Jessica Price: Fired from ArenaNet, good riddance! 

And just for the record, ANY attempt to defend Jessica Price is an attempt to excuse bullying behavior by a developer irrespective if she is male or female, makes you just as bad the person doing the bullying. And all the journalists and video game publications attempting to defend Price:

And then paint her as the victim should be beyond ashamed of themselves. Defending your narrative is more important than your journalistic integrity, it would seem. Ironically enough the very same people who have repeatedly said that people should be held accountable for what they do and say online are now defending her. Especially the shit stains over at Kotaku who call themselves journalists:

Naughty Dog’s “Agenda”

I have been a Naughty Dog fan for almost a decade now, I loved the Uncharted, The Last of Us, Jax & Daxter and Crash Bandicoot. Not only is Naught Dog responsible for creating some of my favourite franchises, but helped me get me out of my gaming slump and reintroduced me to the PlayStation platform. Having said that Naughty Dog is a totally different company than it was 10 years ago, many high-level people left the company including writers like Amy Hennig who wrote many of the stories for some of these amazing games. One can argue that these might have left the company in a worse or better position, but you cannot argue that their quality and level of game creation is unmatched in the industry. So it really saddens me that I am writing this article…
