TRIGGERED BY THE TITTIES: CliffyB Sets SJWs Off With Busty Asuka Mousepad

As some of you may recall, I was pretty tough on Cliff Bleszinski a few weeks back. After tonight, I find myself reconsidering that burn a little bit. Why? Because I just had a fun time laughing my ass off at SJWs thanks to CliffyB and...

Kamiya Trashes Mighty No. 9, Calls It a “Copy” & “Insult to Old Home” Capcom

COWARDS: SJWs Refusal To Show For Airplay Tells You All You Need to Know

You know what’s funny? I’ve never thought much of the upcoming SPJ Airplay event (Society of Professional Journalists. They make the ethics guidelines). Well, I mean I have, but those thoughts were along the lines of “this doesn’t matter, why waste time on it?” I...

NeoGAF’s Malka: The Definition of a Sleazebag

Last week, the owner of NeoGAF, Tyler Malka, decided it was a good time to throw Anita Sarkeesian under the bus. As you know, I’m no fan of Anita’s. She’s a fraud, and every time I see her face it makes me ill. Fakery has...

Vavra Sits Down With Stephen Totilo For a Very Interesting Interview

Speaking of Kotaku, they just ran a fascinating interview with Daniel Vavra of Warhourse Studios. I’m in the middle of playing Arkham Knight (finally got it on PS4), but I got most of the way through the interview. It’s a great read. I’ll come back...

Kotaku’s Klepek Has Some Explaining to Do About Lack of Disclosure

I was browsing the relevant GamerGate feeds looking for news today, when I saw several stories to write up. One of them includes Tyler Malka, but I’m going to write a longer piece on his recent evolution later. I might even make a video to...

Good morning everyone! I missed the evening shift yet again last night, but you can blame that on Geralt and sleep. But I plan on filling up the pages today, because I have a lot to say. Let’s start off with a news medley though,...

IGN Sinks Further Into the Abyss, Insults Nintendo Dev With Gender Politics Question

I saw this story about IGN last night, but it’s really making the rounds this morning. So let’s go ahead and lay it out. Earlier this year, it looked like IGN had gotten the message about our consumer revolt. But recently, they’ve slid into the...

BURNED OUT: Leigh Begs Media to Stop Talking About GamerGate

Yesterday, Leigh Alexander came out and said that the media should stop talking about GamerGate. She got really worked up about it, too. She seemed to be frustrated that almost a year later, the group that smashed her career and exposed her abhorrent behavior is...
