???????? He liked my tweet?
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.

The number of people that popped up in my mentions to try and argue that Facebook is the conspiracy theory/child porn/terrorist act website was disheartening to say the least. The logical disingenuity of them refusing to acknowledge that "known for" isn't the same as "primary use" was astounding.

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.



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.
Those are all good points when looking at the situation. Guess it just annoys me because when i wrote my post I was thinking Reuben might not have known what the CP part meant and it introduced the possibility of him liking that member’s tweet without fully understanding it and leaving some doubt.
 
Langdon has no regrets for what he said; is featured in a new Capcom title.

Bumping this because it just came to my knowledge that Langdon returned to the same livestream about a month after the initial one, on April 30th. At the very start of the livestream they address the events that occurred following the last one, with Langdon making it clear that they're not going to talk about any of those topics this time, before stating that he doesn't regret anything he said. So yeah, over a month to reflect and he is sticking by his bullshit. No real surprise there, I guess.

I don't know if they actually do end up sliding into any of those topics again despite saying they won't as I can't push myself to watch past the 2 minute mark as they go right into alien conspiracy discussions. Like last time, I won't link to the video so as not to spread their content, but the channel is Toy Bounty Hunters. Make sure your adblocker is on if you do go watch, and either watch in incognito or remove the video from your youtube watch history so you don't fuck your recommendations up.

Beyond that, Capcom recently released Teppen, a Capcom card game featuring Langdon returning as Dante. Chances are the voice work on this project was already done by the time Langdon outed himself as a piece of crap, but it isn't a good look that Capcom hasn't said anything since their last statement of "looking into it."

This reminds me the discussions I have with my mother. "You must listen to me, because all opinions must be heard. Even if you don't like them."

Yeah, well... I don't want to hear your homophobic or misogynist opinion or conspiracy bullshit. You should be ashamed of yourself for even thinking that.
First ask what the first amendment actually said.

Then see how these bastards respond when you bringing up GamerGate's attempted silencing of female critics or the alt Reich trying to take down dissident YouTube channels.

Complete hypocrisy. The only free speech they want is their own.

It sure is going to be weird hearing a new Dante in DMC6, but hey it's the only choice at this point.

Bring it on, new Dante. Whoever you are!
 
Langdon thinks there is a conspiracy against him.

Oh hey, along with being shot at this is all part of some grand conspiracy!



Also, this is going to break some peoples hearts but... The Sphere Hunter is with Langdon on this.


She also had him in a video of hers in April.

Googled #WWG1WGA . It's apparently a QAnon thing? He ends his posts with that, and it stands for "where we go one we go all".

Atleast im glad DMC1 is not tainted for me since Dante VO was another dude in that one.

Anyone who believes in any of that QAnon garbage can eat shit directly from my asshole. Glad I didn't grab DMC V yet. I'm done with the series as long as he's involved.

For starters it needs to be addressed that Langdon has had a lot going on and supposedly hadn't kept up on the news and when asked did not get a proper neutral description of the events of what's been going on with Mignogna, as the hosts in this interview are stern "Vic Standers;
I don't think I was following the Vic Mignogna situation when this started so my opinion on this interview is actually worse than pre-bump.

Ever wonder if intelligent life existed elsewhere in the Universe? If higher intelligent beings from other worlds do exist? Are they here on Earth? If so, then why? Why don’t they make themselves more public? Why the secrecy?

In this series Reuben Langdon interviews actual ETs or EDs (Extra Dimensionals) as they call themselves. Each episode focuses on one particular race or “Collective” of Beings and/or an actual being who channels through a particular person or persons. The goal for this series is to receive answers to questions that people have been asking since nearly the beginning of time – lets find out the big picture perspective of…who we are …why we are here …and where we are going.

God damn it. This is really disapointing.

There is almost nobody left from youtube that hasn't disapointed me.

Stop Skeleton From Fighting is probably the only channel that made me respect them more and more as more videos come out.

Yeah, I recently started watching SSFF and they have really impressed me. I was very pleasantly surprised that they got their facts straight in regards to Poison from Final Fight in a recent video, and they didn't just repeat the same "It was censorship" urban legend.

Dammit, looks like another person I’m scrubbing from YouTube and twitch. She talked about him on a stream shortly after this thread went up so I was just hoping she hadn’t heard his shit yet. :(

That video in particular made me proud to be a fan of them.

Ever since RE2 came out I’ve seen this YouTuber show up on my Twitter feed and Reddit. People really like her but she is not remarkable and this doesn’t help her at all. No huge loss there, IMO.

Jesus shitpiping Christ, where the fuck do they find these utter arseholes!?
I mean, it's pretty normal to think like these arseholes if you aren't woke and just go with the current of society, it's easy to find them.

Most of the people will always blame the victims and think minorities always go "too far" or are being "too radical" when asking to be treated with respect if you are not socially "deconstructed"

I used to blame the victims too and ignore racial problems (even though I'm latino), it's just a matter of caring about your society, when you live in a bubble, is easy to end up being an asshole.

I am not under any circumstance justifying these pricks, I'm just saying, sadly, it's the normal thing to do, being a shithead. They should educate themselves about social issues.

Oh, GODDAMMIT. I really liked him.
And now you can't...

This dude has been the VA for Dante going back to 4, including Marvel vs. Capcom since then. It's entirely possible nobody really has much of an idea about his personal beliefs - or didn't fully grasp them in context
Why the hell should they be concerned with his personal beliefs throughout the '00s? Being hypercritical of someone's social viewpoints save for things like outright racist or anti-semetic statements is a recent issue that companies react to.

He’s voiced his beliefs recently though—what are you even referring to here?
