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 I’ve written if I’m on a livestream discussing it. It helps to be refreshed. I move from story to story so fast, that (except for the very biggest stories) I just leave most of my work in the past and focus on what’s ahead of me. Well, a certain post I wrote a couple weeks ago still has people buzzing. They won’t let it go and I’m trying to figure out why.
All I did was, lay out a bunch of examples of high profile people talking about going to the GDC in order to meet up and get fucked up. There’s nothing wrong with that, necessarily. I just didn’t think it was very professional to advertise it on Twitter. I’m certainly not anti-drug. That’s laughable. I just don’t think these guys are presenting a good face for the industry. I don’t see Wall Street guys tweeting with their real names and talking about meeting up for a drug party. Why should it be any different for these journos and devs? I’ve yet to see a compelling rebuttal. But what I have seen, is a lot of crying by the usual suspects:

That’s only a small sampling of the butthurt, believe me. I’m still getting shit to this very day. Damion Schubert even wrote a whole fucking column about it. I guess I must be onto something, is all I can figure. Maybe there’s even more smoke here than I originally thought. Because I can’t see any other reason to spend so much time doing PR against what I wrote. Raph Koster spent a whole week down in my comment section, for fuck’s sake lol.
So, if you have any more Tales From GDC, send them to [email protected]. Hell, send any tips you have there period. Comments and critiques are always welcome as well. I’m about to go run some errands. I’ll be back tonight with more GamerGate, and some info on my new wrestling blog (if you’re into that sort of thing lol). I also didn’t have much time to proofread this, so don’t kill me too badly down below.
