They should have either left it out or designed it themselves to begin with. This just makes them look bad and leaves their customers with a bad multiplayer component until it's all sorted out.

Paradox, this is why we need to talk about your mods

As an American who enjoys the format of Eurogamer and it's articles every week, I have to say that I'm disappointed in this one. I am a firm believer in acceptance and tolerance even when it doesn't suit me, but what I will not accept is censorship of any kind just to make Christ Bratt or others like him feel more at ease.

Paradox pulls "discriminatory" Stellaris mod that made all humans white

Riven326

2 years ago

@carloshernadezrios Yeah. A friend of mine has this game and I created the "Space Nazis" faction. The game lets you do it. The only annoying bit was I had to pick another race other than human because there were no "white only" mods available at the time.

You can't have diverse Nazis. It's just weird.

@null Well, I'm not entirely convinced but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. That said, I think someone should either re-upload the mod or produce a similar mod and see what happens.

@grassyknoll Well, if that's the case then surely somebody can re-upload the mod without the racial slurs and all will be kosher, right?

@grassyknoll Yes and I don't buy their reasoning for a second. Why are the "African-only" mods not being removed?

@Valerjewitsch So it would seem. Unless they take it down soon it can only be described honestly as a double standard.

@Dragon75 I wouldn't be surprised if this is the case. Because if they take down the mod that involves brown skinned people they'd be labeled racist bigots and probably would be put in jail for violating some ridiculous hate speech law there in Sweden.

I would be interested to see Paradox's reaction to a mod that changes all the human characters to nothing but brown skinned people. Because if they decide to take it down, which is only fair given the treatment this mod has received, I'm sure they'd be called racist by the same people who applaud them for removing this mod.

Who cares? It's a mod that's not hurting anybody other than the idiots at Paradox and abroad who have delicate sensibilities.

@melnificent "Last thing first, yes I was just going to skip this years as it looked uninteresting. I'll probably still skip it, but I'm at least looking at it as a purchasing decision."

You said yourself that you were considering purchasing the game after having read this article. Now you're changing your position again.

@melnificent You'll have to forgive me. I'm not a regular on Eurogamer.

That said, I still think it's odd that this would be enough to sway you into a possible purchase. Relative to to the rest of the game, it seems rather insignificant.

@tomphillipsEG I have seen many people who aren't transgender claim that these small inclusions are bold steps such as yourself. But what I don't see is people who identify as transgender echoing that idea.

Digital Foundry vs Far Cry 4

Riven326

3 years ago

@null The contrast is so high that it makes the game look like it's suffering from black crush. The game just doesn't look good at all, IMO.

ARMA3 is a beautiful game. Not because it's a technical powerhouse, but because it's so strong artistically and doesn't overdrive contrast and colors.

Far Cry 4 looks terrible by comparison, IMO. It's like the game has been coded to run in torch mode. Contrast, colors, shadows, everything is over driven.

Alien: Isolation dev probes PS4 patch problems

Riven326

3 years ago

@null It's simply unacceptable no matter who it is, but it's even more unacceptable when you and I know that these publishers have a ton of money invested in these projects and the manpower to make sure that these games are stable by the time they hit retail. And if they aren't, delay the damn games.

They know gamers are willing to wait it out if it means a quality product. They're just greedy and want to make as much money as possible within the shortest amount of time. These kinds of short term decisions only lead to frustration on the part of the development team, who knows the game isn't ready to ship and has to finish development through patching, on the part of the consumer, who gets screwed out of their money, and on the part of the publisher, who then has to run damage control and try to calm everybody down.

It's fucking bullshit and people need to stop giving these companies their money blindly. Assume guilty until proven innocent. It's a cynical view to hold, but it's come to this and it's their fault, not ours.

Performance Analysis: Assassin's Creed Unity

Riven326

3 years ago

What the hell is wrong with video game developers today? Gameplay should always come before graphics. Having a framerate that is consistently below 30 is not acceptable at all. I'm not one of those people who demands 60fps in console games, but goddamn man, I at least expect a solid 30fps most of the time.

Is that too much to ask?
