  1. Siliconera and Gematsu are great game focused sites. Joystiq was also excellent until AOL snubbed 'em out. I stopped reading Kot*ku five years ago when it just stopped caring about quality content. Most other sites, too. Want to take power and influence from terribly run sites? Don't click on 'em.
    Your discussion of GG reminded me of a short discussion I had on Twitter a couple days ago. I avoided the whole thing for so long, but I hated how when the Vivian cosplayer got harassed and it was hand-waved as, "Well, she asked for it!"
    If there's one thing I got from this GG fiasco it's that no matter what "side" there is it's occupied by jerks!

    Good show, chaps! Glad to hear Jon again after a year of absence.

    1. There will always be jerks everywhere, all the time.

  2. I've been listening to yer show for a few months now, but was really taken aback by this (apparently right-wing) third host you had on. Dude's first response to Greg mentioning Ferguson etc was something like "oh yeah those terrible protesters!!" or whatever, and the other two hosts (appropriately) were like "uhh...actually how about not, yknow, shooting 12 year olds..."

    Dude THEN comes out here as a straight up #GamerGate retard who loves KotakuInAction, while the other hosts took more neutral nuanced stances.

    Other than THAT I've been enjoying yr show ^_^

  3. Looks like @stringedsonata's Anime Central panel on Oda Nobunaga is immediately after and in the same room as my panel on åge ("Rumbling Hearts to Total Eclipse"). Coolness.

    When are you coming out for ACen, @thedigitalbug?

  4. I kind of did a double-take in the upcoming releases section when you mentioned "Sanoba Witch"… I randomly grabbed a big-ass manga anthology, Comic Alive last month in Japantown, and the scene you describe is in that issue, under the title "Sabbat of the Witch". I sent it to you guys on Twitter — — although what you call "masturbation", I would call "a special and treasured moment with Table-kun."

    Also, @stringedsonata-sempai noticed me!

    1. I am sure table-kun is her very important companion.
