Just another example of the nation of pussies we're becoming. People whining about off-color jokes at THEIR expense, probably while making their own jokes about some other group.

People really need to stop caving to these people and tell them to shut the fuck up instead. The community of whiny shitheads is not large enough to affect your bottom line, they are just loud, and can be ignored or told off.

Actually, I doubt most complaining about this were the butt of the joke.

Both of the people whose tweets appear in the Kotaku story appear to be transgendered people.

I'm not sure how this is a "transphobic" joke.

The man intended to have sex with a woman. The woman was a man pretending to be a woman.
How are you this oblivious. It's a joke at transgender people's expense, and if I were a transgender woman I would find this joke really offensive too. Not only does it deny transgender people's identity (hello what even is gender), it also implies that suicide is preferable to intimacy with those transgender freaks. If you can't see how that's offensive you've got a serious empathy deficiency.

Majority of jokes are at the expense of someone in one way or another. They are however jokes. Some in good taste, some in bad. You don't have to laugh.

When do we start to get upset at things that make fun of straight white males?


Being a straight white male that somewhat self-deprecates, I'd like to see that. Do you have any links?

I've been lurking the site, but I rarely post. Toss in eleven hour work days and some health issues with my wife, I'm finding very little time to comment on anything.
And stupidly only getting paid for eight of those hours...
Going off on the usual tangent, I've fallen in love with listening to podcasts while working. There is a chunk of news and some broad entertainment podcasts, the but the vast bulk of what I listen to is gaming/industry podcasts. Gaming was always my true passion, but I now know more than I have at any time...but it just further negates my wish to comment on things when any given item has been discussed twenty times over.

Wah wah - problems of the first world.

Playing indies, but wondering where the next big, defining game is,

Wondering what you listen too? Here are three of my favs:

Gamers with Jobs.
Slashfilmcast.

Philips Launches Two-in-One Monitor.

My dream monitor: 36" 3440 x 1440 pixel 21:9 ratio 144Hz slightly curved LED backlit IPS monitor for around $500. I think that's doable right now, but if I had access to future tech, I'd go OLED.

I thought it was funny that both Obsidian and the backer used the text change to comment on the situation. Obsidian's initial change to remove the "offending" original text:

Here lies Firedorn, a bard, a poet.
He was also a card, but most didn't know it.
A poet he wrote in jest was misread
They asked for blood, so now he's just dead.

The author's replacement for that:

A cube made of mallow,
A sweet, fluffy fellow,
Was held in the fire.
When pink turned to black,
Ready was the snack,
Roasted on the pyre.

mag,

I don't mind Obsidian changing it, it doesn't matter to me. Though calling it voluntary isn't exactly correct; the backer *consented* to changing it, in the face of this "backlash." He did not have some kind of change of heart on his own and initiate the change. The impetus was Anonymous Social Justice Tweeter #475884, and Obsidian facilitated it. Do you think they are open to any backer changing their text submission now, for any reason? No, they almost certainly are not. They made an exception, in response to the phony outrage.

The weird part is that they put out a backer email yesterday stating that some piece of backer content had been changed, but without any reference at all to what it was. They spoke of it as if it was a mistake that it had made it into the game, as if it didn't mesh with the setting or lore, not that some random idiot on the internet complained about it.

It's come to our attention that a piece of backer-created content has made it into Pillars of Eternity that was not vetted. Once it was brought to our attention, it followed the same vetting process as all of our other content. Prior to release, we worked with many of our backers to iterate on content they asked to be put into the game that didn't strike the right tone.

In the case of this specific content, we checked with the backer who wrote it and asked them about changing it. We respect our backers greatly, and felt it was our duty to include them in the process. They gave us new content which we have used to replace what is in the game. To be clear, we followed the process we would have followed had this content been vetted prior to the release of the product.

Is there evidence that the content creator was aware of the backlash? Before Obsidian informed him, I mean.

No self-respecting PC gamer should buy GTA V after the contempt that Rockstar has shown for the platform. I know I certainly won't, despite owning every other entry in the series. I prefer not to pay the people pissing in my face.

You get so enraged by a 3 month delay or by a 5 month later shipping date then the 'next gen' consoles (dunno which impacted your opinion more) but defend Chris Roberts game that's been pushed back constantly, had it's release broken up from 'complete' to 'episodic' while investing more into it?!

I hear you about the past, but it does seem different this time. First, the version for XB1 & PS4 are based on the x86 procs, just like PC. Second, it seems like they're taking the time to get it right for PC, delaying it when it didn't appear to be fully baked for the original launch date.

Won't save em from the craptastic underdelivering design.

California is running out of water but the MIIC needs to waste 400 billion on some shitty planes for a war that'll never happen.

If a friend has E:D is there any kind of discount for referrals? I really want to get this but I just can't stomach $60 when I'm not entirely sure, 1. My system can handle it adequately and 2. That it's something I'll play $60 worth of content out of it...

I don't understand why there can't be some kind of tutorial/demo mission or something. I mean, it's an ONLINE game (for all intents and purposes) so I don't get why they can't do something like that? Would help people to decide if they have the right equipment. I've been told by my close friend that he uses an Xbox360 controller and while a little unwieldy, it does work ok, if you don't want to shell out for an X52/HOTAS right now...
=-Rigs-=

I have a Thrustmaster T-Flight, and it's a lot better for space games than the 360 controller, and should only set you back $50-60.

Target has it cheaper than Amazon.

That doesn't strike you as spin? Funny timing that they were bought just 30 days before planning an unrelated shutdown.

In addition to the other reasons, it just doesn't make sense for Sony to waste money on OnLive just to shut it down, considering that it wasn't very long ago that they dumped SOE.

I liked the argument that they picked up OnLive for the patents to protect their investment in Gaikai.

Corrupt judge decides to get in while the getting's good...shocker!

And the feds knew he downloaded this in the first place how exactly? That's the most important question that's not even been asked here.

Well, it was over bittorrent. If he was downloading to his public folder (which a lot of clients have as default), it would have been visible, I think.

Congress already requires all video distributors to include close captioning, and all IP distribution to include CC on television content. Basically, the only major thing left out was movies over IP delivery. This lawsuit was trying to close that loophole. Do you really consider that abusurd?

That being said, most Netflix content has closed captioning. I'm not sure why some stuff doesn't, as it seems like there should have been captioning for it when it was originally made.
