Okay, the thread can start now.
reminder to laugh at SJWs and trolls alike
We need to compile info for Leigh Off Alexander.
Post the shitty stuff she did, archives and especially live links preferred to pictures (but those are good too)
Insufferable bleeding idiots detected.
1.Chris is so far up lego's ass to care about any of this. You could almost say he hardly gives a shit about video games.
2. If he did give a shit about any of this going on, he would be siding with Zoe unconditionally because of the cry of Trolls on the internet.
3. That isn't Chris' twitter.
Watch out for Zoe Quinn!
The enemy of gaming #1
She is main responsible...
Cheating on her boyfriend with at least 5 different people
Fucking her PR agent
Fucking the judge of one contest she was a finalist in
Fucking two judges of a separate contest she won
Fucking gaming news journalists to help her cover up the aforementioned acts
Intentionally sabotaging at least three charities for feminism and colon cancer
Sabotaging a fourth charity and getting a major figure in the gaming industry fired as a bonus
Setting up a scam to replace those charities
Stealing the money donated to said charities
Planning to set up a charity for victims of trolling and probably steal the money from that too
Faking a mugging to ask for pity donations
Fucking her married boss to advance at her job
Getting several websites shut down by her personal army
Sexually harassing a man and using intimidation tactics to make him apologize for exposing her
Raping her boyfriend
Threatening to kill herself if her boyfriend exposed her
Convincing her mentally ill boyfriend he was going crazy when he suspected her of cheating
Faking her own doxing and hacking
Convincing various sites to suppress bad press about her using her connections
Making up sob stories about abuse to keep people from exposing her
Threatening to ruin people's careers for exposing her
Faking harassment to promote a game about depression
Silencing people with depression when they criticize it
Creating a game using something that can't be considered programming
Starting a raid of a site for people with depression to promote her depression game
Stealing a game
Capitalizing on the death of Robin Williams to promote her game
Pretending that online trolling has left her homeless
Her ultimate goal is to kill games.
However, you can stop her. Spread this list!
TONIGHT WE GAME IN HELL
reminder that japanese games are inferior and will never be good
Reminder that people tend to believe her bullshit IRC "10 people control the universe" theory
Reminder it makes them look like retarded truthers
Reminder to use this to make them look even more retarded than they already do
It's a complicated mix of both. The problem isn't explicitly one thing or the other, but one major issue is the cliquishness, which the Left interprets as institutionalized misogyny. The cliques reject a lot of people, the lack of women are just apparent because these cliques formed from mostly men and it's the easiest metric to measure. Judging from the Indie dev circlejerk this whole thing uncovered, it's a very real issue in the industry. The issue is just worse than institutionalize misogyny or racism, it's inbred nepotism and circlejerking. It cuts out more than just the women and minorities, it cuts out everyone who doesn't conform to the clique.
The term "Good Ol' Boys Club" is a favorite term of feminist activists for industries they say have institutionalized misogyny, but the truth of the matter is that those boys clubs discriminate against any outsider. Misogyny is a symptom, not the cause. Efforts to reduce alleged institutionalized misogyny in the games industry hasn't done anything to fix the actual problem.
iFred responds. way to go, idiots of yesterday.
"To all those asking about the Depression Quest game. To clarify, as of yesterday we were not aware of any donations made on behalf of the game. However, it was brought to our attention that donations were made by an individual, and we can confirm these donations were made as stated here: http://ohdeargodbees.tumblr.com/post/97275528664/depression-quest-donations
Additionally, we were aware that there was a link to our organization as it has sent many people needing help to our website for education and resources. We weren't aware of any direct relationship to donations, though we welcome and are thankful for support given to our organization through this effort. We do not endorse the game but we do see it has done a lot to raise awareness for depression and hope to use some of the gaming skills to create tools we think teach kids about the importance of hope and health brains.
To those that have made donations in the past day because you thought Depression Quest did not donate, we are happy to refund those donations and we plan to follow-up directly on paypal with that note as well. We would appreciate if you can share this information with your networks so we can get back to our work with the limited resources we do have at hand - teaching and sharing hope, and ending stigma. If you haven't done so, please do check out our new www.schoolsforhope.org program and get involved in your local community.
Thanks much for all that have been reaching out to ensure transparency and accountability. We appreciate the support of our mission and wish you all health and healing. Thanks for helping to #shinelight #endstigma #sharehope. Let's all get back to making a positive impact on the world!"
