These people have nothing in common except their prior irrelevance, obscurity, and a dogged hatred of anything resembling progressive values. But to even call the clown kings of GamerGate “conservatives” is to give them more credit than they’re due; this isn’t political, it’s personal and deeply cynical.
Atop a blob of angry, naive, and alienated youths is this handful of self-promoters who recognize an opportunity to self-promote. The kids of GamerGate think they’ve found heroes and allies, a group of adults who will finally include and respect them. But they’re being made fools of all over again.
“So what is GamerGate “really” about? I think this is the kinda question a philosopher of language would tear apart and scatter the remnants of to the wind, because it lacks any real referent. You guys refuse to appoint a leader or write up a platform or really do any of the things real-life, adult “movements” do. I’d argue that there isn’t really any such thing as GamerGate, because any given manifestation of it can be torn down as, again, No True GamerGate by anyone who disagrees with it. And who gets to decide what is and isn’t True GamerGate? You can’t say you want a decentralized, anonymous movement and then disown the ugly parts that inevitably pop up. Either everything is in, or everything is out.”—jsingal dissects the heart of GamerGate in /r/KotakuInAction

“I think the only future for journalism is reader revenue. Without it, you are in danger of becoming a public relations or advertising company disguised as journalism, like Buzzfeed and even The Guardian. Buzzfeed is really an ad agency with some journalistic window dressing. They’re not the future of journalism; they’re the marginalization of it. And The New York Times, alas, is following suit with merry abandon.”—The 60-second interview: Andrew Sullivan, founding editor, The Dish | Capital New York
Destiny, in its current form, is a sad farce of a game. It should not have shipped like this.
After working to level 24 and scraping together everything I can for 25, I think I’m done. Many game mechanics are a total mess. The game doesn’t even teach you how to play or about many core elements like what the hell engrams are or who decrypts them. Multiple missions are literally repeats of another. There is no story, it’s just a cobbled bunch of scifi babbling hung on Dinklage’s squandered voice talent. There’s a lot of evidence that a *ton* of content and likely story got ripped out at the last minute, but no good explanation for why.
Destiny has tremendous potential, and I’m going to keep the door open for when and if Bungie tries again to deliver. I still really want to play Destiny, but this isn’t it. – Read on Path.
