Weekly Recap Jan 5th: Operation Choke Point, DMC5 Lady Drama, FCC Comes For Gaming
Weekly Recap

The first week of 2019 came in with a freaking bang. Scandals, lies, and corruption were the order of the week, this included the FCC’s CVAA for disabled gamers, which forces developers making games after January 1st, 2019 to consider adding options for disabled gamers as a defacto standard. We also learned that PayPal and Mastercard aren’t the ones initiating the deplatforming, but are actually victims of bullying from the FDIC and Department of Justice’s mutant legislation that has turned into an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment in the form of “Operation Choke Point”, which began back in 2013. It’s literally like something right out of Deus Ex, only few people know about it and a heck of a lot of people are slowly being affected by it each and every day.

Oh, and Slightly Mad Studios decided to make their own game console called the Mad Box. It’s designed to rival the PS5 and whatever the heck Microsoft’s new Xbox console is supposed to be. It won’t be due out until several years for now but talk is rampant from the boys at SMS. There was also a ridiculous story where a developer from Insomniac Games who organized harassment of a female 3D artist because the artist didn’t like how Lady in Devil May Cry 5 had a man-jaw with masculine traits. These crazy-arse stories and more in this January 5th, 2019 New Year’s edition of the Weekly Recap.

Paypal, Mastercard Bans Due To Operation Choke Point
