Hey all,

Just wanted to say I've read through and very much appreciate this thread. When I blurted all that stuff out yesterday I honestly didn't think anyone would even take much note of it, but it's incredibly sweet of all of you to say such nice things about me and share what you've shared about your own personal struggles. Y'all are the fuckin' best, and as much as I like to moan about this, that, or whatever, I thank my lucky stars this community is so supportive.

You're rad as fuck. That is all that I need to say.

I hope Revan is not the villain, because then Revan will officially be the kitchen sink of the Star Wars universe.

"What is missing here in this story?"

"I know! Revan! Let's put Revan in it."

Not Revan but looks similar to him in his armour.

Yeah, hope it isn't him. Because although he is one of the greatest heroes and villains in the EU, there are others worth visiting. Bane, Nihilus, Kreia, Jacen Solo, Exar Kun...

I thought Revan was like 4000 years before the events of the movies?

But due to reasons (like his popularity) he is kinda immortal.

His name is Grave Robber. They wouldn't bring back an obscure character like him. They killed all of that lore anyway. Kotor isn't canon.

I feel like these situations really justify the 30 dollars for a wired 360 pad.

Switching to controller pretty much changed this game for me.

I've realized since making this thread too that it can't switch between KB/M and controller. You need to quit the game and relaunch it. That's something $5 indie games made by 1 guy has already gotten past, how is it in a game like this?

FYI: That lightsaber design has been in Star Wars canon for a decade.

@thatpinguino: nothing small about Giant Bomb.

I've had a great deal to say in this subject. I've condemned harassment since Day 1, saw some crazy shit go down on Reddit when I posted something on Twitlonger appealing for calm (33,000 comments all deleted), got shouted at by various indie devs for suggesting that Ms Quinns alleged DMCA takedown was not cool (DMCAs have threatened my livelihood several times, it's a sore spot) and then over the course of 3 months have apparently been called every name in the book from a misogynist with a "longstanding axe to grind with minorities" to literally "Hitler", without a hint of irony. In the meantime, I've been trying to discuss issues with games media and how we can all do things better for our viewers, which included interviewing Stephen Totilo from Kotaku to give him a neutral forum on which to answer allegations leveled at his staff and site and Rhianna Pratchett on the subject of how to write diverse characters and improve gender representation in games narrative. Recently I worked with Wolfire Games to produce an open letter again calling for empathy and understanding while providing practical suggestions to reduce harassment on social media.

Doing all of this has resulted in death-threats and harassment aimed at myself, my colleagues, my sponsors and my family. I'd honestly be more bothered by it if I wasn't focused on chemotherapy right now. After playing chicken with cancer, the problems of the professional umbrage-taker on Twitter seem somewhat petty.

So long story short. I support efforts to improve transparency in games media. I support efforts to improve diversity in games writing because let's face it a lot of it sucks and I'm bored of muscley white-dudes with the personality of a sack of bricks. I don't support this whole "LETS DRIVE SJW OUT OF GAMING" because everyone's entitled to their opinion and it would be boring if everybody wrote about exactly the same stuff. I don't support harassment and bullying of any kind and I believe plenty of it has gone on and it's not in any way contained to one "side" of the discussion. That's about it really.

You never actually say if you support the actual GG movement or not. You give answers like a politician avoiding a simple answer. GG has virtually nothing to do with game media and any times they've brought stuff up its been instantly debunked or a flat out lie. It's about hating women in gaming. Where's the GG movement when Ubisoft have post-launch embargos or Actvision throw out DMCA copyright violations for anyone posting CoD:AW bugs on youtube? They're just sitting there calling some woman a cunt for condemming their hate campaign.

I've highlighted the part you missed which answers your question for you.

No it doesn't. He said harassment on both sides. Not condemning GamerGate. He still acts like GG is about ethics in video games when it hasn't been since day 1.

Also: "On a broadcast with Erik Kane of Frobes, Bain(Totalbiscuit) stated that he supports Gamergate as a consumer movement"
