Dark Dreams

Drew Karpyshyn wrote the first Mass Effect script and was heavily involved with the second, but quit the Mass Effect team midway through to work on the recently released Star Wars: The Old Republic. Posting on SomethingAwful (via Gameranx), he tells a tantalising tale of Dark Energy, species preservation and humanity’s unique genetic advantages, touched on at several points in Mass Effect 1 and 2. You might remember Dark Energy from the Haelstrom mission in Mass Effect 2, or from the Arrival DLC. According to various growly internet hintings, it makes the Reapers look about as menacing as a slightly wilted Greek salad. “The Reapers’ goal was to find a way to stop the spread of Dark Energy which would eventually consume everything. That’s why there was so much foreshadowing about Dark Energy in ME,” Karpyshyn wrote. “The Reapers as a whole were ‘nations’ of people who had fused together in the most horrific way possible to help find a way to stop the spread of the Dark Energy. The real reason for the Human Reaper was supposed to be the Reapers saving throw because they had run out of time. Humanity in Mass Effect is supposedly unique because of its genetic diversity and represented the universe’s best chance at stopping Dark Energy’s spread. “The original final choice was going to be ‘Kill the Reapers and put your faith in the races of the galaxy in finding another way to stop the spread with what little time is left’ or ‘Sacrifice humanity, allowing them to be horrifically processed in hopes that the end result will justify the means.’

So. Let’s do a little experiment.
After keeping a folder on my desktop for the last couple weeks called “another day at the office” that I save shitty comments in, I’ve been wondering what to do with them. I was thinking I’d eventually make some kind of weird art thing with them, but finally I think I’ve got it.
Here is a bingo sheet. The comments are all ones I’ve seen hundreds of times on articles written by or featuring women, and all are pulled from Another Day At The Office. They all focus on shitty things directed at women SPECIFICALLY. Obviously, Attention Whore is the free space. 
Let’s fill these out every time a *major* games press outlet features a woman as a subject or writer of an article, and the article has more than 24 comments. 
Furthermore, if you find an article on a man that actually gets bingo, let’s compare how often that happens vs when it happens with women. 
Let’s keep track of this and be ready to shove it in the faces of anyone who says that harassment has nothing to do with gender. Let’s do it when they say it doesn’t happen. 
Let’s play a game. This is basically the Bechdel test but for comments sections.
