I think it's great that this game is coming to PC. It had a fantastic combat system despite the mission design often being lackluster. However. OH MY GOD is the story god awful. If you pick this up now, I highly suggest just skipping all the cutscenes, or just turning your brain off and not thinking about all the obvious and asinine plot holes/forced character motivations, to save yourself from the mind-numbingly terrible plot of this game. It's one of the few games I stopped playing because of the story.
If you're looking for another viewpoint on the GG topic, check out the recent Spawn On Me podcast, They discuss it about halfway through.
If you really want to talk about the editorial direction of games journalism you really should come up with a new hashtag.
There was #gamingethic, but GG manipulators urged people that it was a "divide and conquer" technique to silence. It's bull shit the distance that these people are willing to go to make it seem like there actually something more to GG than just a hate group.
If you're wondering more about what GamerGate really is than browse through the Fuck NO Video Games account.
Here's an example of GG tactics:
@patrickklepek Please continue to report about this sort of stuff and what's going on with the GamerGate hate group. More people need to be aware and more news outlets, game devs, and personalities around video games need to discuss it.
Witch is already female so writing female witch just looks silly.
Actually, traditionally witch has been a gender-neutral term. In fact, plenty of men were burned at the stake for being witches. I'm not sure when the term began being applied almost exclusively to women, but I'm guessing Macbeth had a lot to do with it...
It's like most people assuming "duder" applies to men only. It's gender-neutral just like "witch."
I dunno man, Merriam-Webster states that witch is a gendered term: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/witch
"Witch" is non-gendered according to Wiccan folks and they would probably know since they call themselves "Witches." (Also Duder Witch will now be my fan-parody game of Bullet Witch.)
Regardless, gender is actually a big theme of the Fantastic Witch Collective. Apparently it will touch on this sort of discussion.
