dear zoe quinn,
this isn’t industry-related, or if it is, it’s marketing advice from some fucker who got laid off because she’s too sick to function. I don’t care about gaming, game dev, or games journalism, and my only political opinion on what has happened to you recently…
Oh man. Can’t a guy even blog about his ex without making the internet explode anymore? As TotalBiscuit so wonderfully put it “What the Hell Just Happened?” What’s this about?
- Is it about nepotism within the indie dev scene?
- Yeah kind of. And we’ll get to that.
- Is it about nepotism…
A girl more famous for controversy than her career cheats on her boyfriend and instead of the boyfriend dumping her and realizing he’s better off he childishly tries to embarrass her and ruin her career. What you have are two immature people being stupid. This isn’t new, but the way the internet deals with it is. 10 years ago pretty much no one would have cared about any of this and the extremes would have been “That stupid pussy needs to move on and forget about her” or “That cheating bitch just got burnt” then everyone would immediately forget about it because it is so ridiculously unimportant. Now though, because the extremists on every side of every issue like to push and pull so much, it turns into these crazy stupid controversies that solve NOTHING and only make people more upset. There is no rationality to extremism and one sides extremism spawns the opposite sides extremism. Everyone that is arguing this on each side should realize that the way they are handling this isn’t solving anything but only creating more problems. Honestly though, I think the people yelling the loudest don’t want change because they have defined their life with conflict. If the conflict were to magically go away all the sudden these people would panic because they would become more irrelevant than they already are. Truth is though, these weekly controversies are way more entertaining than most of what’s on TV.
Best shot ever… My ears are still ringing…
It was around 130-150 feet away.
Io fails the corgi IQ test
In appreciation of (and a big welcome to) all the new followers of Io the Corgi, today I’ll be reblogging a few Io classics.
Io makes an enormous effort. WE LOVE YOU IO!
Great! I’m mega excited to have anything I stream get copyright claimed and sit in limbo while I refute the account strike in the interim on waiting for a previous counterclaim to finish and be told I have no permission to stream even if Shigeru Miyamoto sent me a personal email telling me I could stream Mario Kart
i hate xbox live
I have always felt like it was some kind of gross marketing compartmentalization (“Ohhh I didn’t know you were a GAMER!!!!”) and it has never sat right with me at all. I try to never use it non-facetiously.
I feel the same way about being a “nerd” or a “geek.” Don’t be any of those things. Be who you fucking are already
