This and just recently the DmC comment he made, have made me realize how flawed of a of a person he is. I mean yeah you never want to idolize someone because you're always going to be disappointed by the reality of it, but it sucks that his opinions are so....terrible.

I cant imagine it being worse than this unless he called everyone who liked it a slur or something

I'm conflicted and I feel bad saying that. I e-mailed him and did my absolute best to explain to him why some of the things he's said may have hurt people and while he apologized to me for offending anyone he insists to me that if I know the full context of the interview, I'll understand his true motivations and that he's for uniting people.

I dunno, I shouldn't give him the benefit of the doubt, I know that, too many people do. But I'm just not sure how to handle this situation because he seems to just not realize the gravity of his BLM and MeToo comments. I want to get through to him but I don't know how.

I will probably duck out of this conflict for now. I respect and encourage you all to press on but I don't think my hearts in the right place to reasonably engage in this at the moment.
At least you tried. Maybe others here can you help

It would be nice to keep all discussions of DmC vs DMC away from this thread. Especially since the topic at hand isn't something to laugh at.

It's fine to have preferences. But not every thread needs those versus contents.

I found out about the DmC interview before this one, where he talks about Itsuno going to quit Capcom, and that Itsuno was less then happy about DmC even though him, Inafune, and Capcom wanted the change in direction, which idk how Reuben got this info in the first place but Itsuno's stated multiple times he likes DmC. Take that as you will but Reuben just throwing that out there stoked fires that should've stayed dead.

He actually cleared up his comment regarding Itsuno and DmC:
Glad to see him clarify 4 days after the fact, its a shame media sites have already spun it as a DmC hate piece and most people have already moved on and won't bother. I do appreciate him clarifying that though. Though Reubens been making a lot of waves lately in the media, which I wonder how Capcom will take that.

Getting back, jeez didn’t know how much involvement Reuben had with mo-cap in certain projects!

Just hope this gets headlined more and more and maybe (hopefully) companies begin to distance themselves from Reuben.

this dude screams "dumbass regressive person" in a way that takes me back to the brief period of time when people called other people woke as a genuine compliment

like, after reading all this, I find myself appreciating my ###woke family and friends and fellow forum-goers who can maneuver around a conversation about sexual harassment without coming across like a complete fool

Reuben langdon believes in Q....jesus christ...you have to be a far right Trumpist to even have a inkling of that nonsense...our society is sick with a disease. And BLM and MeToo stuff...yeah that's pretty much a wrap for him

What did he say about DmC ?

Edit: just saw your earlier post ;)

People here clearly don't understand that people are not in charge of 8chan. It's a platform for free speech which started to become a really nice hangout place for racist etc. Don't compare NZ Mass shooting to a public figure having a harmless opinion.

8chan... The place that was founded from those banned from 4chan? Because they were too awful for even 4chan? That 8chan?

No, I think that people do understand how 8chan is operated and how being a "platform for free speech" has actually lead to it being a total flaming garbage fire in an overflowing rubbish pit where people can spew whatever hateful, vile nonsense they want, brigading and hate movements can congregate and plan, and people like the Christchurch shooter engage with and play to that scumbag audience.

The DmC quote is probably true. I don't think Itsuno likes being wheeled out to help fix products, it takes time away from him doing things he wants. He can like DmC but I don't think he liked being made to work on it after initial reaction to the game wasn't hot.

Reuben was already a bit nutty, he probably got a lump sum already so he got paid already.

The problem isn't so much that Itsuno liked or disliked being put on the project thats debatable. It's the fact that Reuben somehow "knew" the details of it, ran his mouth on an interview, and let everyone "take" out of context his comments about DmC, he already didn't like the fact that the game got made, but it took him 4 days to back track all that shit. Probably at Capcom's demand.

So, no words from Capcom or any new declaration by Langdon? This is blowing over like the THQ stuff?
I'm worried that it is, yeah... Capcom responded to both Newsweek and Eurogamer that his views doesn't reflect their own and the comment sent specifically to Eurogamer stated they were also looking into it, but nothing since. Hopefully they actually are working on this internally, and it wasn't just a PR reply to get them off their case.

It's so ridiculous that he says that people need to start forgiving, because no one should forgive a person who

1. Doesn't think they did anything wrong, or
2. Isn't asking for forgiveness or doing anything that suggests that they feel bad.

Forgiveness is a fancy way to say "stop complaining about white men"

jfc what a piece of shit. I wouldn't have bought the game had I known about this.
For what it’s worth he already made his money before you purchased your copy. Also, this isn’t like the Dragon Quest scenario where the only hope of detaching him from the series is his death. If people make enough of a stink I could see Capcom changing things up for DMC6 (it’s just a matter of people making a big enough stink really).

EDIT: I mean, Capcom hasn’t shown a ton of loyalty RE voice actors as they ditched beloved actors for the RE2 remake in favor of non-union actors. Now that the DMC series has been reestablished I’m sure Capcom would be fine with replacing him in future games.

Original NeoGAF and now ResetEra will always be hated by groups of people. And will always take the blame for another person's terrible thoughts and opinions coming to light.

Cause you know, we're apparently masterminds in a huge conspiracy lol
I love how much those who hate us are always up-to-date on us, which means they are reading ResetEra. Jealous, angry little fucks.

What are the odds that Langdon thinks Dante's passing of the torch is a conspiracy to get him removed from the series?

Capcom will still give his business money if they keep working for Just Cause.

It is going to be problem for anyone to give his business money.
Sean schemmel is by all reports a good guy, if that sort of thing matters for Smash
I suppose this was his way of warning people years ago.

???????? He liked my tweet?
God, let this roller coaster end.

You’re not wrong but it’s not like Just Cause Productions is the only company out there that does this kind of work. Capcom can change this.
Capcom aren't the only ones thought. Just Cause has to be really competitive for what they offer. Sony, Bandai Namco, Bethesda, EA, all work with them. They provide a large range of cinematic services for games and have offices in Japan and LA.

huh

maybe he's going for a "I respect your opinion. remember when we respected opinions?" kind of thing
Could be. I don't see any likes on my tweet now, though--maybe he accidentally hit the like button, or misunderstood that I was criticizing him.

Yeah dudes stop saying CP and say what it really is.
idk, I get why some people might not use the full word--Twitter, for instance, has character limits, and it's possible that the full word might trigger someone more than the abbreviation? but at the same time I get that people who just use the abbreviation might be doing it so others don't know what it means.

Lax moderation is the appeal of 8chan, even moreso than 4chan or Reddit where it's also part of the appeal. The post is unclear enough that he could be rooting for that.

Like, he's a Qanon conspiracy theory nutter. This is the sort of guy who thinks a random pizza place is part of a democrat child sex ring. It wouldn't be too off the mark for him to say 8chan's the one for life events and Facebook is actually secretly the conspiracy child porn website, except that the conspiracy is that jewish lizardmen don't rule the universe.

None of this stuff is that surprising. I remember posting concerns about his QAnon nonsense when Dante stuff was getting revealed.

And I expect nothing to happen here. The game is out and I sincerely doubt anything is going to change. By the time DMC6 is a thing, if it's ever a thing, most people won't remember this shit. Furthermore, if we got another sequel we may not really see or play Dante at all. Capcom has been good about addressing things thus far, but other than a statement about Langdon and that ass hat that voiced Morrison, I expect basically nothing.

Well, we'll be here to remind everyone in the future if a DMC6 involving Langdon happens.
