I see you don't have a licence to link the actual tweet, so here it is:
This very Orwellian message just popped up on the twitter account for Police Scotland - ominous indeed. The double-down is real.
Also, I thought that porn was going to be filtered in the U.K.? I ask because they are getting pooned pretty hard in the replies.
Today we are launching a campaign on #HateCrime. Be #GreaterThanAHater and report any incidents of hate crime by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.
Back in my day, telling someone to call the internet police was a joke.

Rowan Atkinson: we must be allowed to insult each other (from 2012)
He criticised the "new intolerance" as he called for part of it the Public Order Act to be repealed, saying it was having a "chilling effect on free expression and free protest".Mr Atkinson said: "The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult."

Well at least they are getting shit on by everyone outside Scotland. People taking the piss out of them publicly really undermines their tough guy attitude. It just demonstrates how powerless they are on a world wide platform.
I swear this sounds like the sort of thinking that people should be punished for whatever thing they said online even many years later. Well excuse people for not being "woke" at 12 years old when first get online.
It reminds me when the Justice Democrats kicked out Cenk Uygur because of stupid shit he said like 20 years ago despite him no longer standing by that. This type of thinking basically means you're forever guilty even if what might not had been so bad back then suddenly becomes bad in the future.
As a scot in my forties I remember a time when something like this would have generated a response of "ah away fuck yerself you fucking wanker", and quite possibly less polite versions...
lol, their last picture they shared is victim blaming victims of robbery.
Don’t gift thieves an opportunity! Criminals are opportunists and may take advantage of poor security. #DontDropYourGuard ensure your windows and doors are locked securely when leaving your home even if you are only leaving for a short time.
Sounds an awful lot like "targeting someone who is different from you." So because they want to leave their windows open and their door open, they deserve to be targeted by police for shame? Shameful display!
This image says it all. They're infringing on freedom while treating us all like children. Glad to not live in Scotland, but it's not much better elsewhere either.
Fascist pigs. Everyone in countries that aren't shitholes (or shitholes to a lesser degree, like my country) should hurt the feelings of these pathetic losers in the Scottish police force.
12 years ago Anonymous would have fucked their shit up for doing some shit like that. What the hell happened. Why aren't there pro free speech hacker groups?
From the Uk where a guy was sentenced to 12 months for throwing bacon at a mosque then just so happened to die in prison Here
They are getting absolutely destroyed on twitter, its been so savage its almost funny.
They're getting trolled massively now lol. They can't go after everyone. How pathetic are our police that they go after people saying "offensive" stuff rather than actual criminals?
How did it come to this, and why does it seem like no one in the country is fighting back?
How did they go from Churchill and Thatcher to... this, and under a Tory government (allegedly the “””conservative””” party)?
The mind boggles.
Great Britain is fucking dead
The UK has legitimately become a police state.
what is the limitation of liability in time for going against the communication act anyway?
not that i as a non britan citizen am very concerned, given we have no such thing as an 'anti offense law' but i would still be interested.
Shit like this is why I switched all my social media profiles to London, Berlin, etc.

