Regardless of whether the base accusation is true, that anyone would say that's "not [a] political hit piece" is the sort of believe-what-sounds-good nonsense that makes GamerGate such a waste of time.

And that's the part where politicians and the corrupt love you.

I mean, Ethan Ralph, no? Or how about the Not Your Shield guy, who had been on lists of YouTube harassers prior to GG being a thing (and who got fired for running an underage jailbait creepshot subreddit.)

Or all the Burgers and Fries people? Or do you care to link to your own Twitter, where I guarantee you've sent tweets to people you dislike to tell them how awful they are.

You mean the guy who's been mocked since nearly the start of GG for being a retard and a conspiracy nut? Which one is that? The purple heart guy who anti-gg tried to dox? Or Marcedes Carrera? The porn star that backed GG, and aggros tried to dox her too, and claim she wasn't female? You mean Dan Olson who was posting jail bait(which he claimed he got from 8chan--fyi which isn't illegal in the US, but illegal in Canada and he's a Canadian citizen) and got a visit from the RCMP because of it? He was never pro in any sense, or you mean Sarah Nyburg who is anti-gg, and is a self-confirmed pedophile who actively abused their cousin and passed around CP?

You mean stuff before GG happened? Or the twitter account I don't have. FYI: And that first question there? Remember all those cries you gave of "GG needs to change it's name" congratulations on proving why it wouldn't have mattered anyway, even though it did change it from "Burgers and fries" to "gamergate" you simply didn't care, you had an ax to grind and shitty people to protect.

Not sure Blue posts political hit-piece site articles. Did you try to cross reference your topic with a site that actually tries to maintain some objectivity? I can't find that info on any non-pure-political or non-antisocial site, hell it didn't even make the crossover to faux news (though I could have missed it).
FYI you can read the leaks yourself, just google them. They're not political hit pieces, they're leaks about an organization and group of people who claim to be anti-harassment specialists. They were also sent to every site(from Kotaku to Polygon to Jezebel and Business Insider) that did pro-quinn and pro-CON pieces, and they wouldn't touch them, despite the fact that the leaks show them engaging in the very behavior that they claim to be against. Though other sites did, showing they had no qualms about showing how shitty of an organization and the people of it really are. CON itself has more problems, like claim that one of it's volunteers sexually harassed 20 women. FYI one of the people who confirmed that is also one of the people in CON(Izzy).

In the old days, this was called "circling the wagons." In the modern era which lacks even the basic shred of ethics, it's simply corruption, back scratching and protecting the clique.

Mashiki Amiketo, That is what I chalked it up too.

Possibly. Then again no one seems to be able to dispute anything, and it's far easier to bury your head in the sand then pretend the people you championed weren't the giant hypocrites they really were.

Ding ding ding. Though interesting that, within minutes, two old accounts that never post show up to post about GG.

Ever get around to actually finding that proof that people in GG are actually harassers there Beamer? Or are you still upset that major anti-GG names are actual harassers, doxers, and have threatened people. While claiming to be members of an "anti-harassment" organization, same said organization had a person who sexually harassed 20+ women. Oh and if you're talking about me? I only post when I feel like it, being old let's you do stuff like that.

Maybe GG is both old news and too toxic?

Doubtful. Can't go a day in the media without someone gamedropping on GG..or couldn't. But now that the big names(Haper, Quinn, Cross(Sarkeesian's one time right-hand) Coffin, Lifshitz, etc -- only one who's missing is Wu, and that's because they considered them too crazy to be of any use)), who claimed that GG was all about doxing/harassment/threads/death threats/ect are shown in the chatlogs to be actual agents of doing so? Seems that it is news and a story again.

There's also another huge leak of CON chatlogs coming, though no one knows what's in it. FYI on those first around of leaks, the content was given to just every gaming outlet and only 3 of them decided ti write a story. Can't prove that the narrative is wrong after investing 2 years of lies into.

Really?? This makes the news here at Blues but the CON leaks never got a mention.smh http://heatst.com/tech/chat-logs-expose-crash-override-network-as-online-bullies/

If you send it, he will post it. (Usually)

news at bluesnews dot com


Either blues felt it was unnewsworthy, or it got lost in the traffic. But with another brand of leeks from CON coming out showing that anti-GG were really the harassers in all of this, it should have a post. Especially since Blue covered the original GJP leaks, and all this crap shining a light on the industry. Never mind that the industry decided to triple down and start a "NO NO NO WE'RE NOT CORRUPT/HARASSING/PLANNING DOXS, NOT EVEN WHEN THOSE LEAKS SHOW IT TO BE TRUE" round of stories.

