I hear more N word is used in just about every PUBG, GTAV.

The SJW simply made it a big issue because they hate the way Felix command an audience that SJW journos desperately need.

Also, DMCA move was a dick move by Firewatch developer, who happens to be a big fan of Sarkeesian.

I think the lesson to learn here is that you can use the word in an adult conversation around here and it will not get you banned, unlike just about any other video game website on the planet.

Obviously, I would prefer people not throw it around casually because it can be offensive to a lot of people and I wouldn't want to alienate new readers, but I'm not going on a ban spree if someone drops a bad word now and then.

What is the word for when the answer to a question is contained in the question? Retorical.

It wont happen. He's too big. His fans will destroy whoever tries. They tried when he did the jew stuff, it had no effect.

People are still watching as he's, supposedly, an okay guy. He's clever, switched on to things and can be damn funny. Plus it's a choice to do so. But... he can mess up which is dramatically human of him. thankfully he's not killed any puppies or stolen a child.

Well, there's no doubts that afro-americans have made the N-word their own, changing the original meaning of the word, as propagated by slave-owners or whomever first started using it. Whites using it will make you question whether they're referring to the new form or the old for sure and PdP's tying it to being "an asshole" doesn't improve the issue in this case, but by now the term's so widespread in popular culture that imo it comes across as more of a modern culture derivative, than any heartfelt racial prejudice on his part. White people wish they had a fam-word strong as nigger. We don't.

An apology. No excuses. He's not tried to dodge, escape, or change what he said. Takes a realistic person to actually apologise. Life can now move on.

But it won't. The feeders will want more flesh.

If you wanna police words, you need a better avenue than copyright. Inb4 "but meh distribution rights!"
This, especially when the Firewatch Dev says, on their website, that streaming their games is encouraged (http://www.firewatchgame.com/about/#streaming)

Decampo double downed on this by saying that they were too complacent in allowing people to do whatever and say whatever they wanted to. As much as I hate PewDiePie, I do not want to see DMCA being used as a vehicle to censor speech or criticism. You either apply the DMCA universally to protect your brand, or you do not. Don't use DMCA when someone says something that you do not like, use the tools which are already provided such as reporting the video to YouTube, requesting that the video be edited or removed by the creator, asking people to not watch the video, etc.

I guess I just don't get why people who are annoying and produce way too much noise would want to spend all that time with others who do the same thing. Don't you eventually get tired? I mean sure, you might wanna do it to celebrate something or whatever, but why spend hours a day listening to a guy who's essentially running fingers across a chalkboard? Recognition only goes so far after all.

I've a cousin who watches the guy almost non-stop and who keeps sending me his videos and I just wish he wouldn't.

I think it's funny that Decampo chooses now to virtue signal. He didn't care about nazis and jews controversy but using the n-word... well that's his bridge too far!

Either that or Firewatch sales have been lagging and he needed a sales spike bad. Why not use this as a chance to get the name of his game back into the conversation to drum up some interest? Of course we know most SJWs who are bent out of shape over these things don't actually play games they just get offended on behalf of people they think should be offended.

Anyway, PdP did the right thing. He took responsibility publicly and with humility and, I believe, sincerity.

For some reason Pat and Ian were more upset about this that the previous things hes done, which imo were much worse. Ian was all torn up, cussing and shit. Why did they even bring this shit up? Because PDP pays games? Not really, not lately...

Im getting so sick of these video game e celebs and their views on things poltical. I guess there is really no one to listen to anymore. Retrogaming roundup is the only long running game podcast that is worth a dam that leans conservative/libertarian.

I don't think Pewdiepie hits politics much in his videos. I am not a regular watcher but he usually only does it when politics pushes its way forcibly into his face.
