Starhawk Interview with Lightbox President Dylan Jobe “I Received Hate Mail over Hero being Black”

GamerFitNation's Blackbible interviews Lightbox Interactive's President Dylan Jobe on Starhawk.

"On April 14th, 2012 GamerFitNation’s BlackBible was invited to the PlayStation Lounge for Sonys Spring Preview. There he interviewed LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe about his up coming title StarHawk. In this unorthodox but fun interview we spoke about the differences between Warhawk and StarHawk, Giant Robot Spiders, Kratos Skins, and Racism."

imagine the hate mail if he was a black Muslim of Jewish decent

Raf1k12405d ago

I'm glad he's black. I actually kind of like the look of the guy and think we need more main characters who aren't white.

JohnnyMann4202405d ago

Yep I agree. Also, the hate mail doesn't surprise me because there are aholes everywhere.

Cool people and aholes... the only two groups f people in this world.

"I actually kind of like the look of the guy and think we need more main characters who aren't white."

I long as it isn't being done for the sake of having a black character or to make a social statement.

In Starhawk, it was done for aesthetics purposes. Black men have a certain voice that can't be replicated by other races and Jobe liked the way the Rift infection looked on black skin. In Starhawk, it makes SENSE for there to be a black character(dark skin makes the light blue infection pop out more).

Just like it made sense to have a black lead in San Andreas due to the games gangsta rap/hiphop vibe and the fact that your the leader of a predominantly black gang.

ilikestuff2405d ago

agreed, what do these people think black people are to lazy to be heroes? racists jackasses. and after reading this it could be taken as sarcasm, it isn't though

TopDudeMan2405d ago

Yeah, I'm downright disgusted at some people's reactions to this.

If you only have love for your own race, then you only leave space to discriminate.

True words.

crxss2405d ago

doesn't matter if a character's white, black, asian, or even alien. utterly ridiculous that people send hate mail over that

GraveLord2405d ago

Should've made him yellow! No one hates yellow people.
(Look at my avy for reference)

Shocking, well not really. The Sniper Elite guys got hate mail from Neo-Nazi's about adding the kill Hitler mission. Hopefully those d!cks don't buy it and the online will be that much nicer without the bigotry.

LOGICWINS2405d ago (Edited 2405d ago )

Probably not buying Starhawk anytime soon. The game itself is a fantastic online game(the removal of hovering made this game damn near perfect), but 80% of the players currently don't know what the hell they're doing. I'll get it in the future when it has an established community of players who actually WANT(and know how) to compete.

I'm here because I enjoy BlackBible's interviews and to express my distaste for the racists out there. Unbelievable. It's only a big deal because these people make it a big deal.

you do know why you're getting down voted right?

"Probably not buying Starhawk anytime soon, even though the game itself is a fantastic online game(the removal of hovering made this game damn near perfect)"

LOGICWINS2405d ago

Online multiplayer is Starhawk's bread and butter. Hence, most of my time will be spent with online multiplayer. Which means most of my enjoyment will depend on the competence of other players. Currently, most players suck. I've had situations where I'm the ONLY one going for the flag and team members LITERALLY past right by me when there on a Jeep(knowing full well that I have the flag).

Don't care if people disagree with me, but if I'm being voted down for stating an educated opinion(half of which you left out in your post)..then that simply shows how backwards this community is.

Bubbling down someone because they say they aren't buying a game anytime soon? Ummm...loool.

dubt722405d ago

In this day and age... (shakes head slowly)

Kran2405d ago

Lets face it, its not as bad as it was years ago, where black people were slaves, or had no rights or anything.
