“I’m glad you guys are enjoying the shirt thing, but I still don’t see how that helps gamergate.”
“A common enemy rallies people together.”
“Guy who started the shitstorm wrote a gamers are dead article for Polygon and was on GJP.”
“The “gamergate is just harassing women!” narrative is literally the only thing keeping us from steamrolling the journolists. If it wasn’t for that we would have one in the first month. The more people who are redpilled about SJWs being a cancer who just like to bully and control people, the less powerful that narrative becomes because normal people won’t believe it anymore.
Once that narrative falls apart, we automatically win. People will look at all the evidence we’ve uncovered and pay attention to it. Shitstorm is indirectly helping us because normalfags are realizing how insane SJWs really are.”

“MOVEMENT Is a group of people who are being organized around a group of leaders who work to bring their viewpoint to the mainstream.
REVOLT Is when lots of people come to conclusion that things are bad and start acting against it.”
“indie dev here
first of all, you need to learn a programing language, doesn’t matter which, unless you go for something extra hipster there will be no probs
I recomend Java or C# because they are easier than C++
Then you need a GAMEPLAY idea, you dont start a game with a PLOT or STORY, unless you are making a walking simulator, your game need to be engaging and fun
No one gives a shit about assets and placeholders if the game is fun, hell look at Dwarf Fortress, so artists are useless (unless they are making music, music is important)”
“In terms of piracy, there’s generally three groups:
>People who will pirate out of convenience
These are people who will pirate not because they necessarily want to or need to, but because it’s free and (historically) has been more convenient than actually buying games. Steam’s increasing mainstream presence is lowering this group considerably. DRM prevents piracy for this group which in turn pressures them to buy. They WANT the game and they’re willing to buy it, they’re just happy to pirate if it’s available.
>People who are interested, but unwilling to commit
Piracy is a net neutral here. Some might purchase if the DRM holds up long enough, some might purchase only after being influenced by a likeminded friend or after pirating the game themselves. DRM that holds a week or so generally gets a fair share of both.
>People who are disinterested or incapable of buying
Not lost sales at all. They’re unwilling or incapable of buying the game. These people can serve as positive or negative word of mouth, depending.
Uncrackable DRM, even if it were somehow to have no burden on the user, still wouldn’t help the profit capacity of the game. Piracy after the first week/few days is mysteriously only a bad thing for shitty games, where word of mouth has a negative impact.”
“Sci-fi, atheism, libertarianism, comics, academia, and now games and astrophysics. All of these areas, and probably more that I’m not aware of, have been hit so far.
This is part of why I don’t buy into the idea that this is not, in fact, a broader cultural war taking place, despite some who seem to believe this is some kind of isolated incident within gaming, related only to games journalism and nothing else. That and the fact that I actually want to be victorious, and in order to do that, it is necessary to know who your enemy is.”
“I cannot “get over” or forgive King of Friendzone.
The reason is simple.
Think of what would’ve happened if the GameJournoPros shit hadn’t come to light and we had hard hitting proof they collude, discuss what they’re gonna write, which tone to take, who they’re gonna blacklist. Think about what would’v happened if KoP had pulled the shit he did three months ago.
The whole Gamergate ordeal would’ve been dismissed as made up, tinfoil hat paranoia bs and it would’ve kept that stigma no matter what else came to light. It would’ve killed up. And KoP would’ve buried a good thing just becuase he’s a retard that jumped the gun, didn’t check shit and wanted to be famous”
“I thought he was gonna delete his twiiter account?”
“They all say that until they realize they have a following and milk it for all its worth.”
“LOL what KoP and IA seem to conviniently ignore is that half and full chan has ALWAYS been shit talking / whining about SOMETHING every fucking waking moment.
/pol/ has shit talked Jews, Niggers /v/ has shit talked about Gaben, Ubishit, etc etc. /a/ has whined about Naruto, KyoAnus etc etc. Every single thread has something to whine about all day.
Only difference is that now THEY are the topic of the shit talk and no matter how much they justpretending.avi say they aren’t ass blasted about it, everyone knows they fucking are.
I fucking wish King of Dox just fucked off when he said he’s deleting his twitter and removing himself from GG and shit. But he’s a big ass liar anyway so that’s fucking wishful thinking ain’t it.”
