WAITING FOR THE BRIGADE OF DOWNVOTES 
NOT SORRY, JUST SAYIN 

WAITING FOR THE BRIGADE OF DOWNVOTES 

NOT SORRY, JUST SAYIN 

in february I started artemis, a guild for women. long story short, taken badly.

a day or two later a guy recognized my nick and called me out. yeah, that’s EXACTLY what I want to deal with. changed it. 

then I got chosen for ehug’s pub-cast where kotlguy and someone else casted a pub I played 

I realized how dangerous it was to be recognized 

I changed my not only my steam nickname, but MY “GENDER,” for my sake and theirs 

you know who should be talking gender? 

sure as hell NOT totalbiscuit

and SURE AS HELL NOT REDDITORS 

Jesus FUCKING CHRIST every FUCKING time there’s some gender politics bullshit on reddit it’s like 95% guys who think they know what’s right and wrong for our goddamn sakes 

yeah, how about we talk about the designs of these women characters 

INSTEAD OF THE WAY THAT WOMEN ARE SPECIFICALLY TREATED IN THE REALM OF GAMING 

AND HOW GUYS ALWAYS, ALWAYS TALK OVER WOMEN IN ALL OF THESE CONVERSATIONS 

yeah??? 

what’s great about tsw is that yeah it’s a dark, serious, mature game, it has some spooky shit and it’s a legitimately well-mad game with good stories 

and at the same time

the devs and players

seem to share

the same sentiment

about how serious

this game is ACTUALLY

supposed to be 

(RATED M FOR DISTURBING CONTENT.)

Two days until the Kickstarter for The Black Watchmen ends. 

Which means it’s your last chance to join what’s going to be one of the most ridiculously expansive ARGs before all the prices jump up. 

Apparently it’s a $25 minimum pledge for access to the game for one year, but you’ll probably get access to a few pre-game things if you pledge anything. 

Hope you’ll consider it. 

dota 2 fans: well my life is completely gone but that's okay
league fans: fuck. I hate my life. why the fuck am I doing this. I am fucking terrible. fuck this game. I hate myself. I hate everything
GamerGate is so fucking stupid. Both sides are fucking stupid.

Pro-Quinn peeps are quick defend Quinn. She’s not a saint. She’s a terrible, selfish person.

But this didn’t start with anything that put her as “evil” on the moral compass.They ratted her out for stupid things that have nothing to do with what she’s legitimately done wrong. And it was, in fact, a conspiracy, as Quinn proved. 

You can hate Quinn, but hate what the community is doing.

This highlights a lot of wrongdoing in “gaming journalism” and its community. 

Thanks to a player contributing enough for a user-unique mission, the game is now funded! Woo! 

This is really great because the staff so far has been so communicative and is obviously so passionate about this project. They even gave us a pre-game operation that led up to a post-op discussion of the ARG elements of the game.

Basically, everyone’s really excited to see this go through and become a reality.  

Join in — go throw in some money and get in on the game! 

to clarify
things I don't mind:
league of legends
its players
its pros
things I mind:
riot's business ethics
the company's history
the way riot treats its players
how riot's priorities seem fucked
riot not actually improving the game itself
and how they just keep fixing the meta so it lacks innovation
riot fixing the pro scene so badly
just riot in general
fuck riot

friendly reminder that valve released modding tools for dota 2 and of course someone is trying to recreate league of legends in the source engine 

it’s called defenseofthelegends and this person is working hard for the glory of gaming shenanigans so please follow and support them 

Hyrule Warriors Preview Challenge:

Find an article or review that doesn’t constantly compare this game to the original Legend of Zelda series, as if this game can only exist in relation to the original format of Zelda games and not just as a fun standalone. 

why play any of those other overrated big developer solo games when you can just buy The Secret World for $30 and have five times as much fun
  • modern fantasy sci-fi 
  • class? the only class you’ll have is being a classy-ass motherfucker shooting whatever the hell weapons and combos and spells you want 
  • it’s an mmo so if you’re stuck yell and someone will probably come and help you and it’ll be fun 
  • GOOD DIVERSITY. I’M NOT JUST SAYING THAT. 
  • the eye of the illuminati is a meme-loving fuck 
  • you can easily get like 100 hours out of each solo campaign and there’s a few of them before you pay for new campaigns but it’s so worth it 
  • only $30 and you just pay once play forever 

And this guy has the answers, submitted to the police - and, by extension, the FBI. 

(You’ll never guess who’s in the middle of it… nah, you will, it’s her ex.)

I’ll be playing The Secret World, a pretty cool MMO that’s modern-day fantasy-sci-fi with some historical references and cool missions.

If enough people come, I might win money! Help me get money for college!  

my favorite part of smash bros is that it’s honestly just becoming a celebration of iconic video game characters and nintendo doesn’t give a flyinhg shindingle that they’re handing out publicity to other studios, they just want to have fun and throw in as many characters as possible  

isn’t that literally just the best thought
