Weekly Recap Sept 30th: Borderlands 3, Toxic Developers, RPCS3 DMCA
Weekly Recap
(Last Updated On: September 30, 2017)

This week actually wasn’t as stupid as previous weeks. In fact, the SJWs must have begun hibernating for the fall because the last week of September was no where near as asinine as some of the previous weeks leading up to the end of summer.

Randy Pitchford from Gearbox Software has been running his mouth to keep himself relevant in the news, as well as talking about Borderlands 3 and desperately trying to build hype for the game. A former developer at Ubisoft attempted to blame gamers for some of the industry’s bad practices. And the developers working on the PS3 emulator the RPCS3 were hit by a DMCA by Atlus because some people have been using the emulator to play Persona 5. These stories and more in this September 30th, 2017 edition of the Weekly Recap.

Why Borderlands 3 Is Taking So Long

Randy Pitchford is gathering up his team to work on Borderlands 3, but they’re taking their time and they claim that they want to do it right, which is why it’s taking so long to get the game made. Hints about Battlefield 2018 could arrive as soon as the end of this year as part of the Battlefield 1 DLC pack. Nier: Automata managed to sell over 2 million copies across PC and PS4. Hajimete no Gal’s localization decided to take aim at anti-SJWs and visual novel lovers, lambasting them as “misogynists” for liking light novels. And the developers of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds decided to pick a fight with Epic Games because Epic decided to add a rip-off Battle Royale mode to their dying game Fortnite. It’s like a cripple trying to throw hands with a drunkard.

 

Former Ubisoft Dev Blames Toxic Gamers For Industry’s Ills

A former developer at Ubisoft rolled out a Twitter screed complaining about toxic gamers and blaming them for all the ills of the gaming industry, saying that developers can’t be more open because gamers are too toxic. Backers of Battle Chasers hoping to get their hands on the Nintendo Switch version of the game will be disappointed to know that the comic-book themed RPG won’t be releasing in October for Nintendo’s portable hybrid, but instead it’s been delayed to some undetermined date. Atari finally detailed the specs and possible price for the upcoming AtariBox estimating that it will be available for anywhere between $250 and $300 depending on the specs. Randy Pitchford also chimed in to talk to IGN about how good he thinks Aliens: Colonial Marines really is, and Gal Gun 2 won’t be censored when it’s localized in the West for the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch.

 

Star Trek Discovery Goes Full SJW

The Social Justice Warrior direction of Star Trek Discovery was discovered and nailed to the ground by anti-SJW critics. It was quite obvious that the show was going to pander to the third-wave feminist crowd and the white knight hordes, but some people held out hope only to be smacked over the head with the reality that this ain’t your daddy’s Star Trek. A demo for the disturbing new first-person adventure shooter Scorn has been made available following the project surpassing the Kickstarter goal. We managed to plop up a review for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, along with a Nintendo Switch review for Thimbleweed Park. A new cooperative mod for Skyrim called <Skyrim Together was announced, and Atlus went full-retard by DMCA’ing the Patreon account for the PS3 emulation team at RPCS3.
