Ion Fury devs patch out non-PC jokes and force all employees & contractors to undergo mandatory sensitivity training

It sucks that people on both forums seem to be far more interested in fighting over this "incident" as some kind of proxy battle in the grand culture war than actually playing and talking about the game itself.

Just like they do whenever THQ Nordic is mentioned.

Taste of their own medicine.

Yes I seen this, some sad shit. I'd like to see their lawyers get involved if they are slandering them. Another forum that deals with synths and stuff, their members got hit with lawsuits from a manufacturer for spreading shit I believe.

A REE thread on new THQ games states in OP 'please stick to talking about games' and within moments we have our first white knight giving everyone a "reminder" that THQ are in bed with white nationalists and paedos and they got away with that - and that everyone involved still has their jobs. Trying their best to galvanise action but I guess that's THQ 1 - REE 0 there. Sadly the Wrekfest thread will be more of the same.

Also, anyone using the term "signal boost" should be punched in the throat :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I have about 70 games in my backlog. I'd still buy it, play it, and talk about it if I had time. I'll probably buy it at some point. Hell, might even play it some point before I die.

I have this problem where I keep replaying old games, and keep buying new games but never play them.

You should join the 52 games in 1 year thread

It’s a great way to motivate you to eat into your backlog.

I think it's more than that. These people are trying to change the shape of peoples' creative work when it has absolutely fuck all to do with them. Any and all future risque or "insensitive" games are at risk. If society continues like this there will be no stand up comedy except for some extremely lame ass shit. No meaningful debate. No anything except for the colour beige. I don't know who appointed these assholes as guardians of supposed downtrodden minorities but if I fitted into any of those categories I wouldn't want them speaking for me or altering anything on my behalf.

If Duke Nukem his good self ever returned (which right now looks actually impossible) can you imagine? He'd be giving strippers counselling sessions and wearing a skirt.

I mean...this isn't the thread for discussing the game itself...that being said I've been playing it. I couldn't get a refund even if I wanted to, I bought it months ago, and I'm not gonna be like some of those dumbasses on RetardEra and have it removed from my library when I've paid good money for it. For what it's worth it's really fucking good. The game itself isn't the problem here. Era and 3DR's response to them is.

Uhhh.....So there is a good chance a Channer was playing ERA from the inside and started this whole thing. Of course the accusation only looked ridiculous to people who...don't post on ResetERA.

Wait, the person who helped push the Ion Fury "controversy" was the same user who helped push the CTR "Watermelon" outrage from several weeks ago? Wonder if they have an opinion on THQ Nordic and Kingdom Come Deliverance, too.

It gets juicier. I'm pretty sure Flapjack21 (who posted the now infamous OGAY and fagbag screenshots) is the same person. All four screens in that REEra post were taken from a single thread on /v/ and the last one was posted just 30 minutes before Flapjack21's post on RetardEra.

Edit: Also of note...both Twenty5Thousand and Flapjack21 are now in the 3DR discord...but only Flapjack21 is active.
Both discord accounts are new.

We can do both though. For instance, I just finished the game yesterday.

This whole thing is incredible in multiple levels.

The Great Hack documentary on Netflix at the moment should be required watching for anyone with Internet access in this day and age. Very few things are as simple as they might seem at first glance.

The only pathetic and laughable people in this whole story are those developers.

They, and every other maker who bows before some random loud SJWs, instead of following their own dream(s), can go fuck themselves.

This is so fucked up (from the Sophia Narwitz tweet):

- Ion fury was made by a fairly small team of people, one of them is disabled and this was his chance to do something for his family and to get off disability pay. Now, thanks to the media punishing wrongthink cuz they said things people didnt like, they are being attacked

Thanks Era, for damaging disabled people.
Great job.

I have registered purely because of the shitfest that is REEERA.

I am quite left leaning but Jesus fucking Christ at the promotion of all this transgender and everyone being offended at everything. Everyone has a stick up their arse and is incapable of taking a joke.

Snowflake society. SJW culture has fucking ruined everything.

Hmm, from reading 4chan threads on the matter, I've seen several people claiming it was a false flag by one of the channers and how he bragged about leaking all this to Reeera. Guess it was true.

It's acutally surprising to see it took so long. Seeing how often the name ResetERA got dropped in the whole process I habe little doubt more channers will Infiltrate ERA and fool around with them.

This is what happens when you are tuned to go looking for things to be outraged by, they are like busybodies on steroids. and busybodies are ALWAYS wrong - and they can NEVER take it when this becomes apparent - they spit the dummy out.

The devs (or whoever deemed it necessary to appease the baying mob) are total imbeciles also though. They should be embarrassed. Didn't they pledge a 10k donation?

They paid 10k to get trolled.

Hilarious.

Real journalism regarding the gaming industry here, albeit independent.

And for what? Playground level name calling? What did she really dig up? Ogaygate?

She dug up nothing. Nada ding.

Which leads to the question - what is gaming journalism?

Surely, it should just be reviews, previews, cheats, guides, tech, accessories, etc.

Which proves that modern gaming journalism is complete and utter trash.

I hope Voidpoint fail. They bought into this whole politically correct language issue hook, line, and sinker.

Edit: I don't tune into sites like IGN because I felt they were too immature, but I think I might have to tune back into them as the adult gaming Twitter press is immature. What happened at Voidpoint should be internal, not the concern of some idiot on Resetera. "No comment" should be protocol for these companies.

Equal parts hilarious and sad :messenger_tears_of_joy::messenger_neutral:

Who the hell benefited from this 10k donation? Some racketeering circle jerk organisation masquerading as LGBT champions?

Dev fucked themselves royally and really only have themselves to blame. You upset your fans (the ones actually buying and playing the game), got your game review bombed, all those refund requests, bad PR, 10k donation, no doubt will have to pay for this "sensitivity training". It beggars belief!

Tragic times.

Sadly in the end games will simply be sanitised out the gate so as to keep a low profile. No winners here today.

Edit: SJW’s win in the end. Although they will have less legitimate issues to rage about, there is always a never ending supply of new non issues for them.

When even Nintendo games get flak you know we are fucked.

A thread on the other board demanding to know why Link from Zelda can't be queer. Just WTF.

I just visit IonEra just now and it seems the users have identity crisis of how to see themselves?
Wtf?

Because they saw the game was still being review bombed after Voidpoint offered an apology and patch. I read comments on Resetera wondering why this would still happen, with their reasoning being that because Resetera "fixed" the problem, there was no need for more bombing? They don't understand how they failed. Once again the far left double-down when faced with a psychological loss. I believe I'm left-wing, but because (I think) I have the ability to self-reflect, it makes me a Nazi on social media. Resetera are just a bunch of sheep.

Makes sense. I REALLY don't care about politics cause they are just videogames.

At some point ResetVoid thought I was a Nazi as well cause I said maybe in the videogame Star Citizens had a White Supremacy nation cause of the complains of the black/other skin colors actors in it....
