    @Frosty840 No, I was looking at it in the context of criticism about the trailer. I just feel like this is a criticism on a meta-aspect of the game (the trailer) that would make more sense if it had been directed at the game as a whole.

    It just doesn't seem that profound or important when it's a trailer which is obviously poised for marketing purposes, and obviously a fragment of the game as a whole.

    I don't think that the journalist posed questions/criticism to Cage that they may not have posed to a filmmaker, etc. I think it was rather silly for Cage to counter like that. But I do think their level of scrutiny for a bleepin' trailer seems rather misplaced, and was really at a level one would normally reserve for a final product.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    @yuberus I don't think you understood what he said correctly. He's not saying there was no conscious choice to write the topic into the game. He is saying that the way it came up in the creative process wasn't simply, "Oh, let's look at some difficult human interest topics we can add to the game--ooh, look, child abuse! Let's slot that in!"

    @Thetick How is it simplistic? The game is about various paths you can choose that lead to different outcomes. If anything it is more complex (at least in terms of synthesis of the moving parts of the situation or scene). Maybe you could say the depiction of abuse is simplistic, but you're going off one scene in a trailer.

    Agree with Pratchett though; Cage shouldn't, and doesn't have to be defensive. It's a work of fiction--no one can really tell him "you cannot make this game or scene"--and he lost an opportunity to delve into the fabric that makes up the game.

    Also I feel that most people are seeing the forest for the trees. The trailer is less about the abusive situation between the parent and the child but more about the android's place in this human situation and the nature of the gameplay.

    @Traffe Wow, I just finished my first Sports Mode race in the full game. Not sure if it was because everyone was new and going by the SR 'rules' (I have a B rating, but that's what you start out with), but it was *incredibly* well mannered. One guy was driving a little eagerly, and bumped me from behind slightly (enough to throw me off and let him overtake me) and crossed the finish line before me.

    But it was a real pleasure and a laugh to see him penalized appropriately, and losing the placement. I feel this is an improvement since the demo last week, where even though someone hit you from behind and it was obviously their mistake, you would lose SR points, and they would not be affected. Here, my SR was not affected at all (in fact I gained SR points at the end of the race), so it looks like they've fixed that. This can only get better =)

    @Traffe I was in the closed betas as well as the recent demo. Each one has brought the game closer to the idea of 'clean racing', so much so that the overall effect is definitely not a game you go to for a destruction derby. It's not perfect, of course, but the online experience was starkly different to say, online on Driveclub.

    Haha, Jazza returns! Was wondering who was going to cover this. (Haven't read the review yet, but will relish it fully soon).

    @usagi704 I think that argument turns a little different with Switch, because the major catch is "hey you can now play this on the go!" That brings it out from the 'companion console' status (which even I kind of saw the past Nintendo systems as).

    It's kind of hilarious that they projected sales in terms of "other retro consoles", ignoring the fact that they are, well, *Nintendo*. Like a "you don't even know the power you wield" kind of thing.

    Although, I guess for things like this, it is the fiscally conservative thing to do.

    @NiceGuyNeon Good questions. I imagine the response will vary across the board. In order to do this, you have to care enough about the issues raised by the video to actively issue the copyright infringement request. Of course, many large developers could have their legal teams responsible for Youtube simply add this type of thing to their 'blacklists', since they have that legal machinery at their disposal. For indies, it really depends on how much they care and whether they feel that taking the time to do this is worth it.

    The one issue I see in your post is the question of whether or not companies will start takedowns more flagrantly. The thing is that there is no 'unwarranted takedown', at least legally. The reason for taking something down in this manner never comes into it, other than that the copyright holder does not give permission to the individual transmitting their work. We can argue and publicly debate about it, and perhaps take action to change the laws around copyright, but that's the extent of 'appropriateness of takedowns'.Edited 2 times.
