I'm really feeling it!

Static - PR is for Public Relations

...izen Kabuto… Giants: Citizen Kabuto… Giants: Citizen Kabuto...

Is it just me or does it seem like video game companies have a grudge against public relations? We got people selling dots and glorified jpeg files for money, taking beloved franchises to mobile and only mobile, and actively telling customers to not buy the game. Even if you think that, you can’t actually say it, Patrick. You know what you should have said? “We listened. The community was not being receptive to the mechanical arms, the katanas, and the teddy bears. So we compromised and removed them.” Which they did. Battlefield 5 came out and there wasn’t single teddy bear in sight, as far as I could tell. There were female soldiers, but just like the last time, when something similar happened, nobody notices in the middle of a gunfight. Was I right or was I right?

Speaking of EA, now they’re refusing to give people refunds? If there’s one company that needs truck full of PR specialists, it’s Electronic Arts. But then again, at least they’re pretending like they have a refund policy. Unlike Nintendo who kindly and politely tell you to go fuck yourself.

Overwatch pro had to quit due to harassment, for shame. Okay fine, she was a fake. What do you want from me? I gotta say, I’m actually kind of impressed. But this guy needs to come out and make clear what his intentions were. I think there are some valuable lessons to be learned here. I just hope people learn the right lessons from it. Because a lot of people are having a hard time accepting that they were tricked. It’s okay, it happens. Either way, I’m curious to see the fallout. What kind of echoes will this produce?

More people getting banned from Twitch for questionable reasons. You know, one part of me hopes that Twitch eventually gets a handle on these odd bans. But another part of me kinda doesn’t because this is some funny ass shit.

Bungie and Activision are getting a divorce. The marriage was supposed to last for at least 10 years. But only managed 9 years before facing the facts that the relationship wasn’t working out. Bungie was awarded full custody over their sole child, Destiny. Reports indicate that Bungie’s happily divorced party is in full swing, with singing, dancing, alcohol consumption, the whole shebang. Right alongside the fans, I might add.

Man, I have been severely out of loop when it comes to movies, anime, and tv shows. The last marvel movie I saw was Spiderman: Homecoming. I gave up on The Walking Dead too. I keep saying, in vain, that I’ll go back to it eventually but in my heart of hearts, I don’t see that happening. So much to watch, so little time.
