>"Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you."

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.

> Amy Pascal’s Pascal Pictures has won a bidding battle for Crash Override: How To Save The Internet From Itself, a memoir by game designer Zoe Quinn that sold to Touchstone/Simon & Schuster and will be published September, 2016. 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 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.

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.

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.

It's like you want the greater public to appreciate gaming as an artform with none of the necessary criticism you don't want to hear because it makes you personally uncomfortable, as high art should at least be able to do.

Feminists are obsessed with sexuality only in a context in which they can "subvert" their proclaimed patriarchal strawmen, usually from the comfort of highly supportive academic circlejerks and hollow media exposes.

They do not "own" their sexuality- they willingly cede power to their supposed oppressors for the sake of more sophisticated and involuted complaints. A feminist work of art is not any proclamation of ownership, agency, or power, but a childish "take that!" against an institution feminists know will never dare turn on them.

>she makes up whatever narrative she wants.

He narrative is so poorly constructed that it's self-deconstructing; anyone who hasn't either stuck his dick in her, drunk the koolaid, or is listening to someone who has done either or both, and actually takes the time to actually LOOK at the record of events, versus what she claims what happened, her narrative will fall apart on it's own.

She has every indication of having Borderline Personality Disorder, so naturally the web of built up so thick that she can't navigate it herself anymore.

Based on my personal experience with another Borderline girl like her; by now, she's stabbed so many people probably burned all her bridges on the aGG side, that she's probably looking to eject herself from the Literally Who clique, reinvent herself (while blaming her friends for all the shit she's done), and find a new clique that is unaware of her track-record to wreck.

There is also a high likelihood she may try to switch sides to GG under an new non de plume, claiming that "I was deceived" and/or "I was abused" and/or "please help me get back at the friends I betrayed trusted"

You know… this is total tinfoil here, but…

With her track record of autism and need for attention, as well as, being a Something Awful helldump troll; I wouldn't be surprised that if she hasn't already tried to insert herself into the Cancer Crew hierarchy and may be partially responsible for some of the recent a/GGR/ro sperg dox faggottry…

Like Jenn Frank?

Who made an article about someone she was intimate with without disclosure?

That kind of thing is based on unethical/corrupt behavior, not mere disagreement. SJWs make it a crusade to homogenize opinion at all costs.

If anything, we're pushing for more diversity of ideas. Let SJWs say whatever they want, some of us even defended Bahar Mustafa's free speech to be offensive to white men (personally, I say, as long as there is no actual personal threats involved or similar obviously wrong behavior that is not just based on the fact of an idea or speech being offensive, but meaning to harm a person), because we want free speech to be a universal right.

Let SJWs speak and you got the best redpill you could want in your hands, just point their idiotic behavior to normal people and let them conclude themselves who's pushing the current radfem narratives on media and governments, and what kind of crazy and authoritarian view of the world they have.

So, There is an Associate Editor at IGN by the name of Brendan Graeber, who uses the Handle "RaggaFragga"

This is his Twitter Handle - https://twitter.com/Ragga_Fragga

Here you can see him touting "5 awesome Metroid Levels in Mario Maker" www.ign.com/videos/2015/09/17/5-awesome-metroid-levels-in-super-mario-maker-made-in-mario

and he's also done a 5 awesome Zelda videos.

Brendan is also responsible for most of the Wiki's on the website.

This all seems nice and innocent, but in these videos, The people that made the "awesome Zelda/Metroid" levels are all made from users of a streaming website that Brendan visits called "Vidya Shorts", where he is a well respected member of their Autismo community. Brendan doesn't hide this on his twitter page, but fails to mention that his friends made the levels. He's basically whoring out his friends streams and not disclosing it.

On top of that, if you spend a short amount of time on VidyaShorts you can see "RaggaFragga" offering early copies of games/press swag to users, if they write his wiki/faq's for him, and he does not disclose this either.

You can't spell IGN without Ignorant.

Judging for the corrupt IGF is going on RIGHT NOW. This was the BIGGEST STORY in the early days of GamerGate when it was proven that the SJW festival skipped over real games like RogueStar's to give awards (and CASH MONEY) to SJW garbage.

SILVERSTRING MEDIA has a game in this year's entries, how much you want to bet that all the judges are going to collude to give it an award?

Other SJW shit like Undertale and Cibele are also in for awards.

I remember other anons were talking about getting into the judging group to make sure that this shit didn't happen, were we just too lazy to do it?

The top prize for this is $30,000! $30,000 in hipster welfare to corrupt SJW trash. WHY ARE WE NOT DIGGING???

