I know a lot of people are angry he stepped down, dealing with "freedom" and such.
However, he was the public face of the company, as every CEO is. He can say he was speaking for himself, not the company, but when you're CEO, that's never true. You're always that CEO, especially when you're posting on a twitter profile in which your profile says you're CEO, and the bulk of your posts are related to your job.
Part of the responsibility that comes with that job, and the salary, is not damaging the company. As soon as you say something heavily controversial, particularly one about removing rights and putting a bounty on the heads of many of your employees and consumers, you've stepped beyond your unofficial duties as CEO, potentially violated your fiduciary duties, and have moved into a space where you're now a distraction and no longer capable of doing your job of leading.
People weirdly downplay the detriment of being a distraction. Why is Cam Newton currently unemployed? He's not even putting out controversial opinions, he's just a distraction. Why did Jamie Tartt find it so hard to find a new job despite being one of the best premier league players? Because he was a distraction.
No one wants to deal with a distraction, so distractions get shown the door.

Whats even the point of having a job if you can't sexually harass the female employees or at the very least just treat them like shit? Also why can't I get drunk at work and smoke at my desk?
It's timing. You were born 80 years too late.

Just a word to developers. Investigate publishers, contracts and store fronts. If your game is good it will sell no matter what.
I have a whole bunch of games installed, storefront immaterial.

There was a guy on Twitch Uber_Nerd who use to be very open to conversations about the game but recently has joined the SC fan boi club.

Man, I'd love to live there.

I like sex and contrarily to most people have no cultural taboos about it anymore ( literally, about 15 years ago I purged them for what they are, bullshit ), but be real mate ok?
Excuse me? Did you even watch the video? I don't care about your sexuality, nor do I care about porn in this context. I care about the sanitation of games (and other media) for the sake of political correctness. Which is why I have used hyperbole, it's effective at getting my point across. We are literally fighting hordes from hell, but sex and nudity is somehow taboo. Not only that, it's apparently taboo for female 3d models to be attractive, yet it's not an issue for male 3d models. If you don't think that is a problem, I guess that's fine, but I think self-censorship in books, films, movies, art, yes and even games, for whatever reason, is bullshit.

I played it once I got it on sale about a month after release. I enjoyed it a lot and didn't have very many bugs, no showstoppers. Yeah, it was released too early, but really, you're not gonna find a lot of those bugs without a widespread player base of a full release, so it's a compromise in a game that big and complicated. Patience and not being a pre-order beta person is the key to enjoyment.
