Andrew “Otter Jesus” Gleason Suspended From Twitter Over Mass Shooting Threat

Sometimes you see a guy get banned from Twitter and all you can do is laugh. Don’t get me wrong, I’m for free speech, so I hate to see almost anyone get tossed off social media. But when you threaten to shoot-up a tabletop store...

Zoe Quinn Backs Out of Wikimedia Diversity Conference in Shame

I have a couple things to talk about this evening, starting with our old friend Zoe Quinn. I don’t know where Breitbart got this one from, but I’m very happy they did… The Wikimedia Diversity conference is set to take today, and was originally planning...

How FleetCOMM Damaged Indie Game Crowdfunding (UPDATE: Total Owners Drop by Almost 50%!)

While Illian Slade Villena’s FleetCOMM was technically released on May 24th in the Steam store, any playable content beyond its eight “Chapter 0” tutorials has yet to be seen. Upon completion of the tutorials, initial buyers of the Steam game were met with the promise...

Outed Prostitute Alison Rapp Unloads on “Sex-Negative” Sarkeesian

I’ve had the headline for this post written for 3 days, but things have come up that caused me to put it on the back-burner. I spent a good chunk of time on the Maile Hampton project I did, but I think it worked out...

Why I Like Damsels in Distress

The damsel in distress is one of the most criticized tropes in the modern era. It is considered the ultimate misogyny, and creators often apologize for using it by claiming that the damsel is “strong” and “not a helpless woman,” or by making the damsel match or outclass the male hero in some skill. Creators often avoid this trope to establish their modern, 21st-century street cred.

Well, I’m here to say that I’m a great fan of this supposedly evil trope, no matter how it is done. It pains me to watch creators squirm whenever they’re attacked for writing damsels; they should stand by their work.

“GameDiviner” Paolo Munoz Gives a Final Bizarre Goodbye Rant to #GamerGate

I need to write a lot of stuff before I leave for London later this week, so I had to get in the mood. I figured what better way to do that than to do a post on an old friend-turned-hater? Yes, I’m talking about...

Witcher 3 Dev Lays The Smackdown on Censorship Scold From Gamespot

I wrote a column about The Witcher 3 around this time last year. I told you about how it brought me back into gaming after a decent absence. My missed playtime wasn’t because of some Ben Kuchera-type thing. I wasn’t sick of the industry or...

Anti-Gamer Jonathan McIntosh Is Spouting Jack Thompson Talking Points from 1999

If you’ve read this site over the months (hell, years now), you know that I don’t think much of Jonathan McIntosh. In fact, I’ve showed you how his sympathies lie with Osama bin Laden and lawless rioters. We talked about his past work that attacks...

Alison Rapp Openly Muses About Doxing a “#GamerGate” Photographer

It’s been awhile since we checked in on Alison Rapp and company. In fact, I think the last time was when it was discovered her husband was allegedly taking it up the rear in order to help make her happy. It truly is All in...

Is Zoe Quinn’s Crash Override Breaking the Law by Portraying “Expert” Status?

Crash Override, currently, represents itself as “experts” in terms of issues that fall into either the realm of psychology and/or social work licensing. Does this violate California statute, though? I can’t say, since this is most assuredly not my area of expertise. Also, I haven’t...

Darksydephil (DSPGaming) Allegedly Caught Pleasuring Himself On Stream

Well, I can safely say I never thought I’d be making a post about a YouTube personality pleasuring themselves on stream, but that’s what it’s come to for my life. His name is Darksydephil and he’s apparently been a running joke among the YouTube community...

Nintendo Making a Bigger Push Into Mobile With Animal Crossing & Fire Emblem Apps

It looks like Nintendo is set to jump into the mobile market in a much bigger way soon, as some forms of Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem are on their way to mobile phones… https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/725224236340629504?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw I played Animal Crossing a few years back but I...

Ralph Talks to Social Autopsy’s Candace Owens After Media Attacks: “I’m Not Naive Anymore.”

Quite a lot has changed since we last spoke with Candace Owens, the founder and project leader of Social Autopsy. She’s gotten railroaded by both New York Magazine and The Washington Post. David Futrelle of We Hunted the Mammoth has written several hit pieces on...

Reaction From the Shitposter Who Triggered SJWs at PAX East “Diversity in Gaming” Panel

Almost one year ago to the day, I went to RavenCon here in Richmond, Virginia. I had been promoting my appearance on Twitter all day as a sort of publicity stunt. Would Brianna Wu grant your intrepid editor an interview, I asked, knowing full well...

The Gaming Media is Still Rotten & Their Latest Smear Campaign Against Nintendo Proves It

Is the gaming media Establishment rotten to the core and in need of being destroyed, or is it merely misguided and in the need of guidance, encouragement and dialogue? If you think it’s the latter, you might indeed feel that ethics policies and more disclosure will represent a crucial step forward – if you think the former is the case (like I do) you’ll probably just view that sort of thing as mere window dressing, not representing any sort of REAL change. Disclosures don’t prevent gaming “journalists” from shilling games made by their friends – it just means they disclose it in a throw-away sentence, maybe at the very end of the article. Ethics policies certainly don’t prevent gaming sites from pumping out SJW propaganda.

The Asp In GamerGate’s Bosom That Is Poisoning Us With His Hypocrisy

Guest Editorial by GethN7 As many know, I am revolted by hypocrisy. It’s one of the reasons I’m pro-GamerGate, it one of the reasons I oppose social justice warriors, and its one of the reasons I can look in the mirror and not want to...
