I probably wouldn't try to convince people that journalists are trying to destroy Youtubers, by reporting on the things Youtubers say, and to only trust me while I upload incorrect information I have to quickly remove. Than again, I don't live in a conspiracy filled pretend land where everyone is out to get me (except for my legion of fans who would likely still find a way to praise me if I live-streamed myself murdering someone).

Mass Effect: Andromeda's Models/Animations - What Went Wrong? Apparently most people didn't focus on the logical talking point of an over reliance on scanning tech and management not communicating well and instead focused on a thing pretty much all AAA games do (outsourcing), ranting about the women being ugly, using it as reasons to justify threatening developers, and trying to make clickbait articles or posts out of Liam's video (the same guy who I mentioned was lying about a Kotaku article he didn't read a few weeks ago).

This week in the news; a look at the past 30 years of making games, best of April Fools, Final Fantasy 15, layoffs at The Escapist, Nintendo fires employee after she received months of harassment then makes themselves look worse, the struggle to bring back Baldur's Gate after 17 years, a look at bizarre and potentially dangerous video game ad campaigns, God of War 4 using Norse mythology, Matt Lees discusses future need for legislation for how video games collect and use data on human behavior, crafting a legendary ending for Uncharted 4, voice acting panel with Jennifer Hale, Adam Harrington, Sarah Elmaleh, and Brian Sommer, 80 Days/Sorcery studio talks about why they made their scripting engine open source, the blind gamer with a Killer Instinct, and more. Final Fantasy XV Check Out the Final Fantasy 15 Deluxe and Collector's Editions Final Fantasy 15 Director Talks Demo Frame Rate, Resolution, DLC, More Hands-On With Final Fantasy 15's New Demo Final Fantasy 15 Mobile Tie-in Game Justice Monsters Five Coming Soon Final Fantasy 15 Gets It Own Full-Length Feature Film Final Fantasy 15 Anime Launches Today Final Fantasy 15 Director Clarifies 10 Million Sales Comments Final Fantasy 15 looks like a game that has not thrown out one single plot, theme, or gameplay idea during its entire 10 year development, and it's kind of awesome. After FFXIII it is nice to see a party that seems to act like humans and who don't seem to hate each other. A thread about this was created here Layoffs at The Escapist This comes shortly after Game Trailer's shutdown, a site which Defy Media was also the parent company of. Since the site has long lost their talent and both they and Gameranx started to pay a guy who used to stalk and harass Dodger (PressHeartToContinue) and other Polaris people, according to both her and TotalBiscuit (and their screenshots), and who then went on to stalk and pry into the private lives of other people, the sooner this site dies the better. Phil Spencer explains why Halo 5 probably won't come to PC Starting today, anyone can turn their Xbox One into a dev kit for free Some thoughts from Campster (Errant Signal) on the feature. Don't Expect Xbox One and a Half, Xbox Head Says Remedy listens to YouTubers, makes Quantum Break's licensed jams optional A Remedy for Clichés: Sam Lake on Quantum Break Uncharted 4 "Raises the Bar," Quantum Break Dev Says Uncharted 4 Interview: Naughty Dog on Crafting a Legendary Ending Uncharted 4's Ending Will Be Divisive Uncharted 4 Lead Designer Has No Doubt that Naughty Dog’s Next Game Will “Get Even More” Out of PS4 Mass Effect Andromeda plot slips out in a survey That makes you sound like the villains, but I doubt they would do something that interesting. Mass Effect: Andromeda Gameplay Footage Emerges, Shows Jetpack Feature Nintendo Employee 'Terminated' After Smear Campaign Over Censorship, Company Denies Harassment Was Factor Jim Sterling wrote about Nintendo’s Corporate Culture in response. Nintendo has been aware of her harassment over decisions she had nothing to do with and has only referred to threats, slander, and private information being shared by neo nazi websites as being "criticism". Gamers Flood Baldur’s Gate Expansion with Negative Reviews After It Introduces a Transgender Character The same people and reactionary websites will complain about censoring a developer's vision due to them having their game localized, complain about censoring a developers vision with Overwatch because the developer agreed with feedback, and when a developer puts in exactly what they want, with no feedback, then they should never have been allowed to work on a game because what they wanted wasn't what angry reactionaries wanted. There have been a lot of reviews by people who have never played the game given their time indicator or likely ones who have never even played a Baldur's Gate game based on some complaints, people using out of context examples of writing that make perfect sense in context, people who don't know that Beamdog was founded by one of the founders of Bioware and their former lead programmer saying they have no experience with these kind of games, people who don't know how D&D spells work (I never understood why so many people like to pretend that they know D&D rules), and obviously people that don't want transgender or gay people in their games (possibly finishing it with a line about bugs so they don't sound too hateful). Because this isn't something many larger sites will review these assholes will make finding reliable information about the game more difficult as reviews and google searches are now filled with spam, youtubers making hot take videos where they go out of the way to show that they don't know what they are talking about (and some admit they haven't played the game), and sites dedicated to catering to toxic demographics. Before the reactionaries arrived there were complaints of a lot of bugs, some that required the game to be reset, mod incompatibility, the usual poor path finding common for the engine, and the multiplayer not working, as well as the more mixed reception to UI changes (a lot are really nice and helpful changes but the game just doesn't look right). If you are interested in the game here are reviews by people who actually played it and hopefully more detailed in depth reviews will follow soon, positive or negative, to balance out the spam. It might be an amusing forum game to find one NPC in random games, screenshot a line of dialogue, and then review the game as a 0 or a 10 based on whatever insane reaction you can create from it. Opinion: The Siege of Dragonspear drama and the video game community Katherine Cross has written about this Rocket League Basketball Is Coming Soon Take an in-depth look at Total War: Warhammer's Vampire Counts Guitar Hero Live developer hit with layoffs ahead of 'restructuring' Sword Coast Legends Dev Shuts Down, But Xbox One and PS4 Versions Still Coming Players Feeling Abandoned After Strategy Game RUSE Removed From Steam Gears of War 4 Dev Talks Beta, Split-Screen Confirmed The Division's first raid detailed Check the article for a little information on the update or watch the video. The Division Getting New Weekly In-Game Challenge Series The Dark Souls 3 speedrun world record is already under two hours Escape From Tarkov combat footage is intense and Russian Etrian Odyssey V ‘Character Creation’ trailer Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture PC Confirmed, Coming Soon The immediate response to this was a man desperately trying to not understand how the world or game development works and serves as a reminder to why I include articles and videos about game development, culture, and history in the hopes of less people being this guy in the future.
