Discord shut down at least eight far right serversDiscord shut down at least eight far right servers

That does not make sense to me. Since both have Nazis, then that allows the usage of tags to say it involved in Wolfenstein? Also, I can get Discord is wildly used in pc gaming, but it is not used exclusively for that.

I just assumed it was tagged under that because it was the closest thing they could get to 'relevant tag'.

(speaking as someone who once published articles on sites before myself)

After Parkland shooting, a US lawmaker proposes a tax on violent gamesAfter Parkland shooting, a US lawmaker proposes a tax on violent games

It. Isn't. THE GAMES. That are. The problem.
Anything to deflect from the real issues.

And giving that money to fund mental health stuff in schools, while admirable, is just something they can use to smack detractors over the head with...
"They're against helping our CHILDREN! Won't someone think of the CHILDREN!"

They certainly don't. -.-

That's both hilarious and adorable. Good luck to the guy, seems to be a lovely one given that he immediately picked her up to cuddle her so she doesn't get confused and think she did something bad. ^^;

I will say that I'd never heard the song until Fallout 4 used it in their adverts and game.
I've never associated it with a guy that "roams from one location to the next, armed and hunting for victims to slaughter. " Hell, if he had played the game at all he'd have seen that far from going looking for trouble, most of the time the trouble comes to you! And you gotta fight back, because the opponents certainly won't stop.

I really enjoy the song too. It's my favourite from the game.Reply

Unless you listened to specifically "Oldies" radio stations you would never have heard the song. It's older than what is generally considered "Classic Rock".


This isn't some obscure indie guy though. It's an old hippie from a whole other era - huge in the US prior to The Beatles / British invasion. He's old enough to have grown up during what the franchise used as the idyllic base for their "Pre-War" fiction. Any expectation that this really old guy would somehow be on top of a single franchise in this generation's pop culture is kind of ridiculous.


If anything I'd say the fault is with Universal where they're the ones who apparently have control on the use of the song they should also be responsible for ensuring the artist's approval upon application but prior to actual marketing usage. Then again Universal is probably loving the free press for a legacy artist that most people had probably forgotten was still alive (he's 77).

I always played Skyrim as a Khajiit. I love the fact that when in danger I snarl and the fact that I love using Beast Form just makes it extra hilarious (I am a cat that becomes a dog).
I can't imagine playing a role-playing game as a human, elf, dwarf or ANY of the typically included races. That's not interesting to me, I love to pick the different and the new. :D
