Red Text Keep in mind that Zack Weiner is a victim in this story. He had a video released without his consent. With that said, please avoid making jokes about what happened and jokes about his name. Any posts after this that do either, will be actioned.

GamingThread CDPR is a transphobic company. It's time we stop making excuses for them.
Red Text This thread is absolutely NOT for discussion about CyberPunk 2077 gameplay impressions, hardware issues, or anything else like that. The thread title nor the OP has anything to do with those things, as you can obviously tell this thread is about CDPR's history of transphobia. Anyone using this thread to talk about CP 2077's gameplay will eat a hefty ban, this is absolutely the wrong thread for it. The CyberPunk 2077 thread was locked for a SINGLE DAY to honor a commitment about locking the OT in honor of trans day of remembrance, which fell the day after it's original release date. It will be reopened tomorrow. You can last one day without a thread about the game.

Some deviation in subscriber numbers, while both normal and to be expected, is not what this thread is about nor are personal, anecdotal reasons as to why you may have stopped watching the videos or unsubscribed.

GamingThread Former 343 Employee Uploads Another Video Saying No Force Crunch
Red Text I cannot believe this needs to be said, but legitimate reporting is hard. It takes time, sometimes weeks, months, or even years to get the interviews and information needed to publish a story. It isn't a process that takes 20 minutes and a handful of phone calls. Journalists don't sit on huge stories until the right time, they put them out when they have the information. Especially at legitimate outlets with a reputation for trustworthiness.

In the previous version of this thread, one review raised some eyebrows due to a tangent about the prefix "xeno" in a game about extraterrestrials, relating it to United States immigration policy.

A sort of "tap on the shoulder." After discussing it internally, we've agreed it was applied too broadly, and so the majority of them have now been lifted.

The OP is also asking about how other adaptations handle one of the most visceral and disturbing examples of sexual assault in manga/anime. Please think about what message you are sending when you are another voice choosing to ignore such issues.

EtcetEraThread Baltimore student passes 3 classes in 4 years, ranks near top half of class with 0.13 GPA (See Staff Post)
Red Text The original version of this thread had a disappointing number of posters blaming the students and/or accusing the parents of not caring, and many of those posters had clearly not read the article. Not only does a school administrator admit that the school failed here, but when a 0.13 GPA is better than half the class, there are clearly broad systemic failures of a shocking magnitude. Students at this school are not being given a fair chance to succeed.
