  1. Jesus ****, is every single goddamn thing SJW now? Having women in your game that are combat capable, SJW. A playstyle that involves killing slavers, SJW. A plot that is in any way challenges or subverts the current system, SJW. Just pull the political **** out of your mouth and play a ****ing game for gods sake.
  2. I play an anti-hero; I try to stick up for people that I feel are getting a raw deal or any kind of oppressed population, but I have absolutely *zero* mercy or compassion for the people who are exploiting or oppressing them. If the NPC is a slaver or is implied to have committed any kind of sexual crime, I will straight-up murder them and anybody who defends them, including their entire organization if the game let's me, and steal everything they own. Outside of that scenario, I will accept a bargain or negotiation *if* doing so is advantageous to both myself *and* the people I'm trying to help.
  3. No they've *always* had some degree of overlap, because almost nobody plays only one genre of game and never any other. Most people play select games from multiple genres but focus more on one or two, rather than *exclusively* playing *one* genre.
  4. Yeah their not going to be stealing each others audiences like...at all. COD fans and Fallout-style RPG fans have some overlap, but not very much.
  5. Transgender didn't really exist as a concept at the time, so you have to translate what you see in film from that era into modern conceptions. Pre-Code Hollywood was very, very different from post-Code Hollywood; the creation and application of the Hays Code was very much a reaction, starting with religious groups, to the content of Hollywood films. What you see in certain films at the time wasn't portrayed as or conceived as "transgender" because that wasn't something that was a known concept. What you *do* see is people of one biological sex dressing, romancing, and occasionally living as the other biological sex, often but not exclusively portrayed in the context of homosexuality and crossdressing. This is often portrayed with male actors dressing in stereotypically feminine attire--such as French maid outfits--and engaging in sexual scenes with men and women, or female actors dressing in stereotypically masculine attire--such as full tails and a top hate--and engaging in romantic and sexual relationships with men and women. This is shown in such movies as "Call Her Savage" and "Dietrich". In movies where this is portrayed without explicitly sexual or romantic scenes, these characters are often coded as "androgynous", "all-encompassing" or "transcending male and female passions" such as in "Queen Christine", where the main character, portrayed by a female actor, has their hair cut in a typical male fashion, wheres male clothing throughout the film, engages in what was at the time considered typical masculine behavior such as drinking, swearing, and promiscuity and calls themselves a "bachelor for life" at one point. These are all films that were pre-1934. By 1935, the Hays Code was in full effect, the Production Code Administration had been established, and such themes were completely suppressed. You are correct that Christine Jorgensen was probably the first person to bring transgender and transexuality into widespread public awareness, and "Glen or Glenda" was probably the first film to *explicitly* discuss and be about specifically transgender and transexuality, but the themes in Hollywood well pre-date those events and without question would have been much more deeply and explicitly explored if the Hays Code hadn't come in and censored the hell out of everything.
  6. Not really. Audience members have *always* gotten pissy about media putting forth a message that they didn't like. In the 30's and 40's audiences would get *REALLY* upset and angry about plays and movies that were about transgender themes, "loose" sexuality, communists, gay people, interracial relationships, drug use, criticism of religion, etc. Hell the first national organization dedicated explicitly to screaming their heads off about "objectionable content" was founded by religious folks in *1933*, and people were flipping their **** about belly buttons in the 1960's. ****, in the late 1990's there were staged protests over movies. This crap is why we had the Hays Code and the Comics Code Authority and all sorts of ****--because people have *always* flipped their **** over the content of media. Audiences have *always* wanted to force certain political, cultural, or religious messages into or out of film, comics, books, and yes now video games since it's become a mature industry. It's ****ty, but it's not new. Audience members have been trying to force story-tellers to include or exclude certain content forever.
  7. Artistic integrity and freedom of speech have *never* been sacred in the entertainment industry. The federal government were involved in blacklisting "communists" back in the 40's and 50's and various cities, towns, and states have been suppressing films and other media right up through *today*.
  8. Basically, I play a decent dude whose very loyal and caring to his friends and try's to do his best to help people who need it, but to slavers and those who exploit the vulnerable my character is a gleeful, raging psychopath with no sense of decency or mercy.
  9. Would also like to know the answer to this question.
  10. As we get closer to the release date I'm considering pre-ordering it. Not through Epic--no way will I reward them for their ****ty exclusives crap--but some other store, perhaps. It looks like such a great game.
  11. Had never heard it before, but it's a *good* song and fits the apparent nature of the game well.
  12. They *literally told a news agency* that the rights had inverted back to Obsidian. Or at least a news agency had reported such. Nobody "inferred" anything. It was directly stated.
  13. Suddenly the possibility of a sequel has just *exploded*.
