Comments on: The Nitpixels Podcast Episode 39: I have no idea how to pronounce Bakhtanians http://www.nitpixels.com/2012/02/29/the-nitpixels-podcast-episode-39-i-have-no-idea-how-to-pronounce-bakhtanians/ Wherein we talk too much about video games Wed, 24 Jul 2013 02:07:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8 By: Lindsey Liberto http://www.nitpixels.com/2012/02/29/the-nitpixels-podcast-episode-39-i-have-no-idea-how-to-pronounce-bakhtanians/#comment-932 Wed, 28 Mar 2012 02:02:00 +0000 http://www.nitpixels.com/?p=274#comment-932 Hey guys.

Been enjoying the show for the past year or so, but this episode is what finally got me to stop by and take the time to leave a comment.

I just wanted to thank you for being so frank and actually discussing rape culture. It is so, so frustrating to try and explain what it is again and again to my fellow (male) gamers and have them react defensively. So it was more than refreshing to hear the subject being taken seriously on your show, and to know that women gamers aren’t alone in our struggle for equality in the gaming community. Just one more reason why Nitpixels is by far my favorite gaming podcast.

I don’t like it when they try to hard sell it, which is what it sounds like what happened to Mat M.  I definitely don’t see it as a scam, in truth.  If you do, don’t pre-order.  I definitely will continue it.  And if it makes you feel better I usually pre-order from amazon or steam.  

With respect to sexual harassment, I find it odd.  My employer mandates anti harassment training each year.  I’m surprised that if it is a professional business that they don’t either. In any event, the best way to hit them is in the pocketbook.  Don’t buy from them or their sponsors.  If Capcom and IGN are sponsoring that crap, tell them you won’t stand for it.  I might even go so far to watch what ads are around it, and not buy from them, but their competitors.  And then send in letters with receipts saying “guys, if you didn’t support harassment, this could be your money. ”  

Ah, Baldur’s Gate. I was excited until I remembered Pools of Radiance.  So, I don’t really want a BG3. But we’ll see.  I am thinking now about hitting GOG and playing BG… I wonder if there’s a remake in NWN, I know there’s an Icewind Dale, not sure about BG…

Then Wrath came out and we figured “well, maybe we’ll try again.”  We called the store in the morning and they said “Oh, no, we’re not taking preorders for the CE for that yet.” I called back a couple of hours later and they had “stopped” taking preorders for the CE.  I mean, seriously?  Arg!

Anyway, pre-orders from EB/Gamestop are dumb.
