Reading the frothing lashback from the social justice left is joyous. They so desperately want the government, corporations and society as a whole to police them it confuses them when they are allowed to make their own decisions.

Bunch of confused kids taught to let women lead while the women secretly want big strong men to take conrrol of their lives and make all their decisions for them.

But they have to keep checking what needs to be policed. None of their ideas come from them. They just plug into the hive mind and spit out the latest "progressive" bullshit.

Jim Sterling wants a new game banned now too, it is a shooter that includes a school as its main terrain. He always takes out the ban hammer when he dislikes something.

They want absolute control over society. Nothing more, nothing less. They want people who stand against them to be suppressed by any means necessary, and those of their ideology to be given absolute free reign.

The first comment

Also, yes, it is 2018. You think people would be more civilized now. Donald TRUMP's minions could create a game where he goes around nuking the world, and oh yeah, it would be on Steam and they'd just let it fly like that.

A person with minimal computer experience could mod Civ 5 to do that right now, assuming the mod doesn’t already exist. These people are shockingly stupid.

Wouldn't it be easier to mod an old civ game to rename Gandhi to Trump? all the nuke spaming code is already there.

given the distinct lack of nuclear apocalypse I think maybe this pot shot falls flat.

Pretty sure that I already saw Civ 3 or 4 mods back in 2015/2016 that added Trump as an optional American ruler/timelord. Since that time, the main mod difference would be "less anti-Trump hysteria in the design of his powerset, more reality-based policies and behavior".

Why do they capitalize the entirety of TRUMP?

That was weird. Most lefties are fine calling him Drumph as if it’s the most viscous burn in history. I’ve never seen the all caps thing before.

Because Trump is a genius at marketing and that's his brand.

Just goes to show that even people that hate him are susceptible to his persuasion.

POTUS is an acronym maybe they think TRUMP is as well, they are both 5 letter have a T, U, and P in them that makes them 60% the same especially since they mean the same thing right now. They could be confused, or maybe they don't understand the proper way to use capitals in words but that must wrong after all they are journalists they know how to use the English language. (me I'm some idiot with a keyboard and internet access so have probably butchered part of this grammatically)

GOG is growing and Valve just gave them a gift of new exclusive market. They realized it and started backtracking fast.

Sale going on right now! Support GOG, and try some old games for your own sanity.

Yup, GOG is my primary source. I love that I can share the hard copies of those games via flashdrive with friends.

no reason to remove games that are "straight up trolling."

illegal? i dont agree with it on the surface but i also see the need for a business to remove shit that will get them taken down, and thus end up actually agreeing with it.

trolling through? you are an internet based company. trolling should be in your blood. in either case sales will determine what your customers really want and if devs see that these, as the leftist would call them, "horrible racist sexist trolling games" are not selling at all and are causing devs who make them to fail... future devs wont make them and the problem is solved by its self.

or you could have these trolling games sell a lot of copies and your mandatory 20% sales to you will make you a bunch of money. you will end up offending people who are perpetually offended in the process though.

I'dk. It's one of the few news sites that I find to be usually neutral and it's not all about political shit. They cover a wide range of stuff. I enjoy it. Open to other sites since it seems to be difficult to find any decent tech news sites

I've got nothing against it. Just find it funny to go full circle to the site that got originally Out-Digged before Digg was out-Reddited before Reddit drove most of us off to Voat.

"Oy vey, shitlibs don't really buy games, do they? They only complain about games. Maybe we should stop catering to them, and hope the good goys will love us back?"

Go fuck yourself Valve, I'll stay with GOG, and what's not on GOG I'll pirate.

Here is the actual link instead of linking our site that discusses articles, to another site that discusses articles, that has a link to the article.

then archive it https://archive.fo/D28QU at least let us get to the content that you want to discuss without jumping through hoops. otherwise I assume the bot will also archive what you linked not what you linked linked (not sure as derram's link isn't pulling anything up for me)
