Adult Swim Pulls Episodes Of Shows Over "Cultural Insensitivities"

Reddit posts dating back to June have been keeping track of HBO Max seemingly missing certain Aqua Teen Hunger Force episodes –Variety and The Daily Beast have dug deeper and found further episodes of The Boondocks and The Shivering Truth have also disappeared. The current and complete list of retired episodes includes:Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Season 6’s “Shake Like Me” and “Boston”The Boondocks: Season 3’s “The Story of Jimmy Rebel”The Shivering Truth: Season 1’s “Ogled Inklings”An Adult Swim representative speaking with The Daily Beast explained that these episodes have been “permanently retired due to cultural insensitivities” with no date planned for their return to streaming. The representative added: “When Adult Swim transitions to a new platform, we determine what episodes are selected through creative and cultural filters and our standards and practices policies. Oftentimes these decisions are made in collaboration with the show’s creators.”The efforts by networks and studios to remove offensive episodes got underway this past summer, and there are many examples. In August, HBO Max added a disclaimer for Blazing Saddles with “proper social context,” and did something similar with Gone With The Wind back in June. Across June and July, many streaming services purged episodes of NBC shows, including The Office, Community, Scrubs, and 30 Rock, purged episodes featuring racist elements or portrayals.Continue Reading at GameSpot

Microsoft Flight Simulator Has An Airport At The Bottom Of A Massive Chasm

Microsoft Flight Simulator Has An Airport At The Bottom Of A Massive Chasm

There’s an entire planet to explore in Microsoft Flight Simulator, as well as a few locations where the laws of physics have been thrown out of the window. Found by ReversedWindow on Reddit, attempting to land on the Brazilian airfield of Lagoa Nova is almost impossible as the location appears to have been swallowed up by the planet.Leaving only a massive gaping chasm behind, adventurous players can attempt to touch ground at the airport but they’ll run the risk of being trapped forever in the creepy abyss. As a destination airport, you’re also able to try and take off from Lagoa Nova if the odd physics of this location decide to play nice.As for what created this digital black hole, it’s possible that it might be related to the bizarre and impossibly tall skyscrapers that were found in the game shortly after it launched.Continue Reading at GameSpot

It’s available for preorder now in three editions. While Sackboy is known for his starring role in the LittleBigPlanet series, which let players create and share their own levels, Sackboy: A Big Adventure more of a typical 3D platformer.

It also gives the character a new set of moves to use while interacting with the world, and is playable either solo or with friends in co-op mode. You can see a video of it in action below.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales Saves Can Transfer From PS4 To PS5

Spider-Man: Miles Morales Saves Can Transfer From PS4 To PS5

There has been some confusion lately about which game saves will carry over when moving from PS4 to PS5 this holiday, but Insomniac Games has cleared the air on one particular title. If you start Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS4, you will be able to keep playing where you let off on PS5.Responding to a player’s request on Twitter, Insomniac confirmed that you’ll be able to transfer your save data on PS4 to the PS5. Because the game supports cross-generational upgrading for free, it’s likely many players will do this if they can’t find a PS5 right away.Hi there, you will be able to transfer your save to PS5. We’ll share details closer to launch — Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) September 29, 2020The same is not true for Spider-Man: Remastered, which is coming to PS5 as part of the game’s Ultimate Edition.

Cyberpunk 2077 Boss Defends Final-Month Crunch

Cyberpunk 2077 Boss Defends Final-Month Crunch

Cyberpunk 2077 is coming soon, but for the final mile CD Projekt has reportedly begun a mandatory crunch period with six-day workweeks. CD Projekt Red studio head Adam Badowski has now responded to the report. His statement isn’t a denial, instead seeming to confirm and justify the push.”These last 6 weeks are our final sprint on a project we’ve all spent much of our lives on,” Badowski wrote on Twitter. “Something we care for deeply. The majority of the team understands that push, especially in light of the fact that we’ve just sent the game to cert and every day brings us visibly closer to shipping a game we want to be proud of. This is one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make, but everyone is well compensated for every extra hour they put in. And, like in recent years, 10% of the annual profit our company generates in 2020 will be split directly among the team.”Badowski’s comment that the majority of the team understands it suggests that at least some employees aren’t pleased with the requirement. He also didn’t address another piece of the report that some employees have been crunching for the last year, before this final push.Continue Reading at GameSpot
