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.

Well written, but beware a shit storm may just be about to flood you.

In any case...it is unfortunately that these people cannot resist the urge to post about everything on social media. I'm glad I'm too old to be caught up in this kind of foolishness. I put my foot in my mouth enough in my personal life that I really don't need to showcase myself having my foot down my throat for the world to see.

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.

Dammit! I too wanted my time of ass slapping, intimidating and generally treating women like shit...

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.

That's odd. I can name a bunch of good games that never sold or never sold enough to make back up their development costs.

Pretty sure that's why Epic is only bankrolling "sure thing" games that have an established history and and/or publishers and developers with big enough names to make a splash.

Anyway...the main thing is that no, your game will not sell "no matter what" if it is good. You need to market and get your name out there. Sadly that is the nature of the current games market. You can, of course, bank on the fact that your game generates its own community and following and do nothing...but that won't guarantee a decent sales return on your development investment.

Side note...all those games that did well on Epic store seemed to have done even better on Steam...and I don't see that changing.

Great thanks for reminding me that I still have Control to finish along with Mad Max and several dozens of other games in my backlog that I have yet to install.

Well I suppose its lucky for me that they have a shelf life so I can throw out the ones with expired dates. Now if I can just locate those expiration date stickers... Wacky

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.

I have to wonder how does your confidence in this "game" increase with time as opposed to to dwindling away to nothing? I mean...there is nothing to indicate that even Squadron 42 will be released in any kind of reasonable time frame much less a fully persistent universe of which there is exactly 1 solar system and it is not yet complete. 9 years in...no game Shocked

What the actual fuck is this shit? People are eating that up as if it is actual progress in the game and they are close to going gold.

What do you mean you've missed this? Are you all only here for videos of Chris and Sandy and not for an actual video game that's taking close to 11 years to build???

What is wrong with you people????

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 think it is more about not wanting your female players to feel like they are all playing bombshell bimbos and that's the only choice they have. Ideally, you could have the option to change body types to something more titillating but that's not really a priority for the game I don't think.

Sometimes we as males don't really think about how female representation in games may affect the female players or potential players wanting to get into them. That is not to say that I don't love debauchery as much as or more than the next guy...but I'm pretty happy to have female characters in games that are semi-realistic too.

Would a rogue or barbarian female really have an ultra voluptuous body and look? I dunno. The sorceress...maybe...she's not in a physically demanding profession.

That's interesting because more allegations of rape and abuse are true than not. Also...what does a few guys on a game forum have to say in the life and career of a game designer? We can't do shit to influence this one way or another.

The thing is that he was banned before from conventions...that is a fact. Why were those actions taken? None of us have a say in what happens to him...so why jump in on his side with all the evidence he has stacked against him? For that matter why are these women making up all this shit against him anyway?

In my example above...Vic Mignogna had a long history of getting handsy with fans at conventions. He was asked to stop it multiple times but nobody wanted to be the person that brought down such a big VA. Until it got to the point where it could not be ignored anymore. Sometimes people in high positions do bad shit. Sometimes there is no conspiracy. Now if he can prove that there was one, I'll be the first to admit I was wrong. Until then though...I am not a judge...I have no obligation to be "fair" according to the standards of Quinn.

If I remember right, he was banned from conventions. That is a big tell right there. Are we saying that the convention owners were in on it?

You know who else got away with inappropriate behavior for a long time? Vic Mignogna. The man for years went too far with fans and it was documented time after time and he was asked to stop and he never did. Then when he got fired from Funimation and from RWBY he too turned around and sued and got nowhere. And had to pay for the legal fees of those he was trying to sue.

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.
You'd think that wouldn't have to be repeated on a site where most are over 40. But apparently it can't be repeated enough.


Got to get my copy BEFORE they are all gone!!!! Wreck
