Holy lord what has this thread turned into? Jeff hired the best people for the job. They just happen to be white dudes. It is not a big deal. If it were a woman or someone not white who were most qualified for the job, I'm sure they would have gotten it. People who make a big deal about these things are half of the damn problem.

Evidently you're not allowed to hire the best people for the job if those people are white males. That's insensitive and does not support diversity!

That's a pretty dumb misrepresentation of what people are unhappy about. No one is saying Dan and Jason aren't qualified and that they won't work well on the site. From what I've seen (heard, technically) of Dan on the Powerbombcast he seems like a cool guy, but you're treating 'diversity' and 'qualifications' as though they're two ends of the same axis which is supremely fucked up.

e: To be extra blatantly clear, no one is saying that Jeff is some racist, sexist monster for doing this. He's a great guy and I'm sure he made his choices based on who he thought would work best. I haven't even seen anyone angry about this, just kinda sad because this is the same sort of thing that happens all the time.

To be honest someone should say all that stuff about Jeff. Or did Patrick forgot about his crusade when its closer to home? Its stupid and untrue but that would be right thing to do after going after everyone else about everything that could be viewed as racist/sexist. Maybe thats just me.

I guess people in US don't care since they are bad at it.

Probably ps4 since most of the first party is not interesting and good games from Japan are pretty much dead this time around.

Totally not my thing but good for them.

I don't worry about it since I don't really care. As long as there is Vinny content on the net I'm ok.

Hell no

Asking for money for something like that would be a joke but in the Kickstarter era everything is possible.

Plus I have no interest in watching that stuff since I can speak Japanese and do stuff similar to raid couple times a year since I moved to China/ Korea.

From my experience looks like the award will go to 2014. I have found nothing exciting past 6 months and most big releases weren't that exciting. Plus its not looking too bright for the other half of the year. Maybe something unexpected will show up but as it is now its pretty boring.

Would love to listen to that one.

H.E.A.R.Wikipedia: H.E.A.R. is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing hearing loss, mainly from loud rock music. The acronym stands for Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers. It was founded in 1988 by rock musician Kathy Peck and physician Flash Gordon, M.D. after Kathy suffered tinnitus and hearing loss after playing with the band The Contractions. Kathy often carries earplugs in her purse and works to distribute them at rock concerts.
