Petition Appears To Kick Adam Baldwin From Attending Supanova As He Supports #GamerGate

adam-baldwin-twitter

In one of the most bizarre cases I’ve ever seen in my entire life, the actor known best for his roles in both FireFly and Chuck (or for those of us with good film tastes, Full Metal Jacket) is being targeted by a petition for his removal as a guest from the convention, Supanova, where is attributed as being a guest later this year. Appearing alongside him is FireFly co-actor Morena Baccarin, who played as Inara. What makes this petition so odd is that the petition requests that he not be allowed to attend because he is a #Gamergate supporter (he coined the hashtag) and that he has apparently doxxed and threatened people over the internet. Interestingly, while the petition … Continue reading

PC-MASTER-RACE-pc-gamer

This is something that we’d never thought we’d see reach the light of day. A website proclaiming itself to be about PC gaming, PC Gamer, has suddenly decided that it no longer wants to be a part of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race and instead wants all PC gamers to drop the title. The site goes on to talk about the origins of the phrase, as both an internet meme and a historical appropriation to decide that all PC gamers are racists. We discuss this below. Starting an editorial piece with a metaphor can sometimes be a good idea if you have absolutely no way of starting an article by clearly stating what it is that you’re talking about … Continue reading

Getting Your Origin Account Hacked Is A Terrible Experience

origin_logo

Video game, always online, account hacks are something that you hear about quite often in the current stream of gaming, but getting hacked is something that you never quite expect to happen to you. This was me before today. Typically, I would assume that these people that got hacked were somehow at fault themselves, maybe they clicked on a phishing link, maybe they have contracted a virus. But, now that it’s happened to me, someone with a degree in Network Security, I know that it can happen to anyone out of the blue. This is my story. Just today while I was jumping onto EA’s Origin service, I noticed a strange message popup on my screen. The message stated that … Continue reading

baynetta-bloody-fate-box-art

As a lot of Bayonetta fans are blatantly aware, there is an Anime adaptation of the Bayonetta storyline as a film called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate.

Stardock CEO Brad Wardell Once Again Targeted By Gaming Media

stardock-and-the-shit-hitting-the-fan

Just yesterday, the CEO of Stardock wrote to his personal blog about being targeted by members of gaming developers and media professionals. In his blog, he listed both Zoe Quinn and Jim Sterling by name as attackers of his after he tweeted to a random person on Twitter asking them to send through their resume. After sending the request for a resume to an artist, Wardell states that both Zoe Quinn and Jim Sterling attempted to use his false rape accusations against him. The reasoning for this is that the artist he was requesting a resume of had apparently drawn lewd artwork of Zoe Quinn in the past. You can read Brad’s full account here, on his official blog. @ShreddedMoose … Continue reading
