Sick of hearing about Fish, Quinn, and all these other circus acts. These people are like the WWE characters (known for antics not so much for actual fights). They are getting attention for things OTHER than creating actual games. Sick of these people.
just let this die already!!!
Sadly, its not going to go away anytime soon, maybe things would be worse if it did, because its the worst example of what commonly is going on within gaming journalism. That being its become more of a sub-culture rather than a sub-industry. With developers publishers and the people who are suppose to be reporting on them so intertwined that direct and indirect manipulation is going on which does gamers no good. Yes, we need to stop talking about Quinn and looking at those around her. The game journalist who believe themselves to be rockstars who don't seem to be doing their actual jobs.
This cannot just DIE. This has to be resolved. The people fighting are fighting for a resolution. For actions to be taken against those that have soiled gaming journalism. Letting it "die" is what Kotaku want. They want it to die so then 1: they don't have to punish any of their staff, and 2: they can then continue to act as they always have without a care in the world. Heads. Have. To. Roll. This is one controversy that Kotaku can't sweep under the carpet.
I never got why websites did these mini text "conversations" when it would be better as like a podcast or even an audio file on a YouTube embed with a still image or whatever. Especially since the conversation is between random internet usernames such as "Wastelander75", "Gmandam", "Baronfang", and so on... lol.
Yeah, I really don't think people want to hear me and my "Suthurn Te-wang" on a podcast. Hell even I don't like listening to me.
Phil Fish. What a ****. Btw that rhymes with runt.
The image looks like he is in prison.
What's funny is the community wants this to go away, but its the communities fault that it got so out of control.
