Interesting thing is, they were all so keen to cause criminal damage to the statue, oh yeah, “#BLM”, and yet as soon as they’re up in court for doing just that, they’re all “not me guv….I didn’t do anything!” Surely if you’re so “anti-racist”, and oh-so-woke, you’d be only TOO KEEN to go “YES!!! That was ME!! And I’d do it all again in a heartbeat!!”
It’s almost as if you don’t actually believe in the cause you’re shrieking so loudly about.
The fact that Yahoo News, and Techcrunch, among others, are fixated on the sexual harassment claims, only demonstrates how little “tech journalists” know about the subject they’re writing about.
On Microsoft’s list of priorities when deciding factors of acquiring Activision, here’s what number sexual harassment claims came in at on the list :
See no number? Congratulations – you’re already more knowledgeable than a tech journalist.
On the other hand this news depresses me. Activision through the 90’s were responsible for releasing a mind blowing amount of different genres of games. Yes all they’re cited as now is “Call of Duty publishers Activision”, but that’s just 28 year old “tech journalists”. I know them for all manner of games from Spycraft: The Great Game to the incredibly relaxing Shanghai: Great Moments. Can you honestly imagine Microsoft ever bothering to put out a game like Spycraft?
Microsoft is also getting a track record for closing down excellent studios that it buys (originally, of course, in an almighty fanfare). I’m thinking of Lionhead, of course.
Whilst Activision themselves have of course made mistakes in more recent times, their legacy is immense and impressive. They really did seem a lot more interested in just releasing tonnes of games as opposed to “but how much money can we squeeze out of this one?”.
Just what is the point?? “Ooooh, yeah, I like to, you know, wank off by pulling my foreskin up and down very fast”….umm….and um…..then I like to do that all over again. And um…..yeah then I might do it another day too.
God how fucking boring. What happens when you’ve both told eachother your “private moments” then? Is that it? Yawn.
I have decided to install and fire-up Settlers III today.
The relevance of this is that I could never get past the latter levels to finish the lovely long single player campaign. So I’ve decided fuck it – bite the bullet, and have to difficulty on Easy. Then I still get to experience everything that made me love the game – plus the extra joy of hopefully seeing it through to the end. I’ve not completed nearly enough games!!!
Ohh, oh I can’t take it! Why is everyone and everything so mean to me!!
Maybe this is karma for making up stories about dead musicians who can’t speak up for themselves anymore. How do you think that makes Prince’s family, friends and fans think knowing that you waited until he died before inventing that fucking horseshit about him beating you up, just to sell your fucking mediocre memoir – which you know next to nobody would otherwise be interested in as all you’ve ever been is “that Nothing Compares 2 U singer”.
It’s always all about me me me. Karma is a bitch. I suppose we’ll have to hear your rendition of a Prince song for a couple of months all over the news and the radio if you end up topping yourself. Following this, that’s all you’ll ever be remembered for – singing someone else’s song – that someone else being responsible for the only thing you will ever be remembered for – then you turning round and inventing stories that that person beat you up.
