I guess now you people can see what it feels like when you have been doing it for hundreds of years, to this day.
It’s okay to sell it for money, it’s not okay to sell it for money and claim ‘it isn’t for the money’.
I read the link, they’re claiming that terrorists’ (claimed some 45k lives in last 30 years) propaganda channel was ‘censored’ due to some background deals and compare that to gaming journalism.
Just whoa, how deranged can one be to make such an outrageous comparison. How the heck can one even propose somebody that ZQ banging somebody for score is the same with governments trying to silence terrorists who send suicide bombers into malls?
Talking out of their asses there, it’s well-known that Denmark let the mouthpiece of NATO-acknowledged terrorist organization PKK that is Roj TV operate freely in their borders for many years, doing propaganda against another NATO ally. It’s akin to a NATO country letting Al Qaeda or ISIS operate a TV station in its borders. So it’s free press to let terrorists do propaganda then?
Games and people getting killed by terrorists aren’t the same thing, don’t mix them up or compare. Don’t use those who do in this struggle.
If I got 1,75b$ for a one-hit wonder studio that I had, I certainly wouldn’t write a WoT to tell I’m leaving for sentimental reasons.
Obama said it best: He’s a jackass.
Not that I’m buying all those conspiracy theories myself but rejecting them out of the assumption that US government would never do false flag operations for the sake of critical global interests (petroleum trade that makes the world revolve in this century) is naivety. The goal wouldn’t be ‘killing countless civilians in another country’, it’d be for the benefit of 320+ million US citizens still alive.
Hungry Joe is already on their side, he explicitly defended Sarkesian and called GG overblown bullshit. We got the message loud and clear.
As much as I’m fed up with agenda-pushing in gaming journalism, Japan currently is also going through a turbulence regarding womens’ rights. Prime Minister realized that he both needs the women working but also as mothers to be able to keep the country’s workforce self-sustainable. He’s trying to promote women in higher positions, prevent sexism and sexual harassment. It seems Japan needs some progress and will be going through just that soon.
That comparison is unfair to Armstrong IMO, he at least did something noteworthy even with under-handed methods. Zoe is practically a nobody, with the literal meaning of the word.
Funny thing is that apparently gamers from all around the world got ‘fooled’ at the same time. Heck, not even superpowers can manage to get support from everybody at the same time like this. 4chan to replace CIA?
They’re practically England of Asia and their navy is the backbone of their military, both historically and currently. They built the biggest battleships ever, Yamato-class. (the one that you mentioned)
He supported Sarkesian, what did you expect? Hungry Joe is clueless as usual.
Best character of the show!
Too edgy for Bleach but not too edgy for Death Note? Oh well..
Kinda looks like a zombified burger.
How is this ‘rekt’ anyway? All I see is a dumbass being mean for no reason.
In the meanwhile, ‘journalist’ tried to enter Schumacher’s hospital room dressed as a priest..
It’s not rape if you have a press card!
It’s the other way around for me, oftentimes I realize that I skipped to the next word already. Big trouble on tablets/phones.
If you got to 80 or 2000 years old in a dangerous line of business, chances are you’re a BAMF to begin with.
Apparently they needed to lay off some staff because of downsizing, good thing that they got rid of SJWs in the process.
Though their new freelance writers are also kinda like that. One gave Dead Rising 3 a score of 3 because it was sexist and another gave Akiba Strip a 4 because ‘he was uncomfortable with stripping people’.
It’s like GS employing my pacifist uncle reviewing CoD Ghosts and him giving a 2/10, saying he’s not comfortable with shooting people. Why the heck do you review it then?!
Gamespot missed the bullet by inches since they fired Carolyn Petit and other agenda-pushers on their site just last month. There’s NO WAY Petit would have avoided joining all this. She was the highest-profile mouthpiece of “there’s misogyny/homophobia in this game” articles and reviews.
You ever saw that NSFW button? It’s there for a reason.
I doubt it works like that. Every merciless fundamentalist nutjob all over the Earth will be flocking to their sides merely because they’re the cutting edge in extremism. It might be a much smaller population they’re appealing to, but those are the ones that would be willing to live and die by the sword in the first place.
If there’s any good to come out of this, they make an enemy of everyone else and spur them to action. They’re going all out, all their chips on the table. It’s up to the people to rise to the challenge make them lose all as soon as possible.
