I’ll type that out later but just… think about that for a while.
anita sarkeesian refused to do a talk at usu; she received a “massacre” threat, and the security refused to do patdowns because usu is in an “open carry” state [google news feed] [tweet (more on her acct)]
twitter is now trending in the usa with the tag “#stopgamergate2014"
that is all
in february I started artemis, a guild for women. long story short, taken badly.
a day or two later a guy recognized my nick and called me out. yeah, that’s EXACTLY what I want to deal with. changed it.
then I got chosen for ehug’s pub-cast where kotlguy and someone else casted a pub I played
I realized how dangerous it was to be recognized
I changed my not only my steam nickname, but MY “GENDER,” for my sake and theirs
you know who should be talking gender?
sure as hell NOT totalbiscuit
and SURE AS HELL NOT REDDITORS
Jesus FUCKING CHRIST every FUCKING time there’s some gender politics bullshit on reddit it’s like 95% guys who think they know what’s right and wrong for our goddamn sakes
yeah, how about we talk about the designs of these women characters
INSTEAD OF THE WAY THAT WOMEN ARE SPECIFICALLY TREATED IN THE REALM OF GAMING
AND HOW GUYS ALWAYS, ALWAYS TALK OVER WOMEN IN ALL OF THESE CONVERSATIONS
what’s great about tsw is that yeah it’s a dark, serious, mature game, it has some spooky shit and it’s a legitimately well-mad game with good stories

Two days until the Kickstarter for The Black Watchmen ends.
Which means it’s your last chance to join what’s going to be one of the most ridiculously expansive ARGs before all the prices jump up.
Apparently it’s a $25 minimum pledge for access to the game for one year, but you’ll probably get access to a few pre-game things if you pledge anything.
Hope you’ll consider it.
Pro-Quinn peeps are quick defend Quinn. She’s not a saint. She’s a terrible, selfish person.
But this didn’t start with anything that put her as “evil” on the moral compass.They ratted her out for stupid things that have nothing to do with what she’s legitimately done wrong. And it was, in fact, a conspiracy, as Quinn proved.
You can hate Quinn, but hate what the community is doing.
This highlights a lot of wrongdoing in “gaming journalism” and its community.
Between Fiction and Reality lies the exhilarating Fear of the Unknown… (ARG / Transmedia)
Thanks to a player contributing enough for a user-unique mission, the game is now funded! Woo!
This is really great because the staff so far has been so communicative and is obviously so passionate about this project. They even gave us a pre-game operation that led up to a post-op discussion of the ARG elements of the game.
Basically, everyone’s really excited to see this go through and become a reality.
Join in — go throw in some money and get in on the game!
friendly reminder that valve released modding tools for dota 2 and of course someone is trying to recreate league of legends in the source engine
