The neckbeard finally did it… wow. Longtime 4chan troll Jim Profit finally raises a ruckus by calling out some okcupid mod and their "child sex ring".


Here's her profile. Now all I know of Jim as of late is he sleezes around Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders Facebook pages. I think he must've read Saul Alinskey's rules for radicals or something. As this doesn't seem like his style to randomly attack some upper middle-class white girl out of the blue.

This could be a setup against BLM, I don't know… Jim was palling around with that software site that wanted to dox everybody. and got closed by Kickstarter for being extremely fucking psychotic. Seems Jimmy and the girl went their separate ways but where as she went underground, he's moving on up to more mainstream SJW stuff.

This all smells of CIA bad psyops. That's what trolling used to be called before everyone just assumed it was some dumbass on the internet.

It's probably just drama porn. However I did hear Jim is investing in third party applications for Pokémon Go. You know, things that would help people find out where good hotspots are and stuff.

He seems to focus a lot on knowing where people live.

Apparently here he's going after Assigned Male, the tranny webcomic writer/activist.

Of course the tranny is just using it to get more patreon cash, but Jim doesn't even seem to care and is egging them on to part ways with their money. He really is the alt right's Joker to Milo's Bane.

Operation Rainfall also asked if we can start seeing more Asia releases like Moero Chronicle in the future. Akenaga seemed more concerned in trying to fix the situation in the West:

>That’s actually Compile Heart Asia’s decision, not really ours. We could start seeing that more in Asia, but maybe we should do something to change in the West in the future. Anyway, we just don’t want to censor anymore.

>but according to radical feminism, men can't be raped

Under US law, a woman can put a gun to your head, force you to chew handful of viagra, mount your chemically-induced erection while still threatening your life, and she's only committing sexual assault.

Rape is defined as penetration, and so she only becomes a rapist if she sticks a finger up your ass to stimulate your prostate.

That shit ain't "radical feminism," it's the law as laid out by mainstream feminist lobbying over the past forty years.

Also, because you can't penetrate a mouth with a vagina, a man forcing someone to perform oral on them is rape, but a woman doing similarly is not.


>I'm guessing that to them, men can only be raped if they believe in the right politics.

What? No. Men can only be raped by OTHER MEN. It's only permissable to acknowledge men as victims if it also supports the narrative of men as aggressors.

If you use a more egalitarian definition of rape, or include "forced to penetrate" as a rape criterion, you realize rape isn't a gendered issue, either by victim or aggressor.


I was around for at least two of those threads designing Viv, I did not see any mention of piccolodick. Similar to other anon, I first heard that "green and purple" are 4chan colours from SJWs/feminists, and that they symbolize rape. It was completely out of left field.

So count me also a moron.

A blog that gives chronology and "criticism" from an SJW perspective of the Gamergate hashtag is expiring soon. Ironic that the latest update (which predicts that Gamergate is "spiraling into silence") is dated November of 2014.

Do you believe Gamergate is a war to be won or, if at all possible, would you rather prefer to mitigate some of the conflict through respectful dialogue with the other side? I've been thinking that it might be nice to try to foster a civil and compassionate dialogue with the other side somehow in the Christmas spirit of things. I don't know if they'd be down for it or just call it sea lioning, but I think it would be nice if we could come together for a day instead of fighting each other all the time. Kind of like when we throw board parties and /baph/ and /pol/ and /cuteboys/ and /christian/ and /muslim/ and everyone else all come together and have a nice time just for one day.

So I can understand why he just kept it at 'most obvious actions only'

If a full team went at this style of play, giving monsters various Persona-esque reactions, huu joygasm.

>>309720 I like to term it thus. The closer you go to pacifist, the more you're playing a Sierra adventure game (with all the who-the-fuck-would-think-of-this-without-a-hint-guideness that entails for figuring out the spare order of some battles) while traditional RPG goes the other way.

Even if you're bored with the plot it does at least have one playthrough to enjoy. Its biggest accomplishment to me is having juuust enough for even the disinterested to enjoy one playthrough. It's not often a game going "jack of all trades" will result in something so decent. What I think gets people so hype about the story is if it's hitting 3 or 4 areas of their 'vidya core' at once.

I wonder how the


types feel now.

And yes, this specific game will get an English translation for the Asian releases from what I gather. But what about many games that won't? Regardless of whether it's a particularly big deal for THIS game or not, such a decision just tells them "yes, you CAN influence the Japanese games industry".

