IT IS LITERALLY FUCKING HAPPENING
GAME MASS MEDIA USING GIANT PRIVATE BEHIND THE SCENES MAILING LIST TO DICTATE NARRATIVE, PUSH THEIR AGENDA AND SUPPORT DEVS THEY LIKE
>Also on the secret mailing list are James Fudge, managing editor of GamePolitics.com, and Mike Wehner, a writer for the Daily Dot, The Unofficial Apple Weblog, USA Today, and Yahoo, demonstrating that the list has influence within the mainstream media as well.
It really didn't have to be like this, this is the future you chose .
The comments are asking if having a mailing list is illegal. Too many retards supporting this effort to be taken seriously.
Basically, all the journalists (from different sites) are colluding together to decide what to write and how to spin events and how to change the narrative.
The Gamers are Dead articles made people suspicious, but this is just full blown proof.
Most people into videogames these last few years would know that the whole industry is BS and rigged by money and social influences behind the scenes but it's good to finally have it confirmed and in writing. Now let's hope REAL journalists start taking a look into this nascient, incredibly profitable, and already infinitely corrupt industry known as vidya gamez journalism and it's effect on the industry as a whole.(for the last 2 generations of consoles, games have been made for the dumb masses, the same kind of people that see the latest hollywood movies in theaters and support all things liberal to fit in with their drinking buddies, increasingly over being made for gamers, hobbyists, enthusiasts, and "pros" and the quality drop is obvious)
more than that.
Think about the games that were game of the year last year and the year before and the year before. Think about the games that are popular. How many are there because this group decided they would be there?
Now think about all the games that aren't popular. the ones that get passed by and get no attention. How many wallow in obscurity because this clique of faggots decided they didn't like a creators politics?
they are manipulating tastes FUCK YOU KOJIMA HOW DID YOU CALL ALL THIS FUCK YOU AAAAAAAAAA
Rosemary: Jack, how far do you think the Patriots' digital control extends?
Raiden: I don't really know, but it probably influences a lot of what goes on in our everyday lives.
Rosemary: Even mundane things, like -- which movies and songs become a hit, and what kind of clothes we wear?
Raiden: I think taste would be the easiest thing to manipulate. I mean, think about the kinds of film and bands everyone wants to go to see -- it's whatever's at the top of the charts.
Rosemary: And if the charts are made up...
Fuck you Kojima.
Fuck you, you're alright.
Okay /v/ wanted to keep it civil and not use /b/ tactics but if this vidya thing and these bullshit bans are related there will be hell to pay.
>A word of caution to list members: I've seen a lot more than we've published so far. So be careful with those denials
Tried to ignore all this drama but fuck it, let it all burn
In a nutshell their are some heavyweight political and government figures using videogames to push a very specific agenda very successfully. It's all coming to light and it started with Zoe Quinn and her behaviour...
She was the tip of the iceberg. That's all. This has very, very little to do with her in the big picture.
I just want to know why you're losing your shit over this? Who the fuck is this Nero guy? Where the fuck is moot and why aren't mods handling this like adults with a sticky or something?
I fucking know that much, I just want to know why you're posting this thread on both /v/ and /pol/ like this is anything new.
Are your lives that fucking boring that you have to overblow everything now, or did I miss something?
THE FIRE RISES
That guy literally couldn't have picked a nickname better fitting than "Nero"
He casually walks into gaming journalism, looks around for a few days and then just burns everything around him down
Get a life you fucking virgin neckbeards
It's a fucking video game and a whore that makes everyone lose there fucking minds
It's pathetic all y'all betas are this retarded over A VIDEO GAME
>Bomb Threat Targeted Anita Sarkeesian, Gaming Awards Last March
>Bomb Threat Targeted Anita Sarkeesian, Gaming Awards Last March
>Bomb Threat Targeted Anita Sarkeesian, Gaming Awards Last March
>They have to be involved on some level.