You guys are fags who are accomplishing nothing. Every day, the threads get slower and as the kiddies get tired of piling on every post with "shill" and "$10," more reasonable voices (namely the ones calling you fucking retard faggots) get a stronger foothold. Every little attempt to character assassinate and every criminal allegation keeps getting shut down. No dialogue has been created whatsoever and no plan of action has surfaced. You pick on the smallest of the small frys in the industry in hopes of getting a reaction. You aligned with people who used you for publicity and money...they'll be gone once they've got theirs and don't give a fuck about what you want. When it all blows over, this will be an unequivocal failure. And we'll all be right here to call you fedora'd fags who are the most beta virgins in the universe till the end of time...
Reminder Gawker needs to burn.
Continue sending emails.
I have two questions
1.) In the case of Sharky lying about contacting the police department, I understand that apparently she's in conversation with the FBI. Does this completely blow this whole thing apart? I can't imagine that if she had faked the death threats that she would be dumb enough to contact the FBI, it could be traced back to her. Am I right to assume we've all been BTFO by that? I can't imagine what exactly Nero is supposed to be finding out from the FBI at this point.
2.) On Literally Who, I understand that she apparently DID donate some money. But, if memory serves me right, it was only two donations in September and a few in August right around the time the Five Guys incident happened, the only evidence being that screencap of her inbox. Is she still fucked? You can't just start a fundraiser and make personal donations to an organization without ironing out legal details right?
Yeah I can't wait for Detective Autismo or Tabloid Man to dig something up, have all you retards go apeshit, and then have it turn out to be false again!
Jesus christ guys we need to break this stupid ass cycle.
Cute/sexy anime girls are the perfect defense against shills.
So Ben Kuchera denied DeviEver an interview following the latter's view on GamerGate:
How can we continue to hurt these shitty journos?
Reminder to praise GNAA for being
KNOCKIN' NIGGAZ SENSELESS LIKE ELVIS AT A HEMPFEST
Yeah i was already in when that happened. 10 articles in 24-36 hour period claiming the same shit.
And nobody can see how it was all staged. And then they claim this all started on 4chan so dismiss it.
THESE FUCKING PEOPLE ARE SO BRAINWASHED THEY CANT SEE ANYTHING.
They take claims as facts when they're Pro their side
And take Facts as claims because they dislike the source
And i have to say we're not to far away from that shit either.
That milo shit from yesterday was another fucking thing.
We open the champagne to celebrate before anybody serious has actually confirmed anything.
Their corruption is shitty... but sort of softer. They fly people around and buy them drinks. Plus they EXIST TO SELL SHIT.
The Journo's EXIST TO TELL TRUTH. The fact that one is trying it's hardest to do what it is meant to, and the other is failing at its core reason for existing is important.
Fuck, I can't even type out the word "journalist" half the time when talking about them.
What gets me the most is how they refuse to admit that gameing journalism needs the same integrity as "real" journalism. They want to skate by with writing puff pieces that take three hours after playing a game for 30. No. I'm sorry fuckers but no. You decided to make this a CAREER. You can't treat it the same as you did when it was a hobby. I know that sucks, but to bad.
The game developers are a good example of this. You think they want to work 20 hour days and sleep under their desks to meet deadlines? Fuck no, they'd rather take their time and have nothing but FUN. But they made a CAREER out of their PASSION. And part of that is living up to a certain standard.
I'm aware that a lot of games are fucking late all the time, but I do know a lot of people work stupid long hours too.
Public Service Announcement:
Remember stay focused on the emails, the main enemy here is the gaming journalism trying to push a retarded agenda using corruption as mean to achieve such.
Those people don't like you , fun or video games.
Keep that in mind, you are not here for petty dramas, if there is something with possibility to flip the table, don't publish here, shills and SJW are here 24/7 to blow the whistle and make us look bad.
Send it to journalists that you trust.
>mfw people pay $10 and aren't even allowed to talk about cute anime grils
You haven't shut down shit. You haven't provided any evidence to show that any of the criminal allegations are false, while we've provided ample evidence in our favor. You're just using lawsuit threats to try to stop the truth from getting out.
You're going to fail.
Guys, I think Gamergate's moving into a critical phase. The groundgame we're doing is excellent. If you had told me two weeks ago that we sacked Polygon like Atilla did to Rome, I'd think you guys were crazy. But the campaign is working. We're hitting their wallets.
I was just talking to my cousin who works at a big ad agency here in NYC. He basically told me that what we're doing would cause a huge-short term windfall, but because we're hitting major outlets in a relatively small field (games media) the companies are battening down the hatches. Given the atomsphere of the market, though, they'll survive. We've wounded the shit out of them, but they'll survive.
He told me something that resonates. The only way we're going to be able to step up and challenge these fucks is to literally build a fucking aggregate site. Kotaku for hardcore gamers, essentially. Goodgamers is a start, but we're not going to be able to take them on until we've gone corporate too. Now might be the time.
