Webcomic Beacon #377 - Interview with JT of Between Failures


Hopefully you guys can forgive my nervous and repetitive use of like and you know.  XD

  • Question: You do know Anita was caught on video admitting she doesn't play video games, right? And there's a chat log where Zoe admits to abusing her ex-boyfriend when they were together. - Anonymous

    I’m not even sure how Anita Sarkessian is involved in this whole mess, other than that gamers keep dredging her up like she’s some sort of all-powerful puppetmaster of the secret anti-video game cabal. I’ve said this before, Anita Sarkeesian is a hack. Her reviews are boring and, from what I’ve seen, pretty superficial. She offers only the barest surface gloss of feminist thought, and it’s unfortunate that she’s cornered the market on feminist video game critique because if a truly interesting, insightful feminist like Sarah Haskins or Rebecca Cohen were doing these reviews instead, then they would probably be dynamite and give us a lot more meat than “It’s bad when it’s possible to kill female NPCs.” Sarkessian is obviously a marketer at heart. She saw an empty niche and realized early on that gamers were such insecure babies that she could ride a tidal wave of hysterical indignation to success by making the mildest, most milquetoasty criticisms of your precious video games. You gamers made her into this bogeyman. You guys got played.

    As for Zoe Quinn, since chat logs sound like a totally reliable source that can’t ever be faked, I’m not at all surprised to hear this, because the enfants terrible of almost any industry are all relentless narcissistic self-aggrandizers with no sense of empathy. However, I don’t really care because about either of these issues, because I’m not supporting Quinn or Sarkeesian. I don’t care about either of them or about any of your boring inside baseball pissing matches. I care that gamers are hilarious hysterical babies who, despite years of pretty blatant collusion and corruption in “video game journalism” (HAHA talk about putting on airs), suddenly care about “journalistic ethics” because some chick went on a worldwide fuck tour. (Didn’t Quinn actually kickstart her worldwide fuck tour? I remember reading some kickstarter with Aureline and we were both “Yup, she’s definitely asking for money for a worldwide fuck tour.” How is it possible that we were the only two people to figure out that she was using the money for a fuck tour?) You guys brought this all down on yourselves by being ridiculous.
