Dezzy commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Director...:

Ugh, I'm not angry I'm just disappointed Nintendolife.

I like how you conveniently left out the words from the IGN guy to place a greater burden on the Nintendo guy too. Maybe you should've included the fact that the IGN guy tried to guilt him by claiming he was speaking for all female gamers. Sloppy reporting.



Dezzy commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

A certain amount of entitlement is good. All people are saying is "we like you as a company so give us reasons to continue supporting you".
It's better to at least vocalise that instead of just quietly letting them make crap that don't sell and lead the company to fail.



Dezzy commented on Interview: Lilian "Milktea" Chen Talks Smash B...:

The reports of women getting harassed anonymously online are essentially worthless. They need to control for the fact that sex is one of the only characteristics about a person that you can tend to infer from someone's username and avatar.
It's not that people target women in particular. It's that trolls and bullies try and latch onto any fact about you they think they can use.
To get a meaningful understanding of whether this problem actually exists, you'd need to compare it in a context where online trolls can also see things like race, sexual preference, maybe hair colour (if you're a redhead). All of these other factors that could be targeted as well.
If you did that, I'd predict you'd actually see whether there's a genuine hostility to certain characteristics or if it's actually (as I'd hypothesize) just a natural bully technique that is incredibly general.
