Hope they buy Take 2 or Ubisoft. Really go in for the kill.

Curbing birth rates would do wonders for Africa as it has done for Eurasia and the Americas. It's easier to build infrastructure, educate people, and grow the economy in a sustainable way when you don't have rapid growth. Societies with a large portion of the population under 14 (every country before the industrial revolution) have always been unstable ones prone to poverty, conflict, misogyny, and authoritarian governments. So while curbing African birth rates would do little to help climate change it would do everything to help Africa.
Covenant was supposed to be Noomie Rapeface and Fassbender going on a space adventure
Right because that hasn’t been the entire site over the past year, but somehow I’m the only one you’re getting on about it. Used Android for a good ten years and I’d go back to it if I had to. It’s got a lot of great features. But with both operating systems being so similar these days, Android distinguishes itself by hosting the premier mobile gaming experience and it’s not particularly closeSorry you feel the need to mouth off about fanboys specifically to me and not the multitude of posts made in the past 8 hours you could have had a go at.
No offense, but in the comments to your tweet countless people are cheering you how you "trolled" or "owned" those devs, and you even replied to one of those guys that you were blocked by one of the devs, a Senior Engine Programmer from id software: This must have been terribly confusing to you, when you just wanted to ask harmless questions.

I just don't think you care about what is deontolgy and proper ethics as a journalist. It's really sad.I agree with what you said, ideally you should balance your article with many other opinions from various sources in the industry. It shouldn't be mainly reduced to Microsoft's executives opinion on the matter.
And no one denied that you are doing your evangelical work professionally, but you can post twitter message with limited possibility of reply, to avoid aggregating Greenberg's hooligans.
Of course an Xbot is gonna say that. LOL. Hey everyone come check out the thread I made about how great devs think the ps5 is. (15 naughty dog Twitter handles populate the OP)
EDIT: Imprudent post, likely. Kind of silly to use a super biased source, though.
Sometimes I wonder if manufacturers employ people to advertise their consoles on here.
I think this would be ok if they just hypersexualized both men and women equally. I am pro hyper sexualization of both genders, I don't really understand all these puritanical attitudes towards sex and sexuality when you are playing games where you murder 100s of people.
well that's too bad but you know the old argument Sex Sells !
Kim Kardashian and WAP did this.
Whatever you do, DON'T go to Japan's red light district, OP.
That thread when there's nothing left to be outraged over so you go in reverse.
There's really no need to be so obtuse about it. If you own the game who cares where you get the ROM of it from. Why should you spend hundreds of pounds to create your own ROM dump when the first result on Google lets you download a file which is to one that would have otherwise created. No one should feel bad or guilty about that.
Thank you for that. I do think he may suffer from something like Aspberger, highly intelligent but socially awkward.
I’d wager in Resetera it does mean defending tankies since you’re not responding to an audience of racists and conservatives here. The US democracy and government is fucked but it’s not anywhere as fucked as China. At least we have a chance to change it in a few weeks. Also don’t forget that it’s the wealthy Chinese people’s demand for exotic meat that caused the Covid-19 outbreak and non transparency and secrecy of the Chinese government that resulted in it spreading everywhere. So while a vast majority of people in China are victims just like the rest of us, the Chinese ruling class is guilty and should be hated.
What country are you from? Just kidding.
I’m sorry but currently for a lot of indies launching on the switch is their actual “launch”.
Is pretty funny how a lot of people are like "yeah Sony should buy them" yet when you put any opinion of a developer making an exclusive game with either Nintendo/Microsoft or being brought by them they go "why would you want to punish people without X console or PC" like it's so obvious it's rooted in fanboyism for Sony
Honestly, for anyone with half a functional brain, they're within a stone's throw of each other. Also, note that I never said that PC gaming is as simple as console gaming, but it's certainly not the rocket science a lot of posts in this thread will have you believe.
