I’m a girl going into my Junior year of Game Design and by God am I mad as hell that I ever thought this abusive, manipulative harpy was an innocent victim. I hope we run her out of our community on a rail.

Hey who were you on mgo2 ?

PSN: Theewok

I was a Flying Squirrel most of the time, got FoxHound rank in MGO1 and 2 a couple times. Favorite strategy was suprising people with the SAIGA12, knocking them over, and firing when their falling animation was done. 2 hit kill.

I was also excellent with the MP5SSD.

I am seeing something on my dash about a woman named Zoe Quinn. Seriously, she's all over the place. Some people are talking shit about her and other people defend her? Who is she? What has she done? What's going on?

dontneedfeminism:

I’ll tell you what I know, in tl;dr format:

>Group starts contest for women who want to make games
>Winners of first contest get free concept art
>Concept art would get spread on social media
>most popular concept would get made into game
>Winner would get 8% royalties, all other profits would go to charity

Queue Zoe Quinn’s entrance

>Zoe Quinn says that the contest is “oppressive”
>Sends hate tweets to the contest holders
>Gets at least one of them doxxed
>Gets her “gaming journalist” friends to write bad articles about the contest
>Zoe Quinn makes her own “game”
>Essentially not a game at all
>It’s a game about Depression
>People criticize her portrayal of depression
>She says she’s being harassed
>Says she’s being trolled/harassed by wizardchan (an imageboard dedicated to basically nothing but Disney)
>More “gaming journalists” write articles for her
>Same “journalists” give positive reviews for her game
>Her game somehow gets through Steam Greenlight

Queue Zoe Quinn’s (ex)boyfriend

>Ex-bf makes a blog
>blog is literally nothing but one post
>Explains a bunch of horrible shit she did relationship-wise
>Turns out she cheated on him
>with like 5 people
>one of whom was married
>oh, and they were all those “gaming journalists” giving her good reviews and defending her
>Fancy that

>Somebody makes a video criticizing Zoe Quinn and her behavior
>She gets it taken down for copyright claims
>Video used nothing but a still image
>A still image that was all over the internet already
>In other words the copyright claim was bullshit

>Then InternetAristocrat makes a video, released yesterday, and shit has proceeded to continue blowing up since then.

There ya go anon, hope that helped. Just know that anyone attempting to defend her is nothing but a white knight. She is indefensible, much like Anita Sarkeesian.

Zoe Quinn’s Kotaku Staff Cheating Scandal (and how she sets back women in gaming)

kr-studios:

kc-vidya-rants:

As many of you now know, controversial Depression Quest developer Zoe Quinn has recently been outed for cheating on her boyfriend with five other guys, including her married boss Joshua Boggs: creator of FRAMED, Robin Arnott, and even Kotaku Writer Nathon Grayson, who vehemently defended her online and pushed to have her game reviewed favorably. 

For those looking for the first-hand account of this by her ex, please read http://thezoepost.wordpress.com/ 

Here is an imgur mirror and a pastebin mirror (part 2: the TL;DR) in case that blog ever gets taken down.

Apparently, as evidenced by this image in the WordPress blog, Boggs’ wife (at the time of writing) still has no idea about the affair:

image

However, her infidelity itself is not the problem, I’m afraid: it’s the fact that after several controversial moves including using Robin William’s suicide to market her game and lying about being harassed over Wizardchan, she’s essentially been outed for sleeping with staff of a major gaming news outlet in exchange for favorable press and promotion. Not only does this expose Kotaku’s corruption as a news site, but sets back women in the video game industry by tarnishing her own image and conveying the idea that women can only get anywhere in the gaming industry by lying or sleeping their way up to the top. 

Another bad point about this is that she essentially lied about who she is to her fans, her ex, and the press alike. This is a woman who said she had principles about sex - that someone cheating on someone else means the sex with their actual partner IS NOT CONSENSUAL. All while fucking around the Indie dev scene with at least 5 people (3 we know of, 2 speculated). Another Facebook log from the WordPress blog solidifies that point:

image

Why does she go around making this psuedo-feminist point that “men are stupid and dangerous to be naked around” while using the men of Kotaku to get to where she is today? It’s hypocritical. 

I’m disappointed that no major news outlet will cover this story, despite it not being about her personal life, but tackling a much bigger issue: corruption in the video game journalism industry and the indie game development scene. If this spreads, Kotaku will lose all credibility as a news site (as if they hadn’t already) because they’re literally in bed with certain game developers for good reviews. Zoe Quinn does not deserve to be in the indie game dev scene and creates a negative image for all current and future female game devs with her actions. Thanks, Zoe, for enforcing the idea what women can’t get anywhere in the game dev industry unless they fuck journalists for good reviews. 

Kotaku never had credibility. Regardless, I’m amazed she’d do this. She’s lost my respect, not just for trading sex for review scores, but for sleeping around on her boyfriend.

This is disgusting. she is inadvertently hurting other women in the industry, not only now, but in the future as well.

Canceled Metal Gear remake had David Hayter involved

metalgearmoments:

You guys remember that Metal Gear remake Dev Team Outer Heaven were allowed to go forward by Konami, but then it got canceled afterwards? 

So, they got David Hayter for Solid Snake AND Big Boss. They made a work-in-progress trailer with Hayter’s voice acting, some unfinished animations and remastered scenarios.

It looks awesome doesn’t it?!

According to the developers, ”The project has been shut down by Konami, Seems that they all couldn’t agree on the project going ahead.”
