Weekly Recap Dec 9th: Detroit Become Human Slammed For Child Abuse
Weekly Recap
(Last Updated On: December 9, 2017)

Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human is still a ways off from release, but it’s already making headlines as if it were 2005. The game is being called out by politicians and activist busybodies for encouraging child abuse. Cage and the crew now find themselves in a fight, with anti-SJWs not taking too kindly to the game’s sociopolitical messages, and politicians railing on the game for its politically incorrect portrayal of child abuse. This is what happens when you try to make statements with your games.

The Game Awards also took place this past week, but nothing notable happened other than Zachery Levy calling out microtransactions and Josef Fares putting the boots to EA for their premium loot box nonsense. Otherwise it was busy as usual, just like the rest of the stories in this December 9th, 2017 edition of the Weekly Recap.

 

Take-Two Doesn’t Think Loot Boxes Are Gambling

Take-Two came out in defense of loot boxes, claiming that they’re not gambling. They feel like some people are just picking on those poor ‘ole loot boxes. Speaking of getting picked on… some gamers are a little miffed about the costume changes in Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link, which has covered up some of the boobies and flattened some of the chests. ResetEra has taken another step in being really bizarre, this time banning someone for being too paranoid of #GamerGate and Donald Trump. Speaking of bans… Twitter has permanently banned BroTeamPill for attempting to expose a pedophile. And gamers have discovered that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 not only has loot crates but also has something called Booster Crates. Whatever could those be?

 

MSNBC Severs Ties With Sam Seder Over Rape Joke

The Left’s ridiculous “listen and believe” mantra is now starting to come back and bite them where the sun doesn’t shine. The latest victim to their ridiculous overtly politically correct agenda is Sam Seder, someone who has lost very little tears from an audience of onlookers who feel it’s just desserts to see the anti-#GamerGate radio host axed from his job1 over a seemingly sarcastic tweet. After running a hit-piece on Richard Lewis, an e-sports journalist, PCGamesN was forced to apologize thanks to the coercion of an impending legal raping. And another anti-#GamerGate website, Cracked, has had to lay off lots of its staff in the wake of massive cutbacks. And some shareholders are worried about Electronic Arts’ stock after the Star Wars: Battlefront II loot box escapades, which caused them to dive faster than a no-name boxer in a Bob Arum-promoted fight.

 

Detroit: Become Human Getting Banned?

Activists, media outlets and politicians have turned against the once SJW-friendly David Cage and Quantic Dream, claiming that Detroit: Become Human is promoting child abuse and that the game needs to be banned for giving child abusers mental jerk-off material. Luckily, weebs and otaku don’t have to worry about SJWism while playing VR dating sims like House Dating VR, which allows you to date a real Korean chick in a virtual setting. Some cryptic hints from Sean Murray points to No Man’s Sky update 1.4 on the horizon. EA reveals that Motive’s new IP will be released at some point in 2021 in the next few years. And U.S., lawmakers have hitched their campaigns to a pitch to step up against predatory loot boxes.

 

SJWs Used Glitched Image of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 To Create Controversy

It wasn’t enough to dislike Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for featuring women far sexier than any of the SJWs could ever hope or dream to become, the SJWs had to take things a step further by glitching the game, snapping an image and using it as a way to tarnish the hard work of Monolith Soft and Nintendo. Thankfully, some gamers are fighting back against this SJW menace and their lies. Patreon caught a lot of flak for going up on their fees for patrons in order for content creators to make more money. SoulCalibur VI was announced, and we got our first look at boob physics and advanced combat mechanics running on the Unreal Engine 4. Bayonetta 3 was also announced as an exclusive for the Nintendo Switch, along with the Outlast games making the leap to Nintendo’s hybrid. And a new co-op based third-person shooter based on World War Z is in development for home consoles and PC.

 

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Is 2017’s Game Of The Year

The Game Awards 2017 had its duds, but at least they pulled through and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild managed to become the 2017 Game of the Year, beating out Persona 5, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Super Mario Odyssey and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Thankfully an SJW game didn’t win. EA is reportedly contemplating not bringing back microtransactions in Star Wars: Battlefront II, but that seems kind of unlikely. From Software has a brand new game in the works, and it’s obviously not Dark Souls. The makers of Bulletstorm and Painkiller have teamed up together to work with The Astronauts on Witchfire, a new story-oriented shooter. Google is still pushing the diversity train by attempting to force more women into the game design field. It turns out that SoulCalibur VI is a soft reboot of the franchise, and there are rumors of a new Syphon Filter game being in development. Oh yeah, and a child molester lectured a judge about how sci-fi media exploits women and treats them like sex objects while being sentenced for sexually abusing a little girl. He also identifies as a male feminists.
