Regardless if this is the case; I feel it's safe to say that in the most absolute lowest common denominator practice possible: woman on gaming websites (regardless of credentials) are being hired and actively used as something to be leered at.

Perhaps it's gaming culture's way of being more inclusive. I happen to know a lot of very attractive women because I am friends with many photographers throughout the US and Europe. I meet many women you wouldn't think fit the stereotype for gamer. Hell, some of them don't look the stereotype for anything because a very attractive woman is intimidating to men in real-life social settings.

The six-foot tall slender busty goddess-like woman will be the least chatted up at any given soiree. It's a fact. Lots of women don't feel like anything other than makeup and lingerie is catered to them at all. So, oddly enough, what you see as something being "sexed up" is just a welcome friendly face to others.

I just wanted to say that sex is awesome and we shouldn't shame it in any way. Society doesn't need less sex, it needs more sex. Straight, homosexual, trans or whatever. What is this, the 1400's? We really should be over social mores that were inflicted on society back when people drank from lead glass.

It's 2014, ffs. Who are we to judge someones gaming credibility based on the fact they are "too attractive"? That is utter madness.

Thread was black-bagged. At least that much is obvious.

This thread was locked for no reason given and the article was dated from yesterday. In fact, some newbie member with a sub-500 post count posted another article on the same thing (which, was locked for the correct reason).

It just seems like someone locked my thread because they didn't like it. That seems really really suspect. When some of the big XBox fanboys said "We already knew this" they must have looked at the date and decided that was some kind of excuse (spoiler alert: No, this is new news) but not every country follows the mm/dd/yyyy format when posting dates and may use the dd/mm/yyyy format which was the case for the article I posted. Either the moderator who locked the thread didn't use due diligence on this fact and took their word for it, or they didn't like the news either and abused their authority.

Thank you very much. Will do.

Basically, I'm not sure if it's harrassment or borderline terroristic threat, but someone created an alt and really came unglued. Is there a moderator I can forward this to? Any way to see who the actual user is? If someone sent me a letter in the mail like this, I would call the police.

Thank you for your consideration.

Looking at the bigger picture, it would seem that Microsoft does not feel confident that it will be able to set up the kind of content delivery that they wanted to do this generation or with the XBox.

On one hand, it's easy to say "Yeah, I won't miss this" but you have to consider that the vision for what Microsoft can potentially do with the XBox division is eroding VERY rapidly. All signs point to this thing getting Zune'd.

I didn't see all this doom and gloom after the bad start by Sony last gen. Do you really want MS to leave Consoles?

Yep. Make room for the next guy. Stick to PC gaming and, for the love of all that is holy, rebuild Ensemble. XBox had a lot of promise, what they made of it with the XBone reveal was every Sony fanboys wettest dream. They were everything people said they were all along.

I honestly wonder if one day, the whole industry will just be every publisher asking for subscription fees in the wee hopes they decide to make new games we want to play. *shudders*

Seriously, were things so bad when we bought game discs and took them home to play them? The industry is bigger than Hollywood. Yet, still, they persist on squeezing more money out of the gamer.

That's the nature of capitalism grasshopper

Yes, and it is a cyclically self-imploding one at that. Keynes, Bulls and Bears, or all that jazz. Current business theory is for crash dummies, imho. Sustaining long-term profitablity to avoid fluctuation is the much MUCH better route. You could say I'm an Austrian.
