I still think the indiegogo is super weird and I'm kind of against it. I feel that if something bad happens, you should have to deal with it like the rest of us do.
Nevertheless, the generosity is an example of good internet and I'll probably pitch in a couple bucks.
I think it's okay for you to be against it, but that's a really weird reason. If I had my shit stolen and a very rich friend wanted to help me with money I would take it. This community is Dan's rich friend, nothing wrong with accepting help from someone willing to give it.
@aleperez75: That's the complete opposite, actually! Microsoft is only doing everything they can to improve Xbox One because of how most people right now prefer the PS4 and express that they do, like Brad. That's what happened last generation too! Sony started really full of themselves thinking the PS3 had already won, and when most people preferred the Xbox 360, they worked so so hard to improve the PS3.
Also, being objective is the same as being impartial, and we're here EXACTLY because they aren't.
I think because it's a close-knit group (with a lot of good people in it), anyone being sleazy would not be very successful.
I also think a journalist should disclose if a relationship exists between him/her and the developer of the game he/she is covering. It's already proven that that was not the case for the Kotaku/RPS writer, and all we have left is this fucking depressing witch hunt.
