  • #GamerGate: ISIS Spambot Offers Unlikely Support To #StopGamerGate Hashtag

    Published at One Angry Gamer - 78 readers

  • #GamerGate: Shadow Of Mordor Brand Deal Sees Plaid Social, Warner Bros On Lockdown

    One Angry Gamer - - 30 readers - A lot of strawman arguments have been made that #GamerGate hasn’t been putting forth the appropriate effort in “exposing corruption” from the larger AAA studios; that the movement is steeped in “misogyny” and no one is trying to root out the evils of the industry. Nevertheless, the excuse looks awfully silly as people begin to dig into the brand deals surrounding Shadow of Mordo ...
