Ummmm... Is it bad that I’ve never heard of this game or the person in question?

I envy you.

Well I can somewhat understand people glossing over the events because it was one point in a long string of riot-related news.  But as you can already see in this thread it's something that became fiercely political.  Personally, I read about it but then just found myself agreeing with neither "side" that was trying to point fingers and spin things for self-benefit.

I don't even know anything about the game.  I'll just say that when people tragically die, I'm not interested in buying a game that tries to channel such events into an entertainment commodity.  1-2 years later, mind you - not talking WWII games here.

I've never heard of the game, but I've definitely heard of the person. Did you not read the news for like years?

I look forward to them playing the "We were unaware" card even though it would require living under a rock for the last two years to not realize what this game it about.

EDIT: Already pulled, incoming "apology" on the way.

Seems like a fair take. As for the rioting... I'm afraid I stopped paying attention to the news concerning that pretty quickly. I have a weak stomach for politicized news, since politicizing typically seems to mean little more than vilifying anybody who doesn't agree with some heavily promoted, and often heavily oversimplified, point of view.

As I mentioned above, kinda. Large chunks of it, anyway. I will say there's a decent chance I'd heard about him when the news was fresh and just didn't keep up with it afterwards, and so forgot. I also was barely keeping up with any US news at all during 2018 or 2020, since I spent most of both of those years out of the country.

Don't read the news.  Too depressing.  All you need to do is monitor the images from the Webb telescope which show there are about 200 billion galaxies in the known universe each containing about two hundred billion star systems.  All of this stuff happening on Earth is so insignificant in the grand cosmic scheme of things so your best bet is to play games and have fun.

 

Imagine millions of light years away the probability is very high that there is an entirely other sentient species discussing their form of video game deals as I type this out.

I'd prefer to think they're talking about pizza... and I guess +1s.

Fanatical apologized and took the game out of the bundle. They are also based overseas so most/all of them probably don't even know the story or who that person even is. You guys should chill lol, the world doesn't revolve around the USA's business

Two great deals; that first bundle would have been a nice grab if I didn't have seven of the nine titles...

When there's a game in a bundle I don't like, I just don't play it. I don't get "offended" by it. I'd give them the benefit of the doubt they didn't know, but they had to pretend to be sorry because otherwise you have to listen to people whine on Reddit. I'm sure they'd just as soon not get involved in taking a political stance because including the game and then removing it both alienated some people.

Killer Bundle 23

Now with actual killers.

Yep, you too can now give money to the Kyle Rittenhouse game "Acquitted."

Fuck you, Fanatical. And Nomad Survival is worth $3 alone.

What's wrong with that?

 

Real fine line we walk these days where we think being against fascists is pearl clutching.  If you live in the USA, you may yet soon see a day where you had wished to clutch a few more.

Kowtowing to this bullpoopie really needs to stop.

Real stretch to claim a boring meme game supports Fascism, but you do you.

Look, its someone with only 57 posts and last posted about 5 months ago with a real hot take.  I wonder what they could be after?

Remember, kids, don't feed the trolls.

Awesome. That got me over the hump here to buy this now.

 

Have most of this already (TWD: Bridge was actually on Epic as a freebie; bought RG: Outlaw a while ago from Epic) - but was missing FAR, Morbid, and Wayward Souls. So, I grabbed those 3.

Thanks, it applies to a few other bundles as well so I bought the ones I was hesitating on. I doubt it's intended to work on anything other than full priced games, so if there's anything you want I'd grab it now
