10,000 Hours in MS-Paint No.3 — “Klep”-tomaniac

This one needs a lit­tle in­tro­duc­tion. Patrick Klepek wrote a very whiny ar­ti­cle ba­si­cal­ly say­ing gamers were col­lec­tive­ly re­spon­si­ble for ap­par­ent death threats sent to an EA de­vel­op­er. The only prob­lem; the de­vel­op­er is­n’t an EA em­ploy­ee at all and seem­ing­ly made the whole thing up. 

Klepek, un­de­terred, is­sued the one of the salti­est up­dates to an ar­ti­cle in hu­man history:


The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
John Sweeney is a ter­ri­bly British man with a back­ground in en­gi­neer­ing. He writes long-form ed­i­to­r­i­al con­tent with analy­sis of gam­ing, games me­dia and in­ter­net cul­ture. He also does the oc­ca­sion­al video game ret­ro­spec­tive with a week­ly col­umn about Magic the Gathering thrown in for good mea­sure. He also does most of our in­ter­views for some rea­son, we have no idea why. A staunch sup­port­er of free speech and con­sumer rights; skep­ti­cal of agen­da dri­ven me­dia and sus­pi­cious of un­ac­cou­table au­thor­i­ty but al­ways hope­ful for change.
