Weekly Recap May 14th: Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Gets Millions Of Dislikes
(Last Updated On: May 14, 2016)

The big topic of the web was how sexist and misogynistic the whole world is against the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. The real story was that the Ghostbusters reboot doesn’t hold a candle to the amount of hate and dislikes that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare received, making it one of the most hated videos on all of YouTube with more than 2 million dislikes. But yeah… let’s just keep believing a bunch of misogynists run the internet… because reasons.

On a separate note, it turns out that Facebook censors various topics and trends in order to control what users see in their feeds. Star Trek Online will be making its way ot home consoles this fall, and Blizzard has something very special in store for hackers and cheaters in Overwatch when it launches at the end of May. These stories and more in this May 14th, 2016 edition of the Weekly Recap here at One Angry Gamer.

 


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Gets Lots Of Hate

Forced to pay for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in order to get their hands on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the newest game in the series has picked up a lot of ire from core fans, even more-so than the trailer for the Ghostbusters flick. The latest Cemu build is out, allowing gamers to play Wii U titles on the emulator with higher resolutions and cleaner textures. Nvidia announced that the GTX 1080 is coming May 27th at the end of the month and it’s a powerful beast with some amazing tech under the hood. And The Witcher 3’s upcoming Blood & Wine DLC expansion is set to go live on May 30th.

 


Facebook Censors Topics They Don’t Like

Former employees of Facebook have claimed that the managers over the content management would censor or force topics into the trending segments in order to make people care about certain kinds of content. They use what’s call an “injection tool” to control what you see on Facebook. A new game called The Last Leviathan has managed to get Greenlit for Steam, it’s being described as Space Engineers in water. Capcom has taken up the mantle of being pro-diversity. They want to put more women in roles of management while leveraging their sales in China… oh yeah and Street Fighter V only sold 1.4 million copies. Paradox Interactive’s highly anticipated Stellaris has launched and gamers are really into the diplomatic strategy game.

 


Star Trek Online Is Trekking To Home Consoles

Cryptic Studios has announced that they will be bringing their space frontier MMO, Star Trek Online, to the Xbox One and the PS4 this fall. The first official trailer for Ubisoft and 20th Century Fox’s Assassin’s Creed movie has gone live, and it features the odd musical choice of Kanye West. The official release date for The Banner Saga 2 on home consoles has been revealed as July 26th. Civilization VI has been unveiled by Firaxis and 2K Games, along with the announcement that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice is coming to the Nintendo 3DS this September.

 


Overwatch Cheaters Will Get Permabanned

If you think that you can try to cheat your way to victory in Overwatch, keep in mind that Blizzard will be watching. They will have a zero-tolerance policy for cheaters, resulting in permanent bans. A new 16-bit style RPG called Ruin of the Reckless has landed on Greenlight, you can vote for the game right now if you think it’s your cup of tea. A demo for King of Fighters XIV will be present at this year’s CES 2016. Monster Hunter Generations‘ release date has been set, along with receiving a brand New Nintendo 3DS XL to accompany it. Fear Effect Sedna has also managed to finish up its Kickstarter, and now it’s set to arrive next spring for home consoles and PC. And there are some naughty new mods that have become available for Street Fighter V that are worth checking out, along with a cool homage to Full Metal Alchemist.

    I wanted to complain about this somewhere:
    Earlier, a JP friend suddenly told me their PC started installing Windows 10 by itself. To help them, I tried looking up a solution in Japanese, and found tons and tons of people complaining about Windows 10 installing by itself, making their PC slow as shit, etc. People said they literally stepped away from the computer for 20 minutes, and returned to find it installing Windows 10.

    I’d been hearing for months about Microsoft being increasingly aggressive and forcing people to upgrade. I’d even seen JP livestreamers complaining about Windows nagging to upgrade, despite telling it a firm “NO!!!” multiple times. Some of those people use applications for their livelihood that become non-functional under Windows 10. Microsoft doesn’t give a damn.

