    Published at One Angry Gamer - 77 readers

    I’m sure there’s a good reason Devin Faraci from Badass Digest has more respect for ISIS than the people of #GamerGate, it’s probably because the people he’s allied with who are against the #GamerGate consumer revolt have now shown themselves to have literal ties to ISIS propaganda. A new hashtag has cropped up called #StopGamerGate.

  • #GamerGate: Mercedes-Benz Pulls Ad Support From Gawker Media

    One Angry Gamer - - 57 readers - One of the benefits of #GamerGate is seeing how a collective group of people from all walks of life can come together for a common goal.

  • Fatal Frame: Nuregarasu no Miko - review

    …A portion of a Kotaku review... Fatal Frame V is a solid addition to the Fatal Frame series. It has a good little survival horror story and more than a few good scares spread throughout.
