In this episode I chat with Lead Concept Artist at Armor Games & Freelance Reviews Writer at GamePro Media Ashley Riot. We talk about the differences between been on both sides of the games scene. We also share our thoughts on "looks over substance" in regards to female journalists and female developer.

There will be a short break between this episode and the next one.

Thanks for the support guys over the past few days.

This is immediately what I thought, and then I thought some more about this - since Ashley Riot isn't exactly what I would call an influential character. There really isn't anyone else quite like him.

The lack of Vagrant Story in this thread is disappointing.

With that said, that is one badass name.

Ashley, was your idea the hook for your game, or do you already have good ideas for the mechanic? Just so you know (I don't mean to patronize), it's been done a lot before. The most recent game doing it just got a rerelease. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QLp7q18iZk

I completely disagree that Gabe 'apologized' about anything. His original complaint was the PS3's architecture makes his job harder, and that Sony designed an obtuse CPU in order to force developers to lead their coding with the PS3 in mind so that PS3 SKUs would be superior. That didn't really work out like that because their installbase was shit, but regardless, Gabe didn't change his mind whatsoever from the looks of the E3 conference.

As for Jade Raymond, that comic strip is mocking Ubisoft, not Raymond, I really don't see why it's offensive, I didn't at the time either. They 'whored' her out to sell their game. If anyone's action were questionable, it was Ubisoft's.

Sorry sir, but it is offensive. It implies that she had no talent whatso ever as a creative member of their team. It's direct defamation of her personal character. She always appeared in very modest clothing; she always presented the material professionally. It is no fault of her own that Ubisoft decided to push her into the limelight. If the artist wanted to insult Ubisoft, and they used a faceless/unamed girl engaging in those acts then I see the justification, but she never did anything to warrant attacks on her character.