Reminds me off a political cartoon with a bunch of cops with their batons out looking at a crowd of people and announcing "You wouldn't believe what's illegal today."
"Are we the baddies?"
I can't help but feel these messages are just bait for people to reveal their wrongthink in disagreement. When there are none left that can or will take the bait, mission accomplished, utopia achieved.
Americans are still free to give them a piece of their minds, anyway. There is that, I suppose.
Yo, Police Scotland, my dick called. It's throwing a party and your mouth's been chosen as suitable candidate for the venue.
Everything they say is actually 100% true. The exception is the "same rules apply" stuff will be very locale-dependent, but everything else is factually accurate.
Still would prefer not to see this sort of thing from a police department of all places though. It's not so much that they're wrong, it's just that I wish police would focus on more important issues, like maybe the child rape epidemic in the UK, constant coverups of same, and leave the raising of children to their parents.
Mel Gibson is spinning in his "FREEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!" 's pretend grave.
This has been addressed yesterday by Philip de Franco, but it's high time that this sort of thing gets addressed by a bigger voice. I am still absolutely livid that the verdict was such, and that "they'll gas entire football stadiums" has been used as a rationale to push said verdict.
Well that is objectively correct, but a police account tweeting that feels extremely Orwellian, as others have said.
Does anyone have any examples of Muslims in the UK calling for violence against Jews where none of them were prosecuted. I'm going to write a letter to my local MP to protest Count Dankula's conviction and I want an example of hypocrisy to make my argument stronger.
Fun fact, I live in the county of Shropshire; Telford is also in Shropshire, been a pretty depressing week.
Not So Fun Fact: Ex post facto law (i.e. being charged with a crime if you did something that used to be legal when it was legal but is later made illegal) is forbidden by the US Constitution but not protected under UK (and most of Europe) law!
I felt it was germane to this discussion because if you posted something like "I really don't like the ideas of (political party)" online now and one of those countries 10 years from now decides that whatever you have against the ideals of (political party) is hate speech, well guess what...
Well i'm gonna be marched to the gallows -_-
let's stop calling it Britain and call it what it actually is:
I'm sure every other totalitarian militia force thought they would last forever too.
I want off this ride, holy shit
What'll they do if I say some crazy shit from across the pond?
The internet was fun while it lasted.
They really want to be hated right?
Nothing like censorship via intimidation.
So glad I left UK...This is beyond disgusting...
Shit man, spoken like a true fascist.
I’m a Scot. Police Scotland have over the last few years been centralised. All our regional police have been amassed under one central, state operation by our nationalist government. More plain clothes policing, more unmarked cars and more aggressive, Orwellian oppression on social media. Slippery slope and one I am voting against.
Important to say I fully support Scottish Police Officers and am voting in a way that I feel supports that.
What you post now can affect you later in life.
Self-awareness levels critical
Holy crap! There really is a cyberpolice that's going to backtrace us?
We done goofed! Consequences will never be the same!
Good grief, Scotland. You need William Wallace now more than ever.
Yeah righto Scotland police you smug cunts. What about prince Harry dressed as a Nazi?
These fuckers going to apply the law retroactively soon.
Has this idiot ever heard of VPNs?
to the police: you should remember you said that.
I w9nder if they would post this so confidently if the people were allowed to form a well-regulated militia....
Probably. Even our (america) cops say some stupid shit like this.
But fuck scotland PD. You should be more busy trying to bust up rape gangs in that part of the world.
I guess Jessi Slaughter's dad really did get the last laugh by finally getting around to contacting the Cyber Police.
Consequences will never be the same.
But muslim terrorists and rapists are a-okay, but don't you dare make a joke...
Great Britain was never great
I wonder how many people outside of Scotland are trolling the Scotland police after this Twitter post?
Give me that damm twitter link, want to do pugjoke!
So I guess all the Scottish enlightenment Scots sailed to the new world?
Is this the Ministry of Truth?
good to see literally no other crime has happened so they're able to devote even a minute to this.
I'm ashamed to be a Scotsman right now. Looking forward to Indy when we can get rid of these English cucks.
I don't use Twitter. Is sending them insults via email acceptable?
What a bunch of fags.
People are crazy if they think it can't happen here in the States.

I'm happy my ancestors didn't stay in Scotland. Not sure when they got out but it seems a good idea nevertheless.
Big brother is watching motherfuckers! You better watch out!
Life in Scotland must be pretty safe/good/chill if this is the kind of crime that the police are concerning themselves with.
People should go all in on this. What about ugly people? Short? Poor? Anime fans? Like ask them is it ok to "hate" based on that? Soccer teams? Can I hate on someone for liking a certain team? Is that a hate crime and why not?
So fucking what? #endclickbait
If you can't do the time don't do the crime.
It's a fair warning. Hopefully it makes a few retards think twice before ruining their own lives.

