At least Sony didn't invite him to an event and then cancel on him.
It is hard because nobody wants to be related with him anymore.
I can understand why public companies choose that.

But I blame the PAX admins because they should not invite him to begin with... that was their first mistake... cancel was the second.

Sony at least is not doing anything wrong... just ignoring somebody that they won't be public related.

I think you are confused with the quote :D

"I think he made a joke on twitter two years ago about women being more talkative then men."

You did a better summary.
BTW his own friends were against him so I believe the things were not just jokes at all.
Like Andy Signore's 'friends' threw him under the bus because of false harassment accusations? That kinda friends?

He made the tamest dad joke I've ever heard. So he got run off his own podcast, abandoned by his coworkers and "friends," and labeled a nazi. He also wore a Don't Tread on Me shirt once.
Good riddance. Dude literally sounded like Hitler.

I remember the shirt fiasco and some of the tame jokes and the whole cancel culture wave that went with it. I'll say again now what I said then, I don't really care for the guy, his opinion doesn't affect me at all, but to try and cancel someone because you don't like the things they said show's how much of a coward one can become. If you feel the need to cancel someone, it shows that you are afraid of the ideas/words and can't argue against their merits so you try and cancel the person.

Well I can feel bad for him... he did it for himself.

He did a lot more than that lol
No he didn't.

His post was "A day without women... Ahhh peace and quiet". That's all it took for SJWs to lose their shit.

I cant imagine that has anything to do with it. He has had some leaked information lately, that if it turns out true, might indicate he said things he was not supposed to say.

He highly suggested he had inside info a Demon's Souls remaster was coming, first example.

Fuck Sony in this regard. Colin is fucking awesome and way better than anyone else who covers PlayStation. Anyone who was offended by his at worst "just not funny" joke is a fucking pussy with no spine or backbone and can't even take a joke. Greg Miller and the rest are fucking blowhards who don't know shit. Majority of what they say is so off it's ridiculous.

People should really watch his almost 3 hour interview with Joe Rogan from when that tweet happened. Colin is by far the smartest and most intelligent guy in the room. Best of all, he says what he feels and wants to say and never apologizes. In other words, he's a man.

Maybe they think he's coat-tailing (is that the right phrase?) .. I keep hearing his name, but what's the content (I get people like the podcast) - there comes a point when it's more about you than the subject.

I don't think it's anything to do with "cancel culture" - but they would shy away from anyone considered "divisive", no matter how mild

Probably just corporate cowardise

This is a bad thread.

"New news. new thread". What the hell is the news?

EDIT: Here is a link to the podcast that Harlock Harlock was referring to (I think). Will provide a timestamp when I hear Colin talk about this subject.

He also has the only gaming posdcast I can stand.

I wonder why they do this? The guy is pretty tame, but he is not part of the gaming media mafia, so I guess that would be one thing. So the other gaming "journos" just feel embarrassed by their ignorance in his presence, so Sony decided to make it easier on them so they had to cut him out of the insider loop.

Listening to the podcast - 10mins about his Patreon, then straight into some entitlement shit about his rights to a response to emails from big corp..

This is his own website



Take a look - why the fuck would a corporation interact with this ? It's a big page of nothing with presumably some content behind a paywall.

Why would Sony give them any exclusive details, or even interact with this - it's crazy

I looked into this last time about the PAX event and he also kind of burned bridges by associating with Sophia Narwitz and Chris Ray Gun who both have or are still producting "anti-sjw" content and on occasion retweets people like Ian Miles Cheong. One of the tropes in ultra progressive circles is a vague invocation of "harm" to stifle dissent and he's offering them plenty of ammunition by boosting some reactionary voices.

There's not much else to say about it beyond games is an intellectual wasteland ripe for ideological capture.

Cheers for time stamp.

As for news, Sony blacklisting #1 playstation podcast qualifies, I think anyway. You can always report to mods and ask to get thread cancelled if you want.
I agree the topic is newsworthy, I just had no idea what your source/details were from reading the OP. You mentioned a post in a different thread that you easily could’ve linked, which mentioned a podcast you easily could’ve linked. News threads should give people, well, the news. Not a disorienting one-liner. Not trying to be harsh just saying how I feel honestly.

He also did nothing to warrant this kind of treatment, his "friends" were a bunch of cucks and Sony wants the Disney audience and has been pandering to soy boys and purple haired monstrosities for quite some time.

Isn't that a Metallica song? what's wrong with that?

also what is the joke?
It's some saying from the American Revolutionary period that I'm not that familiar with. But in the last 10-15 years has become loosely affiliated with militia movements and tea party types. Similar to people flipping out about the Betsy Ross flag. It's US history but people act like it means you're a nazi.

I think his joke was something related to a holiday or something. No women around, or no women talking. So he just tweeted: "ah, peace and quiet." Total dad joke.

You didn't answer my question though. So far, from what other people have posted in this thread, it seems he did absolutely nothing wrong but was cancelled for wrong-think by woke twatter
The issue was not the bad joke about a day without woman in the woman day (it was not the first similar joke from him neither the last).
He is extremist right to the point that what he says and the jokes are extreme preconceptions... he did not was compared with Hitler for nothing.
Even his closed friends tried to talk with him without any results to the points that their new channel was failing... so they reached an agreement for him left the channel.
His political ideias is out of pace even if you look at the barbarian world of centuries ago.

Nobody wants to be related with that that of guy.... so Sony and Pax are right but Pax is wrong to invite first to cancel after... they should never invite to begin.

Colin Moriarty created his own grave with that extremism... now he is just suffering the results of that.
Anybody thinking he is being bullied by the society needs to take some time to think about his actions before try to defense him from his own mistakes.

About the joke.

He posted about how nice could be to have a day without women on the women's day.
He was ridiculous and I'm a straight man... I showed it to my wife and she rolled her eyes... it was low, unnecessary, I don't even consider a joke.

It is the same joke a guy at break off did here in Brasil and he was fired.
"This employee took my arm, said he wanted slavery to come back, that I would have to have sex with him, repeating all the time that I should do what he wanted, as if it were the most normal thing in the world."

These types or kinds of jokes there is no place anymore.
I feel ashamed when I see mans doing that.

Not sure why this is surprising, he's just a dude making a gaming podcast on the internet. I'm sure he can still talk about, purchase and play Sony games just fine. Why were they giving him personal responses and inside scoops to begin with?

I suppose you can prove this right? Also, ignorant morons on the far left loves to compare anyone right of Stalin to Hitler. The only thing that does is show how uneducated and unintelligent the people making those comparisons are

Who the fuck made you and your wife king and queen of comedy? So what if you dislike a joke? That's your problem

Funny because it sounds like you'd fit right in there. Also, address the post instead of trying to weasel out. Do you have proof that he is far right, yes or no? My money is on no
Anybody that follow him knows him is far right lol he is even open about that.

You already made up your mind with the tone of your replay.
I just don't like people trying to defense somebody with false claims.
But hey you can do whatever you want.
