Good riddance to snek and his fellow guest. From what I heard about him, he regularly engages in low-level white supremacist dog whistling, and when confronted about it, he brings out charts about the amount of respect he has for Asian-Americans. Even without that, you have to wonder how he burned his bridges with IGN and Kinda Funny.
 
And I wonder how the hell do you get kicked off your own subreddit.


You are proving my point exactly when you said "from what I heard about him" You've never heard a word he said.

I've noticed that there's a weird anti-conservative bend in the industry these days.

 

Last year, I received PMs from 3 or 4 people telling me not to associate with (i.e., don't send review copies of my games to) this one indie game journalist.  Saying he had horrible views or something.  They linked me to tweets from the guy's personal Twitter account (which wasn't even associated with his review site).

 

The offenses committed in those tweets?  He expressed his support for the president/his policies, and he made a couple of jokes these people found offensive.  Edgy jokes for sure, but nothing worse than you can find in a Comedy Central stand-up act, so...

 

I'm not going to blacklist someone for their political views, or for making a raunchy joke, so yeah I didn't comply with their request.

I agree 100%. 99% of the people that talk poorly of Colin have never heard a word he has said. All they know is that they are "supposed" to hate him. It's a world of click bait headlines and that's all people read. It's especially true in the gaming press. People need to start thinking for themselves, and not take everything they read on Twitter as fact, it rarely is.

Colin is great. Best voice in the gaming industry. We need more content creators like him.

I'm with cheapy and wombat on BOTW. Give me an easy mode, I'm not too proud for that. I love Zelda and the world but there are so many other games to play without spending hours making little progress in Zelda.
