I believe Valve's commented on the paid mods fiasco a little since then and it doesn't really seem like they learned anything from it.

At least the community response was so severe that they're probably not going to try that poo poo again. Maybe. gently caress, with the way Valve's going I wouldn't even be surprised if they did it anyway.

To get even further down that rabbit hole I think it was only males who couldn't be Bi, for reasons?? Oh and also women were never EVER straight

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/20...-code-analysis/

quote:

There are no straight women in RimWorld, as in, there are no women only attracted to men. Instead, every single non-gay woman in the game has some chance of being attracted to another woman. As for the men, it works a little differently.

quote:

Notice that there’s only two possible orientations for men, gay or straight. In RimWorld, there are no bisexual men, only gay or straight men; there are no straight women, only gay or bisexual women.

quote:

In summary:

Men are about eight times as likely as women to try and start a romance.
Pawns with disabilities will always be found less attractive.
Beautiful pawns are always considered vastly more attractive; ugly pawns, vastly less. Physical beauty is the only trait that governs attractiveness, aside from sexual orientation.
Straight men always find men unattractive. Gay men always find women unattractive. There are no bisexual men.
Women may find women attractive. Gay women always find men unattractive. There are only bisexual or gay women.
All men consider partners aged 20 to their own age most attractive. If they’re under 20, they’ll find pawns 20 or over most attractive, with no regard for pawns that are a similar age to them.
All women consider partners the same age and older most attractive. Partners slightly younger than themselves are very unattractive, and partners that are 10 years younger than them are always considered unattractive.
All men consider any pawn 15 years older than themselves to be unattractive.
There is no “old age” cutoff for women. No matter how much older a partner is, women have some chance of finding them attractive.

The game dev then ranted about how this article is a 'hit piece' and how all the assumptions in his code are 100% true because of

And personal observations: I've known some bi women and a large proportion of the nominally straight women I've known have discussed bi impulses or experiences they've had. In contrast, every bi man I've ever known has ultimately ended up identifying as gay. These patterns seem to apply even in very gay-friendly social contexts.
Of course I'm sure bi/bi-curious men exist, but the research and what I've seen supports the conclusion that they're rarer than bi women. Conversely, gay women seem to be rarer than gay men.

As a Bi man, this is pretty lovely!

It's not hard to make a gun that just infinitely spawns more guns until the game crashes. I think it's far more creative and interesting to make poo poo like that gun that fires shotgun shells in a shotgun blast, which is actually viable as a weapon.

that is because that background was submitted by a backer. the game chooses pawns a little oddly. there's a very high chance of a certain number of backer pawns showing up in any particular game, and the game coin flips on whether or not any new pawn will be male or female. if it determines it's time for a backer pawn to show up, and the coin flip comes up female, there's a grand total of like 8 or 9 female backer pawns to choose from, vs multiple dozens of male pawns (because, unsurprisingly, most of the whale backers of rimworld are weird shut in dudes). one of those female pawns is that sex slave pawn.

the other thing you'll see showing up weirdly often if you look are computer programmer or other nerd backgrounds on male pawns that for whatever reason have almost no penalties or restrictions. because, unsurprisingly, those weird shut in dudes that made those backgrounds wanted to be demigods in their video games.

Over in Trad Games land, some rear end in a top hat made a stink after the developers for Blue Rose rewrote his he-man homophobe ranger NPC and his pet hawk 'Trigger Warning' into something that wasn't obviously trying to take a huge poo poo in their game. Nothing came of it.


Didn't Tides ship with a backer-written tombstone describing someone committing suicide after drunkenly sleeping with a cross-dresser? Or am I thinking of Pillars?

It's not hard to hand a stack of contributions to an intern, or go through them a handful at a time during a break, but if the person doing the vetting thinks that old memes or crass jokes are still funny and worthy of inclusion, then you're back to square one.

Deep down, I can understand why Half-Life 3 never materialized. Catch lightning in a bottle again with even higher expectations when there're easier and profitable routes available? I'd shy away from that as well. I'll never understand why Episode 3 died on the vine, though. They had an outline, concept art, they could've brought the story to an end of sorts, and they just canned it quietly.

Episode 3 is supposed to be HL3/the end of the series. One last relatively short episode to wrap things up. It's not like it would be difficult for Valve to make the drat thing.

The idea with Huey is that, as awful as Miller and Snake have become, he's much worse in his own particular flavor of awful. Specifically, self-delusion. Huey manages to legitimately convince himself he's a good guy and bad poo poo just keeps happening to him, but pretty much everything Snake, Ocelot, and Miller accuse him of, he absolutely did really do. He's just so profoundly hosed up in the head that he honestly convinces himself that it was all a terrible coincidence. The man has an enormous amount of blood on his hands. and of people he actively betrayed no less... he's just very, very convincing when he protests otherwise, since he truly believes it himself.

But yeah, there was a lot to dislike about MGS5 and the very unsympathetic protagonists was definitely a big part. That was the point, narratively speaking.... the entire game is about the characters more or less becoming outright villains from too much time looking into the abyss. But yeah, just because it was the point didn't make it much more fun to side with them.

EDIT: Granted, all of this is second hand understanding on my part. I've seen a lot of MGS5 here and there since it's been released but I admit I've never actually played it myself. Ground Zeroes turned me off too much.
