Of course there is corruption in the west but the PRC is on a whole different level, Corruption is mostly tolerated and anti corruption laws are only enforced during these purges when they want to get rid of political rivals or people who are disloyal.
This is just a part of Xi continuing to solidify his position as dictator for life.

It's a Polygon article obviously they're going to construe anything that isn't part of their groupthink as racist and bigoted. Never mind the fact that the Japanese are probably the most xenophobic people on the planet. Never mind that every country has its own organized crime - the Yakuza as it applies to Gibson's work. This just the typical snowflake whinging. Just another assault on white men who aren't white guilty liberal extremists. It's clear they've never actually read anything by Gibson or Stephenson. Their works are the very opposite of what the idiot author is contending.


Japan is certainly more xenophobic than the west, But all non-western nations are more conservative and xenophobic.
After living in Japan for several years though I really don't think it qualifies as "The most" xenophobic. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be hard to find a country that was much worse.
They love western culture for the most part, If you're Chinese or Korean you'll probably have more problems. North Korean ICBMS and CCP threats of war aren't helping much.

This is a terrible article though, I agree with you its obvious they've never read any William Gibson.
The author also assumes that because cyberpunk depicts a future with an Asian cultural influence that its somehow promoting a "fear" of Asians which is an insane takeaway. They're also cherry picking the shit out of history and games, leaving out a whole bunch of inconvenient points that mess with their conspiracy theory.

Some of these polygon articles are a weird sort of racist hipsterism. Where the authors seem to seek out something currently popular in culture and try to lay claim over it based on their ancestry, regardless of if they were actually raised in that culture or contributed to it in any way or not. Its like they think it gives them some kind of power.

Those damn Communists and their big money-grubbing corporations! ... wait...

Lol I get what you're saying but also I think his argument is specifically that its not a big money-grubbing corporation but an arm of the Communist party. Since its run by communist party members and is beholden to their imperalist goals.

Please be in the spirit of Prey and Dishonored, if not literally of one of those franchises.

Deathloop looks very Dishonoured in terms of game play.

I still need to finish wasteland 2, But it's just so janky.
Wasteland 3 looks like an incredible jump in quality though.

Seems like the CCP will have a monopoly over the games industry in a few years.
Its going to become harder and harder to fight back against their censorship and they'll have a direct line to exercise their soft power by propagandizing to kids.

Twitters labels are fine except they only ever apply them to right wing Americans.
For example the CCP accounts can post the most outrageous bullshit right up to denial of genocide and covid conspiracies but Twitter won't label any of them.

Goodness. Considering all that "feedback from gamers" perhaps they should ban it from the GOG store too.

Taiwan has been earmarked by the communist party for invasion in the next 5 years. They openly state it.
The most democratic and progressive nation in Asia with a population the size of Australia and our government's and corperations won't recognise its existence.
So much for all our values.

I didn't know that the word blind was considered a derogatory slur. When did that happen? What's the word we're supposed to use now?

You can't organize people by "merit." Hell, it's true in video games. In Jagged Alliance you often take the shittier merc because he has the one skill you think you need and don't have.

Yea because you're looking for that skill and he has merit in it.

Or maybe that high merit merc doesn't get along with a merc you already have.

I've also been involved in a lot of hiring and I think its reasonable not to hire people because of toxic personalities, I've rejected plenty.
But I'd say people skills (depending on the job) are a form of merit too.

I think what the others are saying when they criticise "diversity" is that you shouldn't be hiring people based on things like race, religion or sexual preference, unless it's relevant to the work.

My wife worked in one of amazons warehouses (in japan) and they're treated like prisoners, metal detectors, constant surveillance and you're being timed to make sure you're keeping up a minimum pace, you even have to check your lunch in at a security station. The company has zero trust in its staff. Not surprised they treat the drivers this way too.
