Noticed that this seems to be happening again for me with The Beastcast.

@wrighteous86: And I think that places like MSNBC are a perfectly valid venue to have the larger conversations around this stuff. But I do not go to the IGN ENTERTAINMENT website to hear about death threats or feminism or any social issue for that matter. I go there to watch Greg Miller make bad jokes, or for cool shit - like the feature Jose just did about the unreleased canceled Rogue Squadron collection for Wii. That looked rad.

Calling out sites like Giant Bomb and IGN amongst others for not "taking a stance" on social issues is such a stupid thing. I like Giant Bomb mostly because it's fucking dumb in the best way possible. I do not go here for cultural and social issues: leave that shit to Slate (which I do read, and their podcasts are great).

@amyggen: No, I know... it's more just that it's like in my Twitter feed and shit every day now and I'm so tired of it. I'm glad Patrick is writing about it, I really am – I love pretty much everything that guy does. I just don't understand what all the fighting is for.

@wrighteous86: I have sympathy. Lots of it. What I'm saying is I enjoyed this community a lot more when this wasn't a thing all the time. It sucks that it is a thing. So can everyone just calm the fuck down? Video games are not important enough for people to be questioning "journalistic ethics" nor for anyone to receive death threats over.

Vinny is moving thousands of miles closer to me, yet somehow I'm not stoked. I mean, don't get me wrong - I'm happy for my boy... but Vinny is a good portion of my enjoyment of the Giant Bombcast, and this sounds like it'll probably mean the end of his regular appearance there :(

I've discussed the hiring process with a former CBSi exec, and they basically said it can be pretty knee jerk considering the amount of resumes they receive. They also said they had received the impression that one of the positions had been filled. My guess is that if you're seeing "requisition closed" then that position was the Associate Producer. With the speed at which that happened (I talked with this person on Monday), my guess would be that they already had a candidate pegged, probably internally. But that part is just a guess.

I applied for the Editor position, and there's been no status change. I know I don't post on here very often and not many of you know me, but I promise if I get the position I will make you duders (and lady duders) proud! <3

I miss that big man...

Merry Christmas, Patrick! Great picks. Was surprised to see Papers, Please! at the top, but it's inspired me to revisit it. I don't think I ever made it more than 12 days or so.
