Welcome, welcome to City 17

This is unrelated to scene but I'll post here because I'm boiling and there's not many other places on internet where I'm socially involved.
Take a look at this release on Steam:
Now I guess that most sceners are left winged or otherwise carefree, but I know there are some wise souls here. How are your feelings about this? Because I can't believe this. No age restrictions (Steam is 13yo up, theoretically...), banning of people who complain, leaving porn-related posts untouched, "family friendly" and "education" tags. Now that isn't Pouet or some other more or less obscure site, but the worlds biggest and most popular internet computer store, how the fuck is that possible?

So what exactly is wrong about sex and sex education?

The question is what does it have to do with sex or education?

The question is what does it have to do with the demoscene?

I went to read the comments. I was *somewhat* trepidatious - thinking that I'd come across a whole lot of /b/ tier CP stuff.
Came away... surprised.
harder than Dark Souls II

I think you should be banned for your usage of "wise souls". Can't tell if you're just trolling...

So, is it the berenstein bear? Or the berestain bear?

Seems like a really harmless game in my opinion. And the premise is great and unique.

Families are made through... what act again? :)

how the fuck is that possible?

99.99% of parents buying PEGI-18 games (like COD) for 8 years old children -> It's totally more disturbing than this innocent educative game.

open your mind, 2015 is not middle-age.

this innocent educative game.

Rez - I have a daughter around the same age as the girl.

I think the litmus test here should be - would you let your 11 yo. daughter play this game?

My answer - no. I don't think this game is aimed at children at all. And that's what I find so disturbing about it...

Yea I'm a parent too, and you're just a bunch of nerds without a clue in these matters :P
added on the 2015-03-02 00:27:20 by rutra80 rutra80
rez: you have a point there, though it is much more acceptable when a parent makes a decision what ones child can play or not, than when some pervert politics put some pro-homosexualism or plain porn cartoons or comics straight in the face of children under disguise of "sex education".
As for the openmindness and middle-age, the enlightenment that you have impression you're under, is in fact clueless dim naivety.

Well thank you for consulting all of of nerds without a clue, whom mostly can passive-aggressively be labelled as idiots since we don't agree with your political views. I hope you understand that we'll just be on our way now...

So far there were nearly no constructive posts, mostly pinching at me :]
added on the 2015-03-02 00:48:16 by rutra80 rutra80
So you first pinch at people and you're surprised that they're pinching back? :)