Except they've always let the Anita Sarkeesian/whining about feminism shitposting diahrrea run wild on /v/. They're quashing this now because it's taken a whole new level of cancerous circlejerking.
How is this overblown? As the days pass since this thing first started we've gone from one lone tramp who exchanged sex for favourable reviews and publicity (among other nasty things) to discovering that the corruption goes right to the tippy top.
How is this not relevant to /pol/? Are you serious?
This is about the powers that be using videogames (the largest entertainment industry in the world at this moment) to push an SJW liberal agenda as hard as possible.
What is supposed to be done? Just stop talking about it and let it continue unchallenged? What the fuck are you talking about here?
Where did you even come from? Who sent you?
>The GDC website describes the Ambassador Award as one that goes to "an individual or individuals who have helped the game industry advance to a better place, either through facilitating a better game community from within, or by reaching outside the industry to be an advocate for video games and help further our art."
so it's the same as obama getting a nobel prize.
Easy, stop funding anything. Only pirate video games, only support the ones where there is a REAL community backing it up.
Stop visiting anything, ignore everything they have to say.
Just imagine no one, even bothering to reply or give a fuck about them. Just stay put and ignore them for the rest of their lives, REST OF THEIR LIVES.
The most difficult job in human history is to try to make an ignorant understand its ignorance.
Because moot is friends with all the people involved in this shitstorm. He attended a anita presentation and immediately the next day the mass censorship across all boards started without a single explanation.
>Where did you even come from? Who sent you?
Nobody, I used to pop into gamergate threads but as of late they were stale as fuck and overall the whole movement didn't do shit.
I just want a reasonable explanation of why /v/ is such a shithole right now. The only thing I can think of for mods erasing threads is that someone is spamming them like a chode.
And then most of /v/ goers who actually want to talk about games are fucking tired of this gamergate shit and want the page 0 to stay clean.
Just explain to my why are we spamming /v/ all of a sudden. That shit that OP posted was fucking already known and a long time ago at that.
Everyone lost there ducking mind over games and a whore.
It's fucking disgusting. A video game and one bitch started all this bullshit.
Obviously this is WAYYY more important than ISIS fucking reking everything they see. What about Ukraine?
Fuck all of you
I can not say with a straight face that he is not behind the censorship we are seeing now. I am furious. The people that I've just told are furious. If this is true, they WILL be taking this to a high power.
are 4chan mods and moot really in on this?
if so how did it come to this, why the sudden change of tune?
Sinister forces are at play here, and I feel as though these forces are close to home.
The mods laid waste to the threads following an invasion where the cracked.com article was posted fifteen times a thread across the boards.
Anons started reporting them for being commercial spam and then they justnuked everything EXCEPT the cracked.com spam threads
The contact page for 4chan is gone. The IRC was muted.
You do the math
Just.... fucking Goddamn.
Kojima confirmed for wizard.
have you looked at the average thread here on /pol/ ?
fuck off shillstein
Contemplating his cis white male privilege, his finger hovering over the 4chan server's power button while Anita Sarkeesian whispers sweet nothings into his ear.
As he feels her claws tighten around his wallet, he presses the button. A single tear rolls from his eye.
It was his privilege.
Hey remember when Breitbart was exposed for having a dozen writers involved in "Groundswell" the conservative google group where high level conservative journalists, activists, and politicians talked about messaging?
Apparently Milo doesn't.
I assume there is a power struggle going on between the old guard and these new compromised goon mods.
Some /pol/ threads get deleted as during arguments about it, but they have control over /v/.
Dear people using the "lol it's just video games" argument: there is always something fucking bigger and more important than what you might be discussing; this goes for much more than just some hobby like people think video games are. If it's not video games, it's social justice. if it's not social justice, it's poverty, education reform etc. if it's not those then it's civil unrest, war etc. if it's not those then it's climate change. all the fucking way up.
>evidence anything occurred
here's the full conversation from the cutscene
>YFW KOJIMA PREDICTED THIS IN FUCKING 2000
My friend got banned on all boards because of this. Huh.
