I have ****ing had it with these SJWs I'm just livid at this point as of late this has been happening more and more developers walking on eggshells to appease a bunch of oversensitive twitter nitwits. Every developer that censors themselves to appease these people are all cowards in my eyes and will never see my money these people do not give a single **** about your games they just want power and they scream "I'm offended" until they get their way.

 

This whole debacle had already blown over about a day after it started Obsidian could have said nothing but no Obsidian decided to cave to a hateful SJW and her followers instead of listening to their own fans.

 

I hope your happy with the SJWs Obsidian and thanks for saving me money.

 

 

There's no reason to flip out that much, because this kind of action can be expected from ANY company.

 

It's simple: the CEO and marketing department get paid to ensure that as many costumers see the product as possible and that the game or company does not get negative press. Censoring such snippets is considered the safe option because if left unchecked, you run the risk of people claiming you're homophobes or transphobic or whatever.

 

The moment this doesn't happen is gonna be the moment a CEO or marketing department starts getting scrutiny, thus the cycle continues.

 

And that is the problem. A small minority which is most likely not even your real audience  cried about something most of us found ridiculous. They carved in and now they have to live with their actions.  You actually should carve to your paying audience  and not to some extremists.

I think it's funny that these people never consider that maybe the people at Obsidian agree with the so-called SJW.

No, it has to be that they are cowards.

I'm deeply saddened by the reaction of the community to this. That's all.

 

I'm ecstatic about the community's reaction to all of this. It is about time.  It is so nice to see the community standing up for itself and not allowing entryist SJWs who aren't even playing the game or paying for it dictate the content of our games.

No you are runing our soiceity. And I feel really sad that I have to applaud people who raised almost 1 million $ because they did not want to serve gay couples and then got threaten to death and even had to close their shop because SJW threaten to burn the place down....

 

And since I am pro gay marriage etc I think that is really really sad....

BTW a few people tried to use Erika's deadname. It's not actually Eric. That's pretty lazy of you.

 

If you're going to be a bigot and blow your whole case to hell put some more effort into it.

Disappointing to say the least.  I hope the backer gets a refund.

 

I feel like a broken record at this point, but this feels like a giant double standard towards violence in the game.  I am not sure how jokes of this kind are unacceptable, but lynchings and depictions of torture based on ideology are given a pass.  If a joke needs to be censored for society's sake, why is violence different?

 

Oh ffs.  The violence and dark themes are part of Obsidian's vision for the game and the story it tells.  The joke was not part of their vision and was deemed tasteless after someone complained about it.  Assuming that they would change elements of the actual game under minimal pressure because they decided they didn't want a questionable joke from a backer in it is completely absurd.

Agreed.  People made their case on both sides of the issue.  Obsidian listened and made up its own mind about how best to respond.  Respect their decision and move on.  The prolonged and irrational anti-"SJW" tantrum is effing infantile.

 

No it is just freedom of speech. And a reaction to their behavior since its getting more and more stupid every day.  And now the line is almost completely crossed for many people. 

 

 

Whose behavior?  From where I'm sitting, it seems both "sides" get way out of control and lose all sense of objectivity and rational thought almost every single time.

 

As for freedom of speech, indeed.  People on both sides exercised their freedom of speech to make their case.  Obsidian was 100% free to react in whatever way it felt best.  That's how freedom of speech and public debate are SUPPOSED to work.

I love how you dudes cry about how us "sjws" don't even play games, and yet the person who brought this up on twitter is playing the game! (And I'm on my second playthrough right now. Love this game so much.)

It has nothing to do with freedom of speech. Pillars of Eternity is an owned property of Obsidian Entertainment, a private company, who can do with it whatever they please. Backer content was submitted with the understanding that it would be vetted by that same entity. No speech is being impinged here. You are very confused about what speech you are entitled to if you think otherwise.

 

What I do see is another eruption from the videogame community that has, over the last year or so, revealed itself to be deeply regressive, deeply out of touch, and at times downright hateful. I'm sorry one of my favorite developers has to bear the brunt of another such eruption, but they owe you nothing. If you are offended by this, you are on the wrong side of history. At best, you can hope to look back on this and shake your head at your younger self.

 

At best.

Might i ask why? It's a lively discussion, some over the top reactions (OMG censorship, never buy again etc.) as always, but no/barely criticism of the LGBT-community, no god invoking bible-belters etc. For a discussion on a message board, it's quite civil imo

 

Edit: Just saw your response to Darji, and i don't agree. I think a big majority of the posters are quite civil and try to agrument, not just argue. Refreshing, especially compared to flame wars on some FPS or RTS boards, or on YT.

Good job, you got a harmless joke altered by greatly exaggerating what it was. Here's a star.

Yep, something should probably be done about it, but at the same time, you can't exactly scream at Obsidian for NOT being bold enough to brave the risky path. You're essentially trying to convict Obsidian for NOT wanting to be apart of your war, your movement and your statement. That's not exactly fair. If you want to do an Occupy Wallstreet movement for example and I don't, then do I deserve conviction of a crime for not taking part...?

 

Having said that, I do think it's becoming clear that the risky path might not be as risky as once perceived. Who'll pick up on that first is anyone's guess.

I dont know if you noticed it but they are using it to insult this person because they are upset. Just like she wants to kill all men because she is frustrated and upset.

You're right, I have no interest in playing this game and only shelled out $200 to get a fancy badge on a relatively obscure videogame forum.

Made up their own minds my ass they wouldn't done anything if it weren't for some twitter **** screaming at them.

 

 

So what?  They were 100% free to tell that person to go pound sand OR to think about it and decide they agree.  Nobody forced anyone to do anything.  People expressed their opinions, good or bad, maturely or childishly, and Obsidian made up its mind on how to react.  Period.  You just don't like it because you weren't on the "winning" side this time.  It's hard being on the wrong side of history.  Happens to us all and sucks when it does.

Can someone please tell me what this joke was that pissed off the LGBT crowd?  I just got into a nasty verbal fight with some of them over on another site.  Was it that bad?

No, a fanbase fellating a company and not telling them when they have wronged them is what happened to Bioware and we lost them forever.

You're delusional if you really think the people who tweet about killing all men genuinely desire to do so. 

 

This makes it ok to spout hate speech...?
