Another player, who is white but says he often makes black in-game characters to add “diversity” to his friend group, told The Verge that every single time he kills someone in Red Dead Online, he gets called the n-word. It doesn’t offend him, he claims, but it still happens.
Lol

Quote
Jared Rosen plays online as a black woman. (“I didn’t want to be another white cowboy,” he says.)
lol
Quote
It got bad enough that Rosen says he now walks around with a sawed-off shotgun, so he can dispose of assholes more quickly. He also spent in-game money to make his guns look as menacing as possible to deter players from picking fights with him, though it doesn’t always work.
lol

Quote
It also only happens with characters who appear white in-game. “The women and black characters are 5000% more chill and we all have a kind of silent understanding to leave one another alone,” Rosen says.
:dead

Journalizm is asking your white sjw bros to tell you how racist people are online.

It'd be like posting on a forum with an avatar that might influence other posters to think that you were African American. When in fact, you exist on the extreme opposite of that scale.

That looks like the kind of boorish white dude that would play a black woman online, he probably cusses out black chicks on Tinder for not going out with him

Bisexual characters don't exist.

even if you played kassandra completely gay, there's a very key plot reason as to why she'd want to get pregnant. and there's more or less one way to do that in ancient greece.

Right? You can't have genetic memories to tap into if your ancestors don't procreate.  :doge

Even so, it's their story, it's fucking DLC that these spergs don't have to play to keep their gay headcannon Kassandra gay for as long as they live.

I will agree with you if Ubisoft didn’t latch in “you can choice how you MC behaves and who fucks”.

AssCreed stories are terrible regardless, though.

The Wrasslegaf/ERA thread is so miserable. 80% of the thread is "I like this person" followed by "You can't like this person, they said this thing" and then circle jerking "ya fuck that fuck".

I suppose that's all of RE, though.

Your behavior in game has zero bearing on the overall story though. Be a mean fucker, save a town, fuck everyone, kill yo dad, it doesn't matter in the outcome of the story. You have more choice over what armor your character wears than what your characters personality is.

It is sorta like getting upset that Peter Parker likes Mary Jane

Alexios and Cassandra are malleable to a certain extent, but Ubisoft is still trying to tell a story and having a baby is part of that story.

Bisexual characters don't exist.

Sure, but if I've been playing Alexios completely gay, it's fucking dumb to force a kid onto him. For one, I turned down their romance option, for the other, I had no intention of screwing a woman as Alexios in-game.

So, yes, it's a valid complaint, Stufte. I figured you with your daughter would understand this better.

Alexios isn't gay though, even if you play him that way. He's bi. He has a kid. It's part of the story.

My Kassandra only slept with the super horny old lady and that was it. I turned down every other advance.

It's forced-bi. The character I played is completely gay until this DLC/story-expansion.

It's a complete forced choice after all that talk about "you can make the character the way you want to make them!"

Also the bold is bullshit. Only in you and Ubisoft's head-cannon is that true. And that's ONLY because they forced the choice. Before this DLC I could play with a total :snob Disregard women, acquire men :phil . thought-train and be 100% gay.

I mean I get the complaint... Though the writing could justify it, maybe. Pressure to reproduce and have an heir, regardless of one's preferences or tastes in the matter, certainly was and is a thing. People on Era spoke of "forced romance" but that is what it was in that pseudo historical setting. Perhaps the dialogue can acknowledge that if you don't show interest in the mandatory mate. Perhaps I'm giving Ubi too much credit here, I'm speculating.

Then, there is, what is for me, the worst part. I’m a lesbian. I was happy to be able to play a character like myself the same way guys or straight women who play games do. Ubisoft made a big fucking deal of being able to choose your character’s sexual orientation. It was part of their marketing campaign. They used what is clearly a lie to sell the game. Lesbians don’t fall in love with men, we don’t have sex with men (except for closeted women who do what they must to survive), we don’t cuddle with men, don’t pine away for men, and don’t long for them when they leave. I’ve had male friends move or die, and I miss them terribly. But! I do it because we were friends and you miss friends.

I know a lot of people who are here won’t get this or care because of the demographics and social leanings of gamers.[/u] What Ubisoft did was dangerous because these tropes about lesbians enter our real lives. When entertainment media do this to lesbian characters, it reinforces the myth that all we need is a good man to see the light, that we are secretly longing for a man, or that we can be turned. That type of thing gets us killed, injured, and sexually harassed. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that and been hounded by men when I tell them I’m not interested in them sexually and why. They cite movies, celebrities who claim to be lesbians for attention but end up with men, books, television shows, and movies as “proof” that we can be changed. When I still rebuffed their advances, sometimes these men escalated it to verbal assault, spitting, and putting their hands on me while calling me a dyke or other slurs. I’m glad Ubisoft gave them a game to cite, now. By the way, I don’t live in some hick town in the Bible Belt. I live in Manhattan, one of the most liberal cities in the world.

Lesbians across the world are subject to what is known as “corrective rape” in order to make us straight. I know another lesbian who was raped for this very reason. It wasn’t a corrective rape ordered by the government or at the behest of a tyrannical religious family, but by regular guys they knew from around. They joked, “You’re straight now, bitch.” Entertainment media contribute to this and Ubisoft joined them.

