    Iselin your argument is BS, two wrongs don't make a right and its that simple.  There's no good excuse to be hateful or racist period.



    The problem is there's a difference between hating based on race and skin color because you think it's inferior, and fearing based on instinctual mistrust. That's why the history is important to the context.

    Secondly who wouldn't be crapping their britches in cannibal country if a couple bush people came upon them? That's instinctual fear. By the same measure most would crap their pants if an armed group with tanks and red armbands came down their street. Again it's instinctual fear. There's a reason by example our subconscious goes into a state of fear and mistrust.


    SO islen is right IMO as one is hate/superiority based, the other is explainable fear, they are not the same measure of wrong.

    I'm Irish. My Great Grandfather was a slave. So yes you did miss it.
    Even so historical context means absolutely nothing. An insult intended to belittle or humiliate someone based on physical appearance or trait is fucked.
    Do enlighten me... did any of this happen to connect to earlier mentioned British Colonialism..? Because if so it is part of said "white people doing racism"... 

    And i already agreed that the above noted troll previously working for BW was in really poor taste. So at least we agree on that. 
    Although I agree that "poking whitey" as he did was in poor taste, it's not even in the same ballpark as the faux outrage from the "poked" that is nothing more than a pathetic attempt to put what a brown person said about whites on the same level as the institutionalized racism that those black and brown people have endured for centuries.

    It's nothing more than Orwellian doublespeak and racist itself at its core.
    Racism will never end if any form of it is acceptable and defended. Equality is zero tolerance. Your blanket and derogatory dismissal of peoples opinion based on their skin color is pretty fucked imo.
    All I'm dismissing is racially-motivated fake outrage whose only purpose is to minimize true institutionalized racism by portraying the racist comments of a brown person as being equivalent to the real racism he has experienced.

    It is nothing but a white supremacist tactic on the same level as beating the shit out of your little brother because he spit at you and then whining to your parents because you got punished and he didn't.
    The point I'm trying to get across is by that logic, that dude as a Indian cant be offended by a African calling him a currymuncher or some other bullshit because his ancestors were more oppressed than his. It's a vicious circle that will never end if we base it on historical events that no one alive today had any hand in.
    It is still a matter of degrees. All racism is not equal to all other racism. You can dislike an ethnic group all you want but until you gas a few million of them to death, you ain't as bad as the Nazis.
    Iselin your argument is BS, two wrongs don't make a right and its that simple.  There's no good excuse to be hateful or racist period.



    What's BS is saying that all wrongs are equal to each other. Punching someone is not the same as killing them which is essentially what your "racism is racism" leads to.

    Maybe you buy that bullshit but I see it for what it is which is just plain misdirection.

    The problems with the game don't strike me as an SJW Agenda. It feels much more like a new inexperienced team. Which is understandable. I suspect their next game will be orders of magnitude better in execution. My only advice in the mean time is for the writers to go take a few Physics and Chemistry courses - at least up to and including Classical Thermodynamics. A large majority of my issues with the writing stem from a misunderstanding of core science that themes their game.
    consideranting the lastest games was crappy too, you really consider they will have a new chance?

    I decided after me3 I would not buy any ME game, and after inquisition(like ME3 I had to finish the 3 games series) I will not pay for a new EA game for a long time, I could consider battlefield, but serious last one good enough was bf4 with was almost the same as bf3, then hardline(crap), star wars battlefront(don't like cod so why I would like this? because it have a star wars name?) then BF1 with is the same shit was the star wars one?

    if bioware/EA fire people and hire new people with the right supervision, don't matter is is just to say diversity or competence, if you make crap you will get crap, ME:A is crap worse graphics then the first one, same one with inquisition most part members was lacking, they game design can't keep up with the lore they made in the previous games, ME is a huge on this, in ME3 they forgot that little dark energy thing is little mentioned on the first, a lot on 2 then on the 3 meh I forgot(could be because the writer on the 3rd is not the same guy)


    so yeah I don't see any reason to even waste on bioware games, cherish teh oldies ones who was actually good, and save money, nothing says fuck you to a bussiness then taking you money to the ones who are working right

    I think that people like you and I who continuously read about games and keep a somewhat vested interested in development are in the minority - in regard to those who purchase EA's games.

    Ultimately, I doubt anything we determine about ME has much effect on its bottom line and subsequently its chances for sequels.

    I only really care whether they fix the bugs and polish the rough spots in a timely manner. I don't expect perfection. I expect dedication and improvement. EA and Bioware care about their Mass Effect IP. I can't really see them shrugging this off like they might with older forgotten titles (rip bejeweled twist).

    It's EA!  The only real thing you can count they're for sure working on, is upcoming DLC to get more money out of your wallets!

    The best way to ensure DLC sales is to show some measure of caring about the product you put out. They're only hurting themselves if they don't attempt to improve what people are complaining about. They know that as well as anyone...

    just take a look at their official forums. The amount of complaints about issues and game breaking bugs is insane.

    Not a single response from EA/Bioware. Even if it's to just ease people's minds to confirm they even working on a patch.
