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