While it sets a shitty precedents to pull a DMCA claim because you don't like the person LPing or streaming your game it's still not cool to casually drop the "N" word during a "heated video game moment". As vile as that word is it makes it all the worst given Pewdiepie's context. Again it's still awful to use merely for "shock humor" just because the word is so "taboo" but it's leagues worse to casually use it like it's just a normal insult.

As for the DMCA claim, yeah I totally get not wanting your game associated with a racist. Though what's to stop future claims from being filed against Youtubers who's politics, religious views, or lifestyles companies disagree with? Yeah the Youtuber could fight it and probably win but lawyers are expensive and I assume all but a handful of Youtubers aren't stinking rich from posting content. Sad thing is Youtube has made it abundantly clear they will only go to the bat for the largest of channels that don't really need their help in the first place. Even if you are one of those large channels Youtube will turn its back on you immediately to appease one of its advertisers.

I got the shelf space and Amazon Prime had that deal where you get a discount on new games so why wouldn't I get the physical copy? I have nothing against digital copies but I'll get whatever option is cheaper.

Just can't justify the price. $70 US is just too much especially when the Joycons are fine.

The series is great my only complaint is that there are only six episodes. Funny how taking the piss out of Frank Miller's Daredevil run gave us both The Tick and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

No offense but a Game of Thrones podcast or any current TV show based podcast sounds horrendously dull. This whole post game coverage shit for "prestige TV" has to stop. I blame Chris Hardwick for his Talking Dead/Bad/Saul/Preacher/Badlands crap on AMC.

No unless they fix the boss fights and include Donkey Kong Country Returns. It's not because they are too hard but the bosses have way too many hit points making them tedious instead of challenging.

Godzilla is the best film series discounting the American entries.

People really ought to stop empowering hate groups by calling them Nazis.

How is calling a white supremacist a Nazi empowering?
