    Why are you posting such a highly political link? Whatever point you are trying to make just got washed away by having to read through a bunch of political crap. 

    It's my article. I've archived everything I was trying to tell you THERE. Follow it. Videos are available. 

    This one, my favorite:

    That video even tells you straight up half of the things I said in this thread. 

    I don't like IPB, but the videos are yuge. lol.

    Don't you dare call out my ignorance when it's clear you have at the very a marginal and very selective understand of it yourself.  I'm no fan of China or the CCP but the actions of Activision-Blizzard have nothing directly to do with them.  You've posted zero evidence of any of this but I'm just going to go in with blind assumption roll with it anyway.

    - First of all, calm down. I posted some. And, yes, they do have indirect impact from CCP/China. This is widely known through the invasion of stock exchanges between China, and U.S. companies. U.S. is relying too much on Chinese labor, AND customer base. Hell, search NBA and China, it will take you down the rabbit hole of NBA stars defending China as if it's a "great thing." They are speaking a lot of good things about China because NBA took so much money from China, it's not even funny. There's even a NBA store in China itself. 

    This is widely known. It's not a secret anymore. It's not even a conspiracy theory. 

    Corporations buy and sell shares to and from other companies all the time.  There's some companies that generate their entire revenue by doing JUST this.  It's got nothing to with the actions or inactions of Bobby Kotick or anyone at Activision-Blizzard when it comes to these allegations.

    - I went over this earlier, so I'm not going to repeat myself. 

    You mean they took the opportunity to set up shop in the world's largest and fastest growing market!  THOSE.... BASTARDS!!!!  Seriously pal, I would actually call into question any corporation that hasn't done this!

    - Ah, so you DO know that U.S. is relying on Chinese money. Huh. Did you know they are doing... genocide... to uiygher muslims? And concentration camps for anything they want? I hope to god you know this shit. 

    The link you post is an opinion piece about a bill that requires a 3/2 3/3 gender split for corporate boards.  It's bias and has nothing to do with with China, the CCP or anything under discussion here!

    - Yeah, it sounds good on paper, but you're missing the point. That law is mirroring the CCP's style of corporate governance. 

    First of all, if YOU are making the claim, YOUR the one with the responsibility of providing the information to support your claims.  I legitimately don't know what you mean with "It allows for sexual misconduct to go really, really low" .  I'll look it up for myself this time but I won't be doing it again.


    Ok.... So it's basically the sex offenders register for US state of California.  So how exactly does this allow for sexual misconduct to go really, really low?  What is low sexual misconduct? Why is low?  Is high sexual misconduct worse?  Can you explain ANYTHING?

    - Um... Relaxed laws? That. Yeah. That. The sex offenders get off easily. That PlayStation employee/executive? He might get fired, but he gets off easily on that charge. He can walk freely. In... fact... IN CALIFORNIA.... You can walk, waltz into a fucking Walgreens in BROAD DAYLIGHT.... AND STEAL LESS THEN $1,000 in items. No security will stop you. Oh, nono no. No. Hell nah. Hell, you can walk up to a CAR, and STEAL IT. 

    Defund the police they say. Shit's crazy. Sexual Assualt? What's the government gonna do? Nothing. Jack shit. 

    Not that any of that relay matters because, once again.  WHAT HAS ANY OF THIS GOT TO DO WITH CHINA!

    - CALIFORNIA AND UNITED STATES IS MIRRORING CHIINA. And Joe Biden is owned by.... CHINA. We are in a Socialist government right now! Yes!

    Did the executive vice-president of Activision's wife have an affair with the milkman who also banged his roommate who delivered doughnuts to the head of Riot's QA department who's son once wrote an online review of the remake of the Karate Kid starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan which was filmed on location in China?

    - Haha. Very funny. Missing the point again.

    I'm know I'm sounding like a broken record here but what's your point?  What are these connections?  Who are the people involved?  Before you start yes I know that Riot is owned by Tencent but what the fuck has that got to do with the accusations at Activision even if people at both companies communicate?

    - I just told you. In caps. 

    FUCK YOU!  The connections between Activision-Blizzard and China that you are presenting are linked with dry spaghetti at best and are non-existant at worst, and your calling me out for being blind?  Don't quote or @Crazycrabme unless you present done arguments that have substance or your at least not to lazy as to expect everyone else to fill the blanks in your own bullshit for you.

    You need to calm down. I never attacked you.

    Not gonna lie, Shagger, despite our differing opinions on this news I do appreciate what you did there as moderator. What you followed up with is a staggeringly good response, I envy you for having the time and energy to be diplomatic regarding that response.

