Which was the point of the tweets that Peter made that got him fired: He was saying, ‘Hey, this is about gender, because I’m out here talking about the same stuff she’s talking about, and this doesn’t happen to me.’”
this is 100% true, and most girls just roll over and take it
each side doesn't know what the other side is getting. I will go a week without anyone asking me to play a multiplayer game. ask a female friend how long she goes. ask her how many stalkers she's had compared to you

the company can do whatever it wants. the question to grapple with is why thousands of people brigaded to get two people fired. was it really because they were fighting for the justice of men who are abused on twitter?

The box office sales or the budget numbers? I agree that the box office sales are well below expectation for a Star Wars movie. However, what I had intended to communicate with my imprecise phrasing was that the budget numbers I quoted may not be 100% accurate, but at the least are reasonable estimates that imply that Solo is indeed on track to lose hundreds of millions of dollars for Disney. A loss in the hundreds of millions is, as you note, not a reasonable outcome for a Star Wars film.

Jesus Slick the extent to which you take your EA apologist role makes me sincerely hope you are an EA employee. At least that would make it understandable. If you aren't it really makes me sorry for you. To expect people to be grateful to EA for making their Star Wars game closer to something not a cynical predatory gambling simulator months after release is just utterly baffling.

Elaine Shirley, an Atarian of that era, told RePlay: ”Those were the times. He [Nolan Bushnell] hit on women and they hit on him. If the #MeToo movement was active when Atari was alive, I think half our company would be charged. To my knowledge, no one ever did anything they did not want to do.
“In truth,” Shirley continued, “I think there were at least the same or more aggressive women at the company. I am not condoning any inappropriate violations related to the #MeToo movement, but I think the movement needs to relate to the era in which the ‘violation’ occurred. However, there are some lines that can never be crossed (especially with children or sexual assaults) no matter what era it was.”
She continued that there was a time when two salesmen in the industry complemented her at a trade show, saying she had the “best legs in the industry.”
“That would not be acceptable now, but it did not bother me,” she said. “They should give Nolan the award,” she concluded.

Should be illegal and I can make quite a compelling argument.
A couple of months back my son had a friend over who tried Cuphead for the first time. Not only did he know the names of the bosses he then proceeds to start beating them, one-shotting at least one.
"Oh do you have this?" says I
"Nah, seen it on youtube" he replies
After playing for a while I ask him if he likes it, which he does.
"Are you going to pick up a copy?" says I
"Nah, I was going to but I watched it all on youtube" he replies.
What the actual. Aside from the fact I simply can't get my head around watching somebody else play a game, the streamers, in this case, have DEFINITELY cost a sale.
It's not just my son and his mates - there are legions of teenagers out there who consider themselves gamers but actually spend more time watching people play games instead of playing them themselves. It's certainly having an impact on the industry which leads to fewer profits, which leads to less development money, which leads to fewer or lower quality games.

I'm always surprised when gamers are angry at another form of technology, and claiming it makes people unhappy, antisocial shut-ins.

Funny you pick coal towns as your example. I've been to Chicago and Detroit (and Philly and Baltimore). You're more likely to encounter a shithole area in a city than in the country. But it's not like you have your own biases...
Wait, I thought the charitable explanation for why people support Trump is that it had nothing to do with race and solely to do with economics: that rural, ex-industrial areas are economically depressed, and that their residents feel left behind and looked down upon by the thriving urban areas. If you contend that in fact rural America is better off than urban America -- laughable but lets run with it -- then why exactly do you support Trump? Because he'll call predominantly black and brown countries shitholes and can can sexually assault women and get away with it?
Who says I support Trump? I just dislike leftist ideologues more (they've led to the death of way more people, especially in the 20th century). Secondly, having lived and worked in suburbs, small Appalachian towns, and in large, urban cities (including teaching in majority minority schools), the sheer danger to the resident of any small town is nothing compared with the slums of Baltimore, Shitcago, or Detroit. The primary difference is the arrogance of the urban elites. Somehow they feel they can look down from their upper middle-class enclaves (I guarantee neither you nor Beamer have ever lived in a place like Anacostia, DC... but I don't bother challenging him about this because he'll just make shit up, as usual) and moralize about the rural U.S. It's a little like being lectured on morality by Hollywood and all it's sexual predators. Physician, heal thyself...
I lived in Newark, NJ. Nice try. Now tell me who "left being ideagogues" have killed.