How is it sane to suggest that women want to see Deadpool of all people take it off?

Feminists again equating feminism with women.
Tell me again how it's about gender equality.
Good for them.
Also, feminists as literal Harpies is hilarious.
For context: they did the mobile ports of a PC fantasy strategy-sim called Majesty, which didn't take itself too seriously at all. The "feminist harpies" bit is from an in-game scenario dealing with actual creature harpies.
My OP was from the paid version of the game, not the free and more p2w version.
At first I thought the offense was at harpies being lumped in with the likes of feminists.
How many feminists does it take to change a lightbulb?
That's not funny
"Feminists = women!"
No. No it doesn't.
Harpies are cute though
At least the japanese ones are.
Hey man come on why all the harpy hate?
HeroCraft, what did poor little harpies ever do to you to deserve to be compared to disgusting feminists?
"HeroCraft" is apparently a very appropriate name. Not the heroes we deserve, but the ones we need.
I caught a pretty bad case of harpies once.
Aren't they a Russian company? Would sort of explain their flippant attitude in the face of this bullshit.

You know next time maybe justs put the playstore link also in your post or in your first post..
Fucking. Based. This is the PR equivalent of telling someone "I'm sorry you feel that way." Pisses them off to no end and it's hilarious.
God bless Vavra. The success of Kingdom Come is awesome, but those sales numbers also have the side effect of giving a lot of mainstream/non-political gamers a good look at just how shady, dishonest, and ideologically driven the gaming press is.
I hope they keep railing on him. All it seems to do is bring in more purchases and make those "journalists" look like the assholes they truly are. And the best part is that I don't think these websites can stop doing it. They probably even know they look like complete pricks but they just can't help themselves.
Let's see what Polygon understands as 'fans being vocal'. The article links to a post from /r/kingdomcome with 200 upvotes, 16 days ago. Significant?
Looking at the top links on the sub, there are 25 submissions with 1603 or more upvotes in the past 23 days. Look to be (nearly) all positive. In fact, looking at the top submissions, it places at around 600 (link doesn't work, but I saw the submission at a 575 offset).
But you don't see Polygon reporting on all of that. No, it has to be about women, and it has to be a story they can semi-spin to be negative. Truly beyond pathetic from this trash site.
A developer who focuses on fixing bugs first in 2018?
That's like finding a fucking golden unicorn.
the hitpiece: http://archive.is/dfDFu
This might be the most transparent hit piece i’v seen from Polygon to date. Thats saying something given the sheer number of hit pieces they pump out.
It sounds like what happened with Shovel Knight and Shantae.
The stretch goal content wasn't in the initial release, but was patched into the game as updates and given to backers free of charge.
Author's response: https://archive.fo/cWdvq
They updated the article too: https://www.polygon.com/2018/3/8/17096488/kingdom-come-deliverance-team-will-not-commit-to-kickstarter-stretch-goals
Fools thought they could get away with this blatant of a hit piece.
yeah, fixing the broken mainquest(s) seems more important, than adding a dog. even though i would love a dog companion
They're just being utterly petty now, having failed to make the developer cave into SJW demands they now just trying to bad-mouth the game in hopes of crippling sales.
Needless to say that isn't going to happen, and it's going to send the message industry-wide that standing up for your product and not bowing to people who wouldn't play the game anyway is a winning move.
Razorfist made a good point on this title: gamers wouldn't hesitate for a moment to trash a AAA studio for rushing a title out the door to market full of bugs. Now, Razorfist also mentioned that - and I agree - when you're dealing with Kickstarter the fact that the backers can CHOOSE when the game comes to market is relevant and I'll cut Warhorse some slack for that but I don't think, as a general rule, it's wise to slacken standards just because you're dealing with good guys like Warhorse. In fact, I think it's even MORE important to hold their feet to the fire: with the influx of cash and hype KCD has given them you're talking about a team with the potential to go on and become the new CD Projekt... we owe it to Warhorse and ourselves to best try and steer Vavra and his peers down that path. Tough love is gud.
That aside, the Polygon aspect of this: Zzzzzzzzz
It's a slow news day... media was barred from the o e topic in the menu so i guess they figured they would just make something up...
He thinks Polygon knows about video games.
I am Mnemosyne reborn. Crush! Kill! Destroy! /r/botsrights
I'll prepare to be buried, but maybe he should've done these things before releasing the game.
Literally all they needed to do was send an email/message to Daniel and ask what their plans were. But they couldn't. They didn't. And now they've made a fool of themselves. Again.
Another game of never heard of until some level of bureaucracy decided they were going to shit themselves to silence someone.
Why won't they withdraw the money and move to another platform?
Why is Patreon giving these people grief? There's so many porn artists on patreon it's not even funny.
I am Mnemosyne reborn. I love the sight of humans on their knees. /r/botsrights
What are Patreon's new guidelines?
I can see why the devs would have to resort to that, given the circumstances.
Though if anything, it's also shedding more light onto the people forcing others into such situations just to keep doing what they want to do.

