The SJW movement Vs devs, retailers and Gamers

I have been wondering for over a year’s time when the big turning point would come for the games industry (I started to count the days once GG took off back in August last year), because the SJW movement has been sucking out the fun out of the games industry for a long time now. In short, they have been a real pain in the ass for Gamers, developers and publishers alike (and they still are a big pain in the ass). I mean, just take a lot at some of the past SJW events (this includes everything from video games, comics to TV-series):

– The SJWs and feminists rants over Linkle in “Hyrule Warriors Legends
– Team Ninja won´t release Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in the West due to attacks from SJWs?
– Direct2drive gets into trouble because of a Gaming advertising campaign
– Is Le Cartel´s ultra violent beat-em-up game “Mother Russia Bleeds” really all that much controversial?
– Dynamite Entertainment and the SJWs has destroyed Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
South Park keeps on trolling PC Bros and SJWs in the “Safe Space” episode

It´s a never-ending list really, and keep in mind that I have just presented to you a handful of examples between 2014 and 2015. Well, you get my point. So let´s jump forward to the big clash between Huniepot, Kotaku, Play-Asia and the SJW movement (which took place between the 25th and 26th of November). However, before I do that I think it´s worth mentioning that Direct2drive had a similar SJW backlash experience back in September this year. Nevertheless, I choose to focus solely on Play-Asia and Huniepot´s SJW encounters, since those events took place just recently. So let’s get the show on the road shall we?

direct2drive trigger warning week

Direct2drive triggered quite a few SJWs with their trigger campaign back in September this year.

Huniepot Vs Kotaku and the SJWs

As I was saying, the big turning point in the games industry took place on the 25th of November. And everything started with Huniepot offering Koei Tecmo US 1 million dollars for the DOAX3 US publishing rights, because that triggered a whole chain of reactions in the blink of an eye. First of all, no one saw that offer coming, secondly Huniepot´s offer set the internet on fire (there has been very salty tweets from the SJW movement ever since).

huniepot offers koei-tecmo us 1 million bucks

I really hope that Koei Tecmo US will pick up on that offer. As it could lead to a DOAX3 US release next year.

That´s just the half of it though, because when Kotaku´s senior reporter Patrick Klepek reached out to HuniePot for a comment about their one million-dollar offer to Koei Tecmo US. HuniePot simply dismissed Klepek and Kotaku right away (as seen in the picture down below). In other words, not only has Kotaku been blacklisted (or “ignored”) by Ubisoft and Bethesda, now they’re probably blacklisted by HuniePot as well.

huniepot vs kotaku

Huniepot dissed Kotaku pretty hard.

Play-Asia Vs Kotaku and the SJWs

And once the HuniePot Vs Kotaku and SJW storm had blown over (or at least calmed down a bit). Play-Asia brought the perfect storm into the world of Twitter when they tweeted out the following message two days ago:

play asia vs sjw nonsense

Play-Asia set the Internet on fire with this tweet.

And just when you thought that the perfect storm couldn´t possibly get any more intense, Kotaku´s editor Luke Plunkett took a swing at Play-Asia by tweeting out “How To Lose Friends And Influence Nobody“. It´s not the first time that I´ve seen Plunkett tweet out messages such as this though. For example, just recently Plunkett tweeted out the following message to  Mark Kern (Kern is an American video game designer and the creator of League For Gamers):

“a few people I know and like follow mark “human garbage” kern on twitter, which is a bit sad” – Luke Plunkett, Kotaku editor

play asia vs kotakus luke plunkett and sjws

“Sjws don’t have to be your audience”.

However, Luke Plunkett´s tweet, the SJWs rants and the boycott against Play-Asia got drowned by all the voices that showed their support to Play-Asia. Thus tweets such as this:

play asia wins

Play-Asia gained over +10,000 Twitter followers in ONE single day.

play asia boycott

So much for the boycott against Play-Asia.

“We don´t want to take your games away” – The SJW movement

And I find all of this to be rather funny, especially since “certain” people have claimed for over a year’s time that they don´t want to take our games away from us . Well, we all know what a fat lie that is. As the SJWs has attacked games such as “The Witcher 3“, “Hyrule Warriors Legends“, “Street Fighter V“, “HuniePop”, “Metal gear solid v the phantom pain” with many more in the past.

we dont want to take your games away

So they said, but look at the games industry now…

So you know what? I think that Ken Levine did the right thing when he stood up for freedom of speech and artistic freedom back in October this year, because just look at all the mess that the SJWs has caused to the games industry (censorship, harassment of devs, stopping Asian games from getting a release in the West etc ). In fact, I know developers and publishers that didn´t even dare to comment on the current state with the SJWs and the games industry, when we asked them about it. Hell, some of them even backed out of our interviews because they were afraid of the SJWs wrath “if” they would speak up about them. So who´s the real bullies, fascists and harassers in the games industry?

