This week was a barn burner for the ages. There were a lot of losses, some wins, and some definite “mehs” that rounded out the week. On the losses side, legendary anime voice actor Vic Mignogna lost his case against the #KickVic planet busters. Randy Pitchford, meanwhile, managed to escape from the long arm of the law by evading any culpability for allegedly embezzling $12 million. An actor was fired from his job for posing in a seventh month old photo using the “OK” hand symbol.
On the winning side, ResetEra managed to get their cornhole cobbed by a duo of lesbian TERFS, topping off their raging boner of hatred for the developer of Heartbeat when they autistically interpreted a 41% off bundled discount of the game as an attack on trans suicide rates. Kotaku got caught and called out for allegedly charging $1,500 to use a quote in promotional material for an indie game, and Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally coming to PC.
These Clown World-approved stories and more in this October 5th, 2019 edition of the Weekly Recap.
Warner Bros Bans Corrupt Media From Joker Premiere
The media decided to clown out on Joker by trying to create a national shooting panic over the movie, so Warner Bros., did the only wise thing they’ve done in years and ban the spiteful vultures from attending the red carpet premiere of the film. Speaking of corrupt journalists… Aaron Calvin from the Des Moines Register was fired for past tweets that resurfaced after he tried using a puff piece as a hit-piece against a main who raised $1 million for a children’s hospital charity. Live by the soy… die by the soy. Oh, and on the subject of hysteria and fake news, a propaganda piece was put out by the Sandy Hook Promise to scare-monger kids on their way back to school. Also, the original composer of Duke Nukem 3D is now suing Gearbox Software, Valve, and Randy Pitchford for unpaid royalties after they re-released the game in 2016 without paying him a dime.
41% Discount Triggers ResetEra Hard
One of the big stories of the week that most press won’t be reporting on is the bundle discount for the game Heartbeat from developer Chumbosoft. The title and soundtrack were discounted by 35% off, with an additional 10% off discount, and Steam rounded the USD out to 41%, which also happens to be the national suicide attempt percentage among trans, and ResetEra went into full trigger mode. Speaking of mental illness… Disney confirmed that two alien characters in Star Wars: Resistance are gay. Why? Because Disney is all about that gayness. In other news, Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan president Atsushi Morita is departing from SIEJ as president. And also in Japanese news, Atelier Ryza managed to sell 150,000 copies in Japan on PS4 and Switch alone during the first week, so it’s off to a sparkling start and is expected to sell even more when it arrives in the U.S.
ResetEra Member Admitted To Sexually Assaulting His Stepsister
A ResetEra member sexually assaulted his sister some five years ago, admitted to it, denied it, and fell apart over it. The real story here, though, is that it’s one of the same users who lashed out at the Heartbeat developer, attempting to get them deplatformed for being “transphobic”. In similar news, the Dragon Con owner, Edward E. Kramer, was charged in court for possession of multiple pictures of child pornography. In slightly different news, the developers of the DS and 3DS Mario & Luigi RPGs, AlphaDream, has filed for bankruptcy.
A report from The Guardian revealed that multiple AAA publishers have skipped out on paying taxes in the U.K. In a separate report, it was revealed that in year-over-year performance within the same quarter, Fortnite was down by 52%. Kickstarter scuttled the Lonestar comic because they felt that it discriminated against the murdering, child-trafficking, rapist mutilators, MS-13. 2000 AD came down on comic book writer Chris Sebela for trying to sell knockoff Judge Dredd badges. And the developer of Sense: A Ghost Horror Story dropped some truth bombs, telling developers to never apologize to the outrage mobs, and that cancel culture is cancerous.
Actor Fired For Doing “OK” Hand Sign
Imagine being an actor, wearing a hot costume at Universal Orlando, taking pictures with kids and toiling away for minimum wage, when one day you find out you’ve been fired from your job. Why? Because many moons ago you played the got ’em game during a photograph with a half-breed tourist and they yelled “racism!” at the top of their lungs on Twitter. Well, that’s exactly what happened to one poor chap who found himself fired after making the “OK” hand sign, with the cancel culture on Twitter going after the guy for making the symbol.
There’s a new anime game in the works by Hiroshi Matsuyama, but we have no idea what it is. The SAG-AFTRA are trying to strong arm the gaming industry into only hiring their staff, and until they do they’re withholding any awards for the gaming industry. The PS4 has graduated from the beta for cross-play and is now live for PlayStation 4 owners. And a leaked FBI document revealed that blacks are a graver threat to the nation than white supremacists.
Mignogna Loses Case While Kotaku Charges For Quotes
A double whammy of megatons dropped for the weekend. First and foremost, anime voice actor Vic Mignogna lost his court case in Texas against Monica Rial, her boyfriend, Jaimie Marchi and funimation. It was one part due to the incompetence of his lawyer and two parts due to the fact that the judge was an absolute dunce. But that wasn’t all. Minnesota lawyer Nick Rekieta also found himself being suspended from Twitter.
In more disparaging news, Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford managed to escape from his lawsuit scot free after the judge dismissed the counter-suit claims against him for possessing underage porn and embezzling $12 million from 2K Games. Kotaku allegedly requested $1,500 just to have a quote from their negative review of I Love You, Colonel Sanders used for promotional purposes. It turns out that The Last of Us 2 was inspired by Neil Druckmann’s degenerate upbringing in Israel. And Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally coming to PC.
