Guys don't all play games the same way (same with females). With all the gamergate crap going on, you're doing a great job of reinforcing stereotypes.

John Birmingham ducks in to say...

Actually, I hoping to do something about ethics in game journalism.

Bunyip is gonna tell you...

What? Females play games? But....but...

How can they do that and make me a sandwich at the same time?

So Maurizio are you saying "not all men gamers"?

"snerk"... or whatever the sound you make when you try to stifle a laugh on a topical and clever meme at work and don't want to spend 20 minutes bringing everyone up to speed on why this is funny

The point of the video is to subvert stereotypes.

Gonna watch this in a minute but as I recall, I generally took the sniper rifle and found a place to hide. Then I'd just pop people.

Once I got a mike for my XBox I found there wasn't anything on the other end to talk to so I turned it off. Didn't even bother with IMs.

Oh, I believe the Kansas City Royals just won Game 6 of the World Series. Game 7 tomorrow I think.

Never thought I'd see it happen.

"Kansas City Royals just won Game 6" which means some raido stations are obliged to play NZ's singer Lorde's "Royals" every hour on the hour.

I'd be interested in Tassie Codriver''s thoughts on this as he writes the odd article on gaming.

I've taken my gaming a bit too seriously in the past. Ok way to seriously to the point of team training twice a week before a ladder match. Why are people looking at me funny again? But I stopped that because it turns out that many gamers who are obsessed enough to join a clan and train are also total jerkwads. The teens and early 20s guys are the worst.

There is a cartoon by the Oatmeal that completely sums up my online gaming experience as an adult.

That's the cartoon.

It's a shame MrsS won't go cave diving or hangliding.

Though I must say, the theme in the videos Vovchara linked seems outlandishly stupid to me. In my own writing I'd think I was overdoing it if I tried to do a character so capable of missing the point. Truth is stranger than fiction I know, but still?

FWIW I find Sarkesian pretty straightforward and simple. She provides possibly the tamest feminist critique I've ever seen of anything. If some of you blokes have a problem with her, I'm afraid the violently militant lesbian separatists will make shepherd's pie out of you. And they'll probably be entirely justified. I mean, really? Sheeet.

Vovchara would have you know...

isn't it just peachy when so much outrage created by virtually (no pun intended) no issues.
When at the same time there are so many things go unnoticed, which do not require mental acrobatics to fill outrage?

That's awesome too w. Course anything with Carrie Brownstein in it is awesome.
