Beamdog vs #GamerGate

Here is a textbook example of SJW entryists ruining an organization through convergence. In this case, I very much doubt the people running the organization even had any idea that their simple and straightforward objective - make an entertaining and enhanced expansion of Baldur's Gate  - and been subverted to serve the interests of the SJW Narrative.

But Amber Scott's little declaration of war on #GamerGate didn't escape GG's attention, as the reviews of Siege of Dragonspear on Steam and GOG and Metacritic show. Here are three examples from GOG:
just another vessel for SJW propaganda by installgentoo
Amber Scott, the writer of this game, says that the original Baldur's Gate is sexist. Captain Corwin, a major NPC, is a single bisexual mother whose daughter calls you out for mansplaining to her. There is a transgender NPC. Etc etcIf that's your sort of thing, then this review should be useless to you. But for people like me who don't want to financially or morally support the ever more omnipresent liberal lunacy injected in all forms of art, perhaps you should skip this.

Not in the spirit of Baldur's Gate by Valerie.377
 
While the mechanics of the game are in line with the originals, the story falls short. It sacrifices the narrative and world building of the original Baldur's Gate in order to break the 4th wall and beat players over the head with messages about social issues with the grace and subtlety of a Saturday morning cartoon from the 90's.


There is no problem with having messages about social issues in a game. The problem comes when one hijacks another franchise, gut out its soul and fill it with vapid maxims and fables in its place. That is one of the surest ways to kill off a franchise, and it is especially odious when it happens to a well-loved franchise.


Want social justice? Sure, but stop hijacking the industry and make your own games. You're not going to improve the industry, you're just going to kill it from the inside out.

Not Baldur's Gate. by Ajaarg
Even if you don't disagree with their political agenda, it's ham-fisted and very groanworthy. Minsc makes jokes about Gamergate. If that's what you want out of your baldur's gate game, go right ahead. If you would like to keep baldur's gate in your baldur's gate, just keep playing the originals and don't waste time on this toilet retread.Side note: Beamdog is locking down any and all criticism on any forum they control or moderate, including Steam.

The ability of devs to keep quiet and remain neutral is rapidly vanishing. This is not due to the gamers, but due to the SJWs in their own organizations who will not permit ANYONE to refuse submission to their sacred Narrative. And if you're foolish enough to permit SJWs to penetrate your organization, this is exactly the sort of thing you have to look forward to - your involuntary enlistment in their cultural war.

And the SJWs are just going to LOVE how you can gain experience by killing a trans character after he bores you, appropos of nothing, with a tedious tale of discovering his true self. I'll be shocked if Literally Wu doesn't find a way to insist it's actually a LITERAL attempt on his life by #GamerGate and "flee his home" again. 

UPDATE: The Beamdog CEO doubles down on Techraptor:
I find the controversy ridiculous.  Yes, we have a transgendered character.  I know a number of transgendered people and they are genuine, wonderful humans.  Yes, we also have a character who cracks a joke about ethics.  The original Baldur’s Gate had a whole sequence about the Bob Newhart show.  If this generates controversy it makes a sad statement about the world we live in.

As for my post on the forums, I merely asked people who were enjoying the game to share their positive feedback. I know our fans can become engrossed in their enjoyment and I really don’t want potential fans to miss out on the series because of protest reviews by small minded individuals.
    
As for Amber’s interview, I also believe in strong female characters and I feel she did an excellent job bringing dimension and interest to Safana with her writing in Siege of Dragonspear. Her “Too bad” comment, I chalk up to a long day of interviews, having personally done such interviews.

I guess we know where the SJW rot set in, then. Too bad. Notice how despite their talk of "choices", you can't express any disapproval of Mizhena blathering about "the truest reflection of who I am". There is no 4: Who asked you, you self-absorbed freak?

And if you're foolish enough to permit SJWs to penetrate your organization, this is exactly the sort of thing you have to look forward to - your involuntary enlistment in their cultural war.

Here is the big question. How do you keep the SJWs out when you are no longer able to police the organization yourself?