Not trying to divert discussion, just trying to look for new solutions.
the person who tweeted Whoopi Goldberg was Ironbackhand.
Which is another issue I have with the current state of this movement, there are several of us who want this to be their get-rich-quick scheme, they see this and think they can become an internet star. Some of the more vocal members are trying to use this to gain popularity for themselves, which is fucking dumb. This isn't about getting more twitch followers or youtube likes, it's about cleaning up fucking journalism. Don't fucking harass the whos because you think it'll make you seem cool and hip, just focus on contacting sponsors and calling out the journalists on their hypocrisy.
>only faggots pushing this is the ED forums
Those mother fuckers.
>dis is foh muh boyfriend tyfagx
Nobody said investigate numbnuts. There's plenty of stuff on her already floating around these threads (the megaphone comment, the one pictured in the picture, her patreon links), we just need to compile it.
>paying to not talk about cute anime girls
I don't understand.
He says he doesn't want to be associated with it because of all the harassment.
This comes a few weeks after his video saying, "you shouldn't paint all gamers as sexist/racist/etc because a few bad apples."
THIS DID NOT FUCKING HAPPEN. STOP SAYING IT.
PEOPLE DISCOVERED THINGS YOU DIDN'T WANT THEM TO FIND AND YOU THREATENED THEM. ZOE AND ANITA HAVE STILL VERY LIKELY BROKEN THE LAW IN MULTIPLE WAYS, ALONG WITH FAGGOT PHIL FISH.
SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GO AWAY.
Nobody cares about some stupid bitch who made a single poor game that only became known because she tastelessly decided to take advantage of Robin Williams death.
>only faggots pushing this is the ED forums
ED is pro-gamergate, faggot
there still at it
oh hey look, another opportunist who is going to leech off you guys. BETTER FOLLOW HIM BLINDLY BECAUSE HE IS GIVING YOU MILD VALIDATION.
You faggots love superficial validation.
this is what they pay to shill on the internet.
The worst part of this whole thing is that the shills won. /v/ is now so paranoid about being raided that anyone with a dissenting opinion that says something even as harmless as "Whoa guys, let's not jump the gun here" gets shouted down for being a "shill," and only the craziest posts are listened to.
/v/ is its own worst enemy.
This is not about Who anymore. This is about honest and credible gaming journalism and waving off social justice and feminism in the video game community and industry.
Focus on the prize Anon!
DIDN'T I JUST TELL YOU PEOPLE TO GET TO WORK ON THOSE EMAILS?!
LET'S FUCKING GO. ITS THE WEEKEND. YOU DON'T HAVE SHIT TO DO. SEND EMAILS. FLOOD THOSE MOTHERFUCKER'S INBOXES. WHEN THEY COME INTO WORK ON MONDAY, THEY'LL SEE THE SHIT.
NO MORE STUPID INTERNET DETECTIVE SHIT.
CALM DOWN WITH THE TWITTER WARS
BEFORE YOU JUMP INTO ACTION AND FOLLOW WHAT YOU SEE A SHILL SAYS TO DO, FUCKING THINK.
"HOW DOES THIS HELP GAMERGATE"
"DOES THIS HURT GAMERGATE"
"IS MY TIME BETTER SPENT DOING SOMETHING ELSE"
LET'S GET THIS SHIT DONE. NO MORE TUNNEL VISION, NO MORE DISTRACTIONS. TAKE THE MONEY AWAY.
I LOVE YOU ALL.
4chan is better than twitter. Seriously twitter is just as bad if not worse than /b/.
>Pays $10 to shitpost on a Chinese weaboo website made by a 15 year old
The saddest thing about this is that inevitably all the answers you'll get will be "$10" and "fuck off shill".
Some of us are starting to get organised outside of 4chan and get our shit together before this crapbomb blows up and clusterfucks everyone around it.
Hopefully we'll get it done on time.
The one thing I have to disagree, though, is about who GG allied itself with. Right now any help is welcome.
So, uh, thanks for the downer copy-pasta. We shouldn't forget our errors.
I'm not even trying to start anything but a discussion. There are way more savvy people here than me. The only thing I'd throw is money at it, just like I threw 300 of my hard-earned shill-bills at TYFC
Has there been ANY fucking connection that doubefines retarded site was done in by ANYBODY connected to #gamergate or 4chan?
AT ALL? or is this another just claim random shit hope people believe you?
So did anything ever come from Milo talking with the SFPD about Anita's claim that she called them or is he still working on it
Until everyone fucking sees it, to better understand the origins of this intellectual & political cancer.
