Thank you, writers of DeepFreeze.it! :)

That was a great article.

Noticed one minor typo and correction needed in this paragraph, though -

>While no ties between the “Gamers are dead” articles and the mailing list have been found (it is not known if they where organized…

Where=were

Also, there is an open parenthesis that needs to be closed.

Hopefully OP can pass that info onto the stie staff.

Thanks for the great site and content. =)

Great article, but is it possible to label the "journo hat" and "gamer controller" images so anyone understands that % means their (I'm guessing) metacritic score?

It is really not that obvious without it being pointed out. A link to the game's metracritic page would be nice too

DeepFreeze is an utterly fantastic site!

Super good, you guys. I'm not just saying that, the level of writing and detail on all those links was fantastic. Bravo.

Loving the site so far, would just like to post a possible correction or at least have a discussion about this.

Where it accuses EA of starting a petition "supporting" Mass Effect against a homophobic protest.

"even starting a bot-inflated petition supporting Mass Effect 3 from a fake homophobic protest."

And liking to this as evidence: http://kirksigmon.com/2012/04/ea-uses-bots-to-fake-grassroots-anti-homophobia-petition/

I would like it not to be so accusatory towards EA, I have seen the evidence and as much as I dislike EA there is no actual evidence linking the petition to EA, just evidence of the the petition being signed mostly by bots.

Personally, I'd rather we keep the site to verifiable facts whenever possible.

Ha! Ha! Time for Eurogamer!

"We cannot let this become gaming culture - Organised abuse and threats of mass murder: this is the legacy of GamerGate."

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-10-17-we-cannot-let-this-become-gaming-culture

>Instead of engaging with her arguments - which are certainly not beyond debate - Sarkeesian's opponents have opted for a rabble-rousing campaign of defamation, disinformation and organised harassment.

>Strange as it may seem, there are positives to be drawn from this ugly situation. The first is that there is any progressiveness for the trolls to attack in the first place.

>[…]but let's turn our back on the term GamerGate and all the hate and exclusion it has come to stand for. We hope this is the last time we'll ever have to use it on this site.

"Editor's blog: I am sexist - Let's talk about how, why and what I'm doing about it."

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-18-editors-blog-i-am-sexist

>So I am writing this because I hope that if I stand up and admit that I am sexist, have always been sexist and will probably always have to rebel against this bit of programming in my head whenever it is triggered, one or two people will realise that they can relate to what I'm saying, and that will give them a bit of courage to try to do something about it as well.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-09-02-editors-blog-a-brief-note-about-gamergatecommunity."

>You probably know what this is in reference to, although we haven't written about it directly up to now. It's the phenomenon known on social media as "GamerGate", which began with allegations against an indie developer made by an ex-boyfriend and has taken on an increasingly toxic life of its own in the intervening period.

The article was awesome.

Thank you, Deepfreeze crew!

people might say gamer's are dying out because games are so niche. but in a world where everybody buys a copy of a popular game, there will always be the people(be that me or woman) that buy the game and the collectors edition and the season pass and 100% the whole thing. there will always be the gamer. rock on deepfreeze.
