Weekly Recap April 21st: Bully Hunters Shut Down, Vice Dislikes Black People In Far Cry 5
Weekly Recap

Vice recently put together an editorial that probably had Richard Spencer smiling from ear to ear and nodding gleefully. In the piece, Vice complained about too many black people popping up in Far Cry 5. This spawned a conversation about the lack of realism in Far Cry 5, and how a war over ethnocentrism would have both made the game more realistic and relevant to today’s caustic political environment regarding race relations.

While some gamers weren’t able to hunt down and kill specific races in Far Cry 5, the sponsors and organizers for Bully Hunters hunted down and killed off any trace of a potential future for the controversial project. The monumental failure that was the Bully Hunters was exposed and put down by its organizers behind the shed of shame.

These stories and more in this April 21st, 2018 edition of the Weekly Recap.

Bully Hunters Gets Sponsorship Enema

It turns out that all of that Bully Hunters mumbo jumbo was bullcrap.

Bully Hunters Officially Shuts Down

After losing all of their sponsors and being called out by their own hosts, the Bully Hunters is now officially toast. The service had its plug pulled after everyone abandoned it, save for the corrupt, anti-gaming media, who stood by its side until the very end. Classic handheld games are being included in Kingdom Hearts 3, while EA’s Patrick Soderland has said that they’ve heard fans and have learned from their evil mistakes, promising not to go back down the route of premium loot boxes in Star Wars: Battlefront games again. Even after the delays, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana launched on PC a broken mess, with NIS America promising to fix it as soon as possible. A marketing research firm did a look-see into loot box microtransactions and discovered what gamers already know: loot boxes need regulation!

There’s no new date in sight at all. The official release date for Agony has been set for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One after a minor delay, managing to nab a May 29th release date. And while Agony may have received its release date, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr was actually moved out of its original release date and has been delayed to June 5th. A God of War gameplay walkthrough is available for those interested in old-man Kratos’ latest adventures with his wife’s son.
