Peter Coffin Lulz Fest Continues, Alleged Sockpuppet Outed

OK, I’m back from my trip to the store. I have the extra PS4 Wave Blue controller, and I have seen this week’s Arrow. But while I was away, our old friend Peter Coffin got caught up in some more sockpuppet shenanigans. If you’ll recall,...

CRY MOAR: Nick Denton Whines to Judge About Gawker Intern Lawsuit

As part of my new initiative to put out more content here on the site, I’ve forgone my trip to go pick up this extra controller that I ordered. That’s so I could go ahead and bring you my thoughts on the Gawker news from...

MEDIA STUNT: Deranged Brianna Wu Backing Out of PAX East is Laughable

I just woke up a couple hours ago, so I’m done with my rounds with the GamerGate community, and I met my Twitter quota. I wanted to sound off on something before I took a trip to the store in this fucking snow. I know...

Anti-Gamer Headcase Threatens to Spit on Opponents at GDC

I was just about to go to sleep, but someone pulled me in with another story. Yes, I thought the findom meltdown would be my last effort of the evening/morning, but here we are. I would have probably went ahead and gone to bed, but...

TROUBLE IN PARADISE: SJW “Findom” Goes Into a Funk

Here’s a short follow-up that I’ve had in the can the last couple days. Stuff kept getting in the way, and bumping it. One reason stuff got in the way, is because this story isn’t really that important, in the grand scheme of things. But...

THX ANON: Essay Digs Deep Into Randi Harper’s Blacklist

GUEST POST by Anon During the initial phases of a controversy, the program known as GGAutoBlocker was created under the false pretense of being a tool to combat online harassment. (F2) However the true intention of the tool is not to prevent harassment, but rather create a...

PROTEST TOO MUCH? I Really Riled ‘Em Up With GDC Drug Fest Article

I write a ton of stories here on the site. I write so many, that sometimes it’s hard for me to even remember the details of every one off the top of my head. That’s why I like to pull up a copy of what...

VG247 Founder Goes #FullMcIntosh Over Controversial Petition

OK, my regular pre-writing Twitter session is over now. I’m trying to cut it down to two hours now lol. Speaking of Twitter, if you’ve been on there recently, you’ve probably heard about a petition that developer Mark Kern started up. It takes aim at...

LEGEND IN HIS OWN MIND: Spendthrift Tim Schafer Is Not Worthy of Gamer Support

I’ve been wanting to write a little something about Tim Schafer for a good, long while. Somehow, he’s escaped major scrutiny here on the site. Sure, I’ve mentioned him once or twice, and I’ve certainly lampooned him on Twitter. But we’ve never done an article...

EARLY THOUGHTS: The New 3DS

If you’ve read the site at all the last four or five days, you know that I’ve been trying to get my hands on a New 3DS. Last night, the gaming gods smiled upon me, as I finally located one at a local Toys “R”...

ABC Nightline Ignores Truth Because it’s “In the Weeds”

Over the last few weeks, I’ve gotten to know a neutral named Stephanie Greene. She goes [email protected] Twitter, and is known to be very personable with all sides. Even though her opinions clash with some of our members, she’s gotten along well with GamerGate. As...

Arthur Chu Sinks Even Lower, Calls Out GG for Supporting Rape Victim

I’ve been considering an Arthur Chu follow-up column for a good few weeks. The reason? Even after saying he was done with GamerGate, he’s continued to trash us in the worst ways possible, including trying to tie us to some random trans-teen’s suicide.  I wish...

MIND OF McINTOSH: More America-hate, Paranoid Links, & Anti-Capitalism

If you’ve been reading the site for any serious length of time, then you know that the anti-Americanism of Jonathan McIntosh has been a focus of ours. It has nothing to do with him being left wing. It has to do with his apparent hatred...

How Games Influenced Me

CriticalKelly is by far one of the most unique people I have gotten to know over the last six months. I often find her infuriating, but, oddly enough, I almost just as often find her insightful. She asked me to repost this for her, and...

DOUBLE STANDARDS: Molyneux Gets Grilled, While Anita Escapes Scrutiny

I spent yesterday afternoon working on the new blog I’m going to launch here in a few days. It’s nothing big, just a place for me to post my thoughts on pro wrestling. So if that’s your thing, I’ll be talking more about it in...

BOOM: Master Milo 100% Right to Unload on Brianna Wu

I would have had this written right after the story came out, but I was away from Twitter this morning, so I missed it. I’m also about to try to go find a New 3DS, but before I do, let me fill in any who...
