Remember when Firewatch got review-bombed on Steam because angry manbabies wanted to protect "free speech"? I just noticed Steam has added a graph of reviews over time, along with notifications of sudden surges to help detect these angry mobs.

Sorry manbabies, not sorry.

@jkb What did Firewatch do to anger these guys, again?

@Siphonay PewDiePie said "nigger" during a PUBG stream, Firewatch's devs used the DMCA to take down his videos of Firewatch as they don't want their product associated with racism. Angry manbabies ensued.

@jkb
Wait whats the deal with firewatch? I bought it in steam sale and haven't got around to playing it

@frickhaditcoming YouTuber PewDiePie used the N word during an unrelated stream, Firewatch's devs didn't want their product associated with racism so they used the DMCA to remove his videos of Firewatch, PewDiePie's fans and gamergate/alt-right types got angry and tried to hurt the sales of a BAFTA-nominated universally acclaimed game.

@jkb
Looks like if I would have waited a minute I would have had the answer without asking again. But thus makes me want to buy a 2nd copy and still forget to play it

@frickhaditcoming Nah that's fine, no worries. I strongly recommend playing that game though, especially if you can do it in one sitting (expect three to five hour for a full playthrough) as it is all about atmosphere.

@jkb
Yeah I got it and abzu because they looked pretty. I banged abzu out with a beer or 2 but then never got around to this.
