Legend of Zelda Boss has Weakness Not Found for 14 Years submitted by CM30 to gaming

CM30 0 points 50 points (+50|-0) ago

In other words, there's a boss in the second dungeon of the Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker called Kalle Demos. And someone has just now discovered you can one shot kill it by pouring Forest Water on it.

But the most interesting thing?

This was seemingly not discovered in the 14 years since the game launched on the Gamecube. And its present in both that version and the Wii U one...

European Union Releases Taxlandia Propaganda Game, Accidentally Destroys Own Philosophy submitted by CM30 to gaming

CM30 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago

Or in other words... if you're releasing a game to promote more positive attitudes about taxes and to 'teach' how they work, you really shouldn't be saying the best way to run a country is to raise taxes than sit on your backside for eight years, ignoring public services and natural disasters along the way.

This Taxlandia game is basically Nigel Farage's dream Brexit ad, a full year too late.

POLYBIUS - The Video Game That Doesn't Exist submitted by ooli to gaming

CM30 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago

Have to say, this is possibly the best example of 'gaming journalism' I've seen in my life. Forget the boring social media posts and controversy baiting, Stuart Brown really goes deep into the subject here including interviews with people involved, searches of Usenet and magazine databases and hardcore research into when the game was actually first mentioned online and which sites and publications spread the word about it.

If sites like Kotaku and Polygon did this sort of journalism, they'd actually be great gaming sites. This is what gaming journalism should be. Not yet another article or video about 'representation' in video games or how 'gamers are dead'.

The Kunkel Awards are Back for a Second Year! submitted by CM30 to GamerGate

CM30 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Yeah, I know. A lot of GamerGate supporters (and a lot of GamerGate haters) didn't like them much. But the SPJ is bringing them back, so I'll give them my support this time around too. Maybe I can actually get them some attention in the mainstream press or something, since I'm working with others to try and encourage/reward actual good gaming journalism.

So yeah, thoughts?

Clinton Lost The Election Because She Was the Medias Pet submitted by CM30 to politics

CM30 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Or in other words, because she was clearly being pushed by elites despite the mainstream voter not giving a toss about her, so they decided to stick it to the man by voting for the other guy.

Heck, she fits all the creator's pet traits on TV Tropes:

  • Hated by fans (no one really cared for her much, her entire platform was 'not Trump')
  • Loved (or worshipped) by the writers (way more media outlets and celebrities backed her than the public)
  • Put into big scenes for no reason (maybe?)
  • Talked up by the other characters (Barack Obama especially, but also certain celebrities and popular figures).

Man buys 1000 copies of local newspaper following DWI arrest (Streisand Effect in action) submitted by CM30 to Journalism

CM30 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Not related to press corruption or bias, but hilarious none the less. This guy apparently didn't want his DWI report to be common knowledge, so he tried to hide it by buying up every copy of the paper he could find.

Unfortunately, not only did said paper have a readerbase of about 12,000 people per issue (so he managed to remove just about 9-10% of the papers distributed), but the story ended up making the national news, turning his one crime into something half the country possibly now knows about it.

In other words... you can't censor information by trying to get it taken down, nor buying every publication printing it.
