    Back in June, terrible news hit the gaming community, when it turned out that the idol of RPG Codex users worldwide was, in fact, not gay.

    This appalling truth surfaced when certain obnoxious twitter hags decided to dogpile Chris, throwing around accusations of salaciousness and indecency that looked suspicious at best to anyone with functioning cognitive abilities.

    Unfortunately, MCA-senpai threw in the towel immediately in the face of this slander, but there were some who would not let the matter end that way. Among these individuals was RPG Codex community member David Cernat, who was conducting a thorough investigation into the case for long months, gathering evidence and intelligence, until he could finally distill all his autism into the following video:


    I have no idea as to its content or whether it's even good, as the length is way too great for my limited attention span, but I nevertheless commend the effort that went into it, as well as the sentiment that brought it to life in general. An angry, long-winded reaction to having your favourite rock star thrown into the dirt for no good reason is something that I believe should be more widely promoted.

    What the fuck? Start of the video and these chicks are literally whoring themselves live on Twitter? And the guys are also live broadcasting themselves trying to get at these hoes? Is this normal, or is this just 2012 no one knows what the fuck they should and shouldn't be doing on Twitter?

    It's a little known fact outside the codex, but his first name is actually Mary.

    Also, thanks for doing what needed to be done Darth Roxor :salute:

    Regardless of the snide Codexian comments I actually watched the whole thing and think it was investigated quite thoroughly. The author here just uses their own words (or in this case mostly tweets) with little editorializing himself. It's worth a watch at least and wish other so-called journalists had done something similar.

    I watched the first 2 minutes and I can't believe people send so many tweets while at a party/event/whatever.

    Someone please distill all the relevant information into a single post. Not watching a 50 minute video.

    There's a good writeup about the video here, written by a fellow codexer:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Stickless/..._avellones_sexual_assault_claims_against_him/

    Edit: I've now put up a writeup of my own here:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/KotakuInAc...ndepth_exoneration_of_chris_avellone/g6jptaa/

    Edit 2: Since the moderators of r/falloutnewvegas have deleted my writeup for some reason, I've changed the link to a duplicate of it.

    MCA's former employers should be made aware of this, and that they fucked up.

    His original tweet has already been retweeted, wouldn't this be redundant?

    A lot of normies broadcast their entire lives on social media, yes. Basically

    OK, that honestly didn't make things much clearer. I really haven't been following this, so I don't know what most of the original accusations were, or what evidence there was to support them.

    Will someone please write up a 12-15 page account of this whole ordeal, including the original accusations, the evidence that supported those accusations, and the evidence against those accusations?

    Also, please make sure it's double spaced and its citations are formatted according to APA 7th Edition Style guidelines.

    If you do this, I will reward you with a "Thanks!" rating.

    Who gives a fuck if some dude is gay or screwing furries or sucking donkey cock at a German sausage beer festival? Or none of that and living in a gaming monkery lashing himself for unclean thoughts? I don't think this even registered in my brain awareness who he was until now. I'll probably forget shortly.

    Hats off to the person creating this. This is actually a pristine example of digging for the truth in our times, even if taking place in the limited space of gaming/cons. Also an example how fucked up people can become if they deny their past and only see their short-term "benefit". tbh such researches have much more relevance than most realize.
    What a treat.

    Industry people need to learn from Angry Joe. MCA tried to do the " simply tell his side of the story say it was a misunderstanding, apologize if he came across as crappy, etc." routine and it only invited more abuse.



    And just like that...poof.

    Video is well-researched and very informative. The guy who made it did a good job. It also caused me to lose faith in humanity just a little bit more than it was lost before.
