Andross would be about as plausible as playing as Master Hand, because he’s a giant floating head and a pair of hands. There’s not really any way to make him work as a player character. As for Slippy…
I think she’s adorable, to be honest. :3
It would take an archaeologist to find out.
Either way, Platinum delivered the game they promised Sega and Gearbox did not.
You know, I assumed it was a joke at first, but I can’t even tell anymore. The times we live in…
I’m pretty sure in this case it’s considered a parody, since it’s been modified for the purpose of satire and editorial.
The people on the tech side have actual skills that will make them valuable on the job market. Most of them are likely freelance anyway. Gawker’s structure is overall pretty lean, which is the nature of web development. It’s mostly editorial staff, and those are the people standing the way of reform.
Also, whoever created and keeps crapping up the Kinja system should probably be rethinking their career anyway.
The tolerance capital of the world, folks!
Obviously he’s recommending them based on personal experience!
One was made by Sega, and the other was made by a studio who stole money from Sega. And they got away with it thanks to their friends in the press, who vowed to drop a PR nuke on Sega if they took legal action against their buddies over at Gearbox.
Also, Creative Assembly >>>>>>> Gearbox. Just thought I should their that in there.

My own brother (who is liberal, and working in the games industry) insists that it’s all about harassing Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian and defending sexism, and whenever I try to redirect the discussion to the actual issues he always tries to bait me into arguing about Anita and sexism. I’ve decided that I’m not even going to talk to him about it anymore until we have victory.
The only way Gawker can stop hemorrhaging money is if they stop writing hateful bullshit about their audience. That will probably happen around the same time that Zoe Quinn becomes a nun.
They deserve this though. They’ve said things a million times worse about us than what this image shows them as (crybabies), and they could have turned back ages ago. They are well past the point of no return. They could have apologized before the discipline rained down on them, but they continued to badger us and show no remorse for their behavior. It’s too late for them, and now they get to see what rubbing it in feels like on the receiving end.

Given that prior to launching Anita’a career, John McIntosh’s greatest achievement was making a remixed Donald Duck cartoon making fun of Glenn Beck, you’d think the two of then would be more appreciative of /v/’s use of “transformative media.”
I too am skeptical of Anita ever going through with a format where she will be asked real questions by an opponent and she can’t read her answers from a script. I would love to so her and Sommers have an actual discussion about the issues, though I know enough about Anita to know that there’s a strong possibility that she’ll be a no show.
It really does amaze me what an emotional investment these people have in a crappy internet tabloid.
And here I’m still driving a ’98 corolla…
>mrw there are actually people who use his crappy website
Hey Joss, just because I enjoy some of your shows and movies doesn’t mean I can’t still think you are an asshole.
For many years I have gotten used to Hollywood being full of assholes with bizarre and even dangerous political ideologies, and Joss Whedon is no exception. None of his recent behavior surprises me because I’ve always known he’s a far left-wing blowhard. Fortunately, for the most part he keeps it out of his work as a professional, but if he expects me to think his opinion on Gamer Gate is worth a rat’s ass to me just because he made Firefly then he’s out of luck.
