PostTHQNordic do an ama...on 8chan. ok.

For those who aren't aware...

In August 2015, 8chan was blacklisted from Google Search for containing content constituting "suspected child abuse content."[12]


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/8chan

It's a haven of white supremacists and paedophiles run by a guy who writes for Stormfront. A...bold strategy from THQ there.

EDIT: Patrick Klepek has been screenshotting some of the questions and responses...

I’m looking forward to the next Timesplitters game that’s going to be set in 1970s BBC Television Centre.

I'm really struggling to see the upside to this marketing maneuver x

It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for 'em.

They tried to jump on the outrage culture advertising bandwagon without understanding how it actually works. Now you have several studios full of pissed off people because their games are going to be associated with a company that is seen as condoning of paedophiles.

I don't think I'll ever understand THQ Nordic.

Very very confused on why they would be doing this and not Reddit or anything else.

If we give them the benefit of the doubt, they might have thought that's what they were doing, after all, the AMA format originated in Reddit, right?

They were approached, rather than requested to appear on that specific site, so they might not have been fully clued up on where their content was going and presumed that they were just doing it on Reddit or somewhere similar.

My guess is he equated it as edgy but thought it was more like 4chan, rather than paedo central.

Stupid bastard. He can enjoy his future job search pretty soon I imagine.

Check out some of our stuff!

What is due diligence?

I'd probably ask for his resignation honestly

Stop this nonsense and give me TimeSplitters 2 HD :x

I can't see those at the top not giving him the push. How many brands have to, on their official twitter account, actively distance themselves from child pornography and white supremacism?

EDIT: There is no way he wasn't aware of 8chan's rep. Even if we give him some inordinate benefit of the doubt, his responses in the ama itself were strawberry floating insane.

Well considering today’s event the idea gets dumber by the moment. I can’t believe Brock has not resigned.

You can bet your bottom dollar when the revelation that the shooter maybe once played CoD hit, every mention of his being an 8channer will mention THQ.

TBH, I actually have zero clue on 8chan. Not even sure I've heard of it. I know of 4chan, but then again, I know very little about.
