Weekly Recap March 17th: Blizzard’s War On Memes, Feminists Harass Female E-Sports Caster
Weekly Recap
(Last Updated On: March 17, 2018)

Every time it seems there’s any bit of progress being made when it comes to releasing uncensored games in the West, some crazy institution has to step up and prove that they’re listening to the SJW menace, and that they simply do not want gamers to have fun. That’s exactly what happened when the VSC banned Omega Labyrinth Z from being rated because they felt little kids might pick it up and start practicing going spelunking and using magic sausages to enlarge their breasts before they hit puberty.

If you thought that was bad, well it gets worst. Earlier in the week some feminists decided to attack e-sports caster Soe Ggschwind-Penski, because she decided to thank men on International Women’s Day. Yes, feminists harassed and textually attacked a woman because she thanked some men. It’s probably because they were jealous that Soe isn’t a 300lb ham beast with purple hair and more piercings than a pin cushion at the Stitches in Time quilting convention.

But it gets even worse!

Blizzard has waged a war on high-risk memes, fining a handful of players and coaches for using the Tryhard emote and re-sharing a meme about Hiroshima. Ever since launching Overwatch, the ultimate SJW game, Blizzard seems to be more uptight than a cat’s puckered bunghole during heat. These stories and so much more in this March 17th, 2018 edition of the Weekly Recap.


Blizzard Fines Overwatch Players For High-Risk Meme

Spreading high-risk dank memes on social media is now grounds for an instant fine in the world of Overwatch League. A bunch of players found themselves being fined for either sharing memes online, or using emojis during a Twitch stream. Yes, using black-people emojis during a stream is now considered to be “racist” and “toxic” according to Blizzard. Netflix continues to bungle their own reputation by reviving classics like Reboot, but average television viewers and streamers are having none of it, and are thankfully hammering Netflix with tons of criticism for it. Maidens of Michael, a yuri visual novel, was inexplicably removed from Steam and there’s no word on if it’ll ever come back. Some new footage of the cancelled Star Wars: Battlefront 3 has surfaced. And some nude mods have popped up for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, in case you were interested.


Omega Labyrinth Z Banned In The U.K.

The U.K., has banned the sale of Omega Labyrinth Z on the grounds that it contains sexual interactions that might influence younger gamers. Instead of just rating it 18+ like PEGI, the VSC in the U.K., simply decided to ban the game. Speaking of crazy times in the U.K., there’s been a delay on the age rating I.D., check and so it won’t go into effect until late 2018. A new shooting game called The American Dream is designed to trigger people who either worships guns a little too much or hates them altogether. Either way, Samurai Punk’s title will trigger people. There are rumors swirling that Ubisoft could be reviving Splinter Cell this year, but it’s just a rumor. And after 15 years on hiatus, Kylotonn is reviving the V-Rally franchise with V-Rally 4.


Tomb Raider Movie Gets Raided With Negative Reviews by Critics

De-sexifying Lara Croft didn’t help much with convincing movie critics that the new rebooted Tomb Raider movie is anything more than a poorly constructed cash-in of the 2013 game. It also turns out that most movie critics aren’t interested in locking their eyes on the screen for a heroine who looks like a 12-year-old boy, proving that pederasty is still a pastime fixation chiefly spearheaded by the executives in Hollywood. On the brighter end of the spectrum, at least Geralt from CD Projekt Red’s depiction of The Witcher will be making his first out-of-Witcher game series debut in Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur VI. Vice Media decided to cut ties with its co-founder and CEO Shane Smith following a string of sexual misconduct cases, opting to replace Smith with a woman. And the final in the origin story trilogy for Lara Croft is due out in September, and it’s called Shadow of the Tomb Raider.


Gamers Call Out CityNews Toronto For Shoddy Journalism

A CityNews Toronto reporter sideswiped gamers by interviewing them about their gaming habits, only to use the clips in a piece that essentially painted the hobby in a less than worthwhile piece centered around video game addiction and the World Health Organization classifying the negative aspects of the hobby as a mental health disorder. EA is bringing back microtransactions for Star Wars: Battlefront II, only this time around they’re focusing on cosmetics instead of pay-to-win mechanics. Overkill Software has unleashed Payday 2 VR onto the Steam store, giving Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners something to sink their HMDs into. Ubisoft announced that The Crew 2 is set to arrive this June. And a bunch of Sega Genesis classics are coming to both home consoles and PC this year.
