As usual, EA's was one of the worst conferences ever, EA never learns. Though it was already expected, so nothing to be disappointed. At least Anthem, Battlefield 5, Unravel 2 and Sea of Solitude looked very good. Great that Unravel 2 is already out.

Anthem looks so boring, omg.

E eh?

Seriously, these bastards are a stain on the industry. Can't stand them anymore.

Andrew Wilson looks like a vampire, which is fitting given they're a bunch of bloodsucking, souless hacks.

Sea of Solitude looks interesting.

My last hopes about Anthem died today, what a piece of boredom

Battlefield is the only thing from the conference I'm likely to spend any money on.

Anthem looks boring and way too similar to destiny in its design which I also hated. Hopefully they show something less staged and more indicative of playing, something with more of a narrative hook that'll change my mind. Otherwise this is just going to be another bioware title that's turned out shit since EA bought them.

EDIT: and it's online only too. And with that, I won't be touching this game at all.

Aye, that Sea of Solitude. The PR woman for that was talking some shite. Really, who gives a toss what the deeper underlying themes are for your game. Emo philosophical nonsense. Artsy fartsy twaddle. If you think people play games to ponder deep emotional states, then you're barking up the wrong tree, love.

Anthem showed less than last year, although that was obviously proof of concept. The format of the game doesn't really interest me, although it looks quite impressive visually (although not as good as last year).

Sea of solitude looks pretty interesting, the concept and the visual design.

This is pathetically condescending and a bit sexist. There is nothing wrong with designers putting deeper themes into their work, it is almost always the case. And she was understandbly excited about her project.

Oh god, here we go again.

Right, so not liking this so called "deeper theme" because I play games to have fun and not have my head melted is sexist now? Ahhh, the modern internet in all its fine glory.

You want to know what's "pathetically condescending" as you (ironically) put it? Her standing up on stage thinking she's Freud trying to explain to everyone the complexities of human behaviour and describing how when people get lonely they turn into monsters. Aye, yo-fucking-ho! I don't know about anyone else, but whenever I get lonely, I go to Pornhub.

How is what he said sexist? Ffs, look up the definition of sexism.
I think it's because I used the word 'love', which by today's boogaloo standards means you're a Harvey Weinstein.

It is pretty condescending. Especially the way you used it. Don't pretend you were trying to be endearing. Lol.

Wasn't trying to be endearing, Korn, no. It's just a figure of speech. Well, it is where I'm from, where people are a bit thicker skinned. Maybe I should be a wee bit more formal, and not type how I talk? But that's just boring.

I missed the first couple of minutes of the show (BFV) and I just wanted to see EA Play for BFV. I hope they have a good one on xbox

Condescending, maybe. But sexist? Nope. Not at all.
Or is saying 'relax dude' also sexist?
Sexism is discrimination based on gender. How did he discriminate?
Look up the definition of condescending, it might help.

This, is by definition, sexism "sexism in language is an offensive reminder of the way the culture sees women"

Sexism isn't just discrimination. displaying a sense of superiority to another sex based on prejudices is also sexism.

Using "love" is often used as a means to undermine women and what they're saying. Which is exactly what condescension is. Its the act of patronising superiority of which Mr white displayed towards a woman.

He said himself he wasn't trying to be endearing, so...

What's up?
