Yes, those are all from some common sound library.

The only thing that I did not like about this is the j-pop hair styles, but it's so toned down from 13. This is looking more and more like the art direction from 7 and 8 and that's good thing. I'm completely on board. Though I'll probably have to buy a PS4 for it. I'm kind of hoping for a PC release.

That MegaMan 2 level was pretty rad... MegaMan is pretty rad.

That was pretty out out there.

Also, between this and the Team Meat Voyeur video, I'm kind of wondering if there's a FMV game in the future.

A Voyeur for September was just a teaser for Super Meat Boy Forever. It's actually an anagram. So their probably not working on a FMV game.

Dan is just one step away from owning a beloved katana and becoming the anime he really wants to be. :luchadeer.

I'm just annoyed that there's a group of people attacking individuals when there's obviously a big nepotistic problem in the indie-development and press scene.

While you may not think it's the "biggest issue" Patrick, it's still what's being highlighted right now by everyone, and while there are assholes doing nefarious shit (which doesn't interest me and I'm sorry and annoyed that they do that), some of the things that have been brought up regarding the IGF NEEDS to be addressed as the evidence - at least from someone observing all this BS from the outside, like myself - is piling up.

I think a lot of the amped up hatred would settle down a bit if someone, ANYONE with some amount of respect and integrity in the industry actually investigated those claims instead of defaulting to the "misogyny!" part.

There's a huge crowd of us left behind with a ton of questions, but those with the answers are only responding to the hatred, not the valid points.

Annoyed? We're talking about people whose home addresses have been publicly plastered on Twitter, with death threats lovingly attached. It's not possible to be "sorry" about that. That angle of this discussion has taken over, and it's impossible to have a discussion about the other. That was my point. If you seriously think any concerns about nepotism or issues with the indie scene's clique-y nature are worth talking about as people are being driven from both the industry and their homes, I don't know what to tell you.

This is somewhat akin (not entirely, but some) to the "this isn't the right climate to be discussing gun control" argument that happens every time there's a major shooting in the news. The existence of nutcases coming out of the woodwork shouldn't be used as an excuse to write off discussion of a topic. I understand the concern about validating their behavior, but isn't it just as validating to say "If you do this, we'll shut down and you get the mic by default"?

My take on this whole thing... IF gamergate people ARE having an intelligent and thoughtful conversation, its not working because I don't know what they are trying to say exactly. Any of the "evidence piling up" must be hiding under the hate from "loud" people... I guess? And personally for me anything that manages to come to the surface that is not charged with hate comes off as very weak points or arguments... To me personally I find it very hard to wade through the chaos and negativity to see any real valid argument, and if there is one, it's a mystery to me... honestly. So at the end of the day I have to ask if its really worth it. And ultimately I go "Nah".

If you haven't already you should all read this article. It discusses the points of the non-harassing users of gamergate and why their arguments are muffled and disorganized. https://medium.com/@upstreamism/to-fair-minded-proponents-of-gamergate-7f3ce77301bb

I kind of hate that this is a premium video, because I want to share this with all of my friends that aren't members of this site. A lot of what you're saying is so important. Keep up the great work.

I concur. As a premium member I would be fine with this being available for everyone to watch. There are some important answers that a lot of people need to hear.
