prh99Long work hours is enough to keep anyone who enjoys free time out. I guess work life balance hasn't quite taken hold in STEM fields. The U.S isn't exactly top of the list for family friendly workplace. In fact we lag well behind according to a study.01/08/2015 - 7:36pm

Goth_SkunkBy no means are women being held back in STEM. Women just aren't interested.01/08/2015 - 7:07pm
Goth_SkunkI work in a NOC for a Canadian telco. I can count the number of women I have worked with in this field from Post-Secondary to today (13 years) on one hand.01/08/2015 - 7:06pm
NeenekoAnd a lot of that starts in high school or earlier, which keeps girls out of those classes in the first place.01/08/2015 - 6:10pm
NeenekoIt is a multi-stage problem. I knew plenty of women who left tech due to poor treatment, and I have had some stiff words for coworkers ranting about how their female coworkers just manipulate men into doing their work. "undeserving' also comes up often01/08/2015 - 6:09pm
Wonderkarpexample, when I was in highschool, there was a tech prep program for computer engineers. All 4 years I went to Highschool, that class had nothing but Male students. Videography and Graphic Design and Medical and even Autoshop had its fair share of women01/08/2015 - 4:40pm
Wonderkarpone thing I'm pretty confident I'm right about. A good reason why women arent in STEM Fields isnt harassment but the fact that many young women arent encouraged to explore the STEM fields. There are a lot of institutions that dont encourage STEM at all01/08/2015 - 4:39pm

ZenI was going to put in the kids room for Netflix and such...but that fell through. And I only have a handful of digital PSP games. So 99% of it's use is just to play the digital PS1 games that I can just play on the Vita, PSP, or PS3 already.01/08/2015 - 2:38pm
ZenI bought a Vita TV cheap from a friend for $50 for my collection...otherwise it is the most useless and pointless "system" I have ever owned. MANY of my Vita games don't even work on it and Netflix/Hulu aren't even supported.01/08/2015 - 2:37pm
ZippyDSMleeI woud have gotten a vita TV if you could play PSP discs bastards....01/08/2015 - 1:03pm

MaskedPixelanteNot only is it a major release, but a couple months back I seem to recall someone (probably Nomura) saying that they weren't even out of pre-production yet.01/08/2015 - 12:27pm
WonderkarpI like the Vita TV. I had to string it through 2 different bypasses to capture it, but its a nice little machine and I love playing PSP and Vita games on my television.01/08/2015 - 12:23pm
MaskedPixelante Vita TV to receive HEAVY price cut in North America, surprising no one.01/08/2015 - 12:22pm
Wonderkarpits a major SquareEnix release, so yeah, I'm going to go with MaskedPixelante's estimate01/08/2015 - 12:20pm

IronPatriotZachery, do you understand now?01/08/2015 - 11:49am
IronPatriotAndrew and Neeneko, OK. I'll dial it back.01/08/2015 - 11:48am
Neeneko@IP - perhaps, but spamming is never a good way to raise awareness.01/08/2015 - 11:47am
IronPatriotToo bad for Allum that he was exposed and now Liberals are #NotGG'sShield01/08/2015 - 11:47am
Neenekobut 'why' is a trickier question. Taking ownership of desire for older values seems more strait forward than recasting history, so there must be some narrative advantage in there for people to be so attracted to it.01/08/2015 - 11:46am
IronPatriotBut if people realize the deceptive nature of right-wing Allum's poll, Gamergate will continue its slide into oblivion and ignominy.01/08/2015 - 11:45am
Neeneko@EZK - Good question. I suspect it is not pretending, but image of self and the world. For instance look at the GG "Trailblazer" award Wonderkarp mentioned. This recasting of the past and present is a huge part of the neolibertarian ideology,01/08/2015 - 11:45am
IronPatriotIf right-wing Allum can conceal the fact that his poll is deceptive long enough to convince credulous people that Gamergate is not merely right-wing anti-women but centrist or even LIBERAL, Gamergate gains another 15 minutes of man-bites-dog coverage. 01/08/2015 - 11:43am
