  1. not sure why you brought up the whole Quantic Dream thing at the end as there was no new developments on that front(either on the investigation or Page saying anything, BTW I looked up the whole “nude image” of Page’s character in Beyond Two Souls thing, and from what I gather Page didn’t hold any ill-will towards Cage himself nor did he ever express any regret for starring in that game that I could find, rather he was trying to sue Sony over including a nude model without permission) so bringing it came off as really random.

    Also really dissapointed you telling people not to support QD just because of the actions of a few people working there(especially since even after that story broke you were still championing Detroit from what I remember, so why the sudden change now?) I don’t believe in that kind of tarring and feathering and “guilty by association” nonsense, why should other devs be punished for something only a few people did? That’s not fair in the least, so I for one WILL in fact continue supporting QD regardless of what anyone says, I think Cage is a talented person even if he does have a bad habit of putting his foot in his mouth at times. Yeah he’s said dumb things, but at least he does not seem like an outright bigot unlike far too many famous UK people(I.E. John Cleese, Terry Gilliam) so i’m sorry but I just can’t bring myself to care all that much about a few stupid things he said years ago, not when i’ve got so much other more pressing things to worry about. This feels as pointless as that Persona 5 song lyrics nonstory you tried to push. If something new does turn up around Page or Cage fair enough, but until then i’m choosing to hold my judgement.

    I highly doubt Cage is going to bring up Page again, that seems highly unlikely.
