Hmm, thread only made it to mid-fifties. Could we be on the downward slide? Might we have reached, PEAK GAMERGATE???
I dunno man, those media folks and all that have been saying that this was going to be dead 5 weeks or more ago. Then again some of them think that this has been on-going for 4 months already.

Uh. Okay. Which is what Sarkeesian did. Then she got called a lying bitch who should be killed.
She said that games should cater to their particular audience, not be open to everyone. She then ran off anyone at all confronted her view points, and asked for legitimate sources. There's a reason why people call her the "listen and believe lady." It's the entire mantra of her movement, not facts, just "listen and believe."

As a point as well, go dive into their subreddits, their circles, and go against the grain. See what happens, you'll be attacked, belittled, bullied, and then cast out.

Hrm, sad to see another circular Gamergate article on here, but I did find it interesting that 4chan has started to ban some Gamergaters?
4chan does that any time something becomes too big, project chanology ring any bells?

That, but also the graphs show it as well.

The comments in this thread are just appalling. No wonder the world is such a fucked up place.

Yeah must be because people have long figured out that you can make any statistic dance, and people are now actually demanding proof of something. How fucked up.

Looks like another win, Nissan has dropped Gawker as well. Looking forward to more companies seeing the light on this.
Considering Gawker is the scum of the internet, anything that hurts them is good.

Because there's room for nuance in language.

That's not a defense of the dude, I don't really follow twitter drama except for the lols and I'm sure he really is a dickhead, but there is more to language than literal interpretation.

It's just really easy to lose all that nuance in a limited format like Twitter.

So, where's the lol's? roflmao's and so on? Right. It's not difficult to "make something other than a literal interpretation" even in 140 characters. Hell, look at the stuff they pumped out today, we've got his parent company(gawker) attacking wizardchan, because ... they're virgins and they're socially inept. That's the type of material they pump out, and he's one of the guys who work for them. His boss(max read), also openly supported his statements...until of course they started losing advertisers. Then it was "all a misunderstanding."

To edit in: This is the type of shit he does.

Many are claiming Sam Biddle's comments were sarcastic and taken out of context. Well, if true, that's why you don't make unclear, context-free comments with only 144 characters. It's the same weak excuse that jackass made after threatening Steam.
Out of curiosity, how can a pro-bullying comment be taken out of context? That's literally what he said, "bring back bullying" "nerds need to be attacked." And it's not the first time either he's said something like that.

Generally speaking, if I am in the market for buying computer parts, I'll check out directcanada.ca for flat, solid shipping costs with very competitive prices, often cheaper than other e-tailers such as Newegg and NCIX. Speaking of NCIX, I used to praise them like a Bible thumper did the bible until they decided I no longer live on a heavily trafficked area and have to pay almost twice as much for ground shipping.
Check Canadacomputers out, they have flat rate shipping if it weighs more than 150lbs for your order. And if it's under 30lbs it's also flat rate(or was), but they ship through Purolator w/required signatures.

I've played the demo a couple times but it never really grabbed my interest. The gameplay just felt less fluid than IV's. Would playing it more help?
Not really, I own it plus all the dlc and expansion materials. I simply can't get hooked on it like I did with Civ4, something just "feels off" about the gameplay.

Not atypical in the psychology of a person like this. It's especially common in the entertainment business and among women, who consistently keep themselves relevant. Don't get me wrong, men do it too (equally as much, actually), it's just that the audience (average American) tends to focus more on the women (and thus it is more effective). In any case it is a symptom of fame and how it either emphasizes a person's personality or creates new flaws within it.

You're quite right actually.

Also for anyone who wants to read Pro-GG doxxed by 16 year old girl and confronted the main question is: Why did a 16 year old girl believe that doxxing someone made her a good feminist, who put this idea into her head, and who pushed her towards it.

Amusing ego, last time I checked she wasn't a game maker and isn't in a position to really do anything meaningful other than inflame a situation that would have died out already after Quinn stopped trending.
What's funny is every time GG ignores her, she comes back trying to re-inject herself doing something that screams "LOOK AT ME!!!!!" And she gets ignored again, and comes back with something else. Oh and if she "wanted to fix this" she'd be the first one lining up and going after reviewers. But she's happy with their brand of reviews. You know like Polygons review of bayonetta 2...full of her particular type of moral crusade.