Ubisoft’s games are played around the world by young impressionable men who’ll take this and add this to their memory bank. I wouldn’t have bought the game if I knew this was going to play out this way because I don’t finance my own oppression or that of others. I don’t finance my own humiliation or that of other groups. Ubisoft, by flat out lying, made me an accomplice to compulsory heterosexuality and dangerous media tropes.

GaYz DoN't ExIsT. As you distinguished mentally-challenged fellowedly retort, Stufte.

You really don't have a pot to piss in when it comes to this beyond your daughter. If she's like "who gives a shit?" Cool. But there's valid reasons to complain about this and it's something, you a 100% straight-man will not understand.

Then, there is, what is for me, the worst part. I’m a lesbian. I was happy to be able to play a character like myself the same way guys or straight women who play games do. Ubisoft made a big fucking deal of being able to choose your character’s sexual orientation. It was part of their marketing campaign. They used what is clearly a lie to sell the game. Lesbians don’t fall in love with men, we don’t have sex with men (except for closeted women who do what they must to survive), we don’t cuddle with men, don’t pine away for men, and don’t long for them when they leave. I’ve had male friends move or die, and I miss them terribly. But! I do it because we were friends and you miss friends.

I know a lot of people who are here won’t get this or care because of the demographics and social leanings of gamers.[/u] What Ubisoft did was dangerous because these tropes about lesbians enter our real lives. When entertainment media do this to lesbian characters, it reinforces the myth that all we need is a good man to see the light, that we are secretly longing for a man, or that we can be turned. That type of thing gets us killed, injured, and sexually harassed. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that and been hounded by men when I tell them I’m not interested in them sexually and why. They cite movies, celebrities who claim to be lesbians for attention but end up with men, books, television shows, and movies as “proof” that we can be changed. When I still rebuffed their advances, sometimes these men escalated it to verbal assault, spitting, and putting their hands on me while calling me a dyke or other slurs. I’m glad Ubisoft gave them a game to cite, now. By the way, I don’t live in some hick town in the Bible Belt. I live in Manhattan, one of the most liberal cities in the world.

Lesbians across the world are subject to what is known as “corrective rape” in order to make us straight. I know another lesbian who was raped for this very reason. It wasn’t a corrective rape ordered by the government or at the behest of a tyrannical religious family, but by regular guys they knew from around. They joked, “You’re straight now, bitch.” Entertainment media contribute to this and Ubisoft joined them.

Ubisoft’s games are played around the world by young impressionable men who’ll take this and add this to their memory bank. I wouldn’t have bought the game if I knew this was going to play out this way because I don’t finance my own oppression or that of others. I don’t finance my own humiliation or that of other groups. Ubisoft, by flat out lying, made me an accomplice to compulsory heterosexuality and dangerous media tropes.

GaYz DoN't ExIsT. As you distinguished mentally-challenged fellowedly retort, Stufte.

You really don't have a pot to piss in when it comes to this beyond your daughter. If she's like "who gives a shit?" Cool. But there's valid reasons to complain about this and it's something, you a 100% straight-man will not understand.

Shut up nerd, you're just mad that your digital boytoy is sullied by a child.

Also the bold is bullshit. Only in you and Ubisoft's head-cannon is that true. And that's ONLY because they forced the choice. Before this DLC I could play with a total :snob Disregard women, acquire men :phil . thought-train and be 100% gay.

But is murdering dudes across greece and buttsex really #thebestamancanget?

Its pretty clear he re-examined his choices of toxic masculinity, settled down, had kids and bought a Gillette Mach 5 Turbo Fusion

Yes, especially since it lead to the downfall of Greece/Rome/etc. anyway.

Ok, good to know that you in your straight ivory tower have completely no clue why people would be up in arms about this. No wonder the games industry is completely :paul -tier now a days. Forced SJW without understanding why some SJW complaints would want to be given. 100%.

This AGDQ drama

Soooo this guy flies this chick out to AGDQ and agrees to lets her stay in his room under the impression that he'll get to fuck, she changes her mind once they get there, he kicks her out, she reports him to AGDQ staff for sexual harrassment, he gets permabanned, he then cancels her plane ticket back (:dayum :dead) and proceeds to have a meltdown on Twitter while the girl herself get banned for 2 years for trying to get in with a fake ticket.

I think so, you just forgot a bit I read but didn't check too close about how he snitched her to the organizers to ingratiate himself with his ex, presumably after she gave him the cold shoulder.

Speedrunning, not even once.

Bisexual characters don't exist.

Sure, but if I've been playing Alexios completely gay, it's fucking dumb to force a kid onto him. For one, I turned down their romance option, for the other, I had no intention of screwing a woman as Alexios in-game.

So, yes, it's a valid complaint, Stufte. I figured you with your daughter would understand this better.

Alexios isn't gay though, even if you play him that way. He's bi. He has a kid. It's part of the story.

My Kassandra only slept with the super horny old lady and that was it. I turned down every other advance.

I mean I get the complaint... Though the writing could justify it, maybe. Pressure to reproduce and have an heir, regardless of one's preferences or tastes in the matter, certainly was and is a thing. People on Era spoke of "forced romance" but that is what it was in that pseudo historical setting. Perhaps the dialogue can acknowledge that if you don't show interest in the mandatory mate. Perhaps I'm giving Ubi too much credit here, I'm speculating.

This is way more thought than Ubisoft and stufte has clearly given it. But this would be way better than "lol tough shit you played a gay character, they're now forced-bi! Dealwithitnerd.gif "