“because those words were a sham. he repeated them early and often to create a false persona. its Caesar refusing the crown three times. its mark antony coming not to praise caesar but bury him. its fake, intended to manipulate a perception. his actions, and those of KoP speak the truth.”
“Being “just some guy” also does not except someone from criticism.”
“This. “I never said I was perfect you guiz so you can’t criticize me!!!””
“IA shits on something IF AND ONLY IF 4chan has collectively shit on the topic already for God knows how long.
If what he was saying was true, that he shits on ANYTHING as long as it’s butthurty / hugboxy or anything, he would have shitted on /pol/ or /a/ or /v/ like he is doing right now because, lets face it, it just like tumblr anyway with the amount of shit talking and whining that goes on every fucking day.
Be he hasn’t until now with /gg/ why? Because this time he doesn’t align with the target. He and his slut.
Admit it Jim. You don’t shit on ANYTHING, just those which you know that the spergs in 4/8chan would shit on WITH YOU. You and all of us know this thread is is no different than any shit talking thread. Only now you call it tumblr 2.0 because you are the otherkin we’re sperging about this time.
KoP already got buttblasted and started spamming BLOCKED BLOCKED that would make Wu proud. Next time IA would soon follow and call us echo chamber faggots who can’t get laid unlike him and Yoko.”
“>shit was easier to keep clean when everyone was stuffed in one halfchan /v/ thread.
If it was possible I’d want to go back to that. Everyone in one thread was fun and exciting. If nothing else we were able to both
1) not fucking skewer each other over fucking every little detail
2) form and impose a single “official” opinion on things.
You think ODN would gain traction if it was started today? You think we could effectively tell everyone that a list of demands is a bad idea if that stuff started today? Since we now have fewer people and more space, there’s more operations everywhere that all get less attention. Sure, some things get spotlights now and again like UV and Baby Seal but they’re not really there. It’s like, meh, do it, or don’t, it’s really up to you. Just leave the rest of the movement alone.
Seems like there’s a lot more touchy-feely shit in general these days and having to remind people to only do what they want to do, when back then it was fucking obvious in the Five Guys editions that /pol/, tumblr, /v/, and reddit wouldn’t fucking get along and we didn’t have to keep fucking revisiting that issue every five goddamn minutes. Nigger? Kike? Cultural marxism? Call shit what you want nobody cared. Now there’s people who care. Not that many, but they tend to have more power, and for whatever reason they’re given a lot more credence. There’s a huge difference between our natural culture where we just shit talk and if we don’t like it we do something else, and actually apologizing for talking shit or other people talking shit and reminding people they can do something else. In comparison to before, there’s now these people who cause a huge fucking waste of space and energy to realign that conscious attention to actual topics and not some random faggot’s feeeeeelings.
Or maybe I’m just seeing twitter normalfag shit too much. It’s all somewhat blurry these days. Which it wasn’t back then, because we weren’t fucking on twitter, we were all in those 850 posts per 45 minute threads.
If the Gawker-4chan link doesn’t actually exist and moot actually made the decision entirely on his own to kick GG off 4chan I’ll delete my hentai collection and pick a new waifu.
They didn’t kill us and we gained new weapons (e.g. a board for slower, older discussions), but we definitely lost some powerful ones.”
“A boycot implies a form of organization and people and also a blacklist.
Just keep it to yourself. If anti gg sales drop then. They will lash out and blame it on us thus giving us more ammo. If there is no blacklist then they are going to look like asses since the poor sales may be influenced by poor programming or a faulty product.
If you make ablacklist for pro gg to follow then anti gg can astroturf sales and then say lol gg did nothing.
Think tactically m8t.”
“In every movement I have been involved this far, it always went the same.

“IA must realize this, but yet he doesn’t seem to be able to take it. When a portion doesn’t like what happens in a stream he turns on GG and starts calling it a hugbox. How does that even fucking work? It doesn’t comply with the persona he created for himself. Apparently it was all talk.”
“Alright Jim you faggot if you’re reading this I actually hope your ass listens.