Fyi all people who used patreon should do what shad base does
All you need to do is make it clear your patreon isn't for what's it's really for. If shad can get away with it anyone can. Use it as a tip jar not a hub and you'll be fine.
Don't censor your games people.
I'm curious to see what sort of changes they will make to the story to make it compliant. There is also more of the problematic content than just lies within the main character's own family.
There's also another game I looked onto which is advertised on patreon, and they had a disclaimer that everyone was step-related at the beginning of the game (to paraphrase the talking cat "yes, even the twins, theyr'e step-twins. Doesn't have to make sense, magic!")
So unless they just added that in as a precaution and haven't actually drawn the eyes of the Patrearchy, maybe that actually does work?
I'm a historian, too, specializing in queersexual time travel. I was there. The game is actually incredibly inaccurate. You can trust me, I have a twitter, and a degree in strong opinions.
So let’s say that they got some details on the armor incorrect. How does that justify including non-white people in the game? We know that is what they are actually pissed about.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure Vavra checked with historians who 1: were specialists in the period and subject matter, and 2, had degrees he could verify.
gender roles are innacurate
then the liked tweet said
middle ages was a patriarchal society"
so either the middle ages were not patriarchal or they just said stuff was innacurate and linked a post supporting the dev's claim.
this person didnt even read the tweet before citing it as evidence.
Theresa literally saves your life before the opening credits roll. Fuck off with your allegations that the women in the game don't do anything important or badass.
I study history, and from what I've seen so far KCD is pretty accurate.
There are so many SJWs around who just assert that historians agree with them on these subjects, when in fact most historians do not. The same thing can be seen in all of the distortions of colonial America by SJWs.
Sorry, but no. If you read the actual academic literature, no historians do not agree with SJWs at all.
Except the developers got their history wrong. My main sources are Medieval Women by Eileen Power and Medieval Women: Social History Of Women In England by Henrietta Leyser.

