Really excited for the game. I tend to dislike most extreme social activists anyway, so Rowling’s third wave intersectional feminism coming into conflict with the more extreme trans rights positions means it’s basically a wash for me and doesn’t need to impact this purchasing decision.

JK Rowling may not be directly involved, but she will get a cut of the profits from this game. Though I think she's a horrible human being, I'm still interested in this game.

MTE. The whole situation is a circular headache, and at the end of the day she's built an indestructible empire so I have no problem buying this game.

 

It's like people who think Bezo's is satan to humanity yet are still perched on twitch every day. Nah, I'm going to buy this day one and fully enjoy it. JKR can eat rocks for all I care or don't care!

The simple solution if you want to play this game and not support Rowling is buy a used copy. You'll have to wait an extra few days, weeks, or months but if you use eBay or similar sites the only one getting your money is the previous owner.

Huh I never even knew it was meant to be out this year I just presumed it hadn't got a release date or it was always going to be 2022

Amazing how the controversy around this game gets worse with every month; although I suppose that's no surprise since JK Rowling is an almost Trump-like figure with how she's been attempting to capitalize on outrage. Still, it is ironic to see an alleged feminist's franchise be run by a right wing misogynist.

 

A year and a half ago, I would have said, "yeah, I'll probably play this someday", now the franchise is entirely ruined for me. Not at all the same class of game, but I'd suggest Ikenfell as an alternative; it's a cute, very queer indie RPG with a 'group of teens in a magic school battling evil' plot that's extremely well written, surprisingly.

I'm still looking forward to the game, I personally don't think we should write it off and destroy the other employees work they are putting into this game just because the game is associated with those 2 people, 1 person the game can't really move away from as it's her franchise but maybe it can move away from the games lead designer (I don't know I'm just spitballing) but sadly it does look like it's going to be written off and it's probably going to tank hard when it's released.

Typical ResetEra overreaction. 

 

On one hand, I want to ask what kind of bad things this guy said, because I've only heard about one video so far, and I thought it was completely fine.

On the other hand, I want to evacuate from this thread before it (possibly) goes of the rails 😁
