    #GamerGate Returns After Xbox used the trailer 'The Last Night' during E3 to showcase the power of 'indies'!

    The Last Night was called a 'E3 Show Stealer', but that news quickly changed when E3 viewers noticed that its co-creator, Tim Soret, was long-time Gamergate supporter.

    The Internet Firestorm after Microsoft's E3 Presser was over got so bad, the developer was forced to issue an apology during the PC Gaming show the next day, but will that be enough to save this great indie game from having sales, or will it be doomed now forever.
    So what do you think, should a video game be judged on its graphics and style, or by the developer's political views of the real world.

      The outrage this guy's old tweets brought out are proof enough of the kind of people you shouldn't be trying to appease. It doesn't matter if his opinions changed over the years, the fact that he had them in the first place means these people will crucify him and his game. It was foolish to try to appease their anger because trying to appease them does nothing, they already smell blood and boy are they in a frenzy to attack. They just can't wait. He betrayed the messages he wanted to portray to appease those who cannot be appeased. But if any good came of it, it's that once again you see the masks come off. The feminists on one hand claim to want equality, but when faced with a game espousing actual equality, they get mad. Equality is the last thing they want, and they like having corruption in journalism. That's why they put anybody calling for ethics and honesty in gaming journalists in the same camp as gamergate and they called anybody even remotely associated with the name things suchs as sexists. I generally stay away from groups and names because it becomes more difficult to represent yourself, and I noticed a lot of people doing this back then, such as Totalbiscuit. I saw how they treated him when he refused to outright condemn everything they stood for, so much so that they wished him and many others death. They were such hateful people. So I say, don't appease them. You can only hurt yourself by doing so. If standing up for equality draws their ire, then let their outrage flow, because they hurt themselves more by showing their hatred and letting their masks come off, and by appeasing them you don't calm their fury, you just weaken your stance, heck, you end up looking like them and may fall with them when the time comes.

      If he still wants to make money on his game, he should go after the other half / non-crazed people in his potential audience. If the game's good, it will speak for and sell itself.

      And now a Ubisoft employee is supporting PIRATING the game if you like it, instead of breaking the boycott:
