The main reason why stuff gets banned is if there's sexual violence or drug use related to "rewards". (E.g GTA3 was banned back in the day because you could have sex with a hooker, then run her over and collect money (a "reward") from her body after.)
Would this have been banned outright in Australia in the past?

So - Earth, this planet, has no problem. We are just a temporarily dominant species and will go the way of the Dodo one day with most likely one huge difference: we made ourselves extinct. But life and evolution will move on, we are not this important, really.
Also I got to say that I think Greta Thunburg has psychological problems.
BIGtrouble77 wrote on Sep 1, 2019, 17:05:It's important to remember that half a dozen people corroborated parts of Zoe's accusations. Other people also made accusations. Other people had also cut ties with the guy over the past few years because of his behavior. You put all that together, it seems really, really, really hard to believe the accusations are false.
I'm not saying Zoë Quinn is the same type of person as my aunt, but it's uncanny how similar they both are. The most frustrating part is that we need to support the victims but keep our heads on straight to know when we are being manipulated.

It might sound nice to say "innocent until proven guilty" but that's exactly why the majority of sexual assaults are not even reported. You're concerned about the occasional man who might be wrongly accused but don't seem to care about the majority of actual victims who have to live with the trauma, while the offender probably goes on to abuse others too.
How many false accusations should you consider as immoral to justify the 92% that is true? If your answer is zero then, you sir, are correct. A single false allegation is WRONG. There's no such thing as "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." When one false accusation can destroy a person's life and reputation, and potentially lead to suicide, there's no room for false allegations.
Schroeder isn't worried about white male youth themselves, she said, calling this generation "the most open-hearted potentially kindest critical thinking loving group of boys that I've ever seen," she said.

A developer who can think beyond the money bags?
Massive, MASSIVE kudos to him.
Kxmode wrote on Aug 7, 2019, 19:53:I don't get it. The worst thing you could find to cite there is "nobody owes you the game", and meanwhile the dev is being called a f----- n----- k---, a piece of shit, and told to kill himself. And you're suggesting it's somehow his fault? Don't stir the angry gamer nest!
What a clueless dingbat.

I've seen no proof of actual threats other than those devs claims. Seeing the way they already behaved on their blog, reddit and discord, I have zero confidence in them not lying.
Come on now, receiving threats in the gaming industry is not new. Do you honestly think with all the hate shown from this vocal minority they haven't received any threats?

I worry that this is going to be MP only...
From Arkane? Was there even multiplayer in Prey or the Dishonored series? Honest question I played all the games but never even glanced if there was multiplayer.
I should hope they wouldn't abandon single player like that, but anything is possible, I guess.

his answer was "I try to find out ways to rip the company off".
Beamer wrote on Feb 4, 2019, 11:30:I think a big part of it is that gamers are so tribalistic and there are a lot of Steam fanboys out there. Aligning yourself with a platform that just wants to make money off you is gross but gamers have a long history of that.
I can't be bothered to give a shit about this, and I'm just surprised at how angry this decision has made people.
Simon Says wrote on Feb 2, 2019, 16:16:That's the entire market, but not all games will have that same split. E.g. Ubisoft's latest financial report says 65% of their sales were from the two major consoles, and only 18% from PC. For games like Metro, CJ_Parker's 15% figure for PC is pretty accurate.
The console and PC markets are almost equal in market shares. Source
The Consoles comprise 25% of the market share, PC 24%, with mobile king at 51%. ( 2018 numbers )

Gaben should just threaten to delist all of Deep Silvers games on Steam.
