A project heavily criticized on social media, entitled "A Feminist Deck" announced in a private backer update they are cancelling the project and offering refunds. The update, sent by a source who wishes to remain anonymous, sheds some light on why the project was cancelled.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is coming to Nintendo Wii U and NX systems in 2017. New features, and a video preview were released at E3, and attendees were treated to demo play as well. Players saw just a small portion of what is reported to be a very large game, and the reaction overall seems to have been fairly positive.
How often have you been in a game where a player with hundreds of hours in does nothing but complain about how awful said game is? How irritating is it when you see a group of people on social media trashing a company for 'ruining a game' only to buy said game when it releases, or worse, preorder? What is it about gamers that makes us work against our own interests? Is it because we're insatiable or habitual collectors? Do we hope it will be better than we expect? Is it because we value money differently when it comes to games? Whatever it is, it's time to put up or shut up. Use the one weapon we have to make our voices heard because we're being taken advantage of, and we're letting it happen.
