There was a lot of harassment from allegedly pro-GG sources in the first days, and in this last week it’s been the other way around.
Of course, nobody can actually prove any of these harassment allegations can actually be linked to either of the groups as a whole.
Threats of violence (99.99999999% completely idle) have been flying around from and to both sides for the best part of the month.
Adding to Mr.Doh’s comment, this is the first sort-of official statement from a AAA studio, and its heartwarming that it is somehow in favor of the movement.
I did know that! But did you know also that all Banjo-Kazooie players were bears? And Conker’s players were squirrels?
>Only 99.9% sure
>Spamming PDP’s videos
Didn’t he disable comments on all his videos a couple of weeks ago?
pls no harassment tho
>I believe game players are comfortable playing game avatars:
>Of a different gender than their own.
>Of a different race than their own.
>Of a different socio-economic status than their own.
>Of a different sexual orientation than their own.
>With different physical limitations than their own.
Because there are no male overweight players using slender, Elven female charaters on every single MMORPG ever.
Let them realize that naturally. If we try to force it they’ll lash back and call us shills
It wasn’t Watson herself. Rantic only claimed “a group of celebrities”, and since Watson wasn’t among those affected by The Fappening, I seriously doubt she would be directly involved with this.
I think it’s a much larger bandwagon with other people. And I have yet to see Watson victimize herself.
I don’t fully agree with her views, but I can respect her work. She is not trying to bullshit anyone.
Cracked is no longer worth our attention.
Looking at this list things don’t look so bad. There is only 4chin’s absence and as long as we stay away from /r/Gaming, Reddit doesn’t seem to care.
Which got me thinking, has anybody tried the Third-party source angle?
I mean, it could probably backfire, but since the issue is about gaming press, then gaming press sources should be discouraged.
I think it was legitimately viral. In the midst of The Fappening and Watson’s speech at the UN, it was bound to go big. There was no need for collusion
This is both good and bad.
Good in the sense that pro-GGers can argue bias.
Bad in the sense that shit is coming dangerously close to ArbCom
Skirmed through the first the pages and it’s pretty anti and does some cherry picking…
But at least it acknowledges there is a legitimate argument over game journo corruption, so it’s not that bad
hmm it’s tough one, but we’re all geeks anyway
we should still at least have some form of contact…and check over at 4chan and reddit to see if they get banned as well
We should find common ground with them. Not an alliance, mind you, but what are their talking points?
Did anybody here actually expect Watson nudes to be released?
4chan has been waiting for them since about 2006, does anybody honestly think anyone there could withhold them?
No, this is going way off the deep end. This man replaced Occam’s Razor with a ball of cotton an went along with it.
They made the silly mistake of going full Streisand.
According to Wikipedia itself, its Serbo-Croatian, which is an Slavic language.
