I think both sides are wrong, when you are ramming your opinions down throats and demanding that people take sides it just turns me off completely.
I do also think that this has got massive because of a undercurrent of non games coverage across a lot of sites ( which I'm ok with at the moment ). Personally it has made me think about people in different situations which is cool but it wasn't what I came to these sites for in the first place.
I backed this game , and have booted it up a few times it looks cool.
I did manage to get to the end of the world (the map stopped) so it might be a idea to wait for the full release. The combat so far could use something. FTL does a better job of making it engaging and interactive.
Maybe the new people were hired on merit and not out of misplaced tokenism.
It would be great to hear from any super talented women who missed out on the job, I know there's like a million reasons why that wouldn't happen, without that this is a witch hunt for a likely invisible witch.
Some people seem to think they are owed a job as a writer/"insert fantasy job title here" because they try really hard. Grow up not everyone gets their dream job. Most people do jobs they dislike to survive or they strike out on there own (see the excellent Cara Ellison or GiantBomb ) they don't winge about perceived slights on the internet.
Also don't be a dick on the internet, if you really really hate what someone is saying on the internet ignore them I think this quote sums it up.
"There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."
It would be great if there was more bite size content, I love a 3 hour live show but having them back to back you reach a point of diminishing returns. Also If you are going to book women to come on to the live shows maybe try and get a 50/50 split they kinda got drowned out in the shows I've watched so far.
That said I have still been watching them.
I really like the floor stuff you guys did this year, but obviously you need to find products that you guys are excited about, it's great to hear you guys fresh out a demo it has this energy that you don't get on a podcast or liveshow after the fact.
