Write this article but from the perspective of how when playing as the British Empire and Commonwealth forces you’re nearly always in an entirely White army despite the Empire being predominantly made up of Asian and African peoples or how no campaign ending ever has “and by jove, who cares if Bengal starved and… Read more
To each their own, I’ve got about 4 hours of the game under my belt and I’m enjoying it tremendously. Mind you I didn’t go into the game needing it to ‘say’ anything or deliver some kind of message/commentary. I wanted an enjoyable Bioware-style RPG and this game, so far at least, delivers in spades.
Being a history major, I have to hear about many unpleasant situations that have occurred throughout history and there have been many atrocities and negative situations. The game is providing a believable display of the colonial mindset, and many of the interactions (of course coming from a fantasy lens) aren’t going… Read more
I’m actually more interested in it BECAUSE of this setting. Not every game needs to make you a paragon or even give you a choice. Not every world is an analogue to Earth and our society and norms. Maybe being uncomfortable and raising questions is the point. Read more
I mean, yes, we can cynically boil it down to that. I understand there are no ethics in capitalism and we shouldn’t expect corporations to act morally.

If we held that same concept up in our daily lives we would all be “guilty” of all kinds of terrible… Read more
I don’t care for Chris Hardwick’s shtick but the hell do you want? We as a society can’t just forever mark someone because of an accusation especially when it goes nowhere. Who among us hasn’t said something shiddy about an ex with a decent bit of embellished details and sour grapes or vice versa. I have no idea what… Read more
Gasp! you forgot JC Denton and Adam Jensen from the Deus Ex series! How could you.
If a game doesn’t adhere to your own personal fantasy, then don’t play it. A developer should have enough creative freedom to not be called a sexist for a lack of female knights. This is just like how some are angry about there not being a female Link (not to be confused with having Zelda as a protagonist). I don’t… Read more
please . . . i literally almost just died
The table has turned.
yeah, from what I understand, Crisis Core was actually fun.
You clearly don’t understand how ethnic identifiers work. The term is African American (no hyphen) because we are Americans who trace our ethnic lineage to Africa, just as Irish Americans, Italian Americans, and German Americans trace their roots back to their respective regions.
