Depression Quest released on February 2013, the home page states that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to both Hotline and IFred.

 

She has (very) recently removed IFred from her site.

Yeah I had a feeling that Quinn not donating allegation was a bit flaky, here's her proof that she actually did donate to NSHL.

Wasn't really comfortable talking about it honestly, since at this point Quinn is irrelevant to whatever corruption is in the game industry as a whole. Probably better to just not bring her up from now on.

 

I'd say the same about Sarkeesian, but at least with that last thing, it goes to show that there were journalists that simply took her word for it instead of actually researching the facts. Y'know, like journalists.

 

Speaking of which, the Telegraph published a big anti-gamergate article recently, and of course people called bullshit. The author challenged people to prove why it was bullshit, and someone went ahead and did it.

Apparently 4chan's been taken over and has been censoring things left and right recently. m00t seems to have fucked off for one reason or another. It's at the point where 4channers are trying to invade 4chan in the same way they do other sites just to keep discussion alive. The fucking feedback link on the front page has even been removed entirely.

 

It is a dark time.

 

Also right after that Breitbart article came out, Kotaku released this:

 

10639470_1481661308769186_35947222512534

 

Yes, a bomb threat that happened 6 months ago. Good timing.

Interview with that anonymous Microsoft dev from a few pages back, pretty interesting:

Edit: Also someone sent the author of the Breitbart article/leak 90 rolls of toilet paper as an insult... or something.

I think whether or not that's actually an insult depends on whether it's 1 ply or not.

People who follow the Mighty No.9 Twitter page and who support gamergate are getting blocked from following that Twitter page.

 

http://www.reddit.com/r/KotakuInAction/comments/2h05k6/contributors_to_mighty_no_9s_kickstarter_who/

 

Note that it's probably not Inafune or anyone, but Dina Karam, the community manager who was hired awhile back for the game. i.e The one who assumed she was on the design team and wanted to make Beck female. And since she's the only community manager for English speakers, no one is getting responses back about getting blocked yet.
