I only haz 7 dollarz Joe. Howz canz I affordz Alienware Area 51 Desktop (upwards of 2,000) like you and affordz mountain dewz too?
shut up fgt
I never heard of SWATing, that’s fucking sickening. I don’t really play online, especially competitive games, just not my thing. I used to think someone screaming racist/homophobic trite in your ear was the worst that could happen. This, however, may be the strongest case for government legislation stepping in and controlling the gaming community, great job guys.
Early access and Microtransactions will kill gaming. That’s my honest oppinion.
Gamersgate has nothing to to with sexism, only with corrupt gaming journalists. That’s the reason these journalists fired so much against gamers.
Look at the hyped reviews for Evolve, and you understand better, what the reasons for the gamers are, to distrust all paid game reviewers nowadays. They are all bought, and you cannot depend on their “judgement” any more. Like our paid politicians in all countries on earth.
If GamerGate was about ethical journalism, why do they support unethical journalism (a la Escapist) if the unethical journalism supports them? Why are their targets either women (Zoe Quinn and Brianna Wu are developers to top it off) or the people who don’t directly hate those women? It’s a witch hunt.
Regarding GG. I just stay of twitter because, lets face it, twitter is for marketing tools and 99% of twitter is stupid junk.
I don’t see why #10 matters… like… at all. That kind of stuff is what a lot of people spend their time doing in GTA. Not that Fox, etc. don’t accuse GTA of the same thing, but why is it even on this list?
#10 wasn’t about the content, really (although the length that Joe went on about it kinda confused the point), it was about how Steam lets broken stupid bullshit games on via Greenlight with the statement that they want to be hands off and blah blah blah, yet when this game started making the media rounds they tripped over themselves to pull it…after which they had to apologize and restore it due to the backlash and perceived censorship.
I only recently heard about gamergate, so i did a little searching about gamergate and didn’t understand what the hell was going on about it. Seeing this video made me realize better what it was about, and i think that shouldn’t have even been a controversy. It’s such a stupid thing to freak out about that I still barely understand, or even care. Both side barely make any sense in what they are trying to protect, i and when i searched about it, i couldn’t figure out which side was “good” and which side was “Bad”, and after a while, i realized both sides were pretty stupid. This is the first and hopefully the last thing that i write that has anything to do with gamergate. Oh yeah, and I can’t believe that there are actually people who call the SWAT to some innocent person’s house just for a brief moment of “fun” for them. It is absolutely rude, and a complete fucking invasion of their private life through a third party.
Joe, mate… you’re so angry!!
WTF Swatting ?!?! Thats the dumbest thing ive seen..wow they could really get shot…
Tonight’s Law & Order: SVU must have watched Angry Joe’s 2014 Controversies… 1. Gamergate, 2. SWATting, 3. Hatred. Their attempts at l33t speak also fell flat. I usually like SVU, but this one was horrible… Finn (Ice T) a hardcore FPS gamer, sorry. They even threw in a Goonsquad-esque logo. This was actually a little surprising and was the ONLY thing they didn’t explain or really call attention to. I know, not part of this video, but I thought that was interesting because apparently some of them DO know gaming, too bad the actors couldn’t pull it off.
GG-er here, Joe got it mostly right.
I totally agree with the parenting comments! I am a parent and I believe that if you don’t watch what they play, then you might as well have your ass beat in the street! Gaming will never be like it used to with games like Hatred and the gamer-gate crap going on!!!!
Wow, good to see the fanboys that are trying to most of the time suck Joes cock while he calls them a idiot (btw what happened to not accepting review copys and buying it day 1 like the rest of us?) is seeing how idiotic his views on things like Anita are, Joe just wants to be anti GG and be a feminazi because it’s popular.
ALL IT CAME DOWN TO WAS “I am not for or against GG, I am neutral +haha did my idiot fans believe that? Now to do what I was paid by Anita for+ *Proceeds to bashing Gamergate for THE REST OF THE VIDEO AND EVEN FUCKING SAYING IN THE DESCRPITION THE HORRIBLE LIES ANTI GG IS SAYING WERE TRUE AND NOT PROPOGANDA (NO SUCH WORDS FOR GG WHEN ANTI GG DID THE SAME THING)
AND WHERE DID THE FK DID ” I NOTICED ALOT WERE RIGHT WING CONSERVATIVES” WHERE THE FUCK DID THAT COME FROM? ALMOST ALL OF THEM WERE LIBERAL ATHEIST!
TOP 10 THINGS I CAN GIVE MY INFLUENCED OPINION THAT ARE ONLY WHAT I THINK WILL MAKE ME MORE POPULAR!
