Is this all some kind of elaborate plan to make me feel an emotion beyond even hatred for the woke?

George Floyd was tragic, but there’s nothing to remotely suggest there was a racial component at this time. Stats were even posted earlier saying white men out of every 10,000 arrests were more likely to die than black men.

Just fuck off with this bullshit. I don’t want to listen to the retards burning down my country, and I don’t care.

How about putting out some PR statements to not loot and destroy like an idiot, and see everything through a victimhood lens?

This should really be the universal response to Activision:


In times like these, we, hopefully divorcing the word a bit from our homosexual friends, need the word gay more than ever.

Activision Blizzard has been taken over by SJWs since Kottick decided to break up with Bungie. I swear EA is making all the right moves up to this point. What is Activision doing?

This shit is getting to be absurd at this point. What in the actual fuck does this even help or represent? Does George Floyd's family give a flying fuck if a season pass for a videogame is delayed? They'd probably be just as confused as the rest of us. Hopefully they mention it at the funeral.

Edit:I play the shit out of Warzone and literally just sat down and saw the next season starts in 13 hours and i'm off tomorrow so yea I may be a lil extra salty. But if you question where my thoughts are, you can read my prior post on topics concerning this in the politics thread. Fuck police brutality, the man did NOT deserve to die, but these steps being taken by these mega companies mean JACK SHIT and do nothing to help the cause. It's all a bunch of pandering so these corporate jerk offs can high five each other in their expensive suits while exclaiming "hey look guys we did something!!!"

Wonder if Ghost of Tsushima and Cyberpunk 2077 will be affected by this. I imagine the riots and protests would have hopefully stopped long before then, but with all these people out and about and Covid still being a thing...

I would not be surprised if TLOU 2 gets delayed again if only because now is not the time to play a story based on hate, if the marketing by cuckmann is legit about the game.

Some of you guys are way too into videogames. There is rioting going on and the us is essentially melting down and the first priority is to get mad that a video game dlc gets delayed? Maybe it's more than companies trying to be 'woke' such as not wanting to release their game with so many troubling events going on and risk getting lost in the headlines.

I think it comes off as disingenuous given it's content like this that's delayed and the message isn't really a good one especially when there's a virus still around and it's a Call of Duty Season pack. Not to mention, the need to delay it worldwide seems a bit ridiculous. People can still be aware of a situation while going about their own daily life or taking a break from the negativity. Also, the company is simply doing it because of PR, there's nothing more to it.

I wonder where this ends, what other things do we postpone video game stuff for? Do we do it again when the Covid-19 deaths have hit a certain milestone for example? I presume the big Sega announcement will also not happen this week as well. After all, everyone these days are sheep that just copy each other so that their social standing looks correct.

And the vast majority of the world that isn't the US? Why should they be affected by this?

Its very much like Pride. These companies posting jpeg's of rainbows etc is nothing more than the brand being seen as being inclusive and progressive, its another form of marketing. Personally if I were gay, I would be dubious of their intentions and sincerity. If there really is a Sega/Xbox announcement this week, they will no doubt of already had the conversations around how they will be perceived if everyone else cancels and they don't. Its wrong because its not happening for the right reasons.
