Cologne is gonna get MERKED.
Awesome move. Politicians and gaming should definately be mixed, might ease them up a bit.
Please accept my down vote and the many others that people will send your way. Politicians and the politics they push have no place in gaming period. Gaming is supposed to be a good source of entertainment and a fun hobby for people to immerse themselves in amazing stories involving characters that a person can feel a connection with. Gaming is not supposed to be filled with political, SJW bullcrap so based on your statement it seems to mean that you could care less about gaming and more about pushing some stupid, idiotic agenda like the politicians you so admire. They are nothing more than crooked thieves and thug, something they always will be.
Couldn't agree with you more. And not only that, but Merkel is the very kind of person that could arrive at Gamescom and go all "Jack Thompson" after seeing something with a bit of violence in it.
Would like to know what is SJW bullcrap to you? Cause I see a lot of racist people just say racist stuff is SJW when its not. I also think if you push for political leaders, that dont have super pacs, you dont have " crooked thieves and thug, something they always will be." Or push for reform in regulating congress like super pac limits, fundraisers,lobbying,etc. you can fix it instead of having the hopeless pathetic attitude you give off. Im sure the executives and ruling elite love your attitude though cause they can just stomp all over you and use you with that attitude
blackparade isn't saying for them to legislate over gaming but that playing some games might make them loosen up. Let them play Nintendo if that makes you feel better. Nintendo goes mostly for inoffensive fun.
I definitely agree. Couldn't have said it any better.
This is the last person we want involved with gaming. https://www.theverge.com/20...
The woman who is single handedly destroying Germany while other countries are trying following her lead (disgusting). I hate this woman with a passion and there is so much blood on her hands..
@grub, absolutely. She should be tried for treason amongst other things. When the 5hit hits the fan which it will, her and the rest of the eu cronies should be held accountable.
@Erik Enjoy your authoritarianism and "words are violence" speech suppression nonsense. I'll take my free speech :)
Moe actually lives in Germany, FYI.
Maybe she can address the recent announcement of COD WW2's Swastikas being removed from Multiplayer and her thoughts on it?
She'll only say that censoring history is a good thing, which it's not and that she doesn't want video games to hurt little SJW feelings.
GrimReaperGamer Yep, that's what I was getting at. She's definitely not "For the Gamers".
Germany has some of the worst censorship of anywhere.
Well you know what will happen https://youtu.be/sacn_bCj8t...
Allright, I said politicians not politics for good reason guys. quote: "Might ease them up a bit". I just like seeing them in a different environment having fun.
I bet she's a hardcore gamer.
Please never reference "hardcore" with Merkel again. I think I'm going to have nightmares. But yea, on topic, why not have one of Germany's star game developers open the show? Why give this woman a platform to speak for an entertainment medium she believes is in need of censorship, not just age ratings? They certainly Merked this one up.
Lol merked this one up, that is hillarious
What kind of nightmares? Lol Is it like the ones BJ has when you go to sleep in Wolfenstein: The New Order :3
Germany bans and censors a lot of games and because of that sometimes the rest of Europe get's the censored version too. South Park for example
Could have just said, The Legend 27 is gonna be opening Gamescom
'The Legend 27', Do you know what they say about the Legend 27?
The leader of a country who won't allow blood in games great!
"In Deutschland, we have a fine tradition of destroying Europe every few decades"- Angela Merkel
That's pretty cool.
No thanks. She's a cancer to Germany.
Good for the gaming industry. I consider gaming part of the tech industry so a bit of acknowledgement goes a long way.
Great way to figure out who to ban since its all in one place.
Indeed, hopefully this right wing nutters will feel the wrath of the mods...
So to all you People Talking about "Savages" and all of that: I'm a german and i live in Germany, and you know what, our Country isn't in a state of Chaos now. You People talking about them as savages because of some Storys about individuals? Some weeks ago a 20 year old german raped a kid and killed it in my neighborhood, he filmed the whole thing and put that on the internet. So what? The point Is These are Single cases. Since the refugee thing started, thousands of attacks per year were executed against "Immigrants" in Germany, because people are afraid of things that didnt really happened. The number of crimes that "Immigrants" Started Is much mich power. So when you talk about savages then maybe you think about them, the right-minded People, the nazis. I don't agree with Most things Angela Merkel does, but her refugee-politic Is a good thing, a human decision, and governments don't do this really often. (And btw are we, The Western World, responsible for Most of The problems they are Running away from)
I, too, live in Germany since my birth. There is nothing really human about her decision, because she doesn't have to deal with everyday-problems between the people that have always lived there and the immigrants. The image of Germany has clearly changed, sometimes I fear taking a walk into somewhat more isolated places in nature or going alone to crowded places like airports or train stations. Those immigrants are not as innocence as you illustrate them, neither are the germans themselves. The germans themselves have become the most retarded people on earth. They're pricky and cold-hearted with persons that have always lived in Germany, they're not really willing to help those kind of citiziens and if they do, because they're forced to. What about the immigrants? They get every help possible. Money and resources, health care ecc. I had some health problems and until today they didn't have understanding for my problems. They just send me on without offering me appropiate help or a proper solution. I don't blame the immigrants, I blame those german people. I don't feel much pity with them, after learning their methods and how they treat people like me and I've always lived in Germany (since my very birth). I would leeave the country if I could. Sadly I can't. I'm already eager to see how sh!tty they will continue to treat me, while having an open heart with those immigrants. Hypocritic german people. Those german politicians are nothing other but thiefs, with the one in the thumbnail being the biggest of them all. They try to make seem Germany like a country of freedom and possibilites and yet one that has always lived here needs to lick blood in order to go forwards. At school I had to beg my teachers to let me pass, although I had really good results. Seems like they didn't like me as person, because germans don't like righteous people. Germans like only retards like themselves and immigrants that live on the cost of the whole state.
Welp I guess Gamescom is a presser I'll ignore from now on.
The march towards mainstream acceptance and recognition of this medium continues.
Here's some good ol German law for ya, Freedom of expression is granted by Article 5 of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany, which also states that there is no censorship and that freedom of expression may be limited by law. The press is regulated by the law of Germany as well as all 16 States of Germany. The most important and sometimes controversial regulations limiting speech and the press can be found in the Criminal Code - wiki freedom of speech by country Now to anyone living in a country that has absolute freedom of speech what do you think Mama Merkel is going to talk about
Well she is considered leader of the free world now thanks to the monumentally stupid nation that is America lol
She's gonna be there to show everyone the VG she's been working on, it's a strategy game where you have to help mid-eastern migrants invade the old continent and wreak havoc, rape the women, plunder, burn, destroy and everything. Cause y'know: https://pbs.twimg.com/media... Now if someone could come up with an idea for a First-person shooter where you impersonate Donal Trump and you carry all the guns a human being can carry, all loaded and cocked, to solve the problem in the most radical manner, with even a button especially dedicated to swearing just to add insult to injury when you encounter Merkel as the final boss and give her a proper haircut, I'm all in.
Fortunately I don't go to such conventions. I want to avoid to see this person live.
No offence, but they lied too much and lost all credibility. She just does what she wants, so let her continue to do so. I'll ignore her for sure and I hope that we'll soon get a somewhat more believable and capable head of the state. I wouldn't put my hopes too high though, as I'm not born yesterday and know very well how those beings work.
its gonna be cringe, its gonna be embarrassing, perfect id say. no clue as to why she wants to open gamescom with a speech.
