RamZPaul once remarked that after print, music, film, and television were taken over by Cultural Marxism, normal white males retreated to gaming, only to watch an inevitable seeping of the Zeitgeist into this refuge. Despite political correctness reigning supreme among website owners and industry executives, I do think gaming is more resistant to it than is any other medium at present. Blogs and streaming video are also changing things immeasurably.
As we feared, the mods are bringing "forum justice" to the blogs and comment sections. I was just issued a warning.
Check out the latest RamZPaul video. I haven't been that peeved in a while.
Yup. I'm officially done with Moviebob. After hearing that The Game OverThinker is moving to another web outlet and will be replaced on ScrewAttack by a new show of Bob's, I got curious and checked out his "The Big Picture" series over at The Escapist. Listening to him use terms like "heteronormative" and "verbal violence" was not uniquely irritating. What killed my remaining interest in his video material, however, was this suggestion he made that refusal by gamers to obey libertine diarrhea should not be afforded any place on the internet. Unsubscribed. Good riddance.

Whatever differences of opinion you and I may hold on any topic, I think we can agree that I would never get away with comments like these in the forums: http://www.screwattack.com/news/stop-being-gay-honest-look-homophobia-ga...
Well, your least favorite member of the crew is moving on. Here's to hoping he does well in his endeavors.
The notification system is wonky. I don't receive notice of anything half the time. New blog's up!
It looks like Shaun had to take down the "worst booth babes of E3" post due to the outcry from castrated she-men. Curious, then, that the "best booth babes" post remains up as of this moment . . .
Great question on SideScrollers, by the way.
This day and age everyone wants to be seen as smart. I say it's better to sound like an idiot, but come across as down to earth, then it is to sound like an intelligent person who comes across like an elitist douchebag. I'm not saying don't be intelligent...I'm just saying, have a little humility to go along with it.