I am certain that it CAN be done. But the question is how?

Classic example of somebody who actually did beat the SJWs in his day but then they eventually over ran his company;

Walt Disney purged the Communists at his studio so thoroughly that they couldn't regain a foothold there for decades. He specifically weeded them out and kept them out. He was the only studio boss who managed that. The rest of the Moguls were giving the Hollywood Ten work under the table before the ink was dry on the Blacklist. But not Walt.

Walt Disney was a noted conservative all of his life. His brand wasn't just family friendly. There was an attempt in all of his works to say 'this is what my vision of America is.' There were morals and values on display in all of his animated shorts as well as in his feature films. This was what had made him a target of Hollywood Communists in the first place. They nearly destroyed his studio during the 1941 strike.

Two things saved him at that time. First America went to war and needed propaganda films, so Walt got a big War Department contract to tide him over. Second because of the first, Walt was able to go through the Communist infiltrators at his studio with a gutting knife. He ruthlessly saved Disney Studios by chopping down his head count from 1,200 to a little over 700


Yet today Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm is fully SJW convergent. This week Bob Iger, successfully chickenwinged the Republican governor of Georgia into going full Cuckservative and vetoing legislation that would have protected bakers that didn't want to bake Gay Wedding Cakes.

The enhanced editions haven't been messed with SJW-wise. I'd recommend playing Baldur's Gate with the original engine, though, as the changes they made do affect the gameplay. Icewind Dale Enhanced, though, is probably superior than the original.

The beamdog CEO has issued a call to arms to write reviews to counteract the "loud minority" who don't want politics crammed down their throat when buttkicking for goodness in a campy game:

"Did you ever hear, Wimpole, of the great destiny of the Empire?"

"I seem to have heard the phrase," replied his companion.

"It is in four acts," said Dalroy. "Victory over barbarians. Employment of barbarians. Alliance with barbarians. Conquest by barbarians. That is the great destiny of Empire."

Anonymous Leoxiii April 03, 2016 11:59 PM  

Another thing to remember is Beamdog is doing all this in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast, who are extensively pushing the SJW agenda in both D&D and Magic the Gathering (which is among, if not the, largest revenue producing paper games on the planet.)

Serious harm is being done through the D&D and MtG media, and we're not even allowed to talk about it outside places like this blog. WoTC bears watching for those who are concerned about these battles.

The latest MTG set has stuff like female lumberjacks and well over 50% of all sword-fighting and other combative cards depict women. They are pushing hard the idea that women can work these roles as well as men, which is anti-reality. And once you step away from reality, civilization falls apart.

But to even ask the simple question "Are we sure women can contribute to the operation of a logging camp or swing a sword in combat as well as men" is to subject yourself to the charge of sexism.

This doesn't even touch on the fact that they are gearing up for some of their major characters to be revealed as bi or gay to more fully push this agenda on the malleable minds of their players. Some of their top people run Tumblr blogs where they lay all this out as if it's a good thing.

The writing was on the wall when Wizards of the Coast bought the rights to the fantastically excellent game, Cosmic Encounter, which had been developed perfectly by Mayfair, and in one fell swoop, hammered it into the mere "trivial game with potential" that it was under its very first publisher.

Blogger Doc Rampage April 04, 2016 12:51 AM  

I'm thinking of a mod for Baldur's gate that has these same new characters, but you play a Muslim holy warrior who gets rewards for killing GLBTs and women who don't know the place Allah intended for them. It's called "Jihad's Gate".

When you kill one, you get a message: "Allah rewards you for your faithfulness."

To make it more challenging, they should run away screaming and when you chase them, your character says things like "Infidel Witch!" or "If you reject the sex that Allah gave you, then you reject the life that Allah gave you!"

This game could make some heads explode. What are they going to do, hate on a Muslim character for behaving according to his religion?

It's the only rhetorical response to such a phenomenally dumb comment.