IronPatriotZachery, what Gamergaters have to gain by hiding their far-right, anti-women nature is some credibility, which they have largely lost now that they have been exposed as a sockpuppet army of serial harassers and threat-makers.01/08/2015 - 11:41am
Wonderkarphey Andrew, are you looking for any of the rarer Amiibos? I ask cause I have an extra captain falcon that I'm hoping to give to a good home. 01/08/2015 - 11:35am
Andrew EisenIronPatriot - You're posting the same things over and over, essentially spamming the Shout box. Kindly rein it in a bit.01/08/2015 - 11:29am
Wonderkarpdo you have any other Modes, IP, or is AntiGG the only reason you are here?01/08/2015 - 11:15am
E. Zachary KnightSo, what do right wingers have to gain by pretending to be left wing in polls?01/08/2015 - 11:15am
NeenekoThat is something I find unsettling. Given how toxic 'leftist' is to many, yet we see right wing thought trying to mask as left wing by agreeing with goals but arguing the problems are faked.01/08/2015 - 11:12am
IronPatriotGame Politics did the right thing by publishing Allum's article about his deceptive poll so we could see the lengths Gamergate will stoop to hide how right wing they really are. And self-loathing. Liberals are #NotGamergateShield01/08/2015 - 10:11am
IronPatriotWonderkarp fell into Allum's trap of saying nuh-uh Allum can't be right wing because he worked for Liberal Democrats in the UK. But in the UK, Lib Dems are partners of the right wing Tories.01/08/2015 - 10:09am
IronPatriotRight-wing Allum created a fraudulent poll with dishonest questions so he could pretend to have data to slime "liberals" with Gamergate, when Gamergate is right-wing and anti-woman.01/08/2015 - 10:07am
IronPatriotNeeneko you are right. We now know that Gamergate was a far-right, anti-female gang of 4channers (some who don't even like video games) who used sockpuppets to look like a real movement.01/08/2015 - 10:06am
IronPatriotJames, it is good that Game Politics gave Allum a forum for his fraudulent poll. It exposed Gamergate's desperation to hide it's far-right nature. Even they are ashamed of how far-right they are.01/08/2015 - 10:03am
IronPatriotJames, I am glad that Game Politics published Allum's article about his dishonest poll. Your disclaimer was right on the money. The ethical lapses are all Allum's, not Game Politics'.01/08/2015 - 10:03am
Neenekothat... that is a rather special level of.. well... 'special'. I have seen a lot of takes on the civil war period, but that one is new.01/08/2015 - 9:53am
E. Zachary KnightYou want to know how we know Abraham Lincoln isn't real? Because Vampires are not real. How can he be real when he is shown fighting fictional monsters?01/08/2015 - 9:44am
WonderkarpI want to call him out on that stupid, but there is no fixing that level of stupid01/08/2015 - 9:36am
Wonderkarpever read something an old highschool friend posted on facebook that makes you want to hit them with your hat? friend of mine from highschool is saying Abraham Lincoln wasnt real --;01/08/2015 - 9:31am
NeenekoOn a more amusing note, the FBI had more to say on the Sony hack, indicating occasional detection of NK IP address is evidence of state sponsorship. So that means /b is really a front for the FBI, and GamerGate was the work of Homeland Security.01/08/2015 - 9:27am
Neenekoesp given how much of this is purely online, where entire trails can be created out of whole cloth with only moderate skill and time.01/08/2015 - 8:47am
Neeneko"facts" are difficult to verify, so trust of the source plays a big role in seeing them as facts or not. GG facts are often discounted for the same reason Infowars facts are. Unrecoverably tainted.01/08/2015 - 8:46am
NeenekoUnfortunatly, wonderkarp touches on why GG was doomed from the get go. So much of the early movement openly used sock puppets and other dishonest tactics that it ruined any later credibility.01/08/2015 - 8:45am
