There don't seem to be any good articles up but if you lurk on /v/ or /pol/ a good thread will come up.
What happened is some SJW released a game called "depression quest":http://store.steampowered.com/app/270170/ (was 5 dollars but has mysteriously changed to free since I checked on it yesterday)
The SJW wants good reviews for the game, so she fucks 5 editors/reviewers at kotaku, and now shit is hitting the fan on /v/
also please leave a user tag for the game saying "5 guys" or "burgers" to spread awareness of the incident
the reviews on the steam page should tell you all you need to know
they do, and so do the screenshots
i wouldn't even go to /pol/ just to check for a specific thread but i did see quite a few on /v/, there's not really a whole lot to talk about regarding the issue though so i'm pretty sure all talking points are spent
Here's annoying 24 minute video all about it:
I didn't watch the whole thing but it seems like the most comprehensive report so far, since major outlets aren't covering it for mysterious reasons. It's funny because everyone already knew game journalists/staff writers at Kotaku were prostitutes, just not literal prostitutes.
i watched the whole thing. the guy gets a bit dramatic about it later on the video, talking about how somehow this girl has ruined gaming for everyone like this is the end of an epoch or something. give me a fucking break. it's a bit ironic because he's blowing the issue out of proportion like many of the gaming gossip sites he criticizes.
also he talks about how the game shouldn't be on steam because it's bad, as if steam ever gave a shit about quality products being put onto its marketplace. there are truckloads of garbage games on steam, and many of them try to get a lot more out of you than $5.
i don't think anyone will be talking about this in 2 weeks and in a few months it will be entirely forgotten. Kotaku was shit before this and it will continue to be shit. the more people who stop giving them traffic the better, but clickbait works and there are plenty of people who just don't give a shit.
Also this thing with Xseed happened. That's less to do with journalism and more just SJW's being SJW's, but the two overlap conspicuously. I care more about this because like ohmygah my precious weeb games. Xseed has consistently released more faithful translations than say NISA, Idea Factory or Carpe Fulger and I hope they don't stop now.
another classic case of 'your rights end where my feelings begin' pc bullshit. this is why twitter is a double edged sword as a social platform.
