finaleve: “Casual” being the obvious first step. These are people who occasionally pick up a game. Maybe it’s the simple round of Tetris or maybe spend some time with their Sims family. Maybe it’s tending their farm in Farmville or some other various game on Facebook or phone. This person might have a Kinect, PS Move, or a Wii and enjoys the silly fitness games. Either way, it’s casual. “Social”...

John Epler (of BioWare): I've sad it before, and I will say it again - we are not going to give you a sexuality toggle.
It suggests that same-sex content is something that is somehow worth being protected from, and that's not a viewpoint we're ever going to support.
Don't want to initiate a romance with a character of the same gender, turn them down. Maybe they'll be a little disappointed, but that's life. If you've never experienced being turned down by someone you're romantically interested in (and suffered the disappointment, however large or small, associated with this) then you are probably Jensen Ackles, in which case may I say that I am a tremendous fan of your work?
But yes. When it comes to inclusivity versus exclusivity (and, let's be clear, suggesting that being protected from that darned same-sex content is a valid goal is heavily on the side of exclusivity), we will always fall on the side of inclusivity. Unwanted advances from someone of the same gender is, for all intents and purposes, something we view in exactly the same way as unwanted advances from someone of the opposite gender. Turn them down and move on with your life.
RayAnt1987 @ John Epler: Yes you can, and do not switch, but the dialogues that were in the Dragon Age 2
did your character or a bad or good . The neutral version, like "Sorry, buddy, I like girls. But you're my friend and I'm glad.", Was absent. We either get the location of that Anders, or its disapproval. Although life can smooth out these things with absolutely no damage to relations. This is of course if realism in the fantasy game is so important.
Do not think that I'm against gays, but to be rude chock, responding negatively to these conversations, did not want to ^_^

Schwarzwasser Fri 18 May 2012 2: 37 AM: You know what? I hate to play devil's advocate when it's clear that she's gone through a lot of hardship and stressful situations over this, but maybe her bosses were right. I've known people like her. People who can't really create anything new or contribute anything of worth, so they sit down in meetings and come up with these inane ideas about maximizing productivity by adjusting the workflow and compiling useless information in such a way that it can be accessed more easily.
Her database thing sounds like a make-work project by someone who doesn't know what they're doing, but wants to feel useful just the same. Commitment without education or vice-versa means nothing in this economy. She should've learned how to be a programmer or artist, so the company couldn't just throw her out on the street like that. I'm tired of seeing under-qualified, untalented pukes taking difficult jobs that should belong to their betters, performing poorly, getting tossed out on their ass, and then whining and filing suit later. I've worked shoulder-to-shoulder with these idiots; watched them take credit for the things I do and say. It's like they siphon the intellect right out of other people's heads. They don't have anything to add. They're a drag. A drain on resources. Welfare recipients in disguise. Their parents and their teachers have failed them, and in so doing, they have all undermined the very structure and economic security of modern society.
Somebody who tries to OD on sleeping pills just because their bosses are hard on them is a very weak, pitiful example of a human being. She should be challenging herself more. Overcoming her troubles. Finding an employer with upper-level management that appreciates the skills she does have. I have an anxiety disorder too, only the things I get anxious about are things that any normal human being would get anxious over. War, strife, natural disasters, starvation, disease and death are all around us. Try living in Uganda or Sudan for a few years. That's real hardship, unlike having your ass pampered in one of our westernized, consumerist walled gardens, filled with every luxury and every opportunity imaginable. People have told me I should see a therapist. I say fuck that. Do kids in sub-Saharan Africa get to see therapists after watching their friends and family starving, dying of disease or being raped and murdered by the militias? No. No, they don't. They don't have therapists out there. They have a hard enough time just plain living, day to day. We first-worlders are the only ones with the luxury to get diagnosed with mental illnesses and treated with pharmaceuticals for the lesser traumas we've suffered.
"Mean words" is pretty low on the list of things that bother me on a deep, personal level. In fact, when I hear someone verbally abusing me, superior or no, it goes in one ear and out the other. I do what I'm told, and I do it as well as I can. That's how you hold down a job. If you don't like it, resign and find another job. It's just that simple.
What, not politically-correct enough for you lot? You think people should get a paycheck even when they don't have a goddamned clue what they're doing? Sorry. That's what bankrupts companies.
Deeeelete @Schwarzwasser: Two sides to every coin. I was thinking along the same lines - too afraid to say it.
But I have to add.. some of these "idiots" are well-meaning and try hard to just hold a real job. I have a difficult time looking down on people who do try hard but just don't naturally have the capacity to do the work. I think there's room for some empathy, frankly.
Smorlock @Schwarzwasser: Were you high when you wrote this? I don't even know what to say. Was this trolling? It's people like you that make people like this woman try to kill themselves.
Taking a job that is above your abilities, but trying to do everything you can to be helpful anyways, does not make you a weak, pitiful human being. Nor does attempting suicide because of harassment.
Feeling like you have to declare how much better you are than people who are struggling makes you weak and pitiful. What you wrote is pretty disgusting and I really hope it's not what you actually believe.
