Yeah this is pretty gross. Expected at this point. Can't this place be safe from that? Cmon mods
This is very common for two multi billion dollar companies in particular.
Embarassing post. What makes you think others don't have contracts in place?Another embarassing post.
Careful, you might be called a corporate shill for calling out these crazy ass posts. Lol
People told me Xbox doesn't do timed exclusives though
the Definition for the word flop is total failure. How is Cyberpunk total failure sales wise? it may be dissapointment and very well underperformed, but it sure as hell aint flop. But its schreier so I am not surprised.
Never underestimate console warriors.
I'm sorry, but why can't the PS4 Pro version's fps be uncapped (thus shooting the PS5 version up to, or close to, 120fps) Seems like lazy development.
Nobody thought this, dumbass.
is there a Hangout for PrudeERA yet? This could’ve gone in that OT instead.
Huge part of Resetera in suicide watch
Nah its fine to objectify somebody aslong as their male. I imagine this thread playing out exactly the same if it were in reference to a female face model like..."Can we talk about how Jillian Murray is still a smoke show!?"
The only way Epic is ruining Switch is by pushing Aloy/Playstation on the platform.
But its ok when a black woman plays a historically white woman? Everyone is full of hypocrisy and pandering to pc snowflakes. Yes more should be done for diversity in all media but people jump on every little thing. Straight people can't play gay people for god sake. It's becoming insane.
Years and years of struggle for womens mma to break in to acceptence just so people can shit on how they wear their hair on a video game forum.
Cultural appropriation is such a stupid, idiotic takeaway from this, and all other cases it's been mentioned. Culture is ment to be shared, that's why we have culture. I've never heard about anyone being angry because someone has mimiced or weared anything from their culture. It's always a single person or something being offended by someone else. To quote Stephen Fry: "So fucking what". It's stupid and people that say others can't look like or dress like some cultures is disgusting and pathetic.
My bad, I didn't even know what cornrows were.
I fully get that there's a history around black hair, and if people take issue with it, who am I or anyone else to say they can't. But I personally just can't get behind saying some people are only allowed to do their hair in certain ways. It's hair, most people have it, and while it comes it different textures, colours, and temperaments, it's still hair at the end of the day. Were it being done to mock a culture, or as a costume, that's a whole other thing, but it doesn't sound like that's the case here. To the other strand in this thread, it is absolutely baffling there is not a black woman in Overwatch. It's been 4 years since I played it, and it's wild none of the characters added have been black women.
An article on this popped up on my Twitter feed a few days back and I was so confused as to what the source of the criticism is. I've not seen one thread on Reddit, or Era, about this until now. Publications jumping on stories that are, in my opinon, not an issue, while ignoring real issues that need highlighting.
so why has no one told the mma fighters not wear it then
Cornrows were done in Ancient Greece.
Hairstyle isn't culture
Put the pitchforks away. This is a functional and ubiquitous hair style for women in combat sports.
Im a half blood myself and showed this to my family and the respons was who cares there are bigger problems with cultural appropiation, discrimination and racisme then this. Its a hairstyle and clearly because of a functional reason in MMA or any fighting sport for that matter.
I'll admit, I've always been a bit confused by applying "cultural appropriation" to hairstyles and fashion. I can completely understand the upset if it's something religious or spiritual, or if the adopters are deliberately trying to rewrite the history of the fashion choice in question, but otherwise... Isn't this just a sign that your culture is awesome? You're heading towards a Civ culture victory. Maybe America should be mad that the world is wearing blue jeans? I don't think anyone using this hairstyle, in games or MMA, is trying to hide the fact that it's a traditionally black hairstyle. I think they just recognise its value. Is that bad?
Well this is beyond stupid
I think some people are just desperate for the clicks to paint this as a problem, it's not disrespectful, not unrealistic, not a problem.
So we are hating on Overwatch because it doesn't have a black woman? It is coming in OW2 which is good, but Overwatch has one of the best diverse cast of characters. It is one of the few (or only?) big games with good Arab representation from its cast to the maps. Ana is one of my favorite video game characters of all time. Also, please don't get anger at me if you hate Blizzard for other reasons that I'm not aware of. I'm just talking about Overwatch here as someone who played the game.
Must be a slow news day if people getting up in arms over this.
I totally agree. I think we should list up every race’s unique hairstyles and make sure no other race uses them. Especially fictional characters, because that could set a bad precedent for impressionable children who might want to have the freedom to look and feel the way they wanted during their very limited time existing in this world.
This is the most non-issue among all non-issues. It's borderline insanity.
This seems like a total non issue to me =/
Sounds like the usual morons who are way too keen to find anything to be amped at. I don't watch much fighting but even I've seen plenty of female athletes with that exact hairstyle. This is a non story, its completely fine.
I don't see the problem. It doesn't matter if you're white, black, green or blue you can have any hairstyle you want.
Hairstyle appropriation "controversies" always get a raised eyebrow from me. Throw another one on the pile.
Cancel Bob Ross while we're at it too.
It's a lot easier to complain on the internet about trivial things than it is to get out there and make an actual difference.
So basically the issue isn't overwatch, but people are angry because this Chinese fighter wears her hair a certain way? I'm sorry, but I don't think hairstyle should be considered any kind of cultural appropriation, I've known people of all races that wear their hairstyle in all sorts of ways. This just seems ridiculous.
No hairstyle belongs to any one race or culture. Period.
It's the current news meta, find a couple of random users on twitter that disagree with something and write a quick article with some eye catching title for easy clicks.
There is nothing the SDF won't defend.
The nude mods for this are gonna make me nuuuut Oh no I hope the witches don't catch me
Epic bad Steam good
I want games to succeed, but if Sony starts making all sorts of records at $70, it's gonna suck for all of us. Instead, if they see games at full price not come in quite as much on day 1, they might change around
So we're going to ignore the continued abuse of journalists and reviewers by members as long as it's not literally using a screenshot posted by Colin Moriarty and we'll just continue to ignore the use of what is absolutely gamergate style rhetoric consistently in review threads gucci
A flop? lol. Jason should have stayed at Kotaku.
The game didn't flop. To call it "troubled" or something like that is more accurate. But Schreier is as arrogant as ever and isn't going to give up the point.
Resetera, the community where developers matter until they suddendly don't matter because there's an article going agaisnt Valve or some shit.