>SJW shit

Learn what you are talking about and maybe people will pay more attention.

Here's Toby Fox on SOCJUS journos.

TEG: The protagonist in UNDERTALE is of ambiguous gender. This is also true of many of the monsters he/she encounters along the way. Was this a design choice, and what role does androgyny play in your vision of the world?

TF: Skip

TEG: Romance was one of the most interesting aspects of the game. In some situations there are sexual undertones in the dialogue, but these quickly give way to absurdity. Why did you choose to include flirting as a mechanism, and what role does sexuality play in a world like Undertale’s, where the storyline centers around the polar opposites of violence and non-violence?

Undertake is SJW tripe, you sad cow.

Enjoy getting fucked by your gay lover.

Well, I'm a leftie, so *shrug*. Just sayin' I think these SJW dev-wannabes are plenty corrupt without trying to rope other narratives into.

Maybe the CNN chick was there because of the bride (shudder). No idea. Of interest, however, is the fact that Wolf Wozniak was there just to the left of the CNN chick and I believe it was that reception where he said LW sexually harassed him… before Philipe Poisson (what is it with these fucks and the pseudonyms!?) shouted him down on twitter.

Hey /gghq/, long story short is I'm doing a run-down of the first year of GamerGate for the final project of one of my classes. Everything's going alright so far, and the professor is on board with the idea but I'm having trouble finding info on GG after May 2015 where the Gamergate Wiki just stops. I'd rather not use solely the Ghazi wiki as a source for four whole months, even if I've used it for a few pieces of info. I admittedly stopped paying total attention to #GG around the time the SVU episode aired but that's my bad.

Basically aside from ##GGinDC, DeepFreeze and SWJ Airplay, I need a refresher on the big happenings between May and August. Images and Links preferred, but a basic rundown works too.

you can use the Timeline for a guide. >>308344

Various other big happenings (first use of the hashtag, Gamers are dead attackpieces, Sep 2014 MSM strike, GamesjournoPros reveal, hashtag raids, charities donated to, OP DisrespectfulNod and Baby Seal, SPJAirplay)

hypocrisies of the Lwhos and constant gamedrops from MSM and other antis can be used as well.

even spergouts if you like

For news representation just look at the Gamers are Dead and the Sep 2014 blitz: HuffingtonPost live talks, MSNBC, Al Jazeera and BBC interviews with the Whos and the Pakman interviews.

There is also the organization of the SPJ awards for ethical games journalism. I don't remember the name they chose for it.

If Anita was to point out examples of sexism in gaming that would make the majority of gamers say "Yeah, that's definitely sexist", would anyone but the most neckbearded virgin say a bad word against her?

For instance, the Borderlands guy John Hemingway referring to Mechromancer as "girlfriend mode" because she's easy to play even if you really suck at FPS games (and then backpedaling like a motherfucker when called out on it), or a female player at a Brawl (I think) tournament who was assumed to be a spectator or brought along as eye-candy according to a commentator. If she was to actually put her hairy arse in gear and bring up shit like that instead of beating up digital women, would you unironically watch her videos and such?

On a related note, what other examples of actual sexism in gaming can you think of? Those are literally the only two that cross my mind, and it's pretty much saying that the whole drama is stretched to breaking point.

Oddly enough, anti-Gamers seem to love Other M, while GGers hate it, and one of the reasons for the hate is how it ruins Samus' character by disempowering her.

You'd think it would be a perfect target for Anita, yet AFAIK, she's ignored it.

I find games like Dragon Age to be somewhat sexist where the dialogue is written for a straight male protagonist, an intern Finds and Replaces "he" with "she", and the writers think that's how you offer a playable female option. I quit the series years ago for unrelated reasons and forget what scenes annoyed me. The protagonist admiring some random female NPC is the easiest guess, though. It's super weird since Mass Effect was so good about making each Shepard a distinct character.

Guild Wars 2, RuneScape, and others suffer from the same thing. Like, "you weren't supposed to pick the female option".

>implying Anita gives a shit about any discrimination or issues at all other than earning money.

look there are 2 types of activists, one that does shit and mostly keeps quiet, the other kind goes on media shouting a lot but does nothing else other than raising awareness and lining their pockets. See Al Sharpton and Anita Sarkeesian.

Individual acts of sexism only reflect badly on the individuals that made the game, she goes after the systematic sexist oppression which effects all videogames, so everyone is responsible.

[Spoiler]Real individual cases are isolated and don't have any impact on gaming or gaming culture, memes however do have impact, but they aren't sexist [/spoiler]
