  • Ion Fury Devs Apologize for Numerous Sexist, Homophobic, and Transphobic Remarks

    Sweeping changes are promised as a result.

    Voidpoint, the studio behind the just released Ion Fury, has apologized for a series of "incidents" wherein multiple developers were found to use transphobic, ableist, homophobic, and sexist language in the game's official Discord channel. This is on top of some homophobic language found within the game itself.

    Over the weekend, a thread had popped up on gaming forum ResetEra that showed multiple instances where the developers had made transphobic remarks via Discord. Members of the dev team were also shown to make...

    E3 Event Organizers Leak Personal Information of Over 2,000 Journalists

    The full list includes personal information for journalists, editors, and content creators.

    The E3 website was home to an open secret for who knows how long now. On the site was a spreadsheet that contained the contact information, phone numbers, and personal addresses for over 2,000 game journalists, editors, and even some content creators. This spreadsheet, and all of the information it included, was publically accessible on the official E3 Expo site.

    E3 is run and operated by the Entertainment Software Association or ESA for short. Since being made aware of the publicly...

    THQ CEO Offers Largely Hollow Apology Following Disgusting AMA


    It's been roughly one week since THQ Nordic GmbH decided to do an AMA on 8chan, a site that is best known for allegations that they host and link to suspected child pornography, a site that contains rampant racism, a site that engages in harassment campaigns, and a site that engages in doxxing. These are just a few of their most notable "issues." Again, it's a place where people go when even 4chan thinks they're too fucked up.

    It took THQ Nordic over 15 hours to remove the link to 8chan from their Twitter timeline. That's 15 hours that a game publisher left up a...

    THQ Nordic Just Held a Q&A on a Site Banned for Child Exploitation

    Since then, the company has issued an apology saying that they did not do their "proper due diligence to understand the history and the controversy of the site." They're full of shit.

    A bit earlier today, THQ Nordic's PR team of Philipp Brock and Reinhard Pollice thought it would be a grand idea to host a Q&A (otherwise known as an "Ask Me Anything" or AMA) on 8chan. For those happily unaware, 8chan has been involved in multiple instances of child abuse, child exploitation, swatting, GamerGate, white supremacy, doxxing, and more. It has been delisted from search...

    Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance (PC)

    I don't remember history being this buggy.
    If there is one area that video games come up short in, it's when they attempt to tackle real-life history. Specifically, games come up well short in being historically accurate without also including a healthy dose of embellishment or suspension of disbelief. In nearly all of the games that focus on real-world history, you almost always play as some overpowered jack-of-all-trades. Yes, this includes games and franchises such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, Total War, Civilization, and even Assassin's Creed.

    Thankfully, we have a game like Kingdom Come: Deliverance that comes along to not only embrace the idea of a "historically accurate" game but to completely redefine what the genre should be striving to achieve. Kingdom Come is set in 15th century Bohemia and no, you aren't some all-powerful character that somehow knows how to fight like a God and tank hits like your body was made of solid steel. You start out as a nobody named...

    Playtonic Removes JonTron from Yooka-Laylee

    FBI Releases Report on Investigation into GamerGate

    Earlier today, the FBI released their report on the investigation into GamerGate. If nothing else, this should remove any remaining doubt that GamerGate began as a harassment campaign chiefly against women in the gaming industry, then against women in general, and then eventually against pretty much anybody that wasn't a straight, white male (though even they weren't excluded). The report is 173 pages long and contains all matter of threats, ranging from emails to tweets. It also includes various correspondence between the victims and the investigators. There is also a lot of information that has been redacted from public view. Some examples can be seen be...

    Ashley Judd Slams Game Industry for Profiting Off of GamerGate and Misogyny

    As part of a recent TED Talk about the abuse of women online, actor Ashley Judd dedicated a segment of her 15 minute talk towards the hypocrisy of the gaming industry. She began by talking about the abuse she endures every day online simply for being a woman. She explained the effects the abuse has had on her and offered up insight on the trauma many women endure every day online. Judd says that she has periodically been the target of a "cyber mob" that has sent her countless rape and death threats. It has gotten to the point where she had to get someone to go through and scrub her feed for her so she doesn't have to read it herself. This is when she ...
