Wait is the story of Marcus and Jacob fighting for days in the wasteland a reference to Jacob wrestling the angel in the desert?

Other people have said this more eloquently than me but like. Vault 76 would be a terrifying villain if Bethesda was paying attention.

Like. Actually let me back up. I think vault dwellers in general should be more unrepentant assholes. As long as Bethany Esda sees vaults as the Protagonist-o-matic 9000, vault dwellers are always going to be written as at the very least mildly sympathetic. Even in 1 and 3, when the Overseer kicks you out, there’s a certain sympathetic nostalgia attached to them because it’s ~where you grew up~. But Vault Tec was a corporation, vault spots were sold to the highest bidder (I mean, for gods sake, Vault 111 was literally attached to a gated community), they should be full of rich dickheads who are viscous, power hungry, and think that they’re the best of the best because they bought survival in the wasteland.

AND THEN! The whole best and brightest thing! What would the “best and brightest” look like to Vault Tec, a corporation with STRONG ties to the Enclave? If the vaults are already full of rich dickheads, what would a vault with people who had been told that theyre the “best and brightest” look like? Of people who remember how good they had it in the days before the war, now waiting until the dust settles and they can regain what they’ve lost? And you wouldn’t even need to tweak much abo the Overseer, who is like, textually a eugenicist who would rather sacrifice her poor coal miner husband for her career than save his life and move to DC. It’s just. It’s all there Bethesda just pay attention

Everyone loves to use “well-meaning ignorance” when it comes to being radicalized into hate movements.

what the fuck is danganronpa just play among us like a normal person

As someone who worked on Hogwarts Legacy, please please please buy the game. It’s unfair that the hard work of hundreds of people– that the jobs of hundreds of people should be affected by a person that barely had anything to do with the actual work.  Whether or not the game does well doesn’t really affect JK. She’s already rich. She’s getting crazy revenue from every single Harry Potter merchandise in existence. Nothing will change that. 

Boycotting Hogwarts legacy won’t hurt Rowling. 

You’ll just hurt us. The people whose jobs rely on the game doing well. You’ll hurt the artists and writers that spent hundred of hours toiling away at a project that they love. We love Harry Potter.  Many of us grew up reading that series and plenty of us are Harry Potter nerds. Imagine, a Harry Potter game made by the kids and teens who grew up reading the books and watching the movies. As well as the adults who read those books to their kids.

Instead, donate money to your favorite trans charity. Stream the game and donate that money to organizations that teach of inclusion and love. Use Hogwarts Legacy to support the trans community BECAUSE Rowling will hate it. 

Don’t force your 11 year old self to miss out on something fun, beautiful, and magical. Use that righteous anger as a weapon of love instead.

Game Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEqP5NKoqu4 Edit: This is the opinion of one person hoping you’ll buy the game and does not reflect the company’s stance on anything. Thank you for reading!

Operating under the assumption OP actually works on the company, because I’m not opening that can of worms, this is a bad post.

The problem with “you’ll just hurt the people who worked on it” is that you can apply it to everything. Like, if a game is bad, just truly technically awful, unfun, not buying it will still hurt the people that worked on it. But for some reason when its against Rowling and not just, you know, not buying a game, its a punishment to all the poor salaried workers.

The two unfortunate truths are that 1) everything, good or bad, has a group of people who’s labor went into it and 2) unless you are spending money on everything at all times, there is someone whose job might be more secure because of your purchasing power. Focus on dismantling capitalism instead of guilting people into buying video games.

Also I cannot believe the gall of op to tell people to donate to a trans charity AFTER buying a AAA video game