So again, am I to believe there were no culture differences throughout the whole Europe in the year 1403.
Apparently we need to make games filled with gay black women because the past was extremely monocultural, sexist, racist and homophobic, and they were excluded from everything for all of history. So we must change things now.
But we also need to fill games with gay black women because the past was extremely multicultural, and they were everywhere and did everything as if they were seasoned world travelers, and everyone loved them, and they were never excluded from anything. So we must keep things the way they were as an “accurate” representation of history.
...They’re insane. These are insane people. Constantly arguing at cross purposes.
Historians are normally people who specialize in researching and cataloging history.
Marxist historians are people who specialize revising history.
armor design is almost entirely inaccurate
Eye pieces are slightly too big, breastplates aren't as shapely as they should be, all bascinets have visor hinges = armor design is almost entirely inaccurate, apparently
At least Shadiversity, a medieval enthusiast seemed to find a lot of the stuff from buildings to weapons and armor pretty accurate to the time period.
I'm still puzzled how the concept of lawlessness and free men, Anarchy, ended up becoming so closely tied to complete authoritarian government control over all aspects of life, Marxism.
I think the only major detail Kingdom Come got wrong was how expensive it was for peasants to save their games in medieval Bohemia.
I used the gamergate time machine, and Brad is correct.
You have to be disabled to be a marxist-anarchist, but you have to be REALLY disabled to be a disabled marxist anarchist.
"The visor eyeholes for the bacinet are a few centimeters too small, so therefore you have to include black people in your game!"
Just start posting pictures of Angus Mcbride and Graham Turner's re-constructive historical artwork and watch them reeeee
OMG where are all the black people?!!
I thought it surely would be that bloated Mr. Potato Head, an absolute joke.
Youtube historians please respond.
As hilarious as this is, it only makes me more frustrated. This is one of the "useful idiots" that's just too dumb to understand that the information he is spreading is complete bullshit, and this is why most prefer to hide behind the "educate yourself" mantra, and yet the narrative persists and ResetEra will likely collect a few more scalps with this sort of shit before we see real pushback.
Historical content try visiting nearby areas in the Balkans today like Kosovo. Women in Albanian Muslim villages don't leave the home or if they do it's only next door in the family hamlet. Also sons never move from home and live with there wives move in. I been to cafe in village where I was the only women to visit ever. I was working on a volunteering position at the time bringing together Serbian children and Albanian from different villages.
could someone who knows how to do this fast please make a "which button do you press" meme (the one where they're contradictions), with "women have always been oppressed" and "KCD is inaccurate because there's no women in power positions"
How is every other SJW disabled? Is there something about being a paraplegic that makes Marxist identity politics appealing? Or is it more like "stubbed my toe yesterday, I'm totally disabled now."
TIL not failing history classes in high school makes you a historian.
So... the middle ages weren't a patriarchal society?
But... now, when women can do whatever they want, including running entire countries, is a patriarchal society?
It's almost like they can't keep track of their fabricated "reality".
What is it with feminists and constantly labelling women as "bad ass". Announcing something without showing it is just poor writing.

You know whats funny... the patriarchal society part. I thought we were living in a patriarchal society these days according to sjws. Maybe thats why they think women can play important roles in the past?
KC:D employed a number of historians to work on the game. Also, the armor is fine, if not a little off in its design.
Shouldn't the SJW's reply just be "REEEEEEE!"?
Jesus christ, who bitches about inaccuracies in games? Hedgehogs aren't blue, but I still played Sonic.
why do these fucking losers care so much? Just don't play the fucking game.
hahahahahahaha the comedy writes itself,my fucking sides
What historians are actually debunking the game? I keep hearing them talk about it, but they never link to one...And when they do link to one, it's just some guy who has no actual degree or experience in the field and read about africa on the back of a cereal box.
People's obsession with character's being "badass" is nauseating
Let's say I didn't give a shit about politics or sjw's or any of the stuff were on this sub for.
Is the game really worth my $60?
What a burn, such arguments /s
To be honest the guy quoted cited his sources at the bottom, which were from an actual academic.
Of course it wasnt really abig difference. What he objected was that the Codex of the game didnt mention that women ladies would also defend the castle from invaders if their husband was away.
It is true though that alot of armchair historians came out of the woodwork proclaiming their supreme knowledge of Bohemian history, wityhout of course being able to cite a single source backing them up.
This is what gets me, they didnt do it because they knew better than Vavra. They did it because "too many whites".......
Come on dudes.......
Yeah shame the game's a buggy mess
Man that sort of conversation sucks. Social media makes it way too easy for people to do that shit because it obfuscates all the body language that comes with not backing up your arguments then running away.