>"This isn't exciting or funny, but it is necessary. Please watch until the end."
I think it is more reasonable to create a network of alternative outlets than a single site. Big name sites are dying overall and we as consumers can rely more on each other for proper media and journalism. Blogs, youtube channels, etc are all new ways to get legit content.
1) We don't know, but it's out of our hands. Let big brother handle it.
2) I think we all greatly overestimated how much money LW made off DQ, given how much it was talked about, when we got excited about catching her in a lie. Given how small fry she ended up being (it was like, what, $2k all together?), it really doesn't seem like she should get more than a stern lecture.
>all those followers
Have we started the fire?
Firing people all across the board is not the ethical thing to do if there are no ethical guidelines in the first place. Pretty sure there's something like that in the Constitution or Bill of Rights, where you can't be convicted of a crime if the law is created after the "crime" is committed.
If a site (i.e. The Escapist) instates an ethical guideline, it should be the responsibility of the reporter to retroactively edit their articles to reflect conflicts of interest or delete said articles. If they write pieces afterward that violate the ethical guidelines, they should be reprimanded.
I mean, let's be honest here. Even if the main sites that posted those articles came clean, they're never going to be accepted again. We will always remember those articles and hate them forever for it.
We're going to hate the SJWs for their arrogance and elitism. There might be a place in gaming for them, but it'll probably be in the basement away from everyone else. We won't want them around lecturing us about the morality of things while being hypocrites.
If this is a movement of anything, it's a movement of rejection. Of hate and anger towards people that have shown that they do not have any respect for us at all. They just said the wrong fuckign thing and got their asses kicked.
>Am I right to assume we've all been BTFO by that? I can't imagine what exactly Nero is supposed to be finding out from the FBI at this point.
We haven't been BTFO because she specifically tweets about local police being incompetent, despite the fact that they already know about her case since she called back in March. Even if it is escalated to the FBI, the SFPD would document it. They've done their part, she lied about it.
>You can't just start a fundraiser and make personal donations to an organization without ironing out legal details right?
Yep. She made a 24 hour donation tumblr two days ago. The donations ifred received came under a private name, not Depression Question. This is dishonest and misleading to those who purchased the game with the intent to donate. As it stands literally who is engaging in money laundering and might be on grounds for an investigation
It's less /v/ and more faggots like MundaneMatt and that other fat, balding asshole (whatever his name was) who see someone post a tidbit of information and then immediately rev up their webcams so they can post a video about it within five minutes. They're literally the youtube version of clickbait. Suddenly before /v/ can even compile and verify any information there's now dozens of videos up with gamergate in the tags about how some feminist literally raped and killed a girl in 1990, making us all look like retards when it turns out to be a dead end.
How mad are the SJWs that they have to shill this site 24/7 because they can't censor it like all the other websites they have their dirty hipster claws into?
But we have better journos, the people who browse /v/ and review/talk about games are better than people with paid roles more than ten fold.
And that's just the wankers that browse /v/, there are still a few that Browse Reddit or other faggy websites that have better shit to say than Video game "Journalists" and when they shit on a game you like they give you an answer other than:
>I didn't like it
>offended by transphobia
>not enough womyn
>i didn't understand the story therefore it's bad
>i didn't understand the story therefore it's good
>despite no actual meaning relating gameplay to story, this story driven game with no actual meaning in its story is the best game I have played all year.
I am personally just sick of this 72nd rate "journalism" that we get these days, it is shameful how few people who cover games actually care about games.
What's up with this and the STOP INVESTIGATING messages going on recently? What's with this presenting "make imgur images" as if it's a new idea when we're a goddamn MONTH in? What the literal fuck? What have you fucking faggots been doing?
There's only a handful of roles we have and things we can do, and we've been doing all of them in various quantities this past month. There's emailing advertisers and PR in Disrespectful Nod, there's finding and comparing information, and there's consolidating information in videos/infographics. That's literally it, outside of hype posters, reminder posters, and shitposters.
How the fuck do you think this shit got to where it was? The gamergate hashtag came along because Baldwin started it, and censorship caused Streissand effect, but what the fuck did we do to get it to that point?
We made VIDEOS.
We made INFOGRAPHICS.
We DUG and we INVESTIGATED.
IA did nothing wrong. He investigated and said "what the fuck is this shit none of this lines up at all and look theres personal connections and they think there's no problems". This message resonated to over 1.5M views. The REAL CL/SFO problem is whoring, hyping, and making too deep an allegation with too poorly cited sources. The REAL problem from yesterday is instead of "what the fuck iFred and SFPD said they dont know anything" people went "YOU LIED CHARITY FRAUD CONFIRMED".
