Has Nintendo Treehouse injected SJW nonsense into Puyo Puyo Tetris for the Switch?

***Update 1 – 2017-04-23-00:52 CEST*** I have just been told that the “harassment” part of “Puyo Puyo Tetris” is a game feature that allows you to dump stuff on the other player’s screen. So “hopefully” that’s all there is to this matter (no Treehouse SJW madness and so on). Credit: Just Lyle ————————————————- I know that I am “bit” late… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

A response to Dorkly’s Star Wars Battlefront II article – Haters gonna hate

In a recent article titled, “The New Star Wars Game Stars a Woman and Whiny Pissboys Got Triggered”, Tristan Cooper of Dorkly spends his time making fun of certain individuals over their reaction to the reveal that Star Wars: Battlefront II has a female protagonist (I’m going to let you decide if it’s worse or better than Bleeding Cool’s SWBFII article…)….

Bethesda PR accidentally invites Kotaku to a Prey event, then immediately uninvites them?

As some of you might remember, Kotaku ended up on Bethesda’s and Ubisoft’s industry blacklist back in 2015. Well, guess what? It seems like Bethesda still doesn’t want to have anything to do with Kotaku. So much so that that a rather embarrasing situation took place just recently. You see, it appears as if a Bethesda PR-person accidentally invited Kotaku to a… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Nintendo Direct 4.12.2017 – Thoughts on ARMS, Splatoon 2, and more!

The Nintendo Direct for April 12th mostly covered new additions to “ARMS” and “Splatoon 2”. Nevertheless, a good couple of chunks before the Direct and between the two main show casings they filled the video with Headlines for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch. Starting with Nintendo 3DS news we begin with “Hey! Pikmin” (July 28), which just covers the… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Brash Games is an unethical train wreck that exploits their writers and much more – Ethics 101

Nevertheless, I was able to collect everything that I needed in-order to nail this OP down. So let’s jump directly into the action shall we? Before I… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Is Polygon trying to get Pewdiepie banned from Twitch?

I (Robin Ek, TGG) had a feeling that the Youtube situation would become much worse after the Pewdiepie Disney aftermath “incident” (I’m going to cover the Pewdiepie, Polygon and Switch part shortly). As it gave me a really, really bad vibe of what’s coming up next. Well, I wasn’t wrong, because if you didn’t know it. Youtube has become a big mess thanks… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

“A Herstory of Gaming” – Did just Joey Relton put Brianna Wu among female video game pioneers?

I know that I (Robin Ek, TGG) have stated in the past that I/we wouldn’t bring up Brinna Wu again as we don’t want to feed her any free PR (I still remember my Samus Aran/Metroid beef with her). Well, I’ve kept my word uptil this point. Because it appears as if I’ve been taken for a ride as of… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Gearbox cuts ties with G2A because they failed to meet their ethics demands – This is why we left G2A in the past

Before I (Robin Ek, TGG) jump into the story about Gearbox, G2A and Totalbiscuit. I want to share a story of our own about G2A. You see, we worked together with them for about a year (we ended our business relationship with them in 2015). Well, during the first couple of months everything seemed to work just fine. As we got… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

The risks of backing games on Kickstarter – When backer money goes up in smoke

I (Robin Ek, TGG) have had some rather mixed feelings about crowdfunding as of lately, and rightfully so. As it’s come to my attention that there have been quite a few video game campaigns which have never been finished (as in “never released”), and yes, I’m fully aware of the fact that there exists more than one crowdfunding platform nowadays… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

PETA gets outraged by Nintendo’s cow milking game in 1-2 Switch?

Before I drop my thoughts on this subject, I just want to point out that I’m an animal friend, and I have pretty much stopped to eat meat (I changed my mind about meat when I started to take care of animals myself). So, why am I bringing that up? It’s because PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Gamers! Don’t let fascism happen to you! – Here we go again, SJW propaganda in the world of games

Well, if you didn’t read any of those posts, then please to allow me to summarize what I think about SJW propaganda in the world of games. I simply don’t like it at all,… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Debunking the claimed link between sexism and video games

A recent article came out by a collaboration force of Iowa State University, University Grenoble Alpes and Universite Savoie Mont Blanc of France talking about sexism and video game exposure in adolescents. As one may expect, based on the first sentence which reads, “Research has indicated that many video games are saturated with stereotypes of women and that these contents may… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!