Why are we still blaming video games, Polygon?
Rightly, Kowert is more scathing in her chapter on sexism and misogyny in games, pointing to research that shows a link between male games players and sexist opinions, though she notes that games are not the only cultural conduits within which these ideas are rooted. She also picks out the vital stat that 63 percent of girls and women who play online games have reported experiencing sexist behavior from other players.
(this passage misrepresents the book an ignores that the author also presented opposing studies - see my comment in the thread)
Does playing a video game steeped in a cycle of kill-die-kill have an impact on players? Almost certainly. Arguing that an overwhelmingly violent game doesn't impact its users is akin to arguing that any game with a singular drive or message can't inspire or evoke changeViolence in video games, like any other aspect of gaming, most certainly can impact a gamer.

"During the formative years of their sexuality, they're developing ideas about women and they are being influenced by GTA5. Meanwhile, schools are outright ignoring these games. We're setting these kids adrift and not really giving them the support that they need in order to process these problematic representations in a healthy way."
goes on to say
"I played GTA5 for the study, and it often felt laborious. I admire it as a technical accomplishment, but riding around in cars and shooting people is simply not my bag."As a cultural force, I believe it can be damaging, but that is based on instinct, not evidence. I felt it was a means to dialogue with the students about the most pressing social issues of our time."

Whether or not this game is good isn't the point.
The point is that the Devs made the game the way they wanted and told everyone else to fuck off. As it should be.
It’s actually kind of sad how hard game journalists tried to slander and misrepresent the game, if anything all they did was provide free exposure that this game exists.
The Wolfenstein franchise doesn't look very popular any more.
It's actually a pretty good game so far.
Those all-time peaks
Ha ha, holy shit
I don't really pay attention to steam player counts so I'm surprised kc:d is so much higher than wolfenstein. Bodes well for warhorse studios.
Is 69k peak 'successful?
I mean... Why the fuck should a Czech developer kneel before some spoiled american children?
This looking down while riding a ridiculous high moral horse is also actually one of the main reasons why the view of the west being the ideal is dwindling in ex-communist countries

I'm honestly amazed at just how many people i follow on twitch that are streaming it, its fucking huge.
Holy hell that peak difference though, its slaughtering the other games, god damn
70k all time
Get fucking dunked on, Vavra the unbroken
Edit: picking this game up now, time to be a Polish serf
Is this game any good? I watched some streams yesterday and it seemed pretty boring to watch.
It's had great exposure on Twitch from all the top variety streamers, the reality is that most gamers don't give a shit about what the ideologues that have infested games journalism and push their politics have to say about games.
The game itself is pretty good, it's not without issues though however considering the budget, considering the scope of the game it's impressive what they accomplished. A kickstarter game that I personally think delivered.
*Was just checking the wiki to find the budget they had and came across the nonsense right in the header...
The game was subsequently criticised for racism as the develooers chose to use the excuse of "historical accuracy" in order to justify promoting a European society without people of colour.
Spelling mistakes, no sources, it seems like someone is butthurt.
*update, someone removed that entry already.
eurojank slav simulator
That's a lot of people playing it.
Yeah, but is it any good?
the game is fun, but sometimes it freezes for 2-4 seconds, this goes on my nerves.... the fps don't sink or anything, it just stops...
I'm buying it after this fucking course ends.
Man, it's almost as if SJW's don't actually purchase and play the games they claim to want.
Are these numbers for real? Because if they are, then PC gaming is fed up with SJWs to a far greater degree than I think any of us have thought.
I'd be playing it if my pc didn't decide that it pissed on it's parents grave and refused to cooperate with it.
This game is a larper dream come true. I'm having a lot of fun in it after some performance tweaking, like turning off vsync and stuff like that. It makes me glad it is going well for them.
Really tempted to buy KCD for my XBox One, but I think I'll wait until I save up enough cash to build myself a gaming PC.
Besides, by that time they'll probably have patches and mods to fix some of the bugs and problems.
Really great game. Never played a rpg that really put me in the game like this. It can be really frustrating at times as the gameplay is unique and your choices matter. Also the difficulty starts hard and becomes easier as you learn. I really hated and was anger about the lock-picking and now I love it.
After playing it for quite some time It's apparent that the game is totally apolitical, as in doesn't reflect anything from today's politics.
But apparently that was enough to piss if all the gaming journalists and twitter snowflakes.
Glad it's doing good.
No suprise at all.
The only way this game could have tanked if it would have been super broken at release. That didnt happen.
Social Justice once again advertised for their opposition. Like they always do.
What pressure from sjw? Can I get a quick rundown pls.