Firing Arcs, you know that thing that's been on EVERY single Trek game with Starship combat going back as far as TNG A Final Unity, and continued with Starfleet Command series, Starfleet Academy/Klingon Academy, Armada 1 and 2, Dominion Wars, Bridge Commander and Star Trek Online.

But hell that's only 20 years of Trek games, wtf do I know
This. So much this. I wish they'd make another KA/SFA game.

Julio was proud because a game journalist was taken down.
Except he wasn't a game journalist.

Please reread the conversation you entered into because you're quoting it but not at all getting what was being said.
That's great, except it has nothing to do with what I was talking about now was it.

Speaking of which, remember [url=http://i.imgur.com/QpBgJGQ.jpg?1"it was all a joke, and max read supported the comments."[/url]

By the by, apparently Polygon is now on an ad-aggregator, which means that their dedicated ad placements are not being renewed. It means that advertisers know that their brand is toxic to those that they're aimed at.

None of this has anything to do with anything we were discussing.
Thanks for trying. Everyone agrees Sam Biddle is a moron. Everyone thinks the people favoriting it were idiots. Only you are getting angry at people saying he isn't a games journalist.
Actually it has plenty to do with what we're discussing. He is a journalist, he is a member of gawker. No one is disputing that. What you're failing to catch is that other "game journalists" retweeted it, and marked it as a favorite. Not rocket surgery. Yep they are idiots for doing so, but this reflects directly on them now. That means there's at least 5 other major sites where people also believe that this is acceptable.

Strange, but I don't seem to be angry at anything. Actually I just had a great breakfast for supper. AKA french toast, and am in quite a good mood.

It means they agreed with it. It doesn't mean Sam Biddle is a gaming journalist. You can agree with someone without being a part of their clique. The world is not that black and white.
So you're telling me that said "journalists" agree that bullying is a good thing? You're also telling me that in "anti-bullying month" we have this swath of journalists who don't have the optics to see why this is bad. And you're also telling me that these are the people support what many kids in school suffered through and want to do it again.

You know what this seems like? The bullies simply grew up, and got jobs as "social advocates" and "journalists" because the only thing they know how to do is bully people. Well taking a page out of their book, this means that the entire anti-gg segment supports bullying.

Sam Biddle is a moron, but he's a moron that has absolutely nothing to do with games or gamers. He deserves to be endlessly bashed for saying dumb things, but Julio is being a jackass if he thinks that Sam Biddle writes for a game site. He does not. He writes for a gossip site.
Oh? I guess that's why when you look at the tweets, you see all of those "game journalists" retweeting it and favoriting the pro-bullying message right?

That douche isn't from a gaming site and Mercedes didn't pull it from a gaming site. He's from a "silicon valley gossip" site.
As I keep pointing out, game sites have been quiet since the "gamers are dead" articles and that was about 8 weeks ago.
Actually he is, so is the EIC. The gawker brand includes gaming on a variety of their satellite sites.

edit: Oh and that o.canada article you linked? That doesn't even come close to journalism, it doesn't even come close to opinion. An opinion article would have substantive facts, it has subjective opinion. You know what we call that? Propaganda.

I'm calling bullshit, completely disingenuous for you 3 guys to say "you would give a talk/speech/discussion" with armed participants. Hahaha_no

Especially without mentioning the part about she is under real and present danger from rape and death threats. Threats the police and FBI have deemed valid enough for her to be forced to leave her home.
When I was a teenager, I had someone stalk me. I learned then not to give into the fear of "what if" otherwise it would rule me. People who make threats or stalk do it for one of two reasons, to shut you up, or to make you live in fear.

Oh and she left on her own, not because someone told her to.

It's actually not true that there was no threat just because the one threat was investigated and determined to be otherwise. There very well could have been a threat, because again, if you're going to conceal a weapon with intent to use it you're not going to broadcast that to the police.

The difference between credible threat means that it was investigated and a person was found with a high chance that they were going to commit some criminal act. A non-credible threat means that it was investigated and there was no chance that the act was going to happen. You seemed to have missed that. And actually many people who "have a weapon and plan to commit it" do broadcast it in some form. That's how most of them are caught, the same way that people are caught for other criminal acts.

Probably not many, there are plenty in /r/kotakuinaction though.
