    This will start with every good intention.

  • We cannot let this become gaming culture

  • smelly 17/10/2014

    @emanuelpereira1 : Not at all, I think you'll find that i'm VERY critical of gaming journalism.

    I'd like to know how many reviewers got their game consoles for free (and which ones they get for free - especially if they're being critical/praising one or the other). How much did a 9/10 rated game get in advertising money for the site? How much was paid to give daily updates on a game, etc etc.

    If that's what you're mission is though - to uncover that. Then I suggest you make a new movement which isnt tied to a load of babies whining about certain games being made.

    Or make a new movement which isnt tied to misogynists and this obsession you have with this poor zoe who's only crime was to make a piece of software while being a girl.

    If you actually set up said campaign, I might actually join you.

    But the below video, which i was replying to - was actually released by GG in support of their cause. And consists of lots of whining that "Depression Quest" isnt a real game - as it doesnt have a score, and you cant shoot people in it.. So therefor it didnt deserve the praise, so therefor journalists are corrupt.

    THAT is bollocks my friend.

    @Bill_P : if the games industry is 100% profit driven, as you say.. Then surely ignoring 50% of the population is stupid?

    But yet you think developers should only make games for teenage boys?

    @-cerberus- : so basically after watching that video, gg are saying this is actually about "boo hoo! People are making games which do more than just running around shooting things! How dare they?!? Some journalists liked that people were experimenting with the medium.. They MUST be corrupt!!! I mean, how could ANYONE like a game which doesn't have lots of shooting in it?? Boo hoo.. How DARE they!"? Reply 0
  • E3 organiser and trade group ESA speaks out against GamerGate

  • smelly 17/10/2014

    @MrTomFTW : "A PR stunt that has done well playing the media at their own game,"

    Ah, see the problem you now have, is that the minute a journalist explains that, they're IMMEDIATELY bias in this stuff...

    Which is why this keeps going around in fucking circles.

    @Keinart :

    "About the Zoe Quinn scandal"

    There wasnt one, other that SHOCK FUCKING HORROR, she met a guy.

    Sooo many fucking ways that games journalists are compromised, and you guys focus on this poor girl.

    Who did NOTHING wrong, other than upsetting her (seemingly) asshole of an ex boyfriend.

    But yet gamergate are like "how dare SHE make games SHES a GIRL!"

    @MrTomFTW : Dont get me wrong.

    1. I do agree that game journalists NEED to be held more accountable. Was their console given to them for free? How much advertising did this company spend on this 9/10 game review? etc etc.

    But I think there's much better ways of doing that, than latching the whole thing onto this anti-female crap*..

    * which leads me onto 2.

    2. When i say anti-female crap. I dont mean i think Anita is right. In fact, I disagree with much of what she has to say. But just because you disagree with someone, doesnt mean how some gamers are reacting is appropriate.

    Some people have rightly pointed out, that gamers act that way on mens youtube videos/etc too.. But that doesnt make it "okay".

    The problem with people now growing up with the internet is that they think that it's okay to behave like this, just because they disagree with other people.

    3. Games are changing, I personally think more diversification and less shooting games aimed soley at the teenage boy market would be a good thing.. People need to stop fearing change.

    4. Zoe Quinn, Well that's just a non-story - which just makes people who are into this gamergate thing look like asshats. "OH NOES a GIRL made a GAME!".

    Did the press cream themselves over it? Yes.. Maybe a little unecessarily. But then, see also any molyneux game - are people suggesting he's sleeping around with the press?

    And that's just the stuff I actually bother enough about to understand on this whole stupid story.

    Problem is, the press now cant even talk about it without being called "biased", leading to more yells from the "gaters". But if they dont report on the stupid stuff the gamergaters are doing/saying.. then that just promotes a one sided argument - allowing them to shout as much as they like...

    The problem is that GG covers LOTS of problems. Which means that you may even agree with some of their points, while disagreeing with others. Which makes it so much more impossible to argue/discuss.

    If we could have different movements for each thing, it'd be nice.

    Can we have a "People who want the games press to be better" movement, a "people who dont believe feminists deserve such a loud say in games" movement, and a "We hate all women, and we're agressive tosspots" movement?

    Er, If I say "i lied" would you stop creeping me out and obsessing over me?

    I'm not sure I'm happy with a 44 year old man creeping out over me like this, I am genuinely concerned.

    I came in to talk about a game, and try to decide if I should purchase, not talk to some strange guy who needs life... I'm genuinely concerned for you (and for my own wellfare, I hope you dont know where i live!).. Go talk to someone?

    ACTUALLY, I'm just going to put you on ignore... And report you to the mods, bye bye.

    @minleg : Fuck me, do you have issues..

    Im getting a bit worried about this obsession you have with me.

