Ok finished reading and listening

This stuff went on in the 80's surrounding the video game world, this is nothing new.
Atari had people sleeping with people all up and down the chain back in the day. It would not surprise me one bit if that led to journalism as well.

Why is Phil Fish even involved in this at all?


He's in a crusade to disagree with and piss off every gamer out there. Plus he likes the V of a strong, independent woman.


He is one of Zoe Quinn's biggest donator.

I'm going to have to be a Phil Fish and say you're wrong ;)

Also pics of that five guys being built or it didn't happen.


Hilarious that it's right beside EB Games, even more so that tbh. I never knew/saw a Five Guys before all this. (I think it's the only Five Guys where I live.)

On what Aerothos was saying. It's actually extremely scary on how people are still siding with her.
I swear, she's like an ugly succubus. Even more so, she's getting the media's side without playing the "OMG, I'M SO SUICIDAL NOW BECAUSE OF ALL THIS." card.

You're the hero Gamefaqs deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

Sterling also has a slightly similar tone on the next page; not about that article, but basically: "I'm sorry... I still believe I'm right, though, so not really. Hopefully you'll shut up now."

You are badly misrepresenting his post. He said he was sorry if anyone was wrongly harassed due to his video. He only maintained the validity of the basic message of his video: "When someone's in trouble, we are often too quick to find the reason why they brought it on themselves." These two statements are not at all contradictory.

Regardless of how much I disagree with that message, you badly misinterpreted and/or misrepresented the nature of his post.


Maybe in this instance but Sterling is completely unapologetic in his towing of the party line.

What really makes me upset on a personal level about this whole affair is the amount of people who I used to hold some measure of respect for just falling in lock step with one person's narrative. I feel more sad right now than any other emotion.

Just throwing this out there

"Quinn is also interested in body modification, and has implanted a chip in the back of her hand that can be programmed to perform various functions. Her first use of the chip was to load it with a download code for the game Deus Ex. Quinn also has a magnetic implant in her left ring finger."

She sold her soul to the devil and underwent the mark of the beast. (Possible Monarch Programming sex kitten? Since she's sleeping around so much) Who in the world would willing go through this thing for stupid reasons?

Phil Fish made a game called Fez....FEZ for crying out loud!
Fez = Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (Shriners - 33rd freemasons)

Anyway this is a good start. I barely know anything about this whole deal since I don't care

God knows what card she played in an email or over a phone call ya know? She has more cards in her hand than anyone i've ever heard of and seems adept at figuring out which one to use to get her way in any situation. What scares me is that the mods here are shutting down the threads about it....few sites are covering this as it is.

I'm not saying she hopped on a plane and went on a screwing spree with the staff of every gaming news site, but christ she has some serious pull to get all that done. Some of them have to save face due to her relationships with there staff, but quite a few seem to have nothing to lose and a lot of clicks to gain by covering this and won't.

WTF is being said to them to get them not to cover it? Do they seriously just like her/her friends that much? Do the indie crowd and game news sites staffs all just get together and hang out on occasion? It can't be that they just feel sorry for her, I mean for christ sakes she framed an innocent group of people, had donations put directly into her personal account, and ruined a game jam for aspiring female game makers so she could make money. They have to see how greedy and manipulative and my god virtually evil this person is.

I don't care about about this subject, but I'm not opposed to posting Edmund McMillan's thoughts:

"Stance on the Zoe thing, do you refuse to express your opinion, or do you just not give a ****?

you have no idea how ******** i think it is that people care or bother talking about stuff like this, like its a thing… the fact that “my industry” feels the need to talk about bs like this.. or about any social/personal bs is mind blowing and confirms my feelings about how much this is a scene of loser animals who have no artistic merit.

this is less about one thing as it is everything, every week its a new story blown out of portion about how everyone is a ****/rapist/racist/misogynist who obviously have no idea what its like to have any of those things happen to them nor do they understand how life actually works, or when something is none of anyone else business.

we live in a pod of social justice implosion, all the extremest are at war with themselves, everyone is standing on one clear side of the street but the more this community grows the more segregated it becomes and the more extreme peoples views become.

im in this to make games, i want no part of this scene of broken animals attempting to act human to make themselves feel better or important."
