Are people so desperate for real issues to get upset about that one NPC shopkeeper becomes a 'controversy?'

You mean when someone decides to add garbage to beloved characters, and change characters because of their ideology it's not a problem? If they're that desperate for this stuff, let them write their own garbage. Don't use existing characters for your own soapbox, don't shoehorn stuff in either. But that's all just icing on the cake compared to how bad the game is in terms of bugs, broken MP, shit UI, did I mention bugs? First game I've ever gotten a refund on. That's how shitty it is.

I'm waiting for the politicians to declare adblockers are illegal. You know it's coming.

Wouldn't hold up in court.

I think this gives us a hint though.

Honestly, I think that was what really got their attention. More then even the Wayne Foundation going after her and nintendo. Like I mentioned before, the rumor floating around is that even those pictures weren't the moonlighting gig, it was her working for Sega. It'll be interesting to see if that's actually the case though.

Something funny though, they canned her ass from Treehouse. But they haven't canned the asses from Treehouse that can't do their job of providing a proper localization. Well there's always hope in that...

That's not a rumor. That's what the article is about. Both her and Nintendo confirmed that that was the official reason for termination.
The article says she was fired for moonlighting. Not who she was moonlighting for.

I wonder if these kind of photos were the ones that got her fired.

There's a rumor floating around that her cause for termination was moonlighting at Sega(she was definitely moonlighting though). That whole fist fight between console makers in the 90's never went away. But something to keep in mind, she was PR. She posted that on an account that is her own and was also used for official nintendo PR.

But I find all of this kind of funny. Especially the people in this thread blaming GG, and of course these are the same people who claim GG is dead. So to borrow something we're going to call this "Schrodinger's Gamergate." A movement both alive and dead, that has power, but has no power to do anything.

Neither the SJW nor the GG's people can help themselves and not attempt to get people they do not like fired. That's the thing you do. Two sides of the same ugly coin. Yes I know that large diverse groups cannot be policed. I applaud the folks so said things like "we should not be trying to get her fired, that's what the other side does."

Uh-huh. Funny that GG didn't have anything to do with it, and it was the wayne foundation(aka the normies) that took up the charge on it. Just remember what sloppy journalism looks like.

Hahaha those greedy fucks. $14.99 for a measly nine missions (not even in one piece but three times three). Regular price is $22.47 even. Buncha shitcocks!

At $14 for 9 missions, that's less then half the cost of the last expansion or the previous one which had 18-21 missions. Seems to be a fair price to me.

... So please, shut the fuck up. When there you have kids skipping school, dropping out, due to gaming addiction you have serious problems, when you have adults skipping work, due to gaming addiction, you have serious problems. ...

This is not Jack Thompson batshit crazy agendas we are talking about here, this is a nation with a serious problem that needs solving and quickly....

What, you mean like what the US has a problem with drugs, or booze? All of that shit you just mentioned happens in the US as well, and none of it's gaming related. FYI S.Korea's economy is still growing at a rate that should be making Americans heads hang in shame. For a country that you say has such a problem with gaming addiction, they sure are doing an amazing job with such a handicap. Especially when their economic growth is between 3-8% over the last 6 years.

But considering that many of the laws and regulations are being pushed by the fundamentalist religious nuts there, yes it's bat shit crazy agenda time. And yes, I've been to S.Korea.

In a country where people die at there PC's playing games... We might see this as Government knee-jerking reaction that would make the US look like the good guys(which is harder to do now then ever).

As he said below its enough of a national problem that it requires rules like this. Wait until fingerprint tech is required to scan people for buying beer in the US.

You mean like where people in the west die because of drugs, booze, and other poor lifestyle habits? In their homes, in cars, on the streets.

Then again, in most of the west this is called a "nanny state" and people in general are against that because they believe that self-determination and personal choice have consequences for good and ill.

How South Korea's Government Is Destroying The Korean Gaming Industry…

Aren't they doing that themselves by churning out MMO clone after MMO clone?

Nope. It's what the US would have been like in the 90's if Hillary Clinton and Jack Thompson would have won.

Scummy as Gawker is and regardless of how hard it needs to be smacked down $115M is absurd - never mind the fact it'll never happen anyway.

Against a site like Gawker? I'm disappointed it's so low. Especially after Denton's response to "how low of an age would you publish for a sex tape" and he responded with "5 year old sex tapes are a-okay in our book."

edit: Jury awards amount to Hogan, now moving onto punitive phase. Gawker is done.

"Players want free content without realising the impact
of their actions on the entire games industry."

No you jackass, players want content that isn't ripped out of the game in the first place. And in the other they don't want malware infecting their machines and turning them into bitcoin miners or part of some botnet.

Fix your ads and it won't be a problem.

With retarded AI of course. You can bet that the first robot you find will go berserk and then rush into a mirelurk queen banging it's head off of it instead of firing lasers or rockets.

Or trains breaking down because it's too hot, too stormy, too wet, or because it *gasp* snowed, in winter. (Also modern trains you can't open the windows, hence why broken AC can make these things a deathtrap)


Ah, I see you've been to Toronto during the many, many, many outages of both LRT, GoTrains and bus service.

They stopped building transit 70 years ago here. And all they've been doing since is talking about it. It's in the news all the time. All the time. And yet that's as far as it ever goes. Comic Book Guy gave it the 'Worst Transit System Ever' award.

Not really true, they've been expanding it for years though the last new subway station opened in 2002, and the last expansion of the 401 widened it significantly. Toronto believes LRT is the solution, it's not. Not forgetting that Toronto's population has effectively doubled in the last ~20-25 years, and neither roads or anything else has kept pace with it. Or that the city elects idiots that believes tearing down arterial highways is a way to fix transit problems. Or believes that removing roadways to stick in bikelanes will help traffic problems.

I actually don't know what this article is about (didn't feel like reading it) or what Gawker is.. (Don't care to look it up either)

The article is about a trial, and them publishing sex tapes even in defiance of judicial orders. In this case(of a question during the trial), they're fine with publishing child porn. Gawker, it's the central hub of what's wrong with media in general. They don't publish things because it's important, they publish things that think will generate them hits...and while doing it, if they lie that's okay too.

Wasn't he the editor at Gawker during the time the tape was released?
He still is the editor.
