It'd be nice to think that!

Dan Golding on The End of Gamers - the idea that women have never been 'Gamers' is suspect, but the point that there's a sea-change coming in their position in the business* is more on-point.

Leigh Alexander: 'Gamers' are over

*or at least, that there's general awareness that things are changing, and so an increasingly vicious pushback on that.

okay so let me try and parse this out

these idiots are butthurt because they paid money for previous ubisoft games in the name of 'innovation' while scorning the fact that they were 'multicutural lectures' aimed at 'degenerates and miscegenators' yet somehow, despite that, managed to appeal to a broad userbase of mainly americans

and now things have gone too far, somehow

also this striking paragraph

Change the villains. It’s not so hard, really. Just change the villains to something more realistic. Islam is on the rise in America, as is the violence of inner city gangs. Are you scared to do so? In the words of Boltair – “To learn who rules you, simply find out who’s not being criticized.”

i assume they mean voltaire but there's apparently a 'furry artist and fursuiter' out there called talliy boltair and this is a gamergate petition so any of the usual assumptions about reality really need to be jettisoned at the first opportunity

heck i've even been an 'oyster pirate' (bizarro gazzara), Tuesday, 30 May 2017 12:09 (one year ago) Permalink

Actually it really gets going after that: "In these times, you must understand that there might be some violent repurcussions if you intend to follow through with your pointless criticism."

Also quotes Voltaire, though quotes him as 'Boltair'

There's a stepped list of things that can be done to fix it, in order of most to least changes, which makes it sounds like bargaining (which it would be if they had any power). So 1) Make the villains black/muslim 2) Keep them as American Christians but throw in some non-whites 3) is a beauty: keep them as white god-botherers but:

Have the villains simply be misguided patriots forced into making their own nation vs. the will of an oppressive over-government, construed of all the people they turn their wrath against in their immediate surroundings. Their brutal physical and sexual violence towards their oppressors will then be explained as a reaction to harsh government policies and taxation, to show that both sides are wrong.

4) is fine fine let it play like that in France, but "You gotta play your market. Change the setting to Canada for America. ... We Americans have so few games to call our own, and we’re tired of losing them to multi-cultural bullshit."

NB: Far Cry 5 is being made by Ubisoft Montreal.

In the words of Boltair is incredible, i didn't skip a beat and assumed this had to be either a video game character (maybe a Transformer?) and/or an alt-right Pepe Twitter person, hero of the continuing Gamergate underground survivors, named after such a character

one year passes...

The Guild Wars community (air quotes) just harassed a female developer (and a male developer who stood up for her) out of a job for being uppity enough to call out what she felt was a gender-related microaggression.

Here is the completely unremarkable exchange that sparked the shitstorm:

Today in being a female game dev:

"Allow me--a person who does not work with you--explain to you how you do your job." https://t.co/lmK0yJWqGB

The gamers cried, a lot: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/8w3q4n/must_be_a_thrill_to_work_with_this_dev/?st=jj9bes2e&sh=7f012da4

The company that makes the game rolled over: https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/comment/586426#Comment_586426

I don't play this game, just noticed a link related to it. This kind of thing probably happens so often that it's become unremarkable.

Dan I., Friday, 6 July 2018 01:46 (five months ago) Permalink

I play a lot of video games--too much, honestly, more than I want to--and I have since I was like 5 years old, and I think it is fucking creepy that "gamer" has become something that can form the core of a person's identity. Gamer culture, such as it is, is fucking fascistic.

Dan I., Friday, 6 July 2018 01:50 (five months ago) Permalink

I dunno. Read through all that and it seems to me like the dev freaked out on him for seemingly no reason. He wasn't being an asshole to her in his reply. And while the shitstorm did bring out a few pretty unfortunate gamergate stereotypes, most replies were just criticizing her for being rude to him instead of engaging in conversation with his points like a normal person would.

Being rude to a customer should definitely get you and your friends fired, every time

El Tomboto, Friday, 6 July 2018 13:00 (five months ago) Permalink

Fair enough, I guess. Just seems like the entire episode would have passed completely unremarked upon if it was a prickly dude who was the dev (think Linus). Instead, thousands of users immediately rallied around the very important cause of getting this woman fired

El Tomboto, Friday, 6 July 2018 14:30 (five months ago) Permalink

most replies were just criticizing her for being rude to him

The problem even with these replies is that the cumulative effect is basically a mob. I can understand someone's impulse on seeing that exchange to want to defend Deroir, but when thousands of people have that same impulse, you end up with a pile-on which is totally out of proportion to the original exchange. I also don't see many people on those threads arguing for the response to be scaled back from 'fire them now!'

jmm, Friday, 6 July 2018 14:43 (five months ago) Permalink

I don’t understand the impulse to defend him at all. He’s a fucking overprivileged adult, he can handle himself. It’s all pathetic.

El Tomboto, Friday, 6 July 2018 14:56 (five months ago) Permalink

Man, I just don't see where he's being over-privileged. He just made a normal-ass, inquisitive response to her (heretofore very thoughtful) run of tweets and for some reason she basically accuses him of mansplaining, subsequently calling him an asshat. He did nothing wrong. She started off wrong and then doubled down.

But I'll stay out of it. I'm not a gamer and I only saw this thread bc we can't choose what boards go on SNA on the mobile app lol.

I also don't see many people on those threads arguing for the response to be scaled back from 'fire them now!'

Didn't see any tweets of that nature, but there were definitely some in the message board thread.

ciderpress, Friday, 6 July 2018 20:56 (five months ago) Permalink

The whole gamergate thing had an element of wanting to consider gaming to be an artform but then refusing to allow it to be critiqued, and campaigning against anyone (or any woman) who dared to do that. Seems like their criticism of her is basically the same, except this time a woman is on the other side of the equation, so they've switched sides too. Maybe that's all that matters.

The moment a dev steps out of line or try to talk back to a player, guess what, they’ll know we got their hands on their throat and we can squeeze any time we like.”

I'm not saying she should have necessarily been fired. And definitely not the poor schlub who tried to stick up for her. But she should have expected something. I very rarely even mention my employer on social media and if I was speaking on their behalf, I sure as shit wouldn't use my account to harrangue an innocent person like that.

In rare agreement with El T here. Grousing yr customers is petty and childish but OTOH who gives a shit? Men get to play the grumpy card every fucking day. A good manager should be comfortable with their employee fucking up occasionally. Just say "hey don't do that so much" and leave it at that.

the specifics of the industry they're in makes a bit of back and forth with online "customers" way more appropriate/less of a big deal too imo. it's not like she was, say, the head of state just blathering the most offensive shit that drifted thru her head at all and sundry

...others argued that terms like “gay” and “fag” evolved online. People claim that because the terms are used so often online, and supposedly without any malice, then our own understanding of how these words should be able to change. This argues kids who grow up on the internet, and see words like “gay” and “fag” slung around as casual supplements for words like stupid, frustrating, or annoying, wouldn’t think twice about using a slur because it’s not how the word was introduced into their vocabulary.


I wonder if these fucking idiots ever wonder about why society at large sees fit to ostracize them, besides the fact that we’re all normie chads or whatever
