Craig R.Doubly-so for any company who's social media is controlled by a bot, since that *always* works out just swell02/07/2015 - 11:28am
Craig R.Coke and McDonalds among them with their Super Bowl ads. These companies deserve the derision02/07/2015 - 11:26am
Craig R.Gawker is the worst of the Gawker-owned sites, but companies also keep trotting out ridiculous (social media) marketing campaigns02/07/2015 - 11:25am
ConsterGoth_Skunk, 2 things. 1: accusing someone of reverse sexism solely because they're feminist isn't civil, it's rude; 2: thanks for the comic recommendation.02/07/2015 - 7:52am
ConsterAndrew: I pick Seth Green for Link. Based on his role as A-Bomb in Hulk and the Agents of SMASH, he'd be really good at the "Well excuuuse me, princess!" lines.02/07/2015 - 7:49am
prh99Yeah probably. All for a click bait article to. They could have tweeted anything at the bot, but Mien Kampf just seems like manufacturing controversy.02/07/2015 - 4:15am
Andrew EisenIt could even have turned Gawker's dumb stunt against it without looking like a petty git if it were so inclined.02/07/2015 - 2:17am
Andrew EisenI think it's a cute idea (although, it IS an ad for Coke so there's an interesting discussion to be had there) but I think Coke should have let the campaign run its course.02/07/2015 - 2:16am
prh99No problem.02/07/2015 - 2:13am
Andrew EisenHeh, got that mixed up! Sorry about that. Anyway, that Gawker "is trying to turn this campaign into something that it isn't" is certainly true.02/07/2015 - 2:09am
prh99That they derailed it.02/07/2015 - 1:59am
Andrew EisenNowhere in that article does Coke claim that Gawker's actions were unethical.02/07/2015 - 1:57am
prh99Coke would seem to disagree. http://www.adweek.com/news/advertising-branding/coca-cola-suspends-makeithappy-social-campaign-16277502/07/2015 - 1:54am
Goth_SkunkVery well. Thank you. I'm not shocked anymore.02/07/2015 - 1:50am
Andrew EisenGoth - I originally did as an edit but I moved it to a new shout once I saw your reply as I felt it worked better there.02/07/2015 - 1:44am
Andrew Eisenprh99 - Derail how? Making ascii art out of negative tweets is exactly what that campaign is designed to do.02/07/2015 - 1:43am
Goth_SkunkI was hoping you'd have made that point in the same breath, and not just bluntly state "It's not unethical."02/07/2015 - 1:31am
prh99I don't know, derailing another companies campaign with Hitler quotes is pretty questionable behavior.02/07/2015 - 1:28am
Andrew EisenShocked about what? It's dumb (gee, will Coke's ad campaign do exactly what it's designed to do?) but it's not unethical.02/07/2015 - 12:57am
Goth_SkunkWow. Really? I am shocked, Andrew. Shocked.02/07/2015 - 12:56am
Andrew Eisenprh99 - That's not unethical. 02/07/2015 - 12:52am
Goth_Skunk@Craig: Pics, or it didn't happen. Show me any evidence where I have harassed anyone.02/07/2015 - 12:50am
prh99Speaking of ethics, or the complete lack thereof, another reason to never read Gawker owned sites. http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/feb/05/coca-cola-makeithappy-gakwer-mein-coke-hitler02/07/2015 - 12:21am
Craig R."It's about ethics in games journalism (at least those who aren't big enough to fight back)."02/07/2015 - 12:20am
Craig R.And yeah, I'm done with this 'conversation'. I know a lost cause when I see one, too.02/07/2015 - 12:12am
Craig R.So you target Sarkeesian and other women instead. How big of you.02/07/2015 - 12:12am
Goth_SkunkI don't *ignore* the big fish. I recognize them as lost causes. I'd have more luck trying to teach a mammoth about Christ.02/07/2015 - 12:10am
Craig R.In the end, it's truly about hypocricy in GamerGate.02/07/2015 - 12:09am
Craig R.Right, because it's so much easier to pick on the little fish in the big pond (like this website). But, no surprise that you ignore the big fish since they'll just laugh at you.02/07/2015 - 12:07am
