They deserve to be reported on, and they deserve to scrutinised

Good thing we have games journalism to tell us who deserves to be reported on and scrutinized. Turns out it's everybody but them and their friends.


I feel safe now. Thanks to them I don't have to think for myself! I just wait until they tell me what's right or wrong!, because you know... That's reaaaaal journalism.

That's directly related to the earlier posted indiegogo to raise funds... Sounds to me like these two are just trying to get paid.

Look at the bottom of the page and "Art Monzon" is listed as part of the "team", and the woman in the video says that's her husband...

Lawyers generally don't scam people for money directly. They generally scam people for prestige in their field (which makes them a lot more money), which requires actually doing something.

That having been said, I hope that nobody gives them money until they provide an extremely specific explanation of what, exactly, they'll be doing.

I would have a real lawyer look into this because, seeing as how there's no one rights have been actually trampled on (safe for some immature name calling from all those involved) I don't think legal action can be taken. At least not until someone really gets hurt.

They're probably going to mostly look into the IGF part of things. I know I saw some indie devs in IRC who've entered IGF and are pissed about this and mentioned wanting to take legal action if it's possible.

But ya, wait until the video at least before deciding. being husband/wife is pretty iffy though so they better have a good plan.

Yeah, if you looked at the page they say
Accepting submissions for any relevant information regarding possible illegal activity surrounding #gamer gate. Specifically the incident involving Independent Games Festival (IGF). Consolidation of possible evidence will be extremely welcome. Also any Developer that wants to come forward is more than welcome to contact us here.


Also they're doing an AMA on reddit, but I think they probably didn't give it enough warning/time for an audience to build up...
