"I work for Reuters. I’m a journalist in the media business.
Back in 2008, I sat in a conference and reviewed some proposals to integrate news sources focused on electronic gaming into our RSS service as niche content providers.
We considered IGN, Gamespot, and a few other syndicated online info feeds.
Now, in order to white label a source as affiliated with Reuters, you need to run through a checklist of ~100 items that are necessary for journalistic integrity. The source and its organization has to score at least a 60 out of 100 for it to be considered fair and unbiased.
These tests are carried out by senior journalists, editors, and investigators.
NONE of the gaming publications scored higher than a 15. For reference, the National Enquirer scored a 38 and the MSNBC blogosphere scored 44.
Some failures included:
- Economic ties with publishers
- Acceptance of favors
- 0% of staff held journalism degree
- Very small percentage worked in other major publications
- No real editing process
- No accountability
tl;dr: Gaming “journalism” is a joke and the laughingstock of reporting media. Continue to read these publications if you want, but assume that everything you read is biased or an outright lie.”"

A few weeks ago, I made a small python program to play my computer keyboard like a 3-rows accordion.
I made a short video to show its features! Here is the code if you want to try it:
Requires Python 3.4, Pygame, as well as this awesome program to load soundfonts and reduce the response time when playing (->advanced options -> Additional output buffer ->0ms)
'Chord A' and 'Chord B', in the video, just indicate components of the chord (root + note A + note B). The mentioned keys simply modify these two notes to change the chords.
