In other news, Leigh Alexander of "I hate gamers fame" "gamers are dead" and "fuck you asshole" is now running like mad deleting all of her bigoted tweets.

Well, take things on their merit, but also consider the source.
You realize that anyone can write for breitbart no matter their political persuasion right? As long as it's verifiable, sourced and coherent. Should I start posting "look at the source" every time blue posts an article from Huffpo, abc, msnbc, or cnn? Well actually I should, especially now that we know we're dealing with a journolist from gaming we should also include kotaku, polygon, ars, and half a dozen other sites. They've confirmed that the list exists, they confirmed that they post on it, some of the emails themselves show exactly how they're attempting to collude, and which way they want to push the narrative. It's journolist for gaming.

Out of journolist itself, people were screaming "look at the source..." "but...it's not really like that" and "how do we defend our collusion..." and screaming right to the end. Until they were fired for ethical violations with regards to publication.

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.

wouldnt be surprised if this whole gamergate bullshit gave birth to a new crop of indie shock game devs
If they can throw off the collusion that's fine by me. After all, after Christina Sommers did her video the other day they fired off 4 nearly identical articles all starting with "conservative" because she works for AEI...never mind that she's a democrat.

Does anyone actually care? I suppose if I thought gaming journalism was actual journalism or for reals I might.
Well...yes. After all, the same people crying "the death of gamers" are the same ones pissing in your soup and telling you it's an improved flavor. They're also the ones crying over content in the games you're playing, and trying to shape the media to their view--not the view of what gamers want.

Reminds me of JournoList. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JournoList
That's because it is the same as journolist. Collusion, corruption, arrogance, deciding what stories to write and in what tone. What stories not to cover? Exactly the same...but don't worry guys...#gamergate isn't about corruption and collusion they keep telling us.

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.

What happens with steam account once you die though? Can family take it over? Or do you have to plan ahead and make sure your passwords are accessible to whoever is left after you? And how would you facilitate that without it being a huge security risk?

This stuff doesn't worry me much yet, but I feel like it is stuff that is important to know. With more and more of our lives being digital.....
Good question, my will states that ownership of my steam library transfers to my sister and best friend. Should they both want it the number of games will be randomly divided between both parties. I'm sure that someone else has included this in their own will already and it'll probably hit the courts before I die.

Case law is going to catch up shatteringly fast to this without a question. It'll follow that consumer and federal laws(or state laws) will catch up fast once it starts hitting the courts as well.

My favorite part of their letter is:

"No group of authors as diverse or prominent as this has ever come together before in support of a single cause."

Yea... a cause that's about how much money you're making... real noble "cause". hehe.
Yeah that's pretty much what I thought, and they wonder why ebook piracy is through the roof. Gee, it might have something to do with you charging the same price for a non-physical copy as you do for a digital copy.

If #gamergate is just about journalism, why is Anita even factoring in? Why are people addressing her at all? She's not a journalist.
Journalists quote her, she writes opinion pieces and attempts to claim that they're journalistic in value. Something you may have forgotten, is media using ideas of another in order to bolster their own story make them included within it.

There's outrage now over something more minor, and the outrage is rarely very far from words about some woman's sexuality, which is why people argue. The anti gamers-gate aren't people that say "Video game 'journalism' is without problems" it's people saying "seriously, all your whining about journalism seems to be masking something else."

Why else would Anita Sarkeesian be so heavily mentioned? She's not a journalist.
Yep that's why anita went right off the bat making it about sexuality, femnism, and going right out into la-la land to make shit up to suit their agenda.

Not sure how much sense this makes for MS, but definitely a good deal for the founders of Mojang. Congrats!
Yeah I can't figure it out either. I mean sure, minecraft is interesting but I grew up and out of legos when I was around 10. I couldn't ever understand the appeal of it. But congrats for making something and getting bought out for an insane amount of money.

Former journalist speaks out on corruption "in gaming journalism" Yet another ex-gaming journalist speaks out on corruption.

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.

In other news, modern machines were spontaneously catching fire all over the world as unearthed ET cartridges which were auctioned off were used for the first time. AI specialists believe that the machines were committing suicide, in order to save themselves.

It seems to be a pretty bi-partisan thing. Old People would be the demographic I'd pin the complacency on.
Uh seriously? "Old people" are the largest voting block, old of course is subjective but generally considered anyone over about 40 these days. You want complacency? Look at the youth(18-30) voting block, it's dipped as low as 10%

I dunno. I just built a new rig - finally after the last 3 years - and I have an ADATA SX900 128GB that's 550/R 520/W and it doesn't seem to be a whole lot faster than my 7200 500GB WD - which is now my D drive. From the way everyone talks I thought it'd be like a night and day difference but it isn't. I'd say it's marginally faster - but that could just as much have to do with my new RAM, Mobo, etc. I wouldn't say someone *has* to get one. Particularly given the cost and the much shorter life span on them.

Thats weird Cutter. I use my SSD for the system disk, and my boot time is like a few seconds tops. Also the one HUGE game I have on it (DCS: World) loads like 4-5 faster at least. Although the load times of DCS on a traditional HDD were attrocious to say the least. So maybe you havent really taxed it yet?

Not like I've actually timed it, I'm just saying it doesn't seem all that much faster.
Might want to look at your configuration then man. I'm using exactly the same SSD and went from an original 1st gen vertex drive. Looking at boot times I went from:
HDD WD 7200RPM: 43.7 seconds
Vertex: 11.3 seconds
SX900: 7.3 seconds

App launch times - heavy WoW
52.1 seconds
23.9 seconds
13.2 seconds

There was a substantial difference even between current gen and 1st gen. Anyway my sister bought the thing for me, so I guess it'll either be good or shit.
