Yeah, after losing Titanfall exclusivity it’s really hard for me to justify an Xbox without a significant price cut.
Nobody has a problem with people having their opinions. People have issues when other people try to force those values onto them, restricting their lives and stripping their rights.
My first reply was saying why I thought that it wasn’t a situation similar to the Mozilla CEO. My first reply was totally in line with your comment.
I will apologize for the martyr bit though, I don’t know if you think that. I just see so many people that act as if the Mozilla CEO is an innocent victim.
I thought they made some nice changes, the AR was especially great. Things can’t always stay the same.
You literally compared this to Mozilla in your first sentence. In fact, you brought it up out of nowhere. Please stop treating the Mozilla CEO like a martyr, he wasn’t a good person.
As far as Marty goes, I expect this had more to do with Bungie thinking that they could finish up the score themselves and save some money. People get laid off like crazy in this industry, it’s never good to hear.
The Mozilla CEO was fired because people disagreed with him. He exists to be a leader, if people don’t like him, he will be a poor one. That’s why he was fired. Having personal views is fine, but people also get to criticise them. That’s how free speech works.
In the case of GaymerX, it isn’t just a convention for LGBTQ people, it welcomes everyone. It exists to create a safe space, and that’s something that’s needed because many other conventions (PAX) aren’t doing that. I don’t think they are looking for unequal treatment.
Aftermath is very similar. It looks a little dated, but it’s super fun to play and works really well on the touch screen. On top of that, it’s basically Dead Nation.
I think there is a difference in the group of people and the individual. Either way, this isn’t really something that can be enforced but it is definitely something to criticise. The decision to make these shirts essentially told people that they have no right to be offended and they should stop whining about rape. Thats a poor decision on PA’s part.
Read your comment. Read my comment. One person wearing a shirt that offends you is one thing, a group of people wearing shirts that exclude you from a community and basically say “Stop whining about rape, I think it isn’t a big deal.” is totally different.
How many years have they been doing this? How many times has Mike said something terrible? It is one thing to say that someone is a normal person in the case of the Flappy Bird dev (insanely successful overnight) but Mike has had plenty of chances. Hopefully he changes, but his actions have hurt people and he fails to recognize that outside of laughing at them.