What the fuck are you even doing mate? Did all those followers go to your fucking head? This is my first post in these drama threads due to other factors and quite frankly I just don’t give a shit, but now your bullshit is in my feed so now I know it exists and my autism dictates I correct you on your obvious errors.
Let us start from the very start of your bullshit eh? Remember when KoP was about to reveal the “shills” and as he was doing it you were celebrating like a fucking retarded monkey as KoP made an ass of himself thanks to his crippling fucking paranoia? You were complaining about cliques on skype trying to control shit weren’t you? And to prove this you and your own fucking clique get on stream to talk about how leaders are bad while praising the shit out of the drama you try to kick up fabricated from fucking nothing. KoP’s “evidence” was utter fucking garbage and you still defended and encouraged his retarded ass. Who the fuck pulled the wool over your eyes, or does the wig just do that from time to time? A bloo bloo bloo gaymergaytors are making fun of me doing a lazy stream that some moron tagged as #Gamergate. Sorry Jim that not everyone is sucking your cock after the moronic stunts you pulled. Do I care about the lazy stream? Personally I don’t give two shits if you started jack hammering her on stream, but your reaction(s) to it have been utterly fucking disgusting. “Oh no I’m being tone policed by shills in gamergate” No you were being called a retard for doing arguably retarded shit. Then KoP comes along with his retarded conspiracy theories about Skype cabal shills trying to tone police you folks out of /gg/ with his other retarded proof in hand about Nick Denton. Well congrats you took it hook line and sinker because it came from your very own clique of merry men. You’re upset your own clique isn’t top dog, understandable, but be honest about it and stop being a fucking hypocrite, your fucking ego is massive and you let your own fucking hugbox, clique, and viewership get to your head(Yes I used the term hugbox correct unlike you, you idiot, it seems the more your ego inflates the higher your inability to grasp concepts goes, anonymous hugbox? You fukken wot m8? A hivemind isn’t a hugbox you blundering turbo tard)
Either go back to being just some guy, Jim, or embrace your fulfilling full fledged faggothood you fucking flamingo.”

He has some actual brains, but I think he is usually drunk and pissed off a lot. Once he got some pussy it was all over for him. Now he becomes pussy.
He’s not the kind of man cut out for a public role. He lacks any sort of ethics, humility or empathy. So its funny watching him burn to death over less than 30 people telling him he’s a sperg. He and KoP have become lolcows now. Only they are so irrelevant to the debate at hand that antiGG won’t even bother giving them the time of day unless they are insane like Tait.”

This is a war. A war of information. A war of communication. A war of culture. Get into the trenches and find out who needs help fighting the good fight and fight along side them. Open up new fronts in this war and find new weakpoints to exploit. Be a role model and someone worthy of respect.”

“”My generation of boys is f**ked,” says Rupert, a young German video game enthusiast I’ve been getting to know over the past few months. “Marriage is dead. Divorce means you’re screwed for life. Women have given up on monogamy, which makes them uninteresting to us for any serious relationship or raising a family. That’s just the way it is. Even if we take the risk, chances are the kids won’t be ours. In France, we even have to pay for the kids a wife has through adulterous affairs.
“In school, boys are screwed over time and again. Schools are engineered for women. In the US, they force-feed boys Ritalin like Skittles to shut them up. And while girls are favoured to fulfil quotas, men are slipping into distant second place.
“Nobody in my generation believes they’re going to get a meaningful retirement. We have a third or a quarter of the wealth previous generations had, and everyone’s fleeing to higher education to stave off unemployment and poverty because there are no jobs.
“All that wouldn’t be so bad if we could at least dull the pain with girls. But we’re treated like paedophiles and potential rapists just for showing interest. My generation are the beautiful ones,” he sighs, referring to a 1960s experiment on mice that supposedly predicted a grim future for the human race.
After overpopulation ran out of control, the female mice in John Calhoun’s “mouse universe” experiment stopped breeding, and the male mice withdrew from the company of others entirely, eating, sleeping, feeding and grooming themselves but doing little else. They had shiny coats, but empty lives.
“The parallels are astounding,” says Rupert.”
“The media now allows radical feminists to frame all debates, in part because sensationalism attracts more clicks than any sort of fair or balanced discourse. Women can basically say anything about men, no matter how denigrating, to a mix of cheers and jeers.”