WonderkarpI hope he keeps his spaming short comments too the comment section in the future.01/08/2015 - 8:30am
Wonderkarpthose people as "Sockpuppets". I think James Fudge made a good call on allowing Allum to post those 2 articles. They are good articles and reflect what I've personally experianced. and yeah. The shout box is not the best tool for a conversation like that.01/08/2015 - 8:29am
NeenekoThe shout box really is not suited for complicated or threaded conversation ^_~01/08/2015 - 8:27am
Wonderkarp@conster Never claimed to be the expert on that. just my opinion. but its not the best opinion cause frankly I dont really care. I just dont like when hard data is presented too somebody and they go into a huge rant on how its a lie and associates all01/08/2015 - 8:27am
ConsterWonderkarp: someone saying we should generally believe rape victims (as opposed to now, when entire campuses will harrass them and call them liars) seems to me to be about society's attitude, not how the law works - saying otherwise sounds dishonest.01/08/2015 - 8:03am
MechaTama31IronPatriot: The more separate postings you break your conversation into, the faster the conversation gets pushed out of the shoutbox, to be lost forever.01/08/2015 - 8:00am
ConsterIronPatriot: remember, the USA "left" is considered centre-right-to-moderate-right in the rest of the world, so writing for Liberal Democrats WOULD make him left-wing from a USA point of view.01/08/2015 - 7:56am
james_fudgeYou all know you can look up his work on the Internet, right? I did prior to letting him publish his articles.01/08/2015 - 12:21am
james_fudgeFor the record, I wrote the disclaimer at the bottom of Allum's articles.01/08/2015 - 12:20am
IronPatriot"We" do not "agree to disagree." You can't refute what I said about Allum's ethical lapses.01/07/2015 - 11:31pm
IronPatriot"We" do not "agree to disagree." I am right about Zerlina never advocating for an end to due process and you are wrong.01/07/2015 - 11:29pm
IronPatriot"We" do not "agree to disagree." I am right about facebook containing millions of false accounts and you are wrong that photos mean the account is real.01/07/2015 - 11:29pm
IronPatriotWonderkarp you are wrong about facebook, wrong about Zerlina eliminating due process, wrong in your claims of a "Liberal" Allum.01/07/2015 - 11:28pm
IronPatriotZerlina specifically said her opinions about believing rape vicitms was NOT in a legal sense. So how is she eliminating the LEGAL standard of due process?01/07/2015 - 11:27pm
Wonderkarpthe disclaimer was at the bottom. nobody at GP said they wrote the know what, we are going in circles now. We're back where we started. I'm going to bed. We agree to disagree.01/07/2015 - 11:26pm
IronPatriotThat would disguise his right wing nature. Allum #imyourshield01/07/2015 - 11:24pm
IronPatriotEspecially since he could fool people in the US into thinking he is "liberal" in the US sense.01/07/2015 - 11:22pm
IronPatriotSo right wing Allum would fit in well with the right wing gamergate.01/07/2015 - 11:22pm
IronPatriotExcept the Lib Dems in the UK are hardly centrist. Many see them as more right wing than Tories. - 11:21pm
IronPatriotKarp, you admit the pollsters is biased for Gamergate. Where did he disclose this in his articles? Where did he disclose this in his polls? Corruption in game journalism confirmed.01/07/2015 - 11:20pm
Wonderkarpyou gotta give and take a little in government. The teaparty is a good example of wanting everything and giving nothing01/07/2015 - 11:19pm
Wonderkarpgood. the world needs more centrists. it takes a centrist to cross the aisle and work on compromise, the basis of government. we havent had any good centered people in congress for years and its lead to stalemates and government closures.01/07/2015 - 11:19pm
IronPatriotDeputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said "But we are not on the left and we are not on the right."01/07/2015 - 11:18pm
