Just highlighting that this is so out of the norm for the franchise.

Also laughable that an assassin game has someone that literally can’t blend in a crowd being an assassin as they are the only black person in Japan.

I would love to play an awesome afro samurai game which is loosely based on Yasuke but that aint assassins creed.

He supported it. It didn’t happen. Still supports it and regulation. Not happening anytime soon. Makes own AI that isn’t woke as a countermeasure.

Imagine you said to your boss. I'll work for free for the next 10 years. If I 2x the company's value I get 1% of the growth. If I don't then I get paid $0. I keep getting paid 1% of each 2x of the current value until it at least 10x.

Boss says "Yeah lets do it".

You then more than 10x the company but then the boss says "Err you know you forgot to put a full stop at the end right? Sorry you get nothing."

Then you go put that full stop back into the contract and your boss says "Well buddy, since the company is more than 10x in worth now, that 1% is a lot of money mate. Sorry don't think you should get it now. How about a nice watch and a holiday instead?"

This is literally the situation now. 80% of shareholders excluding Musk voted in favor of the pay package back in 2018.

If you'd be pissed if someone did that to you then why do you think its ok to do it to someone else?

This is my game. Nothing else comes close to the intensity required to make your city survive.

I’ve just finished all scenarios in survivor mode with all objectives completed and deathless.
I don’t ever do that shit in other games and usually just play “normal” mode but for this….its soo good

Also only game I’d ever do a deluxe pre-order.

Love that he thinks actual reviews are bombs. Battle net is a petting zoo that doesn’t allow reviews and now that its on steam they can’t pretend OW2 is liked anymore.

Less review bomb and more reality check.

We have 8 billion and that's already billions over capacity. And what do we have in less than 2 centuries of industrialization - particularly in the last several decades - a new gilded age with a dying and unaffordable planet for most. What made Mozart - and any other genius - special is that they're rare. A 1000 of them becomes, 'Enh, another Mozart? Whatever.'

Less people is a good thing. It was the Black Death that gave rise to the first middle-class. More people = life is cheap and a race to the bottom out of desperation. Just look at global migration today, and it's only going to get worse. It means war and eventually a Malthusian crisis. Infinite growth is not only bullshit, it's stupid because it's unsustainable.

We are not even breakeven anymore. Population collapse is a real thing. Look at Japan closing 400
primary schools a year because of not enough children. Korea is even worse. Most developed countries are below replacement rate of 2.1 children per family and Korea is around 0.7 and could half population in a few decades.

When we have a demographic where the majority of population is retired and the youth are busy paying for it that will be a distopian nightmare.

Government is not the best judge of conspiracies. Will tend to pressure tech companies to call anything against themselves as conspiracy. Most might be but not all.
Let people argue and debate each other instead.

They already get an entire month of the year and endless support from every major corporation and rainbow flags everywhere. Obviously not enough and desperately need a dedicated shelf on twitch too otherwise they will be labelled anti LGBT soon.

Ridiculous things like child poverty, veterans or i dunno CANCER get just a day but Pride somehow went from a day to an entire month. I’d prefer a dedicated Twitch shelf for those instead but I guess the squeaky wheel gets the oil.

So patient zero of covid happens to be a lead researcher at wuhan coronavirus lab who was doing gain of function research with US grant money and we still have no “direct evidence” it started in the lab??

If that isn’t a weak attempt at covering ass then i don’t know what is.

Always open for a new RTS game so fingers crossed this doesn't suck.

Thematically though kinda looks weird to have human squads walking around in bright daylight with tanks and jeeps shooting in the open.

In my mind the AI would have complete battlefield advantage and overwhelming forces and the majority of combat would be guerrilla warfare at night.
From the clips of gameplay it shows a few grunts and 3 tanks shooting a couple of mechs and robots. Looks off brand.from the little I've seen.

You do know that a core tenant of fascism is forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism and does not support free speech.

Looks like twitter is open for all types of people to freely and openly communicate their thoughts and opinions. Quite Anti Facist to be honest.

How bout accepting the circumstances of your own birth and playing with the cards you got? You know about body dysmorphia right? Millions of children suffer from it, for various reason, however they are not all rushed through irreversible surgery because of it before they are even of the age of consent.

Only a very few people out of a thousand are born with true gender dysmorphia. Yet the number of children who identify as trans (or any of a myriad of new genders we have invented) is shooting up exponentially. How many of those people will regret their irreversible surgeries once they come of age and figure out that maybe just, maybe they were just typical depressed teenagers who wanted to be accepted as something brave, new and wonderful?

