black mantaVox Day has openly stated his support of GG many times. And both they and the Sad Puppies essentially want the same things (i.e. purging video games/science fiction of SJWs whom they believe are threatening the genre.)06/30/2015 - 12:08am
Goth_SkunkHowever, The notion that GamerGate and Sad Puppies are the same perpetrators is preposterous.06/29/2015 - 11:24pm
Goth_SkunkIdeologically. Additionally, libertarians can be both left and right leaning, and as Allum Bokhari has shown, people supporting GamerGate overwhelmingly tend to lean left-of-center politically.06/29/2015 - 11:18pm
black mantaAlso, the quote from Vox Day there (as well as an advertisement for his books) just tells me all I need to know. And that GG and the Sad Puppies are connected.06/29/2015 - 10:49pm
black mantaIt is still a fringe group. If it is Libertarian (and i can see its Libertarian appeal) it leans more to the right side of it.06/29/2015 - 10:48pm

MattsworknameGoth, add vox, polygon, and most print media to that list for me. Also, add msnbc to that list, as long as they have people like shults, matthews, sharpton, hayes and so forth, will not watch06/29/2015 - 7:33pm
Goth_SkunkThat's fair, I treat every article from 'The Mary Sue' in the exact same manner. As well as Polygon, Kotaku, and Gamasutra, to name a few others.06/29/2015 - 7:17pm

ZippyDSMleeI wish they would revive Shining Force as a decent Warcraft clone with TB option...06/29/2015 - 4:15pm
ZippyDSMleeFrom my genisis days the only other TBS I enjoyed was Sorcerers Kingdom and Warsong The only down side to Shining Force as a seriers they took out towns on the Sega CD ports and later games....06/29/2015 - 4:13pm
ZippyDSMleeE. Zachary Knight: Shining Force is awesome the aera damage done by mages,ect really make it shine. I miss that in ZOE:Fist of mars where there is no aera damage but you have a neat real time targeting system.06/29/2015 - 4:11pm
Goth_SkunkShaved my head for the first of many times in my life today. I refuse to bear a receding hairline: It's all-or-nothing for me with regards to my hair loss.06/29/2015 - 3:52pm
james_fudgeEZK: great game06/29/2015 - 2:51pm
E. Zachary KnightBack to my initial question, I started playing Shining Force 1. So far a pretty cool tactical RPG. I am looking forward to playing more.06/29/2015 - 1:27pm
