IN-CASE YOU NEEDED PROOF.
THAT GAMING JOURNALISTS DO NOT PLAY OR CARE FOR VIDEO GAMES.
I MEAN YOU COULD HAVE FUCKING GOGGLED THIS ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. I COULD DO A BETTER JOB
You’re missing the fucking point, which is that he does not support or like gamer gate. As for gamer gate being about…
I’d like to see positive proof that he does oppose Gamergate. In my eyes, I can just see that he doesn’t want to get involved in the whole gigantic tidal wave of drama that is running through the western world. All he said was that he was going to block anyone who mentions gamergate, and that’s that. He just doesn’t give a crap.
Gamergate trying to censoring reviewers? Gamergate has never censored anything, nor has even tried to. The only things they’ve really censored, like as of recently was a doxx of Quinn on 8chan, which is perfectly justifiable. They just simply disagree, provide counterarguments, possibly call them idiots, and move on. If you mean censorship by telling advertisers to pull away from journalism websites, I think they have every right to do that, considering how much those journalist chuck out ad hominems and strawmen in every direction. “Gamers are dead”, etc.
As for the #gamerovergate thing you linked… that was more than a month ago for one, and for two, that’s just Zoe cherry picking a chat consisting of just 12 people, and those aren’t even the same chat sessions, one of them being about 2 weeks ago or so. Lots of cherry picking I guess. Have a different piece of one of those chat sessions. Eron called her out on the cherry picking too, when it came to the lawyer “AMA”. I don’t really know everything about that whole issue, considering that was more than a month ago.
edit: And he doesn’t reply at all. Wonderful.
No. Stop. Dark Souls wasn’t made to be the hardest game ever made. Trying to start a pissing contest about games that are “harder” than this.
This bothers me, like the idea I’ve noticed lots of folks have that DS is “just hard” like the game is hard for the sake of being hard. That is not the case at all. DS is challenging and has an engine that you absolutely have to acclimate to in order to succeed or it will seem infinitely hard. This is like the folks that just refuse to learn how to play the game correctly or play it, give up at the Taurus Demon and then declare it that it’s the hardest game ev0r. Pleeze.
There is a Korean MMO called Vindictus on Steam that has very similar mechanics to Dark Souls in terms of combat gameplay from what I gathered, although it’s a bit more fast paced than what Dark Souls is. You just need to analyze your enemies and know how to take them down. Though in Vindictus, you typically are fighting enemies with other players on your side, who can serve as distractions while you’re off drinking potions or something. Vindictus could become Dark Souls however, minus the major consequences of losing if you choose to go solo in Vindictus however.
Gamer gate has been trying to use Bayonetta as a rallying point, and criticism of it as proof of a “feminist agenda” in reviews
They’ve been trying to get Hideki Kamiya, creator of Bayonetta, to support them
the salt is so fucking real
Way to take this out of context.
He just doesn’t want anything to do with gamergate, whether or not you support it. It’s a western issue. He gives no crap about the gender politics or journalistic issues or anything else happening over here.
I like how everyone focuses on the “feminist” part and not the “censorship” and “nepotism” part of this whole gamergate issue.
Been wanting to draw this for a while
Use this video for when people throw said false arguments at you. If they’re even more offended, it doesn’t mean you’re in the wrong. Just move on.
dsp is a national treasure
I lost the ability to stop laughing for a moment there.
Not feminism. Irresponsible toxic and corrupt ideas that this website and others have created that try to call themselves feminism.
Make no mistake. “Feminism” had nothing to do with what happened. It was the disgusting and poisonous culture that glorifies an “us vs. them, any means necessary to destroy the enemy” mindset that lead to this. This monster tries to hide its true horrific nature by calling itself “Feminism” as it shits on everything Feminism truly means.
It’s influencing young, impressionable minds whose hearts are in the right places by making them think their actions will lead to a better tomorrow.
That statement is wrong on so many levels
- we ARE talking about Anita’s threats, they just arent major focus because…
- theres no evidence #GamerGate has anything to do with that threat
- people on our side dont trust Anita because she’s lied and gone as far as to point people to child porn in the past to show how harassed she is. Most of us believe she’s just doing all this for attention, even if the threats are legitimate
- Which, FYI, has nothing to do with the fact she’s a woman
- I’ve reblogged PLENTY of people on our side who are women, people of colour and LGBT
- if you want me to varify that claim, Id be happy to send you to a Vietnamese College/University/Tertiary education student who supports us. It just so happens he’s one of the major contributors on the KnowYourMeme front
- I would personally LOVE more Women, PoC and LGBT+ characters as protagonists…
- and by that, I mean MAIN protagonists, because there are too many of those kinds of general protagonists to count.