Again, with this narrative that MS bought a whole publisher because Sony invested in three temporary exclusives. You really think that a business would shell out 7.5 billions for this nonsense...Really? MS pulls the worst “dickish" move in an eternity and Sony is still responsible somehow? Truly fascinating when the masks are off... At least the anti-consumers mantra that the usual suspects have been singing will no longer pollute the pages of the forum.
Y’all wanted to keep talking mad shit about Xbox having no games this is what you get
This is my favorite house to deliver milk to! Dave Chapelle is a genius.
Sticks & Stones was a great special. Look forward to more from Chapelle.
Awesome. Watched all of his Netflix specials and love them to bits.
I thought it was a good acceptance speech and I suggest people watch it. Dave does not translate well into text on a page.
Lol. He's allowed.
I enjoyed the specials. Lol at that clip
Then it's a good thing it wasn't up for an award for humanitarian of the year. But for comedy. GOAT
Mario 64 and Goldeneye were worth the $70 Ps5 games are not
I have softmoded Switch.
I can't believe anything that Dusk Gollen says about Playstation. he always lies nowadays. The RE8 thing is a crime, what he said became news everywhere literally going against all the comments we have from actual developers who used the ps5 saying how great it is.
From what I have heard if Xbox looses traction (sales/membership) this generation then Microsoft may kill Xbox (possibly spin it off in a standalone company with no support from Microsoft). Fighting Sony is taking a monetary toll on terms of R&D, advertising and acquisitions with little results in the long term. If Xbox is harder for third parties to develop for then this will end up as a nail in the coffin.
Era members in Hogwarts Legacy thread- "Rowling may be a TERF, but I won't punish the devs. Day 1 buy for me!" Era members in this thread- "You don't get it. It's about ethics in journalism! Oh she's not a journalist? Well then it's about ethics in influencer-land! You expect me to compromise with my morals and be okay with this? This is anti-consumer. I will write pages of comments about this SeRiOuS issue in this thread."
See this is why you dont see many people bring up trophies/achievements too often on this site. You have assholes like this that just can't help themselves and need to let everyone know how much they hate what other people enjoy and it shouldn't exist. If you had posted this during "normal business hours" half of this thread would be posts like this
Have they, or is it just the internet giving a minority of people a louder voice than they had before?
Some people seem to really not understand that the Cyberpunk genre is about a dystopian future where extreme technological progress leads to extreme social regression. It's a dark fantasy world. A dirty grimy future where morality and ethics are thrown out the window. It's not supposed to be politically correct and it would be a shame if CDPR weaseled out on this aspect. That would ruin the setting. Sure, perhaps CDPR won't do the themes any justice by keeping it shallow, , but perhaps we shouldn't dismiss the whole thing before even playing it.
Depiction != endorsement. God damnit, it's becoming entirely impossible to make dystopia / satire, these days. Not because "we can't say anything", but because audiences have become completely tone-deaf.
Correct. It's not a great thing. Nothing about this setting is a great thing. It's things that could have been great but went in a not great direction instead. It's supposed to be scummy and it's supposed to be uncomfortable. If you don't like that, perfectly reasonable, cyberpunk dystopian fiction isn't for you. And that's a valid discussion to make, talking about why you don't enjoy these kinds of works. But presenting this as if it's not saying something or adding to the setting when it clearly is just seems off to me. Lot of people in this thread just seem to want to hate this game before playing it so they've created some weird double standard where other cyperpunk stories are allowed to do the exact same thing this one is, but when this one does it clearly it's not as good because it's this game doing it. Sleazy uncomfortable sexualization being used to sell things is part of the setting. That's all there is to it.
This is how I feel also.
It does seem like they're objectifying both men and women more or less equally based on the replies in this thread, so yeah. Classic trope of the genre combined with "Depiction is not endorsement". I can't say I'm too worried about this. But I also tend to think that Western culture is far too prudish on sexual topics and far too relaxed about ultraviolence, so perhaps I was never going to be too critical about this.
Jep that's Cyberpunk. I like it. So fucked up.
This is like saying “They’re making a game called ForestLand, and I notice they keep showing trees!”
