'Hatred' Game - Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if they are linked to neo nazi's in Poland and the hooligan groups situated in Kiev-Ukraine. But they may not be, I don't know, that game doesn't seem that interesting anyways, but certainly controversial (reminds me of Manhunt).

GamerGate - Humans lol, does this constitute some sort of quasi internet False Flag playing groups against one another?


I like that they ask him why he liked a hate group on Facebook, and his response is "I don't watch TV, so I need some place to see the news." Yeah, and that's why Strom Thurmond liked the KKK.

During his first campaign to be POTUS I expressed concern about Obama being a member of racist Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years. The general response was just because he was a member doesn't mean he subscribed to everything the pastor preached. Does that not apply here as well?

Anyway, as far as HATRED goes, viewed as simply a social experiment, I find the existence of this game fascinating. For people against censorship, this is going to test just how vehemently you support your own position. For people who claim that videogames do not influence peoples behaviors, it will be interesting to hear why they oppose the extreme senseless violence of this game. Why is this game not okay but GTA is? Are people who admit to playing and enjoying this going to be labeled sociopaths? Is that fair? Does the context behind the wanton gruesome killing of humans dictate whether a game is socially acceptable or not?

My view is that there is nothing wrong with the existence of such a game. If it sells then there was an audience for such a game and this game is simply serving that audience. I am simply kind of indifferent to it.

Aren't there hundreds of people switching jobs all the time? Why is she special?

Well obviously he doesn't link to every low level designer or artist that leaves a team. But Jade Raymond has been in several key high positions (executive producer on several AAA games and Manager of her own studio). She is on the level with Ken Levine, and his comings and goings are always posted.

Not to belittle her or her...

I'm not saying anything bad about her, I just don't find her work relevant to the games I play. If we had a post about everyone who left a job in the game industry, this site would be pretty boring.

Eh? Blue posts links to stories about people in the industry moving up or moving on all of the time.

In my view it's not so hard to see where the accusation of her being there for looks comes from; there are relatively few female managing directors in the industry and one of the very few is stunningly pretty. The problem with assuming that without any evidence is that it precludes the possibility that she used hard work, knowledge, passion, and determination to get where she is. That, and that it doesn't seem to make sense that a person there just to be a pretty face be put in a position requiring genuine skill and experience. My thinking is that were she there just to "shut up and look pretty" she would be put as head of PR or something inane like that. Instead, she has been in a very important position on many games that turned out good to great. That tells me she is more than just a pretty face.

I see the Social Justice Warrior signal up in the Gotham night sky. The call has been made. Who will answer?

As far as Raymond's leaving goes, I hope she stays in the industry. She ran a good studio and has always been a class act.

Glad to hear she's apparently leaving of her own volition and not because of gamergate or harassment.

She's just another suit that gets extra attention due to her looks. /snore


Wow. In the first post. Shame

Gotcha. No apologies needed! My own post was intentionally pompous and probably could have been elaborated. Poe's law right?

No kidding. I don't know what's real anymore.

...People like Quinn, Sarkeesian, Wu and their supporters would call her a traitor to women for thinking that way. In fact, I've seen them do exactly that to people with similar viewpoints. This is not how you advance an otherwise just agenda. But you can't say that because you're slapped with fallacies and told you don't count. I don't know how you resolve that.

That's where I am at. Just about anything you say in opposition gets you labeled and discredited post haste. When the opposition has the media on its side (hell, a large part of the opposition IS the media) they control the narrative of the issue, it is nigh impossible to debate on equal terms.

K-Lite Codec Pack, works for everything and you don't need other video players to watch your videos with. That's Including XVid.

Works like a charm, watch all of your videos with Windows Media player with that Codec Pack.

That's what I use.

What am I enjoying about it? The world, the characters, the dialog, the weapons, the loot, the combat, the quests, the story. No snide remark here. But I am also not going to apologize for liking a game (I'm not really sorry that it depresses you despite what I said, but I hope you get some Prozac or something). If you want to look down on me for my choice of entertainment that's your prerogative.

And if you think about it, the "default Bluesnews community reaction" is a reasonable one. What's it to you if people like a game that you don't?

That people buy this uninspired BL2 clone is so utterly depressing.

Sorry for depressing you but I not only bought it; I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

What does a Metacritic rating have to do with what someone considers their own personal GOTY? Tastes and tolerances vary. I'm calling Shadows of Mordor my personal GOTY but I don't think for a second it will show up on any official list as GOTY.
