What are these other stories about him that were glossed over on the FB post?

He grabbed the ass of a woman hard when he was vacationing in Ibiza, around 2012. Apparently he did it out of a desire to establish dominance and to show he wasn't going to be taken advantage of because the girl asked him to buy her a drink. Afterwards, he tried to weasel out of what he did when he got called out on GAF about it, more or less trying to give the impression the girl was asking for it.

In the end he got pissed and started to ban people who would mention the issue.

Lol the drama. Woman gets drunk with a male friend goes to his hotel room to take a shower. Naked male friend joins her in shower. She says no and male friend then grows cold with her. That's pretty much standard behavior. When I was younger two of my male friends got drunk. One took a shower in his underpants to shake off the drunkenness. The other male friend appeared behind him in his underpants to shower out the hangover too. I'm not saying its an acceptable thing to do but drunks in party towns, it happens right? It's not like he raped her. What are these other stories about him that were glossed over on the FB post?

I agree it is more tame than some are making it out to be. However, Evilore has a LONG history of this shit. This is merely the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Who doesn't live in fear of evilore's power and money?

  • So this guy has a ton of money from owning an internet forum and he still can't get laid. Without doing dumb shit such as what he did here. LOL Yeah, you're a fuckin' NERD buddy.
  • People know this guy's a pervy creep, and yet this girl was willing to go back to a hotel with him? Yeah, you're an idiot. May as well go hang out with OJ Simpson too.
  • Even if he wasn't a creep, this girl is at a hotel alone with another guy besides her boyfriend? That's not suspicious at all. Guys always like to hear their girlfriends or wives are alone with another guy in a hotel.

She may not have been that aware at the time. Plus, she needed someone to show her around the city. It isn't that uncommon.

So a nerd got in trouble because he thought some chick wanted him and she didn't, and then a bunch of other nerds decided to quit his website to somehow stand up for the chick who didn't want to have sex with him (because standing up on an internet forum CHANGES THE WORLD) and now the internet's largest gathering of nerds is shut down until someone else buys the rights to it.

Such issues.

Obviously rape and harassment are not cool at all. However, these kinds of stories are really hard to judge without having been there and knowing exactly what went down.

That story Steel was telling about him grabbing a girl's ass....again, without being there, it's hard to know if it's a real offense or not. Believe it or not, when people flirt and go out together, people grab ass. It's crazy. It's in the context of how it's done. For example, I was out with my girlfriend and her sister one time partying and having drinks, joking around. And my girl's sister comes up behind me and grabs my ass right in front of my girlfriend and says "Wow, he really does have a nice ass" and we all started laughing. Now, obviously if you do that to someone you just met...that's not going to go over well especially when it's a guy doing it to a female. Like in this guys case....were they in the middle of some heated flirting, he grabbed her ass and THEN she decided to freak out? Or did he just meet her that second and just go right for an ass grab?

There was another time in high school, one of my best friends was getting a blowjob from a girl in the school bathroom. A teacher walked in and found them. This girl was known as being one of the dirtier girls in the school. But she got scared and didn't want her parents to go nuts on her, so she lied and said my friend FORCED her. He spent a year in juvenile detention for that lie. This was luckily before the internet blew up. If that was today, his name would be ruined thanks to social media with everyone all up in everyone's business.

As I said before, these days people cry wolf over everything, even the smallest incident. You also see people straight up LYING about things just because they have some kind of weird issues going on where they want attention, or to gain fame out of it...then like dominos you see others jump in on the bandwagon. You have to be real careful today because if you have a falling out with a girl she can ruin your reputation just out of spite, especially if you're some kind of public figure.

Legacy of Kain!!! Probably the best voice acting and story telling in a game TO THIS DAY! Mixed with Zelda/Metoid style gameplay! ERGFLIAJENRIPGUZYHDFLIUGVBNDFTLIHUXBNSRIYH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This isn't the first time this has happened. There have been multiple accounts from people who've encountered him.

Also the girl wasn't taking a shower, she was lying on the shower floor throwing up.

I'm back. Life is throwing a few curveballs at the moments, and I stayed away from most message boards and social media stuffs trying to regroup. But I saw that GAF just imploded so I figured I'd pop in and make sure no one died in the explosion.

I refuse to get my hopes up about it. That twitter post wasn't enough. Hell, it wasn't even a picture of Kain, just Razeal the ethereal douche (I wasn't a fan of his).

So the GAF story is quite interesting. Evilore sounds like a pretty awful douchebag, but like I said a few months ago in my Finding Justice blog, internet lynch mob justice always makes me nervous. With that cosplay chick, all the evidence in the world was there and I still saw stories get exagerrated about her. I'm sure it is happeneing again with this guy. Definitely seems like there's a lot of history though, so hopefully he deserves whatever he gets, though I wonder if it'll be anything more than just losing GAF. That honestly sounds like a bigger blow to the industry and culture than a blow to him. I don't know a thing about his financial situation though, so who knows?

I'm just happy we don't have to worry about picking up refugees. We are all initially Gamespot refugees who founded a small commune on a distant uninhabited island. Anarchy rules.

Seems like the girl making the shower allegations got into a physical relationship with him AFTER that. So I don't get women. Now two years later, after a breakup this comes up. I'm still sure he is an asshole but this whole thing sounds weird.

The same thing happened to one of Weinstein's victims. Some people are mentally unstable. But being honest, now that I am in my late 20s (holy shit!) I'm starting to understand that people often make very poor relationship decisions.

The pedo shit makes me uncomfortable as well.

The internet ate my post  Sad

I basically just said that this whole sexual harrassment thing is getting out of hand in my opinion.  There's enough partial nudity, flirting and sexual inuendo at parties these days (I would presume) that I don't think you'd have to be too surprised when you end up drunk in a hotel room with someone of the opposite sex, that they might try their luck, clothed or otherwise.  And if you decline, having the other party turn sour doesn't qualify as sexual harrassement in my book.  The fact that she was taking a shower, not vomiting in one, and that she ended up in a relationship of some sorts with this guy swiftly afterwards doesn't do her credibility much good.  This guy might be an idiot, but one a case by case basis, I really don't think any harm was done here.

It's like there is no stage between 'innocent fun' and 'sexual harrassement' these days.  If you step over a very unclear and personal line, willingly or by accident, all of a sudden you're a sexual offender.

Anyhow, sounds to me that NeoGaf was just looking for a way to rid themselves of this guy and this was as good a reason as any other.
