GDC 2017 made me feel like game development isn’t even about games anymore

Did Jonathan Holmes just say that the DOA games promote beating of women?

It’s funny how deja vu things are in the games industry at the moment, because just recently I wrote a little OP piece about how today’s games journalists like to inject social activism and SJW nonsense into pretty much everything that they cover (I got another OP coming up about GDC 2017 on the topic of social activism in the games… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Dear “games journalists”, keep your social activism and fascism bs out of our games!

Sadly enough, as a Gamer I’ve gotten pretty used to have to deal with a lot of nonsense from the so-called established games media. As games journalists have been very anti-Gamer and Anti-Gaming for years. However, as of lately, things have gone from bad to even worse. I mean, you have the Jontron case, the Pewdiepie case, and just the other… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

This is why Arrow season 5 has been so disappointing so far

Arrow has promised a lot to fans for it’s 5th season, especially to make up for how terrible the ending was for Arrow Season 4. The Season 4 finale was comprised of Damian Darhk and Oliver Queen punching each other as if they were in a WWE match to say the least, and it didn’t sit well with critics or… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!