The above represents my views, it has nothing to do with Rowling. But I believe that adults should be responsible for their own actions, and more importantly should be responsible for their children. If my teenage child came out as trans, I would tell him or her, go for it. Dress like a girl (or a boy) wear make up, go the whole nine yards if you will. But I'm not gonna let you mutilate your genitals unless you are 100% sure that this is what you want to do. And you can't be sure if you are still a child. I wouldn't be a responsible parent otherwise. Once you hit 18, and you still feel like that, well go right ahead.
Very well said!

You must not have dug deep, cause it's been all over her Twitter for ages.

Confusing sex ( assigned at birth according to outward appearances, aka genitalia ) and gender ( mental identity and also denoted by a different brain structure and scan readings, more alike the other gender, scientifically proven that one, neat huh? ).

They are TRULY the other gender, they've always been, mentally, since birth. That's the whole point of being trans. It has always been like that since the start ( from the 1st trans person eons ago ), it hasn't changed. But people who still confuse sex and gender ( or argue in bad faith based on a wrong definition of gender ) argue otherwise.


Ohh fair enough I was thinking of sex then instead of gender. If there was an argument about biology that is silly but if they are talking about mental image of oneself, which I mentioned earlier, there is nothing wrong with that.

Re-reading JK Rowling controversy actually she was talking about sex the whole time so the gender thing was me.

One of her exact quotes which started the whole thing was:

"If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth."

Which part of this is transphobic?

I completely agree and the only reason people like Beamer take issue with your stance is that the ideological opinions these reviewers insert into their reviews only ever go one way. They match up with Beamer's views attacking JK Rowling--so he's perfectly fine with them.

Just imagine if a majority of the reviewers inserted a paragraph or two defending JK Rowling and criticizing gender ideology--think of how apocalyptic the response would be then. It would never happen, because the gaming industry in general and gaming journalism in particular is completely dominated by those whose thinking on these issues only goes that one, particular way--and if someone should happen to deviate from that one particular way, they will be canceled/lose their job in short order. (No one ever gets canceled or loses their job for being pro gender ideology.)

I'd argue that JK Rowling is not in fact transphobic, that her views are actually mainstream and not bigoted at all--but every time I make that point in any detail ... my posts get deleted here.

Because, like I said:

This debate is only allowed to ever go one way.

One way is accepting people for the circumstances of their birth. The other is rejecting.

You so desperately want us to tolerate her, and assuredly your, intolerance. I won't. Hate what you want, but you'll be judged for it

Wait at what point did Rowling reject people for the circumstances of their birth? Trans used to be people being born in the wrong body and mentally identify as the other gender. I haven't found anything she said to go against that.
The weird thing now is that some people are saying Trans people aren't born in the wrong body. They are truly the other gender and if you don't agree then you are a bigot. I think she is arguing that is wrong.

If you take it to the extreme can't a white man just say they are truly a black woman and call you a bigot if you don't agree? Sounds silly to that extent.

Again if she actually said something transphobic please call it out as I still can't seem to find any actual evidence.

Can Romero release a game without people here mentioning Daikatana ads?


Or do another retrospective deep dive into how he co-created DOOM and become grandfather of FPS?

I appreciate your perspective on wanting to keep personal opinions out of reviews. However, it seems somewhat hypocritical to advocate for J.K. Rowling's right to express her opinions while also expressing frustration towards the reviewer for doing the same. After all, the reviewer, just like J.K. Rowling, is entitled to their own opinions and the freedom to express them.
It's a game review, not an oped on a person who wrote the books the game is based on.
While I understand your concern, it is important to note that game reviews are subjective by nature and reflect the personal experiences and opinions of the reviewer. Allowing reviewers to take into account the IP owner's opinions and including that information in their reviews is a valuable aspect of the review process. Ultimately, purchasing decisions are a form of advocacy and these reviews provide valuable information to potential buyers who may share similar beliefs. I believe in the rights of reviewers to express their opinions and believe it is their subjective perspective that makes game reviews valuable.

But there is nothing anti trans about the game itself or what the game devs said. Again more googling ( denofgeek - hogwarts-legacy-controversy ) and the worst I could find was that the devs were working closely with Wizarding World to make the game authentic. Doesn't even say JK Rowling had any direct contact with devs.

So why are these activist reviewers wasting so much of the readers time on rants instead of reviews when the whole substance of it is because the author of the source material isn't to their liking. Its about as far removed from the game and its development as possible while still being related.
