Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Aprrently, some atheists and non-Chirstian groups are offended by the world "Chirstmas" because it has the word "Chirst" in it.  I guess it is some type of strawman to piss people off and cause a flame war.

Yeah, I understand that, but for the sake of the kids, they can just get their heads out of their asses and get over it.  This isn't the season to be an asshole, it is the season to come together with family and friends.

Also for the Aussie Gamers who don't have snow, perhaps the OFLC should make a Christmas card with a hot sunny day at the Beach and Santa in his swimming clothes delivering PlayStation 2, 3 & PSPs, XBox360s and Nintendo Wii's and DS's.


And hopefully in the next two years there could be an R18+ rating for Videogames if all goes well.

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

After having an icecicle land on my head, this warms my heart.

Happy holidays all!

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Come on, it's Christmas/Hanukkah/Quanza/etc. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

i dunno with all the religious descrimination during this season should the holidays be rated "E"?

more like "T" or something perhaps... :p

 

j/k not a fan of the holidays, but doesn't mean others aren't, so have fun all!

the age of the gamer is beginning and '08 was merely the start :)

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Makes me wonder what a 'T' or 'M' version might look like... ;P

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

political correctness is in itself politically incorrect.

its actually more polite to call someone a retard (Slow) that it is to call the mentaly ill (messed up)

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

I've never actually heard of anyone who objects to the word Christmas, methinks it's just a giant strawman.

Although if such a person did exist you get to ignore them.

As we all know people can get offended by anything.

Andrew EisenIt's not needed. It's a joke. Albeit one with quite a bit of commentary packed into it.05/25/2015 - 10:59pm
Matthew Wilsonmot game related, but still interesting. http://www.polygon.com/2015/5/25/8654983/jurassic-world-chris-pratt-apology the fact that this is even needed in modern culture is a embarrassment.05/25/2015 - 10:26pm
Matthew Wilsonyeah, but with no voice chat its doa.05/25/2015 - 9:48pm
TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm

ZenProject Cars basically canceled for Wii U, Slightlymad Studios Head, Ian Bell, states "Yup, and if you need to pass this on, we really dislike Nintendo users" on Forum to Wii U players waiting for the game and disappointed in the news.05/25/2015 - 4:03pm

Goth_SkunkGranted, most of that feedback is going to be vicious, but if a novice dev knows full well not to expect their hastily strewn together game as the next Grand Theft Auto, such curmudgeonly feedback shouldn't deter them from their ultimate goal of becoming05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, Steam is a platform whereby these novice devs can showcase what they were able to put together and see what kind of feedback they can get from the community.05/25/2015 - 3:44pm