“My honest advice is to work very very hard on your movement mechanics, weapon collisions, etc. until they’re flawless.
It should feel good to run around in an empty room. Maybe it would get boring after a few minutes, but for that first 120 seconds of doing it, you should feel a rush of pleasure, from the frictiveness of the movement, the responsiveness of the controls, the flash of the animations, etc.
If it’s fun to do nothing, everything else about the game will be fun by extension. If, conversely, the core gameplay experience is a chore, then the game itself will be a chore because at it’s core you’re fighting with it rather than enjoying sitting in the pilot’s seat.
Let this be the time when you get the stuff working well, when your little test room with maybe a few platforms and an enemy becomes the whole of your game. If you start from there, get it right, and THEN start thinking about ways to populate an actual world, you’ll have a really clear idea of what’s fun and what isn’t, what feels good and what doesn’t, what’s easy and what’s barely possible, etc.
If you try to establish a game with a wide scope before nailing down its core, the whole thing is going to fall apart.”
“Old /jp/ poster here. Looks like moot is pulling the same crap on you guys that he did to us.

“[G]amergate is really a fight over platforms. The SJWs aren’t going away because we triggered them, nor are Gawker going away because we dented their revenue stream.

It is an indirect attack to take away their audience by presenting a better option.”

“The FGC is possibly the purest meritocracy in all of gaming. Black people all over the place. Mexicans will beat your ass if you try to play KOF. Pasty landwhales in spades. Swole sonsofbitches like Rico Suave and Drew Grimey. Trans people like Kayopolice and Ricky Ortiz. And, at the top of the food chain, Japanese and Korean players just waiting to smash whatever foolish roundeye rises to the top of the western meat grinders.
You know what Ricky gets shit for? Ricky can be salty as fuck when she loses. Ricky has been involved in some bracket-rigging in the past. Ricky uses the same character that practically every other player on her team used. That’s about it. Nothing about Ricky’s love of dick, or Ricky’s old cross-dressing habits, or the fact that Ricky eventually went under the knife and transitioned. Nobody fucking cared. Either win or put on a good show when you lose. Maybe don’t rob or stab your fellow players between matches. That’s all anybody wants in the FGC, and nobody cares what you look like or sound like as long as you can follow those few basic rules.
The FGC should be the SJW Avalon. It already had everything they asked for. Yet their feels are still hurt because, at the end of the day, competition is competition, and in case you’ve never seen a basketball game in your life, brothers regularly talk shit at strayan levels. The fact that the FGC is filled to the brim with minorities instead of convenient martyrs makes the whole community real fucking problematic to people trying to manufacture a narrative.”
“It’s not hard to ignore something that basically didn’t happen. Did you know that by the end of the Cold War the death toll at Auschwitz had been revised down from 4 million to 1.5 million? That is a reduction in 2.5 million bodies – and yet the 6 million figure never changed. Did you know that the “gas chamber” at Auschwitz is fake – a “reproduction” built by the Soviets (real trustworthy guys…)? Everything they claim about it on their tour is purely conjecture since it is based on something that no longer exists.
Did you know that until the fall of the USSR, the Nazis were thought responsible for the massacre of 22,000 Poles at Katyn, and yet it turns out that the Russians did it and then lied about it to the world? How many more of the so-called Nazi atrocities (the ones that actually did happen) were committed by the Soviets? Did you know that in the immediate post-War years, 10-12 million Germans were forcibly removed from Poland and Czechoslovakia, and 1-2 million died? Another million or so Germans starved to death in allied camps in 1946-1947, but those starvation deaths have not been twisted the way the ones that afflicted German POWs and forced labor inmates have.
The Allies also forcibly repatriated millions of central and eastern Europeans back to Soviet controlled territory – and certain death, as the Soviets considered them dissidents and enemies of the revolution. The Allies knew full well that they were sending these people (not by a long shot were they all Nazi-supporter) to their deaths, and did it anyway to appease their war-time ally. None of this is spoken of and if it is it is handwaved away in an act of grand moral hypocrisy. The UK’s promise to protect Poland’s liberty is ostensibly what started the war, and when it was over the UK didn’t hesitate to hand Poland to the Soviets, along with half of Europe. Meanwhile we see what Anglo-America has been up to these past 70 years. The bad guys won.