I sent it, along with three other articles from authors of three different sites. It was never posted.

But here's the mail I sent:

CON(Crash override network) which claimed to be out to help people of harassment, has been caught in their own chat logs harassing, planning doxs, and attempting to get individuals fired. This group was supposed to "deal with the harassment of gamergate" which has never been substantiated in any form, those who claim to have been harassed have offered no emails, no police reports, no proof in any form of said abuse coming from any person directly attached to it.

Another member of CON has been accused of sexually harassing 20+ women.

By Ian Miles Choeng(EiC of Gameranx)
http://heatst.com/tech/chat-logs-expose-crash-override-network-as-online-bullies/

"Harassment is rife on social media. Users are allegedly targeted for no reason other than their gender or the color of their skin and the only response by these platforms is to ban users who violate their code of conduct. More often than not, users simply engage in online arguments with each other based on their political views.

In the months after the GamerGate movement arose, Zoe Quinn founded Crash Override Network, or CON. Her alleged infidelity was the catalyst for the now infamous hashtag. The organization was set up to fight online abuse—purporting to deal with the harassment of women and minorities in the game industry on social media. In case you’re wondering, the name was inspired by the cult ‘90s movie Hackers.

In response to criticism of its platform, Twitter established a “Trust and Safety Council” to make the platform a less hostile place for users. The council is supposed to prevent abuse, harassment, and bullying. Among the select organizations to become a part of the council, Feminist Frequency was listed as an inaugural member. It’s no secret that Feminist Frequency now sponsors Crash Override Network."

By Joshua Wiitala(Editor of Gamertics)
http://www.gamertics.com/leaked-crash-override-network-logs-reveal-inner-workings/

Snippet:
"One of the most common accusations made about GamerGate is that it is a hate group dedicated to targeted harassment, doxing, and cyber bullying. As it turns out, all of these accusations are more likely true about some of those who stand opposed to GamerGate, their lofty goal of putting an end to unethical and heavily biased video games journalism a goal that this writer supports wholly.

Ian Miles Cheong, a man who once stood opposed to GamerGate, has come forward to tell people that the chat logs detailing planned doxing and harassment of GamerGate supporters are in fact, real. As well as falsely accusing GamerGate supporters of things they never did knowingly simply to continue spreading a false narrative of harassment."


By Ashe Schow(Commentary writer @ Washington Examiner/Senior Political Columnist @ The Observer)

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/when-the-harassed-become-the-harassers/article/2600558

Snippet:

"Quinn used her new celebrity status to found Crash Override Network, which was supposed to stop online bullying. But internal chat logs from members who would eventually create the group, leaked by a member of the group, reveal that it used tactics such as doxxing (by which a person's private contact information is published online in order to intimidate them) to harass people in the Gamergate movement or those who members of CON had a personal grudge against.

For example, the group discussed trying to contact the superior officer of a Purple Heart recipient who had expressed support of Gamergate to try to silence him. The group also discussed contacting Google in an attempt to get Justine Tunney fired after she also voiced support for Gamergate."

Actually yes, please do. I presume you're also referring to that AVGN argument and to be fair, I was too hasty to call him sexist. That remains the most likely explanation, but with him I don't know for sure.

I only have a vague idea what a kafkatrap is; calling someone sexist because they deny being sexist. That is circular logic and would be wrong if it happened, which it did not.

No, I was talking about a few people. Not you in general. But you're right, that's exactly what a kafkatrap is. If a person turns around and says "we need xyz thing(be it forced quotas, or whatever else) because reasons to get women into an industry" to get people into the industry that's wrong. That's openly promoting a sexist pov, someone like me who supports merit, believes in a meritocracy the only people that should be hired for something are those that a) want to be there. b) have the skills to do the job and show that they're the top.

If it comes down to two people regardless of their sex/race/whatever, then they should face off for the job and prove that they're the best candidate. In the industry, the easiest would be a code off. In politics? Open debates in front of a group of their peers.