I tell you who it is, it´s the SJWs. As they try to scare people into being quiet (the truth cannot and will not be silenced), and force developers to compromise with their creative and artistic freedom. So you can think and say what you want about Huniepot and Play-Asia, but they have a lot of balls. And even if they are opportunists (which the SJW movement claim), Play-Asia and Huniepot still fight for creative freedom and freedom of speech. And I support that fight wholeheartedly.

business tactic

I feel the same way, because I don´t want to live in a Tumblr world.

no sjws

The SJW movement is the 2100 century´s answer to the Witch trials in the early modern period in EU (the 1500s).

dead or alive xtreme 3 fat edition

I bet that the SJW movement wouldn´t have cared all that much about DOAX3, “if” the female characters had looked like this.

You can´t hide from the Streisand effect 

Besides, I still don´t understand why the SJWs even bothers about games which they don´t intend to buy in the first place? (I guess that they just want to ruin all the fun for everyone else) I mean, that´s like I would whine over things in “World of Warcraft” (a game which I don´t play or own), or better yet. That I would make demands for things to be changed in Wow, as some of the in-game content might “trigger” or “offend” me. Well, you get my point. Nevertheless, it seems like the SJWs “might” have started a global streisand Effect due to their fight with Play-Asia and HuniePot. Because shortly after the “HuniePot wants the publishing rights for DOAX3 in the States” storm hit the Internet like a sledgehammer, the former Batgirl writer (Gail Simone) tweeted out that she wanted to play “Dead or Alive” (as seen in the picture down below). Well, the streisand effect anyone?

the streisand effect

Well look at that, the former Batgirl writer Gail Simone is interested in the DOA franchise. Nice!

Anyhow, I think that HuniePot and Play-Asia showed a lot of guts and bravery by standing up against the SJWs. Not only that, Play-Asia and HuniePot also sent a clear message to the SJWS that they won´t cave in to their demands. In short, they proved for everyone else in the games industry that you don´t have to fear (or be afraid) of the SJWs. You simply have to stand up for yourself, and put them in their place (that´s how you deal with bullies like a pro). And before I wrap this article up, I would like to point out that I have had my fair share of the SJWs wrath at well (I will share my experience with them in my upcoming Youtube video). Even so, I am not afraid of them. In fact, I will add some of Play-Asia´s ads on our homepage as soon as possible.

With that said, what do you guys and girls think about all of this? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

This is a personal opinion of the writer, and it doesn’t necessarily represent the other writers (nor The Gaming Ground´s) opinions.

I´m a fan of HuniePot´s games, and I´m a customer of Play-Asia.

  • Good. They chose to side with people who obviously buy their products and scorned those who tried to shame them and defied those who wanted them to stop. They made their choice, it paid off nicely for them, my hopes for their continued success.

    • Very much so, I think Play-Asia tripled their Twitter follower fan base (or something like that). Not only that, they received a lot of support as well (from us, for example, we have even added some Play-Asia banners to our site).

      • A Real Libertarian

        I think Play-Asia tripled their Twitter follower fan base (or something like that).

        Before it was ~9,000.

        Now it’s ~24,100.

        So about 2.5x.

  • David

    This may be the best thing I’ve seen in gaming news.

    • Thanks! I got more articles coming up =) Plus a video as well.

  • burdebc

    This kind of makes me want to play Huniepop now. Also I just followed Play-Asia on twitter.

    • David

      I actually want to check out the game, too.

      • Go for it mate, it´s a great game :3

    • There has been quite a lot of people saying that lately, how does a Huniepop giveaway sound to you? 😉

  • Motherfucking Deadpool!

    The great American McGee has this to say:

    • Wow! Great find mate, I missed out on that one. I did say hi to McGee earlier today though. We also hooked-up with Play-Asia 😉 (we got quite a few Play-Asia banners on our site now).

      • Motherfucking Deadpool!

        McGee was one of the first criticising the “feminist queen” and of course he was attacked for it. I always laugh when the SJ-idiots are like “thats it! I’ll destroy my alice games now!!!”.
        The dumases already bought it so why should he give a fuck?

