    Poll: TotalBiscuit hired by the Escapist

    Aghghghghghghg.... I wish it were true, but it looks like I got April Fooled for at least 15 seconds.

    Poll: Worst gaming trend?

    I see THIS as the biggest problem in the gaming industry: outright hatred for the core audience. If you don't like us, why the f*** don't you LEAVE? We nerds have always been "beaten and shamed into submission" by cool kids like Sam Biddle (a Gawker gaming journalist who openly called for...

    Poll: Sexual Assault

    1) As I mentioned above, it's not a race thing; it's a practicality thing. It's a lot easier to be a predator when you're undocumented because nobody's documenting you and nobody knows about your convictions for rape in Ecuador. The other thing is that... eh... if you look at rape stats they...

    Poll: Sexual Assault

    Ahhh gotcha! Sorry, it's just that I hear a lot of bad stuff about things happening in border counties. Didn't know where you were. Not a race thing. Like I said: Latin, myself. More of a practical thing: much easier to be a predator when you're undocumented because nobody's keeping track of...

    Sad times for the escapist..........

    We'll live, mate. We'll live. Remember that, at this point, The Escapist is the only major gaming site that didn't call you a horrible example of hegemonic toxically-masculine patriarchy (aka Magic Penis Conspiracy) and openly wished for your destruction. I'm definitely excited for the future here.

    Poll: Sexual Assault

    Thanks, Fox! That was a very thoughtful comment. And I'll definitely agree with you're saying and go beyond: I'm sure that almost all women suffer harassment at some point in their lives and most men do as well. I can't imagine living a social life without encountering that.

    Thanks for sharing! That's some rough stuff.

    Poll: Sexual Assault

    Just curious: what's the deal with your neighborhood? Is it the illegals or just failure of rule-of-law (for the record, I'm Hispanic; I'm just asking because I legit want to know)? That stuff is seriously f***ed. Reminds me of the ghetto I moved to for college. Girlfriends from out of town...

    Poll: Sexual Assault

    Holy... that's pretty ****ed, man. Trust me, I've been with crazy: you dodged a bullet. People who mix coercion and attraction like that don't make good relationship material. I'm not trying to crap on your idea of romance but... dude, I've been there and you do NOT want what's behind Door...

    Poll: Worst gaming trend?

    I clicked "corruption" but what I really wanted to click was "Social Justice Warriors." It pains me to think that people like Leigh Alexander are paid to be in the games industry, despite not really liking video games (she's admitted this) and totally loathing the people who play them (she...

    Poll: Sexual Assault

    I'm going to play some serious devil's advocate here. I'm a man and I've been a victim of sexual assault. Thankfully it only happened once and it didn't get very far. A beefy jock at a party in college didn't like the way I was talking to his girlfriend, so he cornered me in a room, pinned me...

    Confess your nerd sins

    I don't like most JRPG's and anime. I feel the genres are havens for bad writing and wish fulfillment. I don't mean to offend anyone! Just my mea culpa!

    Jim Sterling leaves The Escapist

    This feels weird to say but... from everything I hear, I think I would have loved Jim Sterling if I had gotten to know his content before #GamerGate. However, because he chose to take a giant dump on my identity and the people I stand with, I have to say I'm glad he's gone from The Escapist. His...
