Your from germany where Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization working there with the help of your retarded left government

Nazis coming from your stupid country and now they are supporting extremists

So STFU
Muslim Brotherhood is forbidden in Germany. And even I do not like the Greens and leftist or SPD this is just fucking Stupid. They are working With Antifa for sure but not the Muslim Brotherhood. But we reccently had a scandal about a important Covid defenseforce member was a advocate of Mao Ze Dong.^^

Dude, you are the one who is looking like a fool. Not me. But keep enjoying your great freedom. Try criticizing your government on social media and see how this will play out for you :)
believe it or not the government dose get criticized on social media. people complain about taxes, unemployment and illegal immigration like every other country. government responds by slowing down tax rollout, giving aid for lowest income families, restricting certain jobs for citizens only.

Hollywood taking money from China fucked that industry and the quality of movies over the last decade.

Sad that this is probably gonna impact games in a similar way.

A clown from SA trying to Stan for the glorious kingdom by trying to take the moral high ground.

Fact check: global Islamic Terrorism wouldn’t exist if the Saudis weren’t promoting their bastardisation of islam and financing extremism.

Terrorism started in the Arab world by the Brotherhood who are protected in the west.

and any proof to your claim we don't follow "true" Islam?

Does anyone seriously question why hostile countries like China and now Saudi Arabia are now taking stakes in the gaming industry? Because this to me is not a good thing.

I never said you don’t follow true islam. I said you have bastardised the religion. At least you don’t deny the funding of said bastardisation throughout the world.

It’s not too long before 100% of those companies belong to authoritarian regimes.

Didn't the US just kill over a million people in Iraq? Why are hostile countries like the US now taking stakes in the gaming industry?

But on a serious note, fuck SA and the CCP

NeoGAF: "Capitalism & free market! FTW!"

Also NeoGAF: "N-noooooo don't take dat money iz dirty! What's that? What do you mean it's anti capitalist to not accept any money offered in a "free market"? N-no the NBA and Hollywood was fine before they took that "big" Chinese dick in all holes! N-no what do you mean the US isn't the largest market in the world? It's not the 90's anymore?"

Take your politics garbage to to your containment board please this is the gaming side.

3% is insignificant and hardly news worthy but you're so ready to label your fellow fourm members as killers and woman haters because they're happy someone in their country gives a shit about their hobbies and they no longer need to hide their interest or be ridiculed as man children, kindly fuck off to 4chan if you don't want to look at the other person's POV and make judgment on their beliefs and character just because they're from somewhere you don't like.

I really don't see what the big deal here is? Saudi Arabia is not trying to push any propaganda through gaming etc. They are just diversifying because they know oil won't be around forever.
Exactly, it's an investment like any other. Same thing Norway is doing. Thinking any of these countries would ever meddle with the companies they invest in is lunacy considering it's very minority positions.

I don't like the games these companies make or what they're about, but they do make money. Not a bad investment. Nice I guess.

what is the "bastardised" you claim?

as for funding, it's the worldwide Brotherhood network based in your countries.

They are publicly traded companies so anyone can own a piece of em and in case people didn't read the article. $3.3 billion sounds like a lot but they only own a tiny percentage of each company.
I thought MBS had majority control of SNK.

Palestinian Authority is responsible for health services in their administrative territory, it's what they asked for.
No, Israel is the occupying power and is responsible for health services under international law. If Israel doesn't like that it should stop occupying Palestine.

The reality is that the Saudi and Emirati governments are the geopolitical allies of Israel at this point, so it's not surprising that their brainwashed citizens are repeating their Zionist propaganda.

it was the Palestinian Authority that accepted the terms of self administration, not Saudi or UAE. the PA also refused an economic initiative to invest in the in Palestinian Authority territory . maybe hold them accountable instead of blaming others.

Who cares about what the US did, we aren't a country like SA or the CCP. That's not what I meant.

The Palestinian Authority does not administer its own territory, Israel does. Israel controls the borders, including the flow of vaccines. As the occupying power, under international law, it has the legal responsibility to ensure proper distribution of vaccines. Why are you repeating Zionist propaganda? Is this the sort of misinformation your government feeds you?

The US isn't a country like SA or China in the sense that it kills many orders of magnitude more innocent people worldwide than either of those two, maybe.

Hmm, SA and China have done more but let's not get into politics here. This isn't ResetEra.

They're not hostile countries in the traditional soviet union or north korea sense. Its more complicated than that. We are interconnected to them across multiple industries.

I'd be happy to shorten it to it's business, it's about making money get over it, no one's gonna censor or inject you're favorite EA/Activision game like CoD or BF with Muslim/Saudi propaganda, lol not when it's American propaganda in the first place.

(which is especially lol-tastic since it's made by Sweds!)