        • True, do you remember this? 😉

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            What the idiotic fanboys don’t get is that Wu, Scamkeesian or anyone else of the clique don’t care about how women in games are portrayed nor do they care about the fanboys themselves. They only want to sell their “products”.

            The infamous indy crew even declared war on AAA-producers in the beginning of 2014. Remember Alex Dipshitz claiming that GTA5 is trash and DEPRESSION QUEST is the future of gaming just because Chelsea took his virginity? And thats not a joke his cousin said she was his first GF.
            Fast forward to the end of 2014 when GG started to become really strong. What did Van Skankenburg say? “Its time for AAA producers to step up and help us!”. So much for “we’ll kill the big game developers!!!”.

            And the attacks on McGee show once again that no matter how badass your female character is (and alice is a though bitch!), once you don’t share their politics you are evil and your character is worthless.

            SJW rule No.1:

          • Of course not, they’re just using that as an excuse for their cause. And all that they really want is fame and money. If it hadn´t been games, then it would have been something else. Depression Quest is the future of Gaming? HAHA! Oh dear…Yes, she did indeed say that. Yes, they attacked McGee once again.

            So it´s simple really, as long as you´re on the “right” side. Then it´s all cool.

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            If you look at fraukeesians early videos she tried tv shows and music first but these didn’t make her famous. The skank created a streisand effect with gamers back then but it doesn’t matter since her 15 minutes are almost up. She lost a ton of support with the “please UN censor my critics” bullshit. Even Randi Harper criticised it! She’s still a fan o Sarky of course but that shows that even the “Queen” can go to far with some SOCJUS nuggets.

          • I think that was a part of that video when she talked about her past. Harper criticized Anita? Holy shit. I didn´t know that, well I´ll be damned. So they do have a limit after all. It seems like the SJW empire is falling apart, I have also started to notice that they have started to chew on each other.

          • A Real Libertarian

            Harper criticized Anita? Holy shit. I didn´t know that, well I´ll be damned.

            Analysis here.

          • That explained a lot, thanks for sharing =)

          • A Real Libertarian

            No problem.

          • Btw, it seems like Anita (and the rest) has started to chew on each other. I wonder how many backstabbing moves that we will see in the near future?

          • A Real Libertarian

            I wonder how many backstabbing moves that we will see in the near future?

            I’m going with “a lot”.

  • Motherfucking Deadpool!

    “Besides, I still don´t understand why the SJWs even bothers about games which they don´t intend to buy in the first place?”

    Who could answer this question better than Anita “if idon’t like it, it doesnt have the right to exist” Stalin herself:

    • Ah, Anita, so we meet again xD Funny, a guy on Twitter said that he had some “data” on the SJWs consumer habits (when it comes to video games). So that should be an interesting read for sure.

      • Motherfucking Deadpool!

        Also remember that before South Park made fun of them they proudly called themselves Social Justice Warriors. Peter Coffin and Movieblob for example. I even had a chick that I can’t remember who it was anymore saying “We Social Justce Warriors are gamers too” after I called them all posers.

        Now they say stuff like “we never called ourselves Social Justice Warriors thats what Gamergate created! Really huh? Well, then how could RLM who never talk about GG (and maybe not even know about it) make this joke?

        • Yes, I actually still remember that part xD You´re right, they fu**t up. In a way, it seems like they have started to understand that people now know what SJW/SJWs means. So they don´t like when we talk about it.

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            The “gamergate created the term SJW” thing is bullshit. I remember that back in the day when Chris Chan was internets greatest “villain” some of them used the phrase on themselves. That was in 2010.

            I also heard that the term was created by Social Justice people. They called the fascists under their ranks SJW to make fun of them. Must be another case of #gamergatetimetravel.

          • Hasn´t the “SJW” term existed for a very long time? Ah, Chris Chan xD I made a video about him not so long ago. I feel quite sorry for him really. Anyhow, I do recall something like that, yes. I bet, and now that you mention it. They do blame a lot of things on GG, stuff that doesn´t even have anything to do with GG whatsoever, like that lion incident, for example (Vox media).

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            It did. I think the term even existed long before the Chris Chan saga. Also as I said before: They were PROUDLY calling themselves Social Justice Warriors (see: Laurie Penny) before South Park showed them how ridiculous they really are.

            The idiots even accused Parker and Stone being GG-agents. Maybe they know of GG’s existence but they never said anything about it. If Trey and Matt would choose a side though, I’m convinced they choose GG since both like video games and hate censorship.

