6 foot tall bald caucasian should be perfect for blending into the crowd hah

Not only that... he has a fricken bar code tattooed on the back of his head, clear as day too. For a genetically engineered world class Assassin, and a game all about blending in, they really didnt think through his whole "look", did they?

They probably did, and then arrived at the conclusion that the average looking joe doesn't make for a compelling video game main character.

As far as I know, she's guilty of the terrible crime of reminding people that gender is a biological reality and not merely some social construct. Yes, burn her at the stake. Our society is crazier than ever, and the internet mob - those venomous people allegedly protecting tolerance and humanity - is the ugliest phenomena of the times.

i have no sympathy for the cheat sellers, but why would they be bothered by Activision's terms of service? As far as these are binding, don't they only relate to Activision customers?

TenNapel could be wiser, humbler and more humane in his criticism of others. No doubt about that. But he's also motivated from seeing some obviously dark sides to the phenomena discussed - if you can't see any you are blinder than him. BLM, for example, is a movement ripe with racism. Farrakhan is a hero of many of the people swearing by BLM (sorry for any generalizations, I'm sure there are many there who aren't fans), and he is an unabashed antisemite who operates freely on social media. People everywhere need to de-escalate themselves and stop demonizing other people - whether they are cops, black, white, christian or homosexual.

Didn't personally like Kingdoms of Amalur and it definitely didn't reach the knees of Skyrim's success, but it still sold 1.2 million copies in its first months, so unless most of these buyers hated it, they may have some audience.

Yep, most Souls-like boss battles are bad, especially when you have to fight them exactly like the developers intended. I also hate that, for some reason not exactly clear to me, you can't jump immediately back into battle with a "retry?" option, instead wasting your time on re-spawning a way back.

No one here is judging anyone.
Every person who has lost their job or been temporarily furloughed HAS APOLOGIZED for what they did.

I know, I was talking about social media, not about the below comments. Go through twitter and you'll encounter the toxic judgements soon enough, and a pile of them.

And when I say judgmental, it's not about deciding whether someone did or didn't do something. It's about the moral arrogance on show.

yea, and I also want to know why these people do go to HR and take up their grievances there instead of on twitter. Seems to me they just want the publicity.

HR exists to protect the company, not the employees.

Precisely. The police and the courts are where one goes to seek justice and the system, while imperfect is fundamentally fair because both sides bring their evidence. That's the action people took before social media. All soc-med did was bypass the legal process by petitioning any grievances before a public opinion court with little to no real evidence. That's not justice. That's mob rule, and mob rule is archaic.

I would also like to point out that Ismail's Twitter announcement clearly shows he didn't want the "hundreds of talented, passionate people striving to build an experience for you" to be "associated with this." Meaning, regardless of whether or not he did it, as he states, "The lives of my family and my own are shattered." He will forever be marred in the industry, and all because of a Twitter post.

Agreed. This social media frenzy is troubling, especially the judgmental tone of so many. "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone "...

No. Doesn't even really matter what you followed it up with... nobody is suggesting art be rejected.
A call for more diversity, better characters, informed writing, etc. etc. is not a call to reject art... it's just advocating for improvements.

I wasn't talking about rejection of Art with a capital A, good job on reading and quoting a stub of a sentence. I was talking about pre-judging specific art based on the social identity of the writer: "well, he's a black suburban guy, so his writing on white farm people must suck and be full of shallow stereotypes". On the other hand, of course, it is important for authors to be self aware and humble, and know their limitations.

Nah, I got what you meant... no rejection of lowercase art either. No rejection.

Good. So we're in agreement that today's polarizing discourse (represented by hate speech on one hand and cancel culture on the other) is bad.

"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."

It needs to be emphasized that it is problematic to take this too far. Do we now reject all art if its subject is from a different social sphere than the artist's? Is the work of an average writer writing on his cultural group necessarily more authentic than the work of a brilliant, sensitive outsider? Do we now tell poor authors that they are not allowed to write on rich people and vice versa, as they have no idea what they're talking about?

Inclusivity and diversity are good attitudes to have, but implementations of these kinds of ideas in organizations tend to focus on the structural, codified part and lead to design by committee. Then, instead of letting good artists lead the creative vision, it is shaped by compatibility with regulations.

If you can't accept the term Toxic Femininity then you can't accept Toxic Masculinity as well. What you can say in defense of the popular (to the point of caricature?) use of Toxic Masculinity is that you believe it has much more of an effect on our society because Men are in a majority/leader position in wide domains of politics, entertainment, tech etc.

Incels and their mysogyny doing what incels do when they figure out the cute girl is a lesbian.
You'd think they'd be used to it because it's the same thing that happens to them irl.

A straw-man argument. Most of the user reviews on Metacritic are clearly not about gender issues but critical of the plot for very different reasons.

Edit: Here's a representative snippet from user AZRogue's review: "this game continues the recent fad of subverting our expectations by failing to give fans those elements that made their art so attractive in the first place while wallowing in the negativity they see in the world, like a teenager who first encounters goth and thinks they've had an epiphany."

I get the feeling you didn't really check the balance of twitter's policy enforcement, just jumped on an opportunity to bash the other side. If there's any body objectively collecting and analyzing the relevant data, I'd be happy to know about it, because I'm tired of partisan demagogy.

Edit: This in response to RedEye9's last comment: "Twitter removes comments equally from both the left and the right.
Difference being the left sucks it up while the right cries like a beatch.
You only need look at the orange toddler for proof of that

I don't know this woman and am not familiar with her tweets, but I have seen promotion of hate and calls for violence come both from left and right wing extremists. I wonder if Twitter's standards for abuse are the same for both.

"Merit" doesn't really exist. How do you define it? What one person feels merits reward another will disagree. Is merit what has been achieved thus far? Is it potential?

If you've ever hired someone, you know "merit" is tricky because people aren't a single number.

And "merit" enforces status quo, not change.

"Merit doesn't exist": What a sad, sad way of looking at human beings. I suppose that's one of the reasons people like to fall back on their tribal identity so much - after all, as individuals they are worth nothing to those of us who only see them through their socio-political affiliations.

"Merit is tricky because people aren't a single number": So what you're saying, in effect, is that skin color is objective and simple, while merit is subjective and multi faceted, and that's why we should base our support of people on skin color and not merit. This is pure madness.

Support for an individual or business should be based on merit and need, not on ethnicity, skin color, gender or any other parameter of identity politics. If it is true that because of societal imbalances more black skinned game developers are in need of support than non-black-skinned developers, then a correct set-up of the fund's parameters for inclusion will favor them any way. This is going down the wrong path. While it is maybe not racist by itself, it teaches people to think like racists.

If you want a modern Wizardry game, look up Legend of Grimrock 1 & 2. They are basically as close as you'll find and both fantastic games.
The Grimrocks would actually be Dungeon-Master descendants and not Wizardry ones, as they are real time games (vs Wizardry's turn-based pace), making the sub-genres quite different. Newer games with more similarity to Wizardry include Operencia: The Stolen Sun, Bard's Tale IV and Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar.
