Sadly, way too many video game related outlets are getting infected with the poison. I was late to finding out about the whole Gamer Gate thing and it's view on journalism, but.....holy shit did they call it or what? Well admittedly, I think it's worse than anyone could have foreseen, but still.

I've found it best to ignore all of it, and just stick to playing games and being pleasantly surprised when good stuff comes out. Aside from looking up release dates and such, I completely avoid any articles, coverage...all of it because it always, always, always seems to be laced with an agenda, most commonly one of the SJW persuasion.

That is exactly what I do now. Maybe it's just from getting older but I look at all these limp wristed faggots and trannies that are game reviewers and have to ask myself why the fuck do I care about their opinions at all? The answer is, I don't. I don't want their input on anything. I wouldn't even sit at a bar with them and have a beer.

Instead, I can just watch a few YouTube videos of a game and draw my own conclusion from it. I don't need something pudgy queer with thick black rimmed glasses commending the game because it has a strong female character.

Have you noticed many companies (like Twitter), as they start to lose the marketshare they had or thought they had, start to cater to these extremely motivated fringe groups? Probably not a coincidence.

And video game "journalists" have been becoming less and less relevant since streaming video became feasible. So they start in with the POZ shit.

I've never given Giant Bomb a chance, the site or anything connected to it. And now, all these years later, the site is POZ'd with trannies and SJW poison.

It's a little strange to have entirely missed the establishment, rise, and fall of something that was important to someone else. But Gerstmann has always come across like a narcissistic fatass to me. And now he's the best part of the site?

I've long enjoyed Jeff and Vinny personally. The others have always ranged from fine to intolerable. The problem is GB East is almost exclusively intolerable, and GB West panders to gaffots.

Ever since Ryan Davis died, Giant Bomb has steadily lost its relevance. Their new hires are boring, Vinny moved to New York and got lost in the abyss, and Jeff is on autopilot.

I was really looking forward to this week's podcast. Hilarious that they totally ignored it. Will be funny to see what GBeast says, if anything.

Just like Klepick he said he's not gonna drop the story but dropped it soon after people learned the truth.

Technically, he dropped it before everyone knew the truth. I'm pretty sure that "won't stop reporting on it" tweet was his last statement on the topic, and a week later people found out she was a whore. Since: absolute silence.

What can I say... "Ethics in games journalism."

You full well knew coming into it you'd never hear them discussing the prostitute thing. Especially after Jason's pouting last week about how she's been treated. You'd think he was her husband instead of that cuck the way he was lamenting her getting fired. I wonder if he ever paid her for sex. On a side note. It's pretty easy to get into a drinking game involving Brad. Drink whenever he:

Is sick and has the sniffles. Has to take a break so he can use the bathroom. Is wrong about something he's so sure he's right about. Uses an uncommon word he found in the deepest darkest depths of a thesaurus like it's common verbiage.

God I hate Brad.

Brad has been awful since forever, but I'm still hanging in for Jeff, and very rarely Vinny. I don't even listen to the Beastcast. Jeff and Vinny were literally the 2 best in the industry not that long ago.

I thought for sure they would bring up Rapp's hooking when Brad mispronounced hookah like "hook-ah"

You should check out gameinformer's youtube content, IMO they are the polar opposite of GB at this point. YOu will actually see happy grown ass men talking and playing games in a non-controlled environment. I found out about GB when Dan Ryckert from GI moved over to work with GB, and then i saw just how DEAD AND BORING all these guys look in all their content....WTF? i know someone that was a key member died and all but you would think that would have unified the crew into becoming something better...and not this sad sack of shit....maybe im too used to the happy go luckyness found at GI's replays and superreplays (gameinformers lets plays)

I wouldn't call the Giant Bombcast SJW. Certainly not historically. It took a turn for the worse when Klepek joined, but he was only one voice. He's gone. It's mostly neutral now, even if a couple of them lean SJW. The one person I came to giantbomb for is still there, and is still pretty level headed.

They shit all over nintendo because of the lies she said about the reason for being fired. Blamed harrassment and gamergate.

Turns out she is a literal prostitute who promotes lenience on child pornography and pedophiles being prosecuted.

Week 1 - Happy to roll with: Hate nintendos treatment of Rapp, could have helped her, gamergate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Week 2 - Can't admit that: being a pedo advocate, a prostitute and a liar is why she was fired and we were mislead by a literal whore and Nintendo were totally justified with firing that bitch.
