Greetings NewGen. How have you been? I understand how Outlast and Whistler Blower are connected to each other. But I don't understand at all how is Outlast 2 connected to the two previous parts? Can you please explain to me how is Outlast 2 connected to the other two? Thank you.
There's a free six-issue comic book titled Outlast: The Murkoff Account that's meant to bridge the gap between these two games. You can look it up here. We've listed this information on the game's wiki page and have separate articles relating to the comic. For additional references, please refer to wiki articles of your interest.
A few days ago I edited the line about Miles' vehicle. It's a 1997+ Jeep Wrangler TJ, not the older YJ. This can be easily confirmed by checking Wikipedia, but you reverted my edit. May I ask why did you do that?
A character stating that someone's dead from their perspective without giving any insight on the matter is not a source, as we've seen that conventional death does not apply here, given that Billy came back to life out of no where, Red Barrels removing their Tweet regarding Miles' status and the fact that no one ever considers that Marion might be lying about Miles' status. We've discussed this dozens of times, it's even mentioned under his 'Fate' section of the article, I'd appreciate you reading it before bombarding me with this question for the 100th time, we do provide reasons and sources for our edits.
Hello, we don't really need to go ahead and use redundancy just to make sure that the point gets across. Your edit summary states that it is more accurate and commonly used language. It's not—outside of “gender-support groups,” the idea of assigned-whatever-at-birth is not well known, and generally not taken entirely seriously either. We're not trying to be a part of this debate, because it's not the discussion we are aiming to entice as of now. Because of this issue we have already changed our infoboxes to appeal to sex instead of gender, and yet we have insisted on portraying Val's identity, which includes but isn't limited to gender. The reason for that is not social, it's because someone is missing a couple of organs and we feel like it's probably a good idea to weigh in on that.
However, it is mostly a place of speculation—which is prohibited on article pages by our rules and guidelines—but the issue has been such a place of trouble for us that we went ahead and included the theory. Now, understandably, when it comes to the wording, we're not trying to discuss the terminology in-depth, only state things as simply as possible and with more common expressions.
TL;DR: That terminology isn't common, nor “accurate” by quantifiable standards. We are not social advocates, only encyclopædians.
As someone actively involved in my communities I know what terminology is common and current among trans communities. If you're going to include the "theory" at all and try to use trans language I see no reason to not keep it up to date. Using the language that we use has nothing to do with being a social advocate.
Well those are the key-words, common and current among trans communities. We're not denying the usage of the words or their existence or whatever really, but we would rather keep it that way for now. If, eventually there is a substantial ground for change, we will make sure to do that.
Apologies for the spam on your wall. Also, apologies for my pointless edits, which are mostly to do with Outlast rather than its sequel. The reason why I edit Outlast 1-related stuff is due to the fact that I haven't really played Outlast 2. I played the first quarter, but haven't had the time to play the rest. Is it worth continuing?
You read something on an online article and that made you rethink the whole section because someone that's not even a handicapped state on behalf of other people that a descriptive term is insulting? For the record, there are people who think using terms like homo or gay instead of homosexual is an offensive term.
You keep posting questions to stuff that we have no answers to, it is just best to wait it out to see what happens next and to no obsess over the littlest of details, cause there's nothing relevant hiding behind them.
I know we've kinda gone through this, but does Steve's colleague deserve to be listed as a minor character? He's somewhat prominent in the game's opening.
Secondly (and no, I've never really asked you this directly), can I add you on Steam? I mean, you seem like a cool enough guy and we could play some TF2 or L4D or discuss Outlast-related stuff there. Far easier that way, too.
Lastly (and I don't mean to sound narcissistic here), but have my edits improved? I noticed that they're not getting reverted as often as they used to.
Side note, do you think hints of the original sexual assault plot line still appear in the final game? For example, the writing on the wall in the Male Ward clearly refers to Trager's torture methods, but could possibly also double as a hint at the original plot line.
Is Loutermilch's nursery tune a reference to Blake witnessing the signs of Jessica's abuse (there's a father up above), her subsequent death (and he's looking down in love), and the teacher's cover up (so be careful little eyes what you see)?
