I don't know what's more retarded: this, or the whole "rename the master bedroom" thing from a few years ago (that's apparently coming back now).

They won't do it. There was an argument several years back that AAA games should be $100, but they aren't because microtransactions were making up the difference, thereby justifying them.

Plus, this is EA we're talking about. They're gonna squeeze for as much money as they can.

It's funny, because they bought the hoax before the symbol started seeing wide usage, then people started using it to mock the left, which then led the left to double down on the "IT'S WHITE SUPREMACYYYYYYYYY" nonsense.

My theory is that they actually know how it happened, but don't want to admit they were wrong.

I mean, his wife already said he was an abusive, manipulative motherfucker masquerading as a woke feminist, so this shouldn't be a surprise.

Oh god no. I watched a playthrough, if only to see this "context" that everyone said I needed before judging the shit quality of the story. Turns out it was much worse than I initially assumed.

Gotta love how this fuckstick wanted us banned suddenly so we'd have no place to reorganize ourselves.

Implying that the word wouldn't have gotten out in some way if we didn't have any backup plans established... for the last five years.

Holy shit, that's a name I haven't seen in a long time.

Don't worry, we're still doing it for free. :^)

I was already partial to anti-SJWism prior to Gamergate. Hell, modding TumblrInAction is what got me the job running KiA for its first year. So in regard to "redpilling," no, I was already there, and I had been studying up on the arguments of SJWs for some time already. If anything, Gamergate introduced me to a new set of ideologies that I could research, thereby affirming my own worldviews regarding progressivism.

I considered myself a moderate or a centrist prior to and during Gamergate, and I still like to say that now, though I've found myself leaning right more often than not, if only because the left wing has proven to be utterly incapable of reasonable debate. Granted, the right also appears mostly unwilling to move on their positions, but at least they will entertain opposing views, provided that they have a modicum of a defense to them beyond an appeal to emotion.

If anything changed in me, it was the willingness to educate myself and engage with ideological opposites in order to understand their views (however insane the logic behind them might be) and in turn, challenge myself to defend my own views. So far, things have pretty much held strong. Except maybe, in trying to learn how to speak SocJus, I fried a few brain cells.

Mostly Animal Crossing, because I'm an addict.

Also trying to play through The Last of Us again, to get the taste of The Last of Us Part II out of my mouth, but it's... it's not as good of a game as I remember. I find myself longing for Uncharted.

Given that they closed up shop, I guess it's a matter of time.
