57. Re: So why do publishers keep doing it? Sep 17, 2014, 19:41 Mad Max RW
 
Brad Wardell, founder, President and CEO of Stardock speaks out:

I’ll hand the SJW anti-#Gamergate people one thing: They have chutzpah. Seeing individuals who have a history of abusing, ridiculing, lying and misrepresenting people complaining about gamers is…just breathtaking.

The best thing that will come out of this #gamergate thing, and this is the one thing that I think its supporters should really take some pride in is this: The free ride is over.

So many lurkers and neutral observers have been able to see how these guys operate: If you disagree with them you are either racist or sexist. There is no such thing as a principled argument as far as they’re concerned.

Remember: You’re always racist, sexist, evil no matter how absurd they have to stretch reality to make it so

#GamerGate–the free ride is over

Many more devs and studios are beginning to speak out. I guess the same people who make a living in this industry do give a fuck.

Your intellectual dishonesty knows no bounds it seems, Beamer. You are becoming so predictable it's no longer fun, just plain sad.

This is why most people have him on ignore. I was almost surprised when Prez, the most sympathetic middle of the road guy on the entire site, completely eviscerated him a couple weeks back. Beamer is living totally inside a bubble world. Any real conversation with him is impossible. Never ever EVER try to discuss anything with progressives and expect a shred of honesty out of them.

I obviously think you misread my original post, but you seem to have no interest in honest discussion about it.

The scary thing is you think your replies in this thread were honest.

What are you even talking about?

The trend around here of stereotyping anyone with an opinion that even remotely sways from the white male dominated society we live in... really just makes you look ignorant.

That's what I said. Are you... denying the fact that we live in a white male dominated society? I really don't understand what your beef is with that sentence, other than that you saw the words "white male" and your brain glazed over. Do you think "you" refers to you? Or are you feeling guilty that it might? I don't get it.

See you're trying to get us on the defensive to kill the discussion. It doesn't work with me. Try it somewhere else.

Verno... How can you have 15k posts here and not know that there is a threaded view to these discussions?

And I can safely assume you don't care about any of that since your mention of a "white male dominated society", a typical deflection term used by ignorant cowards.

This is the response I get from my OP (which was directed at exactly no one in this thread), and I'm the one bullying here.

You tried to steer the discussion to something about a "white male dominated society", which is exactly the kind of cowardly hypocrisy we're sick of. It has nothing to do with the topic except it being one of the many terms defenders of Zoe Quinn and her ilk repeatedly try and fail to throw out there as a distraction. So, are you one of those people? Are you a coward?

Now you're being disingenuous. Most people here do support equality. There's really only one person who fits your description *cough*Cutter*cough* and pretty much everyone has him on ignore. What we're sick of is hypocrisy and being attacked for daring to point it out or disagree with people whose intentions are far from good. Again, you did say "I just don't fucking care" so no explanation will matter.

I'd like to know if they had to sign a non-compete clause and how long until it expires. Minecraft never hooked me, but they are very talented guys. With that amount of money there is no limit to what they can do next.

One thing I've noticed in all of this is that the vast majority against GG are millennials. Who take whatever is dropped in front of them as the gospel truth. This is especially true of the third wave feminism, and current round of sjw's who seem to have leadership that goes off and on with the belief that those following only need to "listen and believe." Strange, we used to call those cults.

It boils down to two types: the useful idiots (typically the lonely millennials who have an urge to belong) and the truly evil types (journalists, politicians, etc.) who are pushing an agenda to stay relevant and make money by spreading hate everywhere. Social justice used to be a good thing before it became exactly as you described, a cult.

It's pretty clear you are another Beamer-lite, feeling threatened because your false ideology is being exposed in a very big way. So right now you are trying to get me on the defensive. It's an old tired tactic and I see right through your act. Here's some free advice: leave the topic now.

I'll quote you again and see if it gets through because no explanation will ever satisfy you:

An interview with Daniel Vavra: GamerGate and the gaming industry

"The funny thing is, that when you ask actual female developers like Amy Hennig (of Uncharted fame), they will tell you they never had any problems. But the people who are constantly talking about this issue are journalists and bloggers who have never actually even worked at a gaming company.

