Crazy motherfuckers. Activision listening to these fools is just another sign this industry is dying (at least in the West. How long can Japan resist the SJW onslaught is another question).
Activision actually listened to them and censored the skin? That was quicker than expected.

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).
Cannot believe the OP is taking an blow on Smash series. I know that he liked the Smash series without any of these political complaints. I wish he would return to his self before the joining of ERA...

I mean it sounds a little insulting. I'm an huge fan of Super Smash Bros, but just because there's an lack of non white characters doesn't mean Nintendo is obligated or needs to be forced to put them in. I'm fine with non-white characters but I thought we had Villager black skin already? What about with the Splatoon Inkling character?

By the way on Gamefaqs there was that thread about Resetera on that Crash game thread, you know what I'm trying to refer to. But it got deleted.

Censorship at its finest.

So where's all the SJW complaining about Mario being a stupid stereotype? How come nobody has the balls to rip that character apart?

- Italian
- Stupid accent "it'z a me uh Mahrio!"
- Dopey bushy 70s pornstache
- Chubby
- Does blue collar work like lots of immigrants did.... construction and manual labour stuff

Only thing missing is a pizza or bowl of spaghetti.

Not a racial stereotype, but a tropes one..... always Mario saving Princess Peach (for the 80th time). Peach is cute giggly girl wearing a ballroom pink gown most of the time.

Ye, but he's Italian. That's white. Who cares?
Just don't give him a Mexican hat.

It's a fucking Bandicoot.

We've accelerated past Clown World when people are assigning races to other animals.
So, let me get this straight...
They had problems when some clothing company had a picture with a black kid wearing a shirt that said something like "coolest monkey in the jungle", and now the problem is an animal who has brown fur and wears a watermelon shirt, but the problem isn't connecting an animal to a black person because in this case it's a good thing, but the problem is adding watermelon to the mix.

HONK HONK

(I dislike a lot of the memes that are there to diss the liberals, like for example the NPC meme is way overplayed now, and I don't like to use them at all especially because a lot of the times parroting these memes looks awfully lot like the thing it's supposed to make fun of. But man, the clown world meme has deserved its stay.)

I already unlock this skin, but still don't get. Before anyone from era jump at me let me say I'm a afrodescendant guy, my dad's family is African while my mother family is native brazilian indians and I still don't understand that.
You jazz hander of racism and stuff! There is nothing honestly to get. If it was not called "Watermelon" nobody would have cared. I mean someone may have gone deep enough to equate color and seeds with a magnifying glass to darker skin color but it was the name that pulled the trigger.

Its that name because of her shirt? She is using a watermelon shirt. Other trophy girls do the same, one with 'lemonade' and other with 'bee' shirt.

Indeed. But because "Watermelon" immediately has a red flag in to some with people of color that is where their minds go. There is no other possible answer. A person of color is not actually allowed to enjoy cold refreshing watermelon without being some kind of self hating uncle tom anymore.

Era's a actual Gaming forum, GAF. Take notes.

If you bet the "racist" thread about CTR was gonna be the most mentally ill thread on CRT at the asylum well sorry to break it you but you lost because there's a thread about a guy who had to resell CTR because it had too much content, he couldn't handle it.


100% PURE UNDILUTED MENTAL ILLNESS

What in the flying fuck is that CTR thread. Really? Them morons are equating it to racism with a really shitty darkened picture? Even with a proper picture they're still calling racism? For a fucking animal. Hahahahahahahaha.

Fuck knows what they'll do if they ever learn one of the UK prime minister candidates (who is gonna win) described tribal warriors as having watermelon smiles and I shit you not used the term piccaninnes once about black people, then tried to claim it as satire.

But these fucking morons are only bothered about a bandicoot......in a darkened picture.....with watermelon in the skin name.....stay fucking classy era.


That star wars thread is a blast too. HOW DARE THEY NOT USE A WOMAN?! QUOTA IS FULL EVIDENTALLY. I WANTED A SEXY FEMALE ALIEN! WHY NOT USE A POC?!

Fuck off retards. Dunno how they can stand the deafening noise in that echo chamber.

These are the types of random thoughts they have.
“Hey, did we ever properly punish Michael Richards for that rant from 15 years ago?”

Can someone explain why there is such a large presence of far leftism in gaming culture? This is a legitimate question.

Are you talking about gamers or about the industry?
Cause if gamers I think this is wrong, ERA is such a tiny thing and even then their gaming side often goes into critical mode when far leftism appears.
Most sane users avoiding such topics I'd wager.

If the industry well I'd expect the type of people going into game dev etc... are your geek/nerd/social outcast used to survive by bending to whatever higher social power dictates.
What people describe as 'cuck', 'beta' 'soy boy' or whatever else these days.
I say this as a software dev and I was a bit like that when younger. The other side of that coin is the ultra defensive crowd that don't want anyone to invade their geek space and taint it.
Both dumb imo.

Also we only get to see the more vocal ones and dissenting opinions these days are risky to express so many might not want to rock the boat unlike some like Vavra who just didn't give a fuck.

It was a safe space for all the nerds that couldn't get girls or play football. Within that space there are other marginalised groups that are there for other exclusionary reasons. It's a strength in numbers thing and I'm sure many there think it will pay off for them (male feminists that think it will get them laid). It's all magnified by staying in thier bubble, tweet your targets to victory becuse they do fuck all else that would put them at real risk. It's slacktivism at its finest. If they ever get just a little bit of power they turn into rampant militants with a tweet defence force behind them. Like many gamers, they grew up not leaving thier bedrooms at their parents house.

There isn't, they are just loud as fuck and garner more attention. Something to note is that there are far fewer far-left gaming forums than there are average gaming forums.

There really isn't. They are just vocal and the terrifying reality is that those that speak out against it are at a real risk to lose their jobs and livelihood because of the pervasive culture out there. Dev's, developers, streamers, youtubers, journalists.... the very moment you start to speak out against the very real monster that has been created out of this clusterfuck you are branded

100% a troll account. I actually might know who this is. The fact Era moderation thinks they're genuine so far is hilarious.
I mean ERA mods have tools to see the ips being logged on both accounts and all that but they refuse to ban alts that way lol.

You sure about that? I had an alt that was banned on activation. There was zero indication from the email address or name I used that it was an alt, so it must have been due to the IP address. It just seems like they pick and choose based on that.