    China has its own problems, of that nobody here has any doubt, but we don't need to use this acquisition to go on xenophobic tirades that I'd expect from the Disqus comment boards of other websites. My faith in this forum is being rapidly restored of late.

    - This is not "xenophobic." If you want to be blind, go for it. I'm trying to help people, but you guys really don't care. You guys think I'm here to stir things up. But, I'm really not trying to. If you want to stay stuck in this mindset, then I'll drop it, but I don't appreciate the "xenophobic" crap you spewed. 

    Back on topic, in response to @Kane99 I fully expected Activision-Blizzard to have the net thrown over them, but by which company and when was difficult. I was prepared for any other company such as Electronic Arts, Take-Two, THQ Nordic... anyone before Acti-Blizz. But this goes to show that just about anyone's for sale (barring Nintendo and Sony), and it's scary to think Microsoft might become the next THQ or EA: swallowing up IPs and not doing anything with them. Add to that they're a console manufacturer and are likely viewing things beyond the 'console wars,' and there may be more than just gaming companies up for grabs.

    I can see using King properties such as Candy Crush: Saga to generate revenue from the amount of money they've spent, which means Xbox on your mobile, everywhere you go. That's a huge leap in market control.

    I'm sorry you feel this way about me, and want to hate me enough for a moderator to come in here and get aggressive. I even had this person say "Fuck you!" Like... calm down.

    Where did this hate come from?

    The first thing I wanted to say is that I was very close to deleting this post entirely as it really has almost nothing to do with the topic at hand. I decided against this as I wanted to address the post because I found it as interesting as I did worrying.

    - I hate the way IPB handles quotes, so I'll just respond INSIDE quotes. I see your title as "moderator," so I'll just try to be respectful. So, I'll introduce myself, I am a "journalist." In fact, I could write for VGR if I so wanted to. 

    With all due respect, I think you dropped your tin foil hat, and you're talking nonsense. And, to be frank, this looks a little concerning from a perspective analysis of prejudice and one's understanding of other cultures. Sexual harrasment and discrimination may happen in China, but it isn't something indigenous to the Chinese anymore than it is anywhere else, including America. So you attributing Activision-Blizzard's "issues" to a rather vague association with a single Chinese company sets of alarm bells to me about you. Your claim doesn't have any evidence to back it up and makes no sense.

    - I assure you, THIS is not tin-foil. Let me ask you a question: Why do you think companies are going woke where you're located? Why do you think that Twitter is a cesspool of garbage people? Why do you think you're canceled? Why do you think you get censored on social media? I will tell you: Most companies today. RIGHT NOW... are woke. Its not even an accident, that companies today are doing these... sexual... misconduct.. Activision is just one of many companies hit by sexual assault allegations. Ubisoft got hit by this. PlayStation got hit by this albeit in a small way, but they got hit. Riot Games' toxic workplace is because they are directly owned by ...China. 

    Why? Because in ORDER to do business in China. In order to BE a business in China. You NEED to have a CCP member inside your company. If you don't follow this rule, they will tarnish your reputation as a person, as a brand, AND AS A BUSINESS. I will go into depth about this later, because this is a recurring theme of the entire reply. 

    First, both Activision and Blizzard have been in business longer that Tencent and the allegations stretch well before any alleged Chinese influence was imparted to them be it from Tencent or otherwise. How the hell could Tencent be responsible for these problems at Activision-Blizzard before the company even existed?

    - I know that. Activision is the world's first Video Game publisher, before the term was even coined. Literally the world's first game publisher. 

    Activision released Call of Duty Online in China, handled by... Tencent. Following that, Call of Duty Mobile was released, handled by Tencent. People complain that they are needlessly banned from using either product... OUTSIDE of China. I'll explain why in a minute. This is part of the censorship I explained earlier. 

    Secondly, lots of American companies have offices and holdings in various countries around the world to run local interests and markets. Why is Activision-Blizzard's holdings in China a sign of "subversion" when thier holdings in France, Holland, the UK, Australia, Singapore, The Netherlands, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, Ireland, Canada, Korea and the list goes on not suspect at all (Source of that information)? This is just how huge companies like Activision-Blizzard operate. For your own sake, come back to reality.

