You don't even have to take it as far as pointing out the irony of communism eliminating crunch in the videogame market.

Just show me all the high-quality entertainment produced by the USSR. If their system was more conducive to creating high-quality entertainment products compared to capitalism, it should already exist and it should exist in great numbers.

To play devil's advocate, the USSR did have some interesting cinematic films that did highlight the differences between profit driven capitalism and state ran entertainment.

However, their video games were light years behind what the USA and Japan could achieve. Even their most famed game, Tetris, required Soviet game developers to steal Western technology in order to actually develop it.

And without the profit driven desire to advance technology, the USSR would not have made ground breaking consoles like the NES or even the original Playstation. We would be playing 8-bit crap forever.

Well, I wanted to avoid videogames specifically because by the time videogames were coming into their own (mid-70s onward) the USSR was sliding into collapse. I felt that would be unfair to hold it against them.

I won't deny they had some interesting movies. But rivaling Hollywood? Heck, Hollywood was so influential that the US was afraid the communists were going to infect it. At no point was the US's entertainment industry threatened (in terms of quality and output) by the USSR.

Dude, we just had a week where Nike pulled shoes because a football player found the original U.S flag offensive.

SJW's are that batshit crazy, they will find offense at everything and companies keep bending the knee to them.

Now they're claiming a darker colored Bandicoot is the same as actual African Americans.

They might as well claim Polar is a White Supremacist because he's a White Bear.

They're projecting [human] races onto Cartoon animals.

Which in itself is ridiculous. Imagine looking at a Dalmatian and claiming it's a black person just because it has black and white spots.
Oh, so because the fur is darker and the name watermelon? Barely noticed. It's amazing how reset is able continue to find non-issues to get upset at.

Also, in most cases I think these connections make them look bad.

And if you still don't think they're serious, 3 pages later and they're still ass mad about a cartoon bandicoot.


Notice the agenda in this post.

Not only is the skin wrong, but now the company has to be forced into hiring black people.

Also, goddammit, Chappelle was right, the black kid in the SunnyD commercial is totally eyeing up the purple stuff :messenger_tears_of_joy:



I was just thinking this. "All these years, I thought I liked chicken cause it was delicious; but turns out, I'm genetically predisposed to liking chicken! "

I think the worst part of that thread is how they put people on blast for not being offended enough or not understanding getting it (mostly people not from the us)

START THE COUNTDOWN

How long untill Exabyte is going to get whacked for refusing to be offended?

Oh the ink is already drying on that toe tag. He just has not stopped twitching yet.

Now they're going after Smash bros for being racist.... again....




Looks like the Naughty Dog curse is real.
The West is slowly giving up gameplay in favor of pushing "diversity" instead.




At least Nintendo has the benefit of being both a Japanese company and a console manufacturer, so they're spared from having to deal with the SJW West.

Unfortunately, we can't say the same with Japanese developers who have to work with Sony (who now have their headquarters in SJW central, California).

And BAM. They finally got him. Exabyte is no more.




Resetera is literally like the fucking Mafia.

If you don't "kiss the ring", the mods will send a drive by hit squad to take you out.



"Hey Tony. We got someone here who refuses to be offended by a Cartoon Bandicoot. How about we help him go sleep with the fishes?".

Comparing blacks to an animal is the racist shit.

These people are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Well, to be fair, they made Tetris.

What the fuck is "Hand waving racism"? What kind of fucking flaw do you have to be to actually type something like that, to actually think like that? How fucking pathetic does your existence have to be? And the other people in that thread quoting and dog piling for not carrying the banner of persecution

Ahhh, now I get why they're offended.

There was a level in Crash Bandicoot 3 where Crash had to get to the finish line while dodging Police cars.

Of course, Naughty Dog being "white supremacists" didn't realize how offensive this was back in 1998 and now adding a go-kart skin that features watermelon clothing only goes to show how cruel and oppressed the Bandicoots are.

Shame on you Activision. Shame.

Seriously, I never heard of this so called steryotype and my country is kinda racist. Is it something exclusive to one country?

I hope they didn't change Watermelon skin, I think its her best skin.

Edit: my god, they don't even know how to use their eyes to correlate the word "Watermelon" with her attire. Shes dressing a pink attire with seeds dots and a green short. For tnt's sake, not even the work of looking at her skin they have, just want to make heavy drama.

The CTR thread is possibly based on a darkened image anyways. She doesn't seem that dark on my TV.

But it lets them cry about racism, ban people that disagree, and post pictures of all the white people working at Beenox. Another day at Era.

How retarded.

I've been to Detroit a few times. One time we went to a convenience store. Same thing. Never seen such an odd contraption before in my history of any travel anywhere. Transactions for chips and drinks through a bulletproof window. Retarded.

Good god, they're insane.



It's a fucking Bandicoot.

We've accelerated past Clown World when people are assigning races to other animals.

What the fuck? These people really think black people are animals.



Crazy motherfuckers. If Activision listens to these fools, it would just be another sign this industry is dying (at least in the West. How long can Japan resist the SJW onslaught is another question).
