    TROY will be an epic exclusive for a year which has made some fear that future games will do the same.

    Well, EGS contains Spyware and is part owned by Tencent, a shady company.

    CA explicitly said that no other games will be Epic exclusive, so don't worry mate.

    Tencent owns 40% of Epic games, which has led to accusations it is spyware, usually without merit. They do, however, have a history of censoring free speech and criticism of the CCP which frankly CA should steer well clear of. It's capitalism and everyone will wring their hands and turn a blind eye, as usual.

    Probably.

    All things considered it's pretty mild, and people are making the distinction between the regime and the race. I'd actually like the criticism to become considerably sterner.

    For the moment, however that policy can change any time their overlords tell them to bow down for scraps.

    Spyware and censoring of free speech has nothing to do with capitalism.

    "Yellow Peril"

    And that was a series of racist tropes based on fear of population replacement, not a quite reasonable concern over a pretty God-awful regime.

    Putting a million people in Concentration Camps due to their ethnicity could quite reasonably be considered to be justification for a 'scare'. Frankly, it's horrifying.

    Yes silly me for caring about one million people forced into Concentration Camps for 'reeducation'. By all means though make some suppositions about my political beliefs and how much I espouse them.

    Sorry you're such a CCP fan and have decided to get outraged at people criticizing it's actions, but hey, this isn't a Tencent platform were it'd be censored in minutes. Yet.

    I didn't defend anything, I just question the "children in africa" "argument" whenever I see it.

    And not I'm not a CCP "fan", I just don't assume that every Chinese company is a CCP plot to control the world, silly me.

    You didn't say that though, you said you found "bashing" of China "creepy", a suitably vague and largely inference based term used to imply unsavoury motives in modern parlance.

    Certainly China has up until recently faced far less public criticism than Russia, when objectively despite it's many problems Russia is freer and the behaviour of it's state less reprehensible. Russia is however comparatively poor and not so important to global economics, therefore public figures feel far freer to criticise.
