Spiders Steelrise je Woke Garbage

Prije toga, pokrivajući zadirkivanje Spidersa objava, Proglasio sam da ostajem skeptičan prema tvrtki. Prije Technomancer, programer je proizveo neispravne, ali istovremeno i ugodne RPG-ove. Čak i sa Technomancer, prvo poglavlje ostaje jedno od najboljih istraživanja filozofske rasprave o sigurnosti i slobodi. Nezgodno je da se nakon prvog poglavlja igra okupirala tanko zakrivljenom prolegalnom imigracijom i crnom životnom materijom.

Greedfall was a surprising return to form. Not entirely free of any wokeness as every group was a multi-ethnic society. This went on to serve the game’s narrative exploration of the various cultural ideas. Alas, though it is far from being a philosophical treaty, it nevertheless was a worthwhile experience regarding the exploration of the presented concepts. One that hopefully showed the company had returned to form and finished with including politically hamfisted narratives into their games.

Then they announced the game, and it is so woke it attempts to rewrite history. Set during an alternative history French Revolution, it sees characters assume the role of the female automata, Aegis. As a sworn guardian to Queen Marie-Antoinette, you will combat the mad King Louis XVI’s mechanized hordes that he is using to crush the French Revolution.

Here’s the problem, setting aside the apparent toxic masculinity themes and multi-ethnic French Revolution, Louis XVI, during the beginning of his reign, attempted to reform French society. He abolished serfdom, removed the land and labor taxes, and lessened religious discrimination. The reason the French Revolution happened was a direct result of these reforms angering the French Nobility who were against them. During the same period, France experienced several failed harvests that drove widespread starvation throughout the entire nation. Leading to the political elite inciting the anger of the people into a full-on revolt.

Louis XVI is also famous for having helped form America by supporting the founding Fathers in their war of independence against Britain. Marie Antoinette, by comparison, was considered a treasonous whore by the French people They believed she had more allegiance to her native Austria than she did with them. During the revolution she spent vast sums of the nation’s finances on lavish parties, dresses, and other luxuries while her people starved to death.

Da ste kreirali igru, koga biste od ovih dvojice nazvali ludim monarhom? Kralj koji je dao svom narodu slobodu ili Kraljica koja je trošila riznicu dok je njen narod gladovao?
