Journalism and sexism in the games industry


LadyCrimson

Recommended Posts

PC master species?

PC Ubermensch?

Advocates of the platform exhibiting superiority?

Council of undisputable and noticable technological superiority?

Kryptonians?

Betters?

I like PC Ubermensch, since it still carries Nazi connotation for middle finger purposes.  I mean, they'll likely ban whatever new term becomes popular that replaces PC Master Race, so might as well serve them some **** yous before the hammer of censorship comes down again.

Is a dumb joke, think Yatzhee meant it as a slight in any case as complexity in games is bad to him or something. Much ado about nothing, but that seems to the meat and potatoes of games journalism these days :lol:

Well yeah, of course it's a joke, you'd have to be a thick headed writer for PC Gamer or an admin at NeoGAF with a stick up his/her arse to not see it's a joke.  I mean, I own a Wii U which I dearly love and I'll still toss out the PC Master Race term here and there for lulz.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Okay, I really like that one, since it acronyms into T.I.T.S.   :lol:

 

Yes, I do have the mentality of a 12 year old.  Why do you ask?

Did you spend a lot of time coming up with those?

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

So PC Gamer has been removing comments regarding that journalist whose girlfriend works at Ubisoft thing.

 

Does nobody in games journalism know what the Streisand Effect is? They just blew that up.

 

Why is it so difficult to appologize, promise to do better,  do better, and move on? Even the Italian mob had better ethics than these people.

Stop the presses! New important information about the effects of videogaming on society!

//Apparantly there was a segment on ABC's Nightilne about gamergate yesterday, which was later posted on youtube. Thundef00t had a comment that generated over 1000 likes, which got deleted. TB weighed in, his alos got deleted. Sargon of Akkad wondered what was going on....and his comment was deleted. I would like to thank the owner of the account for making sure that we cannot hear ungoodspeak.

That's why GG won't win, ridiculously easy for Sarkeesian when utilizing outside media. She should be grateful for this, I tell you :lol:
