How to survive the first episode.
Loading... hold tight!
Do you like movies? Do you like video games? If you answered "yes" to either of those questions, you should probably skip The Order: 1886.1
The PlayStation 4's newest action game is a dull and lumbering thing. It's a brief, drab adventure starring a group of characters who all seem to dislike their lives and one another, and if it managed a single new gameplay idea over the course of its runtime, I didn't catch it. The Order: 1886 is one of the most depressing games I've played in a while
You said that the list was meaningless. I addressed that.
Again, do I have to spell this out for you? Nathan Grayson is a journalist. He is recommending games to consumers while also acquiring ad revenue for the site. If he makes a recommendation for a game that was developed by someone he has a relationship with, in order to maintain trust with consumers, he should disclose any such relationship as it is a conflict of interest. Regardless of your subjective view of the amount of coverage she received, it is still considered a conflict of interest.
I posted a screencap earlier of Zoey Quinn herself saying that they were close before the time of the article. Even if they were just close friends at the time, that relationship must be disclosed for the sake of transparency and consumer trust if you give positive coverage of that person.
What the hell are you on about? Of course it's covered by journalistic ethics as you are still reporting on a subject that you have a conflict of interest with. You can't subjectively say that just because it's an image and a positive fragment of a sentence that it's not covered by ethics. He is still giving the game positive coverage whilst being in a relationship with the developer. That is by definition, a conflict of interest. He is professionally giving his recommendation for the 3 games featured out of 50. He has a personal relationship with one of the developers of those three games. That is a conflict you interest, you dimwitted joke.
Your analogy is bad and you should feel bad. Authors are not recommending products to the consumers, they are creating products for the consumers. I have been providing source after source for my arguments whilst only failing to post the e-mails due to my own forgetfulness. You have yet to provide any proof that GamerGate was born out of harassment or the majority of GamerGaters believe that Nathan Grayson wrote a review for Depression Quest.
Again, are you really this dense? Doctors operate under completely different ethical standards from journalists. There is literally no comparison to be made other than the fact that they both have mailing lists. Again, one is collaboration and one is collusion.
You are completely right as I forgot to post the e-mails. However, your analogy is still bad and you should feel bad.
Man, you just shamelessly flaunt your bigotry around don't you? Everything you've given is subjective. Your opinion of me, GamerGate, and the evidence I've provided. These are the only links that you've provided throughout your posts, and their point is to what? GamerGate has extremists, yes, that is a fact. The Escapist featured a prominent extremist in an article that already had a lot of problems, yes. In order to cover their asses, they edited the article several times over, issuing apology after apology. It was pathetic.
The only thing relevant about The Escapist now is that they reformed their ethics policy in response to GamerGate.
The sad reality of both sides is that they both have extremists.
And they do it to feel good about themselves.
The question is, are you an extremist?
Well, to be fair, big layoffs are occurring around the games journalism industry due to the alternative sources of information now-a-days.
Take your damn blinders off, man! How can you possibly believe that a secret mailing list between journalists, developers, and editors alike that was never disclosed to the public until one of its members leaked it is not ethically bankrupt? E-mails between journalists discouraging each other from writing pieces so as not to displease big name developers and that isn't corrupt? They are blatantly colluding with one another under one voice and you are going to sit here and tell me that isn't absolutely amoral?
It's bloody impossible to make headway with you at all due to your absolute lack of respect. Honestly, you're just fooling yourself at this point for the sake of being stubborn.
Your gauge of the importance that is Nathan Grayson's coverage is completely irrelevant. And yes, Nathan did try to hide his relationship with Zoey in order to cover his ass as seen in numerous tweets of his saying that he was not in a relationship with Zoey at the time of the article. However, as seen in the image I gave, they had an intimate relationship long before the article.
Authors serve an entirely different purpose compared to journalists. Do I really have to spell out why? I mean this analogy is already awful, but you should know that authors do not operate under an ethical code that is remotely similar to that of journalists. Yes, journalists are bound to know one another. No, they should not be colluding under a secret e-mail list. No, they should not give positive coverage of people they have a relationship with without disclosing such things.
Are you seriously this dense? Your rebuttal to the GPL is that academics and doctors have mailing lists too? Again, you make this shitty analogy that leaves you exposing your ignorance. Doctors, academics, and authors do not operate under the same ethical standards that journalists do. There is a huge difference between collaboration and collusion, you vapid pillock.
I disagree with Milo on an enormous amount of things as I do believe he is a radical conservative. However, the reason he is irrelevant here is due to the fact that he is merely presenting leaked information that I can judge for myself without Milo's input.
The lack of disclosure by both Kotaku and RPS was exactly what sparked GamerGate, whether you would like to believe so or not. Adam Baldwin may have been the first to coin GamerGate, but he certainly has played an incredibly small part in the history. No one gives a shit about Adam Baldwin considering the only thing he contributed to GamerGate was the hashtag. Your personal bias towards anyone is irrelevant.
The loadingreadyrun folks are still around, and they have a healthy growth rate. I'm sure losing Yahtzee would be tragic, but I doubt it would be the end.
I'm not trying to garner traction here. You are merely a display of the bitter, hateful, and stubborn opposition. And what a beautiful display you are.
No you did not. Even here you fail to address the GJP list. You also have yet to address media transparency which is the main point surrounding the Zoey Quinn - Nathan Grayson.
The lack of transparency when giving positive coverage of someone you have a close relationship with is definitely an journalistic ethical violation. Especially so when that coverage is in front of 47 other GreenLight games listed in the article, and the writer of the article is given credit for taking part in the work being covered.
Even so, the Zoey Quinn scandal is just the tip of the iceberg. It was a gateway into the corrupt world of game journalism.
Uh, Milo is irrelevant here. Whether or not you like him, the mailing list here is very real. It's not as if we are taking his word for it as the list is presented there in clear daylight. Other members of the list have confirmed its existence as well. For example, it was mentioned in the recent Pinsof interview.
How am I resorting to that fallacy? I never suggested they weren't "true" GGers, but rather the fact that they are just misinformed, which they are. What else am I supposed to say on the matter? There is no review of the game, and if they believe there is, they are misinformed. Now, I don't know if "a lot of GGers" hold that misinformation, but if you have evidence of such, please present it.
Oh those are nothing but my assumptions as I should have stated. Nothing concrete has been disclosed about the reason why Bob is leaving, but that's the only way I can justify the Escapist kicking one of their more popular writers in the context of the past few months.
The Escapist has been on a steady incline in terms of traffic since December, but I suppose we'll see.
What is my opinion? That FH2 doesn't look as real as DRIVECLUB? That's the majorities "opinion"!
Fantastic visuals are not solely linked to photorealism, but the question here is what game looks closer to real life! Many fanboys including yourself have a hard time admitting that DRIVECLUB looks more realistic than Forza Horizon 2. More computational power alows for better resolution shadows, AO, reflections and geometry which arguably add more to visuals than output resolution or FPS.
Still FH2 is a nice looking game it just doesn't look anywhere near as real as DRIVECLUB.
