https://www.businessinsider.com/aft...tions-ea-cuts-ties-chris-avellone-2020-6?op=1 This is the link, though I'm sure all you nerds already knew about it. I know I haven't been active on this server for the better part of a year now, which is quite an understatement considering my last post on a forum was over a year ago, but my thoughts wouldn't fit in a status post. Chris Avellone has been accused of sexual assault by several women. My first reaction, unfortunately, was to defend him, but the allegations were too credible to ignore. It isn't an exaggeration to say that Chris was a hero of mine. I have always considered the DLC of Fallout New Vegas to be a gold standard in DLC, thanks largely to his writing. The Fallout games that he contributed to shaped my passion and interests. No work has had a greater influence on my life than Fallout. Two years ago, when I had to make a presentation about an inspiration of mine for Spanish class, I chose him. There's a lot of debate about whether the art can be separated from the artist. Many would say that this shouldn't have an effect on my enjoyment of Old World Blues but this has undoubtedly tainted his work. I know a fair amount of you aren't surprised; Chris always had a reputation for being greasy and creepy around women, but I never really believed it. Part of me wishes I could just be blue-pilled of all this but the women he assaulted deserve justice, and the power imbalance within the gaming industry needs to be addressed. Anyway, that's all.
