Updated: Media Alleges Ice-T Hates GamerGate, But GamerGate Loves Ice-T


A strange article popped up on The Daily Beast where they have reported on a conversation between rapper and SVU star, Ice-T, and the amorphous talking point, GamerGate. The sites reporting style seems to push the idea that GamerGate and Ice-T have a contentious relationship due to his role in the SVU episode depicting gamers as being literally ISIS. They have taken a few of his tweets, chronologically, and come to the conclusion, as stated in their headline, that: “Ice-T Schools Gamergate Punks”. Interestingly, the reaction to this exchange on 8chan, home of one of the more anonymous aspects of the GamerGate group, is that they think that he is “based”. “Based” is a term within internet culture to mean … Continue reading

Hacknet Preview – An Actual Hacking Simulator


Hacknet is the Unix network navigation simulator by the Australian developer Team Fractal Alligator and is being released by Surprise Attack Games. The objective of Hacknet is pretty simple, you must hack computers to complete mission objectives as set out by a fellow hacker in order to advance. The title employs a basic, but cool interface, and an amazing soundtrack to really push the feeling of Hacknet forward. We’re really having a lot of fun with it. As someone that’s been trained in Network Security and was in IT before starting on this site, seeing Hacknet posted on the internet was pretty interesting. I’ve seen a few games about hacking pop-up, but never a retail game based on the concept. … Continue reading

While it looks like we may have lost an anime contact, for reasons unknown to us (they even reached out to us on twitter to see if we were still interested in … Continue reading

Meet Culture Select, The New Japanese Localisation Team Behind Wish


Culture Select is an up and coming company that we have high hopes for, as it seems that they’re planning on bringing us gamers and fans even more of these niche Japanese titles, such as doujin games and Visual Novels.

You have both JAST USA and MangaGamer that are releasing and translating Visual Novels predominantly, while you also have the team at Nyu Media that are bringing over the smaller doujin experiences. But now we have Culture Select to look out for; and we recently sat down with their CEO across the internet … Continue reading