The only real German enormity during the war was the use of slave labor, and the Anglos cannot condemn that, for as soon as they had won the war, they wrote up the Morgenthau plan, which forced millions of Germans into labor – mostly in Soviet gulags and labor camps (funny how no one talks about the “concentration camps” the Soviets ran during and immediately after the war with their allies full knowledge and approval).
And where did the idea to conscript this labor come from? Joseph Stalin himself, at the Yalta conference in 1943! He demanded 4 million German slaves when the war was over, and the Anglos happily obliged him.
All the death camp exterminationist and gassing stories are just that – stories based on hearsay. It is a mixture of tales from camp survivors (lies, rumors, embellishments), British and Soviet propaganda (some dating from WW1), and testimony achieved via torture at Nuremburg – all the Germans who testified were found to have had their testicles crushed, and at least some of them were told that their families would be given over to the Soviets.
There are no bodies and no plan – not even in the top Nazi officials private journals and correspondence. The Allies had cracked the German ciphers very early in the war and in all those intercepted transmissions, there was not a peep about any extermination plan. The Auschwitz mortality records list 90,000 dead for the duration of the war.
The 6 million figure is based on extremely sloppy and untenable “scholarship” – comparison of pre- and post-war census rolls, and pure conjecture based on how many bodies an incinerator can burn if operating 24/7/365. Even if they were based on solid premises there is plenty wrong with these methods (for example assuming maximum output of the ovens) but the fact is that they aren’t solid premises – it’s all based on tall tales.
Inmate testimony about camp movies, brothels, swimming pools, and movie theatres is totally ignored by the Holocaust rememberers, but *that* testimony, unlike what we are bombarded with since elementary school, is an indisputable part of the historical record – on top of the testimony, there are German records, and one can visit the camp and see the swimming pool (which, unlike the gas chamber, was not “rebuilt” by the Soviets).”
“The government is pro-feminism. The FBI is protects the government and the status quo.
We are anti-feminism and we are anti-status quo. Therefore I doubt the FBI would be on our side.”
“For being such a smart guy, he seems too “clueless”. If I had to guess, I would say it’s on purpose.
Would not be surprised to see him have financial,relationship or professional ties with those involved with the corruption angle.”
“>that is pretty much the only reason you have for knowing the whole story and still being neutral
There’s another reason: being a professional fencesitter. You know the type: the ones who think both sides are stupid and constantly brag about how neutral and how “above it all” they are.
Kain does this a lot too. He’s just a hipster who is too cowardly or too apathetic to bother getting involved in anything.”
“>spends entire article trying to discredit what gamergate is
>spends entire article on all negative aspects of gamergate
>ends article with “lets not focus on negativity”
Nigga fuck you.
This article is fucking terrible in both writing style and content.”
“Kain really likes to skirt the issues to keep his neutrality intact. The problem is, he just comes across as ignorant instead.
Let’s look back at history, shall we? Maybe the fact that the only reason he even started researching into the ME3 ending fiasco was because his first article called gamers homophobes, following EA’s line of bullshit, which he was crucified for and later apologized for jumping the gun. Oh how very cute of him to completely gloss over that whole mess, including how a majority of the gaming press was absolutely vicious against anyone who had an opinion not in support of all glorious Bioware, who in their infallibility created the GREATEST ENDING TO A GAME OF ALL TIME! SO DEEP! Where do I line up to give Mac and Casey a beej?
One line is all he mentions, right next to pimping his DMC article as an excuse for shit behavior for the nth time.
Maybe if he looked at the “cause” of the anger in Gamergate, instead of trying to create a blanket statement on the medium of gaming itself, this piece wouldn’t come off as patronizing. I like the work Erik does, really I do, but his last few pieces trying to explain Gamergate really come off as too afraid to get into the dirty, dark world of new-age “journalism”, where clickbait is king, and the hugbox reigns supreme. I get that a professional doesn’t want to burn bridges, but people not calling out others on their bullshit is what caused this mess in the first place. Journalists have been fermenting their own brand of sociological jenkem for a while, and the balloon just popped.
