We know how terrible the world is - can we at least look at this positive news?

Yeah sure (and it is nice to see!), but - not only that, I don't think.  Not only that and brushing over the other stuff.  Not unless we've got severe anxiety, or thinking about it genuinely triggers us for some reason.

Otherwise...  Yes bad things are happening all the time, but gaming is the main hobby for most of us, and this feels like the most significant terrible thing that's been revealed in all gaming to me.  Given that, I feel like we should all (apart from that subgroup mentioned above) at least think about what this means for us.  If that thought is "it's bad but I don't feel it's worth sacrificing my paid enjoyment when I can do so little, I'll just slag ActiBlizz games off as well" then that's fair enough.  I still think it's worth a think for us all - this above any other bad thing in gaming.

(And yes I'm aware that similar things likely go on elsewhere.  All we can do is focus on the ones that come to light I think.)

Just burn the entire corporate system down. It exists to let rich old white men get away with doing whatever they want. That is literally the purpose for which companies, the stock market, the legal system, everything in Europe and America was designed. Videogames are made in that system so I'm sure even companies we don't know about have some shady shit going on.

Just buy Japanese games and Indies.

Also, partake in violent socialist revolution.

Found Jim Sterling's alt account.  (Seriously, this is basically the content of their Jimquisition this week, apart from the Japanese games/indies bit. All fury no funny.)

He says, as if Japan weren't rife with sexual harrassment. Luckily, there just aren't many women in Japanese games companies to be getting harrassed in the first place . . .

I did have this second thought myself.  At least it sounds like Nintendo has more women involved in games recently?  (Granted more than zero doesn't mean much.)  


Anyway, it's not much, but there has been the odd chink of light.  Firstly a few ActiBlizz-related voices are coming out in support (apologies for linking to a bloke's tweet); and secondly a fair few outlets, granted all smaller ones, have agreed to stop covering ActiBlizz work.  A common thing I see, and feel, about this is 'what can we do really?' so it's nice to see some people who can do a bit more fronting up.

Funny that gamexplain are in on that when they recently were said to have been overworking and underpaying their staff. (Their coverage has always been shit anyway)

I wonder why outlets have been much quicker to do this with ActiBlizz than they were with Ubi?

You could argue the consequences of Actizard's actions have proven to be more serious than Ubi's and their response was shittier too but I'm not sure that should make them any less culpable really. Good to see outlets are refusing to cover them but I'm quite disappointed there isn't that many doing it, the most annoying part is that this is still very gamer-centric news and that the wider audience will still lap up everything they serve them whilst being totally oblivious to what's happening.

I've been thinking for a long time, if the Japan thing doesn't work out I'm just gonna get into corporate and/ or environmental terrorism.

Yep, is tad annoying as I've mentioned elsewhere I heard on the radio heard on the news SM64 selling for $1.5m and my Dad even seen it on the news, ohh how your old games might be worth a fortune, now any person will go my old game worth hundreds.

And as you say mainstream media not covered something far more serious, that all the millions who buy COD will still buy it.