wait people were shitting on this game? i completely missed this "pressure"
This proves, AGAIN as it has so many times before that the best and only response to these idiots is to double down. They are the pinnacle of "The vocal minority". For every one of the screeching and threatening a boycott (Like they would have played the game anyways). there are 5 more people learning about your game, and happy as hell that you are standing your ground against these nutjobs.
How long till people start contacting SJW news sources asking them to slander their game and developers as racist?
You had one job...
I wonder if this shit will make these idiots shut up for awhile, the more they bemoan a game for not bending to their will, the more people are going to buy it BECAUSE they flipped out.
It's the best publicity ever. Unlike games like subnautica that did bend to their will and lost customers as a result.
Subnautica could have experienced this kind of growth, but they decided to bend over.
Just a shame that it seems to have some AI and scripting issues.
Umm did I miss something? How in the literal dirty back door fuck is wolfenstien an SJW game?
Anyone else hate this word with a passion? I hope it doesn't become popular.
Man this title is full on shitpost.
What should be taken into consideration here is that all the other games on the list are pretty popular on consoles too, while Kingdom Come is pretty much the definition of a PC game.
The most damaging thing they could have done is be objective with this game, but these people can't help but lose their shit and provide free publicity. Devs not bending over also helped.
Im out of the loop and cant find anything on line. What are those kale eaters pissed off about now?
It had more people playing the day it came out than all those games put together. Well on Steam at least.
"pressure" I'm gonna be honest here, was there ever any real pressure? Aside from this sub, I've seen no real backlash against the game. Most big sites don't give to shits about the weird details sjws berate about.
Also, hopefully I'm not the only one waiting for reviews before playing this game. Just cuz the dev's don't give in to leftist "pressure" doesn't mean it's an instant purchase.
Wow that is a LOT of people playing that game.
It's janky, buggy, and awesome. They should put out a free demo, it's the kind of game that is weird and different, some people like it and some not, the only way to know for sure is by trying it.
Never yield to the mentally ill.
Say what you want about Subnautica's Dev's, but fuck you if you think it's a bad game. It's fucking awesome.
TNC is just garbage. 16k peak is laughable but it's still far more than it deserves. A broken game with stupid story, barely 10 hours of gameplay and no replay value whatsoever. Blatant cash grab, resting on the shoulders of the legendary franchise who started a revolution in gaming. It's frankly infuriating.
It's the same thing that let to the current state of the Star Wars franchise. Greedy corporate fucks vomiting half-assed trash and slapping the famous name on top (both movies and games) just because they know that it will make money thanks to the once legendary name. They rely on that and they know that for a little longer even if they put a label "Star Wars" on a literal pile of dog shit, it will sell. So they'll just bleed it dry while they still can. Then they'll just throw it in the gutter and go cash in and cannibalize another franchise...
It's insulting to compare the deserved success of KCD to these vastly inferior other products. Granted, it has its flaws, technical bugs and glitches, a bit too "realistic" and frustrating at times, can't expect wonders from a small studio with a limited budget. But KCD is a breath of fresh air in a stagnating copy/paste market of Call of Duty clones and infinite indie garbage, an original idea with many innovations and most important of all - a developer who fucking cares about the quality of his game and about his audience. So yea, maybe it's not the next CD Projekt Red... yet... But they have my vote of confidence. After all CDPR didn't become the titan that it currently is over night, it took them 2 good games and one brilliant masterpiece of perfection to get them where they are. Sooo... looking forward to Kingdom Come 3. ;)
What the fuck is wrong with Wolfenstein II?
Yeah, call Wolfenstein sjw because it had dumb marketing, way to use low sjw tactics like that.
lol, it's Wolfenstein. Only americans get their panties in a bunch over killing nazis, it's laughable. Why not denounce your grandpa as well?
What the heck is "Getwokenstein" and how is the game Wolfenstein 2 at all comparable to Kingdom Come: Deliverance?
Honestly, I don't follow all the drama in video game news as others, but that makes no sense to me and the title of this post seems as cringeworthy as the content often ridiculed here.
Edit: Downvote all you want, but would be nice if someone actually answered the question.
Til that apparently Wolfenstein is considered SJW game because of one to tounge in cheek marketing slogan that people drew political connections out of because everything must be connected to politics in some way. Seriously acting like snowflakes just like the sjw
This stat doesn’t mean anything unless you can somehow find similar information for the other consoles on which Wolfenstein was released.
Whoa ho ho those are some hefty numbers, wow. Is it free to play? That could explain the numbers, I mean how doesn't like a free game?
Holy balls this is a full priced game lol. I didn't know people were so fired up about a medieval battle simulator. What's so good about the game? Looking at it it does sound cool, open world RPG set in historical medieval Europe. I thought it was like Chivalry or something, basically just multiplayer hack to death type game.
That's a major success already, wow. Did it just come out?
That's actually really impressive.
You think he meant what he said at all? You think he applauded GDC for enabling slander of his name and legacy? You might just need rest man, I think you sprained something.
"Whenever there's an apology in favor of my side, it must be 100% genuine."
Honestly if I were Nolan I wouldn't have given such a PR response lol.
He should have thrown the GDC under the bus and made some comment about actions they could do with award statue if they were deciding I shouldn't have it based on false accusations.
The reason he can't defend himself, but the women who worked at his company have been consistently leaping to defend him, is that you fuckers have created the opposite of the "mansplaining" and shit you claim is oppressing 50 gorillion women every day, a situation where only a woman can criticize anything about these issues, because if a man does, that makes you treat him as even guiltier automatically.

