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.

Again, Thunderf00t has no history of giving a shit about video games,

Neither does Anita.

Jack Thompson 2? Except without the conservative white male baggage much easier for the press to get on board.

Except she's not trying to censor anything or force anything or ban anything. She's not trying to pass legislation and not trying to outlaw anything.

She even points out in this very interview that games can be part of a pattern and still be wonderful and engaging and fun.

Except she personally shut down Thunderfoot's twitter account. That, Beamer, is real censorship, shutting a voice down, not removing ads. That's your idol right there, using censorship when she seems she can get away with it.

She reported Thunderf00t. She did not shut him down. She reported the things he said and Twitter deemed him a repulsive enough piece of shit with a long enough history of being a repulsive piece of shit that they no longer wanted him as part of their service. How is that different than someone hitting the "Report" button here and getting Space Captain banned? How is that different than sending advertisers an email demanding they pull the funding that keeps a site in business?


I dislike Thunderfoot as a person but please, do show me where he was a repulsive piece of shit, and I want direct quotes from him, not hearsay posted on other sites.

He dared to criticize Anita and debunk her for what she was so he's a piece of shit? Thunderfoot is many things but he was never, ever an harasser.

And yes, removing a twitter account counts as legitimate censorship, which is why he blames twitter for being spineless. But Anita's report on him to twitter was baseless, to the point his account was reinstated in less than 4 days, rending Anita's complaint invalid. In the end, she used a censorship tool to try and quiet one of her most fierce critics. And no, criticism is not harassment.

Sorry Beamer, you have no leg to stand here. You don't know Thuderfoot, as your post demonstrates, and so you decide to ad hominem him to hell in order to somehow validate Anita's attempt to silence a critic.

Gamergate: The abuse victims the media won’t tell you about.

"Another one is not giving enough of a spotlight to the abuse being sent the other way, towards the supporters and celebrities of Gamergate. This has been under particular scrutiny lately, as Gawker professional has been in the spotlight for openly advocating bullying and nerd shaming in order to shut the movement down."

Gamergate Raises $10,000 for Charity in Less Than a Day

"Gamergate is easily one of the most polarizing topics currently being discussed on the Internet. The movement began roughly two months ago, and has been pushing game journalists to begin disclosing their relationships with developers and each other, so that readers are aware of any possible bias that may be consciously or unconsciously influencing the writer’s work. A number of people have been less than receptive to this goal, and have treated Gamergate with hostility, as summarized here. Yesterday, Gamergate set a ball in motion that would end up picking up more than $10,000 in less than 24 hours."

Allegedly Mercedes Benz has just withdrawn their ads from Gawker, handy after Gawker employee wanting to "bring back bullying" and saying "nerds should be constantly shamed and degraded into submission." and a number of writers and ""journalists"" retweeted and favorited this.

Karma's a bitch.
