1. Good.
2. Asshat is less believable than Filip Miucin when he said he never heard of GG
Eh. Who knows. You’re probably right but honestly until I started posted here more reguarly GamerGate was just some horrible lynch mob in 2014 to me, I wasn’t familiar with most of the watch words people around here seem to be very well versed in.

I think some people who are deep in the social media bubble don’t realise how little attention the average gamer or person pays to that stuff or even the reaction from other side. And honestly most of the time that’s way more healthy for the individual.

From the Kotaku article:
[Halliday] also says he wasn’t aware of Gamergate, which is a puzzling claim considering he has written two editorials in 2015 and 2016, the first of which criticized frequent Gamergate targets Anita Sarkeesian and Jonathan McIntosh, makers of the “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games” YouTube series and the second of which nailed the Gamergate talking points: “The video game media has been whipping itself on the back of late,” he wrote. “If it’s not lying to their users or giving misinformation, it’s declaring gamers ‘dead’ while lambasting certain genders and races. Should we really be so shocked that this is the next step? The sad fact is, instead of using their platforms and voice to expose non-violent games, they chose to moan and preach.” Later, he took a swing at the gaming site Polygon saying of their writers: “Cries of sexism, racism and other social issues has left their name dented a bruised.”

Both editorials have since been deleted.

He wasn't the average gamer; he was the social media manager for GOG. The Eurogamer article posted earlier paints a clear picture on what kind of person he is.

If you are hired as a community manager responsible for the social media output of a company and monitoring it's forums it's kinda your job to know those things tho

I’m in fucking awe of what happened to me just now in Hitman 2

the other night when I stayed up late playing, I died because I hesitated during a mission story conversation due to a guard, and then panicked after, and so when I died I called it a night

loaded just now mid-conversation, and without even thinking about what I was going to do...


I cannot fucking believe that just happened and actually worked?? game good

what are any of the title choices referencing
never heard of any of them
New Personal Best is from Alex's 24 hour drum stream.

White Castle Crystals are what Dan thought the onions on a White Castle burger were.

Dreamed and Directed By is from The Quiet Man credits

How To End a Toxic Friendship is from the Jan/Rorie/Ben portion of the West Extra Life stream.

Can't quite remember where The Footlong Experience comes from, I think I remember it being in the context of a hot dog discussion.
