God of War Ragnarok: a little too much excitement on the side of the players
Since its announcement, God of War: Ragnarok is one of the most anticipated upcoming video games. Inevitably, since the critics and the public acclaimed the first episode in 2018: JV gave it 20/20. A choice shared on the whole since we see that on metacritic the press rated it 94/100 while the public gave it an average rating of 9.1/10. In any case, some players are waiting impatiently for it. Even too impatiently. Witness the recent messages sent privately to Estelle Tigani, cinematic producer at the house of Santa Monica :
Pro tip: sending me dick pics asking for the God of War Ragnarok release date will not, in fact, get me to reveal the release date.
To the people who are doing so, when did that ever work for you?! pic.twitter.com/U6Ea1Emi3X

Pro Tip: Sending me pictures of penises asking me when God of War Ragnarok will actually get me told the release date. For those who use this way, when did it work?
Of the dick picks sent yesterday following strong rumours: Sony would have planned to reveal the release date of the game as well as its different editions in a State of Play on June 30. Except that the event would have been postponed, visibly causing the frustration of the players.
When Phil Spencer thanks Cory Barlog
Behaviors that do not go unnoticed by Cory Barlog, director of the game. After being surprised by the attitude of certain players against Ron Gilbert for the privileged artistic direction for Return to the Monkey Island, it reacts in two stages. First of all, he explains that it is necessary “show respect to any employee in the video game industry, who is working hard to produce something you like“. In the process, he explains to a user that no one should be blamed:
the answer is not to find someone to blame or focus hate on. maybe just pay it forward and treat the people that make the things we love with some human decency and respect.
this is not a battle, we are not at war. we are just trying to make + enjoy things together.❤️ https://t.co/o1X3WBQyKF

The answer is not to find someone to blame or hate. Maybe it’s just to make the world a better place and to treat people who do the things you love with respect and decency.
A response welcomed by Phil Spencer, the boss of Xbox:
So well said Cory. Can’t wait to enjoy GoW when it comes out. And thanks to you and the team for the amazing work that goes into creating things we love. Thank you.
