hey they're just spreading the Christmas cheer I actually like seeing these.

If there's no news happening, why don't you just make some stuff up and report it?

Re: GameTap Holiday Wishes...

It was a shock today when we found out that EA executives joined in a pile naked reenacting South Park Episode 118 'Goobacks'.  The cause of these actions seem to be them trying to gain more attention as people are still pissed off at them for SecuROM.  Local police quickly apprehended the executives and arrested them for public indecency, and can be imprisoned for up to 2 years.

In other news, Sony and Microsoft have went belly up, and are filing for bankruptcy.  Rumors quickly started that SEGA is going to make a new console now that Nintendo is the only competitor.

Remaining employees at EA decided to try to help their image after their executives typical disgraceful acts, and made Spore and Madden 09 free to everyone online for download at EA's online store.

With the activity at EA, Ubisoft and Activision decided to compete with them by making Prince of Persia and Azada 2 free online, respectively.  Problem is, hardly anyone knows what the hell Azada 2 is, and are wondering what the hell.

Meanwhile, 4 children went to the back of a Walmart in Maine today and broke a mirror to destroy the Walmart store, successfully I might add.  This form of violence was said to be caused by GTA.  Government appointed 'Experts' say they can prove GTA is the cause, though no logical human can even consider the fact from the bullshit foaming out of their mouths.

In Australia, the government allowed an R18 rating, then 5 minutes later abolished it.  Gamers protested, and burned down government buildings.  US 'experts' believe this was caused by GTA as well.

G4TV reports that these 'experts' are fucking morons, and will have more on this story on Monday in the Loop.

A violent killing happened in Germany, US 'experts' once again blame it on GTA.  German police blame it on abusive  and neglectful parents that were not part of their children's lives.  When investigating the parents, they found illegal substances on them, and have been put in jail with their teen sons.

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
ZippyDSMleeI do not hate them jsut think its mostly hyperlobe.08/29/2014 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - I'd say that's likely. From my experience, most who have a problem with Sarkeesian's videos either want to hate them in the first place (for whatever reason) or honestly misunderstand what they're about and what they're saying.08/29/2014 - 3:16pm
james_fudgeWe appreciate your support :)08/29/2014 - 2:55pm
TechnogeekIt gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, the gaming community is not statistically indistinguishable from consisting entirely of people that your average Xbox Live caricature would look at and go "maybe you should tone it down a little bit".08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
TechnogeekI just want to say that while I've disagreed with the staff of this site on several occasions, it's still good to see that they're not automatically dismissing Anita's videos as a "misandrist scam" or whatever the preferred dismissive term is these days.08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, So you can't find even one?08/29/2014 - 1:04pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Right because shes prefect and never exaggerates... *rolls eyes*08/29/2014 - 12:53pm
SleakerAnd honestly, nearly all of the games she references, or images she depicts I've always cringed at and wondered why they were included in games to begin with, from pinups through explicit sexual depictions or direct abuse. I think it's cheap storytelling.08/29/2014 - 12:35pm
Sleaker@AE - aren't most people fundamentally misunderstanding her at this point? haha.. On a related note I think a lot of the backlash is coming from males that think she is telling them their 'Generic Male Fantasy' is bad and wrong.08/29/2014 - 12:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd no, I don't think the female community would be upset over the performance of a case study in and of itself. Possibly the mostivations behind such a study, the methodology or conclusions but not the mere idea of a case study.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
Andrew EisenAmusingly, these videos aren't saying you can't/shouldn't use tropes or that sexual representations are inherently problematic so those are very silly things to have a problem with and indicate a fundamental misunderstanding of the series.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
SleakerDo you think the female community would get extremely angry over a male doing a case study on the negative impact of sex-novels and their unrealistic depiction of males and how widespread they are in american culture?08/29/2014 - 12:25pm
SleakerThe other thing that people might find problematic is that they see no problem with sexual representations of females (or males) in games. And realistically, why is there anything wrong with sexual representations in fiction?08/29/2014 - 12:24pm
SleakerTo even discuss or bring up these issues at a cultural level to begin with. Going straight for games to many probably feels like a huge overstepping given that it's interactive story in many cases, and when you're telling a story why can't you use tropes.08/29/2014 - 12:21pm
