Era hates Cliffy B so much its pathetic.

Lawbreakers was fun but failed, Radical Heights was ass.

Maybe because he fucks actual woman, is rich and is white they despise him.
Everyone hates on CliffyB. Even when I go to GDC, I hear "Cliffy's an asshole". Then I met him one time and took a picture of him doing some stuff at GDC and had small chat. Nice guy.

On Twitter, he may be grasping at the "oh woe is me" straws a little too much. I feel for his failed projects, but the man needs to let it go or get his frustrations out in a book or something. Maybe join a dev team and work on a game in the current landscape. I dunno.

Do I think it would be nice if Gaf became a hub of gaming discussion among industry people and insiders again like it was at its heydey? Absolutely, I just don't see it happening.
Yeah, if I was a game dev there’s no way I’d bother with forums, even as a person who still prefers them to social media, Reddit etc.

There just aren’t enough people on traditional forums anymore and too many of those that are left are very tribalized and politicized since GamerGate, Trump etc. With the small user bases, that environment makes it all risk and no reward as they’ll eventually post something that upsets the SJWs or go the other way and do something to upset the anti-SJW, “go woke, go broke” crowd.

There's very little chance of generating significant sales from having reps on traditional forums, but almost inevitable to end up losing a few from extremists who won’t buy things if Devs don’t fit every detail of their extremist worldviews. And potentially a lot if it creates an uproar that spreads on Twitter etc. Extremists have crazy views and normal people like most game devs are eventually going to post something that goes against those and causes outrage.

Best to stick to getting information to fans through their own social media channels where they can reach tens of millions and have a more controlled environment by just putting out trailers and info and not having team members participating as forum members in random topics and eventually rubbing some group of idiots the wrong way.

Maybe it’s worth it for Devs of some small niche indie game that will only sell to niche gamers and needs to eek out a few thousand sales to turn a profit. But no reason for AAA Devs who sell millions of copies to bother with forums where even every member buying or not buying their game is a drop in the bucket.

He questioned whether Trans Women should be fighting Non Trans Women in combat sports.
this right here. Joe committed the ultimate sin in the Religion of Wokeness. he still thinks there is a difference between a man who cuts his dick off and calls himself a woman and someone who was born a woman. one of the bedrock beliefs (it is a "belief" because it is not based on physical evidence but actually goes against it, requiring a leap of faith) of the movement is that there is no difference between a trans man and a "real" woman. to even take the question seriously is grounds for excommunication from the Cult.

if you don't 100% follow Woke Dogma, you are cast out as a heretic. it doesn't matter if Rogan has Bernie Sanders or Cornel West on his show. you make a single mistake, you are excommunicated. that's the law of this cult. unyielding fealty to dogma.

what kind of asshole do you have to be to openly wish on deadly storms to hit an area? this dickhead literally praying that an act of God hit my state and fuck us up.

newsflash to this piece of shit MY LIFE ISNT A TV SHOW YOU FUCKING HATEFUL MORON



the fact this idiot thinks "we are living in a TV show" must make it easy to wish death and destruction on millions.

YOU ARE A PSYCHOPATH
"Look, people might lose their lives, have property destroyed, etc, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice for a state I dont live in to get the election results I want. Quit being such a baby about it." 😏

ironic thing is, 55% of POCs live in the south. so congrats on wishing for death and destruction upon the majority of POCs in order to own the GOP.

Y’know, I throught the coronavirus lockdown would have slapped senses to them and made them a bit more realistic (survival, help others if they can, thinking practically).

Apparently not.

I read through that thread. What I am trying to grasp at is why is it when people face backlash the first thing they try to implement is more oppressive solutions to problems that could be tackled in many less extreme ways. Toxic gaming is a thing, so its toxic fans at football games and other situations. How does one tackle a broad issue of what boils down to extreme assholes?

I don't get paid enough to think about it but I doubt going down the path of dictator level tool sets is the way to fix it.

I don't think you're allowed to call them broad issues anymore. They're women's issues.

I like how they start off with "you can't just tell women not to use voice chat and shut them up" and end with "women can just tell everyone else to shut up!"

Great solution. Also, half of you girls are guys, so fission mailed.

Yeah, it's a weird setup where they seem to get off by negging themselves? I guess it's related to the mental issues.

You don’t even have to change your voice, just say you identify as female. Hang on, that post is transphobic, trans women whose voices don’t pass would be booted and we can’t have that.

The thing is, Rogan's position on it is pretty woke. Just not "insane woke." He's advocating protecting women and not allowing them to get pulverized by chicks who used to be dudes. Protecting women's health and rights is a very woke stance. And being that UFC is his life and he knows as much about it as anyone on the planet, if anyone can speak to this, it's him, as he's seen women getting beaten half to death by trans women. Like 99% of people agree with him on this too. It's not even some controversial take. The only people who don't agree with it are the crazies, and I've argued with a couple of these people before. They really have no argument. All they can do is say over and over "You can't prove biological women are weaker than trans women" and when you give them evidence they retreat to saying "well you can't prove that over time trans women don't lose strength and muscle mass and become the same as a biological women" they don't actually make any arguments for why this isn't wrong.

And he's backed his point up several times very rationally and clearly, but the hate parade just wants someone to spit venom at, despite this, and what better hate community than the #1 hate community on the internet.

And then a bunch of those terrible toxic men suddenly decide to be non-passing women and now what? Gonna call them out on it? That's transphoic, you bunch of TERFs.

This is a wheel of hate and madness that just spins faster and faster the longer it's allowed to go.

Edit: Actually, someone in that thread suggested robot voice filters. That actually sounds like a lot of fun, so I'm down with that.

