Wow okay boycotting Fanatical.

Ignoring your absolutely batshit defense of a guy that went across state lines hoping to kill people, you're angry at a company choosing not to do business with another company, and your solution is not doing business with them.

Why in the world is it cancel culture in the first case and not the second

The hypocrisy astounds me

You don't understand, the right's problem with "cancel culture" isn't the boycotting, because they like to do that too. No, the problem they have with it is that the left actually do it effectively. The right would love to be able to cancel the stuff they don't like nearly as well, they just can't do it.

It's really weird that having a female lead character, and choosing not to make fun of people in a game that are already the target of jokes (and worse) in real life is somehow such a controversial decision. And then Rockstar gets accused of being "woke", which Quinn points out requires that they are "shoving it in everyone's faces", by, uh, not talking about it at all? Casually mentioning it in an interview? It's like people think that SMITE's asinine parody take on it is actually how it will play out.

I guess people just need something to be mad about.

Hell even Cyberpunk 2077 has a gay romance with River and it was cut out (and I mean you can go ALL the way up to a kiss then he goes all straight).

Originally the scripts had all the characters as effectively bisexual until they finalized what orientation they wanted to go with. It wasn't "cut out" because of any reluctance to have a male homosexual character. Otherwise they wouldn't have had Kerry Eurodyne, who is definitely a male and definitely homosexual.

I mean I guess he's not wrong, just making something and then tossing it over to marketing to figure out how to sell it and make money on it is probably not a hugely smart business move.

Yeah, it's easy to make this quote sound bad, but the reality is if you are making games as a way to make money, then you need to figure out how you are going to make money from the game from the start, not after the game is finished. If you're an indie who just wants to make the game, and profit is secondary, sure, don't care about it. But most businesses don't have that luxury.

Surprising to see that some people think the voters in each state should not have the right to determine abortion laws in their states. That's nothing but democracy, with people's votes counting.

You don't get to use "democracy" to support oppression. With "democracy", a lot of southern states were perfectly ok with slavery, so I guess you would have been perfectly fine allowing that to continue, because, hey, it "doesn't get any more democratic than that".

Yeah, he sure showed them by giving them $15,000...

He's not doing it to "show them". Thanks to his little stunt, his name is hitting all over the place, including here at Blue's. He's advertising. Considering he's one of the more popular streamers on Twitch, I'd assume it's working for him. With the subs and donations he gets in a month, blowing $15k to get this sort of publicity is peanuts.

Despite EA getting more criticism (in general), I still consider Activision to be the biggest pile of shit publisher. As soon as Blizzard entered their sphere of influence, they started their downward trend - which has only accelerated over time. At this point, even if they were to separate (which I doubt would ever happen), I don't think they've got a soul left to build from.

Good for them.. It's ridiculous to force employees to take an experimental MRNA injection with unknown side effects.

No one is forcing them to do anything. Instead, they get a choice. They can get the vaccine and continue to work for their employer, or choose not to, and go elsewhere.

Yes, I do tolerate anti-vaxers and conspiracy theorists. Let their wild claims be disproven, as that doctor is doing on Instagram. Allow the scientific method to showcase its resilience to unsound scrutiny. It is through criticism that we develop more sound facts.

Yes, if the anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists have proven anything, it's that they will change their opinions when presented with facts and scientific data.

It might be an unpopular opinion but I really like Cyberpunk 2077. It could be because I love the cyberpunk setting, or maybe I love the open world rpg style that has been my current jam. Personally I think the "badness" of it has been WAY overblown. That said, as far as I am concerned, CDPR has permanently lost the right to claim they have a "commitment to quality" after the horrible release that was done without a commitment to anything but the almighty dollar. Very disappointing.

I wouldn't say it was overblown, it was just mostly focused on the issues with last-gen consoles. And the game was pretty terrible on them at release. It wasn't nearly as bad on PC.

But I'm not sure why people are treating Cyberpunk 2077 as an isolated experience. Do people not remember how buggy The Witcher 3 was at release? It took quite a while, and multiple DLCs before it got to the point it's at now, where people praise it as one of the best RPGs of all time. Will Cyberpunk get to that point? Probably not, but I fully expect CDPR to continue to refine the game until it's up to the same standards.

Breaking news: Every email you ever sent from or received on your work email account, isn't private.

What are you talking about? Every work email = public? So There's no such thing as a reasonable expectation of privacy in a private email???

I think we've lost the thread here pretty badly, people don't even know what they're arguing for anymore.

Are you all for zero privacy? Or just really excited about being anti-racism?

No, every work email = accessible by your employer. You cannot send "private" emails from a work email account. You keep trying to make this about privacy, but you have no privacy in your work correspondence. This has nothing to do with "public" vs "private", and everything to do with "employee" vs "employer". Anything you do while being paid by your employer, using your employer's resources, is the property of your employer, who can do with it whatever they want - including terminate you if they don't happen to like it. This includes the contents of your email.

In its initial rollout on Call of Duty: Warzone, the kernel-level driver will only operate when you play on PC

I can understand why they want to go this route, but the "initial rollout" part of that doesn't exactly inspire confidence that they won't make it run all the time in the future.

They better not fuck this up. One of my favourite games of all time, so I'd love a well-done remake. As long as they don't try and change too much beyond the graphics.

Yeah, if they aren't even going to fix a bug like NHAM (Next Hit Always Misses), it seems weird to be complaining that you can't get full UW support. Hell, I'm surprised they are allowing for anything greater than 16:9, considering the default limitation was 800x600. Allowing for 19:9 already gives widescreen a significant advantage, and for a game that includes pvp, that's a concern.

If you don't understand the difference between pointing out an industry is overwhelmingly white, and calling them "basement dwelling neckbeards", and you don't understand why someone might consider there to be a difference, you really ought to read more.

It's not blaming the victim, it's using common sense. Sure, you should be able to leave your car parked outside, unlocked, and with the keys in the ignition without having to worry about it being stolen. But if you do, you're a dumbass.

Same principle here.
