Surprise. When you elect authoritarians, you get authoritarian laws.

dialogue vs dialog, do not contribute to the bastardization of the English language, use the -ue!

dialogue, monologue, etc.
Get your english out of my english you centre of the universe type.

Wonder if they fixed the firefox menubar corruption problem in these that were present in the previous beta cats.

Yup. Sean Penn and Alec Baldwin, too. Some people come across as well nuanced. Adam Baldwin comes across as well read but a complete and total ass. Must run in the Baldwin name...
Oh don't worry, I'm sure that you're still happily cheering the anti-gg side that created a block list of 15k people, because they didn't want to hear the otherside of the argument. Remember that whole "which side really wants dialog on the problems..." yep it's not them.

Peh. Kyders law is based on physical disks, as more fabs move to NAND things will change, just like they did from single platter low density to single-high, double low-double high.

Hopefully New Vegas taught them a few things about difficulty scaling as well. While being some demigod in F3 was fun in its own way, NV did a much better job of making you feel vulnerable.

Well they did learn a few things apparently with Skyrim. The difficulty scaling was much better in that game then Oblivion or Morrowind that's for sure. Still I have much more faith in Obsidian "getting it right" on game and difficulty design then I do with Bethesda getting it right.

Bethesda's Fallout3 had mediocre writing at best. New Vegas improved on that a whole shitload, but its unrealistic to expect them to deliver something on par with Fallout2's phenomenal dialogue.
That would be because New Vegas was done by mainly the same people that did Fallout and Fallout 2, so no big shock that they did exactly that.

Kind of relieved. Why does it have to be set in one of the US cities? Couldnt they up the ante a little bit? Maybe let our hero travel to some more varied locations, you know like in Fallout2.

They hinted at "'Ronto" aka Toronto in The Pitt DLC. So who knows, there's lots of places that they could do.

No surprise. Anyone who believed this is an idiot.

Fallout 5 isn't happening.
Fallout 4 is though, there's enough information floating around showing that it's in production.

WoW is basically MMO light, but heavy on the digital crack content that power care-bears are so into. Kudos to the behavioral scientists at Blizzard for getting the digital crack forumla so tight.
Well be honest now. Skinner got it right, Blizz refined it. If it hadn't been so dumbed down by the time Cata came out, I'd still be playing. If they could recapture that feeling from TBC, I'd be back in a heartbeat. I don't regret the time I played at all, I made friends all over the place. I've met them when I've traveled, and I still chat with them via email, and IRC.

For someone like me who is extremely anti-social, and dislikes crowds it made a difference in my life.

Nah, I don't pirate stuff. I've thought about GMG, but did they send you the key right away? I'm worried that if I get it through GMG, they'll send the key on the day of release, which puts me in the same boat of having to wait five days for the thing to finish downloading.
All comes down to their release agreement date. Generally it's 1-3 days before hand sometimes, it's the same day or right on the hour of release.

This is great because it means we can move on to the journalism issues. Anti-GG is effectively withdrawing from the battle, which lets us get back to business. All the people who said "You need a new hashtag blah blah blah" were so fucking wrong. GG simply had to wait for the Anti-GG folks to take their ball and go home.

Yep that right there. What's funny, and I was going to post this earlier. Is they've launched like 8 different hastags they've all failed. Their most successful was stopgamergate2014 and all it did was give gamergate a positive boost.

These are of course exactly the same people, literally the people that the anti-gg crowd clustered around saying "we want a dialog" and when offered one, by someone who's neutral they're running away.

ok is it just me or has this whole debate devolved squarely into firstworldproblems nonsense? i'm all for journalistic integrity, but it's pretty clear the trolls have won (on both sides) and it's only about bickering now.
No it hasn't devolved into FWP's, that's one of the tactics that sjw's are trying to pull. People are still going after the sites, in fact vox(I think) ran a hit piece today decrying that we're going after their advertisers. If anything that shows they're running scared, since gawker is the "big noise machine" in the whole realm of shitty-non-journalism clickbait.

Something I found funny, the anti-gg's are now refusing to go on david pakman's show when they realized he isn't pulling any softball questions with anyone. Facts are delicious.

You really don't believe both sides are doing it?
That's part of the problem. How many Gamergaters refuse to admit there's been any kind of idiocy or wrong-doing on the part of gamergate?

Change the damn name already.

Really? So where's the proof. In fact I can travel to any of the chans where people are talking about this and at any point someone tries to even bring up some shit about it, they're shouted down and the thread is shitted into oblivion.

Going by your logic, the entire anti-GG movement is tainted by the actions of the reporters calling for bullying, and wanting to "play pinata with gamers corpse."

That's disappointing.
Both sides need to stop doing this. Throw this idiot out. Throw Adam Baldwin, Milo, Christine Hoff Sommers, and all the feminism-haters out. Throw anyone that's either never discussed video games or only discussed from the exact agenda they're taking on Gamergate out. Too many only discussing this thing because they care about something other than games, on both sides.

Except both sides aren't doing it. Baldwin hasn't been doing anything except making comments on his own. Milo is reporting on events that are newsworthy. Sommers is making statements based on her experience as a feminist in the traditional sense, not a 3rd wave authoritarian feminist.

And yet the anti-side is the one that keeps bringing up the studies, making it about various individuals who have no actual claim on the issue and so on. What's pathetic is that this is a play right out of the old marxist playbook, that being "relegating those you find against your ideology to 'mentally unsound.'" Yeah, people have seen this shit before.

Oh and then there these assholes. That's an editor of Mother Jones.

Will you people stop responding to that worm? Pretty please? Has he ever done anything except be an enormous douchebag and asshole who seemingly crawled out of the ground just for Gamergate? No. So why dignify anything he says with a response? Let's get back on topic.
Well I occasionally like grinding trolls faces into the mud. Speaking of mud, and "people feeling left out." LindaK explains why the gaming media's embracing of AS makes her like she's back in highschool and the "who's in" crowd.
