@The Wannabe Martial Artist I'm surprised that you haven't heard of it, but in any case, if you haven't already learned more about it by now just Google Blizzard and Hong Kong. And their Diablo Immortal reveal from sometime before that incident had already been making their fans feel contempt towards them.

I hope they do, they've been a disgrace to the entire gaming community for years.
(Promoting Pro-corperate, anti-gaming/SJW narratives.)

Fuck Kotaku

I don't get it though, why buy Gizmodo or whatever the parent company of Kotaku is called. And shut down sites? Is there just some millionaires that wanted to get rid of Deadspin and now Kotaku or what? Doesn't seem like a good investment to me. I don't like some of the Kotaku writers, but i don't really see Kotaku as news site, just individual articles and some are good. Its like i don't like some people on twitter (a lot of people actually) but i am still on there since their are some good articles.

good news. The site was gold back when Joystiq still existed. Once they folded, Kataku transformed into a blog advert, similar to the junk mail I discard from my outside mailbox each day.

IMO, they're hired to do a particular job. If you do not want to do that job, why not get a job for what you want to do instead of shirk your duties. If i'm a programmer that's hired to make databases but I then tell the company "Nah, I want to develop video games" I can't act all shocked when I'm fired. If you want to write vapid bullsh*t about dogs and the like instead of working for the sports site, ask for a transfer to buzzfeed or something. Alternatively make a deal where you do your normal sports things and can occasionally make an article as an internal guest at one of the other news sites under the company. Do what you're hired for or don't be so surprised if you're fired.

Kotaku absolutely sucks ass ever since they flipped from loving games to hating the people that play them.
Their Cancel Culture “journalists” get cancelled? Good. Poetic justice.

Seems quite reasonable for an employer to tell there employees what to do. It's called a job.

I wouldn't miss Shitaku. They deserve to be shut down. They're pure garbage like most of the rest of gaming outlets.

It's their own damn fault if stuck to gaming, then they wouldn't where they are now.
They were too busy being woke, virtue signalling, and fan bashing, all of which drove away their readership. Which why the new bosses had to put in the ads.
Then they told their woke, narrow-tive pushing, virtue signallers to STAY IN LANE. NO POLITICS. NO NARROW-TIVE. JUST GAMING, ONLY GAMING.
They decided to stick it those corporate misogynist incel scum-bags by getting themselves sacked, and it serves them right.

You forgot to mention that if a DMCA is false you can report it to the FBI. A false DMCA is considered perjury under federal law.

Good riddance, honestly. God forbid a writer should feel any kind of responsibility for the words they publish. No editing, no fact-checking, no accountability. Like a screaming classroom of 12-year-olds in detention with a hi-jacked internet connection. Sites like Kotaku are a good example of institutionalized anarchy--yeah, wrap your head around that. Their closure coming down the way it is isn't justice, but it's a good start.

I'll actually be sad if Kotaku shut down. Kotaku UK have promoted smaller, but growing events around the country and I was featured in their article for a chiptune show I played at in November 2016.

I kinda agree with the new owners if kotaku had just stuck to games they wouldn't be in this situation in the first place.

What? Pushing politics in what is supposed to be a videogame website is a bad idea? Who would have thought! /s.

This is absolutely a false report. It has everything to do with the elite CEOs who own these companies flooding the sites with ads. And the editors and journalists at these sites speaking out against it. That's why the guy from Deadspin was fired because he spoke out against the ads.

Kotaku shutting down sounds too good to be true.

kotaku has nothing to do with gaming.

Kind of need kotaku, because of their hyper-sensitivity, they relate well to the absolutely batshit crazy people working in game development these days; which is why they get all the juicy deets on whats going on in these studios.

Everyone knows why kotaku went down it's because it's a shit site with shit articles.

Kotaku sucks. Good riddance.
You will cum at the sight of this fully grown man child.his blissful scrotum face
Rubbing against your inner thigh
His eyes
Betraying you into believing his lies
Dont fall for this man
Cause he is a dumpster fire.

Good riddance. They can take their fake games “journalism” and SJW crap with them. IGN can go next.
Podo - Month ago
Lies. They weren't fired for SJW reasons. They were fired for speaking out against the site's use of obnoxious ads

There's a gaming site called Kotaku?
The only Kotaku I know is full of woke crap about everything but games cause the cool guys that work there are too ashamed to admit they like games.

The real question is if this will be a wake up call for "professional" gaming journalists.

I think more game studios should boycott kotaku. It's one thing to defend freedom of speech but it's another thing to encourage the sheer amount of stupidity that stemmed from most kotaku articles.

I hope Kotaku dies and all of those stupid journalists never work again.

I don't agree with a lot of what Jason Schreier says, but I do think losing his leaks is a pretty big blow. He has been very good for getting information out there and helping us essentially weaponize against greedy publishers faster.