Goth_SkunkYep, so is GG, Craig. Waiting on those ethics. 5 months now, going on 6. Some sites have made an effort.02/06/2015 - 11:59pm
Craig R.Of course, we're all still waiting for those ethics, rather than, you know, the stuff peopl e like you, Goth, want to continue to deny exist02/06/2015 - 11:35pm

Craig R.Or when said movement falls over itself to grasp for every conspiracy straw it can find to bolster itself02/06/2015 - 9:54pm
Craig R.Goth, there's no reason whatsoever to give respect to a movement based on sexism and misogyny hiding behind the skirt of ethics.02/06/2015 - 9:52pm
E. Zachary KnightDestructoid is trolling everyone with their Zelda dream casting: http://www.destructoid.com/dream-cast-i-want-these-actors-for-netflix-s-live-action-legend-of-zelda-287324.phtml02/06/2015 - 9:12pm
E. Zachary KnightThe actors don't have to be actual teens, but the characters they play should be. Dakota Fanning is 20 and she can still pass for a late teenage girl.02/06/2015 - 8:00pm
Goth_SkunkHow often are teens cast in the roles of teens though, really? I mean, look at Glee. When it started, most of the teen characters were played by actors in their early 20's. Those actors are now average 28 years old. Cory Monteith was 31 when he died.02/06/2015 - 7:37pm
E. Zachary KnightYeah, I really think teen Link and Zelda would be best.02/06/2015 - 7:21pm
MonteAlso it depends on the tone. If they want to go lighthearted then they may want to cast younger actors. Like late teens to young adult at most02/06/2015 - 7:18pm
Goth_SkunkI nominate Landon Liboiron for the role of Link. Unfortunately Hemlock Grove is not as compelling a show as other Netflix exclusive House of Cards, but I think he could pull off Link very well.02/06/2015 - 7:17pm
MonteFor Link, we need the TV actor equavlent of Orlando Bloom. Gotta get that pretty boy elf look.... i don't anything about actors...02/06/2015 - 7:14pm
E. Zachary KnightSeriously though. Who would make a great Link? I see no reason why we should keep the cast Anglo-Saxon.02/06/2015 - 6:53pm
E. Zachary KnightThat is why I find that the comic I posted reflected the gamergate movement in my eyes.02/06/2015 - 6:51pm
E. Zachary KnightI don't really classify myself as a "gamergate opponent", but I do respect people who have opinions that do not match my own. However, when someone resorts to harassment and threats to attack one's opponents, that I do not agree.02/06/2015 - 6:51pm
Goth_SkunkBut, to be fair, I'm just as flabbergasted with GG's opponents inability to see and respect that GG's opinions differ from their own.02/06/2015 - 6:43pm
Andrew EisenThat's not what's happening in the comic.02/06/2015 - 6:43pm
Goth_SkunkGamerGate understands the concepts very well, EZK. It just doesn't agree with them. And that, for some reason, flabbergasts you.02/06/2015 - 6:41pm
Goth_SkunkThere's nothing civil about acknowledging the real reason she's a feminist is because she's being critically questioned by a man.02/06/2015 - 6:40pm
E. Zachary KnightObviously, we would get Chris Pratt to play Link. He is the hot property right now.02/06/2015 - 6:40pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, I agree. That comic does depict GamerGate rather well. It portrays GamerGate's inability to comprehend simple concepts.02/06/2015 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenShe's civil in the last panel too. Yes, the man is civil too. I didn't mean to imply he wasn't. But he incorrectly labels her as sexist, reverse or otherwise.02/06/2015 - 6:30pm
E. Zachary KnightSo, Would Dakota Fanning be too old to play Zelda? I am thinking of a late teens cast for Zelda and Link.02/06/2015 - 6:29pm
Goth_SkunkShe's civil,yes right up until the last panel. The man is civil throughout. The man recognizes that she identifies feminism as about advancing the interests of women, first and foremost.02/06/2015 - 6:16pm
