Also, since the world might be ending, can I get out of the grays?

“I have Parkinson’s Disease and Asthma. Plus I’m 56 years old. So don’t lecture me on risk.”

So the guy making all the money is willing to literally die to make more, therefore everyone else making minimum wage should be willing to die too (and/or potentially kill others) in order to help him. What an unconscionable Read more

I ran a leftist group on Facebook for years that, among other things, would try to mobilize to respond to right wing hate mobs coming for this or that thing, and it’s absolutely WILD how many people they can get to sign on to whatever cause in just a few minutes with a single post in a Facebook group or one of their Read more

I think by law now, the goose is mayor of that town.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen the game in action. I actually pre-ordered it based off this video. I like competitive gaming, but hate pressure and how seriously people can take it, and this seems like one of the most chill competitive games I’ve ever seen. At least no one is going to get on me about my k/d Read more

Every time I see this media image for the game, I get confused for a second and think Destiny’s new aesthetic is tacticool armor.

This whole situation is just so tragic. I hope everyone involved can find some peace. As an abuse victim myself and a two time suicide survivor, I know how hard that can be, but we’ve got to hope for peace. It’s all we can do.

I didn’t get to see much news yesterday, but on Sunday none of the networks had anyone and they didn’t push back when people made shit up. Glad to hear they rectified that by Monday.

Actually, ironically, Kotaku is one of the better journalistic outlets I’ve seen in terms of doing what I’m talking about. When they do interviews as part of covering a story, they seem to be significantly more aggressive and willing to immediately confront the people that they’re talking to over false statements made Read more

The article is nice, but what I’m really asking for is for journalists to bring this stuff up at the time the public person makes the claim (obviously not Kotaku, but the outlets that happen to be directly present when falsehoods are thrown out live by people in positions of power). To directly challenge them, face to Read more

I mean, I get that, and can even sort of respect it with regard to self-preservation. No one should have to lose a livelihood over calling out lies when they’re said to their face. But on the other hand, when it allows people with the capacity to make the biggest institutional changes that are probably necessary to Read more

Why would you imply that I can’t understand that it might look strange to people who don’t play video games? What did I say that gave you that idea? I was asking why journalists who have access to the statistics above and presumably a vested interest in reporting facts and keeping public figure honest would refrain Read more

It would also be really cool if I could be taken out of the greys finally. So that I could actually participate in the discussion.

I don’t understand why journalists aren’t choosing to be more confrontational when they talk to Trump or to the Lt. Gov of Texas or whoever who is making completely baseless claims about video games and their connections to violence and particularly the violence in El Paso on Saturday. When these people in power say Read more

Pretty sure I mentioned that it’s edited together from thousands of hours of footage. I’m intimately familiar with how reality shows are made and how storylines are written in the editing room. But I’m also intimately aware of the small but important to escalating drama ways that moods and atmospheres change when Read more

I’m not a reality show guy, but I am a trained writer, so I know drama and using whatever is available—be it words or pictures or thousands of hours of people drinking and hanging out in pools—to create compelling stories.

But I do know that that BIP is basically the Real World/Road Rules Challenge of the Read more

They’ll consider it, because they’re basically going to be legally obligated to. They’ll even try to implement some of the rules. But they won’t be stringently enforced. Even before they see their footage and decide it’s less “exciting” than it used to be. Because the show is a male power fantasy. One guy with I Read more

I know you’re responding to a lot of people’s comments on here, so it’s completely understandable, but I think you may be getting me mixed up with other people. I also view the killer as the culprit. I simply view the gun as a tool that allowed him to do what he did with the efficiency he had. Which is why I see Read more