I've always thought Disney was lousy since its beginnings ("Snow White", "Pinocchio", "Fantasia", etc. were all garbage) and them becoming SJW converged at the same time as every other major company and organization in the US did is hardly surprising.

That their executives have Jewish surnames is about as relevant as whether they wore boxer or briefs, considering most other major SJW converged companies had non-Jewish, and indeed mostly American white leadership.

For edification purposes, while roughly 70% of American Jews are leftists first and foremost, the situation is the exact opposite in Israel, where Trump would win by a landslide if the elections were held there;

Hell no! Israelis would never elect a Christian as President or PM of Israel.

But we both know that.

What you are really saying is that if Jews in Israel could select the man to rule over Americans, they would pick Donald as their preferred ruler.

Yes, Israeli Jews perceive Trump's right-wing nationalism as being in their best interests. Additionally, if you actually read the link above, you would see very few Israeli Jews consider themselves leftist, while many are right-wingers.

On a side-note, if Trump was running against Jewish Bernie Sanders for the PM spot of Israel, it would be a bigger landslide than any election in US history.

Hell, given the people's anger towards Netanyahu (you can think of him as the Israeli GW Bush), the electorate might even roll the dice with Trump in the same way many Americans would try Putin over Obama.

No one cares anymore. All that matters at this point is that they're disproportionately represented among the people who are financially raping the country and actively pushing the demographic destruction of the West.

Is that fair to those Jews who aren't involved in any of that sort of thing and aren't responsible for it? Of course not. Is the eventual outcome absolutely and utterly predictable to anyone who knows history? Of course. One basic rule of history is that if the minority will not police its own, the majority will eventually take care of the problem. And usually in a highly unpleasant manner.

It is extremely heartening to be seeing this kind of blowback. The opportunities for turning this into an interesting little side quest that would actually help sell the game rather than hinder, absolutely abound. In a world of shape-shifting otherdimensional demons, sad lowly polymorph, and bigby's crushing hand, we get utter schlock and shameful tokenism. How about writing us fans of 20 years a fantastic fucking adventure on all levels and watch the money rain from the sky?

You arrive to an inn and watch the hottest bard in faerun enrapture all eyes, every dwarf spellbound and dribbling ale. You awake with the performance on your lips to a, gasp, man in your room imploring you to find the amulet of embiggening so he can be who he was born to be. You clear out the evil demon of gender enforcing, with the option of letting it live. You then have the choice of returning the amulet and marching in the parade or keeping it for +3 charisma. Get fucked tosser, i'll be the one embiggeling from here, thank you. You later find you have the option of telling the mayor about his girlfriend, or not and get your popcorn out or you can hear how amazing and progressive you are and here's an extra 5000 xp for being so great and awesome. It begs to write itself and any one of a million more desirable options turns the inevitable controversy into one of an inquisitive nature that sells games and creates history in the medium.

Talk about riding coat-tails, one of if not the most beloved computer gaming franchises of all time left in the hands of a disgusting butch lesbian who doesn't even take pride in the craft. An utter disgrace and with the ceo now with piss dribbling down his legs. To think i was cautiously optimistic about their efforts to reach the creation of baldur's gate 3 fills me with visceral revulsion.

Why aren't they living in Israel? Why are they still in America? They have a homeland. Otherwise why call themselves Jews?

Let me spell it out for you. If he has a house in the next town over but insists on living in yours and telling you how you should live your life you will eventually get sick of his shit.

As for the white quislings, that guy has a house next door but spends way too much time telling you how to live just like the jew.

America is getting sick of their shit. If you can't figure out what comes next then you're too stupid to be commenting on this blog.

While its undeniable there are SJWs with Jewish surnames, many of them are not Jewish as their ancestors married out long since. Though some such as Soros are nominally Jewish he was a Nazi collaborator and has never ceased to be absolute scum.

While you do have legitimate complaints about Jewish leftists, the American government and various EU nations are major funders of the far left particularly the cultural marxists working to destroy Israel from within. Whether or not it changes your opinion the Left; Jewish and non hates the Jewish state.

