I want to talk to whoever was responsible for this poster. I want to discuss how many meetings and heated conversations were involved having a poster in which the protagonist's face is obscured and having ALL the text on the poster mirrored, including the studio logos. Bravo.

A lot of you probably find these security breaches funny or whatever. They're going to continue to escalate and more serious things will happen. You will lose access to gamedevs. You want to celebrate gamedevs? You respect gamedevs? take their safety and security seriously.

In October, Star Citizen will have been crowdfunding for a full decade. They are currently at $494,122,284.00 So if current trends continue, they are on track to hit a half BILLION dollars before they hit that 10 year mark. No launch date in sight.

It literally makes no sense to have disabled people in a fantasy setting: 1) Why can't the disabled person cast a spell on their broken legs that fixes them instantly so they can walk again? 2) If the mage's lower body is paralyzed rather than physically broken then why can't

last nights awards show was three and a half hours (210 minutes) long. interestingly if you include the pre-show, the total runtime of awards acceptance speeches (13 awards) is just under 12 minutes total. the speed-run portions (19 awards) add up to about 4.5 minutes total.

When I say 'you will lose access to gamedevs', you've already lost access to a bunch. A lot of gamedevs won't put themselves out there, won't step into the spotlight when given opportunities, won't go on stage, etc specifically for this reason. And its hard to argue with them.

@KarenMusings ugh it's pretty frustrating to hear people call on more POC to do things. POC are always doing things. The reason you don't see more of what they do isn't from lack of effort. Its from institutionalized barriers. Lack of desire/performance isn't the cause of low representation.
