Also, I'm not so sure this was secret. If it was secret, why did they name it "Gaming Journalism Professionals?" Seems not that secret.

Maybe because Game Illuminati was taken? Oh, that's probably another conspiracy!

Right, all of those stories were op-eds. It's important to remember that. Still it's annoying that they all colluded to have the same op-ed at the same time with essentially the same headline, one which could be interpreted as tarring all gamers with a broad brush.

I hope those guys were just playing around, and weren't going to start shooting the shit out of any curious coyotes. Notice the howler has a pretty serious rifle across his knees.


I'm sure they'd take home whatever they killed. Coyote burgers, coyote liver pate, coyote mittens, etc. They're quite versatile feedstock for humans.

Really? People eat coyotes? Thats awesome. Id like to try some one day.

Pretty sure that was sarcasm from jdreyer!



Yeah, I've never heard of people eating coyote. Given that they're scavengers, I'd imagine the meat to be pretty rank.

It looks like PBS NewsHour doesn't believe in actually checking any facts before posting fake news. So who ordered the burgers & fries there?

Well, they're just reporting what a couple of people said. This is a typical he-said-she-said story with no research involved.

Can we just stop having the Op Ed section? Thanks.

Or, you could just stop clicking on it. Moth, meet flame.

I think it's much more this:
“The majority of us are certainly against hateful behaviors,” he said. “I don’t think anybody wants to see anyone else’s lives ruined.” He referred to Quinn as a “catalyst” for a larger conversation among gamers about unbiased game journalism.

And a lot less this:
Dan Golding, director of the Freeplay Independent Games Festival in Australia, offers a different view. He wrote in a post on his blog that the hate that some gamers have aimed at Quinn is the result of male gamers fearing they will become irrelevant to gaming culture.

Well, duh. Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc. always have given more money to politicians than Google, MS, Yahoo, etc. Silicon Valley doesn't really play the game very well.

Oh, come on. Look at the source. It's frigging Breitbart.
"I'm unable to dispute the content of the article, so I'll attack them for being a conservative leaning website." Do you work for Kotaku? Since 4 other sites did the same thing today with regards to Christina Sommers AEI video.

Well, take things on their merit, but also consider the source.

They seemed to have missed the old adage, 'You don't get rich by giving it away.' Why pay for a FB ripoff when they can have FB for free? Not much point to social media that isn't actually social anyway.

Obviously, to keep from mingling with the help.

That looks pretty sweet so far. I hope they've enough got money to get it right.

Who else gets a sinking felling about Star Citizen? I'm sure its going to be good. However, I doubt its going to be as good as all the people who are throwing absurd amounts of money at it hope it will be.
Right, that's the problem with hype. With as much hype as this has gotten (and those vids sure are swell) it's nearly impossible for the actual game to live up to folks' image of it.

I just can't take space battles that aren't in 3d. It's like eliminating the whole point of fighting in space. Don't limit me to one plain of movement.

Meh, it is what it is. It's a naval battle, but in space. 3D would add complexity, but I like to hop into a battle of GSB for a quick 10 minute fling every month or two.

But it comes with a "Cable for Windows".

That could mean anything!
It's a $0.23 USB cable that's grey, and has a MS certified sticker on it, that they're charging $29.99 for.

How do you think they can afford to pay $2.5B for Minecraft?

That comic bundle looks pretty cool.

The Shadowman key requires $1, even though it's pay what you want. I've been really getting into their book bundles lately. Last section was a shitload of Star Trek comics.

For $15 and DRM free, it's hard to go wrong, if the material interests you...They renew every other Wednesday.


Yeah, reading that free one (X-O Manowar) now to get a feeling for Valiant. Good art, cool story. Reminds me of a Frederick Pohl (?) short story (?) I read in my youth where some aliens land in medieval Britain, and get slaughtered by the knights there who then take their ship and fly it around the galaxy.

Who gives a crap, do we really need an update everytime they raise another 50 cents? Destiny had a $500,000,000 budget, and was still crap, so who cares how much they are spending making the game. Not only that, people arent "supporting the development of the project", they are simply buying a game in advance. If you do the math, $53 million isnt even matching what a million retail sales would be. Games that have sold far more than under a million copies havent gotten 1/10th this games publicity or 1/50th as many news updates, so wtf already?!

I was a huge Wing Commander fan, played all the games, saw the movie, an even read all the books, but I am not even going to get this anymore, thats how sick I am of this circus already.

1. We get an update when he raises another million dollars. Not fifty cents. ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

2. You're posting on this thread. By virtue of doing so, you're explicitly voting for more posts like this on Blues.

3. I forget what 3 was. (Pulling a Rick Perry)

Exposed: The Secret Mailing List of the Gaming Journalism Elite.

Why hello there!

edit: Pretty much explains why the exact same headlines of late (anti-gamer, you guys are horrible, etc, etc) show up on multiple sites at the same time...

Yeah, don't much care for Breitbart, but it was obvious when those stories all came out at once with the same theme that there was collusion. That just seems manipulative, honestly. And I really could care less about the whole Quinnspiracy.