Andrew EisenThe comic depicts a woman being civil in the face of someone trying to pick a fight either because he's a jerk or genuinely doesn't understand what the heck he's talking about (possibly both).02/06/2015 - 6:13pm
Goth_Skunk@James: Because it's not possible to be racist if you're a minority? Though I admit, the word 'reverse' doesn't need to be in the sentence. It's just straight-up sexism.02/06/2015 - 6:09pm
james_fudgereverse sexism sounds an awful lot like the buzz words, "reverse racism"02/06/2015 - 6:07pm
Goth_Skunk@AE: Because you didn't ask EZK the same thing, I decline answering your question.02/06/2015 - 6:07pm
TechnogeekI'm going to go with "the guy" and "a staggering inability to comprehend the difference between 'main focus' and 'only focus'".02/06/2015 - 6:01pm
Andrew EisenWhich character do you feel is the GG opponent and what truths does this comic speak of them?02/06/2015 - 5:56pm
Goth_SkunkThis comic amused me. It indirectly describes gamergate opponents quite well: http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/files/2014/10/cohen_comic.jpg02/06/2015 - 5:45pm
Goth_Skunk@Monte: *Fistbump*02/06/2015 - 5:36pm
MonteBonus points if they keep Link as a mute02/06/2015 - 5:34pm
Matthew WilsonIf true, I kinda do not know what to say. At least it makes more sense than a Mario movie http://blogs.wsj.com/…/02/06/legend-of-zelda-netflix-series/02/06/2015 - 4:53pm
E. Zachary KnightAlright people. Let's start our dream casting for the Zelda Show on Netflix. I pick Bryan Cranston for Ganondorf.02/06/2015 - 4:51pm
MonteIts kind of a catch 22. Though there are some work arounds like finding a way to really stylized your graphics so they are cheap but still really great to look at... but many developers want to be realistic and that means pushing consoles to their limits02/06/2015 - 4:05pm
MonteGamers complain all the time about the graphics not being as good as other games in the same generation and that can hurt sales. Ofcourse, if we didn't start a new console generation then they would be working on the same level as everyone else.02/06/2015 - 4:02pm
MonteWell the problem is that they keep raising the standard for AAA. A developer can't make a last gen game and still charge $60 for it when their compeitors are all making current gen. They are pushed to do better02/06/2015 - 4:01pm
Matthew Wilson@monte I do not like iy when devs complain that games are geting more expensive. if you do not like the cost of your project, reduce the scope of your project simple as that.02/06/2015 - 3:30pm
MonteI really do think we could have spent a few more years with PS3, and the 360 before moving on.02/06/2015 - 3:12pm
MonteHonestly, publishers complain about the rising costs of game development but each new console demands higher graphics which costs more. If they weren't so eager to go bigger and better then they wouldn't have such high costs.02/06/2015 - 3:12pm
MontePS2 was WAY too successful to get that kind of rep. But I would believe it for newer generations escpailly the most recent.02/06/2015 - 3:09pm

Andrew EisenAh, okay. I played Deus Ex just last summer so I was getting concerned that my memory was slipping in my old age!02/06/2015 - 12:40pm
MechaCrashConversation drifted into Dishonored.02/06/2015 - 12:12pm
Andrew EisenAre we talking about a different Deus Ex (I'm talking about Human Revolution) or is my memory of the game really that bad? I don't remember an amulet or Granny Rags or Slackjaw.02/06/2015 - 11:47am
ZippyDSMleeConster: Mmmm I do not really recall what the stats were but I tried hard to ghost and knock out every enemy to the point if I did not save every other encounter I would be screwed out of an hour or so gametime. LOL .02/06/2015 - 10:53am
ConsterAt least I got the no-kills achievement for the DLC - the only one I killed was nightmare-Corvo.02/06/2015 - 10:52am
