With Revenge you don’t always get a Revenge of the Week, but those are the weeks where something like accidental pole vaulting off a building happens. Those are also the weeks where we get really confused about what happens when. Oh Lydia when will you stop getting re-revanched?

I know everybody says it’s good but who has the time!
Also like I barely know what it’s about. It seems weird. Don’t tell me. I need the mystery.
i haven’t heard of these people before now and i don’t know any of them personally (i actually spent a long time staring at the photo to make sure; they definitely would have run in similar nerd circles as i did some years ago). BUT the information in that post checks out, their website talks about how games are too politically correct these days, and i’ve met enough nazi nerds to believe it without question. is it really so implausible?
So it’s a bit different than Postal, which really feels like the eye roll-incuding extreme racist/sexism/offense-based humor we should’ve been done with by at least the end of the 90s but somehow still perseveres. Not to downplay the social damage Postal’s style of jerky, unPC humor can wreak, but it’s rooted in a difference source than what Hatred’s devs appear to support. I know Europe is having a really difficult time with extreme right wing anti-immigrant, anti-everything-different-than-me movements that always seem to gain hold in times of extreme economic strife. Though I feel Hatred will burn itself out, the root causes are definitely a concern, especially for vulnerable people living in those countries. Fuck No Videogames did a good job in summing this up descriptively, but without hyperbole.
It’s been funny/tragic to see a few people trying to foist this sentiment out there considering that, generally speaking, Ryan was one of the more socially liberal guys I’ve known. More than I am, that’s for sure.
It’s hard to tell if people genuinely believe this or if they just think they’re being hurtful by putting it out there. Either way? Nah.

This is the doublethink of jerks, I guess.
