[Opinion] Brad Glasgow: "The coverage of @WarhorseStudios #KingdomComeDeliverance has been awful, but that's something everyone knew would happen. I was considering covering it, but I don't think that's needed. Sales are strong. Print gaming media is impotent."
[Opinion] Plebcomics: "ceasing a discussion about a thing that makes them uncomfortable, either because it threatens their social status or they flat out cant argue against it, is just another way for them to exert control--THEY have to be in control of things"
Saltasaurus: "You realise most people don't give a shit about the political standing of game devs, especially with the GamerGate shit, right? If they make a good game, it's going to be supported. Simple as that."
[TWITTER BULLSHIT] Mombot on "sexy video game characters don't chose to dress like that": "Video game characters can't make choices, so making them do things is a violation of their free will... which they don't have."
A bit old, but the New York Times recognizes that video games and mass shootings are unrelated. Irrespective of your opinions on the article in whole, or the NYT as a journalist outlet, it's good to see this.
[Drama] Steve Boxer / Green Man Gaming - "Fan Backlash after Eurogamer's Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review" ("Others have called out whether Vavra’s admittedly less than savoury views – support for GamerGate, which acted as a precursor for the rise of the “alt-right” ")
[Opinion] Mark Kern: "The bullying of gamers continues. It does not matter if the employee shares their bosses views, they are going to get “grabbed by the lapels” and grilled. What horrific, violent intent against strangers. Sociopathic."
[Opinion] Loni Reeder: "There’s no place for a #MeMe agenda in ANY industry. Sad to see Wu/cohorts demean themselves in a pitiful display for attention. Nothing good comes from such conduct. Hopefully the Pro Indie Dev people learned from the #Bushnell debacle & won’t get played as the #GDC was."
Kingdom Come: Deliverance just reached a peak of 96K concurrent players on Steam today. This is even more than The Witcher 3. I can think of no greater evidence that appeasing to SJW bullies to censor your opinion or visions for your game is pointless. They're not the ones buying video games.
[Opinion] cliffski/Cliff Harris on Twitter: "So apparently people are angry about proindiedev having too many white male developers on it, and think I should 'pull out'. To save you the trouble of reading further... you can fuck right off..."
letsplayvideogames.com review: "Kingdom Come continue to present a specific image that fits in line with cultural expectations born of racism", proceed to give it 4/10, tanking its metacritics score by 0,2 alone and getting it almost to yellow number.
UPDATE: YouTube restored Tim Pool's video & removed guideline strike. "Unfortunately the video was essentially killed by the removal and likely won't see any new shares or views, meanwhile the fake news persists."
[Gaming] Will Usher - "Politician Proposes Bill To Add Warning Label To Games With Premium Loot Boxes" (thoughts, KiA? I know we hate loot boxes, but is government intervention in video games a good thing?)
[Gaming] Yasuyoki Oda on SNK Heroines sexy costumes - "The development team was very careful about that, but we heard a lot of requests from fans all over the world to “make it sexier!” I think the final product reflects that."
[Opinion] Mark Kern: "Focus on better tools, smaller teams, less feature creep and scope and lots of good support and ongoing content...Give the gamers what they want, they are screaming at you but you (big pubs) can’t hear them. They want deep gameplay, content and no nickel and dime."
[SocJus] Thomas Morgan for Eurogamer - "It would be remiss of us not point out the controversy surrounding this title based on the attitudes of Daniel Vávra, the lead developer, whose views speak for themselves in both his social media and this Kotaku interview..."
[SocJus] Andrew Middlemas (author of a libelous readers letter published by Metro last week that directly accused Daniel Vavra of racism and sexism and called for a boycott of KCD) has written an OP-ed now on 'The dark side of the gaming community'... (gamedrops)
Youtube has removed and censored Tim Pool's video calling out the media for yet again falling for another 4Chan Hoax [4Chan claiming that the Florida shooter was part of a WS group]. In addition, YouTube has given Tim Pool a "strike".
