I would've wrote this in the article comment, but that was locked off, so I'm posting it here.

To Patrick Kleptek,

Your recent article about Anita Sarkeesian doesn't irk me. It's a fact, and you are reporting facts.

What irks me is that you are being selective with information. Obviously, this woman is, unfortunately, a large part of #gamergate scandal. By releasing information and writing articles in such selective fashion that is only beneficial to one side of the argument, I don't think you can escape being criticized for being biased. Granted what has happened here is unfortunate, and such misconduct shouldn't be condoned, but if you are going to cover the story, please do cover the ENTIRE story, not only parts of it.

I do not see any articles related to #gamergate, despite there being so much story to it.

Also the tone of your words in those articles don't really help either, although I do agree such events are quickly becoming tiresome.

I thought GiantBomb's policy is to stay out of #gamergate story until things settle down, so it can be discussed in civilized manner. This kind of selective journalism is nothing more than biased propaganda.

Either cover the entire story, or don't cover it at all. Cherry picking stories like this makes me question GiantBomb and YOUR integrity as journalists.

I became a supporter of Giantbomb because I sympathized with Jeff back in 2007. I really wish I do not have to question the integrity of this site, but such selective journalism is making that difficult to hold my trust in your site. Please, either start discussing about #gamergate in order to dissuade all the suspicions your readers have on gaming journalism (which you are part of), or like you said in your videos, stay out of it until it is the right time to discuss. I do prefer the former option, as GiantBomb is kind of central to the whole plot when it comes to journalistic integrity as it was created out of direct result of the first controversy of the subject back in 2007. The words from your site holds much stronger weight compared to others out there in my opinion. Remaining silent like this cannot be good for anyone. Gamers, Game Journalists, Game Developers, or Game Publishers.

I don't know. Am I being unreasonable? Am I just being one of those "misogynistic gamer" here? Or am I just a reader that is sick and tired of this controlled media censorship? Why don't you tell me?

WTF? I come online giddy that this is Tuesday, so I can go through my weekly routine of listening to bombcast, and this is the news I find out.

I must've checked my calender about 10 times, to make sure today was not April 1st.

I know it doesn't mean much, but my life officially got much worse with this news.

All I can say is that, Ryan, you will always be remembered and missed by me.

well I'm glad I never bought Infamous and Dead Nation.

Two games I was sorta interested, but ended up not getting.

What can the developers possibly do to this game to attract fans? SCIV is out there now, and if this game don't have some massive upgrade in gameplay AND extras, then I just don't see the appeal...

I would've much more preferred if they said "We will make a serious Dragonball fighting game!"

I feel Jeff and Vinny TRIES to enjoy the game.
While Brad and Ryan seems more like stuck doing this because it's their job.
Would be nice if they keep more of open mind about this, but then again the different attitude for different team is what makes it interesting. 
So in my mind, I get to see how cool people would approach this game (VJ) and how a typical American gamers would approach this game (BR)

Seen Death Note, Last Exile, Texhnolyze, Now and Then, Here and There.
I was really disappointed with Death Note (2nd half SUCKED)
Loved Last Exile
Not a big fan of Texhnolyze and Now and Then, Here and There. 
Haven't seen Guvyer and Immortalsaiyan. Will check out those two.

haven't seen record of lodoss war and ancient book of Ys.
Thanks I'll try those. 
Have seen Hellsing, Bastard!, Fist of North Star, and Devilman. Hellsing and Bastard was great. Not a big fan of latter two. 
It's been great help guys. Would appreciate if you guys post more for further reference.

Yeah I love Claymore. Been keeping up with manga as well. 
If it's recent, there's good chance I've seen it. 
I'm looking for something I might've over-looked back in the days when it was difficult to find anime.

#9 Posted by TriangleHard (88 posts) -

I've seen Trigun, Basilisk, and Ninja Scroll. 
Something like Trigun is what I'd be interested.  (btw also watched Desert Punk just in case)
Basilisk not so much as it lacks details to it's story. 
Never was a fan of Ninja Scroll.
Thanks for infos, but anything else?

Loved Berserk, and yes that's the type of anime I'm looking for.
The drama, strategic elements, romance, magical, etc was great. 
But again unfortunately, I've seen it.
