For those who want the short story about this without listening to 25 minutes of this fucktard smugly talking in constant sarcasm about it:
basically the people making the game hired a WOMAN (GASP!!!) as their new community director who would be having the most interaction with the fans and the community of shitheads who backed this game collectively lost their shit when they found she was somewhat outspoken on feminist issues, believed in better attention to gender issues in video games, and dared draw a picture of Mega Man, err, I mean Might 9 as a female. The usual slut shaming, rape threats, and pseudo-intellectual FEMINISM DEFEATED bullshit resulted.
Of course, the community insists that calling her a bitch and slut and whore is totally cool because it's not because of sexism, mind you, but because they're pretty sure she is not very familiar with the austistic-level details of Mega Man's history and might maybe possibly be in a relationship with one of the people involved in the project, which means of course she got her job because she's fucking someone, not because of her talent. NOT A SEXIST CRITIQUE AT ALL.
Probably because the non-reviews still have actual review-oriented statements and will give an honest opinion or two after the usual sarcastic non-joke joke.
Thanks for the Cliffsnotes. There's no way I'm listening to this asshole for more than a minute. Seriously, what year is it? Back in 4th grade, sure. I'm sure more girls would play Chun Li and more boys would play Ryu. When my friends found out that Samus was a woman, some of them freaked out, you know, because of cooties. Then we (hopefully) grew the fuck up.
I'd like to see the reaction if they made a completely hetero-alpha-male game that featured the genetalia giggling around when the protagonist runs in spandex or whatever tight suits they wear. With all the bouncing boobs in games and all these days, I think us dudes deserve equal treatment. :)
Oh and @hooker: I used to work with those RLM reviewers at a theatre back in Milwaukee (the one that's in several Plinkett reviews); we eventually became jaded towards all movies, no matter how good they actually are. Their sarcasm comes from a real place and it's from the other side of the projector.
I'm not complaining about sarcasm. I love sarcasm! What I can't stand is the specific, incredibly lazy type of sarcasm where you say the exact opposite of what you mean in wink-wink voice.
Don't most videogames star beefy ripped dudes running around shirtless already? I see the same argument with women's costumes in comic books when the dude's outfits are mostly the same.
Equating men's and women's fashions 1 for 1 though is being overly objective though. You don't go into a nightclub complaining that all the men should be in bicycle shorts and plunging V shirts, and most women prefer trunks on guys at the beach over speedos.

He actually uses a tweet she posted last summer expressing disapproval for rape games as part of the damning evidence against her "crazy feminist social agenda."
The dream of a good old fashioned classic Megaman game where you rape your way through every level is dead thanks to this crazy bitch. Demand a refund!

I can literally see the shit on his heels just by hearing his voice. The entitlement in his voice is actually making me hallucinate.

Can we at least agree that the Raggedy Xie Ann artwork is pretty hideous?

I guess bashing Anita $arke$ian was getting a little old hat, so shitbaby gamers have found a new woman to hate! Oh what fun.

How much do you want to bet that these are the same people who complain about how feminists are too whiny

This guy edited a 25 minute video of dumb misogyny that confirms why women feel harassed and disrespected in the game industry.
I think the more funny disconnect is that he made a 25-minute speculative rant about how unqualified she is to draw cartoon robots but she's apparently the one with an agenda.

I really do hope that Call gets a more active role in the game, unlike Roll. And I hope this guy shits out all his blood in anger over it.
It'd be fun to have Call as a playable character in the game.
As it stands the game will have Call as the second-player character in co-op mode, plus a single stage dedicated to her. They really should put her in as fully playable like Beck is.
It's a win-win. It'd be fun for us and it'd make the jerk in the video really mad.

So do all of these morons get their ideas on how game development studios function from Grandma's Boy? They hired this woman to man the forums. Naturally, this means she'll be rewriting the entire game.
I don't know how Kickstarter refunds work, but if I were the developers, I'd just refund the lot of these whiny little shits, remove their forum privileges and other rewards, and call it a day. I'd like to see some Youtube videos of manchildren screaming "I demanded a refund in the Kickstarter comments because they hired a woman who thinks rape is bad, and they gave me the refund! This is an injustice!!!!"
The kickstarter comments are a goldmine http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightyno9/mighty-no-9/posts/68 9758

Women have at least two cable channels dedicated to them. Isn't that enough?

As much of a douche as this guy is, I completely agree that the social justice tumblr feminist crowd is a fucking cancer that needs to die.
Here's an article on social justice in general regarding racism accusations against Ted Rall, likening the whole movement to puritan public square stocks.
Well hey, if you're suggesting/assuming that the aforementioned group is automatically referring to women, then you're the one with the sexism issues, friend, not me.
i stopped reading ruthlessreviews when matt cale stopped writing for them. does he contribute anymore?

Neckbeard-types are always crying greasy tears over "tumblr SJWs" but I fail to see how they're worse than the paranoid neo-nazis on 4chan's /pol/, or the sexists and racists that are all over reddit.
MacGyver Style Bomb
Remember when people complaining about hipsters became more obnoxious and numerous then any actual hipsters?

Wait, wasn't the big point Anita made that everyone here agreed with was Nintendo's decision to replace a female lead with Fox McCloud? What if some backwards visor wearing guy posted on tumblr how his aunt got him a job working on the next Tomb Raider and how they should replace Laura Croft with some dude? Would anyone bat an eye if people ragged on some male employee announcing he never liked the franchise he's working on reviving?
I really don't care about this game one way another since Mega Man hasn't been fun for close to 20 years and early kickstarter backers deserve whatever shenanigans are pulled on them, but it bugs me when people invoke social justice and past prejudices as a means to indulge in the same hate they're supposedly fighting against.
Her art really is hideous though. The game is supposed to be some Astro Boy/Lego style and she comes up with some gender swapped Tim from Braid monstrosity channeling ginger Raggedy Ann wielding a nail bat? Something like this would have been fine:
but then that would probably rile up the same idiots who claim Ms Pac Man is sexist for wearing a bow and makeup.

This dude does the sarcasm so over-the-top that I'm not even sure what his fucking point is supposed to be.
