  • 12/18/14--08:53: Hatred Controversy
  • Overview

    Hatred is an upcoming third-person shooter PC video game in development by Polish studio Destructive Creations and scheduled for release in 2015. Due to the highly controversial premise of the game, in which the protagonist embarks on a “genocide crusade”[1] to murder innocent civilians and law enforcement officers, Hatred immediately became a hot topic of controversy within online gaming communities upon its Greenlight reception on Valve’s Steam in December 2014.

    Background

    On October 16th, 2014 Destructive Creations announced its first title Hatred by releasing a teaser trailer on YouTube. The premiere of the trailer, which features in-game screenshots and footage of the protagonist picking weapons and killing people in grimdark settings, was characterized as “controversial” by multiple video game bloggers.[2][3]



    Gameplay

    In the game, the player assumes the role of a villain protagonist who begins a massive genocide mission to “cleanse” the society by killing innocent civilians, as well as law enforcement and military personnel. According to the developers’ description, Hatred was conceived as a reactionary experiment to the current zeitgeist in the video gaming industry that focuses on vivid colors and political correctness.

    Notable Developments

    Epic Games’ Statement

    On October 16th, 2014, Epic Games, the creators of Unreal Engine, issued a statement requesting Destructive Creations to remove its logo from the trailer and other promotional materials for the title.

    “Epic Games isn’t involved in this project. Unreal Engine 4 is available to the general public for use ‘for any lawful purpose,’ and we explicitly don’t exert any sort of creative control or censorship over projects. However, the video is using the trademarked Unreal Engine 4 logo without permission from Epic, and we’ve asked for the removal of our logo from all marketing associated with this product.”

    Steam Greenlight

    On December 15th, Hatred was submitted to Steam Greenlight, where it quickly began climbing up the charts to the top ten list, but later that same day, a Valve employee confirmed that the title wouldn’t be approved for release in an e-mail to the video game news site Polygon.

    “Based on what we’ve seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. […] As such we’ll be taking it down.”

    Shortly afterwards, Hatred was removed from Steam Greenlight, due to its violent content. In response, Destructive Creations released a statement to address the removal of the title.

    Dear Hatred Fans,

    As you know today we’ve launched our Steam Greenlight campaign for Hatred. Unfortunately after couple of hours Steam shut it down giving the below as reasons behind their decision:

    “We wanted you guys to know that based on what we see on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we’ll be taking it down.”

    Even though games like Manhunt or Postal are still available on Steam we of course fully respect Valve’s decision, as they have the right to do so. In the same time we want to assure you that this won’t in any way impact the game’s development, game’s vision or gameplay features we’re aiming for. The game is still to be released in Q2 2015 as planned.

    Moreover we don’t treat this as a failure because yet again this showed us a huge community support we’re totally overwhelmed with. After only a couple of hours Greenlight campaign being live, Hatred gathered 13,148 up votes and ended up on a #7 on Top 100 list.

    This is the best proof for us that there are diehard Hatred fans out there, waiting for this game to be released. And that we need to keep going to deliver them a game that offers exciting and challenging gameplay.

    The whole situation only pushes us forward to go against any adversity and not to give up. It also makes us want to provide our fans Hatred pre-orders sooner, as many of you have asked for them.

    At the end of the day you, gamers will judge if we were able to do a game that’s simply fun to play.

    Destructive Creations Team


    Reinstatement on Steam Greenlight

    But on the following day, Hatred was reinstated on the service with a personal apology from Gabe Newell]

    “Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight. Since I wasn’t up to speed, I asked around internally to find out why we had done that. It turns out that it wasn’t a good decision, and we’ll be putting Hatred back up. My apologies to you and your team. Steam is about creating tools for content creators and customers.”

  • 12/18/14--10:54: Swiss Army Knives
  • About

    The Swiss Army Knife is a multi-purpose tool invented by Switzerland for use in WWII. The knife has become iconic in being more than just a knife. This characteristic of the Swiss Army Knife is often parodied and exaggerated online.

    Origin

    During the late 1880s, the Swiss Army decided to purchase a new folding pocket knife for their soldiers. This knife was to be suitable for use by the army in opening canned food and disassembling the Swiss service rifle. In January 1891, the knife received the official designation Modell 1890[1].

    Spread

    According to Carl Elsener, head of Victorinox in 2009, US soldiers bought Swiss Army knives in huge numbers at PX stores on military bases following the conclusion of the Second World War. As German: Schweizer Offiziersmesser was too difficult for them to say, they called it the “Swiss Army knife”, the name by which the knife is now most commonly known worldwide[1]. The design of the knife and its versatility have both led to worldwide recognition.

  • 12/18/14--14:26: Achievement Hunter
  • About
    Achievement Hunter is an ongoing series created by Rooster Teeth staff member Geoff Ramsey, in which staff members and contributors from the community demonstrate how to earn achievements in various games and enjoy them in various ways.

    Origins
    Achievement Hunter was born from Pattillo and Ramsey’s interest in gaming achievements and the realization that there wasn’t a community-based achievement website. In turn Achievement Hunter was created, which shares the design, user profiles and forums of the main Rooster Teeth website. The site regularly releases achievement guides, Easter egg videos, and select volunteers from the Rooster Teeth community to help moderate the website. The Achievement Hunter Twitter handle is @AchievementHunt.

    The most frequent videos come from the six most prolific employees and top golden Achievement Hunter cast members: Geoff Ramsey (RT co-founder / AH co-founder), Jack Pattillo (Achievement Hunter’s first employee), Gavin Free (RvB Season 7 director / Host of The Slow-Mo Guys), Ray Narvaez, Jr. (Community Hunter turned full-time employee), Michael Jones (Host of Rage Quit), and Ryan Haywood (Game Fails manager). Unlike any other dedicated-achievement website, Achievement Hunter is highly dependent on public contributions and has guides across different games and platforms, allowing the site to expand its focus from Xbox 360 games to those on PC, PS3, Steam, iPhone, and Windows Phone 7. Along with the main Rooster Teeth website, Achievement Hunter has achieved great popularity since its inception.

    About

    “Rape Culture” is the concept that sexual assault and rape is normalized or encouraged by society through biases regarding sex and gender, including forms of victim blaming like “slut shaming.” The theory has been hotly debated within and outside of feminist academic circles over what constitutes rape culture and whether it is overemphasized as a cause of rape in Western society.

    Origin

    According to Wikipedia,[1]“rape culture” was initially coined by second wave feminists in the 1970s to raise awareness about the prevalence of rape in American culture, which some argued was a result of widespread misogyny and sexism in society. On October 31st, 1974, the book Rape: The First Sourcebook for Women by New York Radical Feminists was released, which contained the first published use of the phrase. In 1975, the documentary film Rape Culture was released, which investigates the concept cultural normalization of rape of men and women (shown below).
