I doubt gaming developers will unionize. Gamers and twitch streamers often care little about systematic issues, Destiny, Vauch (sp?), Hasan probably the only one on twitch advocating unions but is not really a gamer

Gamers =/= Game Developers

Trust me, Game Developers are all talking about unionization right now. Especially the ones just entering the industry right now during this youth-driven unionization wave around the country. The most vocal minority of gamers who post toxic consumer manbaby takes on social media... Those are the ones who harass and send death threats TO Game Developers. Their self-centered/childish/toxic views are not representative of the people making the games.

Also, fuck Destiny/Vaush. Pieces of shit. Hasan is cool though.

There is a culture behind games and twitch seems to be fostering the youths…xqc and faze clan are all these kids favorites,  hasan is smart but his narcissism gets me- he talks about himself way too much.  Also for large gaming studios and developers i think there is a still a lack of diversity…still mostly rich white males controlling the market/business


edit: this just came out today, find that Wolff has the best takes on unionizing

Progress will be slow but its happening. Sony's latest studio acquisition to develop live-service games is led by a female (Haven Studios in MTL led by Jade Raymond). I believe MS has a few women in pretty prominent roles under Phil Spencer. The biggest darling indie studio at the moment is led by I believe an Indian-American (Supergiant, studio behind Hades). Part of the issue is legacy problems from with people who entered the business in the early to mid 90s now reaching the top of the field when it was primarily white men entering the business in NA. Outside of Japanese developers, I can't really think of any diverse legends from that era outside of John Romero behind Doom.

So I haven't been following this as closely as I would have like 5 years ago when I cared more, but having seen bits here and there it looks like they had to basically start from scratch on all the animations? It looks worse than skater XL, I assume with how they ended things with Black box previously most of that team told them to fuck themselves. I'm pretty oblivious to this whole loot box discussion but it doesn't even seem like the same game and if they're as focused on pleasing little streamer kids who have never skated in their lives this could be awful.

Also how much do you think they had to pay Cuz to come back?

I mean the build that leaked was from last September I think? They're definitely not spending early work on fine tuning animations, that'll come later

Tbh it looks like Skate 3 to me... I don't know if people just have rose-tinted glasses or what but I'm very surprised to see you say it doesn't even look like the same game because to me it does and that's a negative

Quite a few people yeah, notably creative directors Cuz and Deran who were part of all three original games.
