Do you not see how catastrophically irresponsible it is to encourage people to drive drunk/high/fucked up? And then also pick up their phone to call you?

@adoggo: Has Kamiya ever been in an equivalent situation where a content creator/community partner of Platinum tried to interact with him, and Kamiya exploded on him and accused him of discriminatory behavior, perhaps racism or sexism? I don't know much about Kamiya or Platinum.

Guild Wars 2 drama discussion from 35:00 to 53:00, if you'd like to avoid it. Nothing really new here from the Beast crew - mostly just choosing to ignore the very real possibility that the fired developer's past behavior contributed to the 'sudden' firing, in favor of the "ArenaNet is slave to evil gamers" narrative. Rest of the episode was good!

I was expecting something of a train wreck going in, after all these comments, but the crew did a pretty decent job of discussing the Guild Wars 2 drama without immediately going to extremes in either direction.

Giant Bomb's news section is mostly based off quick skims through Kotaku (et al), which is unfortunate in this case, as Schrier's article - among others - tried to spice things up by excluding Price's history of toxic behavior in order to punch up the 'angry mob' angle. It makes for a more exciting, but less accurate, story if you focus almost exclusively on the anger that the community felt at seeing one of their favorite content creators belittled and baselessly accused of sexism.

But the truth of the matter was that, as boring as it may sound, this was not ArenaNet being pushed to capitulate to an angry misogynist fanbase. Price has a history of unwarranted hostility and disturbing behavior. Through omission, various news sites have crafted a more incendiary and socially relevant tale, but it doesn't reflect the reality of the situation.

I have some issues with the way Kotaku (and others) like to spice up their stories, and I wish the Bombcast would lean a little less heavily on their articles for their news segments in light of that, but in the end it's just a small qualm that affects me a bit more than most as someone who actually plays Guild Wars 2. That's my two cents!

I played a little Fallout Shelter when it first came out and it just didn't click with me. However, last summer I redownloaded it and I've been checking in with it almost daily ever since. It feels more like a Fallout game now than it did at launch - there are a staggering number of quests to complete, each one has just enough dialogue and story to at least give it a light narrative structure, and through quests you can unlock some of the more unique dwellers and gear.

The "True Sons" as an enemy faction? Is Ubisoft really going to tackle American right-wing extremist militia culture, or wuss out again like Far Cry 5?

It's probably going to be a "Sons of Liberty" style situation. Lots of very typical "evil patriot" stuff that steers clear of social issues. "AMERICA IS WEAK...WE WILL MAKE IT STRONG!" and so forth.

Four raids and seven tiers ago, our dev team brought forth on this platform, a new Division game, conceived on the Snowdrop engine, and dedicated to the proposition that all cosmetics are found in loot boxes.

STALKER is all about exploring the atmosphere and isolation of the Zone. I don't truck with any of these attempts to shoehorn loud, guns-blazing multiplayer into the setting.
