Ion Fury to retain homophobic content after all

Yup. They could just call it "Obay" (as in "obey") for that 1984 feel, or "Obae" (i.e. "bae") for the anachronistic language use or something. Don't get me wrong: these puns are not especially funny, but they also literally took me 5 seconds to come up with as a non-native speaker, are not any dumber than "Ogay", and are completely devoid of any discriminatory undertone.
"Obay" is honestly pretty good, both as an anti-corporate/advertising (which works great with a female lead and potentially plays into her characterization) or like you said as anti-authoritarian.

If you want a fucking lame pun then just change it to `O-laid`. Still retains it's 'sex joke' and doesn't offend a particular group!
I dig this too.

I'm still confused about wheher they're changing the joke or not. They keep saying the bottle itself is still in the game, but also
while also defending the original joke, so which one is it?

I am sick and tired of racist dev's encouraging hatred and sexism! When will they learn jokes aren't OK no matter context?!
Definately won't buy this game (not like I ever wanted too lol).

It's "we're not bowing to SJWs" and at the same time "we're not bigots, honestly"

Not a particularly good combination to be honest.

This game looks ok. Might buy it if I’m bored this weekend.

I wholeheartedly agree with their latest stance on censorship too. It’s complete bullshit that fans think they can control content that other people are creating and do their best to have a bs image of the world that appeases to them presented to us.

If you don’t like something, don’t buy it. I would never buy something that presented people like myself in a negative light. I wouldn’t speak on it to give it attention either.

It's bullshit to ask a developer not to use homophobic "jokes" now?

Use your real account, coward.
Why would they stand behind such a lame and blatant insensitive joke?
Because of people like the above. Apparently they're more important than those hurt by bigotry.

Seriously. Whoever is in charge of Voidpoint's Twitter account hasn't a clue how to do PR or even communicate effectively at a basic level. That we're all still this confused on exactly what they are changing in Ion Fury, if anything, is illustrative of how inept this guy is.

This is my only account.

It’s bullshit to stifle creative ventures because you personally can’t handle it. That’s eeriely similar to the book 1984.

And if anyone gets mad at any comment I make here and wants to call me a coward or any other sort of name calling I live two minutes away from Outlaw Boxing Gym in Tarzana. Show me how much of a coward I am.

Thanks for coming in here to show your ass off to everyone. I would ask if you even read the disgusting studio commentary in the discord logs, but we both know why you're really here.

Enlighten me as to why I’m really here. I’m doing the same as you and everyone else: Sharing my opinion on the topic.
Nothing strange about a new account from yesterday with less with than ten posts pushing a freeze peach narrative (newsflash, this isn't even censorship) while feigning ignorance of all the other facts surrounding the situation. Enjoy your brief stay here, I will be reporting you.

What's frustrating is that the people who are making the choices here want to portray themselves as having some kind of dignity. But the only thing that's happening here is a company breaking under the pressure of a review bomb. They're cowards.

I forget the other forum still monitors this forum like a pervert hiding in trees, trying to find any sort of entertainment they can through their binoculars and hoping for responses and reactions like a YouTuber catering to 10 year Olds.

How old are you? Your best rhetoric is seriously "Fight me IRL"?
I’m 30. Like I said, where I’m from, if you call someone a coward and they call you out, you better show them that they’re cowards.

That’s why talking on the internet sucks, because the lot of you say things to people on here you wouldn’t even think of in their presence. Simply because noone can truly check you for saying something out of pocket.

Crazy thing is I didn’t even say anything disparaging about the LBGT at all.

Punching people. The true way of discerning the presence or absence of cowardice.

I’m very impressed.

People all willy nilly with the name calling until someone invites them to a friendly sparring match lmfao

You're actually in here threatening to assault others for disagreeing with you. You are a coward.
