  1. The same thing happens with Morrowind, I constantly hear people complain about the combat in Morrowind but if you take 10 minutes to read how it works it all makes sense. In some ways I prefer these combat systems, it means it is the skill of the character and not the player that matters.
  2. This dude isn't a rich powerful man then? Hypothetical situation. It gets out that that the guy who works in your local Tesco is making those exact same jokes on Twitter, it gets back to Tesco about the bad press he is receiving. Does that man still have a job in Tesco next week?
  3. Fucking Jesus fucking mother fucking Christ I can't believe I'm doing this. 1 guy talks about 'grabbing pussies' Next guy talks about a kid getting blow jobs, high school kids jerking off in front of each other. Both happened years ago One is a sick bastard and the other has a poor sense of humour. Full disclosure I think Trump is a disgusting human being and I think these tweets are disgusting as well but can you guys really not see the double standard here? You are rightly accusing the right of hypocrisy but those tweets are as equally indefensible as Trumps so called locker room talk. I have never heard any man talking about grabbing a woman's vagina and I've never heard any one tell jokes like those. Maybe I've just had a sheltered life.
  4. So every conversation a man has with a woman is sexist?
  5. This is a big part of the problem right here. People can't accept that it isn't acceptable for a company employee to interact with customers that way. The fact that she is a woman is completely irrelevant to me, it's how the person acted that matters. I still maintain that if I had posted similar replies to a customer while having their tag in my profile there by linking my views to the company's I would have been in serious trouble, most likely sacked. For fuck's sake you have to be careful how you act while simply wearing the company uniform, whether you are at work or not is irrelevant.
  6. If it had been a male developer replying to a female poster and responded with something like 'I know how to do my job and I don't need the opinions of any emotional woman to do it! I'm not here to make you feel good.' The company fires him, I wonder what the reaction would be.
  7. I'm not sure it's larger more that most gamers are internet savvy so can be even louder than the average vocal minority. Or maybe it's the way people get braver when they are behind a keyboard posting under a username.
  8. Why does everyone care what people on Reddit think anyway? Even if there are people on those forums or twitter calling for sackings why do huge companies give so much power to a vocal minority?
  9. I never said I agreed with her being fired, I'm just in no way surprised by it given the contracts I've signed, the videos I had to watch and seeing people disciplined for remarks on social media. I also don't think that they fired her because she is a woman. Slightly OT but just yesterday I was told to my face that I am only so critical of Theresa May because she is a woman. I'm not critical because I believe she is leading the UK over a cliff edge but because she is a woman.
  10. Or it could just be people attributing motives where there are none.
  11. So, no male developers ever have random people suggesting ideas on how to make games to them? The majority of people making games are men, they are never given suggestions that they have already considered and rejected? It's entirely possible the guy doesn't give a shit that the she is a woman, he is speaking to a game developer and the fact that person is a woman is of no consequence. The unqualified public give 'advice' and opinions to professionals all the time, just look at any football fan. When exactly the same thing happens but it's a man giving 'advice' and explaining how they think things should be done is that that still mansplaining?
  12. You get disciplined for posting things about customers on your personal social media accounts. If you disparage customers while acting like a spokesman for the company and having their name in your profile then I would personally expect to be fired.

    Steam

    I just used my brother's email in the end, worked fine. I'd does annoy me when companies ask you to set up another account when you buy from Steam, why isn't Steam enough?

    Steam

    I did play FF xi but I'm 99% positive I used a different email for that. If that is the case would it still be telling me there is no account linked to this email when I try to recover the account?

    Steam

    I picked up Final Fantasy vii in the sale and I go to play it, the game requires a SE account so I click create an account. I fill in the form and it rejects my email saying it is already in use which is impossible as I have never had a SE account. I click recover account and I get a message saying me email isn't associated with any account. I see an option to sign in using steam so I click that, the steam part works fine but when I get to SE asking for my email they tell me that address is already in use, despite my email address not being linked to any SE account. WTF
