News Comments > The Culling 2 Launches: Players Quickly Culled

I'm came across this on Steam last night, and as I always do for entertainment I scanned the user reviews. Overall, very negative. Seems like fans of the first who got screwed are still a bit bitter.

News Comments > Overwatch League on ESPN

According to Twitch.com stats matches were viewed almost 110 million times in the first season of OWL. Clearly there's an audience. Personally I'm going to keep watching on Twitch, but I imagine that more people will be watching on ESPN than most people think. ESPN stepped out of the realm of exclusively traditional sports long ago, so I don't see this as weird at all.

As an aside Zoey is hot af.

I'm not seeing Joaquin as Joker, but then again I couldn't see Heath Ledger as Joker either until I saw the movie and was blown away by the job he did. Honestly though when I think Joker I think of the Arkham Knight game series - the graphic depiction coupled with Mark Hamill's brilliant voice acting was the epitome of perfection.

It's a reasonable suggestion, albeit one that asks for something that should be inherently obvious. But if a written policy stating "Don't be a fucking asshole to your player base on social media" is all they are asking for, it isn't that hard.

It's hard to imagine any writer more completely missing the point and deliberately misrepresenting what took place than this idiot did. So even though a male got fired - for being far less rude and demeaning than his female counterpart was, this is still somehow about unfair treatment of women? Riiiiiiight.

I am glad it is coming to PC, even if it is way late. If history is any indication, I'd say that modders will fix any weird port issues like frame rate caps within the first week, if not the first 24 hours.

I used "white-knighting" twice, and I stand by it. Anyone who defends a despicable a person who so readily plays the victim while berating and insulting a customer who was only trying to engage in polite discussion (and who previously celebrated the death of industry legend John Bain) while chalking the backlash up to white privileged misogynists is doing exactly that. Or, if you prefer, I can just say that they are being complete and utter assholes. I figured "white knight" sounded better. You can make sweeping claims about the use of terminology all you like; sorry but you don't control the narrative, as much as you'd like to.

> What other choice does ArenaNet have here?

the company can do whatever it wants. the question to grapple with is why thousands of people brigaded to get two people fired. was it really because they were fighting for the justice of men who are abused on twitter?

Who brigaded to get her fired at Paizo?

Why is so important to you that she be in the right here (even when she obviously isn't)? Rather than worry about the motivation of internet anons, why don't you take a moment to contemplate your own...?

Because self-loathing white-knighters can't accept that a woman can be a despicable person too. It's only the oh-so privileged white guys who can't see beyond the noses on their faces at fault.

There could always be more to the story, but that was a pretty hostile reply to a seemingly innocuous comment. She assumed he was correcting her, as opposed to trying to hold a discussion, and assumed this was being done because of her gender. I can not state this often enough, feelings are not facts, if you have a strong emotional reaction to something it's probably a good idea to take some time and figure why as opposed to reacting.

On the other hand, a dog that has been beaten often will flinch when you go to pet it.

Sorry but that is a lame defense. We are people, not animals. Past experiences do not excuse current bad behavior. If they did, I could get away for all kinds of heinous shit. A lot of us could. The world doesn't work that way.

The second part of her post is just condescending and unprofessional. The first part is plain despicable. This in my view is done specifically to render any and all further criticism moot by playing the victim card. I'm all for gender and race equality in gaming, but this is what happens when pandering to a specific group or class goes too far, as it has in gaming. The current sentiment of the climate is weaponized for the benefit of the "oppressed and marginalized". It's a cowardly way of disarming detractors by unfairly portaying anyone who criticizes as one of the victimizers. White Knight Crusaders Eurogamer and Kotaku will be all over this and make it about gender when it is clearly not nor ever was.

News Comments > Turtle Rock Making Competitive FPS Sequel

    I was wondering what Turtle Rock had even DONE since L4D2, and then you guys mentioned Evolve, and I snickered at the thought of these guys taking on a AAA globally known game franchise.

    Unless they're just talking about Evolve 2.

    Evolve was a cynical, greed-driven, DLC-laden, content-starved shitshow when it first released. I tend to blame the publisher, 2K Games, more than Turtle Rock for the decision to make it that way. Once Turtle Rock fixed the game up and released it as F2P Evolve Stage 2, however, it was a really fun game. I remember reading that the player count rose something like 25000% the week of Stage 2's release. The game's future looked bright. Then 2K decided to pull Turtle Rock off the project completely and ceased all funding. Had 2K not been douchebags Evolve could have -ahem- evolved into a great game with a healthy sustained player base. An Evolve 2 done correctly (i.e. built as an actual fucking game and not a cynical storefront with some gameplay attached) could be something really special.

    7. Re: Skyrim Creation Club Launches with Survival Mode Jun 30, 2018, 17:07 Prez
     
    Couple of differences that I see - while the license is back with Tolkien Enterprises, EA still owns the game and its title (afaik anyway -I can't find anywhere that says it was ever acquired by anyone else). Mods for an existing game would mean the users own an original copy (though likely a large portion of the community pirated it), while recreating a game in its entirety seems like a very different animal. Also Warner Bros owns the license to make videogames using the LOTR license (though I don't know if its exclusive) so while they may not care about mods for a game made before they had the license, they might care about what is essentially a new game using a license they currently own. Admittedly I'm no copyright lawyer so this is just one man's opinion.

    I have both games on disc around here somewhere... Anyway the first was way too basic and limited, but the second one was a solid and engaging fantasy RTS made cooler by the LOTR wrapper. I can't imagine this ever being allowed to be completed, and I highly doubt any publisher, much less Warner Bros, would be the least bit interested in putting resources into an RTS.

    EDIT: Found them! Says they are EA games.

    I was stunned by how bad the E3 presentation of Anthem was, but in all seriousness that game will probably still come out on or near its announced release time (1st quarter 2019 iirc?) Squadron 42 doesn't even have a schedule as far as I can tell, so who knows.

    I definitely get a sense of edginess from Bioware about Anthem, whereas the Bioware of old always had an air of confidence and even a bit of swagger. I get the feeling that the current devs feel that Bioware lives or dies based on how well Anthem does. EA is the game studio serial killer after all.