    This is the first time someone close to me as been literally forced into upgrading against their will. Their PC is so old that I’m sure Windows 10 will slow it to a crawl, and they’re so poor that they can’t upgrade. I’d already warned my other friends ahead of time, and taught them how to prevent the nagging and forced installation.

    Microsoft continues to ignore and/or violate basic human rights without being held responsible. It’s absolutely disgusting.

    • Whoa…. that’s very serious. I know they had a free installation period for Windows 10 but this is the first time I’ve heard about Windows 10 automatically installing. I’ll have to check into this further.

      Thanks for the heads-up.

      • C G Saturation

        If you do a Google search and type “Windows 10 is installing” you’ll see the recommended results are automatically “by itself”, “without permission”, etc. The same happens in Japanese.

        Microsoft seems to be trying to make it super difficult to NOT upgrade to Windows 10, so that people will give up and upgrade. I’ve heard the installation files are automatically downloaded by Windows Update and waiting in the wings, regardless of whether people actually want to install or not.

        Thankfully, I’d heard about the nagging problem early and prevented it by removing or not installing certain Windows update patches, so I’ve never seen it myself. From what I’ve seen and heard, it sounds annoying as hell.

        I had to ask another JP friend who is good with computers and uses the same method. They linked me a list of those patches with instructions in Japanese so that I could pass it onto the other friend. Easier than trying to explain it step by step.

        Here are some of the articles I’d previously seen:
        http://www.zdnet.com/article/microsofts-latest-windows-10-nag-screen-upgrade-now-or-upgrade-tonight/
        https://www.yahoo.com/tech/microsoft-now-aggressively-pushing-windows-140551286.html
        http://www.infoworld.com/article/3015238/microsoft-windows/microsoft-narrows-win10-upgrade-options-to-upgrade-now-or-upgrade-tonight.html
        http://www.computerworld.com/article/2906810/microsoft-seeds-windows-7-81-pcs-with-windows-10-upgrade-nag-notices.html

        • Just published the article. After I made the comment I started reading up on it and lo and behold, you were right. That’s some vile and nasty stuff Microsoft is doing, especially for people — as you mentioned — who don’t have the PCs necessary to run Windows 10.

          • C G Saturation

            Thanks! I mentioned this before, but I think it’s especially nasty because the incompatibility issues have a very high chance of destroying people’s ability to do their job.

            There’s also been stuff happening like the Windows 10 upgrade nag screen showing up in the middle of public presentations, including one weather channel.

            Just from the way Microsoft does things, I can tell they really don’t give a damn about anyone else. Another example is Skype originally having the ability to change themes, until Microsoft bought them out and removed it. People begged for a dark theme for decades, and only very recently they added that feature to the phone and Windows 10 versions. I can’t seem to find the option on the non-Windows 10 version. Assholes.

    Good of that youtuber to mention false positives, however what he doesnt mention is once you have the CHEATER brand nobody will spare 2 seconds to listen to you, nobody will believe you and you will only get weaponized smugness whenever you try to complain

    Its a pretty ugly thing because it effectively censors the branded ones making very hard for any kind of real false positive statistic or article to get started

    The best example i can remember is back when Batman Arkham Asylum was released for PC, the pirate release missed a DRM flag and Batman would not be able to glide, gaming sites went full smugness with that one, openly masturbating over the thought pirates got the shaft, in reality that game got a working crackfix a handful of hours later, most pirates got the fix before they finished downloading the 10gb game, yet nobody ever entertained the idea that any of the many ppl complaining could be a false positive

    Do not support these systems, they are BULLSHIT, force them to actually take programming solutions to them, they CAN make the game more robust, they just dont want to pay for it

    • C G Saturation

      I get the impression that when companies make those kinds of systems, it’s usually just to placate the masses. They don’t care about false positives because they can use those as an example to prove the system “works”. If there were no results, people would doubt its effectiveness.

      A lot of things seem to work that way nowadays.

      • LurkerJK

        Probably, makes sense for short lived games, just shut up the complains and ride the vengeance high, by the time the dust settles you moved on to the sequel and nobody cares the game became cheat central

        It does not make sense for supposedly long lived games like Overwatch tho
