Claptrap Claims Randy Pitchford Stole $12 Million from Gearbox Employees
 

You gotta love this one. PC Gamer is reporting that Claptrap voice actor and former Gearbox staffer David Eddings is claiming on twitter that Randy Pitchford stole $12 Million from Gearbox employees and that at one point Randy physically assaulted him.

Quote:

As an aside, seems a bit conspicuous that he chimed in on my salary but didn't mention anything about the $12M of revenue he siphoned away from the employee royalty pool. FYI - GBX employees are asked to take lower salaries with the promise of royalty shares.
Quote:

I ultimately offered to do it for “free” in exchange for past royalties owed plus an apology for something I’ve never spoken about publicly until now: Randy physically assaulted me in the lobby of the Marriott Marquis at GDC 2017.
You can't make this stuff up.

You know... I think this Randy person might not be the greatest guy!

If this is true he should've come out with it sooner.

One of the best things to come out of the Trump presidency is this gif/meme. This thing pisses of libtards almost as much as Trump does. I used to get txts from my moonbat friends bitching about "Trump this" or "Trump that". I'd always send that meme in response to them. Damn! They hate it. I guess there is something about it that makes them understand that this is how they look when they act like that. Whatever it is... it works. I haven't received any txts involving Trump bitching in awhile. :p

The most amazing part of that gif is that it's not faked in any way. It's an accurate depiction of that individual AND of the lunatic left. :D

'I need some muscle over here!' lolololol

It is pretty funny. I even use it on occasion. That or the video of that wacky lady screaming her head off when Trump got elected. That one's hilarious. But the right has their fair share of nutbags too. Ever see the movie "Jesus Camp"? Fuuuuuuck.

Hey, dude, take a look at my budget build and tell me what you think!

The dam is breaking and there will be a deluge of new Randy stories.

I'm triggered. I can't afford even a budget build, lol. I'm building...and traveling...and blowing cash out of every orifice on my person. :D

I don't believe being well-adjusted and having a job in the video games industry (either as a developer, QA, or "journalist") correlates strongly with each other.

It was some freshman college student in that Triggered gif, ya? You know, sometimes I wish, when a poster here is off on another pat on the back tirade declaring who they are through their words and how much they enjoyed owning the libs or whatever angle they take to get validation, that poster engages in an exercise of changing who the subject of their pronouncement is.

Like, "It's an accurate depiction of that individual AND <insert group here>."

Here's some to get you started!
- of the Jews
- of the blacks
- of the Republicans

Oh you sweet, sweet child. This is no place for that kind of talk.

In all seriousness, that's the point. Extremists and outliers don't define the whole. That Triggered Gif is deployed and achieves its aims the same way government propaganda does. It is both a conversation ender and a power play, because how do you respond to someone that's stopped communicating in words and started communicating in images?

People do stupid shit on college campuses all the time. That's where you are supposed to learn to be a functioning adult and get out of your comfort zone (the military also does this in some capacity). Sometimes with hilarious results, but it isn't a damn benchmark for the rest.

College campus callouts and mining naive freshman for lulz doesn't really do anything for anyone. But winning people over isn't really the point, is it? It's pushing other people down to prop yourself up by whatever means are handy. Hur hur, look at that dumb person not knowing what socialism is! Fucking Freshman!

If you want some actual substantive commentary and discussion from a left perspective, Sam Seder's Majority Report is good for that. It would be nice to see some actual counter-arguments instead of dunking on someone because of the box they were placed in.