Wonderkarpand I think we are in agreement that this is a disagreement.01/07/2015 - 11:17pm
IronPatriotWonderkarp, I see you don't know much about UK politics. The Liberal Democrats are NOT a left party in the UK. They have a lot of right wing ideas. They are closer to centrists.01/07/2015 - 11:17pm
WonderkarpI did read your post, and I disagree.01/07/2015 - 11:15pm
IronPatriotToo bad you did not spend your silence reading the post I left on the pages of his ethical failure of a poll.01/07/2015 - 11:14pm
IronPatriotGamerPollGate explained on the pages with the GamerPollGate. Thanks to GamePolitics for printing so we can see how Gamergaters fail to criticize lapses in game journalism on their side.01/07/2015 - 11:11pm
WonderkarpI dug into Allum Bokhari in my silence....he is not right leaning. He has written for the Liberal Democratic Voice. His Linkedin shows he has volunteered for Liberal Democrats for 3 years. He may be Bias for GG, but he is NOT right leaning01/07/2015 - 11:10pm
IronPatriotShe said "This is not a legal argument about what standards we should use in the courts; it’s a moral one, about what happens outside the legal system." So how is she saying eliminate the LEGAL system of due process?01/07/2015 - 11:09pm
E. Zachary KnightOk. I am confused. What was Allum ehtical failings and where can I find the evidence of this?01/07/2015 - 11:08pm
IronPatriotWhen did she say "Guilty Until Proven Innocent" ?01/07/2015 - 11:07pm
IronPatriotIt means you are participating in a poll by a rigth wing pollsters who made a politically biased poll while concealing his political biases from you for a game journalism article. Tell us how that is full of game journalism ethics.01/07/2015 - 11:06pm
Wonderkarpclearly saying "eliminate due process". it is pretty much following the "Guilty Until Proven Innocent" rhetoric that needs to be stopped. 01/07/2015 - 11:05pm
Wonderkarpactually Zerlina Did technically say that. She said we should Generally believe rape claims. So generally means "in general" or "usually, as a whole. Most". if you do that, then you believe in general the person accused commited rape. While thats not01/07/2015 - 11:04pm
IronPatriotYou say "what if I participated in that poll. does that make me right wing?" Of course not. How could it?01/07/2015 - 11:03pm
IronPatriotSo you are wrong that having a photo means a facebook account is for a real person. There are millions of fake accounts on facebook. I am right about that and you have lost one of your defenses about gamergate.01/07/2015 - 11:02pm
IronPatriotIf you read the CNN link instead of attacking it without providing any evidence of "crappy" you would see that the numbers on fake Facebook accounts come from Facebook itself.01/07/2015 - 11:01pm
IronPatriotWhy goth skunk? Because I proved you lied about "Zerlina Maxwell, advocating precisely for the elimination of due process in cases of rape accusations,"? That's a funny criteria for being civil.01/07/2015 - 10:59pm
Wonderkarpcause CNN is a crappy news source. duh. what if I participated in that poll. does that make me right wing?01/07/2015 - 10:58pm
IronPatriotwhy lol cnn?01/07/2015 - 10:57pm
IronPatriotIf Allum honestly gave his right wing opinions he would be honest. He did not. He claimed his (secretly right wing) poll found things that supported a right wing gamergate agenda. That's different.01/07/2015 - 10:56pm
WonderkarpI believe GamerGate is misguided because they focus on ecelebs and big bad kotaku instead of creating viable options of games journalism that could properly counter Kotaku and compete with its messages.01/07/2015 - 10:55pm
IronPatriotYou are wrong. Allum did not "its stating an opinion with polls to back it up." He never said it was his opinion. He said it was poll data.01/07/2015 - 10:55pm
Goth_Skunk@IronPatriot: Of all the words I could use to describe you, 'civil' is not among them.01/07/2015 - 10:54pm
IronPatriotWhy LOL CNN?01/07/2015 - 10:52pm
IronPatriotHow do you believe Gamergate is misguided?01/07/2015 - 10:52pm
