Your point is that while you don't have any issues with the white folks of today you have considerable issues with the white folks of the past and how they treated your people. It was completely abhorrent what they did and I agree that it definitely set the cultural trend for colored people to be less prosperous in motion.

I'm not splitting hairs, you're saying that you were put in a shitty position in life because your grandpappy was a slave, but back in those days everyone was enslaving everyone. In fact I'm pretty sure Africa collectively had the largest slave trade in the world.

In today's society, being black is not the handicap you seem to think it is. Sure racism is still very real, but it works both ways. You're collectively judging an entire race of people for the actions of their ancestors. Are there any slaves in America today? Probably sex slaves, but that's about it I think.

So get off your soap box and shut the fuck up. If you're in a shitty position in life then get the fuck out of it instead of just pushing the blame onto others you lazy shit.

I'm not an activist and not appealing to people to do anything, I say that an operation "NoPrEorders" would be more benefitial to gamers than complaining about Mr. Kern being blocked on Twitter. It would be something that makes actual sense.

Myself do I have a couple of reviewers whose judgement I trust, for example is Angry Joe always on spot. Other than that I watch a lot of gameplay videos before I purchase. Pre-ordering is out of the question, I've never done that. I did buy one early access game, though, but it was on sale, I watched at least 3 hours of gameplay, and then I played that thing for over 300 hours (so far; it's 7 days to die).

I understand that my impression, you considered Kern's concern legit and mine not, was false. Very good.

I do, however, indeed feel entitled to a gaming experience that is worth the money I spend on it. The argument, that you can wait til the price drops, I consider as invalid, because the price for any game will drop, also the good ones. What annoys me is when I can clearly see that the developer and/or publisher intentionally tries to sell bullshit and does not bother to make an actual effort to create a great game. It's a first world problem, of course, still I would welcome an organised movement advertising the boycott of pre-orders, or buying games on day one that have some kind of review-embargo, and so many more things. This might inspire the industry to take the consumer more seriously, and would result in an actual improvment of that gaming experience. That's why I tend to be particularly annoyed by all the energy that gamergate wastes on it's cause, because that won't change anything.
User avatar #49 - subaqueousreach (03/03/2015) [-]
The only issue with an organized boycott is gamers aren't all of the same mindset. There always be a larger group of people who will still preorder, or buy on day one, or blow $200 on skins for a dozen characters, regardless of what anyone is saying about the titles. I'm pretty sure half of the GG crowd bought Evolve pre-orders.

For me, Destiny was what made me decide I would t pre-order another game and will always wait a good while before buying any triple AAA title. I agree that the prices companies charge for their games, pre-order collector mega super editions, and all of the DLC is pretty steep, but unless everyone can come to the same way of thinking, it's likely not going to change any time soon.

Really my best answer to the issue is for people to rely more on their own judgment rather than listen to one reviewer and buy the game. My personal method is pirating a copy of the game, play it for a couple days, and if I like it? Buy it. If not? I uninstall it and move on with life.

Destiny is just another example of many, and the problem with the order is not just some hype, but how the game is designed. It's short, the story is hollow, 1/3 are cutscenes, 1/3 has the player running around and half of the rest are quick time events. What makes them think it's ok to develop and sell shit like that for the full AAA price?

The problem with Evolve is similar, there is no story, the gameplay is repetetive, and as I hear boring to quite an extent, and to top it off they try to sell some colors for real money. Unheard of.

And H1Z1 has not just the problem with the p2w-shit, what I find a lot more outrages is the fact that a company like SONY dares to jump on the goddamn "early access" bandwagon. Buggy games for 20 bucks? How about at least rich ass companies like this finish development before they sell their games.

If, of course, you see no bigger problem in gaming than a "seasoned developer" being blocked by some journalist on Twitter, or some articles from half a year ago, that you just can't let go, you're free to revolt against that. Sign Kern's petition, take part in his hashtag-campaign, be an activist.

But it'll lead to no changes that will benefit those who love to play video games.
User avatar #48 - davyjonesbooty (03/03/2015) [-]
I'm going to jump in here. Mainly only for the Sony/H1Z1 remark, because Sony wasn't involved in the creation of that at all. It was all on SOE's shoulders.

I've been playing Planetside 2 for the past few months, so I kind of know a little bit about the devs of the game.

