    White knights! I call upon thee!

    Its pretty sad that a confirmed con artist still gets support. Someone thats been caught saying they actually have no knowledge or interest in video games (therefore they lied to get kickstarter money on the subject). Someone who in a year has only managed to make little over 2 hours of video content in which she stole other peoples footage without sourcing it and that despite saying that the kickstarter money was meant to go to buying and spending time researching these games herself (which obviously never was the case).

    And most importantly, someone who makes terrible Jack Thompson style arguments supported by no evidence.

    She’s someone who saw an opportunity to make easy money, milked a bunch of internet white knights, became a professional victim to promote the whole affair, then never actually delivered on anything.

    But yeah, lets be glad.
