    Thanks for the podcast guys, it's been emotional.Looking forward to whatever you come up with next, though I'm hoping for Alt+FIFA (Alt+EPL?). As long as the magic Drew + Danny formula is maintained,...

  • Afroofdoom posted a message in the forum topic Why I Think Giant Bomb Should Denounce #GamerGate?. on the General Discussion board

    Look, when even the shit-rag that is the Daily Mail is scooping you on calling Gamergate out, maybe that says something?The idea of neutral parties, or some morally superior middle ground is ridiculou...

  • Afroofdoom posted a message in the forum topic Why I Think Giant Bomb Should Denounce #GamerGate?. on the General Discussion board

    I absolutely agree with the OP, the GB staff should speak up unequivocally in opposition to the ongoing harassment campaign that is GamerGate. Several of them have done so on Twitter, or given passing...

  • Afroofdoom posted a message on the post Nintendo Promises Future Tomodachi Games Will Be More "Inclusive".

    The original response from Nintendo was the worst combination of mealy-mouthed, tone deaf and non-committal I have ever seen from professional PR. It was incredible in it's badness.If today's apology ...
