I mean once you start rioting, it stops being peaceful.
Calling BLM an entirely peaceful movement is the most asinine thing I'll hear this week. There's always going to be some group of fags who want to use it as an excuse to be violent, terrorist shitheads.

Based Ubi though. They shoulda stuck to their guns.

They've fired allot of the SJW bedbugs at the top that were causing the shift in shitty gameplay. It's not been a full purge but it's a start.


Not buying AC:VikingMod on launch, I'll wait for a discount though.

I'm interested in Watch Dogs Legion, from the get go. Something I never would've said about Ubi after first experiencing their games a few years back. Not even on the politics front, in general, they've improved. I wouldn't have called that then.

Don't think this is intentional. Just look at Watch Dogs 3.

I predicted that we wouldn't see a full reversal of SJW shit until 2023. The reason being that they went all in on woke nonsense, and have seen that it doesn't sell, but games take a long time to make so it's going to take a while the already infected games released and the dev teams purged.

Looking at the recent based games, a Call of Duty game, which are constantly churning and take a few years each with studios leak frogging each other, and a mobile game I'm guessing was made fairly quick.

AAA have abandoned the left. It's just going to take a while for the disease to leave the body, so to speak.

Watchdogs 3 will come out, and it'll be as unironically woke as Watchdogs 2. Watchdogs 4 could already be in development, but assuming it's not, I fully expect it to be less woke, and have a look more in line with the original.

What I didn't expect of these AAA companies is how far they've gone in the other direction. I'd have guessed they'd go back to Russians and aliens as bad guys, but no. They're featuring commies as villains. It would be great if middle class 20 somethings communists in black hoods became the default villain of the 2020s.

Historically, the raised fist is an intentional symbol of violent revolution. BLM has no idea what their symbology infers, but whine when people criticize it.

You can be illiterate, you can be a pussy, but nothing's worse than an illiterate pussy.
It also refers to the black power salute.

While I'd love to see Ubisoft (or anyone for that matter) take a stab at BLM and point out their bullshit, I'd rather not unless it's a clever and well-thought out critique piece that's intelligently done.

I'm tired of seeing politic's being shamelessly pushed in video games and other forms of media, and that included politic's I agree with. If any form of media is going to do a take down of BLM, or any other kind of political view or event, I'd like it to be done in an unbiased way that lays out all the facts without really taking a side and lets the person draw their own conclusion.

How was Watch Dogs 2 woke? Yeah, you played as dopey hipsters in San Fransico, but apart from the setting, the game had none of those themes at all, or any agenda to speak of. I never would've enjoyed it to the level I did with that shit, despite how impressive it was from a game design aspect.

Y'know, it's gonna be funnier than fuck when BLM gets tagged as the black version of Antifa and half the country will have to spit out that big black dick and act shocked (shocked, I say) that they were simping for a terrorist organization.

Black protagonist. San Francisco. Millennials using the Internet to fight against the Man. That's all I got.

Never mind that it greatly improved from the first game with combat, traversal and freedom. Story and tone, eh you can say it conflicted with the gameplay loop.

Setting/characters do not woke a game make.

True, but it was enough for me to pass on it.

It's not woke politics, but it's woke everything else. When I saw the burning man level, that was pretty much cemented by opinion that it would be too cringy to play.

If I did play it, I'd go full lethal just to maximise the irony.

Too bad they took the money of pan-faced communist bandits. The same ones that messed with the Senrans at that.
Then again, Ubisoft is works out of Earth's degenerate, Jew-infested, alcohol-fueled windsock known as France.

The only way to get my good graces would be for Ubisoft to get into the cheese business (that's the only actually good french thing, aside from using their national bread for pizzas).

That came much later and was one of many uses before and after that. BLM needs to be called out for cultural appropriation ya'll

In the context of BOPE and Brazil/South America I would imagine that the symbol is intended to be an amalgam of the many militant communist or socialist groups that have been around. The plot could be that they're doing a Castro/Guevara style uprising and they're starting in/with the favelas and they're of course supported financially by the drug trade.

Ubi may have sadly bent the knee, but they were right. Lefty reactions just prove the point of BLM being an agenda, not some revolutionary cause.

Also, 2 more things:

1: Soviet Union is the one who made the fist as their logo first.

2: Ubi is an giving The Division for free on UPlay. https://free.ubisoft.com/

Just because someone has a Black Protag doesn't mean the game is woke. Nor does millennials fighting the government (that's normal anarchy).

Wokeness comes from shit like TLoU2, YIIK, etc.

It wasn't woke but it was cringe. The politician with the Trump imagery, the old tranny, the diverse group of hackers who looked like they spent their entire time at Hot Topic and taking selfies, the game being about getting likes on Instagram, etc.

Oh, I've literally only played one story mission so far. It's fun to just go find and explore past that.

But still, that's character and setting consistent. I might not agree, but I'm okay with it. Woke bullshit I hate is when it's obviously coming from outside the game, to talk down to the audience, and when the story is just an excuse for it, all that.

I didn't get that with WD2.

since there isn't a general ubisoft thread and I don't want to necro the more relevant thread over at https://kiwifarms.net/threads/ubiso...al-social-justice-based-company-culture.48465

making this video even more hilarious, I'll just leave it here:

they also didn't show it during the stream itself and only put it on youtube "out of time constraints". considering it was a pre-recorded video it sounds as retarded as it is.

also, from the the last direct forward:
- strong womyn breath of the wild: fortnite edition
- prince of persia remaster (apparently unchanged so a toxic cis white male as persian prince with a problematic damsel in distress relationship)
- more zoomerhyperscape getting shilled via streamers
- poor sam fisher getting whored out in siege, complete with animu-inspired intro
- poor aidan pierce getting whored out in wd3, which tried to tone done the BLM/ANTIFA aspect even harder after their whole MUH BREXIT aspect fucked them in the ass. people getting more and more fed up with those groups makes this game even more of a shitshow
- new title "riders republic" aka steep: no more snow edition but way more extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeme which looks like zoomer jet set radio.

the only interesting thing was the scott pilgrim re-release.

- teasing "more than 5 minutes of content" in a thread complaining about dead silence for the last 2 months
- just showing the trailer ( duration: 2:38 ) and not even during the main show
- even tho next big dlc is released next week
