The whole “Self-defense promotes rape,” debate should surprise me, but sadly it doesn’t.
That would be awful. It’d be like selling cans of mace that shoot in the opposite direction
“Ah come on, Nathan, don’t ya wanna rev up your Harley?”
Why not just play the lottery or short sell stock on the stock market? There are much easier ways to strike it rich with probability powers.
SJWs actually believe their bullshit. Buzzfeed just latches onto whatever is trendy online and moves onto another host once they’ve sucked it dry.
He thought it was trivial and previous controversies like that guy getting fired for panning Kane and Lynch should have clued everyone into the fact that game journalism has no integrity. He sides with the anti-SJW side more though since they’re less pro-censorship, but thought that both sides had their crazies who go too far.
Checked Yahtzee’s twitter, he’s said absolutely nothing about this. He strikes me as someone who just does his vids, cashes his checks, and does whatever. He’s probably fine, but the rest of the Escapist is pretty much shit, especially moviebob who was seriously giving Phil Fish a run for his money for biggest Pro-Zoe asshole on twitter.
Compared to a lot of other game journalists who just want to blame everyone but themselves for this controversy, at least he’s trying to see things both ways. More than what I can say about some of the other Escapist contributors.
It takes a childish person to make things for childish people.
Parody of a Tom Preston comic:
I remember someone claiming that she has depression, and her actions are the result of self-destructive behavior. Unless she verifies it herself, I’m not convinced (and even if she was, it still wouldn’t excuse her behavior if she was like Page and knew she had a problem but was avoiding seeking help).
It’s at 39 now. Let’s hope it goes up to 69.

Based on some of the gallery pics, I think everyone would rather have Foxy’s garlic knot if you catch my drift.

Look at all the little Kotaku lapdogs sit up and beg for their master. Such good boys, yes they are, yes they are!
“Some speculated the veto was in response to Democrat Rosemary Lehmberg’s refusal to resign as head of the department after being convicted of driving under the influence.”
The irony is that the people condemning this would welcome this being done in Ferguson, Missouri, as people like DAs and police are almost impossible to fire and whistle blowers usually get punished harder than the people who actually did bad things.
Don’t link to them directly, that gives them hits that put them higher on Google. Here’s the Do Not Link version.
It’s true that games journalism has always been seen as suspect at best, but there’s been very little evidence of the corruption or conflict of interest. When there is, the game journalists usually find a way to excuse it or avoid talking about it. So when people accused scores of being fixed or game journalists having an agenda, it just got seen as fanboys being butthurt their game didn’t get a 10/10.
Here, the screencaps posted by the boyfriend and the mass takedown of anything related to Zoe Quinn are probably some of the most damning proof of journalists and developers colluding I can remember.
“Saturn Devouring His Sons” would be a good candidate.