ConsterI freed Slackjaw and destroyed the amulet, then hid while they duked it out - sadly, that doesn't seem to have worked.02/06/2015 - 10:51am
ZippyDSMleeConster: Mmmmmmm I could have sworned I destoried the amulet then hit her with sleep darts.... mmmmm02/06/2015 - 10:44am
IvresseIf you count Warcraft expansions, then Warlords of Draenor. Otherwise last game I preordered was probably Final Fantasy XIII (the first one), and that's probably one factor that drew me into not preordering games again (except for Warcraft expansions)02/06/2015 - 8:58am
E. Zachary KnightHere is a great comic that, perhaps unintentionally, depicts the GamerGate fiasco. http://www.gocomics.com/nonsequitur/2015/02/0602/06/2015 - 8:09am
ConsterZippy: I made the mistake of dealing with Granny Rags, and her final encounter is bugged (it counts her as killed even though it says it doesn't).02/06/2015 - 6:27am
ConsterIt may have been because of a side-mission where I had to help arrest someone, so I dragged him down the stairs and out of the building to the cop (turns out I could've left him in the apartment), and then later he was dead from exposure or something.02/06/2015 - 6:23am
Michael ChandraAndrew, I'm assuming he ran into a glitch somehow where a disabled enemy counted as killed and he only found out at the end.02/06/2015 - 5:36am
ZippyDSMleeFinal Fantasy 3 for the SNES for nearly 100$ and the last game I perordered was Quake 4....02/06/2015 - 1:45am
Papa MidnightAndrew: I pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PlayStation 2. I think that was the first and last game I've ever pre-ordered.02/06/2015 - 12:26am
ZippyDSMleehttp://arstechnica.com/gaming/2015/02/look-into-my-eyes-tracking-your-gaze-could-be-the-next-big-gaming-input/02/05/2015 - 11:06pm
ZippyDSMleeConster:Odd I never had to kill anyone I could not avoid in Dishonored .02/05/2015 - 10:11pm
Andrew EisenInteresting approach. Exploding Kittens Kickstarter stretch goals are met by unlocking achievements. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/elanlee/exploding-kittens/posts02/05/2015 - 9:43pm
Andrew EisenConster - I don't understand. If you don't kill anyone (bosses don't count) you get the Pacifist achievement. Is your complaint that there's no way to complete the boss battles without killing them?02/05/2015 - 8:28pm
Matthew Wilsonthey sold it for 10b. if that number ring a bell, its because that is what they just paid for wireless spectrum.02/05/2015 - 7:59pm
E. Zachary KnightYEah, it is a lot easier to sell people something that costs 10$ a month to run for a price of $50-70 a month, than it is in the wireline business.02/05/2015 - 7:56pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://arstechnica.com/business/2015/02/verizon-sells-three-state-territory-including-1-6-million-fios-users/ seems like they want to get out of the wireline game. makes sense since wireless is more profitable.02/05/2015 - 7:53pm
ConsterI have no beef with Deus Ex: Human Resources's ending, only with it robbing me from the "don't-kill-anyone" achievement, just like Dishonored did.02/05/2015 - 7:32pm
Andrew EisenHuh. You know, come to think of it, Ocarina of Time may be the only game I've ever preordered.02/05/2015 - 6:36pm
E. Zachary KnightThe last game I preordered was... Hmmm, I guess I have never preorded a game in my life. Don't plan to start either.02/05/2015 - 6:36pm
Andrew EisenI think the last game I preordered was Ocarina of Time for the gold box and cart!02/05/2015 - 5:50pm
MGI do agree with them, EC is not say all members of GG are evil. They have a problem with the core start of GG, and the actions done by the most vocal people and those that do all those sick actions against people.02/05/2015 - 5:50pm
Goth_SkunkAhh! Well, that explains a GREAT deal. Unfortunate that I played the sub-par version. That's what I get for pre-ordering, like a walking wallet.02/05/2015 - 5:48pm
