"HAHA, Public enemy of butthurt fannies. "


OK. There is a reason why I took a little longer to submit my blog for approval. I wanted to gather my thoughts on the subject and began to look over that contentious article which caused such an uproar. Thankfully, I wrote out all the of the comments I found disheartening before they were considered "bad language" or "offensive" and re-read them to try and get my head around that sort of thinking. I wrote out quite a bit and was almost finished with writing it until I fou... #2.1.3

It's a bit of a pity. Do you know what the really ironic thing is about this GaymerCon controversy? The ignorant comments have actually indirectly validated the need for this conference to exist! #75.1

I wouldn't call these particular people "journalists" in the traditional sense, but they are very passionate when it comes to gaming.

I found this fellow called MrBtongue on youtube who has an interesting analytical style when it comes to things that he feels passionate about. His output is mildly slow, but he does make interesting videos. Not to mention he also has the intellect to back up his points.

@ThatKanadianKid There are good sites out there, but they are overwhelmed by various start-up sites who fish for hits or utter nonsense articles that rile up fanboys of either side. I read Forbes if I want some game news even though it's primarily a business site. I also keep an eye out for other websites that have interesting content to share, but those are too little compared to the bile that is spat out on a regular basis.

@Hicken YOU HYPOCRITE! Just kidding. You'... #3.3

Gaming journalism is a utter joke and will only improve if gamers collectively will it. But they won't. #3

Interesting article. #1

Wow. Where do I even start with this? I guess I'll take it quote by quote.

"Sorry, but gay people freak me out, the thought of two men kissing sickens me, just like bestiality or pedophilia (both of which are also found in nature)"

Ah yes. Twisting the nature argument to fit your world view is rather unbecoming. Whether something is natural or unnatural has no bearing on the ethics or the rights and wrongs within a modern democratic society wha... #70.2

"If being gay is so normal u wouldn't need all these special events."

Works both ways. If being a gamer/trekker/brony is so normal, you wouldn't need all these conventions whatsoever.

I find this point of view interesting. You surely must give a bit of a damn if you're commenting on what you believe to be a flagrant display of homosexuality or else you would've never commented in the first place. I am not a fan of conventions in gen... #14.2

The thing is with this guy is that he speaks his mind and he speaks to the fans, even the incredibly stupid ones. Be grateful that someone that has done some great things in the industry is sharing his opinion.

He is living the dream. Making the games that he wants to make and saying whatever he wants to say, regardless of the butthurt feelings that it might cause. #94

Put it this way. If male fans of the My Little Pony show can have a conference or a "Bronycon"; what is the problem with gay gamers having a conference? Also, the article is mildly incendiary.

Quote from article: "Batman, Spiderman, Thor and The Hulk making out is not something I want to witness (or anyone should have to witness unless they want their childhood ruined), and I think the majority of gamers think this is too much as well."

Good job guys! All your responses to this "news" is delicious.

Definitely shows the darker, seedier side of retro gaming and how anyone who is interested in collecting video games should be mindful of what they are getting themselves into.

Here's a link to the NeoGeo forum where the excrement has surely hit the fan.

"A bigger boy told me to do it." is not an excuse. If you overprice your games, no-one will buy them and you will walk the merry road to bankruptcy. They have no-one to blame but themselves for the situation they currently find themselves in. #11.1.1

What's worse is those fools took down Gamestation as well. As soon as Game took them over; gone were the days you could jump in and get a decent bargain and they began to over price for new games on launch day such as Fifa or COD. Why bother when you can get your launch game on launch day on Amazon cheaper than in retail stores? #11

Okay. They are laying off SWTOR staff. The estimates of the development budget for the MMO is between $200-$300 million with marketing boosting it to up to $500 million. There is about a million subscribers, not counting all the various dead accounts that haven't been used. No matter how many people switch over to the Free2play model; there is no way that they will break even.

Yeah. It's not even a failure but an absolute catastrophe for EA. To deny this is to deny re... #7

Money is tight now thanks to the economy. People just don't have the cash to buy games as much as they used to and will only wait for established games like GTA V or COD. #5

To get a publisher like Square Enix on board is a big deal for Ouya. #4

It isn't actually outwith the realms of possibility. XBL indie has got many clones of popular games like Minecraft and there is even a couple of Manic Miner clones as well. #2.2

I wasn't very big on FF7 if I'm honest but I can understand why people really liked it because it was a game changer in terms of how JRPGS were represented. Whether or not that was a good thing is another story. #12

"A legend is nothing but fiction. Someone tells it, someone else remembers, everybody passes it on."

Solid Snake

Considering that Solid Snake's name precedes him and he didn't buy into the mythos that surrounded his reputation; it's not that big of a stretch to surmise that Twin Snakes was an over exaggerated take on the events that took place. Hence, it can't be canon to the rest of the Metal Gear series since it's about a Solid... #39.1.1
