So, in light of the recent gaerm jurnalizm developments, what news site CAN i trust? Since i removed all of the biased shit off of my favorites.
>Watching the Jewy Puerto Rican
>[on Anita Sarkeesian] Whether she's a hardcore gamer or not she is entitled to her opinion. She says she's a gamer. She says she has a love/hate relationship with gaming because of what she finds offensive. Whatever. It doesn't matter. That's not the point that I'm trying to make. What I'm trying to point out is the gross overreaction that some people had to somebody challenging the status quo. Somebody with a dissenting opinion. Somebody with a different point of view.
You don't find out how good a sausage-makers sausages are by asking the sausage-maker. You ask the people that have tasted the sausage-makers sausages.
Actually no, all reviewers are basing their review on their personal preferences that more than likely do not match your own. Reviews are utterly useless unless talking about major glitches and bugs that make the game virtually unplayable.
Oh not much.
Why the fuck are you reading video game critics to begin with?
You live in an age where you can literally just type "<game name> gameplay" into your browser's address bar, and you will have several videos to look through to see if it's worth playing
And even if that were to fail, you can just pirate the game
They originated on 7v/, evn though they won't admit it for obvious reasons.
They're very fucking based.
I honestly though / was 7*shift in every keyboard ever.
No scandi but euro, anyway.
any of them will do since you're dumb faggot who can't form your own opinion and need other people to tell you what is ok and not ok
This is assuming an opinion is a pass for having a shit idea.
PETA has their opinion, are they right? Fuck no they are not. So having an opinion does not justify having a shit idea. Anita has a shit opinion, plain and simple.
This guy >>259834295 is right, no one needs gaming journalism anymore.
Developers "leak" info all the time, interviews are just canned PR, previews are on Youtube, gameplay is on Youtube. Ignore the idiots who think they deserve $50K/year for writing bullshit and get the information directly.
So I'm planning to make a video. I'd like thoughts on this.
Right now, the Zoe side is derailing this whole thing into a "gaming hates women and feminism" shitshow. This is obviously bad for us, and while we keep talking about journalism, and we have tons of evidence of the corruption, it's easy for them to ignore it since we don't have a smoking gun.
Thing is, we've been concentrating so hard on the positive coverage of Zoe that I think we've missed something far more damning. Our goal is to show that the gaming press is insular, incestuous, untrustworthy, isn't it? Surely the response to this entire scandal is rock solid proof of that.
So. A video. It'll be aimed mostly at non-/v/ types, and the goal will be to get the normals and the SJW crowd angry at and untrusting of Zoe and her allies. I think this is doable. Here are the points I'd like to cover:
1: Zoe Quinn doesn't care about women. She exploits feminist causes for her own gain.
2: The coverage of certain events in this scandal have been very different from comparable events in the past. Contrasting TFYC and Anita will show that the press is on Zoe's side, not on the side of women.
3: The anti-feminism angle has been completely manufactured by the gaming press.
4: There has been a consistent effort (and conspiracy) to suppress discussion and only allow it within the above manufactured narrative.
5: 4chan has done more to close the gender gap in video games than Zoe and her allies.
I tried to be a good citizen once by watching MSNBC. Unfortunately I picked the day when some ugly stupid old blonde bitch came on flapping about her hundred-year-old mom- wants to see a woman become President. This is why i should vote for Hillary Clinton -- a disgrave to humankind who kept running in 2008 even when the money ran out because she knew her debt would fuck over Obama.
And you think you're entitled to honest video game reviews? It ain't gonna happen. Not in America at least. Look to other hemispheres for common sense.
as if there aren't enough threads on this
Gaming Everything for just straight up video game news
Am I twittering right? I've never found a need to do this, and I'm pretty sure she's never going to respond to the Metacritic thing here >>259838653.
I'd say Angry Joe and TotalBiscuit to be honest, at least they do seem to be honest and try to be objective while explaining as well as showing the good and bad parts of a game.
No matter what you think of them, this is at least true.
You guys are pathetic fucking children, the only websites that are to not be trusted in light of what's been happening are any sites owned by Gawker Media. inb4 "HURR!! DONT TRUST SITES THAT ARENT TALKING ABOUT IT!!", just because they aren't talking about it doesn't mean they are on one side or the other, they are playing is safe and smart and waiting for the opportune moment to report on the issue once they acquire enough strong information from reliable sources.
We need to push indie devs to speak out about what they know that might expose more of this corruption, once more people in or related to the industry start spilling their guts is when bigger gaming websites might start taking quotes and reporting this.
