I propose that we create a new rule. If a comment thread has an article related to GamerGate in it, we talk about something else like hockey or TV shows we're watching.

Anyone been watching Gotham? What do you think so far? I feel like it has a lot of potential but it's not one of those shows I eagerly wait to watch each week. I've never really been able to get excited about procedurals. For example once Person of Interest became more about the overall plot and less about the number of the week, I liked it a lot more.

Hey, not a bad idea. Let me one up you:

If a comment thread has an article related to GamerGate in it, we talk about Star Citizen. Yes? Yes? YES!

Is it going to be the greatest game this decade, or the greatest game ever?

Of course the assholes making Hatred are fascists. Typical extreme-right, tiny-dicked, powerless losers with delusions of grandeur wanting to take out their frustrations on the world around them, never once realizing they're the entire source of their own problems.

On the plus side, I expect these guys to be out of business soon. This game looks like it cost some cash to make, and I don't expect it to sell much. Honestly, who's the market for stuff like this? It seems very niche, which means not a lot of sales.

Market game players that like to kill things. Seems like there are plenty of those.

Calling them Nazi's is totally backwards, this is anti-system. Nazi's were all about system, their system, sort of like the ole USA is today. This is anti-society, nothing nazi about it at all imo.

Yeah, but I don't think that gamers like to kill just for killing. When you're killing Nazis in Wolfenstein (one of the more recent bloody games) you're doing it to save the world, you are fighting against soldiers with weapons who are threatening to kill millions of people. It's justified. You're not killing unarmed innocents.

Most soldiers don't join the military because enjoy the killing, they join for camaraderie, a paying job, technical education, to travel the world, respect, etc. There are actually soldiers that enjoy killing, but they are very few in number.

To be honest it seems like you are going down the road to "it's more than pixels", it is all just fantasy. Playing a serial killer or whatever, it is fantasy. Literature and movies haven't struggled in these spaces in a long time now.

No, I'm pointing out that there's not really a market for this kind of stuff. The kind of people that it appeals to a few in number, since most people don't enjoy killing for the pure pleasure of killing. Nihilistic media doesn't sell well. Take the torture-porn movie Chaos. It cost $1M to make, but only grossed $10K domestically. I suspect this game will be much the same. It will cost more to make than they'll get back selling it, although with the exchange rate of the zloty to the euro, maybe they'll break even.

Zuckerberg sues lawyers who represented man claiming half of Facebook.

Is that a thing? Can you sue the lawyers for representing a client who is lying, even if you suspect it? That such suits could be brought would seem to undermine a lawyers ability to zealously represent his or her client.

I'm probably in the minority here, but this is worrisome to me. It seems to be beginning to set a precedent for convicting someone for what they might do, and not what they actually do. And no, I'm not a manga fan and do not possess such images myself.

You're not the only one that got alarm bells. I think this is a pretty slippery slope, even if the guy that got convicted sounds pretty creepy. The main reason ch1ld pr0n is illegal is the horrific trauma endured by the children that were forced to make it. When you take out that ingredient you're getting into first amendment territory, and while such illustrations would be disgusting and abhorrent, we've generally allowed disgusting and abhorrent to be protected by the first amendment (although this case was in the UK). What next, novelists that write any passages like that will go to jail? If someone was underage their first time, and they tell that story to someone, they can be arrested?

I played around with this over the weekend, but beyond building ships and stations, I didn't see that much to do. Gonna wait until this is out of early access, see if they put some goal-oriented stuff in there.

'Hatred' Game - Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if they are linked to neo nazi's in Poland and the hooligan groups situated in Kiev-Ukraine. But they may not be, I don't know, that game doesn't seem that interesting anyways, but certainly controversial (reminds me of Manhunt).



If you were killing stereotypical racial caricatures, I might link them with Neo Nazis, but the game seems pretty equal opportunity in it's victims. It's just nihilistic.

It will be interesting to see what she does next. I'm so impressed with At The Gates, which is Jon Shafer's project since leaving Firaxis. And Ken Levine sounds like he's got some great ideas for his next project. So, when top people leave big studios, I think they have a lot of potential to accomplish something new and different.

She's just another suit that gets extra attention due to her looks. /snore

I've talked to people that worked with her. All of them said she is a legit developer and knows her shit(not just a suit). Her good looks do get her attention, but many people don't take her seriously because of them.

Yeah, that can be quite the double edged sword. People assume you got your job because you look good, therefore you can't do your job.

Still EXTREMELY worried about the upcoming Dice version. If BF4 is any indication, it's something I won't be buying. Which will suck.

I miss games like the original Tempest arcade. Extremely challenging, no politics or ethics involved and no attempt to be anything like reality, yet with beautiful and simple vector graphics. It would be nice to see a trend / return to those types of games.

Here you go.

Only two years? Amateurs. When you commit online abuse in the USA, we charge you with 50 years in prison and $1M fine. And then you kill yourself.

Can we just agree that payment of any kind for good reviews and hating/harassing/discriminating against people for any reason are all bad so we can move on to something else now?

If we did that, we wouldn't be able to have 100 comment long threads anymore.

Wouldn't that make you sad?
