Baby It’s Cold Outside

With sensitive snowflakes being completely triggered by an innocent romantic song because of the #MeToo movement, I’m embedding this song for the entire Christmas Season.

Make Gaming Great Again Productions is all about fighting censorship. This song should not be thrown into the digital book buring bonfire.

Thanks for reading and Making Games Great Again!

A response to Sonic Fox

Last night, in The Game Awards, Sonic Fox ended his speech by saying, I’m black, I’m Gay, and I’m a furry, everything a Republican hates. Instead of focusing on what unites us, games, he went on the attack of people he doesn’t like.

As a right-winged game developer, I laugh. I don’t need to be anything like that to be special. I’m just an ordinary guy. Like Brett Kavanaugh, I like beer. No, I haven’t been to any High-School Rape parties that Julie Swetnick has described.

Most of all, I am a gamer. I like video games, sitting down with a great story with interesting characters and challenging gameplay.

I just an ordinary guy, white, cis-gendered, heterosexual male, not that any of these really define my experience at all. I am everything that the Left hates. I am not afraid to be offensive and controversial. I will not be quiet and check my privilege.

Facebook is creating an ‘independent body’ to review controversial content

https://mashable.com/article/zuckerberg-note-content-governance-and-enforcement.amp

With Facebook ramping up action against controversial content on their platform, they are becoming oppressive themselves. My account was locked within 36 hours of naming a page GamerGate Trolls, Parody RPG. It was locked a second time last night after I shared an album for one of my main characters, Trolly McPatriarchy with the Indie Game Devs group.

As Smiling Mountain in Jade Empire said –

Facebook is going too far with their measures to protect their user base from ‘controversial content’. I can understand if I was putting forth videos to promote violence against people, you’d be well within your rights of locking my account, but naming your content after controversial things shouldn’t result in locking a account for security reasons.

We need to fight Zuckerberg over this egregious and draconian efforts to quell offensive content off his platform.

Thanks for watching and making games great again.

MGGA – The outrageous reason why I am doing this

I’ve been a BioWare fan for a huge part of my life. I’ve played all of their games in one form or another since they started to publish RPG video games. It was in 2002 that BioWare did something that captivated me. They released the game NeverWinter Nights, their best game in my opinion. While the adventure they created was interesting, it was the toolset that captured my imagination. The ability to sit down and create your own Dungeon and Dragon/Conan high adventure game. I spent many years learning their coding language, their conversation systems and so many other things and I created a couple of adventures. It was fun, and it motivated me to go to College to learn computer animation to learn how to make video games.

Sure, I even played Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, but I was a fan of BioWare because I loved that toolset, being able to figure out anything and create anything I imagined.

I was even more excited about BioWare when I heard their next game release was going to be Dragon Age: Origins and they made the entire game in the NeverWinter Nights Toolset and they were going to transfer all of the coding and conversations and everything else into their new toolset for that game. They promised that it may have a learning curve to use the toolset, but it was going to be a great engine to make adventures in the new world. In my opinion, this was BioWare’s first fall from grace. Their toolset was so ‘awesome’ that I have not heard of one person creating one module for that game ever.

I could see the writing on the wall, EA had bought BioWare a year prior to release, and when they heard that there would be a toolset that players could make their own adventures for free, that other players could download for free, they probably told them no, because that would ‘discourage’ people from buying EA approved DLC to make even more money.

While DA:O and Mass Effect 1 did kick ass and were probably two of the best stories BioWare told, future games just weren’t as great as them. Some people could even say their future games were shit, with endings people hated, games that failed to launch, and games people just didn’t like.

But BioWare forgot the one thing that made them extremely popular. NeverWinter Nights inspired a community of developers, who inspired a community of players. It was a game for fans to make fan fiction stories that everybody could play – it was all about for the fans to inspire them.

While BioWare has forgotten what was great about their company, their fans were invited to create their own content for other players to enjoy. This is why I am creating Make Gaming Great Again Productions, a company and community of developers who work together to make some amazing gaming experiences for players to enjoy.

Expect this website to get more robust in the future, with message boards, a discord server and so many other resources for developers.
