Who cares, except those who find her opinion inconvenient?

Wow, we have zero common ground on this topic if you don't think she should even have to do the necessary research about the things shes complaining about in the first place.

It's scary that people think it's ok for a person that has some power in her opinions to give them without doing any research or have no experience on the things she's giving an opinion to.

People are free to give opinions on things they don't research, experience or understand. I call them idiots at best, disingenuous pathological liars with an agenda at worst.

I'm not even convinced she actually plays the games herself.

So you are saying that it's ok to give opinions on things that the person has no experience of whatsoever, no knowledge, nothing? Wow. Listen and believe, people, listen and believe.

I'm struggling to even recall who Brianna Wu is, refresh my memory.

She's been in the forefront of spreading lies about GG. She, along with Sarkesian, were the centerpiece protagonists of the ABC hit piece on GG, for instance. She has showed up anywhere she could, basically, to act her professional victim act. She's the one that claimed GG of making countless death threats on her and getting tons of press time on mainstream and gaming journalism due to that despite not showing evidence for a single threat.

She's a wannabe Sarkesian to be honest, that should tell you everything.

The Escapist has now become a pro-GG site, which is good for the industry as a whole.

Brianna Wu, meanwhile, has been exposed. From the restraining order she had against this non-existent guy, which brings to light that she either lied about having a restraining order or there are some incompetent judges that allow a restraining order to be written against fictional people, to having been caught harassing herself for sympathy on Steam. Remember, this is a spokesperson against GG, which Milo thankfully has now exposed all her lies and nutiness for the world to see.

Wonder what'll happen if the game comes out and is a buggy unoptimized mess as GTA IV was.

It's a shame about Turtle Rock, after all their well earned good will garnered from the L4D series, they blow it all away on an average at best, stripped down game with a terrible, greedy DLC plan.

Surprised WotC survived D&D 4th Ed. That is by far the worst D&D in history. 5th Edition is having low sales now because people no longer trust them.

Damn, this project is going to blow up into a massive scandal, isn't it? The writing is all over on the wall. What a shame.

Tim should be the last fucking person to talk about Peter after the Broken Age and DF9 debacles.

As I said in the other thread my feeling is that RPS would never take such a tone with a developer with a major publisher for fear of incurring their wrath and being blacklisted. Molyneux is just an easy target because he can't do anything to them.

This comment in their article is insightful as well:

"[...]john jumps on pm because he has the guts to be open about what has caused the issues. he didnt kill anyone and explains very well what drives him and why he constantly ends up in shituations like that. but hey, try this same shitty interview with a real big fish in the business, ask the ceos of ubi or ea why they are fucking up gaming with dlcs and mt. these companies do patholigically lie to people to satisfy their shareholders. but no, john unloads his childish frustrations on a guy who actually takes his time to talk to him. something none of the big pr machines of the big publishers would do. instead of honoring pm for this, you are the second row guys who keep on bashing him, while someone else has punched him. you guys are frustrated with being lied to over and over again by people that are out of your reach. thats why you celebrate this shit interview. you think finally one of them is getting what he deserves, but pm is not the big fish in the game anymore. he is head of a mid to small sized gaming company. nothing more. you are kicking the wrong guy for the right reasons. as always in this shit world, the masses kick the weak and bow to the strong. where is the RPS article about what publishers do with your data, how they use psychological methods to milk their audiences, where is the article pointing out who in the big companies is really working on monetizing and what background do these people have? this interview guys, is very weak and makes damaged my respect for RPS. -realscissors"

As I've said, Peter deserved this interview but it wouldn't have happened if he was still under MS or EA or any other publisher.

Would love to see this kind of interview with Randy Pitchford and Tim Schaffer. That would be quite a read.

This is the interview Peter deserved, to be honest, someone to call him on all his bullshit.

However I wonder if this interview would be as aggressive as it was if Peter was under the umbrella of a publisher, or if the interview would happen at all.

Still a great interview and Peter has nobody to blame but himself. This was his last chance to prove that, with Godus, he still had something from his past days and do a great game, instead the game devolved into the usual bullshit all projects that have Peter involved devolve to. A shame, the Peter Moulyneux that made Populous, Powermonger, Syndicate and Magic Carpet is really long dead and gone and won't be coming back.

No, they went after the sex with five guys, not the journalism part.

Kotaku disagrees. Then again since you still are quite disingenuous about Gamergate it doesn't surprise me you're still spewing the same stupid argument that has been debunked time and again.

Actually, she hasn't realized that she's sleeping in the bed she created. Much like Kotaku and Polygon didn't until they both got dragged in and smeared by their own narrative.

What's absolutely funny and a case of truly reaping the storm that you sowed, Kotaku wrote a very brutal piece against the SVU episode. Polygon, however, says the stuff that happened in the episode happened in real life, showing Polygon is out of touch with anything close to reality.

Kotaku is now tasting the narrative they helped build and they're hating it.

Are these articles the same two articles that MA posted? The ones which don't say what you're claiming?

Lesson for you for today, do not assume without checking first, it doesn't make you look good.

"It's corny, terrifying shlock that demonizes hardcore gamers and turns complicated conversations over misogyny in gaming into a cartoon caricature of good vs. evil. Even as SVU's writers imagined up a terrifying, totally feasible kidnapping scenario, they just couldn't help but pepper it with cartoon villains (who frequently talk about how they don't want women in video games, because of course) and painful one-liners. "There's no reset button in the real world," one cop explains. GAMERS, AM I RIGHT?"

"So, yeah. If you missed the episode, I wouldn't recommend it."

You know shit is bad when kotaku realizes the storm they sowed. Fucking kotaku of all places.

Here's what happened to that guy that won the Curiosity cube.

And apparently a lot of 22cans staff has quit.

Fucking hell Moulyneux, you only had to redo Populous in pretty graphics, how hard was that?

From reviews, this is the same as the last CitiesXL, they didn't even fix the fact the game runs only on one core. Apparently this is a big avoid.

Hmm, it's Fatshark, these devs don't have the most sterling of reputations when it comes to producing good games, they made Escape from Dead Island, one of the worst games of 2014.
