>Last year, a woman named Karissa made accusations against me, and so did her close friend, Kelly. The accusations were surprising. They concerned our first meeting almost 9 years ago and they were untrue. I spent the last year trying to persuade myself these acts were done out of a misguided sense of self-righteousness. I have tried to correct the record, allow voices to be heard, but in keeping silent, I was wrong. The motivation for these attacks seemed simple, Karissa and Kelly were angry about a bad break up I had had with their friend Jackie nearly 7 years ago. Jackie was a woman Karissa had encouraged me to hit on at a bar at the same convention a year after Karissa and I first met. It is an unusual thing for someone to do to a friend with someone they believe to be a ‘sexual predator.’ Jackie and I saw each other for a year. We were not dating, we were not boyfriend/girlfriend. We stopped seeing each other 7 years ago. I had to break it off, in no small part to Karissa continually, angrily inserting herself into our relationship — which Jackie encouraged.
>I do not know why Karissa waited so long with these accusations. She seemed to be triggered by the posting of an IGN video interview involving me. To be clear, I did not want to do this video interview. I was told by the PR Evolve liaison at the time IGN ‘insisted.’ IGN’s handling of the interview (cutting out my female lead at the time) seemed to confirm it. This was their decision, I had no involvement in it, and their handling of it disgusted me. But it was not the content Karissa seemed angered by, it was my presence. Whether it was that I still had a job in the industry or believed I did not deserve the ‘attention,’ I do not know. I certainly didn’t want the attention. Shortly after, Karissa made her accusations. Her close friend Kelly then supported her with brand new claims purposely worded to be hard (but not impossible) to disprove.
>As I said at the time, I believed the breakup with their friend Jackie motivated their attacks. Karissa and Kelly even said as much. For those of you that asked questions about these accusations — thank you. For those who offered support — thank you. For those of you willing to listen before rushing to judgment — thank you. A long list of digital evidence and witness testimony has been compiled over the past year. With that in hand, I filed a formal response last week, not to silence Karissa and Kelly, but to encourage them to speak more. Other women came forward, but addressing them is easier done by first challenging Karissa’s statements. This is because Karissa’s claims were, unfortunately, echoed by others as truth, which allowed these falsehoods to spread and seem to be true via repetition. Whether this was done out of malice or ignorance doesn’t matter. They are untrue.
>When Karissa’s claims are addressed in court, they will put these other claims in a much different light. Other parts of these stories that weren’t parroted by others are easy to prove false with a little research… if even a little research had been done. None of the press did any such research I’m aware of, even for the easiest confirmations. For example, a woman, Christy Dena, claimed we shared a night together in 2013 when I wasn’t even on the same continent. For now, my focus is Karissa and her statements. Making a case on Twitter is pointless. Karissa has told me she owes me “nothing” concerning her accusations. Like her accusations, this is also not true.
>When you accuse someone of a crime, when you present falsehoods as facts to harm another, you must provide proof of your claims and address the evidence that shows your words to be false. It’s called accountability. As I said before, I spent the last year trying to persuade myself these acts were done out of misguided self-righteousness. I tried to correct the record, allow voices to be heard, but I was wrong; these attacks were malicious, and they must be challenged.
Chris failed all the charisma checks so he's putting it all on luck
yeah not reading any of this lol
Yeah I never read all that shit either lol but get the general gist of it. Good for him I guess but it's a shame that people have to go to these lengths to clear their names over fucking Twitter drama
Avellone (guy who wrote for a a lot of games including the Fallout series) got his career ruined and labelled as a sexual predator for sending a drunk horny message to some bitch on Twitter like 7 years ago, now he's suing her
>>3066>including the Fallout series
2 and NV (mostly the DLCs)
Hmm, well good for him then.
lol@assuming good faith>>3069
I thought JE Sawyer did the writing for NV
Anyway Avellone is (was) kino for doing Planescape Torment
He's free from the alimony now, but once a man is broken there's no undoing it.
What if they cast him in Fatman meets The Mummy
iirc Sawyer did most of the writing for the base game while Avellone wrote most of the DLCs. Personally I never really liked the writing for FO2 or most of the NV DLCs (too many memes lol), never gotten around to playing Planetscape yet tho despite seeing /v/ worship it for years
>>3087>/v/ worship it for years
So it's shit then?
You could get some bretty good vidya recs from 4/v/ back in the day, no idea what those fags are playing these days tho
The DLC has good moments and characters.
Characters like Joshua Graham and Ulysses have good dialog and memorable plot line that tie into the rest of the game very well.
Old World Blues is memey, but it makes sense in the context and it doesn't break immersion. Overall it's fun.
The one people are mostly divided on is Dead Money, and while it's not the strongest in terms of narrative it does have redeeming qualities like the atmosphere and characters like Dean Domino and Dog/God.
Do people really need to be told what games are good?
are you planning on playing every game ever made?
Normalfags do, yes.
>>3127>it's hard to understand which game is good or not
>>3129>trusts video game marketing>calls me cattle
the nerve of this nigger
A recommendation is just some anon talking about some vidya he likes (isn't that the whole point of this board?), it's not like someone is telling you ”This game is objectively good and you MUST play it to be considered a true gaymur". Unless maybe if it's some particularly tryhard fanbase like Soulsfags or some shit
There IS some essential /v/-core that's assumed knowledge though. Deus Ex, Morrowind, STALKER, etc.
Lists and charts are a way for normies to feel like they belong to a community without them putting in any effort to do their own research or having to partake in any meaningful engagement.
Every /v/anon can tell you about the classics, but your average cuckchan /v/aggot won't go deeper than that.
It's evil; to condense a community to a list or an image is something marketers dream of.
i think youre just a nigger who looks for things to whine about
"charts are evil" what a retarded fuckin statement curl up and eat your own ass until you suffocate or alternatively go back to literally any of the other /v/s with this shit
get a stress ball or some aromatherapy candles or something holy shit
>>3158>It's evil; to condense a community to a list or an image is something marketers dream of.
that's something peddit would do. /v/'s taste is/was kino enough that every /v/-core game is cracked and easily playable without buying.>normie
you are the normalfag

wew, I didn't know about this. I actually always disliked his voice(and how he was treated in BC) but this shouldn't have been the reason he was replaced. But it's also the current Blizz who cares
I also remember they removed a small NPC named Swifty, which was a reference to a pro WoW player the day accusations came against him. Without waiting for him to defend himself or whatever
theres something sinister about this poster something that resembles a facial expression that has sex with everything