Make sense? Or am I so tired that I'm forgetting what this was all about?

Bodolza wrote on Aug 25, 2016, 14:51:

So, are they professional publications with journalistic standards, or are they "enthusiast media" filled with "corruption and cronyism"?

Depends on the site. Sites like Nichegamer and techraptor? They have standards, even bluesnews would fall into the first group--even though Blue does more aggregate stuff then reviews like he used to. Sites like RPS, Polygon, Kotaku? The latter. The Gamejournopros leaks proved that without a doubt. Keep in mind that the GJP group was set up by the same person who was forced out from WAPO(I think it was) for creating Journolist which was operating as a giant collusion group to steer the narrative of the media. While some of the people in GJP, were a member and didn't engross themselves in the hive mentality and cult like bullshit, quite a few members did.

Most of those people are no longer in the game review industry, they no longer write on vidya, and the sites that they tried to move off and onto to push their political crap have collapsed in the last year.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Aug 24, 2016, 23:20:

I don't support Gamergate in the form it took but crap like this is why it's absolutely undeniable that corruption and cronyism are rampant in the games press. I didn't always agree with Austin Walker but I really thought he was above this kind of garbage.

You can like or hate it in whatever form it took in the end. Personally I'm fine with it, it refused to bow to PR, shills, outside influences trying to control it, attempts to being co-opted, pushes for a formal leadership, and continues to do the same shit it did from day one. Dig, report, hold corrupt jackasses to the fire and helped lead to the death of some of those corrupt fuckers careers as well as their sites and got Max Read so salty that in his final temper tantrum he didn't attack the judge, jury, lawyers, Hogan, Thiel or anyone else...he tried to attack Gamergate one last time.

And at the end of the day, for all those people who claimed that "GG were evil harassers" and so on the truth finally comes out that they(the big anti-GG names) were behind many of the doxing, threats, and so on. The only people missing are Sarkeesian, and Wu. Everyone from the producers of FF to Quinn herself get to be shown that they're bottom feeding pieces of shit. And all it took was one person realizing what they'd become(and another ex-anti-GG groupie who was neck deep, and had a change of heart after realizing how bad of a person they'd become to verify that it was true), that they were doing what they claimed their ideological enemies were doing. Projection is a hell of a thing.

Anyway, it runs great for me, so I hope this patch doesn't eff it up

Well just got my first CTD with the game post-patch. Was just starting to do the shooting range bit, picked up the combat rifle and bang. Enjoyable crash.

For preorder bonuses, not season pass bonuses.

People are reporting the same problem with the season pass bonuses. Again in either case it's still false/misleading advertising.

Season pass items != preorder items.

I don't think anyone knows if the season pass items are one use only items or not.

Read the thread, a CM(from Square I believe) posted that they're "one time use, one save only" items.

Microtransactions? Pathetic! Flamethrower

Posted a thread on it last night. The fact that many of the items from the season pass are "one use only" and it's not spelt out as such is deceptive/misleading advertising in quite a few places. They're likely going to have a serious problem with it in the near future.

Btw if you bought the season pass, apparently many of the items are "one time use" and you only use them once and only on one save. There's a thread over on reddit about it. Canucks might want to file a complaint with the competition board since it's deceptive advertising, and states no where that it's actually the case.

Well, it's a common theme across just about every single review out there and when even the mainstream reviewers notice that the story sucks then it must be really terribad...

Some reviewers actually loved the story. Most say it lacks high points. Rare are the ones who say it's bad.

Lot of reviewers hated the story in Fallout and Planescape: Torment too. Both of which are considered genre defining titles. 2.8GB worth of data to download as well post game going live FYI.

You haven't called anyone out, except when you have but that doesn't count because you don't want it to. Fair enough.

You said it was sexist to call people sexist, while you called people sexist. That's the closest thing to any kafkatrap and you pulled it on yourself.
And there's that point that went flying over your head. Need me to explain it a bit more?

Reviews say the gameplay is good, but the ending is bad. But I've also seen folks say it takes 20+ hours to get to the end, so 20 hours of good DX is good for me, even if the ending is subpar.



The reviewers who've been whining about it are the same ones that were whining over Aug Lives Matter and stuff like that as well. On top of it they apparently didn't do any side quests at all.
