    Escapist News Now: Escapist Celebrates 8 Years!

    Man, remember when the escapist was a handful of amazing and thought-provoking articles each week and not a bunch of kind of funny videos (lol video games amirite) with some half-assed "game journalism" and what is one of the most increasingly toxic community around.

    Calling a Kid the "C" Word

    A) No she didn't. B) SHE'S FUCKING 9! Do you make it an habit to go around insulting 9-year-olds?

    Jimquisition: Fake Nerd Girls

    If the last 19 pages are what gaming "culture" is about, horrible elitism, mistrust, crass barely hidden misogyny, then maybe it's not worth saving at all from whatever imaginary threat it is facing. Let's burn it to the ground and salt the earth. Let people enjoy games like they enjoy movies or...

    Jimquisition: Fake Nerd Girls

    URHG! Nerd culture (whatever that is) was also founded by nerdy women like Roberta Williams, Carol Shaw, Dona Bailey, Anne Westfall, Jane Jensen, Brenda Laurel, Brenda Brathwaite, Janet Murray, Amy Briggs, Danielle Bunten Berry, etc... If little boys cannot control themselves when a girl is...

    Most anticipated, as dumb a category as it is, is about games that we know are coming out next year. WATCH_DOGS is 2-3 years away at least and for yet unknown next gen consoles.

    To all of you hating on this right now, I hope you realize that TF2 is basically a freemium game right?

    Flash Game Makes Players Beat Up "Tropes vs. Women" Creator

    Fuck, did you ever take a literature or cinema class? Characters make decisions WITHIN the fiction, but that fiction, the choices (the character makes in movies/books or are available to you in games) and the characters are all created by someone who orders all of this. Nothing is created in a...

    Flash Game Makes Players Beat Up "Tropes vs. Women" Creator

    It's fair use because she's not selling them, she is giving them away as a bonus for a donation. If they'd sue her for that, they'd pretty much have to sue every fan games based on a Nintendo product available on websites with a donate button.

    Flash Game Makes Players Beat Up "Tropes vs. Women" Creator

    Those women did not choose to dress like this, they were designed this way by MALE devs to cater to other MALE gamers. Feminists don't have a problem with sexy women, just with the exploitation of female sexuality. Also, to those saying you don't need money to make research: fuck off...

    Rise for This Live Action Assassin's Creed III Trailer

    Hey guys maybe you should calm down because I'm pretty they are not going to show some twists in trailers as to why you would kill some americains. Just chill and wait for the game to be out before passing final judgment on the quantity of people you kill.

    Kickstarter Video Project Attracts Misogynist Horde

    A) People can throw money wherever they like and support the projects they feel are important (and in this case, it is) B) Don't point to a video of some asshole making ridicule of said project as an argument.