My biggest criticism of this work is his stance on reviews. Let’s get one thing straight: A review is supposed to break down the topic for the reader to draw their conclusion. Games are not film, not music, not like anything else, so trying to adhere to the same guidelines doesn’t work. End of fucking story. If you want to interject on how X detail of Y game is misogynist, or how you feel that a game set in 15th century Germany is racially insensitive for not including POC or Female characters, SAVE IT FOR YOUR FUCKING BLOG OR “OPINION” COLUMN. It shouldn’t influence the score of the review itself if you took personal offense to the subject, especially when those scores are tallied and counted by publishers to determine how best to pay their employees.
What the fuck happened to the Kain who called out Kuchera?”
“>You idiots are alienating Jimmy Wales with the constant barrage of insults. Any time he posts he gets people insulting him and calling him out on his personal life
He keeps getting grief because he keeps fucking up and being dishonest at every given chance. Welcome to reality. You do something stupid, people are gonna call you out on it.
>and probably death threats too.
Bull fucking shit. You source that and you source it now.
>This is a real eye opener for me since he retweeted a few of these tweets he’s gotten recently and now it’s hard to deny that we have douchebags in our midst flinging shit at anybody who will hear them.
Implying we have ever had any plan than to hear Jimbo’s side. We were betting on him. More than once. But time and time again the dude fucks us when we put our faith in him.
How long has this shit been going on? Over a month? Maybe two months? He lets the Antis get away with bloody murder, but we show our side and he literally comes out and calls us a fucking aggressive hate group.
You’re damn right he’s gonna get flack for that. Jimbo is digging in his purse and he can’t seem to find his balls or his spine because he’s afraid of the SocJus backlash. He’s a fucking coward and a backstabber.
If you honestly think he’s going to come through for us, you’re braindead.
>Worse, a lot of GGers seem to have taken up the practice of threatening Jimbo with taking his donations away which is retarded because wiki is one of the biggest sites on the internet and GG doesn’t have the clout to even put a dent in that.
The fuck we don’t. They said that about Gawker and Kotaku. We cost Gawker seven figures and made the big man himself step out and abandon ship. We made the FTC get involved and start looking into these people and so are the FBI now. Like hell we can’t.
>Further, can you really say the points he’s making here are that unreasonable?
Yes. He’s ignoring circumstance.
>To be taken seriously or to have any shot with PR we would quite legitimately need to make some reforms to discourage idiots like that “you’re a brainwashed moron” guy who thinks insulting Jimmy Wales is good for GG press.
Ok, now I know you’re a shill, get fucked. And that “guy” you’re talking about isn’t even a GGer. Get your facts straight.
>Notice that he doesn’t claim to support the “it’s about misogyny” narrative. He just thinks a few idiots have ruined it for everyone else. I can’t say I disagree.
Fuck you, you know exactly what this asshole said and so do the rest of us.”
“-Blacks require intrusive strict policing to behave near a Western standard
-The same level of intrusive strict policing would make whites revolt
-The media plays up incidents in which the police were justified in killing a dindu
-The media ignores actual incidents in which police commit heinous crimes and “internal investigations” find them not guilty
tl;dr Expect more dead cops, expect cops to overreact, a vicious cycle, the USA is fucked.”
“People seriously think the FBI’s going to do shit about all of this?
You should understand that these are rich fucking kids with parents with connections to weapons manufacturers and shit. FBI only cares about the nobody with CP in his cache.”
“People try to impress you with the things they have done … You should be more impressed with things they would never do.”
“Made me realize that I hated missing out on young love. Moreso the learning experience than sex. I felt stunted for a while after playing through a few routes. Made mee feel like complete shit, because there were a lot of circumstances in my youth that prevented me from going out and experiencing life.”
“>I’m gay and
Stop right there, if you identify yourself by your sexual orientation and not as a person, then you’re the most boring person alive and you’ll die lonely. Get a personal identity and stop defining yourself five word descriptions at the beginning of shit you post on the internet.
“WELL AS A GIRL I”
“AS A TRANSEXUAL GUY I”
“I’M GAY AND”
No. This is not how you post on the internet.”
