“Where are you, Nick Monroe?” I’m on Telegram/Minds/GAB/Parler. But mostly Telegram.

It was the perfect storm. At the same time, we had incidents from the NBA, Blizzard Entertainment, and South Park all hitting the same controversy. The China problem. What makes this significant is the fact that 1.) it broke into the Western stream of consciousness. 2.) The censorship issues at hand hit sports, video games, and television alike. The iron fist of Xi Jinping takes no prisoners. Jinping is the leader of China. I’d call him the president but he has accumulated so many other secondary leadership titles, that they all mush together into the dictator sort of status you’d expect from an oppressive regime.

Diablo 4 Will Be Always-On Just Like Diablo 3

Diablo 4

One of the biggest issues that gamers initially had with Diablo 3 was that the game launched as an always-on title, preventing players from playing offline in single-player due to the Real-Money Auction House integration. Home consoles were given the option to play Diablo 3 offline following the removal of the RMAH, but it looks like Diablo 4 will pick up the tradition of forcing players to stay online to play the game.

All they see is someone’s skin color as the identity of their character and apply reductionism to that character in order to brandish their race as a talking point for virtue signaling. That’s exactly what Blizzard is doing with World of Warcraft. Continue reading “World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Will Add More Racial Customization Features”

World Of Warcraft Guild “Make Azeroth Great Again” Name Censored By Blizzard

Trump World of Warcraft

Censorship seems to be Blizzard’s go-to idiosyncrasy in recent times, especially when it comes to anything related to expressing a kinship for freedom, supporting the American President, or even satirically referencing one of his catch phrases.

Congress Issues Bipartisan Letter Calling Out Blizzard Over Chinese Collusion

In dubious fashion when people were heading home last Friday, Blizzard released their statement on the Blitzchung incident outlining their position and what was to occur going forward. Any hopes Blizzard had for the news to die over the weekend were crushed as numerous outlets, content creators, and even former employees took notice of the contents of the message and exposed it for the hypocritical, PR legalese that it was. Now returning the favor, five congressmen: Ron Wyden, Mark Rubio, Aleandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mike Gallagher, and Tom Malinowski have issued a bi-partisan letter addressed directly to Activision/Blizzard’s CEO Robert Kotick on Friday as well. Whether the timing is purely coincidental or an intentional action in response to Blizzards last issuance is unknown, but the timing is suspiciously coincidental to say the least.

Nintendo Reportedly Offering Refunds for Overwatch Pre-Orders

Nintendo as a company is known for some inventive consoles, fantastic first party titles and a complete unwillingness to give refunds for digital purchases of any kind except when they absolutely have to.

This company is so incensed by Blizzards human rights violation, however, that they have reportedly begun allowing some refunds for Overwatch pre-orders for those contacting customer support and requesting one.
