Almost no outlets covered the obvious scam that was Areal beyond the initial “Look at this Stalker-like game”.
They did not cover the studio’s insane response to questions.
They did not cover the studio claiming Erik Kain’s articles about them were a plot by the chinese to destroy their project.
They did not cover comments on the kickstarter going up by 3000% overnight despite the backers not increasing in any significant amount.
They did not cover the fact that in last few days, when it became obvious the project would not be funded, that several very generous individuals suddenly backed in amounts from 5-10 thousand dollars.
Now that Kickstarter has deemed the project suspicious enough to suspend, they are covering it, and would like you to kindly forget all those other things they didn’t think were important enough to talk about, instead deciding to post about.. I don’t know, memes, or articles intended to make them feel morally superior to their own audience.
Polygon, Kotaku, were not interested in these, even with the very real possibility some of their audience could be backing this scam and unaware of these things.
Polygon and Kotaku aren’t actually interested in journalism.
It’s time to shutdown 4chan.org
Join us on July 4th to celebrate our freedom and independence from racists by shutting down 4chan.
We will go to their site and as a form of protest we will overwhelm them with corrections to their awful lies and let them really know what the world thinks of them.
TW: I don’t think it’s really safe to go alone. The misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, anti-semitism, rape jokes and blatant racism will often be too much for any sane person.
Please spread the message and don’t be afraid to get involved!
Comics, stories, poetry, essays or pictures are all welcome! Every little helps!
See you on July 4th
Moviebob also said modern simpsons is just as funny as classic simpsons and jumped into the Mass Effect 3 controversy while never having played any of the games
I think it’s safe to say Moviebob is a fucking idiot.

Am I dreaming
Did I dream the things this article says
Did somebody really just say chasing the wider market makes games shittier, aloud, in 2014, that works for a major publisher
thank you based god
Ninety-two years ago, a 34-year-old Chicago man named Joseph Wozniak woke up missing one of his balls, which had been surgically removed by hoodlums.
The message to take away from this is that having all their stupid shit rightfully called clickbait is starting to bother them, so everyone needs to do it like ten times harder.
But read the article anyway (with adblock installed) for a laugh.
Fed up with real banks, a 4chan user (I know, I know) claims to have shifted his personal finances to somewhere a little closer to home: GameStop.
Why won’t Gawker just die? The world would be a much better place.