>The problem is /v/ thinks it can obtain something akin to a killswitch. Therefore, people will present things they found as hawkers selling killswitches.
That's all. Nothing else is wrong.
If anything a lot of anons probably are withholding new information or infographics they made because they don't want to be shouted down as shills by you fucking retards mis-identifying the real issue behind jumping the gun. If people find something they find important, bring it forward. If it's time-sensitive then send it to Milo instead or something. Just be smart about what you're doing.
About what? Disrespectful Nod has worked with some advertisers, so clearly emailing people with power over these idiots will work.
We don't need new info, just compile what's already out there.
Have you considered that being in talks with the FBI isn't a positive thing for her?
If she can't prove she got actual death threats, she's fucked. If they look at evidence and trace it back to her or someone she knows, she's fucked.
Understand these people are idiots. They've gotten as far as they have because, quite simply, nobody ever thought to question their bullshit. That they would fake any of this shit with the full expectation of never getting caught is entirely within the realm of possibility.
They coast through life by screaming hypocritical nonsense and utilizing shaming tactics. Understanding that actions have consequences is something they're only now coming to understand.
>Not full beard
Get testosterone, silly boys.
Shit man, I never wanted in. I like playing games. I once thought about writing about them. But you know what? I figured the act of writing about them in a serious way would derail my fun. So I decided not to. I have a different career that's fine by me. But why didn't these dumb assholes figure out making something their career must change it? At least SOME of them have journalism degrees they ignore. Why don't they have any clue that they should have approached this career like any other branch of journalism?
WHY THE FUCK ARE WE GOING BACK IN TIME.
HOW ARE OUR ENEMIES FUCKING SOMETHING AWFUL AND THE GNAA???
WHY IS MADOXX RELEVANT?
ANY MORE OF THIS AND WE'LL BE IN FUCKING USENET TERRITORY!
I know this is getting into /soc/ territory, but does anybody feel that its appropriate that we do a #notyourshield collage?
There's plenty of minorities that browse /v/ and 4chan as a whole, something which SJWs don't realize. Would be amazing if we could shut them up once and for all.
Good thing I'm becoming sturdier by reading these everyday.

Who the fuck isn't currently doing that. I'm doing that right now in another thread. Cool fucking story esse.
I wish we had Quentin back, at least he isn't a complete fuck up, and there is always ironic value that can be extracted from his opinion graphics.
We've made some missteps, but don't give up hope, together we can actually change things to be better. TOGETHER /v/ for vidya games.
Keep up the emails, it's our best weapon; let Milo do the legwork for journalistic stuff, and DON'T explode when you hear something that could be damning.
There are already a dozen small tech/vidya sites that were either niche or popped up as a direct result of gamergate. We don't need any more sites, we just need to give traffic to the ones that already exist.
hey man lets coordinate on MSN messenger
If anyone wants to read up on the progressive mentality and its repeated failures throughout history this is the place to start. Know your enemy.
They're all part of the same SJW Cultural Marxism mafia, of course they're trying to shill for their cash cow circlejerk. That's why calling advertisers is the best way to fight them, it's hurting them where it really matters.

>WHY THE FUCK ARE WE GOING BACK IN TIME.
cus you didn't set your watches back like
you were supposed to. now, hop in the phone booth already.
So /v/ you have two choices:
1) You can end all vidya corruption and defeat the feminist plague forever
2) A loving superhot femdom mistress (2D or 3D, your choice) dresses you up in QT sissy dress and chastity cage and takes care of you forever.
you can only pick one and the other option is guaranteed to never happen ever.
Investigator reporting. Your supposition that information is being withheld is correct. I'm waiting for the proper time to drop it, and also for people to grow up a little. Just a little.
So you are saying that making games is too hard. In order to have access to the 100 billion dollar a year industry, we need to redefine "games" to include shit that isn't nearly as difficult to make as a game. such as an interactive HTML-esque game about depression or some such dopey ass idea.
The bar is set high or else everyone and his asshole sister would be doing it. lower the bar sufficiently and suddenly Leigh Alexander IS games journalism, Zoe Quinn is a fucking game dev and Tim Schaeffer is looking you right in the eye and saying 3.5 million dollars is not enough money to make an indie game.
>this womyn's breasts are too big
I hate current game journalism. Been hating it for a long time. Was waiting for something like GG. All other shit was too small to make a big deal out of. But since Reddit and even /v/ decided to delete stuff early on, it blew up.
This. We need one or two to gain good identities as a mainstream basic news outlet. One we can support. One that can gain access to developers, but remembers the line.
Fuck if the Indie's need exposure, start a fucking email account for completed Indie games to submit for review. Don't suckle each others teets, just ask for a review. It's not goddamn fucking hard.