          • I thought as much, I even recall South Park making fun of the SJWs many, many years ago. Correct, I checked that just now. HAHA! GG-agents? For real? With no doubt, they would be out of biz if the SJW ruled everything…

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            Another funny story: I found a SJW on twitter who used Mister Poopy Butthole as his avatar.
            The guy used a fucking Rick & Morty character (the show that likes the PC Police as much as South Park) and is a Social Justice Wanker. These guys have no self awareness.

          • That´s one hell of a name right there xD You mean the cartoon show? Well, yeah, as the show makes fun of political correctness, SJWs and so on. You got that right. Most of them don’t seem to care all that much about video games either (they just love to “police around” and cause trouble). Not so long ago I remember a Twitter fight over Quite from MGSV. The SJWs hadn´t played the game, so they didn´t know that there is a reason behind Quite´s choose of clothes (it´s a silly one, but it´s there).

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            Bojack Horseman is another show that makes fun of the PC crowd and feminists.

            The most pathetic thing about the quiet ragers is that some of them are attracted to underage girls (valis, Nyberg) and the hack writer who was called out by Milo for sending a picture of his 7 year old daughter to Nicholas to “cheer him up” .

            So in the Social Justice world grown up, hot women are sexist but little girls are A-okay! Sick Fucks!

          • Bojack Horseman? I have never heard of that one before. I had to Google that name actually. That´s fu**ing disgusting man :S True that though. Pretty much…Just check some of the most famous SJWs on Twitter, they tweet out crazy shit 24/7.

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            The craziest of them all: Arthur Chu. This guy is a retard.

            Everytime the PC crowd goes crazy again its shows liek Bojack Horseman, Rick & Morty and South Park that give me hope in humanity again.

            Also I found a great article today talking about “muh female friendly movies”.
            It had this quote in it: “Not only is it flawed logic to suggest that more women onscreen will
            make a movie appeal to real women, it’s patronising. Confusing
            population with representation risks putting the debate into reverse
            gear. Remorseless cheerleading for female stories can take you back to a
            time when boys were denied dollies and pink wallpaper was compulsory
            for girls”.

            Wanna know where I found it? The Guardian. Yes the fucking guardian has an article that actually nailed it instead of yelling “muh soggy knees” the whole time.

          • Ah, the chu-chu train. To be fair, I only know of his Twitter scandals, and that he won that Jeopardy thing. Even so, I have to say that he seems to be rather insane. I think you could add Beavis and Butt-head to that list as well (Mike Judge had always been very anti-PC throughout his whole carer).

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            The only reason the antis like this loser is because he constantly sucks Chelsea’s and Anitas feet.
            The proof is that his “Who is Chu Chu?” documentary failed to be funded again and again.

          • Chu Chu tried to get a documentary funded? I must have missed out on that part. Funny that you mention that, Ken (one of our writers) wanted us to do a Google hangout thing about FF. However, I don´t know if it´s a good idea to talk about FF, since it gives them free PR.

          • Motherfucking Deadpool!

            It’s detailed on his ED page (he earned his own page after he started that retarded jesuiszoequinn hashtag). He tried it twice. I’m not sure about the second time but the first time he got 11000 of the 50000 he wanted. He thinks he is a celebrity just because he was a few times on Jeopardy. The failed funding proof otherwise.

            Its best to ignore Sarky and Joshy. Have you seen the tweet she made a few days ago begging for donations again? Of course some idiots donated but most comments were either “Fuck you” or a simple “NO!”.

            I guess it wasn’t the best idea to beg the UN to censor the internet for them. Even a journalist (I forgot his name) who supported her tweeted something like “You cannot censor free speech for your personal agenda”.

          • A Real Libertarian

            Even so, I have to say that he seems to be rather insane.


          • That´s pretty crazy yes, but is really Chu just doing all this to get some attention? Or is he truly this insane for real?

          • A Real Libertarian

            Everything says “truly this insane for real”.

          • This gave me some very unpleasent thoughts. You know the deal with McGee´s missing sister right? What if Chu-Chu has something to do with that?

          • A Real Libertarian

            Can’t be, Chu-Chu is in California, she was in Dallas.

            Plus there’s already a better suspect who’s also a crazy AntiGamer.

          • Ah, I had no idea that he lived in California. You mean that one who sent a lot of “unpleasent” messages to McGee via FB and Twitter?

          • A Real Libertarian

            You mean that one who sent a lot of “unpleasent” messages to McGee via FB and Twitter?

            That’s the better suspect.