Planetside 2 and H1Z1 are both made by Sony Online Entertainment now known as Daybreak Games Company . SOE was a subsidiary of Sony and made many PC MMOs such as the EverQuest franchise, DC online Universe, the Planetside franchise and a few others.

Recently, SOE has been in a deficit, with Planetside 2 only turning a profit in the past few months, despite being out for the past 2 years. As such, they were bought out by an investment firm known as Columbus Nova. This happened only a few weeks ago and roughly a few weeks after the release of H1Z1. So now we have the guys who made H1Z1 bought out from Sony and working under new management.

Oh, and Early Access really isn't that bad, mate.
#52 - John Cena (03/03/2015) [-]
I don't actually see how your backstory of H1Z1 legitimizes SONY to parttake in the EA-practice. Was the game EA before Sony bought it or is SOE poor, and not to be confused with Sony? Sony could not provide some $$$ to get the game finished?

And EA is bad when the product is buggy. It's ok when the game is just unfinished and the dev is actually interested in user-feedback, but selling something that is buggy is indeed unethical. My example of choice here is DayZ a game that seems to get worse, instead of better, at least that's what I hear and see, about a year ago I thought I'd buy it once it's finished. But I have long started to doubt that will ever happen - another problem of ea-games, once they got enough people to pay them, they just abandon the game.
User avatar #55 - davyjonesbooty (03/03/2015) [-]
No, Sony never had anything to do with SOE besides the name and the founding. Sony started SOE and gave them money to make games, SOE is in charge of which games are made, and when and how they get made.

Sony and SOE/DGC are two different companies. It's like if you hire a building company to make your house. You don't have absolute control over the operation, and you don't tend to worry about insignificant details like the colour of the wires they use for lighting

H1Z1 Review Revisited - Worth a Buy?

vs

7 Days to Die Review (Alpha 9) - Worth a Buy?
User avatar #64 - davyjonesbooty (03/03/2015) [-]
I'm going to address some points of the video, not just because I want to defend the game, but also because the review was wrong in certain areas.

1)Loot crate drops in H1Z1 are server events this means that it's not just you paying and you get the items. It's you paying and then much like 7DTD a crate drops and every player has a chance to get it.
2)He keeps blaming Sony when it's not Sony. He hasn't done his research. Admittedly, this is pre-CN takeover, but it's still SOE and not Sony
3)It's not p2w (see point 1), his definition is p2w is that you can buy things with IRL money or premium currency that F2P players can't. By that logic, almost every MMO is p2w
4)He claims that it's not a Zombie survival because you can't set your spawn. That sounds more to me like a hardcore zombie survival game. He really just sounds angry that the game isn't finished despite the fact that it's EA

Yeah, he does an alright review of 7DTD. But 7DTD and H1Z1 are kinda different games trying to do different things. He seems to love 7DTD, but he is so fucking biased against H1Z1 it's not even funny.
#89 - John Cena (03/04/2015) [-]
Why would he be biased against a game? What do you mean with that? He likes the one game, for the reasons he gives, and he dislikes the other, for the reasons he gives. That's what a reviewer, that I am interested to listen to, should do. Give their personal opinion, that you might call "subjective", as it is, to an uncertain degree, but that they also substantiate with reasons why. And this guy clearly says why he loves 7 days to die and does not like H1Z1.

To reference gamergate: I absolute despise the idea of every "reviewer" excluding their personal opinion and preferences from their reviews. Sure I am also interested in the technical aspects, the framerate, the texture quality, wether the game is stable and has bugs. Sure. Anybody who tested the game can tell you about that. But when I buy a game that I want to enjoy and spend 10, 20, 50 or 350 hours with, I want someone with a similar taste like mine to tell me if they liked playing it or not.

And, to spin this thought further, I am superbly fine with reviewers of all kinds of personal opinions and preferences. So if there are some that review a game from a feministic perspective and rate the experience on such grounds, give it a lower score because of sexist aspects, that's their goddamn right.

Since you show no sign of being a gamergate, this was just randomly throwing in my thoughts, so don't necessarily feel adressed.

H1Z1, to respond to your points, is made by a company called "SONY" (something something). If they are not SONY, then why do they have the name. And if they don't have at least 0.0001% of Sony's money and can't live up to an expectation people have from Sony, Sony should not let this poor company besmear their good name.