>Hey remember when Breitbart was exposed for having a dozen writers involved in "Groundswell" the conservative google group where high level conservative journalists, activists, and politicians talked about messaging?
So if you agree that they were "exposed" sure those liberal shitheads who try to manipulate sales of billion dollar companies deserve to be "exposed" too, right?
It is JournoList all over again except with something completely unimportant that even less people care about, coming directly from a website that actively participates in the rightwing version of JournoList.
Nothing to see here but cognitive dissonance.
No, fuck you.
I got no idea what you're talking about. I was just watching the news, and the House ok'd giving rebels in Syria weapons. I go on /pol/ expecting a dozen threads dedicated to it, but instead I see a bunch of mouthbreathers freaking out about shitty video games.
I can't wait to see them spin this. Jesus Christ.
>posting articles isn't okay when it's against our narrative
>tfw your retarded teen mind couldn't grasp MGS2's message when you first played it in 2001
at last I truly see
When looking at Twitter under the GamerGate hashtag, these are the top images. Seeing all those headlines aimed at attacking Sommers just fucking shows how often the collude like this.
Fuck the industry, burn it to the fucking ground.
>mfw legit threads on /v/ are being deleted because someone mentions gamergate in them,
>I come to /pol/ expecting dozens of threads dedicated to shit I wanna talk about but when they talk about something else I throw a tantrum like a 10 year old
Literally kill yourself
>instead I see a bunch of mouthbreathers freaking out about shitty video games.
You're seeing people freak out over one topic being censored everywhere. No one would give one little shit about it if not for the censorship.
Sure, if you obviously agree that it is ridiculously hypocritical of Breitbart and that faggot Milo and all these conservative limp dicks in this thread to take a moral highground when they completely ignore Groundswell's existence.
Of course I am sure you have some explanation of how Groundswell is a noble and totally different thing pussy.
That's a different cutscene, the one in >>35923693 is from a conversation with Rose. The rest is this.
Rosemary: But you can't really control individual taste. It's too closely tied to personality.
Raiden: I don't know about that. Trends have always been about following the leader...
Rosemary: Not necessarily.
Raiden: The age of direct personal interaction is over. So is the idea of word-of-mouth communication. Rose, you have any friends you've met online?
Rosemary: Huh? Yeah, I do.
Raiden: How many?
Rosemary: Well -- if you count only the ones I talk to a lot, I'd say about twenty.
Raiden: How many of those have you actually met?
Rosemary: One or two, tops...
Raiden: Uh-huh. That's how it is for everyone, I guess. And even if your online buddies had fake identities and were circulating false information, you'd have no way of knowing.
Rosemary: Fake identities...
Raiden: Right. And there'd be no way for you to know for sure.
Rosemary: Well, what about people who do meet face to face then -- like us?
Rosemary: Have you ever really shown me the real you?
Raiden: ...I wouldn't even know the real me myself.
Rosemary: But you're being honest with yourself now -- well that's how I see it.
Raiden: Well, how am I being honest?
Rosemary: I've never seen you show so much -- feeling. Fear, anger, even a kind of giddiness... It may seem a strange thing to say, but you're living out loud for the first time that I've seen.
Raiden: I'm just trying to get the job done. This is war, you know.
Rosemary: I do know that. I'm just saying you're different from your usual restrained self.
Raiden: What about you, then?
Rosemary: I always want to be open with you, as much as I can...
I remember that scene, it was honestly one of the more terrifying things I've seen in a game due to how plausible it was.
This is so fucking surreal I don't even know how to respond.
hey /pol/, /v/ here.
Sorry for ever fucking doubting you.
I mean, I wasn't on this, but I'm talking about all the shit prior.
Because nothing fires up SJW's more than being mad at conservatives. And they know this. And thats why they ALL have "Conservative" in the title of their articles. Dense motherfuckers didn't even think about wording it differently.
