How RimWorld’s Code Defines Strict Gender Roles An interesting look at the game's code and how societal and personal bias can potentially lead to effecting the content of procedurally generated games, either intentionally or unintentionally, made more interesting by the developer's angry reaction in the comment section. The rational part of it being explaining that a part of the system is the way it is due to being in an early state and a problem that was fixed with a recent patch. The rest involves talking about how he came to conclusions based on gay and bisexual people he knows or knew (which would imply that other parts of the code have nothing to do with bugs or an earlier build and saying that fits perfectly with the point of the article), complaining about journalism, saying that they didn't ask him questions then saying they did but he didn't agree to the way they do interviews, not wanting to be interviewed unless he had full editorial control over it (no site or news organization will ever do or agree to this unless they are incompetent or desperate), and calling the article a hit piece (none of the many journalists or developers I saw sharing this did so acting like it was an attack on the dev or saying not to buy the game, at least not until they saw his response which then lead to them looking at past things he's said and done). I didn't see the developer in a negative light from reading the article, as the article is just a natural thing to be expected of almost anyone developing a game like this. Even the developer seems to be saying he overreacted when I last looked. Rimworld’s system for sexuality is both a work in progress, and fair game for discussion ‘Battlefield 1’ Offers a Unique Emotional History of the First World War Four Long Lost Kirby Games Found At Auction Why I love physical videogame maps Fighting Game Locations in Real-Life A Look Back On Metal Gear Rising's Last Boss, Who Wanted To Make America Great Again I remembered noticing the same thing when I played the game in January.

AJSA Youtube's This Week In Gaming Gaming News Nintendo NX to be released Christmas 2016? YouTube Heroes Explained If you don't want to sort through videos of people misunderstanding things, yelling, or freaking out about the thing that will cause the "death of Youtube" (this month), then the the above video is a good one that actually looks at the system and the ideas that were likely behind it. Jim Sterling also did a good video but it tends to repeat what he has already said about Youtube in a video I shared the last time Youtube was dying, and this talks a bit more into some of the systems behind it.
