Well, I can tell that this discussion si going to be perfectly civil, pleasant, and polite.

(Seriously though, people; be nice.)

Bob 'PC-Gaming-is-Dead' Chipman, surely?

C'mon! Let's give old controversies some love and be smug in hindsight.

No publicity is bad publicity, I guess.

HAHA! Well they do say go big or go home... but isn't getting a billboard kind of counter productive to the whole "get free advertising" idea?

Welcome to the wonderful world of being accused of being a SJW Erin ... or should I say ...

Welcome to Hell!
Nah, you'll probably like it, I mean Jim and Bob do get shit upon, but they deliver trucks and destroy whoever oppose them, bwahahahaha!

Queen Michael:

That's like asking starving lions not to rip apart that poor defenceless zebra.

I don't know how neither Cory or Grey ended up on that list, after WGDF.

Quick, guys! Free publicity, just release a new WGDF!

Lees' hair is quite preposterous, isn't it?

It must run about while he's sleeping and then before he wakes up it goes back on his head so that he doesn't notice.

Erin's boss has it wrong. Erin doesn't need to say anything inflammatory. She nearly needs to continue that sentence about diversity and by the time it hits the web, it'll BE "all white men are rapists."

As someone who evidently is "infamous,"I should know!

MarsAtlas:

Baffling, innit? I would think they'd be public enemies #1 and 2 with the response that got.

Acting like a dickwack grants you free advertising. EA was right all along!!!

No, a sentence about equality would be pretty much ignored on either side. If a SJW says it, #gamergate will just pass over it in favor of cherry picking the hatespeech. If someone on the #gamergate side of things says something about equality the sjws will pass right over it and slander them with muh-soggy-knee anyway.

The internet hates my two favorite Escapist contributors. Great!

(I disliked Sterling when he gave Kid Icarus Uprising a 5/10. But Jimquisition is great, so whatever.)

Yes. Do it.

You need only have the first panel for this to be a masterpiece

What white men do in their spare time is their own business: can they make good games?

Dude, I don't think you know who you're talking to. As an internet infamous SJW who has been labeled "the worst of the social justice warriors" for pointing out things like the fact that women have served in wars, I think I've got a pretty good grasp on what it takes to start a shitstorm.

Actually, one need not look further than Anita Sarkeesian, a woman who could read the ingredients of breakfast cereal and still get hatemail based on it.

How do you dislike a person for a single review? Did he compare Uprising to Hitler or something?

Even though I still enjoy the comic to some extent, I find it hard to take the political stuff more seriously once I discovered how large of a hypocrite Grey is. Using the Gaza Defense on why we shouldn't talk about corrupt journos just weeks after ridiculing the Gaza Defense is incredibly asinine.

Are you joking around or has a point gone completely over your head?

Jim Sterling resembles nothing so much as an angry side-loading washing machine.

Wow. Mr. Sterling's character lends itself to being visually caricatured fairly easily, but I am impressed at how much such that drawing is identifiable as Bob Chipman.

As to the list...that thing seriously pisses me off. I do not believe even a little bit that its creator understands what the word "censorship" means, and I would love to know how he defines it such that whatever the people he complains about are censoring him but his trying to silence those people by taking away their jobs does not meet that same definition.

I don't understand, isn't this essentially the same joke as "White Guy Defense Force"?

It's funny because no matter what viewpoint you have this comic reaffirms it.

Westaway:

It's the gift that keeps on giving!

I almost missed the humor in the first panel, just reading the speech-bubbles. Sneaky sneaky
(Or I'm just unobservant, whatever)

One might hazard a guess (I don't use that phrase often enough that you might be the firestarter, twisted firestarter?

OT: Nice job. What would the White Guy Defense Force do if they met the SJW Army?

Bad first impression. I didn't know who he was back then.

I see. That makes sense, I guess. Thanks for the answer.

Maybe take a step down off your soapbox, Zach; you can stir up an argument in the Escapist forums, you're not "internet infamous". A quick Google turns up only your Youtube and Nostalgia Critic accounts, so unless you're secretly Zoe Quinn you might want to reconsider how big an impact you have.

OT: Now all the boss needs is a picture of Erin holding a whiteboard and she can start whatever she wants.

Good comic today. Short, to the point, maybe even a bit measured in its delivery.

I tend to find that about half the comics your outfit puts out are too high-concept for me: either I just don't get it or, when I do get what you're talking about, it seems like you were more interested in being clever than being funny. But this one works, and I think it's a nice comment on the...uh, 'fun' that people are having these days on the issue of gamers getting political in whatever direction.

Can I just mention how awesomely Erin is drawn in this one? Especially in panels 3 and 4.

Why? This isn't Destructoid.

If you don't get the joke...

....Jim gave Vanquish 5 out of 10?

I feel conflicted.

Damnations! The youtube video is not available in my country!

I feel cheated out of a cheap shot!

It is being ignored because diversity is not what gamergate is trying to oppose. There has never been a pushback against more diversety for crying out loud.

They push back against shitflingers who call us all (you included btw if you play games) mysoginerds and other nice things just because we do not agree with the practices and arguments of professional victims and the conflicts of internet in games journalism where everyone is buddy buddy and interconnected to each other to such a degree that it makes your head spin, and the people that support them blindly.

Gamergate isnt ignoring the moderate people, they are simply not attacking them because they are not what gamergate stands against. And btw, gamers do call out the shitflingers on their own side quite often and rather strongly, but the nature of the internet makes it so that assholes can be assholes and no one can really do something against it kept for pointing those people out.

The reason these moderate people are mainly ignored is because they are not the enemy. Why should they be focused on when they arent the ones pointing fingers at gamers everywhere and calling them "mysogynerds" and worse? They have done nothing wrong.. they havent attacked gamers... and their arguments are also not wrong.

Gamergate is not against diversity and a better portrayal of EVERYONE in gaming, they are against being told that they are women hating fat bastards with neckbeards and yellowing underpants who are afraid the boys club is being invaded by the cooties, when over 45 % of gamers nowadays are allready female and the medium is more welcoming to any gender and sexual orientation THEN ANY OTHER HOBBY IN THE WORLD.

Dont believe me? Try to come out as a star basketball or football or soccer player. Try to get into the scouts as a kid if you are gay. Try to play with the guys in sports if youre a women. Or try to play with the girls if you are a male but identify as a woman.

You know where this stuff doesnt matter to anyone? In gaming.

And yet... we all hate women, people of different color and sexual orientation.

Screw the rules! I have green hair!

It's been 3 years since this, how long are we going to cling to something Bob said?, I noticed you linked it in the attempt to reignite the old discussion but it's been over and done with for 3 years now.

OT: I get the joke but I can't really get with all the commotion still going on through every section of this website.

Zachary Amaranth:

Pffft-didn't you hear? Her kickstarter to read off a cereal box got a lot of money! And all because she received a few whiny crybaby "harassments" and "death threats with her address included". What a whiny baby. God, I bet the whole thing's just a scam.

Ahhh, I forgot about that. That's why I stopped listening to MovieBob for gaming news. Well, that and his constant harping on about how grey and dull Halo is/was.
