I have been wanting to write about this topic for some time and just never felt the urge to do so until the other day. This happened to go well with a video I wanted to make about a Battlefield 4 player, ANYOLJOE, that I’ve ran into several times while playing, all with the exact same results. What I am wanting to write about is swearing in a military shooter.

( I wrote about some of the problems here. ) This all happened on twitter with several YouTube people.

On Monday, the 20th, it gets reported that Microsoft paid Machinima YouTube creators to promote the XBox One. Normally that is not a big deal, but the stipulations to the deal was that they ” may not say anything negative or disparaging about Machinima, Xbox One or any of its Games in your Campaign Video”. Actual quote from the contract.

Yesterday, the 21st, it was leaked on Reddit that EA had a similar campaign as Microsoft for Battlefield 4. So this is causing a blow up even more-so that started last week.
