Great article. I love that companies (and not just game companies) are becoming more transparent about the process that creates their products. I would absolutely be more willing to support something knowing the amount of money and effort that goes into it.
I have bought, and will continue buying, every "extra" that he includes with this game. I want to support this game because it's absolutely fantastic. The new 8-player mode he added (also for free) is amazing! Played with 7 players the other night and it was crazy!
Great article, Patrick. I agree that another dissertation on sexism in games/marketing would have been tired. Reading a variety of opinions from various women in the industry has been enlightening. However, reading so many of these comments that defend the statue or just straight hate on you for doing your job is making me sick. I never thought the Giantbomb community could hit such a low point, but I see the same bile spit on videos an articles almost every day now. It's very sad. Keep on doing what you do, Pat! There are those of us that appreciate your honesty and guts in bringing light to the dark corners of the industry.

What is the exact link to the page you are having a problem with? Issue happens on any and all videos when using the HTML 5 player
Player Settings: HTML 5, HD
So I recently switched to using the HTML 5 player since it's the only player that displays videos in true HD when in full screen (the other players just expand the size, causing bad interlacing/jaggies). It worked fine for a while, but now the issue below happens every few minutes. I'm pretty sure the issue I'm having relates to my recent update to Windows 8, but who knows?
ISSUE: I can start watching videos fine with the HTML 5 player, but after a few minutes the video will stop playing and stop loading. When I hit play to restart the video, it will jump back to the beginning of the video. I can then click on the timeline to go back to where I was, but it seems like the same issue happens more frequently after this unless I refresh the video page. In fact, it eventually get's to the point where clicking somewhere in the timeline will jump right back to the beginning almost instantly. The issue happens in any size (small, big, and full screen).
I've tried the usual stuff like re-installing Chrome or disabling my ad blocker, but the issue persists. Anyone else seeing this or know of a workaround?
I would love to be a fly on the wall in these marketing meetings. There are so many terrible campaigns out there, and it really makes me wonder considering these companies are supposed to be aware of the world around them in order to advertise to it.
