Microsoft gave them enough money to complete the game. That was part of the deal.

That doesn't mean I can't complain about not being able to play it.

RE: Cuphead
Meanwhile, I can't play Tempest 4000 on my Windows laptop yet because Microsoft sent the developer an updated Xbox One SDK with incomplete documentation and they're having to learn how to program the Xbox One from scratch.

RE: Cuphead
^ Interesting. I was looking around to find some more specifics about why Cuphead is racist or ableist, and what I found was maybe about 10% people making fun of SJW's and about 90% this guy. I found one article about a professor Judy Harper of Arroyo State University, who had some harsh words about the game, but when I tried to look more into it, I was unable to find Arroyo State University.

I'm betting what's going on is people are just getting themselves worked up over nothing without bothering to find out if what they're getting worked up over actually exists.

Looking at the comments, this site is a parody site like theonion.com

It's fake news that isn't even really pretending to be real news.

Here is another example:

http://www.gamingfreepress.com/after-23-...i-machine/

Quote:President Bill Clinton is the only known president to have used the machine after a photo surfaced from his William J Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock Arkansas. Sometime around 2004 or 2005 the game was set to ‘Free Play’ under President George W. Bush’s Economic Stimulus Package.

^ Yes, that's the same one I found. I didn't recognize it as being satire, but a simple web search is all you need to do to find out it's a fake story.

Neither did I - I found out by reading the comments. I also googled it to make sure.

For me, I wanted to know who this Judy Harper was. I had to narrow my search with the name of the university. There are a lot of professors out there named Judy Harper, so I decided to just search for Arroyo State University, and I couldn't find it, so I figured it must be fake. Thanks for confirming that for me.

RE: Cuphead
I guess the lesson here is to fact check before you start flipping out about something.