>go on /v/
>every topic about MGS 2 is riddled with shit like "Raiden is worst character"
>"bawww too confusing worse MGS game"
>you now realize people hate the game because it's a game not with the mold of the current gaming demographic
>this thread proved that video game companies are manipulating information to fit their needs and controlling the digital flow of information for internet wide censorship
KOJIMA WAS FUCKING RIGHT THE WHOLE TIME. HE PREDICTED EVERYTHING.
Why are people seeing this as a massive surprise?
I don't get why people are getting so angry about corruption in video games 'journalism' like it's a massive surprise
Anyone with any sense stopped paying attention to games media a long time ago
He can't hear you.
He's too busy attending Anita's panels.
>everyone here is fucking pathetic it's sad
You are here too
>Grow the fuck up
Says the undeRAGE SJEW
>do something productive
Says the person posting on a thread he/she hates and not contributing with anything,not even contrary arguments to everyones opinion
>you fucking losers
Again, you are wasting time on a thread you don't like reading things that enrage you and calling everyone names like a child
There is not a single word with reason in your post
It was Emma that was saying that not Rosemary but the point remains.
Companies are censoring major websites and buying out people so their shit games and jounrnalism reign's surpreme.
Zoe just so happened to be the first door unlocked in the warehouse of lies that is video game industry.
>You have been banned for 3 days for posting
>>You're a fucking nigger
>Kids play video games
>Video Games have massive positive Feminist and Social Justice propaganda
>Kids don't know better and end up swallowing everything those games tell them
I guess this is totally not important! People often forget how propaganda can win wars.
Welcome to post-big media.
If you can't control what is seen on TV, radio, magazines and movies then you spend a lot of time controlling online opinion makers.
News at 11. I cannot believe you tards find this shocking.
They're trying to shut down all information that goes against the SJW narrative. Allowing just a single thread to exist will compromise that.
I'm really surprised /pol/ isn't being censored at the moment.
>all those bans from /v/ for reposting/spamming
well then.....mods confirmed for shills supporting censorship and corrupt journalism.
How much are they paying you mods?
Do it for free and all?
THREAD IS AUTOSAGING
MODS ARE HERE
IT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN
This post really hits home.I'm just a lonely nerd looking for attention. This whole thing is one big conspiracy theory and I guess I fell for it and put on the tinfoil hat.
I guess I'll get off 4chan now [spoilers] and write a few dozen more emails [/spoilers]
So what I'm a classical socialist like George Orwell, and it's not from who reports it that matters it's the message and the truth it holds.
These shits are going to be reported to the trade authorities after all of this is over
censorship, corruption, conspiracy, manipulation of media and this is not political any no way? Look at this faggot, it far too late to call this out. You should have done it earlier, when shit like this was small then people would have agreed with you, but no it far to late and we warned about this years in advance by a japanes troll.
Moot is in on it
RECLAIM YOUR CLAY 4chan!
RECLAIM YOUR FREEDOM!

but here is the problem, your average mainstream gamer doesn't give a shit and just waits casually for his next gears of halo. One would've to find a way to talk sense into them.
We didn't hear about this until now because she was likely asked to keep quiet by the police/feds investigating it. That's what they'll tell you when you report something: keep quiet about it, and certainly don't engage the person who made the threat.
So why wouldn't she shut the fuck up about the supposed threats by Kevin Dobson?
That shit doesn't add up. I feel like we're going to learn more related to it.
They stepped up the moderation on /v/
Threads get deleted almost instantly so either they have words and links that are nearly autoban or the mods are working overtime to hide it. Not sure why this thread wasn't purged yet. They were getting deleted yesterday
Fucking hell. Maybe moot is finally trying to sell the old website to Mr. Shekelberg.
I can not believe you bunch of faggots are just now realizing this. the media has been doing this forever. all of them using the same script that the other one uses.