- If you looked through this blog, you’d see that doxxing and harassment are prevalent tactics against our movement, but I bet you wouldnt even cry foul if you saw it first hand
- By the way, have you even looked through my tumblr? Maybe you should look through it before trying to find out my position on these things.
- You dont know my gender, race, sexuality or gender identity. Applying the “Cis-White-Straight-male is the norm” logic is disingenuous.
- Finally, you are indirectly implying by your LGBT+ statement that I do not think that the bands Queen and the Foo Fighters are good bands seeing that one of them had a Gay lead singer and the other had a lead singer that cross dressed (That counts as LGBT+ by the way). But I do.
I hope you see the error in your ways (Unlikely as it is) and I hope you calm down the next time you try and make an argument.
(start here before reading below, otherwise the first post will seem confusing.)
Well that was a surprisingly real phonecall. Talked with her mom about what happened and what she did, then her mom made the girl herself get on the phone and apologize.
I just asked her why she did it and she didn’t really have an answer. Talked to her for a little bit on how this can really hurt people and ruin lives.
She said she just wanted to be a good feminist
Talked a bit on what it means to be socially responsible, and how if she really wanted to make a positive change she wouldn’t do stuff like this
Her mom was terrified I was gonna press charges or something, but I said nah, I’m not gonna ruin anyone’s life like that. She did get grounded from the internet for a couple of weeks, though.
She doesn’t seem like a bad kid, just really misguided and very impressionable. Last thing I said to her was that if anyone ever makes her think that helping someone ever means hurting someone else, they’re not interested in helping anyone and they probably don’t care what happens to her.
She said she was sorry, cried some, said she’ll never do it again and then she said something that really kinda just… I dunno, shocked me? She asked “Do you hate me?” and I said “No” and she just cried more and said she was sorry.
I asked her to remember that there are real, living people with real feelings at every computer and she said she’d try to.
I feel bad for her, really. People really lead her to believe what she did was an appropriate thing to do. That’s a failure and lack of social responsible on the fucking internet and its call out culture. She’s just as much a victim as I was.
This is fucked up beyond belief and I hope every single godamned one of you realizes this is not what feminism is about. Anybody who believes this is a-okay behavior (what the girl was doing, I mean) shouldn’t be referring to themselves as a feminist. They should be referring to themselves as hate mongers.
Exactly. Social Justice is a hate movement and the people within don’t seem to realize it. It’s literally a cycle of brainwashing people into thinking that ruining peoples lives and ignoring facts are an acceptable way to react to people with differing opinions.
This is why I hate social justice so fucking much. It’s not about protecting or defending anyone or equal rights. It’s about people so out of touch with reality and so delusional that they get enraged over the smallest things and try to ruin peoples lives and whats worse is when they bring more people into it, convince them that the social justice way of thinking is right and anyone else is Hitler incarnate.
People can’t seem to understand that change doesn’t happen overnight. The general consensus can be that ‘this thing is wrong’, but you can’t go hating people for doing or saying or believing those things when it’s all they’ve known. And some people can’t be changed. Sad fact, but they’ll die before you can convince them otherwise.
Another thing people don’t seem to realize is that people don’t respond well to being yelled at or treated like idiots. If you want to help or try to change somebody’s mind, you need to need to be able to explain your stance without devolving into threats and being an asshole. Nobody is going to listen to you if you’re being a twat about it.
Exactly. I don’t know how any of these SJWs expect anything to actually change for the better when they go around being as abusive as humanly possible to the people they need on their side to make the fucking change they want.
That’s why I don’t believe social justice will ever accomplish anything. At least, anything for the better of people. The only thing they can do is spew hate, ruin innocent peoples lives over trivial disagreements and bring the young and impressionable into the fold. This is why the social justice movement has to be stopped. Because it’s only going to get worse if we let them continue.
I feel that mentality is just as harmful, to be honest. There IS such a thing as social justice, social progress and changing things for the better. But the onus is on each and every one of us to do the right thing and be the best we can be to ensure that it happens.
We all have to stand up against corruption, monsters that manipulate and exploit the impressionable no matter what form they take. All while holding out a hand to pull those in need out of pits and fires.
There is no clear cut “good” side or “bad” side, only those who would do good and those who would do bad.