And the funniest thing is, that when you look at how many women are actually working at those magazines criticizing gaming industry for sexism, you will realize that it’s the same as in gaming companies, 10-20% at most. Polygon has 21 editors and only 5 of them are women. And when you look at their audience it’s 80% men. What a sexist magazine!"

Who actually gives a rats ass about any of this? A woman no one was listening to lied about something... Something that either no one seems willing to admit they actually care about or are going to flat out dismiss as "SJW nonsense".

Can we issue a moratorium on the use of the term "SJW"? As if striving for "social justice" or equality is something that should be frowned upon and mocked?

The trend around here of stereotyping anyone with an opinion that even remotely sways from the white male dominated society we live in... really just makes you look ignorant.

You obviously don't get it. "Social Justice" isn't the problem, it's the hypocrites who routinely hide behind it to bully those with differing opinions. They lie to get what they want and make as many people miserable in the process. Their justice is do as I say and not as I do. And I can safely assume you don't care about any of that since your mention of a "white male dominated society", a typical deflection term used by ignorant cowards.

Here's some alternatives for social justice warrior which I prefer. Let me know if they meet your approval, as if it really matters. Hypocrites. Liars. Bullies. Frauds.

This is why its so difficult to take any feminism in gaming movement seriously. I can't sympathize with the issues when you're faking them and engaging in extremely dishonest behavior. It calls into question whether theres even a problem in the first place or if that is also a product of imagination. I certainly don't see rampant sexism in my gaming circles so to speak.

These people just seem to want attention, money and people to just accept their agendas blindly. Sorry but not happening, the veil has been pulled back.

It is kind of depressing how many dishonest editorials and all of the browbeating we've been subjected to put into this kind of context.

Zoe Quinn is hiding behind a persona. She created the character of "Zoe Quinn" as the face for women's equality in video games. But it's all a lie. She's pretending to be a character living in a fantasy. Meanwhile dopey sympathizers from anonymous forum-goers to self described journalists who either believe her shit or have a part in the scam will find any way possible to deflect. They are so invested and fight to defend her honor. The reality is she's Chelsea Van Valkenburg, a spoiled girl from Toronto who tried her hand at porn, was too lazy or stupid to get a real job, and saw an opportunity to swindle naive gamers and took it. A true bastion for equality, right? Their house of cards is finally collapsing around them.

The people who keep trying to dismiss and deflect should be ashamed of themselves. We're all ashamed of you.

Apparently Zoe Quinn's "Depression Quest" game, which clearly states on her website she is donating "a portion of the proceeds" to a charity that supports depression treatment, never actually sent those donations to charity. Typical scam artist masquerading for social justice.

These frauds are cut from the same cloth as Al Sharpton.

Cutter being Cutter as usual.

Ray Rice deserves no sympathy whatsoever. If they both have anger management problems and are constantly fighting they shouldn't be together. It's only a matter of time before someone is really hurt or killed. The fact the guy is a NFL player which inherently makes him a public figure/role model he must fucking know better. And the NFL's spin job trying to cover their own asses is pathetic. They could have done some good by putting a spotlight on domestic violence and help people realize leaving is an option. Instead everybody blew it.

Their goal was never about getting more representation of females in games or changing Mario. That's irrelevant. It's all about attacking and splitting people apart. You see them in all facets of life. They are in politics, in universities, on television, writing for newspapers, and now they are in gaming. Video games are the catalyst. Their goal is to make people hate each other as much as they secretly hate themselves. Then they don't have to look at their own pathetic lives while scamming useful idiots of money to keep the agenda going forever.

Everything demonstrated so far has been really encouraging but I don't preorder games anymore. Hopefully it holds up, I would love a good survival horror game set in the Alien universe.

Exactly. The concept of a dynamic AI that stalks you through a contained location is kind of awesome.

It's a shame that dynamic AI doesn't exist. The alien's actions are almost 100% scripted, using cheap tricks like teleporting throughout the environment. It doesn't help when the game has a very linear level design and none of that exploration and survival horror like they lead us to believe.

As a $10-$20 budget title I would bite. A linear, scripted, singleplayer-only game with no mod support I can't get behind for the $50+ asking price.
