      “Historical accuracy” also can’t really be argued either when people have already pointed out that the game in question already has historical innarcuracies and unrealistic things in it.

      Edit: follow up, apparently the company replied and PC Gamer got the facts wrong. Nonetheless, there were tons of defenders of the choice and the statement remains. “Pleasing both bigots and libs” like that is not a solution that should be encouraged, and historical accuracy also can’t be used when you can use a musical instrument to beat up people in the same game.

      More importantly, how the fuck did PC gamer get something like this so wrong to begin with? The article went unchallenged for hours before clarity was given by the company, and the damage was done to the company by that point. Good job journalists

      Edit2: NOPE. Hold on, even more into this.

      Turns out PC gamer updated their article (https://t.co/hqkATfTM3l), with quotes that contradict their(Triternion’s) official statement. So from what I can see they initially were talking about the idea, but when it blew up, did damage control. Well this is a mess of a story

      At least they ultimately did the right thing not to pander to fragile bigots?

      No, the toggle is still happening iirc, just instead of toggling by race, it’s toggling off females. Cause realism. In a game where you can beat people endlessly with a lute.

      Oh, so the decision was just to pander to fragile misogynists instead of fragile bigots?

      Ay caramba...

      As a mighty no 9 developer would say, “it’s better than nothing”

      Oh, I saw your update a while ago and then came across contradicting information and wondered if you knew. I see that you do, so I didn't really need to search for this. Ah well....might as well link the video I watched about it, anyway. *shrug*

      It didn't help the indie developers when Kotaku jumped on with the same wrong information.

      Did you...read the rest of the status? They didn’t get anything wrong, the developer just did damage control, and took advantage of the fact the article didn’t include until the edit, cited quotes to make it look like it was “shoddy journalism”. They WERE talking about including a toggle for race, and are STILL doing the toggle, just it will be for women

      Yeah, that's what I meant. When I first saw your update, I didn't check the replies. When I came back now, I did, so I know you updated it. It was a pain to find this and it turns out I didn't need to. ^^;

      The toggle gender thing is strange but I can imagine some news outlet or twitter user getting offended with a game in which men can kill women. They don't do that with Mortal Kombat but it does feel like some people are randomly picking things to be outraged about.

      Gotcha. Still that seems like an incredible stretch for an alternative reason as to why the toggle is there when we have mega popular games in which men can beat up or kill women(Smash is the example that comes to mind, but also Watch Dogs, and every traditional fighter in existence  are some other examples) I really don’t see a situation where a movement of conscious “woke” people protest the game for allowing women to fight men. From what I’ve been told the games community is pretty full of toxicity with a large community of alt righters, sexists, racists, incels, etc. so I wouldn’t be surprised if they did this toggle strictly to appease that crowd that didn’t want “wahmen in mah manly games”
