what it's like writing about computer games these days...

Jason Schreier of Kotaku writes that No Man's Sky is delayed until August. The reaction?



Incidentally Sean Murray, the managing director for Hello Games has had death threats as well.

First Gamergate, now this. OK screw this, I'm out.

I.. Don't know who is who in this exchange.

But I do know Kotaku is a huge **** sandwich, and no doubt attracts loads of similar threats..

Anyone who sends a death threat is just a ****ing loser in one way or another. Hurrah Internet! Giving them the impression of anonymity and the feeling that they can get away with that crap.

I may look down on Kotaku for the loaded articles and other crap they churn out; but Death Threats are straight up not cool, and the idiot sending the message seems like he's straight up mentally unhinged.

Considering it was sent through Twitter, however, it's entirely likely that the sender will receive some backlash for this, especially since the twitter handle wasn't censored. (Which I also don't agree with, since it means that both sides are going to get Dogpiled by huge numbers of people.)

The world is full of mentallers. They just have more of a voice now with the internet. Simple solution, make technology less user-friendly.
