Well Ambrose has been confirmed to be leaving in April.
Also Hideo Itami is looking likely to be off as well (changed his Twitter back to KENTA and a lot of WWE stars have wished him well).
Yeah, the two main shows not being on the network is a pain in the arse. The UK it's all tied up in super expensive Sky Sports satellite tv service, so would cost a fortune to watch the two shows. I just do the ppv's and catch the rest on news sites/youtube these days.
With Lars Sullivan they didn't really have a choice, he apparently had a panic attack last week, then no showed RAW but also didn't tell anyone at the company and has been awol since.
On the plus side, I'm really excited they flipped things around with Balor and Strowman, they tried to slot Strowman in the old Reigns spot and it wasn't working, so he's back to doing what he does best, tip cars over and destroy stuff. Lesnars better matches this run have all been against smaller guys anyway (Bryan, Styles, Joe).
One other thing, looks like Kevin Owens is almost ready to return, and going off the pics he's lost a LOT of weight.
It isn't anything new at all. The same thing has happened in sports for decades.
Sports, movies, TV shows, anything with a wide audience.
The anonymity of the internet is a scourge on civil discourse. 99% of the people spouting off online wouldn't dream of doing it to someone face to face.
Things like this are becoming more 'problematic' because the consequences of things like online bullying, targeting people on social media is a relatively new thing. When people can be racist, homophobic or whatever else, with no real comebacks, bullying people to the brink of mental health issues and literal suicide, then of course companies are going to respond by trying to cut this type of stuff off.
I grew up in an era before Twitter or Facebook, it was nothing like it is today. If you said something nasty to someone you had to face the consequences. Like El Shmiablo said, it's about common decency.
@black-cell said in The Naughty Dog Agenda:
Its kinda sad developers has to spend budget on SJW and femenist elements rather than spent budget on good level design and gameplay.
I don't even know where to start on this comment. What exactly do you mean by 'spending money on SJW' because they're including female characters or gay characters?
Do strong female leads or support characters bother you? If so why?
Do gay characters bother you? If so why?
Do you have any examples of where the inclusion of either have had a detrimental effect on the level design or gameplay? Some specific game titles would be nice if you do.

If it's just that you don't like someone, please can everyone please refrain from 'calling them out' by name in a forum thread title.
I get your point Snowcone_Guy.
I do think looking on your phone at Gaf or wherever right as the stream is starting, last min can spoil the surprise of things. Things have accidentally leaked on say, the PSN store as was the case with Hitman which can't be helped, if I was streaming I'd be reluctant to pass that info on.
Things like God of War which had art leaked months in advance, I'm ok with as the longer out the rumor is it can build some excitement for what will be shown.
It's definitely something to think about with regards to the reaction streams.
You could always play a different game in between and give FFT a break. Sometimes coming back to it at a different time can work wonders.
Personally for a SJRPG I would have suggested starting off with Vandal Hearts (not sure if that's available on PSN, I know it isn't in the EU region sadly).
Vagrant Story would probably be a good game to play in breaks (and definitely something you should play at some point regardless).
