Fun fact: Anita supported #CancelColbert. The creator of #CancelColbert is not pleased.

Seems fair. He said "some gamers" not "gamers" describing the harassment. And when he specifically asked for for examples, all she could come up with was GTA, before sidestepping and going back on message.

Whereas she says gamersgate is about "terrorizing women", and dismissing any view besides the one that furthers her own agenda/promotion.


Yeah, Colbert dismantled her quite well, he did his research and called her to provide facts to sustain her argument and she couldn't, at all.

Here is the clip.

So, uh... it may be a good idea for most of this board to make a point of not watching Colbert tonight.

Though I'm fairly certain many here make that point every night.

I enjoyed it a lot. Did you?

David Parkman interviews Brianna Wu and asks all the relevant questions. Hilarity ensues. At last, an interviewer who actually did research and isn't afraid to ask the right questions.

Here's the latest PopeHat Gamergate article which was written after Beamer's article and shows a more neutral stance, wherein he proves GG is about ethics and was always about ethics.

Nintendo may be the latest company to cut ties from Gawker.

It's actually a pretty fun little game. Think of it as Hexxen-lite of a sort with roguelite elements. Good for killing an hour or two.

I feel sorry for Gamersgate. They've even had the name for 10 years!

Yeah me too. Very unfortunate turn of events for them. They may want to consider changing their name.

I'd totally forgotten about them until it was mentioned here the other day.


Pretty awesome store to be honest, usually buy many games from there.

While the Media Slanders Gamers as ‘Terrorists,’ GamerGate Is Hunting Trolls and Abusers

"Supporters of the GamerGate movement have been working tirelessly to hunt down those who would use their banner to cause personal harm—all while the media continues to claim that GamerGate members are either participating in or indifferent to the harassment of women in the gaming industry."

Breitbart.com? Really? That you would point to a website like that, in support of your movement, is more revealing than you know.

Here's a little info on Breitbart's long history of falsehoods:

[url=LongURL]mediamatters.org/research/2010/07/21/big-falsehoods-an-updated-guide-to-andrew-breit/168051[/url]

(EDIT: Arrrrhg, how the hell do you make long urls work on blues news? The advice the site gives does not work.)

The fact that you guys are allied with or are fast becoming indistinguishable from right wing shills like this, does not do your arguments any favors. The right has a long history of discriminating against women, when it isn't outright trying to control them by banning abortion, birth control, making bizarre statements about rape, etc etc.

You should see if you can find any Taliban-related sites in favor of your movement. That'll really help the cause.

So... your strategy is to attack the messenger and not the message. Gotcha. Doesn't make anything in the article any less valid and true. Also, your conspiracy theories of political ideology are just that, GG is apolotical. That a site like this is doing actual, proper journalistic research should be a mark of shame on sites that declare themselves journalistic instead.

Also, ad hominems and generalizations lead you nowhere. The taliban, fucking LOL.

I haven't been keeping up on the corporate side of this. I've heard Intel and some others have pulled advertising from some sites. How have those sites responded, and have the changes (if any) they've made to their journalism codes been effective yet?

Believe it or not, they actually insulted their ex-advertisers.

From what I've been reading on forums, the game isn't that worth buying if you were expecting something much different from Civ 5. A shame, I'll wait for the inevitable GOTY edition.

Huh, on the gaming podcast I listen to they said, "If you're expecting this to be like Civ 5, you'll be disappointed."

Well, TotalBiscuit seems to have my opinion. Either way I'm not entirely convinced this is worth the asking price right now.

And now Olympus has dropped Gawker as well.

Also, the Grayson-Quinn relationship smoking gun appears to have finally have been found.

For those wanting a trip of nostalgia to the good old days, I recommend the Nectarine Radio, which livestreams game and demo tunes from the Amiga and C64 24/7.

Amiga was well ahead of its time in many areas, especially from a graphics and usability standpoint. For me, it was the 2nd pinnacle of my gaming days following the c64...

Same opinion as me. I sure loved my C64 and ZX Spectrum but I loved my Amiga more. Those were the days.
