Gamasutra used to be my go to site for industry news. They have really gone down hill in the last four years. I don't even visit it anymore.

The fact that Intel pulled out, is kind of a big deal.

That's a major corporate sponsor were talking about here.

I am really happy to see this happening. GamerGate is a huge deal and should be taken seriously, rather than being dismissed or treated like it is an attack on women or something equally stupid. It is up to gamers to ensure that the gaming media is behaving ethically. For far too long the game media has been behaving in a terrible fashion with no consequences, GamerGate is the first in many steps to seriously change this and bring accountability and transparency back to the gaming media.

Keep up the good work GamerGate folk. This is a major victory, but it is only a small step towards achieving our true goal of transparency and accountability.

There will never be a 100% trustworthy news source, but you now know for a fact of ones which not only have agendas which could go against your interest - in a hobby - but don't even respect you as reader if not a human being. That's unforgivable.

When I was in school, Gamasutra was "The" industry site. Was respected as such also. Sad how things can go.

this is good news. victory will be slow but it will come.

There is no question of "victory" between an open market and a group of idealist looking to subvert it in its apparent entirety, rather its a question of how much damage they're going to wind up doing.

then like every true gamer we will simply respawn.