Also American & European non-Jews regularly travel to Israel with the express purpose of undermining Jewish sovereignty while giving aid and comfort to our enemies. Do Jews who are not American citizens do the same?

As for Trump, if Jews are supporting him because they think it will be good for the Jews they are just being rational. Every group should support whomever they think will further their interests. A strong America with its traditional European majority was always kind to the Jews, of course we would want that to continue.

Nobody cares. Nobody's listening any more. You'll very rarely find me ranting about "the Jews" or using parenthesis, or going on about "the Tribe," but I will say that your collective compulsion to lecture everybody else about your tribe is tiresome beyond measure.

Shut the fuck up. Either do something about the people giving your tribe a bad name, or don't, but trying to dodge responsibility by lecturing everyone else on why they shouldn't mind is not going to end well for you.

The faux-Victorian sentence structure is forgivable, but that run on sentence in the dialogue is a deal breaker. I wouldn't trust a C programer who didn't know how to use a semicolon, so why would I trust a game writer who doesn't?

Anyhow, another thread discussion successfully diverted. I'm very seriously thinking of banning all references to Jews from any post not marked Zion. I have no more patience for the MY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MENTIONED I MUST RUSH TO THEIR DEFENSE AT ONCE than I do for the ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS ARE CAUSED BY THE EVIL JEWS WHO RULE THE WORLD.

So fucking tedious. It's like TASTES GREAT vs LESS FILLING, only less intelligent and less interesting.

On how to harden your organisation against SJWs:
Make it explicit. Make it part of your corporate identity. We are here to do job X anything that takes away from that will get your ass fired in a flash. We especially don't care about SJW bullshit.
Not all companies will do this and the huge ones will be last but the smaller to medium sized ones can do it and they can eat the big firms lunch in the doing of it.
Meritocracy above all.

Back on topic, when is the next Game Dev class? We clearly need more people who love these older games creating their spiritual successor franchises.

"Yes, we have a character who cracks a joke about ethics."

Oh, so GamerGate is now about ethics for them, is it? Nice to see they've finally got the memo.

@32 reminds me of a song... How does it go...?
"I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay"

They did away with strength caps for female PCs at least two editions ago, so you're about 15 years too late to protest that.

Reluctantly, I've asked for a refund on DragonSpear from GOG.com. I hadn't played the game yet, and I have no doubt I would have enjoyed it despite its flaws. I love the Infinity Engine games and especially the BG series.

On the one hand, I feel as if I'm cutting off my nose to spite my face. On the other...

To hell with all SJWs. Break their toys. Damn them for ruining something I loved with their self-righteousness. I sincerely hope Beamdog goes under if they double down - which apparently they are.

I suggest a read of the review "Trannys Gate: The Siege of Bumdong"

Well after buying the other enhanced editions (and then having them fail while in mulitplayer) I am disappointed but not surprised.

Will not repeat my mistake and buy BG 1.5

Serious harm is being done through the D&D and MtG media, and we're not even allowed to talk about it outside places like this blog. WoTC bears watching for those who are concerned about these battles.

Blame Hasbro. They own the old TSR materials and the Wizards of the Coast catalog, and they are a company desperately trying to stay relevant.

"Strength (female max) = 18/50" was last seen in Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, Edition 1. The natural differences between men and women never made it past Unearthed Arcana (version 1.5) and Dragon Magazine of the day. That train left the station earlier in the 4th Quarter of the 20th Century.

Agreed, but it does illustrate the asymmetrical thinking behind most groupists rather well - it's only legitimate to speak of my group when you are praising it.

Doesn't matter whether it's Jews, Blacks, SJWs or Boomers, it's always the same. "We're so fucking awesome! But don't blame me for what those losers did..."

Yes, focus on the deed, not the creed.

Was saying to Dad recently that our faith means we have to be the bomb squad for the golems on occasion, and this (and GG) is one such occasion. If you bring the dog in from the rain and he sprinklers the living room, whose fault is that now?
