I hate that I feel like I have to make this topic. Honestly. I was excited about Yooka-Laylee and had no reason to doubt whether I was going to love it or not, but I refuse to buy it now, no matter how good it is. The short version of the story is: Playtonic has made some very, very stupid, selfish, and anti-consumer decisions in the past few days. Essentially, they had a fly land on their hand and dealt with it by cutting off their entire arm. This all came about when Playtonic jumped the gun after they where told about one of their vocal contributors making some strange political remarks during a podcast after the host turned the discussion sour. Without hesitation, and without reaching out for any sort of clarification, they cut the contributor's lines from the game. Now here's where the proverbial crapfest really begins. They made a statement about it, claiming that they wanted everyone to feel comfortable playing their game, and severing all ties to the contributor was the best course of action. Of course, people who backed the game on Kickstarter began asking for refunds. In response, Playtonic began deleting their threads and banning them, both from their own forums and the game's Steam discussions. The moderators responsible for this then began posting about it on Twitter, insulting the users who requested refunds. The vocal contributor in question is Jon Jafari, better known as JonTron. He has explained what happened, and you are encouraged to watch his response here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVcz5cgUbbA Now, Playtonic could still fix all of this. They just need to own up to their mistakes and try their best to fix what they've broken. However, the problem here goes far beyond this one predicament, and beyond Playtonic and games in general. People these days are so quick to judge, take offense, and act irrationally, and all about the smallest possible things. Our society is cannibalizing itself. If you're reading this, please, keep a cool head, consider the consequences of your actions, and treat others the way you want them to treat you.
