This is a conversation that must be had. It is time to talk about the harassment of women in gaming and our role as men in perpetuating this problem. It is time to address the ever present need for equitable treatment within the video game community. It is time for us here at Droid Gamers to join the discourse on GamerGate.
Here at DroidGamers we are always looking to do different and unique things with Android gaming. We've ran our own competitions already and there have been a few instances in the past where other companies have ran their own as well including Major League Gaming. However, if Android gaming were to actually break into the eSports scene on a more serious level, it would be interesting to see what games people would like to be able to compete in.
Two days before its intended launch, Modern Combat 5 was leaked to gamers everywhere via torrent. Gameloft is understandably livid. In a perhaps futile effort to stem the tide of users illegally acquiring the game because of the lack of an official launch, Gameloft rushed to push the game’s release ahead by one day.
Apple has a long history of antagonizing its competitors, be it the award winning "1984" Super Bowl commercial which depicts IBM as a totalitarian menace, the "Toasted" ad which ridicules Intel processors for being too slow, or the long running "Get a Mac" ad campaign which pit a svelt and witty Justin Long ("Mac") against a frumpy and stodgy John Hodgman ("PC"). Given the aforementioned legacy, no one should be surprised when Apple takes jabs at Google and its Android operating system. What is surprising is watching Tim Cook get on stage at WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) to spread misinformation.
