They're doing it because sports not in the "esports" category are separated by gender and are regarded as more legitimate sports.

Sorry folks, but esports are not sports. It's a game, so call it a game. It can take skill, it can even take some level of endurance, but trying to get it regarded as a more legitimate sport by separating it through gender is about as ridiculously stupid as it can get. There's no clear gender advantage in video games (other than some being played more by one gender than others)

I don't think I can call it biased because they do have female only "e-sports" in their tournaments. It's just plane stupid.

Were there a clear advantage to one gender or the other then yeah, I could understand that, but there isn't, so it's stupid. (Then again, the term esports is also stupid. I love games obviously I wouldn't be here if I didn't) but games aren't sports so don't make up stupid rules that make people think the tournaments are even dumber than they are.

this is very much correct that there is no gender advantage, which is evidenced by all the female gamers streaming on twitch that are constantly beating out all the other players. only backwards societies concern gender, and i feel the world is still in the stone ages sometimes.

i'd rather want to go see a movie adaptation of the System Shock series.

i remember the Hitman film was pretty decent, and one of the better game based movies i've seen. it did seem to be mostly faithful to the original material.

So, I'm thinking, who puts their stuff on sale the day after the Steam Summer Sale ends?

Also, what's the criteria for getting in the Canada Day sale? Are all those games made by Canadian Devs?

yeah, it does looks like all the games on sale are made by Canadians devs.

Cliffy B is an interesting guy in the game industry, and it's fun to have more characters like him around. way better than the boring Major Nelson who just goes after the money. and not like Phil Fish who takes notes from Derek Smart's school of PR, and fully retires from making games but still gets mentioned in the gaming news.

Who's got the bandwidth for 60 fps?

i do, but the bitrate on Youtube videos is crap. still prefer downloading raw uncompressed game videos hundreds of megs each. i have 40GB+ of E3 2014 videos downloaded, many in 60 FPS. one of the wonders of finally having unlimited internet.

Wait -- I thought he quit twitter months ago? Isn't this story essentially a repeat? (Prior to the previous story I'm thinking of, whatever it was, -- I'd never heard of him)

i think he reactivated his twitter account a few days after that. a news story saying this showed up somewhere as a result when i was searching for phil fish in google the other day.

oh wow... blast from the past. GamesCon was one of the first lan parties I've ever been too, back in '99. I think I remember seeing you there Blue. pretty sure Levelord was there too. still have my free Tribes 1 disc stashed away somewhere.

I know tomorrow there's the gaming hardware expo at AMD HQ:
