Which game companies have QA unions? Does EA and Epic have them?
Most game companies do not have unions. My guess would be no.

Why buy it when you live it?

I am flattered by all the direct replies.
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.
For those of you who are intolerant. Well, I suggest you reflect on that character trait. You may have something in common with those you seek to silence.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.Yes, like the good intention of "let people say whatever they want to say" leading to the preventable hell of lies and misinformation causing the deaths of millions.

ROFL, a pathetic game that is boring beyond belief. Just about any MMORPG is light years better than this game. It needs a major update and the developers are in denial that it is needed.

I don't really understand that for an early access with limited content. Is it that much fun to play?

So basically you never got out of the imprisonment sim you start in?

At the end of the day IF they decided to back out publishing the game because there is a planned school shooting map that will be introduced then how can ya blame them? At the end of the day, you do what's best for the company and the company image (unless you're Activision/Blizzard).
So lets play devil advocate.... DOOM, GTA, Call of Duty have been the poster childs of blame for child violence. Microsoft Flight Simulator was included in the blame for 9/11. If they do produce a school shooting level, and if it has kids that can be shot, it's gonna cause a shitshow of publicity. It'll probably be labeled as a "school shooting simulator", and even the game's title will be a talking point by talking heads on TV.
I can see both sides of the discussion, but I wouldn't want to involve my company with it.

I've played it for 5 hours now and it's basically SWAT4 with better graphics and refined mechanics. I grew up on Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, SWAT etc and really love this sort of thing. Takedown was a complete and utter fucking joke next to this. This, for the first time in YEARS, feels like they made a tactical shooter properly. I was hoping Ground Branch would be what this is now.
It's very satisfying to make it to the end of a level, it's pretty hardcore. Definitely worth the asking price