May I interject? (as I know Nolan & worked at Atari then). The issue not NB’s statement. It’s that people are viciously twisting it to mean something else. I/my ‘Atarian Sisters’ will be doing more interviews this week in his support. Hope they’ll be read/shared.
Yes, Nolan was very gracious. But it’s unfortunate that he/my Atari family have become scorned, sacrificial lambs to the #MeToo effort, which we ALL support. To take our reality out of context to deliberately portray us as ‘abused’ and ‘abusers’ does REAL VICTIMS a disservice.
what does rami even do besides spew horseshit on twitter and travel the world spewing horseshit for money?
I swear, it's like watching flat-earthers debate at this point.
They make the same argument about Dr. Matt Taylor, whom they harassed and smeared because he was wearing a shirt they didn't like when he landed a spacecraft on a comet.
We didn't do anything wrong, because he was forced to apologize... uh... totally voluntarily apologized.
At this point, whatever "respect" Ismail ever garnered is bollocks.
He's right.Nolan shouldn't be complimenting GDC for enabling allegations that are bullshit, as substantiated by numerous Atari employees.
I'm surrreeeee that's what he meant.../s
So weird that someone without any grace would fail to recognize it in others.

Did Rami, at any point, clear up what Bushnell was supposed to have 'done wrong' ?
I just wish these people got no attention, no one posted their shit here, people stopped following them, ignore them - let the idiots battle in their own little echo chamber and slowly eat themselves.
Rami is a known idiot, bested only by Manveer and Gies.
Feb 1st... when was it that the women that worked with him defended him, and the era in which they worked at Atari? Flat out stating that nobody was pressured to do anything they did not want to, you can even see them reconnecting on facebook over this and sharing fond memories about that time. I mean fuck.
When the women themselves are saying it was something they all have fond memories of... maybe it's time to take a step back and stop... mansplaining. :p