It turned out that GG threads are infested with idiots who jump the gun one "Discovery" after the other.
So basically these messages are to hold on a little bit with the investigations, or at least with the disclosure of those investigations. Last fuckup is still fresh.
If you want to keep investigating, by all means, do so, but don't share it on /v/ because /v/ nowdays means /v/egetables. Send your stuff to Milo Yannopoulos, he's Journalising our stuff. He's a right winger and is most likely doing this for his own purposes but I doubt he wouldn't want to help expose an SJW clique of agenda pushers and bullies.
THIS is how they try and get us down?
By recruiting all of our old enemies to try and challenge us?
I swear, if Boxxy and Slaughter come back to be the face of anti Gamergate, I'm gonna fucking go tinfoil.
You know what all this boils down to? Politics. They're holding a staunch political view, something many of them have openly stated. There is also a large body of evidence that they actively try to ostracize and harass devs and people in the gaming community who disagree with their political platform. Given that these people represent their respective companies and have a direct impact on prospective game devs' success, isn't this a case of political persecution? Isn't this against the American constitution?

Remember, if this were the 1990s, we would be fighting conservatives.
This is NOT about keeping X group out of video games, nor about the personal lives of the people involved.
* This is about keeping irrelevant politics out of video game news.
* This is about keeping corrupt journalists and developers out of the industry.
* This is about keeping the press from dictating art and public sentiment.
* This is about keeping video game news about fucking video games.
If you want to see how the non-gamer portion of the internet feels about gamergate, check out these Reddit thread, now with more sanctimonious hand wringing:
The amount of cognitive dissonance and willful ignorance these people go through is amazing.
then i went and read that conversation on twitter and Schaferdrones and defending him. some are even offering to send more money, and calling the tech guy a "dick wad"
fucking twitter man
>rainbow-haired turdblossoms have to start sucking mutant motorcycle raider junk
proud graduate of the AVGN school of dadaist non-sequiturs detected, therefore, WE HAVE A SHILL!
>where did all these shills come from? why now?
>fight censorship shirt
>wife is a tit monster
>fucking handgun on the table
Oh christ, I love this guy so much.
>Oh no, those evil mysognerds have doxxed people!
>oh lol look lets post completely sourceless and unfounded dox info lel kek get owned kid
I love the goons. They make our job so much easier. I don't think they've done a single thing that actually stopped us, let alone actually helped their own team. They mostly sit around "trolling" and making their side look even more stupid.
Aight fags listen up... You need an Identity
Something that unites all the people involved at #GamerGate
We have a lot of shills and bandwagoners
They are not getting who you are through their thick fucking skull
I have worked in PR and HR in my country
You have to settle down who you are in order to get more organized
That way, they won´t be able to frame you anymore
Do this or fragment yourselves
Doxing people thinking people will change their minds. The guy wanted to stay anon.
Good job. You made him unanon. And gave him humanity and character and history and who he is. You literally just made him stronger.
Good job goony googoos.
>your face when ebaum's world comes back and starts stealing content from reddit
This is some biblical shit
I wonder what it's gonna be like after this is all over and people forget what GamerGate was. I'm kind of afraid of SJWs slowly taking over 4chan honestly
"when you're young if you're not a liberal you have no heart. when you're older if you're not a conservative you have no money"
also STFU conservashill. go shill your politics on /pol/. shilly willy.
I know the response this is likely to get, but would it be a terrible idea to maybe request more diversity in their hires?
Because the opposition to GamerGate on the journalism side seems almost ENTIRELY middle class white people, with men in particular leading the large and making up the largest numbers.
It seems to me that for a group that's accusing us of bigotry they're very homogenous, and I don't see anyone challenging that perception or saying hey, maybe one of them should step down and give their job to someone else if the problem is as bad as they say it is.
Cool, just what we need to add to the narrative: another woman gone.
You aren't going to cull the scene a scalp at a time, so I don't see why you're bothering, except to shoot yourselves in the fucking foot.
>get mad faggot
>all this because you could never network hard enough to break into the industry and never attain any position worth mentioning.
devfag here, I did attain many positions worth mentioning. still agree with him. AAA journalism is less toxic and shitty than Kotaku
ivy told me to tell you to watch out for these guys
apparently they're 'professional trolls' and 'doxxers' for hire and the 'leader' of them all wants to have sex with literally who / is a hater of #gamergate
I don't know, she might not because it actually might hurt her fragile ego. She wants to be inflated into something scary or cool...
