Happy Holidays from the ECA!

December 23, 2008 -

Hal Halpin and the rest of the crew at the Entertainment Consumers Association want to wish GamePolitics readers a happy holiday season.

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.

I concur. I'm sick of all this PC bullshit.

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.

Neo_DrKefkawith a neutral party Moderating it. I've been waiting a long time for a GamerGate to happen but now all I want is the healing to start. Weird huh? Gamers don't need to be attacking gamers we should all be on the same side10/24/2014 - 12:39am
Neo_DrKefkaRight now from what I seen your tweet and the other guys tweet there are hard feelings. Until we start a dialogue with each other I think it will get worse before it will get better. I hope you guys work something out meet in a neutral stream10/24/2014 - 12:37am
Neo_DrKefkaThanks James. Even if a hot/hard headed person likes me thinks the public needs to sit down and discuss this together. We all might not agree right now but if the public does not start talking to each other we are not going anywhere.10/24/2014 - 12:36am
james_fudgeHey guys I had a nap because, getting old! I'll take a look.10/24/2014 - 12:01am
Matthew Wilsonjames needs to contact Totalbiscuit than10/23/2014 - 10:07pm
Neo_DrKefkaJames said earlier he went into a stream earlier informed them who he was and they didn't care. If James is trying to talk lets set something up?10/23/2014 - 9:38pm
Matthew WilsonTotalbiscuit has been trying for months, no one that is anti gg seems to want to talk with him on camera10/23/2014 - 9:20pm
Neo_DrKefkaHey James check your twitter. Check with Totalbiscuit see if you can get a round table discussion stream going see if he can get some pro gg people and you can get some gamejournopros. Both sides have been hurt, doxxed its time every1 sits down and talks10/23/2014 - 9:05pm
Matthew Wilsonthe wiiu will support up to 8 gc controllers http://www.smashbros.com/us/howto/entry10.html10/23/2014 - 7:50pm
quiknkoldmewtwo is a timed free exclusive. you can purchase him if you dont have both.10/23/2014 - 7:15pm
Neo_DrKefka@Monte A month and a half ago we had a lot of streams about solutions now all the streams are KingofPol styled rants about getting drunk. All Gamergate is about to many is for people to use the movement to jump start careers.10/23/2014 - 7:12pm
Neo_DrKefkaWhose stream where you in James?10/23/2014 - 7:02pm
Matthew Wilsonyup they are holding mewtwo hostage lol10/23/2014 - 5:59pm
MaskedPixelanteApparently Mewtwo is going to be a free download to anyone who bought both versions of Smash 4.10/23/2014 - 5:41pm
TechnogeekYou would also think that if GG gave a shit about journalistic ethics, Game Informer would have been the very first line of their boycott list.10/23/2014 - 5:32pm
MaskedPixelanteRidley confirmed for Smash Wii U... as a stage buddy like the Yellow Devil and flying man.10/23/2014 - 5:31pm
prh99Rather than trying to spin it as some sort of artistic choice, they should just say they don't want to rework the engine to either decouple the mechanics or make them work at 60fps.10/23/2014 - 5:25pm
Matthew Wilsonubisoft is made to look worse now. wiiu smash is 1080p 60fps lol10/23/2014 - 5:02pm
MonteYou would think that, if GG were really about journalistic ethics, their streams would be more conerned with Shadows of mordor(a REAL controversy involing a major publisher) than with the FALSE jounralistic controversy around Quinn10/23/2014 - 4:49pm
Andrew EisenHope so.10/23/2014 - 4:45pm
