A game that Holowka helped design is the featured article on Wikipedia today.

Here is an album from 2007 where they celebrate this game:
Alec is present as from page 2, wearing some shells. Back then it seemed like just a normal dude having fun.

There aren't many women in gaming, and most are whales, so soys take what they can get.
Dudes are also generally raised these days being told it's vital for their romantic partners to share their interests and hobbies. From personal experience I've come to the conclusion that that's bullshit. Get yourself a girl who will cook for you and is into makeup and clothes and other stereotypical girlie shit. You can support each other's hobbies without being into the same things.

The "nerd girl" scene, whether it's video games, comic books, DnD, whatever is full of predatory grifter women, mentally unstable women, and massively egocentric women who are used to being a big fish in a small pond, and most of them have no career or domestic skills whatsoever. And the women who aren't like that are taken. Or fat, which if you're into that more power to you, just keep in mind that fat chicks can also fit in the above categories of awful.

In short, your manic pixie dreamgirl fantasy is fake and gay. Hollywood lied to you. Get your head out of your ass and look at things realistically before you end up like Holowka, betas. /rant

I wanted to go backwards in thread and find that quote from Chelsea about "making the call-out to Alec because she was tired of seeing his name in gamedev tools still(Yarn) and thinking about his abuse" and couldn't find it easily. Decided to revisit two other things instead:

• Alec's twitter still exists and is still protected, 3 months later. Would love to know who he was friends with and what the final tweets were. It's stuck in that special kind of limbo where no one is messing with it right now, and it could still be combed through for anyone who was lucky enough to have access back then.

• recognized this kiss-ass from before:
Looks like that person nuked like 28,000 tweets in May https://socialblade.com/twitter/user/dannybstyle

No tweets remaining that mention Alec, no tweets towards Chelsea until August.

Looks like it is one of her enablers based on remaining mentions of the two accounts: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&q=dannybstyle unburntwitch&src=typd

Can't tell if he kept talking to Alec despite supposedly knowing, but the two were at least tagged together frequently. https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&q=dannybstyle infinite_ammo&src=typd
Danny Baronowski, extremely talented musician behind the Crypt of the Necrodancer/Cadence of Hyrule rhythm games/ soundtracks. Not only are they both banging soundtracks, they're cleverly composed to add/remove resonant accompaniments depending on how well you're playing, so they're much more alive.

He's definitely an indie darling and blows Toby Fox & Alec both out of the water musically in my humble opinion. Knowing that they were twitter buddies for a long time explains why Chelsea was featured prominently in one of the Crypt of the Necrodancer's promo videos(playing it on a DDR pad rigged as a controller for it, poorly, at a convention) that you can still see on youtube/Steam store page. Nothing truly new or developing, just a little extra info for context and relationships. So much of the twitter ass-kissing was from real nobodies, it's interesting to realize this was actually somebody. Also would be interesting to see if it turns out Danny raped and killed a string of women behind an Arby's® when he's no longer useful to the indie women a few years down the road.

Anyone involved in the games industry with an opinion on Zoe Quinn in either direction (though especially if that opinion is favorable, for obvious reasons) should be discounted out of hand when they express said opinion. The games industry is incredibly incestuous and cancerous with patronage and cronyism. This would be marginally fine if it were also a meritocracy, as then it would at least be on par with nearly every other big business in the West. I only single out the West because I'm ignorant as to how things operate in places like Moonland. But with things as they are you can't trust anyone who makes games, or writes about games, when they make claims like "Zoe is one of the best people I know" because of the parasitism involved between the two fields. Very few games or developers can generate and sustain the level of hype machine expected by shareholders nowadays. Journalism is tied to and implicit in things like Zoe Quinn persisting, which is sad in her case in particular because such a connection is what touched off Gamergate to start with before in ballooned into the caricature it eventually became and getting blamed for everything from mass shootings to the election of a United States president.

If a Games Person is talking about the industry in any capacity other than the games themselves you should just mock them publicly and tell them to choke on their opinions, and even then you should at least read things with a critical eye.

I can't wait until Daddy Musk bankrolls some gadget that lets me beam pornography directly into my occipital lobe so I can finally leave this cesspool of a hobby behind. I'm sick to death of it no longer being about socially awkward misanthropes who coded cool things in their basements and just want people to play them.

Yeah well fuck him for pulling his soundtrack from the re-release of Super Meat Boy for PSN.

Zoe's abortion comic is out today. Just got done reading it and it was mostly inoffensive. Very bland and perfunctory, no egregious quirkiness or humor. Although some of it does seem a little autobiographical and projection-y.

It's an event book so I guess at least half of it was written for her in order to make sure the characters are where they need to be for the Judge Death Joker crossover finale.
And that's probably a good thing.

And because I've gone back into a place of sanity, I've also written something like this about the western anime convention community out in the Weeb Wars main thread. To summarize, anime convention culture is shit out west right now because it is full of golddiggers, grifters, and exploitative whores who sail on a vast majority fandom and spectator driven body of an audience. I know that making your own creative works demands talent, dedication, and a career effort to make, but that is one of many major reasons why Japan is capable of having its shit kept together unlike out in the USA: because there is a body of homegrown creators who are pushing shit out and a impetuous of respect that comes with it.

With video games however, this is both a similar and yet still opposite end scenario we have, and I can tie this down to a few things. I'm not going to lie either, video game development attracts more "grounded" yet vindictive and self absorbed cynical fucks who hope to use their careers and their fruits of labor to throw their weight around. I don't know what the fuck makes them out to be like this, but I am going to pin the blame on them never living down how many wedgies and insults they got in high school and at home, and then becoming so asshurt at how society "betrays" them to where they pick on and lash out at other crowds "lower" than them to have some emotional crutch to stand on before they hope to Hollywood Movie Success TM their way to vindication and stardom with their star video game like it's a fucking late 90s romance comedy. I do think society has its fair share of the shit sandwich to eat as it gets passed around, but these kinds of devs have proven to have gotten way the fuck out of hand and are no better people than what entitled vindication drives them to act out of. And then when it comes to the shit dev women? Oh lawdy are the women scorned and spoiled to shit. These were the kind of skunts who shittalked other bratty shit girls or shittalked anyone who was seemingly better than them in looks or attracting the guys out of nothing but outright jealousy and self absorbed pride back in high school, and never learned or were belted enough to knock this shit off.

I'm even going to push this shit in further with this psychological dissection. Shit game devs are also atheists. Not anything sane, I'm talking neckbeard fedora tipping ponyfucking Christianity mocking zealot atheism. These guys are so "smart" but use that as an excuse to fling shit and act however they want without seeming moral repercussions. I still have a hate boner for religious cults and zealots, but cults and zealots are just what these fuckers are. They think that because they study computer science and coding they know the secrets of the universe and become exceptional beyond their britches. In fact, did I just find the origins of galaxy braining? And we all know how smartassing eventually festers into self entitled moral purism and SJW faggotry and male feminist penis mutilation initiation, take a look at SomethingAwful.

And how do I know this? I used to be an amatuer game dev myself, until I decided to put this on hold. A lot of small fish game devs before GamerGate festered with a ton of this unprofessional shit, and boy, was I glad to have dodged a nuke zone down the line. A lot of people with an interest in video games, be it as fans and spectators or developers, have a lot of emotional baggage of being picked on and having no respect, but it takes being a bigger man to actually be someone and gaining respect, including where to find it and to not be a self entitled self victimizing self pitying and projecting dipshit, and unfortunately, they infest the upper echelons as we speak like the days before the French Revolution.
