I nearly lost my shit when Jeff said "it's a really good tribute to this mech you're performing".

Good god, I'm dead.

@heatdrive88: Of course the conversation needs to be blunt and out in the open. I was specifically referring to your comment that unless organizers can guarantee the safety of their attendees in this specific capacity then they shouldn't organize these events - which I think is actually a very difficult thing to officially enforce because of the very shitty and sleazy nature of how these people perpetrate these repugnant acts.

Yes, that I absolutely agree and can get behind. I guess at the outset, I'm just very cautious at how the conversation tends to be silenced or forgotten.

@heatdrive88: It's very much a human nature thing more so than a corporate planning thing. The first and only real step organizers can take is ban alcohol at their events, but that still won't protect people from potential harm that can come from "after parties" that happen off-premises.

I don't disagree with you - but I don't believe that banning alcohol is the "only" step. Maybe from the organizers point of view yes, of course that's at least one possibility.

But then to at least move towards a positive direction from the very "human nature thing" that you speak of? That requires the open, clear, undistilled conversation that I'm asking for - about the kinds of sexual harassment and rape that this culture has enabled - and will continue to enable if we do nothing but tiptoe around it, or worse yet - remain silent about. And that's something that should come from everyone, not just organizers.

@heatdrive88: Shocking to hear the crew dance around rape.

Absolutely. Say exactly what it was, and what it became - and don't let it be forgotten for what that environment and culture enabled.

I actually really love this game's whimsy in a way, but hoooooly fuck do I ever hate the premise and subject matter it's sitting on top of.

Real talk - until the industry it can prove that it can hold corporate parties and/or social spaces at large scale events that can be safe and responsible environments from things like sexual harassment, it can honestly stay largely the hell away.

As much as I can appreciate the designed details of this game, it is still simply so, so ugly to look at from a UI perspective that I just can't get behind it.
