This has to be the most inane, naive, sophomoric Op Ed ever posted here.

Yea just what we need, another Great Leap Forward, or equivalent of the the Russian Marxist revolution. Burn everything down and lynch anyone anonymously accused.

Yeah what does she know. I mean its not like she's a woman in the gaming industry working at Ubisoft or anything. Let's just dismiss what she said as if she's a child regardless of what she actually said. We'll get so far doing that...I don't know why we haven't done it before!

SW 2 was trash. SW 1 was great and there was nothing you know what about it

Wow there are about 13,000 Steam reviewers that disagree with you on SW 2 and also a 78 on metacritic. That's some trash right there indeed.

We have over 50,000 employees and no real problems. We teach people to be mature and respectful. If they can't be, they're gone.

My wife worked for a company with about 150 - her office was 20. Very different culture. Men felt free to say whatever they'd like. It was gross and disturbing. Those people would never last at a large corporation. Incidentally, she was one of 2 in that office. My office is 50% female. My company is flourishing. Her old one failing. No coincidence. A rotten culture leads to a failing business

While I agree with most of what you said. I think that the whole point of this is that a rotten culture doesn't automatically lead to a failing business. That's why these bad practices have been around for so long. Especially in the games industry. Riot Games, Ubisoft, Techland...these aren't companies that are dying.

It basically comes down to doing the decent thing as human beings when we see other human beings being mistreated. Regardless of if a business may die now or way later. The cost is the emotional well-being of fellow humans. That alone should be enough to encourage us not to do nothing.

Yeah assholes being horrible to women at the workplace and being suitably punished for it is going to lead us down a horrible rabbit hole of suppressed rights and an Orwellian nightmare.

This stuff is NOT OK on any level.

I guess they forgot to mention of japan where nudity is not allowed but PC games Called Rape play where your stalk and rape girls is totally allowed.


For example...there is a penis festival in Japan. With penis shaped props and everything. But genitals are banned from porn and games.


Do you even know what that festival is all about? Its not about sex in the way you might be thinking, its about bringing luck and fertility to couples looking to have children and to promote couples to have kids.

And Im so glad they removed that bullshit wall running I hate that crap in games.

It doesn't matter what its about. It is a penis festival. The ban on genitals in media also doesn't specifically have to do with sex...it is all banned.

And wall running was awesome in the Jedi Knight games.

It's a very weird combination of seemingly opposing views existing together.

For example...there is a penis festival in Japan. With penis shaped props and everything. But genitals are banned from porn and games.

And I have seen some of the most depraved sex style games you can think of with rape and torture and everything in between. But the authorities think that if they just block out the genitals...its A-OK.

I believe it a case of most people having their kinks (like all of us) but it is considered horrible to publicly display them openly.

And the low birth rates are seemingly more related to economic conditions. With women expecting a man to be the sole upkeeper of the home while they stay home and mind the children. Its a bit more complex than that but you have the gist of it.

Oh no. That's certainly next on the chopping block. There isn't anything the moonbats won't be coming after if anyone is offended in even the slightest amount. Big Brother is coming to be sure. Another year or two they'll be opening the "re-education" centers. Doubleplus good, comrade.


The confederate flag is a symbol of people who thought slavery was a-ok and were willing to go to war over it. There's a pretty big gap between that and some cartoon boobs.

Yeah, but the Dukes of Hazzard were such nice guys!

Yeeehaw!

What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Well he's not in a court for one thing. And he hasn't denied the accusations for another. And in the court of public opinion my thoughts are just as valid as your thoughts on the matter of guilt.

The thing is most of these cases are actually what you see is what you get. There is some odd thing that happens when talented people get into a position where they have a certain amount of power. They tend to want to dominate and control all those around them...like they are owed the allegiance and subservience of the women they work with. I'm sure its a mental illness and I'm sure it could have been stopped if someone had been firm and told this person to get some help before it got to those levels. But unfortunately, no one bothered to speak out about it. So here we are.

So only people of a particular ethnicity can create characters of said ethnicity?


No...but it is highly unlikely that the characters they create will be accurately portrayed and resonate with the people who they are based off of if they do not at least engage with them. And it is blatantly obvious that they do not do this to any great degree at present.

