So the - money - pressure finally got to Snyder and the Redskins are no more - or shortly will be. Saw a great comment where someone said they should change the name to reflect the reality of Washington DC and call themselves The Washington Grifters. "Redskins" always seemed to be more offensive than it was. I suppose its all in how you say it or take it. Poll after poll over the years showed most Natives really didn't care. If they were called the Whiteskins I wouldn't really care either. I'd just find it an immensely odd name for a sports team.
Someone posted this the other day: "Washington Redtails." A perfect mascot for the moment, and a kickass design with that P-51C.

As for outsourcing their IPs, Arkane was making a HL2 episode which was cancelled too and the only motive I can see behind this is that Valve was ashamed that another company would have made a good game with their IP while they themselves couldn't. So they stopped it and kept sitting on their Steam monopoly! I bet without the Epic Store they wouldn't have finished HL: Alyx...

Just remember, Japan is the country with the lowest birth-rates of ALL western developed nations. I am sure showing a cybernetic dingus would completely devastate those poor untainted souls.
Post WW2, the US somehow successfully instilled sex-shaming and weird Puritan-ish values in Japan. It's a tragedy. The nation has not recovered at all from that, and statistically is unlikely to, before their population dips too low to be sustainable as a country.
