This never hit me more then when I found out that the NoPat app I had heard about last year was still alive and well. If you don't know, NoPat is an app extension that censors out Patrick's content. It just recently received a 4 star review. It would have gotten a 5 but apparently Patrick's Alien: IsolationReview snuck through. I couldn't believe that these members of our community thought this was ok. You are allowed to have whatever feelings you want about Patrick, horror, hell even Aliens. But creating something like that even if you're allowed to is wrong.
I don't want to get into this argument over Patrick or anything but, why is this wrong? Some people do just not enjoy his content and would never give it the time of day. So having an app that just hides that stuff just makes it disappear. It's not like they are stealing from him in any way. They wouldn't be looking at it otherwise. Are you saying that if I go to this website I NEED to read/watch every bit of content Patrick puts out? In online forums/chats there are ignore functions. How is this any different?
With this GamerGate stuff the best thing you can do is ignore it. That's the best thing you can do with anything you disagree with. There's a reason people say, "Not to feed the trolls". It's because that works. You don't need a public denunciation from the Giant Bomb crew.
This whole post just screams, "They need to be told what to think". They're grown men, they can think/do what they want. It's not like any of them are going to come out and say, "You know what, I think threatening people is good. We should kill all women." Obviously they're against that. Stop trying to pull people into your personal vendetta.
It's kind of amazing to me how cut and dry this game is. You can tell that there has been a lot of time, effort and money put into it but it all just seems so damned lifeless. It just seems to be following a line of, "Yup. This is a shooter." and seems afraid to divert from it. I wasn't super excited for Destiny in any way, especially after playing the beta but it's just disappointing.
I'm completely biased. I've been making a living off of YouTube for the past year. I really enjoy it. I love the fact that I can provide free videos to everyone due to ads. Ads make all this awesome free stuff possible. A lot of people like to say that using adblock is piracy and stealing food from the creators mouth. I personally don't know. I would still make YouTube videos if I wasn't getting paid for it, but when I lost my job it kept a roof over my family's head.
When people really bitch about having to watch a 30 second ad for a video that can sometimes be an hour long, that helps me out. It just makes me kind of annoyed. People love using the services but will bitch when places like Youtube looks at other ways to make a profit. Like subscriber fees. That sounds fucking awful to me. I like doing videos because it doesn't cost the viewer anything at all except a few minutes of their day to watch an ad or two.
My playtime took just over an hour while playing Co-Op. I think it was actually a really good DLC. It's not, "MUST PLAY!" or anything but if you have some microsoft points and don't know what to play. I highly suggest it.
As the game went on I got progressively more and more uninterested. I mean, everything felt fine and everything. All the narrative was just boring as all hell. I felt like a powerful being like Death should be doing something more than just fetch quests.
