As much as I like Jalopnik, Oppositelock, Car Buying, Flight Crew, and Kitchenette, I will no longer be visiting any of those sites: http://bgr.com/2015/07/17/how-gawker-helps-blackmailers/
Gossip website Gawker regularly walks the fine line between entertaining, edgy content and completely unethical, sleazy trash. On Thursday, the website went way, way over that line by helping a bla...

Eh, this is right within Gawker's morals. They were always a "harder core" gossip site (when compared to TMZ and classic Perez Hilton). Their subsidiaries, while fairly independent, are sadly dragged down with them. The only reason that they came out on the correct side of GG was to protect journalism in general, right alongside VOX and AOL.

Was Gawker wrong and terrible? Yes! Should people withdraw support? Yes!

But I'm not going to pretend to be disappointed with a site doing what it always does.

They're only high school students, what can I say?

Panel Event Notices  - 
 
I'm going to be hosting a panel at Furthemore in Tysons Corner, VA on May 31 at 1:30 PM to introduce new players to Ingress and get them started with the game.  I'm hoping to try to get a mission set up as well but there aren't many portals around the hotel.

An accident at the CERN Laboratories in Geneva has unleashed a strange set of occurrences. Now leaked Niantic Labs Scanner technology in the form of the ...

Yeah, we kinda had the bad luck that everything was scheduled that weekend, including the anomaly.

Okay, seriously, #Gamestop, we need to have a chat about how you keep on selling the Majora's Mask 3DS's.  First you screw up pre-orders big time so that most of your customers cannot get their hands on them.  Now you keep bringing them back briefly in stock, but at more and more expensive bundles that come with a bunch of crap that I do not need. 

Today was definitely a day for excess.  A bundle that has the console, 4 games (only 2 are Zelda-related), a players guide, and 8 Amiibos (4 are Zelda-related) is ridiculous for many of your consumers.  I have already bought Majora's Mask, Smash Bros, and A Link Between Worlds.  I am not interested in Monster Hunter 4, I have the Amiibos I like, I do not want a players guide, I just want the 3DS XL!  There is no reason why even if I spotted this in stock, that I should have to drop $500 just to get my hands on the console, and then have to deal with the headache of figuring out what to do with the stuff I do not need or want!

Please, Gamestop, just sell the Majora's Mask 3DS XL by itself, stop with the idiotic bundles.

On the flip side, #Nintendo, please make more Majora's Mask 3DS XL's so that your consumers can buy them and to crash the scalper market.

+Marcel Jones​ I had no idea the backlog was that bad. Admittedly, who knows how much stock is on those ships either.
