Forums - Gaming Discussion - THQ Nordic Went to 8Chan -_-

As expected ResetEra did not approve.

And as expected 8chan did not approve of ResetEra not approving.

If the choice was between 8chan and Resetera then THQ Nordic made the right decision.

I didn't realize how big of a deal this was at first. I didn't know what 8chan was, I think I had heard before that it was basically 4chan but worse, but I don't go on 4chan either. 

I kind of blew it off as something only internet aficionados would care about, but now i'm not so sure ... 

Apparently this site is known for a lot of racism, pedophilia, etc. ... and not in the "lele memes" kind of way.

Originally I thought they cancelled the AMA and so I believed no harm was done. But ... they actually went through with it? Why? WHY? 

This is one of the oddest things to come out of it:

I get that jokes are jokes and I doubt the person who wrote this is actually homophobic, but seriously? Who thought this was ok to write as a PR spokesperson for your company?

I'm just so disappointed with THQ Nordic's behavior the past few months. 

There's no pedophilia or child porn on 8chan. Racism, though, well, that's probably there. Also, literally everything on 8chan is in the "lele memes" kind of way.



I am currently sigless.

They can have their AMA anywhere they want. Literally very platform online has shitty content so meh.



So what was wrong with good ol' Reddit?

Honestly... i dont care, i believe the guy at THQ when he said they didnt knew of 8chan history, after all if they knew about how "controversial" 8chan (apparently is) this idea would have been an obvious PR nightmare, so i really doubt they knew.

And yeah yeah i get it they should have done some research, but the mistake is already done and they already said they regret it and are gonna do their research next time.

LOL, i dont know much about 8chan so im not gonna endorse it, but yeah i would take any other (non controversial) site over resetera.

You're probably right. But the Google blacklisting of 8chan + the fact that people I trust have been calling it a place with pedophilia convinced me. 

So basically you're saying it's only half as cancerous as I thought. Still cancerous.

It doesn't matter if they knew or not when they exhibit behavior that's just as bad as the reputation of 8chan:



Too worthless to live, too scared to die.

How is ResetEra worse than 8chan?

All I know about Resetera is that it's a giant left wing circlejerk echo chamber, where people have literally been banned for saying that they support right wing figures that the left consider to be controversial, such as Tim Soret (head of game developer Odd Tales) and Daniel Vavra (co-founder of Warhorse Studios). 

I know nothing at all about 8chan, didn't even know it was a thing before today, I'd only ever heard of 4chan.

Guess i'm a horrible person because i don't find that offensive... To me it's just a joke.
