Open Discussion: February 23rd, 2020

The last February Open Discussion is here. If you have no clue, this series is all about discussing old, current, and new things happening around the world. You can post up anything about video games, movies, politics, and TV shows and will face no penalty or censorship when doing so. This series of discussions changes every week, but mainly focuses on video game culture.

The Open Discussion arrives every Sunday on this site and explores a variety of topics that include technology, interactive entertainment, politics, and other mediums. Moreover, like any other post on this site, no comment will face any form of censorship.

In addition to the above, if one of your comments face a form of censorship — in that it’s removed or blocked — let us know so that we can address the situation and restore your comment. Due to the acts of WordPress and Disqus, a post of yours might face problems but, as mentioned above, shoot us a message, and we’ll try to straighten things out.

With all of that said, this Open Discussion is about the new wave of companies and other manufacturers taking up a leave of absence to avoid the coronavirus. You may know that a few (or more) companies aren’t appearing at PAX East 2020 due to the said virus — like the Final Fantasy XIV team, and Sony.

With all of that said, what are your thoughts on all of this? Do you think things will get worse? Do you think things will calm down and get better, or do you think things will remain the same?

If you have something else on your mind and wish to share it on this Open Discussion board, you are more than free to post it up here. This means content or stuff unrelated to the coronavirus can be shared without being moved or taken down.

This week’s music comes from Battlefield: 1943 and is the game’s main theme:
