  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Why Is Diversity Important To You?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm a straight, white, cisgendered dude, so increased diversity doesn't benefit me in any single way. But it shouldn't, because I've been catered to all my life. When I see more diverse material, I s...

    I, for one, was super-impressed when Dan referenced John Brown while talking about Insane Clown Posse's ideology. Touche, sir.

    Brad is rocking the grey in his beard and he looks super grizzled.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Do you guys like the darkness Alex brings to GB?. on the General Discussion board

    Alex is my favourite duder, and as someone who struggles with depression his darker/self-deprecating content really resonates with me. Plus he sounds kind of like Paul Giamatti, so that's extra cool....

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Original or Alternate Controls for First-Timers?. on the Resident Evil board

    It would be hypocritical of me to defend the old tank controls when I'm criticizing the early Metal Gear Solid ones in another thread, so I'll just say that I'm so used to the older style--I've been ...

    I loved the bow in The Last of Us, especially how it factored in the arc and tension.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Patrick content/moments?. on the Patrick Klepek board

    His silent, shell-shocked reaction to that Kraken game for the Rift was faaaaantastic.As well, any time he let Pixel make an appearance. What a silly pup.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Could Jeff be a comedian?. on the General Discussion board

    I would love, love, love it if he wrote a comedic collection of anecdotes called Tales from the Compound about his quasi-shady exploits living with a bunch of other people last decade, what with the ...

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Let's Show Some Friendly Support for Alex. on the Off-Topic board

    Alex has become my favourite member of the crew in the last year. His criticism is always on point, and he always surprises me with one bit of knowledge or another. I can't understate how funny he is...

    Jeff stated earlier this year that GB is doing really well financially. I wouldn't be surprised if they could support another staff member@mechakirby said:Honestly the way chat reacts when Mary Kish ...

    Please please please I hope Cara applies and gets this. She has fantastic insight on a wide variety of facets of gaming culture and gets along so well with the crew. She'd be a perfect fit.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Shocktober: Week Three (And Four?). on the General Discussion board

    It's too bad that Exists is such a disappointment, because Sanchez's earlier movie, Lovely Molly, is hands down one of the best horror movies I've ever seen, a worthy successor to Blair Witch, and am...

    @demoskinos: No. Only GamerGate has been consistently guilty of this. Don't buy into their false equivocation.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Do you think the crew are scared of GamerGate. on the General Discussion board

    This isn't drama. Peoples lives are being threatened, their bodies targeted for rape. A few people have quit their careers rather than put up with this awful abuse. Zoe and Anita are working with the...

    Yes, I do. This is the industry they report on, whose cultural issues they examine. This is absolutely something they should be writing about.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Do you think the crew are scared of GamerGate. on the General Discussion board

    Going on two months now. Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian are still putting up with this shit, still working with the FBI to prosecute their abusers. Brianna Wu and her husband had to flee their home. A...

    I've messaged the guys regarding the Escapist piece and Brianna Wu's doxxing. I've appreciated Patrick and Alex's individual commentary, but that gives detractors the chance to dismiss their opinions...
