justify its existence in the eyes of critics of gaming violence. They don't concern themselves with such nuance as context and the like. There are a lot of asshiole developers; the point is that they are part of gaming ust like everyone else.

Doom was a game that brought about a revolution in games.
Hatred will be something remembered solely for its attempts to be controversial.

And, again, no one is saying "it shouldn't exist." We're saying that games would be stronger without having this weak spot to pick at and that the developers are creating it solely to profit off of the controversy and are kind of dicks for doing it at the expense of games as a whole.

There is no difference in the amount of violence in this game compared to any other shooter being published today. The only notable part is that it is presented in as tasteless a manner as possible for shock value.

But if games are art, doesn't context matter?
And if context is meaningless, how can you claim games are art?

Valve has taken the right approach on this, if they wanted to censor games they'd also have to take down GTA. And they wouldn't want to have to do that.

God. Video gamers are so obsessed with "censoring" and "freedom" today with no clue what it means.

Valve saying "we will not publish this" is NOT censorship.
Valve putting it on steam but changing all the people to aliens would be. Or making blood green. Or forbidding anyone from making the game.

On the plus side, Comcast just doubled the speeds of all their internet tiers here. I went from getting 55mps to 126mbps. Up is still 11mbps.

I'll very happily take it.

Yeah, true, but I agree with them. What was the last good R Scott movie? American Gangster? And before that, Kingdom of Heaven (director's cut, of course). When was the last time he had two in a row? 15 years ago?

I'm going with Gladiator, honestly, though I didn't see either you mentioned. Didn't look worth the run time.

Nobody in here mentioned a Freedom of Speech issue except the people who came in here to disabuse the thread of a misconception that didn't happen. Sigh.

Of course Valve has the right to ban whatever it wants from its store but that doesn't mean we have to be happy with it. I would have hoped that Valve would stay far away from playing moral police with creative work. It's also very hypocritical to continue selling Postal 1, 2, and 3 while banning this. Total can of worms here and a foot in the door for crusader groups against violent video games.

Note that, in Valve's statement, they say they will not publish this game.
They do not publish Postal 1, 2 or 3.

They are also not "banning" this. They're simply opting not to publish it. Choosing not to publish something is neither censorship nor banning.

It's just choosing not to be a part of something. And it's a business decision. Valve isn't trying to "protect" us, they're just looking at this as more trouble than it's worth and not worth having their name in any way attached to.

I sort of like the way it looks. It isn't real, keep telling yourself that because it is true. I'm anti-real machine gun/tanks for citizens, but have no problems devastating pixels. Not sure why Steam wouldn't carry it. Do they not understand what they sell isn't real?
Doesn't matter if it's not "real". If someone made a film about a guy who runs around killing Jews because he hates Jews, and the film celebrates his hatred, it would not be picked up by any respectable distributor. But would you say it's totally fine because it's just a film and not real?

Is the game going around killing jews only? What specific group are they targeting in hatred or just everyone?

I will modify my thought though, Valve has the total right to not carry it. But the makers of the game have every right to make it and distribute it however they can. Fair enough.

I haven't seen a single person say they don't have the right to make the game.
Everyone is just saying they seem like a bunch of assholes making a shitty game that's basically clickbait in gameplay form.

No, I think I would rather try to educate someone rather than have them live with such a misinformed view. If the time is wasted then whatever, its mine to do with as I please.

LittleMe, the steel wouldn't need to burn, it would just need to be hot enough and under enough stress to warp. Jet fuel burns at up to 1500 degrees, more than enough to cause deformation in steel supports. Why? They are carrying the weight of a massive building and are being super heated, even below their melting point of 2750 degrees they will still warp, buckle and in the case of support braces essentially fail which leads to a collapse.

The towers themselves did not collapse perfectly and I have no idea what you mean by that, you need to be more specific.

9/11 was no conspiracy, it was an act of terrorism. There are plenty of real conspiracies, there is no need to go inventing others. There are many resources by people unaffiliated with government debunking the 9/11 conspiracy claims, I suggest reading up on it and you will quickly discover that there is no real evidence or logic to support such a scenario.

You're right, but we've had these discussions here. Endlessly. People have said what you've said. And often, the conclusion is "I never thought about that before," but six months later it's "WTC7 HAD NO DAMAGE" all over again.

Yeah, welcome to 1984. When you look at all this shit that's happened since 9/11 how can you not believe it was inside job? Cui bono? Who benefits? Who benefited the most from 9/11? It sure as shit wasn't a bunch of Muslim sheepherders.

An important skill learned from a life of sheep herding is how to make metal melt from office fires when that's never happened before and also make a building mildly smoking collapse perfectly into its own footprint several hours later.

You don't think jet fuel burning in a concentrated environment can melt metal? The towers did not collapse perfectly, that's kind of ridiculous to imply considering the immense damage.

Don't. I mean, "has never happened before" is pretty obvious, right? A jetliner never hit a building before. And "collapse perfectly," I've shown at least a dozen times here a video that pretty clearly shows where the collapse started. If it was anything other than due to the impact, it would not have started at the impact. But it did. And it makes perfect sense - floors above fall and the natural weakness goes straight down.

Anyone still questioning this is just insane. Sorry, LittleMe, but it's such a weird thing to question by now.

Huh?

Windows 1.0: 1985
Windows 2.0: 1987
Windows 3.0: 1990
Windows 95: 1995
Windows 98: 1998
Windows 2000/ME: 2000
Windows XP: 2001
Windows Vista: 2007
Windows 7: 2009
Windows 8: 2012
Windows 10: 2015(?)

Which one was 6 months and not 3-5 years? 2009 to 2012, or 2012 to 2015?
Or do people just not really realize how much slower time is moving when they're in their 30s than in their teens?

If you're on 7, you're on an OS that is about to be 6 years old. That's at least two computers for most people here. That's like using Windows 98 in 2005.
I'm on 7. I like 7. I'm not going to cry about there being new versions in the 6 years since the OS I'm using was released.

6. Years. Think about 2009. Lost was the top TV show. Michael Jackson was alive. Walter Cronkite was alive. Saturn was alive. Heath Ledger was alive. Conan O'Brien was on NBC.
