YouTube Markiplier

Additional coverage and news have surfaced for the Crash Override Network leaks for those who haven’t been paying attention. Deep Freeze updated the database to let people know that the incestuous pit of slugs in an orgy of unethical behavior continues to squirm and worm its way through the industry, especially after some new connections were found following the public leak of the Crash Override Network chat logs.

The CON leaks seemed to take a backseat for slightly more disturbing news coming out of the YouTube front, as the company claims they’ve been more forthcoming with notifications about demontization, but it also appears as if they’re using it to cut funding to certain kinds of critical content, putting a lot of YouTubers on the edge of their heels when it comes to dealing with the video giant. There’s also a lot of journalists screaming “Rape!” at Dead or Alive Xtreme 3’s VR update. These stories and more in this September 3rd, 2016 edition of the Weekly Recap.


Mighty No. 9 Former Community Manager Tried Injecting SJW Politics Into The Game

There’s nothing worse than knowing a game partially tanked because of suspicions of sabotaging. Worse yet is when the “I told you so!” moment is somewhat ruined because it resulted in something you loved turning into pure crap because people didn’t listen. That’s exactly what happened when the Crash Override Network chat logs were leaked and it revealed that the former community manager for Mighty No. 9 was attempting to inject Social Justice Warrior and third-wave feminism politics into the game, much to the fear and disgust of some backers who were well aware of the community manager’s social media antics. Oh and speaking of the CON leaks, sites like Kotaku, Polygon and Jezebel have been made well aware of the leaks. And refunds are going wild and fierce for No Man’s Sky, including for people who have played the game for more than two hours.


Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 VR Triggers SJWs

Journalists are getting uber-triggered over the new VR update coming to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3. The game lets you fondle, poke and pry at the bikini-clad fighters from the series in full-on virtual reality. The update will only be available for the PlayStation VR and it’s not being released in America. No titties for you. In the ethics in journalism front, a journalist was fired by the Huffington Post because he mentioned Hillary Clinton’s health… and not entirely in a positive way. The writer was quickly booted from the site and his recent work expunged. The 2.5 update for Star Citizen has gone live, featuring a lot of the content that gamers have been salivating over for the past couple of years. And a recent trailer for the visually terrifying game Agony has revealed that the tour-the-hell will be making its way to the Xbox One and the PS4 in 2017.


YouTube Cracks Down On Anti-SJW Videos

YouTube has begun enforcing their rules about controversial content and advertising. They apparently don’t want people talking about things like Social Justice Warriors and other conroversial subject matter, thus they’ve been retroactively de-monetizing videos. EA and DICE have put Battlefield 1 into open beta on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and if you managed to get a key then it’s possible to join in on the action. The Xbox One and Xbox 360’s Games With Gold for September have been detailed. And System Shock 3 has entered into full development production.


Deep Freeze Updated Following CON Leaks

Some new entries have been added to the Deep Freeze database following the release of the Crash Override Network chat log leaks. The database has added nine new entries, including people such as Danny O’Dwyer and Philip Kollar, all of which covered Zoe Quinn without disclosure. A new program called Sceelix will let players build their own worlds to play around in, allowing everything from basic voxels to fa more complex environments. YouTube’s crackdown on controversial videos continue, with them cracking down on various political videos in an attempt to curb people from making money on certain kinds of content, this time they’ve targeted a video critical of Hillary Clinton and telling people not to vote for the Democratic nominated hopeful. Mortal Kombat XL is also coming to PC after a lot of people were worried about Warner Bros., giving up on PC gamers, proving that they haven’t completely gone to the dark side. And PQube made it known that they were committed to keeping the game Gal*Gun uncensored for its Western release… so it’s not all despair and ruin in the world of interactive entertainment.
