    The one thing I liked about Force Unleashed is that they scanned the voice actor's face for the character, which felt like a good idea since everyone else was based on the actors that played them in the movies.

    Plus then I keep seeing that guy show up in tv shows and am like, Oh man it is Starkiller! He is on Supergirl right now. Also he voiced Maul and Palpatine in the Clone Wars/Rebels shows, as well as, Solo Spoiler
    Maul in his cameo in the movie

    Well, Very Stupid Park Of My Brain, it’s time to get over it. Epic have confirmed there’s no longer any active development on Unreal Tournament.

    The latest UT, confusingly named simply ‘Unreal Tournament’, began open development in 2014 and progressed with the input of (and maps/modes/mods from) the community in 2014 but was a long way off being whatever ‘finished’ even means for a videogame in the modern age, and hasn’t seen a meaningful update since last summer. So infrequent and undramatic were its updates that we’ve not posted about it for three years.

    Thus, I was more surprised to hear that they’re making another Star Wars film than I was about official acknowledgement that there’s nothing doing with UT any more. Epic have got the colossal Fortnite, they’ve got the much-licensed Unreal engine, and now they’ve got their own Steam rival – UT is, quite simply, no longer where it’s at.

    Biggest Epic cheese Tim Sweeney stopped short of telling Baron Crecente of Variety that UT was cancelled per se, but one does not have to search for much between the lines of a statement like “‘Unreal Tournament’ remains available in the store but isn’t actively developed” to get the gist of things. Indeed, UT is still out there, and free to download to boot, so if by “cancelled” you don’t mean “entirely scoured from existence” then sure, yeah, it’s not cancelled.

    The most charitable view of this is that this guy just happened to not be aware of the discourse at the wrong time (and didn't examine a gif closely enough, which is certainly understandable) but even then he comes off like an asshole in the more general sense, waffling about whether he's a gamergater or not. I'm certainly not gonna lose any sleep over his firing.

    Also he pretended not to know anything about gamergate despite that article where he all but explicitly declared himself a gater. That's ass-covering and it is BAD ass-covering. "I didn't look close enough at this gif and I'm sorry" would have been fine and is probably the truth.

    so someone else wrote that apology tweet

    and CD Projekt Red has its own team

    my takeaway is that is their standard corporate culture over there

    centrists are virtually always right-wingers who don't want to admit it, either to themselves or to whoever they're talking to

    no sympathy here, especially considering what he's waffling about

  • AstharielAsthariel The Book Eater Registered User regular
    Oh well, his excuse is "I am not bigoted, just incompetent!"

    Guess what, if that's the case then you deserve to be fired anyway. I am just glad that this chapter is over and PR managers there will be more respectful in a future.

    Even if I summon up all the credit and sympathy I possibly can for him, it’s still a big enough series of mistakes that I would have almost certainly fired him.

    “I didn’t check the gif”...why not? Checking things is your job. Knowing the meaning of hashtags before you use them is your job. Keeping your finger on the pulse of internet culture is your job. I hate, hate firing people and I can’t see not doing it in this circumstance.

    Kenshi’s official development blog begins as far back as July 2008. Over a decade later and the game is nearly complete, and impressively more popular than ever. According to Steam Charts, on average there’s over a thousand people playing at any given moment – a quiet little cult hit. I remember when it was little more than a game about wandering a vast plain, most likely getting stabbed by the first people you met. Now it has town management, army scale combat, an appropriately clunky post-apocalyptic bionics system and strange alien life both sentient and bestial.


    As its seemingly boundless patch logs suggest, much has changed since Brendy’s look at it last year. Major factions with their own laws rule much of the map, if you allow them to during world generation. There’s a major political aspect to the game, and an alliance with a powerful group can make the difference between getting stomped by bandits every week, or having relatively secure territories. Of course, you can still play the game as a lone wandering sword-for-hire, but you’re unlikely to make as much impact on the world as a trained and well equipped army would.

    people are saying it's definitely rough, but kind of has a dwarf fortress meets mount and blade feel to it

    probably not the best game if you're looking for polish

    He knew exactly what he was doing at every point. He's just desperately trying to save face now that he's unexpectedly suffered consequences.

    For fuck's sake, he claims he didn't know the meaning of #WontBeErased after bragging about appropriating the hash tag in the tweet.

    The only real new information here is that the second tweet was somebody else, which just proves that these attitudes are endemic to the whole organization (as though that wasn't already obvious from the "apologies").

    Yeah his explanations in that article come off as disingenuous bullshit to me. I mean it's sad when people lose their jobs. But he worked hard to lose this one. Trying to cover the incidents by playing coy about knowing anything about Gamergate and as mentioned above, making a joke about the actual prupose of the hashtag in the tweet and then saying you didn't get it. Nah.
    Not buying that at all.
    (and yeah unfortunately it suggests the sentiment is a common one in their office culture)