But sad frog? That's just too lowly for her...and she probably knows that she kinda does look like her and everyone on twitter will think the same way but won't say it, cuz feelings
>and then have it turn out to be false again
what has been "false", shill?
these are facts:
phil fish was funded by people in a position to award him a 1st prize
the "judges" of indiecade/igf are people who have vested interests in entrants of those competitions
ifred and the other charity stated they did not receive any funds from zoe or depression quest
the police have stated anita has not filed a report since march
zoe producing a screencap of emails of donations for unknown amounts for an unknown length of time from an undisclosed email account to only one of charities does not make the above facts "false" and never will
the point of this whole debacle is that the people involved are untrustworthy and questions need to be asked
proving a question "wrong" means nothing
Would you read a gaming journalism site that has the following:
Hosted videos by InternetAristocrat
Editorials by MundaneMatt
Guest Interview with Adam Baldwin
Branded LP's with Jontron
Investigative Pieces by Milo
Reviews generated and editedby /v/irgins with English/Lit/Journo credentials
Guys, this is within our grasp. We should unite these guys in an aggregate.Pay them to host content there. Give them a chance to work at this full time. Get them under a corporate banner, start twerking ad revenue into the GG campaign.
That nigga earlier in the thread was right. Why the fuck did we even bother with TYFC if we probably could've just financed our own fucking aggregate?
We can take back games without even having to engage the SJWs in debate.
Fucking reddit leftists.
>barely writes anything and whines when he has to write shit he doesn't like
>literally makes his money coding other people's work, who write it for free
>People praise him as the greatest thing ever.
Only furries man. Only furries...
>Journos: I'm a reviewer
>Journos: I'm gonna review games I don't like and give bias scores
>Me: Why don't you play something you like instead? Since not only will you enjoy your job then but it will also be worth reading
>Journos: No fuck you "muh soggy knee" my take is better because..because..
>Me: Better because?
>Journos: Because fuck you. Don't like games anyway just want to make money and ruin your hobby.
>Me: Oh okay at least I know you'll never be anything significant so I'll steer clear of your way then.
>12 years later
>Journos: Gamers are dead!!!! Developers don't need you. OMG WTFBBQ Why does everyone hate me. Why are the ratings down. Why are we sinking?
MFW we survived 10 years of these shitty journos and they are now going critical.
I never once cared if you hate or like the games I play but the fact that you never played and reviewed games you would enjoy was pretty hilarious.
That's the whole gaming industry. Because for the longest time that was the interest.
Granted, for various reasons men still have most of the degrees needed for programming. But by now it stands to reason that women SHOULD be catching up in all other aspects. And yet they're still very under represented in the journalistic front. So that's... huh. I don't know where I'm going.
Better yet, they don't know there's
an FBI agent always in these threads since the Fappening and the CP attack.
They're just bitter because they will never get their 10 bucks back
No one knows what "actual evidence" is. If they found a tweet or article, by what criteria is it "actual" or not? The problem IMO is that the conclusions drawn are too far. CL/SFO "Read it again" is retarded, but the 44 tweets of "oops we accidentally DDOSd" is pretty damning. It doesn't have to be legal standards if we're not fighting them in court.
If we can have so many people shouting down investigators, we can have them shout down hypers too. There's various accusations of this or that killing GG, but removing all investigation off /v/ will definitely kill it. Leaving EVERYTHING to Milo/professionals will turn this into just another newspaper story.
People will get disinterested because they're less engaged. Then they'll stop caring.
And that's the real death.
its fucking hilarious, its like were playing a megaman game and now were in the middle of the boss rush.
but the final boss of this is far off, but we can make it.
we can save games, we can even go beyond that and save the world.
I think he got doxxed like three maybe four days ago but his info wasn't disclosed. You'll have to check with him.
PandaBro's basically one of the best and most polite redpillers running around on Twitter.
He's the one that came up with the idea of raising $2k to the suicide hotline when Zee The Queen of vee was a suspect-though-already-considered-guilty-because-fuck-evidence-and-objectiveness-right-guys of not passing a portion of the donations she received from Depression Quest to iFred,
I think that charity run as stupid and people were just throwing money at it to feel better for the massive gunjump they did yesterday.
>Remember, if this were the 1990s, we would be fighting conservatives.
Remember when conservatives were the ones stereotyped as not having a sense of humor? They were the stuffy, uptight people who couldn't take a joke.
Now look at which side doesn't want anybody to make any jokes, which side gets bent out of shape if let slip anything that is slightly politically incorrect.
My how the pendulum has swung.
>Have you considered that being in talks with the FBI isn't a positive thing for her?
I hadn't actually. That's a good point.
>Understand these people are idiots. They've gotten as far as they have because, quite simply, nobody ever thought to question their bullshit.
