    This kind of shit is seriously not funny. Feels to me like someone saying "niggers..." or whatever of that sort; just an extremely insulting personal attack and a generalization without any constructive point.

    What's said is, in the end, Bioshock will probably end up being a better Fallout 3 than...Fallout 3.

    So if a black guy had written the original article, and Dourvas had said "black people...", it still would've been funny to you guys?

    Because "it's a joke"?


    edit: Now of course women aren't exactly a minority group but they're still getting all kinds of unneeded shit just because they're women. (and have been getting shit throughout the history) I just had to write this to make sure my point wasn't attacked in this regard. (although I'm interested to hear if you have any other counter-points except for 'lol relax')

    No, because casual sexism will always be funny and racism never was. Like "Whats wrong do you have sand in your vagina?" see.

    Wash the sand out of your vagina missy. Keep getting upset like this and you're going to break a nail!

    He actually thinks he'd have gotten less hate as a guy?

    He must not be familiar with the Fallout 3 Intertards war.

    well, there is a difference between saying "you're dumb, do some research" and saying "you're a woman, you don't know shit about games". I think the latter hits a bit harder.

    I never understood the beauty of picking on those that you consider weak. especially when it's a woman. women are wonderful and we should all be thankful there are actually women as nerdy as any of us.

    Sure, but the hate is still there.

    Issues like these ignore the fact that the Heroine Shiek woman is an incompetent journalist who failed to do even the most basic research before writing her piece. I really don't care if you're woman or man at that point, you're going to get internet-burn and you'll have deserved it. Feminism certainly shouldn't mean sheltering people that suck at their job.

    Will Brother None ever be wrong?

    Well there was that one time.

    *Dreamy waves sequence*

    BN: communism will work!

    GM: Uhh ok.

    80 years later.

    BN: My bad.

    Heh. And I guess it wouldn't have been so bad if the hate wasn't from Fallout fans. Or something.

    People are forgeting that a Vault Boy was made for the original Fallouts, not for FO3 by Bethesda. Whatever FO3 will turn out, th Vault Boy was born before FO3. And whatever Beth will do, Vault Boy will be always a child of the first Fallout.