    - Yes, I understand that they run operations outside of U.S., however, you're missing the point. China is selling propaganda INSIDE China, AND censoring YOUR games... to appease the CCP's censors. You see this in films already. Why do you think films are trash? I have a video for you if you're interested:

    Damn. That embed is yuge. Sorry, but yeah... laowhy86 and Serpentza both traveled to China. I trust their experiences in China, they even have TONS of footage in China. Excellent channels. 

    Thirdly, just because a Chinese company has a stake in an American business, doesn't change the management structure or how the business is run and organised. Control like that is only handed over when a shareholder (or group of shareholders) attain majority control. Tencent owns less than 5% of Activision, trust me, they get NO say in how the business is run day to day, especially on US based infrastructure. Tencent also own around 4% of Tesla, so why hasn't this so called "influence" created similar problems with them? Face it, you're talking a load of shit here.

    - Yeah, actually... yeah. Their stake in American businesses damage the quality of their products to appease the CCP government, yes. 

    I'll link you to the list of gaming companies that are owned by China: https://www.pcgamer.com/every-game-company-that-tencent-has-invested-in/

    Riot Games is 100 Percent. Epic Games is 2nd best, with 40 percent. And yes, Activision is 5 percent, but issue is as I stated before: 1. Call of Duty Online (mentioned), 2. Call of Duty Mobile (mentioned), 3. Activision Shanghai (mentioned, but the thing is, THIS IS directly impacting INSIDE China. As I said before: You. Need. A. CCP. Member. inside. the company.), 4. Ties with Riot Games, which we've just established that they are 100 percent owned, operated by China.

    As for Tesla? Tesla just launched a company and factory in China. Once again: Tesla, has to have a CCP member in the company IN China. No if or buts. If you go outside of that rule, they trash your brand. It's happened already, Elon Musk is bowing, and taking a knee to the CCP. 

    Next, yes, there is a law is says California that states that a certain number of board members need to be woman. An American law that has absolutely nothing to do with China, or any other country for that matter. And that law is no bad thing either. It's there to try and kill off the kind of toxic, discriminatory culture that has plagued American businesses for decades. The very same culture that landed Activision-Blizzard in such hot water in the first place. All that you have proven there is that the system, despite being in place for the right reasons, maybe doesn't work that well. Either way, it clearly has nothing to do with China, nor does it tie into this weird subversion theory, or anything to do anything else in this thread frankly...

    - Most politicians in California, and United States are corrupt. They ARE working with the CCP. Hell, General Milley even called CCP to warn them they won't attack China! I've been following this story for as long as the pandemic started. Because it AFFECTS ME. I moved from California in 2018!

    And that brings me neatly to my final point, and I am going back to mod speak to some extent here. Please present evidence to back up your points that is actually relevant to the topic. Like I said, very little of what you have posted here has anything at all to do with the topic at hand anyway, but how is bringing up a (now former) PlayStation executive attempting to groom a minor got anything at all to do with Xbox buying Activision-Blizzard? Or the ridiculous claim that China is in some way responsible for Activision-Blizzard's "frat boy" work culture that has got them in trouble? Or this alleged subversion that, frankly, sounds like the sort of thing American, right-wing conspiracy nuts would print about the Soviets back in the 70's and 80's? None of these things make any sense on thier own, much less together! If you want to discuss this "subversion" or what happened with regards to that PlayStation executive, reply to or create new threads for them in the appropriate sub-forum, don't attempt to derail this or any other topic again.

    Here is my proof: https://carlosx360.medium.com/introducing-myself-carlosx360-6de80905d34e (Links are in the article itself. No, it's not my site, it's just a medium post, not my website, which is what I was afraid of linking.)

    I was not trying to derail the thread, I was trying to wake people up from the Corporate America problems. It's related to the thread at hand. Look at the press release, even. Microsoft Gaming is using "inclusivity" messaging to speak to the government of California. Read it. Connect the dots. The "him/her" detonation is right there. front and center. Microsoft is HQ'ed in Seattle, Activision is in California.

     In some circles, that's already happened. Bobby "I'll have you killed" Kotick still remains in charge, and even if his six month contract comes to an end, he'll leave with a god-almighty severance package after years of abusive and neglectful behaviour inflicted upon his staff.

    Capital. Good riddance, though I suspect any tears caused by our jeering will be wiped away with the millions of dollars he'll retire on, unless he finds 'work' elsewhere. 🤢

    That's not going to bother him, the fucking leech will be sure to give himself a massive going away present.

    You 3 need to understand that this whole controversy is a foreign country subverting U.S. Yes, the allegations are horrendous, but it could've been avoided if they hadn't taken money from a certain country, which is China... none of this would've happened. 

