Obviously consumers are going to do what they want, and this is only one more thing to add onto the incredibly long list of unethical production practices when it comes to video games. But while I can't imagine Metal Gear devotees staying away from what seems to be Hideo Kojima's final entry in the series, it could be tough to balance excitement for their favorite franchise with the knowledge that the people who made that game did so under these conditions.

It is the ultimate Catch-22: If I buy the game then I am supporting a corporate culture that is comically evil, and if I don't I encourage them to continue in this direction.

Sadly, this threat has gotten more prompt coverage than the dozens of women who have been more credibly threatened under the guise of #gamersgate.

I'm confused why there's no mention of the horrifying events that happened this weekend (pertaining to the threats made and lack of support from the games press). Silence is not okay.

Yeah, giant bomb remaining quiet during this is just grossing me out. They have a big audience, people listen to them. Say something.

Horrifying? What happened?

Patrick and Alex discussed it in today's Bombin video, which is on the site.

I would love to see @patrickklepek write something on this so it is prominently featured in the newsfeed and not buried on a podcast.

Loved the Sarkeesian video. While I wouldn't blame anyone who gives up criticizing games because of the harassment, attacks, and fear physical harm, I'm glad she is still out there pushing forward the discussion on women's issues and games.
