No multiplayer in either of this year's Assassins' Creed games.

Looks like Ubisoft finally got the message. It was fun in the beginning......

I'm against their suppression, advocation, and hand waving of several Social Justice Warrior figures and "controversies". Have been for some time. This Quinn cunt really did me a favor and gave me that out. Kotaku Is absolute shit at this point. I was very patient.

Read my tweets over; seems clear enough to me. Replies, retweets, and faves show people get it, too. Perhaps you don't know the whole deal?

Not liking Kotaku is fine.

"Cunt" is kind of overboard.

I'm not gonna police my own vocabulary. She's a bitch. Kotaku's Stephen Truchillo or whatever is a coward dick, too, covering for her and his writer. But yeah, cunt. It's very contextual.

He's covering for her and his writer. He waved off the accusations with a shitty article without even a bolded headline, basically saying "nuh uhh". It was callous. I would amend myself and say he's covering his writer really, since his dick puts Kotaku's already dubious rep in the shitter. InternetAristocrat breaks that element down in his last vid.

No idea who Quinn is because Kotaku UK has a mostly different staff but the only issue I have with Kotaku is the comment section. I'm not going to fly into a rage about inequality but the other day a female reporter for Kotaku did some barely VG related news story and the comments were ridiculing her. The story exactly above was just as barely VG related but by a male reporter and the commenters didn't mind at all.
I've also seen various types of bigotry run wild in the comments of various articles but what really gets to me is the seething rage anytime some female reporter brings up anything even vaguely pro female.
Article: Maybe women should wear more clothes in game.
Response: Argh, shut up you feminist dyke! I hate you! Die, feminazi!
Me:

Don't think I see sexism as a uniquely male thing. The diet Coke ads are incredibly sexist towards guys, in my opinion. It's just Kotaku comments and the internet as a whole take it to an Olypmic level.

I never got what the issue was with "Social Justice Warrior" hate. It's like there's some internet rule against actually wanting to defend someone or raise a certain point about certain situations.

Just did a search and see the Quinn in question is alleged to have slept with a Kotaku reporter for positive press for an indie game. That's it? I mean, yeah, that's unprofessional behaviour if it's true but it's not something to make a song and dance about.

If we catch Miyamoto in bed with Major Nelson, THEN we have a scandal.

You probably should. The game industry is being accused of sexism. Using the C word does nothing but prove the critics right.

Strongly thinking of retiring my Drakulbites Gamertag. So if a name you don't recognise pops up sometime soon, it's probably me.

I spent far too long trying to put in new names to find they're either taken or a single letter too big. Finally got two in mind that fit. If they are taken, after having already tried 50 others that were taken, I may scream.

It doesn't prove them right, unless the message is people say cunt time to time. I am not sexist, you guys know that. I don't care if some random SJW doesn't.

I really want to know what's so bad about standing up for someone or something. Being called a white knight or social justice warrior as if it's a bad thing is just bizarre.

If we catch Miyamoto in bed with Major Nelson, THEN we have a scandal.
If it were her cousin, it would have been A-OKAY!

I will explain it all in a lil while. These people are the worst thing to happen to gaming since Jack Thompson. It's not about standing up for anything.

Have you been following the Anita Sarkeesian/Kotaku/SJW/Thunderf00t/MundaneMatt/Jordan Owen stuff? It's a lot of content and back and forth over the last two years that would be tricky to condense into a TLDR version for you. I will try, though.

She has been speaking out about how females are portrayed in video games, yadda yadda. She had some pretty harsh things said to her and that is where I stopped.

Who gives a flying fuck. We will still play games and if there is something that turns us away from a title, we will most likely not pick it up and play. Hatred from either side on this is silly and a waste of time.

Your apathy is much appreciated.

I just sent Drak a nice long yet short version of what's up and why it's important. If only it was as easy as people not playing what they don't like. It's more than that.

But if you stopped at the tippy top of this, then it's cool. Carry on.

I did, know why? It has zero impact on what I choose to and not to play. Never listen to reviews either, or self-righteous fuckwits with blogs that think they are the UBER of all things gaming.

Please though, if it that dire, elaborate.

Take your time, no probs.

You're good, drave, keep doing what you're doing. A customer's right to choose with their wallets is paramount. I am not against that. It's chill. If you're interested enough, look up Jordan Owen's vids on the matter the last year or so.

It isn't my wallet that I choose with, I go with what game entices me most or seems to be the most entertaining. If someone wants to get all righteous about the industry, then no one should even purchase consoles due to their being produced mainly from precious minerals mined under slave-like conditions and their manufacturing plants behaving the same way and also using OIL to make said plants run and exploit the workers.

But we will still play.

I mean, you are choosing with your money. You either buy it or you don't, right? Or do you get games free?

You also seem to have some issue with people being passionate about the industry, which in turn smells like the old 'it's just games' mindset. This is fine, but if you're not interested in the discussion, I think you can better spend time somewhere else. Not excluding you, just never understood the need to say how uninterested you are in something.

Gaming still has a lot of growing up to do. It's rife with every negative aspect of society. Sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, stereotypes. Not just the fans but the industry as a whole.

That's true. The SJWs aren't the answer, though.

Is that your response to my PM or do you still need time on that. I understand it was long.

Just a general comment. I have actually been wondering for a while how you feel about the portrayal of black guys in fighting games. Doesn't it bug you that every black guy in a fighting game is either a thug, a boxer or some kind of music/dance man?

If the latest issue of Game Informer is to be believed, then Unity is “new-gen” exclusive and Rogue is “last-gen” exclusive due to the fact that ACR is meant to be a go-between to bridge the story gap between ACIII and AC4: Black Flag.
