  1. Exactly. That's why you mustn't budge at first. If you do, well, then you're gonna get fuc*** by just about every internet demographic out there. Devs need to follow Daniel Vavra's example and just refuse to change anything. They've given up on him and his game. I mean I'm sure they'll give him hell again when the game gets released, but it'll blow over.
  2. This is why I say removing things is a slippery slope, now they're demanding something else gets removed. Where does it end?
  3. I think you mean this blog post. Then again, maybe not. He doesn't mention people demanding it be changed. He does mention the team worrying about what to do about such sensitive issues because they themselves also felt uncomfortable about it. An interesting piece either way. Yes that's it thanks. I read it a long time ago and couldn't find it in my history, also yes it was internal than external discussion/pressure.
  4. I wrote a reply but the thread got locked before I had time to post it. Fortunately I saved it: Those are pretty good questions actually. I'm not all that interested in endgames. I see culture as more of a process and find it more interesting and productive to identify things wrong with it and then attempt to change them, and also make constant course corrections in case of unintended consequences or more pressing concerns coming up. I would like to live in a kinder world: one where it matters less where you were born and who your parents were, which provides more second chances when
  5. I asked in the previous thread but it got locked and I never got an answer. What is the "progressive" crowd's endgame? I am genuinely curious as I don't think I've ever seen a coherent answer to this question. I've seen half answers ranging from everyone has to be represented in every single game (this seems highly unrealistic to me), to every game has to be accessible to every player no game can be too difficult or too complex. I honestly mean no trolling with this question.
  6. What exactly is the end goal of the social justice clique? Do all games need to represent all groups all the time? Do games have to be suitable for "everyone"? I genuinely am curious what the end game is.
  7. Censorship BE GONE mod Two versions, one restores original limerick, 2nd version adds both. Requires Bester's excellent IE mod 4.6. http://www.nexusmods.com/pillarsofeternity/mods/28/?
  8. I'm already looking at this. It should be quite easy in theory, as it's all stored in an XML file.
  9. Make it better by destroying artistic integrity and freedom of expression? But if Obsidian decided to remove it isn't that what you are doing? They removed it AFTER someone complained. They removed ORIGINAL content in order to appease one hateful individual. What next? Is someone gonna take offence to Durance's hilarious and often "inappropriate" dialogue and demand the removal of that? Where does it end?
  10. Make it better by destroying artistic integrity and freedom of expression?
  11. Bah mod approval, things have moved on since first post. So for the moment we know that the memorial was replaced, the question is was this instigated by the backer or by Obsidian?
  12. Did the backer at least get his $500 back before Obsidian caved to terrorists? Didn't even put it in the patch notes, how cowardly. https://twitter.com/ExcaliburLost/status/584074243048112128 Cant EDIT: I'm not censoring folks. As long as your post doesn't break guidelines, they'll be approved, heated or not. ...But let's keep this to one thread. New threads on the subject will be locked or merged with one thread.
  13. There are backups of the memorial xml file on the net. If they censor it'll get modded back in, and I'll do my best to make sure said mod is spread as far as possible. Never negotiate with terrorists.