I say let them know how stupid this is. There's barely any reaction at all, I assume because no one is considering the wider implications of this because "YOU CAN STILL PLAY IT IN ENGLISH SO SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU DRAMATIC FAGGOT!!!!!"

Greetings /GG/ (not guns and girls).

I'm here because i'm writing a paper for my journalistic ethics class and i want to write about GamerGate. I've been a follower of the movement from the start and find it to be a fantastic example of journalistic ethics gone shit.

I come here asking for any sources explaining the history of the movement, from Quinn's Five Guys, Gawker, Wu and up until now.

If anybody here can help me with this info it would be greatly appreciated.

Gamergate is 100% about harassing le womyns out of gaming.

But seriously, its a big topic.

Your doing a paper on ethics not twitter trolls. So rather than focusing on the professional victims, focus on the newsmedia themselves.

GG is a perfect example of the newsmedia becoming part of the story they are reporting on. And then using their influence to control the narrative to distract from their own faults.

When you think about it, making an already disparaged group (gamers) in to their personal scapegoats was very clever. Who would suspect the gaming press would hold their own customer base in contempt like that?

You could use examples such as the secret forums game journalists use to collude with each other. And the resulting 20 articles that came out on the same day speaking out against their own customer base. Or the mass censorship that happened on the half chan and leddit in order to subdue evidence of collusion.

Pateron is a good one to look at because loads of the journos and devs are all sending each other money on there. Which is very relevant for an ethics paper.

You could touch on the grey area between journalists and bloggers and how that is often used to avoid ethical standards.

Its good to explain that when you have collusion the market is no longer a meritocracy. And every time a poor game gets promoted in the news media because of a personal relationship, it takes the place of a better game that should have got there because of its content and gameplay. So we all lose out.

To give it a happy ending, you can list all the things that have had to change since GG. Most sites have updated their ethics policies and gone back and updated older articles to disclose relationships.

The property was bid on by several studios and TV outlets, and several actresses are circling, with interest from Scarlett Johansson said to be keenest.

I'm about to ask the most important question that's ever been posted on this board. Who is going to play Teridax? Because he's obviously going to be the hero of the film.

They should recycle the gag from Better Off Dead, except have the paperboy wanting his $10 back.

I liked Pixels. It was dumb and fun. But then, I think Adam Sandler went to shit shortly after Happy Gilmore.

The low point was Funny People, which I guess was meant to be an ironic title, since it didn't contain any. Funniest part was Adam Sandler getting leukemia.


>since libertarians have never been in control of anything.

Libertarians don't really want to be in charge of anything. The sticking point is that they don't want anyone to be in charge of them, either, with most compromises being based on public health and safety. Or at least, that's what I've managed to pick up.

Pew Research Centre has done a study on the demographics of gamers using a pool of 2000 samples, with only 925 playing games. Seems pretty low to me.

Dumb human psychology reasons.

It's literally less mental energy to see yourself in something that looks like you. So when you're talking about "realistic" characters, their perceived race can change the way you relate to them. With abstract characters, like cartoons, features become more universal, so you end up with the perceived Black-ness of Bugs Bunny or Bart Simpson.

That means it is (on average) *literally more relaxing* to play a videogame that features a character who you perceive as being the same race as yourself. This is less meaningful on the level of one specific game, where a variety of factors can influence whether something is fun to play, but in aggregate across dozens of games released over several years, not encountering characters that seem like you can create a general air of games (or television, film, musical theater, etc) being "for" other people and not you.

That's one reason why some people care about media representation of different kinds of people.

I get that these guys want representation for your own fantasies, but the work doesn't even belong to them, it belongs to the ones that created it.

It's practically rabid fanfiction writers shouting at authors or artists at this point to include their own self-insert MarySue fantasies.

no surprise that Tumblr is the spiritual successor of Livejournal in this regard

So they're exercising the power they do have: saying "I'd be more likely to buy and say nice things about something if I saw I was being represented."

It's up to publishers and developers to decide what to do with that information. It's not like somebody's using genie wishes to bend minds or anything. People are free to buy what they like, and they're free to tell developers what they want to see.

you can tell them what you wish to see, but they are under no obligation to do as you request, and playing emotional blackmail by shouting 'sexism' and 'racism' is a shitty thing to do.

remember when the journos said witcher 3 was too white? fucking morons.
