@Amiga4000

Phew! Now I won’t feel like sinking the Yamato in Blue War III every time I fight E Honda in Street Fighter 2! I always wondered why I had the impulse to win back the Pacific for the Allies after a few bouts!

@Amiga4000

"Woke" and "weak" are not the same thing.

Pandering to politically correct ‘snowflakes’ is always weak/woke IMHO!

Not surprised, editing history is something they do a lot!

It's part of how they play make believe.

it is a shame about this WOKE stuff, I think it is important to be aware of things like sexism, culture sensitive, religions and race when making new games, films, tv, new media or even public comments, but I do think it going to far to alter history, old media, and cancel culture new stuff.

Still I doubt it will effect the base game so this doesn't bother me too much.

So, basically...

If they keep the rising sun they might offend parts of the world that's historically not so keen on the Japanese empire.

If they remove the symbol they offend people who get offended by people getting offended.

I think it's more OK to offend the second group.

@Amiga4000

I'm surprised that's all they've done.. They normally like to remove any trace of femininity. The woke fascists have infected all forms of entertainment & debased it to various degrees, especially the franchises such as Star Trek, Star Wars & the comic industry. This is why I try to get hard copy's of any entertainment I like, because it's only going to get worse as the Woke cultists continue to alter history & old entertainment.

Exactly!

@to those
who talk about "altering history" in that context here or brainfart on "woke cultists" or whatsoever in general: boys, please, play the damn old versions of the game and stop whining, you're embarassing.

Yeah, because absolutes and truth are a fictitious inventions given to us like a straight jacket and we are free to reinvent morality, identity heck even blot out history we don’t like on a daily basis (1984 anyone)? That worked out well in the 20th century didn’t it?! Snowflake pleasing post-truth oblivion here we come?!

I personally think we’re better off remembering the atrocities of Imperial Japanese Empire rather than to airbrush it out of all cultural references! I mean what better way to represent a failed imperial force than an overweight sumo wrestler who may have quick hands presently but who will quickly find his arteries choked with cholesterol and die an early death like the Japanese Naval Fleet choked on a lack of oil supply! Simple ironies now lost to us

As I said I play the old versions. The point is, pretending this shit isn't a problem is a mistake, as we end up with things like Luke Skywalker being debased, Captain Picard being berated on his own show for being an old white man & Roddenberry's Star Trek being reduced to a dystopian future, instead of good story's we get virtue signalling.

The same happened in the comics industry they went woke, the industry slandered the customers for not wanting it & now the creators are on poverty wages, while DC publishing has been stripped of ip by Warner Bros/ A.T&T as they prepare to auction off the publishing arm.

While over in marvel, the woke bi Wolverine is in a 3 way relationship, flirting with Cyclops, while the rest of the hero's talk about woke politics, sex & food. nobody wants this shit, but they're propped up by Disney. Problem is While these corporations are pushing this shit Comic company's are closing down, because it doesn't sell. also this was happening before the pandemic.

The woke cultists destroy everything, I watched it happen in the comic industry, Film/TV is next. They regard things you love as a platform to push their politics nothing more. Most sane people are liberal who lean centre left or centre right, but the woke cultists regard everybody who don't bend the knee as far right or worse, regardless of political affiliation. Sorry for the rant

Spot on. At the moment a member of Lucasfilm's The Mandolorian has been cancelled, because the woke cult didn't like a tweet, disney labelled it abhorrent & got her agent to drop her, the woke activists in the media have also begun to slur her through news websites.. And For What??

- For basically asking people to stop dehumanising EACH OTHER, because we know where that leads from history... The Woke cultists are the new brown shirts..

By all means, let's pander to the lowest common intellectual denominator and let them rule our culture. That will end well.

But why does this wrench turn in only one direction?

Communists murdered hundreds of millions of people with Cultural Revolutions, failed Five-Year plans, manufactured famines, and flat-out genocide. The Italian Communist Party was for decades a full-on apologist, and continues to sport Soviet logos as their own and print it on their publications even after numerous Eastern Europeans pointed out that they found that no less offensive than Nazi symbols.

Trump incites a riot and Twitter bans him (yay!) but an ESPN contributor who during the Minneapolis riots tweeted a photo of a building in flames with the caption "Burn that s--- down" still has his account. So does an Iranian official who advocates the violent destruction of Isra^H^H^H^H"the Zionist state." (That sort of advocacy of violence apparently does not violate Twitter's terms of service.)

(Ironically, the ESPN contributor was soon tweeting terrified commentary because the rioters, whom he suddenly starting calling "animals", tried to enter a gated community near his.)

One could go on and on about these double standards. But, sure, let's pander to people who make a career of getting offended -- so long as they're on "our" side, right? whatever side the television happens to tell us that we're on today?

Hi Everyone,

I have an idea. Lets talk about Amiga stuff on AmigaWorld.net. I am more than confident there are plenty of sites or social media apps, that you can have this conversation.

Thanks,

Yogi

@Bezzen

Arguing that a position is either poorly chosen or selectively applied is not the same as being offended at that position.
