"That just happened!"

Comments

@dmeador:

Who's putting words in whose mouth again? I didn't see me saying that anyone CAN'T dress how they want if they didn't possess strong will and determination. I didn't even imply that! You're trying to find a way to incriminate something I said...why, exactly? Do you think women SHOULDN'T be allowed to dress however they want without the morality police knocking on their proverbial door? Hey, you implied that I said something! How does it f... #1.1.33

So, let me see if I got this straight. Females can't CHOOSE to use the freedoms they are given to want to bare their midriff, or be sexy or whatnot? Please tell me we're not shoving morality down throats here. We should tell females, then, that it's not okay to let their hair down and just be themselves if being themselves means showing off? If a female is strong willed and smart, then she can dress however the hell she WANTS to be dressed, and any author has the right to show tha... #1.1.19

Umm...some women LIKE to dress sexy. Some women feel liberated by being able to show skin. Why is that a bad thing? If you don't like that women have that kind of freedom, move to a country where women would KILL to have that kind of freedom...even for one day! #5

You do realize that it's not JUST the comic that was the issue here, right? It was their response to the criticism about it that got all sorts of fucked up. THAT'S where the issue is lying here. And then they bring it back up NOW! #2.3

You gotta be shitting me! They are going to make this sort of controversy AGAIN?

2010 brought us the Dickwolves, 2012 had them making an utter MESS out of how they treated Jessica Nigiri, and now THIS year, they bring the Dickwolves back. And then they brag about MAKING the controversies.

And...this will get either ignored or excused because we either like it, don't mind it, or just don't care enough to say enough is enough. Want bad treatment again... #2

The best way to do that is to do it yourself, to be honest. I don't mean that to sound racist or anything like that, but if you think there is a void that you think needs to be filled, and you think you have what it takes, then start making videos. Get a good gaming rig, good video editing software (Vegas or Premiere preferred), a good mic, and get to recording yourself making games and commentary. The main thing is that you'll find out that it takes a good bit of time to get the take... #5

And how many reviewers down vote games with female leads just because it's a female lead? Controls, graphics, sound, fun factor: none of that matters to the score of a game when a female is suddenly a lead?

And if a female ISN'T playable, does that automatically mean the females aren't tough and self-sufficient?

But then again, this story was not about the message Anita is sending, it's about a possible conspiracy. If this really was going o... #1.1.2

Uh oh!

And what is this with people thinking is wrong to discredit someone? If the evidence is clearly there that someone can be discredited, then by all means, tell us your opinion. Why has Anita become that much of an invincible person anymore? #3

And this is why I've been saying that what Anita Sarkeesian has done is damaging to this whole debate. Her hit pieces are nothing more than that, and they only ignite flame wars rather than honest discussion, and they then create things like controversies that are not there but become too overblown anyway. One side then overreaches to find absolutely ANYTHING to call sexism in gaming, while the other side will never want to talk about it because they believe that people like Anita and her... #4

Would put it in direct contention with COD and GTA5, along with the XBO and PS4 launches, and FF13-3 is not that far off from that proposed date.

Seems SE is playing dangerously with that release date! I LIKE IT! #6

Hey, Kotaku and Pat Robertson! Two "outlets" that deserve each other! #16

It would be if you believed a lot of the naysayers about it. It had the same amount of exploration with clever places to hide things, had some nice melee moves that were a nice change of pace for a Metroid game (it was developed in part by Team Ninja, so think Ninja Gaiden-esque techniques, though they don't take over the combat system in the game), and a few bosses were very well done (there's a final boss after the credits roll that I won't spoil in case you haven't played i... #7.1

Only Sakamoto was also responsible for Super Metroid, one of the best games of all time. Funny that we forget that fact when talking about MOM! #5

I think you would have to go back to my feelings about MGS2 and how MGS3 changed my opinions about the former game. Foundations need to happen somewhere.

As for my "problems" with Hale, I have none. As I said, I adore her work. I'm also, however, fine with new talent also being put in the limelight, and Martin is fine. Do go watch "For Patrick". It's up on Vimeo, and it's worth a peek. There's not a lot of dialogue in there, but it tells a... #1.1

And you just proved WHY we have a long way to go? How can we even discuss this maturely if we keep having trolls constantly hijacking this debate like this? #2.2.1

The problem that Sarkeesian has is that she uses confirmation bias a LOT in the videos (as in, it's painfully obvious she's doing so), and then tries so hard to cover up that she goes into that weird catch-22 area where it's too hard to criticize her style without someone saying "well, she brought it up, so she gets a pass" or calling everyone concern trolls.

And that's the problem everyone of her supporters seem to have. They cannot see any criticis... #2.1

I don't think it'll be as troublesome as before because it seems like each system has about the same architecture around the board as opposed to what it was like with the PS3 and X360 where you had vastly different ways of how they did their job. Both systems will use Blu Ray, which is a definite plus to making that happen. So you might not see things cut or gimped for that reason. I didn't see as much concern over things this time. First parties should make the console exclusives... #5

Well, you have to think about install rates right now. How many people will want to jump to the next gen right away, or will wait to see where the pendulum swings. Remember that GTA5 is not coming out on next gen consoles (at least there's no announcement about it coming out for the PS4 or XBO yet). So yeah, as long as people are not willing to go next gen yet, they'll be a market for the PS3 (and 360, for that matter, though I bet more for the PS3 than 360). #10

This is Nintendo shooting itself in the foot here, and it seems like they seem to be somewhat scared of disastrous results because of the WiiU's troubles. They first decided to piggyback let's plays that are on YouTube (that have a ton of legal gray area around if they can actually monetize what they say they can), and now this.

I don't know. I think this is more of Nintendo taking desperate measures during desperate times. Sad thing is, I don't want to see Ni... #12
