''Fresh from Jon ‘JonTron’ Jafari’s removal from Yooka-Laylee, the world of internet debate has been more than fierce. A number of outlets have reported on various aspects of the story, some forgetting to remove their person stances on the topic.''
Boycott warriors are the worst...
Meh, i might not agree with what he said, but it feels excessive to remove him for his opinions.
I would bet 95% of people who were going to buy this didn't even know he was involved in the voice acting to begin with...
"Play-Tonic where more than within their rights to remove Jafari from the game. They chose to remove him from the game on the basis of political beliefs, consumers have the right to remove their money from the game for the same reason. It’s a prime example of how quickly things can change when creators become political."
You start off by saying "people getting denied refunds isn't true" but you don't show anything that people got banned for on steam and the official forums. I agree with your civility statement (although people get refunds by being an asshole everyday, ask a customer service person). Maybe these people were told to fuck off about a refund and had a reason to talk shit. Banned from the steam forums and then went to the official forums like wtf. I can understand that.
I have never seen so many businesses tell their customers to eat shit than gaming companies. Their customer service must be the easiest job in the world, you just have to be a leftist prick activist. Let's hope they actually have a good game lol. You bring up the bioware guy talking shit but it's clear that bioware is now hiring people based on their political beliefs instead of talent. Their political beliefs are so hollow that it turned bioware into a shell of its former self. Activism is not a replacement for programming, storytelling, etc. We can all see the politicization of gaming and the vast majority of us don't like it.
I just refuse to buy the game until a physical Switch version is released.
Meh, im more interested in playing Skylar & Plux.
