Wanted to say that the kind of downplaying that's going on in some of these comments is a big part of why abusers are able to stay in the game industry--when you try to come forward and everyone hems and haws about your account, eventually you get whittled down and you get tired of trying at all. I didn't see the pattern until I experienced abuse in an industry. It's how Merritt remains surrounded and supported by well-meaning people who bring a good look via association, and eventually gets on other platforms. It's how the allegations eventually become hard to look up. It's part of the process that allows abusers to thrive, and it sucks to see it happening live.
The amount of people she's hurt who won't talk about it anymore is astounding compared to what you're able to see with a Google search. And victims of abuse certainly aren't gonna be looking toward the GB community for help, now.
It especially hurts seeing people swooping in just to say they see nothing wrong with this.

@dcav: I haven't looked into anything about the original Eliza yet, but yeah! The app in the game is named after the original Eliza, and it's mentioned by the characters. Thanks for the link!

Thanks y'all! So glad people are going to listen to the music too!

@donpureevil hell yeah! One of my first finds in the blog-digging glory days.

I cannot comfortably watch this video! And it's not just the camera speed. I wonder if they didn't see the choppiness to the extent it's happening in the capture.

Thanks for the love on the OST y'all. I've been subscribing to GB for 5 years now, so I'm always on pins and needles when a thing I did the music and sound for is getting quick-looked. Glad everyone likes it.

I think the locking off of content if a player only completes bosses on 'simple mode' is worth mentioning in the review. Makes you wonder if it's worth including an easier mode at all if you're planning to lock content away from those who use it. I know this has gotten plenty (some would say way too much) talk elsewhere.

It's a really fantastic video game. But you should be down for repetition and perfect execution.

Vinny is right. If Dan is choosing to trade his shines, that includes the red shine he just got. Though, I will say it should have been outlined in the rules and then it wouldn't be a discussion. Dan loves crafting rules, I'm surprised it wasn't!

Good to see Vinny flexing those parenting skills, dealing with childishness.

I really hope they don't give up on Beast in the East, though from the start it's been a very intimidating undertaking that might end up taking almost as long as GB has been around as a company. I remember Alex being excited that Kiwami was set to release right when they planned to get done with 0. But if you're going to back down, I suppose it's a good time to do so.

Thanks for your correction, Vinny. It's more important than ever to keep the volume high on these issues and be the person in your group of friends, family or acquaintances (or really anyone) to call out that kind of behavior, to not stay silent. That's why the Beastcast is the best podcast on the Internet.