>biggest scandal in video games industry ever
>not allowed to be discussed on the video games board
Seriously, what the fuck is going on?
but how is this different in any way to what the media is already doing? this literally videogame specific oriented. if this was mass media like cnn, fox etc.. then i agree it would be a happenning. i guess i cant really talk since im just now hearing about this but seriously, theyre just videogames. how do they affect you in any way? what are the implications of this?
>hurr some people control the media
Well no fucking shit, sherlock. What really scares me is how none of you guys even suspected this.
I mean for fucks sake, has no one here ever played Deus Ex? There will always be power-hungry people in this world, and they're smart enough to know how to keep their intentions hidden.
The question is: Will you sit on your ass and do nothing all day, or will you actually fight for a better tomorrow and uncover the corruption that goes on around us?
Because they're so fucking retarded they think conservative is a slur that instantly discredits their opponents.
It's easier than having to engage with their arguments (which someone could EASILY do with that video in particular.)
They fucking collude on the daily whenever they are slightly exposed. I wonder how many 5 month old bomb threat stories are going to crop up over the next 48 hours, or something similar.
People were most likely never expecting an actual Journalist to actually one day investigate this shit.
"Oh games are for kids no one will ever take it seriously!"
They never had to cover their tracks because everyone is either part of the narrative or consider video games too kiddish to care.
And /pol/ thinks it has nothing to do with them.
ARE YOU SATISFIED? DO YOU LIKE THIS FUTURE YOU HAVE CHOSEN?
fok aff nigga.
BAN ME MOTHERFUCKER
>inb4 i get banned
If the people on that mailing list own stocks in vidya firms, they are unbelievably screwed.
This is getting interesting.
Well it was obvious that you can't trust these gaming websites.
I mean FFS they gave near perfect ratings for garbage games.
I stopped caring about them years ago.
>Ask why the sudden change in policy
>Extrapolate because of lack of info, can only assume the worst
>DING DONG BANNU
I've been on 4chan for a decade, and I'm finally ready to leave it.
You know remember all the mods have tumblr's/mals/reddits/facebooks because the only way for them to be accepted by moot is for him to have information on them, and they're the kind of faggots who blog daily so they got picked.
Solidus did nothing wrong
the thing with the child soldiers is debatable though
So the SJW cultural marxists, publishers/gaming rags and black budget behavioral scientists are all in bed with each other. Over video games. Something that was, in the 80s and 90s, a completely innocuous hobby. To what end? To push an agenda? Nobody buys that shit. I don't like games about lesbian feels made by fat transracial furries. I don't think anybody does. Money? The blockbuster model works without collusion. People don't go to see Transformers because of the reviews. The darpa angle, well... that's the only angle I do understand. Data is data.
MOOOOOT For any amount of love you've ever had for us, please get rid of these faggot mods!
WHEN DOES IT END?!
MOOT HAS SOME FUCKING EXPLAINING TO DO.
>mods stop deleting threads
>w-we w-were just trolling with you guys kek can i pls stay a mod?
MOOT EXPLAIN THIS SHIT NOW.
TRANSPARENCY OR YOU FOREVER KILL 4CHAN'S BASEDNESS
FUCKING KIKE FAGGOTS
>mods did nothing wrong
Too late for damage control, they admitted to be pushing SJW agenda.
This is the end for 3 giants.
4chan as order is coming in the form a gender relocation
Game journalist will be replace by youtubers and other that actually play the fucking games.
A certain company that I work for as once the last thread reveal their hand into this they have no choice but to create a new branch and destroy the old one that I'm part of. They just recycle me, give me a new title and I'll see how can I grease up this idiots like we did we this morons. It funny to see whatever value and self respect this people had just wash away with brides and cheap women.
Remember, the main target of games are kids and teens, putting propaganda on it goes along the way to help shaping e/or make people more open to certain ideas. Basically they're social engineering using games.
Of course, their policies can lead back to the same shit of cultural marxism that Jews used to mostly study in.
Even the head editor of Escapist went onto his forums and talked about Frankfurt.
All Solidus had to do was keep his fucking trap shut. None of the "I kill your parents," shit.
