    That's hardly the problem. Companies have always tried to avoid anything that could damage their image.

    OK, maybe more today than usual, but the real problem is the things that have come to be seen as damaging these days.

    Essentially anything is a problem if you find somebody to cry about it. Which is not only retarded, it's actually extremely dangerous.

    I think some people are not fully understanding what's going on here. It's not really about Chris Avellone being accused of some crime or misdemeanor for which there is no proof. The he said/she said stuff is just a sideshow.

    The loudest voices of the millennial generation have decreed that certain ways in which the sexes interact are now intolerably rude and disgusting. Picking up chicks the way Chris did in 2013 is equivalent to having said the word "nigger". That's not illegal either, but you still can't do it.

    So, what is a good way to pick up chicks? Because if we go by this





    I honestly can't tell anymore what isn't *intolerably rude and disgusting*. Because I'm pretty sure this means 99% of the population has raped and is getting raped everyday.

    That is not much of a distinction there. Resetera writes off everyone, including its own users. Have you seen its ban list? It has no respect for itself.

    Who gives a fuck what they think? ResetEra brands you as a nazi if you can't recite the 9001 genders on command.

    They hate us already anyway, and to me that's a sign we're doing something right.

    Italians? We Germans say the same! Viel Feind, viel Ehr!
    You took it from the German Georg von Frundsberg when he attacked Venetia in the 15th century. Thieves! It was his motto!

    In the Italian case, nowadays it is associated with the Fascist period (though probably the Fascists themselves simply made use of what was until then a preexisting folk saying). Dunno if that's also the case with its German variant.

    Like I said, the motto of some German chad from the 15th century that he used when fighting the Venetians.

    But it's all good, the Italians are a wholly respectable people. If only they didn't look like Turks so much when you go south!

    Southern Italy has a richer cultural heritage than the North. Shame that Garibaldi put an end to the Two Sicilies and condemned the region to poverty under a centralized, Northern-biased regime.

    German saying is still completely kosher. You can say that in a conversation and you only might draw a few raised eyebrows because it is a very old fashioned saying.

    So what has happened to Chris? That is, what companies/games/projects has he been dropped from?

    How much $$$ will he lose, and will he ever get hired again?

    Owlcat hasn't pulled the plug yet on their collaboration, but their Paizo overlords will surely demand it. As for getting hired again, I doubt that even indie devs would want to go near him now.

    techland dumped him (there is a possibility that sneaky poles used Chris's troubles as an excuse and in reality they had major creative disagreements);
    paradox dumped him;
    alaloth devs dumped him;
    nightdive dumped him (but they've done that many months ago after their weird system shock reimagining stopped being reimagining and was scaled down);
    raphael colantonio's new studio stopped following him on twitter, no official statement yet;
    i assume ea and disney won't hire him again for Jedi fallen order sequel;
    owlcat are waiting for it to blow over, but they may dump him if paizo ask them to do so.

    If he stays silent, and accepts his guilt - yes. If he decides to deny it - he will probably return to work, like Jeremy Soule. Less spotlight, but not out of the industry. At this point, its up to him.

    Based on his previous cuckish behavior, I am expecting the former.