IN THE END IT ALL COMES DOWN TO WHAT HE SAID ” THREADS ABOUT ME”, GG ACCUSED JOE OF BEING ANTI GG (WHICH HOLY SHIT WERE THEY PROVEN RIGHT) SO HE DECIDED TO RIP THEM A NEW ASSHOLE
I’m sure after he cashes his Anti-GG paycheck HE CAN GO BACK TO BANNING PEOPLE ON HIS FORUMS FOR TALKING ABOUT NET NEUTRALITY!
umad brah cuz it s0undz liek it
If you had a message in here, you lost it entirely within your raging shitstorm, successfully identifying yourself as exactly the sort of person within the GamerGate community whose shit covers and obscures any legitimate criticisms that that community might actually have.
You guys are all fucking sad little punks arguing like the little kids you really are. It okay go ahead and show your ass. Joe is a true gamer that makes sense with everything he covers and I can hardly ever disagree with him. I consider myself a hardcore gamer myself, I play a wide range of different games and I am very picky about what I play. I could go on about what I like to play but it doesn’t matter. I just wanted to make the point that I love video games and know just a little about them, my first systems were a nintendo and a sega genesis. Most of you little cunts filling up these comments with complaints about joe were bearly popping out of your mom’s vagina when those systems came out. So congrats on making big fools of yourself in the comments section and I hope your truly upset by Joe’s words because you deserve to be pissed off for life, Oh yeah and trust me Angry Joe could give a fuck how you feel or what you say, just look at how clear he makes that at the end of his vid. Joe is right on que about the video game industry and he knows it. Keep up the good work joe. Has to be the best advocate for video games and it’s people…
Looks like you were a bit premature in declaring SWATting to be on the decline, Joe. Two stories in the last four days: One of a guy being SWATted and another of an alleged SWATter being caught. Apparently, if anything, SWATting is either unchanged from earlier in the year or, more disconcertingly, potentially on the rise.
Here is a link to another Controversy, But in 2015 from the controversial capcom.
yaaaaaay, Broteampill got rekt!
Big developers see Early Access as a way to outsource their QA and beta testing without any cost.
What is gamer gate? Please explain in simplest way possible. I’m Confused.
On it’s surface, it’s a movement against corruption in gaming journalism.
Underneath, it’s a culture war within the gaming community where one side feels threatened by inclusion of women and women’s issues.
Part of it was a backlash against a story of a female developer sleeping with a reviewer in exchange for a positive score. The other, more vicious aspect has been an anti-feminism (and at times outright misogynistic) movement as a backlash against Anita Sarkisian for her feminist rantings during slanted presentations which promote gamers and developers as a bunch of chauvinist pigs.
And since trolls can smell internet controversy like a shark smelling blood in the water, you can imagine what happened.
Gamergate is about journalism. All this other stuff is just from the people that are trolls on the internet. People miss trust people that talk about gamergate because they get treated like trolls.
If only GamerGate was about ethics in journalism. While GamerGaters attached Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, they never stopped to condemn the guy she was sleeping with. They forgot to check whether the guy she slept with ever actually reviewed her game. Despite claiming to focus on ethics in journalism, its definition of “ethics” means “what we don’t blacklist”. Despite decrying media censorship, they have a list of sites they boycott because they don’t align to the GG agenda.
Here’s an article, it’s well sourced.
Cry more Joe.
Hey Joe, can you do the reaction video to the RWBY trailers or someone in Channel Awesome since the creator of the series, Monty Oum, died a few days ago as a little tribute? Thank You!
Goodbye Monty Oum, RWBY will never be the same without you.
NNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (Darth Vader Voice)
I read the news and Rooster Teeth, and yes, the man who brought use an awesome series is gone. FUCK! GOD DAMMIT!
That sucks! RWBY is awesome and the guy who made it dies? FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKK!
I think this was one of the best gaming commentaries I’ve ever watched. It’s was well thought out, well execute. This is a fine example of why AJ is fast becoming the stand out voice for adult and mature gamers who care enough to take the necessary steps to educate themselves on the facts behind the screen of a billion dollar industry our dollars have supported since the first time I plugged in my NED and feel in love with gaming.
*NES auto fill strikes again
Thanks, Joe, for doing your job!
It was good to hear about this GamerGate controversy from you months after the height of the controversy. It is Internet drama associated with a traceable organization. I’m glad I waited until things seemed less toxic.
#10. I have one rule: treat people with kindness, compassion, love, and respect regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or any other physical factors. each individual is a mind whose complexity rivals that of the cosmos. to treat someone poorly or to demand that someone must “be like this” simply because of the slab of meat the dice of the universe happened to land them in is to reject what I believe is at the very core of what it means to be human. the ability to define one’s self. to exist as more than just an assortment of mechanical parts. we are a phenomenon of being whose complexity and grandeur exceeds our own ability to comprehend. on this world or on the most distant planet, in all of this universe and beyond into eternal infinity there is only one of each of us. that, to me, is precious.