And those airdrops are, as WAB and I think also boogie had explained, problematic because there will be crews ordering them in. Crews who will guard the area, so they can get the drop. That is p2w-ish enough for me, besides that I also simply despise the idea of ordering in air-drops for money. I'd give those 5 bucks to Eldad Hagar at any time, 5 bucks for some virtual item, you gotta be kiddin.

And 4 he claims it's not Zombie survival because of several reasons, one being that you loose everything, your loot and your home, when you die (personally, I play 7 days so that I have to start a new game once I die, anything else is unrealistic). To me, it is the overall atmosphere that I see in videos. The game seems to be some sort of DayZ-clone, and we all know that the Zombies in that game are more or less a background decoration, they are rare and a minor threat, while the core game is surviving against other players.

7 days to die is a Zombie survival game. It is brilliant in every way, except, arguably the graphics of some stuff (plants, mostly) and the meelee combat (pretty dull with just one type of attack).
User avatar #90 - davyjonesbooty (03/04/2015) [-]
Okay, so with the bias thing, he does really go out of his way to exaggerate the bad points of the bad game on the good points of the good game. I haven't played H1Z1, but I have played 7DTD and heard a fair bit about H1Z1. I can tell you that 7DTD wasn't as enjoyable as he made it out to be. Sure, it's a good game. But it's not a "waste my life for 100 hours because it's bloody awesome" game. As far as H1Z1 is concerned, it's a somewhat decent game, and he does really exaggerate the bad points especially the "pay to win" part

Okay, as for the objective/subjective thing. I'm kinda on the fence here. On the one hand I do want to see people telling me why the game is good or bad because that way I can listen to their arguments and then reason it out. What I never want to hear/read is people telling me that a game is good or bad because of diversity quotas or misogyny. I have nothing against this guy's style because he at least tells us some of the technical stuff. When it comes to Kotaku and Polygon, you just need to look at their reviews of bayonetta 2. count the amount of times "sexism", "misogyny" and "sexualised" show up www.polygon.com/2014/10/13/6957677/bayonetta-2-review-wii-u

I feel the need to add that I am a gamergater, but not a really hardcore one. I just believe that we should hold all journalists to a standard, and all those sjw-y media outlets fail to come close to that standard.

H1Z1 was made by Sony Online Entertainment. Basically, SOE started in '95 and was provided initial funding. Albeit under a different name. They become SOE Inc in 98 after a merger with Sony Online Ventures with Sony Pictures Entertainment and then in '06 they became SOE LLC. Sony cared less about SOE than the CEO of Wal-Mart Stores Inc cares about a tiny WalMart in Arkansas. That is, Sony only cared if SOE turned a profit and didn't want to hear anything else.

You see, I don't define that as P2W. I think that P2W is when you can buy something with IRL cash or a premium currency bought with IRL cash that normal F2P players can't buy. This sort of thing is common in MMOs like ArcheAge, where a membership paid subscription is the only way to get a house or a farm, which lets you do things to progress much faster and earn much more money than F2P players. Not to mention that members generate labor points at double speed. every action you make costs LP. Non-members only get 10 every 10 minutes, it's fucking ridiculous H1Z1 just allows you to spawn in a server event that anyone can grab. Does that mean that it's P2W? No. Because some scrub can spawn it in and might get taken by a different scrub. Not only that, but there's no guarantee that it'll contain anything good. There's a small chance you may get a gun or some bullets, but that's it.

I don't see your problem with the survival aspect as a problem. Doesn't losing everything on death put more emphasis on survival? Sure, you don't lose the world and start again, but it's as goddamn close as you can get with a multiplayer server. and who says that zombies have to be the major threat? In a real situation, it's going to end being that people are a bigger threat once the initial wave of zombies dies off.

7DTD and H1Z1 are both zombie survival games. They do some things good, and some things not too good. The key difference between the 2 is that one game has been out for a month, and the other has been out for over a year

If it is as you say, and SOE is not a rich ass company, then at least my corresponding argument is obsolete. Still, I reject the practice of selling buggy games, no matter if it says "beware of the bugs".

The Order isn't the first AAA title to disappoint people and it won't be the last.

>Selling colors for real money. Unheard of.

