    Kinda late for this to release for the Switch at this point... not to burst anyone's bubble though ;)

    It's all about opinions, and it looks like the situation that happened ultimately became a divider for how to handle it.

    Playtonics removes the voice actor, gets hate for it.

    Gears for Breakfast keeps the voice actor, gets hate for it.

    Looks like there's no winning, just like there's no winning the argument that rapidly developed right now.

    That's interesting, because I distinctly remember a wave of refund requests immediately following the decision before the game was even out on store shelves, which leads me to believe that people cared a little bit more than you give them credit for. You can be okay with a 1984-style world where your political alignment or opinions somehow influence your career despite not having anything to do with the job, I'm not. PT is free to engage in such practices, I'm free to condemn them, that's all there is to it, I don't know why this conversation is still on-going.

    From who though. There is going to be hate regardless.

    Playtonics and Gears are getting hate but from different people.
    The people that are hating on Playtonics are not the same people hating Gears.
    And vice versa.

    This is like any other thing. Musicians get hate for changing music styles. Its not like haters are being inconsistent and hate no matter what the person does. Typically. But their are some out there that do. But they are minor.

    So have you heard? They say Yooka Laylee is releasing on the Nintendo Switch.

    What? You say that is the actual topic of this thread?
    Hell, I didn't realize!

    Playtonic just keeps on digging. I mean how the hell do they wake up one day and decide to release the game on the Switch when they canned it on the Wii U, after it was basically promised for a Wii U release. Not to mention the game is ass.
    I mean what are the spec differences between the WiiU and Switch? More ram? Yet their excuse for no Wii U version was technical limitations.

    I really liked this on my PS4 playthrough, was a fun game. I hope it turns a profit and they can make a sequel.

    That's exactly it, you've got it. That's why there's no winning, unfortunately, and why any argument about this goes no where.

    Switch is also very unlikely to be the failure sales-wise that WiiU was.

    There was not really a particular good reason to release on the Wii U when the manufacturer and company themselves were on the brink of abandoning it at the point they thought about releasing it on there.

    I actually wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo themselves secretly told developers "hold on, we've got something better in the works."

    A gentle reminder to stay on topic. Other debates can go to relevant threads and/or PM if you must.

    It all depends on which side you fall on, the people who actually play the games or the people who never had any intention of playing games and just looking for stuff to complain about (ie: sjw's and liberal media)
    Fact of the matter is the actual consumers just don't care, though they did get angry with playtonics (which may or may not have affected sales? with all the mixed to negative reviews its hard to tell)
    The consumer would rather just keep politics out of the games and not have the dev's even bother with it, its probably why wolfenstien II was such a sales flop

    I was gonna get it, but then after the JonTron's controversy and them removing Jon's voice from the game, I gave up on getting this game, regarding where it gets its inspiration from.
