Happy Holidays from the ECA!

It has been a great 2008 for the ECA and its gamer-members. 2009 will be even better!

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Bah, ECA.  Humbug!

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

 Happy holidays to one and all

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Err why the full disclosure part? Fair enough on most news stories involving the ECA but "Here's a christmas card" would be hard for even jack thompson to twist into something other than a christmas card.

 

Well twist convincingly anyway

 

Well now that I think of it he'd have a hard time convincing me that grass is green...

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

I've always read the full disclosure thing as an FU to those that would try to twist or spin something out of it, like Jack... but not limited to him.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Happy holidays to the ECA. I hope that I will be a member soon... first I need to get some IP's out there...

Yes I have a WIP. Just wait and see.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Merry Christmas everyone!

My girl Katy's on there (bottom row, third from left).  Yay! ^_^

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Ugh, I can't stand her.  Talk about total overexposure for someone who's not even that talented.

Couldn't have said the bottom row on the right? Not like there are any other girls on there or anyone to the right of her.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

At the risk of sounding like an ingrate . . . ain't nothing worse than getting a Christmas card with no money in it.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

IF you guys want to know the positions and names of those in this card (and to see what Dennis looks like) here is the link:

It seems that Dennis is not on this card for some reason. Probably because he not technically part of the ECA management team.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

I, for one, am really curious what the average working day at the ECA is like. Looking at that picture, first thought that went through my head was...."....What do these people do again?" 

Oh well.   I prefer not to get wrapped up in denominational holidays anyway.  It's easier to just say, "Merry, (as good an excuse to get drunk as any) day."

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Fuck that.

Merry Christmas and happy Hannukah.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Me three!  If it's Christmas in your faith, you say Merry Christmas to everyone, if you're Jewish you say Happy Hannukah to everyone, if you're Moslem you say whatever the Moslems say at this time of year and if you're an atheist you say... we'' I've no idea - but anyway you say it.  I don't see why anyone needs to get offended by the fact that different people have different customs.  Diversity is a GOOD thing.

So Merry Christmas everyone!

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Atheists tend to use "happy holidays" unless they're the militant type. So you think they should have put however many slogans anybody in the ECA might use on the card? That could get abit cluttered. Happy Holidays gets the point across with minimal objection from everybody but the LCDs.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Nice pic!

*tries to find Dennis in the pic*

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

That's what I think it is, but I only saw his picture only once.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Are you sure? If that is him, they are using a different photo from his profile photo on the team ECA page. Everyone else is a cut out of their profile photo.

It's hard to tell with the low resolution of the displayed graphic.

Andrew EisenI'm still trying to figure out where anyone is getting the idea violent content or lousy representation of women and minorities shouldn't exist or be promoted.06/30/2015 - 9:25am
james_fudgeWell, members of GP first, members of GG second, I always say.06/30/2015 - 9:06am
black mantaConsidering it's only you and Mattsworkname that have been carrying the banner for it here, that pretty much testifies to how little influence they have. Most everyone else here couldn't care less.06/30/2015 - 8:54am
black mantaAgain GG is more like Occupy Wall Street than the Tea Party movement. They had their moment, but they fizzled out. And now exist more as a nebulous thing spouting ideas. They haven't achieved anything meaningful.06/30/2015 - 8:52am
black mantaAs sincere as your beliefs may be, the movement is still rife with bigots and misogynists.06/30/2015 - 8:51am
black mantaI'm sure you're heart's in the right place, Goth. But it doesn't excuse the behavior of GG's members towards the people they don't like.06/30/2015 - 8:50am
MattsworknameWow goth, write a novel why dont cha. Seriously I know you have a passion for this stuff, but wow, thats kinda overkill.06/30/2015 - 8:46am

Infophile13 shouts in total by Goth in a row. I think I'm to blame here. If I'd read the Breitbart link when he'd posted it, maybe he wouldn't have felt the need to say everything here.06/30/2015 - 8:27am
E. Zachary KnightI go away for one night and Goth writes his Gamergate manifesto in the shoutbox.06/30/2015 - 8:15am
james_fudgeI blame Andrew for this.06/30/2015 - 8:10am
Goth_SkunkAnd at long last, I think I'm finally done.06/30/2015 - 3:08am
Goth_SkunkAnd if those progressive games fail to make any headway in the market, don't blame gamer culture for not being cultured enough to appreciate the product. Own up to the fact that the game either sucks, is not interesting, or both.06/30/2015 - 3:06am
Goth_Skunknor suggest that the games industry and culture is rife with toxicity because of it and needs to change for the good of the medium. There is room in the market for progressive games to co-exist with games like Hatred, not replace them outright.06/30/2015 - 3:04am
Goth_SkunkAnd if the overly violent content of most AAA games or the perceived mistreatment of women in such games bothers one, by all means criticize it, but do not under any circumstances suggest that it such content shouldn't exist or be promoted,06/30/2015 - 3:02am
Goth_SkunkGames, for the most part, let you do this! You can be the man or woman you're not. You can escape reality and immerse yourself in the experience. And that's wonderful! I play as female characters all the time in games I play, when the option is available.06/30/2015 - 2:59am
Goth_SkunkA choice that nature denied transgender people at birth! People don't undergo gender reassignment because they want to be transgender; they undergo gender reassignment because they want to be the gender they identify with!06/30/2015 - 2:52am
Goth_SkunkBut I think it gets silly when people start asking for the ability to play as a transgender protagonist. I mean, why would one do that? One usually has the option to create a character that's either a man or a woman, gay or straight. You have the choice!06/30/2015 - 2:50am
Goth_Skunkfirst two games, a move which was ultimately corrected in the 3rd game. By extension, Dragon Age has always had the option, and good on it!06/30/2015 - 2:45am
Goth_SkunkBut it certainly is good to see developers entertain the allowance of allowing the player to develop their protagonist to be homosexual if they want. The Mass Effect series was criticized rightly for not allowing a male homosexual romance plot in the06/30/2015 - 2:44am