League of Legends, Awesomenauts, Heroes of the Storm, Portal 2, Mass Effect, and many MANYother games have sold skins for real currency. Its not anything new so no one should be in an uproar about this as 1. It isn't mandatory to have them and 2. It doesn't give anyone an advantage for having them.

As for the gameplay, I've heard multiple opinions of why Evolve is fun, why its bad, why I should or shouldn't get it, etc. The only common negative comment I hear is "if the monster is bad or the hunters are bad, the game feels too long or easy depending on who it is." Otherwise most things I hear are generally positive and that the "campaign" game mode is actually really well done. I agree with the idea that it isn't a $60 title, but that's what goty sales and steam sales are for. I'll get it in a few months when it's $30. Until then I've got a whole library of games to keep me occupied.

As for Sony, they're also not the first organization to jump on the bandwagon for paid early access. If you don't like buggy games, then don't play early access, because they're specifically marketed for bug testing. In fact there are usually big warning signs that say;
THIS GAME IS IN EARLY ACCESS! THERE WILL BE BUGS!

No one is being forced to pay the 20 bucks for the early access. In the end its those peoples money and if they wanna buy into a beta test then all the power to them. Heroes of the Storm just did the same thing with the founders pack and I haven't seen an uproar about that anywhere.

I'm not supporting GG or anti GG, honestly I don't care too much about the issue of ethics in gaming journalism since the few people I go to for game reviews are always very forward about their personal opinions on what they're reviewing/playing. Totalbiscuit, Markiplier, Force, Achievement Hunter, etc

All I was saying is that gamers will get in a huff about almost anything, even when its really not a big deal at all, all because of some deluded sense of entitlement.

I understand that my impression, you considered Kern's concern legit and mine not, was false. Very good.

I do, however, indeed feel entitled to a gaming experience that is worth the money I spend on it. The argument, that you can wait til the price drops, I consider as invalid, because the price for any game will drop, also the good ones. What annoys me is when I can clearly see that the developer and/or publisher intentionally tries to sell bullshit and does not bother to make an actual effort to create a great game. It's a first world problem, of course, still I would welcome an organised movement advertising the boycott of pre-orders, or buying games on day one that have some kind of review-embargo, and so many more things. This might inspire the industry to take the consumer more seriously, and would result in an actual improvment of that gaming experience. That's why I tend to be particularly annoyed by all the energy that gamergate wastes on it's cause, because that won't change anything.

The only issue with an organized boycott is gamers aren't all of the same mindset. There always be a larger group of people who will still preorder, or buy on day one, or blow $200 on skins for a dozen characters, regardless of what anyone is saying about the titles. I'm pretty sure half of the GG crowd bought Evolve pre-orders.

For me, Destiny was what made me decide I would t pre-order another game and will always wait a good while before buying any triple AAA title. I agree that the prices companies charge for their games, pre-order collector mega super editions, and all of the DLC is pretty steep, but unless everyone can come to the same way of thinking, it's likely not going to change any time soon.

Really my best answer to the issue is for people to rely more on their own judgment rather than listen to one reviewer and buy the game. My personal method is pirating a copy of the game, play it for a couple days, and if I like it? Buy it. If not? I uninstall it and move on with life.

I'm not an activist and not appealing to people to do anything, I say that an operation "NoPrEorders" would be more benefitial to gamers than complaining about Mr. Kern being blocked on Twitter. It would be something that makes actual sense.

Myself do I have a couple of reviewers whose judgement I trust, for example is Angry Joe always on spot. Other than that I watch a lot of gameplay videos before I purchase. Pre-ordering is out of the question, I've never done that. I did buy one early access game, though, but it was on sale, I watched at least 3 hours of gameplay, and then I played that thing for over 300 hours (so far; it's 7 days to die).

Hey sorry for that asshole that replied to you on the feels channel. I had commented back before I checked his page and realised his account got banned in a sea of red thumbs, hah.

All right, I can't find the exact link, but it was on the feels channel on a mother post, and you were explaining how your mother sent you and yoour brothers out to a back alley everytime you went somewhere, and he said it was too bad you were a brony. I replied to him saying just because he's a brony his emotional hardship doesn't matter, **** you. Something like that. Anyway that was before I clicked on his channel and found out he had been banned.