    1. Activision has relationships with Tencent. Likewise, THEY bought shares in Activision. 

    2. Activision created a Shanghai division. 

    3. California law requires you to have an "inclusive" executive. Here's the link if you don't believe me. This is akin to having a CCP member inside companies that operates in China..

    4. There's a law called "Senate Bill 145" in California. It allows for sexual misconduct to go really, really low. I'm not going to say it out loud here. You're gonna have to find it yourself. This is why the PlayStation executive was fired. 

    5. Some Activision employees have ties with Riot Games.

    Connect the dots and you'll realize that all this stuff is because people aren't paying attention to what's going on. 

    Microsoft can easily clean all of it up. I wrote an article about this recently, but I won't link here because I don't know how @DC feels about it.

    Anyway, next time... don't react to stupid controversy like this, its OBVIOUS that this is subversion.

    Discord is basically a platform centred around gaming that allows people to group up and chat through both text and voice. Users can join and create servers on the discord platform for friends, members of their community or the public to join.


    More details on their website.

    It's been spreading to other niches, too. Not just gaming.

    However, Discord kills forums that it's based around. If you want chat on the forums, just ask for it. We actually want you ON the board, rather than going to another platform and whatever.

    (I own a few websites, so trust me when I say that. I own the #1 highest ranking Call of Duty forum that ain't owned by Activision, for example.)

    Hi @Carlos X, how are you doing? Been a while since I've seen you on the forum. What games are you most looking forward to in 2020?

    I'm doing good, chillin'. I'm looking forward to PS5, and the launch titles. I will either buy it at launch or wait at least a month or so to see reliability of the console before purchasing. I love PlayStation, but I'll wait a little bit. I did it with PS4, I'll do it again.

    Besides that, though? Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Doom Eternal, and some others I may be forgetting from the top of my head.

  8. Yeah, the editor sucks on IPB, I can't separate the first two videos because the damn thing is like a Windows editor. At first it wouldn't resolve the embeds. UGH. Annoying.

    Oh well, at least I got them working. You can ignore my old notification, sorry about that, @DC.

  9. I am currently trying to prepare for the Next Generation PlayStation console, so I started up this YouTube Channel for not just the console, but also a website I am ready to launch as soon as Sony unveils the PS5.

    Even if PlayStation isn't your thang, I do have alternate channels - CarlosX360 is my main channel, and my stream channel is CarlosX720.

    This thread is about my console livestreams. If you want mobile livestreams, go into my main channel (CarlosX360) and watch them. I will post them in a separate thread if possible.

    Right now, I'll cherry pick 3. Come Modern Warfare's launch day or soon after, I'll post more. Right now though, this will have to do for now...

    And now, for the finale: My Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta Montage!

    Thanks for viewing my thread! Have a nice day!

    Or get them on Steam. Bunch of Sega games there.

    I can use steam, just not a fan of playing Sega or 2D on PC. I'd need to buy a fully compatible 6-button controller (like the retro-bit/8bitdo controllers).

    I still have both the series 1 Sega and the series 2 Sega. They work great and I love playing them.

    My father sold them when I was a kid, so eh.

    It's also not that expensive or difficult finding a second hand model 1 or model 2 Genesis.

    Don't have my old games, so eh.

    You could just get an emulator online and download most of the games - and it's free by the way so you can definitely afford it.

    Most emulators I find on the internet, especially on my phone... it's usually pre-loaded with viruses or malware.

    Where is the traffic coming from?  I know to pay for a list from richer nations is somewhat expensive.   Did you get all those people for free?  

    The domain name is very, very short. People are more likely to remember branded domain names that are very, very... Very short. I wish I'd thought of VGR first, or I would have bought it before the guy. If you have a very catchy name, too... that helps, too. But a short name almost, always, always works. Especially when we're in the mobile age, where people need to be reminded of where to go.

    People look at the articles, and like the articles, sometimes forget to click the like button or the connect to facebook likes box which in turn likes the page. And you have to make it prominent. Otherwise all those traffic won't do anything.

    However, the short domain helps, and if you secure the vanity names fast to make it consistent, that's how people find those pages better.

  13. Hello, everyone, my name is Carlos, and I have arrived to VGR!

    Obviously, I love video games. I like computers, art, and women. Yes, I like ladies. 😉

    I have a YouTube channel, I livestream sometimes, and I'm a writer. I have my own website, but I'm not here to promote it - unless the owner says its okay or whatever. I'm being nice as possible.

    Anyhow, I'm here to say hi, and to introduce myself!
