#GamerGate: ‘All Buyers On Desura Will Be Treated Equally’ States Desura

One Angry Gamer "A flurry of emotions went ripping through the ranks of the consumer revolt known as #GamerGate when the developer of the game I Get This Call Every Day, David S. Gallant, opted to prevent those supporting #GamerGate from receiving a Steam key if they paid for the game outside of Steam. Alternatively, everyone else who purchased the game outside of Steam will receive a Steam key. The digital distribution outlet, Desura, was not pleased with David S. Gallant’s actions."

The story is too old to be commented.

"Mysogonerds"

That's very good. Did you say that?

It's perfect.

Nah, I recall someone else seriously saying that. I can't remember who, but at the very least, it rolls off the tongue. xD

At least "Desura" (whatever that is), have the decency of treating human beings as human beings. Glad there are people out there that aren't as vile as David S. Gallant.

Wow, really?

I'd have hoped developers would at least do their research before making such stupid decisions...though in respect if he HAD done his homework and still come to that conclusion, it would make him look even more stupid.

Remember that what #GamerGate is fighting against is corruption and collusion in gaming "journalism". And who are they colluding with? Tan tan tan... video game developers.

Now I'm not saying that David is colluding but a lot of developers are afraid of the repercussions that associating with #GamerGate could cause to their careers.

He's not colluding. His game was talked about for one day, made it's sales, then everyone moved on. He's just using GG as a way to promote his game and himself. This game released 2 years ago, and I'd be surprised if the masses ever heard of it, or him.

If he was professional he wouldn't of bothered to call out GG. His customers are his customers regardless of their affiliations, and they should be treated as such. IF he had problems with an individual being an actual harasser he could have called them out, but whatever.