After the whole Manifesto by the Colonel/ Arsenal Gear/Etc, I was wanting to join him.
>That mod has no fucking clue what the discussion is even about.
The mod is infected by the same groupthink that's controlling the journalists. The question is whether moot is going to come back tomorrow "enlightened" or pissed off.
This shit is too fucking far.
We need to riot. I was against this option, because it would just piss off the apathetics and set them against us, but the mods seem intent to ruin this site and turn it into a PC playground.
I also recommend everyone flood moot's inbox complaining about this shit.
I wish there was a way to report rogue mods, this is cancer if I have ever seen it.
Imagine that he values procrastination as much as the rest of us.
>"aw fuck, I don't want to deal with this shit"
I don't blame him
no fucking wonder /v/ never has any vidya threads
the kikes are destroying everything we love
and fuck you guys, smoking dank and playing mario party with the niggas is as fun as fishing or hunting
He's right, it's fake.
She is a public figure. Every goddamn public figure gets bomb threats if they are holding a public event.
You could right now e-mail a bomb threat on a random celebrity to the local police and they will be forced to respond to said threat.
I'd pay more attention if they actually found a fucking bomb. Otherwise it's just the same as swatting and lame crap like that.
See this image. That is why.
People trying to elevate themselves through political correctness.
Gaming journalists don't give a rat's ass about games like Depression Quest. They care about appearing like saints. They care about reputation, and most of all, they care about money.
Their morale is based on what puts them in the best light, and not what is just or fair. They have no principles, other than to look out for themselves. If the world changed to hate blacks and disbelieve in the holocaust tomorrow, they would follow blindly in their confusion. They wouldn't fucking dare going against the status quo / politically correct.
They don't fucking care about girls in gaming, or anything AT FUCKING ALL. They are fucking void of values and principles. Now they're being called out on it, and they don't like it.
If I was nintendo I'd be fucking nuclear. These sites have been talking shit about the wiiu since day one and now you have proof that there is collusion amongst them.
No wonder nintendo went to the direct format and even tried to cut journos out of E3. Nintendo knew all along and was trying to help us
>Occured before Milo joined
Le ad homs
That doesn't discredit the article in the slightest.
Did you even read the sticky?
That's a fake post.
The real one is talking about how he is rumple-roasted over people reporting the person who was spamming Literally Who's cracked article for spamming/advertisement. All those replies are people calling him an idiot.
He got even more butthurt, then presumably went into IRC and convinced his fellow hotpocket connoisseurs to start banning anything and everything related to gamergate.
There is no conspiracy, this is all the result of a couple of manchildren who got insanely booty-bothered when asked to do their job, and are now ironically doing more work than ever trying to kill these threads out of spite.
>So wait, are we gonna se some lawsuits from this shit? I can't image any game company that's received negative attention from these sites are gonna be happy about this shit
They are probably gonna react if someone tells them.
This is market manipulation
>arstechinca on the list

>still no Doritos Pope
His holiness remains free of sin.
I remember getting Zone of the Enders just for the MGS2 demo.
God damn, was it really 13 years ago? Fuck you Osama. You really fucked everything up. Life wasn't too bad before '01.
Raiden did right, but only from his human point of view. He killed his parents, and after that he got that shitty life, and if he doesn't do it, he'll lost his wife.
Viewing the situation from outside, Solidus was right, but Raiden had personal reasons to kill him.
It's like if someone killed Ghandi because his grandson raped that child, get travel in time and kill Ghandi before having children.
>Gametrailers is fucking scot-free
>It's like if someone killed Ghandi because his grandson raped that child, get travel in time and kill Ghandi before having children.
Looks like we have the plot of the future MGS/Civilization crossover game.
You are massively overstating things.
Partnering up to advertize junk food is not "controlling mainstream media."
It's just some shitty annoying marketing. I didn't buy a 360, I didn't buy Halo 4, I didn't buy Dew or Doritos. It didn't affect me at all.
