Nexon Fires Employee Over T-Shirt

Now this is a fun one that I have been debating on whether or not to talk about because of the fact that there are so many sides, conspiracies, motives, rallies, and more behind it, but what the hell let's do it. So a voice actress for the South Korean game "Closers". Now I'm not going to lie, I'm not really sure what this game is all about, but apparently it is HUGE.

So what kind of t-shirt did this female employee wear?

 

Now this seems to be an innocent enough t-shirt and in this day and age it's probably right on the money, however there are some twists and turns behind the shirt that have all kinds of people all up in arms. There is an organization that many would call an over the top feminist group called Megalia and apparently this is one of their shirts. The sales of shirts, such as this, go into a war chest for lawsuits that they feel are worthy to fight from their perspective, so mainly cases where in their eyes a woman is being treated unfairly, so I believe this is instance is probably going to be the very next case on their docket.

As I do not know enough about South Korean culture, traditions, where they are when it comes to equal rights, I'm not going to even TRY to point fingers in any direction, however there are many people outside of South Korea that are screaming for boycotts of Nexon products because of this action. It is so easy to jump on a bandwagon and blindly follow what everyone is screaming about or basing your choices simply off the title of an article, but can we please do our research to formulate an actual opinion before we start getting the pitchforks and torches?

Personally, I think both sides are at fault. I feel like she might have worn the shirt to provoke a response, and Nexon fired her because of the backlash of people demanding that she be removed. So you decide where you stand, this is just where I'm currently standing.

Pokemon Uranium Creators Have Something to Say

 Well it was good while it lasted for those who were able to download the game, you are a bunch of lucky SOBs. For those who didn't get the download, like me, we'll just have to sit and wonder. Now of course there will be those gamers out there who will find a way to make it available again, but there will be many more who will prey on people's need to get this game.

The Match-3 Deck Building Game You've Been Waiting For

Many of you probably recall the fact that we talked briefly about this game, Primal Legends. Well it is finally time to take to the battlefield, build your deck, and conquer your foes in a match 3 battle. You will have to balance your heroes' attacks with those of troops to maximize your damage, but beware that you might take a misstep through 150 different levels. The objectives of each vary, so you are not simply trying to put your enemy away as fast as you can.

Not only will you have the 150 levels to get through, but if you really want to challenge yourself you will have the chance to take on all takers in worldwide PvP battles. Oh, and one last thing, the more you play the more likely you are to unlocking new heroes as well as evolving your heroes into something even more powerful. This game is available today for iOS and Android, and the price tag is FREE with in-app purchases.

Duel Against Master Summoners in This New Card Game

Are you looking for a new card game to play on the go? Perhaps you're looking for something sort of like a HearthStone, but having it's own twist? Well then there's a game that you should check out, and there are two things right off the top that you need to know. It is FREE. It is available TODAY on iOS.

In Summoners Fantasy you will have to control the grid/playing field utilizing your collection of cards that contain gods, demons, and other beasts. You're going to have to learn to use your cards at the right time as each card has 4 specific values all of which determine if you're going to survive, win, or be destroyed. Do you have what it takes to conquer all four of the game modes?

  • NORMAL: Players place cards and duel for ownership of the battlefield.
  • VEIL: The strength values of cards on the battlefield are hidden -- and the only way to discover their power is to place a card next to them and hope your card is strong enough.
  • ELEMENTS: The battlefield is enhanced with elemental effects that your cards can use to buff (or debuff) themselves.
  • ENGAGED: Cards automatically attack any adjacent cards -- which can trigger devastating chain reactions across the grid.

You will get to fight against the computer or battle in PvP action. You will also get to experiment and find ways to evolve the beings of your deck to make for more destruction.

Now of course since Pokemon fever is close to its peak right now people are clambering to get their hands on the game and have either crashed the site that the game is being hosted on or Nintendo/Pokemon Company has already sent out a Cease and Desist order to the creators as it is their IP.
