    I LOVE that Film Crit Hulk piece but I just can't read it with the ALL CAPS HULK SPEAK thing. If you are like me, google for 'the dehulkifier' to read like a normal article.

    FWIW, I read your argument @originalyellow and find it completely unconvincing. I'll even go so far as to suggest some self-reflection is warranted if you are truly interested in ethical gaming journa...

    Just in the last day or so it seems gamergate has set their sites on Giant Bomb as 'corrupt' because they post articles like this or something and it's making me a bit ill. I don't post much on Giant...

    It's a blog where a bunch of different writers post their thoughts. What do you want them to do? Would it even be a problem if every single blot post was about feminism from now on? What's the win con...

    The approach is to go advertiser by advertiser, and mention any sites that overlap with the current GG black list. With Nvidia it was RPS and EuroGamer. When the move to the next advertiser they wil...

    So it's not that this game is too easy or too hard, it's that the difficulty is really weird. For one, the Nemesis system has a ton of RNG. This is generally awesome because it's constantly making for...