    Please stop.

    I'm glad you dont care about my "opinion", especially when it comes to this game, as I'm basing everything i know about it on the demo. That's why i'm trying to have a conversation with the grown ups about it, try to see if there's more to it than the demo lead me to believe.

    @INTELIGENCIA : I should hope the review ISNT based on the demo!

    My point is, that this was top of my buying list.. Then I played the demo, and it felt like a boring button masher with pretty graphics..

    Demo came across very "meh" to me.

    Now obviously there *must* be more to it than the demo showed, as it's getting great reviews.

    So I wonder if it was just the demo not showing off the game properly.. Or whether I just wouldn't enjoy this game at all.

    @minleg : You are one strange cookie. And Im amazed you got so many +'s..

    Okay, just for you.. I didn't have a wii-u, now i have one.

    Not sure why that is so hard to understand... "YOU LIED!! You said you didnt have one, now you say you do have one!"

    - That's the way it works.. people dont have things, then they have things... Go ask your mom to explain it to you.

    I had no intention of buying any of the 3 machines, then I saw I could cash in some airmiles, and get the mario kart bundle "for free" (airmiles), with free donkey kong freeze, free mario and luigi (the 2d one).. And because of the mario kart offer - a free copy of pikmin 3.

    Which seemed like an offer too good to turn down. So I got one.

    Now I'm not sure what it is you're trying to "prove" by calling me a liar.. but - whatever it is, it's a bit sad.

    I've gone into detail of why i didnt like the demo, and it put me off buying it. If that makes you cry - then sorry... But it's just a bloody game, me buying it, or not buying it - should effect you..

    Now stop crying to your mom you sad sad little boy.

    One of my favoritist games ever..

    Unfortunately I never played it first time around (i was a sega fanboy) I never owned the original xbox either...

    So I played it on an emulator (sorry!).. If I could pay to play it on the wii-u or 3ds, i'd definitely buy it (to give back for the fun I had!)

    It is quite possibly THE best game I've EVER played.

    If you own a vita (i dont), you OWE it to yourself to play this.

    Never played these games - might give it a try.

    But BTW - what the hell is wrong with some of you? Are the games you play Sooo boringly crap that you're only interested in how many pixels are on display?

    If so, may i suggest you actually try playing some games which are fun?

    TOP TIP: If you're playing a game and all you can think about is how many pixels it has or hasnt got.. then the chance are it's not that fun..

    @minleg : LOL!

    FFS.. Am i not allowed to say anything even slightly negative about any exclusive game - without this nonsense?

    So far this week, i've been accused of being a xbone fanboy a ps4 fanboy, a nintendo fanboy (actually i get that a lot), havent been accused of being a pc fanboy yet.

    Seriously? Am I not allowed a different opinion?

    What's the point in discussion forums if we all think the same thing? The whole idea is to have a discussion.

    BTW - Found out today the RRP on this in America is $40 compared to $60.. So I was half right.. And happy with that price.

    Wouldve prefered it as DLC though (which is what it essentially is)..

    And it also wont alter the fact the bayonetta 2 demo put me off buying it... It came across to me as an absolute bag of ass pasties.

    Everyone is going to call me a xbox fanboy again for this.. but..

    Is it just me, or does this not "feel" like a full priced game? It's obviously using the mario world engine, and graphics from that game. It strikes me as if it should be dlc or a mission pack, than a full priced game?

    Dont get me wrong - if they sell it half the price of other full priced games, then great.. but at full price, i cant see myself buying this... No matter how cute it looks.

    900p vs 1080p.. really, not that much difference.

    In theory games can look loads better in 720p anyhow, as then you can throw more stuff around.

    I'm much more concerned about 60hz than resolution... And before that, I'm much more concerned by whether the game is actually fun or not.

    @bad09 : I (tend to) like nintendo games*, I dont *love* nintendo.

    (* dont like mario kart or smash bros for the record).

    The platform doesnt matter. If other companies were making gameplay based games which didnt have the story backing up repetitive gameplay.. Then i'd be all for them too.

    Back in the ps1 era, there were LOADS of them..

    You may say rose tinted glasses.. But the variety and fun of games back then was incredible.. They relied on fun to sell the games, not story.

    IMHO we've gone the wrong way, and (unfortunately) only nintendo is making games of the ilk i like.

    That doesnt make me a fanboy.. Just someone who wishes that 3rd parties would go back to making something other than boring shooting bollocks.

    Unfortunately the only people actually still making innovative/interesting games are indie and/or double fine.

    And with that.. I have work to do.. just thought i'd set record straight.

    But i'm hoping nintendo picked it up because there's something Im missing..

    The demo, to me, feels just as tired and crappy as CoD/Halo/etc etc.
