Very well written article. Sums up a lot of the current feelings gamers have about this whole situation and how the gaming press needs to seriously clean up their act. #3
After reading what they would be investigated for, I was blown away for a second. I knew Phil Fish sunk low, but racketeering? Damn! Watch out gaming media. Your tactics are gonna come and bite you back. #1.1.5
This whole situation has just exploded. Starting all the way back from Sarkeesian's misinformed and judgmental Tropes vs Women series to the latest scandals with Polygon, Kotaku, and Zoe Quinn, this has literally become an "us vs them" debate. It's gamers vs the gaming media.

Now that all of this has come out about reviewers "getting personal" with game developers and those same people turning the situation around on us (the gamers) has only turned... #2.3
Anita is a fraud and that has been proven through a video taken in her days in college. She has amassed her legion of yes-men in an attempt to capitalize on the subject of women in and with video games. Her Kickstarter was only successful because she managed to upset the immature and ignorant of the gaming community with sympathizers funding her campaign. Those gamers who targeted her do not represent everyone in the gaming community and to think that is asinine. I refuse to accept a shared i... #26
What the hell? Okay, I'm taking away two glaring things out of this article. One, if the developer is going to go through the trouble of using food to cover up the naughty bits of its female characters, then they are trying way too hard to give out fan service and are more so diverting to virtual porn at this point. Two, which gamers have mentioned, this game looks like it belongs in the sixth generation of consoles. This is the best they can muster at D3 Publisher? Seriously?! D3...what... #53
Denying gamers access to services they use (whether it's paid or not) does not make us sympathizers to whatever concocted cause these hackers fight for. We know that they not only attack video game services, but participate in every example the author shared of people being victimized is all very true. Most people don't deserve the kind of crap they endure from scammers, hackers, and criminals, but they are just as easily overwhelmed by the experience. These juvenile and wannabe crusa... #7
Sigh. An inconvenience to be sure, but still quite annoying. It's like these hackers have nothing better to do with their time than temporarily block gamers' ability to sign in to their online accounts. #1.10
Huh. That's interesting. I did wonder how they came up with the name for this fake developer. Now I know. #12
Not to take a word intentionally from the title, but this got ugly quick. I like TB. I think he is more often than not on point with most subjects and his previews/reviews are very informative, but this whole situation shows how volatile Twitter has become.

I'm surprised that so many indie developers jumped down his throat despite the fact that TB didn't have an opinion on the situation whatsoever. He never criticized or voiced anything critical toward Zoe Quinn, yet... #27
It's not right I tell ya. I loved those franchises and Activision pulverized them into the ground. Crash is practically nonexistent and Spyro is just an accessory in Skylanders. I will always remember them in their golden days back when they first debuted.

I think Sweet Tooth would be a great addition for the Playstation exclusive. I don't know who Xbox could get, though. Maybe Fulgore from Killer Instinct? As for third-party characters, I'm up for Jason Voorhees and maybe even Terminator to make an appearance. #4
I agree. The resentment is still there. This whole thing could have been handled better by the companies, but it wasn't.

Fans just need to dial back the rage and not threaten anyone. People can be upset and angry and I don't blame them, but no good comes from being as aggressive as some people have been behaving. #3.1
"I think that's when I nearly lost it. Like you said, they just finished unveiling Rise of the Tomb Raider as an Xbox Exclusive, made no mention that it was coming to other platforms and they had the audacity to tell us this?"

That they did. They also had the audacity to sugarcoat this deal by mentioning of the two games that will be and are available. It's kind of like someone trying to downplay a scratch they made on your glasses even though it is incredib... #2.1
Everything you said about Microsoft not being at fault for the deal, Tomb Raider being a success, and Square Enix being at fault is very true. Microsoft is looking for games to get whatever advantage they can get. Although, I agree with the growing sentiment that Microsoft should be focusing on first party operations than brokering deals with timed exclusives. If they have the money to get timed exclusivity deals, then they can devote said resources to first party support.

That was a cool thing of them to do. I'm glad they have helped raise awareness for ALS. #8
I wouldn't be able to trust myself by attempting this. I have taken wood shop classes and I'm confident in my ability to make a bird house, but sand down my console? Yeah, I'm not that confident in myself to make it look good. Just some good old dusting and elbow grease for me when cleaning my consoles.

XD #10.3
This guy just can't stop. I seriously don't know why people bother with Phil Fish anymore. He up and quit the industry over a Twitter feud. Before even that, he never once conducted himself in a professional manner to either his colleagues or consumers. Fez 2 is not happening and I think gamers could care less. Phil Fish should stay off of Twitter. #15
Wow. With the popularity of Minecraft and it having a convention be cancelled at the last minute, it's just a shame. Reading through it, though, I really hope this wasn't a scam. Five hundred thousand dollars from who knows how many buyers and they won't get refunds. Either these people in charge of the event promise what they were going to deliver or they should prepare for a lawsuit. #4
Hm, I don't know. Horner from Commando? I think he most likely just quoting from the movie. I wouldn't read too much into this Tweet. If I had to guess of a particular Arnold character to appear, it would have to be Terminator. Mainly because Orion Pictures (who made Terminator) was once owned by Warner Bros. #29
I'm glad that Angry Joe finally got a chance to experience what many feel (including myself) was the 2013 Game of the Year. The Last of Us is a must have if you have a PS3 or PS4. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not having this game for either system. #30
