Weekly Recap June 2nd, 2018: Agony’s Censorship Conundrum, SJWs Attempt To Smear TotalBiscuit
Weekly Recap

The beginning of the week was nothing more than a giant ball pit of embarrassment if you’re aligned with the Social Justice Warrior camp. A bunch of drama-baiting sperglords used their social media accounts to smear, defame, denigrate, castigate and excoriate John “TotalBiscuit” Bain. Things kind of backfired for some of them given that some of the most visible critics of TotalBiscuit after he passed away, happened to be developers at top name AAA outfits, such as Electronic Arts and Blizzard Entertainment.

Gamers were quick to drag those pro-SJW companies through the mud for being disrespectful mouth-breathers.

The last half of the week saw Madmind Studios tripping over themselves trying to deal with not releasing the uncensored patch for Agony. After promising an uncensored patch, they then reneged on it, citing legal issues. However, they finally rounded out the week by saying that they hope they can release an uncensored patch for a DRM-free GOG.com version. So we’ll see where that takes them.

These stories and more in this June 2nd, 2018 edition of the Weekly Recap.