I dunno if these people are just really fucking stupid and clueless or if they're being disingenuous.
Maybe both.

Most people are fairly stereotypical in what they want to see and play, there's a reason why women mostly play cute, sexy and conventionally feminine characters in games and men play the conventionally masculine characters ( and why do men want to look like that? To attract women... Because it's what society regards as sexy in men. ).
The Korean and Japanese know this, and it's why they delibately put cute characters in their games and it's why their games are the most popular with women.
I remember in Blade and Soul the race '' Lyn '' were supposed to be evil and more monsterous, but the devs felt like they wanted to appeal more to women with them so they redesigned them entirely to be cute and it worked.
JRPG's in particular is the most popular genre amongst women in the West too last time I checked, and in every MMO I've ever played whether it be Western or Asian women make their characters look cute or sexy and very feminine.
The Final Fantasy series oozes femininity, it's not your conventionally masculine fantasy. And it has a massive female fanbase.

There's a reason why things are the way that they are in games and why they're designed around conventionally masculine and feminine traits.
Because that's genuinely what the overwhelming majority of both men and women want.
Resetera represents an incredibly tiny minority of people and even then it's just a vocal minority on Resetera too, most people on there don't even talk about this stuff and are just trying not to get banned.

I mean yeah, whoever posted that is right.
It IS an INSANE idea.
And that's not a good thing...
You can maybe get away with it if you're Naughty Dogs or some other big AAA game Sony exclusive that mainly sell based on fancy and movie like visuals and '' cinematic experiences ''. But in general people aren't and don't want to be '' they/ them '', people think it's fucking obnoxious.

Also, if only women could kick people in matches then everyone would just register their account as a woman.
And less women would play to begin if gender was more '' agnostic '' in a game, I can't remember what the study was called but I do remember reading way back about how women actually care more about the gender and presentation of their characters in games and movies than men do.
And I do think that's true, you typically don't see women play games where the characters are more masculine but you do see men play games where the characters are more feminine.

Guy was saying Justice League would still be terrible even in the 4-6 hour Zack Snyder version.
And the guy is a developer in DICE, if that is that one person on there.

It is really the case? Because I am not much of a MP player, but all I am hearing that woman get shitton of friends requests from virgins. Specially now with "simp" culture, that seems more doable. Hell, women profits from heavily on stream platforms (no problem with that). My anecdotal evidence, is that one time, my friend (woman friend™) was playing...what it was BC2 back in the day a she got a headset and well, most friends request I've ever received and a lot of messages too, from "show me ur pussy" to "bet ur fat" (still makes me fucking smile) : D Wonder if this is not some woke fantasy...

That was how I met my ex. We dated for like 3 weeks until she sodomized me with her massive female penis.

Check out this doozy from a "verified account". Prefers Ubisoft over CD Project Red because they promote diversity somewhat, despite them shitting out average games.

I wonder how they would react if their pasty white asses didnt get a job because of diversity quotas. If they worked fhat is.
They would see themselves as a virtuous martyr and would happily suck dick for money, knowing they have played their part in giving a POC Trans person a job.

And? Kind note, this is not about the game it self. It's about "women are not bad and thats a fact".

Just so you can understand this notion: yes, for them women are saint and can do not wrong.

Heres a nice contribution from the same thread:

Weirdos attacking girls on internet? Please, this exists since the age of Counter-Strike and is not new.

Why does he think there is a correlation between a lower-timbre voice and being a man? Isn’t this a bannable offense?

Well much like Cliffy B, Manabyte is a complete tool. During the marvel movie craze he loved how much ree fawned over him. It wasn't until he was banned there for being a knobhead that he came back here and started posting again.
Receipts or STFU. Marvel was super hot last year osf of course he's going to play to that audience, that's how social media promotion works. Now this year all I see is unfounded "Bitch eating crackers" hate directed at him from Reetards and fanboys. I've not seen him be a dick here and is a decent poster.

Found his alt I guess. I have my own reasons for not liking him, or how he has decided to make money, but honestly it doesn't matter itt. It's not bitch eating crackers when he constantly posts made up shit, lashes out when he's called on his bullshit, and chooses to take patreon money from the kids he's fooled into thinking he's an insider.

Now as for why I think he's a tool...



Can't speak to his posts outside this thread, but I personally find it really pathetic that he is lashing out against that forum after attempting to be their nerd king, but realized he wasn't one of the protected elite, then lashed out like an infant and threatened to dox people and DDoS their site. Like I said, knobhead.

But I guess we'll see what happens if/when his ree ban lifts.

That's your receipts? You know that's weak sauce but you've helpfully added more claims without receipts. Seriously it's bitter ex girlfriend bullshit and bitch eating crackers stuff. Grow the fuck up it's nerd fanboy Asshurt shit about stuff that does not matter past the day it was posted.

Bu-bu-bu-bu mah politics in gaming. Crazy isn't it when a bunch of crazies hijack a game to push a political message? Fucking morons. Alt-right clown there, of course only republican would punch down on a charity ffs!!!
This is problematic. We need TaySan's view on this. So should we go after the developer here or go after the journalists reporting on Animal Crossing without a disclaimer on their videos? This animal bigotry must end and journalists are ignoring Nintendo's problematic history. It's so bad for animals that they can't even eat grass on Twitch without being harassed.

Job shaming people. Oh ERA, you are meant to shame people when they make it a point to never work like a top % of your regular posters. And to think that's an insult in a thread about Justice League. Let me tell you a story, Batman v Superman came out on Good Friday in Ireland, my review was that watching BvS was the most suffering anyone went through in history on that day.