>tfw when Vivian in her original line of artwork looks so much like an old ex of mine in everything but the markings under her eyes
Never thought I'd feel melancholy while on /v/.
you shouldn't trust any news site, the only news thats not bought by big corerations is last night tonight on hbo because nigger hbo has money comming out of there ass. But anyway you should never trust news, you should be watching and formulating your own opinion through the information given not blindly eating shit
/v/ I improved your daughturu. You're welcome.
>lurking Zoe Threads for evidence
Hah, that's a good one
All I see are videos talking about this shit, and images 'documenting' shit
>>259839359 for example doesn't show her doxxing or instigating a DDOS
She's clearly happy about it, and that makes her a bit of a cunt, but that's not what she's being accused of
That bitch is old and busted. How do you like my new slice on the side? I've got the beginnings of a harem.
>if you play games you are cool with me.
That t-shirt is worse than Hitler.
More like she doesn't give a fuck about any of that shit and just wants to play games.
They removed the shirt.
Also, there's a new design that just says "lets just play already" or something along those lines.
>English is not my native language.
>Gaming sites in my native language only talk about videogames.
>No shitty clickbait articles.
It sure would suck to be an American or an native English speaker right now.
The point of not caring is you don't tell people you don't care. Also, the context of the "I don't care" means "yay, I'm so tolerant, I love gay, fat, ugly and queer people, yay!"
>Anita Sarkeesian has an opinion and we should respect that
>Hitler had an opinion and we should respect that
Her op-onions are real-time opressing men while she cries being "oppressed" by men.
im not sure if this is off topic but this just in
(sage just in case)
Oy fucking vey, what the fuck is this? How can they pander to racist, homophobic anti-Semites. Someone call my lawyer.
All Games Beta
They're the only two I can think of that were smart enough to completely forgo opinion articles.
It's amazing how much better they are than your typical big name sites because of it.
I've been telling everyone for days now that I want to make a review site. I'm still figuring shit out and what not, but it's going to need money, and depending on the size of it, it's going to need a lot of money.
Gimme your ideas, once I have a solid as fuck plan and have done my research, I'll make a kickstarter/indiegogo or something for funding.
Well they have to talk about games. How are you going to know What games you guys aren't getting in your country
THIS IS IMPORTANT
What you said has been great but you missed something important.
Mention what she did to wizard chan. She bullied a site full of depressed people to promote her game which is supposed to help the depressed. It's easily the most scummy thing she's done and also exposes how she got attention in the first place as well as exposing journalists for going with that story
I haven't been to /v/ in months.
Concise, focused on games and interested/knowledgeable in the economics, at least in the Japanese market. Most importantly, it doesn't mention any kind of social/equality bullshit.
Literally the only page you faggots should use.
>You don't find out how good a sausage-makers sausages are by asking the sausage-maker. You ask the people that have tasted the sausage-makers sausages.
The only sausage /v/ eats is shlongwurst.
I agree on totalbiscuit but I pretty much dropped Angry Joe when I saw his Alpha Protocol review.
Did he ever fix that? It was really weird... I recall him firing with a pistol beyond efficient range for a minute and acting bored, the entire time I was screaming GET CLOSER YOU ASSHAT.
Then he said something about how you can't actually play the game any way you want, and I believe he challenged people to beat the game with pistols as one of their weapons, which is hilarious since pistols are the most powerful weapon in the game.
I thought joystiq was good thought they're pretty chummy with some people like Rami Ismail, though when he's on their podcast he never says any retarded shit. Like people shouldn't make games in english because they have english privilege.
Youtube and /v/.
Youtube to watch gameplay videos and /v/ to tell me that it might be shit or might be good.
After going through those I think about it and make my desicion
The CEO of Destructoid is directly paying, via Patreon, a PR woman who is representing Zoe Quinn among other developers at the upcoming PAX Prime.
Just look at http://www.p4rgaming.com/the-truth-about-video-game-journalism-readers-youre-all-stupid-but-please-keep-reading-our-stuff/, how can one site be so based?
And it is more acurate than polygon or kotaku anyway
>messed up ex-boyfriend decided to investigate the guys she slept with then "they were broken up" -playerone podcast
I wonder if anyone ever considered reverse trolling Anita on twitter, with hundreds of tweets, saying that the vast majority of donators on her tropes v. women kickstarter were actually from 4chan, donating to her as a way to incite anger from another faction in the board.
To fuck with her, on her policy of taking donations from 4chan; ala dirty money.
And then we ask her to comment on how she feels, now knowing, that her kickstarter was funded by dirty money.
