More that I haven 't verified the actual numbers but infer from the heavy presence that they were a major sponsor. That 's a tricksy line, though. Should tweak it, hmm... r n r nEDIT: Just had a look at GaymerX 's list of sponsors. Impressively, EA was pretty far ...

I was thinking about that. The US courts have been known to take intent into account -- ie, EA 's titles are explicitly commercial, whereas a game that is using public figures for noncommercial satire or critique might indeed be covered under the first amendment. r n r nI expect ...

If you listen to the totality of the interview linked it 's only 9 minutes long , it sounds fairly clear to me, anyway, that what she 's saying is that women in the industry, currently, are in a position to effect change regarding how we attract more women into ...

Part of rape culture is, in fact, trivializing rape. When you turn rape into a punchline, it defangs it, and makes it harder for rape survivors to be taken seriously and get the support and justice they deserve. See also: today 's CAD comic that compares the Xbone 's DRM ...

FWIW, Patrick cuts off the story before the really interesting bit. r n r nWhen I answered I played PC games because yes, 3 is about me , the publisher asked if that meant I played World of Warcraft and Diner Dash -- both very heavily stigmatized as for women, ...

I can confidently say, having played it, that it 's not just another creepy sex app at all. It 's very tasteful and abstract. It just doesn 't hide that it 's meant to be a sensual experience.
