    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.

    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.

    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...

    I don't have anything to add to this list but I think David Letterman's cameo in Cabin Boy is Dan's cinematic equivalent.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X8istCTeQE

    Pandorum isn't high art in any way but it's a damn fun movie. I actually thought it executed on its premise and themes much better than Event Horizon.

    I swear, there's a thread every couple months about whether Jeff's jaded or not.In my opinion, no. He has idiosyncratic tastes, and I don't agree with half of them, but he's arrived at them after dec...

    Unexpected friendships are the best. Dan and Drew are the Gimli and Legolas of Giant Bomb, respectively.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic #Gamergate confirmed to be a mysogynistic attack by 4chan.. on the General Discussion board

    She's making a case for the FBI, so it's really pointless to discuss what is and what isn't substantiated. Like, the actual fucking feds are deciding that. That's how serious it got.

    Zoe's ex-boyfriend, the one who started all of this, can be seen coaching in at least one of those screengrabs. He could be in some serious legal trouble when this dies down.
