I had my expectations at zero and while I was still ever so slightly disappointed, I would MUCH rather see Ken and James talk about this game and about KI than not have anything at all. I would watch that show every week.
I honestly don’t understand why people get so angry about stuff like this. I don’t know if it’s a lack of self-awareness or immaturity or what, but seeing people rage about getting something like this as opposed to exactly what they want, which they know they’re not going to get anyways, is beyond frustrating.
I get it, people want a nice, juicy KI4 announcement or a new season or whatever. We all do. But when they try to reach out to the community in any way, shape or form, maybe don’t screech at them for having the gall to approach you with anything other than the exact thing you want.
I really like the people on this page, and I think that most of us tend to be relatively level headed. But man, there are some people out there that just have no idea how they make the rest of us look and seemingly don’t care and I’m tired of it.
I’m tired of the FGC being viewed as a bunch of racist, sexist, homophobic jackasses that whine and complain constantly about everything and do their very best to make people feel unwelcome. I know I’m slightly off topic here, but I’m just tired of these types of people being the loud voices that screech and howl above the rest of the buzz in most genre communities.
I know that’s just video games, and comics, and TV and movies and basically anything else involving similar cultures, but it doesn’t have to be that way and it ■■■■■■ shouldn’t. Call me intolerant of intolerance, I don’t care. I’m tired of loud, stupid babies crying their rivers of tears and drowning the rest of us in their sea of negativity.
Yuck, that’s an ugly metaphor. But you get what I mean. I’m definitely NOT saying that everyone has to be happy all the time and praise the devs at all costs. But there’s a difference between constructive criticism, useful feedback, and being a productive member of a gaming community and bringing nothing but toxicity, negativity and the type of hatred and frustration that normally permeates every other aspect of your life to this board, or the facebook group, or the streams, etc.
These people make the experience worse for everyone else, from the people taking the time to put on the show, to the people that actually wanted to tune in and experience it. God, just be sad or angry or disappointed in a way that doesn’t stink up the place for everyone else. Why is that so difficult? When did KI streams become a time and place for people to gather and wallow together in their misery and infect everyone else with it?
Again, I know, that’s kinda what streaming is like these days. Twitch chats, like Youtube comment sections are basically a landfill for some to deposit their trash in to. I just wish it wasn’t like that. There are so few places on gaming sites where it feels like everyone can be mature, constructive, and actually enjoy what they’re talking about. I consider this site to be one of those places. It’d be great if the stuff devs probably see a lot more, stuff like this Q&A stream, were like that as well.
Oh well, maybe they take people’s frustration or anger or whatever as impatience; people wanting more KI. Maybe that tells them something. Who knows.
I just want to be clear on this in case you take any of what I said above as being directed at you. It’s definitely not. There are a lot of good people on this board and I consider you to be one of them. That said, I think the Q&A is still worth discussing, so I’m glad it’s staying open.