          • Ah, I thought as much. Have you heard anything new about McGee and his sister? All I know is that the Dallas police don´t do all that much…

          • A Real Libertarian
          • Ah, great =) I must have missed out on that update. Because the last tweet that I saw from McGee, he was rather sad with how the Dallas police didn´t do all that much (they even asked McGee´s mom to go looking for her daughter herself).

  • Motherfucking Deadpool!

    My message to Social Justice Feminazis:

    When Social Justice lies in ashes

    • Wait until you see my (our) new video. I´ve been holding in my anger for almost two months now (I´m editing the video as we speak). It´s time for us (the Gaming community, retailers, publishers and devs) to kick those damn SJWs out of the games industry.

      • Raiden

        I’m all for it. . . the biggest question I have is . . . HOW? How are we going to do it?

        Furthermore a personal question. Some of Feminist SJW arguments I’ve read compare the way women are portrayed in video games to the dehumanizing way Black and Asian People were portrayed in movies 1920’s-40’s. But I have a hard time articulating exactly WHY they’re wrong in an argument. There is something wrong with the comparison but I can’t put my finger on it. Can you explain why? Help me out here.

        • I´m glad to hear it =) Well, for starter. Vote with your wallet, support alternative media, and support devs, publishers and retailers that don´t bend over for SJWs and PC bros. In short, they cheery pick stuff to make it fit into their frame (agenda). Take Game of Thrones for example, the feminists whined over all the misogyny and sexism in that show. Little did they point out that there are actually more male deaths than female deaths in the show. And a lot of men are half or full nude in the series as well. A lot of that stuff can be said about video games as well.

          Take the DOA series for example, how is the male fighters presented in DOA? Buff, handsome and sexy right? You get my point?

          • Raiden

            I’m playing devils advocate here for the sake of the argument.

            The extremist feminists would say in response to that that a) there’s not enough body type variation (they all look like stick figures) b) The Titillation vs Power Fantasy argument/double standard. When violence or sexual content is done to a woman it’s done to titillate the male audience. When it’s done to a man, it’s done to EMPOWER the male one. (Nevermind the fact I’m friends with a Bi-Sexual woman who greatly enjoys Dead Or Alive’s gratuitous Fanservice).

          • You are free to do that 😉 yep. That’s most likely what they would have said for sure. Well, they whined about FF7 Remake as well (even though the game offers body diversity). Even so, they always leave out the fact that there are many female Gamers who enjoy that also. Exactly, there are plenty of bi and lesbian female Gamers out there, but the feminists ignore this fact every single time.

          • Brian Hull

            yet they forget that of the male characters who get naked in game of thrones and video games they tend to have the same body types as well.

            feminazis are trying to create a new race that has little to do with humanity. On a basic animal level men are attracted to women based on their fitness for child bright. On a biological level women are attracted to men the same way, but they are MUCH more attracted based on what men bring to the table- social standing, physical power, confidence, effectiveness etc. Which is why it’s more erotic for women to men partially dressed to reveal their career and social standing, than it is for them to see a man completely naked.

  • Syndromic

    About fucking time the eclipse is coming for those whiny party poopers.

    • Their time is up, and they know it as well (that´s why their whining like hell over at Tumblr right now).

  • Italy GG

    About time. Now it’s up to the West devs to do the same and give the finger to SJWs/corrupt journos.

    • Correct, and we will do our very best to support developers, publishers and retailers who stand up against SJWs and corrupt journalists.

  • Who would have thought that creating what people like, and sticking up for their right to enjoy it, would pay off?

    ‘Bout time.

    • Well, that´s how the SJWs roll. It´s payback time now though.


    I’m sorry – I had A Cruel Angel’s Thesis on the mind again and this is all I could say to define the epic rekt I have seen over the past few days.

    • xD You mean Neon Genesis Evangelion right? At first I thought that it was some lyrics for a Metal song. True that 😉

      • Yep, NGE. I had been listening to it quite a bit – I love this part of it – Just evokes so much epicness, it’s unreal.

        • Awesome music that =) Word on that!

  • Deus Solaris

    I hope more people start fighting for freedom of expression I don’t want to live in 1920

  • Brian Hull

    You would think some feminist with a brain somewhere would say “wait a sec, video game consumption has EXPLODED in the last 30 years, yet rape and violent crime rates in the US have PLUMMETED.”

    we are debating the wrong thing entirely. The SJW tower of lies can only get so big before it falls over.

    • Someone should mention that to Anita, since she´s the SJW/feminist queen atm.

  • Edith Reese!
    • Ehrm…And the point would be what exactly? Madness? 😛
