I wonder what's happening on NeoGAF.


Interesting thing for him of all people to post.

Expected a flurry of people calling him out on it, not a single person does. I'm guessing the people still on neogaf are right in evilore's buddy group.

Please don't link to NeoGAF, it's basically an alt-right hellhole now. Just quote the gooseberry fool that banana split says.

Resetera is funny, in comparison NGAF has no redeeming value whatsoever in my opinion.

I'm not enforcing that, it's a request. It's basically a silo for shitty views and one man's slimy pocket.

There's a fave Simpsons thread just started on Era. The opening post has one ep in it and it's the one where Homer is Burnsie's "prank monkey". (Does stupid gooseberry fool on Burns's say so for money.) I tried to be polite about it on there, but... WTF :?

This is amazing in a sad and pathetic kind of way: https://www.resetera.com/threads/tequil ... ed.198546/

-"indie dev" tweets about Tequila Works demanding/possibly litigating he remove trees which are a bit too similar to those in Rime from his 20k Kickstarted project.

-people dog pile on Tequila Works for being bullies.

-other people point out other similarities between project and Rime.

-dog pilers respond with lol you can't trademark trees; Rime itself was inspired by other games, media; Rime was overrated, etc.

-Tequila Works put out a statement saying they asked nicely, no court demands, etc.

-dev later responds he didn't mean to give wrong impression re TW asking him to remove trees, apologises and says he removed the trees a while ago in another build.

-other people point out the project also has similarities to Journey (and other games I think)

-dev says he's found all this very mentally taxing and is taking a break from developing his project and hopes to return to it as something completely different.

A sad turn of events, aye? Well, it gets worse: turns out the dev has a history of straight up being "inspired" by those around him, to the point of just asking they give him their models, etc for his project. He also made multiple tweets/posts a while ago saying he was sick of the project and wanted to quit making it. And so some suspect he instigated/took advantage of this Tequila Works situation as an excuse to bail out on delivering the Kickstarted game. No idea if there are refunds in the works. (Oh and he promised and confirmed physical versions of the game for his Kickstarter backers and then reneged on it.)

I would say that everyone involved in this hoo ha should get out more, but in the current circumstances, that might not be the best advice.

Looks like Resetera are now after Digital Foundry, which is kind of hilarious to me.

It's over John from DF doing a technical analysis on Ion Storm, the first person shooter. Game has a gay joke or something in it. They want him to acknowledge this on a technical analysis video and outright tried to get him to pull the video. They dogpiled him on the forum and they are now organising to push Eurogamer on it.

I used to be so down on DF but then I realised that it was the community reaction to DF content that was annoying me. That community being Neogaf at the time. I wish I had opened my eyes a little more back then.

I was looking into this recently. It seems this happened:

[quote] The use of the word "f*gbag" in an area that was inaccessible without hacking the game, and was added by one developer without approval from anyone else[/quote]

They removed it. Then walked back the decision after clowns review bombed it on Steam arguing free speech.

Then people found transophobic and sexist jokes from their staff on Discord.

Whole thing has escalated a lot more than it had any right to. They should have just stuck by removing the content and apologised.

Resetera have had a hard-on for hating that game/developer ever since it came out so this story doesn't surprise me.