This is the only thing I'm questioning. If you've delved into their backgrounds, particularly that of Johnathan Mcintosh, it seems that Fem Freq is part of a rather elaborate money-making scheme that he's been trained to do by other people. They've got to have SOME idea about legal blowback and how to fudge it. Or maybe you're right, maybe they got too bold I don't know.
Who cares about the narrative that results from us getting what we want?
It's not like it's our fault it's the women who keep buckling first. Perfect world, it'd equal out by them all going together.
Guys, I'm not saying we need to give up, I'm saying that
gaming journalism is so obsolete I don't see the point in giving the better half of a fuck about it.
They are outperformed in literally every aspect by social media, by forums, by youtubers and twitch streamers.
So why bother with them? Eventually plebs will realize that instead of listening to Carolyn Petit bitch and whine about three male protagonists in GTA V they can just watch a minute or two of LP footage to decide wether they wanna buy the game.
If the government does it, yes. But the government isn't doing it, private organizations are, and at that point, it's freedom of speech and association. Ultimately, if the Press had to treat every little thing that came to the gate with the same weight, it wouldn't be news, it would be a clusterfuck. This is why journalism ethics and standards were created, so that which makes it through the gate into the publication has been vetted and can be reported on faithfully and well.
The use of the games press to take advantage of their position as gatekeeper for the benefit of their friends and bribers is definitely everything against these standards and ethics. How disgustingly unethical it is has driven gamers to these lengths. However, is it illegal? No. It's not. It's not even libel or slander, it's just simple omission or opinion. It's just incredibly scummy and unethical, which cannot be tried in a court of civil law.
I'm 80% sure it was diversity hires that got us into this shit in the first place. Fact of the matter is every journalism needs more diversity hires to make them look good, and gaming journalism is just about the worst "journalism" you can get into. So the diversity hires that are left get you non-gamers pushing shitty agendas that you have to pick up to meet sexual/racial quotas instead of just hiring whoever is the best person for the job.
This is our moment /v/ and friends. They are giygas we have to stop them before they corrupt all art. If you don't know what to do just...pray.
That she is a woman is neither here nor there. The point is to improve the standards the publication/website (in this case, Gamasutra) holds their articles to. The article in question outright attacks the publications audience and is essentially just a rant. The only way to get the publications/websites to pay attention is to hit them in the wallet by contacting those who advertise on the website, and informing them that they are supporting an unethical publication that is driving readers and customers away.
>This is one of the most hilarious trainwrecks I've ever seen. It's like a neckbeard virgin trying to play games with one hand while taking the "red pill" with his cheeto stained left hand.
Those cunts are absosutly lovely. But come on now, /r/circlebroke is a SRS satellite sub, so no surprise here.
Source would be IA's second video where he says he got 2/5 wrong, but as it turns out only Kyle Pulver (guy with the blue-gold hair and glasses) was innocent and the other guy was in fact correctly named.
If you think about it though, Kyle Pulver was the only one who more or less had nothing to offer to literally who careerwise.
He's totally the prettiest of the 5 though.
SOMEBODY NEEDS TO MAKE A MR. T VS. JOURNALISTS
That sounds incredible sad to be true.
I'm not talking about programmers or developers. I'm talking specifically about the gaming journalists. They're all white men and white women, upper middle class, in their mid 20s and 30s, and all the women have anime hair colors.
It's like they've come off a conveyor belt, yet they're the ones yelling about how racist everyone else is.
Man. Circlebroke used to be cool. What the fuck happened?
Cause it's fun. Game blogging is gonna die harder over time anyway, lots of people predicted this with the way games get distributed, and the rise of streaming.
They don't really seem to realize we're twisting the knife as they're already falling. Even if they somehow threw us off them, they'll just die a slower death.
>Zee The Queen of vee was a suspect-though-already-considered-guilty-because-fuck-evidence-and-objectiveness-right-guys
You know what could have solved that before it even began? Milo not tweeting every fucking detail of an ongoing investigation to get attention.
$-10 club strikes again
This is probably incorrect info too bought from shitty third party info dump sites.
And you know what? IA won't go crying on Twitter because this happened.
I knwo you guys don't care, but Mr. Fart is in heavy danger.
I really don't like tactics like this. When did we ever care for more diversity as a principle? I've certainly never seen people anywhere on /v/ argue for it. If we now turn around and claim to support it just because it's convenient for us now, that's really hypocritical. Being hypocritical just isn't worth it, no matter how good argument you can make.
Though you can still ask someone to live up to their principles, even if you don't agree with them. Just try not to devolve into the exact same "well you're a white guy how can anything you say matter" shit they've been pulling on us all along.
