    I guffawed at the 'Them' bullshit too.

    'Them' is grammatically incorrect. Transsexuals are either "he" or "she".

    Before some wise ass (probably not here, but you get them on Twitter) comes in to say "What about people with both genitals duhhh", intersex people are always assigned a gender at birth.

    The fact they put this unscientific, grammatically incorrect 'They' crap in is just pandering to a SJW audience which doesn't even exist. SJWs look down on video games, and most trannies live by normal societal standards including gender pronouns.

    "Them" will do the opposite of placate SJWs in any event, not unlike tossing a dried-up half-stick of turkey jerky to a lean springtime grizzly bear in the hopes it'll let you leave with your gunnysack stuffed with fresh-caught salmon.

    It's never enough with these people. Attempts to placate or reason with them only encourage them to keep on trying to turn an inch into an AU.

    This is the "you are being petty for noticing how petty they are" argument. If its not such a big deal why do they insist on including it, over and against all the fan's objections?

    Poor sales of blatantly SJW-ified games are a good place to start. The silent majority vote with their wallets and move on instead of engaging with the autistic screeching. I mean, I engage with the autistic screeching, but I'm a gay retard.

    Examples: Mass Effect: Andromeda, no introduction or explanation needed; the new Wolfencuck, the publicity materials for which contain a purposeful alteration of a line that, in the actual game, bluntly labels whites as an inherently evil race; etc.

    "But that's because those were shit games," you might be thinking. Yes, the two tend to go hand-in-hand, as I've been saying all along.

    Technobabylon is literally the only game I've ever heard of or played that included some blatant SJWhorning while also being pretty decent.

    The thing is, this game doesn't really have anything apart from this "they" in character creation. Anyone basing his purchase on that is far more problematic than the developers imo.

    Also yes, Andromeda and Wolfenstein were terrible games - I don't remember anything "sjw" about them. People complained about bugs and crappy animations in the first one and boring design on the second one

    BattleTech is a good game on the other hand and is selling decently for a turn-based mech game...I guess. Where do we even get data anymore?

    Felt this would be the case immediately after watching (and getting bored of) the combat preview videos.
    I feel bad for the people who were forced to QA this game.

    I'll check that, because it's possible I've been just mashing MMB like a retard by force of habit.


    Andromeda was bad in virtually every aspect, and I don't think there is an agenda on this fine earth that would've saved it.

    Wolfenstein on the other hand, might've paradoxically discouraged people by it's first installment. For instance, I played it after hearing very positive reviews, but the absolutely arcade mechanics made me keep away from any and all of its further releases, Wolfenstein 2 included.

    Technobabylon has a rather slight remark about main character having a gender change surgery at some point but that's pretty much all. But first and foremost it was a good game in its respective genre.

    As for Battletech, it appears to me the whole pronoun shit was included as a kind of troll, quite akin to "OK to be white". Technically it changes nothing aside mixed portrait pool and single dialogue string, and as such probably took 5 minutes of dev time to implement, and while it triggers some people to no end, it seems to have served it's purpose...

    Never played any of the two and I don't follow the weird forums you people do. The main issues that I read about were not "sjw"

    It's not normal in North America either. But I assume by "cucked North America" you mean state university classrooms, California, Vancouver, Seattle. Especially Seattle. :lol:

    This is what I picture when I hear an individual referred to as "them":

    Yup. How many genders are there on Facebook now? If you're gonna have more than 2, better make it a fill-in-the-blank field.

    Between this and the racial stuff, I assume there's SJW shit all over this game. It was bad enough in Dragonfall with hardcore mercenary hacker/killers going full emo, and now actual soldiers in Battletech. Give me a damn break I say.

    That's a good question, I anyway find the whole thing pointless as your sex or race or sexual preferences or whatever are completely irrelevant in the game

    There's a new group called "gender fluid" which means they don't have a gender (psychologically) regardless of personal anatomy or sexual attraction. So, you can have a guy with a penis who is attracted to women but who doesn't consider himself a man, but rather an it.

    According to this point of view, 'gender' in its entirety is a fictional concept because the difference between a man and a woman and their respective sex organs is the same as the difference between the leg on one person being half a centimeter longer than the leg on another.

    Alternatively, gender exists but is a set of more or less flexible behaviors that can be updated or changed like learning a new skill.

    It's good to see that the shitposters are out in force. Over four pages, there's one mini-review, two posts about bugs, and two posts about DRM. Rest is inane drivel from the Stormfront-wannabies. It's like Siege of Dragonspear all over again.

    I'm not going to buy it for these simple reasons:

    And that DRM thing is just the cherry on top. Sorry HBS, no purchase.

    Well, at least now we have drivel from both sides on display.

    Anyway, this has gotten p. boring. I now leave BATTLETECH in the capable hands of whichever retards buy it desperately hoping it'll actually be good.

    They often mean shit as you can buy the game, leave review and refund the game. They might mean something after 1 or 2 weeks or 1 or 2 months.
