Commented on DDOS against Escapist

Kind of. He weighed in on the SJW definition of misogyny:

“Specifically I don’t agree that video games are misogynistic just because there are certain tropes they tend to fall back on a lot. It is true that there are an awful lot of game stories where the protagonist is male and the female character exists either to be rescued or to die and give the protagonist motivation. We’ll call that the hero-damsel narrative. I don’t think that hero-damsel enforces misogyny. After all, the protagonist, the male, is the one who has it worst. He’s the one who has to put himself at pain, and even die, over and over again, in an endless cycle of torment, for the benefit of the women. Yeah, ‘damsels in distress’ tend to be shallow characters without much agency, but who has less agency than the protagonist? The one that can’t so much as lift a finger if the player doesn’t press a button telling them to?”

Commented on GamerGate

I remember one of the voice actresses for Skull Girls said something like this. She said the backlash from SJW’s makes game devs avoid female characters so they aren’t scrutinized and it makes it hard for female voice actresses to find work

Nothings more awesome than Clint Eastwood… So it would have to be TWO Clint Eastwoods!

Somebody said innovations don’t come from geniuses, but lazy people who want things to be easier.

I’d find out who said that, but I don’t feel like it right now

Commented on "5 Things I Learned as the Internet's Most Hated Person" A Cracked Article by Zoe Quinn, Page 1

What gets me is she says “most sites nuked the article” in regards to the piece her ex wrote about her, as though that’s a thing websites do. RPS wrote an article about how rule 34 worthy the new sonic characters were, but a conflict of interest between journalists and game devs? No those are just tabloid rumors we shouldn’t even acknowledge. Moreover, why would they delete forum threads about it?

Technically the Dark suit looks more like the Phazon Suit from Prime 1 since its just Samus’s regular suit but orange and black

Commented on Minecraft

Ah yes. I forgot that when people hate Microsoft, it’s cause they’re Sony fan boys and not because Microsoft has a horrible reputation all over the tech business

Commented on RIP in Peace

Or not. Has everyone already forgotten the Xbone’s online drm checks? Microsoft hasn’t earned a wait and see attitude

Commented on Why GamerGate happened

This is probably the best explanation I’ve seen since this thing started. If someone were to ask me what the deal with GamerGate was or why it started, I’d probably link them to this image

I like homemade better. Also, this is hilarious. They shouldn’t have removed the tweet

Commented on Jason, please stop....

Because it doesn’t matter. The knight and dwarf have ridiculous pecks biggest than their head. The whole game is like a parody/homage to ridiculous fantasy art, especially from old games. The sorceress doesn’t have huge tits to make her a sex symbol or fap bait. It’s a play on the boobs seen in other fantasy works. And even if it wasn’t, why should her character be judged based on the size of her tits?