A black character is not simply a white character with a different skin texture. A black character is not a simple stereotype to be pulled from the media. But we see that all too often in video games.

This game has a harmful micro-transaction system. Cosmetics that should cost a few bucks end up costing $180. The stash tabs are $5-15 bucks apiece. Their announcements typically announce a new micro-transaction item. For example, this one on 6/18 includes this snippet:

"If you're looking for some extra character slots for your account for launch weekend, we're running a sale on these right now! Additionally, this is your last chance to get Thaumaturgy Mystery Boxes! It will leave the store when our next mystery box enters the store! Keep in mind that if you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's still possible to get a free Thaumaturgy Mystery Box when you spend any amount of points in the store. NOTE: this is only possible once per account. Additional purchases do not grant additional mystery boxes. If you need some extra points, we recommend checking out the Harvest supporter packs."

I don't mind when a free game has a micro-transaction component. But I do mind when the publisher employs psychologically manipulative tactics to get people to keep buying stuff.

And yet I've never bought anything from their store...weird how that worked for me...

You know what the funny thing is, most white people aren't pissed off and recognize the plight of our brothers.
The pissed off ones are now a minority and that's why they're angry. They're not used to being the underdog.
Well we got news for them. Change is coming and they won't be able to do a damn thing about it.

Um...no. The pissed off ones are the ones that are rioting and looting in the streets. The other side consists of people who are annoyed with it. Most of them are just as annoyed as they were before it started because they don't agree with the approach taken for change -- it's led to destruction of property, injury, and death. The effectiveness of the protests has run its course. Politicians have committed to pushing for change - that's the only goal they can expect to reach. Anything else is going to have a negative impact on the cause.

You know what's funny? The 'calm down and be rational" crowd have not done a damn thing about police brutality and violence against black people for decades. But now somehow when we've said fuck you for breaking the social contract by not caring about the people who are supposed to have the same rights and protections as you, and started to show you what its like to live in fear for just a little bit. Well now its end of the world and you're worried about the negative impact?

We have had fucking decades of nothing but negative impact. You think a little more is going to make a difference? Rolleyes

Shit, I need to pick up the pace on finishing Witcher 3.

I gave up on this. Everytime I came back to finish it, I'd get sidetracked yet again by the other content. I just can't leave that ? alone. I _HAVE_ to see what it is. Oh, it's a mob that several levels higher and will take me 30 minutes to kill? Let's do this. Suddenly I'm burned out again.

I've finished the game at least three times, expansions included (the last time, I think I finally got the best outcome), and every time I try to avoid the side activities, I just get sucked into them. Best game ever made.

Oh it's definitely a great game, and I love it, about 120? hours in so far, pretty much done with the main content and all the side missions I could find, plus fist fights, horse racing, and all the quest Gwent battles. I'm getting ready to go on to the expansions, just need to sit down and get back to it; I've been fiddling around with Division 2 still, waiting for the new patch in June, and playing a little bit of WH40K Martyr/Prophet.

I've largely avoided looking at Witcher 3 resources online, but I'm almost to the point of 'cheating' to look up where to get the Gwent cards I'm missing, because I have been ALL OVER, and still don't have them all. Probably my biggest gripe with the game, Gwent stuff is so scattered randomly that you can't get all the cards for all sets in a timely fashion, not counting mods or guides.

Other minor issue: I'm way overleveled now, it seems like the main game expects you to be level 26-30ish by the end, and I'm already like level 35, so I'm annihilating these Wild Hunt jokers every time I encounter them. Not too big of a deal, I am enjoying the story, but any combat difficulty is long gone.


Turn on level scaling. It makes it so all creatures are at LEAST your level when you fight them.

These used to be pretty cool games back in the day., I wonder how it holds up ....?

When I was a kid, these were the end-all, be-alls, partially because of their exclusivity. We all knew MK, and where to find it. Finding Samurai Showdown was much harder, so it became a myth. The rumors were about how much bloodier and more graphic the disembowling was.

For a kid, though, when you finally found it, it didn't live up to it. The graphics weren't as real, the violence felt less impactful, there were no "fatalities," and getting to the gore wasn't something you'd figure out with a buck or two.
Kids, though, are dumb.

I just wanted to play a cool fighting game with unique characters and cool moves. I guess I was somehow strange as a kid.
